Any one got or listened to JBL GTO speakers. I have been looking at Jaycar 6.5" two way kevlar coax for the rear but thought about fitting the JBLs and spend more on the front splits and amp.

Hey mate had both and would recommend the jaycar speakers... Not as flashy but they give such a crisp sound. Quality is well above their price range...

Though at the end of the day it'll be your ears that decide, just don't let the strathfield guys talk you in to anything you're not sure of.

true most of those blokes have no idea anyway. Keep in mind that the rear is only a "fill" speaker so it doesn't have to be all that flash the fronts and amp is where you want the real decent money to go and the deck of course

Thanks guys, If I go with the Jaycar (CS-2337) 6" kevlar splits up front and Jaycar (CS-2374) 6.5" kevlar two way coax in the tail gate I'll be up for $480, with JBL (GTO-607C) 6" splits and JBL (GTO-637) 3 way coax $361. For the sake of $120 I think I will save up for a little longer and get the Jaycar speakers, they will probably respond a bit better to a 4x50 watt amp.
