Priced Per Pair

Speaker Specifications

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.
5" x 7"
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 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.

KortecŪ 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.
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.
150 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.
50 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).
50 - 20,000 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.
2-3/16"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5" x 7-1/8" 
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

Perfect Fit

May 24, 2013

There was some concern if these would fit in my Ford Explorer. The system stated they would not however that was inaccurate. It was a perfect fit and we did not have to drill any new holes.

Boston all day everyday

February 20, 2012

Great speakers, very loud very clear. However, if your trying to get bass out of em, id look elsewhere. If you have a sub, then there are no better speakers in my opinion. But they will distort if you try to run mid bass through them. As long as you keep them within their frequency range, perfectly loud and clear, and last forever.

GREAT SPEAKER, GET THEM WHILE YOU CAN

September 18, 2013

I AM A BIG FAN OF BOSTON ACOUSTICS, I HAVE A PAIR OF THEIR $3500.00 VS336 TOWER SPEAKERS AND THE VS335 CENTER IN MY FAMILY ROOM. THEIR CAR AUDIO IS RIGHT ON PAR WITH THE HOME AUDIO, WHEN I LEARNED THAT BOSTON WAS GOING OUT OF THE CAR AUDIO BUSINESS I WAS VERY SAD. YOU COULD ALWAYS COUNT ON THEM FOR A SUPERIOR PRODUCT. SO I BOUGHT THE SC85 5X7 SPEAKERS AND THE SR80 5X7 PLATE SPEAKERS AND THE G110 SUBWOOFER JUST TO REDO ONE OF MY VEHICLES BEFORE THEY WERE NO LONGER AVAILABLE. NEEDLESS TO SAY THEY ALL SOUND GREAT AND BOSTON WILL BE MISSED IN CAR AUDIO.

Decent Speakers

July 26, 2011

These speakers are of good quality and sound clear, but they almost no low end. They could possibly have more with an amplifier, but I'm not sure.

Decent budget speakers. Sound alright on Deck Amp.

January 19, 2011

I have these in a rear door speakers to replace the stock ones. If you have a good amplified pair of speakers in the front you don't need anything fancy in the back so these are great. They fit the Ford door panels (5x7) perfectly. Currently powered off of an Alpine deck and they only distort at high volumes. Bass and high end are lacking but midrange is good.
