Built to rock
Install the T16-S tweeters higher in your vehicle for better stereo imaging.
Built to rock
Rockford Fosgate doesn't mess around when it comes to car audio. This Power Series T16-S component speaker system uses advanced design elements to ensure rock solid performance for the long road ahead. The lightweight 6-1/2" woofer features a polypropylene cone that's reinforced with strong carbon fibers — just what you need for accurate reproduction at high volumes. Rockford Fosgate also uses their proprietary VAST™ technique to increase the woofer's cone area for deeper lows without increasing the size of the basket. With power handling up to 80 watts RMS, you'll want to connect an external amplifier to make them really rock.
The separate 1" treated fabric dome tweeter gives the high frequencies a powerful presence in the mix. If you need to make adjustments based on the landscape of your car, Rockford Fosgate lets you select from three tweeter levels to optimize your highs.
When it comes to installing these speakers in your car, you'll appreciate the slots around the woofer's frame if your car's factory holes are slightly off. Rockford Fosgate even includes plates that you can modify to put the round woofers into a variety of oval speaker openings.
Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

Injection-Molded Polypropylene Woofers: The woofer cones are carbon filled, injection-molded 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 Basket: The FlexFit frame utilizes slots (where possible) instead of single screw sized holes; allowing slight adjustment of the speaker when mounted.
Size Classification Note: Rockford Fosgate calls this size woofer a 6". Because its measurements match traditional industry standard 6-1/2" speakers, and it fits traditional 6-1/2" applications, Crutchfield has typically referred the T-16S as a 6-1/2". Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.
Multi-OEM Adapter: For mounting flexibility, the included brackets can be modified to fit 5x7, 6x8, 6x9, and some special 6-3/4 applications. The brackets also have knockouts for mounting the tweeters. Please refer to the Crutchfield vehicle selector to confirm fit in your vehicle.
Note: The bracket is generic (cutout sized for a 5-1/4) and requires modification before the T16-S will fit into it.
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 Depth||0.912"||Screw Depth||Screw Depth|
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 12dB per octave.
Wiring: The crossover inputs and outputs are set screw clamps; they will accept bare wire up to 10-gauge.
- Width: 4-5/8"
