Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Reference (Infinity)
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.
Pair
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"
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.

Textile
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.
Plus One woofer cones
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.
180 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.
60 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".
92 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).
53 - 21000 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.
3 ohms
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.

Now music sounds good!

April 7, 2017

Installed this speaker on 2015 Mazda6 along with DIY MDF baffle and sound deadnings. This speaker has really sweet highs thanks to Silk dome construction, and I now can enjoy listening to female vocals in my car. With high sensitivity, it seems to work very well with the standard head unit came with the car. Very satisfied.

For Mazda6, I needed to make a baffle in order to install. A plastic one can be bought, but wood (MDF) should be a better option. Durability is unknown since it's been in a car for a week.

Great quality for price.

March 24, 2018

The boyfriend suggested these for a mid range price good sounding speaker for my Yukon XL. I'm not disappointed at all. Eventually might upgrade for time being and foreseeable future they meet and exceed my expectations for the price.

2014 wrangler speaker upgrade

February 27, 2018

These worked great! with the brackets included for the wrangler everything fit good. the only thing I didn't like was the instructions. There are photos of all the different speakers. Find your photo and try to install it. After spending a hour to find the right install for the fit I needed. they went right in. I can now hear the sound coming out of my sound bar behind my head. Best upgrade I could have done for the money.

Infinity- Enough said !!

February 23, 2018

After getting some Infinity components for the front, I loved them so much I wanted to replace my rear coaxials with Infinity as well. These did not disappoint. Running them off 100 watts crossed over at 80 HZ. They are so loud and clear. I can't imagine any coaxial sounding better !!

Does it come with mounting adapter?
A shopper on Dec 15, 2017
Best Answer: I’m not entirely sure what you mean but they do come with mounting brackets (shown in photo). My cars have always been set up for 6.5 inch speakers and had mounts included so I have never needed them. If you need a mount so these can fit in a 6x9 speaker slot than no, you will need to purchase those separately. Pro tip - be sure to mount coaxial speakers so the tweeters are angled at the driver’s seat!

what kind of wire do I need to install in my door speakers in my car door?
Larry K on Apr 28, 2017
Best Answer: it depends on what your car currently uses. Typically you need a vehicle specific adopter for easy installation, or just splice the existing wire to connect the new speaker. For the latter method, butt connectors, crimp-on connector and 18G or thinner speaker wire would be probably enough (and wire cutter).

How do you make the center textile tweeters work? I have the speaker hooked up right but the both center tweeter don't work.
Irvin R on May 16, 2017
Best Answer: center tweeters are prewired and when you hook the wires up to the speaker , if the speaker is working try toggling the selector switch for tweeter . if they still don't work speaker has a defect or they have been blown .
