Put in 2011 Dodge Ram

Written By Jim, Kansas on Friday, March 27, 2015

Great overall speaker. Could tell the difference right away between factory and these. Get them from Crutchfield because they come with the connector that makes it so easy to install that a kid could do it. All you gotta do is attach the connector adapter to the speaker and plug it into the vehicle's part and your done. Great price and great product.

Pros: Price. Great sound. Easy installation.

Cons: NONE

These speakers are such a huge improvement over stock! Buy from Crutchfield and the speaker connectors are included! Worth every penny.

Did my stock dash speakers even work?

Written By KJen92, Des Moines, IA on Friday, March 20, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I cannot believe the sound output from these little guys. I have to fade my stereo a few notches to the back because these are throwing such clear vocals and highs. Doesn't get much better than these little hammers for dash speakers.

Pros: Holy sound and clarity!

Cons: None

It's been a long time since I've bought car stereo equipment but Crutchfield was my first memory of where to shop. These speakers were highly rated and sound great. Also the installation instructions that come along were spot on! Also the wiring harness that was recommend worked perfect and made the job very easy.

Great replacement over stock FJ

Written By Eric, Boston, MA on Monday, March 16, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I replaced my stock dash speakers in my 2008 FJ Cruiser with these. I had to do a custom mount and wiring job to make them fit but they are a huge replacement over the junk that Toyota has installed from the factory.

Pros: Fits as a replacement in FJ Cruiser Dash with a little custom modification Sounds pretty good, especially for the money

Cons: Don't have other 3.5"s to compare them against

Kicker 40CS354 Review

Written By kevinc, Louisiana on Thursday, February 26, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

i believe that while i am no audiophile i do have extremely picky taste in speakers and their sound. that being said if you are replacing factory or old speakers with these you can't help but be blown away with the quality of sound from these small speakers. i have a 2012 ram express and once i replaced the speakers with these i could now hear sound that never came from the dash before. i have spent countless hours looking for good quality and low price options and kicker delivered on that. i would say that these are easily better quality than polk, infinity and jbl. you can not go wrong with these, try them you won't be disappointed.

Pros: price, quality, sound

Cons: None!

Good Factory Replacement

Written By IsaacV, Albuquerque,NM on Monday, February 23, 2015

These aren't fantastic speakers by any means. You're not going to get amazing sound quality, deep lows, etc out of these, but if you've got a truck that only has those 3 1/2" openings in the dash for front speakers, these are a major improvement. As long as you're not trying to drive a ton of bass out of them, they deliver clean audio at high volumes.

Pros: + Bolted right into the factory speaker mounts + Clean mids and highs at any reasonable volume + Very inexpensive

Cons: - They have all the low end you'd expect in speakers this size

Great for the price

I'm highly impressed with the sound quailty. I've always used kicker subwoofers and this is the first time I've used their mid range speakers. I definetly plan to use them in my future vehicles.

Pros: Excellent sound quality.

Cons: Had to modify exciting mounting brackets to make them fix and the hardware is terrible.

Replaced the tweeters in the sound bar with these.

These sound awesome just as long as you install them with bass blockers if you don't have a crossover.

Pros: Great sound. Nice highs.

Cons: Needs bass blockers.

Put these in my truck, huge improvement. I did all 6 speakers, but if you wanted a really cheap upgrade, just put these 2 in the dash, and in 15 minutes it will make a big difference. Of course then you will want to do the other 4, these 2 made the biggest difference of all of them.

Worry free!!

Written By Chad, New Albany, Indiana on Tuesday, February 03, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My most recent purchase was a pair of Kicker 40CS354 3-1/2" speakers for the front of my sons '88 K5 Blazer. They fit as well as the original speakers did, but I had no idea how much better the sound would be. With the free wiring connectors that come free from Crutchfield, installation was a breeze. I would recommend this product for anyone looking for speakers and the 3 1/2 inch range.

Pros: The mid to high range sound that these speakers give is the perfect complement to a subwoofer system.

Great Speakers!

Pros: Great sound quality and price.

Cons: None so far!!

Dont know why Crutchfield doesn't list these for Dodge Challengers...

Written By Duramax, San Antonio, Texas on Monday, December 08, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Ive been upgrading my 2013 Dodge Challenger speakers slowly. Ive been using the Kicker CS series which are great, they are night and day if you compare the factory speakers. First I did the doors with the rear deck following. I then started looking into the front deck but Crutchfield doesn't list them on their website. After searching the challenger forums and found out the fronts are 3.5's, I bought a set of these speakers. Instead of listing my challenger as the car, I selected a 2013 dodge ram 1500 as my vehicle (since the harnesses are all the same). I started browsing the front deck speakers, added these 3.5 CS speakers, it added the free adapters to my cart and I checked out. The speakers and package came in shortly after and with the help of plastic nylon tools from harbor freight, I was able to pop out the plastic covering the speakers. Few minutes later these bad boys were up and running. Wow. At first I really couldn't hear the front speakers. These speakers changed that.

Pros: Great sound/bass

Cons: Not listed under Dodge Challengers

Crutchfield response on Tuesday, December 09, 2014 Glad to hear you got these speakers to fit! Our database shows that they are a very tight fit in the dash due to the mounting height - the dash trim panel could smash against the tweeters. Based on your experience, we'll have our research team take another look.

From quiet to music

Written By JimH, Louisiana on Wednesday, December 03, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Could not hear previous speakers in dash. After taking ~5 minutes to install with the supplied cables that hooked up great, I heard music from my dash that was never there in my previous factory speakers. Magnets are at least twice as heavy. Sounds great....along with 4 6x9 Kickers in the doors with a factory radio (~13 Watts RMS). Have had to use my fade to move volume to the back from the front. Very happy and would buy again.

Pros: Great sound, low cost, easy installation

Cons: None

Sound better than expected

Written By CoryW, Indianapolis, IN on Saturday, October 18, 2014

I originally installed these with plans to replace them latter with a higher quality component set. The stock speakers in my Chrysler were so bad I didn't even listen to music in the car. These, as expected, were significantly better but to my surprise they actually give a fair amount of life to the audio system.

I have mine high-passed at at 400Hz; if you set the crossover too low they will suffer. I'm replacing theme with a component kit, but did consider connected these Kickers to an amplifier and crossing them at 600Hz.

Pros: Affordable price; synthetic film tweeter is good for low powered systems, and is not overly "bright"; surprisingly detailed.

Cons: "Kicker" branded

These kicker speakers were a perfect match for the JVC Kw 910BT radio I ordered from Crutchfield They were installed in the dash of my 1985 Supra by simply shimming one side with some washers were it mounts in the opening .The speaker wire connections were the same as the stock ones so connecting them was easy.

Great sound for such a little speaker. I used these to replace the dash speakers in my 2013 Ram 1500 and was pleasantly surprised. My only problem is now I have to get an amp for the rest of the speakers in the cab so they can keep up. (Rest of the cab was replaced with 6.5 and 6x9 Cadence)

Pros: Great as is.

Cons: None

Installed in 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee dash. Easy swap. Bright and clear, although maybe a bit too bright on some tracks. No need to change the other speakers; these will bring out the highs that are lacking in the stock setup.

Pros: Nice sound, clear, bright highs

Cons: May distort at loud settings.

Great Improvement on the Cheap!

Written By 300, Florida on Saturday, July 12, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These fit perfectly in my 2013 Chrysler 300c. It has the Alpine system with 276 watt amp. The stock speakers leave a lot to be desired in that they have no "punch" or warmth. These little Kicker's are a tremendous improvement in terms of clarity and soundstage. I was looking at the Infinity Reference 3.5's but I thought I'd take a gamble on these for less than half the price. I'm glad I went with Kicker.

Installation was a simple, 30-minute job and the harness adapter was a perfect solution to cutting and splicing the factory wiring.

Highly satisfied with these speakers!

Pros: Great improvement in clarity and stereo separation. Easy install. Perfect fit. Cheap.

Cons: Crutchfield says that these don't fit in the dash of the 2013 Chrysler 300c but they fit perfectly.

These are great speakers for how inexpensive they are, When I first bought them I had plans to possibly switch them out with something else but when I put them in and played them for the first time I was pleasantly surprise by clearness and big sound from them and now i think i will keep them in there for good. A must-have product!

Surprising sound for such a small speaker.

Written By Jamie, Derry, NH on Saturday, June 14, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Between the low price and surprisingly big sound these put out I could not be happier. These were originally bought as replacement speakers for the stock dash speakers in my 2000 Saab 93 hatchback. Just for the hell of it I installed them in my 2001 Saab 93 convertible (expecting to replace them with something higher end like Polk reference speakers) but I would up liking them so much that I left them in there and wound up getting CS series speakers for the rest of the convertible installation. I will order more of these for the hatchback. I WOULD recommend using some 600hz bass blockers with them though, especially if you will be adding an amp and a sub as I did. You won't need the bass they produce and they will sound much clearer when the lows are reduced.

Pros: Great sound. Solidly constructed.

Cons: None. The only limitations are inherent in ANY small diameter cone speaker.

I replaced the OEM speakers with these. The original cones were shot. So major improvement there. Only one problem, certain higher frequencies "hiss" a little. It's not static, it's just a hiss. Hard to describe. Might be because I have a poor connection, or maybe they need broken in more.

Pros: Fit right in the spot, inexpensive, decent sound.

Must have for Altima drivers

Written By Java483, Lincoln, NE on Monday, January 20, 2014

If you own a 2007-2012 Altima with the non-Bose stereo these are a must have replacement for the dash speakers. Night and day difference. I've replaced the door and rear speakers as well but couldn't really tell a difference. In fact I think it sounded worse so I went back to the stockers. I'm now in the process of trying an amplifier and see if that makes it better. Honestly unless you're an audiophile I would just replace these and call it a day. Car audio can easily suck you in thinking if I did this and this it would sound better. Don't be like me and know when to say when. And fortunately the dash speakers are the easiest to replace. Best $40 you will spend. The only other thing I would recommend is an aftermarket head unit. That is where I started and next to these speakers made the biggest sound improvement not to mention the additional functionality you get.

Pros: Easy to install, great sound, cheap price

Cons: None

Put them on my 2012 hyundai sonata limited 2.0t, matching them to Alpine type r components and coaxial speakers, and type r 8" sub w., this things sound crisp, detailed, and can handle power. The tweeter is high but you can work it with the eq. Great little things. My system sounds beautiful

Pros: Fit nicely in my dash, sound crisp, detailed and powerful.

Cons: A little harsh on the high end but easy to eq.

I installed these speakers in a 99 chevy silverado with a aftermarket receiver and found that the bass was good but the sound was not it was more distorted then anything I recently took them out and replaced with Rockford primes much better sound but not as much bass so it's really all in what u like

Pros: Good bass

Cons: Distorted sound

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers sound great for their size. I replaced some Boston Acoustics that were blown and was pleasantly surprised with the aditional highs that these speakers provide.

Pros: better high end

Cons: sacrifice a little low end, but hey, they are only 3 1/2" woofers.

Kickers with a kick

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Theses speakers sound really good in my 1988 Chevy pick and I wouldn't have it any other way but kicker

Pros: Fit really good and have a lot of treble

Cons: Since it's so small it doesn't give out a lot of bass but that's to be expected with small speakers

Great speakers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought these speakers a few weeks ago. They dropped right into the factory holes without a problem. The sound they produce is great. A lot better than the factory speakers, and they are running off the factory head unit for power. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a cleaner, crisper highs.

Pros: Clean, crisp highs.

Cons: Haven't found any yet

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I can't review both speakers, as I found out my front driver's side speaker has some bad wiring. But after about a week or two the sound quality on the other speaker kicked in and sounds nice. I get both some decent bass as well as the mid and higher tones. Nice product.

Pros: Great sound quality.

Cons: Can't judge the second speaker; not manufacturer's fault.

Great replacements for the factory speakers in my 2013 Dodge Dart. They offer great support for the two 10's that I put in the trunk. No amp needed. The sound is crisp and loud matched with the factory deck.

Kicker in Saab 93

Written By NomadU, Savannah, GA on Monday, September 02, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased these Kicker CS35s for installation into the dash of a 2004 Saab 93 Aero. The Crutchfield website indicated that they would be a good fit and the speakers had come recommended from a Saab forum. First, the ordering experience from Crutchfield was great. Easy to order from the website and delivery was very fast. As previously stated, the website was also helpful in determining which products were compatible with my car. Now for the speakers. Installation was easy without any modification requires. I simply removed the old speaker and placed the new speaker. I did not even need to splice or solder as the included wires had solder ends that plugged into the clips on the car side connector. A bit of electrical tape and I was ready to go. Mounts are in the same place as the old speakers, so no issues there. The grill fit over the units with no contact. I am still in the 50-100 hour break in period, but there is a noticeable improvement in the sound. The mids are much more pronounced than before adding to the thump of the stock subwoofers. The highs are a bit stiff, but I believe this is still due to the break in. I adjusted the bass about an eighth to quarter turn past center and it blended out the stiff highs for now. For the price, the fit, and sound, I would definitely recommend these speakers. The loss of one star is simply for the stiff highs at the moment, but I believe this will soften as the speakers break in.

Man, these little things rock. This was my first mod since buying the car and this speaker sounds louder than all of the stock speakers in my car and I have factory 6 9's in the door and rear. I definitely will be putting kicker 6 9's in the door next. Crutchfield never disappoints.

Pros: Nice highs, mids and the quality. Price & they were delivered in 2 days

Cons: "The only issue that I had with my order is only the fact that Crutchfield says that these do not fit in my car". fits in my dash perfectly.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers are amazing!!! I replaced my stock dash speakers in my '12 Challenger and what a difference! I am now hearing sounds in songs that I did not know were there. You can't beat the price either! The only issue that I had with my order is only the fact that Crutchfield says that these do not fit in my car. When I first called to asked about the fit, I was dismissed quickly with the rep on the phone telling me that they did not have any that would fit my car... I was very disappointed. After doing a bit of research on the web and calling and talking to a different rep, I decided to go for it. Needless to say, they worked out perfectly. I had to make 0 modifications.

Pros: Price and Quality. What more do you need.

Cons: none so far... I installed them today.

Great speakers for the price

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These little speakers made a world of difference, which was noticeable the second I took them out of the package. First off, they weighed 3 times as much as the factory speakers they replaced. Second, when I fired up my stereo after the replacement, I felt my hair get blown back from the incredible sound they put out.

Blown away by the difference in sound quality in my truck thanks to these speakers (and the 6.5" Kickers I replaced in the doors and behind the seats in my truck). For what you get, the price couldn't be better.

Oh, and Crutchfield is the best. Fact.

Pros: Great price, great sound, easy installation

Cons: None.

As always, Crutchfield is awesome with always making your installation easy with all the necessary parts, installation Manuals, etc.

Was looking for a simple replacement for my 2010 jeep cherokee.

These tweeters were very easy to install and took about 8 minutes to install both.

These little but powerful speakers quickly made a quick first impression appearance and sound wise.

Very very happy and the price is reasonable and worth it.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was glad to see that there was finally 3 1/2" dash replacement speakers available for my 2010 Altima, but skeptical at the same time. How much improvement can come from swapping out 3 1/2" speakers, right? TONS! These little things are great.

I highly recommend using an 8mm wrench if you have an Altima. The speakers were too close to the windshield to use a screwdriver or a metric socket. I didn't have one when trying to swap out #1. It took over an hour and a half by slowly turning screws with needle-nose pliers. I then came to my senses, drove to the hardware store to buy a wrench set, then installed #2 in 40 minutes, including the 20 minute detour to the store. Now kicking myself for not buying the wrench sooner.

Overall, this was a breeze (once I had the right tools). Couldn't be happier with the results.

Pros: inexpensive, easy upgrade

Cons: my car has a windshield
