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.
"AIP" (Aluminum Injected
Plastic) Woofer Cones: AIP cones offer lower mass than conventional
polypropylene cones, but have additional rigidity which prevents cone flexing
common to poly and paper cones. The AIP cones offer tighter bass response and
smoother high frequency response than is typically experienced with flexible,
higher mass poly and paper cones.
Surrounds: For improved
durability, the woofers use rubber surrounds.
"EXP" (Extended Pole
Design): Allows for increased cone travel (cleaner SPL), lower distortion,
and better heat dissipation.
The 1" silk dome tweeters offer smooth, accurate highs.
Tweeter Mounting System:
- Flush Mount: Flush mounting
is made easy through the use of the threaded flush mount adapter and plastic
locking nut. Once a cutout is made, the flush mount adapter, with the
tweeter installed, is inserted through the hole. The large plastic locking
nut is threaded onto the adapter, from behind the mounting surface, to hold
the entire assembly securely in place.
- Flush-Angle Mount:
Flush-angle mounting is made easy through the use of a threaded flush-angle
mount adapter that installs exactly like the flush mount adapter. In this
application, the angled tweeters provide optimized cross-car high frequency
- Surface Mount: Surface
mounting the tweeters involves drilling two holes, one for the wires and one
for the mounting screw. The mounting screw is simply run through the
mounting surface and into the back of the tweeter.
- Dash Mount: If you want to
install the tweeters in your dash, the dash mount adapters will fit into
3-1/2", 4", 4"x6", 5-1/4", and 6-1/2"
openings. Each adapter has two mounting tabs that are diagonal from one
another. From the end of one tab to the other, the adapter is 6.514"
long. Each tab has three mounting holes, allowing you to space the screws
from 3.324" to 6.122" apart.
Tweeter Mounting Dimensions:
supplied crossovers include a 12dB/octave, 3000Hz/6000Hz high-pass filter for
the tweeters and a 12dB/octave, 3000Hz/6000Hz low-pass filter for the woofers. A
single switch allows you to choose 3000Hz or 6000Hz filter operation.
Tweeter Output Level:
Each crossover has a 2-position switch that allows you to select the tweeter
output level according to system requirements and personal preference. The
switches may be set to "-3dB", or "0dB" to tailor the
tweeter output level according to personal preference.
are 2 mounting holes in the base of each crossover. The crossovers are not
weather proof, so they should not be mounted in locations, such as door panels,
that will expose them to direct contact with water.
Plated Crossover Terminals: The
crossover terminals are gold-plated for corrosion resistance.
