Sound Ordnance™ P-52C
5-1/4" component speaker system
Our take on the Sound Ordnance™ P-52C by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
Sound Ordnance component speakers invade your car's listening space with clear sonic reproduction that'll mobilize your music. You'll enjoy the new life these rugged speakers bring to your system, all at a budget-friendly price.
The P-52C 5-1/4" component system sports tough polypropylene woofers that can handle just about any musical onslaught. Mount the separate 3/4" silk dome tweeters in a strategic spot, and they'll deploy all the musical details — you'll enjoy improved definition without harshness. Outboard 2-way crossovers direct the frequencies to the speakers for a balanced sonic attack. The black powder-finished stamped steel frames tell you that these Sound Ordnance components mean business, while a 3-year warranty gives you peace of mind for the long haul.
Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

Why did you buy this?
Customer service rep Rocky recommended these as a comparable unit to other speakers I was looking at but were out of stock. These were also cheaper than the others I was looking at. Rocky's Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=163 [ James Mar 18, 2016 ]

I have two sets in my 05 Ford pickup. They sound amazing compared to stock. But I have a aftermarket receiver as well. The salesman recommended putting a amp on them to release their full potential. [ LUCAS Aug 04, 2015 ]
I installed these speakers in a Toyota Tacoma and found that the sound was noticeably crisp and clearer than what I had in there before. You would need to have other large woofers to make up for any bass that you may be looking for. We already had other larger speakers to compliment these. Hope this helps. [ GREGG Aug 03, 2015 ]
They provide a nice crisp sound, they definetely benefit from a sub though. They do have all the wiring and what is needed for mounting the tweeters for various mounting which is a plus in my book. I mounted in door of 2004 f150,mounted the crossoverbehind door panel, allowing to get at the switch for different crossover option switch it has (after removing the window switch panel, an easy/quick job)In the end you must decide about the room you have and which you think will fit the best in your situation.
