Hard as Rock Yet Eloquent as Ivory

Speakers are extremely important when it comes to the recreation of high quality sound from CDs, MP3s, radio signals and more. MB Quart engineers built the all new Onyx series speakers from the ground up to be an affordable speaker with the audiophile and performance enthusiast in mind. This series is composed of value-packed 2-way and 3-way speakers that are constructed of the same superior technology in MB Quarts other lines. All Onyx Speakers come elegantly designed with a glossy black piano finish woofer cone and rubber surround. The stamped steel basket touts black high-gloss paint to accent the polypropylene woofer cone and contrasts well with the red progressive cotton spider. Matching these speakers perfectly the line of Onyx Amplifiers shows off the same piano black finish applied to their heatsinks and outer casing. No need to find a match maker, itís already been made.

You wonít find a lack of features at this price point. Onyx series speakers come equipped with 30mm WideSphere titanium dome tweeter with matching piano gloss finish. The piano black polypropylene cone is suspended by a rubber surround that allows rapid movement to hit all notes. The crossover system has been designed to filter out unwanted frequencies and supply the tweeter and midrange with the power they desire. Tweeter attenuation on the crossover allows 0db, -3db and -6db steps so you can tune your system the way your ears want to hear it. Top it off with a black smoked crossover case to continue with the sophisticated theme and you have yourself Onyx series speakers.

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 Component System
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.
Inverted 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.

Titanium
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.
Polypropylene
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".
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).
40 - 32,000 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.

No
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches, required to contain the speaker.
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

March 19, 2013

Bought these about 6 months ago now to replace the blown speakers that were in my car when I purchased it. Installed everything myself, whhich was reletively simple. They're a definite improvement on what I previously had in there. I would recommend these as they provide a wide range of crystal clear sound. I'm sure having a sub would add to that effect, but for me it was not necessary.

I got them for the back doors on my TUNDRA DC. Speakers put out good mids and highs. The bass is ok, you will need to power them with an amp. Sound is so much better than stock speakers.

Sounds Good in My Cube

April 12, 2012

I couldn't find any reviews on this product but I purchased them anyway because MB Quarts were awesome when I was in high school. I understand another company bought MB Quart and they are now supposed to be garbage. The people saying this have never owned this product and should not voice their opinions. After a break-in period they are jamming in my Cube. Tweeters are extremely loud and clear and bass is perfect.

real good speakers

April 6, 2012

I just changed my hifonics zxi 6.5c components to the onx 216s and I am very surprised. I know that the hifonics are very loud and crisp. That is why I bought them but I decided that I want to have better sound quality so it's the quarts, even if they are not as loud. I am happy to say that they are way better as far as sound quality goes and also surprised that they were louder than the Hifonics. Wow. I have run mb quarts in the past when they were made in Germany but this is my first set since they are made by maxsonics. They still have that quality sound that they were famous for. I am very happy with this product and will buy more mb quarts in the future.

Bought two pairs of these to replace the dull sounds coming from my boat. Got a great deal and was pleasantly surprised by the great sounds the produce. They definitely are alot louder and alot cleaner than the kenwood coaxial speakers they replaced. Would definitely recommend them to anyone. Great lake tunes!!!

Installed 2 sets of these in my 2008 GMC. I am powering them with a kicke IX 500.4 and they blow the factory Bose out of the water. I run the tweeters at -3db and they blend nicely with the woofers. It may take a week or two for them to break in, but they are worth the wait. When properly installed and allowed time to break in they are very well defined. I have been running these for 8 months now.

Awesome sound at an awesome price

January 18, 2012

Installed this MB Quart ONX216 component system into my 2005 Mazda 6 GT. Already having the Bose package stereo in my car I was skeptical if these speakers would be a major upgrade. After listening to them for several days with all different types of music ROCK, RAP, ALTERNATIVE, CLASSICAL, POP, ETC. All I can say is WOW!!! The 6.5" driver puts out so much bass (Xmax heaven LOL) that my doors rattle. The mid bass is tight, accurate and brings a punch I haven't heard in many of my other high end name brand speakers. The tweeters absolutely shine. The widesphere design images so nicely in my car even sitting in the back seat these tweeters sound amazing. While another reviewer made a comment to the crossover being built cheaply my comment is GIVE ME A BREAK. They are sturdy and do their job correctly/accurately. These tweeter sound great even at their bottom end frequency. For all the audiophiles out there the tweater and driver blend beautifully together and I give the engineers at MB Quart credit for pairing these woofer/tweeters together as they compliment one another well. I set the crossover at 0db and if anything have turned the treble up +1 from the head unit to get more highs they sound so fantastic. This is one excellent buy for anyone wanting to upgrade their sound without breaking the bank. My review for this unit is also using the stock Bose head unit and amp. I will be installing my MB Quart ONYX 4 channel 60 watts per channel at 4ohms amp this weekend and will be back with another review but from what I'm hearing now the MB Quart amp can only make it sound better. I recommend everyone to buy these before the price goes up because I would pay twice as much if needed for this product!!!

April 9, 2011

Bought these to replace my stock speakers in my 2004 Chevy Silverado. A little disapointed in the bass that these things produce. Didn't notice a huge difference going from stock to these, but the difference is there. If you have the money, I would put an amp to these and id bet they would shine. I only have 22 Watts going to them through my Pioneer DVD player and they have a good solid clean sound. just not a whole lot of bass. Good all around speakers.
