Infinity Kappa.11i

Legendary sound

Infinity's Kappa Series 52.11i 5-1/4" speakers continue in the tradition of this legendary line of speakers, offering rugged construction and impressive sound quality. Once installed, these speakes will bring out every nuance and detail in your favorite music tracks, making time spent in your car seem more like a concert than a commute.

Large soft dome tweeters

If you're looking for natural-sounding high frequencies, Infinity uses edge-driven 1" soft dome tweeters in this system. The "edge-driven" design results in a larger tweeter that handles more power and delivers smooth response way down into midrange frequencies not covered by smaller "W"-shaped domes. You'll hear a more clearly defined soundstage where you can picture the placement of every instrument.

Infinity's UniPivot design allows you to aim each tweeter toward your ears, so you enjoy excellent stereo imaging even if the speakers are mounted way down low in your doors. Each tweeter also features a level control switch so you can boost the brightness to your taste.

Glass fiber woofer with Plus One+ technology

If you like bass, the Kappa glass fiber woofer holds its shape when the power's cranked up, so you still get punchy and defined bass. Glass fiber weighs less than traditional materials, so you don't need a ton of power to drive this woofer. Infinity's Plus One+ woofer technology extends the cone right up to the edge of the basket, giving you more surface area than with most comparable speakers. A bigger cone means more bass to complement the superior high-frequency response.

Great for any system

These 2-ohm speakers are sensitive enough that you can power them with an aftermarket stereo, but you'll get your best results feeding them plenty of power from an outboard amp — up to 55 watts RMS. Grilles are included.

Product Highlights:

  • 5-1/4" 2-way car speakers
  • Plus One+ glass-fiber woofer cone with hi-roll rubber surround
  • 1" edge-driven, soft dome tweeter
  • 2-ohm impedance
  • power range: 5-55 watts RMS (165 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 55-25,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 94 dB
  • top-mount depth: 2-3/16"
  • warranty: 3 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Why replace your car's original speakers?

The speakers that originally came in your car were made from inexpensive materials, designed to create acceptable sound at the lowest possible cost to the manufacturer. If you love music, you deserve better. Name-brand aftermarket speakers deliver fuller, richer sound with considerably more detail and nuance, and they're capable of playing louder and cleaner than factory speakers. Connect new speakers to your factory radio and you'll get the best possible sound from your dealer-equipped system. Pair them up with a new car stereo for a level of enjoyment that can rival a high-fidelity home audio experience.

Excellent choice for my Wrangler

Written By Rich, Illinois on Tuesday, November 03, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fantastic range, set crossovers at 80 to start with and then went ahead and dropped to near 50 and let it over lap with the Sub, seems to bring out more bass from the speakers and not rely on sub to produce the wider range and no distortion playing at 3/4 volume. Love these

Pros: Mounts in the sound pods without modifications and easy adaption to dash using Select Increments housings. I like the Screw terminals for speaker wires. Clear highs and no distortion at the lower frequency's.

Cons: None

mad decent

sounds great, but I had to remove the cover to mount it into the car. You will need to get wire strippers to attach the speaker wiring harness

Pros: great sound

Cons: cover blocked the mounting holes

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought these for my rear doors on my 2013 Tundra and they are power by my factory head unit. They are definitely an improvement over the cheap stock speakers. I love the clarity of them and it isn't amplified yet. Installation was very simple and I am new to installing speakers.

Pros: Great quality, durable, good clarity

Cons: Haven't found anything yet

Kind of a pain..

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

In terms of sound quality, its great! very clear highs and mids, albeit pretty poor lows, but thats what a subwoofer is for. What I had a HUGE issue with was the mounting kit provided by crutchfield! They provided a kit for my 2009 honda civic, but they failed to warn me that I would need to drill holes into the metal frame to properly mount the speakers. With the long screws provided, it needed to penetrate through the metal in order to be secure. Furthermore, the wiring kit they gave me wasn't plug and play either! I had to strip the wires because these kappa speakers don't have a +/- plug you just plug the clips into. They're more old-school and you have to screw in the wires.

Pros: Mids and highs are crisp and clear

Cons: lows are weak

Kappa 52.11i

Written By John, NE Ohio on Saturday, January 03, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First, I need to qualify this speaker install. These are being used with an Alpine CDE-W235BT CD which was purchased at a local electronics store that is narrowing their scope of business.

These were installed into a 2009 E 250 Ford van that is a work vehicle. I would also add that the same speaker, with the adapter plate will fir the rear doors, even though they are not listed as such here. Also, I found the speaker wires already back there which I routed into the back doors using a piece of speaker wire. As this is a work vehicle, there is no interior other than the front seat area.

Ok, now for the speakers themselves. They are well made and easy to fit using the enclosed mounting plate and connector supplied by Crutchfield. The speakers have screw terminals which I personally like. I cut off the end of the adapter cable and attached the wire. The tweeter can be angled to place the soundstage higher up which is good considering the speakers are about knee level in the doors. I experimented with the +3dB attenuation that can be had by the button located on the tweeter but found in a van with essentially a metal interior, it was way too much high end. I am pleased however with the overall sound of the speakers and they would no doubt do even better in a vehicle with some sound deadening and things not vibrating, but as I said, this is a work vehicle. I'm very happy with the speakers and would recommend them.

Pros: Big improvement over the stock speakers.

Cons: None in my application.

Excellent sound for these little speakers. Has great highs and mids and are really clear and have better than I expected bass. Just need to add a sub now to bring out their full potential. They fit well in my 01 Explorer Sport Trac with the bracket Crutchfield kindly sent along. is a class act!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Started buying Kappa speakers from Crutchfield 23 years ago. After reading the reviews on the 5.2ii's, decided to stick with the Kappa's. The mids and highs are so detailed and clean, it still makes me smile when listening to my new speakers. This is just the beginning of my system upgrade, planning on the 693ii,s and an Alpine PDX 4 to complete my hot rod tunes.

Pros: Detailed, clean mids and highs.

Cons: none

Cons: None

Written By Dman, 44107 on Thursday, May 01, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these speakers because of their sensitivity rating. I needed a high sensitivity rating because my car does not provide a significant amount of Watts. Even though these have a high sensitivity rating i did not recognize a big difference between the highs and lows with these speakers. I could have gotten the same amount of output for $50 speakers.

Cons: Expensive

Excellent Sound!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I ordered two sets of these while on sale to replace the factory speakers in a 2013 Honda Fit Sport. They are well built, high quality speakers. Screw in terminals add a nice touch. The tweeter can be turned so that it faces up if installed low in the doors. The tweeter can also be enhanced by three Db with the press of a button. Installation in the Fit is a bit of a pain since you have to remove the entire door panel to replace the speaker. I really wish the car makers would just have removable speaker grills for easy access, Plastic connectors are easy to break and you will end up running to the dealer to get replacements. I replaced the front two speakers and both fired up fine. I replaced one of the rear speakers and there was no sound. Odd. I reseated the speaker wire, still no sound. I then connected the other Infinity speaker that came in the set, and it worked. To double-check, I connected the factory speaker and it worked. Bad speaker. Called Crutchfield and they immediately sent a new set out that same afternoon! Fantastic customer service. I need to return the defective speaker as well as one of the good ones in the set within 14 days to not be charged. The speakers that came with the Fit actually sound pretty good. These Kappas blow them away. Much clearer sound. Great highs. Great mid-range. Bass is ok for such a small speaker. Improved detail. Highly recommended.

Pros: Great sound and build quality. Screw terminals.

Cons: None

I am very pleased with the quality of sound for the price. I updated the speakers in my corvette with the stock Bose head unit. The improvement was immediately noticeable. The sound is much fuller than the stock units.

Pros: Sound quality and price.

Very nice speakers!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought these speakers as an upgrade to recommended speakers after comparing reviews on Crutchfield. Had them installed in the shelf behind the fronts seats of my 1987 Mercedes 560SL. Installer thought they sounded great and so do I. I wanted them primarily for listening with the top down on my roadster, but they really improved sound with the hard top on also.

Pros: Crisp sound with decent bass and great volume.

Cons: None noted!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these because my front stock speakers were, well.. horrible. I chose these speakers due to the fact they fit according to Crutchfield's site car recommendation that it will fit my Jeep. So i took a dive and chose them as infinity's were a great pair of speakers. I was shocked that i actually had highs clear mids im not talking bassy just clear. :)

Pros: everything :D

Cons: who could hate them?

Great Sound From A Small Speaker

Written By Rob K, South Jersey on Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This was my first purchase from Crutchfield. Great Packaging with the speakers, came with the mounting adapters and hardware which really make the install alot cleaner and easier for sure. The stock infinity speakers in the dodge dakota were blown, these are an excellent upgrade , they sound real crisp and clean off the stock head unit, I imagine they would be even better amplified but I'm definitely happy the way they are now. Would definitely recommend and buy from Crutchfield in the future.

Pros: Sound Great, Installed Easily

Cons: None!

Compared to the stock speakers this is a great improvement. Using with stock radio sounds really clear. Did a little research and I think the sensitivity of 94 dB was the key. Went right in to the stock sound bar with free wiring adapters.

Pros: Easy installation and great sound

Cons: None

These were the last piece of my total upgrade for my sound system. All I can say is totally worth it! Pack a good punch coming from the side in my doors.

Pros: Terminal connectors are a big plus. They were also packaged very well.

Cons: Dont know how I feel about having plastic connections to attach the speaker to the door but from using the previous generation of kappa's I feel it is an upgrade from having the screw practically into the rubber of the speaker.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

delivery and packaging were flawless...these Infinity speakers are very solid, and deserve no complaints...installation went very smooth in rear doors of 2004 C240 Benz Wagon...i gutted and re-used the factory housings (not those free ones, thanks anyway Crutchfield) after a few minutes with a utility knife and dremmel tool, no new holes, and very solid...note Benz is Brown = (+)Positive, and Pink = (-)Ground...Sound is what you should expect from Infinity, very clean mids, and bright highs, with better than expected lows...rotatable tweeters allowed upright alignment of the handy screw-down terminals without compromising their aim gently upwards into cabin...nice design ideas, thanks Infinity! Highly recommended.

Pros: Very solidly built, with high quality components throughout, resulting in good punch and clarity, handy screw-down terminals, rotatable tweeters, thoughtful assortment of fastener hardware, moderate price.

Cons: none found

Infinity Kappa 52.11i ...easy install.. awesome sound ... the speaker covers do work with these speakers, you do not have to use the stock covers unless you want to hide what you have in your Jeep, Perfect fit.. installed in less than 30 min with the hardware Crutchfield send for the install... couldn't be happier with these speakers... they sound great even with the stock head unit, cannot wait to get a new head unit to really let these speakers come alive.

Pros: speaker covers do work with these speakers, you do not have to use the stock covers , easy to install..sound great. Screw wiring terminals on the back of the speaker.

Cons: cannot think of any reason anyone wouldnt want to have these in their Jeep Wrangler..

Product Research


Plus One Woofer Cones: The Plus One speaker cones offer more surface area than other speakers that fit in the same size opening. This is accomplished by using a new basket design and hi-roll surround. The result is greater bass output and a significant increase in efficiency.

Formed Glass Fiber Woofer Cones: The formed glass fiber cone material is very light and extremely stiff, minimizing flex. This results in very low distortion and improved clarity.

iCGM frames: The Kappa series speaker baskets are made of composite Injected Carbon Glass Matrix (iCGM). iCGM is lighter and stronger than stamped steel; it retains its shape, even when mounted on uneven surfaces (common in car mounting locations), plus offers exceptional damping of any resonances.

Edge Driven Dome Tweeters: Each speaker has a 1" Edge-driven textile soft dome tweeter. An edge-driven tweeter has better dispersion characteristics and allows for a lower crossover frequency than typical tweeters of the same size, which improves imaging. The result is improved vocals and musical clarity. The tweeter also has an adjustable output level, +0 dB (flat) and +3 dB.

UniPivot Tweeter: The tweeter is angled and can be rotated about 315° after installation. This allows you to direct the tweeters toward the listeners, very useful for speakers mounted low in a door.

High-Output Design: The high output 2-ohm voice coil design compensates for the high in-line resistance of small gauge factory wiring and extracts every watt from factory receivers, increasing overall system output and efficiency (relative to 4 ohm speakers). The speaker's 2.0-ohm impedance combined with the impedance of your speaker wire provides a true 4-ohm load to your connected headunit or amplifier. The speakers also benefit from increased power when you upgrade the wire and add aftermarket amplifiers, designed to power a 2-ohm load.

Terminals: The input terminals are gold-plated set screws that will accept up to 12 gauge bare wire.

Power Handling: Although Infinity lists the RMS power handling as 55 watts, they also list the recommended power range as 5-75 watts RMS. We've opted to list the more conservative 55 watt RMS figure on the specifications page.
