Product Research

Features

PEI Dome Tweeter: Each speaker has a PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide) dome tweeter. PEI is a polymer film that produces a wide soundstage to improve imaging.

Woofer: The woofer cones are made of water-repellent treated paper.

Size Classification Note: Some manufacturers, including Hertz, call this size speaker a 6-1/2". Because it requires a larger cutout than a standard 6-1/2" speaker, Crutchfield has traditionally referred to this size speaker as a 6-3/4". Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.

Customer Q&A

3 questions already asked

Q
Do I need an aftermarket amp for these or can I keep my factory amp?
[ Chris  Jan 05, 2021 ]
3 answers
A
These should function just fine on most factory amps. However it is recommended to use an aftermarket one, as they are usually more powerful, and would really help these speakers reach their full potential.
[ Nate from NH  Jan 06, 2021 ]
A
I installed mine without an aftermarket amp and they sounded fine.
[ BRIAN  Jan 05, 2021 ]

I'm running my factory Bose amp with these and they sound great.
[ KRISTOFER  Jan 05, 2021 ]
Q
Which amp pairs well with these?
[ Dan  Jul 18, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system.

Q
Would these do good in a motorcycle type installation?
[ YepitsDrew  Aug 28, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
If you can get them to fit I would think yes. They are efficient and play louder for the same power. They're also a little bright, this might help hearing over road noise. I really like mine. A significant improve over OEM.
