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.

Product Highlights:

  • 2-way 6-1/2" speakers (pair)
  • polypropylene woofer cone with polyester foam surround
  • 1/2" PEI balanced dome tweeter
  • power range: 2-100 watts RMS (300 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 40-20,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 90 dB
  • top-mount depth: 1-13/16"
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Why replace your car's original speakers?

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.

Easy to install and sound great in my 2011 Chevy 1500 ext. cab. Only have the front two in right now having issues making something to put in the back doors.

Pros: Easy of installation and sound for the price hard to beat.

Cons: No adaptors for the back doors kind of a pain to make something for them.

The worst speakers for bass!

Written By Ed, Massachusetts on Sunday, June 07, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I hate giving negative reviews but please if you want to buy something to listen to rap with a lot of bass do NOT buy these speakers. I purchased these speaker based on the recommendation from Crutchfield. When I asked witch speakers are bast for good bass and they told me to buy these Kickers. I also checked the reviews and they were fairly possible but boy I regret buying these things. The bass is the same as the factory speakers, I do not know how that possible because based on speakers it should perform much better especially with my nice JVC head unit, but boy these things are JUNK! Do not get me wrong the sound quality is good but it does not handle bass at all it gets distorted and sounds like crap. In other words waste of money, I am going to toss these in the trash or sell them for next to nothing once I find the speakers that I am actually happy with.

Pros: Good sound quality

Cons: Does NOT handle bass at all!

Crutchfield response on Monday, June 08, 2015 That's a common reaction when replacing car speakers. What you can expect to hear from a new speaker is better clarity and definition in the mids and highs. So your music will sound better and more lifelike, but you might not hear more bass. The only way to get more bass is to add more power is to add an amplifier. A small (40-50 watts), 4-channel amp can supply twice the power of an aftermarket stereo and three or four times the power of the typical factory radio. That'll improve all the sound, but you'll especially hear it in the fullness of the bass.

Used these 6.5 inch 100W Kicker speakers as replacement to my factory head unit. Work fine and the sound is clear and crisp. Good product so far(2 weeks in Truck). Crutchfield a joy to buy from as their customer service is OUTSTANDING!! They cover all the small bases I would not even think of till I was balls deep in replacing the speakers. Thank You Kicker and Crutchfield.

Pros: nice price point, crisp sound, 2 day shipping

Cons: No complaints.

Great Speakers

Written By AF, Atlanta, GA on Tuesday, June 02, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I love these speakers! I installed them in a 2007 Jeep Wrangler sound bar with a factory radio and they increased the sound quality drastically. The factory speakers were horrible, to say the least, and these were recommended by a Crutchfield advisor. I have no complaints. I got them with the adapter for wiring and mounting brackets but ended up not needing those.

Pros: Sound, size, ease of installation, price

Cons: Wish they had a bit more bass but they're still fine

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great sound, deeper bass and crisp highs. I'm running them thru a JVC KW-V21B and the sound over stock is amazing. If you are looking for pounding bass you will need a sub but for great sound at a fair price these are the ticket. Glad I took the online tech advise from Crutchfield.

Pros: Awesome!!!

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought these to replace a pair of Alpines that only last a few years. When I installed the Alpines I was worried about the quality of the speaker material as it seemed cheap. However, when I installed these Kicker speakers, I couldn't be happier with the build quality. I ran new 14 gauge wire through the door and the car to the trunk where I have a 4 channel amp dedicated to just the speakers. So far these sound great, crisp and clear. I cannot wait to enjoy these on longer road trips, once theyr'e broken in the sound should be good. So far the improvement of sound is very noticeable, and nothing but in a good way. The brackets that came with the speakers from Crutchfield did Not fit a 2005 civic coupe however, not the end of the world as I just mocked up the position and then went to work mounting each up to the door panel. No worries for someone who has lots of tools and up for the slight challenge. The end result is well worth it. Shipping was fast, and packaging of the items was perfect. I checked the prices of these speakers around the inter-webs and also in local stores before I purchased and I was impressed to see that Crutchfield was the winner hands down, nice to see that! Hope this review helps others, I did a lot of research to find the right speaker and it looks like these are going to be a perfect fit.

Pros: Build Quality, RMS rating was high enough for my Amp, Sound is full & Crisp, Shipping is fast

Cons: Speaker Brackets included from Crutchfield said to fit a 2-dr civic coupe did Not fit, had to modify (a lot) to make work.

No Bass

Written By Anonymous, washington DC on Tuesday, May 26, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased these to install in my 2015 honda accord. I installed these and hooked up a 4-channel amp to the factory sound system. The amp was rated at 45-watts per channel. Even with all that power these speakers had zero bass. I mean none. So I disconnected the Amp and ran the speakers on the factory head unit. It was even worst without the amp. The factory head unit did not have enough power to run them correctly. I removed the kicker speakers and put the factory speakers back in the car. Now the system souds good. It is strange to me thatthese speakers have no bass even when they are being fed adequate power. Poor design

Pros: none

Cons: no bass

As expected
