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.
The aluminum woofer cones offer clean, accurate midrange reproduction and
superior power handling.
woofer uses a Thermal Plastic Rubber (TPR) surround for extended speaker life
and improved bass response.
The spider has the job of centering the voice coil and providing the rear
suspension for the speaker. The Fanatic Q Component system woofers use a flat
spider to ensure great sound with long life and durability.
Cast Aluminum Baskets:
Cast aluminum baskets inhibit speaker resonance
for superior sound.
Each 1" tweeter features an inverted aluminum dome suspended by a
Thermal Plastic Rubber surround. The tweeters are driven by powerful neodymium
magnets, resulting in higher power handling and superior detail.
Mounting Options: The
tweeters may be flush, surface, or "wedge" mounted. The "wedge
mount" sockets are surface mounts that hold the tweeters at a fixed angle
(may be mounted to provide a 10 or 60 degree angle). The tweeters must be
installed using one of the three sockets.
tweeters come installed in the flush mount sockets.
To remove the tweeter from the socket, turn the tweeter counterclockwise, then
lift it out of the housing.
Tweeter Mounting Dimensions:
Mount" (fixed 10 or 60 degree angle)
degrees) or 0.957" (10 degrees)
Butterworth Crossovers: The
crossovers feature a 24dB/octave, 3.2kHz high-pass network for the
tweeters and a 12dB/octave, 3.2kHz low-pass network for the woofers. The steep
slope of the high-pass network allows the tweeters to handle greater power,
while the low-pass network provides for a seamless transition between the
tweeter and woofer.
Compression Tweeter Protection:
This built-in protection circuit includes two incandescent bulbs and limits
power to the tweeter when the "danger" threshold is exceeded. This
method of protection is inaudible because the circuit simply limits power and
does not shut the tweeter off. The bulbs are user replaceable.
0dB/-3dB/-6dB Tweeter Output Level: There
is a jumper pad located on the crossover circuit board that allows you to select
full output level (0dB) or attenuated (-3dB or -6dB) tweeter operation. This
allows you to match the tweeter output level with the woofer output level for
balanced response. Typically, when the tweeter and woofer are mounted so they
are about the same distance from your ears, the jumper is left in the 0dB
position. When the tweeter location is much closer to your ears than the woofer
location, the jumper should be set to the -3dB or -6dB position.
Phase Switch: This
0-degree/180-degree switch allows easy comparison of tweeter phase without the
need to disconnect speaker wires. The switch should be set in the position that
produces the best response.
The crossover inputs and outputs are gold-plated screw terminals.
are 3 mounting holes in the base of each crossover.

manual lists separate sensitivity specs for the woofer (92dB) and tweeter
(90dB). The sensitivity figure listed in the Crutchfield database is the average
of the two individual sensitivity specifications. The average sensitivity (91dB)
is given because it more accurately represents the overall sensitivity of the
system; this permits a better estimation of the power needed for clean, high
