The Blaupunkt company has been a leading innovator in car audio components for over 80 years. They continually strive to provide great products at affordable prices. And dollar for dollar, you won’t find a better deal than the Blaupunkt PCxb652 6-1/2” 2-way car speakers. These speakers are an affordable way to upgrade your stock system. Now you can upgrade their car audio system without breaking the bank. Categorized in the Blaupunkt ProComponent line, these speakers are designed with polymer injected cone cones for enhanced volume production. They are also fashioned with a foam surround to sustain peak performance for years to come.
Despite their small size, these speakers can handled up to 50 watts of continuous power. While the bass response won’t exactly blow you away, these speakers provide just enough bass to create a realistic sound. Considering the price, the 91 dB sensitivity rating is very impressive. These Blaupunkt speakers will provide clear tuned highs and mids. In fact, these speakers have built-in 1” semi-dome tweeters, which is why they can emit clearly defined high notes. Altogether, these speakers provide an all-around, well balanced sound.
If you are looking to power one pair of these speakers, you will likely want to use a 2-channel amp or bridge a 4-channel amplifier that will provide 35-50 watts of continuous power per channel (each speaker). If you only use your aftermarket head unit to power them, the result will still sound better than your factory setup, but you will experience suboptimal performance. Speaking of which, replacing your factory speakers with the PCxb652 speakers is made easier with the special multi-hole mounting system. This simplifies the install since it is easy to line it up these speakers with the old holes used by the factory speakers. Consider that the install itself is easy enough and the price is as low as it is, these speakers are a steal of a deal!
