Features

Mica Injected Polypropylene Woofers: The woofer cones are mica injected polypropylene. This material is light weight and rigid for decreased distortion and improved bass response.

Tweeter: The 1/2" Mylar tweeters are a balanced dome design. A semi-dome tweeter has a dome placed inside a cone. Balanced dome tweeters are semi-dome tweeters with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the tweeter. Out of the box, the tweeters are mounted in the flush mount housings. An angled surface mount housing is also included, and the back of the the flush mount housing and the top of the angled surface mount housing are combined to make the (non-angled) surface mount housing. Once mounted, the tweeters swivel so you can direct them toward the listening positions.

Tweeter Dimensions:

  Frame Diameter Frame Width Frame Depth Cutout Diameter Mounting Height Mounting Depth
Flush Mount 2.125" N/A N/A 1.83" 0.34" 0.752"
Surface Mount 1.815" N/A N/A N/A 1.1" 0.66" (Screw Depth)
Angled Surface Mount N/A 1.815" 1.845" N/A 1.661" 0.59" (Screw Depth)

Crossovers: A 6 dB/octave high-pass crossover is integrated into the case of each tweeter. The woofers have two spades on each terminal; the wire from the tweeter, as well as the wire from the source are connected there.

Q
2002 Chevrolet Silverado. Can I plug the tweeters into the factory wiring harness or do I have to run them into the back of the woofer? I know there are connectors on the back of the woofer for the tweeters but I would much rather be able to unplug them from the factory harness versus having to take both tweeter and woofer out when removing the door panel from the truck.
[ Lawrence  Jul 14, 2020 ]

Not 100% sure on your model. But on mine my tweeters are in the dash. I plugged mine directly into the mid range and extended wiring up to dash. So if I have to remove mine I just unplug from mid. Also I believe its a good idea to plug into the mid for the same front right left balance??

Q
I have a 2004 Tundra with the factory JBL system. I am planning on also purchasing the Pioneer AVIC-5201NEX receiver. Will the tweeters in this system fit in the factory location or does "surface mount tweeter" mean just that - I must surface mount the tweeters and, somehow, bypass those that are in the door?
[ Joel  Aug 01, 2019 ]

These will not fit into your factory locations. you would be replacing the stock one in the system, and these would need to be surface mounted or your would have to make significant modifications to fit the in your door/panel.

Q
I have a 2002 XJ Sport. Recently bought these speakers. Haven't installed them. I'm wanting to use the Alpine-KTP445U on my stock headunit. Is it worth running these speakers on that amp? Or is it a waste to amp these up? I'm not trying to go all out on a stereo upgrade. Just an improvement on my stock setup. I mostly listen to rap and trance in my car.
[ Brandon  Jun 02, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
These Rockford's are a sensitive speaker, so stock stereo power will drive them, but it's never a bad idea to add an amp to any set of speakers. The Alpine KTP445U is a great amp to go with in this application. You're only going to be overpowering them very slightly, so no harm in using that amp!

[ Weedle  Apr 04, 2019 ]

You can but you will burn them out if you decide to crank up the volume. I would recommend to have speakers that take more watts than the amp, just my opinion. That way you know for sure you won't blow out the speakers.
[ Luis  Apr 17, 2019 ]  Staff
A
Should be fine. It is always to have extra power and reduce the gain at the amp. Usually they sound better when they are not push to the limit ( both amps and speakers). The speakers are 80 Watts peak

[ Dan  Mar 05, 2019 ]  Staff
A
It depends if yours has the pillar tweeters or not. You can fit 6.5 or a 6x9 in your vehicle so you should be all set. Now with your head unit it may not be the best unit out there but it will work. Just do not crank it up to high because you will get distortion. I would recommend a amp for you in car speakers to help or a stronger head unit.

Q
I'm looking at putting these in the door of my Silverado. What ohm rating am I going to be looking for? I wanted to run a 4 ohm 4 channel amplifier, and power 2 8" mid bass speakers off of the same 4 channel amp.
[ rcolsenjr  Apr 02, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
The Rockford Fosgate Prime R165-S speakers are conventional 4 Ohm impedance so, when connected to an external amplifier, you can expect to get the amp's rated output for 4 Ohms.

These speakers can definitely work with the power of your Pioneer radio because they can handle 2-40 watts RMS and that Pioneer outputs 14 watts RMS for each.

[ JEREMIAH S  Apr 07, 2017 ]
5 answers

Technically I think so, but that's all your high end / vocals. So you will just have a lot of mid-tones and bass if you leave them out. You should look at getting a 2 or 3 way speaker that fits your rear door. There should be lots.
[ Scott  Apr 26, 2017 ]  Staff
A
Sure, but it would be a crime to do so! Plan it out just a bit more, I've never heard of someone regretting extra work for tweeters!
[ David  Apr 07, 2017 ]  Staff
A
Jeremiah, I installed my set in a 2002 GMC Seirra Pickup in the front doors. My original setup included separate tweeters, so it wasn't necessary to leave them out. But, I don't see why you couldn't lead them out. You will lose some high end response however.
[ David  Apr 07, 2017 ]  Staff

Jeremiah, I installed the speakers in 1967 F100 and used the retro housings for them, because there was just one speaker in dash. The speakers sound great so I would say use the tweeters. my opinion Tim
[ Tim  Apr 06, 2017 ]  Staff
A
Well I left mine off and kept he factory ones. They say I should have replaced them but I didn't. It does sound a little better but I did the rear speakers also. Even with all the door speakers replaced, there was not a huge improvement so do not expect it. The factory radio, if that is what you have is detuned and it sucks. If you you want better quality plan on replacing the head unit. There is another company called Taco Tunes that makes a tuner and amp that plugs into the factory head unit if that is what you want. I want to give it a try but just haven't had the time to deal with it.

[ Alex  Mar 20, 2017 ]
2 answers
A
You can connect them directly, but you take a chance on mismatched power levels and mismatched crossover slopes, as well as the chance that the factory stereo has pre-equalized the sound to the tweeters. It'll work but your'e better off hooking up these speakers as intended.
[ Gregory  Mar 20, 2017 ]  Staff

No there is no crossover supplied. The Prime series is primarily for factory replacement and no other upgrades. They sound good at low wattage, but if you're adding an amplifier I would go with something in The Punch or Power series. Both of which come with a passive crossover.

[ Ben  Oct 17, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
The factory door woofers and tweeters are wired in parallel so, if you plan to power the speakers with the stock wattage, you'll need to connect the factory tweeter's input & output leads together in order for the woofer to still get the power & signal. As a result, you will want to use the crossovers provided with the components and run new wire from it's outputs to the separate midbass and tweeters. I hope that helps.

[ Tara  Aug 04, 2016 ]

A
A component system has a separate tweeter and woofer, so you get 4 independant speekers. Where a 3-way has the the tweeter, crossover and woofer built into one unit, so only two assembled speakers will come in the box.
[ Zachary  Dec 09, 2016 ]  Staff
A
Alright Tara, not sure about the install, usually the Crutchfield site will tell you what you need for install in your car when you select it. As for the difference between 3-way and component; the major difference is assembly. A component speaker set has and mid range woofer and separate high pass filter, and the high range tweeter. If your powering the speakers with a separate amplifier I 100% recommend the component setup. If you just want beetle than stock speakers I would stick with a normal 3way. Install will be easier with the 3way.
[ TANNER G  Aug 05, 2016 ]  Staff

As long as your speaker door holes are for the size of speaker you should be fine. Might need to get wire connectors from wires in door and cut the custom fitting on your speakers came with your 300C. Component system and 3 way...3 way has highs, mids and subwoofer...so basically your treble, mid-range and bass all in one speaker...component has speakers in the door and then your tweeters as well...I would prefer the 3 way speaker for best sound....hope this helped somewhat, have a good day!!!

Are the foam surrounds durable as compared to rubber surrounds?
[ joeyl  Nov 22, 2015 ]

No! Foam will never be as durable as Rubber. Now with that said, will the foam outlast the speakers life, or the usefulness of the speaker...probably. If you plan on keeping your car forever, live in very dry hot environments and listen to EDM I'd say go for the rubber. If you listen to talk radio, don't plan on keeping your car for more than 5 years and live next to the beach, foam will be fine. As for sound, that is subjective. Some people have seen UFO's too.

Not required but can be helpful. Have these in the rear of my Tundra and they sound great mated to an aftermarket head unit. Granted its getting 30 RMS. I would say you'd be fine as long as the head unit is supplying >20 watts RMS. YMMV and hope that helps.

Depends on your head unit. You need to make sure the speakers impedance matches. Also how many watts your stereo has to push them. I didn't need an amplifier and mine sound awesome

No, just replace old speakers with these.

I have a 2000 LX accord sedan, I'm trying to get some better sound than stock, but without an amp. Will these sound good with a aftermarket alpine deck?

Yes they will. I have an alpine CD receiver and they sounded great!! Especially with an alpine radio because they have a lot of tuning options.

They are good highs. Also get 6x9s for some thump. Country sounds good. Rap not so much

Hello, I do recommend getting an amp as I installed these without an amp and sure they sound good but you're not using them to their full potential. Also since you have an aftermarket deck they will sound even better with the aftermarket amp. But if you're not going to buy an amp might as well keep the stock speakers since most factory amps only push less then 20 watts also not only will it benefit the speakers it will also benefit the deck.
