Better components give you better detail

The Prime R165-S 6-1/2" component speaker system sports stiff mica-injected 6-1/2" polypropylene woofers that deliver strong drums and bass, along with clean reproduction of the midrange frequencies. The separate Mylar tweeters add the excitement of strong high-frequency response to your music without a trace of harshness. Built-in crossover networks divide the frequencies going to each driver, so all your music plays faithfully. Grilles are included.

Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

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.

A
I wanted component speakers for my XJ Cherokee because the old paper factory speakers are located down by my feet and adding a tweeter up top should help a lot with sound imaging. These were also less expensive than many of the other component speaker sets with similar specs. Since I'll be mounting the tweeters in a non-factory location, I'll be using the grilles that come with the speakers and I wanted something that didn't look tacky. These fit the bill perfectly. [ Brandon  Jan 24, 2018 ]

The set has good specs. This set has the highest sensitivity, 92 dB, in my budget range. The low end is only 60 Hz but I will add a sub-woofer some day. Rockford has a good rep and, lastly, they will not stand out visually and tempt someone to break in the car.. [ Gary  Nov 10, 2016 ]

A component system gives you more flexibility to tailor the sound of your environment to your specific tastes. Mounting the mid-bass in a factory door or shelf position and the tweeters up higher on the a-pillar or dash will enable you to create a more immersive and expansive sound-stage.

Q
What wiring adapter kit should I get for my 2000 audi stock wiring to make sure these speakers are connected properly?
[ Baker  Sep 06, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
Daniel, to determine what wiring harness ( if available) is right for your vehicle, I would reach out to one of our advisors, as if a harness is available, we would need to qualify the specific year, make, model, and trim. https://www.crutchfield.com/support/ContactUs.aspx

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 ]
1 answer
A
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!

Q
I have a 2 channel amp rated at 80 x 2 RMS, is it too much for my RF R165-S (40 RMS)?
[ Weedle  Apr 04, 2019 ]
2 answers
A
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 ]
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

I am not sure, Teck services should be able to help you with that answer. I installed them in my wife's 2006 Honda Pilot and they work and sound Great! there is some modifications that you might have to do, I had to do some on mine but nothing you wouldn't be able to do I am sure.

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 ]

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.

It is best to hook them to the mid range because it has a crossover built in.

There are in line cross overs in the wiring. Great for plug and play. Good if you have little space for an active crossover.

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. You might consider calling an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 to discuss your listening preferences and get a personal recommendation on this match.

I don't know if it will fit your vehicle or how they will sound with the pioneer deck, but I have them in my 2011 Jeep Wrangler with a Kenwood deck and they sound great, way better then stock.

[ JEREMIAH S  Apr 07, 2017 ]

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 ]

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 ]
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 ]

Better sound with them. I didn't have a factory spot either, so made one to fit. If you can't find a spot, go without the tweeter

A
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 ]
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.

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.
[ Zachary  Dec 09, 2016 ]

They are built in
[ Gaspar  Dec 09, 2016 ]

There is no external crossover. Aso far as I know, nothing is built into these speakers either. I had them in my Jeep, running off a Kenwood deck, and it was adequate at best. If you use an amp they'll probably be good. Jeeps have terrible acoustics anyway
[ Papa J  Dec 09, 2016 ]

I have a 2009 toyota rav4 without the JBL sysytem. If I buy these to replace my front door speakers and tweeter, do I need a new crossover, or is there one already in my car?
[ 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.

Will these need to be custom installed in a 2007 Chrysler 300 C? What's the difference between a component system and the 3 Way speaker?
[ Tara  Aug 04, 2016 ]
3 answers
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 ]
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 ]
A
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!!!

Q
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.

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.
