Priced Per Pair

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.
6-1/2"
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.
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 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.

Piezo
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.
220 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.
110 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".
91 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).
60 - 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
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.

No
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.
2-1/4"
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.
Yes

Awesome door speakers at a great price!

April 18, 2010

I got these for my Honda Civic EX. They are just as advertised. The flea market wanted to charge me about 3 times as much for these speakers. They do exactly what I wanted, and the low price certainly did not hurt. I would definitely recommend!

I bought these speakers to replace the OEM speakers on my 03 dodge Dakota. The sound quality is a whole lot better. Just don't expect a lot of low bass from them. Other that great speaker for the price. Shipping was fast. I'm satisfied with my purchase.

Great Value and Great Sound - (need to carefully order your exact size)

September 30, 2011

I was looking for a replacement for my blown speaker set in my Chrylser 300M and these fit the specifications. Once installed the speakers performed beautifully and really sound great. I made a mistake when ordering so the speakers I purchased did not line up properly and I had to drill holes to fit as well as needing to eliminate the dome covers since that made it stick out too far and not fit when trying to add the cover back to the car speaker area. Again that is simply a matter of me not understanding this portion of ordering replacements so I cannot attribute that to this product whatsoever. Overall I have had a really nice experience with the balance in purchase price and realized benefit. Great Value and really great sound!!!

DOESNT TAKE RATED RMS POWER!!!!

May 22, 2011

I bought 4 of these and fed them 100 rms per channel and turned the gains and boosts off. I didn't even crank it and I smell the coils burning. I guess im going to get some polk mobile monitors. Waste of money unless you use a weak amp

great mid and high range!

April 23, 2011

I put 4 of these in my Mazda MX-3. It is a very small car and these fill it with good crisp sound very easily. My head unit sends 18 watts RMS to each and it is just about perfect, no distortion except during very heavy bass at high volume. Adding a small sub and dialing back the bass to these speakers will allow the great mid and high range from these to really shine. Be careful attaching the speaker lines, I broke one of the tabs while trying to push on the lead wire and had to repair it.

pretty good for the price

March 4, 2011

For the price I wasn't expecting a whole lot from these speakers but they are in fact pretty good. These speakers play a good range of mids and highs and can play loud with clarity. Depending on you're deck or music player you can tweak the sound with ease. I have 2 Rockford subs and the music played well over the bass with little distortion. However if you try to use any bass while trying to get clear, loud music the sound will distort =( Wish these speakers had more bass to them, but with a system installed you want the mids and highs to play through and with built in tweeters every ting, and high note played nicely. Even after owning these speakers for several months playing loud music, they are still intact and sound good. I definitely recommend this to anyone who needs an upgrade.

Ive had these speakers in my car now for 6 months and they sound great. They are able to keep up with the rest of the sound system and offer a very clear sound. They are powered by a Rockford Fosgate 400 watt amp.

Good Speaker for the Price

August 23, 2010

If you are just looking for a replacement speaker for the stock speakers in your car, these are a good choice. I bought a used car and was using it for a few years with blown out stock speakers that clicked and rattled if there was any bass at all. I got so fed up, I finally searched online for a cheap replacement and found these. They are not the best speakers in the world, that's why they only cost me $25 a pair. If you are looking for an upgrade to your stock speakers keep looking. But, if you need to replace old ones these are a good choice.

Skip it for something else with better clarity.

September 21, 2009

First off... when I opened the package, on the magnet of the speaker itself it states 3 Ohm. On the website it states 4 Ohm. 'Sup with that? Then after I installed them I was kinda let down by the clarity. I'm only powering them from stock headunit in an '07 Nissan Xterra. This same headunit sounds great powering the Kenwood 6 x 9's I also purchased here from sonic. I opted to by these cheaper speakers only because I was putting them in the rear doors of the vehicle. I WOULD NOT mount these in the front of any vehicle due to lower grade sound quality. They are a bit better than stockers as far as high are concerned... but interestingly enough the stockers produced smoother deeper lows, but those stockers couldn't handle higher volume like these can.
