A component speaker
is a car audio speaker
matched for optimal sound quality. Typically a pair of tweeters
drivers are matched with a crossover
to limit the frequency
range each speaker must accurately reproduce. Component speakers drivers are physically separated so the tweeter, which is very directional, can be placed in an optimal position, usually on the dash facing the listener, while the larger mid-bass driver can be placed where there is room, often in the lower front of the car doors. Component speaker pairs are offered by all of the high-end audio manufacturers.
