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.
4-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.

Piezoelectric
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.
Highly Oriented Polyolefin (HOP)
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.
Santoprene 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.
300 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
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".
89 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).
30 - 27000 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.
2-1/8"
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 x 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.

one of da best speakers for a price like this

March 28, 2010

i bought 4 of these things for my 1993 Honda Prelude and these things will make u lose ur hearing after the first month!!! 75 watt rms is a severe understatement for these things. they pack a huge punch. the tweeters are amazing; the bass is pretty good 2 but it could be better. u could run these things near their peak power constantly. they are extremely durable. I've had them for about a year and a half n abuse da crap outta them every day and they sound as good as when i first bought them. Definitely worth what u pay for them. the only thing louder than these speakers on my ride is the exhaust, n even then u can hardly hear it over the speakers

Good speakers for the money

January 1, 2010

I have a 2008 Tacoma with the JBL system and replaced the stock speakers in place. Considering the JBL filters that reduce the bass, these actually sounded quite good and balance out the sound with the addition of a subwoofer and tweeter replacement. They fit in the stock rear door brackets as well so no special adapters were needed. I recommend these speakers and for the price they were great.

Sony Speakers

October 7, 2009

Well... I never knew Sony as the car speaker building type. I loved their headphones. And now I love their speakers for the same reason.

Great quality per price paid. With a nice receiver unit (courtesy of Soniceletronix) the speakers sound wonderful. I paid close to nothing for them and received a premium quality sound in return. If you check the frequency response, the bandwidth is quite good, above similar priced and higher priced units.

Before I got these I was thinking about a Sub to complement the Infinity front system and these sony's, but as soon as I turned up the bass on these, you can definitely feel the bass power. your neighbors cant, but you can!

Overall great value.

Sonic electronics delivers as always. Love the free shipping on products!

Nice speakers

January 11, 2010

As with most Sony products, these were easy to install. The sound is exactly what I was looking for... big sound from a small speaker. I used these mainly as rear fill in conjunction with 2 Low-profile Sony 10" subs, and Alpine 3.25" components in the front with an Alpine center speaker in a classic Bronco off of a touchscreen 5.1 Alpine head unit

Disappointed in Sony this time

July 24, 2009

The specs on these speakers are impressive but the actual performance was something I did not expect. I was totally disappointed when I heard them. They sounded no better than the paper factory speakers that they replaced. My head unit is Sony. I should have spent a little more money and stayed in the Blaupunkt family as far as speakers. I would not recommend these speakers to anyone who appreciates quality sound.

July 9, 2009

These speakers are really clear. I am powering them with my Hifonics ZXi 8010 (it puses 55 wats RMS to it) and the sound great. The highs are wonderful and the bass reproduction from it is good (even with my crossover set to 100 Hz). Bang for buck, I can't take anything away from these speakers for the 3 weeks I've owned/used them.

Sony XS-GTX1640

November 18, 2009

I purchase these speakers about 4 months ago. I would give them a C+ on sound. The price was an A+ . Two local car stereo dealers had them on sale in their business for 129.00 therefore I know I got a great price on them. The highs sounded really good but the bass is in the speakers is not good at all.

Got what I paid for

August 10, 2009

Got this products for months. The highs are crystal sharp and clear when comparing to Sony's new component speakers. But the bass is a little bit too weak Maybe this is the downside of 4-way speakers.
But for this price, i got what i paid for. This is a good upgrade from factory 20W speakers.
