Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Marine-Ready: The Kicker KM6LW Marine Coaxial Speakers are
engineered to meet or exceed industry standards for environmental humidity and
corrosion, and for material degradation due to UV exposure. The speakers feature
sealed motors, cones, and locking wire terminal covers. UV treatments on the
cones, surrounds, baskets, and grilles help them last in freshwater or saltwater
LEDs: Six blue LEDs on the back of the grille give the illusion
of a glowing speaker cone. Switched 12 volt and ground wires (in addition to the
speaker wire) are necessary to turn the LEDs on.
MAXBasket Geometry: The speakers are engineered using Kicker's
MAXBasket Geometry, meaning an oversized, louder 6.5" cone performs in a
speaker basket designed for a smaller 5" cutout.
Woofer Cone: The injection-molded polypropylene cones have UV,
pollution, and moisture resistance. For increased durability, they use Santoprene
Integrated Grilles: The KM6LWs come with a water-resistant,
bolt-through, high-impact plastic grille with the 1/2" PEI (Polyetherimide)
dome tweeter permanently mounted in the center of the grille.
Note: The grilles are not designed to be removed.
Magnetic Shielding: The motor structures are magnetically
shielded, minimizing compass and gauge deviation in your dash.
Terminal Cover: The speakers feature splash and spray resistant,
locking terminal covers. These covers have water-resistant gaskets to prevent terminal
corrosion and electrical shorting.
Stainless Steel Hardware: The provided hardware is forged from
corrosion-proof 316L stainless steel.
