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.
6-1/2"
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
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.

Titanium
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.
Santoprene 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.
100 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.
50 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".
91 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).
40 - 23000 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.
2-1/4"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5" x 5" 
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.

I purchased these speakers to replace my factory cockpit speakers in my 40' Sailboat. They are mounted with a very large locker behind each mount. I first installed them without an amplifier but noticed they did not sound too much different than the speakers I just replaced them with? So I ordered a high quality amp to run the speakers. They now have 60 watts RMS going to each speaker. This did the trick!! They are now a completely different speaker. The amp brought out all of the range these speakers were designed to do. They are plenty loud even over the engine when I am motoring along when there is no wind to sail. To summarize my review would be; If you are thinking about purchasing these speakers and running them off of your deck power (even if it's 22-30 watts rms) FORGET IT! you're wasting your money! These speakers were obviously designed with an amplifier in mind! They are hungry for "REAL" power and they're more than worth every penny! I was pleasantly surprised how full and powerful these speakers are especially for the price! No regrets.

Great all-around speaker

August 8, 2007

Have four of these puppies installed in my Mastercraft boat. They're very nice sounding and can handle ALOT of power. I do alot of wakeboarding and on a quiet day I can hear them about 70 feet away from the boat, and even over the engine noise. Excellent bass production and mids, highs are good, however, I have heard the clarion component speakers and by comparison they are much better. But for the price and ease of installation, would highly recommend these, especially over pyle, boss, etc. These are a legitimate car speaker that is designed for a marine environment, they're very, very solid. Plain looking, but look good in a boat where everything is typically white anyway.

temporary speakers

September 11, 2011

The Clarions are good for one season only. Even though my boat sits under a covered lift the speaker rot out each year. Sun kills these things and they would be better for a car vs a boat.

Very good value

May 23, 2011

I replaced the original Clarion speakers that have been on our boat for the last eleven years. The new speakers work beautifully, and were very easy to replace. Took about five minutes to replace each speaker. Although I purchased them last fall, today was the first time I had the opportunity to replace them as the boat was delivered from winter storage over the past weekend.

Clarion CM1625 Speakers

February 23, 2011

I need a pair of speakers to replace the old ones on my boat. I had to be an exact fit. I wasn't sure if these would work or not but after talking to the people at Sonic that assured me the would work I purchased them. They work great.

Easy to Install

January 21, 2011

The replacement units we purchased were easy to install and very attractive. We installed them late in the boating season. The sound is of a good quality and more time next summer will allow me the time we need to really understand just how much the sound quality has improved.

Ok for the $$

January 13, 2011

I bought these speakers to replace an older pair of the same model. The old ones lasted for 14 years and before they fall apart, sound pretty good. Iím not as happy with the CM1625. I will replace them with a higher quality next season.

Value speakers for the Marine Environment

January 4, 2011

These marine speakers were replacements for the exact same model. The originals were in our boat for four years and despite being enclosed and protected from heavy weather, had deformed and deteriorating cones with distorted sound.

These speakers replace my boats factory speakers. I hooked them up to a Sony XM604M Marine amp along with 2 other speakers and the sound quality was excellent. A big improvement. I can now hear decent sound while boat is in motion and very good sound when at rest.
