Affordable upgrade

Kenwood's KFC-6965S 6"x9" speakers are designed to increase your car's sound quality without decreasing your bank roll. Install these budget-friendly speakers in place of your factory 6"x9" speakers, and their 3-way design will open a wide soundstage for all your tunes. Their high efficiency also lets them work effortlessly with your stock or aftermarket radio power. With 45 watts of RMS power handling, you can even add an amp for a bigger sound.

Tough and responsive

Kenwood uses a durable polypropylene woofer with a treated cloth surround, so the KFC-6965S speaker keeps pumping out the bass even through the harsh conditions in a car. Add a 2" PEI cone tweeter and a 1/2" ceramic supertweeter to the mix, and you'll get a smooth transition between your music's highs and lows. Grilles are included, so you can also use these speakers in a custom installation.

Was looking for a good stock replacement and found it. These speakers sound way better then the stock ones-what an improvement. You can't go wrong and thank you Crutchfield

Kenwood KFC-6965S Pretty Good

Written by: C-Dog from Encinitas, CA on April 25, 2016

2016 Toyota Tacoma

I replaced my stock speakers in my Toyota Tacoma 2016 SR5 with these babies. Overall, they are a great value and pretty good speakers. The stock head unit/stereo definitely sounds a lot better, but it still lacks the richness of a deluxe sound system. I do not know if this is a result of me not also installing an amp or not.... so they could be 5 stars with an amp... I just don't know. The stock speakers were super-cheap, sounded flat, etc. These were worth the money.

Pros:

Cons:

Pros: Great sound, easy installation

Cons: 1 mounting screw on each door wasn't long enough with the new speakers. They were only held in by 3 out of 4 until I could find the correct length hardware.

While these might not be the highest rated or have the SNOB appeal of more expensive brands, they are nonetheless a very good, inexpensive upgrade to your old factory speakers. Very easy to install(especially with Crutchfield's install kits) and an immediate improvement in sound quality with my factory radio.

Pros: Easy to install, good value.

Cons: None, really

1998 Honda Civic
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Got a pair of these for the rear decks in my '98 civic sedan, and a pair of the kfc 1665s' for the front panels and they sound ridiculous. The highs are a LITTLE harsh for my personal taste but literally just turn them down on your stereo eq n youre mint. The bass is darn good, if youre running head unit power you gotta give em some volume to really get the full effect but if we're talkin hiphop, edm, bass heavy, these things bang with clarity n no distortion.

Pros: Great sound for the price range

Cons: Highs sorta harsh but easily fixed

I recently purchased these speakers for my 2011 Grand Cherokee. I am not happy with the sound quality. I think that they honestly are worse than stock. They seem to hit the highs very well, but when there are a lot of sounds going on, they seem to miss some of them. I think that my stock speakers sounded better than these ones do.

Fantastic value. I have a pair of these amped at 50W RMS each. Sound is great. Zero distortion and great sound quality. You need to add some power to these for best results.

Pros: When amped they sound fantastic. Easy install.

Cons: Had one DOA and was in the middle of the install. Had my car all ripped apart. Crutchfield sent me a new pair in less than 48 hours. Delivered on a Saturday. That was a lifesaver.

Great Value & Fit for 2004 Corolla

Written by: Steve from California on April 28, 2015

2004 Toyota Corolla
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased these with the Toyota wire harness (also from Crutchfield) to replace the stock 6x9 speakers in my 2004 Corolla. After removing the stock speakers, it probably only took me 30 minutes to get the new speakers installed. I cut out the speaker template included on the back of the new speaker box, crawled into the trunk and placed the template underneath the rear dash, and marked the 4 holes with a permanent marker. I then used a 13/64" drill bit and drilled out the 8 holes (4 for each speaker) and used the stock 10mm bolts from the stock Toyota speakers to secure the new speakers into place. Although I was unable to get all 4 bolts aligned, I made sure that the 2-3 bolts I had securing each speaker were tight enough to keep the speakers from getting lose. I drilled out the holes from underneath (by crawling into the trunk) because I knew I wouldn't be able to get the drill in position with the obstruction of the rear windshield slant. The wire harness made the speaker connections extremely easy, no soldering required. Just "plug and play." Although the sound quality isn't super great, I suspect that it may be because I'm still running the stock Corolla stereo head unit. I'm planning on replacing that head unit soon and I will update this review if the sound improves.

Pros: Easy install, especially if you buy the wire harness for you car.

Cons: Scores included with these speakers for mounting are a complete joke and impossible to use. The instructions also don't specify what size drill bit to use in order to utilize the included flimsy screws. It was just trial and error until I decided to just use the stock hex bolts from my car's stock 6x9s.

Paired with a new Sony reiever and they sound great together. Plenty of bass, midrange is a bit weak but adjusting the EQ on the receiver compensates nicely. Great sound at a reasonable price.

Pros: Impressive sound for the price. Came with all parts needed for installation.

Cons:

These speakers hit their target

Written by: Fred from Pennsylvania on March 19, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Haven't had enought time to tune the system to perfection but so far the speakers have solid bass and good highs, the mids are where they sound a bit muffled in the area that I imagine some step up speakers may perform better in. The metal male connections are super thin metal and I bent one tryin to push on a female connecter that was too small. Just seems like a low quality area but managed to make it work.

Pros: Good bass. More than adequate for factory upgrade

Cons: Questionable materials, poor mid response

Good speakers for the money. Took advantage of $50 discount for buying a Kenwood car radio with the front and rear speakers. They are good alternatives to the factory speakers that I had. If you want bass, look elsewhere but, if you listen to music at normal volumes, these will be just fine for you.

Pros: Good price, excellent fit.

Cons: Don't expect the best sound quality. They are good for the money.

bad sound quality

Written by: Dan the sound man from alabama on February 4, 2015

I got these know they were cheap but with all the freebies were a good deal. I have them on a 60watt rms sony amp I set the gain with an O scope to not clip the speakers, high pass filter on and they sound muddy. I had to take all the mid level "1k" out just to hear the highs "12.5k" the bass was ok without the filter on, not deep! it's centered around 80h. its more of a mid bass. I'll say better than factory but not much. I'll be getting something better as my bank roll gets fatter but for now they'll have to do.

Pros: a good deal with the free Crutchfield stuff.

Cons: everything about them

I replaced the factory rear deck speakers in my 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GT with these. They made a big difference in the sound of the stock radio / CD player. I could pull out the mids and highs, and they have just the right bass punch. They sounded so good I bought the Kenwood 5 1/2" companion speakers for the front doors. AWESOME !

Pros: Easy peasy install with included Master Sheet. Took me all of 2 hours.

Cons: That I waited so long to do this.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Anticipated long day of creating mounting bracket. Pleasantly surprised, it took about 1 hour disassemble, drill holes, reassemble rear deck on Corolla. Installation was a snap. Speakers put out good sound, plenty of power but were not designed to deafen the neighborhood! Not meant for thumping your chest (and I wasn't looking for that), but great for pop/alternative at a comfortable volume.

Pros: Easy installation, good price, good sound

Cons: Not meant for high volume/low bass (which was fine for my taste)

Super Efficient

Written by: Audio Honcho from Pacifica, Ca on September 10, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Driven by a Naka NA780 I have 4 of these installed in a 2014 Patriot in the doors. A huge leap over the dual cone factory setup. Bass is pretty decent and they thump with anything in their class. Tiny magnets mean efficiency and low power demands. No need to hook up an amp as they would perform well even with a stock radio. If you want to connect an amp get Sony Explodes. Usually marketed as a 4pk. Crutchfield sells them as a pair and therefore double what you would find them for elsewhere. Not by any means a value oriented speaker. You get what you pay for and these are a prime example.

Pros: Dirt Cheap Price Efficient Better than anticipated bass response.

Cons: I paid too much and would have got them cheaper elsewhere.

Got these two days ago for my gas saver a 1999 Civic. I'm really impressed! I've had alpine and a few other nice brands but wasn't expecting much out of these. I bought these with a kenwood dpx300u and got the KFC 61/2s along with the KFC 6/9s for right at $200 because of a $50.00 off deal. The 6x9s alone are awesome. Don't over look these because of the low price. They work great plenty of clarity and mid bass.

Pros: Great sound! Suprising bass!

Cons: None

OK value

Written by: Chris B from Little Rock, AR on August 13, 2014

2011 Toyota Corolla
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First, this is probably not a fair review because my home reference speakers are Bowers and Wilkins bookshelfs arranged into a surround arrangement with a sub, and that system makes me like music I usually hate. However, on the other hand, these speakers went into a Toyota Corolla with one of the worst stock systems I've ever heard or imagined, so the bar was low! The factory speakers were literally paper and plastic with magnets the size of a $2 stack of quarters. I yanked those out and put them in the garbage, and also installed a Kenwood head unit to replace the pathetic 20W stock cd player. Signal is good! It's a world better now, but I now wonder if I should have spent more. These speakers were definitely designed to go with a sub, so in a sub-less 4-speaker system like mine I set the EQ flat and put the dreaded "loudness" on level one. I might experiment more, but the point is they're not perfectly balanced out of the box. More concerning, I just don't feel the sharp (but not too bright) crispness I like from my reference speakers. These speakers seem biased toward emphasizing stringy sounds like guitars, violins, and harmonicas. That said, they're strong on classical music.

Pros: -with the connector supplied by Crutchfield, wiring is easy and foolproof. -covers are not juvenile-looking like so many others.

Cons: -lacks crispness, yet on flat EQ the treble is too high. Compensate for the treble with a sub, EQ settings, loudness, or bass boost. Compensate for the crispness by spending $100 per speaker next time. -no anti-rattle foam along the mounting surface. -no anti-road-noise foam long the front (used weatherstripping after I realized how much louder the road noise was after installing these. That fixed it.).

The install was a little tight as there an extra little edge around the speakers compared to my Mopar factory units, but not enough to require any trimming. Overall I would highly recommend these to anyone with factory units.

Pros: Very easy install

Cons:

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I put these in my 2008 Tacoma front doors and replaced the factory speakers. Matched them up with a Kenwood deck and they totally blew my mind. Jazz Blues, Rock, Piano music, you name it is like you are right there live. My Son remarked it sounded as good as most home stereo systems. Very pleased and the mounting adapters from Crutchfield made it a breeze.

Pros: Sound, Bass, Mids, High end overall balance

Cons: Should have done this a long time ago.

Not an out-of-the-box fit in 1997 Honda Accord. Extensive modification of speaker mounting holes was required to line up mounting screws with factory threaded holes in package shelf.

Pros: Good sound.

Cons: Does not fit vehicle as advertised.

These speakers have good range and really fill the cabin well. Direct bolt in with supplied adapters.

Pros: -Excellent sound even at high SPL's

Cons: - Could use a little more bass in the vehicle but I probably need a sub to really hit the lows.

I bought the speakers for a 2014 GMC Sierra. But I think all newer trucks have rain shield. [ lionel  Oct 20, 2015 ]
no these went into a montero in the rear. no rain worries. but i did have to modify the hole to make them fit a little. they werent a direct fit 6x9 replacement. [ MAUNA LAKI  Oct 20, 2015 ]
Yes, always amp up your speakers. Lack of power will blow a speaker quicker than to much power. [ DALLAS  Aug 07, 2015 ]
Suprisingly, they sound much better than factory speakers even without an amp. I've had them installed for about a year with a kenwood stereo, no plans for an amp. [ HENRY  Aug 04, 2015 ]
Hard to say without knowing what "factory" sounds like. I can say this though, these were 100 times better than OEM in the 04 Impala. Even better when we matched them up to a Kenwood head unit. [ ROBERT W  Aug 04, 2015 ]
It depends on what kind of sound your listening for but the RMS of 14 watts is better than stock. I use an amp for my sound but I got two 12" sub to go with it. [ lionel  Aug 04, 2015 ]
