Kicker 41DSC654

Here's the Kicker

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. 

Solid sound

The 41DSC654 6-1/2" 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 6-1/2" polypropylene woofer. The 41DSC654'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. Grilles included.


  • 2-way car speakers (pair)
  • 6-1/2" polypropylene woofer with ribbed polyester foam surround
  • 1/2" PEI domed tweeter
  • power range: 2-60 watts RMS (240 watts peak power)
  • frequency range: 40-20,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 90 dB
  • top-mount depth: 1-13/16"
  • impedance: 4 ohms
  • grilles included
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought these to replace blown stock speakers. They're a good upgrade from stock at a good price.

Pros: Price Sound quality

Cons: Not a perfect fit for the back doors of my 05 Colorado even with mounting brackets

Everything works great(kicker speakers)


Written By Matt, New York, ny on Monday, November 09, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not bad for the money. Used these in my 2010 jeep wrangler unlim. Better than stock, but they don't blow me away either. Good replacement if you completely blow out your factory speakers. Otherwise, a very minor upgrade. Not sure if I would buy again.

Pros: Nice bass. A bit too much.

Cons: Car vibrates more with these. The brake pedal vibrates when the speakers are turned up.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Pretty good speakers, not as loud and doesn't have as much bass as the factory speakers that came with my 2012 Ford Fiesta but from what I was told I would need a amp to get the full potential of these speakers. But It's not bad without the amp, I'm happy with them.


Written By SeanC, Texas on Tuesday, November 03, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers were very easy to install, and I was shocked at the sound quality after I turned on the stereo for the first time. Very clear, you can make out the highs and lows in the music, and plenty of base for most vehicles. I have a truck which has some road noise, and these speakers are very clear even on the highway.

Pros: Sound quality, volume, bass

Cons: none

I put these in the back doors of my 2015 Sierra double cab. The rear doesn't produce bass but the highs and mids are awesome. Big upgrade from factory. Crutchfield sent them pretty fast and free adapter plates. Can't beat that!

Pros: Very clear highs and mids

Cons: None so far

Awesome upgrade from factory.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First off I want to say Crutchfields is an awesome company and Shawn did a great job helping me find the right product for my car. I have a 2004 chevy trailblazer and swapping out the speakers was easy. I didn't even need to use the brackets. Wiring harness were easy and fit perfectly. The speakers are a definite upgrade and have a clean warm sound. Thanks Crutchfield!

Pros: Awesome sound Easy install

Cons: NA

Great for the money

Written By APR, Indiana on Saturday, October 24, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

At this price point, great speaker for the money. Provides great backfill in the rear of my Veloster Turbo. No crackles, pops, etc. Just clean sound.

These aren't bass bangers, but are perfect for the rear of your car, since 80% of the sound you are hearing while driving, its being dominated by your fronts. I can't say how good these are if they are in the front, because I normally buy component sets for that use.

Pros: Kicker coaxials always seem to sound good to my ears. vs pioneer/kenwood, which I can't hear as much midrange out of. I'm sure a lot of that is just due to the intricacies of speaker placement in cars and the varied forms of amplification. That said, I've never had a kicker speaker installed in my car that I didn't think was fantastic.

Cons: The cons revolve around the installation. Don't attempt this yourself on a veloster, unless you are a professional. Drilling out rivets, and removing seats has a lot of room for a variety of errors. Instead, buy from crutchfield and give the tech your instructions to work with, because he is going to need them. It took them 5 hours to do my car, and I was told that I should have been charged double because of the difficulties with changing the speakers.

Perfect Painless Upgrade.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed these in the mid-panel location on a 2010 Sienna minivan. They sound great compared to the stock speakers, especially with a new receiver (Pioneer AVH-4100NEX). The only glitches I encountered were with the adapter plate; the third hole to attach to the factory bracket did not line up properly, but I secured with with some improvisation and a drill, and the wiring adapter harness negative connector needs to be bent a little in order to fit over the Kicker spade connectors.

Pros: Great sound. Solid improvement over factory speakers. 15 minute job.

Cons: Some minor installation glitches.

What I wanted

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Upgraded from stock on an '09 Forester. After muuuch research, I ended up purchasing these Kickers. I was on a budget and didn't want to spend a ridiculous amount. I did my homework and found theses.. They exceed expectations; It's nice to hear crisp treble, and non-muddy bass. Recommended.

Pros: Sound oh so much better than stock.

Nice speakers for the money

Written By Patrick C., Mississippi on Wednesday, October 14, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Pretty decent speaker for the money - as another reviewer mentioned they need a week or so to 'break in' - I've had to adjust the eq. in my stereo a couple of times since the install to get the best response for my listening preferences - these speakers deliver excellent mid and crisp high frequency performance - bass is a little lacking for a Kicker brand, but they are only 6" speakers - however, the bass is acceptable for my ears...for now

Pros: Excellent cost for the quality Install was straightforward and without issue thanks to the free adaptor rings and wiring connectors

Cons: Bass response is slightly lacking, compared to the tired old fcty speakers they replaced, but acceptable

Written By Paulo, Hawaii on Sunday, October 11, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers are significantly better than the stock speakers that I had in my a scion xb. Only problem I had was with the installation instructions stating that I had to remove some screws from my back panel where I really had to remove some off-sized Allen screws. Luckily I had the tool or I would've been upset. Other than that, this is a great buy. Very much worth it.

Pros: Great speaker, easy install.

Cons: None.

Written By pt82, Indiana on Saturday, October 10, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've had these in my car for about a week. It was unknown to me when I bought my car, someone had put really crappy aftermarket speakers in. They didn't even do a good job installing them. (zip ties/duct tape) This is definitely an improvement over what was there and I am happy with my purchase. The sound is crisp and clear, and for just some speakers, the bass and midrange aren't bad either. Would definitely recommend these to a friend.

Pros: Good sound and bass easy to install comes with some hardware.

Cons: No Cons

The speakers sound very good. However, the base response is not as good as the original Infinity speakers that came with the 2002 Dodge Durango. Once I increased the Base on the equalizer, the balance was much better.

Pros: Fit well in 2002 Dodge Durango

Cons: Base response

Upgrade for 08 JK

Written By Jd259, Indianapolis, IN on Tuesday, September 29, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Used these to replace all 4 speakers in my 08 Jeep Wrangler JK. I wanted to retain my factory stereo and upgrade the speakers so I chatted with Abe and he recommended these. A huge difference over stock, I can now drive down the highway with the top and doors off and still hear my music, and it sounds great.

Excellent Replacement Speaker

Written By KPMcLean, Texas on Saturday, September 26, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I thought I loved the Massive Audio SX6 Slim Line I had installed back i December of 2011 but the KICKER DSC65 is quite exceptional. The Bass is tight the way I like to enjoy my music and so resonant and precise. They mate well with the 90db Pioneer TS-110 Tweeters I purchased a few years ago and has given me again the sparkling sound stage clarity that I've come to appreciate. Thanks again Crutchfield.

Pros: Precision and tightness of the mid-bass range

Cons: NONE

2012 Accord

Written By Craig, New York on Saturday, September 26, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Speakers work well. They are a big improvement to the sound of the stock system. They provide a definite brighter and clearer sound due to the coaxial design. Just using factory HU so bass is slightly lacking but that's why man invented sub-woofers. I bought these for the rear and front doors. They were simple to install, I ended up slightly modifying the the provided bracket by drilling out the main hole that the stock bolt goes in. I just counter sunk the hole for the stock bolt so it fit flush with the top of the bracket. The speakers now fit flush on top of the bracket and the speaker mount holes all lined up. I didn't need to drill any new hole into the metal frame/doors of the car as the provided instructions stated to do. This should work for most Honda speaker locations in 2006 and later models that use this mounting bracket design.

Pros: Compact design fit in the tight spaces. Perfect power output that match most stock HU's. Good price point. It's made by Kicker!

Cons: Would be nice to have low and high pass filter designed into the speaker so they are filtered to the tweeter and woofer.

There ok...

Written By Gremlin340, New Hampshire on Sunday, September 06, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very Nice upgrade to my '15 Mazda 3. While Crutchfield included mount adapters, if you're willing to spend a little extra time, you can actually remove the structure of the factory unit and re-use the OEM mounts with these speakers fitting perfectly on the surface of the OEM mount / speaker wiring connector!

Pros: Significantly improved bass response vs the OEM speakers

Kicker 41DSC654 - 2002 Dodge Ram 1500

Written By Danger, Kansas on Monday, August 31, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Replaced blown stock speakers in our 2002 Dodge Ram 1500. Of course these speakers sound much better, but at this price, they are really amazing! Since the original speakers were 5 1/4", we had to drill some new holes to mount these 6 1/2", but that was still very easy. For the price, you cannot go wrong with these speakers.

Pros: Very affordable, great sounding!

Cons: None

These replace two front speakers in my 2008 Lucerne which only worked on occasion when it was over 90 degrees out. Vast improvement but not a kickbutt sound system. Not much bass but rear, original speakers supply that somewhat by fading sound to the back.

Pros: They work fine. Not expensive.

Cons: Bass practically none existing.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The clarity and detail was an amazing upgrade over factory speakers right off the bat. But... They seemed empty and lacked bass. But once I dialed in the right settings and gave it a few weeks to break in, the bottom end really opened up, and the highs mellowed out.

Pros: Great clarity, great affordable upgrade from factory speakers.

Cons: Sounds harsh and lacks bass at first, but great once broken in.

Great for the price!
