Kenwood's Performance Series speakers deliver the full range of your music with accuracy and warmth. The KFC-P509PS component speaker system includes two 5-1/4" woofers and two 1" dome tweeters, along with in-line crossover networks that simplify installation.
Each 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. The cone's rubber surround resists weathering and provides reliable support that keeps your music playing, no matter what.
The 1" soft dome tweeter mounts in a separate location closer to your ears, so it can broadcast the high-frequency details more effectively. The in-line crossover network routes the correct frequencies to the woofer and tweeter, so you hear clean, balanced sound.
Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.
A component speaker system gives you the best possible performance from your car audio system. A system consists of separate woofers, tweeters, and crossovers, each designed to cover one specific range of frequencies. As separate components, the woofer can move freely to deliver more powerful performance, while the tweeter can be custom-mounted in a better spot up closer to your ears, revealing a whole new world of detail. Separate crossovers are far superior to the simple filters wired into full-range speakers, so the components work together for smoother, more focused sound.
If u want nice bass and good sound get these. I got one set, should've gotten 2.
Pros: Much better than 3 ways. Easy to install. Good price. These put my 3 ways that I purchased with these to shame.
Cons: None really. Get what u pay for.
These sound great in my 2003 Avalanche. A real upgrade from the factory originals. I had to tweak the placement of the tweeters but otherwise very easy to install.
Pros: Sound quality
Cons: Tweeter install location is a bit ghetto.
Great speakers once amplified
Pros: Perfect fit in most cars
These speakers worked well for the first few months of having them, but then I started hearing some signs of one of them being blown while I had them hooked up the the 45W RMS that they're rated for (checked for clipping with O-Scope). The midbass from these isn't impressive at all for what I paid and the highs are almost ear-piercing. I would not get these again and I would not recommend them to anyone.
Pros: Fit well in a 1998 Grand Prix GTP, had to hot-glue the tweeters into the door sail (expected that with any component set I would've got). Sounded ok for a few months.
Cons: Poor build quality, poor sound field, rattling after less than a year on the 45W RMS specified that they can handle.
The sound quality is outstanding. With the set-up I have it sounds like a concert in the car.
Pros: Great sound quality. The voice from the mids is clear and conscise. The tweeters produce outstanding highs.
I'm no audio expert but to me these speakers sound clean with the Kenwood radio I installed at the same time. The factory speakers were blown (cranked 1812 Overture up a bit much) and I fried the front panel of the stock radio. I'm still trying to get more mid-range from them and can't pin down if it's my radio settings or the bass blockers that I installed since I also installed an 8" powered sub. Radio options are not intuitive (that's another review) and I haven't had time to take everything back apart and remove the blockers. Although Crutchfield provided adapters for the speakers, brackets for the tweeters had to be fabricated and I cracked the housing that came with them as the directions for removing it was a pictogram that didn't show enough detail. A picture showing how it should look removed would have helped along with something written explaining the process better.
Pros: Clean sounding.
Cons: instructions could be better
They don't have the punch i thought they would.. the tweeters are louder than the 5 1/4 's .. i have them hooked up to a kdc-x797 no amp..
Pros: price and were somewhat easy to install..
Cons: not the sound i was looking for.. Bass almost non existent. mids are there but not very loud..
Great sounding (budget) speakers. Universal installation for most applications. I was hoping these would work in my wife's 2001 Acura Integra, since it came stock with component tweeters. Despite the amount of different mounting methods, it was quite difficult to make these work, since I had to use the factory grilles (since the Kenwood bezels were too small for the hole in the door panel.) I would have given 5-stars if this speaker kit worked flawlessly for my application. Several weeks later, they sound great and as for speaker/sound quality, I have no complaints.
Pros: Universal mounting for most applications.
Added these with a new Kenwood stereo in my f150. They have have great all around sound, no distortion, and are very loud.
Pros: Great sound Good price
I installed these in my 1998 Grand Prix GTP today. I could not get the tweeters to fit right so I just hooked up the original ones and they sound great. The woofers sound so much better than the original speakers (from 1998). They sound better than the 6.5" pioneers that I had installed in my 03 cavalier by far and I'm impressed with them.
Pros: Great sound, clear, nice looking, easy install
Cons: Could not get tweeters installed without drilling hole in door panel (Crutchfield said they would fit in factory location but they didn't fit)
Sweet set of Clearance Speakers! I love Kenwood Sound! I highly recommend these speakers!
Pros: Crystal Clear sound and good depth too! Best part! They fit in all the stock spots that are in the vehicle already so no crazy cutting and building going on! Car still looks factory new! Awesome!
Cons: None I can think of!
I installed these in the front doors of a 2004 Mazda rx8, the installation was extremely easy. The adapter plates, factory matched speaker wire plugs and master build sheet included by crutchfield made it an easy fun project. The crossover/tweeter feed wire was long enough and was easily routed through the existing clips and grommets. The only modification I made was to remove the tweeters from they're mounting brackets and removed the grilles. They fit perfectly in the factory door sail mount I also fabricated a wedge underneath to direct the output toward the rear of cab more, so the highs would fill the space better. These speakers did exactly as I expected and I now have great mids and highs in the cabin of this car. It's amazing what it was lacking with the stock system
Pros: Ease of install, crisp clear mids and highs, durability, price
Cons: Should have option to purchase without grilles. For a factory location they're not needed and is a waste of materials
Installed into a 2002 RSX. With the supplied mounting hardware, they fit perfectly! The sound awesome!
Pros: Ease of installation
speakers were easy to instal and have a good sound. Always enjoy Crutchfields service.
Kenwoods are a quality product.
I installed these speakers in the front doors of a Chevy Silverado Crew Cab..Sound quality is not very good.
Cons: Sound Quality Poor,,,,, Installation was not as easy as back door speakers
Dont waste your money on these.....Usually Kenwood is a pretty reliable name in speakers but these are junk. The sound is really distorted and sound isnt clean at all.....you can definitely get something better for the same $$
Great replacement for stock speakers. Fit and work as described. The
installation info is invaluable and help is only a call away and online. Also calls
are answered quickly and no automated answering service that put you on hold
like most support lines. Also purchased a Kenwood receiver KDC-MP345U
which is a great combo.
Just installed these in the rear deck of my '01 Neon along with the matching P709PS in the
front door. I don't know how they'd sound powered off a head unit amp, but with a decent 4
channel they really come alive! I previously had a set of 9 year old JL 6x9's without an amp
and this setup is like night and day compared to those. Like I said a real nice value.
The only thing that's not mentioned is the crossover isn't much. It's just heatshrinked into
the line from the tweeters to main speaker. That and the line length may not be sufficient if
you're installing the tweeters in factory locations. But all in all, am really enjoying these
