6x9 Kickers really kick
2001 Chevrolet Cavalier
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
These 6x9 three way speakers were the perfect upgrade for my son's Cavalier. After ordering them, we found out the car actually had the factory Monsoon system with a malfunctioned amp. We could not use the adapter for the factory harness adapter that came with the speakers. Customer Service promptly provided the alternate connection for the adapter harness. When that didn't work likely due to the original hardware problem, we ended up running new Monster cable to hook them up to the new JVC receiver. The speakers were screwed down to the metal deck rather than using the flimsy plastic factory mount with broken plastic clips. This allows these speakers to play at any volume with no rattles from the speakers or the car itself. They can handle the power cleanly and have turned the car into a solid rock box. In addition, the grilles were mounted on the rear deck covering separately from the speakers to dress up the installation further. It was not required but it makes it looks so much better with none of the factory particle board blocking the sound or view of the speakers.
Pros: These speakers make the most of the internal amp of a receiver.
Cons: None seen so far.
