Rockford Fosgate Punch P165
6-1/2" 2-way car speakers
Our take on the Rockford Fosgate Punch P165 by Crutchfield's John Pollard
High-quality replacement speakers
Rockford Fosgate designed the Punch P165 6-1/2" speakers as a high-grade replacement for your factory speakers. Each speaker features a responsive polypropylene cone and butyl rubber surround that'll stand up to hours of high-volume jams. The dome tweeter provides clear, extended highs that can hold their own when the bass gets heavy.
Rockford Fosgate innovations
Take a closer look and you'll notice a couple of cool innovations. Rockford Fosgate uses a new technique to attach the surround to the cone that yields up to 25% more cone area, for fuller sound and stronger performance. The slots around the frame eliminate the need to redrill screw holes when the factory holes are just a little bit off. And these speakers come with adapter plates that you can modify to install these speakers into 5"x7", 6"x8", or 6"x9" openings. Grilles are included.
Replaced the rear door speakers in my 06 Nissan Titan with these, big improvement over factory, needed some slight modification done but all in all went well and they sound great

Injection-Molded Polypropylene Woofers: The woofer cones are mineral filled, injection-molded 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.
Butyl Rubber Surrounds: The butyl 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.
VAST Surround: The Vertical Attach Surround Technique (VAST) increases a speaker's effective radiating cone area without increasing the size of the basket.
Tweeters: Each speaker features a 3/4" PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide) dome tweeter; PEI is a polymer film that produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging.
FlexFit Basket: The Flex Fit frame utilizes slots (where possible) instead of single screw sized holes; allowing slight adjustment of the speaker when mounted.
StampCast Basket: The P165 features StampCast steel baskets for added rigidity.
Adapter Bracket: For mounting flexibility, the included brackets can be modified to fit 5x7, 6x8, or 6x9 applications.
Note: The bracket is generic (cutout sized for a 5-1/4) and requires modification before the P165 will fit into it.
Speaker Terminals: These speakers have 0.25" wide positive (+) terminals and 0.187" wide negative (-) terminals, which are too large for the vehicle-specific speaker harnesses supplied by Crutchfield for many vehicle applications. It is recommended that a pack of assorted female quick slides (item number 120FQS10PK, sold separately) be purchased and spliced to the harnesses to adapt them to the speaker terminals.

You should have no problems with this set up. The only thing you might run into is not getting the full volume you want. It won't be by much I'm sure only by a few dB's. if the speakers were 2 ohm speakers you'd get more a little more volume because there's less resistance. But they will sound just fine with that big of an amp. They're great sounding speakers by the way. I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again. [ MALINDA J May 01, 2015 ]
