Our take on the Rockford Fosgate Prime R1525X2

by John Pollard
Rockford Fosgate

Why replace your car's original speakers?

The speakers that originally came in your car were made from inexpensive materials, designed to create acceptable sound at the lowest possible cost to the manufacturer. If you love music, you deserve better. Name-brand aftermarket speakers deliver fuller, richer sound with considerably more detail and nuance, and they're capable of playing louder and cleaner than factory speakers. Connect new speakers to your factory radio and you'll get the best possible sound from your dealer-equipped system. Pair them up with a new car stereo for a level of enjoyment that can rival a high-fidelity home audio experience.

Excellent factory replacement

Whether you're building your first system or replacing some burned-out factory speakers, Rockford Fosgate's Prime Series R1525X2 5-1/4" 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 R1525X2 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 5-1/4" 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.

Epic !!

Written By Neeb10, Salem, NJ on Sunday, July 13, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Rockford Fosgate has been around for awhile, it's still around ! The point is the quality, price, and sound these products offer you is amazing. Growing up this is all my father had in his vehicle and now it's reputation has been passed on to me. I will then pass it on to my children. Overall great product.
Pros:
The build of the speaker is remarkable from the easy installment to the way it's packaged in the box. The clarity is untouchable and the thump I get from it gives people chills.
Cons:
N/A in my own opinion.

Awesome Upgrade

Written By KemoJoe, Clemmons, NC on Wednesday, June 11, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Installed these speakers in about an hour in our Honda Odyssey. My family immediately noticed how much clearer the mid-range vocals were and and how crisp the high end music sounded. The mid-bass ended up being less than the originals due to a smaller sized speaker and the speakers most likely needing more wattage than the original stereo has available. The wife and kids are very happy with the much better sound so we're very happy with the end result. They were an excellent recommendation from the Crutchfield advisor.
Pros:
Clearer high notes and vocals/mid-range. Excellent sound
Cons:
Mid-bass was less than originals due to smaller speaker size and the low wattage from factory stereo.

great sound

Written By Cory, Milwaukee WI on Tuesday, June 10, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The quality of sound is phenomenal compared to the stock speakers in my 98 Corolla.
Pros:
Sound quality is nice, provides great mid to high range. The mounting brackets made fitting it not as much of a custom fabrication affair.
Cons:
Now this is why I couldn't give it the full 5 stars, the speed clips they include have absolutely no use in my car, the clips are maybe a half inch long and wide, and the mounting holes are 2-3" in from the edge of the mounting hole, I did not have a small enough pliers to try and hold them behind the mounting holes so I had to go and get bolts and lock nuts from my hardware store. Not the biggest of deals but it made installation a chore.

Great Sound for Little Cash

Written By PapaT, Gallatin, TN on Friday, June 06, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers were extremely easy to install in my 1994 Cadillac DeVille. The sound quality is fantastic, and the highs/mids were perfect in conjunction with the factory tweeters. I highly recommend these if you are looking for an inexpensive upgrade or replacement to factory speakers.
Pros:
Good, clear sound. Excellent mid-range. No distortion even at high volume when ran from the factory head unit.
Cons:
None noted.

Crutchfield let me down!

Written By George, Killeen, Texas on Thursday, May 22, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I wanted to replace the speakers in my wife's 2007 VW Rabbit. Crutchfield recommended these R1525 2-way speakers. The 2007 VW Rabbit has component speakers i.e. a 6.75 woofer, a 5.25 mid range, and a 1in tweeter in the doors. It has a 6.5 woofer and a 1in tweeter on each side in the rear. Somebody please explain to me where 2-way speakers fit into this picture!
Pros:
The master sheet directions on how to get to the speakers were very good. However, nowhere does it say you have to buy a special tool, only used by the Germans to get the rear seat out!
Cons:
Crutchfield recommended a pair of 5.25in 2-way speakers and a pair of 4in 2-way speakers for the 2007 VW Rabbit. Bill, somebody dropped the ball big time on this one!
Crutchfield response on Tuesday, May 27, 2014
All of the tools needed for stereo and speaker removal are listed on the first page of our MasterSheet instructions, including specialty tools like in this case. As for speaker replacement, it's a common practice for people to replace factory component speakers with better 2-way speakers. That's why we offer that as an option in our vehicle-fit tool. Our tech support team reached out to the customer to explore his options and offer their assistance with the installation. Lifetime tech support is included with every Crutchfield purchase.

Missing Low End (Rav4)

Written By A7XRavens, Rising Sun, MD on Friday, May 16, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Clear sound, much better mids and definition that stock Toyota speakers but woefully short on low end, much lower than we was replaced. Also not as loud as I would have wanted, even with the ability to handle what the head unit is pushing (Kenwood DPX 500BT).
Pros:
Clear definition, mids
Cons:
Low end, ability to move real air.

Excellent product

Written By Hunter, Sheridan Wyoming on Sunday, April 27, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought 4 of these Rockford fosgate speakers to install in my 2003 Acura tl-s. The Acura had Bose speakers from the factory and I was doubtful these would even come close to matching performance, but I was entirely wrong! Much clearer sound, and they can take some serious pounding. Amazing speakers for the money. I would recommend them to anybody on a budget who wants amazing sound for a great price! These 5 1/4 speakers blew me away and sound almost as good as the kicker 6x9s in my second vehicle.
Pros:
Awesome sound, easy installation.
Cons:
Same price as the same family Rockford 6 1/2 inch speakers with less power handling.

Pros:
Came with brackets and wiring harnesses free!!!

Wasn't able to hear speakers before buying but read lots of reviews.

Good Option for Subaru Imprezza

Written By Ledge, Michigan on Sunday, January 12, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It was very difficult to find speakers for the doors of my son's Subaru. There is not much clearance in the doors. My son really wanted a matched set front and rear and the Rockfords were one of the few choices that had a speaker to fit both doors. They are a big improvement over the factory speakers and have very nice sound for the price. We will think about putting a small amp in place in the future but for now he is very happy with the purchase. I think there are better overall speakers out there in this size but these were clearly "the best that would fit" for our application.
Pros:
They actually fit!
Cons:
Not as efficient as some other models so will probably want to add a small amp in the future as opposed to running just off the deck.

Not the usual Rockford quality

Written By Pixel8r, Glendale, CA on Friday, January 03, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These are not your usual quality Rockford Fosgate speakers. I bought these to replace the factory front speakers in a 2004 Toyota Corolla. I thought the sound of the stock system was pretty sub-par. It's even worse with these. Theses replacements are all upper end and no mid or bass. Not that I expect a lot of bass from a 5 1/4" speaker, but it should perform down into the low 800-1000 HZ range. I don't think it performs below about 3000Hz. Really disappointed.
Pros:
Comes in a nice looking box and seems well made
Cons:
Sound quality is quite sub-par for a small speaker.

Rear install in 2013 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab

Very simple and straightforward installation in the back doors of the Tacoma. The Crutchfield instructions, brackets, and wiring harness made it very easy. The sound on these are a little on the harsher side, but good enough for fill using the factory head unit. And they sound 100 times better than the factory speakers.
Pros:
Easy installation.

These little speakers give life to my 99' Jeep grand Cherokee, when I turn the balance to the rear it plays every high and mid note. Bass is okay but I was looking for sound Clarity and I did get that with these. Crutchfield delivered these within 2 days which made the wait very tolerable and they always do a good job with sending instruction sheets as well as hardware to help speed to process along. Truly great place to go for anything for car audio.

These speakers really add to the clarity of my music. They don't provide much bass, but that isn't what I got them for. The highs and mids are very clear and pleasant. My stereo doesn't have to be blaring to hear the highs and mids while the windows are down. I am very pleased.

Installed these in the rear deck of a 2004 Honda Civic. The sound is not amazing, but they are better than the 6 1/2" Polks I put in the front doors. Good mids and highs. The bass is what you should expect from 5 1/4" speaker. Audible but far from booming.

Larger is better

Written By Bryan M, Chicago, IL on Sunday, September 15, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased these speakers to replace my stock speakers on a 2013 Honda Accord LX. The openings on the LX are 6.5 inches. These 5.25 inch speakers do not completely fill in the opening so there is open space all around the speaker preventing it from properly pushing air, especially for bass. As a result, bass is very weak and overall, they did not sound good. Crutchfield offers a plastic insert to cover the open area but I instead went with larger 6.5 inch Kenwood speakers. I would much rather fill the space with speaker as opposed to plastic. So, these speakers may sound alright on a different car, but as for the 2013 Honda Accord, go with a larger speaker. See my review on the Kenwood KFC-1664.
Pros:
Well constructed

Great Value, much better than I imagined

Written By gxpman2008, MN on Friday, August 23, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I was looking to upgrade my tired stock Infinity speakers on my 93 lebaron convertible, with a new deck. I was a Big rockford fan in the 1990's when into the Big old school systems, but I've mellowed out a bit. I want good sound quality and some volume because I need to hear it over the wind noise, but I wasn't looking to rattle windows. These sound crisp, clear and well balanced. These speakers sound much better than the stock speakers and I hear my music over any wind. The bass was actually better than I thought given the limited range of speakers of this size. I thought a subwoofer might be needed at some point, because I still like some bass, but these speakers aren't leaving me wanting much more.
Pros:
Great Value Great sound, worthy of the Rockford name!
Cons:
None, You won't get better sound quality, or bass with this size of speaker regardless of manufacturer. If you need more bass than this, add a subwoofer

Excellent speakers for the price

Written By zerkle, Santa Barbara, CA on Friday, August 09, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These little speakers are impressive! I was surprised at how much bass they can deliver, especially when they are well-baffled, as in the front doors of my 2007 Toyota Corolla (using the perfect-fit Crutchfield brackets). The only difficulty was drilling out three hardened-steel rivets to remove the old speaker. (I burned out one, and dulled another titanium-nitride bit.) The bass made the door liners vibrate and buzz, so I had to insert foam in selected areas. The treble and mids are crystal-clear. Be aware that these are much less efficient than the factory units. That turned out to be good for me, as it made the previously 'dead' door-top tweeters just sizzle! The approx. 11 w/ch. supplied by the factory head unit drives them adequately. A great value for a well-made component.
Pros:
Surprising bass, excellent treble and mids. Easy installation.
Cons:
Draw more power than than factory front speakers.

Decent speakers that handle mids and highs with pretty good clarity. But as for bass.... well maybe it's with Waldo and I just haven't spotted it yet? Granted one should not expect much thump with 5-1/4" speakers, but wow, it's like a black hole for low frequencies.
Pros:
Solid construction, easy to install (even with the modifications needed fpr my BMW 381.) Good clear sound.
Cons:
Boom go Bing. Don't really have much volume.

These Rockford speakers are pretty good i put them in my Jeep XJ and the front one gave me a little hassle for installation because you have to drill new mounting holes for the screws because they dont line up but the rear ones went right in and they sound awesome for the price. I wish they could get a little louder but hey they were only this much a pair so o well and it seems like they generate sound to carry so it sorta drowns out outside noise of car and environment and alot! clearer then stock speakers
Pros:
price look durability easy to install
Cons:
could get a little louder

"2013 Honda Accord Sport" Speakers made a big sound improvement and I am very satisfied. The only gripe I have is that you need to turn the volume up to enjoy them fully.

Test before install, connectors are mislabeled.

Great speakers, i have used it in overhead bar in 91 jeep wrangler. Couple issues: 1. Required hole diameter is smaller than other 5.25 speakers 2. positive/negative labeling is confusing. Red wire goes to negative label, black to positive. I ended up using colors as a guide vs labels on connectors.
Pros:
Loud, clear sound
Cons:
Slightly smaller than other 5.25. Requires smaller hole. I had old sony speakers installed before. Labeling is confusing.

i installed these in the front of my truck with the instructions and provided pieces, they were fast and easy to install despite a local dealer telling me otherwise. the local dealer told me these wouldn't fit and tried to tell me to return these speakers and buy his gear.....his prices were steep and i took off home to do it my self and i am glad i did. these speakers are great and a absolutely astounding purchase for the price if you dont have the green to buy a phenomenal system powered by an amp these speakers are your solution....they aren't super bright and they aren't super crisp but they are absolutely great sounding speakers for what you pay id recommend these to anyone looking to upgrade from stock or blown speakers ( paired well with my 12" rockford fosgate punch p3s sub)

Written By PhilNacious, Los Angeles, CA on Sunday, May 19, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The speakers are great! They have great highs and a little bump to it as well. but I really just needed something with not so much bump on the front door speakers too much bump in the front door was giving me a headache so these are perfect I get a great crisp sound. guitar solos sound beautiful violins, vocals all sound beautiful. I'm driving a Dodge Durango with 6 3/4 speaker holes and these 5 1/4 are just fine.
Pros:
Clean, great highs, well rounded little bass bump to them. No distortion at all.
Cons:
NONE. Perfect for me

1 question already asked

I wonder if my car could take so much power from this speakers, if the player could take it. Is it worth it from the original system? [ Andreas  Jan 06, 2014 ]
5 answers
  • I installed my pair with a standard Sony receiver on my harley Davidson Electra Glide. At 50 mph I have to turn the radio up and I still get an awesome sound from these speakers, (Rockford Fosgate Prime R1525X2) I highly recommend them with a stock or aftermarket system [ DONALD   Jan 08, 2014 ]
  • I don't quite understand your questions, but I'll say the following, as long as you have space for a 5 1/4" speaker, and your radio has enough power, they should sound OK. They do not reproduce much bass, so I use them in my front doors as mid-range speakers, since I have a powered sub-woofer in the rear to handle the heavy bass. Hope this helps out. [ VICTOR   Jan 07, 2014 ]
  • Pretty good sound from these speakers. Idk if your stock ones are premium but if not these will be better. These won't effect your head unit, they will use whatever amperage its putting out. [ CHAD   Jan 07, 2014 ]
  • Upgrading your factory speakers is always my first step. Even if you don't have a factory amp ie Bose or any other type of "upgraded" factory system. The sound quality over paper speakers is so much better. However if your factory head unit doesn't have enough RMS power to push these you may not get the full flavor sound your looking for. But I have these with my factory head unit and they sound great. So there are a ton of variables when it comes to car-fi. But it's up to you. But to answer your question Yes they are worth it [ MATTHEW   Jan 06, 2014 ]
  • My personal experience with these speakers is a great one. They sound so much better than the original ones that were in my truck. The sound is crisp and clear even at high volume. They also sound great accompanied by a pair of subs. I would say they are worth the investment. [ APRIL L   Jan 06, 2014 ]
