Speaker Specifications

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.
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.

Mylar
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.
Mica Injected Polypropylene (MIPP)
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.
Foam
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.
100 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".
88 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).
57 - 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.
2-11/16"
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.
2-9/16"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5-3/32" x 7-11/32" 
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

Terrific...Absolutely wonderful!

February 28, 2013

I installed these in my Ford Explorer. I run with with an MTX 4-channel amp. They are loud and sound amazing! I turned off the subwoofer, turned up the bass, and these boom surprisingly loud! Very much acceptable in case you don't have room for a sub.

Tough as Nails

January 28, 2013

Absolutely amazing for the price. I have owned 2 pairs of these for my F-150 for a year and a month now. I have absolutely beat the crap out of them for the entire time that i've had them on a stock, distorting radio and finally wised up and got a Sony GT-57 and put it in. And boy those things were way happier with the subs and the high pass filter. But I will say this, they have been wet MULTIPLE times, and they still work just like a pulled them out of the box. Hope the Punches are as tough as these, about to replace them. AMAZINZG sound quality and durability for the price.

Rockford Fosgate R1682 For Ford Focus ZX3

September 27, 2012

I got these speakers because my other order got back ordered and they recommended theses. Sure they where more expensive than the other ones but its worth it. I got them for my 2001 Ford Focus ZX3 hatchback, if you put them in the back you might not notice much of a difference when using the radio but if you use an iPod or CD you can notice them.

Pretty Good

January 6, 2012

I installed these on my 03 Mustang because when I bought the car the previous owner had some awful speakers currently in the car (worst then stock even). I wasn't looking for anything crazy, just something that sounded decent, and that is pretty much what I got. Overall, I am pretty pleased with the speakers, however I would probably not buy them again. Unless you are just looking for something "decent" to just get by with, I would probably recommend something else more powerful. I was just getting a bunch of other stuff at the same time for my car and I figured these would be fine for now (I rather spend money on an engine than on the audio). On a positive note, the mids and highs on these speakers are pretty good and the speakers themselves get pretty loud. However, I was disappointed in the lack of bass. It is virtually not there. So unless you already have a sub to make up for the lack of bass then i would probably advise getting a more powerful speaker. I just bout a Kicker PT10 bass station so now I am happier with my system overall. On a side note, these were installed in my doors and on my rear deck; I did not amp these speakers; and they were paired with a Clarion Double-Din that I also bought from this site. If I replaced anything in the future, it would probably just be the deck speakers as I feel the doors are ok the way they are, however the deck should have a bit more bass.

Great Sound

December 19, 2011

I am very happy with the fit and sound of these prime series speakers. Provide a crisp sound and surprisingly a good amount of bass. I am very pleased with the quality. Came with speaker connections and wire also mounting screws and clips. I do wish they would have included some speaker grills but overall could not beat the price.

not too great

November 16, 2011

I installed them and they were ok. The bass sucked and the highs got distorted quickly off of head unit. So far the Stock speakers handle better, im buying an Amp to see if it will help with the bass and distortion.

I was not impressed with these at first until i adjusted my input levels on my kenwood amplifier and now they great. They put out a very clean midrange sound comparable to what you would expect from a 120$ pair.
