Great replacement speakers

Exactly what I needed to replace some older speakers on my boat. Reel nice sound. Installation was relatively easy, required some re-drilling as the original holes did not match to the new ones.

Pros: More wattage. Good sound and bass

Cons: none

Speaker replaced old and beat up existing ones. These went right in with no problems, looks great, nice and white against my white gel coat. Sounds great hooked up to a 400 watt amplifier.

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: None yet.

Great Sound

John from Royal Oak, MI on 8/29/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I replaced my old unworkable speakers with these. The sound is really good. I will buy 2 more for the front of the boat. I really enjoy purchasing from Crutchfield because of the tech support and the customer service. I bought a radio for the boat and needed some tech help. I called and within a few minutes the radio was in. I will continue to shop here for great value and support.

Pros: Price/Tech Support

Cons: None

Nice full sound

Brad from Bejou, MN on 7/23/2018

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

Great speakers for the money, easy install, ZERO cons to these. Full sound, nice clear highs, not tinny or hissy, and decent bass from a 6" speaker. Head unit is a Clarion GR10BT, which pushes these speakers very nicely without an amp.

Pros: Full sound, great highs and nice lows with little distortion.

Cons: Glad to say none!

Kenwood KFC-1653MRW

Crutchfield customer from Valparaiso, FL on 7/11/2018

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

Fine sounding speakers, full range clarity. My setup is on a boat- rear two are on a closed bench seat, front two are beneath the left and right consoles with enough room behind them they are essentially free-air. I have them wired in series, pulling 80 watts RMS total, 40 watts each. Much better sound than the Sony speakers they replaced.

Pros: Integrated grille, separate tweeter. Plenty of mounting screws to get around previous installs.

Cons:

Great Product and Excellent Customer Service

Bryce B. from Scottsdale, AZ on 2/2/2016

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

I decided to upgrade the sound system in my MB Sports Boat So I decided on the 4 Kenwood speakers. They were delivered very quickly and in perfect condition. They sound great for the sound test, but I recommend that if you want Bass, you will need to add a subwoofer, and set up a LPF and HPF to send the appropriate frequencies to the proper speakers. I ended up sending the White speakers back to exchange for black ones in the same model. The customer service set that up for me in about 30 seconds. Very Helpful!

Pros: Sounds great for mid and highs.

Cons: Need to add a subwoofer for the bass, but that is expected.

Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp and subs I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the models and help you make the best choice for your system.
