Speaker Specifications

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" (also mounts in 6-3/4" w/ included brackets)
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.

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.
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.
160 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.
30 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".
91 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).
35 - 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.
1-11/16"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5" x 5" 
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

Great Speakers

May 27, 2010

I bought these speakers as stock upgrades for my Accord and to get highs and mids with enough volume to be heard through the pounding of my Kicker L5 Solo Baric without distorting, and they've turned out to be an excellent buy. You really can't beat the price, believe me, I looked around at so many speakers and these were my pick in the end. The bass is lacking though and will distort if you try to turn it up with lots of bass, but if you have a sub, then it'll be fine. If I turn the bass on the headunit down (I don't have these amped), I can crank the volume literally to the max and I will get zero distortion. The highs and mids are awesome. Definitely a good choice.

May 16, 2009

Bought these to put in the rear doors of my suburban. These speakers are worth the 30 bucks, they sound so much better than stock speakers. the tweeters put out a nice clear sound and the mids are good but bass is lacking, but what do you expect from $30 speakers. Well worth the money.

I'd recommend these to anybody who's looking to upgrade their stock speakers. The highs are really loud for this price range, the mids are not bad as well. I bought the harness and these are going in the front doors of my Nissan Sentra. I have Kenwood 6.5's in my back dash. I'll buy from Sonic Electronix again.

Great Speakers

September 16, 2008

I put two of these in my rear deck, and two of the 5 1/4" in my front doors. These sound so perfect! Even at max volumes, they still produce amazing sound with no distortion! They don't have too much low end power, but since most people have subs, it shouldn't matter too much. Great speakers!

Great speakers, Great price, Awesome Value

July 10, 2008

I bought 2 sets of these and installed them in my tacoma. The speakers are a night and day difference from stock they sound awesome and have crisp clear sound. The bass is good but its hard to tell considering I have 2 10" subs. Very happy with the product and for $30 you can't beat them.

My music of choice is techno and these speakers are great for it. These can get all the way up to the piercing highs and do it with volume, while still providing great mids with little distortion the whole way through. Can handle power like champs and perform better than expected for the price.

Clear sound for a cheap price

February 4, 2008

If your wanting to go clear and not get to pricey then these are what you want. There is no distortion when the volume is all the way up. I mean were dealing with 6 1/2's here there is no need to go to all out and thats y i choose to buy these, a cheap speaker made by a quality company.

Big bang for a little buck

December 17, 2007

I put these in my front doors of my 03 Eclipse and they pump out constant crystal clear sound. The bass is lacking but go figure from such a small speaker. My 19 watt RMS deck can make these things LOUD with little distortion at the max volume. Only thing bad I can think of is that the surrounds are treated paper and mine came slightly torn, but a little superglue fixed that. For a great brand at a very nice price for a stock upgrade, this is awesome.

clear, crisp sound

October 11, 2007

These speakers are really good for the cost. I have four of these in my 1995 camaro and they give out consistant crystal clear sound. These speakers put out very little bass so they aren't good for hip-hop or rap unless you have subs that make up for the lack of bass.

July 13, 2007

Ok these speakers have good highs, but no bass. I had some sony's they were half blown and sounded better, but they are nicer. For the money these are a great speaker. Pioneer makes a great product, but i like their headunits more than the speakers or subs. I am putting a 3 for durability because i have not used them long.

Just picked up these speakers a couple of days ago and installed them into my car and they sound great. For the price that you pay for them you would not think the sound would be that good. I would recommend these speakers to anyone on a budget looking to upgrade from stock speakers.

When I first bought these speakers I was very unsure about there performance. I later found out after a year of using these speaker that they handle their rms and probably more. These speakers put very low distortion. Great speakers if up dont want to us a amp. Sound quality is good.
