Mille LEGEND Series 6-1/2″ Component Speaker System
About the Hertz MLK 165.3
The stuff of LEGEND Hertz MLK 165.3
Is it possible to have flawless sound in a car? With their Mille LEGEND Series MLK 165.3 component speaker system, Hertz aims to accomplish this. This set of two woofers, two tweeters, and two flexible external crossovers prioritizes quality sound by using the most advanced technologies and materials available from Hertz.
Premium Hertz Technology
An aluminum alloy speaker basket with built-in venting serves as a strong, smart base for the 6-1/2″ woofer’s impressive efficiency. Hertz uses a “Boundary Free” rubber surround for its improved pressed pulp and cotton fiber woofer to transfer more air with greater precision. The woofer’s V-cone configuration increases dispersion and contributes to audible lows. Superior damping is also important to the sound of these speakers — reduced resonance decreases distortion for a more true-to-life sound powered by up to 150 watts RMS of power.
This crossover system’s premium components add to the woofer’s impressive low-frequency response and a seamless transition to the breathtaking work of the Tetolon dome tweeter. Hertz’s deluxe external crossover system includes useful features such as tweeter level adjustment and “Hi-Contour” adjustment, which helps you to pick the tweeter’s high-pass crossover point based on the tweeter distance and positioning.
The Hertz Philosophy
Hertz believes that a good speaker should reveal the emotional power of the music you love. That’s a high bar, but with their commitment to using premium components and boundary-pushing design, they’re more than up to challenge. Comprised of music lovers, Hertz is committed to optimizing your car’s sound system for total audio enjoyment.

This Product Features
Boundary Free Surround: higher cone surface area technology- allowing the ability to move more air. Thermal and mechanical linearity is assured due to the surrounds fabricated with butyl rubber.
Klippel Verified: The Klippel distortion analyzer, a device that uses a laser and computer software to do a large-scale analysis of drivers in motion. The KDA helps Hertz optimize the speaker’s motor composition, voice coil alignment, and suspension to yield the stablest possible execution.
Tweeter Mounting: The ML 28.3 tweeters are designed to flush mount using the included clamps. They can also be mounted to many factory tweeter brackets using the M3 threaded insert on the back of the tweeter housing. The tweeters are permanently mounted in their housings.
Tweeter Level: Three different positive wire terminals offer tweeter output level options, -2 dB, 0 dB, and +2 dB. Hertz recommends +2 dB when the tweeters are mounted off-axis (relative to the listeners) and 0 dB when the tweeters are mounted on-axis.
Hi-Contour: A 2-position switch in each crossover adjusts the tweeter output contour, and thus the crossover point. Hertz recommends the 3.5 kHz (On) setting when the tweeters are mounted off-axis and the 4 kHz (Off) setting when the tweeters are mounted on-axis.
Slope: The slope of the high-pass and low-pass outputs is 12 dB/octave.
Wiring: The crossover inputs and outputs are screw terminals and will accept bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.3″ wide.
