Upgrading your car's factory speakers with of the Best Coaxial Car Speakers will give new life to your daily driving. Coaxial speakers combine the woofer and the tweeter onto the same axis. They are a combo package. This allows the projection of a full range of sound and frequencies from one speaker. They’re easier to install and easier to wire, you can even place coaxial speakers in place of components if you’d like. This type of speaker is arguably the most popular speakers on the market. Before you scroll down to our list of 6 1/2 inch coaxials, make sure you know the difference between a coaxial and component car speaker:
Component Speakers are typically a pair of tweeters and mid-bass drivers (speakers) that are matched with a crossover that limits the frequency range each speaker reproduces. You can tell if your car has components if you have more than one speaker for each channel, or if the tweeter is separate from the mid-bass driver. Usually component sets are in the front of the vehicle.
Coaxial Speakers have the tweeter, mid-bass driver and the crossover mounted together in one space saving speaker. They are very popular because they are much easier to install and don’t take up as much space as the component set. Coaxial speakers are usually found in the rear of the vehicle.
