Our take on the Rockford Fosgate Prime R14X2

by John Pollard
Rockford Fosgate

Excellent factory replacement

Whether you're building your first system or replacing some burned-out factory speakers, Rockford Fosgate's Prime Series R14X2 4" speakers offer clean, powerful performance that'll keep you and your friends rockin' as you drive. Plus, Prime speakers are a great way to get Rockford Fosgate sound quality without destroying your bank account.

Rockford Fosgate Prime R14X2 speaker

The flush-mount tweeter allows this speaker to fit in more locations and provides a more focused image.

Better components give you better detail

Each 4" speaker sports a stiff polypropylene woofer cone that delivers strong drums and bass, along with clean reproduction of the midrange frequencies. Rockford Fosgate mounts the silk dome tweeter flush with the woofer so it'll fit in more vehicles while adding the excitement of strong high-frequency response. The built-in crossover network divides the frequencies going to each driver, so all your music plays faithfully. Grilles are included.

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.

Features

Tweeters: Each speaker features a 1/2" Silk dome tweeter. The embedded design maintains the correct phase relationship between the tweeter and woofer, and doesn't add to the speaker's overall height.

4/2 Hole Compatibility: The speakers' mounting tabs can be removed, allowing installation in 4-hole or 2-hole applications. Please refer to the Crutchfield Car Selector to confirm fit for your vehicle.

Klippel Analysis: By using a state-of-the-art Klippel Distortion Analyzer, Rockford Fosgate engineers can optimize the speaker's motor structure, voice coil alignment, and suspension for the best possible performance and the lowest distortion.

reasonable speakers for a reasonbale price

Written By rx-7 fb, northern deep south on Tuesday, September 16, 2014
 
These speakers clip out at higher volumes. If you like annoying people with loud music, calling attention to yourself, and getting attention from the cops, then these aren't for you. These speakers are good for enjoyable listening at reasonable volume and effortlessly handle higher frequencies
Pros:
Good for personal listening.
Cons:
Not good for loud music

Installed these in my grandfathers 93 geo tracker. Put 4 of these 4 inch rockford fosgate speakers in it and it sounds so much better! Had old kenwoods in it. Will be getting more of them in other sizes for other vehicles.
Pros:
Clear sound, very well built,

The speakers were priced right and seem to work great for the price in my 13 Silverado, this was a nice upgrade with factory stereo. They are a little more work to install in rear factory mounts but sound good.

Rockford Fosgate 14x2 GMC Searra wrong speaker

Written By Dennis A, Mount Kisco NY on Saturday, September 21, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This speaker may work well for a different application. This was my fault, I was looking for good quality speaker to go in the rear doors of my 2004 GMC Sierra. Looking though the Crutchfield website I was under the impression that the only size that would fit without cut a larger hole. Once again this was my fault, I should have looked further, The existing cut out is 4x6 that is the size that I should have ordered. Back to the Fosgates, their sound is very clear but very low and I don't mean low as in base I mean Low as in volume. As far as base they had virtually no base. But then again they are a 4" speaker. If you have room for a 4" speaker and what some good clean mid ranges and highs these are a good speaker.
Pros:
Good clear mid-range and highs
Cons:
No Base. then again it's only 4"

About my install

Written By Henchy, San Jose, CA on Friday, August 09, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I received these speakers in a timely manner and well packed for shipping. I decided to write this review based on my installation of product for a 1999 Toyota Avalon with the stock Altec Lansing 7 speaker system. Sofar I have 1 of the 2 spkrs installed in passenger side/front. I left the stock tweeter connected. I can't tell much of a difference between the stock mid and the 2 way Fosgate. I'm sure with more power it might prove to be better than stock one for loud volumes. There will be a thin gap the circumference of speaker after mounted. You will have to refoam the little air vent next to speaker or just leave it without like i did. Clearance is fine for front doors with speaker. Mounting is troubling though. If you are fine with 2 screws to hold it it's fine, however there is not enough width in the molded plastic to mount more than 3 screws if your lucky. All in all it was fun to install speaker and compare it to stock. If you don't plan to upgrade your head unit or amplify these the stock Altec Lansing system is comparable in my opinion. I think to hear the value of these speakers it might take toward their max. rms input and a sensitive ear to details based on my particular install situation. I am sure that these speakers will be a definate upgrade for many cars but not so much in my case.
Pros:
Sound on par with the stock 'premium' ones when installed solely replacing factory speaker and leaving fact. tweeter in. Probly better sound with higher wattage. crisp highs and decent low end for size.
Cons:
No cons. At this time I just can't tell much difference in sound based on my test setup.

What would you suggest for replacement speakers for a 2001 yamaha venture motorcycle? Bike has 4 built in speakers. Need something to withstand weather . [ Steve  Apr 11, 2014 ]

  • Hi it's Steve. The stock speakers look like 4". I have not taken them out yet to measure. I have a number of people that want to change speakers and they are waiting to see what I find that will sound good without breaking your budget. [ Steve   Apr 22, 2014 ]
  • I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The best option would be the Polk Audio DXi525's. These will be more marine grade than any other manufacturer that we carry. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
