If you're into car audio, you've heard how a good set of speakers can transform your system's sound. Kicker KS Series speakers use superior materials and construction to deliver crystal-clear music in your ride.

The KS460 4"x6" speakers use a durable Santoprene™ rubber surround to suspend the strong polypropylene woofer cone in a rigid basket. You'll hear strong low-frequency performance, so your tunes sound full at any volume.

The polymer 1/2" dome tweeter delivers all the sonic details and dynamics that make music exciting. Replace your worn-out speakers with some KS Series coaxials, and bring the "live music" experience to your car's interior.

Features

Polypropylene Woofer: The curvilinear, gray, 4x6-inch Polypropylene woofer cones, Santoprene surround, and newly designed basket gives this KS Coaxial speaker the extra brawn to deliver a smooth, rich sound at any volume.

Kaladex Tweeter: Each speaker features a single, 0.5-inch, Kaladex-domed tweeter that contain a stout neodymium magnet dipped in ferrofluid for maximum coolness, recreating highs that rival live performance.

Mounting: The speakers can be top-mounted in a metric 4"x6" opening, or, using the supplied adapter rings, the speakers can be top or bottomed-mounted in a U.S. standard 4"x6" opening.

Kicker KS460

Written By hdrocker, Middletown, RI on Monday, February 07, 2011

Great deal. Excellent sounding speakers, definitely worth every penny.

Great sound from a 4x6

Written By Ray, New England on Monday, January 03, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was surprised at how great these speakers sound in my 94 Chevy 3500. 4x6 speakers are hard to find that don't over emphasize the high range, or have very harsh midrange, not to mention very poor midbass. These 4x6 speakers from Kicker are pretty much flat across their frequency range. The highs are mellow, and the bass response is very good. These 4x6's actually go all the way down to 100hz and sound good doing it. My truck isn't exactly the best for sound reproduction from the factory locations, but these speakers help!

Good Bang for the $$

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Replaced stock front and pillar speakers in a 2500 Sierra Pickup. Used these in the rear pillar; easy install, good sound for the size (they are tiny). Sound stays crisp even at high volumes.

You can't beat this little speaker for the money. Great sound quality.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I do not know anything about speakers except the sound they produce. For as small as these speakers are, I am very impressed with the sound that comes from the back of my truck. No crackling or humming. These are great speakers.

Great Audio

Written By Jason, Elgin, IL on Wednesday, September 24, 2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I think these kicker speakers have a great audio sound to them. I thought they didn't really have as much bass tone as the factory speakers did but thats probably because the factory speakers didn't have that much audio quality. I like them a lot I have the kicker door speakers, 6X9's, and Kicker 12's with a kicker amp. This makes a nice sound system!

Get everything you’ll need to enjoy your new Kicker KS460

Reduce ambient road noise and your vehicle's "rattles," for better sound inside your car.
You'll need speaker wire to connect your speakers to your amp.
Keep your speakers clean and dry. They compress to fit behind your speakers.
The right tools will help keep your installation simple and clean.
If your stereo doesn't cut the deep bass from your full-range speakers, a set of bass blockers can help prevent distortion and give you cleaner bass too.
