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.
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
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.
130 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.
60 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".
89 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).
63 - 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.
2.95"

Great factory replacement Nissan Titan

Wanted something that needed low watts and was a 2-way. Glad I made the choice to purchase these. Replaced my front door factory Titan speakers. Good improvement.

great speaker

November 5, 2011

I put these in the back deck of an accord, because of the price i was not sure what i was gonna get. I have been very impressed with these speakers. Very good at playing all types of music loud and clear. They are running off a jvc deck. I am not sure about the bass of these speakers because i have it turned down, but the output is very nice and they will get quite loud. If you are look for a good 6x9 to get started, buy these.

well worth the price

September 27, 2011

Playing off of 15 watts rms with a sony head unit. these speakers are loud in my girlfriends elantra. We have boss 6.5 4-ways in the front doors and we had to fade the music to the front because the Orions were so much louder. They hit very hard.

great product for the low price

May 22, 2011

these 6x9's are pretty good quality for the price. the highs are clear, and they have decent bass and a good frequency response range. cosmetically they are very good and sleek looking, not all flashy like other products in a similar price range. on another note, the hardware/speaker wire that comes with these is very cheap. i would suggest using some higher quality wire and terminals instead of what comes in the box. all said i would suggest these to others

These speakers are very nice for the money. Easy to install, and they sound pretty good. They can go pretty loud without distortion, and the mids and highs are really clear. Bass is really nice, it just can't go that low. Not really a con because not many 6x9's can reproduce the really low frequencies like a sub. Overall a great deal!
