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.
Injection-Molded Polypropylene Woofers: The woofer cones are
mineral filled, injection-molded polypropylene. This molding process assures a
uniform cone thickness for superior linearity and clarity. It is also light
weight and rigid for decreased distortion and improved bass response.
Butyl Rubber Surrounds: The butyl rubber surrounds dampen
unwanted harmonic distortion while maintaining linear geometry under extreme
weather conditions. This leads to less distortion, superior frequency response,
and superior durability.
VAST Surround: The Vertical Attach Surround Technique (VAST)
increases a speaker's effective radiating cone area without increasing the size
of the basket.
Tweeters: Each speaker features a 3/4" PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide)
dome tweeter; PEI is a polymer film that produces a wide soundstage for superior
FlexFit Basket: The Flex Fit frame utilizes slots (where
possible) instead of single screw sized holes; allowing slight adjustment of
the speaker when mounted.
StampCast Basket: The P165 features StampCast steel baskets
for added rigidity.
Adapter Bracket: For mounting flexibility, the included brackets
can be modified to fit 5x7, 6x8, or 6x9 applications.
Note: The bracket is generic (cutout
sized for a 5-1/4) and requires modification before the
P165 will fit into it.
Speaker Terminals: These speakers have 0.25" wide positive
(+) terminals and 0.187" wide negative (-) terminals, which are too large for
the vehicle-specific speaker harnesses supplied by Crutchfield for many vehicle
applications. It is recommended that a pack of assorted female quick slides (item number
120FQS10PK, sold separately) be purchased and spliced to the harnesses to adapt
them to the speaker terminals.
