Our take on the Sound Ordnance™ P-65C

by Buck Pomerantz
Sound Ordnance

Why install component speakers?

A component speaker system gives you the best possible performance from your car audio system. A system consists of separate woofers, tweeters, and crossovers, each designed to cover one specific range of frequencies. As separate components, the woofer can move freely to deliver more powerful performance, while the tweeter can be custom-mounted in a better spot up closer to your ears, revealing a whole new world of detail. Separate crossovers are far superior to the simple filters wired into full-range speakers, so the components work together for smoother, more focused sound.

Win the battle for great sound. Sound Ordnance component speakers invade your car's listening space with clear sonic reproduction that'll mobilize your music. You'll enjoy the new life these rugged speakers bring to your system, all at a budget-friendly price.

The P-65C 6-1/2" component system sports tough polypropylene woofers that can handle just about any musical onslaught. Mount the separate 3/4" silk dome tweeters in a strategic spot, and they'll deploy all the musical details — you'll enjoy improved definition without harshness. Outboard crossovers direct the frequencies to the speakers for a balanced sonic attack. The black powder-finished stamped steel frames and handsome grilles tell you that these Sound Ordnance components mean business, while a 3-year warranty gives you peace of mind for the long haul.

Highlights:

  • component speaker system includes two 6-1/2" woofers, 2 tweeters, 2 external crossovers, 2 woofer grilles
  • polypropylene woofer with foam surround
  • 3/4" silk dome tweeter
  • 2-way external crossover with 2-position tweeter level control (0, -3 dB)

UGG!

Written By E.B., Tennessee mountains on Sunday, March 30, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
They might sound good, but never got them in my Chevy Colorado. HORRIBLE instructions - and I have installed many speakers and decks through the years. Never understood how to retrofit the new tweeters where the old ones were without goobering it up and not having them stable in alloted space. The other mid range speakers also didn't fit well even with the adapters and the crossovers ( OMG the crossovers! ) where in the world to you put those monsters within the door panel? So, overall, for my application, a very poor fit. Again, the sound of the speakers might be fantastic - just never got that far.
Pros:
They look pretty.
Cons:
Instructions - are you kidding me? Poor fit for my application.

Amazing differance

Written By Dennis, Gardnerville NV on Wednesday, January 22, 2014
 
I replaced my stock speakers in my 2011 RAV4. Using the stock radio the quality of sound jumped amazingly. The audio difference when playing Pink Floyd and Santana was well worth the time to install them. The separation of sound between left and right jumped to unexpected levels. For the money these are an excellent selection.
Pros:
Quality of sound. Easy to install

Installed in a 03 Toyota 4 Runner after fabricating a bracket for the tweeter and was suprised at the sound quality. Very nice highs. Great replacement for any factory componet speakers. Crossover is a bit large though. Was tricky finding the right spot in the door to mount.
Pros:
Affordable and great sound for the money.
Cons:
Needs a better documentation manual. Still had to drill holes in 6.5 adapter plate as hole do not match.

Upgraded from factory speakers to these components. Crossover was almost too large to hide behind the panel, but happened to pick the exact right place on the first try. Sound is great!
Pros:
Great sound without needing an amp from my aftermarket receiver. Good supplied tweeter hardware.

Need more descriptive installation instructions. Still had to drill spots in supplied woofer brackets for fit.

These speakers sound great, big upgrade from factory stuff. Went with these because I wanted a little more clarity then the old factory speakers. Very easy to install with the supplied mounting brackets. The tweeters were a different story. I had to disassemble the factory tweeters and re-drill the brackets that they were installed in. The crossovers were not necessary in my application.
Pros:
Sounds great
Cons:

Interesting - 2005 Corolla LE

Written By Jason, Edmonton, AB on Monday, June 17, 2013
 
Initial Impressions: Cheap looking, but nothing decidedly bad. Didn't like the looks of the small foam surrounds. Thanks for the FAST shipping!

Support: Crutchfield support is great, and has good hours. What is there more to say.

Install: I was provided GREAT instructions, and wire harnesses was nice, but the brackets did not fit properly with the speakers. There was no where for the screws to hit. I ended up cutting out the stock speakers, and using the stock speaker housing as the brackets (Soldering gun to cut out the stock speakers from plastic). It was not elegant, and a bit tricky, but worked.

Results: Nice clean sound. I never realized how bad my front speakers were. The stocks were choking out my rear 6x9 Alpine S speakers. Base is serviceable, but a slight reduction from stock. Tweeters are amazing, but annoying to mount in stock location. They look up to my Alpine type S 6x9s, but play in the same park.

Special Notes: Some have mentioned that the tweeters are a bit too bright. Well on mine there was a switch to lower the output to the tweeters by 3dB. That is for when they are mounted higher or pointed closer to ear level. Much better.

Don't think twice. Act Now!!!

Written By BBean, Junction City, Kansas on Saturday, June 15, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
As anyone buying car audio compentents at a decent price would assume, quality would not copete with the price. However, in this case, assumptions were iincorrect. At 33, I did not want something that would be screaming in my ears driving down the road I wanted something that would bring my music to life. Installation was of moderate difficulty. The supplied speaker adaptors required modification, and the supplied angle mount tweeter brackets were finicky to connect. Aside form those minor complaints, these speakers were WELL WORTH THE EFFORT. I purchased two sets to replace the stock speakers in my 2013 Outlander Sport. The factory head unit runs at 17W RMS and 35W Peak, and it has no problem pushing these speakers. I set the front crossovers to -3db to get rid of some of the tinniness, and left the back at 0db to fill the cabin with highs. These speakers are coupled with a 50W 8" Bazooka tube, also purchased through Crutchfield. Let me say, the Crutchfield flagships do not disappoint!!!! Give 'em a try, you won't be disappointed. These speakers added epth and definition to my music that wasn't there before.
Pros:
Excelent price, excellent sound, good depth, versatile mountin options
Cons:
tweeter mounts can be difficult to connect, speaker brackets require modification

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Installed in my wifes 2005 Toyota Corolla front doors. Barely fit the mids in the adaptor for the front door, but they did fit. Had to trim the sail panel for the tweeters, but they fit and looked good. Great mid and highs. Not as much bass as I was hoping for in a 6 1/2. Oh well. I am running it off a Pioneer head unit.
Pros:
price, fit, mids and highs sound great
Cons:
almost too big for my corolla, but made it work. not a lot of bass output, have the HPF at 200hz to minimize distortion.

Not Freaking Bad...

Written By Andrei S., Abingdon VA on Monday, January 07, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
First of all, don't expect these to sound like subs. That said, I got two pairs of these speakers for $84 right after Black Friday and I installed these in my B5.5 Passat and they're not bad using the stock head unit. They're not going to give you the greatest bass in a larger car but they're still okay considering my motor is really loud and I tend to drive with my window cracked. They'd be great for smaller cars, but in a car with more air space get some subs to help them along. I have the components set up for mids and highs with dual 12" Kenwoods for bass (2 Ohms, 600Wrms) and a Kenwood head unit.

Lastly, the speaker brackets suck and it took forever to install but finally got it done. Crutchfield support is awesome, as usual.
Pros:
Great sound, Durable build, Sound much better with a head unit and/or subs, Certain songs bump hard either way.
Cons:
Don't work great with the speaker mounts but not impossible, Not the greatest bass I've heard out of components.

Sound Ordnance P-65C

Written By Dean D., Huber Heights Oh on Tuesday, January 01, 2013
 
I purchased these as a replacement for the worn out factory speakers in my sons 2000 Nissan Frontier. The supplied speaker adapter plates did not fit the speakers, and did not align to the factory mounts. Easy fix, I re-drilled the factory mounts to accept the new speakers. I mounted the tweeters in the factory door location with some modification using one of the supplied mounting options. Since there is limited space in the doors, I opted to install the crossovers in the dash under the new head unit - so far so good. During the operational check, I found out that one of the crossovers had no output to the tweeter. After removing one of the door panels (again) to re-check connections and swapping the crossovers left to right my suspicion the crossover was bad was confirmed. Luckily I had some capacitors on hand I wired in place of the crossovers but not without modifying my original wiring set up (cut, re-solder, re-heat shrink...you get the idea). The bad crossover caused me about an hour re-work, but the end result turned out ok. I would have rated these higher if it were not for the defective crossover.
Pros:
Good sound for the money
Cons:
Bad crossover right out of the box, non-standard 6.5" speaker size, supplied adapter plates incorrect

Quality Sound

Written By Damien, Indianapolis on Sunday, September 23, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I was impressesed with the set up. I already owned the p-69 6x9's so the sound matched perfectly. You don't even need an amp to get high quality sound out of them. I recently purchased a Blaukpunt Toronto 420 BT deck to replace my old JVC, and they sound even better!! If your deck has the "loud" feature, you can turn it on for better sound, these speakers can definitely handle it. Plus, Crutchfield is awesome! Best customer service anywhere! They send you everything you need to install them. I would recommend to all!
Pros:
High quality sound for the price, easy to install, doesn't require an amp.
Cons:
Tweeter flush mount cracked during install, but crutchfield did replace for free!

Not quite what I had in mind

Written By Larseny63, Los Angeles, ca on Monday, April 02, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Bought this kit, recommended by the site, to replace the front door speakers in my Toyota sequoia 2003, with the jbl system. I only needed the woofers, I didn't need the crossovers or the tweeters, but didn't have much choice. The speakers sound ok, nowhere near as much bass as the old speakers, I find I have to crank up the bass on the amp more to get the same effect in the front, which gives out too much bass in the rear doors now. The speakers sound clear, I was expecting a better result considering the worn speaker was 10 years old, had gotten damp and ripped? Either the recommendation on the site was wrong, or I was supposed to replace everything including the crossovers, which seemed pointless, all I needed was a new woofer. Glad I bought the jeep adapter plates, still had to figure out some brackets to mount everything, but that went quick.
Pros:
Probably good speakers, the sound is crisp and clear
Cons:
As mentioned, disappointed with the bass response on most of the music I listen to.

I got a whole entry level system for my sons truck. All Sound Ordinance; 4 speakers, 4 channel amp and the 8 inch sub connected with a JVC head unit. I was not to impressed when i opened the boxes but i thought lets give them a shot. After everthing was connected I was blown away with how good it was for the price. You will not win any sound audio contests but if you want a good everyday audio system you will not be disappointed. PS: That little 8 inch sub is awesome I just wish it had mounting brackets.

I was optomistic when I ordered these speakers. I made custom door panels to mount them. I bought 2 sets of these. They came with a bunch of different mounts for the tweeters but I chose to use the flush mount. These sound great. I have a Kenwood 60 watt x 4 head unit and can't turn it up past half way. They are pretty loud with no distortion. The tweeters sound great. Not as bright as everyone else says. I decided to use the 0db setting. The woofers actually have a good bit of bass to them. I plan to use them for my highs and mid range speakers as i am waiting on 2 10" pyles and a 1400 watt amp to go behind my rear seat of my crew cab silverado.

good so far

These speakers work well so far, i don't have my amp or receiver hooked up yet so i can't really tell too much of a difference. I can tell that the sound is more clear coming out of them, the crossover made a big difference. My stock speakers had the same signal going to the woofer and the tweeter, so that is probably why is sounds better. that is why i only gave it 4 stars. I don't know the full potential yet.

Disappointed

Written By Matt, Northwest, PA on Monday, May 02, 2011

These are far better than the stock speakers in my old Sienna's "Premium" package but the tweeters are so bright it's hard to turn the volume up without hurting my ears even with the treble turned all the way down. The bass is very weak. Adding an amp (Alpine powerpack) helped the bass. Adding a small sub (Sound ordinance PT8, very nice by the way) helped too but they're still too bright. I wish I would have spent an extra $50-$100 on a set of brand name component speakers.

Beyond expectation!

Bought this set for the front and the P65 set for the rear of my wife's 04 Chevy
Colorado. Got the job done within a couple of hours. I did not expect to hear
what came out from the oem radio/cd player... it was an awesome "full and
clear sound"! I was amazed. It sounded better than the Alpine system I had put
in my Chevy Avalanche a few months ago. By the way, the instructions I
recieved with my speakers were very easy to follow with great illustrations.
Thanks for a great product at a great price. The attention shown in details
proves Crutchfield is a company that cares beyond the sale!

Sound Ordnance™ P-65C

Written By GeorgeB, Pittsburg, Ca on Friday, February 04, 2011

These Sound Ordance Component Speakers are the Bomb! Sound as good as
advertised, and the wife loves them in her Grand Am. The sound quality with the
separate tweeter is better than with the original integrated speakers. The installation
guide was excellent at what needed to be removed in order to replace the rear deck
speakers.
They sound so good, I'm getting some for my vehicle and would gladly recommend
them to anyone.

Sound Ordnance™ P-65C

Written By phild, illinois on Monday, September 27, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
They are made to look a lot more beefy in the pics, than in person. The first problem i had was they are smaller than my factory 6.5 holes in my front doors, so i had to fabricate the door to make them fit. Once installed and wired up to an mtx amp putting out 50 watts a channel i was even more dissappointed, my 5.25 jl woofer outperforms these 6.5's in every aspect, and r nearly the same size. The tweeters were placed on the dash at first but i couldnt even sit in the car they were so bright and harsh, so i ended up putting them down in the kickpanels, which helped to an extent, but still with them set at -3 they were still harsh. Oh yeah i read someone else say they had problems with looose speaker terminals, well so did I , both woofer terminals snapped off and dangle which causes a nice rattle. After being unable to tweak these to make them tolerable i ended up taking out the woofer alll together, and replacing it with my 15 year old jl audio vr 5.25 woofer and changed out the croosover units as well, and wow what a difference that made. With the tweeter on the jl crossover they lost there bright, harsh sound and paird with the jl woofer they make a good pair. Just wish when i spent my money on these i could of actually used the woofer and crossover, but instead i ended up paying this much for a set of tweeters, cause thats all i use from the set /

more than i expected

i have to say that i am really surprised that these speakers are very nice. they sound very accurate and clear. i got components so for my specific vehicle the tweeters are a bit bright. however the crossovers have a -3db setting which is nice but -6db for my car would be better. i am really happy that the sound is so realistic, if you are listening to high quality cd's it sounds very much like you are really there. but being 6.5" there is no low-end which is just the compromise that you have to make. crutchfield put there name with this brand and i knew that i would not be disappointed, i will recommend to all of my friends.

A very wise purchase.

My plan is to slowly upgrade my factory stereo in my 2005 Element as cash-flow permits
but I do demand top quality components. First step is replacing the 7 junk paper cone
factory speakers. I installed these in the factory locations including replacing the cheesy
Honda tweeters in the A-pillars with the ones in this set and since the factory stereo I'll be
using for a few more months actually has a dedicated output for the tweeters I decided I
would install these the same way and did not use the supplied crossover. What a
substantial improvement over the old speakers, I also replaced the rear door speakers
with Sound Ordnance P-65's (built in tweeter) and replaced the stock sub-woofer with a
6"Dual voice coil Bazooka. The system sounds so much clearer and has much more
depth, I'm very pleased with these speakers and when I add a better head unit & amp
down the road I will then add the crossover and believe they will sound even better.
Thanks again Crutchfield!

Low price, low quality

Written By Bob, San Jose, CA on Sunday, September 05, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I was surprised a component system could have this low price. I assumed, if it was a Crutchfield component offering, the components would be above average, even if the price was low. But after i installed and listened I say the crossover and tweeter are only average (or less), and the woofer is definitely below average.

I have a 1998 Sienna. The stock woofer was about 0.5" more diameter and weighed about 25% more. The stock woofer also did a better job since it was average. Crutchfield support was very good and they told me how to wire it so I could use my old woofer. They said to run the receiver speaker output to both the woofers and the crossover (in parallel). So only the tweeter is fed by the crossover. That was the safest way since probably my stock woofer characteristics are not matched to the crossover design. It does sound better without the Sound Ordinance woofer.

You can Do Better

Written By Santino, Aspen, CO on Saturday, September 04, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers were bought to replace factory speakers in a friend's Subaru Outback. There was way too much work involved due to the Subaru speaker mounts and the lack of room inside the door.

Upon opening the box, the first thing I noticed were the crossovers. They're huge and open on all four sides (the guts are fully exposed). I'm thinking that if the door ever gets water inside it, these crossovers are history.

The speakers themselves looked pretty nice, however, when we attached the speaker wires to the speakers, both speaker's wire clips came loose from the speaker body. This is a design and fabrication flaw within the speakers. They don't use a rivit, they punch a square through the wire clip mount, and push the square through a hole on the actual speaker frame. This square gets bent back to hold the clip in place. It doesn't hole it in place well, obviously. ONce hooked up and installed (3-4 hours with all the necessary changes required), they sounded OKAY....Not Great, not bad, just okay. Next installation I do, for a friend or myself, I'll stick with Infinity Reference or Polks. These pale in comparison, structurally and performance-wise. I'd neither use them again, nor recommend them.

well i was skeptical when i bought these but a rep Hogan ashore me they were a good product.when i received my order a day and a half after i order them (witch is quite fast for free shipping) i was still unimpressed,but i installed them anyway. after i installed each speaker i tested it and it seemed to sound like my polk speakers(low end polk) they they were replacing, so i still was not happy with them. So once i had all my speakers installed i gave it a test run and i have to say they are great speaker they handle way more power them my polk and the sound is clearer i am very happy i looked past my first impression and bought and then installed them i am happy to say i was wrong and these speakers are differently worth the money these are a MUST BUY. thank you Hogan

  • What should the crossover switch be set at? 0 or 3db? I'm also running a Sound Ordnance B-8PTD powered subwoofer. [ Kevin C   Mar 29, 2014 ]
  • yes do not give them too much power because the tweeters blow very easily [ CURTIS   Feb 03, 2014 ]
  • depends on what you are looking for... I am running my P-65C's off of alpine's "peanut" 4 channel amp and they sound great. [ ALEJANDRO   Feb 03, 2014 ]
  • I run my Sony ES XM-7547. It is 75 watt X4 at 4 ohms. Running a sub I kept these speakers from getting low frequency and I never found max volumn. They are very loud and very clear. [ MALCOLM   Feb 02, 2014 ]
  • Have a Nissan pathfinder with bose system I use factory amp [ DAVID   Feb 02, 2014 ]
  • They are definitely an upgrade from the stock speakers. However you will really hear the crisp highs with an external amp. The head unit doesn't have the frequency range to make components shine. [ JACOB   Feb 01, 2014 ]
