Speaker is just as described, and sounds as good as a smaller/only one speaker can... with a dash pad vent and the dash metal frame in the way. But you also do get a good sound reflectivity from the windshield and fills the air well. It actually sounds much better than the old pioneer 6x9s I removed from the package tray.
Then only install issue I had, that the description does not cover is that the speaker mounts to the defrosting vents peg mounts so you have to remove or break off the original speaker peg mounts in order for it to work... so I hope that I will never need those again or I am out of luck.
I have this speaker hooked up to the Retro Sound radio (Part # CS4B) and did not have any issues with the wiring.
