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.
Plus One+ Cones: Each woofer uses a cone significantly larger
than other speakers of the same size. This is accomplished by using a new basket
design and hi-roll surround. The Plus One+ design offers greater bass output and
a significant increase in efficiency.
Hi-roll Rubber Surrounds: The hi-roll rubber surrounds allow
the woofers a greater range of movement, resulting in longer X-max and more bass
Mounting: Without an adapter, the 6500cx woofers fit standard
6-3/4" applications. Given their required cutout, they will also fit standard
3-hole 6-1/2" and 4-hole 6-1/2" applications without an adapter, but
new screw holes must be drilled. Using the included adapter brackets they can be
mounted in a wide variety of 6-1/2" and 6-3/4" applications, without any
Material: Each tweeter features a 3/4" edge-driven textile
dome for smooth, accurate highs.
Mounting: The I-Mount tweeter mounting system and Starfish
mounting brackets give you several different ways to mount the tweeters:
- I-Mount Mounting System: The
tweeters can be surface- or flush-mounted with Infinity's
innovative I-Mount system:
- Surface Mount: Surface mounting
the tweeters involves screwing the surface-mount cup
to the mounting location, then inserting and locking
the tweeter into the cup.
- Flush Mount: Flush mounting is
made easy through the use of the threaded flush-mount
housing and plastic locking nut. Once a cutout is made,
the tweeter is installed in the flush-mount adapter,
then into the flush mount housing and inserted into
the hole. The large plastic locking nut is threaded
onto the adapter (from behind the mounting surface)
to hold the complete assembly securely in place. When
flush mounted, the tweeters may be angled for optimum
response and imaging.
- Starfish Mounting Brackets: The Starfish
mounting brackets allow the tweeters to be installed in factory
locations behind the grilles:
- Bottom Mount: Once the Starfish
bracket is trimmed, it is secured to the underside of
the grille panel. The tweeter must be inserted into
the bracket and locked into place before the bracket
- Surface Mount: Once the Starfish
bracket is trimmed, it is screwed to the top of the
mounting surface behind the grille panel. Then, the
tweeter is inserted into the bracket and locked into
- Flush Mount: There are two sets
of tabs to flush mount the tweeter in the Starfish
bracket, yielding different mounting dimensions. The
upper tabs mount the tweeter completely below the
opening and are glued in place. The lower mounting
tabs are screwed in place and result in a mounting
height just under a half inch. Once the bracket is
mounted, the tweeter is inserted into the bracket
and locked into place.

Selectable Tweeter Output Level: Each 2-way crossover allows
you to select the tweeter output level according to system requirements and
personal preference; the tweeter level can be set to +3 dB or 0 dB.
Connections: The crossover inputs and outputs are screw
terminals; they will accommodate bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.315"
wide. There are four mounting holes in each crossover.
- Width: 3.935"
- Height: 1.209"
- Depth: 3.171"
True Four Ohm Impedance Technology: The speaker's 3-ohm
impedance combined with the impedance of your speaker wire provides a true
4-ohm load to your connected head unit or amplifier.
Power Handling: Although Infinity rates the 6500cx speakers at 90 watts RMS (continuous average), they also recommend amplifiers with a
power rating from 5 to 200 watts RMS.
