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.
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.
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.
50 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.
25 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).
60 - 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.
1-13/16"
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.
2-1/16"
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.
3-3/4 x 3-3/4 
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

I was surprised

May 18, 2011

A buddy of mine has 8 of these installed in his truck, 2 in each door and I was very surprised how loud they got. They definitely helped him increase his highs since he has 6 15" subs.

These speakers are excellent for the price. They actually sound very good. Don't expect too much bass from these. They obviously won't rattle a car. They are only 4"

Great speakers for the money

February 3, 2011

Had these installed in a Toyota Previa above the fuse box, they added a nice fill to the other 4 speakers. They sounded so good, my friend wanted them to replace his kenwoods, so I gave them to him, fit great in his Mazda B2600i pickup, they sound great with his kenwood HU.

Great highs

January 21, 2010

These replaced the rear door speakers in my 4runner. They are only 4 inch speakers so obviously these aren't going to produce lows, but they add great mid and highs to jazz and classical tracks that allow backseat passengers to hear what they need to hear. I am running these off of the head unit only, not amplified but I can't imagine wanting to go louder as I don't even go close to full volume on my head unit. I don't have any other 4 inch speakers to compare these to as I've only installed 6.5" speakers in other spots but they seem to be pretty good for the cost -- I would like to hear higher priced 4 inch speakers just to compare them too though, I'm not really sure how much better they'd sound?

great little speakers!!!

May 17, 2009

I was very surprised at the performance of these speakers. I'm not an audiophile by any means so my sound experience is very limited. I was looking for something to replace my terribly muffled (and weak) rear door speakers in my 2004 Subaru Impreza RS. I needed something decent, inexpensive, and that could be driven off the OE head unit without an amp. These fit the bill perfectly. So far these speakers have been a huge improvement. The highs are way better and the mids are much clearer. They don't have much in the way of bass, but that's OK. It's about what you'd expect from a 4" speaker. Since they're rear door speakers their role is really filler and for that they do the job perfectly. Overall I'm very pleased. Thanks Sonic

August 4, 2008

I bought these speakers to replace the speakers in the rear pillar of my 04 Silverado. They sound amazing compared to the factory installed ones. The sound is really clear, but they lack a lot of bass for being so small. I will be putting a sub in soon to bring up the low end.

May 15, 2008

i bought these speakers for my 86 camry and they sound great the mids and highs are crystal clear. bass isn't really more a soft thump but that is expected for such a small speaker. although the speaker does have alot of excursion i find that suprising but this is the first kicker speaker i have owned and it wont be the last.
