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 P1683 is a 6" x 8" 2-Way speaker that has all the features mentioned above.

Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Punch (Rockford Fosgate)
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.
Pair
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 8"
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 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 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.
130 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.
65 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".
90 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).
65 - 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
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.
2-1/4"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
4-15/16" x 7 
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.
No

super loud and crisp

March 9, 2011

I am pushing these with a Kenwood KDC-HD545U HD radio and they sound so clear. I also have the Fosgate p3l-s12 sub. These speakers are a complete change from factory-not a ton of bass on thier own but adequate. I have a 99 f250 Super Duty diesel. They fit perfect. If you have a F250-you have to get these, you wont be disappointed.

Look No Further

March 15, 2011

If you're not wanting to go all out but you also don't want to go cheap then step up a bit from the $50 range and get these! These speakers slam. They fit perfect into my 2000 Ford Ranger. It's a shame the two rear speakers face right directly into the seat but when you crank it it's like having a built in electric massage chair. Yes they are nasty. Crystal clear, sounds like your in a symphony hall and with a cheap $50 amp they hit hard for their size. I do not see how ANYONE could be disappointed in these, they're superb!

Awsome

November 7, 2010

I got these speakers to replace my mach 460 in my mustang and they are being run off of a Bazooka amp that puts out 60rms and they take it all day long with no distortion. It took me about 2 weeks of getting them put in for me to get a ticket cuz the cop could hear it from 2 blocks away and that was only about 75% of the way up. Overall they sound clear and I would Highly recommend them.

i knew rockford fosgate were good

March 21, 2010

I already knew Rockfords were good. So that's why I got these for my 2003 Ford Taurus ses. The factory speakers sucked. My aftermarket head unit is pushin about 17 watts rms which isn't allot at all. But these speakers have great bass, mids, and highs. The bass from tech n9ne vibrates my mirrors with the windows down. These are great speakers and will become even better if u get an amp for them. I would recommend these speakers to anyone. Have had speakers since September 2009
