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
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.
Balanced 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.

PEI (Polyetherimide)
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.
Ribbed Poly-Foam
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.
90 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.
50 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).
43 - 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.

Yes
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.
1-7/8"
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.
4-13/16" x 4-13/16" 
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

4 Kicker 6.5's In 04 S10

March 28, 2011

I bought 4 of these for my 2004 s10 I would recommended bass blockers for them if you have a sub they don't handle the lows all too well but the highs are crisp and mid range response is excellent So far after 6-7 months they are still going strong. Also I have 2 10 inch subs running at around 500 RMS and these speakers reach out and give you vocals even during HIGH bass songs None of the BOOOOOM and then hear the words after the bass GREAT SYSTEM 4 6.5 Kickers and 2 Kicker 10's to Kicker amp shakes my little s10 right along.

Crystal Clear Sound

March 8, 2011

These speakers work great. I only ordered two speakers and have them in the back of my 2000 Maxima. I kept two stock speakers to see how the combination would work. The power that comes from those little speakers is really amazing. I would recommend these speakers to a friend because of the amazing sound and ease of use.

Great for the price.

August 24, 2010

Considering these speakers only cost me $40, they are great. I do not have a monster system. I have these DS600, Kicker KS 6x9, and an Eclipse amp 60x4. Together it sounds great. If money is no problem for you, I would suggest something a little higher quality, but these sound great with what I have in a single cab truck. No complaints from me. Great bang for your buck!

sick speakers!

June 4, 2010

I had these installed in my car all 4 replaced, and it was an excellent decision, as my music came alive. Before, the stock speakers just couldn't do it even with a Kenwood eXcelon head unit. now it sounds like a concert in my car, its so sick.

Great start!

March 12, 2010

I purchased these, as well as a matching pair of DS 6x9's for my rear deck. I needed something to keep up with my 12's in the trunk. These kickers definitely do the job, with very little distortion might I add. For this price, these speakers are a great start to someone looking for a system on a budget. I highly recommend them.

Great speakers for the money!

November 2, 2009

I installed these speakers as a modest upgrade to the stock system in my 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe. They went in the front doors in place of the stock mids. The highs are clearer, the lows are extended, and all sound is not slightly distorted compared to the factory speakers. I didn't know how really bad the old speakers were until I put these in. They went in with no drilling or other modification of any kind. Even after putting in sound deadening, these were an improvement. Next step is replacing the rears with another pair of these. I thought about replacing the head unit too, but just replacing the speakers has helped so much, I'll keep the factory head unit. It works fine.

Amazing Price and Amazing Performance

September 13, 2009

I recently purchased 4 of these speakers for my 99 Blazer to replace the factory speakers that were still installed in it when I picked up the truck. Just powered by a Pioneer head unit they are super clean and can handle max volume with the proper adjustment. Don't expect these to put out the bass of a sub by any means but they certainly do give a good bump. Mids and highs are super clear and never get tinny or muddy sounding. For the price these are a steal for the level of performance you get from them. Anyone that hears my system thinks I have 3-4 times as much money invested in it than I actually do. If you're looking to actually listen to your music, versus rattling your vehicle to pieces with bass, you would be happy with just these speakers alone. I know I am.
