Fountek FR88EX Fullrange review.

Cliff's notes: Low sensitivity. Ok midrange. Bad outside of this. Some pretty wild FR for a "fullrange" above beaming. High HD below 300hz; use a crossover for sure no lower than this. And HD around the breakup regions. All these comments are pretty typical of most fullrange drivers and why I don't use them myself unless there's a real need. YMMV.

I had the FR88ex in the dash of my 2008 Altima for about 8 years. About 2 weeks ago I installed some Hybrid Audio U3's and it was a night and day difference. The U3's are more detailed, realistic, better soundstage and play lower than the fountek. The price difference was worth it.
