Treat your ears to a fuller, richer soundstage! Kenwood has adapted anti-diffraction home speaker technology and put it on their Image Enhancer series car speakers. A smooth surface around the PEI balanced dome tweeter eliminates much of the reflected sound waves that can bounce off a flat, hard surface and interfere with the direct sound waves coming from the tweeter. The result is wider "sweet spot" dispersion, less distortion, and more accurate mid and high frequencies.

The KFC-C6879ie 6"x8" speaker pounds out deep bass notes from a pearl-mica injection-molded woofer. The rubber surround resists deterioration so you'll enjoy the sound of these speakers for a long time! Grilles are not included — factory grilles are appropriate for most installations.

Very pleased

Written By Jim, Monroe, GA on Saturday, November 26, 2005

I am very pleased with the performance of these speakers. Crisp highs and midtone and more bass than expected. Crutchfield's vehicle specific, illustrated instructions were SUPERB..... much better than the OEM.

Clean, distortion-free sound

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If you want high-quality 2-way 6x8 speakers, then these are for you. The sound is extremely crisp and clear, even at HIGH volumes! I was surprised at the amount of bass they generated too (I have mine wired to a Kenwood KDC-MP4028). I had to actually go in and turn the bass down because the kick panel in my Focus kept hitting against my knee!

Product Research


Image Enhancer: The KFC-C6879ie is equipped with Kenwood's patented Image Enhancer surrounding the tweeter. 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.

Woofers: The woofer cones are silver Pearl Mica Injection-Molded Polypropylene. Uniform pearl mica crystals form an overlapping structure that adds strength and heat resistance to polypropylene; the result is reduced distortion and improved reliability.

Surrounds: Each speaker has a rubber surround.

Tweeters: Each speaker has a 1-3/16" 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.
