Superb sound, built to last

Kicker's KM6204W 6-1/2" marine speakers bring powerful performance and subtle styling to your boat. These 4-ohm speakers are equipped with classic white grilles that blend beautifully into your boat's interior. They're also built to last, with sealed motors, cones, and locking terminal covers that keep the water away from the important stuff inside. A special UV treatment on the cones, surrounds, baskets, and grilles helps protect the exterior from punishing sunlight. Whether you're cruising in fresh water or salt, these speakers will sound – and look -- great for years to come.

You'll be impressed by the sound, too, as Kicker's MAXBasket Geometry packs an oversized woofer into a compact basket for an easy fit into tight bulkheads. Durable 3/4" balanced dome tweeters mounted flush in the grilles give you clear highs that slice through the ambient noise that's part of a day on the water.

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

Features

Marine-Ready: The Kicker KM6204 Marine Coaxial Speakers are engineered to meet or exceed industry standards for environmental humidity and corrosion (ASTM B117 200 hour Salt Fog Test), and for material degradation due to UV exposure (ASTM G154 400 hour Accelerated UV Test). The speakers feature sealed motors, cones, and locking wire terminal covers. UV treatments on the cones, surrounds, baskets, and grilles help them last in freshwater or saltwater environments.

MAXBasket Geometry: The speakers are engineered using Kicker's MAXBasket Geometry, meaning an oversized, louder 6.5" cone performs in a speaker basket designed for a smaller 5" cutout.

Woofer Cone: The injection-molded polypropylene cones have UV, pollution, and moisture resistance. For increased durability, they use Santoprene rubber surrounds.

Integrated Grilles: The KM6204s come with a water-resistant, bolt-through, high-impact plastic grille with the 3/4" titanium-domed tweeter permanently mounted in the center of the grille. Note: The grilles are not designed to be removed.

Magnetic Shielding: The motor structures are magnetically shielded, minimizing compass and gauge deviation in your dash.

Terminal Cover: The speakers feature splash and spray resistant, locking terminal covers. These covers have water-resistant gaskets to prevent terminal corrosion and electrical shorting.

Stainless Steel Hardware: The provided hardware is forged from corrosion-proof 316L stainless steel.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers were a great investment. We replaced some older Sony speakers, and there's no comparison. Twice as loud and the great bass were getting is impressive.

Pros: Loud, Clear Sound, Great Price

Cons: None

Good value well made

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Ordered these for pontoon boat and they sound really good. Bass is a little less than desired but I'm pretty sure that's because the deck feeding them is on the under powered side. Well made and they seem very tough. Check uour enclosure measurements because the magnets are much larger in these than the speakers that were replaced. Over all pleased and plan on ordering 2 more for boat.

Pros: Well made, highs and miss are very nice.

Cons: None
