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.
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
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:
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.
