Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
XS (Image Dynamics)
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.
6-1/2"
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.
Midrange (Midwoofer)
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.
Ceramic 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.
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.
125 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".
92 dB
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.

No
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.
3"
Bottom-Mount Depth
The depth when installed from the bottom of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the top of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
3-1/8"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5-5/8" x 5-5/8" 
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

Image Dynamics XS65 Review

September 20, 2012

Well I consider myself a person who really cares about the way my stereo sounds. I love Image Dynamics products (speakers only). I do not have any experience with their amps or processors. I especially love the Idmax subs. They are by far the best sounding subs I have ever heard (including JL Audio, RE, and even Image Dynamics Idv3 and IDQ v2 and v3 subs ). I have a modded 2006 Ls430 with old school US Amps amplifiers, an Alpine Headunit (IVA-D901) and processor (PXA-H701) along with all Image Dynamics speakers (3 Idmax Subs, IDQ midbass in the rear doors, 8in ID subs in the front doors, CD2 Comps Horns, and XS65 midrange drivers in my kick panels). My set up is 100% active with no passive crossovers. Now that you have a basic understanding of my set up, here is my honest opinion of these drivers. I feel that they sounded as good as my previous 6.5in drivers (the old Image Dynamics CX62). Unfortunately they did not perform as well at loud volumes played over extended periods of time. I usually play my stereo system at car shows for brief periods of time ( 30 - 45 min) at moderate to high levels. Unfortunately, the XS's voice coils overheated during one of my stereo demonstrations. The Image dynamics soft dome tweeters didn't hold up very well either. So here is my recommendation, if you are looking for a great sounding pair of 6.5in drivers, the XS65s are great provided you are not playing them at very loud volumes for any extended period of time. Otherwise I would have to say that the old school CX62s are a better choice for prolonged loud music. Honestly given my set up I could not hear a difference between the two drivers (XS and the old CX62). So given my current knowledge I would prefer to use the CX62 due to the fact that I never had any problems with them. Hope this review has helped someone.

Powerful neo midbass driver.

March 23, 2012

Needed another one for my XS65 set. These mid bass drivers are fantastic. Not much to say except that they sound great and play very loud with issue.
