True 4 Ohm Impedance

These speakers are specially designed with true 4ohm technology. The impedance of these speakers are 3ohms, but when you pair them with thin factory wiring, the impedance will naturally rise up to a true 4ohms resulting in a maximum amount of power draw from your 4ohm rated factory receiver, aftermarket deck, or external amplifier. What it comes down to is efficiency. If you need a speaker that will get the most out of your current sound system, the Reference X series is for you.

Plus One Cone Technology

Each of the Reference X speakers features plus one woofer cone technology. This means the cone has been designed to be slightly larger than comparable speakers, giving you even more output on the same amount of power. This drastically increases the efficiency of the speaker, and also extends the frequency response even lower to give you that nice thump you’ve been looking for.

The Reference of Audio

Want an easy upgrade for your factory speakers without going over your budget? The Infinity Reference X Series is for you. Its engineered to bring your factory audio system to life, or to add clarity and depth to an aftermarket system. With innovative, patented technologies, and the kind of premium quality and construction that you would expect from the worlds top-selling premium car speaker brand, Infinity Reference X speakers will transform your listening experience into something amazing.

The Sound of quality

Sonic Electronix, one of the leaders in car audio, recently visited Harman, the premium global audio and infotainment group, at their research and development locations in Northridge, California and Detroit, Michigan. The purpose of these visits was to utilize and combine the powerful brand of Harman and the industry leading knowledge behind Sonic Electronix to begin working together on developing future car audio projects.

Speaker Specifications

This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Reference-X (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.
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" x 9"
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
300 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.
100 watts
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".
94 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).
46 - 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
Shallow Mount Installation
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.

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.
Hi-Res Audio Compatible
This feature refers to if the product is capable of Hi-Res Audio (HRA) playback.
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.

This is a good product all around so far. Installed them in my 04 tiburon and they sound great, only thing is that the tweeters stick out and hit the side panel a little bit and vibrate, Easy fix though. Have them powered to my 3000 watt amp with my sub and the highs are very crisp, tweeters sound great and the lows are solid not to mention they also have the push button for the +/- 3db which makes things a lot easier. I've never seen a cone on a pair of 6x9 that can move so much. Great product, for anyone looking to buy themselves a set of these speakers I would highly recommend it, they are well worth the price.

Fit 2015 Charger with minor modifications

June 13, 2016

I put these in the front doors and rear deck on my 2015 Charger Pursuit (with non-folding rear seat...what a pain in the ass to get to). I already had the Infinity Reference 3.5" speakers in the dash. It sounds great with my stock UConnect 5.0 head unit! I highly reccomend.

The front doors fit fine. The speakers in the rear deck needed the mounting holes slotted. Simple enough with a drill. You'll see the factory speakers had the slots as well. Also, I could only get 3 of 4 mounting screws in each speaker. Good enough for me, as I won't be adding an amp or sub so I'm not worried about vibration. The tweeters cleared just fine.

Wellsville, NY

for 2011 Charger

May 19, 2016

Bought these to replace the factory Alpine's on my '11 Charger (6 speaker system). They didn't quite fit, took some finessing and couldn't use the factory bolts. Dust covers obviously couldn't be used but the tweeters did clear everything barely, as they to stick out a little bit with the angled head. Did manage to get them in both the rear deck and front door panels with the screws that came with using the clips as a lock and snipped off the ends a bit since so long. The speakers were an improvement, but the bass was only really noticeable above volume 25. Sounds better with a CD or ipod than Sirius. However, just replacing the speakers didn't cut it for me. The system is still far too limited by the OEM amp band passing. The speakers could be great if they were powered by an AEM amp run through an LOC like the LC7i. If you can't afford to upgrade more of the system, I wouldn't bother buying speakers (for the Chargers) they are just too limited. The highs are much improved but I wanted a better stage and much deeper, harder, crisp bass response. I will be adding an LC7i, 5ch amp, and 10" sub to the system shortly.

Very Harsh

April 2, 2016

I got 3.5 inch Infinity for dash and 6x9 infinity for front door.
High is very harsh. I did 20 hours burn in to see if it will change, but it is not. If you put your ear close to speaker for 10 seconds with not too high volume, your ear literally hurts. I installed Pioneer on the rear door and it does not hurt my ear at all.
Mid is very retracted, and Mid-bass is not existence. I used to own Infinity InterLude 30 tower speaker, and it has very similar characteristics.
High - emphasized and metallic, not natural.
Mid - retracted
Bass - not too bad in higher volume.

It has very high efficiency but in lower volume, you only hear ear-aching highs.

I will be replacing this with Pioneer which I had in my older car.

Best Answer: If you mean the wire harness to plug into your stock harness, then no. Needs to be purchased unless you want to cut and splice. Hope that helped.
