Superior Sound Staging

Hifonics Zeus speakers have been engineered with some key elements directly into their main design: premium sound quality, durability, and a low profile design to fit in many different vehicles! Zeus speakers use the latest in titanium ceramic cone materials and engineering to provide a state-of-the-art speaker. At the center of the titanium ceramic composite cone is an ultra-light, rigid bass driver that provides an extremely smooth response.

Paired with a Neodymium silk dome (NSD) tweeter design is a 360° radial air-cooled motor structure and magnet assembly to handle the most extreme power. The Hifonics’ NSD provides smooth frequency response up to 25,000 Hz that is perfect for the exacting audio enthusiast. Also featured is a bright blue LED that illuminates when the speakers are on. Appropriately named Sound Light, the Hifonics logo vibrantly appears on certain models by means of illuminating back lights. On component speakers, the speaker dust cap illuminates the logo.

Hifonics Zeus series value is incorporated directly into the cost and the quality stands out beyond anything with these speakers. Hifonics Zeus ZXi series speakers provide exceptional staging and overall tone reproduction is superb.

Priced Per Component System: 2 midwoofers, 2 tweeters, and 2 crossovers

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.
5-1/4"
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 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.
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.
450 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.
90 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).
60 - 30000 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.
2-1/4"
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.
2-1/2"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches, required to contain the speaker.
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5-3/16" x 5-3/16" 
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.

Great component speakers for a GREAT price!

August 12, 2009

Over all these speakers are worth the money.

Pros: They get very loud just from stock head unit power, and hit the mids and highs great! And they even have lights that light up the logo. Easy install, And they are cheap!

Cons: One of the wires they sent me for the tweeters were broken, but that was no big deal. And after 5 months of having them one of the crossover boxes quit working for a few days... But just started working again. and haven't had a problem since.

Comments: I love these speakers and i will probably end up buying them again. they sound great and are cheap. The crossover box was bigger than i expected. But i was able to hide everything and it looks great.

Good Speakers for the Price

April 26, 2010

Good speakers for the price.

Crossovers are large (something like 3 1/2" by 5") making it hard to find a spot for them.

Speaker cutout size isn't listed anywhere, but seem to be right around 4 1/2". Tweeter cutout size is just a touch larger than 1 3/4".

Efficiency is listed as 91db, but I don't quite believe this number as the 91db speakers in my rear deck are quite a bit louder.

Very solid value. Loud and good to great sound

January 31, 2010

For a value set of components with high power handling and 4ohm, these things fit the bill. I never had heard of Hifonics before, but reading the other opinions made me take the plunge. Besides, I previously blew a set of JBL since their max power was 90, so I figured these Hifonics would work, and thus far, they have. In fact, I plan to twist up the gain a bit more on my front channels to let the amp work a bit more.

Pros: shallow mounting depth, high power handling, installation flexibility with the tweeters, sound way better than what I had before. Way better.

cons: the xover is thick. It's average in size at L x W, but they were thicker than I expected. For a application that needs a thin xover, these are not a good choice. No problem for me as they still fit in my door, just not as easily as my old ones.

other thoughts; I guess they have some LEDs that can be hooked up. I didn't use that. Comes with a good amount of installation hardware like quite a few screws, a few different tweeter mounts and some other finishings, none of which I used but someone probably needs that stuff.

lots of bang for your buck

April 2, 2009

i have these speakers in the doors of my scirocco, with the tweets hiding in the fresh air ducts, and the crossovers stashed in the glove box, i am sending them 100watts RMS at 4 ohms via a hifonics amp
these little speakers get LOUD and so far they have been very clear sounding, i had to remove the rubber boot to get them to fit but my car was designed to hold a 10watt 4x6"..the cross overs are a little bulky but they are not huge.. i thought that i was going to get allot lower sound quality considering the cost, but i was wrong, cheap price, great sound. i will be using more hifonics speakers in the future

Nice Speakers

April 9, 2008

for 60 bucks, this component set doesnt disappoint at all. Got them in my 96 monte carlo with matching 6x9s in the rear, running off a power acoustik ov840, so theyre getting around 50rms at 4ohms, sound pretty good, although with the bass turned up my subs tent to drown out the highs, i wish they wernt under the plastic cover so I could look at the lights on the front tho

I have these in my 2005 Dodge SRT-4 and I love them. I would put them up against a Kicker set up any day. I am running them straight of the head unit and never turn it past 2/3 or it gets too loud. I have yet to hear any distortion from them and they are easily heard over my two Solo Baric L7s!! I was so impressed I am replacing my Solos with a Hifonics Olympus 12". My only complaint is that the cross over is a little bulky. It was hard to find a place and I ended up putting them inside the door.

good for 5.25's

February 21, 2008

for 5 1/4" speakers these aren't half bad at this price. they sound good and with the grills and the LEDs they look amazing if you're gonna show them off

BE WARNED: the crossovers for these things are damn big. I installed them in the doors of my '87 CRX, which is a very small car and had to really fight to find a place to put them where I could still roll my windows down all the way. If you're installing these in a 4-door or an SUV it probably wont be an issue, but if it's for a 2-door then you might want to look elsewhere

Great little speakers

December 3, 2009

I love these speakers. Right now I have 4 of them hooked up to a 90w RMS x 4 amp and they sound amazing. The highs are extremely clear and the mids sound pretty good. They are able to keep up with my FI 18" BTL! I love how I can have all the windows down on the highway and I can still hear my music perfectly.
For the price you simply can't beat them.
