Slick Acoustic Replication

Finding the joining point for performance and price just got a little bit easier the VIBE Audio SLICK 69.3 speakers. Designed and created by the British audio manufacturer, these speakers utilize some of the latest in speaker technology to create smooth audio reproduction without a hefty price tag. These Slick speakers use a Y30 rated magnet to assist in the power handling and an alloy torsion basket that provides more rigidity and support for all the moving parts inside the speaker. A single spider suspension system controls the woofer cone and helps keeps it’s movement linear during use. On the surface of the speaker is an injection molded polypropylene cone (IMPP) that creates fluid and even acoustic replication, as well as smooth, low bass. A PEI tweeter will please any listener by offering an extended high frequency response.

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" x 9"
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
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 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.

PEI (Polyetherimide)
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.
480 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.
160 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".
93 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).
50 - 25,000 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.
2-15/16"
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.
8-11/16 x 5-15/16 
Hi-Res Audio Compatible
This feature refers to if the product is capable of Hi-Res Audio (HRA) playback.
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
Number of Speakers
This is the number of speaker that is included in the package. Each purchase will result in receiving the number of speakers indicated here. Please note that some items will have multiple woofers in the same enclosure. For sets of component speakers, this number will refer to the number of sets of speakers (For example, 2 would indicate the purchase includes 2 woofers and 2 tweeters).

Please refer to the product image and description for further details about the speaker.

I'm going to tell you guys right now, even though there is not much when it comes to reviews on Vibe products, they are high-class!!! I was skeptical because I couldn't find much on them. Although, after trying them, these 6x9"s are absolutely phenomenal, if you push them with the recommended power. I tried with just the head-unit at first, and they were good. But then I hooked them up to an amp... It sounded AWESOME!!! I have 2 of these in my gf's 1973 Impala with 80w RMS running them, and they sound like 2 10" subs, and the highs will make your ears bleed!!! Thumbs up to VIBE!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Bought these 6x9s when they were on sale for around 40 because they could handle the amount of wattage my 2 channel amp puts out. They sound great. I put them in some 6x9 boxes and installed it in a Jeep Wrangler. Great sound, very loud too. I highly recommend these speakers.

One worked great!

June 13, 2012

The shipment box was fine, but the actual box it's self that the speakers came in was damaged, Like it was dropped on the corner, But from the appearance it didn't look harmful. I hooked the first one up on my test bench, sounded fantastic, definitively one of the better 6x9's I've heard. Clean, loud and good bass response.

I like the grill design and how its held to the basket by a rubber surround.

Then the second one. Sounded great before the bass happened. Then it was nothing but crackling. This saddened me slightly. Quite positive it was a manufacture defect. Because the D.O.A. one was in the un-damaged side of the packaging.

I would definitely recommend these from what I've experienced so far minus the defective one.

Buy them you'll love them.

July 31, 2011

I have a set. They are rated 500 watts each. So you must have a serious amp to drive them. A regular car receiver will not do it. I matched mine with a Lanzer, Max Pro 2000 watt 2 channel amp. With ported 6X9 boxes bought from Sonic. Do not worry about the wattage. These speakers will take anything this amp can throw at them. Provided you do like me, and do not run the gain up on the amplifier. I run mine "all the way down". I simply like the amp head room. I supply double power to every speaker I drive. It produces crystal clear clarity even in a ported box. Most people's system's cannot compete with the clarity of system's that I build. These are no exception. Massive Mid Bass. Find out what your Sub has been denying you. My sub is set at 60 HZ and is clean. with these added 6x9's it sounds as if I added two other subs to the system, Due to the Mid Base Response of these 6x9's. When I say Massive Mid Base, I mean Massive! I am going to add another set, and amp to my Freightliner Truck. To give you an idea of the mid base. The sub can't even compete with one of these 6x9"s for the DB gain, of mid base added by one speaker. And I have a 12" Sony Sub that hit's like a Freight Train. People can't belive I only have one sub in the truck.

I was skeptical to purchase these since they are priced ridiculously low for the amount of power they are said to handle but WOW. Very impressed.
I have kicker ks 6x9's also running on a 600w 4 channel amp and they keep up with clarity and bass response. 5 stars all the way!!!
I can see VIBE Audio going a long way!!
