Our take on the Kenwood KFC-1061S

by Leigh Schoettinger
Kenwood

Kenwood's Sport series speakers promise to spruce up your ride without flattening your wallet. The 4" KFC-1061S 3-way speakers utilize high-quality woofers and tweeters to bring new clarity and enhanced performance to your car audio system.

Polypropylene woofers beef up your music with full, bold sound, so you'll hear the drumbeat and not your own car's rattles and rolls. Balanced-dome tweeters reproduce the musical details that make your tunes sound natural and alive. Hard ceramic passive tweeters fill out the sound spectrum with high-frequency excitement. Car trips go faster with great sound from Kenwood. Grilles are included.

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Features

Woofers: The woofer cones are constructed from injection-molded polypropylene. This process of cone molding assures a uniform cone thickness for superior linearity and clarity. The cones are lightweight and rigid for low distortion and good bass response. Each woofer uses a treated cloth surround.

Tweeters: Each speaker uses a 7/8" PEI balanced-dome tweeter. PEI (Poly-Ether Imide) is a polymer film that has ideal sound characteristics, making it perfect for use as a tweeter. A PEI balanced-dome tweeter produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging.

Passive Tweeter: The speaker also utilizes a 1/2" ceramic passive tweeter for added high frequency reproduction.

4/2 Hole Compatibility: The speaker tabs are perforated for easy removal, allowing you to use the speakers in 4-hole or 2-hole (size 4T) applications.

Good sound - small package

Written By 245Dad, Edmonds, Wa on Monday, January 26, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These are the secondary speakers in the back door of my son's volvo wagon. Fit perfect with factory grilles. Descent sound but not expecting much base from a 4". Would purchase again.

No Volume

Written By Leon, Nashville,TN on Monday, January 26, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I installed a set of these speakers(4) and had no volume untill turned at least 3/4 of the way up. I was told I had a bad amplifier form your tech assistance at Crutchfield. I knew the amp was good because my test speaker worked just fine at the factory hook ups. I purchased a new set of speakers from the dealer and they worked just fine.

Excellent Replacements!

Written By Matthew, Vermont on Tuesday, October 28, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I put these in my 91 Lexus LS as a replacement to the aging ones that came stock and they sound EXCELLENT! I turned my volume up all the way and it sounds superb! I would recommend these as a cheap replacement to any other UCF10 LS400 owners.

A little disappointing.

Written By Matt, MD on Tuesday, October 21, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I've been using kenwood 4" speakers in my dash for many years, and I always thought they sounded as good as any $100 pair, but this latest set was disappointing. They distorted, and didn't reproduce the higher frequencies as clearly as my older sets of kenwoods.

A GREAT FACTORY REPLACEMENT

Written By Antonio, Brooklyn, NY on Friday, September 05, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Definately worth the purchase. I would tell a friend, and as a matter of fact I have, spoken to friends about the speakers and especially Crutchfield. Crutchfield supplies you with more than enough for you to get your monies worth, no one comes close.
These speakers work great, the sound quality is clear and crisp. If powered by an amp, I can imagine there real abilities, A REALLY GOOD BUY. Thanks Crutchfield Team.

A bit disappointed...

Written By Stephen, Tuscaloosa, AL on Sunday, August 17, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Bought these for a 2001 Honda Odyssey rear speaker replacement, with
the factory head unit and no additional amplification. They really don't
sound much different from the factory speakers. When I replaced the front
speakers some time ago, the improvement was unmistakable so I was
expecting greater efficiency (volume) and highs also with rear
replacement. They are fairly far away from me in the driver's seat though.
Perhaps I was expecting too much but it's disappointing that I have a hard
time hearing any difference between factory and these speakers.

Great little speakers

Written By Geren, Columbia, MD on Friday, August 15, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I just installed a pair of these in the rear of my '99 Rodeo. It took all of 15
minutes, including liberating the speakers from the box! The sound, for a
four-inch speaker is pretty decent. In my setup, I've got JVC's SRS-Auto
mode on, so they're acting more as surround speakers, and for that, they
add great depth to the sound.

The fronts are the 5-1/4" version of these same speakers. Once I get
baffles made up for the front speakers, the system should really sound
pretty darned nice, and will sound even better once I add a small sub
under the driver's seat.

put these in rear pillar of 96 trooper, extremely long way from back to front but still are far better than OEM speakers. Overall, good value for the money.

good speakers for the $, great service from Crutchfield

Written By Derek, West Linn, OR on Thursday, July 03, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I replaced the stock speakers behind the seats in my 97 BMW Z3 Roadster. Crutchfield listed these Kenwoods as a fit for my car but that turned out to be incorrect. My 97 Z3 roadster (and it is NOT the M model) has 2" speakers behind the seats and I had to enlarge the holes to fit these Kenwood's in.. it was pretty easy though (gotta love the Dremel :)) and they sound far better than the stock speakers did.

Replaced rear
speakers in my 2001
Honda Odyssey. Very
easy to replace.
They sound a little
better than the
factory speakers
(which I had to
replace as the glue
had come lose on one
of them). A little
better on the highs.
Like the factory
speakers there is
zero bass.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Replaced the factory dash speakers on my '87 ranger with these, way better sound quality, but i have to turn it up more to get the same amount of volume out of them. The grilles were pointless, b/c they wouldn't fit into the space for the speaker. Overall, great addition, don't distort till I turn it way up, definitely reccomend them to anyone with 4" factory speakers.

Good for a 4" speaker

Written By ben, Annapolis, MD on Tuesday, March 25, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
You won't get too much bass out of these, being as they are only 4"
speakers, but they beat any oem 4" speakers out there!! The bass IS
better, the midrange and treble and just fine. I'd recommend them to
anyone with oem 4" speakers who want to improve their system!!!!

Decent speakers...

Written By J.R., Hampton, VA on Thursday, March 06, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These Kenwood speakers aren't the top of the line, but they aren't bad for
the price. I wanted to replace the front and rear factory speakers to a 1995
GMC Jimmy 4 Door and I didn't want to spend too much money on it since
the truck is pretty old. The front speakers include the speaker bracket and
wire harness. The rear speakers do not. You will need to keep the rear
factory brackets and drill new holes to mount the new speakers in. You will
also have to cut and splice the rear speaker wires to attach it to the new
speakers too.
If you have a 1995 GMC Jimmy 4dr, you will find out that taking the door
panels off isn't as simple as it seems. It's difficult to disconnect the wires to
the power locks, power mirror, and power windows. The factory speaker
brackets are not screwed in as the crutchfield installation directions state.
They are actually mounted in the door frame with rivets. You will need to
use a 1/8 drill bit to punch them out. Thanks, Crutchfield, for the product,
fast shipping, and support.

Good stock speaker replacement

Written By Larry, Orem, UT on Thursday, January 24, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I replaced the stock rear panel speakers (2001 Honda Odyssey) with these and it made a 100% improvement. Good sound, but not much bass - that's to be expected from a 4" speaker though. Install was soooo easy, took about 10 minutes. Thanks Crutchfield!

Good performing set of 4" speakers

Written By John, Plains, MT on Wednesday, February 14, 2007
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought this set to replace my stock speakers which I had not been using in my Toyota pickup, Im powering them off my Kenwood Excelon KDC-890 HU ( front - left & right )! I found them to be a good & clear speaker, obviously not a high performance speaker, but, when I need subtle music listening when my amps are off, this was a very good choice. Kenwood has really came along way throughout the years in car audio, and they have a product for everyones needs. I installed ( bass blockers ) on these knowing that I wasnt going to depend on them for my low audio output. All in all, very good product & fits my needs very well ! Justa word of advice always check & closely match your RMS minimum output & in most cases the max as well & remember all types of music & personal choices in music differ from one person to another so choose what fits your ears as well as your budget. Great job Kenwood & Cruthfield !
