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.
5-1/4"
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 Component System
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.
Cone
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.

Titanium
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.
Polypropylene
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.
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.
90 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".
85 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).
55 - 32000 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.
2-3/4"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches, required to contain the speaker.
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5-1/8" x 5-1/8" 
Hi-Res Audio Compatible
This feature refers to if the product is capable of Hi-Res Audio (HRA) playback.
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
Number of Speakers
This is the number of speaker that is included in the package. Each purchase will result in receiving the number of speakers indicated here. Please note that some items will have multiple woofers in the same enclosure. For sets of component speakers, this number will refer to the number of sets of speakers (For example, 2 would indicate the purchase includes 2 woofers and 2 tweeters).

Please refer to the product image and description for further details about the speaker.

amazing sound in small package

January 1, 2011

WOW! i was skeptical about the size of the lil woofer but w-o-w. i made sum test enclosures, well damped with speaker carpeting on inside walls & polyester fiber fill. i originally got these mb quarts to use for L/R front for my ps3 gamming sessions,lol & for watching blu ray dvds. i have 2) 12" Crystal Mobile pro subs & Alpine type R mids & highs along w/ Crest audio4000 watt amp, Meyer sound labs X-over & Eq & is way too loud (i love it/neighbors hate it). anyway, these lil speakers shake the floors w/ incredible sound, crystal clear mids & low frequency extension & warm highs! im serious! 1 of these speakers fills my living room w/ great sound! the mbquarts X-over is simple but awesome! i've been listening to music all day. Dianna Krall, Tracy Chapman, Steeley Dan..even Reggae & Rock. no matter what i trow at them they play every musical note to perfection! ps try Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon album,lol i only used the Quarts X-overs straight from my amp. & tried tweeters at -06dB, but ended up w/ a final happier setting of -03dB. Very loud & clear speakers, i must admit! Mb Quart didnt dissapoint again, even w/ a smaller driver, now excuseme, i gotta go take another listen, i cant get enough!!

Speakers sound great!
Installed in the rear of 1st Gen XB.
Just as a test I hooked them up to the stock stereo and they sounded real good, installed to the amp they kick hard and the tweeters sound fine not harsh though I do run them at -3db.

I did a lot of research and you will not find a better speaker for the price!

Even though these are discontinued, I'll review them anyway. I ordered these for a 91 Miata, they don't quite fit this car, but I made them fit as I like the separate tweeters these came with. I had to drill out the holes on the door for the tweeters and the panel. This was my very first install of separates on any car, it took a while but I got them installed. The larger speakers were a bit small and barely reached the edges, but managed to get them installed. I put the crossovers inside a sandwich bag and then inside the door to keep them dry when it rains and car washes. So far they have worked fine and are loud enough with just my cheap head unit. The only thing I didn't like about the tweeters is that they attract anything magnetic, like dirt that gets stuck on them. Other than that as long as no one puts their fingers on them they won't break. So I would recommend them or find something else. I just like the way these looked so I didn't really know what to expect, but they turned out fine. I just wished they came with rain covers so you don't have to go looking for them. The ones I bought did not fit, so I had to leave them without one.

If you're into understated quality stop looking and purchase these potent radio bangers. From the tweeters to the "mid woofers", these Quarts make even old songs sound new and alive. I do worry that once I amplify mine I may never leave my drivers seat...seriously.

Great improvement on factory sound..

November 29, 2009

First off, great shipping from this company. I ordered on wednesday and it was here on saturday even though it was a holiday. I ordered these as replacements for my factory speakers which had blown. Right now they are on my deck alone and sound amazing. The widesphere tweeter stands out a lot!! What an improvement...buy them!!

Money Well Spent

The sound of this speaker system is accurate and efficient. The dynamic range is good. I doubt anyone would be disappointed with these speakers. Here's where I deduct points:
Look/design - the midbass grilles are cheesy and ugly, which doesn't matter anyway, because I'm using the GMC original equipment. The tweeter mounts look good, and that matters, because they're right there on the door.
Durability - I had a problem replacing the crossover cover on the passenger side, and had to seal it shut with RTV. I now get to worry that the cover will fall off inside the door.
Ease of Use - see the problem above. Also, the tweeter leads came with very small uninsulated female disconnect terminals, but no male mates to crimp onto new cable for attachment to the crossover. I bought proper mates, but then had to add electrical tape and a nylon tie to keep the contacts separated. Heat-shrink would have been a better idea, but I had none on-hand. Other than that, there was enough hardware supplied to build a barn. One lucky break on the installation of the crossover: The span between the mounting holes nearly matched a couple of holes in the door under the door panel, so a couple of screw anchors, Weld-Bond on the anchors and Loc-Tite on the screws, and hopefully that bad puppy will stay put.

To reiterate, the sound is awesome; I put a set of Polk db461p in the dash and I have to turn them off with the fader when I listen to music, or they kill the accuracy. No matter, the Discus can deliver all the sound I need in that little pickup truck cab, and I can save wear on them by listening to news and sports on the db461p's.
