Top Kickers

Made of the highest quality materials and engineered to produce dynamic, concert-like sound, the QSS65 component system showcases Kicker at the top of their game. The 6-1/2" woofer features an advanced Tri-Tech™ cone made from a stiff foam core surrounded by two layers of a woven carbon-polypropylene. These light, rigid drivers can respond with lightning speed, delivering accurate, clean reproduction of your music. A thick, rubber surround not only ensures speaker durablility but actually increases the surface area of the cone, giving this woofer better reach into the low frequencies. Kicker also adds an aluminum phase plug for enhanced sound dispersion.

Multiple installation options

Kicker designed the system's large 1-3/16" Tetoron® dome tweeter to deliver high-frequency performance that's second to none. The package includes all the hardware you need to mount these tweeters in the perfect spot in your vehicle, including flush- and angle-mount adapters. If there's no good spot in your vehicle for mounting the tweeters, you can remove the phase plugs from the woofers, attach the tweeters there, and install the system as coaxial speakers.

The QSS65's external 2-way crossover uses superior components to achieve the best possible transition between the tweeter and woofer. You can choose from three selectable tweeter levels to get most natural sound in your vehicle. The cast-aluminum crossover also offers bi-amp capability if you want to use separate amplifiers to run the woofers and tweeters for superior power delivery.

Serious power handling

While your car receiver may put out decent power, the system will handle up to 90 watts RMS so you'll want an outboard amp to push this system to maximum performance levels.

Why install component speakers?

A component speaker system gives you the best possible performance from your car audio system. A system consists of separate woofers, tweeters, and crossovers, each designed to cover one specific range of frequencies. As separate components, the woofer can move freely to deliver more powerful performance, while the tweeter can be custom-mounted in a better spot up closer to your ears, revealing a whole new world of detail. Separate crossovers are far superior to the simple filters wired into full-range speakers, so the components work together for smoother, more focused sound.

Just amazing

Written By inlinesk, Houston, Tx on Monday, September 15, 2014

I have 2 sets of these in my 03 durango. the truck originally came with the infinity system so the tweeters are mounted in the factory locations(all 4 doors came factory with component sets) the install was a bit tricky because the crossovers are monsters and then also rewiring the entire system(these need a minimum of 16awg wire to perform the way they need to. factory wiring is like 18 or 20awg). The end result was each door having 12 sq. ft. of Dynamat the woofer in the factory location with a 1 inch spacer(the magnet of this speaker is pretty big and is gonna need a lot of clearance). the wiring ran in the door grommet and to the crossover location(under the 2nd row seats two on the left two on the right) and then to the amplifier (KS800.5 and signal coming from a pioneer Premier DEH-P880PRS). i dont know where to start on explaining how clear the highs and the amazing lows that come from these speakers. i sat in my car for hours listening to different genres of music(literally everything; jazz, classical, rock, rap, country, live, instrumental, vocal) and messing with the EQs till everything was perfect. listening to music with these gives you goosebumps. when you close your eyes it feels like the artist is in front of you. They are probably the best thing kicker has came out with (i have never been a fan of kicker products). when compared to a friends Hertz HSK165xl paired with a T800.4AD sound quality is on par for a smaller price (my highs cost is about $400 less that his.

Pros: less cost for a high quality sound compared to other speakers in its class (JL Rockford ext.) amazing acoustics and virtually no distortion from the speakers

Cons: installing will be complex due to the huge crossovers and needing larger gauge wire ran Amplifier is Strongly recommended base response is so amazing that they will need sound deadening material magnet on the speakers are larger than regular speakers so the installer will have to make sure there is window clearance if they are going on the doors.
