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 40CS54 speaker set provides low-end from a tough 5-1/4" 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 sound great powered by a factory radio or an aftermarket car stereo, and they'll really rock when connected to an external amplifier. Grilles are included.
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.
Needed to replace cheap factory speaker on my 2015 Harley Davidson. Can't beleive the difference especially for the price totally impressed.
Pros: Good highs clairity and a little more bass although for a speaker this size its not going to be like a sub. Went from 2 to 4 ohm didn't loose any volume very efficient.
Was easy to install , and sounds waaayyy better then those standard speakers!!
Pros: Sound is amazing easy installation
This was so easy! The wiring and speaker brackets worked perfectly! A+ Speakers sound so gooooddd!
Pros: Super easy installation
Cons: Didn't come with screws to mount speaker to speaker bracket
Excellent sound and price easy instal
Bought these to replace the factory front door speakers on my niece's 2010 Chevy Cobalt. The master sheet perfectly explained what I needed to do and I had the job done in about 45 minutes. This made a huge difference in the sound quality! My niece couldn't be happier. Kicker rocks! You won't find better speakers than these for the price.
Pros: Great sound, major upgrade over factory speakers, and affordable!
Cons: None so far. Kicker is amazing!
Got the Kicker 40CS54 speakers to go into the roll bar of my 1998 jeep, they installed right into the factory hole with no issues, using the extra adapter connector that came with the speaker. Got them to go with the new Sony CDX-G3100UP radio and Kicker 40CS464 front speakers. They sound great for the price.
Pros: Quick and easy fit into factory speaker location
Cons: The extra connector that came with the speaker, to mate to the factory connector, had too tight a fit on the small speaker terminal, and took a long time and patience to get on the speaker terminal
I purchased these to replace my factory speakers in my 04 sierra when I replaced my head unit. They came with free mounting brackets so they just snapped into door like factory did. The handle all thepower from my head unit at a great price.
Pros: price,free hardware, gd sound for price.
Cons: not top kicker quality
Great speakers. Fast and easy install instructions. Speakers came with mounting adapters as well as the wiring adapter harness. Nice sound and a great price..
Pros: Nice speakers for a good price. Don't feel cheap.
Upgraded amp in scoot, couldn't find any decent speakers for nice price that could handle power.....until now.
Pros: 4 ohm 75rms.
Great item for price. Very clear voice. Sounds great overall
These are good replacement speakers for the stock units in my Mazda 3. The sound from the stock head unit is crisp and clear even with the bass and mid range output set to max. Definitely worth the purchase price.
Pros: Inexpensive upgrade with good quality sound.
Have these installed in a 2000 Buick Regal with the same line 6x9s in the rear. Overall, I'm pretty impressed. Considering their small size they put out decent bass, but far from subwoofers or even their 6x9 cousins. I should actually say they put out a sound that lets you know what the bass line sounds like rather than what it feels like, which is fine with me, The highs don't come off as too bright and the mids are good too.
I should also mention that right now I only have them powered by the stock headunit, which is really why I'm impressed. If they can change my speakers from being the worst I've heard to one of the best being driven by a 16 year-old STOCK head unit, imagine what they can do with an amp! Or even just an aftermarket stereo!
Pros: Very good drop-in replacements. Don't expect God to manifest in audio form, but rather expect a pretty extraordinary improvement.
Cons: None really.
Purchased these to replace factory speakers. Great choice.
Bought these speakers as a Christmas present and my friend couldn't be happier. I helped install them in his 1989 Firebird and they sound amazing for the price.
Ordered this as a gift for my father truck. Not only was the ordering simple but the order arrived exactly as promised when it was promised. Very quickly. The speakers came with the mounting brackets and wiring harness and made installation as simple as I could have hoped for. Zero complaints and will order from Crutchfield again!
Pros: Simple ordering, fast delivery, easy install.
I needed a pair of speakers efficient enough to be powered by my Chrysler factory radio and a advisor recommend these. I noticed a difference in sound right away. Great mids and highs and the bass isn't bad but I'm sure the bass will improve once the speakers are broken in.
We replaced the blown out speakers in a 2004 Accent GL with 4 of these Kicker speakers and really got our money's worth. They sounded great even with the stock radio but then we paired them with a Sony CDX-GT570UP receiver and got an even better result. Excellent price, fantastic tech support by phone (we had no idea what we were doing but the online instructions and live tech help made it so easy).
I bought 4 of these to replace the factory door speakers in my 2004 Toyota Tacoma 4-door pickup. The original speakers were toast and I had replaced the head unit with a decent JVC putting out 20 watts RMS about 2 years ago. These speakers put out really clear highs and mids but little bass. I was not expecting license plate vibrating thumps, but a little depth to the sound was expected despite the size of the speaker cone. I played with the internal EQ settings in the head unit, but at low volume levels it is still rather tinny. I'm upsizing the rear speakers to 6x8's and am considering a powered sub. A powered sub may be the perfect recipe, but these speakers alone, even with the aftermarket head unit, just don't cut it for full sound. All that being said they weren't that much per pair... and required no mods to the door panels to install.
Pros: Clean install, highs, mids
Cons: Sound fullness, bass quality especially at low-mid volume levels.
Great sound and a great fit. Very crisp and clean
Pros: Fantastic speakers
Cons: No cons that I could find
Love the sound
Pros: Great fit
Very easy to install with Crutchfield supplied parts. Had two front speakers in my wife's 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee in about an hour or less. They sound sooo much better than the factory speakers. Thank you for such a great deal
Pros: Easy install sound great
I bought these speakers as a replacement for my Jeep TJ roll bar speakers. What a great improvement over stock. They sound great with the OEM radio
Pros: Easy install with the wire harness provided FREE with the order. 10 minute install time
Sound great, easy to install, nice factory upgrade
In the jeep the speakers seemed to give a richer sound definition than the old paper factory speakers. The fit was a little different but no modifications were needed using the existing factory speaker covers. I may need to get an amp to get the full potential from these speakers as I did not notice much of a difference when there were turned up loud. I figure it is just the poor quality aftermarket that was put in this jeep. Some day a full stereo mod will go down!
Pros: Fit well. Sound quality was improved.
Cons: Once cranked up they seemed to perform average. May be my stereo unit.
Easy install and what an up grade to the sound from the stero.
These speakers sound really amazing in my XJ Jeep. With Kenwood radio, 22w rms/speaker, there is very nice sound quality and surprising hear & feel of the bass for such small size. Loudness will go more than safe listening level and still beautifully clear, as long as you don't push the bass EQ level too hard.
Pros: Surprising Sound Quality Nice Build Quality
Great sound! Put them in the sound bar of my Wrangler. Excellent price to boot. What's not to like?
Pros: Sound and price
Cons: None so far
Everything worked as anticipated during the install in my 2011 Altima. Sound fine for the price, definitely much better than the factory speakers they replaced.
Low cost, easy to install with wiring harness, good sound.
Pros: Cost & installation.
The speakers fit with no modification. They have good sound and are better mid-range to high. They are much better than the stock speakers.
Pros: EZ fit, good sound.
Cons: Not as robust on lower end.
These speakers fit wonderfully in my 1984 Corvette will be buying an amp later from Crutchfield later as well!!!
Pros: Easy to install, sound wonderful, great for factory stereos.
Cons: None that I can see
Easy install with the include wiring harnesses that fit perfectly and not only do they look good in my Wrangler's roll bar, they sound really great. A good bargain on a quality sounding speaker set.
Pros: Sound and look
Cons: None that I could think of
Kicker 40CS54 speakers . I used them to replace the rear OEM speakers on my Toyota tundra. they are a bit small for my application however I was able to install them with the included speaker brackets from CRUTCHFIELD they sound great and are inexpensive I regret not purchasing the larger speakers from kicker I believe they would sound better.
Pros: inexpensive, great sound.
The paper speakers in my 1995 Mercury Tracer were blown so I ordered these based on a recommendation from a Crutchfield rep. When I installed the first one I tested it against the paper and I was pretty upset. The highs were tinny, the mids and lows were basically non-existant. I was ready to send them back but I was in a rush so I left it in for my commute.
During the commute I remembered that I had turned the bass and treble all the way down because the paper speakers were so distorted that it made them pop and rattle. Once I turned that back up it was night and day.
I finished putting in the other 3 speakers this morning and I have to say, even on a stock, awful ford head unit from the early 90s with no amp these little speakers rock. I am very happy with them for under 100 bucks.
The mounting tabs included leave a little to be desired and the bracket is plastic but you can't really complain when they're free. They get the job done.
Pros: Low price, Well rounded speaker
Cons: None after I played with the head unit adjustments.
Needed an inexpensive set of speakers to replace the spent OE door speaker in my old SUV. The Kicker speakers fit that description perfectly. Quality materials, solid frame and easy installation. Plus 20.00 off ! a no brainer. Sound is very good quality, not much base but then they are only 5 1/4 speakers. good high frequency dispersion form the tweeter... For a OE replacement, these are hard to beat.
Pros: Cheap, easy fit, look good, sound good
Cons: Bass response fair. Not a "direct" fit for my vehicle, had to drill new mounting holes as the OE flanges were larger
These speakers are ok for the price but if you really want them to slap you should hook them up to an amp. I thought they sounded pretty good on my stock radio but once I put in a kenwood head unit and (cheap) amp they sounded so much better just it was like the music came to life!
Pros: Great for a budget drop in.
Cons: They run off a lot of power
These speakers, with the free brackets and connectors they send you, were easy to install. Thanks for all the free stuff you guys give with this purchase. These went right into my 1995 Ford Escort LX wagon front doors. They sound fantastic!
Replaced stock speakers and they sound much better
Pros: Easy install low cost
Great sound for the size, nice bass, crisp highs. I have a kenwood deck and it's a great combo. I've used kicker subs in the past and now will use their speakers as well.
Pros: Nice powerful sound
what a difference the sound from these little speaker produces
Pros: perfect for me
Perfect fit for my 2003 wrangler. Sound great and the included connections made it simple
Pros: included adapters.
Replaced the stock rear speakers in my Cherokee XJ with these. Easy direct bolt in install. The free adapter harness made wiring a snap. No cutting or splicing. The speakers sound great! A definite improvement over the factory speakers!
Pros: Fast shipment. Easy installation. Great sound!
I changed the speakers in my sisters Tahoe because chevy has crappie stock speakers. It sounded so good I did my speakers in my Silverado. Crutchfield knows what it takes and sends the adapters and wiring. It's a definite win.
Pros: Shipped to your door. Great products. Awesome prices.
Cons: No cons. No worries.
Perfect fit easy installation
Pros: No cutting no drilling
Cons: None that I can see
Easy to install and sound really great for the price.
Pros: Sound great.
Great sound for a little speaker, vocal clarity with nice sounding mid and highs. Nice addition to the sound quality of ur music, for the price.
Pros: Great mids, highs and vocals.
Cons: Lacks bass
These speakers have great response and sound quality. They are all and more than I expected.
Pros: Great sound and ease of install. Packing was great as well no damage in shipping.
Not very happy with these speakers. I replaced my stock speakers with these. I'm still using my stock radio (8.4" dodge ram system) The highs are tingy and the mids and lows don't exist. I ended up putting my factory speakers back in and it sounds much better.
Cons:Crutchfield response on October 19, 2015 That's a common reaction when replacing car speakers. In the case of these Kicker speakers, they're going to need more power than your factory speakers needed in order to sound their best. They likely won't sound good at all on a factory stereo. You'll either need to add an aftermarket stereo or an amplifier (a small, 4-channel amp can supply twice the power of an aftermarket stereo and three or four times the power of the typical factory radio) or return these and get speakers with a higher sensitivity. Either way, we'll be glad to help - just give us a call.
These speakers sound great just what I needed to replace my 2003 factory ones.
Pros: Easy to install with the instructions
They sound great
Pros: Easy to install
Cons: The "adapter" kit did not seal well and I had to use foam to keep it from vibrating. Also a little disappointed about the size. Would have liked larger speakers.
These speakers were just what I needed to change out the factory speakers in a 99 Chevy Tahoe.
Pros: Easy to install and easy read instructions.
Perfect fit in the dash of my 06 Wranger. Great sound with the factory deck.
Pros: Sound Easy to install
bought the full set of replacement speakers for my 2005 jeep wrangler unlimited, easy to install and sound amazing. adapter cables came with the speakers at no charge an fast shipping.
Pros: perfect fit, great sound and adapter cables came with them
These speakers are amazing. They sound great and hit really hard when it gets loud. They are super clear and sound awesome with my subs.
Pros: Get loud. Clarity is great. Vocals are clear and not fuzzy.
Cons: Nothing bad!
Nothing but the best when it comes to buying the best products.
These speakers give great sound to any deck. Awesome power for the best price
Pros: Great sound, easy upgrade, and awesome price for the bang.
For the size, it has a better sound than the Sony XPlods I had replaced, which would pop on the lows. These tend to hand the bass a little better for their small size and they have a pretty high power handling capability as well.
Pros: Handle lows better for the size
Cons: Instructions don't tell you how to use the funkly L shaped screw mounting clips, which to me should be U shaped instead of L shaped.
Put these in my car and it was music to my ears.
Pros: Easy install. Great listening
Cons: Can't think of one.
Great sounding speakers for the money
I istalled these in my 2010 Ford Transit, WOW I should have done this years ago
Cons: No cons
Good mid level speaker for the price
Pros: good sound and easy install
Speakers were for a Toyota Sequoia. Speakers work fine and sound great as long as the back speakers are on too. Alone they lack any bass at all. Hardest piece was figuring out how to reuse the brackets from the old speakers. It would have been easier if I had new brackets which fitted both speaker and car as the included hardware could never work.
Pros: Fits in car, sound good with back speakers
Cons: Needed to reuse brackets and provide own hardware to connect to bracket. No bass if run without back speakers.
Put these in a 2002 Jeep Wrangler sound bar, and they fit perfect. Sounds great, little to no bass, but that could easily be fixed with a click of the mouse on the many subwoofers and amps on Crutchfield.com
Pros: Great price, great looks, and sounds amazing for the price. Easy install with all the free installation gear.
Cons: No bass and that's it.
Bought a pair to replace the front speakers in my Honda Element - they installed very easily and sound beyond what I expected. Liked them so much I ordered a pair to replace the rear speakers.
Pros: The sound...
Cons: That I didn't do this sooner
Sounds good. Better than factory. Good price.
Pros: Comes with plug. Comes with mounting brackets
Cons: Mounting bracket hardware broke. Had to use nuts and bolts to mount bracket to speaker. No big deal.
Sure beats the crap out of those cheap factory speakers. Plus they're not that expensive and they are easy to install.
Pros: easy install, better than factory speakers, quality materials
Excellent speakers with quick shipping
Pros: Perfect fit
Bought these to replace the front door speakers in 2001 Buick Century. Easy install and sound great
Pros: Good sound, direct fit
The kicker speakers have always been recognized as a good brand and this is no different. They are small and powerful, but when you turn the volume to almost peak, they start to get scratchy and you need to turn the music back down. However, they were a cheap set of speakers and do what they advertise so I am happy with them.
Pros: Sound Quality Easy Installation Clean Look
Cons: Sound distorted when high volume
Just installed these as replacement speakers in RV. Very pleased thus far with clarity, column, and overall performance. For the price, they are an excellent value.
Good value for the price. Easy install.
Cons: Covers don't work on the sound bar speakers.
I ordered a pair of these for my 2000 Volvo S40 . I replaced the factory speakers in the rear deck . The factory speakers had lost their surrounds and sounded awful . I replaced the factory head unit with an inexpensive jvc which is too much for these 15 year old speakers . When I hooked in these kickers wow ! The difference was amazing . The tweeters absolutely scream and the woofer delivers a surprising low end . I've ran kicker subwòofers in the past so I am aware of the high quality to value ratio . I'm more than satisfied with this product and would definitely recommend you get these . I'm going to replace my door speakers with this same pair . The install took about 15 minutes . Super easy with equipment included . The Crutchfield staff made ordering a snap and were extremely friendly and gave direct answers to my questions . So in all I would recommend this product as well as Crutchfield . More than satisfied .
Upgraded sound system on my 1993 325i with kicker front speakers and Blaupunkt amps, head unit, & sub-woofer. These speakers are a huge improvement over OEM speakers.
I got these on suggestion from one of the crutchfield team members and love them. There is still more i need to Finnish my system but with the guidance of crutchfield I have no doubt my system will rock.
Pros: All around awesome replacement speakers for jeep rollbar
Cons: None so far
Put these behind the seats in my standard cab Dodge Ram pick-up, they sound better than the Kickers DSC 41 6by9 in the front doors.
Pros: Quality materials great sound
Cons: Kickers have no cons
Excellent sound and quality compared to factory speakers.
Great speakers for the price tight clean sound.
Pros: Price Shipping speed Sound quality
Cons: Wish it had more oomph when the bass hit.
Great speakers for the money.
Pros: Sound great. Fit in stock location.
I have only good things to say. This was very quick shipping. They also give you everything you need to hook up in your vehicle. Also a pamphlet to go along with it and all the connectors are free with purchase.
Pros: This item sounds great it was everything I wanted. Kicker products are good in all qualities. They last a long time there sound is on point. I have nothing bad to say about these speakers.
Great replacement speakers for '04 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon rollbar speakers. Great instructions and Crutchfield supplied everything needed for an easy installation. Now gives me confidence to attempt replacing factory stereo head unit.
Pros: Inexpensive Quality sound Easy to install
Cons: None yet!
The bass response could have been better but I was able to compensate by maxing out the bass setting on the reciever. Otherwise the sound was good and clear. My problem is that after a summer of driving through very bumpy road construction both speakers started to buzz and rattle. One broke after a month and the other went a month later. They are now shot and I need new speakers again.
Pros: Clear sound
Cons: not durable
Great high range from such a small speaker
Pros: Crisp high range with a low profile for tight installation areas.
Cons: Small speaker with minimal low range thump.
Installed in 2005 Honda Civic rear deck. That factory speakers had more volume. Disappointed in Kicker.
Pros: Decent highs.
Cons: No bass noticeable. Factory speakers sound way better. Do not buy.Crutchfield response on April 7, 2015 It's not uncommon for people to report hearing less bass with new speakers. Factory speakers are often made of cheap, flimsy materials. When you replace that with a better quality speaker, it'll need a little more power than the cheap one did to produce the same amount of bass. But the bass (and all of the music, for that matter) that you do hear will be cleaner and more detailed.
Nice sound great price
I bought these to replace the factory speakers in the back of my Dodge Ram and offer some back seat upper end to counter the subs I just installed. They do an awesome job! Good crisp upper end even at full volume. On line fitment recommendations from Crutchfield were spot on. Speakers fit perfectly in the factory openings.
Pros: Good sound. Good fit. Good looking.
Good sound from small speaker. Great price .
Great value. If you just want to replace the stock speakers and plan on running the original deck, these are a great choice. Fit perfect and decent sound.
i installed in 1996 jeep cherokee. i used in front doors and rear overhead. .
Pros: easy to install. great fit. good sound from 5.25 speakers. i might add sub to fill in sound from rear speakers.
Cons: wiring harness kit did not fit factory plugs.
What a difference in sound from the factory speakers. Put a set in wife's 2007 KIA . They sound Great .
These sound way better than the kenwood blue 6x8's I replaced in my ranger. They sound better than the kenwood 6 1/2"s in my wife's yaris. Puts out better bass.
Pros: Loud, good bass for a small speaker. Way better than cheap kenwoods.
Cons: Rubber surround would be nice
I installed these in the sound bar as well as the dash. The adapters for the dash will allow these to fit. I actually mounted these in pods filled with poly-fill and the sounds is much improved over the stock 4x6 speakers. I don't regret getting these speakers at all. I replaced my factory head unit with a Kenwood unit.
Pros: Simple install. Improved sound.
I bought these speakers for a 2005 Honda Civic because Crutchfield recommended these. They are terrible!!!
Cons: to much highs and not enough of anything else!! I would not buy these for any reason
Wow!!! These speakers are outstanding in sound quality over the factory speakers. Even without amping them I'm impressed. Kicker simply knows what they are doing especially when you are looking for more bang for your buck.
Pros: Well built, sound quality, & Price.
Cons: None so far.
Got these to replace worn factory speakers after installing a nice receiver . They sound good at low volume but can't handle the power of the new receiver . I should've went bigger .
Pros: Easy install with supplied parts . Good replacement for factory system
Cons: Can't handle much power .
I put these front-and-rear in a Ford Aspire. The sound fantastic, and installation was super easy. Everything we needed to install was included in the kit.
Pros: Great sound. Easy install
I bought these to replace the stock speakers I have in my 86 Civic. The installation was so easy and the technical support guys were awesome and helped me out. Very pleased with Crutchfield, and beyond stoked for these speakers!
Just completed the installation of my front and rear speakers, very happy so far they sound much better than the factory speakers (Cheap junk)
Pros: Great sound so far and they look like they are made to last.
Cons: It would have helped if the installation guide had come with a vehicle specific wiring diagram which would have saved me time on trying to figure out which wires were positive and negative.
Great upgrade over factory speakers. These will pair great with a nice sub, don't expect to have window shattering bass...their just nice upgrades.
Pros: EASY INSTALL
I bought these to replace old warn out factory speakers for the rear doors in my daughter's 2002 Saturn L series. I did not have any set expectations based on the reviews already posted being across the board but I was very pleasantly surprised. For their size the do actually have decent bass. Their mid and high sections are very well rounded and do not come off as being overly bright. If and when I need to replace any speakers in my 8 year old Civic I just may end up using Kickers after all. I usually went with Kenwood, Sony or JVC (even Clarion and Pioneers) in years past but these were nicely made and look like they will hold up well. Overall, these 5 1/4's are a really nice replacement speakers for a great price.
Pros: Baskets were not too deep and will more than likely work in almost any car door. The materials in the speakers are great for longevity in the harsh "door environment" they will live in too.
Cons: The only negative that comes to mind is the single mounting pattern with virtually all 5 1/4 speakers.
Speakers are a good upgrade to the factory set, however I could have gone with a slightly larger speaker for my rear doors in a 14 tundra crewmax. Speaker sound good and should be more than enough for great sound when system is complete.
Pros: Good sound
Cons: Termination points
Great sound and quality!
Not gonna blab much, but these speakers sound good for the price. Not top of the line, but worth the price. Clear, crisp, and able to take some power.
Pros: Easy install and nice sound
Cons: Open face makes a temptation for young fingers.
I installed 4 of these guys into my 2004 Jeep Wrangler about 2 weeks ago and couldn't be more pleased. I had reasonable expectations of what they would be able to do for me and they have matached/surpassed them! These speakers are installed in the stock overhead rollbar mount (two) and in dash-mounted speaker pods (two) purchased from Crutchfield as well. They are all being pushed by a 250W amp- all together they are giving me great sound in a Jeep- which is hard to do! As can be expected, there isn't much in the way of low-end with these guys, but I have an under-seat powered sub that covers that- these guys are doing a great job covering the mids and highs!
Pros: Happy with them! Great mids and highs and they look great to boot!
Sounded better than stock speakers
Pros: Better than stock speakers. Rear speakers fit perfectly
Cons: front door speakers fit but had to drill a hole to mount better, original holes were too wide for speakers
speakers have really nice clear sound but still have enough bass to make all kinds of music listeners happy.
Pros: Clear sound
Cons: More bass
I've had these speakers for about 9 months. I've had nothing but good sound out of them. Id definitely purchase again. Good if you're not wanting to spend too much money.
Bought these as a replacement for my 4Runners stick speakers. Didn't really expect much for under $75, but I went for it. I'm really happy I did. They produce a really great overall sound. Nice and loud, haven't really put them to the test because they are still pretty new. I have no doubt that they will take it all in stride. The Alpine CDE HD149BT that is pushing all 4 Kicker CS series speakers sounds great. Want a great upgrade on your speakers on a budget, get these! Yeah you don't get the loss of a sub, but that's why you buy a sub.
Pros: Cheap, sound great, loud
Cons: No low lows
all the parts came with it to mount them and sounds good I did not even have drill holes I was very impressed
Pros: need more sizes
Cons: sounds greate
These speakers are great . For price , and sound . Very easy to install ( 15 min. ) both sides .
Pros: Price Ease of install
Speakers were very easy to install and sound great. I do not hear any vibrations, and the bass is not bad.
Pros: Very Easy to install
I installed these speakers on my wife's 2008 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4-door, into the boxes on the roll-bar. Had to use the wiring adapter, along with the bracket that was provided by Crutchfield. Although I could've used a larger speaker in the existing hole, the speakers sound great. Excellent highs and the mids sound great. I've got subwoofers so I've dialed down the bass on the speakers to keep them from distorting. These speakers are powered only by the stock radio, no amp, and they still put out great sound!! I'd buy these again for my wife's jeep any day.
Pros: Crisp highs. Clear mids.
Cons: Smaller than anticipated for the existing roll-bar hole.
These speakers are OK. Definitely an improvement over factory but I think for the money or a few dollars more there are better products
Pros: Fit in door without modifying opening or interior panel
Cons: Poor frequency range compared to the Rockford Fosgate I installed up front
Very good product at a nice price.......very good sound, can't wait to hook up the amp!
Pros: Ease of ordering, quick shipping, good product
I bought these as a set of kickers for my new Mini. they replaced polks DXI in my old car. I got the 6x9's, 51/4's and some tweeters. Sound is nice for new speakers and these little speakers have nice punch! I have an Alpine head unit and power pack with a JL mono amp and ported 12 kicker sub. I bought these for temporary speakers until could buy expensive ones. No break in time yet and I need to set the speakers to my car, but for now, I am very pleased with the quality of the sound. I may not need the expensive speakers ? Ask me in a year.......
Pros: they fit as was told and all the goodies for install was there. nice punch for little speakers!
Cons: none so far, if they last ?
Great speaker package price was better than local stores and with all the mounting brackets and wiring adapters it looks like it can't be beat . Thanks
They are reay good for the price. I had them for 3 months and 1 already blew. They cant handle a lot of bass. But great sound quality.
Would be better if cover had longer screws to fit in sound bar
Decided that it was time to upgrade my factory speakers in my 2005 Jeep Wrangler. Very happy with the quality and sound, but I'm not looking to shatter any windows with my system. Definitely an improvement from the stock speakers. Install was extremely easy and Crutchfield was excellent in telling me what to expect (that the speaker covers don't fit). Nice price, too!
Pros: Easy install, good sound.
Cons: The speaker covers don't fit in a 2005 Jeep Wrangler. No biggie, just have to use the factory covers.
They're good but one of the 2 already blew out and I still have a factory stereo
Good sound quality for the price
Pros: Great sound. Great Price.
Cons: Have to custom fit speakers to front door location of 06 Jetta
Great product for the moderate cost. Speakers sound better than the factory units without a doubt.
Pros: Moderate cost, Great sound
I install them to replace my factory speakers definitely an upgrade but bass are too weak for me, vocals are definitely clear. I was hoping for a better result. So, good enough for now.
Pros: Easy installation and perfect fit.
Cons: Not as good as advertised.
Great speaker for the money
Pros: Small but powerful
I installed these in my 2003 Dodge Stratus. Crutchfield made it extremely simple to install the speakers which was awesome. I replaced the stock speakers that were there, which were already pretty good but I just wanted a more trusted brand there. The sound is good.
Pros: easy installation good sound
Upgraded these from a set of pioneer speakers that were a couple years old and the sound was slot clearer, hit the highs and lows pretty well and sound amazing for the price. Installation was very easy
Pros: Loud. Clear. Good bass for size
Cons: None so far
Perfect fit and finish for a Wrangle sound bar. Crutchfield sent the adaptors and it was plug and play! What a difference, thanks!
Pros: The're Kickers!
I needed some low profile speakers to fill in the rear sound stage of my Rav4. These fit the bill perfectly. They are affordable, easy to install, and sound surprisingly awesome for the price. They are getting 75w from an Infinity Reference Amp hooked up to a Pioneer deck with 4v preouts. I'm happy.
Pros: Cheap, easy to install, low profile, sound great for the money.
Cons: They aren't going to impress any audiophiles.
Pros: Easy install
These replaced my factory door speakers, which were going bad. Crystal clear sound, crisp bass and clear mids and highs. I can hear sounds and notes in music that I didn't realize was there before.
Pros: Easy installation, great factory replacement, excellent sound for the money!
Cons: None so far
Definite difference in sound quality verses factory Ford Escape speakers. The sound is so much clearer with these Kickers. It won't make any difference if you're looking to improve the base, but that goes for almost all speakers. The main difference is the clearness. I can pick out different instruments much easier with these. Great speakers for the price. Pair them with a sub and the sound will rock.
Pros: Clear sound
I installed these in my 02 explorer sport track and am blown away by the clarity of the speakers. These are what I was looking for to start my audio build in my truck and they are a great fit.
Pros: Great clarity and great price.
Cons: Not enough bass.
The speaker are low cost and so is the audio. I installed these on a 3008 Honda Civic and it took me no more than 30 minutes to do it. They will provide a way better quality audio than your factory speakers (unless you are driving a luxury car), but the sound is not exactly the best. My wife 2006 X3 with factory speakers have better sound.
Pros: Price Good quality for the price
Cons: Is not a top of the line sound quality, is ok but not super.
Very good speakers. Sound great for the money. - Bass: 3/5 - Mid range: 4/5 - High range: 5/5 (Very clear)
Used them with a Pioneer radio. Very good speakers. Price to quality ratio is awesome.
Pros: - Cheap - Great speakers - Good quality
Cons: - Bass could sound better, however I believe that purchasing a box for the truck would solve this issue.
fit just fine no issues
Pros: good highs and mid range
Cons: no bass response sounded almost like just a tweeter, would have sent them right back but did not want to loose the $10 for returning them, I put them in the rear door and still need fronts that are better then stock! I will find it hard to buy speakers again with out hearing them first! I find it hard to believe they had a 4+ rating
Much better than stock 99 jeep speakers.
Pros: Perfect fit, highs sound great, some bass
Cons: None so far
Easy to install, great integration with factory system.
Pros: Great high & midrange.
Cons: Poor bass performance
They installed nicely . They look great . It's a shame I had to cover them up . They sound nice .
Pros: Sound really nice
Excellent sound. Put these in a 2004 Mini Cooper and they are a million times better than the stock system. Crutchfield provided everything I needed to install them including step by step directions. Very Easy! Thanks Crutchfield!
Pros: Excellent Sound Crisp Highs and mids
Not the absolute best, but for the money you can't beat them. This is my second set. First set were 6 1/2 in my Subaru and now 5 1/4 in my old BMW.
Pros: They fit! They can take a lot of power, decent lows, crisp highs, and they sound good.
Cons: This doesn't really matter if you're putting them in a door, but I wish the grill provided more protection and actually covered the tweeter.
I installed these in my 1997 BMW 318i sedan as what i thought would be a small upgrade. I guess i needed to upgrade my head unit / put in an amplifier because these speakers were half as good as the 16 year old factory speakers. They would probably be great but i would not recommend them unless you have a newer car or are willing to replace more than just the front (kick panel) speakers.
Pros: Looked cool and fairly inexpensive
Cons: Sounded scratchy, when bass hit you could just tell something was off. Not crisp sound.
I have all 4 speakers in my car by Kicker. I'm nothing but satisfied, Sounds great and easy installation.
Excellent replacement for my stock radio. Much louder than expected over stock speaker.
Pros: Should also sound even better if hooked up to an amp
Good speakers for the price. Replacing blown factory door speakers in my 2008 altima. A little light on the lows but I was expecting that. Handles the factory head unit fine. I was worried about putting a 4 ohm speaker in there where the factory speakers were 2 ohm but I don't notice much of a volume decrease.
Pros: inexpensive Decent Sound
Great speakers for the size.
Pros: Sound is crisp
Surprisingly good punch, better than the $5 cheaper Sonys i put in another car. same size
Pros: sound, price.
Cons: ugly grill
Pros: Crutchfield is behind you all the way
Cons: None so far.
These speakers made a nice improvement to the sound quality in my vehicle. Some of the reviews I read said they lacked low end, I would disagree, for their size I was pleasantly surprised by the low end. I am running four speakers in a crew cab.
good replacement speaker.as good as factory speaker if not better
Pros: mounted like factory with the kit.
Kickers are a great speakers. It made my receiver come alive. ...very happy..
Put these in an 06 Wrangler. They fit the roll bar pods nicely, but the they don't fit well in the factory grilles and the accompanying grilles don't fit the Jeep rollbar housings. The sound quality is a great improvement over the factory speakers and installation was simple with the Crutchfield sheet and the pigtail adapters.
Pros: Great sound. Easy install. Price.
Cons: Neither the factory grilles, (split one of mine on the first one) nor the Kicker grilles fit for my application.
These speakers are great factory replacements. Leaves a little to be desired in bass response though. The factory BMW speakers had better base.
Pros: Amazing clarity. I hear things in songs that I had never heard before.
Cons: Bass response
Installed 4 in a 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse. Was bummed when I saw I could have gone bigger!
Pros: great sound, work well with Kentwood DPX500BT tuner, could still install 75 watt amp in future.
Cons: Nothing with speaker. Was suprised to see stock front door speakers were 6x9. I could have ordered at least 6" round and probably a nice 6 x9, but I did not see that as an option on Crutchfield fitment database.
Overall, very satisfied with these speakers. The sound really is sharp and clear. I installed them in my 2003 Jeep Wrangler. Only thing that could be better are the bass hits. Still better than stock.
Pros: Clear sound. Easy install. Good price. Crisp highs.
Cons: Bass isn't as deep as I expected.
There's nothing else to say about Kicker products except they are the best speakers on the market hands down. If you are able to install these speakers you will be amazed with the quality. I have been listening to Kicker products since I was in high school and that was a long time ago. Kicker has been around a long time and they have cornered the market with their quality products. Every vehicle I own I always upgrade with Kicker and I'm always satisfied. If you need an adapter to install these speakers I'm sure Crutchfield has it. I know because I have ordered them on many occasions and Crutchfield always has what I need.
Pros: Best speakers on the market hands down. Crutchfield always has the adapters I need to install them no matter what vehicle I'm installing them in.
Cons: No cons!!!!!!
I installed these in the rear doors of my Toyota Tacoma. They sound great. Much better than the factory speakers.
Pros: Easy to install Good Sound
I recently installed these in the back doors of my 08 Silverado extended cab. They do not come with brackets, or make any that I know of. I followed some suggestions I found online and used the existing bracket. I simply used a razor knife to cut the paper woofer away from the surround, then a small hand saw to cut through the plastic brackets on the back side. The speaker simply falls away from the frame. These Kickers fit "almost" perfectly into the existing bracket, except for the mounting screw slots which just barely overlap the edge of the bracket. This is easily fixed by placing the speaker where you want to mount it, use a sharpie to mark the edges of the overlap, and then take a sharp knife to cut away those spots and voila, it fits like a gem. Use some small screws to mount the speaker and you're done. These along with the 6 1/2" for the fronts have make a huge improvement in sound quality even without replacing the stock head unit.
Pros: Easy install in my 81 jeep scrambler , great sound.
Better than stock speakers.
Pros: Has a clear,crisp bass and sound.
Great sound quality! It's not a booming sound, but it's much better than what I had and better than expected.
Pros: Great sound for the price and size!
Cons: No cons. Very satisfied!
These sound great! Crisp, clear highs! I didn't expect to hear a lot of bass with them so I wasn't disappointed by that but they do have a little! If you're looking for an overall sound with decent bass look somewhere else. 5 1/4" coax speakers simply don't have the capacity! I'm running these off an alpine head unit for now but I'll eventually add an amp to give them a little more power. For now, they do the job and didn't cost me an arm and a leg! Great value!
Pros: Good sound at a good price!
Cons: None yet!
very good sound quality
The car does not offer any opportunity to go bigger as far as fitment, but the selection to choose from balances that out, as I really thought about what type of music I would be plaing the majority of the time, and going with the specifics of each speaker, I made the best choice as all of the music is crystal clear and full of sound from the highs to the lows.
Pros: Simple and easy install
Cons: I had to do the work myself to get to install them.
In an era of "fiscal responsibility" I've been stuck with a 2002 Honda Civic. I've always had great stock stereo speakers. You can imagine my dismay at getting into the Civic and turning the radio on for the first time. It was like it wasn't stereo. So I was helped by a Crutchfield sales rep that told me these would liven things up. When I turned the new radio on with the speakers it was like Dorothy opening up the door for the first time when she landed on OZ, when it went from B&W to color. Tight base, nice sound separation. I am very pleased and would highly recommend especially if you're on a tight budget.
Pros: Great sound separation, tight base
Great value & easy installation! Thanks!
These speakers were barely an improvement over the factory speakers, so given the effort of installation (which was not much), I can't rate them any higher than 2 stars. The moral of the story is that if you are going to go to the trouble of installing new speakers, spend some money and get some good ones.
Pros: Crutchfield made the installation easy, with the included speaker bracket and wiring adapter.
