Our take on the Axxera AS65C

by Alexander Hrabe
Axxera

Why install component speakers?

A component speaker system gives you the best possible performance from your car audio system. A system consists of separate woofers, tweeters, and crossovers, each designed to cover one specific range of frequencies. As separate components, the woofer can move freely to deliver more powerful performance, while the tweeter can be custom-mounted in a better spot up closer to your ears, revealing a whole new world of detail. Separate crossovers are far superior to the simple filters wired into full-range speakers, so the components work together for smoother, more focused sound.

A fresh look

Upgrading your car's sound system should be fun, and Axxera brings excitement to the speaker realm with a fresh look and inspired materials. This AS65C 6-3/4" component speaker system is hard to ignore with its big, contoured grilles and cool blue woofer cones, but they're not all flash. Every element contributes to a dynamic, natural sound that's a night-and-day difference from what your factory speakers can produce.

Sound staging

This Axxera component system lets you optimize the sound staging in your car so you'll feel as if the music is playing across your dash. By mounting the separate 1" silk dome tweeters up closer to your ears, you'll gain better stereo separation with more detail. The included passive crossover network directs the right frequencies to the woofer and tweeter.

Minimal distortion

Axxera has made a concerted effort to minimize distortion with these speakers. The woofer features a lightweight yet stiff 3-Layer Honeycomb Glass Fiber cone that delivers high accuracy while minimizing resonances. A cast-aluminum basket provides a rock-solid housing for the woofer, giving the midbass frequencies an extra kick. This system will handle up to 60 watts RMS, so you can add to their mojo by powering them with an amplifier.

Highlights:

  • component system includes 2 woofers, 2 tweeters, and 2 crossovers
  • 6-3/4" glass fiber and honeycomb composite woofer cone
  • 1" silk dome tweeter
  • power range: 2-60 watts RMS (200 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 20-20,000 Hz
  • top-mount depth: 2-5/8"
  • sensitivity: 89 dB
  • impedance: 4 ohms
  • grilles included
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Note: Axxera describes this model as a 6-1/2" speaker. Most manufacturers designate this same frame size as a 6-3/4" speaker. For simplicity's sake we list it as a 6-3/4" speaker.

Features

Woofer Cone: The 3-layer honeycomb glass fiber composite woofer cone is extremely stiff, minimizing resonance and off-axis movement, resulting in less distortion.

Woofer Terminals: The speaker wire is connected to set screw terminals that will accept up to 12-gauge wire.

Tweeter: The laminated silk dome tweeters provide clear treble reproduction and a wide frequency response.

Tweeter Mounting: The tweeters can be flush mounted, surface mounted, or surface mounted at an angle (approximately 45°) using the included adapters.
