Proposition 65 is a California law that applies to companies selling products in California. Proposition 65 requires warnings if a product contains any listed chemical present above very low levels. Proposition 65’s warning standards are among the most stringent in the world. Proposition 65 is not a product safety law, but rather a "right-to-know" law. Businesses are required to provide warnings to comply with Proposition 65.
There are over 800 chemicals on the Proposition 65 list, which is administered by California's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA), a part of the California Environmental Protection Agency. The list includes naturally occurring and man-made chemicals. Proposition 65 warnings can be seen for a wide variety of everyday consumer products, including electronic equipment, and warnings can be seen posted throughout California in a variety of establishments such as buildings, hotels, restaurants, coffee shops, and stores.
Why do you see the warning on our packaging and website?
The warning is part of our ongoing effort to comply with the California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (known as "Proposition 65").
Worth it. I grabbed these for my 1990 XJ Cherokee to replace the blown factory speakers. I already had an aftermarket head unit in the truck when I bought it, but somebody hacked the wiring all to hell. Fixed that up and found the speakers were too far gone to even be bearable. Searched here for 5-1/4" speakers and these came up as the cheapest, $18 or so a pair. The included wiring is something like 20 awg, but you really only need like 4" of it to splice into your factory wiring, so increased resistance by small wire gauge isn't any real concern. They fit in the factory locations with no modification whatsoever, they even fit behind the factory grilles as to remain inconspicuous. Result? They sound amazing for what they are. With a cheap aftermarket head unit, like my Pioneer, it sounds many times better than many 90's era factory stereo systems. They don't distort until you really push the limits. A great purchase all around. I would buy these again, even if the...

Pretty good for stock replacements
I picked these up to replace some blown out rear door speakers in my 2000 Ram 1500. I didn't want to spend much given that the truck is rough around the edges, and honestly wasn't expecting a whole lot from sub-$20 speakers. Well, I was pleasantly surprised once they were installed. I'm currently running them off just the power of my Pioneer deck, and they sound great, and have no noticeable distortion even at higher volumes. I'm sure they'd sound better with a small amp, but I'm not gonna try and fool anyone by saying they'd handle crazy wattage without blowing up. If you're looking for cheap stock replacement speakers, I'd say give them a shot. The only negative I found was that the included wires are very thin, but they were manageable.
