Review

Infinity seems to have achieved a great balance between effectiveness, quality, and pricing with the REF3022CFX. The tweeter output level on these speakers – as on other best 3.5″ speakers – can be adjusted between 0 and +3 dB, meaning that regardless of the speakers’ location, you can easily optimize the output to your liking.

The installation process is pretty simple. However, you have to take into consideration that there may be some modifications needed for the REF3022CFX to fit perfectly in your car.

You’ll notice a huge difference between these 3.5-inch speakers and your previous ones almost instantaneously. As long as the volume is kept at a reasonable level, you should experience no unwanted noise or distortion whatsoever.

Please note that if these speakers aren’t installed properly, the vocals can become pretty harsh. It’s advised to hire a professional to install these speakers.

Also, if your stereo system isn’t able to supply enough power to these speakers, you won’t really experience their full potential, so it’s a good idea to use them in conjunction with an outboard amplifier.

The Infinity REF3022CFX features a Plus One woofer cone, meaning that the cones are a little larger than the usual size of this range of speakers. As a result, the low-frequency range output is increased and the sensitivity value is boosted to deliver great sound quality.

To get more power out of your system, Infinity has designed these speakers in such a way that allows them to combine with the speaker wire in your vehicle. This allows your stereo system to see this as a 4-ohm impedance configuration.

All things considered, this is truly a fantastic pair of speakers that combine great aesthetics with powerful performance that will help bring life to your audio experience without breaking the bank.
