Our take on the Kenwood Excelon XR-1800P

by John Pollard
Kenwood

Why install component speakers?

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.

Big, big woofers

Kenwood's Excelon XR-1800P component speaker system features a huge 7" woofer, 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 hear 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

Separate 1-3/16" soft dome tweeters deliver all the high-frequency details smoothly, while external crossovers 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 the woofers fit in select vehicles.  Grilles are included.

Highlights:

  • component speaker system includes 2 woofers, 2 tweeters, and 2 crossovers
  • brackets included for various OEM locations
  • 7" advanced hybrid pulp woofer with rubber surround
  • 1-3/16" soft dome tweeter with neodymium magnet

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Features

Woofers: The woofers are oversized for a fuller sound quality than typical factory speakers. The hybrid pulp/polypropylene cones and rubber surrounds are durable and designed to withstand the harsh automotive environment.

Custom Brackets: The XR1800P woofers are designed as factory replacement speakers and include adapters compatible with many GM, Toyota, and Dodge vehicles (one bracket adapts to a 6x9 opening, the other is a multi-purpose bracket and is scored for trimming to fit several applications). Please refer to the Crutchfield Car Selector to confirm fit for your vehicle.

Crossover: Each crossover has screw terminal inputs and outputs that will accommodate bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.315" wide. The output level of the tweeters is adjustable; choose 0 dB, -2 dB, or -4 dB.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Length: 4.567" (plus wiring)
  • Height: 1.325"
  • Width: 2.6"

Tweeter Mounting Options: The tweeters can be flush mounted using the supplied hardware, or surface mounted using the included housings. Once mounted the tweeters have these dimensions:

  Flush Mount Angled Surface Mount
Mounting Depth 0.71" 0.4" (screw depth)
Mounting Height 0.426" 2.058"
Cutout Diameter 1.767" N/A
Frame Diameter 2.081" N/A
Frame Length N/A 2.125"
Frame Width N/A 2.081"

Warranty Note: Although the information included with these speakers indicates a 1-year warranty, they are actually covered by the Kenwood eXcelon 2-year warranty.

1 question already asked

I have a 2001 MR2 Spyder with a stock sound system. I was hoping to replace the stock door speakers with these but got a "Does not fit" warning. Can you tell me which part of this speaker system does not fit? If it's the tweeters, I can cut a larger hole for them. If it's the drivers then I'll have to look for something else. Thanks.
