Dual DLS6540 DLS Series 6-1/2" Quadaxial 4-Way Car Audio Speaker Pair
Dual DLS6540 DLS Series 6-1/2" Quadaxial 4-Way Car Audio Speaker Pair is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dual DLS Series drivers may be a best kept secret.Bought these to replace the factory pooh that came in my truck. The difference was like night and day! After installing a JVC KDx310BT along with a Boss Riot 600 watt amp and a 10" PYLE BlueWave sub. I came to the conclusion that the weak link all along was the speakers in my doors. There was no separation in the mix, no definition. So I bought these on the cheap from another site. Remembering that a vehicle I traded in when I pulled the stereo and replaced them with the previous version of this model speaker. Sad to say they sounded better then my Polk components which cost over 100 dollars a set. I paired these with the corresponding DLS6950 6x9 4 ways and have to say, It will run with any system out there! I like my bass crisp and the highs to be crystal clear and David Gilmores guitar solo's to sound like I am in front of him at a concert! Guess what, It does all that! These truly are the best kept secret in Car Audio. PS, You may be like me, contemplating putting a 300 watt amp to power these to full potential!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from They get the job doneI used these to replace the blown factory speakers in my 2000 Durango. They do a decent job, but not as much low end or detail as the factory units. They're billed as 4-way speakers, OK, I guess. They have a floating mid and tweeter with 1st order crossover but I don't see a 4th element. They sound OK, a bit sibilant and lacking detail in cymbal or higher pitch guitar sounds. Fit was nice with very minimal modification to the original factory mounting ring. I ended up drilling four holes into the mounting ring and mounting 8/32 screws from the rear side of the ring. I secured those with nuts tightened up with blue threadlock and then cut off the excess using bolt cutters. I added some vinyl weather stripping to the back side and front before reinstalling them. Fit was great, sound is acceptable, price is killer.Overall I'm happy with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Audio Nirvana!In preparing to upgrade the speakers in my 2014 Mazda 6 Touring, I wanted to look for something that would complement the prior installed HERTZ tweeters in the door. Little did I know I would find the PERFECT MATCH in style and sonic clarity in speakers that cost way less than the tweeters themselves. To be honest, I ORIGINALLY chose the DLS6540 because they matched the color scheme I was going after (even though you would not see the speakers behind the grill), however I PURCHASED these gems because of the 4-way speaker setup, and the sub $25 / pair price, and MAN...this was an AWESOME DECISION!When I had them installed, the audio tech was concerned that the output wasn't near as loud as the factory (25w) speakers. I understood his concern, yet requested he continue. Later he discovered the the front door speakers were part of the baffle and would require them to be cut out in order to fit these in. I decided that for my objective to be reached, this was a worthy sacrifice. When they were all installed, and the factory stereo unit settings were adjusted UPWARD to accommodate the low wattage output, I wasn't prepared for the final result...SHEER AUDIO NIRVANA! There was a bass rumble that were implied by the factory speakers, yet did not manifest, and sweet middle and high tones that provided fidelity that was now shown to have been missing. In the end, they provided a pseudo-surround type of audio field that put a HUGE GRIN (that symbolized I was WISE in choosing these speakers and replacing the factory ones, in spite of the concerns) that would not leave my face, even to this day. These beauties were beasts in disguise and FILLED the automotive cabin with sounds FAR SUPERIOR to the factory ones!I can without question, doubt or regret HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Dual DLS6540 Speakers for your vehicle!
