The 41KSC54 features a slim design, making it a perfect fit in more cars.

Slim fit

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. And the refined, black grilles included with the package allow you to do a custom installation that'll knock people out.

Pump up the volume

While the low profile is an elegant asset, you'll find the real beauty of Kicker's KS Series speakers inside. The 41KSC54's highly sensitive design conjures hefty volume even from low-powered factory radios. So, you'll be able to enjoy every bit of their natural sound, starting with a full midbass and midrange experience from the 5-1/4" polypropylene woofer and its powerful magnet. You'll also hear subtle vocal and instrumental details from the silk dome tweeter, giving your music a dimension that factory speakers just can't manage.


  • 2-way car speakers (pair)
  • 5-1/4" polypropylene woofer cone with rubber surround
  • 1/2" silk dome tweeter
  • power range: 2-75 watts RMS (150 watts peak power)
  • frequency range: 45-21,000 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.

Nice and smooth! Good Speakers

Written by: AIdaho from Hawaii on December 23, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very good speakers. Good value for the money. Smooth sound and clear highs. Good amount of bass for the size of the speakers. Would buy again.

Pros: Solid and well built speakers. Clear smooth sound with good highs and decent amount of bass.

Cons: Could have a little more bass for a fuller sound

Very Nice

These speakers sound amazing and brought new life to my music. They really put my stock speakers to shame & installation was very easy thanks to Crutchfield.

Cons: None

Not too impressive

2000 Jeep Wrangler
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not super impressive - these were recommended by a Crutchfield chat team member as a very good speaker and I wish I would have went with my gut instinct and bought Polk or Pioneer. I had a $200 budget for 4 speakers. I installed in my 2000 Jeep Wrangler replacing 2 front stock speakers with a new aftermarket Pioneer deck I bought at another retailer. To me they sound "tinny" and can't handle much volume. Have to really tweak the settings on the deck to get any decent sound out of them, have to keep adjusting for different types of music because they can't handle the mid or bass of some songs. I've had cheaper speakers that sound better that this without an amp. Might be partially due to the acoustics in my 15 year old jeep, guess I'll deal with them.

Pros: They fit and work???

Cons: Tinny, Can't Handle Volume with a decent Aftermarket Deck, sound like a $40.00 set of speakers.

Great speakers

2015 Hyundai Accent
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I got a pair of these for the rear speakers and the same line in the 6-3/4" size for the front in my new car. Running them off a Soundstream 1000w amp (90w RMS @ 4 ohms) and they sound fantastic. I noticed very little distortion of the high and mid range when the bass really kicks; for an inexpensive door speaker I don't think you can ask for much more in sound quality. Kicker makes some quality products; I used a nice amp kit from them, line output converters, and all speakers (4 interiors and the sub)

Pros: -clear sound -good bass for small door speakers

Cons: -none yet

2014 Jeep Wrangler
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Put these in the dash corners and roll bar of my 2014 Wrangler. Speakers sound great, but the adapter brackets weren't even close to matching up with the shape/bolt pattern on the speaker housings. Took a good deal of cutting, filing, and self tapping of screws to make it work.

Pros: Awesome sound across the full range.

Cons: Install was far from plug and play.

Very Happy

1986 BMW 325ES
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very easy to set up, used the smaller spades just like the factory wiring. Very Clear, Very Low for a 5 1/4". Looks very professionally made.

Pros: -As above: very low for a 5 1/4". These are on my rear deck, so they may get some sort of quasi-I.B. going on. -Good sized magnets for the cone size, cone material and surround seem like they will outlast the vehicle these are in. -Silk dome tweeter. For a car, and little to no active EQ, works well. Every metal/plastic in the past has been uncomfortable to listen to. Not with a silk!

Cons: -No cover for the tweeter. I can come up with a little piece of speaker grill cloth to cover them; These things will take on the dust and should have a little protection.

Best speakers ever

Written by: dj86 from Manor, TX on May 23, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sound is enough deep yet highs are great. So good I can use these rear speakers (if I wanted to) as front speakers. The quality is great.

Pros: Can be great speakers with or without including an amp. Definitely an upgrade over and stock speaker. Would recommend to anyone.

Cons: Beats me at this point.

2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500/3500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Outstanding speakers. Easy to install. Far superior to OEM's. Handle a ton of bass and the tweets are remarkable. Adapter brackets worked perfectly. Did not use the grilles due to doors having grills already. Left the OOM tweeters disconnected. The website illustrations do not show the OEM double speakers in the front doors but my sales adviser states I could either keep the tweeters connected or leave them disconnected.

Pros: Easy to install. All around great sound.

Cons: None

fits 2015 Jeep Wrangler soundbar

Written by: ej76az from Arizona on April 8, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This does fit in the soundbar of the 2015 Jeep Wrangler. I installed 4 of these, 2 in the lower dash and 2 in the overhead soundbar/roll bar. For the dash, you do Not need to remove the whole dash -- just the side panel and glove box on the passenger side and the side panel and the cover under the steering wheel on the driver side.

Pros: great sound for the price

Cons: not a lot of bass needs a lot of parametric equalizer tweaking

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The installation of these speakers couldn't have been any easier and they sound great. Extremely pleased with the purchase. Would buy again 10/10.

Pros: Sound, ease of installation, "cool factor"

Cons: The little wire-like cover things that you have to pop off in order to install the speakers seem kind of fragile but they didn't break. Not a big deal.
