The Rockford Fosgate R1653 is a single 6.50”, 3-way speaker released as an upgrade from the R1652-S. It itself offers the same power output (40W RMS, 80W MAX) as the two 6.5” speakers in the R1652-S model. Featured is a large 6.5” mica injected polypropylene cone woofers, .5” Myler balanced dome tweeter, and an advanced tweeter high-pass crossover network. The frequency response has also been improved, as it now ranges between 48Hz and 22kHz. Critics say that though the Rockford Fosgate R1653 isn’t a premium speaker, it does provide subwoofer-like bass down to about 50Hz.
