Yup. Second, no third, after market HU. Might work on a fourth. Put the one I got in The Missus'* van and get myself the same one I had.

You got the Lightning Audio'* from the sound of it...they are the only ones I know of that are yellow. I am not too sure about the full-range speakers, but I did get a pair of tweeters made by the same company and they sound pretty good...those *were* taking the place of the factory rear tweets in the sse rear deck covers.

Yeah, they are Lightning Audio, but they don't make 'em yellow no more. Kind of an almost silver gray now.

The only bad part I've found so far is that they seriously overpower the front speakers. Guess I'm gonna have to rip into the door panels soon....

Bought those same speakers 3 weeks ago. Your right, they sound good on the factory deck, and really overpower the front speakers. Had a hell of a time getting them to fit on the rear decks. Had to modify the factory mounts to accept these new ones. Came out pretty damn nice though.

I didn't have any mod tools available when I mounted mine (here in the parking lot at work). I managed to manhandle them in pretty well. But, they are just a fraction larger than the originals. I think the biggest issue I had were the larger magnets wanting to yank them to one side or the other. And getting those "LEGO" clips to grab the mounts when I put them back. I love the fact that it'* so easy to pop the speakers out, but there ain't enough room to get good leverage to pop 'em back in....

But, for forty bucks, who'* complaining, right?

My older brother used to have lightning audios in his old Sentra, and I always thought they sounded pretty kick *** for the price.

Just remember, they are still budget speakers. They do sound great, and I still recommend them, but if you're trying to put on a rolling concert (like that moron down the street ) you may be slightly underwhelmed.
