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.
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.

High Density Layered Diaphragm
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.
Highly Oriented Polyolefin (HOP)
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.
190 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.
40 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).
30 - 25000 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.
1-3/4"
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.
2-3/32"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5" x 5"

Surprisingly good for an inexpensive speaker

July 7, 2009

I purchased 2 pair of these speakers to replace the paper whizzer cone factory speakers in my 1990 motorhome. They were a great improvement over the stock speakers, which I expected. What I didn't expect from such an inexpensive speaker, was just how good they sound. They are quite clear and produce a nice, open, soundstage - quite a shock considering the price I paid. Highs and midranges are good and clear, and even the bass is better than expected. I'm running these un-amped with a newer Jensen head unit. These speakers are perfect for what I'm using them for - Nice tunes while sightseeing the country. Installation was super easy with the multi-fit mounting holes. I couldn't be happier. For perspective, I've installed aftermarket sound systems in all my vehicles for the past 35 years - some quite expensive, so to be impressed by $30 a pair speakers was quite a surprise for me. I wasn't expecting much, just wanted an "improvement". I got nice sound for little $$$! I gave the "Durability rating" a 3, not because there was a problem, but because I've only owned them 2 weeks and couldn't leave this field blank.

Nice, Full Sounding Speakers for Little Price Tag

March 9, 2009

These guys are running off my 17 by 4 watt RMS Head unit, and sound great. The highs and mids are quite clear, and after a week or so, the low end really began to become present. They won\'t rattle the door panels, but the sound is rich and dull. They also have a tweeter housing that\'s flush with the surround, so mounting them in certain OEM locations is really easy. They also have a nice heavy feeling to them, which makes them (at least to me) feel they are of a higher quality than the price would let on. Highly recommend them if you want to get a fairly sensitive budget speaker.

An Impresive-sounding low cost speaker

March 6, 2009

I had two of these installed in my car, but returned them thinking I could find something better. I wish I hadn\'t. As I tried other speakers, I realized that these played with more high-end clarity and better low-end response then some speakers that cost twice as much. The had a nice, heavy feeling to them, and even the cloth surround felt better than most. I loved the flush height of the tweeter housing - it makes installation in tight places a snap. Give them a week or so of playing, and they will break in and have a nice full sound. I was running them off a 17 by 4 RMS Sony H/U. Not amped.
