Our take on the Kicker 41DSC54

by Alexander Hrabe
Kicker

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.

Here's the Kicker

As if Kicker wasn't already stiff competition for any affordable car speaker, their D-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. 

Solid sound

The 41DSC54 5-1/4" 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 5-1/4" polypropylene woofer. The 41DSC54'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.

Ribbed Polyester Foam Surrounds: The ribbed polyester foam surrounds allow extended cone excursion for additional bass output and higher SPL.

1/2" PEI Balanced-dome Tweeters: The 1/2" PEI balanced-dome tweeters provide a smooth high frequency response with quick, detailed and spatially-correct imaging. PEI is an acronym for polyetherimide. The tweeters have strong neodymium magnets for higher power handling.

Great upgrade

Written By Hutton510, Oakland,Ca on Monday, July 21, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Put these in my silverado 99' regular cab with the wiring harness and door fitment adapter Crutchfield sent free of charge and it fit perfectly. I don't have an aftermarket stereo receiver in yet, but I know it will sound better than they already do. The bass is still distorted slightly when turned past the middle on my oem stereo but it is no where near as distorted as the oem speakers. Once I get the stereo I know my speakers will be crystal clear. I unplugged the factory tweeters because they do not turn on since the speakers come with one. Overall it is a great speaker and am glad I purchased
Pros:
Clarity and loud
Cons:
distorted bass with factory radio in 99 silverado

Great little speaker

Written By Mike, Marion, MA on Monday, July 21, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Installed these in the rear doors of a 2014 Tundra DC, came with the required adapter and a wiring harness. The adapter and cables made the installation very easy. To optimize performance I peeled off the foam seals from the factory speakers so that the new hardware would be properly sealed to the door and the speaker sealed to the adapter. This seems to make a significant difference in the sound quality. The speakers are small so you can't expect big bass, the sound quality is very good and they are much better than the factory speakers. The improvement was very noticeable even with the factory head unit.
Pros:
Great sound for the money!
Cons:
All these kits would benefit from having new sealing foam in the kits to ensure that the assemblies are sealed like the factory components.

Great OEM Replacement

Written By ABBKAB, Harpers Ferry WV on Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Installed these in a 2003 Ford F150. Had previously upgraded the head unit and front speakers so these went in the rear. Super easy install following the included instructions (less than an hour for both). I'm sure there are much better sounding speakers out there, but for the money these sound great to me. My truck is a 12 year old work truck so I wasn't looking for anything fancy. For less than $200.00 I've upgraded the head unit and all 4 speakers all from Crutchfield. Couldn't be happier.
Pros:
Great sound for the price.
Cons:
None

Crisp, Clear , and I hate to say cheap but these were awesome for the price. Beats the heck out of some Polk speakers the replaced for a fraction of the price.
Pros:
Crisp & clear sound
Cons:
Needs a bit more power (via amp) to be perfect.

Replacing OEM JBL speakers on Tundra

Written By Drew, Lawton OK on Friday, May 23, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers are excellent quality. I used these as a replacement for the OEM JBL premium sound on my 08' tundra. They went in in about 15 minutes per speaker with all necessary hardware supplied.
Pros:
Quality speaker, great price, great sound, complete install kit included right down to the connectors and bracket. Perfect retrofit. Saved me $500. The OEM speaker was $350+ per speaker!
Cons:
4ohms mean these aren't quite balanced with the factory system. (But if I wasn't expecting this I might not have noticed to be honest.)
