The flush-mount tweeter allows this speaker to fit in more locations and provides a more focused image.
Whether you're building your first system or replacing some burned-out factory speakers, Rockford Fosgate's Prime Series R168X2 6"x8" 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.
Each 6"x8" 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 not included — factory grilles are appropriate for most applications.
Average Customer Review(s):
For the price they are good speakers. After installing and hearing them, I bought a set of Infinity Kappa speakers.
Great factory replacement speaker reasonable price direct fit no problems
Pros: Nice replacement speaker reasonable price no disappointments
Cons: None that I'm aware of
Real pleased with the sound of speakers. Had blown driver side rear door speaker which would rattle and hum when any power went to it.
Pros: Speakers fit opening nicely which was a big help.
Cons: Old speakers had a foam gasket around them that the new ones didn't have. Storms were headed my way on install day. Will check with Rockford Fosgate to see if needed.
These sound amazing. Huge improvement over my factory mustang speakers. Crutchfield makes it so simple with the free included factory specific harnesses!
Pretty decent speakers. Not much for lows, and decent highs. We will see how they sound after the factory radio is replaced.
Cons: Lows and highs. Decent mids.
Great sound for the money install was perfect came with the factory connectors.
Great speakers for the price. Not top of the line but a worthwhile replacement for the factory units. These fit both the front and back doors of the F150 FX4 super cab I own. Paired with the SO powered sub the stem sounds really clean and does not suffer the distortion the factory speakers had. 100% recommend for a value replacement.
OMG, used these speakers to replace the front two blown out factory speakers in my 2011 Ford Escape. Let's just say I have to get another pair for the rear now because I cannot even hear the factory speakers in the rear. These little guys have loudness, clarity, a little bass, and the cost is not bad either. I've always been a fan for Rockford Fosgate as they have never let me down. Another great product here.
Pros: Perfect fit for my vehicle, clarity, bass, loud, and cost efficient
Great speakers for a great price
One of the front speakers in my truck sounded good with music, but awful with the news on. Replaced with these. Sounds great, definitely louder than the stock speakers with more range. I was nervous about taking the door panel off, but with the included instructions the whole job took me less than an hour and most of that was searching for the right size socket.
Pros: Does exactly what it's supposed to. ie: it just works
Good sound from a small speaker. Worth every penny.
These speakers are well worth the money. Easy to install.
I purchased these speakers for my F 250 and they are Perfect, Great clear sound for the price, Next I will be adding an amp to really make these Happy!!
Pros: Perfect fit along with the provided wiring
Speakers sound great over stock high end clearly improved perfect fit quick and easy install
Pros: Easy install
Cons: Would sound better using an amplifier
Great sounding speakers, clear and punchy sound.
Good fit better sound than original speakers
I ordered these to replace the original Bose speakers in my Mazda 3. They were easy to install and I purchased the recommended baffles and they were also easy to install. These speakers sounded great for a day and then I noticed a vibrating sound when they bass would get going and it completely ruined the mid to highs when bass would come in to the song. I checked the mounts to make sure it wasn't door panel rattle. Now a couple weeks in they sound completely blown. I'm very disappointed with these speakers.
Pros: Ease of installation The sounded great for a day
Cons: They don't last and have completely blown Now I'm out 60$ and my sound quality is worse than before.Crutchfield response on 9/6/2016 If you purchased this product from Crutchfield, feel free to contact our Tech Support team.

Great replacement speaker for OEM really has a nice sound
Pros: Very easy to install in 2008 Ford F250
Cons: The factory tweeters in the rear wont work after install
Indefinitely satisfied with my purchase. They were a great price and the sound is phenomenal. They haven't even fully broken in yet and they already have clear concise quality sound from low lows to high highs. And crutchfield always does good with shipping and handling the product and makes it quick and easy with the adapters. I always shop with crutchfield and will continue to as long as they offer they're awesome service and awesome products! Overall I'm superbly satisfied!
Installed in door, I will end up buying the recommended Baffles.
Pros: All good
Easy install. Sound good
Pros: Clear clean sound.
Cons: Doesnt have much bass and needs an amp to take advantage of these
I recently bought a 2004 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4x4 with Factory Stereo, Speakers and Sub. I replaced my front door mounted factory speakers with these and they are much louder than the original speakers. I was able to use the screws that were used on the original speakers and they mounted into the door without ANY problems. They provide some much needed bass compared to the original Factory Speakers. I will be replacing the rear speakers as well now that I have heard them! Eventually I will replace the factory Stereo as well which should really improve the overall sound system.
Pros: Loud Clear Some Low End Bass which is more than what the Factory Speakers provided. No Vehicle Trim Rattles when cranked!!
These speakers were only a slight improvement over the factory speakers. They weren't even the speakers I was going to buy. The sales person recommended them. Very disappointed but too much trouble for me to take out and send back.
Cons:Crutchfield response on 6/14/2016 Whenever you are disappointed with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, please contact our Customer Support team. Purchases from Crutchfield can be returned or exchanged within 60 days of the purchase.
little speakers,big sound.Well worth the 60 bones.
Very pleased with the installation and output of these speakers. I replaced my stock 2011 F-150 speakers which are notorious for their terrible quality. Once I got the door panels off the speakers aligned perfectly with the grommets in the door. The wiring harnesses Crutchfield provided attached quick and easy and everything fit together perfectly. The sound quality in my truck is night and day better and that is still with the stock stereo. Speakers have great range across all levels of sound and there is definitely a signature punch and crispness to Rockford speakers compared to some other aftermarket speakers I've heard like Alpine, Kicker, etc. Next step will be to install a line out converter and a Rockford 4-channel amp to really get these speakers banging. Great purchase overall, only wish I had done it sooner!
So much better than stock speakers ! theyre awesome !
Great sound 4 da price,lot better then stock speakers. .....
Awsome sound for the price....fast shipping also.
Pros: Rock solid sound
A solid product for the money. Very happy.....
Pros: Sound is exceptional
awesome replacement speaker from the factory ones. sounds 10 times better than the old ones and was a exact fit
Pros: great overall improvement over factory speakers in very way
Great little speaker for the price. This is the third set of these that I have purchased now to replace stock speakers in different vehicles.
Put these in the rear. Better than stock but nearly as good as the punch series speakers I have in the front.
Perfect fit for 2013 xlt f150 front doors. Sound is noticeably better, crisper, cleaner than stock trash that ford serves. YouTube video makes the replacement take about 25 mins for first door, 15 mins second door.
Pros: Much better than stock. Free shipping. Wiring harness provided. What are you waiting for?
Cons: None. Perfect fit. Easy replace.
Bought 4 of these to replace my factory speakers. Recently installed an Alpine radio, amp., and 12" Baseline Alpine Sub. Sounded great. But lacking in the highs and mids. Installed these with the connectors that came free with the purchase of the speakers and boy did these make a world of difference. Not only did the mids and highs sound great but the additional bass was pleasant surprise. Very clear sound for an affordable price.
Pros: Performance and price awsome
Cons: Nothing as of yet. And not expecting anything either.
The stock speakers in the front doors of my Ford F150 had blown out and the buzzing was driving me crazy. Saw the Rockford-Fosgate speakers on sale and ordered them right away. They arrived promptly, and with the enclosed instruction sheet I was able to easily remove the inside door panels and replace the stock speakers. It's been a couple of weeks now and the sound is terrific and a great relief from the annoying clatter I was dealing with.
Pros: Inexpensive; clear, concise and easy to follow instructions
Cons: None so far
Cructhfield specified speaker replaced deteriorated factory speaker in truck door, sound quality is drastically improved, good replacement, and upgrade
As a direct replacement for standard, cheap OEM, this speaker is perfect.
Pros: durable, powerful, well-made
Love these. They work great with my 12 inch Rockford fosgate P1 subwoofers and my 500 watt Rockford fosgate amplifier! Huge upgrade from stock speakers. Now just to replace the rear speakers (:<
Pros: huge upgrade, easy install
The stock front speakers in my 2014 F-150 STX were awful. It seems ford has had a rash of either blown speakers or bad speakers harnesses in the F-150 since around 2011. Mine was blown (replaced under warranty) about a month after I drove it off the lot. The sound is about what you'd expect from a $9 speaker, so i decided to upgrade. I completed the install today and there is a Very noticeable difference in the sound quality. The highs are much more pronounced and the bass is nice and tight. Couple that with a great price and world-class service I've always received from Crutchfield, and this upgrade was a no-brainer. The installation was pretty simple using the instructions Crutchfield provided. I also watched an online video on F150 speaker replacement which helped as well. Total time for the install was about 30 minutes, which included gathering the correct tools for the job. I would highly recommend the upgrade to anyone who's on the fence about whether or not a simple speaker replacement makes any noticeable difference in the sound quality without adding an aftermarket head unit, amplifier, etc. Trust me, you will notice a difference and you will not be disappointed.
Pros: Great price, great sound quality and great service.
Cons: I didn't install these as soon as I bought the vehicle (It's a sad fact that I should have to, but it's true).
Great product with a great sound and easy installation
easy to install good sound
These speakers are awesome! Replaced a set of speakers in the back of my F150 and they sound amazing! With the Crutchfield instructions and adaptors, total install time was about 20 minutes!
Pros: Great sound, seem to be built very nice
Installed in rear door of 2004 F150 Supercab. Easy install with no modifications needed. Sound amazing. Major upgrade to stock Ford speakers.
Pros: Price. Sound. Ease of install.
They're good speakers coupled with a solid stereo, but not as much bass as I would have liked, so that's a disappointment. Installed easily enough in my Ford Contour, although I will at some point have to Redhill holes for the other 2 mounting points per speaker.
Pros: Decent speakers at loud volumes
Cons: Not a lot of bass
Installed easily in a 2012 Ford Escape. Nice upgrade over the existing paper speakers. I agree with other reviews that the bass is definitely lacking, but much better than stock speakers. If you are looking for punch in your bass go with a 3-way speaker or sub-woofer, these will not be your answer.
Pros: Clear sound and easy installation.
Cons: Very little bass.
Great speakers glad I chose Rockford Fosgate
I replaced my stock 2012 F-150 speakers with these in the front doors only. It has now been 4 months (adequate time for them to break in) and these speakers are just plain sounding. They have no bass, which is okay because I have to JL Audio dual 10's. On top of that, I seemed to have gotten rather flat mids and highs. They are moderately loud but definitely show distortion at higher volumes. To me, they don't sound much better than my stock F-150 speakers. Do yourself a favor and pay a little more for a better speaker such as the Polk Audio DB571 or any other non-entry level aftermarket speaker. These are very basic and if you are looking to really boost your system look elsewhere. You get what you pay for in speakers.
Pros: Easy to install, well constructed
Cons: No bass, flat mids, flat highs, not very loud, very noticeable distortion.
These speakers bolted directly into place in my 2011 Ford F250. They sound great with new head unit. These are a great replacement for the stock speakers, and seem to have more clarity and bass.
Pros: Sound great! Direct fit for my application.
I purchased a Kenwood KDC-BT562U receiver and on recommendation of Hogan I purchased these speakers for my 2001 town car to replace the front and rear speakers . The sound is very crisp and bass can have a good punch depending on type of music. I played some Latin Reggaeton with has some deep bass and Stevie Ray Vaughan's "Chitlins Con Carnet" instrumental they sounded awesome even at volume level 25. Overall I they sound very clear and are a major upgrade from the factory system!
Pros: crisp sound
Replaced my Polk speakers that failed much clearer sound.
Pros: Sounds awesome
Replaced aftermarket pioneer speakers. These sound sooo much better. Louder, more bass, clearer sound. Will get another pair for the front.
Cons: Slightly deeper than others.
Excellent product! Easy install & I would recommend this item to anyone
Pros: Sounds awesome on the lows & the highs are crisp & clear
Good sound quality for the money
Great sounding speakers though now need to think about an amp, stock ford head doesn't push enough to full potential
Pros: Simple install and instructions supplied
Been a Rockford fan for years, these speakers help up and sound better than I expected
Pros: Ease of installation
Great speaker..tight bass accurate highs.. Low end response a slight lack.. But over all one of the best speakers i have owned
Pros: Sounds near perfect
Cons: Could use a little more low end.. With out an amp
Awesome easy installation. Best I have gotten replaced my stock mach audio system way better
I LOVE the sound of these silk domes. They were recommended by the Crutchfield staff, since I ordered four polk db571 but found out they won't fit my front door. I LOVE them. I told my friend about my order and he said "don't bother opening them, just return them, they sound muddy" I'm glad I didn't they sound GREAT. to each his own. clear sound with a warm feeling. not tinny or ear piercing.
Pros: clean warm sound. Not tinny at all. doesn't pierce my ear when loud.
Cons: none yet :)
All around a good product.
Pros: Easy to install
Cons: Wire harness adapter is of poor quality.
As usual, qualified by, "for the price...". These things KICK! Very impressed by the substantial upgrade over stock. Installed very easily - highly recommended at any price.
Pros: Price and performance.
Cons: Don't have any idea how to determine life span...
These speakers are perfect for stock replacement, and arent bad if your building your first stereo.
Pros: Great high and decent mid, very loud, great stock replacement.
Cons: Not much bass, mid could have been a bit better.
As usual another fine product from Rockford Fosgate. Very good quality sound, put them in my 2005 F250 to replace some blown Memphis car audio speakers that were installed in 2007. I had some Sony speakers that were to be installed in another vehicle so I put those in first. They were horrible and sounded very poor. I promptly ordered these and as is usual quick shipping from Crutchfield. I installed them the day I received them and they sound far superior to the Memphis car audio speakers that they replaced.
Pros: Great sound for the price.
Cons: None so far.
As title says, OK for price. Easy install. Sound OK. but not much better than stock speakers. The stock Ford speakers actually have a better bass! I was going to change all 4, but left rear ones in for the bass. Good sound other than that.
Pros: Easy install
Cons: Poor bass
Just installed and they sound great
Pros: Perfect fit and easy installation
Great speakers for the price. Replaced old pair of pioneer that had blown. First step in overhaul of entire system in my sons 91 mustang
Pros: Good price. Easy to install. Highs are crisp. Bass is decent ( need to add small amp to system)
sounds great. Easy install.
Great product and great price
Pros: Price Quality Clarity
Cons: None yet
The speakers sound just normal. They do sound better than the stock speakers that came with the car. I don't have them hooked up to an amp at the moment. I will write another review after I get them hooked to the amp.
Good product and easy to install.
I recently sold my old Ford F-150 and replaced it with a Ford Ranger Supercab. I had upgraded the rear speakers in the F-150 with a pair of RF Punch P1683 3-way speakers. I checked and saw they would fit the rear doors of the Ranger, but not the front doors. I gave Crutchfield a call and talked with Mike. He recommended I stick with the RF family to get the best sound match to the P1683's and recommended the RF Prime R168X2. He also made sure I got the proper wiring harnesses adapters for the Prime and Punch speakers to make my installation a breeze. The master sheet provided simple instructions for properly getting into the door panels and replacing all of my speakers. Tremendous sound upgrade over the 13 year old factory speakers breathing new life into the factory head unit. I had initially wanted some 3 way speakers, but I am very pleased with these 2 way speakers. Plenty of high end response for my ears. I am very happy with the speakers and as always very pleased with the level of support and service I received from Crutchfield.
Pros: Great mids and highs. Good base for a small speaker.
Great sounding speakers, tweeters sound very cleannand detailed, woofer has great midrange capability.
Pros: Inexpensive and very good sounding
Cons: Could use a little more bass
I installed these in the rear of my f150, they were quick and easy to install after disassembling the door XD. i have a 12" rockford fosgate punch p3s installed in my truck, i had a local pro installer give me a quote to install these ( which was absurd $$) who told me these speakers wouldn't sound good with my sub....i took my speakers home installed these and the smaller version of the same speaker in the front and they sound awesome....i would recommend these to anyone on a budget or looking to fix some blown speakers....if you dont have the cash for a phenomenal set with an amp to power them then look no farther these are a great buy for the price... they aren't as crisp as some other speakers out there and they aren't super bright.....but the sound quality for what you pay is astounding!
Pros: greater sound quality from stock
Cons: cant think of any
Great speakers. I bought these to replace my pioneer speakers, and they sound great. Clear treble, and pretty good bass. I would recommend these to anyone looking to replace stock speakers in their car.
Pros: Sound and look great!!
Just installed these speakers in both the rear and front of my 2013 Mustang. Although anything other than those stock speakers will probably sound good, these sound Amazing! I'm very happy with my purchase and would recommend these speakers to anyone.

No, but it would be best if you at least had an aftermarket Stereo. I bought a Sony Double-DIN stereo and it was more than enough boost for these. [ Gerald Feb 13, 2016 ]
Not at all, worked great with my stock system. Eventually if you'd like to upgrade to a head unit that has an internal amplifier these bad boys can handle it and sound even better. [ Timothy Feb 12, 2016 ]
John, I hooked it up to my existing system - however, I do have the Mach 460 from Ford - which does have 3 amps from the factory. So I would say yes, you should run amps - I also added a powered subwoofer and it really makes the system sound great. Hard to get really great sound without some power (amps) Hope this helps [ BERT A Feb 12, 2016 ]
No - its a perfect aftermarket replacement. It requires minimal effort to install and sounds great. I was very pleased with the results. [ David Feb 12, 2016 ]
No they do not [ Cole Feb 12, 2016 ]
