High-Output Design: The
high output 2-ohm voice coil design compensates for the high in-line resistance
of small gauge factory wiring and extracts every watt from factory receivers, increasing overall system output and efficiency (relative to
4 ohm speakers). The speakers also benefit from increased power when you upgrade
the wire and add aftermarket amplifiers, designed to power a 2-ohm load.
Edge Driven UHF Dome Tweeters:
Each speaker has an Edge-driven UHF dome tweeter. The
benefit is increased power handling and reduced distortion at high output. This
technology also allows for better integration with the mid/woofer. The tweeter
wire terminals are set screws, tightened using the included 1mm Allen wrench;
they accept bare wire up to 14 gauge.
Tweeter Mounting: The I-Mount tweeter mounting system and Starfish
mounting brackets give you several different ways to mount the tweeters:
- I-Mount Tweeter Mounting System: The tweeters can be surface or
flush mounted with Infinity's innovative I-Mount system:
- Surface Mount: Surface mounting the tweeters involves
screwing the surface-mount cup to the mounting location, then inserting
and locking the tweeter into the cup.
- Flush Mount: Flush mounting is made easy through the use of
the threaded flush-mount adapter and plastic locking nut. Once a cutout
is made, the flush-mount adapter (with the tweeter installed) is
inserted into the hole. The large plastic locking nut is threaded onto
the adapter (from behind the mounting surface) to hold the complete
assembly securely in place. When flush mounted, the tweeters may be
angled for optimum response and imaging.
- Starfish Mounting Brackets: The Starfish mounting brackets allow
the tweeters to be installed in factory locations behind the grilles:
- Surface Mount (behind grille panel): Once the Starfish
bracket is trimmed, it is screwed to the mounting surface behind the
grille panel. Then, the tweeter is inserted into the bracket and locked
- Flush Mount (behind grille panel): Once the Starfish bracket
is trimmed, it is dropped into the cutout in the mounting surface behind
the grille panel. Then, the tweeter is inserted into the bracket and
locked into place.
- Bottom Mount (to grille panel): Once the Starfish bracket is
trimmed, it is secured to the underside of the grille panel. The tweeter
must be inserted into the bracket and locked into place before the
bracket is mounted.
- Flush Mount (in-dash location): Once the Starfish bracket is
trimmed, it is dropped into the cutout in the dash. Then, the tweeter is
inserted into the bracket and locked into place.
