Overview

Our take on the Rockford Fosgate T1650-S

Rockford Fosgate designed the Power T1650-S component speaker system for people who won't put up with inferior sound in their cars. Each 6-1/2" woofer features a responsive carbon fiber/polypropylene cone and Santoprene rubber surround that'll stand up to hours of high-volume jams. The separate 1" dome tweeter provides clear, extended highs that can hold their own when the bass gets heavy. The included external crossover network sports selectable tweeter levels and on/off axis switching, allowing you to sculpt the high frequencies to your car's interior.

Crossover networks

Rockford Fosgate includes external crossover networks with selectable tweeter levels for fine tuning your sound.

Signature Rockford Fosgate design

Proprietary VAST™ technology increases the woofer's cone area without increasing the size of the basket, giving you  deeper lows and more power handling. And open slots on the heavy-duty aluminum frame make it easier to install these speakers if the factory holes are slightly off, especially in certain European imports.

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

Features

Injection-Molded Woofers: The woofer cones are injection-molded carbon fiber filled polypropylene. This molding process assures a uniform cone thickness for superior linearity and clarity. It is also light weight and rigid for decreased distortion and improved bass response.

Klippel Verified: The Klippel distortion analyzer, a device that uses a laser and sophisticated software to do large-scale analysis of drivers in motion, lets Rockford Fosgate optimize the speaker's motor structure, voice coil alignment, and suspension to yield the best possible performance.

VAST Surround: The Vertical Attach Surround Technique (VAST) increases a speaker's effective radiating cone area without increasing the size of the basket.

FlexFit 2 Basket: The FlexFit 2 frame utilizes slots (where possible) instead of single screw sized holes; allowing slight adjustment of the speaker when mounted.

Size Classification Note: Some manufacturers, including Rockford Fosgate, 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 woofer as a 6-3/4". Please refer to the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to confirm fit in your vehicle.

Mounting: The 1" treated cloth dome tweeters have multiple mounting configurations; choose flush or surface mount. The surface mount housing can be positioned at two angles, approximately 10° or 30° angle. Depending on the mount used, the installed dimensions are:

  Flush Surface 10° Surface 30°
Mounting Height 0.40" 1.092" 1.340"
Mounting Depth 0.912" Screw Depth Screw Depth
Frame Diameter 2.136" N/A N/A
Cutout Diameter 1.75" N/A N/A
Frame Width N/A 2.128" 2.128"
Frame Depth N/A 2.151" 2.144"

Tweeter Level: A switch on the side of each crossover allows you to adjust the output level of the tweeters to -2 dB, 0 dB, or +2 dB.

Tweeter Axis: Another switch on each crossover adjusts the tweeter output for on axis or off axis placement.

Bi-amp: The crossovers have discrete inputs for the woofer and tweeter, along with a bi-amp on/off switch, so each component can be powered by an individual amplifier channel.

Slope: The crossover slope is 18 dB/octave high pass and 12 dB/octave low pass.

Wiring: The crossover inputs and outputs are set screw clamps; they will accept bare wire up to 10-gauge.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Width: 4-5/8"
  • Height: 1-3/8"
  • Depth: 4-5/8"

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Great sale price and appears to be a beefy high quality speaker. One that will fill in mid base well and complement my JL 10W3 well. [ F  Jul 14, 2018 ]
taylor said they would be a excellent fit for my application [ jack  Jan 29, 2018 ]

1 question already asked

These are rated at 80 watts rms each channel. I'm assuming your 2 channel 300w amp is 150 watts rms each channel. That is border line too much power in my opinion, but I think you can get away with it just be careful when cranking up the volume. If you already have the amp I'd say go for it, but if you are buying a new amp I would get one that is 100 watts per channel. I currently have these in my car with 100 watt rms per channel rockford amp and they sound amazing. [ Brian  Apr 04, 2018 ]
Well I have them on a 600 power 4 channel amp and they seem to want more power [ jack  Apr 04, 2018 ]
