Hear the details you've been missing in your car's sound system. Infinity's Reference Series REF-3022cfx 3-1/2" speakers offer exceptional clarity, thanks to 1/2" balanced textile dome tweeters that bring out all the details in your music without sounding harsh.

It's all in the details

Hear the details you've been missing in your car's sound system. Infinity's Reference Series REF-3022cfx 3-1/2" speakers offer exceptional clarity, thanks to 1/2" balanced textile dome tweeters that bring out all the details in your music without sounding harsh.

Big woofer = big sound

The tough polypropylene woofer with its durable hi-roll rubber surround delivers surprisingly strong performance from such a small speaker. 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.

Perfect for any power supply

You can power these speakers with up to 25 watts of RMS power — they'll work well with an external amplifier, but they're also a good match for a factory radio or aftermarket stereo. Plus, these 3-ohm speakers combine with the speaker wire in your vehicle so your car stereo sees actual 4-ohm impedance, so you get a little more volume out of your system. Grilles are not included — factory grilles are appropriate for most installations.

These speakers blow the stock one away.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've had these in for a month now and am very impressed. They really improved the sound stage with clear, crisp highs yet not too bright. Infinity included blockers with the speakers which was a nice bonus I wasn't expecting.

Pros: Fit and quality sound reproduction.

Cons: None.

Incredible sound in a small package

Dan from Porterville, CA on 12/22/2016

1981 Mercedes-Benz 240D
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The sound quality is excellent. I have been pleased with these speakers and they fit my 1981 Mercedes Benz 240d W123 body style without and major modification. I slightly bent the tangs so the tweeter fit comfortably under the dash cap. I purchased a Blaupunkt CD Radio player to replace the original Blaupunkt and the Infinity speakers both in front and back make it a pleasure to go on even short trips up town.

Pros: These speakers have a fantastic sound. If you enjoy listening to music these are the speakers to purchase.

Cons: None

Easy installation, they sound great and fit perfect. You can't beat infinitys sound or quality!

Pros: Much better quality and sound than my factory Toyota speakers.

Cons: Plug and play would have been nice, but installation still wasn't bad at all.

Clear mids and highs

Spencer from Knoxville, TN on 9/2/2016

2015 Toyota 4Runner
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I replaced the factory dash tweeters with these speakers in my 2016 4Runner without JBL audio. Compared to the factory speakers, they provide a slight upgrade. These speakers offer a little more clarity in the highs and vocals, but they don't have the ear-piercing tweeters like the last set of Infinity Reference 6.5" speakers I had 10 years ago. The biggest improvement that I've noticed is that I can hear pianos and some of the upper-mid frequencies better with these speakers. I have them wired through the factory harness which includes a bass blocker, mounted using a 2" mending plate and the XTC 3.5" speaker baffles which I cut a hole in the bottom of for the wiring. I'm satisfied enough with these speakers that I'm going to stick with them, but as always, I think I would've gotten a little more if I'd have been willing to spend some more cash.

Pros: Upper-Mid Range Clarity Price Efficient (91dB) Don't need an amp

Cons: Tweeters aren't what I expected

Better than expected

Caleb from Wichita Falls, TX on 6/28/2016

2012 Chevrolet Camaro
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The sound of these speakers isn't shy of the $300 alpine speakers I have in the front of my Camaro, they are very loud and crystal clear. Little to no bass comes from them, but they do a great job at hitting the high notes

Pros: High pitch

Cons: No bass

Great upgrade from OEM

Timothy from Scottsdale, AZ on 6/19/2016

2013 Chrysler 300
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Finally decided to do this upgrade for my dash speakers of my Chrysler 300. Was hesitant to dig into the A pillars and dash defroster grille but it turned out to be really easy. No tools needed, just fingers. You Tube it. This is same as for Dodge Charger and probably Challenger. The Infinity speakers fit great and the Crutchfield supplied leads/wiring harness adapters fit perfect. Don't procrastinate...if you have a Mopar with the crappy OEM speakers (supposedly Alpine but their name isn't anywhere on these made-in-China posers) then you need to upgrade right now! Crutchfield ordering, delivery, and packaging were just fine.

Pros: The speakers sound awesome! I thought my hearing was going as I approached 55. OEM sounded ok, just lacked punch and liveliness. No more. Now I can hear every cymbal and high frequency note crystal clear. Great smooth midrange and even some bass. Wonderful upgrade.

Cons: Not a speaker con but an installation con...on my car the speaker lead is very short and I lost hold of it when I disconnected from the existing speaker. They fell down into the bowels of the dash. It took an extra 20 minutes, a helper with flashlight, and a long gripper tool to fish it out. Be extra careful on this step. Connect some black tape and a lead to it before disconnecting.

well worth it

2016 Toyota RAV4
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

this is a well-made beefy small speaker. it comes with two capacitors to limit the bass but at least in the dash of a RAV4 I found them unnecessary. I don't feel they are being over driven and their base is far higher than anything else in the car. the fit was perfect in the dashboard but they definitely can be improved by a foam baffle. I took off one star because the directions are terrible that are packed with the speakers but luckily Crutchfield techs were very helpful. Lastly soldering leads to the posts was easy with no collateral damage.

Pros: Sound quality and overall build quality, with very tight base

Cons: Directions

Product Research

Features

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.

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.

High-Output Design: The 3Ω voice coil design compensates for the high in-line resistance of small gauge factory wiring, extracting more power from factory (or aftermarket) receivers. This results in clearer, richer sound for the listener.

Crossover: The included 270 microfarad capacitors are 1st order crossovers (6 dB/octave); the crossover point is approximately 196 Hz. One capacitor is wired in-line with the positive input of each speaker.
