Clear, defined, musical midrange and highs. Moveable tweeter great idea for location. Bass end rich but seems to looovvvee power (then again, don't we all, really?).
Rather inefficient, in my experience: Install em with 16-gauge zipcord at the least, and preferably run them off their own stereo amplifier.
Hallelujah! The Speaker Gods have finally the fervent prayers of we devoted owners of Ford-family cars and trucks and delivered unto us a musical, reasonably-priced speaker that fits in that DAMNABLY hard-to-fit front door speaker location. As was the case with your humble scribe, the EX-368s exist because you simply CANNOT shoehorn a 6x9" speaker into the abovementioned slot, not even with a little divine intervention. And there are enough Ford (and Mazda, which I am proud to own, and Jaguar, etc. etc.) owners out there to make a 6x8" speaker economically viable for enterprising folks like, well, Polk Audio. Viable, yes...but musical? A different kettle o' fish entire. In my case, the Polks replaced a set of Pioneer 6x8s which had, in turn, replaced the OEM fiber flapjacks that came with the car. The Pioneers were...mediocre at best. While certainly efficient (they ran off of my 19W RMS x 4 channels head unit with no sweat) and kinda cool looking, they were muddy, bass-heavy and altogether lacking in any sense of imaging or soundstage. (I know, I know, music at your kneecaps is not exactly where you want it, but go talk to Edsel Ford III about that.) A local electronics superstore chanced to offer a set of the EX-368s for a very attractive price, so (once again silently invoking The Speaker Gods for a miracle) I plunked down my shekels and slapped the Polks into the doors (in, I kid thee not, 25 minutes' worth of work). Ambrosia! Well, almost: Here was stereo imaging, rich midrange and responsible, shimmery high end (which, thanks to the ex-368s' swivellable tweeter, DOESN'T have to be shot into your pantlegs). The bass, while certainly more reticent than the Pioneers, was apparent and plummy. My only significant caveat was that, with factory wiring and my head unit, my new showcase front speakers were getting overwhelmed by those in the rear doors (MB Quart 5 1/4"s) and rear deck (Bazooka EL-690 6x9"s). This dawg clearly would not hunt, so, after determining that, for me at least, the efficiency of the ex-386s was somewhat suspect, I repaired to E-Bay, whence I secured a tasty little 60W/channel stereo amp from US Acoustics and ran the Polks offa those. Revelation!! The bass end lit up like Bill Clinton at an inauguration party, and if anything the projection of mids and highs was more definite and etched than before. Therefore, brothers and sisters, I say unto thee: Go thou forth and snap up a brace of Polk's fine EX-368s, and suffer no more the Mark of Edsel upon thy mobile audio enjoyment.

The REL aimable tweeter does help imaging of the high's. The speaker does run well with low (stock) wattage head units, and they are great direct fit replacements for Ford and Mazda's 6"x8" speakers.
Fairly deep speakers (2 7/16th Inches deep) so watch out for clearance issues. Bass is quite good. I would have prefered 2 tweeters as seen in the Polk 6x9" model.
I purchases 2 pairs of Polk Audio's EX368's as replacement speakers on my 2003 Ford Ranger Edge. They definitely outdo the stock speakers, and have proven themselves worthy as my first upgrade. I haven't gone full volume yet, but they do great with my Ford 6 disc CD-changer (about 12-13W I hear). I can't wait until I get an amplifier to really set these speakers off. I also have a 5-6 year old 10" subwoofer and matching 200 W amp, and they do overlap in the lower frequencies. That means my low end bass (around 150-200hz) is a little overwhelming to the rest of the spectrum. That's good for the speakers, not for my system! These 6x8's have plenty of surface area so they do produce adequate bass. I just need some bass blockers (passive crossovers) to allow my subwoofer the low frequency priviledges.
