Setting the Bar for Reference Sound

The MB Quart QS216 car speakers are brand new for the 2011 MB Quart Q-Series. With the high expectations that come with the Q Series, there is no doubt that these speakers are among the finest ever created. Holding true to the legendary Q Series sound, the QS216 speakers bring reference audio to a new level.

High Definition "Q Control" Crossover

Much of the sound quality of a component speaker system rests solely on the quality of the crossover. The MB Quart QS216 include a high end crossover that true audiophiles will appreciate. The solid construction and top-notch craftsmanship easily set it apart from the rest. Advanced "Q Control" inside the crossover allows for avariable points of attenuation in the midrange and the tweeter. MB Quart also included their Balanced Temperature Control Technology that will ensure the integrity of your music will never degrade or suffer over extended periods of high power listening. Go a step further by adding the ability to bi-amplify the tweeter separately from the midrange and you are set with the ultimate crossover.

A True Audiophile Midrange

One glance at the midrange woofers and you think there is something special about them. Once you pick them up, you know there is something very special about them. MB Quart uses a Nomex PMI Composite sandwich material in the speaker cone. The material is lightweight and rigid, two of the most important attributes when constructing a speaker cones. The combination results in a flat linear response with brilliant low frequency response and high sensitivity.

Breathtaking Tweeter Design

The tweeters included with the Q-Series QS216 are a large 40mm in diameter and made from a Teteron silk composite. The result is beautiful acoustic reproduction that rivals the highest end of tweeters. Flawless reproduction of audio frequencies and improved durability are a direct result of using the advanced materials. Flush and angle mount hardware is included and helps to mount the tweeters in a variety of locations.

Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Q-Series (MB Quart)
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.
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 Component System
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.

Teteron Silk
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.
Nomex PMI Composite
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.
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.
170 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.
80 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".
89 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).
35 - 32,000 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.

No
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.
2-7/8"
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.
3"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5-5/8" x 5-5/8" 
Hi-Res Audio Compatible
This feature refers to if the product is capable of Hi-Res Audio (HRA) playback.
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
Number of Speakers
This is the number of speaker that is included in the package. Each purchase will result in receiving the number of speakers indicated here. Please note that some items will have multiple woofers in the same enclosure. For sets of component speakers, this number will refer to the number of sets of speakers (For example, 2 would indicate the purchase includes 2 woofers and 2 tweeters).

Please refer to the product image and description for further details about the speaker.

Amazing product!! Best I have ever heard.
Keith S on Nov 25, 2014
I read very positive reviews, great feed back on the ones who have already tried the speakers out.
ranjit m on Dec 1, 2014
so do these run at 2 ohm or 4 ohm, and if at 4ohm how would I make them run at 2ohm?
jeff b on Nov 12, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Jeff,

They are 4ohm Speakers, and will only read 2ohm if paired to a sharing Channel. This will likely do nothing beneficial - apart from freeing up a channel - because you are still going to share the power at 2ohms, making this moot. 70w RMS @ 4ohms to the speakers is still a solid figure; Especially if your amp's manufacture is known to underpower. In regards to the Extra Tweeters, please do your homework on hooking up multiple speakers. Doing this alters the impedance if you are planning on going to the same amp. If the impedance doesn't match across the amp, it will stress it, and eventually fail.
