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.
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:
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.
