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.
Balanced 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.
Carbon Mica
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-Coated Cloth
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.
200 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.
27 watts
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.
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.
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.
4-9/16" x 4-9/16" 
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.

Overall For The Price You Can't Go Wrong (Part 2)

January 18, 2012

If you read my other review on the JVC CS-V6937 you should have a good Idea in what im going to say about these. With the back 6X9's, these bad boys in the front and having all this powered by my JVC Arsenal KD-A815 deck considered I got my deck at the local pawn shop and these two speakers (the 4 1/2 and 6X9's) for a total of 69.00 with free shipping. I couldn't be any happier with the system I have now in my car. Overall the sound quality with having stock tweeters already in my car on the dash and having the 2 way and 3 way speaker around the rest of the car really delivers (all Hz frequencies) of sound all the way around the cabin of the car. All of my guy friends (and lady friends) ;) think i own a multiple hundred dollar system and when the chance comes if they option to ride in mine or some else's ride rises, most of the time they come with me. The set up I have I would recommend to any one that's either tight on cash or simply wants to just upgrade the sound quality greatly and not put a huge dent in their wallet in doing so. These speakers rock and for the price you can't go wrong at all.

Got these for a friends car that had tired old factory speakers failing her. Put these in, and they work perfectly. We all know that feeling after you hook them up and turn the radio on, its the real test, and these passed with flying colors. Perfect for running off the deck power. Great sound for 5-1/4's.

OK for the price

January 31, 2013

First off, keep in mind that these are some very inexpensive speakers, so I guess you can't expect a whole lot. I ordered these mostly because at the time I had a JVC head unit and a set of JVC DRVN CS-G1200 subs and these matched perfectly and look really sweet (especially with the grills on. I didn't use my stock grills with these, I used the JVC grills). After I got them in, I was a little impressed actually, these will handle a decent amount of power and put out acceptable volume. They sound very clear, definitely better than the stock speakers of my 98 Jeep Cherokee Sport. The only thing I don't like is they can't handle bass. But hey the cones are like 5 inches in diameter and they don't have much xmax so what can you expect. In my case I don't care that they can't handle bass cause I got my front speakers and a set of subs. What I ended up doing was putting in a set of bass blockers I got for like 6 bucks new. I really recommend planning on doing that, cause now they have great clarity yet I can crank the volume AND I'm free to turn up the bass on my EQ to let my front speakers and subs crank out the bass. Even if you don't have subs though, these are still great speakers for your car.

I would buy these again because they look sweet, match any color scheme, have great clarity and decent volume. I would of course recommend them to my friends as well. Just remember to spend the extra 6 bucks on bass blockers (if you can install speakers then you can install bass blockers as long as you have basic soldering skills). I don't think any other speakers brand new in this price range will sound any better, so I would not shy away from these.

I no longer have the JVC subs, I wanted to see what other brands sounded like, but I will be keeping these speakers.
