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.
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.
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.

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.
Thermo-Plastic Elastomer
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.
150 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.
75 watts
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).
53 - 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.
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.
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 
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.
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.

Marine Speaker

September 22, 2010

Nice upgrade from my stock system. Matched with an Alpine PDX 5 these speakers are crisp and sound excellent.

Great Marine Speaker!!

July 19, 2012

I have these in my UTV and also a pair on my jet ski. They take tons of water and abuse and still play strong. The highs are nice and bright and project lots of volume. The bass is pretty good, mine are in sealed enclosures. Bass is as good as you can expect from a speaker of this size. Best feature is the suspended tweeter design allowing for a totally sealed woofer. Have never liked the idea of a coax speaker with post mounted tweeter for a true marine speaker. They also have a solid construction design I side and out. Hope you like yours as much as I like mine.

Stylish Yet Subpar

August 23, 2010

First off let me say I was impresses by both the customer service and expedited shipping I received from Sonic Electronix. The speakers are truly quality built and marine grade. The styling is wonderful with true stainless grills and glossy black baskets. Now for the bad. Having installed other products from other major brands the performance of these is lacking. The highs are muddy and the bass is like something from a 1980's boom-box. I currently have Alpines in the front and these in the back. The Alpines murder the Rockfords. Both are hooked up to the same Kenwood 700 series marine receiver. I am hoping that once I purchase a separate amplifier the Rockfords will pick up the pace. I doubt that the highs will ever rival some of my other top picks from my 12 years installing mobile audio, but from things I have read there is still hope for the bass. I would recommend these based on looks and durability, but these are not audiophile speakers by any means.

Perfect for the bike

April 28, 2014

I installed the M262 speakers, along with the RF PBR 300X4 amp, in the Dead Center fairing on my '02 Harley Road King. Installation was simple and so far, they are what I expected - loud and clear. Hopefully the durability will be the same (I've only had them for a couple weeks which is why I graded Overall and Durability at 4 stars). Sonic Electronix is the place to buy from. Their prices were the best, the purchasing process was easy and their technical support was very helpful. Ride safe !!
