Overview

Our take on the Helix Esprit E6X

Esprit Series E6X 6-1/2

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.

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.

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.

Cons:

Great little speakers

Written by: Warren from Salt Lake City on 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 from Findlay, OH on 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

Product Research

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.
