Kenwood designed their KFC-1652MRW marine speakers to sound great and stand up to life on the water. The balanced-dome tweeter is built into the speaker grille and not in the middle of the woofer cone, so the water-resistant polypropylene woofer delivers extra-strong bass. The white speaker grilles resist damage from the sun's rays so they won't change color in one summer.

With these Kenwood marine speakers, you'll be able to enjoy your music over the background noise of wind and water. Pair them up with a new Kenwood marine receiver, and you'll hear a big difference in your boat's sound system

Features

Woofers: The Kenwood KFC-1652MRW features a waterproof polypropylene woofer cone with a synthetic rubber surround.

Tweeters: The 1" balanced dome PEI (Poly-Ether Imide) tweeters are mounted in the bolt-through, non-removable grille. A semi-dome tweeter has a dome placed inside a cone. Balanced dome tweeters are semi-dome tweeters with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the tweeter.

Grille and Frame: The fixed grille and frame are UV resistant ABS plastic.

Terminals: The wiring attaches to recessed male quick slide terminals (0.25" and 0.187"). Neither quick slide connectors nor wire is included with the speakers.

Kenwood KFC-1652MRW

Written By Miller, Olive Branch Ms on Saturday, June 15, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sound much better than the Dual speakers i had

Cons: Speakers are 1/4" smaller than the same size old speakers and had to build backing plates for mounting

Get everything you’ll need to enjoy your new Kenwood KFC-1652MRW

Designed for marine installations, the tinned copper wire is fully fire-rated for concealed installations.
Keep your speakers clean and dry. They compress to fit behind your speakers.
Reduce ambient noise and your boat's "rattles," for better sound inside.
The right tools will help keep your installation simple and clean.
