Priced Per Pair

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"
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.

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.
Injection Molded Polypropylene (IMPP)
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.
120 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".
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).
40 - 32000 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.
2-1/2"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches, required to contain the speaker.
Hi-Res Audio Compatible
This feature refers to if the product is capable of Hi-Res Audio (HRA) playback.
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.

egh...better then stock

August 6, 2011

first set of aftermarket speakers and for the price they are better then stock but i didn't see a huge difference... had to drill new holes to make them (barely) fit in the stock hole. I would never pay anywhere near $400 for these things but they are decent.

Well.. Not sure

May 20, 2011

I bought a German car, its cost me thousands in repairs so far, and is in the shop now...Bought these "handmade German" speakers here and hoped to be surprised. I was,,, just like I am about my car...
Theyre in a chevy 1500 (doors) with stock ( actually very good) headunit, no amp. Yes, they sound better than the stock speakers. No, they arent "audiophile" quality. Maybe if they are amped? Bass is "ploppy"- had to turn down the low to hear them- the rest is OK at best. Im not real sure a Walmart Jensen pair wouldnt be better? Im thinking they'd be a good set of high/mids with the proper amplification, but Im not ripping out my system (new truck) to do that. Im also hoping that after a while they'll break-in and maybe sound will improve? I feel very sorry for the folks who paid $399 for them new, Maxxsonics should give them a credit/refund! At $67 w/ free shippingthey were worth a try, they are the back doors of my truck, intensionally, so if they werent too good no big deal. Im still looking for a good pair for the front, with a little bass capability, definitely not these MX6 tho!

Lets get that rating up

January 8, 2012

Lets be clear here. The nominal power rating on these speakers is 60-120 watts. They NEED to be amped. I would not recommend these for anyone who would be hooking them up to a head unit. It's a shame to see some of the negative reviews on here when the owner isn't even giving the speaker the power it needs to reproduce frequencies correctly.

I have these speakers amped in my rear doors on a dodge durango 2001 at 100 watts per speaker. I only wish I had more juice to give them, although I am afraid they might punch right through the door if I did. I have a set of Polk Audio DB6501 component speakers in the front and the Mercurys are every bit as clear and responsive on the high end, even more so on the low end. Would definitely suggest sound dampening with these speakers. I was looking for a speaker that would give me some quality rear fill behind the drivers seat and could keep up with the Polks (not easy with the polk tweeter mounted right next to my face). Even nestled down near the floor, I can make out these speakers clearly (and feel them slap me in the back). After turning my volume almost all the way up (and nearly blowing my eardrums) I experienced very little distortion from them (maybe none at all if I gave them the full 120 watts). This is a good, quality set of speakers, and for 60 bucks? Come on, buy them already.

Everything has negatives, however. In this case, I would say that the design is minimal and the grilles are hardly impressive. If you are mounting them out of sight, this should mean crap to you.

Speaker basket appears to be constructed out of some kind of heavy duty plastic composite. I had initial concerns that the plastic might be too weak of a material, but the speakers feel sturdy regardless, and appear to be holding up just fine.

Slightly, slightly larger than your average 6.5 inch speaker. They fit fine with the Dodge OEM speaker spacer, but you may have to modify your stock speaker location a bit or create a spacer for them. Depth wise, they are no worse than any other speaker. Measure, measure, measure before you buy. There are a ton of mounting holes around the rim of the speaker. Don't worry about being able to screw it in.

Came with no included anything whatsoever. I realize they are marked down from 399.99 (who comes up with these prices?) but seriously, nothing but screws and the speakers. I always have wire and terminals on hand so no biggie, but be aware.

Bottom Line: Loud, Crystal Clear, Good Thump, excellent price. These would not be out of place in a competition level setup.

These speakers are loud for the price

November 28, 2012

These speakers are the first aftermarket speakers I have installed into my SUV they bump pretty nice. Sound quality is good as well. Although I think after installing these I want a new subwoofer that hits a wider range to complement these speakers.

not worth it

February 28, 2012

I bought two pairs of mx6 and hooked it up to my dvd head unit and but only hooked up 1 pair and 1 speaker failed within 2 - 3 minutes on just 17 to 30 watts. Only the dome tweeter played, I would not recommend anyone to buy this product.

These are AMAZING!

October 23, 2010

I am a borderline audiophile and I have owned many different speakers over the years. Infinity Kappas, Clarion, Polk, Alpine, and other less known brands. I am a big fan of Polk Audio because of their clarity in reproducing mids and highs. If you look closely at the spectrum on these MX6's you'll see that they are up there with the Polks and other top marks. I took a chance on them and am very happy I did. They sound superb straight from an Alpine head unit. It would not be fair to judge these with anything but an excellent source.

There is a review here that claims the sound on these is "horrible". I couldn't disagree more. Do your research, and if you appreciate high quality sound, consider these. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!

mx6

April 14, 2012

2 pairs installed in a chevy trailblazer. Other than that they did not drop right in (had to trim a little plastic on the factory mounts) they sound great on the factory radio. The wifey did not want to change out the radio because it is a 6 disc changer and has the dual zone in the back. These speakers are made very well and should last the life of the car but yes I do agree they were made to put some power to. With just the factory power its a walk in the park for the mx6. The ease of use is low simply due to the cutting.
