High quality, low cost

Warren from Charleston, WV on 8/6/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

My pontoon came equipped with a Jensen MSR3007 4x40w stereo. I purchased four of the Kenwood KFC-1653MRB speakers as a direct replacement for two stock Jensen MS6007S 30w RMS 4 ohm speakers with remarkable results. First, the high gloss black of the Kenwoods looks much classier than the silver paint finish of the original speakers. Second, four speakers naturally deliver more sound than just two, but the quality of the sound is greatly improved as well. To be fair, the speakers being replaced are seven years old, but their single cone design was never on par with the two-way Kenwoods. If you are looking to update your boat's worn out speakers with economical speakers that deliver quality sound, it's hard to beat the Kenwood brand.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Bought these speakers for my SxS. Paired with a Kenwood head unit and they sound excellent. Installed 4 of these speakers when 2 would have been sufficient.. We'll see if they hold up. My Crutchfield advisor was very knowledgeable and helpful. This was my first time purchasing from them and very satisfied.

Pros: Well built. Sound great

Cons: None yet

For our toy hauler outside speakers [ Lou Ann  Jun 11, 2016 ]
A
Chose these Kenwood speakers for the outside of our travel trailer. I wanted to stay within a $100 budget, but wanted speakers with a grille that would protect the speaker cones from any stray branches in campgrounds. These speakers sound great - amazingly clear and clean, even at low volumes. Decent bass and presence. [ Jack  Apr 09, 2016 ]
