Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Priced Per
Car Speakers are typically sold in pairs so you will receive 2 speakers for each speaker purchase on speakers marked "Priced Per Pair". If a speaker is marked "Priced Per Each" then the speaker is sold individually and each purchase you make will result in 1 speaker. High-powered tweeters, midrange and full-range pro audio for car speakers are typically sold per each speaker.
Speaker Size
Refers to the size of the speaker measured in inches. Every vehicle has standard application sizes. Please use our vehicle fitment guide for your vehicle's specific speaker sizes if you do not know them.
6-1/2"
Design
The number of individual drivers in a car speaker. Speakers with 2 drivers are known as a 2-way, and 3 drivers are known as a 3-way. Component systems are often referred to as "separates" because the tweeter is not attached to the midwoofer (main speaker driver) and mounts separately in a location such as a door post. Component systems typically come with an external crossover so you can easily adjust the high and low frequencies sent to both the midwoofer and the tweeter. Center channel speakers are great for those looking to have surround sound in their vehicle.
2-way Component System
Tweeter Design
Designs such as cone, dome, semi-dome, balanced dome, and whizzer are most popular. Cone tweeters are simple, efficient and typically are the most reasonably priced. Dome tweeters are used in most home speakers, and provide a smoother and more accurate sound. Semi-dome design is one with a dome placed inside a cone. A Balanced dome driver is a semi-dome with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the driver. A whizzer tweeter is a separate tweeter cone driven by the voice coil of the woofer.
Dome
Tweeter Size
Refers to the size of the tweeter. Typically, smaller tweeters produces less output with higher frequency response.
Tweeter Composition
Materials such as polypropylene, silk, cloth, and paper are the most common, where as many more recent tweeters are now manufactured with composites such as Aluminum, Titanium, Mylar, and other materials.

PEI is an acronym for "Polyetherimide" which is an amorphous, amber transparent, high-performance thermoplastic.

Aluminum
Woofer Composition
Lightweight woofer cone materials are essential for efficient operation. Poly cones produce exceptional sound and are sturdy against various changes in temperature. Paper cones are very efficient, and when treated for moisture resistance, will perform at a high level. Poly refers to polypropylene, which is thermoplastic or fibers that are polymers of propylene. IMPP refers to injection molded polypropylene, a commonly used process and material in speakers.
Glass Carbon Fiber
Woofer Surround
A speakers surround is part of the suspension system. The surround protects the cone and prevents it from being displaced as it flexes out from the basket. It is usually made of a durable material like treated foam or rubber in order to withstand the strenuous job of producing bass frequencies.
Rubber
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
300 watts
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
150 watts
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
90 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
40 - 22000 Hz
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
3 ohms
Shallow Mount Installation
This means that the subwoofer/speaker is designed to be installed in areas that do not have a lot of space. Shallow mount subwoofers are typically found under a seat or behind the seat in some trucks.

Shallow mount speakers will typically have a mounting depth of 2" or less, while shallow mount subwoofers will typically have a mounting depth of 3" or less.

Top-Mount Depth
The depth when installed on top of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the bottom of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
2-11/16"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches, required to contain the speaker.
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5" x 5" 
Speaker Grilles
A grating or screen of metal or plastic bars or wires, mounted in front of a speaker as protection. If yes, the speakers will include matching speaker grilles. If no, there are no grilles included.

Very clean sounding speaker

May 13, 2011

I've had these speakers for about 6 months now. I find them to be a very clean and precise speaker. If I were in the market again, I'd buy them again without hesitation. If you're looking for a clean and accurate speaker I don't think you would be disappointed with these. The crossovers are plenty flexible but are large so you probably will not fit them under the dash.

New to Boston but very impressed

March 17, 2011

Have never owned quality speakers like these in a car. In Australia these are quite expensive but through Sonic it made the purchase quite easy as the savings were massive. Bought these on the recommendation of some professional installers and I am not disappointed. The bass is very impressive to the point if you didn't want to put a sub in your install or were limited to being able to put a sub in, you would find that these speakers do quite a good job of belting out the bass on there own. I have them powered by a PDX F4 and I am running the speakers through an alpine PXA h700 which creates an incredible sound stage. If you're prepared to part with the money you won't be disappointed with the sound.

Geat Sound Quality

September 6, 2010

These speakers are great, I have them powered by an Alpine PDX-F6 giving them 180 rms according to the PDX birth sheet. Great Highs, not harsh at all after some tuning and the best part about this system is the mid bass. Sounds like a pair of high quality 8" sub woofers is in my car. Love the fact that the crossovers let you select an SQ setting which is great because on setting 1 the crossovers help the woofers sound their best in the stock door opening (make sure you use lots of sound dampening material) and on setting 2 they can be used in a very small space such as in kick panel (where its less than .25 cu ft). The crossovers are a bit large, literally the size of a brick, so make sure you have somewhere to put them. Despite their large size they do a great job distribution the frequencies to the appropriate speakers.

Long time fan of Boston Acoustics

August 24, 2010

These are excellent auto speakers. Not harsh or tiring tweets at all and excellent mids and mid-bass. Still benefit from a sub tho. Lots of room for volume on these with little break down in sound. Paired them with a BA amp in a 2.1 setup and really happy with the results.

Boston SPZ 60..............

July 27, 2010

These speakers are truly incredible. However, they cost twice as much as the Boston Pro's. The SPZs are noticeably better than the Pro's and I am happy to own the SPZ's, BUT I feel they are NOT twice as good as the Pro's. The Pro's are probably the best value; the biggest bang for the buck. If you have the cash to spare I say knock yourself out. Otherwise go with the Pro's and count yourself blessed.

Huge sound

January 17, 2010

These speakers hit, and hit hard. Whether it's in a bass line, drum kick or rap song, these deliver bass like some 10" subs I've heard before. These also though reproduce every word, whether it's the lead or backup singer, every guitar pluck and every other noise that's created, an produces it with detail. Very expensive!! But if you cherish music then these are as close to concert as you'll get.
