Purely Premium Performance

Premium Series is MB Quarts finest and top of the line speakers for your system. Using the 40mm inverted dome Titanium WideSphere and the top quality resonant basket and Composite Cone, the Premium line of speakers are a perfect choice for in 2 way coaxials.

Tweeter Tonal Technology

Installation of high-end audio components in a car typically requires compromise due to the inconsistent nature of the environment. One issue in particular is tweeter placement. The ongoing struggle to find the correct balance between on-axis and off-axis placement greatly defines the systemís ability to offer proper staging and imaging.

MB Quart PVM216

The engineers at MB Quart recognized this issue and worked tirelessly on a solution that would offer predictable high-end performance in nearly any mounting location. The result is the artfully crafted WideSphere tweeter by MB Quart. Every WideSphere tweeter is designed to provide equal performance in both on-axis and off-axis configurations. In fact, the tweeter level and frequency response variations between on and off axis are only noticeable on the most expensive laboratory test equipment. The resulting benefit is a wide and deep sound stage with proper imaging placing you front row center of every selection you listen to.

Masterful Midrange Marvel

MB Quart PVM216

For years, speakers were constructed of the most crude and basic materials available. The steel, foam and paper designs got the job done but advancements in technology required speakers that could expose the benefits of the improved electronics they were hooked up to. Early on, the MB Quart team recognized a need to develop better components in order to improve overall system performance. The Composite Cone delivers impactful midrange/midbass and is perfectly matched to the ABS Composite Basket & Butyl Rubber Surround for stunning sound. The ABS basket proved to be more durable than the metal materials used previously but the real benefit was the substantial increase in midbass frequencies produced from small drivers.

Priced Per Pair

Speaker Specifications

This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Premium (MB Quart)
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.
Inverted 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.

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 Composite
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.
300 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.
150 watts
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".
89 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).
38 - 32,000 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.

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.
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.

Blowing speakers

Baton Rouge, LA

Okay for the price

January 14, 2015

Highs are pretty good and sound like they are in a $200 speaker. Midbass/bass not so much, and on par with a $65 speaker. Cannot handle rated watts. I have them set at around 35w right now, and thats the most they can take without the woofer popping. Tried them on two amps, and the same experience. Can't keep up with my Bostons in the front, but I didn't expect them to. Bostons are rated at 85w and will take 85w before distorting. I just wish the mids were a little stronger on these. I have a 6.5" Tang Band that I molded underneath my console, and it puts these to shame.

Switched to this set after almost immediately blowing the tweeters on some Kicker CS speakers. They also overrate their power handling. Both of my amps put out legit power numbers, and produce more than they're rated for, so if you have a quality amp, make sure to start very low on the gain, and expect them to stay lower. I think 150w would blow the cone out of the housing if it hit once.

If I didn't have a Sonic credit, I would probably get something else, maybe Infinity Kappas. Since I basically didn't have to pay for them, I am okay with the sound.

The basket is big, and I don't think they are actually 6.5 inches because I had to do a bunch of cutting to make them fit, so be aware of that.

Excellent speakers

January 19, 2015

Very good value for money. Ive replaced my rear factory speakers (2010 Mazda6) with these. Good quality Pioneer radio can drive them well. Deep bass, excellent tweeters, biggest magnets i've ever seen in tweeters. Play better that JBL power (previous car with good Alpine radio). Strongly recommended. P.S. PVM216s for front are the next step.

awesome price and great power handling

December 1, 2014

I had my installer put these new mb quart pvm116 speakers in the rear doors of my lexus GS300 to fill the rear area a little, and am very happy with their performance so far. I have polk mm series seps in the front doors, an the mb quarts match up well. they are powered by a 4 channel alpine mrv amp at 75w per channel so they are probably getting about 100w ea. Alpine always under rates their amps...
It's important to note that I have a true 10 farad hybrid stiffening cap to power the diamond 1000.1 monoblock amp for two JLw10's and the alpine for the separates, and the sound stays even and there is no overload of my stock alternator. I run a tsunami 40 farad in my z to run the 1600 watts of JLamp power there with the same success'
the new mb quarts arent as rich and full as the diamond 5.25s that they replaced, but I didn t have $350 laying around to get another set of those. Im still breakin the mb's in so ill post later to give you more info. But so far they are doing their job nicely.
I would also like to highly recommend Polk audio's mm series6.5 component to match with the mb's as the front stage. I am amazed by the rich , full sound they are putting out and the power they handle.

NOT BAD!! Made the right choice

October 15, 2014

Purchase the MB Quart PVM116 to replace the factory speakers in my 07 Avalanche. Reviewed several speakers before deciding on the PVM116. They sound Fantastic! with stock HU no amp. They supply plenty of base, (better than factory). Mids are nice as well. The speakers look Great. I will be replacing my HU and installing an amp so these girls can do what they do best -- open up and blow. I can hear them asking for more power. WOW!! Made pretty solid, Features are very nise. Ease of use was timely. Removing the the door panels was not too hard.Turned out pretty damn good. Stay tuned more to come!!!

MB Quart PVM116

March 5, 2015

I bought these due to the reviews and spec sheet as they seemed like they would be the best speaker with the best low frequency response of any 6.5" speaker wile maintaining crystal clear high's
and i am not dissapointed at all,
only thing i will say is that the cage design of MB quarts is a bit bulky and i had to widen the mounting hole to fit them

I took a chance on these. I didn't expect much out of a $100 set of coaxials.(used for rear fill) Fact is, they sound better than most budget friendly component sets out there. Would definitely recommend.

Nice design and quality
Gilberto T on Sep 2, 2015
I choose this set of speakers due to the low frequency responce, the amazing reviews on the tweeters and the mounting depth is where i need it to not hit anything in my doors, the reviews also really helped me decide, i have purchased a diferent set of MB quart components (to use in home audio speakers :p) and they worked amazingly so i feel really good about the quality of sound i should be getting from these, even if the sensitivity isnt as high as some infinity kappa's
Nathan S on Jan 31, 2015
Great speakers. I've had these for about a year. Clear and bright highs, can be a bit overpowering with windows closed in my car at high volume. With the windows open it sounds great at high volume, probably 2 blocks away as well. Considering the full spectrum of the sound, seems to have a sweet spot around medium-high to high volume where it sounds fantastic and I can't believe so much detail is coming from a few speakers. The bass is not huge compared to some other similar size, average.
