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.
6-1/2"
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 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-Polymer Composite
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.
Copolymer
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.
250 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.
125 watts
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 - 22,000 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.
3 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.
2-3/8"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.

PRO60s are excellent sounding speakers

December 15, 2010

These speakers bring out the detail in your music even at high volume levels without distortion. At first the tweeters sounded a little harsh and aggressive. So after doing some reserch I found that my 85 watt per channel RMS amp was being pushed into clipping. So I installed a 150x2 RMS amp. Now the tweeters sound nice and smooth at high volume levels. After a few weeks I had to go back and reset the systems levels and gains. Dont know why. Maybe the speakers had to break in. Sound damping material brings out the best in these speakers. The PRO60s are one of the best sounding speakers I have owned. So if you have high powered subs these speakers will keep up with them and balance out your system.

Best Boston Sound Ever

December 18, 2010

I purchased these about four months ago, since then I made sure they were properly installed had enough power and were adjusted properly. (That is very important) so after my break in period I opened them up and had an eargasm. It is like hearing my entire music collection for the first time; I did not even know what I was missing. These babies have spatial and tonal clarity beyond anything I have ever heard. To those reviews stating that the highs are to harsh, please remember there is a tweeter attenuator adjustment inside the crossover. Who can go wrong with such a great company like Boston, and who can go wrong with Sonic prices? I will buy only from here with their incredible prices and great Customer support.

Wonderful speakers

August 28, 2010

I just installed these speakers earlier today. I am running them off of an Infinity Kappa four with the tweeter in the factory door location. The sound is incredible, they sound more rich and warm than the Infinity Kappa Perfects I replaced them with. The 3 ohm impedance is a plus, they are very loud and clear. I was very impressed with the low frequency response of these speakers, although I have them filtered so my Polk SR can pick up the low end and lighten their work load. So far I have tried and listened to many different types of speakers around this price range (These being the most expensive yet) and the Bostons are clearly the best. I would recommend these speakers to anyone who is looking for quality sound reproduction and supurb detail. I am always very skeptical before buying a set of speakers, but i was more than pleased with these.

Boston Acoustics PRO60SE

August 18, 2010

This is the second time I have purchased these speakers for use in a ski boat. Clear, concise sound that doesn't distort when the volume is turned up. Classic, clean look. Pair them with good amps (like JL Audio) and you'll be thrilled with the quality.

Very BIG dip in the mid range

October 16, 2013

Very BAD frequency response for a set of speakers in this price range. BIG dip in the mid range. Maybe as bad as -4db @ 1.5k. I had them in my SUV for less then 3 months when the woofer blew on the left. A few weeks later the tweeter blew on the right.

Phenomenal sound. Tweeters require a fair amount of tuning or they get bright (some call it harsh) very quickly. Excellent mid-bass. Just Wow.

Bought and use Boston PRO 60SE - Great purchase

January 10, 2012

For the price, these speakers are really great! They have a great sound and I like the installation options. You can either mount them with the tweeter coaxially or as separates. The crossovers are really burly and do their job. Did I mention how great the sound is? I have four of these in a 350Z Roadster and they are the heart of my system. With the top down and rolling the sound is great. Paired with a excellent amp and a quality HU and you're good to go!

Amazing Speakers

January 5, 2012

I must say these are some of the most amazing speakers i have ever owned. They get loud and i mean LOUD! Without distortion. What i really like is the tweeter, it does not sound too harsh. I love the fact that they are biampable. DO NOT buy these speakers if you are feeding them less then 150w (thats still too little) they start to come alive at around 200w (i was feeding them close to 300w with a GT-2300 amp) and they came alive. It was my favorite setup until i blew one of the speakers in a reinstall. Only downside to this was the cone area is smaller then a normal 6.5 and the it runs in 3 ohms and not 4. If you are looking for a great over all speaker that can play HIP HOP - ROCK- JAZZ this is your speaker. Trust me i spent alot of money on speaker. My current speaker set is Focal 165v3 (great speakers but i miss my pro60).

Can NOT beat the value!

November 15, 2011

Extremely happy with these speakers, and you simply can't argue with the value. I put the tweeters in the dash of my Xterra and they were WAY too bright, but thankfully the crossover is adjustable and a -2db drop made them sound perfect. Thanks Sonic Electronix for a great deal and fast shipping!

Outstanding Speakers

August 11, 2011

I love Boston speakers. Put these in my wife's car and they are amazing. Took a while to break in but now the detail and quality are amazing. I really like the metal tweeters in the Boston. I have JL C-5's in my car and wish I had these Boston's. The silk tweeter just does not do it for me.

I have used Boston Acoustics for car audio and home equipment for years and have never been let down. These PRO60SE can handle anything you can put in to them, the more power you give them the better they sound. The price is very reasonable. If you want something good thats fine but if you want something great these are it. MM

Great set, loves power

March 11, 2011

Pros: Shallow mount depth Attenuation options for the tweeter (-0db, -2db, and -4db) via crossover Soaks up power fed to them without distorting (provided input isn't distorted) Cons: Expensive compared to entry-level Tweeters almost require using the mounting adapters Overall: Running an entry-level amp rated at 90W RMS @ 4 Ohm to these. Slightly below RMS of speakers, but not an issue if I don't feed distortion to them. Great clean sound although tweeters needed attenuation to -2db or -4db as they are fairly harsh at -0db. At this price level, most interested parties are already well aware of the capabilities of these so this review is likely unnecessary.

Best speakers I've heard.

January 18, 2011

I have these powered by a Fosgate T400-2, so at 3 ohms impedance they are getting ~200W a piece and they use it all. At the loudest listening levels there is still zero distortion. The tweeters at first sounded a bit bright to me but they seemed to become a bit less harsh after some break in time. The sound from the tweeters for voice or cymbals/high hats is amazing. Very very precise. The low-end from the woofers is also good, but you will probably want a sub to help them out with below 60 Hz. The highlight for me is the mid-range bass. The drums and guitar sound amazing and pack a huge punch with no lag between. The crossover is also very solid. You have have trouble hiding it in your door panels as they are large.

Boston Acoustic Pro 60 SE

January 5, 2011

Hi good people of the Internet, let me start by saying that I am an audio maniac, infected with the disease of loving music more then the average. I have professionally recorded as a musician in several studios and after working on several albums I really got into car audio. I always wanted to know what was the best. I purchased some Rockford Fosgate, I purchased some Focals, I only dealt with high end brands brands that I was told were the "best". Now my new install was done as recently as January 4, 2011 just to keep you on the loop. Being tired of all the various shenanigans that I had experienced thru my years of being a car audio maniac, I decided to go to a professional shop this time. They dynamated all of my doors, including my trunk so there would be no rattle. I am using a Kenwood Excelon DNX-6960 with three 5v pre amps as my head unit, Alpine PDX-5 as my amp to run my front and rear speakers, including my two 12's who are Rockford Fosgate H2's. Now let me make sure I make this point perfectly clear to anyone reading this post, even do it has only been two days since my install and these speakers still have a break in period, let it it be understood that these are the best speakers that I have ever heard in a car!!!!!!! I have owned $1500 pair of Focals and they do not even come close to the Pro 60 SE!!! I repeat not close!!! I owned the Focal K2p's and let me tell you the Boston acoustics are the truth!!! When I told my uncle who has been a music maniac for at least thirty years, his only comment was "Boston Acoustic?? Why that is for the connoisseur of music a true Audiophile." My uncle was right!!! My only regret in this entire process is that rather then getting a Secound set of Boston Pro 60 SE for the back doors I got a set of brand new components the t2's by Rockford fosgate. Don't get me wrong the Rockford's are good but the Boston's are phenomenal!!!!! Simply amazing!!!!! I can't explain the cleanses of sound that I get out of these speakers with my Alpine amp. I wanted in amp that was good and would not suck to much power, yet could give me insane sound, well these 6 1/2 speakers gave me that and more. One last thing before I go off into the sunset, get a professional shop that knows what they are doing to install these bad boys so you can get the most out of them and take them to there full potential, I have only begun to enjoy these and when I listen to music it is loud and I like it crystal clear. One more last thing, anyone that bad mouth's these speakers either don't know what they are talking about, those not know how to install this product properly our works for another brand and is telling lies about this product for a market advantage, and that is the bottom ligne. Boston Acoustic is the crystal clear truth!!!!
