Memphis supplies logo-stamped grilles if you have plans for a custom installation.

Superior sound staging

Experience the superior sound staging of component polypropylene dome tweeters, which handle detailed delivery of the high frequencies. A polypropylene woofer cone handles the low frequencies, and an external crossover optimizes each driver's performance.

Product Highlights:

  • component speaker system includes two 6"x9" woofers, 2 tweeters, 2 external crossovers
  • polypropylene woofer with polyurethane surround
  • polypropylene dome tweeter
  • 2-way external crossover
  • handles up to 60 watts RMS (120 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 51-20,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 90 dB
  • woofer top-mount depth: 3- 1/16"
  • woofer grilles included
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

What's in the Box:

  • 2 Woofers
  • 2 Tweeters (with attached 16" wire terminated with quick-slide connectors)
  • 2 Crossovers

  • 2 Woofer grilles
  • 2 Flush mount housings (with tweeters installed)
  • 2 Flush mount retaining rings
  • 2 Angled surface mount housings
  • Two 6' Crossover input wires (tinned bare wire on both ends)
  • Two 12' Tweeter wires (quick slides on one end and tinned bare wire on the other)
  • Two 12' Woofer wires (quick slides on one end and tinned bare wire on the other)
  • Eight 1-3/8" Pan head screws
  • 8 Speed clips
  • Four 3/4" Flat-head screws

Not worth the money

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

6x9s work fine, tweeters never made a sound. Bought 8 dollar tweeters locally and hooked them into the crossovers and they've been working fine

Pros: Midrange component works fine

Cons: Cheap tweeters lasted longer than the one day the Memphis tweeters lasted

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have a 2003 jeep grand Cherokee wj with the infinity amp-speaker option. The tweeters did not work any more so I replaced the dash and front doors with these. I used the crossover for the tweeters and they sound a lot better than factory speakers. My next upgrade will be the 6 1/2 in. component for the rear doors

Pros:

Cons:

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Running just these through a Pioneer head unit and MB Quart amp in the front doors of my 2005 Tacoma, nothing in the rears. Fully impressed by these speakers, the bass you can get from them is fantastic and the separation between frequencies is good as well. Highs fall a little into the background but I have also not zero'd in on my tuning yet.

Pros:

Cons:

Best components I've had

These are awesome on just the stock head unit but will be powering them soon with 4 channel amp. If you have the basic sound system for Ford F-150 do yourself a favor and buy these.

Pros: Highs and bass

Cons: None so far

Great speakers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Heard a lot about these speakers so I figured I would give them a try. Could not be happier. They sound amazing as I am running a JBL 5 channel amp as well to power these speakers. I would recommend these to anyone.

Features

Tweeter Mounting: The tweeters offer multiple mounting options; choose a flush mount, surface mount, or angled surface mount. The tweeters are shipped in the flush mount housings and the angled surface mount housings are included. The back of the flush mount housing and the top of the angled surface mount housing combine to create the (non-angled) surface mount housing. Once installed in any of the housings, the tweeter will pivot slightly to optimize imaging.

Crossover: The crossover's inputs and outputs are screw terminals that will accept bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.315" wide.
