A perfect system starts off with perfect aftermarket car speakers. If you are a fanatic of a great sounding speaker, then the Rockford Fosgate Punch Series is meant for you. It is a full-range speaker with a flex-fit basket to ensure compatibility. By utilizing slots instead of single sized screw holes, allows for a slight adjustment of the speaker when mounted. This becomes useful if you are mounting the speakers in an odd shaped factory speaker location. The integrated concealed crossover hides the crossover inside the basket, decreasing and simplifying installation time. Minimizing the time between taking the speakers out of the box to installing them in your vehicle, the Punch speakers feature an OEM Adapter plate system that allows full-range speaker to fit in certain openings. The adapter plate features “break-away” tabs that can be removed to fit all speaker sizes.

The Punch series speakers feature VAST (Vertical Attach Surround Technique) which increases a speaker’s effective radiating cone area without complicating installation. The design eliminates the large flat glue surface area which allows the surround to be shifted for increased cone area. With this, nominal efficiency and maximum output capabilities are improved. The P1653 is a 6-1/2" 3-way speaker that has all the features mentioned above.

  • 6-1/2" Punch Series 3-Way Car Speakers

    • Peak: 240 watts per pair / 120 watts each

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.
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 (Polyetherimide)
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.
Mineral-Filled Polypropylene
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.
120 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.
60 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).
60 - 24,000 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.
2-1/8"
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.
5-1/2" x 5-1/2" 
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.
Yes
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.

I purchased 2 pair as drop in units untill i do a complete upgrade. Purchased these purely on price and current amp power available. Great, still works like new and sounds like new. Super great value for the price.. Just wish they were not made in China and still made in USA like old Punch series.. Damn the economy.

Very Surprised and Satisfied

August 11, 2010

I'll readily admit that i was a bit worried and apprehensive about getting these speakers. This is all because i never owned Rockford Fosgate products and because i thought that all the rave reviews for these speakers were just "hype". Well let me be the one to tell you that these speakers definitely deserve all the great reviews and more! The price for these speakers are great due to these speakers being more than their worth. The bass is very good matched with my Pioneer HU and the highs are crisp. Keep in mind that i have no amp and running these speakers strictly off of the headunit. Sonic Electronix is also a good online retailer with their prices and shipping. All my items were packaged very nice without anything missing. When my package arrived i immediately went to have the speakers installed to my rear deck and what a difference! The one con that i have though is that if i did install the speakers myself, then they would be a bit tricky but nothing major. I'm so excited about these speakers that i now want some components to replace my stock speakers in the front. I'll definitely be sure to not only get Rockford speakers but i will also order them from Sonic Electronix as well.

Word WOW is an underststement

November 19, 2010

Most people say don't expect a lot of base from these speakers. Not true, they have tremendous base and can handle everything my stereo can give them.
After I installed them in my 2006 GMC Sierra my description is WOW and that in my opinion is an understatement. So if you are looking for a great sounding speaker that lives up to its Fosgate name then don't hesitate and buy it. However first check all measurements yourself and be sure that they will fit. Because of that misleading information I almost did not buy them. However I am tremendously glad I did. Great product, fantastic price, what more can I say... Just buy them. You’ll be glad you did.

Harder to fit than most

October 23, 2010

I've own this for 6 month now and I wish I could tell how good they are.

The fact and reality is they are build bigger and stronger in the back than standard 6.5 speaker. So, universal spacer from Metra or other brand wont fit. I wish a special spacer riser adapter came with it.

I only have a few month left on the lease for my car. The next car I get I will have a custom spacer made especially for it. The option I'm looking into is not MDF because that would swell with humidity and water getting in. Rather this new solid plastic plank use for patio or modding the panel with fiber glass. Either way it's going to be expensive. I know squat about fiber glass and I imagine it's going to be hard to carve that plastic with a router bit.

Fosgate P1653

September 24, 2010

Sorry for the delay in getting to this but I purchase these speaker sometime back and they are still kicking strong as ever. I previously had components installed in rear and doors but I am not sure if the quality or weather made them bite. I self installed the Fosgate P1653 in the door of a 96 Impala ( custom fit ). The kit that ships with the Fosgate P1653 still was able to be used and for the rear mounting. I took my front door panels off the other day for repairs and was amazed to see how good they still looked. Every once in a while I will turn down the L712 subs to listen to the subs and ride highs all day. They handle mid range well and the tweeters are crisp and clear like they are components. I definitely recommend the Fosgate P1653.

September 17, 2010

I ordered the P6153's a few months ago they sound great. I ran them off the radio at first they were great as mids. The lows weren't there though that I would have wanted. Now they are amped and EQ'd and they sound awesome. Very clear but can't hit the lows I wish they had. Honestly great buy for the buck.

If the enclosure on your vehicle did not create bass with the stock speakers, you can pretty much bet these won't help either. The highs and mids are very high quality though. You won't regret if you are replacing stock speakers, but my WARNING is just don't expect a lot of bass. There is a rockford fosgate with a deeper depth that I have bought that really hit, but the stock speakers had good bass too.

May 25, 2010

These were the first speakers I have ever bought for anything. I only went with them because my father, who worked for Sonic Electronix for 12 years as an installer, told me Rockford Fosgates were his favorite brand. I can see why! These speakers are amazing. I replaced my stock door speakers with these. I had plans of replacing the speakers behind my seats with subs, but never mind! These speakers are good enough. I'm just going to replace the 4" speakers behind my seat with some 6x9's and be done. That should be more than enough. It already shakes my little ranger.

My first pair of RF Punch but not my last. Was skeptical cause of the price but these are as good as the Pioneer D series I've had. Very clear and with tremendous bass. Admittedly I'm too old to care much for exaggerated bass, but these have plenty to compliment all my music. Just running these off a Pioneer head unit but will be hooking up an amp soon to really bring out what they're capable of. FYI, the adapter plate does not work with Ford P/U 6x8 applications. Had to custom install but worth it.

Installed four of these in my 2007 JK Wrangler 2dr and these are amazing. I installed the first two in the sound bar powered by the stock head unit and there was not much improvement. I then replaced the OEM deck with a Kenwood that the sound bar came alive. I like them so much I just replaced the two dash speakers with these Punch. The sound is amazing, loud with no distortion, and surprisingly good bass response. I would put these in again in a second!

I installed these today and hooked up to a Pioneer DEH 1350 headunit. The sound is excellent. I played several tracks including Queens 'Invisible Man" The bass was tight and precise, midrange good and highs sweet and crisp, just the same as my Mordaunt Shorts worth mega$. I placed them in the front doors and went to a great deal of effort to mount them with foam sealing between the speaker and the metal door. The effort was well worth it. I would definitely recommend these. I have spent $300 total for a head unit and these speakers and the sound is better than thousand dollar systems, I have previously owned.

Best Speakers I Have Heard For The Price

November 10, 2010

I am a car audio fanatic, heard some entry level and even some expensive speakers that sound good, but for the price, these things are AMAZING and meet the standards of your high end speakers...I have 8 of them in my 98 Maxima on a 800 watt fosgate 4 channel and these things are loud and crisp and can even be heard over 145 db of bass. Worth every penny! Buy NOW!!! Rockford fosgate is hands down the best speaker (and amplifier) company!!

Rockford

July 30, 2010

These have a good sound but they seem to need more power to run. I have these in the front doors of a crew cab with polk audios in the back doors, the highs are better but the bass was a little lacking with the power level of an aftermarket stereo. I finally put in a sub and amp, with this they really rock and seem to handle the power fine. If i have another polk fail i would replace with this speaker, i listen to mostly classic rock with this setup

Good product. Fast shipping.

July 5, 2010

I have had a pair of these for a few months and they have been a vast improvement over my stock set. I had to do some modifying to get them to fit into my particular vehicle correctly but I have been very happy and satisfied with them.

Very nice speakers!

June 22, 2010

I have these speakers in a 97' S10. I don't have them hooked up to an amp, but these speakers still rock! They have a good amount of bass, and their mids and highs are pretty good! I have them in the doors, and the 4 x 6's punches in the dash. Very good setup. Hopefully going to amp them soon!

wow surprenant!

April 13, 2010

I purchased these speakers and installed them on the back panel of my Aveo, while keeping my factory speakers in the doors. When I raise the volume, I only hear the Rockford Fosgate. Real quality and a very good sound - I recommend them to everyone.

March 6, 2010

These speakers are just amazing. Bought just one pair for the front doors on my Matrix and they are impressive. Honestly unless you want to make a lot of noise i don't see the need for a sub. Even do at first i didn't think about buying a set for the rear doors these speakers sound so good that i'm going to put a pair on the rear and then decide on the sub. I believe you will be very pleased with this product. Wont rate the durability since just got the install today.

Best RF Deal Out There!

December 25, 2009

I have 4 of these in my 2000 tahoe powered by a Hifonics ZXi 4410. After a few songs on about 3/4 power your ears ring for a good couple hours. Crisp sounding highs, moderate midbase. louder then my friends infinities that he payed double the price for! had to shave the mounting ring to get them to fit in the front doors.

This is a great looking speaker that will deliver clear pristine sound in such a wide range. I am still amazed. They were more than i expected.
And they fitted right in the door of my 99 chevy truck with no mods. Sound is awesome, head unit is a JVC KDR 600.

One Happy Customer

May 14, 2011

After purchase of Rockford Fosgate P1653 speakers from Sonic Electronix I am tremendously pleased with the quality of service they have shown me and tremendously happy with the quality of the product I purchased. However I am disappointed with some of the reviews I read on line before my purchase that almost caused me to be swayed from purchasing this product.
The reviews have mentioned a lack of BASS which in my opinion is the furthermost thing from the truth. These speakers are awesome and the BASS is adequate if not exceeds the expectations in delivery of sound from that size of speaker. Also the reviews stated it would not fit my 2006 GMC Sierra. That too is a lie because they fit great. Nonetheless despite my gripes with other people’s reviews I am glad I did the research myself and decided to buy this great product. I highly recommend both the product and the company I purchased it from which is SONIC Electronix. Thank you for the opportunity to express my thoughts on this great product.

January 4, 2011

Good speaker at a great price. Decent base, decent high's. The mid range is a bit lacking. If you're looking for strong bass you still need the sub, but you can't go wrong for the price of these. No regrets whatsoever.
It's not the top of the line, but it does not have the top of the line
price either. Buy it.

Sound Great

November 10, 2010

I bought 2 pioneer 12in subs and I wanted some door speakers, these are the speakers I found. They may be cheap, but they sound magnificent. The only thing I didn't like was when I tried to install them, my window hit them so I had to make a spacer for them. Other than that I highly recommend these. They sound great and aren't expensive. Eventually I plan to buy to more for me back seat, once I get another amp.

I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who is looking to replace their door speakers and want good sound. I really like Rockford fosgate and these speakers show how good of a job they do. They come with a tweeter built in which gives it an even better sound, these are good speakers for a good price.

Excellent value

September 15, 2010

For the price, I doubt I could have done better. They fit like a champ in my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I used them for the rear door speakers. The bass response was better than I expected. Very tight and thumpy. They really rounded out the system and were a bargain at 65.00. Less than half what my local dealer wanted to charge for similar speakers. I bought a pair of RF components for the front and they worked just as well and were a great value as well.

I installed these in my 2007 Tundra it was a difference in night and day. The clarity and crispness is outstanding. Ive had multiple vehicles with multiple speakers in them and this is by far favorite. the old saying is "you get what you pay for" but you are really getting more than what your paying for. I highly recommend anybody that loves great sound and saving money to buy this product.

read the disclaimer!

January 28, 2011

From what I can hear from the one speaker I have sorta hooked up to the left rear deck, it sounds fine, but I really can't review it as I should. Turns out I did not read the fine print on the "will these fit your car" page. Yes, they fit in the holes in the doors, but they hit the window so no they don't fit there, which is where I wanted them. I have subsequently tried them on the rear deck, and the hole is big enough, but I would have to abandon the stock covers and use the grilles provided with the speakers, but they don't cover the fabric like the original Honda covers do-not a pretty sight to see bare metal surrounding the speaker.
Moral of the story: do your research and don't trust the "fit your car" specs entirely.

Rockford Fosgate Punch P1653

February 18, 2011

great set of speakers to round out with the RF P1652-S set I installed in the front. I did nothing special-just installed them. The sound is amazing-planning on adding an amp & sub to up the performance a notch. Sonic had the best prices I found, and if your looking to add better sound with the possibility of expanding your system later, these are the perfect fit.

I put 4 of these speakers in my Dodge Dakota Quad Cab yesterday, replacing the factory Infinity speakers. My seat was thumping, mirrors were shaking, and neighbors were yelling. I am using the factory Infinity deck with no amp. The sound is crisp at both very low and very high volumes. I would pick these speakers again and again.

best speakers i've had

May 22, 2010

I've had over 5 kinds of speakers ranging from $25-120 per pair. these are by far the best not because of the price but because they hit so good. perfect for rock and rap. very good lows and highs. good bass response. doesn't distort at high volume.

have 2 10" Kenwood subs, and 4 pair of these in my Nissan 200sx. Cant turn my head unit past volume 15 without my ears ringing. Powered by a 1000w crunch amp, and another Kenwood amp hooked up to cap.
