Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Prime (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.
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.
1/2"
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.

Silk
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.
90 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.
45 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).
52 - 20000 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.
2-3/16"
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.
2-5/16"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5-1/2" x 5-1/2" 
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.

full mids and highs

December 20, 2013

These three ways are solid, especially for the price. Mids and highs are perfect, not too pingy like mbquarts, but still full. I have yet to get distortion at high volumes so I feel they would do well in a component/amped set up. Cant comment on there low end response but specs say they can go pretty low. Packaging was protective and they came with plenty of speaker wire and mounting brackets. Overall awesome for any set up. I would recommend to anyone looking for full range door speakers.

December 30, 2014

I installed them in a 2001 Honda CR-V. Had to do a little work to install them but worth it. These speakers sounds great with a stock head unit in this car. I put them front and rear of this car and would do it again. The price on the speakers are a great value.

The brand name for the price sold it for me!

February 12, 2015

I have worked with Rockford Fosgate equipment before. It is really top notch stuff. When I saw that these speakers were listed for the price, I couldn't stop myself from buying them. The Rockford equipment I've worked with before has amazing sound, great quality, very durable, and has great range. These speakers are no different. They have a range that's a bit on the high side compared to my stock speakers. This actually worked out for me because my stock speakers had a lower range which made the bass a bit overzealous. Couldn't have bought a better set of speakers.

Well first thing these are the best speakers to run off your deck!!! They are louder and crisper and if installed right they give excellent bass!!! I have a 2002 Subaru Legacy GT Limited and I needed to to some custom fitting due to the bracket was too small for the speaker to sit flush... Used a dremel to make the speaker for and about an hour later and a week to allow the break in period to settle, I was blown away!!! Buy these

Rockford R165X3'S!!!!!

September 19, 2013

I would highly recommend these speakers for anyone who is on a budget and wants some serious sound. I put these in a customers truck and all I could say was wow. Clarity was beyond amazing with or without the amp. In my opinion they sound better then the Boston acoustic's I have in my personal truck. I have always been a huge fan of Rockford Fosgate equipment and have never had a problem with any of the items I've purchased in the past. Keep up the great work Team Rockford!!! Im a buyer for life!!!

March 23, 2015

I was impressed as soon as i opened the package. The speakers looked good online, but you never know until you start messing around with them. They are a nicely weighted not too heavy n not to light. The polypropylene cones have a cool look to them. They were easy to install, dramatically increasing the bass and overall sound quality to my factory head unit (and its a great way to stay in shape). I love Rockford products because they make quality products. These went into a 2000 Dodge Dakota.

r165x3 vs. r165

April 2, 2013

Both are good value for the money. I have these in my daughters Corolla and the 2way in my car. Both have low level rms wattage so an after market head unit will make either sound quite nice, but there is a difference the 2nd tweeter makes. I think it is worth the extra coin for the better sound quality you get. I would get the Punch or Power series if you plan to amplify and want deeper bass out of the 6.5" size speakers.

Darn Good Speakers

November 27, 2013

I've always been curious about whats the difference with Rockford Fosgates different series. Prime, Punch and Power. Truth is their Power output and when it comes down to what ever power you're running there's certain materials to keep your system clean. Rockford does that with these hands down and for the person wanting clarity and not wanting to buy an amp these do the trick. Of course if you want the little extra bang in your system Rockford gives you the extra watts to do so. Overall GREAT PRODUCT and PRICE these won't let you down trust the Brand they're Grear.

November 20, 2015

For the price point, I don't see how you can get much better. Very high quality out of the box, and sound amazing. Beware, though, because the 6.5" is really a 6.75". I had to modify my adapters on the front doors to get them to work, but it was worth it. But in the quarter panel, they just went right into the stock location. I have 2 pairs powered by a Rockford Fosgate R250x4 and these things get loud! It actually gets to a point to where you can't talk in my car or hear anything around the car! Its loud enough for daily driving, thats for sure.

Recently had these nstalled in my 2008 Kia Spectra, Along with a new JVC radio, this was total package upgrade to what was stock in the car. The car sounds great now.
The music in my car is crisp and the entire audible audio range is represented well. I wasn't looking to have earth shattering bass but my bass heavy tunes sound great. Kicks sound punchy, and distinct from lower mids like pianos, synths, and basses. I'm really happy with four of these in the car.

Wanted to do an overhaul on my 2008 Tacoma Speakers and my sound engineer friend of mine suggested Rockford Fosgates. Super excited to give them a try and boost the audio quality in my truck.

I have owned these before, they are great ! Good Price !

Great quality speakers. Has everything I need for my sound to be top notch.
David A on Mar 28, 2016
My family has always used and enjoyed the Rockford Fosgate brand, including myself. The stock speakers in my car starting going out a while back, so it gave me the perfect excuse to get me a set of good speakers.

are these speakers marine certified?
Igor E on Jul 15, 2016
Best Answer: No! Not by any means. They'd be wrecked as soon as water got to them. Usually, marine audio is painted white and the title of the item will more than like mention something about being marine certified

Will need anything to install in a 2010 Acura TSX?
Robert B on Jan 18, 2016
Best Answer: No, front and rear speakers are 6.5". Just make sure your polarity is correct or you'll have no bass/it'll sound like crap. Wire colors will be different depending on whether or not you have the premium factory system. You might also consider getting components versus coaxials...all those highs will be awful "bright". Good luck!

I'd like to replace the rear speakers on a 2005 Toyota Camry Sedan LE w/ JBL Sound System. I can't seem to find replacement speakers. Is it due to the factory amp ?
