Small yet powerful 45 Watts RMS. Excellent sounding full range speakers.
Always looking for more bass but these deliver very well for their size.
I also purchased these speakers for my 2002 Honda Goldwing. I read previous reviewers post and it is not completely correct (at least for my Goldwing). I had to slot out the corners and use flat washers on all 4 corners. Other than that, they dropped right in. Also, the stock Honda head unit does not supply nearly enough power to drive these speakers. I dropped a Sony Xplod XM-4S in the trunk compartment made for the 6 CD Changer (with no modification) and WOW what a difference! Previous reviewer is missing out. The extra power drives these speakers to their full potential delivering the Bass, Mid, and Hi as they were designed. Even at lower listening level, these speakers sound full and crisp. Highly recommend for those that have space restriction.

very clean defined sound- piano is phenomenal
I got 2 pairs of these to put in my 02 Goldwing- Sizing ois a problem. These 501's fit with no modifications. The sound detail is fantastic. Everything sounds so clear and precise. GHow honda sells there oem for the same kind of money without anywhere near the same definition is beyond me
