Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Dynamic Balance is a proprietary Polk Audio technology using laser imaging to
determine what combination of speaker materials create the least amount of
resonance. Eliminating resonance in speakers results in a wide, smooth response
and low distortion.
Each speaker features a Dynamic Balance polymer/mica composite mineral-filled
cone. The cones are stiff and lightweight for big sound and low distortion.
Surrounds: For a
smoother response and improved durability, the woofers use butyl rubber
Kapton Voice Coil Formers:
The low-mass 2-Layer 1" Kapton Voice Coil formers are lightweight for high sound
output. Kapton's high melting temperature ensures high power handling and
Pole Plate Heat Sinks:
The pole plate heat sinks promote better heat dissipation for superior power
handling and reliability.
Mounting Ring: The supplied
mounting ring has mounting holes for both 6-1/2" and 6-3/4" applications, including GM/Chrysler 6-3/4G,
allowing the speaker to fit more vehicles. In most cases, the ring should be
used to mount the speaker.
Tweeters: The 1" liquid-cooled,
silk/polymer composite tweeters provide clear, detailed highs.
The supplied mounting cups allow you to surface- or flush-mount the tweeters. The tweeters swivel in the flush-mount housings, allowing you to adjust them for optimum imaging.
Each Butterworth outboard crossover features a 12dB/octave high-pass network for the tweeter
and a 12dB/octave low-pass network for the woofer.
Tweeter Attenuation Switch: You
can adjust the output of the tweeter to match a level appropriate to your
vehicle or your system. On the end of crossover (opposite the terminals), the
tweeter attenuation switch can be set to 0dB, -3dB, or +3dB.
Electronic Tweeter Protection
Circuits: Each crossover has a
built-in protection circuit that guards the tweeter against accidental damage
from high power.
The crossover inputs and outputs are screw terminals. The crossover housing is
vented, giving you a choice of hidden wire channels for easier, more
There are two mounting holes in the base of each crossover.
