Item #: 20641KS354
These KS Series speakers are some of the most installation-friendly Kicker speakers yet. These low-profile speakers feature a reduced mounting depth, making them a match for almost any car.
While the low profile is an elegant asset, you'll find the real beauty of Kicker's KS Series speakers inside. The 41KSC354's highly sensitive design conjures hefty volume even from low-powered factory radios. So, you'll be able to enjoy every bit of their performance, starting with the surprisingly full sound of the 3-1/2" polypropylene woofer and its powerful magnet. You'll also hear subtle vocal and instrumental details from the silk balanced dome tweeter, giving your music a dimension that factory speakers just can't manage.
Sounds very good with bass blockers.
Mike, North Liberty IA
Sounds very good with bass blockers.
Pros: Clear highs with bass blockers.
I just installed these in the dash of my 2015 Camry. The installation was pretty easy and they fit without a problem. I used a 400Hz bass blocker which I highly recommend. These speakers sound really smooth and articulate. They create a really noticeable stereo effect. The highs are not brittle and it was easy to balance them with the remaining stock speakers. For the price, it's a no brainer!
Pros: Good sound, easy installation.
Great sound perfect fit
I bought these for my 97 Jeep Cherokee, I have relocated the speakers in the front dash pieces because I plan to run the XJ doorless which will replace factory speaker location in the doors.
Pros: Great sound, when adjusted with the head unit, good midrange and low sound
Cons: Did no include grills
Just installed these into the dash on my diesel Ram. Its a night and day difference over the anemic stock speakers even running off of the stock headunit. The clarity and clear highs is immediately noticeable. I listen to a good variety of music from Pantera and Slayer to Charlie Daniels, Jason Aldean and everything in between. These keep up very well even at higher volume.
Pros: Excellent Clarity and fit
Cons: Doesn't come with any sort of low frequency bass blocker. In a custom install with a crossover and amp this isn't an issue. However running on a stock headunit it sends the full range of music to them and such a small speaker will struggle and distort with low frequencies.
I just finished installing these speakers and I am very impressed with the sound. I also used the 300Hz Bass Blockers on the advice from a Crutchfield tech. He was dead on, I tried them with and without the Bass Blockers and I'm happy I bought them. I don't think these speakers handle bass very well, without the Bass Blockers they sounded a little fuzzy.
Pros: Great sound, easy install
Cons: Bass Blockers are needed
Without question the best 3.5 inch speaker you can buy for vehicle. Incredible clarity and highs, and just the right amount of base and mid range produced I've run many different brands and this one is my favorite and I continue to buy them for every vehicle I put them in. You won't be disappointed!
Extremely easy to install (and this was my first speaker install ever). Great sound from these little speakers.
Kicker dash speakers are great!! Makes the sound so crisp and clear!!! Glad I purchased them!
Pros: Fits perfectly and the cost was good
Huge sound improvement from stock speakers on a factory Head Unit. IMO still needs an amp for my liking. None the less still love them.
Great speakers at a more than fair price, fast shipping
Great sound crisp clear sound surpisingly good mids also
Cons: No cons
Tight fit in the dash corners, but sound great.
I can't believe how great these sound in the dash of my 2012 Camry. Very impressive.
Fits great in the jeep renegade. Perfect sound for the highs that were missing in the 9 speaker setup! Now I need more speakers for bass.
Pros: Fitment, sound, shallow
Excellent upgrade from the factory speakers.
Pros: Great sound. Great price. Excellent customer service.
Opted to add dash speakers instead of replacing the speakers behind the seats in my 2008 single cab Ram. So glad I did. Still using the factory head unit I was a little concerned because when faded to rear speakers you could barely hear them. Upon tapping into the rear speaker leads and having the sound eminate basically right in your face it was just the opposite. I now have to fade them out some as not to overpower the recently installed Polk audio db651s in the front doors. Awesome soundstage and prescence.
Pros: Soundstage and clarity
very nice product. sounds better than the factory dash speakers. still need something in the doors. wiring kit was a big help. thank you
Pros: better highs install was a breeze
These are great speakers, lots of sound from a small speaker
Pros: great speakers
Installed a pair of these speakers in my 2012 Toyota Camry. Great speakers. Big thanks to Mike form Tech Support with clearing up my question on how to splice the dash speaker wires. Took no time to install. Highly recommend.
Got these to replace the stock 3 1/2" speakers in the dash location of my 2005 Dodge Magnum RT. Perfect fit. No drama installation. Crutchfield says they will not fit but that is incorrect. Because of this, you will not get any installation instructions. But just Google "LX FORUMS" to get all the wiring, panel removal and install details that you need. Read it. Comprehend?? Execute. Piece of pie! Like I said, They fit perfectly! The dimensions of the stock speakers and these Kicker's are almost exactly the same. Awesome sound!! These suckers placed the sound stage EXACTLY where it is supposed to be. The mid-range is excellent! 1/2" tweeters a little harsh as volume increases. Forget the bass! These are way too small. That is not their job! You need to install INLINE CROSSOVERS to prevent instantly nuking these things. I hooked these up to the factory amp. Man, they sounded really good! Great upgrade for a factory system or driven off your receiver. However, that 50 watts RMS might be a bit optimistic. I installed inline crossovers (High pass at 300 hertz) but they still got hit with frequencies that they cannot handle. Now they sound "scratchy" at low volume (mid to high volume will cover this up). DO NOT HOOK THESE UP TO ANY GOOD EXTERNAL AMPLIFIER!! They will get destroyed! Unless you have both active and passive crossovers to provide them maximum protection from lower notes. But if they fit your needs, I say BUY IT!!
Pros: Great sound! Easy installation (if you are willing to use the Internet to LEARN!)
Cons: NEEDS CROSSOVER PROTECTION (that should be common knowledge_not really a Con). you will need additional tweeters to round out the sound if you plan on going loco! They provide excellent mid range!! Bass is not their thing (they are only 3 1/2 inch speakers!) 1/2' silk tweeters sound really good but their size (or lack thereof) limits their performance. common sense (does not come with the speakers). Enjoy your improved sound!!
Great sounding replacement speakers
Pros: Sound quality
Cons: None yet
Nice clear tweeter range for dashboard speakers.
Pros: Well built - chrome tweeter dome looks good behind the dash grills.
These 3/12" Kickers were a tremendous improvement for the Jeep Renegade. The highs and kids they produce are clearance loud.
So easy to switch out and install. They fit perfect and the instructions guide u but u really don't need them
Pros: Affordable and amazing sound
Cons: Can damage connections if not careful
These were an awesome upgrade from the stock speakers. You can tell the difference in the mid range for sure, and the tweeter has a much cleaner sound.
Pros: Fast and easy install with the wiring harness adapters for my truck.
Cons: No cons for Kicker, but no applause for dodge for making the front bolts (Closest to the windshield) hard for fat fingers. I could not find my 1/4" ratchet to make this faster than the the 10 minutes it took to replace both speakers.
Work and fit great in dash of 2014 Ram 1500. Get them in scratch and dent to save more money.
Pros: Easy fit.
Got these to replace the factory speakers in my 2013 Ram 1500. Installation was a breeze especially since crutchfield includes the wiring harness, it would be very difficult with out it. The sound is night and day, can't go wrong with these at that price point.
Great speaker, installed in 2000 SAAB 93 covertable. Fit like a glove, took less than 45 minutes to install both speakers. Tremendous sound difference I'm glad I did this.
Nice speakers for the money. Swapped them for the dash speakers on my RAM 1500.
Pros: Price and quality construction.
Cons: 4ohm vs 2ohm to match my system.
Great little speakers. Very pleased.
Pros: Easy to install.
Huge upgrade over factory at low cost. Well worth the purchase price.
Cons: Only sold in pairs and I need 3.
replaced my old blown monoprice 3 inch speakers with these 3.5 inches. Had to make a couple of mods to the monoprice satellite speaker boxes but it was well worth it. This little speakers pack a punch, I listen to Pandora and watch cinema blue rays. I bought 4 speakers to replace all the 4 satellite speakers on my 5.1 Monoprice premium speaker purchase that is 2 years old. By the way my 8 inch Monoprice power subwoofer was also replaced with a 10 kicker sub so its got some really deep boom..
Pros: i can turn it up my 5.1 theater system and the 3.5 speakers can handle it with no problem
Cons: i should of bought these a long time ago
Never thought about buying Kicker products, I've been a JL Audio and Alpine guy forever, the Crutchfield team really helped me, I was not replacing the stock HU and wanted much better sound. And I got what I wanted. these sound great. When you see what is actually in the dash stock it is disturbing. All the reviews I read , and I read so many it was nauseating, never said that my truck had 2 dash speakers. It had 3. Well there were only , 2. and they are 8 ohm speakers ( all reviews I read on this subject said all the speakers in the ram 1500 are 2 ohm. Including Crutchfield techs said they were 2 ohm. Guess you have to only take reviews with a grain of salt. Also the crossover is built into the stock speaker, so when you replace them they run full range. Surprising how much clean sound is produced by these little 3.5" speakers. Hope I don't blow them out. They sound very clean and I can hear a lot of detail.. Highly recommended.
Pros: Detail, they even create a phantom center channel the imaging is so dead on. They work very hard without distortion at full range.
Cons: Afraid I may blow them.
I installed the 3 1/2" speakers in my 2013 Chevrolet Traverse LT. It didn't come with the 10 speaker Bose system and therefore the back (third row) seat didn't have any speakers installed for that area. I ordered the optional speaker grill covers for my vehicle and installed these 3.5" speakers. They fit perfectly and sound great.
Pros: Great sound and affordable price.
Instant upgrade. 2007 Toyota Tundra swapped out JBL system for high quality amplified front,rear, and subs a long time ago. Had stock center channel which always sounded bright. Never bothered to change it until I was researching speakers for my kids' car. Decided to try this and use the other speaker in his car. After replacing the old speaker with this one, the sound stage has totally changed (I added a bass blocker). The vocal clarity and accuracy is far superior to stock speaker. Sounds so much better. It's almost as if it draws in the tweeters from the door pillars. Easy, cheap upgrade. Instant impact using as a center channel speaker. Very pleased. I did not have to modify my speaker grill or any part of the dash. Screw hole mounts were about a mm off but I made it work without stripping the screw retainers.
Pros: Easy simple upgrade, accurate sound
Must-do-upgrade for RAM Dash speakers. Kicker dash speakers boost mid-high range frequencies; improving clarity in music other media.
Pros: Exact fitment, boost mid-high range frequencies, larger magnet, improved speaker material over OEM.
Very nice sounding speaker, with good tweeters. I installed these in the front dash of my 2012 Ram 1500 and I'm glad that I did, they added a lot of sound for a 3 1/2" speaker and the tweeters in the KS series sound very good.
Pros: Nice clean sound with quality tweeter at an affordable price.
Outstanding sound from a 3 1/2 speaker to complete my mid and highs with my Kicker 6x9 in the rear door, and 6 1/2 Kicker in the front doors in my 2012 Ram 2500
Pros: Simple to replace the stock speakers with the added factory wiring harness that was included for free, outstanding sound
After less than stellar performance from my factory speakers, it was time for a change. I've got a '13 Ram regular cab with the UConnect 5.0 stereo non Alpine system. These went in the dash with absolutely no problems. With the included harness adapters, installation was a breeze. The sound is great, no more muddy highs. I listen to a lot of different genres of music. From SLAYER to Beanie Man, Mumford & Sons to El Kommander. These speakers alone changed my sound stage for the better. After a week of playing these speakers I've upgraded my rear speakers also (KSC694).
Pros: Exact fit, fastest installation ever.
Cons: I didn't get them sooner
Wanted more clarity and highs on my factory alpine system so i went with these. What a difference they make...system sounds warmer and richer. Drop in installation with no hassle. Literally a 10 minute job and this was my first time.
Talk about a dash speaker replacement. This is it right here. The clarity is great and it is not too high pitched either. 10/10 would buy again.
Awesome replacement for the dash speaker in my 2013 dart. Went with what another reviewer said and got the bass blockers for this to prevent them from being overpowered by the bass.
Pros: Quick easy install
Cons: The Metra adapters that came with them had to be modified a little bit to use with the bass blockers.
Sounds amazing in 2013 ram 1500 dash
2015 Dodge Ram 1500 - Upgraded the stock dash speakers. This was a huge improvement over the stock speakers. Very easy install and the included wire harness made it a snap. Remember, these are only small dash speakers, so you won't get huge sound, but way better than what is in the stock Ram.
Pros: Easy install, great sound for a dash speaker.
Cons: None at this price range.
Works well. Good sound, no amp just pioneer head unit.
Pros: Good price good sound
Used the Infinity Kappa series. These are very close in performance yet less than half the cost. . Would recommend.
Great speakers for the price
Fit was snug but works and sounds great!
Great little speakers for the money, kicker always puts out great products.
Pros: Super loud, great highs.
Cons: No bass or mid, tweeter pertrudes from speaker and it made it hard to install in my Monte Carlo.
In the Dash of a Dodge 2010 Ram 1500 I didn't think that these would do such a good job of making it as an addition to my KICKER 6.25" front door and KICKER 6X9 back door speakers. These are the great filler I was looking for and can crank it just as well. The Kenwood head deck I have makes all six speakers throughout the cab of my truck sound Amazing! Can't Go Wrong!
Pros: Kicking Awesome!
really bright sound from these little guys . be careful not to overdrive them
Pros: great highs bright sound
Cons: fragile with wattage
Good sounding speakers??
Great speakers for the money. Loud and crisp sound.
Great dash replacement in my 2014 Ram 2500
Pros: Free supplied wiring plugs
The speakers sound great and were used to replace the small speakers in the D pillars in my 2004 Chevy Suburban. The speakers were slightly larger than the original speakers but with some slight modifications (no cutting of metal) they were an excellent fit and they sound great for those sitting in the 3rd row of seating. I am very happy with my purchase and Crutchfield added the GM wiring harnesses at no cost making the choice of buying from Crutchfield even better.
Pros: Excellent sound Fit the D pillars in my 2014 Chevy Suburban
I installed these in the dash of a 2014 Ram 1500 along with 300 Hz bass blockers. I also installed Kicker 41KSC694 6x9s in the rear doors and Kicker 40CS654 6.5s in the front doors. I installed the bass blockers to eliminate any possible distortion from lows with these small speakers. These were the first I installed in the six speaker change and the difference from stock was simply amazing. I would recommend these for anybody wanting to improve their stock setup.
Pros: Low cost and great sound.
Easy install in my ram. Fit perfect. Great sound.
Replaced stock speakers with the new Kickers and what a big difference. The sound quality is excellent and makes a huge upgrade to what I have already done. Very pleased.
Pros: Very easy to replace. Took about 20 minutes from start to finish.
These change he whole sound quality of my ram. I'm going to end up changing my door speakers to equal out the sound. Installation took 10 mins
Had to replace one after install,called Crutchfield and They sent another pair out. Will do another review in a week or 2.
Pros: Have great sound.
Cons: Do not know yet,just getting the second pair installed.
My 23 year old Miata headrest speakers finally died. When I installed these the sound improvement was very good. The old speakers had completely separated from the frames and the sound was always bearable, didn't realize the were dying. Would recommend these for any Miata headrest replacement for good sound at a reasonable price.
Pros: Really like the sound improvement. Fit was tight but cavities only needed slight knife work speakers to fit. Fit was so tight no mounting screws were used. Would buy these again.
Very clear & bright speakers. What an improvement over the stock 2014 Ram 1500 speakers.
Pros: Easiest speaker install I have ever had.
Great speakers, easy to install with supplied harness and minting brackets. Sound good for a small in dash speaker.
Pros: Easy to install, sound good, affordable
Exactly what I wanted and was expecting , price was same as few others, but couldn't pick up locally and here shipping was faster than others
Pros: Very nice upgrade from factory Never have had problem with kicker products and I've been using them since late 80's
Cons: None, maybe price could've been little better but was ok with it at the same time
Great replacement from stock! Nice cleans crisp sound.
Pros: Easy install
Installed on my 2014 ram 1500 r/t and they sound good for the price. Better than the factory ones. Just need some time for them to break in and will sound better. Love the adapter that Crutchfield included with the purchase. Makes installation quick and easy.
Pros: Nice tweet. Not too bulky
Great sound out of little speakers!!! 100% better than the factory Bose speaker. Crutchfield's install instructions were very useful.
Bought these for my 1985 Chevy K20. Great product these little speakers are very clear and loud for their size. They came with brackets and super easy to install. Nice crisp sound for the price
Pros: price, coming with brackets and sound quality
These little speakers are very clear and loud for their size. I got them to put up under the dash of my 1971 Jeep CJ-5 and they work and sound great. I am very impressed with these speakers so far, I just hope they hold up to the abusive ride of my Jeep.
Pros: Very clear, good price
Sounds nice and clear. A great upgrade over factory
Very clear, which is amazing from such a tiny speaker. They even have a little punch with the mids. Very impressed. They sound great in my 1988 MR2, and fit in the B Pillar just fine to replace the disintegrated factory speakers. Install note for fellow AW11 MR2 owners: You will have a choice to make when installing these. Either drill a hole in your B Pillar, Mount the speakers with only one of the factory bolts, or make a custom speaker mounting dock for them. I mounted them temporarily using the top bolt on both sides until I can come up with a custom solution, and there is no rattle or abnormal noise from them, and I have a fairly stiff set of coilovers giving them every excuse to rattle around.
Pros: Highs are very clear Mids are surprisingly good Build quality is top notch as always from Kicker.
Sound so much better than the stock speakers!
Pros: Ease of installation
Sound great,fit in rear pillar of 2002 Tahoe by removing foam insulation
Pros: Good sound great price
Awesome speaker for the center channel in my Acura tl type s. I appreciate Crutchfield's advice and expertise on making my decision.
Pros: Perfect fit. Great sound!
Great product. Great quality of sound.
i ordered these speakers as a replacement for the factory dash speakers in my 2013 ram 1500. the product shipped first thing the morning after i placed my order and arrived ahead of schedule. these speakers sound soooo much better then the oem's and came with harness adapters which made installation a snap. plug and play, it really is that simple. there were several videos on youtube that had people walk through the removal and installation of these speakers and it couldn't be any easier. it really is very simple. i am ordering another set for some more upgrades.
Pros: easy install, comes with wiring harness adapters!
Cons: ...good question??
Great upgrade from stock speakers. Much more sharp,crisp sound. All in all great price for better sound.
Pros: Easy install with the wire kits from Crutchfield, and wonderful sound.
Great replacement Speakers for the dash of a 2014 Dodge Ram
Pros: loud and clear sound
When choosing the speakers for the dash of my 2013 dodge I wanted to be sure and get the right ones. I spend about 3 hrs a day in my car so I wanted great sound not just volume. I was amazed at the quality of sound that came from their small size. The kicker brand is not one that I have used, therefore I was hesitant. But Ryan was able to adequately answer my questions about the speakers. I have been a Polk fan for a number of years but have added this line of kickers to my list of acceptable speakers. I have since installed the 6x9 versions in the rear doors.
Pros: Clear and accurate sound. Not harsh. Well balanced.
Cons: None yet.
Great speaker for the price. Nice sound, 100x better then stock speakers
Pros: perfect fit, price, and quality
Great little dash speaker
Pros: Mids and tweeter
Cons: Use bass blocker to avoid distortion. Can't handle low notes. May be better off buying a tweeter specfic speaker instead.
When i bought these speakers i didnt expect them to sound so good but these have great sound. Im running them off a stock unit in my 2014 ram. Great for dash speakers...i highly recommend these!
Drastic improvement over the factory speakers. Highly recommend!
Installed in a 2013 Dodge Dart - Piece of cake install (put paper between the front dash and pillars to avoid scraping them). These are awesome for the price for a set a speakers that elevate your stock speakers to true premium sound is fantastic. The sound is spacious and can handle a reasonable amount of bass for their size. I went with this over the CS series for the rubber surrounds and higher power handling. You would be no less than impressed after swapping these in. Great speakers!
Pros: Rubber Surrounds, Cheap Price, Silk Tweeters, Decent Bass Handling, Excellent Sound Quality
Cons: None especially for the price.
Very good speaker, installed in a 2014 ram crew cab. Have to turn the equalizer more to the rear speakers to balance them out. Going to install some 6x9 in the rear doors and hopefully that will help. Nice and sharp sound.
Pros: Good sound
Great upgrade over stock dash speakers in 2014 Ram! Exactly what I was looking for to match my sub upgrade. Very pleased.
Pros: Great sound, easy install.
These sound great, much better than the base and upgraded mopar kick dash speakers that came with my 2012 RAM 2500 Bighorn Crew cab. Very easy install with provided adapter cables.
Pros: Ease of installation.
Cons: None so far
The small speakers make a HUGE difference in the sound quality and stereo separation for the Dodge Ram. Even if you leave the other factory speakers alone, these speakers make the sound in the vehicle much improved. Changes from a muffled, omni-directional sound to crisp highs and great stereo effect!
Pros: Great sound, inexpensive.

Its been awhile since I've installed my set, but i think they might rise up just a tad. I installed these in an 86 Chevy K20. They fit fine and sound great! [ Cody Apr 14, 2016 ]
The tweet housing does stick up slightly above the frame, but I was still able to get the speaker grille to screw down without any trouble on my 87 El Camino. I suspect your c20 dash is nearly identical to mine in that regard. [ Greg Apr 14, 2016 ]
Tweeter did sit flush with the face of the speaker. Be aware, the magnet size is much larger than factory. I had to trim inside the speaker location for proper fit. May not apply to all installs [ Gary Apr 14, 2016 ]
They're not flush, but it doesn't stick up very high. Less than half an inch or so. [ David Apr 14, 2016 ]
Yes you are correct, they are only sold in pairs. [ Kenny Mar 31, 2016 ] Staff
