Item #: 20641KS684
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 41KSC684'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"x8" 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 sounding speakers
Sound great. Such an easy install for awesome sound. Literally plug and play.
Pros: Easy install
2012 Raptor. They sound great. So many women try to get in my truck now with these speakers.
REALLY cleared up the mids and highs from the stock Sony system in my Taurus SHO. I bought four of these - one for each door. Mids and highs are crystal clear now even with the stock HU and amp. Easy bang for the buck upgrade.
Pros: Clarity in the mid and high range Good value to $$$ ratio
Cons: Uncertain about bass performance but that's because the stock stereo routes bass elsewhere.
These speakers were a definite upgrade to the stock speakers
Pros: Big boost in bass.
These speakers rock the truck! They are so much better than the stock ones it's amazing!
Pros: Great sound, highs and low are clear and crisp!
Cons: There is 6 screw tabs, had to bend two up to install them.
Great clean sound. Direct bolt in with no fuss. Should purchased and installed a long time ago.
Pros: Price Quality speakers
Bought these for the rear doors as one of the originals started buzzing. Not only did it fix the problem but the the sound quality was noticeably improve.
Pros: Easy install and improved sound.
Cons: I had to pay for them :)
These speakers are super clear and nice just make sure your connections are tight I blew 2 of mine in less than a year because of that and I will be buying them again when lows hit with these door speakers it will actually flex my doors enjoy them they are wonderful door speakers
I'm happy with these speakers that replaced the rear deck speakers of my 2006 mustang GT.
Speaker have a really good sound. not as much bass as I was expecting. I may need to add an extra subwoofer to my car.
I was really unhappy with the junk factory speakers in my F150. I Picked these up on recommendation from a tech assistant here on Crutchfield. Much brighter sound and actually have some bass over the factory speakers. Installed all four in an hour.
Pros: Easy install. Good sound.
Cons: None at this time.
Much better than stock with factory radio. Installing a Kenwood this weekend. Will see how they perform after that.
Pros: Cost. Better than factory.
Cons: None yet.
I bought these speakers to go into an older Ford model that commonly used this size speaker, They installed nicely and fit within the stock locations perfectly. I installed these with a 50W per channel RMS amp. They do mids and highs really well, but the dimensions just aren't big enough for good bass production. After installing these I wound up adding a subwoofer in order to complete the audio spectrum. These speakers do their part and I'm really pleased with the end result, but don't expect these to produce bass.
Pros: Fits in stock location well for these sized speakers. They're a nice quality speaker. Covers mids & highs really well. Reasonably priced.
Cons: Not good at reproducing low frequency sound.
I had given these a try and I am actually glad that I did. I have never owned these speakers and they have completed my system. The music is very much clearer than other's that I have owned. The highs the lows and the mids highly compliments the sound. I listen to heavy metal and the sound from these are phenomena l.these speaker's will not disappoint
Pros: Quality sound
First off the salesperson was the greatest,very knowledgeable about what he was selling. Speakers are still made good just like my first ones that i purchased twenty five years ago,Thanks highly recommend
Pros: Everything fit perfect very easy installation
Got these for my son's car for Christmas. Easy install. Sounds awesome. I love Crutchfield, you guys gave me everything i needed to put these in. I will never buy electronics from a box store again. I'll be back.
Pros: Sound Price
I installed four of these speakers into my 2012 F-150 XLT Supercrew. Installation was easy and straight forward and the wiring harnesses make it simple, just plug and play. The speakers are superior quality to the OEM speakers. Clarity is good. Bass in the mids is good, but a little lacking in the low. I plan to install the Sound Ordnance compact sub shortly after Christmas to give it that extra bump.
Pros: Easy install, plug and play, superior sound
Great speaker easy to install great price
At higher volumes with bass the stock speakers have major fade. My other car has KS 6x9's and 6" kickers in it with a 12" sub and decided after reading other reviews to give these a try. Have to say it's 100% better. The bass, the mids. Was a great choice. WILL recommend these to my other friends with F150's..
Pros: Easy installation. Best hour I have spent Installing 4 speakers.
Cons: Drivers door was a pain was all.
Good speakers for the price
Plug, play and be impressed by the difference. The stock Sony speakers in my F150 had no midrange whatsoever, so I got these and I'm surprised by the amount of solid bass they have as well as the improved midrange. Great purchase.
Pros: Easy install
Cons: no "kicker" badges to replace the sony badges on my doors.
Quick and painless upgrade to OEM that makes a serious improvement in sound quality. With the included wiring harness adapters, the hardest part was getting to the screw behind the door handle. I got a set of 4 installed after work and noticed a huge difference as soon as I turned the music back on. Very satisfied!
Pros: Easy install. Great sound quality for the price.
Cons: Um... no optional foam "spacers" for the front. That's purposely LOOKING for a con, though.
Great upgrade over factory speakers . Truly a plug and play install. Quick install with the great instructions provided.
Pros: Good Price, easy instal
These speakers are as advertised. No tweeters needed with this set of speakers.
Pros: Great highs and lows. The sound is pure. A great purchase.
Had these kickers in for 6 months before I replaced them they are terrible speakers. The head unit was only putting out 25w RMS and that was too much for these speakers. Poor sound as well.
Easy to install, good sound for a simple replacement speaker.(Just using radio power). A subtle increase in sound quality, but for the money, a pair, this is to be expected.
Pros: Good value, works as advertised. Very simple, drop-in install.
These speakers are some of the clearest that I've put in my truck. They are very clear with no distortion when given the power that they need.
Pros: Clear Fit two sizes 5x7 and 6x8 Good bass if that's what you want but are great for mids and highs also
I installed these speakers in all 4 doors of my 2013 ford f150 xlt ext cab. They are running off of my factory head unit. They sound louder than my factory speakers but i cant tell a difference in clarity too much. Other than that, i like them a lot.
Pros: loud speakers, great quality
Cons: Not too much more clear than factory speakers
Amazing speakers, great clarity and very easy install.
Pros: Very crisp sound and great range for a great price.
Cons: Nothing so far.
Marginal improvement in sound over the stock speakers. The kickers dropped right in and look good. Would have liked to have more of a sound distinction from the stock offerings.
Pros: Nice package. Easy install.
Cons: Not enough audible distinction from stock.
Excellent sound and got free headphones out it too. Awesome.
Pros: Easy install
great speakers for a great price, i love them. thanks crutchfield and your customer service is awesome A++
Pros: price, quality, sound
I got these speakers for my 02 Ford Ranger they fit great and they sound great, definitely worth the price, easy install
Pros: Install, Sound, Price
Cons: None at all
These are good, solid speakers. Not the top of the line, but for the price they sound great. They're far better than the original equipment speakers - I don't know a lot about speakers, but these weighed a lot more than the originals in my 2012 Escape. The magnet was about four times the size, and the cone is made of a much more durable material - the originals were paper. I'd recommend them to anyone looking to replace the original speakers with something that sounds much, much better but doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I was replacing a blown speaker and these were a definite upgrade over the originals.
Pros: Magnet is much larger and heavier than originals. Cone is much more durable. Installation was pretty easy - these speakers fit exactly in place of the originals in a 2012 Escape front door. Sound much better than the originals.
Cons: Can't think of any.
These speakers sound better than factory speakers, but just marginally. Don't expect deep bass and cirspy highs
Pros: Easy to install
I usually buy infinity but figured I would buy 2 sets of 6x8's for my 2003 ranger supercab because of a free kicker headphones with the special they were having. I installed them and they sound better but not on the same level as infinity reference I usually buy. I have a jvc aftermarket receiver.
Pros: Good bass response
Cons: Highs seem to be lacking.
Great speakers they really are an improvement from the stock in my ford expedition.
These speakers were such an upgrade from my factory speakers. I installed them in my Taurus recently, and they were so much easier to install than I imagined. The bass is excellent on them, and you can really hear every single detail in the high notes also. I use them every day and my car and I could not be happier! I highly recommend getting these, and they are very affordable!
Pros: Great bass, detailed treble, powerful, affordable, easy to install
Cons: Maybe make the bass a little more powerful. But it is still very good!
These Kicker KSC speakers make the stock radio sound 5 times better. Clear highs and much better bass.
Pros: Great speakers for the price. Installation instructions were great.
I bought these with a Kicker Hideaway sub for my super duty. These speakers are in the front and are powered with the factory headunit so Im sure they would sound better with a better source/amp but these are a drastic improvement to the OEM speakers. They dropped right in and the harness hooked right up to the factory harness. No splicing or cutting.
Pros: Inexpensive but sounds pretty good
This was a simple do-it-yourself upgrade with great results.
