Need to change the Bose dash speakers to something actually decent so I need something efficient and decent sounding. Anyone heard either of these companies 3.5's?

gto 327 is alright, a tad too edgy for my taste..I like bright, but crystal clear and very refined. I haven't heard the new kappa 32.9 Infinity's yet, but the MMD tweeter is good...so I expect it will be better than the JBL offering. The ref series Infinity's are similar to the JBL gto. Again depends on your budget, and what you want to do. They still sound hella better than most stock 3.5's.

Some JBL equipment is very good... just because it isn't spl worthy doesn't mean it sucks

JBL is at Best Buy, not FS

FS sells Infinity

JBL and Infinity are the same build house

If you go to a Movie Theatre, you are listening to JBL

JBL offers GTO, POWER and GTI giving different levels of interest.
