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" x 9"
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.
3-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.

PEI 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.
Carbon Graphite IMPP Interlaced Aramid Fiber
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.
270 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.
40 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".
93 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).
28 - 28,000 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
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.
2-7/8"
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.

I originally purchased the precursors to the 6963R for my boat, now I know these are NOT marine rated but all the equal marine speakers were SO tweekie in their sound. Real high pitched, just nasty.
That was 4 years ago, and my boat spends very little time NOT in the water, sometimes 4-6 days exposed to 110-115 degrees on the riverbank.
They install easy, and the sound is Unequaled for the buck, and did not hesitate to get these when it was time.

Great speakers for the money

September 24, 2010

I would definitely recommend these speakers. I installed them in the front doors of my 2010 Tacoma. I also put a set of the 61/2" in the back doors. I also deadened my doors while I had them apart and updated my stock tweeters to Pioneer. I bought adapters for the doors as they don't fit in the stock speaker holes. I didn't buy the speaker wire adapters and had to cut off the stock speaker plugs and crimp on new connections for the speakers. I'm very happy with the sound for the money. I like to listen to my music loud and these speakers have handled it well. I'm very satisfied!

GREAT SPEAKERS!!!!

September 9, 2010

I have owned a set of Pioneers speakers identical to this before. When they were installed they hooked them up to my amp that controlled my subwoofer. The end result is that I blew the old speakers. Me and my best friend installed them ourselves and I abuse them! I dish out everything possible to them and they handle every bit of it. I'm actually thinking about buying another set to make it 3 sets of 6x9's in my car. It was totally worth the money spent.

Great speakers

August 2, 2010

I installed these in my 2003 Dodge Ram in the front doors. They seemed to lack bass compared to the stock speakers for the first few weeks, but it seemed like they just need to get broken in. I cranked the sound on a couple songs and the bass seemed kinda weak, but the mids and highs were much better than stock (although at the same time, I installed the TS-T110 also). A few weeks later that same group of songs would rattle the junk in the door pockets and make the mirror shake... so give them some time to get broken in. The product description says the woofer surround is butyl rubber, so I was thinking it would be like the TS-D6902R (which i found does not fit in the Dodge Ram) but it's more like a rubber coated cloth. I'd still definitely recommend these to anyone looking for an upgrade.

I bought these speakers as an upgrade from stock, and I've been very pleased with them. I don't have it amped, but the highs and mids will still come out crystal clear if balanced correctly. They do lack in bass, so if you want bass, you better plan on buying a sub. The price for these is incredible, especially for such an excellent sound. Definitely a good buy.

These speakers are great, especially for the price. I have had them for about 6 months now and I can't complain. They provide pretty good quality and the capability of shaking the mirrors of my civic. Good bass for rear speakers and a definite improvement from the stock. These are good speakers and I would recommended them to anyone.

You get what you pay for. Not very accurate speakers, but a great price, hence the average rating. I should have stuck with Boston or JL but that's what I get for trying to save a buck! Installed this weekend, may be ripping them out next weekend.

Decent Speaker, good value

October 23, 2009

I bought these here at Sonic after my local audio shop tried charging me $116 for the same pair. I am running these off my Kenwood head unit (50x4 no external amp) Easy to install, but I recommend using a speaker wire harness to just plug it in instead of splicing. The highs are clean and bass hit is decent. These are well worth the 50$. Would buy again no question. Bottom line- if you are looking for good quality on a budget , these are where its at.
