Model Reviewed: 236is

Strength:

Rubber surrounds, ant resonant basket, aluminium cone, decent crossover, great sound from tweeter / woofer combination.

Weakness:

The depth of the speaker could be a restriction to some vehicles so note this.

I purchased my first set of ADS speakers from a friend. I had mine running of an old school Rockford Fosgate Punch 200ix. My Pioneer DEH-9650MP set at 80hz high pass setting, and my bass was provided by dual Kicker Comp VR 12's in a 5cu ft ported box. The speakers blended in well with the bass and I loved the silk dome tweeters sound as it was not harsh at high volumes compared to metal tweeters. The crossover does give you options to attenuate the tweeter volume to 0/-3db during installation. I found the midwoofer to be of 6 inch size and not 6.5 so check your vehicles stock speaker size. The mid bass provides adequate kick up front and better if your front doors are sound deadened. The vocals are pleasant is listen with no nasal or honking frequencies that make the speakers sound bad. The woofers can handle lots of power as well, as I ran the Rockford Fosgate amp with them. These are highly sought speakers unfortunately have gone out of business and there were few copies on the market.

Model Reviewed: 6.5 inch component

Strength:

Sound clarity, well built, nice crossover

Weakness:

expensive at the time, much more affordable now

The A/D/S 236is component speakers are fantastic. I searched around for a while, listening to many different brands before I auditioned the A/D/S brand. The sound from these speakers is very natural and clear, without the tinny or hollow sound that I heard from other brands. The bass is pretty strong from these, although I have a JL Audio 10" sub backing them up and the tweeters are amazing. I will certainly buy another set of A/D/S speakers for the next car I buy.
