Plus, Infinity has added convenient features for getting just the right sound for your ride.

Edge-driven silk dome tweeters

Infinity employs an edge-driven design in their silk dome tweeters for a smoother, more open response and minimal distortion at high volume. With a frequency response that peaks at 40,000 Hz, you'll have what you need to hear a new level of detail in the car. Dial in your sound even more and adjust the tweeter level using the control button on the separate crossovers.

Plus One+ woofer technology

Kappa's glass fiber woofer will hold its shape when the power's cranked up, so you still get punchy and defined bass. Glass fiber weighs less than traditional materials, so you don't need a ton of power to drive this woofer either. Infinity's Plus One+ woofer technology extends the cone right up to the edge of the basket, giving you lots of surface area — and a bigger cone means more bass to complement the superior high-frequency response.

Premium crossovers

Infinity holds their external crossovers to the same standards as the rest of this speaker system. Premium components shape the distinctive Kappa sound and bring out all the details that make your music sound real. These crossovers will easily accommodate an upgrade to a 3-way system if you'd like to add Infinity's optional 203S and 303S midrange drivers.

Awesome power handling, no matter the system

These 3-ohm speakers boast ultra-high sensitivity so that you can power them with a factory radio or aftermarket stereo, but you'll get your best results feeding them plenty of power from an outboard amp. Either way, these speakers' low impedance safely takes advantage of every watt of power available for exceptional performance. Enjoy Kappa sound quality at any volume.

Grilles are not included; the factory grilles should be suitable for most applications.

Features

Plus One Woofer Cones: The Plus One woofer cones offer more surface area than other speakers that fit in the same size opening. This is accomplished by using a new basket design and hi-roll surround. The result is greater bass output and an increase in efficiency.

Terminals: The woofer input terminals are set screws that will accept up to 12 gauge bare wire.

High-Output Design: The high output 3Ω voice coil design compensates for the high in-line resistance of small gauge factory wiring and extracts every watt from factory receivers, increasing overall system output and efficiency (relative to 4Ω speakers). The speakers also benefit from increased power when you upgrade the wire and add aftermarket amplifiers, designed to power a 3Ω load.

Edge Driven Tweeters: The ¾" edge-driven tweeters use silk domes. An edge-driven tweeter has better dispersion characteristics and allows for a lower crossover frequency than typical tweeters of the same size, which improves imaging. The result is improved vocals and musical clarity. The 6" speaker wire attached to each tweeter is terminated with male quick-slides (0.187" positive and 0.110" negative).

Tweeter Mounting: The I-Mount tweeter mounting system and Starfish mounting brackets give you several different ways to mount the tweeters:

  • I-Mount Tweeter Mounting System: The tweeters can be surface or flush mounted with Infinity's innovative I-Mount system:
    • Surface Mount: Surface mounting the tweeters involves screwing the surface-mount cup to the mounting location, then inserting and locking the tweeter into the cup.
    • 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 into the hole. The large plastic locking nut is threaded onto the adapter (from behind the mounting surface) to hold the complete assembly securely in place. When flush mounted, the tweeters may be angled for optimum response and imaging.
  • Starfish Mounting Brackets: The Starfish mounting brackets allow the tweeters to be installed in factory locations behind the grilles:
    • Surface Mount (behind grille panel)
    • Flush Mount (behind grille panel)
    • Bottom Mount (to grille panel)
    • Flush Mount (in-dash location)

Cutout Diameter N/A 1.610" N/A 1.656" N/A 2.828"

Crossovers: The input, tweeter output, and woofer output wires are attached to the crossovers; each is 8" long and terminated with tinned bare wire. Each crossover has a tweeter output level switch; choose between flat and -3dB. Each also has a 2-way/3-way switch used when adding the matching midrange to upgrade the system to 3-way.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Width: 4⅛"
  • Height: 1"
  • Depth: 1⅞"

3-Way Upgrade: The included system crossovers are gap-selectable, to accommodate a midrange upgrade. The optional Kappa 203S and 303S midrange (item numbers 108K203S and 108K303S, both sold separately as a pair) include the band pass crossover to upgrade this two-way system to a three-way system with perfect tonal balance.

Q
What is the recommended high pass crossover setting coming into and feeding this 2 speaker component system?
[ Audio-student  Mar 10, 2023 ]

A
Greetings John, and thank you for your question. If you are using the included crossovers, they will take in full range, then the crossovers will do their job and separate highs and lows and send them off to the woofers, and the tweeters. If your going to be adding a subwoofer and cutting out lower frequencies to these Kappas before the crossover, cut them off close to where you have your subwoofer cuts in, or a bit lower.

Q
Does the rms power rating of 80 watts increase when you add the midrange speaker and make it a three way component setup?
[ TRAVIS  Jan 09, 2023 ]
1 answer
A
Yes when you add one of the optional midranges to the component system you would want to factor in the added wattage when calculating the total RMS.
[ ARIELLE H  Jan 09, 2023 ]  Staff
Q
Installing Infinity Kappa 503CF component speakers into front doors of 2009 Pontiac Vibe with existing tweeter and 5.5" speaker. How do I wire the new speakers thru the infinity crossover-do I connect the factory tweeter and 5.5 speaker wires together then connect to the infinity crossover?
[ Michael  Aug 25, 2022 ]
1 answer
A
The 5-1/4" woofers and 3/4" tweeters in this set each have their own connections to the crossovers. The wires for the woofer and tweeter should not be connected together, but instead each should be connected to its respective wire on the crossover. If you purchased these speakers from us, our Tech Support team will be happy to help in greater detail over the phone. Our toll-free Tech Support number is printed on your invoice, and is also available under the "My Orders" tab in the "My Account" section of our website. If you did not purchase the unit from Crutchfield, then you may want to contact the manufacturer.
[ ZACHARY  Aug 25, 2022 ]  Staff
Q
I ordered 3 sets of these speakers for my 2003 Ford excursion. Should I be using an amp to get desired power to all the speakers? If so what would a recommend one be? How would I go about setting it up? Sorry for the stupid questions, have never upgraded a stereo before.
[ ROGER  Nov 28, 2021 ]

A
I didnt order an amp. However, you will get the best sound from all of your speakers with an amp. As for which one, I dont have that answer. I'm sure a Crutchfield assistant can determine that for you.
