Our take on the Kicker 41DSC684

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 41DSC684 6"x8" 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"x8" polypropylene woofer. The 41DSC684'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.

Features

Polypropylene Woofer Cones: The Kicker D-series speakers feature durable polypropylene woofer cones for their rigidity and light weight. Polypropylene is also resistant to moisture and high temperature extremes found in automotive applications.

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.

Mounting Applications: While Kicker describes this speaker as a 6x8, it also fits many 5x7 applications. Please check the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to confirm fit.

Great sound for the price

Written By flbiker, Land O Lakes, FL on Wednesday, October 08, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Was surprisingly pleased by the quality of the sound for these speakers at the price. Very much an improvement over the factory speakers. Would like a little more bass but with the subs I have it's not that imperative.
Pros:
Great sound. Easy install.
Cons:
None so far.

I almost bought a similar pair of speaker from Pioneer, I have Pioneer in my other car. But found these online and I have never been disappointed by Kicker. These things are AWESOME! I replaced all 4 of my door speaker with this model and I could not be happier! The sound is much better the competitors speaker that I was going to purchase. A Great sound at a GREAT value!

Kicker 31DSC684

Written By Bob V, Washington State on Friday, September 12, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Just installed two sets, front and rear, in my "04 Ford F-150 Super Cab. Had a bad rear speaker drivers side and could not fully use the attributes of the JVC KW R900BT head unit that I installed a while ago. The high and low tones are so much improved; sharper and stronger. I reset the sound settings in the JVC and these speakers handle it very well. We all know the factory "paper" speakers are poop and this upgrade for just over a hundred bucks makes a world of difference. Played a few jazz CD's and the Coldplay CD Ghost Stories - wonderful sound. Couldn't tell much difference with FM stations though, I only listened for a short time.
Pros:
These are a two-way speakers and the stronger high and low tones as compared to the factory installed speaker are worlds apart. The cost, at a nickel shy of $60.00 for two units is a reasonable market price. Crutchfield sent along the proper adapter cables that are compatible with the Ford wiring system.
Cons:
Just installed them early today - no know "Cons" at this date.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
They sound much better than the Infinity speakers I had on my F-350. Highs are crisper and lows are lower than the Infinity 6x8's.

Only drawback is that on one speaker, one tweeter wire was not soldered correctly (or had come off) on the speaker terminal. Nothing 2 mins and my soldering station couldn't fix.
Cons:

Awesome

Written By cauliflower93, Jeffersonville, IN on Monday, April 28, 2014
 
These speakers that i have purchased are simply amazing. Sound quality was big factor when choosing door speakers for my Mercury Grand Marquis. I havent had any problems with the kicker whatsoever. I would definitely recommend these speakers to anybody who likes good some with not too much bass. Honeslty, i think my speakers could competitive. Dont plan on changing these little guys anytime soon!!!
