Item #: 2064CS354
Upgrading the old factory speakers in your car will give you a huge bump in sound quality, and Kicker designed CS Series speakers to get your sound system rockin' without breaking the bank. You'll enjoy your music even more when you hear all the details that your muddy-sounding factory speakers couldn't begin to reproduce.
Kicker's 40CS354 speaker set provides low-end from a tough 3-1/2" polypropylene woofer, with a polyester foam surround that will stay strong for years to come. The 1/2" PEI balanced dome tweeter takes care of the vocal and instrumental details that'll really bring your music to life. These speakers will sound great whether they're powered by a factory radio or an aftermarket car stereo.

Great product. Extremely satisfied
Pros: Direct replacement
The speakers sound good, little high and can wash out other speakers.
Pros: Powerful little speaker
Cons: Highs can be almost 2 high
Just installed these bad boys in a 1986 mustang 5.0. Delivery was wicked fast and putting them in was even quicker. For the price you can't beat these kickers. The only reason to upgrade from these is if you were near deaf and had to blast your system on max volume to hear anything. I would recommend these kickers to anyone looking to upgrade their musical experience while driving.
Excellent speakers for my application. They fit perfectly in the seat headrests of my Miata
Pros: size and sound
After being assured by Crutchfield that these speakers were the correct size for my application, they don't fit. To be more specific, they fit in the location (rear upright panel) but they are too deep and force the panel to bow outward significantly so that the panel fasteners near the speaker won't seat properly. Door speakers and a new head unit are next on my list but I'll skip Crutchfield and take my car to a professional installation shop and let them do the job.
Pros: speakers sound okay for the size - no bass, all treble.
Cons: don't fit as they shouldCrutchfield response on June 6, 2016 Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to help the customer. We'll either help him get these speakers installed, or help him return it for an exchange or refund.
I love Crutchfield but they let me down here. These speakers were said to not fit my dash speakers in my Volvo. They would require extensive extra wiring and cutting the rep said. I order them, put them in place, plug them in using the adapters(life savers) and drill two holes and they fit fine. When I told the rep about it they never bothered to respond lol. Oh well, they fit and that's what matters. As for the speakers they are okay. A little over powering to be so close to the face. Good tweet and handling of lows. Rounded out my bass but will need a small sub to complete the sound. Rounds out my car with its 2 5.25 speakers. Recommendation? For the price, not bad, but I'd go with a nicer speaker if I had the chance again as the sound could be more refined.
Replace the set of stock speakers in my SS with these kickers was very impressed with the sound that it brings to the top front of the car
Pros: Bolted right in to my 85 SS Monte Carlo
Second set good sound quality for the price
Wanted an upgrade from the factory speakers. And these are definitely an upgrade.
Pros: Louder, more clear, and just better
Replaced stock Boston Acoustic dash speakers. Fit was no problem and did this during a 15 minute break. Was very easy with the wire adapters. I did have to bend the adapter prongs a bit to slide them on. Sound was so very different. From stage is so clear at first I thought too much but after a break in period I'm digging them. CDs sound good and punchy. The radio however sound kind of tinny. Probably cuz I'm still stock HU . But I'm usually jammin to CDs anyway. Lots of metal. Megadeath and Pantera sound bad ass.
Pros: Easy install ,direct fit for 2006 300C. Cleans up the treble and much more punchy and articulate.
Cons: It is a bit too trebly just listening to the radio. But I'm guessing it's because I have the stock 300 HU and can't really shape.
2014 Ram 1500 Crew Cab. The install was quick and simple thanks to the free harness adapters and master install guide. They are a huge improvement over stock units. They are hard to control though. I have the 8.4an HU and even with the treble turned all the way down, and the mid almost all the way down, some of the highs are still overpowering, to the point of being piercing or scratchy. I have had them in for a few days now and was thinking maybe one of the units is damaged until I saw on the comments here other Ram owners have had similar experiences. Perhaps it is a difference in impedance with the stock units these replaced? Perhaps location coupled with the factory system makes these not a great match? I am giving it a couple more days before I decide to possibly try other alternatives. In closing, they illustrate how lacking the factory speakers were for sure, but they don't live up to thd promise of what they could be either.
Pros: Price, installation ease
Cons: Overly bright, almost a bit scratchy at times
I purchased these as dash speakers on my 2015 Ram 1500 along with 4 kicker speakers for the doors, and the Alpine Power-Pack U. These speakers are very well made and I stole them for the price of $19.99 on sale here. As odd of a complaint as this is, they sound TOO good. Well more like TOO powerful. These bad boys sound great, no distortion, but they overpower the door speakers completely! I have the treble and mid turned down as far as they go on the factory equalizer, and I have the speakers faded 3/4 to the rear, just so they don't wash out everything else. With all of those adjustments, at 1/2 to 3/4 volume is where the Kicker shines in most applications, although anything with crisp highs will pierce the ears and have you turning that knob down quick. I have adjusted the amplifier gain to ZERO and these speakers still Rock & Roll, so it's not an issue with the amp. In conclusion, these speakers are very good, but for the application as a dash speaker on GEN IV Ram, probably over powering. Crutchfield Advisers were more than helpful and recommended Polk db351 speakers as an alternative, since they have a more mellow sound.
Pros: Great price, top notch quality control and the high's and mid's are great.
Cons: Way overpowered with and without amplifier. Bass is lacking (what do you really expect from a speaker this size though)
Great mids and highs. Nice upgrade to use with OEM head unit.
Pros: Direct swap with factory speaker (dash 2013 RAV4) without any modification.
Fit perfect in the dash of 1985 mustang gt
Great quality. Best bang for the buck
Pros: Easy to install, direct fit
very nice product
Good price, quality looks good, have not used yet.
These speakers fit with no modifications. The highs are clear and bright and the mid bass is much improved over the stock set up. I got a great deal on these and am going to continue to buy from Crutchfield for sure.
Pros: Perfect fit Easy install Bright, clear highs Improved mid bass response
I bought these for the dash speakers in my 2013 Ram 1500. they are a nice replacement and they fit right in but, they are quite overpowering in this application.
Pros: good fit
Cons: somewhat overpowering
This things were great for the price
Pros: Nice and small with a lot punch
Replacing my OEM dash speakers, i really felt the positive difference. However installation was a bit tricky the speakers files the hole, however i was only to use one screw, and was not able to screw in the other one because i keep hitting the window corner. The treble was too high, where i had the treble on 5, and now i had to reduce to 2. but the sound is much better than before.
Pros: Much better sound quality over OEM speakers
Cons: little tricky to install, i will have to dismount again and try fitting both screws. treble is too high
Great sound and quality for the price. All that I suspected.
The highs are VERY high. I am running these through a head unit with a built in amp and I had to turn the treble to -2 in order for them to keep from piercing my ears. The quality is great and the sound is improved over the stock speakers.
Pros: Good quality
Cons: very high treble
Pros: Easy install
Love the way they sound and for the price they at awesome
Pros: Great sound
I ordered all 6 Kicker speakers for my 2014 Ram crew cab (8.4 without Infinity). The 3.5 dash speakers made a big difference over stock. I put 6.5 in front doors and 6x9 in back doors. Theses both sounded bad and I ended up putting stock speakers back in.
these 3.5" speakers met my needs and exceeded my expectations . They sound great , clear .
Installation was simple, but the "highs" are scratchy on certain frequencies, no matter what the source (radio, cd). Surprising and disappointing, and I don't want to deal with the hassle of returning/exchanging them. Speakers are connected to a brand new Kenwood head unit, so actually not sure if it's the speakers or the head unit, but I presume it's the speakers.
Pros: Simple installation.
Cons: Lousy sound.
Great upgrade from the factory speakers. Worth every penny.
did what I wanted it to do
I upgraded my factory speakers to these Kicker speakers and must say this was a good choice. The installation was smooth and seamless and did not take long to do. Crutchfield included detailed instructions that helped out tremendously as well as the hardware that made the installation plug and play. This was a nice addition to my Ram truck!
Great little speakers. Big sound for a small package. Supplement these with bass and you'll be all set.
I ordered these to replace the dash speakers in my 2015 Ram 1500 Express. The difference is immediately noticeable. The sound from the dash is much louder now and the highs are much cleaner and crisper than ever before. These will off-set the Kicker subwoofer I plan to install soon perfectly. For the low price these speakers are a bargain. Also, anybody can install these. I know nothing about car audio systems and was able to install these in 20 minutes.
Pros: Clean, Clear, and Crisp Highs Much more volume than the stock speakers Super Easy Install
Substantial replacements for the corner dash stock speakers. Sound great. The free "adapter" harnesses supplied by Crutchfield made the install a breeze. No splicing or soldering.
Pros: Quick install, sound great over stock speaker, using existing radio.
Excellent little speakers. I needed a little more treble in my sound systems to clearly hear the vocals over my bass in my new 2015 ram. These speakers were crisp and clear and the installation was simple. Performed the swap quickly during a 15 minute break at work. The supplied cable harness maybe installation a breeze.
Pros: Affordable Easy installation Sound great
I just finished installing these Kickers in my 2015 Ram, which has a really nice factory touch screen A/V unit but crappy factory speakers that didn't do it justice at all. Installation of these units took all of 5 min with the free plug n' play harnesses Crutchfield included. Impressions are than they get a hell of a lot louder, stay clean at high volume and sound much more crisp and accurate than the factory speakers. I feel like I stole these at 39 bucks.
Pros: Value value value. great sound in a small package. Durable, quality build.
Cons: None noted.
When I installed these speakers, they really cleaned up the audio in my Ram 1500. Before vocals were muddy and treble was lacking. Now I can really hear the mids and vocals. I have had higher end 3.5 speakers in other vehicles, but for the ease to fit (direct drop in) and price, you can not beat these speakers. Also added benefit is increased sound levels, meaning they are loud!
Pros: clean and clear price installation ease
These small speakers amped up the sound in my 2014 Ram Hemi. With all that horsepower it was in need of some sound upgrades. for the price and 10 minute installation, including a smoke break, they were the best and easiest upgrade for the price. I will change the rest of the speakers that were Hecho en Mexico with some Merica styled sound pushers and will look to Crutchfield and Kicker to "fill the void."
Pros: ease of installation, sound production
Cons: would not allow me to travel back in time
Pretty good speaker for the price, easy to install and sounds pretty good. Good up grade from stock speakers.
Pros: Easy to install sound good
Great speakers for the price. Huge upgrade from the factory dash speakers. Much clearer and no distortion when turned up. Easy install with supplied harness from Crutchfield.
Pros: Clear, great price, easy install with supplied harness.
Huge improvement over the factory dash speakers. Enough said.
Great product excellent!!!!
Pros: Crisp sound
Cons: I have nothing to say there great
Always been a big fan of the Kicker brand, and these don't disappoint. Just changed out the factory speakers in my 2014 Ram 1500 in the dash corners. What an improvement!! Get plenty of highs, mids . Put in 600 Hz bass blockers. Keeps bass from flooding it out. Overall, very impressed.
Pros: Clean, clear sounding, very easy to install
Put these in the dash of my dodge neon. I already had kicker 6.5's in the doors and 6 by 9's in the rear deck do I didn't think these would help to much. Boy was I wrong! These speakers gave my car a whole new level of sound! The clarity and the in your face loudness was exactly what I was looking for!
Simple 10 minute install with the included witing adaptors for my 2013 ram 1500 base radio. The sound of these is 100%better. Nice crisp clean highs and vocals. Direct fit no modification needed.
Pros: Perfect fit. Better sound quality overall than stock
These speakers are terrible. The volume won't even be on high and the cones are bottoming out. The tweeters sound like straight distortion and dinging. On top of all that I have been waiting 2 weeks to get my return to sender sticker. So the speakers and this website are a total let down. A waste of my time and money.
Cons:Crutchfield response on April 7, 2015 It's unfortunate that these speakers didn't work out for you, but more importantly, we're sorry to hear that you haven't received those return labels yet. We typically email those so that you can return the speakers and get your refund as quickly as possible. We've asked our Customer Service team to reach out to you and make sure you're taken care of.
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.
These speakers are such a huge improvement over stock! Buy from Crutchfield and the speaker connectors are included! Worth every penny.
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!
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.
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
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
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
Just replaced my factory speakers on my challenger with these and man what a difference... So much more crisp mid highs and highs... Will be replacing the 6x9's and 6.5's in my car with this series speaker
Very nice speakers! Bright and clear highs. A big improvement over stock!
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.
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.
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. Fit perfect in my 68 Cadillac Deville (front speakers/dash). Access through the glove box after removing the door.
Pros: Clear...perfect fit for 68 caddy
These things sound great in my 2013 Ram 1500. The first set I got one of the speakers was bad. I contacted Crutchfield and had a new set in less than week.
Pros: Great sound quality and price.
Cons: None so far!!
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 ChallengersCrutchfield response on December 9, 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.
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
Easy install. Took 5 minutes! And cheap! Very happy with these!
Pros: Install took 5 min. And sound ten times better than stock!
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
great speakers for the price!
Pros: the sound quality is very good
These baby's came in today and already installed! Perfect fit no cutting no drilling they are better than the Boston system in the car gotta break them in first but I can tell the difference crisp clean sounds! Thank you kicker and Crutchfield. And the parts sent with then are also a perfect fit
Lot of clear sound!
Pros: easy to install
Installed these on my 2014 RAM 1500 Express Black Edition. Great product!!! Really brings the dash to life. You couldn't hear the factory dash speaker. What a difference . They sound great with NO amp only the factory radio.
Pros: Great product / dropped right in / super easy to install
Great replacement speakers. Really improved the sound in my 2006 Saab 9 3. Big improvement over the original factory speakers
Pros: Easy install
better quality than stock
Fit perfectly. Sound AWESOME!
Pros: They fit. Connected with the Crutchfield supplied harness. Installed them both in about 10 minutes.
Yes i have sound
Pros: Easy install thanks to crutchfield tech support for help picking out what i was looking for Made it so easy and less stressfull
Cons: Replacement for under dash on 1983 chevy truck lump noticable
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.
Pros: Sound great, great price
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.
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.
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!
I recently installed a Pioneer 4000-NEX into my 2012 Ram 1500 Quad Cab. After doing the install my highs seemed a little flat. I installed these kickers into the dash, and noticed sound improvements immediately. The sound is much more balanced, and they sound great with the existing stock speakers. I am very happy with the purchase.
Pros: Sound great, great price, easy install
These speakers are great. The tweeter is good and doesn't squeak at all. Recommend using bass blockers, they make they quality improve a lot! And they provide installation gear awesome!
Pros: Price Sound Easy installation
Cons: Nothing yet.
Good price, high wattage, decent sound
Pros: Wattage Ease of mounting Tweeter sounds good
Cons: Midrange sound quality isnt that great, but some 5-1/4" speakers in your doors will be enough to compensate.
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.
Great price with amazing sound!
Excellent buy. Fit the doors of my 2002 Dodge Ram Van 1500 perfectly with no issues. This van has never sounded better!
Pros: Great fit, Great sound.
The best speaker in this size, best bang for your buck.
Pros: plug & play install
Cons: "Scratch & Dent" was a little more like "someone cut the wires off the tweeters & you'll have to solder new ones on"
Perfect factory speakers replacement, they sound amazing.
These are excellent speakers, especially for the price. Running them off of OEM power and they sound fantastic. I know they would sound even better with aftermarket head unit or amp, but right now very content with them. Huge improvement over factory speakers. Very easy hookup thanks to Kicker providing wires and connectors. Great Buy!
i got the speakers for my 2011 sonata gls to replace the factory 2.5 speaker.had to modify to make them fit (no big deal ).when first installed speaker broke up and distorted real bad at mid vol.had to put a bass blocker to keet it from breaking up.after that was done gave a hole new life to my car clear and no distortion at al even at full vol.
Pros: with bass blocker speaker works great no problem for a 3.5 "speaker.
Cons: had to make my own bass blocker when i feel they shold come with it from factory .3.5" speakers shold be getting eny bass eny ways
great sound out of a small speaker
Pros: great sound
Cons: only 2 mounting tabs
I could have stopped replacing speakers with just these up in the dash on my 07 Laredo, the sound is amazing over the stock tweeters. The treble is razor sharp, almost too much for me and i love that clear sound. I combined these with the matching Kicker 40CS654's and the result is much better than i had expected.
Great replacement speaker. Look nice, exact oem mounts. Tweeters are crisp and clear, good mid range for a 3.5" speaker. No bass but that's to be expected
Pros: Crisp highs, oem mount
I custom mounted these in the dash of my 03 PT Cruiser and they work and sound great.
Easy install and awesome sound from such a small speaker. Unreal difference in sound over stock
Pros: Great sound
Perfect fit and sound. Installed in VW Golf 2
Pros: Perfect fit and sound.
wish i could give it 10 Stars, literally the move impressive sound quality improvement in 20+ years of using Crutchfield auto components....I cannot believe the sound quality with these Kicker speakers...simply AMAZING!!!!!
Pros: installed in less than 15 minutes
I bought these as factory replacement speakers with low expectations for my dash speakers in my 13' Ram 1500. Man am I blown away!! Like night and day from stock to these lil kickers. Highly recommend these speakers if your lookin to upgrade your sound in your truck. Also using stock radio. Can't wait to put after market and get these babies really signing.
Pros: Ease of installation, sound quality, perfect fit from factory speakers.
Great speakers to replace the stock ones I had. Sounds great for the price they are. Very happy buy.
Pros: Cheap Sound great Give a nice bass
Clear and precise sound quality
These speakers are awesome for the price and for the size!
Pros: Fit perfect. Easy install sound great
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.
Good for the price
Pros: Highs sounds great
Cons: Still distorts
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
The first thing you know when the box opens is , It's big magnet shows you made the right choice! Second is how easy it was to install the kickers , thanks to wire kit that fits the factory wires in my 2013 dodge. And the third thing I know about the kickers is the amazing sound they make! I couldn't believe the great sound it was pushing out! I'm happy The product was made.
Really great speaker for the price
Pros: Evens out the sound of your system
Easy drop in replacement. Can hear clear highs now across my dash.
Pros: Great speaker
Wow!!! I know its considered a "factory upgrade" however the sound quality is night and day. This is my 3rd pair of kicker speakers,all bought right here on Crutchfield, and customer services is always so great and Kicker product does so well.
Great speakers. Great price. The installation products are great.
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
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.
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
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
Amazing high-end. Used for factory replace in fjcruiser. Loud for on amped.
Pros: Crisp high end good price
Cons: Not much low end
Added Great sound for an old system.
Pros: Nice fit with adapter plates.
Sounds great. Easy install in my 2001 SAAB 9-3.
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.
Very nice sound. Easy to install in my 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee
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.
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.
I installed these in a 1983 chevy truck. they sound really good for the size.
Pros: good sounding speaker.
The speakers add alot for the size. It's an upgrade from factory speakers!!
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.
Great sound for little investment. Installation guide made installing the speakers much easier. Should have done this sooner.
Great sound for the dash speakers. Fit the Dodge 2500 pickup with easy install.
Pros: Great mids and high end sound
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.
Delivery was right on time, speakers were packed well and came with all paperwork and needed wires and clips.... Install was simple, they sound great, way better than the stock speakers and that's all I was looking for
I bought these speakers as a replacement to the stock ones in my Saturn Sky. They fit perfectly and the sound quality is fantastic! Great way to improve your sound system at a reasonable cost.
Pros: Great sound at a reasonable cost
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
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.
Always get exceptional help from the staff.
Pros: Great Prices
Cons: none at all
NICE QUALITY 3 1/2 SPEAKER THEY ROCK...
Pros: QUALITY BUILT AND SOUND
Cons: NONE SO FAR
Good replacement for my factory speakers. I had to trim a little pastic. Nice crisp sound compare to the orginal speakers.
These speakers were great! Not only sound great but loud too!
Pros: Fit factory holes Great sound Great price
Cons: Can't think of any
These little Kickers are impressive. Great sound and good construction. Nice, affordable upgrade over the oem speakers.
Pros: Sound quality is bright yet not overpowering. Cheap price.
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
Exact fit, All the right parts, Sound great
Pros: Very easy install
Great value for the money. I was really surprised at the sound these little guys put out. Cranked up loud, they still sound crystal clear with great quality.
Pros: Inexpensive. Top quality.
Tiny little things live up to their name, they kick and bang like no other. Great pick up at a good price!
Pros: - Great sound - Great bass - Great price - Great all around
Cons: I didn't think of ordering from Crutchfield sooner :)
Arrived in short and installation was very simple. sounded great in vehicle.

I have them on the dash of a 2012 sonata turbo. They fit nice and tight. The magnet is quite big for this size, but they did fit. I dont know about the jeep, but it should. Great little speaker. [ Erick Oct 24, 2015 ]

flush [ michael jonas Jan 02, 2016 ]
I think they are flush but I can check when I get home... if I remember. [ BRADFORD R Aug 05, 2015 ]
it is not flush. About 1/4 inch higher than the speaker. Take a look at the 4th pic on the site http://www.crutchfield.com/p_2064CS354/Kicker-40CS354.html?tp=96&turntoqid=S0ENak0aaw&turntosuid=S0kMaUoc&sourceId=1&turntoQuestionId=1190559&turntoRecipient=eyJlbWFpbCI6ImJydWNlYWNveEB5YWhvby5jb20iLCJmaXJzdE5hbWUiOiJCUlVDRSIsImxhc3ROYW1lIjoiQ09YIiwibmlja05hbWUiOm51bGx9&turntoTrackingToken=eyJpcXJsSWQiOjIyNTUxMjgyLCJ0dXJudG9RdWVzdGlvbklkIjoiMTE5MDU1OSIsInR1cm50b0VtYWlsVHlwZSI6InF1ZXN0aW9uIn0%3d&turntoEmailType=question&iqrlId=22551282&turntosku=2064CS354&turntoflow=answer#turntodone [ BRUCE Aug 05, 2015 ]

3.5 inch speakers? first get bigger ones, second yes cross them over at smallest 100hz but mine are crossed over at 150hz because my sub play up to that. I recommend crossing them over near the frequency your sub is crossed under at so they over lapping frequencies don't sound redundant, plus your sub will reproduce those frequencies better. [ michael jonas Jan 02, 2016 ]
I don't have bass blockers on mine. I was under the impression they have a built in crossover. I can play them loud on my head unit and they sing real nice with no distortion. Still, I wouldn't feed them less than 80hz with a 6db high pass filter from my head unit. To be sure, I've never noticed distortion even without the HPF turned off. As far as your install, they should fit with minimal modifications. Call Crutchfield tech support and get the specs (cutout diameters etc) to be sure. Hope this helps. :) [ ANTHONY R Jul 01, 2014 ]
I have these in my ram 1500 and they fit perfect. I put bass blockers in and would recommend those. [ JESSE Jul 01, 2014 ]
