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 Woofers: The woofer cones are injection-molded
carbon fiber and 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.
Tweeters: Each speaker features a 1" Aluminum dome tweeter
for outstanding dispersion and clarity. The tweeters are angled so you can direct
them toward the listening positions.
FlexFit Basket: The Flex Fit frame utilizes slots (where
possible) instead of single screw sized holes; allowing slight adjustment of
the speaker when mounted.
StampCast Basket: The T165 features StampCast steel baskets
for added rigidity.
Mounting: The T165 a 6-1/2"
speakers are sized to mount in standard three-hole and four-hole 6-1/2
applications. They can also be easily mounted in 6-3/4 applications, but because
the extra screw holes create an air leak in the larger opening, speaker baffles
must be used.
Multi-OEM Adapter: For mounting flexibility, the included
brackets can be modified to fit 5x7, 6x8, or 6x9 applications.
Note: The bracket is generic (cutout
sized for a 5-1/4) and requires modification before the
T165 will fit into it.
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 supplied by Crutchfield for many vehicle
applications. It is recommended 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.
