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" x 9"
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.

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.
200 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.
100 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".
92 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).
50 - 20000 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
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.
3-3/16"

not very happy

February 7, 2013

I was less than pleased to find my 2nd pair of speakers fail in less than 30 minutes of playing at 40% volume with a small amp. I know what some are thinking, but no I am not new to car audio. Lesson learned. What I spent could have easily bought me better speakers. I plan to buy a better set soon. The reason I went with a cheaper speaker is so people wouldn't be so quick to steal them in my Jeep Wrangler when i have the top off.

Good Value

October 5, 2011

These are a direct fit into the mounting brackets for a 2001 Grand Am. The sound is much cleaner than the stock Monsoon system, with smoother highs and good bass, midrange is ok, still better than stock.

Excelent Value Choice

September 24, 2010

I was looking for a set of inexpensive speakers for a truck I recently bought. I knew I wanted 6x9 with at least 20 oz magnets. I found the boss SE693 on Sonic Electronix web page and ordered them. They arrived in no time at all and very well packaged. I am very satisfied with their performance and would recommend them to anyone who wants an excellent product for a fair price.

BOSS AUDIO SE 693 6x9 speakers

March 13, 2009

The car: 2004 Toyota Camry The set-up: 1 pair BOSS AUDIO SE 322 3.5 inch speakers (see review) 2 pair BOSS AUDIO SE 693 6x9 inch speakers 1 BOSS AUDIO 735UA head unit 1 SOUNDSTORM F4.400 400 watt, 4 channel amplifier I recently installed this set-up in my wife's car. For the money I spent on this entire system, I am quite suprised with the sound. Don't laugh, this needs to be heard to be appreciated! With 2 pairs of these 6x9s, I found no need for a subwoofer, as my wife enjoyes easy-listening music. Having 2 pairs of these do produce enough low end bass, espicially with a little volume. These will keep up with many more expensive 'hign-end' speakers. They reproduce music quite accurately and follow the listed specs. I am impressed with how they sound with a 400 watt amp. They do not need a larger amp but would certainly handle more power. I chose BOSS AUDIO because I am running a BOSS AUDIO 6.5 inch component set with a 12 inch sub and a 1000 watt amp in my 2003 Chevy S10 and they ROCK. Do not write off this brand, they wiil compete with most others!

Boss Speakers (Ok?)

December 22, 2008

They are ok for someone wanting to get out of cheap stocks. But if looking for an enjoyable listening experience I would recommend spending the money something worth it.
