Our take on the Kicker 09QS65.2

by Buck Pomerantz
Kicker

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.

The concert's in your car

Kicker's top-of-the-line QS65.2 component speaker system will make your music sound dynamic and alive in your car, almost like it does at a concert. The system's 6-3/4" woofer uses a heavy cast-aluminum frame and a sophisticated motor assembly to deliver impressive performance. Kicker sandwiches a stiff foam core between two layers of a woven carbon-polypropylene laminate to create a cone that's incredibly light and rigid, so this speaker can play every single note accurately, cleanly, and distinctly.

2-way with convertible tweeters

You can mount the QS Series 1-3/16" dome tweeter separately for superior sound imaging, or attach it "coaxially" in the woofer for a more convenient mounting solution. High-quality external 2-way crossovers manage the signal going to the tweeters and woofers and feature bi-amp capability — you can use separate amplifiers to run the woofers and tweeters for superior sonic control and power delivery. You can also adjust the overall tweeter impact with three selectable level settings.

Note: Kicker describes this model as a 6-1/2" woofer. Most manufacturers designate this same frame size as 6-3/4". For simplicity's sake we list it as a 6-3/4" woofer.

  • component speaker system includes two 6-3/4" woofers, 2 tweeters, 2 crossovers, and 2 woofer grilles
