Our take on the Rockford Fosgate T2652-S

Bold design. Innovative use of materials. Pure, muscular sound. These are the hallmarks of a Rockford Fosgate speaker, and exactly what you'll find with the T2652-S component system.

As always, Rockford Fosgate hits hard

Bold design. Innovative use of materials. Pure, muscular sound. These are the hallmarks of a Rockford Fosgate speaker, and exactly what you'll find with the T2652-S component system.

Each 6-1/2" woofer sports a carbon fiber/polypropylene injection molded cone for stunning accuracy and powerful impact. The 1" tweeter offers the extended high-frequency response that only an aluminum dome can deliver, and several mounting possibilities give you plenty of options to dial in the high end. Rockford Fosgate's versatile external crossover also lets you bi-amp these components to deliver more power to your woofers and tweeters for enhanced performance.

Phase plug

The aluminum phase plug gives some T2652-S woofer some bling (and better sound dispersion).

Tweaks for the connoisseur

Rockford Fosgate knows a good thing when they've created it. You'll find their impressive VAST technology at work here, which uses the butyl rubber surround to increase the woofer cone area by 25% for better bass response. Rounding out the robust, polished look, Rockford has incorporated a billet aluminum woofer phase plug to enhance cooling, sound dispersion and . . . well, to just look awesome.

An easier install

Every installation poses little challenges along the way, and Rockford Fosgate has equipped the T2652-S system with some useful features to help. The woofers feature a slot mounted frame pattern to fit a wider array of factory screwholes in your car door. If speaker mount fabrication is a requirement in your car, Rockford Fosgate makes that job a little easier with the included Multi-OEM Adapter plate for woofers and their Discreet Dual Clamp design for tweeters. Grilles are also included for custom installation.

Installation note: You'll need a pair of our to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

Amazing speakers. Would definitely buy again. The tweeters are high at first but if you got a decent system this isn't a problem with the crossover and amp




Sounds great and was a super easy installation with the instructions provided.




Great set my my 07 Silverado. Perfect Fit and it sounds great.




I was amazed how quickly my speakers arrived. When I opened the box, i was pleased to see how well it was packaged. I haven't installed the speakers yet, but I have heard them at a car show and that is what sold me. I'm sure once installed, the speakers will sound and look great. Thanks Crutchfield.




These components will blow you away. Super loud and clear. I got my old school punch 300.2 amp pushing a set of these for front stage. Has strong mid bass. Tweets were ear piercing so I set mine to 0db.




This is my third set of these. Great speaker but magnet is strong so be sure that you have some space behind it so it does not get stuck to something it does not need to.

Pros: Well built and great sound



Amazing, super clear tweeters- hard hitting mids.......teamed up with rockford t400 amp, 8" underseat woofer, ad rockford dsr1 processor. !6' civic is "Loud n Proud"




Very impressed with the performance of this set. I would recommend them for sure.

Pros: Can handle power.

Cons: None.


Excellent Sound! Great power handling capability and extraordinarily clear sound. The tweeters can get a bit "sizzly" at times but that can easily be eq'd out. Give them at least a couple weeks to break in, then they truly sound amazing!

Pros: Clean sound, power handling, quality

Cons: None


Great sound

Pros: Small size big sound



Had them install today 12 Feb 2016 it is a significant difference from my stock front door speaker only problem was I didn't do my research to find out that I need an amp to get some power out of those puppies :-( even with stock wiring I can hear a major difference in my vehicle definitely must buy!

Pros: A major difference in the stock speakers sound vs rockford fosgate speakers

Cons: needs an amplifier to power up the speaker


They sound amazing definitely a great speaker would buy again.




Sounds like a different car... outstanding

Product Research



Injection-Molded Woofers: The woofer cones are injection-molded carbon fiber filled polypropylene. This molding process assures a uniform cone thickness for superior linearity and clarity. It is also light weight and rigid for decreased distortion and improved bass response.

Rubber Surrounds: The rubber surrounds dampen unwanted harmonic distortion while maintaining linear geometry under extreme weather conditions. This leads to less distortion, superior frequency response, and superior durability.

Phase Plug: Each woofer's billet aluminum phase plug enhances voice coil cooling.

VAST Surround: The Vertical Attach Surround Technique (VAST) increases a speaker's effective radiating cone area without increasing the size of the basket.

FlexFit: The Flex Fit frame utilizes slots (where possible) instead of single screw sized holes; allowing slight adjustment of the speaker when mounted.

Klippel Verified: The Klippel distortion analyzer, a device that uses a laser and sophisticated software to do large-scale analysis of drivers in motion, lets Rockford Fosgate optimize the speaker's motor structure, voice coil alignment, and suspension to yield the best possible performance.

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

Multi-OEM Adapter: For mounting flexibility, the included brackets allow installation in 6x9 applications. When using the brackets the mounting height is 0.611" and the depth is 2.344" (top mount).

Note: The bracket is generic (cutout sized for a 5-1/4) and requires modification before the T2652-S will fit into it.


Tweeters: The tweeters are 1" aluminum domes offering outstanding dispersion and clarity.

Mounting: The tweeters have multiple mounting configurations; choose flush or surface mount. The Discreet Dual Clamp (DDC) flush mount system provides concentric clamping pressure around the perimeter of the opening. The surface mount housing can be positioned at two angles, approximately 15° or 30° angle. Depending on the mount used, the installed dimensions are:

FlushSurface 15°Surface 30°
Mounting Height 0.4" 1.043" 1.342"
Mounting Depth0.903"Screw DepthScrew Depth
Frame Diameter2.355"N/AN/A
Cutout Diameter1.75"N/AN/A
Frame WidthN/A2.141"2.141"
Frame DepthN/A2.160"2.155"

Tweeter Level: A switch on each crossover allows you to adjust the output level of the tweeters; -2 dB, 0 dB, or +2 dB.

Tweeter Axis: Another switch on each crossover adjusts the tweeter output for on axis or off axis placement.


Specifications: The crossover slope is 18 dB/octave high pass and 12 dB/octave low pass. The crossover point for both is 3 kHz.

Bi-amp: The crossovers have discrete inputs for the woofer and tweeter, along with a bi-amp on/off switch, so each component can be powered by an individual amplifier channel. (When using only two amplifier channels, leave the bi-amp switch off and use the tweeter inputs.)

Wiring: The crossover inputs and outputs are set screw clamps; they will accept bare wire up to 10-gauge.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Width: 4-5/8"
  • Height: 1-3/8"
  • Depth: 4-5/8"

yes you can put that much power to them if you want but I am using a 300 watt amp to power them,150 each, and it is plenty loud enough and they perform splendidly. [ Austin Apr 26, 2018 ]
No [ Javier Apr 25, 2018 ]
As long as you apply as close as possible to the rms wattage to the woofer and tweeter should be ok!!! [ JOSE A Apr 25, 2018 ]
I have 90 watts from an Alpine amp running into the crossover and these speakers sound wonderful with more than enough volume. I can't see any application where you would need much more. Just my 2 cents! [ Warren Apr 25, 2018 ]
Only 100 watts. [ JEFFREY Apr 25, 2018 ]
No. The only way you can give it that much power is if you bi amp or go active. [ Christopher Apr 25, 2018 ]
I'm using a Pioneer 50 watt per channel amp and it's sufficient for me. I like crisp and clear in my car not for the car next to me. I can tell you to achieve solid bass get a sub. I used a Fosgate 8" self powered. I should have got the 10. [ Joseph Apr 24, 2018 ]
I can't locate the manual. I'm using a Kenwood KAC-648S 25 per channel. I can turn it up all the way and no distortion at all. Loud and clear. I'm sorry I couldn't help more. [ Joseph Mar 26, 2017 ]
Its 100 watts for 1 woofer. [ jimmy Mar 25, 2017 ]
You can send 100 watts RMS to each side no problem! Mine are getting about 90 each and handle it with ease. [ Warren Mar 25, 2017 ]
It's 100 watts rms per side. Meaning 100watts rms for woofer+tweeter [ francisco Mar 25, 2017 ]
100 watts RMS each speaker [ Glenn Mar 25, 2017 ]
I push 100 watts rms to each side and they sound amazing. [ layton t. Mar 25, 2017 ]
