As if Kicker wasn't already stiff competition for any affordable car speaker, their DS-Series speakers once again raise the bar. In addition to providing excellent sound, these Kickers offer a thin profile that allows them to fit in more vehicles.
The 41DSC464 4"x6" speakers will give you clarity like you've never had with your factory speakers. The 2-way design recreates a dynamic sound, dedicating the highs to the PEI domed tweeter while sending the midrange and lows to the 4"x6" polypropylene woofer. The 41DSC464's highly sensitive design conjures hefty volume even from low-powered factory radios, so you can crank your tunes and keep 'em blasting the whole ride.

They are perfect for my truck and i would recommend them to anyone
Cons: None what so ever
Awesome speakers! Not a crazy upgrade, but much better than factory (from 1999) at a price you cant beat. Put these to replace my rear speakers and noticed an instant difference. Would definitely recommend these!
Pros: Great sound, Great Price!
Cons: Nothing yet
perfect replacemets, clean crisp sound, didnt realize how bad my factorys were
Pros: CHEAP, AWESOME SOUND,fit perfectly
Really disappointed with these speakers. The are muddy, flat and no where near as full sounding as others I have, for example, Pioneer.
Pros: Installation routine, includes wire & hardware
Cons: Poor quality sound, and of course, that's their purpose!
Great sounding speaker, better then the original. Easy install, great instructions 10 minutes per door
Pros: instructions for installation came with the speakers along with the connectors required, great package deal
Great speakers but service was awesome. Late night purchase and chat help was really appreciated. Only place I will buy my stuff.
Pros: Great fit. Great sound.
This was a great replacement from the factory speakers in my truck. You won't win any speaker comp's with a set of these, but the speakers work very well and are a great upgrade over stock. The high's are good, the low's are good, it's a mid level speaker and does the job very well. This was recommended by a buddy that has the higher end KS series, and Kicker has done a great job with this DS series line!!
Pros: Great speaker for the price, great sound, easy to install. Great mid-level speaker.
I installed the kicker 6.5's in the front and wanted matching speakers for behind the seats. They are just ok. Better than OEM but I probably would go with something different if I had to do it again.
Cons: Lack of bass but it's a small speaker and I'm not running them through an amp...
Easy install with wiring harness.
Pros: Cost & installation.
Cons: Sound isn't all that.
Great price Install instructions very clear.
Pros: Outstanding service From Crutchfield
These speakers are awesome!! I needed to replace the front speakers for my 1995 Jeep Wrangler. These did the trick, i should have done this many years ago,the Kickers have amazing clarity and ease of installation.
Can't beat the price on these. Not going to get alot of bass out of them but they sound great. Had them about a week and no issues. Install is quick and easy. Be sure to add the correct brackets and connections and you will have no problems
Picked these up to put in the dash of a $500 94 s10 I bought as a work beater. Mated them to a decent kenwood head unit. As usual with Crutchfield, they arrived quickly and with good is instructions and hardware. Speakers are clear but seem very bright. I am going to pick up some 6x9s for behind the seat to even things out and add a little lower end. I would recommend these speakers for the price.
Pros: Good fit. Good quality. Clear sound.
Cons: A little bright. But they are small speakers.
I needed to replace the speakers in my 2007 Kenworth T-800. I was having a hard time figuring out what would fit. So I tried Crutchfield. The advisor looked online (their find what fits feature doesn't include big trucks) he figured out what I needed. The new speakers fit and sound Much better than the stock paper cone speakers they replaced.
Pros: They fit. They sound great. Not to expensive.
Cons: Speakers - none. It was a little work getting the headliner down in my KW but only took about an hour to install the new speakers.
Sweet little factory replacement.
Pros: Easy and fast figment.
Cons: Expected slightly more clarity. Ya get what ya spend I guess.
The sound is better than factory speakers, easy to installed, & way to good for that price...
Pros: I didn't expect that perfect & clear sound for that price. The size & installed was no problem
Cons: No comment
I installed these in the rear doors of my Chevy extended cab. Crutchfield says they fit but they don't... I had to drill holes. Absolutely no bass and not much sound at all. The 13 year old factory speakers sound better. What a joke.
Cons: Price Quality Sound Installation
These are absolutely great for their size and price, great sound, easy install and fit perfect in my 1999 Jeep wrangler
These speakers are an excellent value for the price. Very easy to install, came with all the necessary hardware, and they sound exponentially better than the GM factory speakers. The installation instructions were simple, clear and accurate. I would recommend this product to anyone looking to upgrade speakers without breaking the bank.
Pros: They sound excellent and fit perfectly in an old Silverado.
Great sounding speaker for size.Only size that will fit in vehicle without major modifications.
Pros: Good sound,easy install
These speakers where suggested by a very knowledgeable salesman and once I had them installed the sound was phenomenal the difference between my stock speakers and these were night and day now can't wait to get the new receiver hooked up
Pros: Awesome sound less knob more volume better clarity
Great speakers to replace stock speakers in my 98 chevy. Everything you would expect from kicker.
Pros: Easy to install.
My recently acquired 96 blazer left a lot to be desired when it came to the stereo. I replaced the door speakers and that helped but I was truly surprised how much adding these 4x6 to the dash locations helped. I am after audio quality and not the bass. I have these faded a little until I get my next set of kicker 6.5" and my amp. For those of you wanting to put these in the dash of a comparable blazer, the mounting depth was just barely too deep to sit flush on the driver's side. I used some 5/16" nuts under the speaker to raise the speaker slightly. I also removed the extra plastic from the back side of the grills. I am using a Sony head unit with adjustable high and low pass crossovers built in. I can't say how these would sound on a stock stereo.
Pros: Excellent highs
outstanding & easy install
These fit perfectly with the provided free brackets in my 1997 Jeep Wrangler Sport. It adds to the sound bar overhead to make a complete and full quality sound. I am very happy with the fit and great sound of these Kicker speakers.
Pros: Great fit and full sound!
These things sound amazing they are worth double what there going for they have amazing bass response have have 2 of these in the back doors or my 99 Silverado and all my friends ask if I have subs
Pros: Great bass great sounds
I chose the kicker speaker to try and add some bass te a wrangler's.sound bar. They have been a improvement to system but my head unit needs more power to dri e them.
Pros: Perfect fit. Great look.
Not much you can do with 4x6 pillar speakers on my 97 K1500, but Kicker found a way. For such a small speaker, they really sound good. Gives good balance in the cab. I am impressed.
Pros: Great price, really good sound for such a small speaker. Easy install once you get to it (those who have changed them in an ext cab 97 silverado know)
Great upgrade for the price. Use these with just an aftermarket Pioneer head unit. I dont use an amp just the head unit pushes the speakers and the sound is good. Also have the 6-1/2 kicker in front doors. Overall two thumbs up if ur looking for a good sound and dont want to spend allot with adding a amp.
Pros: Great sound,affordable,good quality and name brand.
Cons: None so far
For the price, you can't go wrong with these. They were a replacement for the dash speakers on my 1994 Suburban, they fir perfectly. They sound great, but due to their size the lows aren't very deep. I'm very happy with them.
Pros: Price and fit.
Cons: Lows aren't very deep, but this is to be expected from a speaker this size.
While 4X6 speakers were never designed to sound great these are pityful. I actually adjusted fader control to remove most of the sound.
Cons: Sound is a joke. They choke on all but midrange frequencies
Nice sound and very easy to install with the included brackets and wiring adaptors in my Jeep wrangler
Great speaker for my TJ. The sound is good for mids and highs. Lows are weak but you shouldn't expect much from a small speaker. The install was a breeze and fit great Install probably took 5 minutes or less
Fits 2003 chevy s10 dash with some minor/quick adjustment for fit.
I was quite surprised with the sound quality of this speaker. I am not that familiar with car audio, however I can say that I noticed a distinct difference in the sound quality between this speaker and Kicker's "value" line of speakers. Crisp/clean sound is what I wanted and that's what I got.
Pros: Crisp/Clear sound even at high volume
Cons: Certainly needs to be paired with a larger speaker for more bass depth (obviously)
As a high school kid you love to have the loudest car and these speekers are so clear and vary easy to instal. My only thing is I wish I got a higher watt speeker
Pros: Clear, easy to instal, good bass, really fun to have
Cons: Not enuff watts
They were relatively easy to install, with plenty of trim bending and teeth grinding on my part, but after I got the in I wasn't very impressed. I bought these because they requested them to me, but the sound pretty tinny and flat. Not much different than the factory speakers. Maybe it's because I don't have a high end stereo. Plus they weren't that expensive.
Excellent speakers for the price. Very happy with my purchase. If you want a good fit you should purchase the speaker baffles, I'm glad I did. I ended up cutting a 2"X 2" hole in the bottom of the baffles so they were ported. In my opinion they sound much better. This is only my opinion though. Crutchfield is the only place I will purchase my car audio from. They are so helpful and will answer any questions you have. AAA+++ on customer service. Thanks again Crutchfield for another great experience. A piece of mind is priceless!!
sounds good with stock head unit
Pros: sounds good, looks good
Great factory replacement. Installed in my 2001 GMC Sierra EXT Cab. Great price and great sound!
This is a fantastic little speaker upgrade for the price.
Pros: At a great price this speaker added great sound to my vehicle for a good price. I'm extremely happy with this purchase
Cons: The only problem I had was that the magnet was a little bigger than the factory speaker and it didn't fit perfect into one cab corner, so I had to make some adjustments.
Bolted a RetroSound RC-900C head unit into my '78 Chevy PU to get an aux jack for iPod. Replaced 5.25" speakers in door kick panels I installed 25 years ago with Polk Audio DX691s - fabulous 6" x 9" 3-way speakers I got at a discount in Crutchfield's "Dents & Scratches" vs the original sticker price. Sound quality was wonderful, but opposite facing speakers produced a narrow sound stage that sounded like it came from the center of the windshield. (Same as with the 5.25s.) Anticipating this, I ran speaker wires to the area behind the seat. Bought the Kicker 4" x 6" speakers to fit into custom enclosures I designed and built that fit into the back corners of the cab behind the seat. 10" tall with a 45°/45°/90° triangular base. The hypotenuse (long side) of the triangle fits against the back of the cab. The speakers angle toward the center of the cab, and a wedge goes all the way back behind the door frame to the very back corner of the cab. Speakers are sealed and baffled with felt over rubber carpet padding - everything made from scrap on hand. Speakers have about 230 cu. in. interior volume - almost exactly the size of a gallon jug. Results: problem solved! Expectations exceeded! Sound stage now expands to feel bigger than the cab. The Kickers are peewees compared to the Polk 6" x 9" speakers, but they sound great and hold their own pumping out plenty of sound. Of course they can't match the low end of the 6x9's, but they don't need to. At the price I paid, they are a steal.
Pros: High quality for the price; For me, the right size for restricted space.
Cons: No protective grille provided - had to improvise my own.
Was very surprised on the sound and clarity of these replacement speakers. I put these in a 1989 Silverado and they were completely amazing for the affordable price tag.
Pros: Clean and powerful for a little package.
Great sound for the money. Paired with kicker 6 1/2s.
Cons: Definitely better speakers out there but not for this price.
The best sound and quality you can buy
Pros: Easy to install and. Sound great
Cons: Sound great
Good budget minded speaker, good upgrade from factory speakers. Very clean with little distortion.
Pros: Easy install
Cons: Would have liked a little more bass.
They sound great as loud as I want them, or as low as I want them. FOR SILVERADO OWNERS: The basket on these is as compact as any of the 4x6 speakers, but they will not fit in the space provided in the Silverado standard cab. They are slightly too big, and to install them without cutting the hole bigger (which would be a huge, huge hassle, you would have to just screw them in so tight that the frame would bend, which can't be good for the sound, and you'd have the sides of the cage pressed hard against the body of the car, which also can't be good for sound. Crutchfield really didn't have much to offer, but I had ordered the foam sound baffles for the speakers, and they provided just enough space between the back of the speaker frame and the body of the truck that it worked perfectly. So, make sure you order the baffles.
Pros: Sound great.
Cons: Don't really fit the Silverado, though it seems that nothing else would, either. The baffles act as a spacer, so get those and it will work fine.
Nice sound and easy to install.
Pros: Inexpensive, sound good.
Great services always ready to help
Pros: Easy install just had to drill 4 holes
Cons: Sound is ok thought there would be a little more base to them
Sounds great and excellent value!
Pros: Perfect fit and sound SO much better than the 18 yr. old stock speakers.
Cons: They are buried behind the ugly factory speaker grille at the back of the cab.
Very happy with my purchases from Crutchfield to replace all speakers in my 2005 chevy silverado. Speakers sound so much better now and were easy to install thanks to the Crutchfield team.
Pros: Great sound and price
Easy installation sounds better than I thought they would.
Pros: Sound good
Cons: Speaker wire needs more support.
Bought these speakers to replace the ones on the old 1998 CHEVY 1500 P/UP, I bought them because of the brand reputation and well the price as well. I removed the factory grille and speakers and also the truck has a bracket for them and I really thought it would be easy and installation would be perfect. For some reason or other they don't seem to fit in correctly, the speaker back end is a bit to big to fit in the bracket housing. Will have to trim the bracket housing to make the speakers fit in flush.
Pros: Great brand and sound and the price is great.
Cons: Had issues with fitting on the truck
nice sound, required only minor modification to install
Pros: nice sound, great price
Replacements for factory .good sound .
Pros: Good highs and decent bass. Good price
Improve the sound of my radio. Great speakers
Pros: Easy to install, great sound
Nice replacement speakers for the dash of my Jeep Wrangler.
Pros: Easy to install, decent sound quality.
Cons: Not very loud but better than factory.
i would tell my friend to buy them great sound
Pros: easy to put in and grant price
Replaced the dash speakers in a 2003 Wrangler. Major improvement. Great sound, great price.
Pros: Easy install, all parts included.
I recently replaced the original speakers in my '03 Silvarado extended cab. These went in the rear doors, along with the optional baffles.
Pros: Easy to install. Good price.
Cons: Don't sound any better than the originals when they were new.

they did not come with mounting spacers, but i think you can order some separate. i ended up just making some myself. [ Walker Jan 03, 2016 ]
I have a 2004 and the speakers mounted in the original holes with the hardware they provided [ DANIEL E. Jan 02, 2016 ]
Yes they fit perfectly [ DANIEL E. Nov 12, 2014 ]
If you get the correct mounting brackets to go with these speakers they will fit fine where the original dash speakers sit; however, I bought a new head unit with these speakers as well. They work great with my pioneer head unit but I never tried them with the factory stereo. Hope this helps [ Walker Nov 12, 2014 ]
Should have no problems James. [ Christian Nov 12, 2014 ]
I replaced the OEM speakers in my 2006 Peterbilt with these speakers. I didn't check the specs on the factory speakers, but I've been very pleased with the performance of this product. [ THOMAS Nov 12, 2014 ]
Yes. Better than 2 sets of previous speakers, including stock. [ Anthony Nov 11, 2014 ]
I wasn't sure about the stock being 5.9 but the 4 ohm sound good. [ craig Nov 11, 2014 ]
No idea....I bought mine as a direct replacement for the rear of my 03 ec Silverado. Don't know about the ohms....sorry [ Michael Nov 11, 2014 ]
