Rockford Fosgate Prime R14X2 speaker

The flush-mount tweeter allows this speaker to fit in more locations and provides a more focused image.

Excellent factory replacement

Whether you're building your first system or replacing some burned-out factory speakers, Rockford Fosgate's Prime Series R14X2 4" speakers offer clean, powerful performance that'll keep you and your friends rockin' as you drive. Plus, Prime speakers are a great way to get Rockford Fosgate sound quality without destroying your bank account.

Better components give you better detail

Each 4" speaker sports a stiff polypropylene woofer cone that delivers strong drums and bass, along with clean reproduction of the midrange frequencies. Rockford Fosgate mounts the silk dome tweeter flush with the woofer so it'll fit in more vehicles while adding the excitement of strong high-frequency response. The built-in crossover network divides the frequencies going to each driver, so all your music plays faithfully. Grilles are included.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice little speakers for the price. Although the website says it "Does Not Fit" my car....they are a direct drop in replacement for the rear 4" speakers behind the seats of my BMW Z3 Roadster. My factory speakers were even 4 ohm ...and I was thinking they were going to be 2 ohm.

Pros: Nice quality speaker and grills for such a small price.

Cons: None that I can tell. Don't expect any bass from a 4" speakers though.....that's just common sense.

Nice little speaker!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was in love with my Boston Acoustics 402's that I had installed in the kick-panels of my '76 BMW 2002 years ago. I repaired the cones and went to stupid lengths to keep them alive because of their very 3D imaging. I thought I'd try these sturdy little RF's in another '02 I own. All I can say is WOW...these things make me wonder why I resisted change for so long! The R14x2's work great for supplement another pair of full range rear speakers. Their sound is very good for their size and price...excellent value. Most of all, the imaging is great for bringing sound out from the foot area. As a bonus, the metal grills work well in the kick panels. I'll be ordering 2 more pair for my other '02's. Very, very happy. Of course, Crutchfield is fabulous to work with.

Pros: price, sound, build quality, imaging

Cons: none

Good price and the speakers are of good construction with nice sound. I dont listen to my music with high volume and high bass so not sure how they would handle that type of stress. But for me, these speakers are great.

Pros: Good price, good construction and quality sound.

Cons: the covers that were sent are very, meh. if i were RockfordFosgate I would provide metal mesh covers which are nicer.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Used these to replace some tiny 3" speakers in rear of a Smart Car (451). Pulled side panels, using pattern supplied cut a larger hole for the massive magnets. It's a very shallow space, but mounting the ON top of the panel with the supplied hardware, they fit like a dream! Even with the OEM head unit (car has optional 'Surround Sound upgrade), the sound is flat amazing for a 4" speaker. With the tiny cabin, I can now here the rears! Best hour project and moneyI have spent in a long time.

Pros: For their size, good punch and lower range. Look excellent and work well with the rest of the system.

Cons: None.

Great little speaker.

Great little replacement speaker to for the stock ones. The sound is just about the same as the stock speakers and they mount right up to the stock location. No modifications needed.

Pros: Fits Right to stock location. Good sound

Cons: none so far.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It is holding up, the head unit having the options to set cross over frequencies definitely helped getting the most out of this 4" two way. Its only for mids and high, so I wasn't expecting much bottom from it. I'm satisfied with it and will by more Rockford Fosgate speakers in the future.

Pros: Proper fit, quick connection.

Cons: Non.

These were put in a postal jeep as the others had seen better days. Also put in a JVC stereo with handsfree bluetooth phone capabilities. Both are performing as hoped. The other great thing is the hardware needed for install is provided by Crutchfield, and in my case, without extra cost.

Pros: Great speakers for the money so far.

Cons: None known of yet.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The speakers were direct fit but I did have to modify the mounting tabs a bit as it didn't fit the original screw pattern. The wire adapter made connecting a breeze, you will need to put a wire tie on it as it does not snap lock into the original connector. The sound was great!!

Pros: good sound for the price, wire adapter included no charge.

Cons: a little work to install

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very good selection for this aplication. Sound is much better than the 37 year old Becker speakers they replaced. I spent a great deal of time looking for speakers that would fit the dash opening without any modification since original speakers were 100mm. These speakers went in without any modification to the dash. The factory speaker grills also fit over these speakers without modification.

Pros: They fit! Great speakers for anyone thinking of replacing the original factory speakers in any 1973 - 1989 Mercedes Benz SL. They fit perfectly and are a good value at this price.

Cons: No "plug and play" harness available for my aplication.

R14 X 2 Rockford Fosgate

Brent S from seattle, WA on 3/14/2016

These sound ok at low to medium volume. Turn it up and the distortion becomes more than evident. They may be fine for grandmas Volvo but you Rock and Roll loving head bangers are going to be disappointed in these speakers at anything more then moderate volume. They just cant handle the power (which can be said for most 4" speakers) They claim 30 watts RMS 60 watts peak... It's closer to 20 watts RMS and 40 Peak - which doesn't bode well when you feel the need to crank it up. I'll be seeking a refund and other speakers.

Pros: Good looking speaker with nice protective grill included along with the speaker wires and mounting screws.

Cons: Poor sound quality at anything above "medium" volume. Not enough bang for your buck.... If they sounded a good as they looked I would have given them 5 stars.They won't even make decent sound when pushed with a mediocre amp... Less than 30 watts of useable power though they claim 60 peak.

Painful install, well worth the effort!

Jim P. from Elgin, IL. on 2/26/2016

1993 Cadillac DeVille
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Using Crutchfield support to spec out new replacement Speakers (x6), AMP, and Sub to coincide with a new VX7012 Radio for a 93 Deville, these speakers were identified for front Dash location. The install was painful as the existing fiberglass pocket under the dash pad was not large enough to pass the larger magnet, attached resistor, and actual terminal/connectors through the existing hole. Patience and an hour or so with a dremel to strategically enlarge the fiberglass sub-structure under the Dash pad was my resolve. Once installed, and a rather large mess was cleaned up, sound was superb from these larger than tiny OEM speakers (even without the amp fired up). I'm confident all installs will not be as painful as mine, though if any consolation... it was well worth the effort! Thanks Crutchfield.

Pros: Well Built Speakers Well Packaged Price Adapter plates were included with speaker purchase 1 pair of OEM speaker connector harness included with speaker purchase Superb sound (for my taste)

Cons: Was not an easy install into existing 1993 Sedan Deville - Dash location

Dropped these little guys perfectly into my Grand Prix's 4" rear deck openings, turned on the radio, and oh, the clarity! These sound amazing for such little speakers. Even when I cranked the volume far past my normal listening levels, there was no distortion in sound. Great value from the team at Rockford Fosgate.

Pros: Great sound, even better price. Crutchfield shipping is always top-notch.

Cons: My car wouldn't let me use the aftermarket speaker grills without some serious dremel work. Other than that, nothing whatsoever.

jnewcomb from California on 5/31/2015

2014 Chevrolet Spark
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Looking to upgrade the nasal sound in my 2015 Chevy Spark EV, I purchased these units. Crutchfield did not have a listing for compatible speakers, but others on the web had similar installs with these speakers. They are definitely more efficient than stock front drivers, clear in the mid and highs. I did not expect much bass, they are very small. I had to remove the small stock plastic ported enclosure and snap off two of the new speakers mounting tabs for it to work. Crutchfield supplied terminal adapters at no cost, so no real modifications to the car. In all fairness to Chevrolet, the stock speakers could probably use some dampening material in the plastic cup enclosure and eliminate some of plastic coloration. I am happy with the price/performance of these units.

Pros: Great price to performance, definite upgrade to stock units.

Cons: Not real bass performers, but what do you want from such a small speaker?

Great Speakers

JPM from Colorado on 4/27/2015

2004 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After I was able to get the speakers installed they sound great. Great clarity and true sound with no distortion with high volume. I probably could've gone with a bigger speaker as these barely fit the hole in my door. The website also said I didn't need an adapter to mount them to the door, but one would've made the install easier. I had to drill new holes and use the brackets with the speakers. I matched these with the Rockford Fosgate Prime R152-S component speakers in the front.

Pros: Great sound and bass.

Cons: speaker wire that came with speakers was too small of gauge. Just threw it out and spliced the wiring adapter from Crutchfield into car's wiring and connected them to speakers.

Colin from Stamford, CT on 4/14/2015

2004 Subaru Impreza WRX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Speakers themselves are not bad but they are overwhelmed by the front speakers in my application. I suppose that was my fault though for ordering smaller speakers... The main gripe i had was that these were advertised as direct fit with adaptors sent by crutchfield. However, they needed custom brackets made. To be fair to Crutchfield, they quickly shipped me several sets of adaptors which the service advisor thought may work but i still had to modify one of them to get the speakers to fit.

Pros: great price, clear sound

Cons: If you have an 04 Subaru WRX, check the construction under your door panel before ordering so you know if custom mounts are needed. little to no bass

not bad

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This speaker may work well for a different application. This was my fault, I was looking for good quality speaker to go in the rear doors of my 2004 GMC Sierra. Looking though the Crutchfield website I was under the impression that the only size that would fit without cut a larger hole. Once again this was my fault, I should have looked further, The existing cut out is 4x6 that is the size that I should have ordered. Back to the Fosgates, their sound is very clear but very low and I don't mean low as in base I mean Low as in volume. As far as base they had virtually no base. But then again they are a 4" speaker. If you have room for a 4" speaker and what some good clean mid ranges and highs these are a good speaker.

Pros: Good clear mid-range and highs

Cons: No Base. then again it's only 4"

I decided to write this review based on my installation of product for a 1999 Toyota Avalon with the stock Altec Lansing 7 speaker system. Sofar I have 1 of the 2 spkrs installed in passenger side/front. I left the stock tweeter connected. I can't tell much of a difference between the stock mid and the 2 way Fosgate. I'm sure with more power it might prove to be better than stock one for loud volumes. There will be a thin gap the circumference of speaker after mounted. You will have to refoam the little air vent next to speaker or just leave it without like i did. Clearance is fine for front doors with speaker. Mounting is troubling though. If you are fine with 2 screws to hold it it's fine, however there is not enough width in the molded plastic to mount more than 3 screws if your lucky. All in all it was fun to install speaker and compare it to stock. If you don't plan to upgrade your head unit or amplify these the stock Altec Lansing system is comparable in my opinion. I think to hear the value of these speakers it might take toward their max. rms input and a sensitive ear to details based on my particular install situation. I am sure that these speakers will be a definate upgrade for many cars but not so much in my case.

Pros: Sound on par with the stock 'premium' ones when installed solely replacing factory speaker and leaving fact. tweeter in. Probly better sound with higher wattage. crisp highs and decent low end for size.

Cons: No cons. At this time I just can't tell much difference in sound based on my test setup.

Nice replacement

Really like my replacement speakers. Audio quality much improved over factory speakers.

Pros: highs and mids much better. Easy installation using existing wiring.

Cons: Could use more bass response.

Product Research


Tweeters: Each speaker features a 1/2" Silk dome tweeter. The embedded design maintains the correct phase relationship between the tweeter and woofer, and doesn't add to the speaker's overall height.

4/2 Hole Compatibility: The speakers' mounting tabs can be removed, allowing installation in 4-hole or 2-hole applications. Please refer to the Crutchfield Car Selector to confirm fit for your vehicle.

Klippel Analysis: By using a state-of-the-art Klippel Distortion Analyzer, Rockford Fosgate engineers can optimize the speaker's motor structure, voice coil alignment, and suspension for the best possible performance and the lowest distortion.

Hi it's Steve. The stock speakers look like 4". I have not taken them out yet to measure. I have a number of people that want to change speakers and they are waiting to see what I find that will sound good without breaking your budget. [ Steve  Apr 22, 2014 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The best option would be the Polk Audio DXi525's. These will be more marine grade than any other manufacturer that we carry. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
