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 41KSC694'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"x9" 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.
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.
great 6x9 speaker . awesome full range sound
These speakers sound fine; lots more Treble than the factory speakers ... doesn't seem to have as much bass, but could be due to the fact that I still need to replace a blown front speaker (impacting overall sound as compared to what I was used to). The issues are: 1) This site says these speakers "fit" and "use factory speaker grill" which is a primary reason I chose them. This is not accurate. The hole pattern does not line up to with - I had to install using only two of four screws, 2) there's a raised hard rubber/plastic material around the frame (on the face around the outside of the cone) that I presume is there for flush under-mounting. To be fair, it appears that most offerings have this; however, it prevents the factory grill from fitting. I can drill out the holes a bit on the speaker frames and cut out some material from the factory grills, but would rather have had accurate information provided prior to purchasing. Otherwise, they seem to be good quality speakers.
Pros: Sound fine and appear to be good quality speakers. Shipped fast. Nice having the connector kit provided free.
Cons: - Hole pattern does not line up for 2004 Honda Accord LX Sedan rear deck mounting. With two opposing side screws in place, the other two holes are off by 2 to 3mm. - Raised material in place to support flush under mounting prevents use of factory grills without modifying (i.e. cutting out material) the grills. - Both of these are counter to the information on the website indicating these speakers "fit" and "use factory speaker grill".
These 6 x 9's really put out the sound. These replaced the original rear deck speakers in a 2003 Honda Civic Coupe. What an outstanding upgrade. The larger magnets really increased the full range of sound in this vehicle. Installation was a little slow at first as we had to take out the back seat and one side panel. But eventually the speakers were mounted tested and in. Only down side is the four bolt pattern did not line up so one bolt hole had to be tapped on each side. A bit of a bummer.
Pros: Great overall full range of sound and they can take 300 watts so lots of room for more power growth.
Cons: 4 Bolt pattern did not line up in the Honda Civic....but it worked out.
SWEET HANDLES THE WHATS SOUND GOOD AND CLEAN WORTH THE $100.00.
Pros: 5 stars
Have always found Kicker products to produce great sound. I especially like their subs and amps. I installed these 6x9's in the rear doors of my 2013 Ram Quad Cab. I wanted to keep the factory receiver and do an inexpensive speaker upgrade knowing the factory stereo was 2ohms and the speakers would be 4 ohm. Normally you just have to turn the volume higher to get the desired output. The speakers have silk tweeters, normally a smooth sounding tweet, but not these. They're way too bright even with the treble turned way down. I saw similar comments after I purchased these. I have Polks up front and they sound awesome. I'll stick with Kicker amps and subs, but stay away from their speakers.
Pros: Specifications are good for a factory upgrade. Easy install as all other 6x9s.
Cons: Highs overpower base...really bright and tinny sound.
Excellent speakers. The sound is a 90% improvement over the original factory speakers, couldn't be happier.
Pros: fit in original mount locations and amazing sound.
Great speakers at a fair price
Pros: Love the materials used
I was not disappointed with this purchase. These fit my 2002 Dodge Quad Cab front doors perfectly. They sound better with more a little more punch than the stock speakers. Be careful of the wiring for the new speakers as the wire harness adapter needed to connect the speakers may rub the inside of the rolled down window if not placed properly in the speaker area. I used a scope (Thanks Harbor Freight Tools) to view inside the door panel to check on the wiring clearance before reinstalling the door panel. It took three installation attempts to get the wires to miss the window.
Pros: cost, fit.
Crisp sound,tweeters are clean no static.fits like a glove didn't interfere with the trunk tension...
Pros: Not too big of a speaker,fits like a glove.
Cons: None so far..
I have Kicker subs in my G8. They are beyond reproach for a free-air setup. These Kickers perform well under adverse conditions--front door Jeep Grand Cherokee. Much crisper highs than anticipated. Mid bass very good. Door installation limits bass response. I can imagine much better performance in a rear deck installation. These speakers are way beyond acceptable for the average listener. I am completely satisfied.
Pros: Fit for Jeep front door installation. Crisper highs than anticipated.
Cons: Don't know bass potential because of current installation.
Adding these speakers made a huge difference in the range of sound. They fit perfectly in the factory holes of my 2014 Chrysler 200.
Pros: They sound great
Pros: Great bass
The claim that its an exact fit for a 2002 Honda Civic Coupe is a stretch.
Pros: Sound quality is a major step up from the stock speakers which fell apart during the removal process.
Cons: During the installation process everything went fine until I had to screw the speaker into place. I was only able to get 3 out of 4 screws to stay in place. The holes on the speakers didn't exactly line up with the rear deck holes.
Paired these with Kicker 41KSS654's, great combo. 2002 Mini S speakers were done... spent last several months listening to iPhone. No longer an option. Enter Crutchfield. Looking for reasonably priced punch, and found them here. Great replacements for OEM speakers, and definitely woke up the factory Alpine radio. Next step is to add some "oomph"! Recommend these highly for added punch and depth to any stereo.
Pros: Easy installation, sound great, reasonably priced
Cons: Have yet to hear any!
I wanted more bass for the system in my '95 Volvo 940. I didn't want to put a subwoofer in the trunk, so I thought a set of 6x9 speakers with good bass would be a reasonable compromise. With this criteria, my advisor Abe suggested these speakers. They have very good bass response. I run these from a small 60 wpc amp in the trunk with a low pass filter set at 100 Hz. It is kind of a waste to essentially use these as subwoofers, but it works well for my system. I am pleased with the sound, but I can't speak for how they sound full range. Overall, I am pleased with my purchase.
Pros: Great bass for factory size speakers. Reasonable efficiency and price. Crutchfield support is always very good. Install instructions are helpful.
Cons: Went on sale after I purchased them. Yes, that is nitpicking.
Impressed with the sound and speaker quality for the price
Pros: well built, easy install, good sound
Cons: none so far
An excellent replacement for the factory speakers. The sound has detail which was lacking with the stock 6x9's.
Pros: Great sound for the price
These Kickers were used to replace the factory speakers in the front doors of my 2014 Toyota 4Runner SR5. They were recommended by the Crutchfield advisors. I was really looking hard at some Focal 6x9s for about $100 more than the Kickers, but my Crutchfield Advisor said these would be just as good for lots less money and boy was he right! The reviews were excellent as well. These speakers were easy to install with the bracket and harness that were included in the order. This was the first hands-on install that I've ever done. Always had a shop do my installs in the past. It was very easy to do. I also put Dynamat in the doors while I had them disassembled. But these new Kickers were an immediate improvement. Highs are VERY crisp now. They definitely put out more bass, but I didn't need that really as I have a powered sub under the passenger seat. I do not have an amp for these Kickers and they are still excellent. No need to get one. They are LOUD. This is my first experience with Kicker and it has been great. If you want to do an easy factory speaker replacement and get a huge return on your money, these Kicker 6x9s are the way to go!!
Pros: Crisp highs, more bass, easy install, major upgrade in sound quality over factory speakers
Cons: none so far
Changing out all 6 speakers in my new challenger. the doors only receive the lows so I didn't need anything crazy. I picked these over the Infinity Ref 6x9 due to price and the fact they have a lower range. they produced clearer bass than the stock speaker at a seemingly high volume (just a bit) so I am happy with them. clear bass good price.
Pros: Nice Bass, easy install. seem well built.
Cons: not a speaker con but the factory signal only carries the lows to this install so I don't know what the upper end of this speaker would sound like to tell you.
Consider these replacements for your stock speakers (especially if your stock speakers tore) but dont expect them to sound significantly better. There is only a slight improvement if any. The reasoning behind these are to replace stock speakers made of cheap materials with speakers with these speakers that have marginally better materials.
Pros: Cheap, better materials
Cons: Doesnt sound significantly better than stock speakers
I used the Kicker 6x9s in the rear pillars of a 70's Chevy Wagon. I'm currently employing a 444 watt amp and these speakers are clear, crisp and thump very well at higher volume levels. No distortion or rattling. My next stereo project will include Kickers.
Pros: Easy installation. Higher quality, tasteful speaker grills. Excellent performance.
Cons: None yet.
Installation guide says it doesn't fit the rear of my '13 Ram regular cab short bed. It has a UConnect 5.0 stereo non ALPINE system. It fit with no problems or modifications required. The magnet is close to the sheet metal, sure, but does not come into contact with it once the speakers are secured. Received harness adapters for my install and it made it super easy. Right away i could tell the difference from my factory "1 way" speaker. They are not broken in but I know I will be extremely satisfied with this upgrade. In all reality, any speaker upgrade to any vehicle from the factory speaker system is great. Whether you use component speakers or coaxial speakers. Next up will be my door speakers and I'll be using the Kicker KSC6934.
Pros: Sound is cleaner and richer than factory mudd sounds.
Cons: you don't have them yet
Very happy with these speakers. Rich, crisp sound. Easy installation. Fit perfectly into my '04 Nissan Titan; as simple as plug & play. A little less bass sounding than the factory installed, OEM Clarion speakers that came in the front doors. But I'm still very pleased with the sound quality.
The kicker 6x9 have very powerful deep sounds. The sounds are crisp and clear and bring out the bass in each song. Overall, these Kicker speakers are the best on the market.
Pros: Strong bass, crisp sounds, easy installation, very slim
I'm over all pleased with these speakers ... Most definitely an upgrade from stock and the stock speakers weren't horrible.
Very clear sound and we'll made. After a short break in period the bass improves. Easy to install with the provided by Crutchfield, wire harnessed.
Pros: Great sound improvements over factory speakers.
Great product. I have always bought kickers speakers however these have to be the best by far.
Pros: Great sound. Good with or without an amp connected to it. Good base and prefect highs.
Pros: Clear sound
Great speaker for the price. I just needed to replace my factory speaker that died, and didn't want to spend a lot to do it. Not only was the price on these decent, but they sound like they should cost twice as much. Crutchfield's automatic inclusion of the necessary wire adapter and installation instructions made the installation painless too. Shout-out to Crutchfield rep "Blake" for recommending them.
Pros: Nice price, great sound
Cons: Didn't line up perfectly with the holes in my doors but I assume that's on the car manufacturer for not standardizing! I was able to get two screws in opposite corners rather than all four, but they seem perfectly stable enough.
Great price, great sound and quality, installed in an 04 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Pros: perfect fit No surprises
I installed these 6x9's in the side panels of my 2004 MINI, along with Kicker 6" components in the doors. Initially, I wasn't thrilled with the bass response from these speakers. But after a couple months of break-in, I'm honestly blown away by the bass these are able to throw. Not only that, but the flatness of their response curve is truly impressive. Just to qualify my review; I'm a professional DJ, and I play EDM (Deep House and Drum & Bass). As someone who performs and listens to high-end systems all the time: these speakers are outstanding.
Pros: Amazing bass response after break-in period.
Cons: None. I would buy these again in a heartbeat.
Quick delivery by Crutchfield. Speakers were for a special setup in an early 60s T bird. Nice bass sound. Good mid range. Easy to setup. Only question someone may have in the installation is how to remove the grill. That was not identified in the instructions. Note there are 4 tabs at the center of each side that hold it into the plastic retainer ring. Just pull up on the grill at those locations.
Pros: Great sound
Cons: Grill removal was a bit unclear.
These are great speakers for a 2015 jeep grand Cherokee. The volume they put out with the stock head unit (8.4 uconnect screen) is superb. They bass response is great and they have nice mids and highs too. They are so much more clear than the stock speakers. I will add an amp later to give them some more power, but they really don't need it.
Even better sound to go with the 5 1/4 KS speakers I brought a couple of months ago.
Pros: Silk tweeters great speakers
These are really nice speakers. Great sound.
Great speakers. If your on the fence get them. Great sound great price.
Pros: Sound quality for the price
Just what you would expect from Kicker
I installed these in the back doors of a 2014 Ram 1500 Crew Cab along with Kicker 40CS654 6 1/2s in the front doors and Kicker 41KSC354 3.5s with 300 Hz bass blockers in the dash. There is quite a bit of bass from the 6X9 speakers. While they aren't the best out there they are quite impressive and even more so when the cost is considered. Well worth the money and a big improvement from the stock speakers.
Pros: Cost and pretty good bass..
Cons: None that I can think of.
These speakers are great for the price I didnt know my car was missing the rear speakers when I bought my car so I noticed that the sound was missing from rear, long story short I bought these and I noticed how much better it sounds with these installed
Pros: Great sound, clear sound, good item for the price
I gave these speakers a 5 star rating as they work fabulous. I do have a caveate that you will need to hear about. The speakers were purchased to replace the blown 6x9 factory speakers in my 11 speaker 320 watt Harmon Kardon stereo in a Buick Lacrosse. I love my music loud and they just could not hold the thumping. That being said the installation was not easy. Buick made it so that you had to basically remove the entire back seat, the rear deck trim and the trunk interior trim. Not recommended for the casual car owner. Second had I looked closer at the speakers I was replacing I would have noticed the 2 ohm impedence of the original speakers. These speakers are 4 ohm. They sound coming from them will be a little less thump but for me they will suffice. I know that they will not blow though so this is good. Another and this is specific to my car, the originals are manufactured to install with only one bolt. The speakers had an integrated mounting system that I could not duplicate with any after market speakers. Installation instructions suggested drilling mounting holes. My suggestion is this. Use caulking that will secure it. Much simpler solution. The speakers are resting inside a solid hole designed to accomodate even a slightly larger frame. Crutchfield didnt have solid instructions to the installation for my Lacrosse but they did provide as much as they could. Still my installation is very difficult.
Pros: Crutchfield is as good a customer support as you can get in do it yourself. The speakers are top notch and will last the life of the car.
Cons: Installation instructions were not really good. Even still the installation with good instructions would still be very difficult.
Purchased and installed these in a 2014 Dodge Ram Sport Crew Cab. As stated by Crutchfield, these will not fit in the front doors without some modification. You will need to purchase or make a spacer of about 1/2". Otherwise, the magnet is too deep. Once installed, you will notice a definite difference from the factory. The "muddy" bass and lack of detail will be gone, however, the off-axis response of these speakers is very poor. They are louder and much clearer, but when coupled with Kicker 41KSC354 3.5's in the dash, the sound is almost too bright for my liking. I haven't added subwoofers yet, but I think there will be quite a gap in the middle which needs filling when I do. Of course, Crutchfield service is top notch.
Pros: Much clearer than factory Crutchfield service
Cons: Terrible off-axis response Doesn't fit in the front doors without modification
Crutchfield is Awesome.
Pros: Kicker is the best, sounds great. Very good speakers for the money, I was looking for clean sound and that is what a got from this speakers.
Nice sounding speakers, installed in a Honda Civic, a big upgrade from the factory speakers
very good speakers for the money, i was looking for clean sound and that is what a got from this speakers
Pros: clean sound
This was part of my son's Christmas present. Installed the radio first and tested the sound with the factory speakers. It was better than with the factory radio, but when the speakers were installed, the 96 Camry sounded awesome!
Pros: Clean sound with decent range
Cons: None for the speakers, but would have loved a bracket adapter. Drilling was a pain, but got the job done
Awesome sound great quality ex lent price
Pros: Easy install. Crutchfield techs are great and know there products.
These are great speakers for upgrading the sound in 2914 dodge ram quad cab.
Pros: Great sound and Kicker quality.
Very nice speakers and great service from Crutchfield as always
Pros: Clear highs and easy install
great sound for the price
These 6 by 9s pound pretty decently
Install in rear deck of a honda civic. Sound great and handle the power of my alpine amp nicely.
Installed in 2007 Accord V6. Simple install. 20 minute job. Sound great running off factory head unit with no amp. Good lows. Shakes the rear view mirror.
Pros: Nice lows. Decent mid and highs. Clear sound. Nice materials. Affordable.
Cons: Shakes the sheetmetal in the rear deck. Lightly shakes the deck lid. Popped the OEM clip on the speaker grille. Hardly cons cause they hit hard...prepare for dynamat and a day of find the rattles in a Honda install

No [ Wyatt Dec 28, 2015 ]
Nope [ Brian Dec 28, 2015 ]
