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.
3-1/2"
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
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.

Polymide
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.
Butyl 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.
70 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.
35 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.
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.
1-3/8"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches, required to contain the speaker.
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.
No

Decent Speakers

September 2, 2009

I bought these to replace the speakers in my 93 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera S. My previous speakers were the stock speakers so its safe to say this was a vast improvement. They sound good for the price point and so far they have held pretty well. While they can't be blasted, they can be turned up to a reasonably high volume without having to worry about causing any damage to the speakers so you'll get a pretty rich sound without any buzzing or popping due to bass. It was a solid buy on my part and I'd buy them again if I was on a budget.

Best Little speakesr for your buck!!!

October 10, 2012

I was very skeptical about these lil speakers at first, but wow the blew my mind not only is the tweeter loud and crisp, but these lil speakers have some bass to have such a small cone. There is no reason to buy higher priced speakers when these provide the same output for a very low price.

Big Let down

October 9, 2012

I bought these speakers expecting good quaility, but after blowing not only 1 set, i installed another set, and they blew, and then finally a 3rd set when I finally spoke to a installer and he stated after making sure they were grounded and mounted correctly. He said they were cheap speakers. At this time I will not by these again!!!

not for me

June 14, 2012

I bought these for a portable radio that I just wanted to upgrade the speakers in. After about a month, one speaker stopped working and the other one had a bad scratching sound like the voice coil was rubbing. I would just waste more money than they're worth to send them back, so I would recommend spending a bit more to get something better.

Put In My Miata Headrests

January 17, 2010

As Miata owners know, the Miata has headrest speakers that suck bad. I just purchased a used 1992 & wanted to fill more sound, & these were just the ticket. Made my own brackets for the headrest & install was a snap. Also added install bay bass blockers just so the highs & mids would be present behind my head... Overall, for 13 bucks, you can't beat it...

This was a good buy, the quality is great with these and if you have a good Head Unit to dial them in, you are set for some great sound. But I strongly recommend these to anyone and everyone. I just fell in love with Bose.

SO worth the money

March 16, 2009

I wasn't too sure what to expect when I ordered these speakers. They were priced so cheap I actually checked to make sure I was getting a pair. I am very pleased with the performance. They handle all the power I can throw at them and the highs are very clear and crisp. Only complaint I would find worth mentioning is that the speakers do not have much range at lower frequencies (aka, no bass,) but that's understandable due to the small cone surface area. All in all a very nice speaker that is well worth the money.

BOSS SE 322

March 13, 2009

The car: 2004 Toyota Camry The set-up 1 pair BOSS AUDIO SE 322 3.5 inch speakers 2 pair BOSS AUDIO SE 693 6x9 inch speakers 1 BOSS AUDIO 735UA head unit 1 SOUNDSTORM F4.400 4 channel 400 watt amp Do not laugh, for what I spent for a system in my wife's car, this needs to be heard to be appreciated! These little gems out-perform many 'high-end' expensive 3.5 inches. Keep in mind these are designed for mids and highs, so wiring a bass stopper will further improve their sonic field. Do not dismiss BOSS AUDIO as an inferior company. I am running a 6.5 inch BOSS AUDIO component set with a 12 inch sub in my 2003 Chevy S10 with a 1000 watt amp and they ROCK! Give them a try, you will be surprised.
