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

Excellent factory replacement

Better components give you better detail

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.

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.

Features

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.

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.

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 ]

No - they are designed as a direct replacement for your existing car speakers and require no vehicle modifications. [ David  Feb 12, 2016 ]
No [ dan  Dec 01, 2014 ]
