Default MB Quart PVL-216 Component review

This is a review of the MB Quart PVL-216 6.5" component set shown here:

MB Quart PVL 216 (PVL216) 6-1/2" 2-Way Premium Component Speakers

Here is what is powering these speakers:

http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...s-ZXi80.4.html

First Impressions (speakers outside door):

First thing you notice about these speakers is the quality of the build. Everything is either made out of metal or a very heavy/durable plastic. The cone looks very clean and doesn't have a mass of glue all over it. Also even without the Speaker cover these look very sexy. The tweeters are very beefy. Everything on them is either metal or the tweet itself. The cover for the tweet is extremely strong. You will have to take a hammer to it before it breaks.

(Speakers in doors without sound deadener):

I do want to mention that you do not want to over tighten the speakers to the baffle. Doing so puts stress on the speakers cone and can cause distortion. Also suggest sealing these speakers off by applying speaker foam tape between the speaker and baffle. I have my tweeters down on my kick panels near the speakers. Right now I have the tweets set to 0db via the crossover but at certain times they can be very harsh. I will be testing them at -3db to see if this helps with this. As far as the sound was concerned:

1) Bought these for SQ, hence the comp choice, and they do everything I want them to do. The highs are very clean and crisp. The highs play fairly flat so a higher EQ adjustment for the higher frequencies may be required.

2) The mid range was good (note this was before I got deadener, which I will discuss later on). It was very punchy and you can hear every bass hit as if you were right there next to it. Since I have a sub I keep the lower range EQ set near flat.

(Speakers in doors with deadener):

This past week my sub blew so I have been able to really hear what these speakers can do full range. Especially the mid to lower range:

1) With adding the deadener to the doors the mid range frequency response improved drastically. Everything with the mid range has gotten smoother.

2) Now since these are woofers not sub-woofers and the fact they are 6.5" the lower bass is good. With having heard the response of a sub-woofer it blows woofers out of the water. But I will have to say that these do handle the lower range well.

(Crossovers):

The crossovers are fairly small in size but do a great job supplying the correct frequency to the speakers. The covers are all plastic so these are very light. The only gripe I have with them is the clear covering. They are very easy to separate from the glue. But its a very simple fix.


(Overall):

4 out of 5

I am very pleased with this setup and will probably stay with this setup for the life of the vehicle. If your looking for a great comp set that plays full range. These are for you. They are somewhat pricey at $170 but you can't go wrong with these.

Even if you don't have a sub-woofer you won't be disappointed with the lower range capabilities of these speakers.
