Our take on the Kenwood KFC-1365S

by Alexander Hrabe
Kenwood

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.


5.25" coaxials

Upgrade on a budget

So, you're finally ready to do something about your ragged factory speakers. The beauty of Kenwood's Sport Series speakers is that you can seriously improve your sound without breaking the bank.

Sweet sound

The KFC-1365S 5-1/4 " 2-way speakers feature polypropylene woofer cones that will enrich your music with all the midbass and midrange details, while the 1" balanced-dome tweeters will make high notes soar. Kenwood also includes sharp-looking grilles in case you're doing a custom installation in your vehicle. Finally, you can enjoy your music the way it was meant to be heard, with clarity and emotion.

SPeakers for Volvo

Written By JoeD, Belmont, MA on Tuesday, July 15, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Needed speakers for an old 1994 Volvo. Crutchfield very good at finding speakers that fit well, easy to install, and at a good price point given the age of the car and abuse my kids would contribute. BIg Box store had installed other name brand speakers in the front, and I saw it was not to challenging, and installed easily. And the speakers at near the same price point sound much better than the fronts. Might actually replace the fronts also if the car doesn;'t disintegrate first (300K miles and going strong)
Pros:
Easy to install, good fit, good value.
Cons:
Might be the last thing left standing in the car. If anyone is looking for a couple of doors with speakers for a 94 Volvo wagon.....

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Used these to replace the factory installs on my 04 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. This was my first car audio replacement on my own and it couldn't have been easier. The speakers fit everything perfectly and sound so much better than the old factory ones. FYI I also used Kenwood KFC-1065S for the other speakers in my Jeep and switched the receiver out for Kenwood Excelon KDC-X597.
Pros:
Great sound for great price Easy drop-in relacement

Replaced the blown door speakers in my 92 cherokee. Cant go wrong for the price. Very good sound quality and decent bass for a 5 1/4". Only downside is the speaker isnt super loud so you need to turn up the radio a little more. Overall very pleased with my purchase. Thanks to Crutchfield for the free radio install kit and shipping.
Pros:
Cheap. Good sound quality.
Cons:
A little weak so it needs to be turned up more.

These speakers are great for the price. I was a little skeptical of them because the are so cheap but I was blown away. When you first plug them in and get them set up the are a little crackley but once you get the headunit settings tuned in they sound great. I put them in my front and rear doors then I put a bazooka bta850fh bass tube in the trunk and with that extra bass boost they sound amazing.
Pros:
Easy to set up and easy to install

Good Sound, Perfect Fit

Written By Cheesehead, Pago Pago, American Samoa on Monday, April 28, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Good sound, easy installation in existing 1997 Honda Accord OEM speaker shroud/bracket.
Pros:
Great fit in OEM speaker shroud/bracket.
Cons:
Supplied screws were too long for OEM speaker shroud/bracket. OEM speaker 3 screws vs. 4 screws for Kenwood, so I used #8 X 1/2" sheet metal screws. Crutchfield-supplied speaker wiring harness too long, zip-tied the excess so it wouldn't interfere with fully rolled down window.

Speaker review

Written By Emmmett, Raleigh, NC on Wednesday, April 23, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Bought the speaker to replace a blown stock speaker. Unfortunately the stock configuration was for component speakers so the 2-way speaker provided far to much high end. Speaker sounded fine but had too strong of highs for my application. I replaced it with a component pair minus the tweeters and order is restored to the universe.

Impressive Deal.

Written By RG, Lebanon County, PA on Wednesday, April 16, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought these to replace 2 front door speakers in a 2005 GMC Sierra. The speakers were blown out when I got the truck. When I chose these Kenwood KFC-1365S speakers from Crutchfield as replacements, I noticed that they had a repacked pair for sale, possibly a return for a lower price. After thinking it over, I decided that a deal is a deal and it was worth a try. I was not disappointed. The speakers sound new, look new and work like new. Installation was very simple. On this particular truck, there was one extra bolt that wasn't on the installation sheet that needed to be removed to get the door panel off, but it was easy to spot behind the inside door handle. I had both speakers in and the door panels back on in about an hour. There were speaker clips in the package, but for this door installation, where the speakers would be front loaded, I only needed to screw the speakers to the front of the bracket, use the wiring harness to connect the speaker and wire and snap the bracket into place.

Replacement for e39 deck speakers not recommended

Written By e39 Owner, North Carolina on Saturday, February 22, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought these to replace the stock deck speakers in a 2000 BMW 540i (e39). After the installation, I found them to be very flat with almost no low end whatsoever, so I put my 14-year old stock speakers back in since they sounded much better. Crutchfield accepted my request to return them and sent me a pre-paid UPS return shipping slip. While I did not like the speakers, Crutchfield customer support remains excellent as always. Note that the Master Sheet for an e39 for these speakers says you just need to pop off the speaker grills to replace them. This is not the case. You need to remove the back seat and deck to replace the speakers.
Pros:
Drop-in replacement, excellent customer service
Cons:
Poor sound quality, flat with not much low-end at all.
