Our take on the Kenwood KFC-ST01

by John Pollard
Kenwood

Raise the soundstage

A pair of Kenwood's KFC-ST01 balanced dome tweeters can make a big improvement in your system's soundstage. The balanced dome design offers wide dispersion for excellent imaging, and this 1" polyetherimide tweeter can handle up to 40 watts RMS. Kenwood includes in-line high-pass filters that maintain the high-efficiency, low-distortion output. Install these tweeters in a good spot, and you'll hear your system come alive with new details.

Kenwood KFC-ST01

Written By Anonymous, payson, arizona on Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These Kenwood tweeters have brought life back to my worn out system, they are really clear and the sound output is fantastic.
Pros:
Easy to install, great sound output, and they are a fairly cheap way to make your system come alive.
Cons:
Absolutely none so far.

Kenwood tweeters

Written By SteveR, Warwick, RI on Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Despite a recent full Crutchfield radio and sub-woofer amp and 5 speaker upgrade to my Jeep TJ it still lacked a crisp ear level punch. Incorporating these Kenwoods into the mix solved that dramaticly! Quick and easy eye level mount on the A pillar plastic trim and wired quickly to my front speaker with th supplied mounting and wire kit and the high freq sonic void eliminated! Install pic's of these and other components to be posted soon. Great deal for the low cost in this particular case and I recommend a set for all Jeep owners...
Pros:
Easy to install and integrate into your system. Good crisp highs..
Cons:
Supplied wiring kit not compatible in this application. Required crimp connectors or hand soldered as the best method.

Good tweeters

Written By Tiny, San Jose, CA on Saturday, May 03, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I admit that the time and frustration these caused me were due to my blatant lack of knowledge about speakers in general. I thought all speakers were the same and that it didn't matter what they run off. Boy was I wrong, for starters these tweeters look really nice, they feel pretty good quality and the install took me about 20 minutes per. The sound is good but it would be better if I had known they ran 40 rms, I have them powered by my HU which only puts 22 rms out. So if I had them working off and amp the sound would be great.

Don't waste your money on any other tweeters than these. I paired them with my 6x9 side speakers and 4" front ken woods and the crisp clarity from them are excellent. My neighbors will def come to hate me!
Pros:
Clarity!!! Easy to mount anywhere

Install was easy. I mounted them on the B pillar of a Ford F-150 crew cab. The sound is great you just have to spend some time getting the X-over point right.
Pros:
Easy installation. Good sound.
Cons:
Takes some time to get the best sound out of them.
