I just installed the 7.25" in my 08. I had booms and Clarions 300 watt 4 channel amp. Nice but wanted more so I upgraded speakers. Still running HK and amp. These sound nice I like them nice improvement over the Booms. Very easy install.
The one complaint I have is the grills. I liked the steel mesh with the Booms. I don't like the looks of the plastics grills. I wish they would upgrade the grills. Oh and if you're reading this I'd be happy to demo/test a set for ya!
Anyways nice bang for the money now well just have to see about longevity and reliability.
