Unbelievable to be so loud and so crisp. Only had our system installed for 24 hours and we are in love with it. DS18 knocks it out of the park highly recommend
So after having this speaker bar for over a year I discovered some issues that their customer service wouldn't help correct. First off is I ordered from one of their dealers in my state. Big mistake because DS18 doesn't warranty when you buy through one of their dealers. Second the sound bar I got had what I presume is an older tweeter speaker model. The plastic bullet cone was square and not round as advertised on their website. After near a year the speaker cone started cracking and the speaker rattled. Note the cone plastic is really thin where the screws hold it to the speaker bar. I contacted DS18 for support and sent pics and they said it was from overtightening the screws. Note the screw holes never cracked at the screw site but from down in the cone area out to the edge. It wasn't from overtightening any screws. I've worked electronics for over 30 years and I know tightening screws too much will crack plastic. They wouldn't uphold the warranty on the tweeters even after lengthy emails and phone conversations. I was hoping they would at least meet me in the middle and replace 2 if I bought two new ones. Well that didn't happen either. So I paid out the money and am replacing the 4 tweeters tomorrow with the 4 round ones the package was advertised with. Hopefully this will correct the problem and I won't see cracking anymore or rattling speaker sounds either. Now on to a positive note!!! I love the soundbar and I think they do make quality products. I would recomend them to any jeep owner with audio system upgrade needs. I will purchase from them again!!! But I am a little put out by their customer service!!!
And buy direct from them online and not a local distributor so if you have a warranty issue it may make things more simple to get things corrected
this soundbar is crazy loud and clear! This makes my jeep sound so much better! When i’m cruising with my top and doors off, i don’t hear the wind anymore, i hear my music! I love this soundbar and was kinda bummed i waited so long to make this purchase!
Well during Jeep Beach could not pass up the deal for two of these with the wiring harness’s and upgraded amps. Makes a world of difference, it’s funny at night people look at the Jeep’s and are like what’s going on in there with all the LED action going on. I will say once you get this for your Jeep you are going to want more. Like replacing the 4 speakers in your dash and the desire for a subwoofer or two. Install was easy I will say if you do it alone use ratchet straps to hold up the sound bar or you will be on your back using both feet and a hand to home it up while your free hand puts in the bolts. The color code for the wiring harness instructions are dated look at the end of the harness on the tiny silver lettering. Be sure you have enough wire not included for the keyed accessory wire on the RGB control module to run to the front lighter. It’s the pink wire going into the 12v keyed power port/lighter in the dash. I would also suggest a lot of the red marine heatshrink soldering connectors, a wire stripper, and some other tools for your install.
Awesome unit though, thank you guys.
I’m in love with these tweeters. They are great, loud, and so clear. I’m happy with my purchase and I will buy from DS18 again

These DS-18 tweeters deliver a vast improvement in overall sound quality over the factory tweeters, even when used with the factory front 6x9’s and rear 6.5” speakers in my ‘06 Toyota Tacoma (non JBL). They open up the top end so much that equalizer can dial in much more treble/high end. The resulting vocals and hi-end are much cleaner than the stock tweeters, which allows stronger more treble to be dialed in. This also can be balanced with slightly more mid-range and bass. The overall sound is much better. I plan to replace those remaining stock speakers but am very very pleased with the performance of just these DS-18 tweeters.

DS18 RE-16GA-500 16-GA Ultra Flex Primary Remote Wire 500 Feet
These are precisely what I was looking for to mount a set of DS18 6.5 speakers to the side panels.
Really woke my system up and took some stress off my worrying about ruining my other amp
LOVE THE SPEAKER & ITS REALLY LOUD. THE PROBLEM I HAVE IS THAT THE AMP ON BACK OF SPEAKER BOX GETS SO HOT U CAN LAY IT FLAT ON GROUND H ACTUALLY USE IT AS AN INDUCTION COOKING STOVE. IM BEING SO SERIOUS. PLEZ WATCH KIDS AROUND THIS UNIT IF U PURCHASE 1. IT WILL CAUSE SERIOUS BURNS & AN EMERGENCY ROOM TRIP & A BILL MUCH HIGHER THAN U PAY FOR THIS SPEAKER.
If you are looking for a machine to drive them competition subs? Start here first! Don't put these on Radio Shack speakers
Overall the speakers are over what was expecting sounds very loud keep in mind I used an external amp probably the only complain is a little the quality of the sound but those speakers are much more expensive
Bought 4 of the pro bullet loud speakers to upgrade the factory speakers in my 02 Audi a4 revived the speakers within a week even with a holiday weekend in between. Install was easy with a little modification of the old speaker housing it fit perfect. Also was able to pull the casing off of the 2in pei dome tweeter and slide it right where the factory tweeter went with no modifications and it stays perfect for a clean factory look all around. The sq is very impressive and almost twice as loud as my factory system. Note all of these speakers are just run off the head unit no amp yet and they are still amazing, looking at getting the 300w 4 channel amp sold by ds18 to finish it off
I’ll have to say, either your video doesn’t do it justice or they just sound horrible.
