Infinity Reference X REF-3002cfx
3-1/2" 2-way speakers
Our take on the Infinity Reference X REF-3002cfx by Crutchfield's John Pollard
Designed for more clarity
Do you want to hear the details you've been missing in your car's sound system? You'll enjoy exceptional clarity from Infinity's Reference X Series REF-3002cfx 3-1/2" speakers. Infinity uses PEI balanced dome tweeters to bring out all the details in your music without sounding harsh.
Larger woofer for fuller sound
The REF-3002cfx features tough polypropylene woofers and durable hi-roll rubber surrounds that deliver strong performance. Each Plus One+ woofer sports a significantly larger cone than speakers of similar size, adding plenty of punch to the speaker's smooth and accurate highs.
Great for any power supply
You can power these speakers with up to 25 watts of RMS power — they'll work great with an external amplifier, but they're also a good match for a factory or aftermarket stereo. Plus, Infinity comes up with a safe way to get a little more power out of your system — these 3-ohm speakers combine with the speaker wire in your vehicle so your car stereo sees actual 4-ohm impedance. Grilles are not included — factory grilles are appropriate for most installations.
These speakers are really a pain to replace but once done it will be totally worth it. The stock speaker had no high end and these are a good upgrade

Plus One+ Woofer Cones: Each speaker uses a cone significantly larger than other speakers of the same size. This is accomplished by using a unique basket design and hi-roll surround. The Plus One+ design offers greater bass output and an increase in efficiency.
Hi-roll Rubber Surrounds: The hi-roll rubber surrounds allow the woofers a greater range of movement, resulting in longer X-max and more bass output.
Tweeter: Each speaker has a balanced dome tweeter. A semi-dome tweeter has a dome placed inside a cone. Balanced dome tweeters are semi-dome tweeters with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the tweeter.
True Four Ohm Impedance Technology: The speaker's 3-ohm impedance combined with the impedance of your speaker wire provides a true 4-ohm load to your connected head unit or amplifier.
Power Handling: Although Infinity rates the 3002cfx speakers at 25 watts RMS (continuous average), they also recommend amplifiers with a power rating from 5 to 50 watts RMS.

If you're running them straight from head unit, you should be able to adjust the internal crossover to keep bass from entering those speakers [ MELVIN Oct 13, 2016 ]
No they dont [ Matthew Oct 13, 2016 ]
Yes, Crutchfield didn't tell me they did, but now that the tweeter in one is blown, they tell me I should have used bass blockers with them. :-( [ KENNETH Oct 12, 2016 ]
The mounting hole for these speakers are 3 1/8 inches in diameter. [ MELVIN Jul 11, 2016 ]

1 answer Hi there, I have two Infinity Reference speakers (3002 cfx). I am building a small portable PA system using Topping TP20-MK2 MKII TA2020 Class T-AMP Digital Mini Amplifier 25WPC or Lepai Tripath LP-2020A+Class-T Hi-Fi Audio Mini Amplifier. Both amplifiers are for 4-8 ohm speakers. The Infinity Reference speakers are 3 ohm speakers. Since I don't intend to install them in the vehicle, which thickness of the wire I should use so that the amplifiers sees actual 4-ohm impedance? The length of the wires are max 120-150 cm (50-60 in). Sorry my English is not my mother language. Kind Regards John [ John Mar 12, 2014 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: We would recommend using 16 gauge speaker wire with those Infinity speakers. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy Mar 15, 2014 ] Staff
