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.
Polypropylene
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.
120 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.
60 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".
88 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).
45 - 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.

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.
2-7/8"
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.

blow you away

April 1, 2009

I can't believe the sound from these. 5+ across the board. I have infinity references and am now selling to buy another pair of these. for my other car. They play as low as most 8" subwoofers. def sq set and the best price.

I've used Phoenix Gold Amps and subs for 10 years. They've had problems with the line of amps and speakers before this line. All I have to say is they went back to the basics.

Pros:
They are some of the cleanest speakers I've heard in a while.
Sound Quality is the best on almost every style of music. I listen to a lot of Smooth Jazz, R&B, Neo Soul, Classical, Techno, Country, Heavy Metal, and Podcast. All sounds very good and clean.
They are surprisingly inexpensive. Google them and you'll find reviewers saying the same thing.

Cons:
Not really a con, but the tweeters can be a bit powerful when you turn them up. I have a Kicker 700.5 (Thanks Sonic Electronix) with a Phoenix Gold 12" RSd sub and it goes together well. Not really a use to that kind of tweeter. I have Alpine Type X comps. in my truck and they have a really mellow tweeter.

I would recommend these to any one. I've sold 3 people on them and at the price, I don't think there is anything better.

RSD65cs best components for the price

March 24, 2009

I really like these they play really low. It blends the subs better. I listen to mostly rock and heavy metal. they are fast and accurate. Far as the tweeters go my infinitys are more harsh. The infinitys don't even compair across the board. A++++++++++++ I gave 3 for last section just because they are speakers

One of the best Comp. at any price.

October 14, 2008

First off, I listen to a lot of Smooth Jazz, R&B, & Classical music. Both running on the Kicker 5ch amp. I have 2 cars. In one I have a complete Alpine speakers with Type X comp. I went with a budget system in my other car. I went to PG speakers & I notice a different sound, but I liked it more. The Type X sounds a bit darker, but in a very good way. The PG sound more natural and life like. There's no way to describe it with out listening to them yourself.

Rsd 6.5\'s

January 11, 2007

These sound great. I've got 60wrms to them in undeadened doors and they are still as clean and clear as can be. The tweets are smooth and not too bright. I can hear every little nuance and detail of the music now compared to the stock system ( mach 460). I can highly recommend these at this price point.

Overall should be 4.5 .

okay for the price

March 28, 2009

Been using this product for 3 months now. They are ran thru an infinity basslink II 4sc amp/sub. Head unit pioneer avic d3. I only have two front speakers nothing at the back, this speakers are loud enough for my scion tc. This is my first install for a car speaker, mainly got these because of the price. Certainly better sounding than the stock speakers.

Incredible speakers!

March 3, 2009

They are amazing, especially for the price.

I made sure to mount my tweeters high enough (inside side-mirror panels) and the highs are amazing; the mid-bass is also amazing, it's hard to believe it can sound so good..

Before I bought these, my rear speakers would produce most of the sound, and they sounded better than the fronts.. Well, now, the fronts sound a LOT better than the rears, and produce most of the sound.

I love them!

Amazing!

October 15, 2008

I ran these off the head unit, and the bass was good. The tweeters were crisp. I was recommended these speakers through a forum, and I was not disappointed.
The Phoenix Golds are deep speakers. Require almost 3" of mounting depth.
This is the best component set for the price!
