Our take on the Rockford Fosgate Prime R165X3

by John Pollard
Rockford Fosgate

Why replace your factory 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 R165X3 6-3/4" 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 R165X3 speaker

The R165X3 adds a piezo supertweeter for extra detail.

Read more

Better components give you more detail

Each 6-3/4" speaker sports a stiff polypropylene woofer cone that delivers strong drums and bass, along with clean reproduction of the midrange frequencies. The silk dome tweeter and piezo supertweeter add the excitement of strong high-frequency response to your music without a trace of harshness. The built-in crossover network divides the frequencies going to each driver, so all your music plays faithfully. Grilles are included.

Note: Rockford Fosgate describes this model as a 6-1/2" speaker. Most manufacturers designate this same frame size as a 6-3/4" speaker. For simplicity's sake, we list it as a 6-3/4" speaker.

Highlights:

  • 6-3/4" 3-way car speakers (pair)
  • polypropylene woofer cone with rubber surround
  • 1/2" silk dome tweeter
  • piezo supertweeter
  • power range: 2-45 watts RMS (90 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 52-20,000 Hz

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

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.

Mounting: While Rockford Fosgate calls the R165X3 a 6-1/2" speaker, its required cutout will not allow it to fit in standard 6-1/2" applications. It does easily replace what we describe as 6-3/4" speakers. Please refer to the Crutchfield Car Selector to confirm fit for your vehicle.

Big Difference

Written By David808, SE Pennsylvania on Thursday, October 30, 2014
 
Bought these to replace the stock front door speakers in my '03 Matrix. At this point the OEM speakers were 12 years old, so they sounded terrible, but the Rockford Fosgate Prime R65X3 are far better than what I remember the stock speakers sounded when new. There is absolutely more bass than before and the tweeters deliver crisp highs. The mid-range required some tweaking with the equalizer, but every car requires some optimization. After drilling out the rivets holding in the stock speakers, the Primes fit perfectly. Crutchfield provided adaptor rings and a wiring harness and everything fit as designed. The screws on the adaptor ring were a bit long, but usable if you take up the space with a few extra washers (pick some up before you begin if you don't have any). I've had them in about 3 weeks now and now that they have broken in they are really beginning to shine. Tempted to replace the rear speakers now!
Pros:
Perfect fit. Crutchfield supplied accessories spot on. Sound fantastic
Cons:
Adaptor ring mounting screws a bit too long. Nothing serious. Adaptor ring perfect (must knock out tabs on inner ring for speaker to fit-again, no big deal).

Bang for the buck

Written By Adam, New Jersey on Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Installed these in a 99 Saturn SL with no issue. Dropped right in and no drilling required. Overall, these sound pretty good. The bass is present and the midrange is good, but the highs are sometimes a little unpleasant. This may have more to do with source audio quality and equalizer settings on my head unit, though. For the price, this is a no-brainer, 10x better than stock solution. I should've done it sooner.
Pros:
Easy to install, very loud, clear, inexpensive
Cons:
None

much nicer than the stock Rockford Fosgate speakers

Written By jim, Lena, IL on Wednesday, August 06, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased these for my son for his birthday. Somehow his 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer was missing the right front speaker when he bought it. I had them sent to him in Kansas and I sent an array of tools he would need. Unfortunately he was not sent an installation sheet. He is not a mechanical person but got it done with minimal drama. All the parts provided made for a seamless installation. He states that they are much louder and clearer than the "speaker" they replace.
Pros:
Nice price, good sound, all accessories needed to install properly.
Cons:
No instructions sent on how to remove the door panels.

Good Sound

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers are great if you have a sub, I replaced my rear speakers in my Saturn sedean with these Primes and the sound is very crisp, if you limit the bass these speakers will take care of the rest.
Pros:
Good sound, easy set up, not to pricey either.
Cons:
Not the strongest mid to low range but you get what you pay for.

Prime R165X3

Written By Anonymous, Dallas, TX on Wednesday, July 23, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I installed Primes in my last 3 vehicles and was blown away by their performance and range. The R165X3 model has been a serious disappointment. Mid's and lows are non existent and the highs sound like they are coming from an in dash 1 inch tweeter verses an aftermarket semi performance 6.5 inch door speaker. Go for the component version for better overall range and performance.
Pros:
Economical and better upper range than factory.
Cons:
No mid to low range

Bought these based on a friend recommendation to replace the oems on the front doors of a 2014 Kia Rio hatch and the difference is night and day. I can enjoy music now even with the stock headunit. The clarity of sound it's really really good sure the bass is a bit weak but that's what a sub is for.
Pros:
The sound is really good even with a OEM headunit. Songs in my playlist sound 100% better now
Cons:
Should have included OEM wiring harness

I bought these for my 2001 Toyota tundra after I bought and installed a new pioneer cd player, and found I was living in the factory speaker dark ages. A quick look online at crutchfield, and after talking to ANN, she helped me pick out these speakers. I was blown away by the night and day difference of these speakers over the stock factory speakers. I had read some of the reviews about no bass, but these sound great and have good bass!. I would recommend these to anyone looking to upgrade from substandard factory speakers!.
Pros:
Great sound with good bass, easy installation, worth every penny!!!.
Cons:
No cons that I can think of.

Speakkers replaced stock door speakers on a 2001 chevy silverado. They fit perfect. They say to drill new holes but that is not really necessary. I used self taping sheetmetal screws and had them installed in no time. They are much better sounding than the stock blown out speakers ( even before they were blown out) I do find them a touch boomy, but the radios equalizer was able to help compensate for that.
Pros:
Decent bass plus better treble than stock
Cons:
None

Work Great

Written By Tom, Yukon Ok on Monday, May 12, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Have had these speakers for about 6-7 days and they work great! Put them in the doors of my 98 ext cab silverado when I installed my new head unit(Clarion cz302) and am not sorry for my choice. Had a decent amount of bass for a 6.5" inch speaker out of the box and its improving daily as they break in. Noticed in a few of the previous reviews that some found them to have no bass at all but that's absolutely not the case here. If you keep in mind what these are which is a 6.5" door speaker and not a 12" sub I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. With that being said I'm 45, so earth shattering bass isn't at the top of my list but good clean sound is and that's what I get with these. Tight little thump on the low end, nice crisp mids and highs on the other, couldn't ask for more especially at this price! These guys really seem to wake up when you lean on them with a little bit of volume so can't wait to get the Clarion xc1410 amp put in when it gets here along with the RF Punch 6x9's that are on the way as I write this. Will update when everything is in and going. Should be a decent sounding set up at a more than reasonable price, at least for this "old" guy lol. Thanks Crutchfield!!!

Written By Dan S., Daytona Beach,FL on Tuesday, May 06, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
A major improovement over the stock speakers. I have had them in about a week. Only criticism I have is the base response could be better,but sounds fine to my ear.Note also I have the stock amp driving these speakers and an upgrade here may make the slight shortfall in base response better. I installed these speakers in a 2007 Silverado extended cab new body style, (front doors).
Pros:
So far speakers seem like a good Quality speaker that i am happy with so far.
Cons:
Speakers may have a slight weakness in base response if driving base response is what you are looking for,but overall I am happy With them so far.

Did not fit into my 2010 Subaru very well. My husband had to use strip ties as the holes did not line up, but after being in there for a month they are holding up and sound great. Thank goodness my husband has the knowledge to improvise.

I am very pleased with the whole process. The speakers are very nice regardless of how good the price was. It is easy to over power the bass with the mid tones and highs, but if you tune those down and bring up the bass a little you can really hear how nice these speakers are. I would buy them again if I needed another set this size.

Great stock speaker replacement when retaining the factory runner.

Replaced the front door speakers in my Chevy Express work van.
Pros:
Installation was very simple with the install guide and quick connect harness. It told me which tools I needed as well. Took less than a 1/2 hr for both doors. The sound is way better than factory. Lots more Highs and Lows from the factory AM/FM stereo. I wanted something cheap and easy since its not my van and these speakers were perfect.
Cons:
None really. I could have spent more and gotten more power and what not, but I'm not gonna dump a bunch of money into a work van.

Rockford Fosgate Prime R165X3

Written By A great purchase!, McHenry, IL on Friday, February 28, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is an excellent speaker, especially for the low price! Clean and crisp sound, sufficient amount of punch, and minimal distortion for the high volume music. I listen to all kinds of music from country to rock to R&B to a little screamo and it all sounds wonderful! I can even hear talk radio without adjusting the bass or treble. Music with a lot of bass is my favorite and these speakers handle well at loud volumes with my subs and amp. I am impressed and will return business when it comes time to replace my rear speakers.
Pros:
Fast Low price Nice, bass punch Handles a wide range of genres well at loud volumes Clean and crisp sound Not too painful to install (even in the middle of winter in Chicago)
Cons:
I haven't found anything worth complaining about and I installed them a month ago.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great speaker upgrade. I can't believe that I didn't upgrade to these sooner. Very crisp and clear with the addition of some RF tweeters. Lack a little bass but expected that. i guess I'll have to add a sub next!!!
Pros:
easy installation with provided equipment. Crisp clean sound. Excellent value
Cons:
Not a whole lot of bass, but what do you expect from a 6 3/4 speaker.

Highs and Mid-Level sound are pretty good, but do not order if you are looking for any amount of bass. They just don't produce.
Pros:
Highs and Clarity..
Cons:
Lack of Bass

Nothing special

Written By Josh K, Jacksonville, FL on Saturday, July 27, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Very nice speakers if you use with a subwoofer setup or listen to country, vocal, or other music styles that don't include much bass. That being said, the factory speakers in my 09 Cobalt (non Pioneer) sounded better. I wasn't planning on adding a sub, but now I'm considering it to make up for the loss of bass.
Pros:
Highs and mid range, quality construction
Cons:
Falls short on low-frequency sounds, replicates bass worse than factory speakers, sounds "tinny" at times

Excellent Sound Quality

Written By Mark Z, Roseburg, Or on Tuesday, June 25, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Replaced my stock chevy speakers in my Express van with these R/F speakers and had them changed out in under an hour. The upgrade in sound quality is amazing and the price was great. Another great buy from Crutchfield, now I am probably going to put these in my Honda Accord and throw away the stock speakers.
Pros:
Easy to install, fit right in factory speaker housing. Crisp sound with great treble and bass, awesome clarity on vocals.
Cons:
None so far.
