Rockford Fosgate Power T165-S

Overview

Our take on the Rockford Fosgate Power T165-S

Rockford Fosgate builds their Power line of speakers for the true car audio enthusiast. The Power T165-S component speaker system utilizes advanced design elements to ensure that they'll deliver superior sound in your vehicle for a long, long time. The lightweight 6-1/2" woofer features a polypropylene cone that's reinforced with strong carbon fibers — it'll keep its shape when you're pushing the speaker hard, so you'll hear accurate midrange and bass reproduction.

Rockford Fosgate builds their Power line of speakers for the true car audio enthusiast. The Power T165-S component speaker system utilizes advanced design elements to ensure that they'll deliver superior sound in your vehicle for a long, long time. The lightweight 6-1/2" woofer features a polypropylene cone that's reinforced with strong carbon fibers — it'll keep its shape when you're pushing the speaker hard, so you'll hear accurate midrange and bass reproduction.

Treated fabric tweeter

The separate 1" treated fabric dome tweeter makes the high frequencies sparkle, so mount it up closer to your ears for optimal imaging. Superior components eliminate the "hot spots" and dropouts caused by inferior crossover networks. You can select from three tweeter levels to get the best match for your vehicle, and you'll even find a switch that optimizes the sound if you can't mount the tweeters facing directly at you. These speakers will handle up to 80 watts RMS so you'll want to connect an external amplifier to get the most out of them.

Rockford Fosgate innovations

Rockford uses their proprietary VAST™ technique to increase the woofer's cone area without increasing the size of the basket. This larger cone gives you deeper lows and more power handling, and it's supported by a durable rubber surround that's designed to last a long time. The slots around the frame make it easier to install these speakers if the factory holes are slightly off, and they even come with plates that allow them to fit into oval speaker openings.

Great sound quality These T1's are well worth the money

Great sound quality These T1's are well worth the money

Pros: Great sound quality ozone quality not too bad on price

Cons: Hard to get adapter plate to act right ends up breaking it and having to make my own

real nice components

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Have these on my G coupe, real nice sound to these components. I have them wired to a JL 450/4 and blast them and still have crisp, clean sound. No distortion from the tweeters. It was an easy install, had a set of kicker components I replaced for these and happy I did. Recommended for serious audio heads that want that good quality equipment at a fair price compared to the beefy setups in the plus $700 range. The bass is fair from this set, just enough to give a warm sound. I have an amp/Sub combo enclosure from Kicker for my bass.

Pros: Loud, crisp, full sound.

Cons: none

Features

Injection-Molded Woofers: The woofer cones are injection-molded carbon fiber filled 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.

FlexFit: 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-S features StampCast steel baskets for added rigidity.

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-S will fit into it.

Mounting: The 1" treated cloth dome tweeters have multiple mounting configurations; choose flush or surface mount. The surface mount housing can be positioned at two angles, approximately 10° or 30° angle. Depending on the mount used, the installed dimensions are:

  Flush Surface 10° Surface 30°
Mounting Height 0.408" 1.060" 1.25"
Mounting Depth 0.911" Screw Depth Screw Depth
Frame Diameter 2.357" N/A N/A
Cutout Diameter 1.75" N/A N/A
Frame Width N/A 2.130" 2.130"
Frame Depth N/A 2.157" 2.153"

Tweeter Level: A switch on the side of each crossover allows you to adjust the output level of the tweeters to -2 dB, 0 dB, or +2 dB.

Tweeter Axis: Another switch on each crossover adjusts the tweeter output for on axis or off axis placement.

Bi-amp: The crossovers have discrete inputs for the woofer and tweeter, along with a bi-amp on/off switch, so each component can be powered by an individual amplifier channel.

Wiring: The crossover inputs and outputs are set screw clamps; they will accept bare wire up to 12-gauge.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Width: 4-5/8"
  • Height: 1-3/8"
  • Depth: 4-5/8"
