VAST Surround Speakers

The Vertical Attach Surround technique will increases a speaker’s cone area by up to 25%. Rockford Fosgate’s surround technique, VAST, provides a large increase in the speakers effective radiating cone area without complicated installation issues. This design eliminates the large glued surface area around the rim of the speaker, which allows the surround to be shifted for increased cone area. Both efficiency and maximum output capabilities are dramatically improved.

Multi-OEM Adapter

The Multi-OEM Adapter plate allows round component or full-range speakers to fit in many OEM openings. This allows the speaker to fit more vehicles. Using a uniquely designed adapter plate, special tabs can be removed to help with installation of circular speakers in 4" x 6", 5" x 7" or 6" x 9" OEM openings. The adapter also allows a 5" x 7" to fit a 6" x 8" opening.

Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Punch (Rockford Fosgate)
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 Component System
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.
1"
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.
Injection Molded Polypropylene (IMPP)
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
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.
120 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.
60 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".
87 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).
60 - 22000 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.

Yes
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.
1-7/8"
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.
2-3/16"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5-1/16" x 5-1/16" 
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.
Yes

P165-S

September 18, 2013

Very nice speakers with great sound quality that handles a good amount of bass for a door speaker just running off the deck. given amplification they probably sound even better. RF usually makes great products and these live up to the reputation. cant say for the tweeters as i haven't hooked them up yet.

disappointed

August 29, 2013

Bought these components to replace some infinity coaxials. In my opinion I downgraded. The tweeters are loud and clear at low and high levels, witch its good. The mid high its clear at low volume but distorts at higher levels. Notice how I said mid high, the speaker does not produce much of a mid low bass, its ok for me I got some 12's to take care of the lower frequencies but if buying to replace stock speakers without a sub I wouldn't recommend them. By the way I'm powering them with a fosgate power t400.4 amp, so I know I got enough power going to them.

Pleasantly surprised

August 20, 2014

Easy to install, but a few details make the difference. I was getting some distortion, and found it was flaws in the music source I've never heard. I was also somewhat concerned about the lack of volume with some music sources. However: Sound-proofing the doors and moving the tweeters to ear-height up the A-columns makes these babies ring!! I'm really surprised for an affordable entry. I actually killed my rear fill-in speakers because they were muddy in comparison. I'm running these off a P400 with two P3's on a 1200D.

Good Set

June 9, 2014

As for Sound Quality, these things are definitely worth 100$. Tweeters are a bit harsh though, but i love the integrated crossover. Makes things a LOT easier to install. I did however accidentally pull out the wire from the tweeter and had to use my own speaker wire.

second time ordering these

April 6, 2014

I had these in a tacoma and then ordered a second set for my now current 4runner, replaced factory tweeter/woofer setup with the P165-s and powered by an alpine power pack, these speakers get loud! and clear! defintely a great basic component set, internal crossovers kept installation simple,

Awesome!

May 21, 2013

I bought this and fell in love with them to begin with. The mids and highs are so clear through the speakers and you can hear every note. I love the concealed crossover because I didn't really have anywhere to put one. I'm currently running them off of my head unit so there's not much bass, but I have a Fi Q 15 to take care of that. All in all a great product for the price.

Clear high and mids, lacks bass

December 9, 2012

I have had these for over a week now and I can say that I am impressed on how much cleaner everything sounds. Currently I am only running them off my headunit. It has really good mids and highs but lacks bass. But I have two CVR 12's so that does not bother me at all. The only problem I had was I had to re solder one of the tweeters because the wire was loose and there was a lot of static.

The doors in your car or truck might not have the ability to give the frequency range you want. If i were you, id check to see if your doors are resonating at lower tones.

Why did you choose this?

the speakers I wanted are on back order and these seemed to be the next decision I would make. and these speakers don't use a cross over box so that would make installation a little bit easier

Looking for 6.5 component speakers for a 2002 silverado Can u help?
A shopper on Aug 26, 2014
Best Answer: Research says front doors' speakers for the 2002 Silverado are 6.75" but fit 6.5" just fine. Rears are 4" x 6" (if you have an extended cab). For installing the component tweeter grab yourself a drill with a hole saw bit for the appropriate diameter and find a deep enough area to house the tweeter. You'll have to remove a panel or two to do this. If drilling sounds too scary to do yourself to your own vehicle, hire a local car audio specialist.

Have fun, these speakers added a lot of quality to my ride.
