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.

Priced Per Pair

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.
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
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.
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".
89 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

I installed these in the back of my '08 tundra. They sound great. I don't have much experience with car speakers...heard some Bose and Sony's buts thats about it. Always heard that MB Quart is the best or "was" before the Maxxsonics takeover. I am very pleased with the quality and the price. I listen to a little bit of everything, but these speakers have good highs for coaxials and they have some bass to them as well. I am impressed and getting the MB Quart PVI216 components to compliment them. O yea, I have a MB Quart DSC480 pushing them as well, so I am sure that helps. I gave it a 4 on durability because the screwdriver slipped of the screwhead and put a tiny slit in the rubber on the outside of the cone **Doh**. My fault of course but the rubber seemed to be a little thin. Ease of Use got a 4 because the + / - labels were very hard to see, but they are there. Other than that little picky stuff, good speakers for the $$$.

Good Quality speaker

September 18, 2013

If you want a good quality speaker for a reasonable price, this is it. I installed a set of components and a set of these coaxial speakers in my 2003 Chevy 2500 crew cab. they sound amazing. I have not run them on factory radio power though. I am using a Rockford Fosgate amplifier to drive them. Only thing is the ONX116 speakers are too deep for a Chevy crew cab, I have to make a spacer to fit between the door and the speaker to allow the rear window to go down all the way. But as far as sound I would recommend these to anyone.

good speaker

May 5, 2012

I got them for the front doors on my TUNDRA DC. Good mids and highs bass is ok. You will need an amp to power them. The tweeter sticks too far, it is a really tight fit, tweeter is right at the door panel.

Buy these now

April 12, 2012

I couldn't find any reviews on this product but I purchased them anyway because MB Quarts were the s**t 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. Clear and rocking sound. Great product!

Top quality at an affordable price

July 31, 2011

Highly recommend. My first car in 1986 had all MB Quart speakers in it and they lasted until I sold the vehicle in 1994. Excellent build quality and the sound quality is top of the line. I actually put this in my boat under the dash facing to the rear. Only have a head unit pushing them and it sounds great. A few people out on the river have asked about my system and can't believe the sound coming from the MB Quarts.

Great little speakers for the price wo amp

May 19, 2011

If you want a replacement for your stock speakers but don't want to run a separate amp for them this is a great choice. Preferably have a high wattage aftermarket deck installed to get the most out of them but they have a great clean and clear sound, almost impossible to blow, look great. Unfortunately the holes didnt line up with my originals so I had to redrill some but other then that I like them.
