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" 
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

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!!!

April 15, 2014

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

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.

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.

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.
