Our take on the Kenwood KFC-P680C

by Leigh Schoettinger
Kenwood

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.

It's the little things that can make a big difference when you're comparing speaker systems. Check out the features that distinguish these Kenwood plate speakers from the rest of the 6"x8" pack.

Each KFC-P680C speaker features a 6" woofer and 3/4" swivel tweeter with a high- and low-pass crossover network, all mounted onto a single 6"x8" plate. The stiff mica-injected polypropylene woofer delivers bass with a high degree of accuracy, while a durable butyl rubber surround controls cone excursion for smooth response.

Kenwood builds the soft dome tweeter from a lightweight yet stable material that radiates crystal-clear highs without harshness. The crossover network blends tweeter and woofer together seamlessly to eliminate "dead" or "hot" spots in your music.

Kenwood designs the KFC-P680C to fit perfectly in many Fords, Mazdas, and other vehicles with 6"x8" openings. Enjoy the superior sound of component speakers from these easy-to-install Kenwoods.

Features

Woofers: Each 6x8" plate-speaker features a 6" mica-injected polypropylene cone woofer with a 8.1 ounce magnet to provide deep and accurate bass response. The woofers feature butyl rubber surrounds for a smoother response and improved durability.

Tweeters: Each 6x8" plate-speaker also features a 3/4" soft-dome tweeter for clear and natural highs. The tweeters can swivel 15-degrees to help provide you with a better audio soundstage in your vehicle.

Installation: The 6x8" plate-speaker is designed to fit perfectly in many 6x8" size openings in some of the most popular vehicles including Ford and Mazda. Please check the Crutchfield Car Selector Guide for your vehicle's speaker sizes. The 3/4" tweeters and the crossovers comes attached to the 6x8" speaker bracket, while the 6" woofers are detached. Once the speaker-plate brackets are mounted in your vehicle using the supplied eight sheet-metal screws and connected to car audio system's speaker wiring, the 6" woofers are in then mounted to the brackets with the supplied six smaller screws and connected to the 4" speaker wires attached to the crossover of the speaker-plate.

fantasic speakers

Written By kfc p680c great speakers, severn maryland on Monday, April 07, 2014
 
Very easy to install , shipping was fast ,all the brackets lined up and they sound great now that I have a new head unit . If you are planning on purchasing these speakers do your self a favor and buy a head unit because they sound terrible under powered . If u get a head unit with a built in amp with 22 rms 50 watts per channel it will sound crystal clear.
Cons:
Be careful when connecting the wires to the speakers the metal is a little thin

Great sound and easy install Kenwood KFC-P680C

Written By m, Denver, CO on Saturday, December 01, 2012
 
Installed 2 sets in 2004 Mercury Mountaineer. Installed went perfectly smooth. These speakers mount in the right spots without any mods. Once installed, they sounded awesome! For spending couple of hours in install, because I am a novice, and awesome sound for good price(other sites). I am used to Legacy Audio Whysper XD's at home.. So I know what good sound is supposed to be like. I would recommend these to anyone who wants quick and easy sound upgrade to their cars.

Kenwood makes a great product

Written By Tyler N., Toledo, OH on Thursday, July 07, 2011
 
I didn't really know what to expect from these speakers before purchase. No one I knew had ever tried them and I even tried some car audio forums to find information.

No one seemed to have any. I took a leap of faith and purchased them. I couldn't be happier! The sensitivity is high enough to work well with my factory radio and provide crisp, clear highs and mids. I lost a little bottom end switching to these over the factory speaker, but what it lacks in volume, it makes up for in quality.

Give these a try, you'll love them! (P.S. There are better prices out there...)

There is a reason theses speakers cost a little more. It's call GREAT sound wich is what you can expect from these speakers. Install in my Ford expedition and even though the gas prices are up, I still want to take my truck on every outing no matter how short or long the trip might be. That is what great sound does for me.

Kenwood KFC-P680C

Written By astraelraen, ID on Monday, August 13, 2007
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These are pretty good speakers for a plate package. They sound good and they produce reasonable bass for a component set.

The only real gripe I have is that they are nowhere near 6" woofers, measured with measuring tape they are like 5.25 at most. If you have 6x8 openings and don't want to try and force 6 1/2" components to fit, these are a great substitute.
