Speaker excellence

Kenwood Excelon speakers incorporate technical know-how and advanced materials to give your music the full, rich sound it deserves. These full-range speakers sport a diamond-array pattern etched into their woofers that increases the strength of the carbon-polypropylene cone for improved dynamic response and lower distortion. The butyl rubber surround resists weathering, providing reliable support that keeps your music playing, no matter what.

The KFC-X133 5-1/4" full-range speakers feature 3/4" silk dome tweeters that deliver all the high-frequency details without sounding harsh. Because of their specially designed magnetic circuitry and neodymium magnets, these compact tweeters use less steel in their construction than most tweeters, so you'll hear more accurate response.

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 speakers you can't go wrong with

Written By KassidyK, Oklahoma on Monday, December 29, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Definitely better than stock speakers. They're not hard to install at all. It's nice how clear the music is through them. They are, without a doubt, awesome speakers for the great price you pay for them. You can't go wrong with Crutchfield.

Pros: Great speakers.

Cons: None that I know of.

Good sound from small speaker

Written By Jeff, Petersburg, IL on Monday, October 20, 2014

I purchased these as a replacement to the back door speakers on my 2003 Jeep Liberty at the recommendation of a local audio store. Shipping was very fast and installation was simple. I think it took me less than an hour to install both speakers using the included speaker adapter.

I think these little speakers sound really good. Even though my stock speakers were 6 3/4, I purchased these smaller ones based on the recommendation. I'm very happy with them, although I may have preferred getting the bigger speakers if I would have researched know, it's a mental thing ("bigger is better"). LOL.

Pros: Great sound, quality built, easy installation.

Kenwood speakers for 2000 Integra

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Speakers were for my sons car. Speakers sound better than originals. Not a direct fit. Had to trim and cut open the original speaker enclosures.

Pros: Sounds better than the originals

Cons: Not a direct fit. Had to cut and trim original speaker enclosures.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent speakers for the money. Mids are clear, the treble is not super harsh and you can get a surprising amount of low-end thump and boom out of these given the fact that they're 5" speakers. Are there better speakers out there? Of course there are. Are these great speakers for the price you'll pay? Without a doubt.

Pros: Great all around speaker for the money

Cons: None come to mind

Much better than stock

Written By Mike, Casper Wyoming on Wednesday, December 18, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Much better than stock. I don't have a lot to say, because I don't have multiple speakers to compare them to.

Pros: Heavy. Clear. Dynamic.

Cons: Speaker Grill is flimsy and doesn't attach very secure. This would not prevent me from purchasing another pair, however.

Very Clear, Clean Sound

Written By AmanG, Central Valley, CA on Thursday, September 19, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great speakers, produce beautiful sound, it's immersive, which is what I was looking for. The highs are high, and the mids are clear. Paired with a KDC-X997 I get amazing sound from these speakers, and that's without being powered by a 4 channel amp (for now). These speakers are built very very well. I can open up the doors on my truck, put the volume up to 26 and have music playing behind the truck and you can easily hear everything in the song. Highly recommend a subwoofer with these to match the mids and highs these speakers will put out!

Pros: Sound amazing, and produce alot of sound. Built well.

Cons: Seems as though these speakers are made to be part of a complete system, in which I mean it's assumed your adding or already have a subwoofer.

Very nice

Written By TomG, Altoona, PA on Wednesday, July 18, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've bought 2 pairs of these speakers to replace the factory speakers in my Accent. I am very pleased with the sound quality. I also have a Kenwood receiver. I listen to a large range of music and I hear things in the music that I didn't hear before. The sound is nice is clear and I can crank the volume pretty loud without it overpowering the speakers. There is still a point where they do start to garble, but at that point, the volume is too loud and you should be wearing ear plugs at that level. With these speakers, I do recommend that you get a separate sub. I haven't used them without, but I'm pretty sure these speakers were not designed to put out bass.

Pros: Great sound quality, mounted perfectly, price(when I bought them)

Cons: Not made for bass, get a sub.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these to replace my front speakers on a 2000 GMC Sierra 1500, which are located in the front doors. I had prior experience taking off the door pieces to get at the speakers when I replaced a window motor. There is at least one YouTube video that shows you exactly how to do it--it is VERY simple. Switching out the factory speakers for these was VERY simple. I also replaced the receiver, so the job took me a little more than an hour. I"m a rock guy. I tend to listen to my music at a high volume. The factory speakers were obviously not great, but they did the job for me for 12 years. These speakers are very good at mid and low volumes. The sound is unquestionably better. However, at high volumes, they can't handle bass of any sort. Ordinarily, that' would be fine with me, since I HATE bass-heavy music, but the sound distortion is pretty bad at high volumes, which is a problem I never had with my factory speakers. I do understand that these are only 5 1/4 speakers and, in a proper system, shouldn't handle the bulk of the heavy work. I am unlikely ever to buy an amp and a sub, but I'm sure that the sound would be much better at higher volumes if I did. I didn't replace the rear speakers because they're smaller than the fronts in a Sierra, but maybe if I also swap them out for better speakers the overall sound at high volume will improve.

Pros: Price, Ease of Install

Good Value for $$

As promised -- could use a subwoofer with these.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent speakers for their size! I would recommend these combined with a subwoofer for extended bass response. The highs are very smooth, detailed and clear. And you cannot go wrong working with Crutchfield!

Get everything you’ll need to enjoy your new Kenwood Excelon KFC-X133

Reduce ambient road noise and your vehicle's "rattles," for better sound inside your car.
You may need speaker wire to connect your speakers to your amp or receiver.
Keep your speakers clean and dry. They compress to fit behind your speakers.
These speaker connectors are handy if you're running new speaker wire or if your speakers have oversized terminals.
The right tools will help keep your installation simple and clean.
If your stereo doesn't cut the deep bass from your full-range speakers, a set of bass blockers can help prevent distortion and give you cleaner bass too.
