Our take on the Kenwood Excelon XR-1800

by John Pollard
Kenwood

Why replace your factory 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.

Big, big woofers

Kenwood's Excelon XR-1800 speakers feature a huge 7" cone, packed into a frame that will still fit into the factory openings of many Dodge, GM, and Toyota vehicles (some cars may require slight modifications). A bigger cone moves more air, so your music can have the fullness and punch you don't get with most factory speakers. The woofer's advanced hybrid pulp cone stays rigid through heavy workouts to cut down on distortion and keep your bass sounding tight. The rubber surround resists weathering, providing reliable support that keeps your music playing, no matter what.

Huge tweeters

The large, 1-3/16" soft dome tweeters deliver all the high-frequency details smoothly, while special-design circuitry and powerful, lightweight magnets make these tweeters extremely accurate without sounding harsh. The bruisers handle up to 110 watts RMS, so you'll be impressed when you fire them up with a nice amp. Kenwood includes multi-purpose adapter brackets that help these big speakers fit in select vehicles. Grilles are included.

Highlights:

  • 2-way 7" speakers (pair)
  • brackets included for various OEM locations
  • advanced hybrid pulp woofer with rubber surround
  • 1-3/16" soft dome tweeter with neodymium magnet
  • fit into many Dodge, GM, and Toyota vehicles
  • power range: 6-110 watts RMS (330 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 57-20,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 86 dB
  • depth: 2-1/2"
  • warranty: 2 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee
