Speaker Specifications

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 8"
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 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.
70 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.
35 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).
45 - 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
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.
2-3/8"
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.
2-3/4"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5 x 7-3/16

Great bang for the buck

May 11, 2011

I got these for my single cab Ranger to replace the old "premium" speakers in all four corners. Highs and Mids are crystal clear. Bass is there but it has no punch whatsoever. A Kicker sub fixed that, which I was buying anyways. This is being run right from my Sony head unit, and I couldn't be happier for what it is. At full volume, these things are loud as h*** and have no distortion at all. But if you can afford something a little more expensive (Infinity), go for it. But at 1/3 the price, you can't go wrong. Now I can finally look down on people that crank up their music in they're cars just to hear all of that distortion ;). Really people, get these speakers, you'll be getting as many compliments for the system as I am.

Great F150 SuperCrew rear door speakers

July 3, 2012

These blow the stock speakers out of the water without breaking the bank. I recommend powering them with a Kicker amp to get the best sound. No mods necessary to the door. They are a perfect fit.

Bought this to replace blown factory speakers in front on Ford Excursion. Driven by factory radio. Demostrates how superior they are to factory speakers. Crisp clear sound and more volume. Not a lot of bass but they sound great. Plan on replacing the other 4 speakers with these as well.

August 12, 2010

These are perfect if you have subs. The hi's and mid's are very clear and the treble sounds good although if your using a ipod and you have the volume to high on the ipod they will distort so find a balance point and they're perfect. I'm running mine using a sony xplod deck so I can't comment on how they sound or how much bass they produce running off a multi channel amp. But, if you have subs and you want clear sound get these. Plus for 50 dollars you can't really go wrong.

Great speakers!

November 9, 2009

These are great speakers for the price. They sound really clear and loud off my older Kenwood head unit that I have, although they start to distort around 30 or so. I was expecting more bass from these but they are decent. I made the mistake of buying these to replace the stock 6.5's in the rear deck. They were a pain in the butt to install but they sound amazing compared to the old speakers. I also spent an entire day making cardboard baffles for them, which made the bass a lot more punchy. I am a bit disappointed that they don't come with grills, but they're in the rear deck so i'm not too concerned about punching a hole in them. Tweeters are bright and clear although a little small for the price. You don't see 1/2" tweeters very often anymore... Overall I recommend these very much. But if you have the money, definitely go with higher quality speakers that are made with higher quality materials.

I have 4 of these in my F150 SuperCrew and it is so loud that my 19 year old neighbor can't stand to sit in my truck with the volume up loud. The speakers are so clear that I can hear every instrument and all vocals of my music over my subs.
