Speaker Specifications

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" (also mounts in 6-3/4" w/ included brackets)
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
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.

PEI (Polyetherimide)
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.
Cloth
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.
180 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.
30 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 - 30000 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.
4 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.

Yes
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.
1-11/16"
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.
Yes

Good speakers

July 19, 2011

I bought these almost 2 years ago and they're still playing really well. I have them as a cheap upgrade from the stock speakers. Clarity is much improved, especially with the mids and highs. They do lack ability on the lows however. This was not a problem for me though because that's what I have a sub for. I've turned my stereo all the way up (literally) and they still produce clear, undistorted sound, as long as you have turned the treble and bass down. For the average person or just someone starting to get into car audio (like me) these are fantastic speakers.

I bought these at a local store, paid $65 for them, for what I paid for them, they're alright, have had them for a year now, been through a lot, for how cheap pioneer is, they have durability and value down to a T...If you are looking for a nice factory upgrade but don't have a lot of cash...get these.

Nice upgrade from factory

February 9, 2010

Fits right in the holes of door speakers. Not like the old days. Only needed new ends for different terminals on speaker. Pleased with increased frequency response, hi and lo. Wish everything in life was this easy and quick (20 min/door). A great value.

Good speakers

January 15, 2010

I replaced my factory speakers with these. Pioneer makes good stuff, these speakers work great with lower wattage. I am using a Pioneer HU that feeds them 15watts RMS each. These speakers have good sensitivity, so they don't need alot of power to sound good. I like the shallow mounting depth, you don't have to worry about the window hitting them when you mount them in a door. Hi's are clean, and mid's are strong. Great sounding speakers for a cheap price. Some people complain about the lack of bass, but these speakers are not designed for bass. These speakers are for hi's and mid's only. I use the high-pass filter in my HU to keep lower freq's off these speakers. If you want bass, get a subwoofer/amp setup. These speakers do what they are designed to do.

I bought this product to replace my speakers in my truck. This is a good buy if you' re just looking to get rid of your old busted speakers. The only thing I had a complaint about is that this speaker doesn' t put out bass as I expected but good buy for the cost.

They are good for the price but lack a little on the bass end of things so if your looking for good bass you'll want to spend a little more than these to get that. They have great mid and upper ranges though.

Excellent stock replacements

September 2, 2008

These speakers make great replacements for stock speakers. They work just fine on stock radio power, and offer slightly improved midrange and treble thanks to the tweeter. If you were satisfied with how your stock speakers sounded and just need them to be replaced, then these would be a great choice for you.
