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.
3-way Component Speakers
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.

Aluminum
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.
Kevlar Reinforced Pulp (Paper)
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
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.
100 watts
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).
60 - 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.
3 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.
2-5/8"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches, required to contain the speaker.
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5-7/8" x 5-7/8" 
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.
Yes

Looks like quality, built with none.

October 16, 2013

I purchased these speakers through a different account from sonic electronix about two years ago. In that amount of time I have had these speakers replaced three times. For pretty much the same issue. The 6 & 1/2" speakers begin to get this rattling effect/noise even when playing any amount of bass at all. Cannot explain how loud this rattling is. If you sit in the back of my car when these played it was unbearable. The mid drivers and tweeters are perfect though. Good quality and look and sound good as well. So now we get to why I am finally posting this negative review, for the fourth time now these speakers are not only blown out and rattling but one of the crossovers is not allowing power through to the 6 & 1/2" speaker when in three way mode. It will only work in two way mode. Noticed this when I saw the speaker was barely producing any noise then noticed it was barely moving. Hooked up two other speakers, still the same. Pushed the button for two way and then with a small wire adjustment on the crossover to supply power it works flawlessly but rattles like a lot. Other speakers do not rattle at all. The first time I sent these back the cone in the center came loose on both and would spin freely, rattled like crazy. Second time one speaker came in packing with hole in rubber seal. Third time one speaker came with an extremely loose tab for positive and negative connections on speaker, which I broke when I went to tighten down the negative wire. Fourth time which is current, both speakers just rattle. I think it is the coil in the inside, have no way of telling though. So bad that I have removed them and have no rear speakers. One million times better in sound quality now. I have never owned such terrible speakers nor ever had to return speakers like I have had to with these. I am dumb founded by the amount of problems I have had with them. On a personal note Sonic electronix has always been very helpful and accepted my returns are been very prompt with getting a replacement out to me. So thank you. The other thing is I barely listen to music at all. When I do it is usually classic orchestra music and I want it to sound good. I love the sounds of the car more than anything but on long drives I want to be able to relax and listen to something enjoyable. My stock speakers were blown out so I thought I would give these a try because they look so appealing. They definitely sound more clear with the added tweeter and mid driver but the the large speakers have serious build quality issues, and now i am starting to think the crossovers are in need in of quality checks as well. I highly recommend to everyone to pass on these and purchase something from a reputable name like boston accoustics, rockfard fosgate, re audio, etc.. These will give you way to many issues. I am out of warranty now so I cannot return these for anything so that is annoying.I most likely would have had more than three returns if I used these speakers more and gave them a more standard break in period. If I had to guess I would say that I got six to eight hours between the two sets before the rattling started. For me that is about 5-6 months of listening time. I almost never write reviews but I have just had it with these speakers.
