About the Rockford Fosgate T1682
Rockford Fosgate builds their Power Series speakers for the true car audio enthusiast. These Power T1682 6"x8" speakers utilize advanced design elements to ensure that they'll deliver superior sound in your vehicle for a long, long time. The lightweight polypropylene cone is reinforced with strong carbon fibers so it'll keep its shape when you're pushing the speaker hard. You'll hear accurate midrange and bass reproduction, while the 1" aluminum dome tweeter makes the high frequencies sparkle. These speakers will handle up to 80 watts RMS so connect an external amplifier to get the most out of them.
Rockford Fosgate innovations
Proprietary VAST™ technology increases the woofer's cone area without increasing the size of the basket. This larger cone gives you deeper lows and more power handling, and it's supported by a durable rubber surround that's designed to last a long time. Rockford Fosgate mounts the tweeter on an offset suspension system, minimizing any acoustic reflections from back of the tweeter and maximizing accuracy. And open slots on the frame make it easier to install these speakers if the factory holes are slightly off.
Grilles are not included; the factory grilles should be suitable for most applications.

Rockford Fosgate T1682 reviews
Installed these on a 2006 Ford F350 for front speakers and they are a good improvement over stock. It's a little tight using them as fronts but they work. Now I just need to get the rears.

Sound great, great price, only running on deck power i bet with a amp they would be really loud
Pros: Great price the speaker is a great fit

I purchased the T1682 speakers as direct replacement speakers for the 4 factory speakers in my 2006 F250 and the sound quality is amazing. These speakers bring all new life to the old ones I had. I have a JL Audio amp running these and they sound amazing! Installation was a breeze as they were like factory replacements.
Pros: Sound quality, fitment

One of the factory mids in my 04 Explorer (Eddie Bauer) went out, so I figured I would replace all 4 door speakers the same day. I initially bought 4 of these, installed the front set no problem (Crutchfield says they won't fit up front but they did fit in my rig). However these will not fit in the rear doors, so I returned one set and got a pair of Alpine SPR-68's for the rear. The head unit is an Alpine CDA-117, and it will run these OK at 18w RMS, however with an Alpine SWR-12D4 running off a 500w mono-block in the rear it became obvious real quick that these were going to need more juice to keep up. So I went back to the stereo store and picked up an Alpine PDR-V75 amplifier (they didn't carry the 4 channel PDR-F50). A few hours later I had it all installed and, wow these puppies came ALIVE! Took ~20 minutes to get everything dialed in just right, but once done it sounds amazing. My system used to have a dead spot between about 90-180Hz, not anymore. These mids put out clean, LOUD audio throughout the entire range of 90Hz to 22KHz when supplied with the proper power. With the mid amp gain set at half way it will get uncomfortably loud way before it distorts. I would have to say that these put out better lower end thump than the Alpine SPR-68's in the rear (the head unit is set for 80Hz cutoff to the mids). Have tested with Bass305, Rammstein, Enya, new popular music everything sounds awesome!
Pros: Clean, loud audio. Really nice highs (symbols etc..) Good lows (would not try to push them below 80 Hz)
Cons: Now I feel like I need a bigger sub amp.

Injection-Molded Woofers: The woofer cones are injection-molded carbon fiber and 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.
Butyl Rubber Surrounds: The butyl rubber surrounds dampen unwanted harmonic distortion while maintaining linear geometry under extreme weather conditions. This leads to less distortion, superior frequency response, and superior durability.
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.
Tweeters: Each speaker features a 1" Aluminum dome tweeter mounted to an offset cantilever to eliminate frequency response anomalies due to acoustic reflection between the woofer cone and the rear of tweeter.
Speaker Terminals: These speakers have 0.25" wide positive (+) terminals and 0.187" wide negative (-) terminals, which are too large for the vehicle-specific speaker harnesses supplied by Crutchfield for many vehicle applications. It is recommended that a pack of assorted female quick slides (item number 120FQS10PK, sold separately) be purchased and spliced to the harnesses to adapt them to the speaker terminals.
