Priced Per Complete Component System: 2 woofers, 2 midwoofers, 2 tweeters and 2 crossover networks.

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.
3-way Component Speakers
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.
1" Hard 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.

Solid Aluminum
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.
Solid Aluminum Cones
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.
100 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).
30 - 25,000 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.
2-7/8"
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.
2-31/32"
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.
5-21/32"
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.

The complete Package

March 21, 2010

Great sq setup, if set up right with you should have no problems. I power mine from a kicker sx 900.4 and they love the power i have mine mounted in custom locations. Definitely remember you are looking at some work to get these bad boys to fit, unless of course you have a European car with factory 3- way components.

out of the box it comes with everything you need, AND THE MIDBASS KICKS SO WELL. This set will definitely compliment a good sub stage i have 2 12" IA Flatlynes and they really mix well ..

These components get loud, no doubt about it. The three way components are hard to find room for w/o major customization. My only real complaint is that when you play the music loud over an extended period (usually more rock w/ continous vocals) the tweeter cuts out until you turn it down as if it's trying to cool down. It drove me nuts, enough to buy new components.

These speakers are very loud and sound really clean. The size is a bit big, but that doesn't matter if you want clean sound for a great price. Sonic Electronix said it would fit my car, well i made it work. Waiting on my next pair in the mail gonna change Polks for these in my rear doors.

Best bang for the buck by far.

September 29, 2010

I've purchased 4 set's of these and a friend also has after we both installed them in his car and my wife's car. They sound very, very good for their price point. They sound as good to me as a set that costs 3 or 4 times this much. It's near impossible to get a 3-way component set at this price point that sounds this good.
The midrange and tweeter are very nice. The midrange to some might sound a little bright, easy to correct this - reverse the phase on the midranges. Also the tweeter may also seem this way but that can be averted with attenuating 3 db via the crossover. The set SHINES in the midbass area. The 6.5's in this set will blow you away and leave my buddies car not needing a sub any longer. His doors are very well sealed and deadened as I used a few different products on his doors to ensure excellent response on the low end frequencies. Good deadening and well sealed doors are a must with these speakers. Installation is a breeze. The tweeter is small and the midrange is reasonable small as well, a couple of hole saw's is all you need to install them.

Nice Speakers.....but would not fit

March 11, 2011

These are the nicest, well built set of components I have ever seen!!..The Mid Bass drivers look like small subs...they are huge and deep!!!....And there lies the problem....could not get them in my 2008 Altima...I had Cartunes do the install...and they tried everything under the sun...the last resort was to cut holes in my door panels, which I did not want. I really felt bad....I was exicted to hear these speakers. So be prepared to to some heavy modding to get these to fit

The speaker set I bought was great for the first month or so. After that I had notice a bit of a rattle in one of the woofers and thinking that it's probably my doors. So then I bought sound deadening mat and it helps ALOT but still notice the rattle in the woofer. Either way I still love the system and it still sounds great minus the rattle.

This is a great set of speakers. The separation is well defined. The midwoofers, tweeters and midrange are outstanding. You only need to be very carefull when handling the woofer during installation .The aluminum cone is very delicate and prone to get damaged when touched..

You need to BUY THESE NOW!

December 21, 2010

I have owned several systems component sets over the last 20 years, but I will have to say that these speakers were the CLEANEST and most DETAILED set I have heard in a long time. The mids and highs image like crazy, while the mid bass drivers REALLY fill the big void between most component woofers and the subwoofer. You can stop using your sub to fill the gap, and start getting cleaner sounding mid bass response! These are very power hungry so, please be sure to run this set off of an ample amplifier, and be prepared to make some modifications in order to get the mid bass drivers to fit properly.

Quality product for a great price

December 1, 2010

Excellent overall quality. The mid tweeter combo is a little to bright / harsh for installation in the A-pillars. I think they are better suited to a kick panel or factory door speaker location. Excellent low end out of the 6.5" woofer and the overall sound is very nice. Since mine are installed in the A-pillars it took some tuning to tone down the higher frequencies. After that I am quite happy with the speakers performance.

October 28, 2010

Sound great. But bulky to install. Not recommended in limited space. If you have the space great sound quality and value I have owned MB Quart, Alpine Type-R, Pioneer, Rockford, MTX, and Image Dynamics. Would highly recommend them if you have the extra cash
