Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Chaos (Boss)
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.
Pair
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.
5-1/4"
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.
3-way
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 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.

Piezo
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.
Injection Molded Polypropylene (IMPP)
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.
225 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.
115 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).
100 - 18000 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.

March 21, 2013

I got these as an inexpensive stock speaker replacement in my 01Jeep Cherokee. I am powering them with a JVC head unit, so not much power. The speakers sound fine, nothing fantastic nor horrible. The sound is improved from the old stockers. I have not had any issues with them over the 6 months I have owned them. They are meeting my basic need.

I used these to replace front door speakers in my wife's station wagon. They are very clear and bright, cover a surprising range down into the mid's, and I can push them as hard as the head unit will push with no distortion whatever. Unbeatable value, I'd buy them again in a second.

Not bad for the $

December 24, 2010

I bought these to replace the stock blown speakers in my van. I am running them off a JVC KD-R200 deck, and they sound good. I know this size speaker is not for bass, but having the bass gain on my deck at 3 (out of 6) they distort. Turning down to 1-2 seems good until I turn the volume to high (40+ on the dial). More power would help (deck pushing 20 rms/50 peak per channel and I seriously doubt they will handle 230 rms & 450 peak per pair). The highs and mids are quite good as well, and actually over run the factory 6 x9's in the rear. Overall, for a low dollar replacement, they are good speakers. I will eventually upgrade them as funds increase, but I am happy for the time being. If you are looking for something to replace blown factory speakers, this is a good choice for the money.

Product is a great value and is very easy to install! Replaced my original speakers! The speaker seem to have less low range than prior but I do not have a high power radio to push them like they can. I have the original factory radio.

I Have these Speakers power up by Pioneer GM-D8604 and its in a Scion XB. They Work fine and all but I'm looking for something thats loud enough for a system I have, They can handle the watts but its Not loud enough. If You want some speakers that loud, dont go with these but if u just want something just to replace then these are fine.
