A perfect system starts off with perfect aftermarket car speakers. If you are a fanatic of a great sounding speaker, then the Rockford Fosgate Punch Series is meant for you. It is a full-range speaker with a flex-fit basket to ensure compatibility. By utilizing slots instead of single sized screw holes, allows for a slight adjustment of the speaker when mounted. This becomes useful if you are mounting the speakers in an odd shaped factory speaker location. The integrated concealed crossover hides the crossover inside the basket, decreasing and simplifying installation time. Minimizing the time between taking the speakers out of the box to installing them in your vehicle, the Punch speakers feature an OEM Adapter plate system that allows full-range speaker to fit in certain openings. The adapter plate features “break-away” tabs that can be removed to fit all speaker sizes.

The Punch series speakers feature VAST (Vertical Attach Surround Technique) which increases a speaker’s effective radiating cone area without complicating installation. The design eliminates the large flat glue surface area which allows the surround to be shifted for increased cone area. With this, nominal efficiency and maximum output capabilities are improved. The P1653 is a 6-1/2" 3-way speaker that has all the features mentioned above.

Rockford FTW

had these set up on a bench to make sure they worked well before they go in my truck and WOW i am again impressed with Rockford's performance!

Awesome Speakers!

This speakers fit nearly perfect in my 99 VW Passat. Only issue I ran into is that they were slightly over-sized. The lows, mids, and highs were clear! They even made my rear view mirror shake and my doors rattle a little.

If you want quality sound this is it.

This is a great looking speaker that will deliver clear pristine sound in such a wide range. I am still amazed. They were more than i expected.
And they fitted right in the door of my 99 chevy truck with no mods. Sound is awesome, head unit is a JVC KDR 600.

One Happy Customer

After purchase of Rockford Fosgate P1653 speakers from Sonic Electronix I am tremendously pleased with the quality of service they have shown me and tremendously happy with the quality of the product I purchased. However I am disappointed with some of the reviews I read on line before my purchase that almost caused me to be swayed from purchasing this product.
The reviews have mentioned a lack of BASS which in my opinion is the furthermost thing from the truth. These speakers are awesome and the BASS is adequate if not exceeds the expectations in delivery of sound from that size of speaker. Also the reviews stated it would not fit my 2006 GMC Sierra. That too is a lie because they fit great. Nonetheless despite my gripes with other people’s reviews I am glad I did the research myself and decided to buy this great product. I highly recommend both the product and the company I purchased it from which is SONIC Electronix. Thank you for the opportunity to express my thoughts on this great product.

Best Bang for the buck! @54

Bought 2 pairs for my 05 Sequoia doors using Alpine CDA105 & KTP 445 amp, EXcellent combo!!!

Awesome Speaker

These speakers do fit in the stock speaker location in the doors of my 2001 S10 w/ zero problems. Only thing i had to do was drill a few new holes. Overall these speakers sound great and give off a good amount of bass when turned up. I'm very happy with these speakers.

Very Surprised and Satisfied

I'll readily admit that i was a bit worried and apprehensive about getting these speakers. This is all because i never owned Rockford Fosgate products and because i thought that all the rave reviews for these speakers were just "hype". Well let me be the one to tell you that these speakers definitely deserve all the great reviews and more! The price for these speakers are great due to these speakers being more than their worth. The bass is very good matched with my Pioneer HU and the highs are crisp. Keep in mind that i have no amp and running these speakers strictly off of the headunit. Sonic Electronix is also a good online retailer with their prices and shipping. All my items were packaged very nice without anything missing. When my package arrived i immediately went to have the speakers installed to my rear deck and what a difference! The one con that i have though is that if i did install the speakers myself, then they would be a bit tricky but nothing major. I'm so excited about these speakers that i now want some components to replace my stock speakers in the front. I'll definitely be sure to not only get Rockford speakers but i will also order them from Sonic Electronix as well.

Great Value at $54 for 60 RMS

Made my own MDF brackets for 05 Sequoia since the cone is too big but they sounds awesome rating 10/10, no rattles or distortions. Thank you Sonic, I am buying more :)
