The flush-mount tweeter allows this speaker to fit in more locations and provides a more focused image.
Whether you're building your first system or replacing some burned-out factory speakers, Rockford Fosgate's Prime Series R169X2 6"x9" 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.
Each 6"x9" 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.
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.
Can't go wrong with Rockford Fosgates, they are a great durable brand. And it's a plus to buy from Crutchfield because your not left on your own like at other retailers or whatever store you can buy cheap crap speakers from! These speakers are really good though and i will keep buying from this website.
Pros: great product, sound, quality and fast shipping
Haven't got to try them yet but I looked them over and they look great. And buying from Crutchfield is a slam dunk for this package, you can't go wrong with Rockford speaker!
Pros: High quality, low price, shipping was fast
4 stars for the speakers but giving 5 for Crutchfield's service.
Pros: Cheap, quality, loud
Great sounding speakers
Sounds great and great price.
Great bang for the money! Quality factory replacements. Due to my car's setup, these only receive bass frequencies, but they actually deliver really solid bass. I was surprised. Rockford Fosgate has always delivered for me.
Pros: Sound and price.
Great sounding speakers
These were a good and affordable replacement for the front door in my 2015 Prius. They pull decent power from the factory head unit and provide tighter bass (though not great response) and previously missing detail. The plastic mounting brackets Crutchfield provided didn't include much needed hardware, which made installation more difficult. These speakers sound great with classical and folk music. Hard Rock could use an amp at higher volume.
Pros: Big improvement over factory at a very good price.
Cons: Mounting brackets missing hardware.
I do not currently have them hooked up to an amp, but they go pretty well with my stick stereo. I have a 2013 Camry and I put the 6x9s throughout the car even though crutchfield says they will not fit. Install went well with he harness that crutchfield supplied (no splicing needed) and the adapters helped somewhat since I just used my stock rear deck speaker as the bracket. Highs are great, however, i do wish there was a little more bass but that is what a sub is for. Overall, I'm satisfied.
Pros: Easy install, great looking ascetics, and crisp highs.
Cons: More bass!
I really enjoy these speakers they are very clear have good mids and can handle good power with out distorting I have nothing negative to say about the speakers
Pros: Good sound can handle more than it says it can
These are wonderful speakers. They replaced a set of blown stock speakers that rattled. These sound crisp and work well with the stock stereo headunit. Couldn't ask for a better and more affordable speaker.
Pros: - Sound - Price - Ease of installation - Crutchfield customer service and installation instructions
got these for my grand daughter pathfinder and they sound great and got them at a great price.
Pros: sound great and easy to install
Cons: none so far
Great sounding speakers!
Pros: Sound great and we easy to install
the rockford fosgate speakers were not that hard to install in my wife's Corolla. then I turned up the radio and was blown away! they did exactly what I wanted them to, made the system sound better! I would recommend getting these for your system.
Pros: ease of install, sound quality
The speakers are great. Direct replacements for my factory ones. Clear rich sound.
Pros: Easy insallation. Great sound.
Very good replacement for factory speakers good value would like a little more bass but overall very good
Pros: GreAt value
Easy to install and was a great price
Pros: Price, sound
I needed replacement speakers for the front doors in my 2014 Nissan Maxima. After blowing one, I certainly didn't want to replace it with another factory unit. The technical team was great about walking me through the install since they didn't quite have up to date info on my model year. The quality of these speakers are great and the sound is clear. Can't wait for them to break in so I can crank it.
Pros: The highs are very clear and the music has new definition to it. these handle power so much better than the factory speakers that I can hear the back speakers struggling.
Cons: Nothing so far.
Easy install, great sound for a decent price speaker
Great speakers for the price
Pros: Fast shipping, good packaging and sound better than the original speakers
First set of Fosgate speakers I have ever purchased and I like them well in the front doors. Thanks to the folks at Crutchfield for the customer service and for the supplies needed to get me rolling no issues with installation and install was a breeze.
Pros: Great sound, Great Customer Service
Bought to replace factory speakers. Kept factory head unit and wanted speakers that would work with system output! These speakers are perfect. Much better sound quality and decent bass. Nailed it!
Pros: Good bass, and the sound quality is excellent!
Cons: Door panel removal!
I needed replacements for blown factory speakers that were 19 years old. The folks at Crutchfield helped me find this set of rear speakers to match the front already in my cart. These sound great and the look on my sons face when he heard them for the first time was priceless. Now my 17 year old has the best car audio in the family.
Pros: Great sound. Great price.
Cons: They did not install themselves.
Great sound, simple speaker, clean appearance and a good value.
Pros: Tweeters are smooth, not harsh, good bass response, clear sound
Cons: They were for my son's car and not mine.
I have a 2015 Chevy Colorado. The stereo in it sounded pretty good, but I wanted to see if a speaker upgrade might make it sound even better. I bought a set of these, along with the required adapters and installed them in the front doors. After getting them installed and taking a listen, I was not happy. The factory speakers actually sounded better to me than these did. I think it is because the factory speakers in the doors were simple one-way speakers and they're paired with smaller mid/tweeters in the dash. After installing these Fosgate 2-way speakers the high frequencies seemed to be out of time-alignment or something. It seemed to be "ringy" and just didn't sound good. I took them back out and put the stock speakers back in and after listening again I'm actually much happier with the way the stock speakers sound. I really wish I had bought these Fosgate speakers from Crutchfield instead of seeking what I though was a better price elsewhere though! If I had bought them from Crutchfield I would be able to return them now, but the site I bought them from doesn't accept returns on opened merchandise. Lesson learned I guess. I'll try and sell these on craigslist or something now.
If you're installing these as a replacement for old or fried speakers they'd probably do just great though. The speakers themselves sounded pretty good, just not along side other tweeters in the dash I guess.
Speroior product for the money
Surprised at how good these sound for the low price. Used in a dodge caliber. Install was a breeze with the included quick connectors. Will still distort at higher volumes but much better then factory.
Pros: Value for price, better mid, and highs
Cons: Distort with even a little bass
Sounds super clean and clear. Everything was fine until I amped it and started to crank the volume.
Pros: Sounds super clean at moderate volume
Cons: If you crank the volume, especially with an amp, you will blow the speaker very easily.
2014 jeep patriot w/ boston acoustic sound system, replaced the door speakers (front and rear) the sound is crisp and highs are well defined. Does not provide much on the bass end but that's ok I like to hear the other parts do the music. Adds a nice balance to the sound system.
Pros: Good price, solid sound quality
Cons: Not much bass
Great full sound
Pros: Easy install
Excellent speakers and amazing sound.
Outstanding quality sound
For the price these speakers are well made and should give me many years of service. Mid range is clear and nice. The bass is actually pretty loud but not as deep and rich as I would have liked to hear. With that said ,,,,they are priced correctly. I am running a stock deck and these speakers matched up to it just fine.
Pros: good price, well made, loud bass, works well with a stock deck.
Cons: bass is loud but needs to have more depth. But is is after all just a 6x9.
Great price for this brand. Just as I thought, they sound incredible.
I had some concern from an earlier review about how they would sound at higher volumes but took a chance anyway. Very glad that I did! These replaced the factory stock speakers in the front doors of my 2009 Nissan Rogue and run off the factory radio. The treble and bass are very well balanced and remained clean to volumes much higher than what the factory speakers ever came close to... with far better bass response! (thumpity-thump!) Installation went well but the factory screw mounts did not line up perfectly. Using the original mounts, I was only able to do 3 of the 4 mounts for each speaker. The screws were beefy enough and they mounted solid enough that 3 out of 4 were quite adequate and there's no rattle. Very happy overall!
Pros: Great sound range and bass response using factory OEM radio
Cons: Screw mounts did not line up with OEM speaker mounts on front doors
Worth the money. I'd buy these again.
Pros: Loud clear
Cons: None really, if you have them powered right.
I replaced the factory speakers in my new 2014 silverado with this product . Keep in mind I kept the factory installed stereo and like clean sound at moderate levels. Good price and nice tight bass. Crutchfield included metro mounting brackets at no charge. GREAT !
Pros: Price and sound
The sound is VERY good for this level of speaker
I was looking for something to replace a blown speaker in the driver-side door of my 2006 Nissan Pathfinder. I replaced the stock CD/stereo a few months ago, and with "bass boost" I accidentally blew the speaker out. The online help agent was able to set me up with this pair of speakers, based on my requirements: not too expensive, decent sound, and an easy fit (with no special mounting brackets) for my car. Overall, these fit the bill, and I'm very happy with them so far. The price is right and the sound works for me just fine.
Pros: The sound is pretty good, and the price is pretty good, too. Also, the instructions were helpful in getting the interior panels off to replace the speakers.
Cons: A slight fitting problem. I did not use the mounting screws that were used with the stock speakers. I found some screws I had laying around that worked, and only used 3 of them per each speaker as the holes did not line up perfectly.
Let me start off by saying this is the cheapest pair of speakers I've ever bought. My most recent setups had Eclipse, MB Quart, and Boston components. These we're for my wifes Rogue. At moderate volumes, I was actually quite impressed by the clarity of these speakers. But as soon as I tried to push them, I would hear a horrible scratching from the tweeter at certain frequencies. Mind you, I'm talking volume levels to cover wind noise from having the windows down. So not deathly loud but louder than average. I'm not sure what I expected from Rockford's budget line. For the average listener or the rear deck, these will be wonderful speakers. For those wanting clear, loud music, or for a front speaker install, save a little more money and go ahead and get some nice components.
Pros: Good value, clean highs at moderate volume. Bass extended surprisingly low.
Cons: Noticable distortion at higher volumes. Push them with an amp or keep the volume down.
I installed these in the front doors of my 2012 Suzuki equator. I went with these per Crutchfield's recommendation and am very happy with them. Compared to the factory speakers these rock! Give them about a week and a half break in period and they really come to life. Thanks Crutchfield!
Pros: Price, quality, richness of sound after break in.
Very good deck speakers at a good price
Pros: Clear vocals, clear base, no distortion and very little rattle
Cons: I have nothing bad to say about these speakers
I would have given it 5 if the installation went easier. Mounting hole didn't line up and new speakers where taller than originals. There should be some clarification in the instruction on how to modify. I was under the impression that the would fit without modifications. That said they sound great and the modifications weren't exceptionally difficult.
Pros: Speakers sound great
Cons: Installation was more difficult than expected do to mounting holes not lining up. Also the speakers are taller than original forcing some modification.
I had a hard time deciding what to get when I went to Crutchfield store. I tried several different configurations but when I heard the Rockford Fosgate Prime R169X2 I knew. These speakers sound very realistic; but sound quality is very subjective You can find yourself hating these speakers if you only want bass response. These are nearly perfect cones, meaning they cover a full range of the frequencies you need to appreciate music the right way; but again, sound quality is very subjective.
Pros: Warm sound
Cons: None. I love them!
Sound awesome. In my 2012 Jeep Compass.
Pros: Took maybe 15 mins to install, perfect fit!
Great sound paired with Alpine head unit without separate amp. Had some trouble with installation instructions provided.
Pros: Good sound and quality.
Cons: Installation instructions didn't work. Tried to top mount them using original 8mm screws but holes don't line up and factory grills won't fit (speaker sits too high). I drilled holes out to 1/4" (be careful not to hit rear window) and mounted them on the bottom using bolts, nuts and washers.
Sounds great in my 1967 Caprice,Perfect fitment in rear deck with out any modification keeping car looking original .
Pros: Perfect fit with no modification .Bolt in and plug in .
My speakers are a lot better than I exspected.
Sounds great for how much I paid for everything. I would definitely buy these again
Pros: Good bass
I bought these speakers to replace the factory rear deck speakers in my 2002 Mazda Protege. They were worth every penny I paid for them, the difference in sound is very noticeable.
Pros: -Great upgrade for factory speakers -Can use factory speaker grills -Can use factory mounts
Cons: There was a hiccup installing them in the rear deck, the screw holes did not line up with my rear deck holes (they were only off my a 1 or 2 millimeters), this was fixable by useing the screws that came with the speakers and driving them at a angle until they fixed themselves.
These speakers sounds good with any music, I love the crisp and sharp sounds even give you a little bass. I'am going tell all my friends about these speakers.
Pros: They are great sounding with any music you listen to.Great stuff from Rockford Fosgate.
Cons: None I really like these speakers.
Sound pretty bad. Also, barely fit the application due to (1) basket is barely able to fit into Mazda's standard subframes [not for inexperienced installers], and (2) larger-diameter magnet pushes back against Mazda's standard rubber backing due to diameter [NOT due to depth, which is OK].
Pros: Works, but barely as to fitment.
Cons: Fitment is really not suitable for the application.
