As a die hard sound stream tarantula fan... I have to say these are very comparable.
I wasn't able to find a 6x8 sound stream tarantula speaker, so I opted for a skar. There are 0 regrets doing this.
I did a bunch of sound dampening in my 2002 ford focus zx3. I've only replaced the door speakers so far. Leaps and bounds Betty than OEM. I can feel the air move from the front of the speaker while in the door.
The bass is incredible for a full range speaker and the 1 inch silk tweeter (the main selling point to me) sound amazing.
I can't wait to get these amped and see what they can really do.
By far the best single upgrade to a focus of this era.
Still using the stock radio.
I put 4 in my 2002 ford ranger XLT. It sounded way cleaner with my original head unit. Today I put in a touchscreen kenwood double-din and it sounds hella better. Sorry I got no pics and The pic of the skar 12 inch sub is in my other vehicle
