Non-Bose OEM speakers better than Hertz?!

I read a few times about people using Hertz, so I bought a set for my sedan. Installed the driver side to compare to stock and it sounded horrible. Are Hertz overrated or are the stock speakers pretty decent for being stock? When I removed the OEM, it weighted nothing and looked like it was built with construction paper.

I don't have the models offhand, but they're the basic sets, sub $200.

Anyone else have experience with upgraded their Non-Bose speakers?

Bose drivers are designed/spec'd to work with Bose amplifiers and equalizers. If you split the pair and use one without the other, you will get poor results.

Depends on what "sounds horrible" means.

Stock speakers are likely more efficient so would play louder than aftermarket and while Bose are 4 ohm if non-Bose are 2 ohm there would be more of a difference. If the Hertz weren't properly sealed to the door low end and mids would suffer. Phasing wouldn't make a significant difference if only listening to driver or passenger sides independently but would if listening together and Hertz are out of phase.
