You set up your car for performance, so make sure you rev up your audio system too — with Kicker KS Series speakers! They're built from the ground up to put some serious kick into your sound.

The KS68 2-way 5"x7"/6"x8" speakers have high-performance polygraphite woofer cones, built to minimize cone flex for lower distortion. The woofers are built into Enhanced BAM (Basket and Motor) Assemblies, utilizing low-profile, high-strength steel baskets. Santoprene surrounds allow extended cone excursion — for the kind of solid suspension the woofers need to belt out the bass.

You'll enjoy imaging that sounds like you've got the best seat in the house, thanks to the Kaladex semi-dome tweeters' excellent sonic clarity and dispersion. The tweeters are ferro-fluid cooled to handle high-volume situations without overheating. These speakers are built with high-quality touches, like rugged polyimide film voice coil formers and high-power-handling tinsel leads. You'll enjoy the excellent performance for a long, long time! Grilles are not included. (Factory grilles are appropriate for most installations.)

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 Bang for the Buck

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

At first I was sceptical about how well these speakers would perform, but let me tell you they are nothing short of awesome. The bass comes in loud and strong and you dont lose any of the sound. The tweeter works great and all the high frequency sounds are delivered. With the crutchfield quides they were very easy to install. If your looking for a solid upgrade at a great price these are the speakers for you!

Great replacement for stock speakers!

Written By David Wied, Northern CA on Saturday, October 08, 2005

Purchased 2 sets of these speakers to replace my "premium" Mach system speakers in my Expedition. They sound crisp and clear with the Mach factory system. I upgraded to a new Sony CDX-M8815X CD/MP3 Receiver and the sound is awesome. If you still have a factory system, upgrade as soon as you can. The sound is so much better!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers have a clean crisp sound with good stereo imaging. I would recomend them if you want to upgrade from stock speakers. I got them at a great price 2nd pair for 1/2 price with a crutchfield sale. I replaced all 4 door speakers in my F150 and they sound great running off the stock head unit but I also have a Kicker 10" CVR dual voice coil sub that handles all the base with a bostwick amp so together they sound awsome, but if you want the full benefits you'll need an after market stereo with a higher RMS wattage rating or a nice 4x50w amp.

Get everything you’ll need to enjoy your new Kicker KS68

Reduce ambient road noise and your vehicle's "rattles," for better sound inside your car.
You'll need speaker wire to connect your speakers to your amp.
Keep your speakers clean and dry. They compress to fit behind your speakers.
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.
