Representing MB Quart’s Formula series line, these 2-way speakers are sure to please your ears with melodic sound. Rated at 40 watts of RMS power, the FKS 116 speakers produce tunes that are well balanced and realistic sounding.

In terms of durability, the FKS 116 speakers are fashioned with butyl rubber surrounds to help the speakers endure harsh elements. Along with the durable cone materials, you can be assured that these speakers will provide top quality tunes for many years. The protective grill protects the cone from damage. Titanium dome tweeters are mounted on the center of the cone. These tweeters will bring precision and clarity to your car stereo system.

These speakers will fit in vehicles with 6-1/2” mounting holes. You simply remove the factory speakers and then wire and screw these speakers into place. These 4 Ohm coaxial speakers will immediately be a step up from your factory speakers. The FKS 116’s performance certainly lives up to the MB Quart brand’s reputation and is sure to satisfy even the pickiest of audiophiles.


Blaupunkt PCxb652 6-1/2” Speakers

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!
