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.
Polypropylene Woofer Cones (CIMP): CIMP is a high performance composite,
which remains rigid, minimizes cone flex and lowers harmonic distortion. The
CIMP consists of a one-piece, injection-molded polypropylene material that moves
as a piston, exhibiting power and control.
Enhanced BAM (Basket and Motor)
Assembly: The Enhanced BAM (Basket and Motor) Assembly utilizes a high
strength steel basket, features a low-profile open design, and provides a solid
foundation for the precision aligned motor assembly.
Santoprene Rubber Surrounds: The santoprene rubber surrounds offer unmatched acoustical dampening and UV
protection, while allowing extended cone excursion for additional bass output
and higher SPL.
Voice Coil Former: Each woofer
uses a high-temperature Polyimide film voice coil former for improved sonic and
conductive properties, and to prevent thermal-electrical meltdown.
Tinsel Leads: The speaker uses
high power tinsel lead wires to prevent broken leads and power loss due to the
common use of "insufficient gauge" lead wires.
Dual Titanium Dome Tweeters: Each speaker features a
1" and 3/4" Titanium dome tweeters with neodymium magnets for an extended high frequency
response up to 21kHz.
Ferro-Fluid Cooled Tweeter Voice
Coils: Each tweeter voice coil is fluid cooled for greater durability.
Grille Mounting: The supplied
grille rings mount under the speakers. If you install the speakers with the
grilles, the speaker mounting depth is decreased to 3.015" and the speaker
mounting height is increased to 2.0265".
Marine Ready: The speakers are
equipped with stainless steel mounting hardware (screws and speed clips) which
resist corrosion, allowing you to replace most stock boat speakers without
