Kenwood's Performance Series speakers deliver the full range of your music with their multi-driver designs. The woofer cone features a Diamond Array pattern that increases the strength of its surface, improving bass response as well as reducing internal vibrations and other distortions. Kenwood's Image Enhancer 4 directs the sound emanating from the midrange drivers and tweeters, blending their signals to give a clean, well-defined focus to your musical soundstage. You'll hear smoother vocals, wider "sweet spot" dispersion, and less distortion.

The KFC-6983PS 6"x9" 4-way speakers employ polypropylene woofer cones to reproduce your lower frequencies with accuracy and strength. The rubber surround resists weathering and provides reliable support that keeps your music playing, no matter what. The 2-3/4" water-resistant paper cone covers the midrange frequencies, providing warmth in the vocal range. A balanced-dome tweeter, and a smaller dome supertweeter broadcast the high frequencies effectively to complete the all-round coverage that lets your music stretch out and come alive.

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.

Great Sound

Written By, Santa Barbara, CA on Friday, May 16, 2014

Had them for a year now and sound great. I have abused the heck out them and still running strong. Great price for the performance.

Pros: Sound is clear, can handle the power. Still look good.

Cons: Heavy and tweeter stick up a little bit to much no big deal.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These go well with bass blockers, for the price they could at least furnish them for
you. I can not wait for a head unit haha

Very good for the money

Written By Dangerous Dan, San Diego on Monday, March 01, 2010

I needed a set of 6 by 9's to fill out the sound stage for the rear. I said what the heck I'll try them and I was plesantly surprised! I have them amped with a JBL 6501 and they are clean and handle all the power I have to give them. The bass is a little on the weak side but that's not what I got them for. BUT they are punchy and tight and fill out the mid bass quite nicely. I can definately live with them and they compliment my Mb Quart referance componets well. Good buy not a lot of money.

Product Research


Image Enhancer: The KFC-6983PS is equipped with Kenwood's Image Enhancer 4 surrounding the midrange and tweeters. Its smooth rounded surface eliminates most of the reflected sound waves that would interfere with the direct sound waves coming from the tweeters. The end result is a better dispersion pattern, less distortion, and clear high-frequency reproduction.

Cone Woofers: The woofer cones are textured Polypropylene with rubber surrounds. Polypropylene woofers are resistant to moisture and temperature extremes found in automotive applications.

Midrange: The 2-3/4" cone paper midrange adds vocal clarity to the speaker.

Tweeter: Each speaker has a 13/16" PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) balanced dome tweeter. Balanced dome tweeters are semi-dome tweeters with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the tweeter; a balanced-dome tweeter produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging.

Super-Tweeters: Each speaker also features a 13/16" PET dome super-tweeter for added high frequency response.
