Put Rockford Fosgate sound in your car without breaking the bank. Whether you're building your first system or replacing some burned-out factory speakers, Prime component speaker systems offer clean, powerful performance that'll keep you and your friends entertained as you drive.
The Prime R152-S component system includes 5-1/4" woofers with stiff mica-injected polypropylene cones that deliver strong drums and bass, along with clean reproduction of the midrange frequencies. The separate 1" Mylar balanced dome tweeters top things off with vibrant highs that add excitement to your music without a trace of harshness. You can flush- or surface-mount the tweeters, so you can create the best possible soundstage, plus keep the installation neat. Built-in crossovers ensure a smooth audio response, so all your music plays faithfully.
Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

Should be more power. They distort a little
Sounds good for the price paid. VERY easy to install with included adapters. Did have to use hole saw to install tweeters.
I'm new to car audio, but I've always heard Rockford Fosgate is a quality brand. I can now say it from experience. These speakers are so much better than my factory speakers. I installed these in my F150 S-Crew and they sound awesome. I wish the bass did bump a little harder, but that is what subs are for right? I did have to modify the sail panels and enlarge the existing hole to install the tweeters (I didn't read the description well enough, which stated that I may need to modify this... Like I said I'm new) anyways, they turned out looking pretty awesome. The install was extremely easy! Plus I KNEW I could count on the Amazing crew at Crutchfield if I needed them! So I wasn't worried!
Pros: Awesome sound and Great price!
Cons: None so far
These speakers sound great! Flush mounted the tweeters in the A pillars and the adapters that were supplied to fit the original 5x7 door cut outs made installing the 5-1/4 drivers a breeze! Would definitely recommend powering these with a small amplifier to bring them to their full potential. They don't put out a lot of low end bass but with small door drivers you can't really expect much. But mids and highs are crisp, clear and full sounding.
Pros: Great quality and full range sound.
Cons: Mounting tabs supplied with speakers are a bit tight on the adapter plate. But open them up slightly and they'll work.
The sound quality of these speakers is phenomenal, I'm running my factory head unit with the factory amp, and these things just blow the factory speakers out the window.
Pros: Easy to install, great lows, clean crisp sound
I have used Rockford Fosgate Prime speakers on a few of my vehicles/projects and have been impressed with them. These were no different. Great sound, great price and great fit. The tweeters fit right in the factory locations on our 2016 Fusion without any modification.
Pros: Great sound for the money and fit like factory
The speakers sound good nice midrange you really don't need a subwoofer unless you want the full effect of the lows
Pros: Good clarity for a component speaker
Cons: None so far
I am just as satisfied with these speakers for the front as I was for the ones in the rear. Good sound for a great price.
Can complain about free, required spacers. Thanks, I needed them!
Pros: Fit as described
These speakers sound really good and at a great price. Fosgate has been around for a long time and they have a good rep. I would recommend these speakers for anyone who wants to replace their old factory speakers.
Pros: Great Price For Great Quality
My advisor suggested these since I listen to pretty drum heavy stuff. He was absolutely right. The speakers reproduce drums with good clarity without sacrificing the vocals and other instruments.
I really enjoy this new upgrade on my tacoma. Very nice sounds coming from these things. I've always wanted to change to component system but some are so expensive. This one had really good reviews and am glad I bought them...am happy girl in my happy tacoma.
Pros: High and miss very crisp, easy installation, price point was awesome.
Very good budget minded speakers, I wasn't looking to spend very much on speakers but I wanted some components so could choose where to put tweeters. This fit the bill perfectly. Now I can hear so much more within my noisy Suzuki samurai. Thank you.
Pros: Good ease of install with several ways to mount the tweeters
Cons: I'm happy with them.
Purchase for a 1987 Buick Grand National because I discovered one of my original door speakers had a hole in it. This kit fit perfect. Will need to drill out stock rivets but thats not hard. Will also need to route the tweeter wire from the stock tweeter location (dash) through the door grommet to connect to the door speaker. The tweeters do not plug into the stock wiring up in the dash but that's ok because it comes with the necessary wire. Will have to modify the OEM tweeter plastic housing by drill out a hole to install the tweeters from the kit. The "cross over" is built into the speaker so no need to find a special location for the crossover box. Very easy install and sound good. I would buy again.
Pros: Good fit
Good value for the sound it produces
While the overall component sound is pretty on the highs, particularly on the vocals and treble. It does sound a tad empty due to the fact that it performs extremely poor on the lows. While some may prefer this, the low bass response is lacking, empty and just not even there. While a great speaker system in weight and quality, just make sure that you have a bass back up or don't mind getting sub-par lows. Not necessarily loud speakers and sensitivity becomes apparent the louder speaker is played.
Pros: Treble, vocals and highs, material used.
Cons: Lows, sensitivity
2010 Tundra replaced factory paper speakers, what a difference. Should of done this along time ago.
With a decent deck that can put power to these speakers they sound great. I had to adjust the treble down so it didn't over run the bass. I did have trouble with sound at first, but it was because I had + and - reversed due to my car's speaker wiring. After I straightened that out, I had no problems.
Pros: Good quality sound for the price being able to get loud with no distortion
Cons: The tweeter didn't mount easily in my car. Had to get some screws to do the install the right way.
Installed in my daughter's Integra. I like how the tweeters connect at the main speaker. Great sound and more bass than I expected.
Pros: Clear tones, Tweeters connect at 5 1/4
Cons: None ay this time
I replaced the front door component speakers on my 2010 Mazda 3 after one of them blew. I was hesitant to order these speakers after reading some negative reviews on the sound quality. After some research, I found that if you have a factory stereo and are replacing the speakers with a lower sensitivity (dB) rating, the speakers may not receive enough power from the head unit in order for the speakers to reach their optimum level; however, because of the Mazda 3 door configuration, there were not a lot of options for speakers with a higher dB rating for me to choose from that would fit. Because my options were limited and my budget didn't allow for a new head unit, I decided to give these speakers a try. Besides, there were were a number of other high reviews. The speakers sound amazing with my factory stereo! The highs are crisp and clear. I can actually hear the crispness of cymbals. The lows could be better, but for the price, these speakers are worth it. The speakers were relatively easy to install with the Scosche mounting brackets and the step-by-step guide provided by Crutchfield. The only hiccup I had was with the tweeter speakers. The factory tweeter speakers clip into the sail panel; however, the new tweeters are slightly bigger and do not fit. I was able to fabricate my own mount inside the sail. This was not a surprise because the Crutchfield's install guide warned me this may be the case. I will come back to Crutchfield for all of my audio needs.
Pros: Great price. Relatively easy to install. Great clarity in mid and high sounds. Great upgrade from my factory speakers.
Cons: Woofer needs more power; however, I believe this is more of an issue with the head unit, not the speakers.
I needed component speakers for my Mini Cooper and these worked perfectly. I didn't bother changing out the tweeters. Good sound for the money.
Pros: Good price. Good sound.
Cheap and effective product for replacing stock speakers in my stock tacoma.
Decent speakers but they really need an amp or a good aftermarket head unit. In my Mazda 3 the bass is more like a pop then a deep boom. So don't get these on a stock head unit only.
replaced the speakers in my mazda 3 - these sound much worse than the blown factory speakers - no bass, poor mounting hardware (screws are like 3" long, too long for a door)... On the other hand, the tweeters sound good. Don't bother with these speakers.
Cons: terrible sound quality.Crutchfield response on 1/27/2015 That's a common reaction when replacing car speakers. What you can expect to hear from a new speaker is better clarity and definition in the mids and highs. So your music will sound better and more lifelike, but you might not hear more bass. In the case of these Rockford Fosgate components, their low sensitivity (85db) means that they're going to need a good deal more power than your factory speakers needed in order to sound their best. They likely won't sound good at all on a factory stereo, and even the extra power of an aftermarket stereo might not be enough to really bring them to life. You'll either need to add an amplifier (a small, 40-50 watts, 4-channel amp can supply twice the power of an aftermarket stereo and three or four times the power of the typical factory radio) or return these and get speakers with a higher sensitivity. Either way, we'll be glad to help - just give us a call.
Thought it'd have a great improvement on my e36 bmw but instead it underperformed compared my factory speakers
Installed 2 sets of these in my 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 Megacab. Fit good, drilled a hole in the door panel for the tweeters. The sound out of these are a bit tinny. There was no low end and lost a lot of bass just from the factory 6x9s in the front doors. I had added a set of subwoofers later on to correct this. However, the sound at volume just sounded very cheap. You get what you pay for and later found out that 'PRIME' is their entry level. I found it to be junk. Tweeters didn't sound all that bad, only reason why I gave it a 2 rating. If you were a new driver, first car, first car stereo.. you may like them.. but will later on find these were not very good.
Pros: Cheap, looks good.
Cons: Lack of sound quality all around.
Great speakers. No problems installing them.
Speakers are great sounding replacements for oem speakers from my F-250. Installed on a Ford F-250 Crew Cab.
Pros: Sound, easy install
I bought this set of speakers for my 05 Escape and they fit like a charm with the free adapter plates. The tweeters were a little harder to install because of the size difference but a little tinkering and they're good to go. I have no complaints about sound. I have these paired with dual 10" solo barics and these really helped the highs and mids break out over the bass. Thanks Crutchfield for making this an easy purchasing process!
I absolutely love these. I bought these with a budget of around $150 and these are to replace my stock speakers in my ford f-250 superduty. Would reccomend highly for the price
Pros: Great price Sounds great
Speakers sound much better then the factory ones in my truck.
Pros: Easy to install and clarity is much better
I love that valve that you get with these speakers. The woofers are not as good as my stock speakers in my Pontiac Vibe, however the quality vs price is good, but not best.
Cons: woofers need more power
Easy Installment, Very Crisp Clear, Bass Sounds Awsome, Best Speakers For The Price.. I Would Recommend To Anyone Wanting To Upgrade
Great choice for an upgrade from stock car speakers.
Pros: This item is loud and clear!
Absolutely love my primes, they look good sound great. Love the amps,and rms. can't wait to get and amplifier to they sound even better. I recommend these to anyone who wants a solid system in there car. Thanks.
Pros: Base. The tweeters are amazing! EVERYTHING.
Needed a cheap set of components to replace the factory speakers in my '03 Mazda, and these fit the bill quite nicely. I didn't plan on using an amp, so I didn't need high power handling, and the integrated crossover simplified install. Sound quality is improved over the stockers, but not concert hall. Volume does well, driven by an aftermarket kenwood receiver. Don't expect much in the way of bass, or you will probably be disappointed.
Pros: Cheap. Easy to install. Integrated crossover takes the hassle out of installing components.
Cons: average power handling, not an issue unless you plan on using an amp.
Bought these since they were on sale to replace the old & crusty front speakers in my volvo. I was very impressed with the built in crossover and how easy it was to mount up the tweeters to my door panel. The sound is amazing, clear and crisp with decent bass.
Pros: Price! Sound quality
Cons: none so far
For 100 dollars you cant expect the best. These are good speakers for the money
Well, I had anticipated a decent improvement to my car's sound system from my stock speakers that were wearing out, but I was disappointed. The speakers have absolutely no bass! You will barely even tell they are working. tweeters are weak too. Not what I was expecting at all. Dont go with these if you want better sound.
Pros: ehh new I guess
Cons: Tweeters are weak, speaker have no bass whatsoever.
I don't think you could buy a better set of components for the money.
Pros: Good build quality
Install in the wifes 2010 Mazda 3 wagon...Huge improvement over stock which had buzzing in driver's side at moderate volumne. Tweeters required removing stock molded in housing with a dremel, using the deeper backs for the tweeter, and securing them with a c-clip cut from the supplied ring for mounting. Tweeters aimed across the dash board produce highs without jangling the nerves. 5.5" round mounted easily with brackets supplied. Wiring was attaching spade connectors to supplied wire. Over all install was easly after gleening info from youtube. Results are fuller range of sound at all volumns.
Pros: good price for a good set of speakers
Cons: must be willing to modify for tweeters mounting buy some door panel retainers as a few will break
I bought these for my 99 Miata, thinking it wouldn't take much to fill the tiny cabin of the Miata, but I learned it's going to take a lot more than these. They hold the lines pretty well, but there's a lot of high end distortion, and so much is lost on the two-way. I have to say, if you have the money for anything with higher wattage, DO IT. These are not the speakers you're looking for.
Pros: Decent low support
Cons: Awful mid and highs, sound is tinny and harsh
These were installed in the front speakers of my 2012 Mazda 3. I was able to mount the tweeters in the sail panels. In any case, they sound decent ford their size and price. They do get a little distorted at the highest volume and can't handle much gain. Also, the tweeters are harsh. Still, a solid choice for the Mazda 3 if you don't want to shell out for Focals or do custom work.
Love to built in crossover. Called Crutchfield on a Sunday to get some help. These things did not come with any install info for the tweeters. In order to switch to the angle mount something had to come apart. The adviser suggested twisting it and I finally got them apart. Went pretty well from there. With limited speaker options I chose these for the rear in a hatchback. It's an experiment in progress.
Pros: Built in crossovers
Cons: Poor install instructions
Great product. Easy to install and they sound great. I have these running off of an Alpine MRX-V60 and the power that comes out of them is amazing and the tweeters help the sound stage in my 2006 Ford Expedition. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a good component set of speakers
Pros: easy to install, sounds great, tweeters have great power
Cons: instructions are a little iffy as far as where what cables connect where.
Great sound, easy install. I'm not much of a techie, but I installed these myself. They sound awesome!
Great speakers. Installed two pairs into my Jeep Cherokee with Alpine head unit and an Alpine 45X4 watt amp. Installation of the speakers were quick and easy. They sound terrific. Couldn't be happier.
Bought these because the local shop suggested them. I have done speakers in the past, so I thought these would be no problem especially since there was an install kit and instructions. Nowhere does it show tweeter installation or breakdown or say modifications to stock locations REQUIRED!! I was replacing a factory Bose system, because the 2-way was blown, and do not think these are even half as good as the stock. My vehicle was not listed, but the adviser found the "correct" speakers by using a different trim level. Rear speakers not even close, stock was a 6" with a trim piece to 6 1/4" and I WAS SOLD 6 3/4". The new mount ring was 1/4" outside any mounting area. If I were to modify they still would not fit because the depth was also different and the door panel would mash the speaker. The instruction are worse than the foreign language translated instruction in any assembly required product you buy. They are so vague, the cost benefit of "free" says it all. I would not do the internet thing again in a similar situation. I would rather pay a higher price locally and return them when they fail to be what was promised.
These speakers sound a lot better than I thought they would. Big Sound from little speakers. Very little modification to fit in the stock locations in rear of my '88 BMW 325. I would recomend them to anyone with a tight space to fill. Liked that the crossover was built in and not a seperate componate
The Rockford Fosgate Prime R152-S Speakers were a pleasant Surprise, They were a perfect fit and no modifications were needed not even for the tweeters. The sound is very rich and full they compliment The Rockford Fosgate Punch 1692 perfectly and you can definitely turn up the volume they still sound Good. Great buy for the Money.
Good sounding speaker for the price. The tweeters are especially nice compared to the stock units in my GMC. Installation in my truck was not plug and play. Installation did take a little modification but nothing anyone couldn't handle with a drill.
Was just looking for a small woofer and component was the only way to get it. Tried the tweeter and the stock one sounded better so i stayed with my stock tweeter. As far as the woofer, sounds a little week to me. If you are looking for a wow! these speakers are NOT it.
I have had these in for around a week now and WOW they are Awesome!! If your on the fence about getting them just do it!
great speakers sound clear and crisp
installation was easy, the only problem was when you mount the twitters there was nothing to hold them in place and the installation instruction for flushed mounting them is too short to cover the desired installation it your creative you'll find a way. and for the sound not as good as i thought it should be. overall easy installation and average sound quality.
This component speaker system rocks, and with no extra crossovers ( they are built in) make it a great install. Really sounds crisp!
Amazing!!! I could not believe the huge difference in sound quality these speakers made. Absolutly satisfied and highly recommended.
speakers sound better than I expected.
Great speakers, I have always trusted Rockford Fosgate and they came through again. These compononent speakers havea a crisp clear sound. I would like a little more base, however I am pretty sure that can only be achieved with sub woofers. Great speakers for the price.
Awesome sound for a great price!!!
These speakers sound great. I am hearing notes and words in the songs that I did not know were there. The installation instructions that come with the speakers leave a bit to the imagination, but in the end, any trouble was more than worth the effort. The bass is tight, and the highs from the tweeters are clean. All in all a good investment.

Yes they will. Maybe a bit of customizing for the tweeters but you should be fine.[ Frank Jul 13, 2016 ]
There is no need for an extra power wire. The additional speaker wire lengths will depend on the mounting location of the tweeters and crossover in relation to the speaker. If you are buying a component set, it should include all of the wire you need. If you are adding a crossover/tweeters to an existing speaker you should only need speaker wire to connect the speaker and tweeter to crossover. If you hit a snag Crutchfields customer support is amazing![ Ray May 17, 2016 ]
