I ordered the REF-9632ix and REF-6532ix to replace the stock speakers in my 97 VR4. Unfortunately, the stock speakers have become so old that the paper baffles seem the be separating. Others on here have said how good the reference speakers sound with the stock amp and head unit, but I am confused why. I listen to "rock" music mostly and the mid-range is almost absent. The bass on these speakers seems better than stock, but I am not out to thump thump around the neighborhood. : ) Does anyone else have experience with these speakers? On paper it seems like the stock system should drive them perfectly fine and they should sound good. Did I get a defective set?
