Our take on the Kicker KM42CW

by Jon Paulette
Kicker

Small speakers, sweet sound

Kicker's KM42CW 4" marine speakers sound terrific and look great on any boat. Designed for life on the water, these speakers feature sealed motors, rubber cone surrounds, and locking terminal covers to keep spray away from the internal componentry. They'll also stand up to harsh sunlight, thanks to special UV treatments on the cones, surrounds, baskets, and grilles. Whether you're on fresh water or salt, these speakers will give you years of outstanding performance. And their 2-ohm impedance will draw a little extra power out of your marine amplifier.

The package includes white and charcoal grilles so these speakers will match up with just about any interior.

Rugged and versatile

These 4" speakers are rugged enough for marine duty, but they're easy on your ears. The durable poly woofers and balanced dome tweeters cut through wind, waves, and engine roar to deliver great sound without annoying harshness. Whether you're mounting them in a bulkhead, or installing them in a set of Kicker's custom enclosures, Kicker KM42CW speakers will make your day on the water just a little bit better than it was already.
