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" (also mounts in 6-3/4" w/ included brackets)
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.
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.

Textile
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.
Mica Injected Polypropylene (MIPP)
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.
180 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.
60 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".
93.4 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).
53 - 21000 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.
1-15/16"
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.
4-3/8" x 4-3/8" 
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

Great speakers ... better with amp

October 21, 2009

My plan was to run these for rear fill and power them with my Kenwood HU. I'm running front components and sub off of 4 channel amp. My HU is 17 watts RMS per channel. While the speakers sound very nice clearly this is not enough power to make them sound great. There is very little low end. I left one factory speaker in left rear door and one of these in right rear door and compared them. While the 6022i sounded a lot better than the factory speaker the factory speaker did have a lot more low end.

Great Speakers

September 28, 2009

I got these six months ago, and they have been rocking hard ever since. WARNING: i have an 04 WRX - Installation was a HUGE pain, these are too deep for the doors, without messing around a lot trying to get them to fit. You need a spacer, but the ones purchased were too tall, then had to customize them, etc.. etc.. Got them to fit eventually, and now I rock. These are actually powerful enough to rattle the metal in the doors, and they sound great when listening to metal, rock, pop, rap, w/e. I recommend complimenting these with a sub as well.

Nice speakers

August 22, 2009

I really like these speakers: they have a very good sound and nice crystal clear highs. I have to mention that I never ran these speakers with low frequency, because I donīt need it. The only thing that disappoint me a little from the speakers is what they donīt have so much power and doesnīt sound louder as I though, but still doesnīt matter, because they sound pretty nice and the price is good!

Infinity Reference 6022i

June 15, 2009

Purchased the Infinity speakers to replace the blown door speakers for a pristine 98 Camaro SS Convertible. They were all around better speakers than the original equiipment. I was extremely impressed at the audible frequency range(lows and highs) , the clarity and the absence of noise. They were great speakers for listening to Mozart, EZ listening or cranking up for jamming on Boston. I would highly recommend these for any vehicle where they would be physically compatible.

When my Bose speakers in my 1997 Maxima blew, I bought two pairs for the front and back to replace the whole inside. They sound great in the car. To me they are a huge step up from the Bose. They have great highs and lows. The bass is perfect if you are into metal music like me. I would recommend these to anyone.

Smooth Bass, Clear Mids, Good Highs

December 8, 2008

Installed these in the rear doors of my 2008 Tacoma. What a difference from stock! Deep, smooth bass, and great midrange. I turned the tweeters down with the adj button, wish I had left them up 3 db. Still has good highs. I like the ability to turn the tweeters toward the listener. Easy to install-I used the old speakers as adapters. Highly recommend these 6.5's.

Bought these off of a recommendation from a friend and must say I am purely amazed. The highs and mids sound extremely nice. The tweeter in the middle has a dB booster (+3) that I just left as it came. Improved the sound of my system tenfold (from a stock system w/ amp)
