Our take on the Kenwood KFC- 6985PS

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.


6x9 4-way speakers

Four drivers is a good thing

Kenwood's Performance Series speakers use a multi-driver design to give you articulate lows, clean vocals, and startling highs. That's a lot of sonic bang for your buck.

A whole new speaker

The KFC-6985PS 6"x9" speakers feature a water-resistant paper cone woofer with a new radial rib pattern, which increases speaker strength and delivers more responsive bass. The addition of a urethane surround ensures a new level of overall durability, so you'll be enjoying that fresh-from-the-box sound for years.

All the finer musical details are handled by the 2-3/4" paper cone midrange driver, 13/16" PET balanced dome tweete, and 1/2" PET dome supertweeter. Kenwood engineered a smoother listening experience with the Acoustic Sound Harmonizer, which uses slots on the mount housing the midrange, tweeter, and supertweeter to improve the progression into the higher frequencies. Grilles are included for custom installations.

Great Sounding

Written By QualityNotVolume, Houston, TX on Monday, April 21, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Sounds great in the front doors teamed with Kenwood Excelon KDC-X597 and another pair of Kenwood 6.5" 3 ways in the back doors of a Dodge Quad Cab. You will have to remove door panels and using the pattern cut with a skill saw, drill a couple holes and use longer screws...but it is fairly easy, just take your time.
Pros:
High quality sound.
Cons:
none
