Overview

Our take on the Rockford Fosgate T2652-S

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.

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.

Phase plug

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.

Jeremy from Sugar Grove, IL on 2/15/2019

2009 Honda Fit Sport
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am running 2 pairs of T2652's off a RF T400X4AD in a 2009 Honda Fit. They are INSANE. The quality of build, the versatility of tweeter mounting options and the incredible sound make these a complete no-brainer purchase. The tweeters are very bright; the crossover allows you to cut or boost tweeter output by 2 dB, and I have all 4 of mine cut. The soundstage and imaging is FANTASTIC. Very, VERY pleased with these speakers!

Pros: Imaging, versatility with tweeter mounting, power handling

Cons: Heck no!

Jason from Wahiawa, HI on 8/31/2018

2007 Ford Focus ZX4
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Pros: Best bang for your buck! Amazing quality when properly tuned. Crisp highs, surprising amount of mid-bass.

Cons: The tweeter surface mount pods were a very very tight fit, and damaged the protective screen on 1 tweeter, and bent the dome when trying to install them :-/.

2010 ram 1500

Jeremy from Punxsutawney, PA on 6/12/2018

Installed the 6.5" midbass in my 2010 ram 1500 front door and used the angled tweeter mounts to mount the tweeter on my sail panels. These speakers are loud and clear. I'm running mine amplified with 170 rms per pair, they need at least 100 rms. After these speakers break in, they have amazing detail and bass. I was honestly shocked. I read a lot of reviews on these and all of the reciews said they were reccomended for the price, and now I see why. Go with these and you will not regret them.

Pros: Very accurate midbass, angled tweeter mounts, and good quality crossovers. Things crank!

Cons: Absolutely nothing

I was amazed how quickly my speakers arrived. When I opened the box, i was pleased to see how well it was packaged. I haven't installed the speakers yet, but I have heard them at a car show and that is what sold me. I'm sure once installed, the speakers will sound and look great. Thanks Crutchfield.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These components will blow you away. Super loud and clear. I got my old school punch 300.2 amp pushing a set of these for front stage. Has strong mid bass. Tweets were ear piercing so I set mine to 0db.

Pros:

Cons:

Awesome Mid bass, Clear highs

shawn from GA on 1/8/2018

Love, love, love these speakers. I have them paired up with a Rockford Fosgate Prime 300.4 and they are great. Very clean highs, and the mid bass is emaculeant. Even more sore if you have them mounted nice and solid with some sound deadening backing them up. I was very pleased with these speakers. Would deff recommend them to anyone.

Pros: solid bass, clear highs, run pretty efficient off 45-50w of amped power. Tweeter mounting hardware is very very secure.

Cons: strong magnet, careful with things located behind speaker.

This is my third set of these. Great speaker but magnet is strong so be sure that you have some space behind it so it does not get stuck to something it does not need to.

Pros: Well built and great sound

Amazing, super clear tweeters- hard hitting mids.......teamed up with rockford t400 amp, 8" underseat woofer, ad rockford dsr1 processor. !6' civic is "Loud n Proud"

Pros:

Cons:

Good overall

Clairbear from Knightdale, NC on 6/26/2017

The speakers are really really good and very clear. They also have good power, however, when you push them the highs are too bright. I find myself backing off the volume on some songs because the highs are just too sharp for me. Other than that, no complaints. One thing I will say is that enthusiasts will argue that for the price you can probably get a better speaker but that's all subjective.

Pros: Clear and loud

Cons: Bright highs

Great product

Daniel from Kick panels on 2/8/2017

Very impressed with the performance of this set. I would recommend them for sure.

Pros: Can handle power.

Cons: None.

Awesome!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent Sound! Great power handling capability and extraordinarily clear sound. The tweeters can get a bit "sizzly" at times but that can easily be eq'd out. Give them at least a couple weeks to break in, then they truly sound amazing!

Pros: Clean sound, power handling, quality

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Had them install today 12 Feb 2016 it is a significant difference from my stock front door speaker only problem was I didn't do my research to find out that I need an amp to get some power out of those puppies :-( even with stock wiring I can hear a major difference in my vehicle definitely must buy!

Pros: A major difference in the stock speakers sound vs rockford fosgate speakers

Cons: needs an amplifier to power up the speaker

Woofers
Tweeters
Crossovers

Woofers

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

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 Height 0.4" 1.043" 1.342"
Mounting Depth 0.903" Screw Depth Screw Depth
Frame Diameter 2.355" N/A N/A
Cutout Diameter 1.75" N/A N/A
Frame Width N/A 2.141" 2.141"
Frame Depth N/A 2.160" 2.155"

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.

Crossovers

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.

Crossover Dimensions:

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