Rockford Fosgate showcases their fanatical commitment to sonic excellence in the Punch Series of speakers, amps, and subs. If you like to listen to potent, powerful music — and feel it too — Punch components will give you impressive sound that'll stand out in a crowd.
Rockford Fosgate designed the Punch P1683 6"x8" 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. 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 dome tweeter and supertweeter provide clear, extended highs that can hold their own when the bass gets heavy.
Grilles not included — factory grilles are suitable for most installations.

Music sounds crystal clear 10/10 quality
Great sound quality and fit perfectly in factory location
GOOD SPEAKER. I HAD TO BUY NEW SRCEWS TO PUT IN TO HOLD SPEAKER INPLASE OTHER THAN THAT INSTALLATION WENT GREAT.
Cons: NEW SCREWS MAY BE NEEDED TO INSTALL ON FACTORY GRILLS
I installed these in my 2007 Expedition. The sound difference is incredible!! They fit in front and and back doors with no fitment issues what so ever. Even used factory retaining screws and holes. Only issue i had was my truck had the factory tweeters in the front doors so I just had to splice them in with the harness which was no issue there. I am running them on a double din Pioneer dvd head unit. Will also replace the factory sub and amp in the near future. Always like Fosgate products!!! Would recommend these to anyone!!
Pros: Rockford Fosgate need i say more...
Cons: I didn't buy them sooner...
Easy to install! instructions were clean and clear. Sound is much better than the stock speakers that were in my truck! Cant wait to get the sound where i want it.
Pros: -great sound quality -easy to install - FAST delivery
Cons: -wiring harness was the wrong size but a quick fix with the included adapters.
Great product. Definite upgrade from stock speakers.
Great sound and easy to install
I'll be blunt...they sound great when its warm out but since the temps have dropped below freezing here (Chicago) they sound really tinny... No bass, all treble and very little of anything else. I have had to take bass and treble levels down to almost half of where they are at normally...They stock Ford speakers never did that...I'd pass on these speakers if you live in an area that gets temps below freezing for a better part of the season...
Pros: OEM fit , 3 way range of sound and makes my factory radio shine....
Cons: Not great below 30 degrees....
Awesome perfect sound for rock and roll. Really clear highs and mids. They hit some bass lows better than others. Tough to describe that one. I added a head unit and four of these speakers and I now feel like I need a small sub.
They sound goood.
Pros: Easy install
Cons: Not much bass
Just installed love them
Pros: Fit perfect and priced right
Speakers fit perfect
These speakers sound great! Awesome upgrade from the stock units. Now I need another pair for the back.
Pros: Great sound. Easy install.
Love my new speakers! Sounds great. The instructions to instal were not particularly fantastic for me, a girl who has never done anything like this before. I ended up googling a YouTube video that was extremely helpful in taking part both my front and back doors on my 2014 F150. The Crutchfield support was great. I asked them questions about what I needed for my preferences.
Pros: Great speakers, great customer service
Cons: Not so great instillation instructions for beginners.
I love the clarity, sound, and the power it receives with the radio. Great quality, top name brand, and awesome experience.
Easy install, sounds good with factory head unit but needs an amp for full potential.
I would definitely recommend these speakers. They sound really good and deliver a full range of high, mid, low very accurately. Lots of head room when turned up.. they'll go louder than what I'm comfortable listening to, but I had to crank up the volume just to be sure they'd handle it. Enough low end to rattle the door. I've got two pair in my Escape, front and back, and I'll be buying these whenever I do another install. All the connectors etc that Crutchfield includes fit perfectly, this was the easiest installation of a car stereo I've done.
Pros: Amazing range of sound, unbelievable price for the quality. Very well made.
I bought the Rockford Fosgate Punch P1683 for the front doors and the Rockford Fosgate Prime 168x2 for the back doors .
Pros: The sound is BEAUIFUL , now I can crank my volume pass 25 ,with the factory speakers the bass would start distortion like they bout to bust
Cons: I had to use wire clippers to cut the P1683 so they can fit but it was easy n I had to use the Accessories wires that were FREE cause the harness they sent would not fit the P1682 but it was know problem just a little work to do,but I'm happy .
Always put up with stock, never took the leap and switched out. Crutchfield Tech Support was incredibly helpful with selection and installation. I can't even remember what it used to sound like. These guys have a great kick to them, watching the rear view mirror vibrate while listening to your favorite album is something that I'm glad to have experienced now.
This speakers are great. They had more clarity and bass to your music.
Pros: They look and sound great.
Cons: The female ends that they sent me with them, one of them didn't fit properly.
clean sound easy install
Great sounding speakers with a great price!
Pros: Great sound quality with a great price!
Cons: None so far!
They shipped timely, they fit as expected. They sound really great.
Very clean sound, I like them.
Pros: fit perfectly, clean sound
Good SOUND easy installation
MADE A HUGE DIFFERENCE OVER THE OEM SPEAKERS
Pros: EASY TO INSTALL
The speakers went in just like I thought but those wire harness(s) I had problems with... I had to cut of the ends that were attached to them and use ones that I have had in my tool box for years...dad always says " save that...you might need it someday" and I did....none of those +'s and -"s fit the prongs on the speakers. They could have been a bit longer to....
Pros: Love the new sound from my old radio with the new Rockford Fosgate Punch P 1638, I used all the factory screws to secure the speaker to the factory cut outs.
Cons: The problem with those wire harness was the only set back...
Got these to replace the rear door factory 6x8s in my 2006 Ford Escape Hybrid. I put a set of Pioneer TS-A6885r 6x8's in the front doors. They're both surprisingly clear at high volumes. These speakers allow me to hear a lot more of the nuanced details in my music and the bass response is more than adequate for 90s rock/metal and gangsta rap. I am a dad as well so I also play children's music at low volumes while my toddler claps to wheels on the bus and these have excellent response for that application as well though I get more enjoyment blasting The Black Keys, NIN or Wu-Tang Clan then I do playing Sing-Along-with-Elmo at moderate volumes but they work just as well in either application.
Pros: Clarity and punch in the midrange and highs and satisfying bass response for my tastes. I don't need to make the next car over shake because I'm almost 40.
Cons: The speaker wire connector tabs on these speakers are too big for the Metra Ford adapters I received from Crutchfield which seem to fit most other speakers just fine. To correct this, I took a trip to auto parts store and purchased some slide connectors that fit and they were easy to crimp on.
I replaced the stock non-Bose door speakers in my 2006 Mazda Miata Sport. They were an identical fit. I replaced one and broke some nylon push pins in the door panel, so a I drove around for a day with one stock speaker and one Rockford Fosgate Punch P1683 speaker. I drove around all day comparing one side to the other and had difficulty detecting the differences in the speakers. After getting some replacement push pins for door panels, installed the other Rockford Fosgate Punch P1683. I could definitely tell the difference and my wife, the ultimate critic noticed the improvement as well. I was very pleased at that point.
Pros: Exact fit. The Rockford Fosgate Punch P1683 6x8 speakers fit the same mounting holes as the non-Bose stock door speakers in my 06 Miata Sport. No drilling new holes.
Cons: The interface plug and wires that came free with the speakers were not an exact fit to the wiring tabs on the Rockford Fosgate Punch P1683 speakers. I had to use some miniature flat head screw drivers to widen the connectors on the interface plug so they would fit the speaker tabs.
These speakers would not fit in the front door of my 2005 Ford F-150 without modification. I returned them for a different brand that would fit.
Pros: Good quality speaker.
Cons: Would not fit in the opening of 2005 Ford F-150
Bought these on sale, fit perfectly into my 00 Ford Focus.
Pros: -Quick and easy install -Price
Direct replacement of factory speakers. Simple install. Great sound.
Pros: Ease of install. Sound.
I installed my Rockford Fosgate Punch speakers in my truck 2 weeks ago and was amazed at the quality of the sound compared to the price that I paid for them.
Pros: Rich, filtered sound. Nice highs and lows.
LOVE them so far... once the sub gets broke in, I can start turning the volume up a lil bit higher.... until then, I have to keep it at 31... but I'm sure once the breakin periods over- they will shake cars next to me...
Pros: sound clarity is superb! from the highs, to the mids, to even lows.... excellent quality speaker-
This speaker is amazing. Great sound and one fantastic upgrade over the factory speakers
Pros: Perfect fit
I purchased an after market stereo but left the original speakers in the car. I let my daughter barrow the car; after she returned the car, I drove it and I heard the front right door speaker ratteling. The replacement speakers are wonderful. They installed easily and they introduced me to my new sound system.
Worth the affordable price. I bought 2 sets and did back and front of Super Cab F-150. Got rid of the dead/muffled midrange in the stock speakers. These are more clear and crip. No base. I was not looking for base anyway, at 55, I use the treble more. Nice speakers. Install kit was very good and free, but you have t have some skill set and whil the instructions will show you how to get the door panels off, it won't help you with all the details.3-4 hours to right side and 1.5 hours to do the drivers side the next day. Pleant of tools and space, in the garage, I would do it all over if I had to,.
Pros: Fit, Instructions, free harness, nice speaker, Great highs and good mid range.
Cons: Bag of blue clips to fit the speakers, have to choose from many sizes to get right fit. Hex head bolts supplied would not work with the speakers, used stock screws.
Great speakers for the money. Could use a little more bass reflex.
For the money they aren't to bad of a speaker, but some of the reviews make them sound much better than what they really are
Pros: Highs are clear, great price
Cons: Lows are virtually nonexistent
Great sounding replacement for tired original equipment speakers. Well worth the money even with the factory head unit driving them.
Pros: Good fit for my Mazda Tribute front and back. Not audiophile quality but not audiophile price.
Cons: Great upgrade for a tired factory sound system.
1st time Rockford Fosgate speaker buyer. Don't know why I waited so long. They fill up our Miatia perfectly. I'mpushing them with a single din Clarion. Sounds great!
Pros: Easy of installation. Exact fit. No modifications needed. Audio quality.
Cons: Can't think of one.
Good Speakers. Crisp and clear and good bass.
Pros: Clear good bass
Great speakers! I have a 2013 Ford Mustang and they fit perfectly ! Only small problem i had was the harness wires did not fit perfectly. The negative on the wire harness was too small to fit over the negative on the speaker. So easily fixable, i bought new connectors at the auto parts store, stripped the wire and clamped the wire onto the new connectors. Works perfect!
Pros: Great sound, easy install, affordability for the quality
Cons: Negative wire needs to be fixed
Good sound for cheaper priced speakers
These speakers fit the factory opening and screw holes perfectly on my 2010 Ranger XL Regular Cab. The sound is a vast improvement over the Mexican OEM Ford speakers, especially in the highs and lower bass. Total bass is not that impressive, but could be the 6x8 cone design compromising that region of frequencies. Very satisfied, and Crutchfield had them on sale! Only thing I would add to the very complete instructions is leaving door lock pull up on re-install to assist in realigning same.
Pros: High-end speaker for a relatively modest price. Quality construction and materials. Installation instructions for the Ranger were spot on.
I installed these on my 2012 F150. No major issues with the installation. The quality of the sound is just slightly better than the stock speakers that came with the car. I am not convinced that it was worth the money and effort to do the upgrade.
Pros: Cheap, easy to install
Cons: Average sound.
Not much bass. Good overall sound. Great for the money!
Pros: Cost, quality, and ease of installation.
Sounds great. Still need a sub.
Pros: Clear crisp mid and high
Cons: Still need a sub
I have a 1995 ford escort LX wagon, and these were sold to me with a "caution" that there was a bit of customizing for my car. They did in fact fit and work great, but you really have to use your brain, a couple of spare nuts laying around shop to give adequate space for speaker to not touch grill, and a saw to cut plastic off of grill and cut one of the grill brackets out of the way. I think they did a good job of pointing you in the right direction in their "caution" alert, and common sense has to take you the rest of the way. If you are mechanically inclined enough to put in a audio system, you should be smart enough to figure this instillation out.
Pros: great sound
Cons: Needs a little common sense ingenuity to modify mounting, in 1995 Escort LX wagon.
I wanted to replace my factory Ford speakers in the front and back and decided to go with the Rockford Fosgate Punch P1683. I am very glad that I did. The sound quality is very good, even with just my factory stereo amp providing power. I highly recommend these speakers for those who are looking for clean, clear, affordable sound in their vehicle.
Pros: Relatively inexpensive Easy to install Great sound quality
Rockford Fosgate Punch P1683 crank out awesome sound...but unless you are mounting them in a door, they have tabs that must be cut off or the door altered to fit
Pros: awesome sound
Cons: Install in a door oval for 2004 F150 required alterations to door and speaker to fit...
Great sound, perfect fit, free connectors from Crutchfield made installation clean.
Pros: Good Sound quality for the money
Cons: Not as much bass as hoped
These speakers were a steal at buy one set get one set 50%off. They have fairly decent bass and sound marvelous. They were a strait replacement and needed no alterations. Extremely pleased.
Pros: Great sound, value, clarity.
Cons: Haven't found any.
I bought these speakers for my 2014 f150. I got them in 2 days from crutch field. They really do pack a punch, I installed all 4 the day I got them with a little help from YouTube. Came with all the hardware I needed to complete the mission of having good sound in my truck. Definitely would recommend to all my friends
Pros: Free hardware Easy installation
amazing what an upgrade will do. The sound is so much better. Replaced speakers in 2013 Ford Edge.
2013 Ford Edge SEL These speakers are much better than the stock speakers. Hooked mine up to the factory Head Unit. Highs and Mids are much clearer and there is a small improvement on the Lows. On the installation side: 1.) Removing the door panels WILL result in broken panel clips. Specifically the white ones. Recommend that you get 8-10 new ones of these as a precaution. 2.) Shorten up the harness adapters to 1.5" of wire. All the rest is not needed. 3.) The metra terminals that are given to you free are pretty cheesy. They bend very easily so be careful and make sure that you are pushing them on straight - any deviation from straight will result in a bent terminal. 4.) There are (2) plastic tabs that need to be cut off flush on each door. A pair of flat back side cutters does the job just fine. 5.) The (4) bolts that hold the factory speakers can be reused without issue. Do not use the hardware that comes with the speakers.
Pros: Much better sound
Cons: Nothing with the speakers
2007 Mustang GT Premium coupe I bought these based off of the reviews. I put them in because I thought the factory speakers were blown. Turns out they were not blown but a setting in the factory stereo was putting more power to the rear speakers rather then all speakers giving a really bad distortion to the speakers. After I replaced the speakers Is when I figured this out because these speakers did the same thing only worse. That is when I found it in the settings so check this setting first hit your menu button and look for it to say rear speakers switch it to all speakers or drivers side. This takes the power being pushed to the rear and spreads it more evenly to the other speakers. That being said I decided to keep the RF speakers in place. I personally like the sound from them over the factory speakers. Also of note is these same speakers will work in a 2007 Mustang GT coupe front door as well you will have to modify the plastic that the speaker is mounted in as they have upraised plastic tabs to keep the factory speakers aligned. Cut all four tabs off and they fit in place no problems what so ever. Also if mounting in the front door make sure you buy 2 sets of the rears so that you get the speaker adapter and the wire clips as the polarity is reversed in the front speakers as well with the wire harnes they give you.
Excellent upgrade over stock. Replaced all 4 door speakers in a 2004 Ford Escape, and the difference was amazing. Huge improvement! Highs and Lows sound so much better, I don't even need to replace the factory HU.
Pros: Sound, Clarity, Volume - Ease of install. Highly Recommended and sound great with the factory 6 disk changer
Cons: Nothing to do with the speakers, but the Metra wiring harness and terminals were on the cheap side - One of the wiring harness' terminal kept pushing out when plugging it into the wiring, and the spades were very cheaply made and bend easily. Really can't complain as they were 'free'.
A very good product well built an strong. Worked perfect in my factory cut outs. And all holes lined up correctly. I'm very happy with the sound put in front an rear or truck doors. Currently on factory radio will be adding an amp soon, an I'm really looking for them to come alive.
Pros: Great price. Good sound. Easy install took about 15 minutes a door.
Great speaker. Put four 6x8's in my 09 F150 SuperCrew. Greatly improved mids and high's. Had to tweek the settings on my head unit to bring out lows. But they are there.
Pros: Easy Install
Great quality and love the sound. They were super easy to install and sound amazing.
Pros: Clear crisp sound quality.
Cons: Not much bass as I hoped.
Bought these for my sons '06 F150 with a Pioneer head unit "aimed" towards IPhone IOS. Sounds great for sure especially with stock speakers in the rear. I just bought some Polk speakers for the rear(on sale), 2ea 10" subs and a sub amp. I will review them after we get them in and broke in.
Pros: Sound, on sale, Crutchfield service and freebes
These are very high quality speakers. However, these speakers only come with two slide posts, not four, which is customary? In addition, the slide posts are larger than standard, and require a larger push on connector? Finally, these speakers did NOT fit in the front doors of my '07 F150, without modification. I had to cut off some extra mounting tab, with a hacksaw, as it was made of plastic and the metal speaker shell. I wish I had known this, ahead of time.
Pros: High quality speaker, for a reasonable price.
Cons: Did not fit in my 2007 F150 (front door) without serious modification with a hacksaw.
These speakers make the stock stereo sound great... I am looking forward to getting a new receiver and seeing how great it sounds then!
Pros: Great sound. They fit exactly as my stock speakers had.
Good three way speakers for beginners
Pros: Pretty good quality sound
Cons: Not a whole lot of bass
Great sound quality
Good bang for your buck. Not the best speakers on the market, but at their price well worth the money. I have used these as an effective replacement for stock speakers in a few vehicles.
Pros: Cost, Clean sound, good buy.
Quite a nice upgrade for factory speakers. Very easy to install, due to Crutchfield's install directions with visuals and free adapters and connectors! Thanks Crutchfield!
Pros: Easy to install, great instructions with pictures.
Got these speakers at a great deal & I must say my review is pretty similar to most. This was a solid buy for the wife's car great highs no distortion, mids a good, bass is not the strong point but an improvement over stock none the less. These will sound great in my truck though with my sub.
Pros: Great update for the price & solid sound for my wife's 2012 Ford Escape
I have a F150 Crew..did not want to use space under rear bench for sub woofers, so I knew I needed 3ways. Previously installed Pioneers, and Alpines. Went thru both because of slamming doors too hard. I now have Rockfords...the sound and bass punch is 100% noticeable difference. Of course I shouldn't be slamming the doors so hard. I like these Rockford Fosgates so much...I will soon swap out my 3-ways in the rear doors, and replace the Alpines. The 6 by 8 Rockfords did not fit in the doors right out of box. I called...talked to service..and was informed I needed to use a cutting tool to trim speaker frame edge.....then fit perfectly!
Pros: Quality sound. Best price. Fast shipping. Excellent customer and technical service. This is not my first experience with Crutchfield...nor will it be my last.
Cons: Uhh...hmm....well...uh...dang, can't think of any Cons.
Speakers sound great, wish there was a little more bass. Would have been 5 stars, but the fit in my front door panels was tighter than I liked. I really had to squeeze them in there.
Pros: Good highs and mids, decent lows. Much crisper than factory
Cons: Not a perfect fit for my truck.
Bought these to replace a blown OEM speaker in my wife's 2010 Mercury Mariner. They were a perfect fit and are noticeable improvement over the stock speakers. There is ample bass, especially in conjunction with the Mariner's stock sub-woofer. The wiring harness and wire clamps that Crutchfield supplied made installation easy. I also used a Dynamat speaker kit, but it's not required.
Pros: Perfect replacement fit. Improved sound quality. Crutchfield ordering process provides everything you'll need.
Cons: They do not come with speaker grills, so if you can't use the stock grills you'll have to find suitable replacements.
Great sound easy to install
These speakers were a great upgrade from stock in my f150. Miss and highs are crisp and bass is just enough, but if you are looking for some extra thump these would pair very well with a subwoofer. Excellent product and I would recommend to anyone!
Alittle tinny, dosen't give the bass response I thought it would. But overall a descent value.
Cons: Alittle tinny, dosen't give the bass response I thought it would.
I purchased a new high end Alpine Head Unit for my 2004 ford ranger XLT. I decided to replace the front door speakers with these rather than the fosgate prime 2-way. They have a nice crisp and clean sound to them but I would have to say the stock paper cone speakers had more bass. Fortunately I'm not looking for bass but clarity since I'm not into listening to music with 4 12' subs in the back. Overall, good buy.
Pros: Clean and great highs
Cons: Not much midrange bass
Very good sound quality compared to the factory speakers.
Pros: Very good price for the quality of product you get.
I have a 2012 Mustang GT base model, so the stereo is terrible. I read these reviews and bought 2 speakers for the front. Huge difference! clean clear sound, doesn't add bass but now sounds better than premium stereo. I thought about ordering 2 more for the rear but I was like why bother it sounds great with just the front 2. Thanks for all the other reviews to help my decision, hope this helps for yours
I am very pleased with the sound. I found a video on you tube about removing the door panels to install and that helped me a great deal on the installation. My only complaint about the install is that the quick connect that was supplied for easy installation did not fit the terminal on the speaker itself. I had to cut off the smaller of the two spade connectors and add a larger one to make it work. A bag of larger spade connectors was provided so I assume that they know this a problem already. I don't understand why you would provide a connector that doesn't fit your own speaker. I also installed a SoundgateT SubStageT SF150C09 by Kicker at the same time and I am very pleased with my new sound.
Pros: Great sound upgrade from my factory speakers.
Cons: Spade connector on quick connect adapter does not fit on speaker.
Awesome speakers, sounds way better now. Bass is way up, mid bass is up and the tweeters sound really good. I would buy these again.
Pros: Fit, finish, ease of install. Slipped in like a glove.
Cons: Price, a little high.
speakers rock. sound a tousand times better than the wore out fact speakers.
Pros: fit in factory openings perfect,easy install,they jam.
I am pleased with the sound quality of Rockford Fosgate Punch speakers. I replaced the factory speakers in a 2001 Mazda Miata and was surprised to be able to notice a big improvement in such a small cabin. I highly recommend these speakers to friends and family.
Pros: Looks good, sounds great! Easy install, fit just right.
Cons: The wiring harness didn't match the harness in the Miata. The lock tabs don't line up. It'll hold, but may slip out in time. My choice was to either splice it in or use zip ties to hold the harnesses together. In the interest of time, I chose to zip them together.
Pretty easy install. Put a set in front and rear doors. Had to trim a corner off both front speakers to get to fit. Great sound.
Pros: Great sound. Came with everything I needed to install.
I changed my factory speaker on my 2002 Mazda Protégé with this one. audio quality are great.
Pros: great sound, no too expensive and fix perfectly on my car
Cons: none yet
Great sound. Easy installation. Can handle whatever kind of music you listen to. Put these in my '10 F150 no amp just straight off the factory head unit. They can't take all the unit can put out volume wise without distorting. Low to mid volume levels sounds great but if your one of those people out to let everyone know what your listening to, you'll want a sub for back up. The tweets take over quite a bit at high volume.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy Install
Cons: Nothing yet
Very easy install on my F150, only minor modification needed, just had to round down 2 tabs on each speaker to fit the front doors. Otherwise everything I needed to install it came with it in my order for free.
Pros: For the price, you cant beat it, and the quality over my old Made in Mexico 25w ones that came stock, is 10 fold better!
Cons: Cant think of any.
I installed a set of these in my 2014 Mustang with the base, 4-speaker sound system. For the price, you would be very hard pressed to find a better sounding speaker. The highs are crisp and clear and louder than I would ever need them to be. Although some reviewers complain about the low-end sound, I find that they are much better than you would expect to find in this size speaker; 6x8's can only do so much. Additionally, there is a good foam gasket built onto the mounting surface (for top-mount applications) that will negate the use of having to apply additional sealing materials. I wish I knew that before I purchased the weather stripping. The only complaint I have is that they were not pure drop-ins for my car, as stated by Crutchfield. The bracket that is used by Ford has mounting tabs that require modification (removal) on two of the four. Easily done with a sharp knife and a pair of pliers. I used only a one inch strip of weather strip as insurance on one of the two remaining tabs. It was a tight fit and likely not necessary, but like I said, insurance.
Pros: Excellent highs and mids Great mid-bass punch Excellent quality and construction
Cons: Not a clean drop-in for 2011-2014 Mustang but easy enough to accommodate.
Over all great speakers! I ordered two pairs, one for the front, one for the rear of my 2005 F150 SuperCab. The front set went out within the first two days, crutchfield sent a replacement pair no questions asked and now they work perfectly! The sound is much better than factory!
Pros: Better sound quality, easy to install
Cons: Requires trimming to fit my 2005 F150
I recently purchased these knowing that it had good reviews and well, they weren't wrong! These speakers sound clear and it really fills in that bass that my stock speakers on my 02 F-150 just couldn't put out. Makes the seats vibrate when it's on volume level 25.
Pros: Great sound for a great price. Easy install.
GOT ALPINE 50X4 AMP WITH THESE THE SOUND IS GREAT ,CLEAR SOUND . HITS HARD WITH NO DISTORTION REPLACED SYSTEM IN MY 2002 F250 CREW CAB 4X4 7.3 DIESEL ..
Pros: HITS REAL GOOD .. PRICE . NAME BRAND EASY TO INSTALL
These speakers are great! I installed them in on my 2002 mustang convertible in the back seats and they sound like heaven. They hit each not perfectly and have the right amount of bass.
Pros: Pitch perfect Good bass Cheap
very pleased with this product. would order again.
After purchasing a 2013 Ford XLT, (New) I expected more from the premium sound system that came with it. What I got was an over priced desk clock with a radio. I installed 2 pairs of the Rockford Fosgate Punch P1683 and it was an amazing difference in sound quality and volume. I did the installation myself. I recommend installing speaker baffles with the speakers. There are several videos on YouTube that shows how to remove the door panels and it was a snap, took about 1.5 hours to complete.
Pros: Easy to install.
Cons: Provided connectors were cheap and did not fit the speaker connections. Had to make some modifications myself, minor inconvenience.
Great sound wonderful clarity. Good amount of bass for 6x8s
Pros: Great sound quality.
Cons: Didn't fit in 2004 f-150 had to cut a little bit off the mounting holes.
VERY PLEASED WITH THESE SPEAKERS. EASILY INSTALLED / GREAT PRICE & THEY SOUND GREAT IN MY 94 T-BIRD.
Pros: GREAT IMPROVEMENT FROM THE ORIGINAL SPEAKERS
Great speakers, great price from Crutchfield as usual. Good highs and mids, but if you want solid bass then the Kicker 6x9 are more responsive in the low end.
Pros: Much better than stock, sound great
Cons: need to add a sub with these to get great bass.
Great replacement for my daughter's 2005 Mazda Tribute. Texas heat had taken the life out of the OEM's.
Good all around sound for the price
Replaced factory radio, with a Sony-MEX-BT3100P-CD-Receiver-w-App-Remote-Bluetooth, Sound Ordinance amp and Pioneer 2-way speakers, just not enough base for me, so I upgraded to the Punch 3-way speakers, What a difference! You will not be disappointed spending a little more money
Pros: Excellent value, sound is very good.
Cons: Had to use my hand grinder to round off 2 corners of mounting ears to fit front door speakers, no big deal. Did not have to do this with the rear speakers
Pretty awesome sound. I was quite impressed with these speakers. Buy 1 get 1 1/2 off made it better
Pros: Price deal Sound
Cons: Small connections
No complaints at all. These speakers combined with an aftermarket radio makes a huge difference in the sound quality. Plus I got buy one, get one half off--which is not too shabby. Next step are subs when I have the disposable income. Nice bass with very little distortion even at very loud volume!
I have a 2001 Expedition and these made a huge difference in sound. I already have an upgraded Kenwood head unit so these brought out it's true potential. I would recommend these to anyone looking to upgrade the factory speakers and you will definately notice a big difference.
Pros: Sound Quality, Affordability
For a '98 XL F150 single cab Flareside, doors and rear. Great speakers, it's been a few years since i've played with stereo toys so i spent a little more then what I wanted to but got a great "special" on the four speakers. Be careful when trimming the wires to splice the new connectors onto the wires (that was one of the options) as the drivers side seemed to be the shortest pull with the speaker connections on the opposite side of where the wires come in the door. Just flip the speaker "upside down" to gain a few inch's. (Looking at the speaker front, the connectors are on the left.) Too short and it can pull out or weaken the connectors, and too long and it could get tangled up in the window mechanism.
Pros: I didn't need the old outer speaker "protectors" from the factory speakers, they fit the new ones okay, but it looked like it might muffle the sound. I probably will put them on the next time I take the door panels off, just for sound of mind. The speakers do have the "plastic" look for the membrane but does seem pretty tough.
Cons: Nothing I can think of, other then getting a small sub woofer to accent the sound. Stock radio's fault not the speakers.
Great speakers and even a better deal! Thanks for the excellent instructions as install was a piece of cake!
Pros: Excellent sound even good bass without a subwoofer
A lot better than OEM clean sound not distorted when turned up
Outstanding pair of speakers for the price. Sounds a lot better than my stock speakers.
Pros: Great sound quality for the mid and highs bass is decent
Cons: Tight fit front and rear on my 04 f150 but I got them in.
i installed these in a 2006 ford escape,the wifes vehicle. they replaced the factory speakers. the sound difference is incredible and thats with the factory radio still in the car.
Pros: great price , all needed istallation hardware was included, very easy install
Cons: the tabs on the speakers are not sized correctly for the suppied wiring harness but they also supply new ends to put onto the speaker harness . not really a con,just an exrta step for the install
Awesome speakers...the midrange and tweeters are crystal clear and sound fantastic. Was a great deal for the two pair that I bought for my Ford F150 Super Crew. Replaced both sets with these and the speakers were a perfect fit into the existing slots with no issues.
Pros: Ease of installation, midrange and tweeter sounds crystal cleear
Cons: Wish the bass had a little more "thump" but completely satisfied for the bang for the buck...
As I stated in the other review; I purchased matching Fosgate speakers to keep the system all Fosgate (5x7 & 6x8). I read some reviews and was nervous, but got them any way. I could not be happier with the sound quality. These were installed with the baffels. I could not be happier with the purchase and would get them again without hesatation
Pros: Great looks Great sound
I bought these and the rockford 5x7s for my 2000 ford explorer, made a huge difernce in sound over the factory speakers. took about an hour todo all four doors. Had to drill 4 holes to make the 5x7s fit on the rear doors other that instalation was a breeze
Pros: Great value, great sound sound quality
I already have plenty of Rockford Fosgate bass, so all I needed was to replace my door speakers to improve clarity and highs, these definitely did the trick for me. Once again, thank you Crutchfield and Rockford Fosgate.
Pros: Clarity, fit, solid highs
product arrived quickly, was fairly easy to install, [1 extra call to tech support was all I needed], I am running these with the stock head unit. love the sound, I get pretty good bass considering no amp. the mids and highs sound really good, I hear a lot more of the music. for what I paid, this is great bang for the buck. I would definitely do this again.
Pros: much better sound
Cons: none so far
I installed these in my 2010 F150. They made a dramatic difference in sound quality. Installation was quick and easy. All appropriate connectors were included. Price was great, especially with the buy 1 pair, get the 2nd pair 50% off.
Pros: Quick, easy install. Makes the stock head unit sound much better.
These are great quality and sound is improved. For a full range speaker the all around sound is excellent. I used to be a guy who had the big high end sound system and these work just as well. Yes you don't get that deep bass but it's just enough that you don't lose out on a well rounded sound. If you are looking for a quality sound at an inexpensive price then look no further than these. I have a 2005 Ford F150 Super Cab with a Kenwood KDC-BT948HD stereo and they fit in the rear doors with no problems but for the front door location it requied a little bit of modification. I had to cut one of the mounting tabs off for them to fit. If it wasn't designed to fit multiple sized openings then no cutting would be required. As for the install manuel it's fantastic. I installed all 4 speakers and the modifications to 2 spekaers in less than 1 hour. Plus why buy from anywhere else, they give you everything you need : adapters so you don't have to cut and splice anything, manuels,and expert advice.
Pros: overall sound quality, price, install manuel, wiring harness.
I bought these speakers to replace the factory Ford speakers on my new 2012 F-150, as most of you know the Ford factory speakers have a somewhat muffled unclear sound, I had these Rockford Punch speakers put in for me by a local car audio shop and I am quite satisfied with the transformation, they are clear, great high end, decent bass, but I agree with the other review, if you buy these you'll want a sub for the bass, to compliment the great clarity of the highs
Pros: Good price the second pair was half off, Crutchfield's great instructions,
I bought these on Thursday and got them on Monday. I bought them to replace the factory speakers in my 2012 Ford F150 XLT. I installed all 4 in about an hour. The directions provided were very good. I had to cut off both female connectors on the speaker adapters Crutchfield provided but they already knew this and provided the correct female connectors. They drop in both the front and rear doors and sound much better then the factory paper junk. A side by side comparison of the factory to these is a joke. I think they will sound even better with a powered sub to fill in the shallow low end.
Pros: Drop in replacement for factory. Much more robust. Sound better then stock junk.
Cons: None so far.
Bought this to use in conjunction with Clarion cx501 head unit. they are good speakers, not great speakers though. Certainly an upgrade from stocks. Overall sound is good the mids and highs are the highlights. The low end bass will make you wish you had a sub. I wish I had spent the extra money and shot a little higher up the food chain. In the end I am relatively pleased with the purchase. certainly pleased enough to not be thinking about swapping them out!
Pros: high and mids
Replaced stock speakers in 04 Ford Explorer. Paired with JVC KW-HDR81BT. These things rock! They almost ask to be turned up louder. Will pair with an amp in the future but they sound great with a upgraded deck.
I have a 2002 Mazda Protege. I installed the Rockford Fosgate Punch P1683 speakers in my front doors to replace my factory speakers. Crutchfield gave me instructions on how to remove the door panels which made things much easier. Although I really don't like 5x7 speakers, I wasn't willing to modify my doors to accommodate 6x9's. These speakers exceeded my expectations. They have outperformed all of the 5x7's I've had so far. They have great Highs, Mids, and Lows for a speaker this size. I have pair these with a JVC KWR900BT receiver and JBL GT6-69 speakers in the rear deck and together they sound great. However, i do have to fade the sound to front a little or the 6x9's overpower the 5x7's.
Pros: Great Price. Great sound for the size.
I chose these speakers based on a good past experience with Rockford-Fosgate Punch series and they have good sensitivity which is important when using with the factory radio. These speakers sound decent and fit in the front door of a 2012 Ford Mustang. Fairly easy install and a HUGE improvement in sound quality over the junk factory speakers on the Shaker500 system. Still sound a little harsh, but it could be due to the factory Shaker500 head unit. Still, now I can at least listen to the sound system.
Pros: Easy install, decent sound quality.
Cons: Sound a little bit harsh with the factory sound system.
Huge improvement over my factory speakers. I drive a 2012 Mustang that had some very lackluster speakers provided by Ford. I decided to switch them out for the Fosgate speakers, and they sound way better. I can drive them much harder without the distortion from the factory speakers, and their sound is very crisp and clear compared to the Ford's more "muddled" factory set-up. I had two Fosgate 10" subs from an old system that I installed in the trunk to get some bass. The component speakers sound fantastic, but they will not give you big bass (even though it's better than the factory speakers).
Pros: Great sound, and reasonably priced. They can be driven very hard without distorting. Crutchfield's (free) installation guide was a HUGE help. Just follow the instructions and you'll get them switched out in no time.
Cons: I had to slightly modify the housing of the speakers because the Fosgates were shaped just a bit different than the factory speakers. Nothing major, but annoying nonetheless. This is likely only a problem on a few vehicles (just guessing).
I'me impressed with the sound frome these, There hooked up to a 200 watt amp (50x4) and they sound great.
Pros: Good sound for the money.
Cons: none I can think of
I bought these speakers for my '06 Ford Expedition. Crutshfield originally recommended the P1S652, but those required some major cutting of the trim around the speaker. I just installed the P1683's and they sound great! I did have to do some minor trimming of the speaker's frame as the Expedition has a recess that the speaker sits in. No big deal. The highs are incredible. Very crisp and clean. The low frequencies are OK but bot great; however, that's why subwoofers were created.
Pros: Heavy speaker, solid frame, well designed, crisp clean highs. The Ford factory speakers are lightweight, muddy-sounding low performers and these were, overall, a terrific repalcement
Cons: Minor trimming of the speaker's frame is required to fit the Expedition. A hacksaw worked just fine. Not much "Punch" in the low end.
Purchased these as support speakers to P1572's. They performed great in grand daughters '08 mustang as rear units. Adjustments in Sony HU made them sound great without power amp or sub (which will probably be added later). Installation of rear speakers in '08 Mustang was a nightmare in spite of Crutchfield instructions AND "You Tube" videos I found.
Pros: So impressed I purchased two more pair for my wife's '09 F-150. The enhancement of the Sony system was unbelievable.
Cons: Depending on your taste and system you may want a sub to accent these.
They are speakers. I didn't really see much difference from the factory speakers.
Great quality. Cant wait to add the subs and amp

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 two tweeters, 1/2" and 3/4" domes. The material used is PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide); PEI is a polymer film that produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging.
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) be purchased and spliced to the harnesses to adapt them to the speaker terminals.

I installed 4 Rockford Fosgate Punch P1683 speakers in all 4 doors on my 2006 ford Escape. It was a big improvement over the OEM speakers. Then i installed a Kenwood Head Unit and it really brought out the sound in the new speakers. [ RICKY Aug 31, 2016 ]
I didn't need to get an app for my 2008 f150 limited due to having the navigation system that has an internal amp and the truck has the factory sub box under the crew cab seat. The speakers sound great, though. [ Jeff Aug 31, 2016 ]
Absolutely. I have these in the front doors of my ranger and some Kenwood 3 ways in the back with a 40 watt per channel 4 channel amp and those speakers absolutely came alive. The normal head unit wattage isn't enough to get the good quality sound, You start creeping into the distorted range. Hope this helps....Larry [ Lawrence Aug 31, 2016 ]
Thanks for your question. This set does not come with any grilles as most applications they fit behind a vehicles factory speaker grilles. Hope that helps. [ Kenny Jun 03, 2016 ] Staff
I would say they are. Direct fitment for 2001 Ford Mustang. No modifications needed. [ Sarge3 Mar 25, 2016 ]
It depends on what your looking for more bass or just richer sound factory speakers won't do much. If you want more bass then look at a powered sub . [ BRANDON L Dec 27, 2015 ]
The crossover on component speakers & 2 way or 3 way speakers is built into the speaker. Yes it is only highs going to your tweeters. The crossover in your stereo will separate your sub output from your other speakers. [ barton Dec 27, 2015 ]
IF your unit can be adjusted to direct all frequency to all the speakers then you should be good. I would say look up the manual on how to basically do what a crossover does in subwoofers. The frequency can be forced out of specific iutputs. Or have a unity distribution, then the speakers handle what they were designed for. These are great speakers. Start with the manual of your head unit. My thoughts... Vinman [ Vincent Dec 27, 2015 ]
I would think your assumption is correct, since my factory tweeters still produce sound with the addition of these speakers. I cannot say for sure if the tweeters in the Rockford speakers produce any sound, but they are a big improvement over the factory Sony speakers that came out. [ steven Dec 26, 2015 ]
I also listen to all types of music and am very satisfied with these speakers. [ ruben Dec 17, 2015 ]
These are good all around speakers. Although they don't produce a lot of bass [ scott Dec 14, 2015 ]
I Don't recall what size they are, but if you pick up a set of the smallest and next size-up co n newton's at your local autoparts store, you should have it covered. [ Shane Nov 24, 2015 ]
One of the female connectors is the standard size. The 2nd female connector is smaller, but not the very small size, so I'd call that one medium in size. Hope this helps. [ DAVID Nov 24, 2015 ]
Hey Jerry P, I don't know if this statement is going to help.the speakers are great but I put them in a Ford Explorer,if you get them working working you'll feel them in your chest.good luck [ Alfred Sep 15, 2015 ]
I mounted them in my 2014 Mustang (base). There is no problem with the depth in mine. There was a small modification needed to get them to fit in the factory bracket, though. I had to remove part of the lip that the speakers mounted to. Hard to describe but when you go to put them in you'll understand... I first scored the plastic with a sharp knife and then snapped the lip off (part of one; there's 2) then used high density weather stripping on the mounting surface of the speaker; a pro would have used sound deadening mat, but this was way cheaper. If the budget allows, might I recommend Alpine Type-R. I am moving my punches to the rear deck and installing type Rs in the door next week. [ DANIEL Sep 09, 2015 ]
Thank you very much for your information! [ Dan A. May 12, 2014 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The P1683 speaker's crossover is built in and splits the frequencies between the woofer, tweeter, and super tweeter in the speaker. There is no adjustment necessary on the speaker. Within the radio you have high and low pass filter settings. The high pass filter will allow you to filter bass out of the speakers; this is commonly done if you are also running subwoofers or smaller speakers that don't produce bass very well. The 6x8 speakers you have can handle a full range signal and I would just set that to "Through" The low-pass filter will allow you set the bass cut off for subwoofers. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy May 06, 2014 ] Staff
These speakers will work fine with your receiver. However, to get the best performance from them, you will want to add an amplifier. If you are interested in looking at an amp, then I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system. [ Jeff Feb 10, 2014 ] Staff
