Overview

Our take on the Kicker DS65.2

You love listening to epic, soul-shaking tunes in your ride, but your factory speakers make every song sound like a 60's garage band. Replace those worn-out speakers with some Kicker DS Series models, and get the performance and reliability you deserve.

You love listening to epic, soul-shaking tunes in your ride, but your factory speakers make every song sound like a 60's garage band. Replace those worn-out speakers with some Kicker DS Series models, and get the performance and reliability you deserve.

The DS65.2 component system features heavy-duty 6-3/4" polypropylene woofers, supported by heavy-duty polyester foam surrounds, that'll bring out the power and impact of your tunes.

Titanium 3/4" dome tweeters broadcast bright, sweet vocal and instrumental details, giving your music energy and ambiance. External crossovers send the high frequencies to the tweeters and lower frequencies to the woofers, so your music's in the proper harmonic balance. Hook these components up to an amp, and you'll hear new power and impact from your favorite tunes.

Great speakers. I wired 2 sets of these to a Sound Ordnance M-4050. I was really impressed. Really up'd my sound system. If I didn't have these my subs would be overpowering my highs and ruin the music. These stay loud and clean over two 12inch 900rms Kenwoods. Great buy, good price.

Great speakers. I wired 2 sets of these to a Sound Ordnance M-4050. I was really impressed. Really up'd my sound system. If I didn't have these my subs would be overpowering my highs and ruin the music. These stay loud and clean over two 12inch 900rms Kenwoods. Great buy, good price.

Pros: Quality speakers, nice design, sound great.

Cons: None as of yet. But I WOULD hook up an amp to these to get the most out of these.

1997 Chevrolet Suburban
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A definite improvement over the stock speakers in a '97 Suburban, but won't match the higher end speaker lines. I am hearing differences in the highs that couldn't be discerned with the stock tweeters. The mids brought back the lower-mid frequencies that were lost in the stock speakers after installing a Alpine HU. Be forewarned, the speed clips (which I fortunately didn't have to use) are about the cheapest pieces of garbage I've seen. If you have to use them, get it right the first time, or they will strip the included screws (which are also cheap). If you bend them down to were they should be in the first place, they may break. Had to drill holes for the mid's screws, and do some minor Dremeling to for the tweeters to fit in the stock location, but then they fit perfect. Crutchfield's wire adapters made connecting as simple as it can get. The 4 star rating is based on sound for their price range. It may have earned 5 stars if they didn't skimp on the mounting hardware.

Tweeter Mounting Options: The tweeters come with brackets to allow multiple mounting configurations; flush-mounted, angle-mounted, and surface-mounted (also at an angle):

  Flush Angle Surface

Crossovers: The component system includes passive 2-way crossover networks for a seamless transition between the woofers and tweeters. The slope is 12dB per octave (both high pass and low pass) and the crossover point is 4000 Hz. A switch on the side of each crossover allows you to adjust the tweeter output, 0 dB, +3 dB, or +6 dB.
