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 9"
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.
Semi-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.

PEN
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.
140 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.
70 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".
92 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 - 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.

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.
3-1/4"
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.
5-5/16 x 8-3/4 
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.

Not too bad at all

October 20, 2013

I would recommend these to anyone who wants a simple and rather cheap upgrade from your stock speakers. I have these mounted in the doors of my 07 Toyota Tacoma, not even running and amp to them and they get loud as hell. I've never had a distortion problem. The sound quality is really amazing for the price.

6 years and finally gave up the ghost

July 19, 2013

Had a pair of these in my 2007 dodge ram for 6 years now. They finally bit the dust when I did an amp upgrade. They were sounding a bit rough for about a year. I would recommend these if you do not plan on attaching them to a high powered amp, most powered head units will sound stellar with these.

ok speakers had one blow

March 30, 2012

I got these speakers and installed them in my 97 grandprix . Had them in for 2 days before the pass side speaker blew out. Im running them at max rms watts. They sound ok for the price range but my front speakers overpower them easy so they kind of get lost. Decent bass. I would recommend these if you are running just the power from your head-unit. I love kickers and I run 2 s12 l7 subs

Good speakers

July 5, 2011

I bought a pair of this speakers October 2010, it has not has any problem so far. The sound quality is quite good for the price like this. The only issue I have is that the speaker is quite big for my Toyota Camry, I needed to modified my car a little bit before it can fit in.

Great Speakers

July 4, 2011

I installed these in my 97 Honda Civic Coupe. These speakers are so much better than the stock speakers. They have a clean sound and nice bass with my new Kenwood KDC-HD545U. Installing rear deck speakers in a 97 Civic Coup is a very big project. After half the rear interior was ripped out of the car I was able to get to the rear deck. They fit like a glove. They just dropped right in. I would say these speakers were worth the extra work. Great product and quick delivery, I would buy from Sonic Electronix.com again.

Solid speakers

June 20, 2011

Great speakers! If you have subs there is no need to purchase and amp to power these, but these are clearly made to be powered by an amplifier. These speakers sound great even with everything up on the 240 watt head unit and no distortion. The price isn't bad, you won't be disappointed.

Nice!!!!!

October 29, 2010

This speakers are great. The sound is great, and as soon as you handle them you'll know, they mean business. The magnet is a little on the large side, but not to bad, they fit great in the factory hole, and had no problems putting the factory back cover over top of them.. They were worth every penny, and acutally I saved a few, everywhere else was at least 10 to 20 dollars more. So I am a happy man, good tunes and money to spare.

impressive clarity

October 11, 2010

I have had JBL and Sony Xplode 6x9's (roughly in the $70-$90 value) in the past and neither brand seemed to have the clarity these kickers have. I've usually struggled to get enough high end for my liking, but with these combined with my Pioneer to turn down treble in system before but these combined with my Pioneer Premier FH-P800BT head unit can actually be too much. Don't know how much of it is due to Pioneer unit vs. Kicker speakers but nontheless they are nice.

Only downside I have is that when I crank it they seem to flutter. I'm not a stereo guru so I don't know if its something easily fixable if reconfigured. Unit produces 22W RMS / 50W Peak x 4 channels and these are rated far beyond that so too much power shouldn't be the issue. I don't need to make my ears bleed much so I don't have much need for investigating it further. perhaps one day I'll add an amp but for now standard use is just fine.

A perfect match!

October 1, 2010

I added these speakers paired with my Polk db651's and being powered by a Kicker 700.5 amp. Let me say that this was a match made in heaven. The kickers are rated at 70W RMS and the Polks at 60W RMS with the kicker amp pushing 70W RMS/channel. This combination was 'perfect'. The perfect blend of warmth, clarity, and precision. They are low enough to pick up a low mid-bass, mid enough to hear the warmth in the voices and guitars, and high enough to hear the crispness of hi-hats and voices! These are by far some of the best 6"x9"s on the market!! Not to mention, some of the best prices!!!

Kicker all day!

September 14, 2010

I got these along with matching kicker 4" speakers in my car. No amp just running them off the heady and they sound great together nice and clear. You just cant go wrong with Kicker, and especially for the prices that Sonic Electronix sells em for. Easy to install, im satisfied and definitely recommend this.
