Features

Size Classification Note: Some manufacturers, including Hertz, call this size woofer a 6-1/2". Because it requires a larger cutout than a standard 6-1/2" speaker, Crutchfield has traditionally referred to this size speaker as a 6-3/4". Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.

Tweeter Mounting: Brackets are included for flush mounting and angled surface mounting (60° or 30°) the tweeters.

Tweeter Mounting Dimensions:

  Flush Mount 60° Angled Surface Mount 30° Angled Surface Mount
Mounting Height 0.366" 1.232" 1.515"
Depth 0.426" N/A N/A
Frame Diameter 1.605" N/A N/A
Cutout Diameter 1.420" N/A N/A
Frame Width N/A 1.463" 1.463"
Frame Depth N/A 1.535" 1.255"

Crossovers: The crossovers have input and output wires attached (19" input, 19" tweeter output, 12" woofer output). The woofer has quick slide terminals, but the wire has no terminals attached, so crimp-on terminals can be added (item number 120FQS10PK, sold separately) to provide the needed terminals. The crossover point is 3.5 kHz and the high pass slope is 12 dB/octave. The woofer output is not crossed over.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Width: 2.97" (3.15" including the wire)
  • Height: 0.86"
  • Depth: 1.78"

Customer Q&A

4 questions already asked

Q
What is the frequency of the woofer, and what rms wattage is needed to power the woofer and tweeter separately?
jordan carl  Aug 16, 2022
1 answer
A
The crossover uses 3.5kHz as the divide of the audio between the drivers which makes the frequency range of the woofer 50Hz to 3.5kHz. If you are bi-amping the speakers by giving each driver their own amp channel, we recommend using an amp that is rated up to 80 watts RMS per channel. This will help ensure each driver gets the power they were expecting for the audio range it will get from the amp/processor setup
