Boston Acoustics S65RC
6-1/2" 2-way car speakers
Our take on the Boston Acoustics S65RC by Crutchfield's Ken Nail
Boston Acoustic's S series speakers let you enjoy clear, natural sound, even with a low-powered system. And with a wide variety of sizes, you'll find a set for most commonly-sized speaker openings.
The Boston S65RC 6-1/2" speaker features a 3/4" tweeter with a built-in cooling system for long term reliability and excellent power handling. A contoured tweeter plane guides high-frequency output to create a larger listening "sweet spot," while Boston's Amplitude Modification Device (AMD) reduces harshness in the upper mids for clear, detailed sound.
The sturdy woofer cone teams up with a durable butyl rubber surround to produce tight, clean bass with minimal distortion. And you'll hear a smooth blend between the woofer and tweeter, thanks to the built-in crossover.
Note: Boston describes this model as a 6" speaker. Most manufacturers designate this same frame size as a 6-1/2" speaker. For simplicity's sake we list it as a 6-1/2" speaker.

The AMD (Amplitude Modification Device) located on the tweeter plane provides acoustical tuning for the midrange response while the shape of the tweeter plane improves off-axis response.

Crossover: Each speaker in Boston's S line features a specifically tuned crossover to deliver the best transition between the woofer and tweeter.
