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.
2-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.

Kortec® Plastic
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.
Copolymer
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.
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.
250 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.
85 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).
45 - 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
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.
2-7/16"
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.
5-1/4" x 5-1/4" 
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.
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.

Fantastic!

June 24, 2011

I was a little hesitant to pick these up after reading the reviews on this site, but my budget was under $200 for a set so I was not willing to grab the Pro's and I am glad I went with my gut because these speakers sound fantastic in my very small car. I only have these components for speakers in my 2 seater (I pulled the rear 3" out) and the sound is amazing, crystal clear highs, and decent mids, to my ears they are a great sounding speaker set. I had a 5 year old Infinity Reference pair before these and to my ear, these sound much warmer to me.
I have a Pioneer digital amp feeding 75 watts to each component set and they crank! very detailed sound stage.
My only complaint is the crossovers could use a redesign IMO, they are HUGE and setting them up is a little different, but after tucking them in behind my center console all is well.

Highly recommended by my ears.

SR60s Worth It? Yes...

November 22, 2010

I have owned several Nissans over the years with the Bose stereo and just recently have conducted a project to upgrade a Nissan without the Bose. My intention was to try and recreate the Bose sound quality as best as possible without going broke. I went to several car audio retailers in my area to audition several speaker manufacturers and the Boston Acoustics seemed to sound the best. I also liked the idea that I could get these speakers from Sonic at a much lower cost than $400.00 retail. The installation did take a little time, however these speakers are well worth $190.00. They are clean sounding, have crisp sound through the high/midrange, and do a good job of producing lows for a 6.5”. I am using an Alpine front end with the Alpine KTP-445 Plug N Play Amp which puts out 45 Watt/Ch. These speakers definitely needed the extra power. I am very happy with these speakers and will be installing a 10” Boston Acoustics sub in the near future to complete this system.

Good sounding speakers. At first they were a little on the bright side but they warmed up after their break in. Have the tweeters set -4db installed in a 04 Silverado.

I have had these for about 6 months now and are very pleased with these speakers. Good sound with the right amplifier. DO NOT buy a cheap amp to put on these speakers! They need good quality amperage. The only downside to these speakers were for my vehicle, I had to reuse my factory brackets because the brackets that came with the set did not work! A little pricey for the quality.

Great For Critical Listening!

January 27, 2011

The SR60 component speakers are some of the best speakers that I have come across for higher end car audio. They handle generous amounts of power well and produce a clear and crisp sound stage with a variety of music.

These speakers are mounted in the stock locations: front door and dashboard. In addition I have Boston Acoustic SC60 coaxial speakers installed in the rear doors. These speakers are powered by a Rockford Fosgate T400-4 amplifier which pushes ~70 watts to each corner.

In addition, I have another Rockford Fosgate mono amplifier powering a P3 subwoofer of the same brand. My Eclipse head unit with 5 volt pre-amp outputs controls all crossover frequencies and with it's built-in parametric equalizer and auto time alignment feature it produces an awesome sound stage that will blow most people away.

These speakers are an excellent value, and I have found them to be superb in their musicality. I highly recommend them for the discriminating listener who doesn't want to spend thousands on car speakers. I personally have installed several car speaker brands into my vehicles through the years. Some of which are MB Quart, Nakamichi, Dynaudio, and Boston Acoustics. These SR60s are some of the best. Enjoy!

I have had Bostons in three of my auto's and in my theatre room. They never disappoint! Definitely recommend these speakers. Not too 'tingy or extreme highs', more realistic and smooth sound.

Nice sounding speakers

November 11, 2010

Boston has always made quality products, and the SR60s are no exception. High quality construction, good design, adequate included accessories. The crossovers are quite large and take a bit of thought as to where to put them. Nice adjustability in the crossovers between the tweeter attenuation options and the SQ1/SQ2 jumper. The tweeters are large, and the included housings require a decent amount of space to install them. Instead, I cut out some wood shims and epoxied them to the tweeters themselves, then used some industrial double-sided adhesive foam tape to mount them in my doors for a low-profile installation. They work just fine. Sound quality is crisp and very clear. Woofers take some time to break in, so expect minimal bass for the first dozen hours or so. All in all, a great system for less than $200. Definitely comparable to components costing much more.

SR60 have great tweeters and exception highs but lack midbass like most of Bostons components. If you have a good sub I would highly rec. Going with these or the pros (which don't have bass either) but if you dont have a good sub I would rec. going with the JL C5's which have great midbass
