6x8 2-way speakers

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-C6865S 6"x8" 2-way speakers feature polypropylene 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.


  • 6"x8" 2-way speakers (pair)
  • polypropylene woofer with 1" balanced dome tweeter
  • grilles included
  • power range: 2-30 watts RMS (250 watts peak power)
  • impedance: 4 ohms
  • frequency response: 35-22,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 92 dB
  • top-mount depth: 2-5/16"
  • warranty: 1 year
  • 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.

Installed easily and great Sound. Hugh improvement over Stock Speakers

Cheap sound

Written By bjah, Ohio on Saturday, July 18, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Cheap sound. Highs are not great and the mid-range sound where you here voices are muffled and compromised by the the strained bass from the woofer. I would say amplify this speaker with the maximum amount of specified wattage and use filters because i am sure running the speaker as a full range speaker will produce some distortion.

Pros: not costly and it is a direct mazda factory fit

Cons: the factory speaker produced a better sound (Highs, mid-ranges, lows) than the kenwood aftermarkets - should have went with my first mind and purchased the Polk Audio

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

They came with connector wires all nice and put together "awesome" I thought and after installing them and only getting one side working I found the problem being with that wire connector not holding the wire tight. So I thought I would take it off but the bridge where it connects is so tiny it was bending pulling the connector off, and about to break. Once working, they sound about like a really loud cell phone speaker. But I did have some 7 year old Fosgate Power series I was comparing to and the one working one sounds better than these. Crutchfield should consider not selling these any longer, it's a waste of time and effort. A cheap speaker that sounds terrible is worth being proud of because it was so cheap, but a more expensive one has traditionally got a slightly better sounding speaker.

Pros: Fits in factory position

Cons: Sounds like $20 for a lot more money.

Great for the Money

Great Value for new Speakers

Written By Dave, Santa Cruz, California on Monday, September 15, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers replaced factory speakers in a 2010 Ford Ranger truck. I added a new Kenwood head unit to the truck at the same time and the sound upgrade was unbelievable. My original intent was to add additional functionality to the truck stereo (bluetooth, Sirius) but the new speakers really added punch to the system. Plan on using the same speakers when I upgrade my Jeep.

Pros: Ease of installation (thanks to Crutchfield adapters) Sound quality Price

Cons: None

Decent little drop in

Written By bunkH2o, New Lisbon, WI on Saturday, May 31, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

By far this is no incredible speaker. It struggles with lows, as any oval speaker will, but the mids and highs are pretty crisp. I put these in my '02 F250 Crew Cab and they fit perfectly. Did a really good job of spiffing up the sound to a 12 year old vehicle. Next up is a single sub and we should have great sound!

Pros: Inexpensive, mids and highs are crispy

Cons: Lows are lacking

Brighter Sound

I replaced my factory Ford F150 speakers with these. I get a much brighter, fuller sound now. The old factory ones did their duty for 9 years but it was time for an update. The new Pioneers make drives much more enjoyable now.

Pros: Much better sound for the road.

Cons: None

Fit the bill.

Replacements for OEM speakers in a 1994 Ford Probe project car, the installation was effortless and the sound quality is excellent. A definite recommend.

Pros: Low cost. Easy of installation. Customer support. Quality of sound.

Cons: None.

Don't bother

Written By Glenn W, SE WI on Sunday, April 13, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Kenwood really phoned it in on this one. Just going from a single cone to a coaxial should have been more of an improvement than this. Ford did a better job on the OEM than KW did on these. Bought 2 pair and put in the rear door ones first, doubt if I'll bother putting the front pair in. I'll get better sound from a pair of Polk DB521/DXi525 5¼" ones with adapters than what these produce. Crutchfield would be better off not selling these so they won't be disappointing folks that would've gotten something else from them instead.

Pros: They fit.

Cons: "For the money" let's them off easy. If you're going to go through the effort of pulling body panels to upgrade your speakers, your ride deserves better than these.

Great overall sound

Written By Patrick, State Center, IA on Sunday, April 06, 2014

First, these sound great for what they are. Particularly, the highs are crisp and the tweeters have held up nicely over periods of long use. As with any 5x7 or 6x8 setup, you are not going to get amazing lows, as expected, but mid-level bass with these is somewhat punchy and clear. They sounded good with the factory head unit... After I paired them with a new Kenwood unit from Crutchfield, they sound much better. Mid and high-range sounds are clear and can take ever watt of volume put at them without distorting from the 22 watts RMS from the Kenwood head unit. Interestingly, mine came with adjustable/directional tweeter domes. Not sure if this was a change in the model or what (part number is the same) but they sound great. The wiring harnesses from Crutchfield are not necessary, but are a nice bonus to anyone unfamilier with speaker install or weak electrical background. I would definitely buy these again.

Pros: Crisp highs, highs do not distort at high volume, overall great sound for this size.

Cons: None

Product Research


Tweeters: Each speaker has a 1" PEI balanced dome tweeter. 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. PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide) is a polymer film that produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging.

Mounting Applications: Kenwood describes this speaker as a 6x8, but it also fits many 5x7 applications. Please check the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to confirm fit.
