I bought two pair of these JVC speakers for my project. I built a custom desk for my new office and used a factory Ford AM FM radio deck. I used these for the front and rear speakers. For the money, these speakers have excellent clarity and a very nice appearance. I mainly liked them for the all black grille covers. I didn't want those crazy wild colors for my application ( stained Oak background ). The price was right, shipping was free, had them in a week or so. I am not a huge bass fan. I like more treble for sound, but the bass does seem good quality in these speakers. At about a quarter volume, you can hear music very clearly and loudly. I didn't notice any distortion or hissing noises. Note this install is in a building and not automotive. I would not hesitate, however, to put a set of these in my vehicle. Again, for the money, you can't go wrong. JVC is a good brand and these speakers work well..

I was loaned these JVC car stereo speakers while waiting for my bespoke custom built speakers to arrive, with JVC having a very standard fit I knew these would be suitable and wouldn't leave gaping holes in the interior of the car.
110 watts gives the risk of them blowing if the volume is turned up loud but I'm getting older and don't use my car as a mobile disco these days.
They were easy to fit into the existing speaker recesses, wiring is straightforward and was accomplished in a quick and easy manner. I have since removed them for my own speakers to go in the car and that was a simple job too with no nasty surprises at any stage.
Sound pumps from the speakers to the right level for the size of the car and any adjustments made to the system (bass, treble, real sound) are reflected in the sound coming from the speakers at every level.
Clarity is not affected at any volume, when listening to the radio in the car talking plays etc. are as clear as music so I would call these a very good all round car speaker. At first attempt there was a slight background hum but that disappeared when I went round ensuring all wires were connected tight.
There are no mesh covers included with the speakers but this is becoming more common to buy those separate so I wasn't surprised by this omission.
For the cost price of £22 the pair I'd suggest these are excellent value for the money paid and they come with a recommendation from me.
These speakers sit below the shelf in the back of my little car, screwed into place with the smallest, yet very strong screws.
They offer 110watts of power, each, which gives a mind bending 220watts. This may not sound a lot to the heavy metal fans out there but these are in a car not hung on the walls in Wembley Stadium.
They are only 16cm in diameter, in a circular fashion with four little brackets arranged around the speakers casing so that they can be attached to either the doors of of the car or, like me, on the back shelf.
They can rustle a bit when the volumes exceeds the three quarter Mark, but as I tend to have mine lower than that I have no issues with this at all.
They did not come with mesh covers, for some reason, but I already had them on the shelf which, luckily for me, and a little bit of messing about, these speakers fitted lovely. The wires were already connected to the stereo anyway so there was no hassles in trying to thread wire through the entire car.
They are made of the same sort of material that all speakers are made of, so they not going to be any good if they get wet. Plus, even though it is tempting I know not to push the central dome in as this really will give the speakers a bit of a rattling sound, which is not good at all
There's not a lot else I can say about these speakers as I think I've said all I can.
They are easy to fit. They are a good price for a branded pair, selling for about £20 for the pair. They give out a cracking sound quality without any real stutters of crackling.
So, if you're after a nice set of speakers than these are well worth looking at.
