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 Pair

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" x 8"
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.
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.
Ceramic Titanium
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.
425 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.
85 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).
42 - 25000 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.
2.32"
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.
3.38"
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.

Guess I spoke too soon...

October 5, 2010

This is a follow-up review I replaced my 4 doors with these in March 2010. It's now October 2010. I recently upgraded 4ch amp to Pioneer GM-D9500F. CEA compliant 75 W RMS... and now one of the fronts is becoming blown. I used the HPF on my deck to raise it up a bit (100Hz) so less mid-bass getting sent to the 4ch's and this has helped buy me some time. It's a shame too because I liked the sound and output of these. Guess they overrated them a bit.

Loud and clean

May 18, 2011

I have a pair of these in the doors of my 06 mustang GT amped and they are loud. They were somewhat loud of the head unit but you expect more from them. Amped, they are just as clean as JL but louder. They also have the cool light feature that goes along with the song, but I don't use it.

Good Highs and mids

September 10, 2011

I have had these for six months or so and have them running through a Hifonics HFi55.4 amp (55 watts rms x4 at 4 ohms) and they sound great. the only problem I have is my amp heating up when I crank them up and making them sound washy But that is NOT a speaker problem at all. They look good, sound good, and have lasted through the punishment I have given them. The only thing I would say is they are not so hot in a bass department they are pretty much meds and highs.

February 1, 2011

I like these speakers. I got 4 of them them for my 98 crown vic and they work fine, however, I have The Hifonics HFi55.4 Amp powering them, also I've kind of babied my system by using a great amp kit and capacitor. Bottom line, if you take care of these speakers they'll take care of you.

They're the Real Deal!

March 12, 2010

I ordered a set of these for my front doors to replace some blown Pioneer TS-A6872R (I was never impressed with the Pioneer's BTW). I instantly noticed much improved sound quality and quantity with these so I went right back and ordered 2 more for my rear doors. Put those in today and now I know what the missing element was in why I wasn't quite 100% happy with my system as a whole... it was the previous door speakers being all worn-out and distorted.

and at just under $50 bucks shipped right to my door the very next day (both times I might add) it's a total no-brainer.

BTW.. I'm powering these with an SSL F4.400 rated @ 50 watts RMS so these things surely would perform even more with a better quality amp. And that would have to be redonkulously loud 'cause it's already damn skippy! ;}

bought these to replace some factory speakers in a 06 mustang, much better sound quality, they also seem to get louder on the factory head unit than the old ones... the lights are a little silly but you don't have to hook them up... overall very good

May 15, 2010

well these speakers are good, only if you have an amp that will give them a lot of watts. if your amp is not very powerful they will sound horrible! you at least need 250Watts for each one so they can function right. if you dont have an amp, go with pioneer speakers. pioneers are lighter.

good speakers

November 3, 2009

i have a 2002 navigator the stock speakers weren't terrible but i had to have more of an impacting sound so i picked these up. install kinda weird with that lil light thing u have to find a grounding screw.
the light worked up until i added my MRP-F300 /////Alpine speaker amp the light just turned off of every speaker. the sound is really good tho nice clear highs the mids r powerful im not sure about the bass cuz my alpine type r carries that but the blending from speakers to sub is really good with these speakers i would get this again they're pretty good for 44 for a pair and the rubber coated magnet is great cuz i had a small leak in my door from the window and the speaker is fine. if you r hesitant to get these don't be they're great with and without and amp

Great Purchase from Sonic!

September 19, 2010

Had to replace my four factory speakers in my 2007 Ford Focus after I installed a MTX Thunderform 12 inch subwoofer and replaced the factory radio with an Eclipse CD1200G, both which I got from Sonic. The factory speakers just could not keep up with the Eclipse and MTX to reproduce my MP3 music. I got four of these Zeus speakers after reading all the reviews and comparisons that Sonic has on their site. This is why I'm writing my own review to say thanks to all those before me that helped make my decision which I have not regretted. These speakers fit perfectly and the sound reproduction is fantastic. They have a tremendous dynamic range from the cymbal highs to the kettle drum bass lows which will make my car vibrate with the power turned to about 50% with the MTX going. The blue light is also a plus since I just wired it into my door electric window harness which illuminate only when the ignition switch is in the "on" position. Makes for great ambient lighting behind the speaker grilles. You can't go wrong with these speakers and Sonic's price makes it a Great Value.
