Why replace your car's original speakers?

The speakers that originally came in your car were made from inexpensive materials, designed to create acceptable sound at the lowest possible cost to the manufacturer. If you love music, you deserve better. Name-brand aftermarket speakers deliver fuller, richer sound with considerably more detail and nuance, and they're capable of playing louder and cleaner than factory speakers. Connect new speakers to your factory radio and you'll get the best possible sound from your dealer-equipped system. Pair them up with a new car stereo for a level of enjoyment that can rival a high-fidelity home audio experience.

Product Research

Specifications Note


Woofers: The woofer cones are constructed of injection-molded pearl-mica polypropylene coated with a titanium-nickel alloy. Uniform pearl-mica crystals form an overlapping structure that adds strength and heat resistance to polypropylene, resulting in reduced distortion and improved reliability. In addition, the titanium-nickel alloy coating adds even more strength, giving you deep powerful bass and smooth midrange response. Each woofer uses a UV resistant polyether foam surround for outstanding durability, even in direct sunlight.

Tweeters: Each speaker uses a 1" titanium-composite balanced-dome tweeter for crisp, clear highs.

Spacer Rings: The supplied self-adhesive plastic spacer rings can be used if the speakers are too deep for your vehicle. When the plastic spacer rings are installed, the mounting depth decreases to 1.901", the mounting height increases to 0.882", and the flange height increases to 0.443".

Specifications Note

Frequency Response Note: The overall frequency response is 35Hz-22kHz. The frequency response with a tolerance of +/-3dB is 65Hz-20kHz.
