Item #: 113C6895PS
Kenwood's Performance Series speakers employ a multi-driver design to give you articulate lows, clean vocals, and startling highs. Kenwood has incorporated the latest technology into these speakers, so you'll get the biggest sonic bang for your buck.
The KFC-C6895PS 6"x8" 3-way speakers feature a water-resistant paper woofer cone with a new radial rib pattern, which increases speaker strength and delivers more responsive bass. The addition of a rubber surround ensures a new level of overall durability, so you'll be enjoying that fresh-from-the-box sound for years.
All the musical details are handled by the 1-3/16" tweeter and 1/2" supertweeter. Kenwood engineered a smoother listening experience with the Acoustic Sound Harmonizer, which uses slots on the mount housing the tweeter and supertweeter to improve the progression into the higher frequencies. Grilles are not included — factory grilles are suitable for most installations.

Crystal clear quality sound!
Pros: Phenomenal sound at a good price!
For the price these speakers are pretty good so if your on a budget I would recommend them.
Pros: Over all sound on these 3 ways are OK.
Cons: Seems to be lacking on the crisp high range because the drivers want to over power the tweeters.
Great upgrade for the price over factory speakers
Pros: Easy install and sound great
These have only been running for a week but noticed that can handle all the power I'm throwing at them . running a 45 watt head unit ( Pioneer Nex 8000 ) with a Alpine 45 watt amp. having no problem whatsoever but these have a HIGH level of TWEEDER sound . I'm experimenting with my Powered SUB to get the right amount of EQUAL sound but this is difficult due to the variety of songs ( Rap, Pop,Opera, ECT..) but so far I recommend these if you have the REQUIRED power to push them 88RMS ?
Pros: Very strong
Cons: TWEEDER can be OVERWHELMING at times.
Great sound. Easy to follow instructions
Picked up an older car to commute to College. 2002 Ford Focus. Easy install. Which c-clamp process was easier, but figured it out.
Pros: Clean and crisp. Bass better than expected.
Installed in a 2009 Kia Rio with factory 4-speaker system. I'm not an audio professional or even an enthusiast really, but one of my factory front speakers was blown out so I decided to replace all 4 with decent aftermarket speakers. Honestly, I'm less than impressed by these speakers. They are actually quieter and produce less bass "feel" than the factory speakers did. Sound clarity increased a ton over the factory speakers, but now instead of having a balanced volume between the front door and the rear deck, most of the sound heard by the operator (me) comes only from the front two. There are virtually no bass hits coming from the rear deck/trunk area anymore, where the factory speakers could be heard and slightly felt even when standing next to the car outside. I admit it's a possibility that I need to replace the factory head unit with an aftermarket one in order to power these speakers properly. I am unsure of the power output rating of the factory head unit, and I certainly wasn't expecting the new speakers to be louder, but I wasn't expecting them to be quieter either. At the same time, I replaced the factory fronts with Kenwood's cheaper "sport series" KFC-1665S 6.5" speakers. They sound awesome so I'm not sure why the more expensive "performance" KFC-C6895PS 6x8" speakers would be so underwhelming. I still rated this product at 4 stars because I can't know for sure if the speakers are at fault or if my factory Kia head unit is just too weak to power them.
Pros: Exact fit, good sound clarity.
Cons: Can hardly hear these speakers. Volume turned up to 30+ used to be ear-splitting and unbearable with factory speakers, and is now not all that loud with these Kenwoods. Even when the Fade setting on the head unit is set to 100% rear, with no power to the fronts at all, the music is just not all that loud. Also, the wiring terminals are Extremely flimsy and bend easily during connection.
Installed in a 2007 Ford Escape. Fit front and back doors like a glove and sound great. Wiring adapters were perfect. Crutchfield is great to deal with.
Pros: Good clean sound...fit great.
Speakers were direct fit and direct plug with the included pigtails and were very easy to install. Great sound and well worth the price!
Pros: Easy to install
Been nothing but impressed with these Kenwood KFC-C6895PS speakers. Sound is crisp and tight. Highs are clear and the speakers seem to handle high volumes well. They are a great bang for the buck, and highly recommended.
Pros: Perfect Fit for 2006 Ford Explorer. Clean. Clear. Crisp.
Cons: Bass isn't super powerful (but is clean and punchy!) Add a sub to your system and this is no big deal.
I bought these door speakers for my 2001 Ford SuperDuty. In my opinion they have better sound than when they were new. Great sound!
Pros: Easy install with supplied wires
Great speakers for a Ford factory replace.
Pros: Fit with no aditional drilling. Sounds for price is great. The speakers can hold the output of the new head unit
Quality customer service and super fast shipping I have come to expect from Crutchfield. These speakers are a good upgrade from the old paper stock ones. The Mids and Highs are good and clear. Bass is pretty good considering the size. The only negative thing I'd have to say about them are that they start to sound a little distorted at higher levels. I have Mud Terrains on the truck and when driving around with the windows down it tends to be loud. I was looking for a speaker that would help cover up that noise. Seems to do ok, but may have to hook them up to an amp to help with clarity.
Pros: Fast Shipping, Direct fit without modification, Price, Quality, Ease of Installation
Cons: Distortion and lack of clarity at higher listening levels
Excellent stock upgrade for my ford F150. /the sound produced for the price is unbeatable. I am sure they will sound even better when I upgrade my receiver.
Pros: Great sound for the price. Great instructions, and easy install.
Awesome upgrade from my kicker ds the much higher rms rating was something my alpine amp was amused to powering up
Pros: Kenwood name
Cons: So far none
These speakers were shipped very fast, they were very easy to install and the exact fit. The online support really know their stuff. The easy installation kit worked great so I didn't have to spit wires and rewire the whole new speakers. The quality of my music makes a big difference and now I can feel my music too. The speakers have a great quality and Im sure will last. Great investment on my car audio. Crutchfield really is better than having to pay hundreds at an audio install. Crutchfields self installation guide is extremely good ajd detailed. Im definitely going to buy.
Pros: Self installation guide Easy installation kit/ wire adapter Great fit
Bought these for my wife with a new stereo. They are great! The highs are crisp and clear and the bass is perfect, no vibrations. She loves them and Loves to drive around in her car with the stereo cranked!
Pros: Good instructions
Very satisfied with these speakers for the Price. Excellent Fit!!
Pros: Great Sound. Great Fit.
nice clean sounding speakers. the only bad thing I can say is that I lost more than half of the bass it was putting out but still sounds good.
Pros: clean sounding speakers
Cons: bass was good for a short time not so much now
I have been a Kenwood fan for many years. And with products like this I will continue to be a fan for may years to come. I got 2 sets of this speaker into a 08 F-150 with an excelon head unit and I am a very happy camper. And this is their low end gear! I couldn't be happier
Pros: price sound
Cons: speaker tabs are weak. careful pressing wires on to them
Fast shipping, arrived on time. Great price. Easy install, supplied instructions were very easy. They sound great!
Just what I was looking for to go with my Kenwood receiver in my 2008 F-150.
Pros: 10 minute install in front doors.
I purchased 4 of these for a 2006 Ford Explorer as part of a complete system upgrade. These speakers sound great. For the price I paid I did not expect these to impress but I was wrong. Crystal clear even at high levels. The install was a piece of cake thanks to the wiring harness and door panel removal instructions from Crutchfield.
Pros: Sound great. Easy to install and great price.
Speakers were as advertised. I bought 2 pair along with a Kenwood head unit. They sound great.
Pros: Easy installation with the wiring harness for my truck
I replaced the stock speakers front and rear with Kenwood KFC-C6895PS paired with a Kenwood receiver. Clear sound deep bass and high treble, they were a perfect fit along with the supplied connectors. You can't go wrong with Crutchfield.com!
Pros: perfect fit for my 1998 Ford Ranger XLT
Put these bad boys into my 09 Mazda CX-7, and they fit like a glove. Sounds great even with the stock radio and no amp (those are coming soon). The master sheet was dead on, making the install very easy.
Pros: Sounds great, waiting for my new head unit and the amp. Then add the sub
Cons: Ummm,, none!
LOVE these speakers
Pros: Sound GREAT!
Cons: can't think of any ,love'em was going to buy an amp but don't think I need one got the kenwood 6x9's for back,they sound awesome love that bass!
Easy fit Great sound
Pros: Quick easy fit
Quite an improvement over my Pioneer two ways...more highs and mids with about the same bass..dont get me wrong,my Pioneers still rock but these are a tad better imho
Pros: better highs and mids without alot of bucks
I bought two pairs since they fit both front and rear doors. A definite upgrade over the oem speakers even with the factory radio. I believe an aftermarket radio would provide some added dimension so that the speakers could really be appreciated. Overall a good speaker and an excellent value.
Pros: Ease of installation, shipped quickly.
Cons: Not a significant upgrade over oem, but better nonetheless. Aftermarket head unit is necessary to truly appreciate the product.
Installed these in my son's Ford F250 Diesel and they were easy to install, fit perfect and sound outstanding. Would pick them again for another system.
Pros: Fit, ease of install, sound quality,
Kenwood KFC-C6895PS speakers sound great and easy to install
easy install sounds great!
These are 80W RMS speakers. If you're trying to push them with a factory stereo or even an upgraded head unit you are wasting your time. You need an amp that can push at least 60W RMS per channel. I'm using a Polk PA660 with these up front and some JBL 6x9s in back, and an Infinity 611A pushing two 10s, and it sounds like the band is in the car with me.
Pros: Clear & powerful.
Cons: You need an amp.
Fit right into place! Sounds really good!
Pros: Good highs and mids
Just installed these speaker sound clear and crisp ,good value for the money .would think these are a nice up grade
For one thing, your website needs to be updated with the right information regarding the fit of this speaker model on Ford Fusions 2008, 2009. It states this Kenwood speaker model does not fit, when in fact it does! My installer mounted these speakers with no problem on the rear side doors of my Ford Fusion 2008. Most Ford vehicles come with 6X8 factory speakers on rear and front side doors. I play burned CDs and my iPod.
Pros: Great speaker for mid-range and high frequencies. Good bass sound as well. Best to use this speaker with aftermarket amplifiers to take advantage of their quality. I have my factory six disc changer connected to a Kenwood 50 watt X 4 amplifier. I had to invest in an audio control unit to make it work. I have also connected a Bass-link Infinity Sub with built-in amplifier. The sound is fantastic!! I have also a great speaker system in the front with separate 6X8 woofers and twitters.
Cons: NoneCrutchfield response on November 19, 2014 Upon seeing this review, we took another look at these Kenwood speakers. The measurements are indeed close enough to fit a lot of vehicles that "officially" take 5x7 speakers. We changed our database so that from now on, these speakers will be included when it's checking the fit for 5x7 or 6x8 options in a vehicle. Previously, we only listed them as fitting a true 6x8 application.
These speakers were recommended by a Crutchfield specialist. They have good sound and were within my working budget. They were simple to install.
Pros: Good sound, easy to install
Cons: No cons I can think of yet
I replaced the front speakers in my 03 F350, which is tuned up and loud itself, along with an aftermarket stereo and was immediatly pleased. These speakers have no trouble drowning out any extra exhaust noise if you find it necessary to do so. They produce a great quality sound, were very reasonably priced, and shipped promptly. I would recommend these speakers and Crutchfield's service to anyone.
Pros: Very simple installation
I replaced all 4 of my factory speakers with these in my 05 mustang. There was immediate improvement and after I also replaced the subs (got the kicker shelby 8 in subs made for the shaker system in mustangs) the difference is amazing. These speakers have very clear highs as it says, in fact I almost felt they were too high before I replaced the subs and was able to balance the highs with the lows but you can adjust the settings with an aftermarket stereo and fix that right up. Anyway i'm happy with my purchase, crutchfield provided fast shipping with no problems.
Great speakers and the sound is awesome. Way better than the stock set up in my SUV. Next will I will buy another set of these to replace the front.
Pros: Better quality and sound over factory speakers.
Cons: Non at this time
Never take a Crutchfield reps advice! I was told these specific speakers would be everything I need for what I told my goal was... I can't turn the volume up without the speakers getting badly distorted ! Don't buy these!!!
Pros: Easy install
Cons: Everything! Distorting speakers right here .Crutchfield response on August 19, 2014 We're sorry to hear that you're not happy with the speakers. But that happens sometimes and that's why we have a friendly 60-day money back guarantee. Of course, it might just be that you need to add an amplifier to get the volume and clarity of sound you're looking for. If that's the case no speakers powered only by the stereo will ever satisfy you. Some of us are just unlucky that way! Adding a 50- or 75-watt RMS amp will really wake up the speakers. Something to consider.
I replaced the stock speakers in my 1997 Ford Explorer with these, and the improvement is substantial. I'm no audiophile, but I am very pleased with the improvement over stock.
Pros: Clarity, ease of install
I inherited a 2000 Ford Contour Sport. The only way I was going to drive this car was with a new sound system. These speakers are powered by a Kenwood head unit, with no amp in between. I have them in the front doors with Kenwood 2-ways in the rear. The sound they produce together is fantastic and way beyond the factory speakers that came in the car.
Pros: Easy to install
I was really impressed with the sound and quality of these speakers. I purchased these with my Kenwood DPX500BT headunit.
Pros: -Affordable -Crisp Sound (all around) -Awesome Quality for the price -Crisp highs -Great range -Massive improvement over factory
Cons: The push on adapters they send you can be loose and come off when installing. You want to check and make sure they are firmly secured. This is solely the adapter's issue, nothing with the speaker.
Good product for the money
Good speakers, excellent high end and mid. I noticed when i first installed them that the bass was being overpowered. I suggest getting something for the low end
Pros: Great high end
Cons: Overpowers the bass
Quick connect for factory wiring and instructions to install always the very best!
These speakers work great in my 05 freestyle. I have another set in my 96 Mustang but they're not amped. I just ordered another pair plus a 75w rms 4 channel amp to finish that car.
Pros: Crisp highs, great range, massive improvement over factory.
Cons: This might be just with a wire working loose in my car, but I used the free plug adapters to install in my freestyle, and occasional one of them cuts out and comes back on. When I get time I'll pull the door apart and make sure it's tight. Probably something that could be taken care of with a more careful install.
Great speakers! They were easy to install and have great crisp highs. I installed the sound ordinance 4x75w rms amplifier and it is loud. This is definitely a must before you get a subwoofer!
Pros: Crisp highs, loud, easy to install
Cons: No cons
Great speakers for the price. I replaced the rear junky factory speakers in my 99 ford escort with these. Very easy to install. Now i can turn the volume up loud enough to cover the various rattling the car makes. :)
This makes four in my truck now. Liked the first two so much that I had to give them a 5-star and a return buy.
Cons: Don't have a con.
For the money? Can't be beat. I paired four of these with just a deck in my Crown Victoria. They fill it with sound. Plenty for the family ride.
Pros: Great sound without a lot of expensive gear. Fit in the factory spot without any additional work. Great value.
Cons: A little weak in the low end? Duh they aren't 6x9s
Kenwood always made a great sounding speaker these things sound fantastic
Nice speakers for the money. Great sound at moderate volume levels.
Pros: Fits perfect in both front and rear doors on my 04 FX4. Retains the stock speaker grilles so everything still looks factory. Huge improvement in sound over the factory junk.
Cons: These speakers tend to distort a bit at high volume levels so if you want earsplitting volume a higher wattage rating might be better.

Unfortunately I can't answer your question accurately. I put mine in the rear of my Ford Ranger and they attach to the rear of the grills built into the rear panel. So I didn't need them. You might want to check some sound shops in your area. Or try Kenwood's website. I'm sure they can make something Happen. Good luck Oh by the way they are incredible sounding speakers [ Lawrence Jun 15, 2016 ]
Grilles are not included. [ Kenny May 27, 2016 ] Staff
I put mine in a couple years ago, but I believe they don't come with grills [ James May 27, 2016 ]
Thanks for your question. I have confirmed that Grilles are not included. This information is listed on the main product page by clicking the blue link "+Read More". Hope that helps. [ Kenny May 27, 2016 ] Staff
No, they do not. [ Brian May 27, 2016 ]
No, I'm pretty sure they did not. [ David May 27, 2016 ]

I installed these speakers in my Ford Explorer and was quite impressed with the sound that they put out,there is no vibration or distortion from the paper cone just great high and low tones You won't be disappointed [ NORMAN Dec 11, 2015 ]
your concern is perfectly logical but in the case of anything Kenwood I wouldn't worry there's a reason they're one of the best. [ Charles Dec 11, 2015 ]
Polypropylene is indeed a better material, but I don't think you will be disappointed. I bought these for my pickup yo compliment a 10" subwoofer and I had no issues. They sounded great, and for the money you couldn't beat it. Of course I would have preferred a poly cone, but I wasn't willing to spend that kind of money. If you're looking for a decent sounding price point alternative to a poly speaker, buy these. If you want championship winning quality, you are better off continuing your search into the pricier options. [ Bradley Dec 11, 2015 ]
