Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Chaos (Boss)
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.
Pair
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
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 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.

Polymide
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.
Injection Molded Polypropylene (IMPP)
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.
200 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".
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).
100 - 18000 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
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.
1-11/16"

Boss CH5520 speakers

April 28, 2014

The speakers looked really nice in the pictures & said they were 5.25 " speakers. Now I went to install them in place of some old dry speakers in my classic 1972 Ford pickup. I removed the 5.25" Pioneer speakers to find these Boss speakers are smaller & the screw tabs don't even get where the screws were. The speaker measures 5" from edge straight across to the other edge. Now I am looking to order pioneer speakers of the same as I just removed since they were dry with cracked, torn material from age when I installed them back in 1998.

Good speakers for the price.

August 14, 2013

These speakers have a good overall sound as long as you aren't looking for something to blast really loud. I'd say they are about the same quality as average OEM speakers. Not bad for the price.

Boss CH5520 speakers

October 31, 2011

We mounted these speakers in a 1980 Bronco we restored to use as a hunting vehicle. We had an extra Alpine stereo that we installed in the vehicle with these speakers and it sounds great. We will now have some killer "tunes" when we cruise the deer lease this fall!!

Mediocre speakers at best

October 14, 2011

Shipping was great! Got here in like 34 hours. Speakers are not the best but better than stock. I cant turn my kenwood deck all the way up or they distort pretty bad. I would save up the extra money and get a brand other than Boss Audio.

Boss CH5520 5-1/4" car 2-way speakers

September 9, 2010

I bought a set of the Boss CH5520 5-1/4" speakers for my daughter's car after she blew the OEM speakers by cranking the volume too high on her music. I wanted speakers that could take the abuse I knew she would give them. They have been in for six months now. She can crank the volume as high as she likes and still get great sound. For the price range these speakers are a great value!

They are great as FRONT speakers. They have almost no bass, but strong mids and highs. They were a great addition to my truck because I had the constant THUMP THUMP from 2 8" rear and two 12" subs in the back. installation is the same as every other speaker you hook up in a car.
