Kicker 40CS654

It's time for an upgrade

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.  

Built tough

Kicker's 40CS654 speaker set provides low-end from a tough 6-1/2" 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 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.

Great Sound for my kids car! Put in 2005 Dodge Stratus Coupe.

Pros: Good highs and mid range sound

Cons: Zero bass

Great sounding speakers

2010 Hyundai Santa Fe

Installed these in my 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe, powered by a Rockford Fosgate Prime R400 4D amp. Easy install with Crutchfield kit. Sound great, handles what the RF puts out extremely well. Sound fantastic, sending the low base through the subs, and the rest of the signal through the Kickers. They have impressed me, especially at such a reasonable price tag.

Pros: Sound great. Have handled everything my amp has thrown at them. Highly recommend. Fantastic bang for the buck!!

Cons: None

Just replaced the 19yo stock speakers in my chevrolet single cab truck with these and the matching 4x6s. Im blown away by the volume and clarity! Im pushing them with a pioneer deh head unit and they're plenty loud, i couldn't imagine running an amp to these. It would make your ears bleed! Well probably not but i do highly recommend these for any stock upgrade, you wont be disappointed.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've been using these speakers in my truck for about two years now. I'm very impressed with these speakers for the price. They have adequate bass and sound great running off of the stock HU. Would recommend these to anyone, I've used more expensive Rockford's before and these are just as good in my opinion. Great buy. Also dealing with Crutchfield is always an added bonus. They're amazing!

Pros: Good bass, work well on lower power setups, and will take some abuse

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fantastic upgrade for my 2016 Mazda 3. But I did need to do some research on finding the right brackets and wiring harnesses for my model year. The ones supplied from Crutchfield don't work for the front... For the 2016 Mazda 3 get the Metra 82-7501 Speaker Plates and Metra 72-5602 4-Way Speaker Harness made everything plug and play.

Pros: Awesome sound even at high volumes.

Cons: What's not to like.

Will G from Phoenix, AZ on 9/5/2016

2000 Chevrolet Tahoe
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had to replace the original speakers in my 2000 Tahoe. They were not blown but they were not great sounding either as far as 16 year old factory speakers were concerned. After upgrading the factory sub woofer (that were blown) it just made sense to upgrade the speakers. I heard good things about these Kickers when it came to price and performance but decided to replace just the front two speakers first. After listening to them I WILL be getting another set for the rear! I got a lot for my money. Note: Other retailers sell the exact same speakers for the exact same amount of money. However Crutchfield throw in free installation hardware as well. It's a no brainer. Crutchfield got this one hands down.

Pros: Great upgrade from stock.

Cons: None so far.

rear speaker upgrade success story

Tom M from Wayland, MA on 8/27/2016

1998 Volvo V70 GLT
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased these speakers to replace a blown left rear speaker and upgrade. The Kickers were well made, and I did not need any of the adapter kit parts except for eight common self-tapping screws. The Kickers had flanges that mounted directly into my OEM holders, with great help from the documentation. I was also able to effectively use the short cables with the Kickers to adapt the wiring directly to my Volvo holders with only 4 solder connections. The result uses the original Volvo cables and plugs, and sounds great with much better bass response than before. This made me very happy!

Pros: Very easy work to retrofit into existing Volvo rear door speaker holders, all results are compatible with existing wiring and fit and sound great.

Cons: I could have done the work without the adapter kit, but it was better to have it available just in case.

Very easy to install. Very good efficiency compared to other speakers. Would recommend buying an subwoofer to go with these if you're into bass but if you just need enough to kick a little, these are a very very good buy.

Adam from Chicago, IL on 8/18/2016

2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers are really amazing over the stock units that came in my 2013 Jeep Wrangler. Fairly easy install. I recommend doing a google search and watching one of the many video demonstrations for how this should be done. The sound bar replacement is a piece of cake. The dashboard is a bit more complicated. The Crutchfield instructions call for nearly a complicated full removal of the dashboard, which is absolutely not necessary. This install is much easier once you watch a few of the videos for how to remove the speaker boxes and re-use the gasket mount from the factory speaker. As others have mentioned, fill the boxes with a small amount of polyfil and you're going to be incredibly pleased with the sound. The difference is night and day.

Pros: Crisp sound. Much improved Bass. Beautiful Mids. Fairly easy Install.

Cons: Range of Bass is slightly limited, but still a vast improvement over stock. A lot of people add a separate sub and/or amp, which I have not done yet.

Daniel from Los Angeles, CA on 8/9/2016

2008 Honda Civic LX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After seeing how many reviews/how popular this product I really wanted to see for myself how these speakers sound. I went to Best Buy and saw these connected to a Pioneer deck (which I have). Out of all the 6.5" coxial speakers on display, which included Pioneer TS-A1675R, Alpine Type-S, and all other popular speakers within the price range.. the Kicker 40CS654 were the only speakers to handle adding bass boost even up to +6 on almost full volume! All the other speakers would distort after +2 bass boost, which really impressed me. After that experience, I decided to purchase them. I first purchased them on July 31st and the projected eta was Aug 4th. On Aug 1st, the UPS label was created.. but was stuck there and the package was not scanned.. on Aug 4th, the speakers were not delivered. I contacted Crutchfield customer service on Aug 5th telling them my situation and the associate gave me a new order with free overnight shipping.. which the next business day will be Aug 8th. That is so awesome of them! UPS label was created within the next hour, scanned, and delivered on Aug 8th. The old order is still in "created label"... Guess they never received it. I have a Pioneer DEH-X5800HD with no amp. These speakers sound great paired with them! I know they have to "break in" but they put out more bass than my Rockford Fosgate Prime R165X3's which they replaced. I will definitely put have another pair for the my rear deck. The tweeters are a bit harsh if

Pros: Good clarity, great bass (even with bass boost), great price, shallow size, and quality build. I know for sure these will sound very nice powered by an amp. I will most likely purchase an Alpine KTP-445U to power these bad boys.

Cons: Didn't buy these speakers to begin with.

These speakers fit my needs perfectly. They perform well with good bass for a 6.5" speaker and were not terribly difficult to install in my car with the help of a dremel. They can also go much louder than my stock speakers without distortion.

Pros: Good quality Decent bass for 6.5" Loud compared to stock

Cons: None

The speakers are great, and I thoroughly enjoy hearing the higher range that the speakers give. It has helped to really improve the quality of the music

Pros: Great upper range Really easy installation

Cons: The mounting brackets that came with it had to be modified slightly to get them to fit properly

Great speaker to replace horrible factory speakers!

KCCOpper from McHenry, IL on 7/23/2016

Installed these to replace the HORRBILE stock speakers in my 2015 Wrangler (with base system) in the front dash. Man, what difference! Even without an amp the bass response is 100% better! I can actually listen to music over "20" without distorting the sound.

Pros: Great sound. Low mounting depth. Sound great even without amp.

Cons: Not direct a direct fit, will need the mounting/install kit and had to still drill some holes.

A Solid Set of Speakers

Derrick from Columbus, OH on 7/15/2016

2002 Honda Civic LX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm very happy with this purchase. When paired with a powerful amp, these guys thump. The highs are crisp and the kick is powerful. The only area lacking would be in the lower bass. So there is definitely room for adding a sub in the mix. But if you are just looking for good sounding speakers to replace your factory set, this is a great way to go. Even when I've cranked the stereo, these speakers keep up. I'm constantly surprised how much power these guys can push. They really THUMP!

Pros: Great range of power. Can run directly off the OEM head unit, an aftermarket head unit or (to really release their full potential) a nice amp. Lots of head room so crank it up and enjoy the sound with the windows down.

Cons: Not as full range as I had hoped. The bass can be a bit weak. Requires really pushing the lower end of the EQ. I will probably be adding a sub to my setup sometime soon.

The kickers I purchased sound crisp and clear at all levels. Most diffidently an improvement from the original equipment. I would recommend these to anyone looking to turn up the volume on their favorite music no matter what they listen to. I will make one suggestion, if you have four speakers replace all of them not just the ones you think need replacing.

Pros: Great improvement , sound great

Cons: None

I never replaced car speakers before, but Crutchfield made it very easy! The speakers fit well in the car doors with the Scosche SA-69 Speaker Mounting Brackets and the Metra 71-050 Speaker Wiring Adapters. Speakers sound great!

Pros: The mounting brackets and wiring adapters made the installation easy.

Cons: The directions for the mounting brackets were somewhat contradictory, but I figured out what needed to be done.

good value speaker

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Connected to a Kenwood KDC-695 replacing the rear speakers only (so far). These speakers give amazing high range ( I had to lower the gain from +5 to +2) and decent mid range response! I am still tweeking the frequencies to get the illusive mid-bass I like to hear (more hopefully on that later.)

Pros: GREAT value for the money- especially with the (free) mounting braket and stock speaker wire harness adapter.

Cons: I haven't had the volume high enough long enough to see if they would 'break'. But Nothing bad to say so far.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I needed to replace the 22 year old factory cassette head unit in my work truck and figured while I was in there I might as well replace everything else. It was fairly easy to do following the included instructions. They are drilled for several mounting options, one door fit perfect on the first try the other I needed to try about every angle I could to get the holes to match up. User error but a strange problem considering the first side worked so well. They sound decent good clean highs the low end needs work but I am too lazy to put in a sub.

Pros: affordable, decent sound, easy to install.

Cons: not great low end but I knew that buying them.

These speakers have been a nice upgrade for the rear doors over the factory speakers, in my 2016 F150. Highs have been crisp and lows have had solid punch. The fit is perfect thanks to the free mounting brackets Crutchfield included with the order. I will soon be looking to add an amp to these and the front doors speakers to meet my sound quality needs, but these speakers are immediately a huge upgrade over factory.

Pros: Fit, Highs, Lows, Price

The speakers are excellent. They have great clarity, nice bass tones for 6 1/2" and I can hear every crisp note. The only complaint I have was the soldering on the connections were too much and I had to file them down a bit. Over all I love Crutchfield. Where else can you get a product for 1 price and everything you need to install it; directions and connectors for the money? This is an excellent company and I will be back! I highly recommend Crutchfield

Pros: Excellent Speakers for the price.

So far so good. Install needed minor mods to the plastic install bracket. The front side needed a mod to the OEM bracket. The sound is much better than stock. The stereo has not been replaced yet but that is next. The bass of these speakers is good. It adds that needed sound. I would buy them again.

Pros: Kicking bass

Cons: not a perfect fit but very minor mods

I bought these for my 2006 Chevy Express full sized van and they are awesome. After upgrading my headunit to a Pioneer Bluetooth enabled unit the stock speakers always rattled. These solved the problem and have a much wider response. Also, they bolted right in without the need of adapters. I literally swapped both front door speakers in less than 30 minutes. I found an online video on how to remove the door panels which was pretty easy.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am very happy with everything. The speakers were an upgrade from factory speakers. What an improvement! They were easy to install after looking at the information Crutchfield sent me. The free speaker mounting adapter made mounting the speakers a snap. One reviewer said the screws were too long and he was right. I cut them off and they worked great. After all, they came with the speakers, not the adapter! I looked at a you tube video on how to remove my door panel but it was not right. The information Crutchfield sent was right in every way! Some reviewers said there was not much bass, but it was at least as good if not better. The highs were much better. I wish I had don't this a long time ago! I will do business with Crutchfield again, they make it easy.

Pros: easy, improved sound.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fit and install was easy, it handles the factory power with ease, clean highs, punchy mid-high bass but like others, the cheap almost no magnet factory speaker had more low end bass. 4 of these to replace factory for mids and highs would be fine but then your going to need a sub woofer to replace the bass. Note: same speaker in 2 different vehicles gave a completely different bass response. car was poor and truck was great. it might be the head unit and other factors that gave this install a bad bass response.

Pros: Cheap, easy install, well built and will prob outlast the car.

Cons: No low bass

Adam from Asheboro, NC on 3/29/2016

Just installed these in my 2000 GMC Sierra 1500. They fit perfect and have great sound, especially some good bass. I compared these to other 6.5's in a big box store, and for the price, these were best. The only mod I had to make was the mounting screws provided were way too long. They kept me from being able to snap in the bracket. Luckily I had some extra smaller screws sitting around that I could use.

Pros: Thump

Cons: Not 3-way

Should be in its own class

Bruce from Fairfax, VA on 3/21/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Ok, let me start by saying that this is not a high end speaker. Now let me continue by saying that it is a pretty good speaker, in fact, one that offers something that many (most) 6.5" high end speakers don't offer---acceptable mid-bass. I've read lots of reviews. Everyone gushes over the Focals and JLs adding that they will be fine when a sub is added (which it will, at this level of audio). Enter the Kicker CS coaxial speaker. It is a little powerhouse capable of filling out the mid-bass of non-subwoofer systems so they sound pretty darn good. I even read a Crutchfield review of the JL Evolution series speaker that noted the bass was a little weak but rescued by the Kicker CS in the rear doors. Having read this, and having heard the CS compared with the KS and other brands locally, my ears told me that this speaker somehow offers something special that the higher end speakers are not. Right off the bat it plays lower frequencies (down to 35 or 40 Hz) with a rigid cone that produces a tighter, more aggressive bass response. Its tweeters are bright, easy to distinguish above the bass, which is perfect for coaxials in the rear doors, but maybe a bit too bright to have blasting from the dash (in the CSS component speakers)...but it does the mid-bass so nicely that I am considering it for the front. VERDICT - The CS should be the first in a new class of speaker that I will call the "Mid-Sub Rear Door (MSRD)" speaker. No other speaker does what it does.

Pros: Durable quality construction, tight sound, probably the best mid-bass in its class

Cons: tweeters a tad bright for the silk-dome crowd

Pros: Probably last longer that the stokers as seems good quality, easy fit...matches stock location on my 2000 Jeep XJ

Cons: Not any better than the 2000 jeep speakers....

Ryan from katy, TX on 3/18/2016

2012 Honda Accord
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used these to replace the factory speakers in my Honda Accord and I couldn't be happier. They really bring out the mids and highs, although they're a little lacking on bass - to be expected from speakers this size. I will say that the bass they do produce is very clean with no distortion or humming that you typically get from cheaper speakers. As always, Crutchfield is on point with their installation materials and instructions, install went as smoothly as possible. I'd highly recommend these for anyone looking to build a sound system, they're a huge upgrade over most factory speakers, and will really shine when paired with subwoofers.

Pros: Great clarity on the highs and mids

Cons: Lacking on the low end, but the bass they do produce sounds very clean

I have been looking for replacement speakers for my 2003 Escalade for sometime now. The Bose factory system sounded really good, but the speakers were 1-way and they were 13 years old so it was time to replace them. These kicker CS series were perfect because I do a lot of studio mixing and mastering, and every sound engineer knows that you need a great reference system to compare your mixes to. I highly recommend the speakers if you are looking for a balanced frequency response across the audible spectrum!

Pros: Awesome design, excellent frequency response, ample power handling capacity

Cons: None

I put these speakers in all 4 doors of a 2006 CR-V along with an Alpine head unit (Alpine CDE-152) and the inline Alpine 45X4 RMS amp (Alpine KTP-445A Power Pack) which fit in the dash behind the head unit. Highs are crisp and clean, as much as they can be as coax's behind door panels. However, when you turn on the "Bass Engine" on the head unit, you would swear there is a small sub hiding somewhere in the car. Very pleased with the overall package.

Pros:

Wes from Maryland on 2/27/2016

2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Ordered 2-pairs of these to replace the stock speakers in my '12 Silverado Crew Cab. I had been noticing that the stock speakers needed more volume to hear clearly as time went on. The installation was fairly simple, took between 2-3 hours to replace all four door speakers. It helped having the adapters and wiring harnesses included as they probably saved an hour over soldering and prepping the old speaker frames to accept the new Kickers. About the sound - these kickers are clearer and louder than stock by a pretty wide margin. I ran two of these in the back doors so I could compare against the stock speakers in the front doors and one thing really stood out - the bass. These Kickers don't have the deep, muddy bass that the stock speakers have. But the mid and high-range clarity that you gain in it's place makes up for it and that's what I really needed so that I could hear my music over the road noise. Crutchfield was great - quick, free shipping and lots of extras (plus instructions.) Nice deal. But I did order scratch and dents and one speaker cone was cracked. Sealed it up with some clear nail polish and it seems fine that way.

Pros: Clarity, mid-range and dB sensitivity.

Cons: A little short on the bass side.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

So first off I just want to say that these speakers sound amazing, I am running them on my alpine head unit and nothing more and they give out clear sound all around and booming bass when I want it. I installed these in all 4 doors on my Toyota Tundra double cab (even though according to crutchfield they wouldn't fit in the front doors). It did take a little monkeying with the bracket to make it fit in the front (I believe if I had ordered the 6 3/4" size it would've fit in a lot easier) but in all it was a very easy install and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who cares about the sound in their car/truck.

Pros: Good sound, powerful bass

Cons: Crutchfield was misinformed about the compatability of these speakers with my truck.

Awesome Speakers!

Excellent sound - huge improvement over OEM speakers (even with OEM in-dash head unit outputs)! A little adventure adapting them to the cutouts in my 2013 Veloster (cutouts were larger than the speakers, and recommended adapters didn't help much), but in the final analysis I am very pleased and would definitely recommend them.

Pros: Excellent full range sound; efficient enough to use with OEM head unit - external amplifier not needed

Cons: none

I replaced my stock Jeep wrangler rear speakers with these. I honestly can't tell the difference in volume, distortion, or frequency response.....

Pros: None I can think of.

Cons: They cost money. The stock ones were included with the Jeep.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased these speakers hoping to upgrade the sound of my factory sound system in my 2015 Honda Accord. After installing, it's safe to say that the factory system put out wayyy more sound than these. Possibly because factory radio is under powered for the speakers, not sure. Regardless, I would have been better off leaving everything factory.

Pros: Nice highs, look good

Cons: Low sound, low powered mids, overall disappointed by the sound.

Fantastic upgrade

T394 from California on 1/16/2016

I upgraded my Chevy Silverado to these speakers and the transition was insane. Unbelievable crispness and true sound. The tools that crutchfield provided made the process 100xs easier than if I had tried it myself.

Pros: Crutchfield tools matched factory perfectly. Sound was amazing for speakers at any price.

Cons: Nothing I can think of.

Money well spent!

Only had them for a week but LOVE how they sound. My truck had the original speakers from 1995 so of course these are a huge boost but the sound is crisp and clear. I use the dynamic setting on my jvc deck and I couldn't be more pleased with the sound!

Pros: Price, sound quality

Cons: none

Great Speakers

Roscoe from North Carolina on 1/14/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The speakers definitely do what they are designed to do. They are a small cone size to begin with so don't expect amazing mid-range punch. However, the woofer working with the integrated tweeter produces an overall very good sound quality in the mid-high range. Excellent clarity and very crisp sound. I installed these to replace factory BOSE speakers in a cadillac SRX. So even over a premium factory sound system it was an improvement. And these things are cheap too so its a win win. I am very satisfied. My only disappointment with the product is that it did not come with a Kicker sticker which I think looks really cool.

Pros: Ease of installation Price Sound quality

Cons: None

Ordering was easy, received what I ordered quickly. These speakers replaced factory speakers in a 2015 Nissan Altima. They were extremely easy to install with supplied brackets and the sound is excellent with the factory head unit. I now have 6 of these in the car( front doors, rear doors and rear deck). You can't beat these speakers for the price.

Pros: Sound great, comes with everything you need to install, great price

Cons: none at this time

Awesome replacement speakers compared to the factory speakers. I just replaced my Honda Civic factory speakers with this and I am glad I did. The sound is great and they provide more bass, yes, more bass than the factory ones. Thank you Kicker, you kick some bass.

Pros: Great sound and bass.

Cons: Could not find one.

MarkC from Texas on 1/8/2016

2001 Chrysler 300M
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought two pairs of these speakers for my daughter's car when one of the front speakers start rattling. I replaced the front speakers immediately and noticed they didn't have nearly the bass as the original factory speakers. I was a little disappointed at first because there was way too much ear-piercing treble. I adjusted the EQ to where it was tolerable. But that's not where the story ends. The factory unit only put out about 8 to 10 watts per channel. For a graduation gift I decided I would install a premium stereo in her car, two pairs of these Kickers, along with a sub and amp. I installed a Pioneer 80PRS head unit, these speakers, a 12" Digital Designs sub, and a 5-channel JBL amp pushing 75 WPC on these, and 350 watts on the sub. After installing the HU and amp these speakers came to life! They sound absolutely amazing! As clear as can be in 60 hertz range and up. These speakers can handle power flawlessly, and sound extremely good doing it. The point is, if your just replacing factory speakers, these speakers may or may not be what your looking for. If your looking to add to your stereo later, these speakers will most definitely fit the bill. With the low power that most factory units put out these won't "wow" you, but if you add a little power they will.

Pros: Clean sound, good staging, and excellent power handling.

Cons: Don't really sound very good with a low wattage head unit.

Terrible sound and experience

BrianB from Oklahoma on 1/7/2016

2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these speakers to replace the factory front door speakers on my 2008 Trailblazer SS Bose with Nav. I installed the the drivers side speaker, then tested it. The passenger, factory speaker was much louder at a given volume, and the sound was much better. Called Crutchfield support was told that Bose has some kind of crossover filter that blocks high frequencies, preventing the Kicker (2-way) speaker from getting the full range of sound. Also, the Kicker speaker requires much more power than the factory speaker, so at any volume the factory speaker sounded louder. I bought both the front and rear Kickers, but was told by the sales person not to replace the factory tweeters in the dash. Because the kicker speaker takes more power, the tweeter is blasting you out when you turn up the volume. Bottom line, these speaker would not work with the rest of my factory components. The sales person should have known that, and directed me to other products. I returned them.

Pros: None

Cons: Couldn't say anything good, sounded terrible in my car

Sounds great

Greg from Maine on 1/3/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After doing the research I decided to order speakers from Crutchfield rather than get the same kickers from an ebay source, because I thought the extra accessories would be helpful, and they were. The package arrived literally the next afternoon, less than 48 hours. I bought the foam speaker enclosures and cut an inch diameter hole in the back of them for the wire to go through and "breathing" air for the speaker. When clamping the foam into the OEM replacement plastic clip-ons it's a tight fit but the idea is to not have something in the door buzz... which would drive me crazy. Others have discussed the bass response as lacking but I found the bass from my stock head unit set to "jazz" was more distinct, not louder but "better" than the OEM speakers. Which were both broken lol. Look at your OEM speaker, it weighs half of what these kickers weigh, with cheap paper cone and flimsy foam surround, it's a wonder they lasted this long. Now it sounds like I'm standing next to a drum kit when Phil hits the toms. I only replaced the door speakers, and now due to some serious turning up the volume the back door speakers are crackling and I'll probably have to replace those also since they are ruining the sound from the new speakers.

Pros: Installing the speaker is easier than removing the door panel.

Cons: The instructions were a little lacking, but I figured it out intuitively. At first it appeared there were no screws to attach the speaker to the supplied plastic snap-in bezel. I bought some nuts and bolts from the hardware store, then discovered the screws were in the plastic wrap of the second speaker I had not completely unwrapped yet. For this installation you don't use the grill cover that comes with the speaker.
