High-quality replacement speakers

Rockford Fosgate designed the Punch P165-S component speaker system as a high-grade replacement for your factory speakers. Each 6-1/2" woofer features a responsive polypropylene cone and butyl rubber surround that'll stand up to hours of high-volume jams. The separate 1" dome tweeters provide clear, extended highs that can hold their own when the bass gets heavy.

The poly woofer and butyl rubber surround give you solid bass.

Rockford Fosgate innovations

Take a closer look and you'll notice a couple of cool innovations. Rockford Fosgate uses a new technique to attach the surround to the cone that yields up to 25% more cone area, for fuller sound and stronger performance. They build the crossover into the speaker frame so you don't have to find an area to mount a separate box. The slots around the frame eliminate the need to redrill screw holes when the factory holes are just a little bit off. Grilles are included.

Product Highlights:

  • component speaker system includes 2 woofers, 2 tweeters, and 2 woofer grilles
  • 6-1/2" mineral-filled polypropylene woofer
  • butyl rubber surround
  • 1" polyetherimide (PEI) dome tweeter
  • crossovers built into woofer baskets
  • Vertical Attach Surround Technique (VAST™) increases cone area
  • power range: 6-60 watts RMS (120 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 60-22,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 90.2 dB
  • top-mount depth: 1-15/16"
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

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.

Product Research

Features

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.

FlexFit Basket: The Flex Fit frame utilizes slots (where possible) instead of single screw sized holes; allowing slight adjustment of the speaker when mounted.

Woofer Size: Although the FlexFit basket allows a wide range of screw hole positions, it does not offer the standard three hole 6-1/2" pattern. Drilling new screw holes may be necessary.

PEI Dome Tweeters: The 1" dome tweeters are made of Poly-Ether-Imide (PEI); PEI is a polymer film that produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging.

Mounting: The tweeters have multiple mounting configurations; choose flush or surface mount. The surface mount housing can be positioned at a 10° or 30° angle. Depending on the mount used, the installed dimensions are:

  Flush Surface 10° Surface 30°
Mounting Height 0.446" 1.075" 1.265"
Mounting Depth 0.911" Screw Depth Screw Depth
Frame Diameter 2.357" N/A N/A
Cutout Diameter 1.75" N/A N/A
Frame Width N/A 2.130" 2.130"
Frame Depth N/A 2.162" 2.140"

Crossovers: The high-pass crossovers are integrated into the baskets of the woofers. The slope is 12dB per octave.

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 Crutchfield supplies for many vehicle applications. We recommend 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.

Sounds great

Written By Shawn, Erie Pa on Friday, October 10, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Install was easy,no crossover to hide. Sound was a little harsh at first, once I got thing adjusted they sounded great.

Pros: Price.. No crossover to hide

Cons: None

High quality but HARD install

Written By Scott S., Ava, MO. on Wednesday, October 08, 2014

Rockford quality as expected & major upgrade for factory 04 Colorado Crew Cab O.E. Tweeter was no where close to fitting in original slot & took heavy modification to fit. Large speakers didn't fit but minor adjustment to complete install. High quality upgrade as expected but more work than imagined & would consider different Rockford model/series to make install easier.

Pros: As always very high quality from Rockford Fosgate, great sound & best bang for your buck! Can never go wrong with RF!

Cons: Would give 5 * if installation was not so intensive. If you don't want to cut on your door panel, you may want to consider a different series and/or size. Far from simple removing the old & in with new. However if you are auto/mechanic savy you can handle the job. If not much on D.I.Y. projects consider having professional install.

Great Sound Quality

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Theses speakers were a great replacement for the OE ones in my '00 Blazer! The installation kits included made it easy to install. Good sound!

Pros: Easy installation, Good sound

Cons: I am adding a subwoofer to make up for the low end being absent. Didn't want subwoofer quality nor did I expect it. Just a little more low end and 5 stars

Great replacement speaker

Written By Jose Javier G., Bayamon, Puerto Rico on Wednesday, February 12, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

great replacement speakers. they really delivery bass even without a separate amplifier. integrated crossover within the speaker is a big plus. the bad news installing them in the rear side of a 2002 Suzuki Aerio?... 1-it doesn't fit in the factory-drilled screw holes; you have to drill two additional holes. 2-provided speaker cable adaptor doesn't fit the smaller terminal of the speaker (adaptor female connector is too small).

Pros: great sound. integrated crossover. nice looking.

Cons: extra screw drilling required. speaker cable adaptor doesn't fit the speaker terminals.

Rockford Fosgate Punch P165-S

Written By Nick W, New York on Saturday, January 25, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I put the set in a 06 civic. With the adaptors I also bought here it took me like 30 minutes to put them in. They fit perfect I even put the foam backings on. I haven't put in an amp yet but so far they rock pretty good! The hardware that comes with it, the screws more specifically that hold the speaker to the mount need to be shortened how ever you want to do it. I cut them with a cut off wheel because you can put the speaker to the mount before attaching it to the door. Or you can try to just screw them into the door but that's where things start to break.

Pros: Easy install, fit up, wiring, sound really swell.

Cons: Figuring out how to hook up the tweeters.

My Second Set

Written By Anonymous, Pittsburgh, PA on Monday, December 09, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Have them in my 2009 GMC Crew Cab and liked them so much I bought a set for my dad for X-mas. There are a great step up from factory speakers even better than most premium factory speakers.

Pros: Easy install no need to mess around finding a place for a external crossover

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These were used to replace the stock speakers in my wife's 300 Touring. So far I am very happy with them. They reproduce clear/crisp highs.

SOUNDS GREAT!!!! CRYSTAL CLEAR HIGHS!!!

Written By Frank J, Mesa, Az on Saturday, April 06, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers sound great! The 6 1/2 woofer fit with just a little modification to the door, which I was aware of thanks to the great instructions. The only downside of these is that the tweeters were much larger than my factory ones, and required a fair amount of modification to get them to work in the factory location. If the instructions had included some tips on that part of the install, I would have given it 5 stars. If you are looking for crazy bass, these are not the speakers for you, although if you are building a full system(component fronts, aftermarket rears, and true subs) these speakers are perfect for that.

Pros: Sound Great! Really good highs from the tweeters, just the right amount of bass for the woofers!

Cons: Had to do quite a bit of modifying to get the tweeters to fit in the factory location

Gets the job done!

Written By Drew, Winchester, VA on Monday, December 17, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased these to replace a blown factory speaker. They may be slight overkill for my needs (I use an aftermarket head unit, but no amp), but they sound great! Installation was a little tricky at no fault of the speakers themselves. Thanks a lot Honda! I would give them a 5 star rating had the first set I received not contained a defective speaker. However, Crutchfield customer support was fantastic and sent me a replacement set right away!

Pros: Clean sound. Very adaptable to you installation needs.

Cons: Defective speaker in first set received.

The crossovers are built into the woofers so the wires for the tweeters plug right into the woofers [ BRIAN  May 13, 2014 ]
Yes it comes ready to install with every thing you need. [ Douglas  May 08, 2014 ]
They come with a passive crossover. I wired them in with the crossover in series. Tweeters that come as a component system work best and last longer if you wire them according to the manufacture's directions. [ MAURICE  May 08, 2014 ]
The speakers have a crossover built into them. They don't allow as much freedom as a traditional component speaker but for the price they are very decent speakers. [ SCOTT C  May 08, 2014 ]
On this model of speaker, the crossover is built into the 6.5" speaker. When you get them, you will see 2 sets of terminals on the 6.5". One set is for the vehicle wiring, the other set is for the tweeter. I loved this about these speakers, because it made wiring a breeze. You don't have to worry about mounting a separate crossover and all the extra wiring that goes along with it. Rockford even provides the extra wiring for the tweeter in the box. I love these speakers and would recommend them to anyone. [ FRANK B  May 08, 2014 ]
Bob the main speaker has the crossover built into the base with the wiring terminals marker speaker and tweeter. Hope this helps. [ PATRICK  May 08, 2014 ]
Best to install on the pillar or top of the door facing you ,or mount in the dash pointed toward the windshield ,that will be the best sound [ gomezj22  Apr 28, 2014 ]
I had a 08 frontier and I fit the same size tweeter in the factory location. I took the old assembly out and made a bracket out of plexiglass glass and they fit like a glove. I installed the p 165, s in my girlfriend's 12 corolla They sound really good and are well built. They will need an amp to get the best sound out of them. [ PHILLIP T  Dec 15, 2013 ]
Yes but for a Chevy Silverado. They sound great but maybe need some real tuning. If not it sounds like they are screaming at you without bass. But after the tuning they sound really great. Kenneth [ KENNETH P  Dec 15, 2013 ]
