Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
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.
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.
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.
Reinforced Paper
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.
Treated Foam
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.
210 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.
70 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".
90 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 - 20,000 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.
2.3"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches, required to contain the speaker.
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.
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.

Best for the price!!!

January 15, 2010

These are excellent speakers. I ordered them for my '97 jetta to match my powerbass coaxials up front and to even out the midrange from the 10" JL sub that i got for christmas. These get the job done perfectly!!!

I haven't gotten my sub or my Alpine mrp-f300 amp hooked up yet so I've just been running them off my older kenwood headunit with about 40 watts to each side with the bass turned all the way up! And let me tell you the midbass is incredible for a 6.5!!! I pulled up one day to a group of my friends and they all thought i had hooked up the sub already! and the pb in the middle of the woofers is really fun to watch when bass hits.

The tweeters are nice. Since they're pure silk you don't get that tingy sound you get from metal tweeters and the sound is extremely accurate and sometimes ear piercing!

Buy these speakers!!!

Great speakers! I have them in the front of my Nissan Altima. Sounds great and packs a punch. Love the sound and bass it kicks. Amped up to my XAX4160 made it even louder! Great Deal.

Move on!

August 29, 2011

Put these in a Dodge Stratus using stock door locations for the midbass and modified the stock 3" dash location for the tweeters. They have been in there about 8 months and recently the drivers side midbass blew out. When working they lacked the lower mid tones anyways. Tweeters are way too harsh for my taste. Only Powerbass product ive owned i havent liked. Theyre an improvement over stock but you can get better for the price.

Decent comps

December 26, 2010

For those looking for a basic upgrade, these can likely fit the bill...If you expect great sound quality, these are probley not for you. The tweeters have a tendency to sound hissy and tinny on certain sounds. The midbass lacks "mid" bass, these woofers seemed better suited to reproducing only the higher hz bass types. The crossover points actually sound really good with rock and alternative, i thought these genres did the comps the most justice. For whatever reason, rap and r&b just dont sound as clean as the rock did. I suppose you get what you pay for, and that is the case here; low end components that are an upgrade to stock or low-end coaxials, but not much more. With adequate power, they can play loud, but not necessarily clean. If you can afford to fork out some extra cash, I would suggest looking elsewhere

Too sizzly, not enough woofer excursion

August 31, 2010

The tweeters certainly aren't horrible, but the crossover seems to be the root of the problem. They have a lot of sizzle and they are extremely loud when used with the crossover that comes in the box. The woofers sound ok, not much to talk about here.. they give out ok midbass when everything is flat but asking them to give you more than that will result in distortion.

All in all, ok for the price.. you're not getting much here though. If you want a good starter comp, go for the Boston series. Very natural sound (high crossover point for the tweeter I believe contributes to this; BA doesn't tell us where the crossover point is tho).

Wiring is a bit thin but they DO give you some wiring.

Inshort
Low excursion = average midbass
Paper cone = warm sound
Tweeters = need -6dB of attenuation at the minimum.. too much SSSSSizle.

Love the Looks And the low end extention

November 20, 2009

Bought these for a 1999 civic But wanted to try something new in my s40. I go for sound quality and these things are clear and loud. I have my subs crossed over at 65 because the woofers go down low to about 55. Crossover looks nice until opened. cap and coil that's lame. I built my own 12db highpass for my phasetech home audio tweeters and low passed these woofers at 2500. They sound great. Ripped woofer trying to clip in mesh grill be care full
