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.
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.
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.

Silk
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.
Black Silk Polyester
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.
125 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.
70 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).
55 - 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
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.
2-1/2"
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.
2-5/8"
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.
Yes

For the price worth it.

February 16, 2012

I decided to go all out on my current system and hook it up completely. An re audio sx 18, 8 (yes count them 2 in each door) re audio re65frs, and 4 re audio tweeters ran off the headunit and a hifonics zeus amp. These speakers are loud and can get a bit ear piercing then again with 8 they better. Well... 6 to be exact I think i got a bad batch of speakers because two of them won't take any form of power, they don't move at all. I checked them on a volt meter and they had no ohm load just an open circuit. I think they are bad so needless to say I gotta send them in. Otherwise great products!

Excellent Value

November 28, 2011

These speakers offer fantastic smooth highs and clear mids. After installing I could hear many details of my favorite songs that were missing with my factory speakers. Comparing these to my MB Quart 6 1/2's, from my previous car, I do not feel like I am missing anything. Infact, I enjoy the highs personally over the shrill of the titanium tweeters in the MB's. I'm only running these off my below average Kenwood headunit and was very satisfied that I did not lose any volume over stock and actually experienced ~3db increase. I would obviously not buy these speakers for increased bass output, but I wouldn't recommend any 6 1/2 for bass. No better value on the market in my personal opinion.

Sounds great, but not for long

September 13, 2011

These things are just downright loud! I love them and they have an amazing response. However, do not buy these if they are going into your rear deck uncovered. The sun deteriorates the poly cone and will make it crack and fall apart! If you are putting these in your doors, your rear deck has a cover for the speakers, or you have some heavy tint on your back window, then i'd say you are safe. Don't take the chance otherwise and get something more durable.

Amazing quality for the price

April 26, 2011

These speakers are amazing. The only thing that could make them the better would be to make the tweeter be able to swivel. More than enough wiring. Speaker grill is sturdy and wont warp over time. Made of high quality materials and is built rock solid. I listen to techno, dubstep, rap, rock and some country and these speakers plays them all amazingly. They played all of the listed genres crisp, accurate, clean and had plenty of bass. Would buy over and over again!

I've heard plenty of speakers before, and this has the best sq out of all of them. it hits lows well, but has a very crisp mid range and clear highs. it also has very good power handling. Get them!

Just got em.

November 19, 2010

Haven't got them installed yet, but my first impressions are that they look and feel very solidly built. I am going to be installing them in the rear doors of my 2010 cube driven by a kenwood 60w rms amp. I am probably gonna use them plain ole at first but I have few spare sets of crossovers i may experiment. I can't rate durability just yet but ill be back on. stay tuned.
