Road noise can often obscure the all-important high frequencies in your music. Result? Your tunes sound dull and lifeless, with poor stereo imaging. Kicker's KS693 6" x 9" speakers feature 3/4" and 1" titanium dome tweeters that provide a crisp, clean sound that cuts through interference with ease. You'll revel in detailed, realistic music when you play your favorite tracks.

These 3-ways don't neglect the low frequencies, either. The high-performance polypropylene woofer cones keep their shape when the music's turned up loud so the bass stays true. High-strength steel baskets, heavy-duty internal parts, and synthetic rubber surrounds combine to create strong, stable speakers with excellent accuracy.

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.

Well I have to say these are one of the best sounding 6"x9" speakers I've ever heard. They complement my Kicker 04SS652 component speakers very well, with a surprising amount of bass. Snappy highs, with no distortion even at very high volume.

Hooked them up to an Eclipse amp I had laying around and bridged them to 150x2 at 4-ohms, and these things take it, and beg for more!

I highly recommend these speakers for anyone thats looking for a sweet sounding speaker at a nice price. But be sure to put an amp on these to fully take advantage of what they have to offer!

I installed these speakers in my 70 Dodge Dart. They have excellent bass
and crystal clear highs. I also installed the Kicker KS5250 5 1/4" speakers in
the doors. I would recommend these speakers to anyone. For the price you
can't beat it.



great kickers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I recently purchased two pair of speakers for separate installations. The price seemed to be great but I was hesitant since there were no reviews. I searched the internet and found favorable reviews and decided to take a chance. The first pair went into a 98 Cutlass with a factory stereo. The speakers installed into the rear deck without any problems at all. I was very happy with the amount of bass and overall clarity they provided. I will now have to upgrade the stock speakers in the front doors since the rear speakers are now performing well beyond the stock speakers. When I am done it should sound very good.

The second pair went into an 85 Ford F250. I placed the speakers into .4 cubic feet boxes which I purchased and modified. The speakers are sitting behind the seat facing upwards. I have a Pioneer DEH-P390MP head unit and Pioneer 6.5" TS-A1682S speakers in the front doors. I am very happy with the Kickers and the overall system, but can't wait to install my amp.

I have both listened to and owned several different stereo systems and speakers over the years and I would highly recommend the speakers. I do like a decent amount of bass while listening to music and the Kickers provide plenty, but are not to be compared to a sub-woofer.

Product Research


Curvilinear Injection-Molded Polypropylene Woofer Cones (CIMP): CIMP is a high performance composite, which remains rigid, minimizes cone flex and lowers harmonic distortion. The CIMP consists of a one-piece, injection-molded polypropylene material that moves as a piston, exhibiting power and control.

Enhanced BAM (Basket and Motor) Assembly: The Enhanced BAM (Basket and Motor) Assembly utilizes a high strength steel basket, features a low-profile open design, and provides a solid foundation for the precision aligned motor assembly.

Santoprene Rubber Surrounds: The santoprene rubber surrounds offer unmatched acoustical dampening and UV protection, while allowing extended cone excursion for additional bass output and higher SPL.

Voice Coil Former: Each woofer uses a high-temperature Polyimide film voice coil former for improved sonic and conductive properties, and to prevent thermal-electrical meltdown.

Tinsel Leads: The speaker uses high power tinsel lead wires to prevent broken leads and power loss due to the common use of "insufficient gauge" lead wires.

Dual Titanium Dome Tweeters: Each speaker features a 1" and 3/4" Titanium dome tweeters with neodymium magnets for an extended high frequency response up to 21kHz.

Ferro-Fluid Cooled Tweeter Voice Coils: Each tweeter voice coil is fluid cooled for greater durability.

Grille Mounting: The supplied grille rings mount under the speakers. If you install the speakers with the grilles, the speaker mounting depth is decreased to 3.015" and the speaker mounting height is increased to 2.0265".

Marine Ready: The speakers are equipped with stainless steel mounting hardware (screws and speed clips) which resist corrosion, allowing you to replace most stock boat speakers without worry.
