Our take on the Helix Esprit E6X

by John Pollard
HELIX

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.

High fidelity with excellent imaging

Helix's German engineering pedigree really shows up in their Esprit Series speakers, which offer big technological bang for the buck. The E6X 6-3/4" speakers use an adjustable 3/4" silk dome tweeter that you can tilt and rotate to improve imaging in cars with less than optimal tweeter placement. Each speaker features a rigid 6-3/4" woven fiberglass cone that delivers tight midrange and bass reproduction, while the durable rubber surround helps this speaker provide exceptional sound for years to come.

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

Woofer Materials: Each woofer cone is made of woven fiberglass and has a durable rubber surround. This woven fiberglass material is very light and extremely stiff, minimizing cone flex and resulting in faster transients and finer detail.

Tweeters: Each speaker has a 3/4" silk dome tweeter with a neodymium motor structure. The tweeters also rotate and can be tilted (up to approximately 25°) so you can direct them toward the listening positions.

Magnet cover: The E 6X are shipped with a rubber magnet cover to protect the speaker. If the cover is removed the depth changes slightly:

  • Top Mount Depth: 2.467"
  • Bottom Mount Depth: 2.627"

Size Classification Note: Crutchfield has traditionally referred to this size speaker as a 6-3/4", while some manufacturers, including Helix (Audiotec Fischer), call it a 6-1/2". Please refer to the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to confirm fit in your vehicle.

Great coaxial.

Written By Steve, Atlanta on Thursday, December 05, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great tonality from these sixes. They have a great lively sound and are well balanced. I like them better than several options I tried beforehand costing both less and more.
Pros:
Detail without dryness or harsh treble. Great balance.

Great little speakers

Written By Warren, Salt Lake City on Sunday, October 14, 2012
 
I had these installed in a 2009 Toyota Matrix. They replaced the stock 6.5" speakers. I have a Rockford Fosgate R250 4channel pushing them. They sound great. They are pretty good at all frequencies. The deepest basses aren't there, but for 6.5" inches they will have people thinking you are really good at hiding a 8" or even a 10" subwoofer.
Pros:
Quality materials used. Sound great. Won"t break the bank.
Cons:
None I can think of after a week of using them.

Clear Sound in my Prius

Written By Jay, Findlay, OH on Saturday, August 18, 2012
 
Will fit in the rear doors of a 2012 Toyota Prius. There is ample room for them in the door using SAK036, 1/4" speaker adapters.

UPDATED 2/4/13: The bass completely disappears when the temperature drops to around 15 degrees F.
Pros:
Nice clear sound at higher volumes
Cons:
None
