Speaker Specifications

This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Xenith (Cadence)
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.
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 Component System
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.
250 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".
91 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).
60 - 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.
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.
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.

Wow! Very Impressed!

July 15, 2015

I am seriously impressed with these speakers. I honestly am kicking myself right now for all the money I wasted on more expensive speakers. I got these for my wife who just picked up a 2013 Nissan Rogue base model. The stereo was junk and the speakers were beyond junk. Being the base model, it did not even have tweeters in the dash. The front speakers were just 6x9 dual cone paper woofer/tweeters.

I first put in a Pioneer deck and that sounded marginally better. Not wanting to spend a lot of money on this stereo (since my wife really could care less) I picked these up to give them a try.

First, they have a higher sensitivity which is nice running off of a pioneer deck with no amp. They get loud. They are clear. I am also impressed with the frequency response. Very nice midrange and midbass response. It was much more than I was expecting from these. I was expecting to loose some bass moving from a 6x9 to a 6.5 speaker, but these definitely kick (especially with the kick drums). The highs are nice and clear through the silk dome tweeters and they are not harsh (I do like my tweeters bright...but these are nice and smooth).

The tweeters come with many different options for mounting, of which I used the surface mounts. The mounting hardware could be better, but it is sufficient. They mount kind of loose, so a bit of silicone caulk will hold them together.

If you are going to run a set of components off of deck power, you really can't go wrong with this for under $50. These really surprised me!

Overall, I am very happy. They are a great value. They are attractive speakers as well. The crossovers are very basic, but they are easy to install (it is all pre wired) and small enough to mount almost anywhere.

El Cheapo componenets. Good or trash?

March 4, 2017

I have been into car audio now for 26 years. So I know what I like and what I don't like when it comes to mids and highs for my car. Because of this, I have never purchased speakers that I did not listen to first, until now.

Being on a very tight budget, and being VERY tired of the 12 year old speakers in my 2005 Dodge Neon I decided to take the plunge and buy this set of components without hearing them first. I mean, they can't be worse than the stock 12 year old speakers, can they?

These are connected to a new Kenwood in dash CD player with no other amplification. Right away I noticed they were not as sensitive as the stock speakers, so they don't play as loud. I also noticed that even though these have a soft dome tweeter, the highs were sharper and more harsh than what I was expecting. Luckily, my deck has a 13 band parametric EQ so I was able to tone the tweeters down over the 8k hz range. Vocals were suprisingly clean and frequency response seemed smooth down to the 100 hz range where things quickly started breaking up (most likely due to the lack of power). However since I am running a subwoofer and have 6X9s in the rear deck, I crossed the components over as high pass at 120 hz and 18 db/octave and things sound good. The wires coming out of the crossovers are also very short thus limiting mounting options. I mounted the tweeters in the stock dash speaker locations and put the mids in the stock door locations but I had to lengthen some wires to make them reach.

So in short, these are cheap compnents. For a majority of people, they will absolutely love them. For those with a good ear, they need a good EQ to flatten the response and tame the highs down then they are bareable. For those of us old farts that are loosing our hearing, put an amp on it and you will be satisfied.

Was suggested by a co worker with a large system purchased here. Also very reasonably priced.
Carson S on Jun 9, 2016
How to install? I've never seen crossovers like this... with only 1 pair of wires into crossover and 1 pair of wires out. (crossovers usually have inputs from amp + outputs to woofer + outputs to tweeter). No install guide included. Help? Thanks in advance
Monashee on Oct 21, 2016
Best Answer: This crossover will have 3 sets of wires.
1.Signal- to be hooked up to the wires that go to your factory speaker.
2. Mid woofer- these wires will go to your new 6.5 speaker
3. Tweeter signal- these wires will go to your new tweeter.
If you have factory tweeters in your car, tuck away the factory tweeter wires cause u wont need to add them to this installation. Personally if you don't have an amp you might not have enough power to push these speakers to the max. They will still sound louder than your factory gear for sure.
