Item #: 20641KS674
The 41KSC674 features a slim design, making it a perfect fit in more cars.
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.
While the low profile is an elegant asset, you'll find the real beauty of Kicker's KS Series speakers inside. The 41KSC6747'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 6-3/4" 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.
Great sound, easy to install

Great sound, easy to install
Pros: Great sound, worth every penny
They sound great! Nice smooth high's, and surprisingly good lows for a small speaker. Running them with a Kenwood KDC X700 putting out 22 Watts RMS and they are plenty loud enough with the deck power. I am glad I bought these.
Pros: Nice High's, and surprisingly good lows from a small speaker.
I bought thses to replace the front speakers in my wife's trailblazer that had blown. installation requires modification to the trucks speaker housing which is no big deal for me. They sound good
Pros: good price and sound good
Cons: have to modify housing to get to fit. for someone without the correct tools it may be next to impossible to fit properly
Awesome upgrade to factory speakers! Requires a little bit of fabrication to the stock brackets in the rear deck to install. The front door locations fit perfectly with the brackets supplied by Crutchfield.
Great speakers at a great price. Easy install instructions.
They are ok speakers. I was hoping for a speaker with good lows and cris highs. And it really is just a good mid to high speaker. I have a 2002 GMC Sierra
Great speakers for an outstanding price.
Pros: Sound, clarity, bass
Cons: None yet
Great speaker that greatly out performs stock.
Just swapped out the stock speakers of my 2014 GMC Sierra and the sound difference is great. Didn't have to change anything else. Bass hits harder but still needs a sub.
Pros: Sound quality
Cons: Mounting brackets provided had to be modified
It was suggested to me to replace my original, factory-installed speakers with these. I watched a couple of youTube "how to" videos on replacing these speakers, including my rear speakers, but one thing the videos and also the instructions don't tell you (but I WILL) is that to make sure you have a dremel-tool handy. You will be using a cutting-disc to remove some of the plastic from the speaker-casing that houses the original speakers in order to fit in your new speakers. I believe you would be doing this for ANY kind of replacement speakers since the original speakers are more "square-shaped", while all the new speakers are more "round-shaped." Once I figured I could use a dremel and cut away some of the plastic to get the new speakers to sit firmly within the casing, it was fairly easy after that to mount these. Also, I didn't know I had a separate speaker AND tweeter in each of my two front doors - I left the tweeters where they were, I just cut any wiring away from them, since there was no point in removing these (I'd never use them, no one would see them, and cutting them out would have been more plastic shavings all over me.) As I mentioned on a previous review, I probably could have just as easily used a slotted-screwdriver to pop out the door panels rather than being charged the added dollars for a panel-removing tool. Certainly though, if you have never removed a door panel from it's plastic clips before, then having this tool is a good idea. You can share it.
Pros: Price, value, sound (with a few adjustments to your bass and tremble settings if you're using a factory installed stereo, like I am.)
Cons: This is probably going to be the same for ANY speaker you put in your front door(s): you will be doing some cutting of the speaker casing inside the doors which presently is housing the original speakers and tweeters. If you want to get away from this, then spend the obscene amount of money for exact factory replacements, which will surely be a disappointment in sound and quality, but will be a breeze to replace. Take your pick!
This is a warning about the fit of these speakers not the speakers themselves. On the advice of Crutchfield (claiming to be experts) ordered these speakers. I had to lookup online how to take the door panel off because their vehicle specific instructions were generic and vague. Once I finally got the door panel off I removed the old speakers and cut the wires per Crutchfield's instructions only to find out that the speaker would not fit. I was very upset because I spent a lot of time and effort to get to this point only to have it not fit where it should. I called Crutchfield and let the experts know that these speakers did not fit and their advice was to use washers to hold it in place. I let the person on the phone know that only two holes would line up and that would be fine. That is your expert advice only use half the mounting holes and go buy washers! I don't know about you but I don't like a speaker that rattles in its mount anytime anything is played. This has been a terrible experience and I am going to tack the bracket to a local speaker shop where I can get something that fits which is what I should have done in the first place!
Cons: For a company that prides itself on service I am extremely disappointed!
These speakers provided a substantial increase in sound quality and bass. My 1973 DeTomaso Pantera has VERY limited room for extensive upgrades. This was the easiest avenue to better sound quality. An improvement would be a installation template and available surround (opening) adapters since the previous door panel hole was irregular great sound improvment and somewhat oversize. HOBIE
Pros: great sound improvement
Cons: only included one connecting cable
I installed 4 of these in a 2011 base model Soul that had a blown speaker. First the sound. Bass response in this application is very good. I did a side by side bass comparison vs factory, neither seemed louder than the other, however I could hear lower notes in the Kicker. Also the Kicker could handle higher volumes with out the bass distorting. Highs are also good, smooth sounding with no harshness, however if you are used to harsh "in your face" highs of many other car speakers these might seem soft to you. Next some notes about installation. The brackets Cruthfield includes to mount these in the Soul fit very good, both to the vehicle (didn't need to drill any new holes) and to the speakers, but you will need to pick up some machine screws or bolts, washers & nuts to attach the brackets to the vehicle. During my installation I used thin weatherstripping between the bracket and the vehicle and between the bracket and the speaker, to prevent any rattles. I also used weatherstripping on the top flange of the speaker where it meets the door panel, to mimic the factory speaker. Now some info about the Kia Soul. Some of the information Crutchfield has on the Soul doesn't apply to the base model Soul. Base model factory speakers are 4 ohm (not 2 ohm). Currently when selecting speakers to fit "front door", a wiring harness is not available, however the wiring harness that comes with speakers when you select "rear door" location does in fact fit all 4 doors on the base model Soul.
Pros: Good bass, smooth highs, nice sounding speaker. Glad this came in a 6 3/4 size.
I am very impressed with these speakers so far. I am running 1000w Soundstream (4-channel x 90w @ 4 ohms) and 350w Sound Ordnance (monoblock, 175w @ 4 ohms) amps off the factory head utilizing line output converters to turn speaker outputs into RCAl inputs for amps. One 12" Kicker sub in a ported bandpass box, and then these and the 5-1/2" version for the 4 interior speakers. These speakers are very clear and crisp sounding even when you turn up the volume and add a little bass. Tested it out with some Crystal Method as they have some serious low, dragging bass on some of their songs that the old system couldn't handle and washed out the rest of the song, but with these you can still hear the highs even when it thumps. I had no problems with installing utilizing the brackets and instructions sent by Crutchfield. I wish they would have included how to route new speaker wire to them but since I bought the amp kit elsewhere I guess that would have been getting greedy =P
Pros: -good clarity throughout range -excellent bass if you power them properly
Cons: -nothing so far
Great overall speakers work and sound amazing.
Pros: Overall all around good speakers
Great product for the price! I ran rocketfish 16 gauge audio wire directly from my kenwood head unit and it sounds great!! Don't think I will have to replace my stereo before my truck dies
This speaker is by far the best for the price. I can hear music clearly cruising down the road on my Harley.
Pros: Price Clarity Ease of instal
Purchased these for my 2006 Jetta Mk5 and am very pleased. These have crisp highs without distortion. Exactly what I was looking for. Can't beat these for the price.
Bass is solid. Treble highs are clear and crisp. Mids need a little more but with some adjustments the speakers are very good. These went in a 08 Tahoe to replace factory speakers and they were mounted low on the door. I believe they would have definitely been better mounted higher. Perfect for the rear deck of a car. Installation hard ware was solid, but I had to use different screws then what they came with since they were a little too long.
Cons: Need more power on mid level frequencies.
I installed these in the front doors of my 2015 Tacoma Double Cab. These speakers are great! The highs are clear and the bass is great. I added some GTMAT sound deadener and couldn't be happier. If you decide to go with these, you will not be disappointed.
Pros: They work and sound great!
Cons: They don't fit the back doors, but other than that....NONE.
Install was easy with the provided wiring adapters. Had to drill new holes, but you told me that when I ordered them. Took less than an hour to install the pair. Nice sound to replace the stock speakers on my Chevy Suburban.
Pros: Crisp sound at all volumes. No distortion.
The speakers are clear, sound great and are a terrific upgrade.
Pros: Easy to install, great sounds, good bass
Cons: Non at the moment.
I used these to replace the stock speakers in my 10-year old Chevy truck, and they're being driven by the stock head unit. The original door speakers (all 4 of them) were rated at 15W RMS; these Kickers, 100W RMS. The Kickers seem to require more 'volume' on the knob to drive them adequately. Compared to the stock speakers, these seem to have less bass, but also have a much higher level of clarity throughout; the result is more 'music' and less 'loud noise'. I've had to readjust the 3-level mixer to max bass, and very low treble to try to get the right balance (according to my ears) for the treble/mids/bass. I'm still fine-tuning it. The end result is, I can hear my music better without a lot of noise and distortion over the 10-year old stock speakers, as one would expect, but part of me wishes there was just a bit more bass.
Pros: Great fitment for the tight space in my doors (window tracks, etc. just behind mounting location). Great mids and highs.
Cons: Wish it had more bass.
With this install price was definitely a factor. And I don't ever like to cheap out when it comes to my music. But for my girlfriends 07 Grand Cherokee I stuck to a "budget build". And I am not sorry about that. The 63/4 is the same size as a factory rear door speaker just different mounting holes and the sound the comes from it tops the others I've heard in the price range. Good clarity, no distortion at high volume, and they are not out driven by the subs. Would deffinately buy these for another install.
Bought 2 sets for my '04 Blazer. Had to drill holes for installation, but no big deal. Speakers sound great right off the bat and only get better with time. Even came with a free pair of kick ass Kicker headphones, which was a pleasant surprise.
Pros: Sound great, quality for cheap
Cons: Drill new holes for installation
These speakers are exactly what I expected.
Pros: Crisp clear sound Good bass
Pros: Sound is very clean, put out a lot more volume vs the stock speakers. Easily installed in my 2011 aveo
does not fit my 09 cts
Pros: looks great
Cons: did not fit my car
Installed these in front doors of 2002 Sierra running on Kenwood x998 head unit power only. Also installed using XTC foam baffle (nice for protection, not for bass response). Sound is clear and stays clear with increased volume. For reasonable bass response, I cut away 50% or so of the foam baffle. The speaker does appear to like volume. I can imagine using a 100w external amp would be quite impressive. Materials seem of quality. Pulling them out of the box, they don't "look" like they'd make a lot of volume, I suppose due to the shallow mounting depth, but they get loud for sure. Overall happy with and would make recommendation considering the price point.
Pros: clean sound, nice volume without significant breakup on HU power only.
These speakers are appropriately named. They definitely provide the Kick in the rear of my 2011 Silverado. Fit was perfect with the wire/door adapter kits provided. You need to use the break out tab option with the door inserts. I think I will go ahead and put some in the front as well even though these originals haven't gone out (yet).
Pros: Highs/lows are proportionate and to my liking. These produce more boom that the original speakers could and much clearer. Just right.
Cons: Now I need to chase a new bass induced rattle out of the truck-maybe use some velcro padding in the lock areas.
Ok ever notice how reviews are so biast and never end up correct? Not anymore.These speakers are amazing. The even blend of high,mid,low freq is perfect. They get louder than every other speaker I tired in this new car and had way way more bass. Do not let the picture fool you they hit very hard and clean. its almost unreal how much volume bass and clarity they have. The are better than most mid range component sets Ive had. I know that sounds crazy but its so true!!! Trust a stranger and buy these they have everything you need plus easy to install a million holes for different cars and shallow!!!! Im telling you these rock in every aspect and will blow you away. Better than last 2 model infinity kappas, every level of polk, rockford power series, jbl, pioneer, mb quart, jl. Once again trust a stranger you wont regret it. Stop looking at more expensive and component systems and get these!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pros: CLARITY BASS TREBLE VOLUME SHALLOW INSANELY EASY TO INSTALL EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cons: DIDN'T BUY SOONER!!!
I replaced the speakerd in my 2014 tundra with these. I lost a lot of low end bass until I I stalled the foam surrounds. The speakers sound 10x better than the factory ones. If you give them the suggested 100 watts rms they play louder than any sane person could stand!
Pros: It's a kicker! Plays loud crisp and clear
Cons: Low end suffered
Installed these in my son's 2006 Chevy Silverado Crew Cab truck to replace stock speakers that weren't working since we bought the truck. Didn't go too bad. Had to drill new holes for the front and used supplied screws & gm wiring harness. Rear speakers were glued in so we had to pry them out along with a fiberglass plate, but the four existing holes matched up with the new speakers so no new holes needed to be drilled for them. Sound doesn't seem to be anything better than a stock speaker though. He runs an aftermarket head with no amp.
Pros: Fit existing openings with only having to drill some new pilot holes to mount the front. Wiring harness was easy, so no splicing of wire.
Cons: Sound is just average to me. Was expecting more.
I installed these speakers in the front doors of my 2005 Trailblazer about a week ago and so far I'm really impressed with them. The high and mid range are very clear, but I was especially surprised with the lows. I listen to anything ranging from heavy metal to blues, but mostly hang around in the hard rock genre. With most speakers I've listened to, this type of music sounded extremely garbled, especially at high volumes. Like the other ranges for the Kicker 41KSC674, the bass is exceptional, even when I crank it up! My only gripe is that they did not fit as specified on my particular vehicle. I was informed about removing some locating tabs on the bracket, but even then I could not get the speakers in correctly. Needless to say, my brackets still function, but they do not look pretty at all. Thankfully they are hidden behind the panel anyway.
Pros: Great sound overall. Love the bass.
Cons: Had to modify the bracket for my vehicle, even though it indicated it would fit.
First off here is what i ordered and compared, polk db651, polkdxi651 ,kicker cs674, alpine spr-60, mb quart onx 6.5. the only speaker that was even close to these in overall sound was the polkdb. these kickers are insane. listen dont let their puny size fool you. look at those alpines they are beasts and were trash. best part is these kickers sound amazing amplified or not they have everything you need, bass bass and mose bass, volume nice and loud louder than my 95db infinity kappas, and smooth clear highs. theres not one bad thing to say at all. i am extremely picky. these blew away everything. they are clean and clear as home audio and provide so much bass my doors rattle and they are sound deadened on both side this inclused the door panel. im telling you these are perfect and i wasnt a kicker fan. these are worth double the cost. everything is even and blended, the high and volume level keep up with the bass which is what makes them so great. so honestly get these you will not regret it I Promise.
I didn't realize how bad the factory speakers had become in my 1999 Chevy Blazer. These speakers sound great! and were a snap to install.
Pros: Easy install, great sound
Great speakers, easily installed to replace my stock speakers! Great quality sound! Paired them with the Kenwood subwoofer and amp package, made amazing listening experience!
Pros: Easy install, on time shipping, great quality sound
Cons: Had to make adjustments for the screws it came with
I ordered a pair of car speakers that were supposed to include instructions on how to install. instructions were not included ......disappointed
Cons:Crutchfield response on December 23, 2014 We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
They are much better than factory and seem decently made.
Pros: Dont look like crap. Sound better than factory set up.
Cons: None that I can see
Very nice, Cristal clear, Mids and Hi's . Deep bass ,that rolls off nice . They take What ever power ,I feel like giving them .
My 2002 chevy silverado works hard and for some time the factory speakers were toast. Called the specialist at Crutchfield and told him what I wanted - clean sound and simple install. He recommended kickers and it sounds awesome. For those of you out there with a silverado - it is super easy. I would have hated to pay someone to do this - I went slow and it took me like just unber an hour.
Pros: Clean sound simple install and great directions - thanks crutchfield . Get the connectors - they are awesome and solid
Cons: Should have done this three years ago
These speakers are loud and clean. I am only running these speakers off a Kenwood stereo, so I only pushing 20 RMS. The speakers are rated to perform at 50 RMS. I am curious to see the clarity of these speakers on a 4 channel amp.
Pros: Easy Install, Have yet to blow them, durable.
Cons: none so far.
Great sound and very well made. The speakers offer a reasonable amount of base for a speaker of their size. They are perfect for doors and offer a high level of weather resistance. Everyone has seen paper door speakers rot out after heat and moisture have their way.
Pros: Good price. Great durability. Quality construction.
First Crutchfield experience - Excellent support and the Kicker brand speakers are great. Far exceeded the local Car Toys who told me to go away and just buy a stock speaker. Right side door speakers quite working in my 2008 GMC crew cab. Installed four Kicker KSC67 and left the stock tweeters connected in the pillars for now. Sounds great. Bought the Bojo trim tool kit also which made install a snap. Found a You-Tube that helped along with the instructions CF gives you. 15 mins per door start to finish once you figure out how to remove the panels, if you pre-assemble the speakers to the adapters.
Pros: Support - Quality Products.
Cons: The ETC baffels are not needed - complicate the install - don't clear the window travel. CF refunded the $18 price of the baffels whenI i told them that about the recommended baffels.

It is ok not really much bass at all i could use more power i have the stock factory head unit. [ Steve Aug 27, 2015 ]
It is very good compared to a factory system. I would put it a little above a factory Bose system. That said if you want really heavy bass these might not be your best buy. [ Peter Aug 27, 2015 ]
Yes it's good. [ patrick Aug 26, 2015 ]
I use them strictly as Sub Woofers in my car - and yes - Bass is good for this size speaker. [ Carl P. Aug 25, 2015 ]
I turned off the bass within those speakers and allow my subs to take control. The bass was decent, however I was running it 25 rms (headunit). If you run them through an amp you might get better results. The speakers do have a clean sound. [ christopher Aug 25, 2015 ]
The bass is ok. [ JASON Aug 25, 2015 ]
Not really... There is a sharp drop off below 80hz. They do play clear at higher volumes [ FRANK Aug 25, 2015 ]
its better than stock paper speakers. its not gonna rattle ur windows if thats what ur looking for. [ reid Aug 25, 2015 ]
For the size of speaker, yes. [ Kent Aug 25, 2015 ]
For the size yes but for maximum performance use a amp. These speakers are very nice for the price, hope my answer helped [ Ali Aug 25, 2015 ]
There is a basic in line capacitor for the tweeter. I am not sure of the value, but I would guess its around 5khz. It is "jumped" off the woofer input terminals, meaning you dont have to do anything special to hook it up. The woofer has no crossover. It will play whatever signal you send it. Hope this helps. [ BRANDON J Jan 27, 2015 ]
No [ Brian Jan 27, 2015 ]
Yes, but they aren't as good as buying a separate crossover and mounting the sub and tweeters in different locations. [ austin Jan 27, 2015 ]
