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.
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.
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.

Silk
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.
Aluminum
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.
180 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.
150 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".
88 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
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.
2.48"
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.
5.5" x 5.5" 
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.
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.

awesome speaker

June 15, 2012

The last time I set up a system I did it with top of the line MB Quarts 3 way components powered by A JL amp. I changed the car and kept the amp- but this time I did not want to spend as much. I did my research and noted that this speaker was favorably reviewed. I figured I'd give them a shot and to date I have no regrets. The imageging is at the level of a high end speaker. The interaction between the tweeter and the mid bass driver is accurate. These speakers are pretty efficient as well. The voices come out clear and they were not bass shy. Overall, this very good speaker. I now know why this speaker is highly recommended and if you purchase them you will as well.

Amazing Quality

October 26, 2011

I was a little skeptical at first because I've never heard of this brand but I was on the phone with a Sonic rep to recommend another component set because the boston acoustic set was out of stock. I am very impressed with these. My local shop was blown away. I use a DLS CA 23 amp to run this and a Kenwood DNX7160 head unit. For a sub I have a Phoenix Gold ti10 and a Phoenix Gold s1000 and all together this sounds amazing. The quality I was looking for.

DLS Ultimate UP6i

July 23, 2012

Ive heard a lot of different brands in vehicles and boats. I was a little worried about these but after reading a lot of good reviews I figured I'd give them a shot. Let me just say I am very impressed. I rock my stereo pretty load and dont think I've came close to there full potential yet. They truly perform. not a hint of distortion or the slightest lack in clarity has even been thought of. Will continue with DLS products for mids/highs here on out

Cant go wrong with these!

November 2, 2011

These are some of the very best speakers you can buy. Main reason I purchased these was for the 150 rms power handling and shallow mounting speaker depth. Also price was nice for a speaker of this quality. I really didn't expect this speaker to sound as clear as it is. I looked around for good while and found these speakers to have, by far, the highest customer satisfaction rating. Save your time and money and get these so you wont be disapointed.

Outstanding sound from DLS Ultimate Up6i

February 21, 2012

I really love this system. Installed it in my 2011 Nissan Versa hatchback about 7 months ago. I drive the system with a JL 6 channel amp with 4 channels bridged (150W RMS to each side of the UP6i's) and the other 2 channels driving a JL external/enclosed subwoofer. The system sounds so good that I elected to disconnect my rear door speakers and simply focus on sound quality.

Of course, I deadened both front doors completely before I did the installation. That really is a necessity if one wants good sound. I installed the mid-woofers in the car stock locations in the bottom front of each door (with minimum modification required) and installed the tweeters about 12" above the mid-woofers using the external mounting fixtures provided. By tilting them up and in towards the drivers and passenger's seats, they provide an outstanding sound stage and image from that location in the Versa.

The system can play dynamic, hard hitting music or it can play soft and mellow however, either way the details and musicality remain outstanding. The aluminum mid-woofers provide very balanced sound with very good mid bass kick. The silk dome tweeters are pure and provide a very open and natural sound, definitely not fatiguing at all. I really love the speakers and would highly recommend them to anyone who loves a variety of music.

One last comment. I originally was powering them with only two channels of JL power at 80W RMS and they sounded very good. But when I bridged 4 channels together to provide 2 channels of 150 W RMS to each speaker, their performance got even better, particularly the dynamics at low levels. Oh yes, I forgot to say that I used the passive crossovers that came with the system rather than go active.

I bought these after reading many reviews about their sound quality. In the past I used mostly Infinity, Polk and CDT components. These definately have a noticibly better sound quality to them. Especially in the midbass sound range. Best sounding comps I've ever installed. Love DLS.
