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.

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.

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.
Question Mark Icon of Question Mark
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.

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".

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.

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.

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.

Many brands group their products into series or lines of products to help customers know the level of quality (good, better, best for example). You can filter by series and the brand using our guided browsing.

    8" Speakers Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
    8’‘ speakers are audio drivers with a diameter of 8 inches, designed to reproduce sound across a wide range of frequencies. These speakers are popular for car audio upgrades due to their ability to deliver clear and powerful sound with enhanced bass response. The larger cone area of 8’‘ speakers allows them to move more air, resulting in improved low-frequency performance compared to smaller speaker sizes. This enhanced bass reproduction adds depth and richness to your music, making them an excellent choice for audiophiles and bass enthusiasts. Additionally, 8’‘ speakers often have higher power handling capabilities, allowing them to handle more power from amplifiers without distortion, resulting in a more dynamic and detailed sound experience.
    The fit of 8’‘ speakers in your car will depend on the specific make and model of your vehicle. While 8’‘ speakers are relatively common and can fit into many car audio systems, some vehicles may have non-standard speaker sizes or mounting configurations. Before purchasing 8’‘ speakers, it's essential to check the compatibility with your car's make and model. You can do this by measuring the existing speaker openings or consulting with an audio professional. If your car's speaker openings are not suitable for 8’‘ speakers, there are adapter plates available to make the installation possible. Sonic Electronix's AmpliFinder tool can also help you find 8’‘ speakers that are compatible with your vehicle for a seamless fit.
    Replacing your factory speakers with 8’‘ speakers can be done as a DIY project if you have some experience with car audio installations and are comfortable using basic tools. However, the difficulty of the installation can vary depending on your car's make and model, as well as any specific challenges in accessing the speaker locations. If you are unsure about the process or lack the necessary technical expertise, it's recommended to seek professional installation. Professional audio technicians have the expertise and tools to ensure a proper and secure fit, optimizing the performance of your 8’‘ speakers and preventing any potential damage to your car's audio system. Additionally, professional installation often comes with warranties, providing peace of mind knowing the job is done correctly.
    8’‘ speakers are well-suited for a wide range of music genres, thanks to their balanced sound performance and enhanced bass capabilities. Whether you enjoy listening to rock, pop, hip-hop, classical, or any other music style, 8’‘ speakers can deliver a compelling and enjoyable listening experience. These speakers handle both midrange and bass frequencies well, offering a full and detailed sound representation. Their ability to produce deep and punchy bass makes them particularly appealing for bass-heavy music like electronic dance music (EDM), hip-hop, and rap. Additionally, 8’‘ speakers can handle complex instrumental compositions and vocal performances with clarity and precision, making them a versatile choice for all music enthusiasts.
    Several essential features should be considered when selecting 8’‘ speakers for your car audio system. First, pay attention to the power handling capability, measured in watts RMS, which indicates the amount of power the speakers can handle continuously without distortion. Match the power handling of the speakers to your car's amplifier output for optimal performance. Secondly, consider the sensitivity rating, which tells you how efficiently the speakers convert power into sound. Higher sensitivity ratings mean the speakers require less power to produce the same volume, making them an excellent choice for lower-powered head units. Additionally, look for speakers with a wide frequency response range to ensure they can accurately reproduce both low and high frequencies. Lastly, choose speakers with high-quality materials for the cone and tweeters, such as polypropylene or silk, to ensure durability and excellent sound clarity.

The increased cone surface area allows for deeper bass response and improved midrange clarity, resulting in a well-balanced and immersive audio output.

    One of the key advantages of 8-inch speakers is their ability to handle higher power levels, making them ideal for audiophiles seeking an exhilarating listening experience.
