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" 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.
5-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.

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.
Mica Injected Polypropylene (MIPP)
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.
Urethane 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.
500 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.
90 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".
93 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).
28 - 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.

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.
3-1/16"
Bottom-Mount Depth
The depth when installed from the bottom of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the top of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
3-9/16"
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.

still in the box

April 26, 2011

I bought for my Ford F250 and guess what they didn't fit but maybe i will install them in a box and wedge them in somewhere. Creativity is a must in sound systems. I wish Mr.Spock was an installer.

The radio is great when it comes to looks, value, durability and features. The only thing I dislike about it is that its not easy to use, the guide doesn't explain things well and you have to play with it to figure it out.

Great SQ!

February 10, 2010

I owned an older model of these, sounded amazing, if these are anything like my old models, than they're definitely worth the buy. As for me I just replaced the older models with Kicker KS690s, but this is due to the fact that Kicker has a perfect balance of SQ and Bass. These are better if you are looking for pure sound quality though. Definitely competition-grade in my opinion; although, the price-tag isn't very appealing...lol.

These speakers are fantastic, and what makes them better is the price. The mids and highs will pretty much scream at you, and i can hear notes in some songs i never even knew were there. unfortunately they did not fit in my xterra cause the depth was too deep by maybe 3/16 of an inch, so i bought a pair of enclosures for them and probably did myself a favor cause the lows are hitting harder than they would be sitting in the panels. Anyways, if you want bang for your buck, grab a pair!

January 27, 2010

For the price, these 6x9s cannot be beat. When powered by by a car's stock amplifier or a headunit, they sound pretty good. High efficiency rating ensures that. Once they are hooked up to to a multi channel amplifer, they sound excellent, and better than anything you will find for the price. Every sound frequency except the very lows sound great. Like I said, I'm sure there are better sounding speakers, but only if you spend twice as much. You wont regret buying these.

I installed these speakers about 6 months ago and have not been disappointed. The sound quality is great, especially for the price. The speakers themselves are hefty to say the least, and do a great job of filling my Galant from the rear. The bass is decent, but they do not replace a sub

I bought 2 sets of these speakers for my 2004 Chrysler Sebring. I was able to listen to these at a local retailer. The speakers are Outstanding for 6x9's Base is incredible and the mid and lows are just as good. I do not have an amp on these. I did have to make my own modification to the front doors of my car but very well worth it. Excellent Product and Price Thanks Sonic would definitely order from again.

I would recommend these any day! I have had them just about two years and they are amazing!! I did end up blowing them with my amp and aftermarket deck but that's because I overloaded them on purpose with my subs. Most people seem to be writing that they don't provide low basses but that is wrong. They provide bass of all pitches but if you want to hold a bass pitch then you need a sub not 6x9s.

Now there hooked to the Amp and WHOA!!!

October 31, 2009

Wow... now that these are hooked up to (the Channel 1/2 of) the amp (SSL F4.1200) these things are A-MAZ-ING!!! These things seriously go almost as low as the subwoofer! Un-freakin-believable!!! Now that they are being amp'd... they make my wife's side-mirrors "flap their wings" in a serious way!!! (YES!!!) If you had a small car like, let's say, a Honda Civic... and you had these amp'd and in the Rear Deck.... you really wouldn't need to have a subwoofer. In all seriousness... I wish I could somehow fit these 6 x 9's into the doors of my Ford SportTrac... but unfortunately Ford's are 6 x 8's :*(
