Priced Per Complete Component System: 2 midwoofers, 2 tweeters and 2 crossover networks.

Speaker Specifications

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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
360 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.
120 watts
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).
55 - 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.

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.
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.
5-3/8" x 5-3/8" 
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.
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.

Great Speaker, Harsh Tweeter.

December 28, 2011

I bought these for my subaru forester and I love them. I have the tweeter mounted off axis, and them attenuated at the -6db setting and my eq cut -2db at 12khz because the tweeters are very, very sharp. They don't sound bad, but honestly I think because the woofers are power hungry (I am giving each side 150 watts RMS via a pioneer premier amp) the tweeters end up getting a lot of power. Just beware of the fact that the tweeters are very loud, maybe not a good choice for a small car or firing towards glass. Also, the crossover electronics are great, but the covers SUCK. I ended up duct taping mine shut. That's why 3 stars on ease of use.

best components

May 23, 2012

These components sound great, but they make sure you got power for them. They need at least 75 Watts RMS, heres is a short video of them this with only 50 watts rms. later I will update the video with a new amp powering them. 4 stars on ease of use for crossover covers

Amazing Product!

December 6, 2011

Wow! They sound better than expected. Need some time to break in just like all other speakers but they are just crystal clear and perfect. The build quality is exceptional! I bought a component set of Pioneer speakers and they were cheap plastic crap compared to these. Very rigid and amazing sound!

Exceeded my expections

June 25, 2011

Just replaced MTX 6001s in an 07 Silverado, difference is night and day. Quality kit. Tweeters can be attached to midbass or separate
Mine were RB and the tweeters are 20mm not 38 as noted, who cares, they sound awsome, like a good silk dome should. Midbass is tight and vocals are open and natural sounding. Hooked up to an AVH-3300, and a Kole audio 4ch amp 85 RMS /ch, all bought here and delivered to Canada quickly and reasonably priced. Yeah Sonic !!

Great for the price!

July 16, 2012

I installed these guys with a pair of matching Vibe 6x9s. Never used Vibe before (am a big fan of JBL), but the price was right, and I decided to take the plunge and try something new. Great set for the price. As someone else mentioned, the tweeter seems to be a little more vocal than the woofer (highs are a little harsh), but overall a great little set, and way better than the stock speakers they replaced in my car.

Vibe strikes agian!

June 6, 2012

I have to say for a company i haven't heard about in ages they still make a some quality products you do have to pay a lil more for the better Built stuff but man is it worth it.

I installed these i have 4channel amp at 100w per channel to each set of these and they just blow my mind how clear they are they are hitting just the right spot for my budget system.

great quality

December 26, 2011

Purchase Vibe. These componets are great the construction is aweasome and the crossovers are top quality, you will not find a better product in this price range. I'm running 2 sets in a crew cab silverado with a memphis belle powering them no complaints except they do stress a little with lots of drum mids, ie Tool. but they are very efficient and can handle as little as 50 watts. If you purchase vibe you wont be sorry. Even my dad has all Vibe in his classic Camaro and he loves them.

what setting should the crossover be set at . with black air 6 speakers and black air 4 speakers

set at o or 3 or 6?
Roystone 111 on Dec 22, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,

If there was a concrete setting that the crossover "should" be set to, it would be permanently set to that. The fact that you have the OPTION means its all up to the listener; You. You choose which set you want to boost the 3db/6db . Do a bit of homework on "Staging" and figure out which application works best for YOUR preference. There isn't a "Right Way", just YOUR way.
