About the Rockford Fosgate T2652-S
As always, Rockford Fosgate hits hard
As always, Rockford Fosgate hits hard
Bold design. Innovative use of materials. Pure, muscular sound. These are the hallmarks of a Rockford Fosgate speaker, and exactly what you'll find with the T2652-S component system.
Each 6-1/2" woofer sports a carbon fiber/polypropylene injection molded cone for stunning accuracy and powerful impact. The 1" tweeter offers the extended high-frequency response that only an aluminum dome can deliver, and several mounting possibilities give you plenty of options to dial in the high end. Rockford Fosgate's versatile external crossover also lets you bi-amp these components to deliver more power to your woofers and tweeters for enhanced performance.
The aluminum phase plug gives some T2652-S woofer some bling (and better sound dispersion).
Tweaks for the connoisseur
Rockford Fosgate knows a good thing when they've created it. You'll find their impressive VAST technology at work here, which uses the butyl rubber surround to increase the woofer cone area by 25% for better bass response. Rounding out the robust, polished look, Rockford has incorporated a billet aluminum woofer phase plug to enhance cooling, sound dispersion and . . . well, to just look awesome.
An easier install
Every installation poses little challenges along the way, and Rockford Fosgate has equipped the T2652-S system with some useful features to help. The woofers feature a slot mounted frame pattern to fit a wider array of factory screwholes in your car door. If speaker mount fabrication is a requirement in your car, Rockford Fosgate makes that job a little easier with the included Multi-OEM Adapter plate for woofers and their Discreet Dual Clamp design for tweeters. Grilles are also included for custom installation.
Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

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.
Rubber Surrounds: The 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.
Phase Plug: Each woofer's billet aluminum phase plug enhances voice coil cooling.
VAST Surround: The Vertical Attach Surround Technique (VAST) increases a speaker's effective radiating cone area without increasing the size of the basket.
FlexFit: The Flex Fit frame utilizes slots (where possible) instead of single screw sized holes; allowing slight adjustment of the speaker when mounted.
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.
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.
Multi-OEM Adapter: For mounting flexibility, the included brackets allow installation in 6x9 applications. When using the brackets the mounting height is 0.611" and the depth is 2.344" (top mount).
Note: The bracket is generic (cutout sized for a 5-1/4) and requires modification before the T2652-S will fit into it.
Tweeters: The tweeters are 1" aluminum domes offering outstanding dispersion and clarity.
Mounting: The tweeters have multiple mounting configurations; choose flush or surface mount. The Discreet Dual Clamp (DDC) flush mount system provides concentric clamping pressure around the perimeter of the opening. The surface mount housing can be positioned at two angles, approximately 15° or 30° angle. Depending on the mount used, the installed dimensions are:
|Flush||Surface 15°||Surface 30°|
|Mounting Depth||0.903"||Screw Depth||Screw Depth|
Tweeter Level: A switch on each crossover allows you to adjust the output level of the tweeters; -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.
Specifications: The crossover slope is 18 dB/octave high pass and 12 dB/octave low pass. The crossover point for both is 3 kHz.
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. (When using only two amplifier channels, leave the bi-amp switch off and use the tweeter inputs.)
Wiring: The crossover inputs and outputs are set screw clamps; they will accept bare wire up to 10-gauge.
- Width: 4-5/8"
- Height: 1-3/8"
- Depth: 4-5/8"

I custom installed these in my 2007 Ford Focus, along with sound deadening, speaker baffles, upgraded wiring, aftermarket head unit and running off a RF T400x4ad. I was blown away with the quality of the mids and highs. For the price of these, I'm not sure you could find a better product.
