Kenwood Excelon XR-1800P

Overview

Our take on the Kenwood Excelon XR-1800P

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.

Big, big woofers

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.

Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

These speakers rock. Although in order to get them going I had an external amp put in and a new stereo. The instructions that crutchfield provided only helped a little when I tried installing them myself.

I was looking to upgrade my 2 front door speakers they lacked bass And clarity , was recommended to get these. Overall a great speaker. my car calls for 6.5 inch speaker but made it work with the 7 inch. havent even hooked up the amp and it already sounds 50x better. i will be using kenwood xr400-4. small and sleek. very pleased!!

Pros: great bass clear highs and mids

Cons: a little pricey but worth the money

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers rock. Although in order to get them going I had an external amp put in and a new stereo. The instructions that crutchfield provided only helped a little when I tried installing them myself.

Pros: Excellent bass (shakes my rear view mirror), very clear audio

Cons: Instructions didn't help and you need an amp to pump up the power to them.

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:

Mounting Height 0.426" 2.058"
