Component speakers are a type of car speaker that allows for more flexibility in terms of installation. Unlike traditional car speakers, component speakers are not all housed in a single unit. Instead, the tweeter, mid-range, and woofer are all separate units that can be installed in different locations in the car.
This allows for a more customized sound system that can be tailored to the specific acoustics of the car. Additionally, component speakers typically have better sound quality than traditional car speakers.
Passenger Vehicles · Component System · 6. 5″ · 6″ x 9″ The ideal balance of a high end car audio system requires the perfect mix of speaker tone, deep bass impact and clean undistorted power. The Formula line offers a high end sound quality though a full line of aluminum dome tweeters with polypropylene cone speakers.
These components can be matched with 400 watt peak power, dual 4 ohm subwoofers to command the deep bass frequencies all powered by the Q-Stasis circuitry amplifiers in the Formula line up.
I installed them in a GMC van so the woofers are mounted low and the tweeters I mounted high. All custom enclosures. Anyway, they really do sound good at lower listening levels. Its when I turn them up that I don’t care for them.
Not sure what’s going on but they hurt my ears and not in a good way. I have a lot of variables that may not be applicable to your situation. Again, this could be my vehicle, my amp, my head unit, etc.
Great sounding speakers chose these over JBL only due to MB Quarts could handle more power. Installed these with my aftermarket radio pushing 20 watts per channel, they sound great and even better at almost full volume.
I plan on hooking to my 4 channel amp 50 watts per channel, then these should really rock my 11 chevy 1500. Btw: make your life easier for chevy trucks get the door speaker adapters for best fit option for the woofer.

All I use now is Rockville, trying to get a sponsorship with them. I have everything Rockville. I will compete this year. I recently bought the 12″ subwoofer with 2000rms. By far amazing, I replaced this one 12 ” sub for my 2 SKAR 18″ SUBS.
It hits way way better, I’m gonna get 3 more of the 12s. My boy has a 12″ sundown with 2000rms he paid 1000. 00 for. He is mad because I paid a quarter of that and sounds way better. I have I have now 10 Rockville speakers, 2 Rockville amps, 1 Rockville equalizer.
My car sounds amazing. Thanks guys I cant wait to get my 3 other 12″ subs already building my custom box for all 4-12s I’m gonna blow away the competition this year if we can get past this pandemic. So Rockville when I place in the top 3 of my class in the bass festival, I am gonna want some help from you guys with some sponsorship.
I’m a hard working 30yr electrician, so let’s see what it will take for you guys to lend a hand. I really want 2-15s and 4-12s in my car. Need way more power then what I have so let’s see if I can get a few subs and some larger amps.
I will send you guys some pictures and a few trophies. Let’s get this done.
Great speakers. I have a set on my pick up truck. They sound awesome. They take alot off power, so i upgraded my alternator. Now they sound even better!! Im getting another set soon. I have had them for almost 2 years already and the paper cone is worn in just abit, but they are still going strong.
The quality of these drivers is quite good especially considering the price. Sound quality is crisp clean and detailed and very natural. I chose the – 6 db output for the tweeter as it to much more efficient than the woofer.
Overall I’m very happy with my new speakers and plan to buy another set soon.
The T2652-S 6. 50″ is an alternative component system to the T1 with a major difference being a Billet aluminum phase plug to enhance cooling. The woofer features the same VAST surround having up to 25% increased cone area and a Flex Fit Basket for easy mounting.
Another difference is the aluminum Dome Neo-Tweeter for Fanatics who prefer this type of tonal quality over the T1. The same external audiophile crossover is used, configurable for single or bi-amp configurations.
The Rockford Fosgate T2 components sound way better than the amount you pay for them. I am noticing details and flaws in my music I have never heard before. Like other people have said they get loud and clear when you amplify them properly, I have mine with 100 RMS/channel.
These are some of the best sounding speakers Ive heard, period. I have listened to a lot of brands (JL, Focal, Alpine and others) and I put these up there with Focal polyglass. They have super smooth tweets and the mids are awesome! They also have a great low end and can handle the lows very well.
I first had punch series and blew a tweet so I upgraded to these and I couldnt be happier. I have them in a 97 chevy ext cab in the front doors. I had them in the stock location to start with but recently built fiberglass door pods into my door panels for better imaging and made the pods little sealed boxes and WOW the woofers turned into little subs!! My god they pound and sound great! The imaging in the stock location was good but I wanted great so I did custom work.
they come with switches for on/off axis and -2,0,and+2 for tweeter attenuation. they are also bi-ampable but havent tried that yet so cant report on that. For the record Im running a massive 800. 4 on mine at 100 watts RMS and they can take everything my amp can give em.
Grab a set and you wont be sorry, especially for what Sonic is selling them for!!.
they do require 100 watt of rms power to be worth the money, large magnet and spyder take power to move, they do get crazy loud and clean. not something to use in a sq build, but if you wanna be loud, they are great.
Great speakers, but don’t use supplied wires! And make sure you keep connections separate. Then you will have the perfect sound system. Installed in one hour. 10th gen civic hatchback. With alpine head unit.
All Alpine! Subwoofer, amp, speakers. If I wasn’t deaf before, I will be now! Thanks for the great speakers.
Excellent product, at first I was concerned about fitting on my 2016 Town & Country Minivan (Rear speakers) and yes, fit perfectly. itss not touching the car metal. Pro: Great quality, clear sound. I have an alpine radio and the bundle really makes a good sound experience.
Cons: It does not come with speaker wires, I would recommend buying the aftermarket speaker connectors.
5 Stars. all your music will sound so much clear and crisp. I’ve had factory speakers for almost five years and this is a big improvement for my first installation. A very great product for a fair price and excellent quality.
Revolutionize your car audio system when you install these 2 Hifonics 6. 5 Inch 2 Way 400 Watt Component Speakers Systems. Each system comes with a pair of speakers, 12 dB in line crossover, all tweeter mounting hardware, and grills for midwoofers.
The 6. 5 inch speakers feature 60 watts of RMS power and 400 watts of maximum power handling. The neo mylar, soft dome, impact resistant tweeter elements provides clear highs to the 1 inch tweeter while handling plenty of power.
The component speaker system also features rubber, moisture resistant rubber surround with high mid bass impact and lightweight, rigid, alpha cellulose cones for speed and deep bass.
Overall these mids pretty hit low and tweets can scream. Tied in with there coax cousins in the back doors and the factory jbl 8 running off Kenwood x700. 1 5 channel. They handle well. Even keep up nicely with 2 W3s running off a Fosgate 750.
1d with a JVC 340bt on eq and processing. Im is really happy with how they are fitting into my time alignment with ease. I recommend these for anyone from the budget builder and beginners as well as the audiophiles and bass heads.
As far as that budget Ive got 66 bucks in 4 doors. The difference I saved easily paid for my sound deadening I just did. HighphonicsPower from the Gods????.
sound good , a brand name ( alpine , kicker ) was well over twice the price and probably didn’t sound twice as good. I wanted to use the nice looking tweeters on the door panel but I couldn’t get a secure mount , so I ended up using a different tweeter mounted on the steel door frame ( since cutting my cardboard panel was not a secure mount ).
a better 2 piece tweeter cup would have allowed that type of mounting. But for $33 its a great deal !.
This components and coax set sounds great and the crossovers work great. However high phonics needs to make better manuals and instructions to include. I’ve got 25 Years experience with audio so all I need is the specs but some people would have issues especially with components setups.
Theyre Finally Here, & They Sound Fantastic! Whether you are an established audio guru or replacing your speakers for the first time, you will soon be immersed in the nuance and warmth of your music like never before.

Put these VSP 6x9s in my 2016 Chrysler 300 on a Rockford Fosgate Punch 1000×5 with the x series 12 n man the sound quality is amazing. I tried these without the sub for a few days and they have great bass felt like I had a 8in sub already in the trunk and they have crystal clear highs.
For the price you really cant beat them. My old infinity kappas were louder but were 3x the price.
Purchased two sets of these (Front and Rear) and when given the power they recommend, they are awesome! The extreme high frequencies are a tad soft but the snare drum frequency snaps like none other! I first hooked them up with the HU just to see what they would sound like and.
lets just say not anything to be excited about. but. When given the 100 watts RMS recommends power!!! Yeah buddy they come alive!! Very impressed in the price range and have become an NVX fan for sure! Also, Sonic Electronix was very easy to deal with and will definitely be back for more purchases in the future ????.
The Skar Audio SPX-65C 2-way 6. 5″ component speaker system is our highest performance offering in the category, with unmatched sound quality and breathtaking power output. Rated at 400 watts max power, sold as a pair.
I bought two sets of the spx-65c components last tax season. I finally saved enough money to finish the install with two evl-12 rp2000. 1 and Sundown Audio 200. 4 running the fpx 6. 5c’s. The spx-65c crossovers are garbage! 3 of the four crossovers shorted out the second day.
if I don’t get a reply I’ll never buy skar again. Sundown crossovers are about to be otw.
Great components considering the price, power handling and sq. I upgraded to these from Focal K2’s and didn’t expect to be this satisfied- But I am! Excellent power handling. Balanced sound staging with warm midrange.
Crossovers also allow control of the brightness of the tweeter. They are no Focal’s but you can’t beat the sq for this price. You will be satisfied all things considered.

I replaced some pioneer components with these and wow they sound great. They are super clear and have a great soundstage. I am running subwoofer with them also. Very well built and goes with my 80prs audiophile head unit very well.
I have them running on a kenwood m3004 amp at 50 watts rms each. These are the real deal too because ABT is an authorized Focal dealer and i called Focal to verify that they are real. Just really love how clean and clear they sound on my system.
I installed these in my 2011 GMC Terrain SLT-2. I replaced the Pioneer Premium System with the 165AS Components, and coaxials. Everything is still running off of the OEM radio, but my goodness these sound great.
The clarity on these are phenomonal for not being powered by an amplifier. Can’t wait to install one, and hear these really play out to their full potential. I highly recommend these.
I really cannot tell a ton of difference with these. Also, went in physically 2 days prior, and was guaranteed a 10 am spot. I am from out of town and had an afternoon planned with my family. I went in that morning, and someone had just walked in, and was in line in front of me, she got my spot, the technician was assigned to her right in front of me.
We sat and waited at my brothers house until 6PM, we called, and they said it should be done before closing,. When we got there, they were still piecing it together, while shutting down shop. They told me there was nothing intelligent they could say to make it better.
That was it. Since then, my car died in a parking lot, because they did not tighten the stinger cable to my battery, left it loose and it killed my car. I had to wait for help to get my car going again.
Also, about 2 times a week, when I start my car, there is a crackling noise, and only the woofer works. I have to restart my car several times before the system works again. I sent a request in via their contact form, and no response.
Terrible experience. I will next be going to Yelp, Google, etc.
Description: The versatile speaker upgrade with incredible sound tech. The new S-Series Speakers have been newly designed with upgrades to voice coil size and cone material to provide great sound quality.
The S-Series speakers are the new benchmark for entry OEM upgrades. INCREASED DRIVING POWER AND CONTROL The S-Series speakers have a large voice coil. The 6. 5-inch and 6×9-inch models have a 35-mm voice coil, and this large voice coil size increases their driving power and control of the motor.
The S-Series speakers are the first in the industry to use a material called CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic), a very lightweight yet rigid material. On a standard, off-the-shelf oval cone, the edges are naturally weaker than the center due to the elongated shape.
Since the CFRP material is directional, it can be manipulated during the molding process to strengthen the areas of the cone that are normally weak. The result is rigidity throughout the cone that delivers accurate and efficient performance.
The ability to manipulate the CFRP material during the molding process is currently exclusive to Alpine and the S-Series speakers. Alpine has three patent-pending procedures in support of this innovative manufacturing process.
INCREDIBLE LINERITY AND ACCURACY Alpines patented H. A. M. R. (High Amplitude Multi-Roll) surround is now found on the S-Series speakers. This proven technology increases excursion while maintaining accuracy and linearity.
The multi-roll design allows for an even unfolding of the surround which creates incredible linearity and colorization rejection. SMOOTH, WIDE FREQUENCY RESPONSE The 1-inch silk dome is perfect for recreating pleasant upper range response without creating listening fatigue in the vehicle.
The soft silk material ensures wide frequency response and durability for long term playback. PROTECTION FOR YOUR SPEAKERS Speaker grilles are available for several of the S-Series speakers and are sold separately.
Top-mount depth: 2-1/4 inch Specifications: Speaker Rating: Max RMS Power Capacity: 80W per speaker Peak Power Capacity: 240W per speaker.
I bought these to replace a set of Rockford Fosgate R1675-S components that were way to bright and had absolutely no mid range. I’m much happier with these with a much more well rounded sound and softer tweeters.
The fact that I found an open box made it that much better. Overall, I’m much happier with these and they seemed higher quality and the crossover was easier to install.
Great Sounding 6. 5 component speakers. They put out a LOT of bass, great resolution and clarity to the sound, The highs can get a little harsh but a quick EQ down on the top end will fix that. They also can be powered off a stock head unit, even better off a aftermarket one.
I have not used them on a amp but I suspect they would sound amazing.
Instant upgrade from standard speakers but. You then start thinking if a more powerful deck eg 50watts per chanel will make them sing. Not the same quality of hifi 20 years ago, but tech and flexibility overides sound quality now, we have to accept that.
Good price, decent build, splits sound better than coax. Also, crossover not great, get the better model with a real crossover box (not just one filliament capacitor) if you can pay $40 more.
Year after year, car after car, options like this Reference Series REF-6530cx 6-1/2″ component speaker system remain a popular choice for replacing factory speakers because of their competitive pricing and superb sound.
Edge-driven dome tweeters With this component system, you’ll gain exceptional clarity and imaging, thanks to separate 3/4″ edge-driven textile dome tweeters that subdue any harshness in the high-frequency range.
Infinity includes external crossovers that give you push-button tweeter attenuation for a “brightness” quick fix. Bigger woofers The Reference Series polypropylene woofer with its durable hi-roll rubber surround ensures you’ll enjoy powerful sound every mile you drive.
Its oversized cone moves more air than other speakers of similar size, adding plenty of punch to the speaker’s impressive performance. Bring on the power You can power these speakers with up to 90 watts of RMS power – they’ll work well with an external amplifier, but they’re also a good match for a factory radio or aftermarket stereo.
Plus, these 3-ohm speakers combine with the speaker wire in your vehicle so your car stereo sees actual 4-ohm impedance, so you get a little more volume out of your system.
Tweeter fell out of mount and was laying on the floor board while I was on vacation. Now I have to return to the store in Plano, TX to have it repaired. Speakers were installed about two weeks ago. The Infinity speakers are great, but the install had issues.
Plus One polypropylene woofer cones provide increased cone area of up to 35% by moving the attachment point between the surround and the frame outward. This provides superior output and performance when used as an upgrade to a factory system and also with aftermarket amplifiers.
Engineered to Fit-Close attention to fitment is paramount to the success of this speaker family. Vented basket Frame design-The super-rigid vented baskets help to cool the voice coils making for a reliable speaker.
The benefits are lower distortion at high output levels, a longer lasting speaker and higher power handling. These speakers are voiced against each other to ensure each line has the consistent JBL sound signature that’s known and sought out by those who care about their audio.
6-1/2″Two-Way Car Audio Component system w/ Crossover (No GRILL) that deliver world-class JBL performance and superior fit into most factory speaker locations. Benefits and features include: Plus One Woofers Cones, Edge-driven dome tweeter, Engineered to Fit, External Crossover with 0/+2dB Tweeter level control, Vented basket Frame design, and Competitively tuned.
A High-Performance multi-element speakers and component systems.
One of the best splits ive used in a while for the price range, purchased 2 sets for my cars and have reccomended all my friends to buy them for budget sound upgrades. Would i buy them again? Definately will!!.
Dieci car audio systems let you realize a high quality audio system with the utmost in simplicity. The woofers employ the exclusive V-cone profile for amazing off-axis response and detailed mid-high range.
The TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) surround ensures linearity and reduction of unwanted resonance, even at high excursion. High-performance materials, such as the neodymium motor assembly and the PEI membrane, ensure an extended high frequency range.
The passive filters are found directly on the supplied connection cables, along with a rich array of accessories increasing the install-friendliness and installation time.
My first try with this brand and Im less not even remotely impressed. Sound is just okay. for the money there are definitely better options out there. Tweets are very bright, crossed over a bit high in my opinion.
Wires coming out of the crossover are really cheap, and are a very small gauge. Mid driver seems to be well made, tweeter seems solid as well, but cross over and wiring are very cheap. I would look at other options if you are in the market.
The Pyle PLG6C speakers are designed to provide the best quality sound for the budget minded enthusiast. You’ll be blasting your tunes and rocking the block with this component speaker kit. It includes 1-pair of 6.
5 ft. mid bass speakers, 1-factory system. The mid bass speakers pump with 400-Watt of power and fit in most OEM locations. The 100-Watt, 0. 5 ft. silk dome tweeters have 3 mounting options and a frequency response from 1.
3 to 22 kHz. Use the passive crossover networks to separate the signal from your headunit between the mid bass and tweeter speakers for a richer, more accurate sound. The Pyle PLG64 speakers are designed to provide the best quality sound for the budget minded enthusiast.
This 6. 5 ft. woofer has 300-Watt of pure power supported by a 1 ft. high temperature voice coil to boost the low end. Hear the rumbling lows of your favorite music thanks to the 30 oz. magnet structure.
The non fatiguing butyl rubber surround and yellow color poly injected cone provide a sturdy foundation for keeping your sound crystal clear and distortion free. To boost performance, these speakers have been equipped with a strong capacitor, meaning your speakers will never struggle for power.
These speakers look cool, too, thanks to the yellow coated steel basket.
These speakers sound awesome if used with another typical set of speakers as they do a great job on the bass and the highs but need some backup to fill in the mids. The crossovers seem to cut out some key frequencies that I didn’t even notice until I played Enter Sandman from Metallica.
The speakers did quite well cranking out the powerful bass riff and the symbols but once the guitar riff started, I could hardy hear it. As far as some saying these speakers lack bass, that’s only true if your accustomed to trunk rattling lows that aren’t naturally produced by any musical instrument anyways or if you enjoy listening to explosions, but they do a very good job for musically natural bass.
As far as the lacking mids, I guess that’s one of the drawbacks of a two way crossover setup designed to send the lows to the woofer and the highs to the tweeter because it leaves nowhere for the mid frequencies to go.
Now before you go and buy these know this: these are budget speakers. Now with that said, they are quite amazing. I bought these simply for an upgrade, and with the crossovers they blow my stock speakers out of the water.
The only complaint I have is that they were much larger than expected, and I had to “customize” them a bit to make them fit in my door. Now about the sound itself: excellent. The bass hits pretty hard (although the extremely low frequencies don’t come through, and I’d say they really don’t go down to 50 hz) and the tweeter’s highs are very crisp and clear.
Overall I’m exremely happy with them. If they had more bass I’d definitely buy a second pair to put in my back window, but I guess I’ll have to invest in some subs instead. Another thing: the yellow is AWESOME, and I love how they look in general.
I bought a set of these because my stock speakers sounded like mud. I am driving them with a 4 channel, 400 watt amp. The sound shocked me. The clarity is excellent. My music has taken on a 3D sound.
Almost like the music is floating. I have been listening to the same CD for years, and after instalation of this set, I heared things I had never heared before. I am very impressed. I will be buying another set for my car, and then 2 more sets for my other car.
Upgrade your vehicle’s sound system with these MB Quart Formula series 6. 5′′ two-way car speakers. The WideSphere technology creates a large sweet spot for all listeners, while the aluminum dome tweeters deliver high output, extended frequency response and natural music reproduction.
Handles up to 140W maximum power Provides rich sound. 55Hz – 20kHz frequency response Accurately produces a wide range of sound. Lightweight thermal-formed polypropylene cones Deliver impactful bass with minimal cone flex.
Aluminum dome tweeter Offers natural-sounding high-frequency response, while the WideSphere technology allows the tweeter to develop a wider listening area for off-axis listening. 4-ohm impedance Conducts power evenly to keep the speaker at the appropriate level.
5. 59′′ x 5. 59′′ cutout dimensions The shallow basket depth makes installation easier.
I just received my order and I’m very happy with the purchase. The only reason I’m not able to give all 5 star’s is due to the add says 280 Watt and the speakers say 140. But I’m not gonna be close to max watts.
Thanks for the great quality and price. I definitely recommend them.
Truly great audio is a pleasure that few people experience in the automotive environment – but you can. The Infinity Kappa Series 60. 11cs 6-1/2-inch (165-millimeter) two-way component speaker system takes the sound in your car to a whole new dimension.
The Infinity brand has a pedigree of technological innovation in reference-quality audio reproduction and much of that technology is ingrained in these speakers. The system’s woofer features patented formed-glass-fiber Plus One (U.
S. patent no. 7 548 631) cones in proprietary Injected Carbon Glass Matrix (iCGM) frames. The system’s low-hysteresis polyproplyene capacitors and low-loss air-core inductors in the passive filter networks are of ultrahigh quality.
The system’s 3/4-inch (20-millimeter) tweeter is a soft-dome edge-driven fabric diaphragm for improved power handling and wide high-frequency dispersion. Even the soft-touch rubberized finish on the protective grilles shows attention to detail.
The Infinity Kappa 60. 11cs components have what it takes to turn any car’s audio system into a high-fidelity audio lover’s dream system. Onlinecarstereo is a long time authorized online retailer of Infinity products.
great sounding speakers i have a few tips for people get a good spacer that fits your car or a generic ring. probly common sense but i got one made for a toyota that looked like it would work on my car and keep a stock look and.
ahhhh watch the tweeter wire when mounting. they will pull out and break. i had to cut out an extra hole/slot in the sail panel i installed it in. for more volume and full sound put the mid on the connectors with the input wire.
experiment where you want the tweeter wire to go for best sound. the crossover is the gooseneck. the speakers sound great but if you like a more wooded sound they will be quite bright. some people prefer the tuned down highs of paper cone but i like to hear the tsk tsk tsk and pings of all the percussion and the clarity of upper register instruments.
my only complaint is the tweeter retainer design can break off a wire.
These Infinity Kappa separates are FANTASTIC. These 6. 5s were EVEN BETTER than I’d expected. These are among some of the best I’ve heard that fall anywhere NEAR this price range. I was unexpectedly impressed with the sound quality and value.
I used these in the front doors and infinity kappa 6. 5 2ways (the kappa 62. 11i model) in the rear doors of my 2011 Toyota Tocoma. I couldn’t be happier. I would highly recommend them. If fact, this is the 2nd set (components AND 2ways) I’ve bought in a month.
A friend wanting to replace his door speakers in his 2005 Silverado listened to the sound quality of these in MY truck, and had me order him the exact same speakers for his.
Incredible sound and clarity. I was able to install the speakers in 30 minutes. Even without an amp the sound crushes the stock speakers. With an amp the speakers would really come to life. I would recommend and purchase this product again.
JL Audio – C1-650 – 6. 5″ 225 Watts Peak Power 2-Way Car Component Speaker System – C1 speakers deliver real substance and great audio performance in a format designed for easy fit behind factory grilles.
To facilitate fit multi-application adaptor rings are included for the C1-650 woofers allowing easy drop-in installation in vehicles equipped with oversized 6. 5-inch and 6. 75-inch speaker openings.
Without the ring the woofers will also fit into many “6-inch” speaker locations as well. Surface and flush mounts are included with C1 tweeters for maximum installation versatility. C1 woofer drivers benefit from proprietary FEA modeling and JL Audio’s expertise in low-frequency driver design.
This knowledge is used to create speakers that can play loudly while maintaining a smooth dynamic low distortion sound. At the core of the C1-650 is a proprietary stamped steel 6. 50-inch (165 mm) frame and a DMA-optimized motor system.
A mineral-filled injection-molded polypropylene cone is suspended with a rubber surround on the front and a carefully engineered flat Conex spider at the top of the voice coil to precisely control the voice coil’s motion.
Tinsel leads are carefully routed and attached to the spiders to prevent fatigue and buzzing. These are the same kinds of features and materials normally found on much more expensive loudspeakers. Equipped with a true edge-driven aluminum dome tweeter C1 speakers stand further apart from others in its category with superior high-frequency clarity and definition.
The tweeter’s design has inherently excellent off-axis response and high-frequency extension. It also benefits from the damping of a silk surround suspension and Ferrofluid in the voice coil gap along with the superior strength of a neodymium magnet circuit.
An in-line outboard 2nd order high-pass filter with Advanced Tweeter Protection Circuitry is included to further enhance smoothness and improve power handling. When it comes to value C1 is the real deal! Sold as a pair.
I used a pair of these to replace the original premium factory speakers in my MK2 Ford Focus ST-2 with the Sony head unit. They are in the factory locations but with sound deadening/acoustic foam applied to the doors and door cards, plastic speaker mounting rings, rear diffusers and Vibe speaker baffles used to produce as good an install as possible.
I mounted the tweeters in the original factory sail panel location – they fit behind the grille with a little modification to the panel. They work well with the Sony head unit which provides more than ample power – they are sensitive speakers and 4 ohm rated like the originals.
Clarity and punch are significantly improved over the OE Sony speakers. Music has more depth and sound-staging is better too. Bass appears slightly less present than before but I think this is because of the enhanced clarity rather than a reduction in low frequency output.
Both treble and upper mids are smoother and less aggressive than previously. I tend to run bass and treble at 0/0 but use the head units DSP set to optimise right with just myself in the car or optimise all when I have passengers.
I dont feel that I need any other form of sound adjustment to get good results from the system.
Did not fit very well into factory boxes, required a lot of grinding and creativity. Mounting the crossover box in a dry but accessible location also took considerable creativity. Speakers sound better than my base speakers (I drove around for a week with only rears installed) but not sure if worth $1200 for set, especially considering they are made in China.
(to be fair I do not yet have them properly amplified or paired with a subwoofer, I am using a 55wRMSx4 head unit. ).
Made purchase to upgrade stock speakers in son’s 2002 BMW E46 with non-Harmeon Kardon audio arrangement. Although the installation is ongoing, my initial sound evaluation is nothing short of pure audio joy, The accuracy and efficiency of the speakers are remarkable.
The combined clarity and richness of the soundstage makes one forget that they are indeed in a car. Of course, it makes a difference that the new component arrangement includes an Audison SPX5 amp, LC8i Audio Control, a pair JL Audio C5-075CT tweeters, JL Audio C3-600s in the front door and rear deck, and a JL Audio 12W3V3-4 sub in a Sound Ordnance non-vented enclosure.
Although some minor modifications are required to fit the speakers in the door location, I accept the compromise to harness the sound quality of the C3-600s. Hands down a superb product. Assigned four stars only because of the added fitment work.
These speakers are otherwise a “”Five Star”” product. Install issue does not affect my appraisal of this top-notch product. The head room/space in the BMW E46 front door location is very limited.
2-Way Component System: 6. 5-inch (165 mm) Woofer 0. 75-inch (19 mm) Silk Dome Tweeter The Evolution C2 systems deliver sparkling high-frequency detail smooth mid-range and powerful mid-bass thanks to real silk dome tweeters and long linear excursion woofer designs.
The C2-650 system features 6. 5-inch (165 mm) component woofers with mineral-filled polypropylene cones long excursion capabilities and stamped steel frames.
I’m running these in all 4 doors, tweeters on front pillar and these are the best sounding speakers I’ve heard. Running my OEM deck, Fix86 and vx800/8, two 10w6v3 sealed running off a HD750/1. The sound quality is second to none.
I installed these in the D-pillar of my 2007 FJ Cruiser. I have another set in the front dash speakers as well that I was impressed with. They are not a direct replacement, but wired up easy using the included hardware.
I used some small spacers and the factory mounts, but had to trim some plastic from the back of the speaker cover. Totally worth it to fit a quality little speaker like this in place of the OEM ones, and I would do it again in a heart beat.
All of my speakers, including the sub, are now JL Audio, and all kinds of music sound amazing! Even with a stock head unit! I can only imagine how good these speakers would sound with a really good head unit to drive them.
I’m powering 2 pairs of these and a JL 10W0V3 sub with a Zapco 5 channel amp rated at 80 watts RMS X 4 @ 4 ohms + 160 X 1 @ 4 ohms. They sound very clear even at relatively high volumes, but the tweeters seem take over when you crank them up, and the tweeters seem to have a shallow range.
The extremely high notes seem to be over power the mid-range, even when set at -3db. Some of this may be due to placement in my vehicle, as I have them in the factory dash locations, but isn’t that the point in spending more on component speakers.
If both the tweeter and woofer are in relatively the same place, I might as well buy 2 way coaxial speakers and save some cash. Some have said that they get smoother as they break in (not sure if there is any truth to that), but I’ll give them some time to see if they get better.
If not, I’ll probably change them out at some point in the future.
C1-690 2-Way Component System: 6 x 9-inch (150 x 230 mm) Woofer, 1. 0-inch (25 mm) Aluminum Dome Tweeter C1 speakers deliver real substance and great audio performance in a format designed for easy fit behind factory grilles.
To facilitate fit, spacer/adaptor rings are included allowing the C1-690 woofers to be installed in bottom-mount applications. Surface and flush mounts are included with C1 tweeters for maximum installation versatility.
C1 woofer drivers benefit from proprietary FEA modeling and JL Audio’s expertise in low-frequency driver design. This knowledge is used to create speakers that can play loudly, while maintaining a smooth, dynamic, low distortion sound.
At the core of the C1-690 is a proprietary, stamped, steel 6 x 9-inch (150 x 230 mm) oval frame and a DMA-optimized motor system. A mineral-filled, injection-molded polypropylene cone is suspended with a rubber surround on the front, and a carefully engineered flat Conex spider at the top of the voice coil, to precisely control motion and prevent impact between the voice coil and the back plate.
Tinsel leads are carefully routed and attached to the spider to prevent fatigue and buzzing. These are the same kinds of features and materials normally found on much more expensive loudspeakers. Equipped with a true, edge-driven, 1-inch aluminum dome tweeter, the C1-690 stands further apart from others in its category with superior high-frequency clarity and definition.
The tweeter’s design has inherently excellent off-axis response and high-frequency extension. It also benefits from the damping of a silk surround suspension and Ferrofluid in the voice coil gap, along with the superior strength of a neodymium magnet circuit.
An in-line, outboard 2nd order high-pass filter, with Advanced Tweeter Protection Circuitry, is included to further enhance smoothness and improve power handling. When it comes to value, C1 is the real deal! Sold as a pair.
Grilles not available. 6″ x 9″ 2-Way Component Speakers.
If you have either the Sony or B&O system in your 2017-2019 F250/350 then you know if fails miserably as a “premium” audio system. Short of a complete rebuild, replacing the factory speakers with C1 series front and rear is the single best improvement you can make.
I’ve done this twice; once in a 2017 and once in a 2019 and these speakers put the sound in your truck that Ford left out (you still have to fix the sub though!). Very clear mid and highs and enough bass to make real difference.
These will drop in with the correct brackets and the difference is night and day. Highly recommended!.
2019 Tacoma. Upgraded to these. World of difference. Clean, clear, full sounding. Works well with stock unit. High’s are not too high where it’s ear piercing. You can crank the volume up with no distortion or listen to it on low and clearly hear the radio host talking.
I have this paired with C1-650x in the rear and the JL 8 inch factory tuned/powered enclosure. Massive improvement over stock and sounds great.
I just installed these in the front door of my 2015 Ram 1500, and they sound great! Paired with a Pioneer GM-D8704 and JL Audio 690tx in the rear doors. Nice punchy bass and quality tweeters, you cant beat the quality for this price! First time dealing with Sonic, and they have been absolutely fantastic! I wont buy from anywhere else!.
After doing some research and reading some reviews, I have come to the conclusion that component speakers are the best type of speaker to get for a car. They provide better sound quality than other types of speakers, and they are also easier to install.
