Overview

Our take on the Kenwood KFC-P510PS

After years of patchy factory sound, I remember installing aftermarket speakers and simply being grateful for audio that was consistent and solid. Kenwood's Performance Series delivers all of that and goes a step beyond, providing articulate lows, clean vocals, and startling highs. With their latest technology incorporated into these speakers, you'll get the biggest sonic bang for your buck.

Quality Kenwood sound

Kenwood's KFC-P510PS 5-1/4" component system provides a rich, dynamic sound reinforced by a solid low end. This polypropylene woofer cone sports a Diamond Array pattern that increases surface strength for reduced distortion and improved bass response. A rubber surround provides reliable playback in spite of the prolonged exposure to the elements that life in your car doors brings.

A 1" soft dome tweeter rounds out this strong system, providing high-frequency details with accuracy. And Kenwood makes things a little easier by incorporating an in-line crossover network into each tweeter — no need to find a spot for a bulky crossover module.

Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The speakers themselves sound very clear. The highs and lows are both very nice. The installation was harder than expected because several of the parts did not fit my car and the mounts Crutchfield sent did not mach the instructions. Also some of the bolts that were sent had a flat head on them so we could not screw them in.

Reasonable Entry Level Option

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased Kenwood KFC-P510PS component speakers to replace stock rear speakers of a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The installation utilizes a class D amp with 70 watts RMS in high pass mode set at 110htz. The vehicle's configuration required fabrication but that is no fault of the speakers. Given the low cost, I consider these to be entry level component speakers and judge them as such. Build quality is reasonable for the price point. Basic flush and surface mount options are provided for the tweeters and inline capacitors limit their input signals. That configuration would leave the woofer operating full range if the amp was not in high pass mode in this installation. Common and something to understand as you read my evaluation. Left to operate at full range, sound quality would likely suffer. In this installation, the speakers produce a nice warm tone overall. Highs are clean and clear without much brassy/tinny flavors. The woofers are not capable of deep bass notes but that's to be expected. What was a nice surprise, is the overall clarity of the midrange tones. The speakers exceeded my expectations to some degree in that area. I have doubts they would sound as good without an amp. Overall, I consider the Kenwood KFC-P510PS speakers to be good for those simply needing to replace stock units with hopes of improving overall sound quality in the process. They are not going to provide huge improvements, but by virtue of being component speakers they will be a step

Pros: Low cost, reasonable options, nicer than expected warm sound.

Cons: Typical limitations for price point, not likely to sound as god without amplification.

Soft Dome Tweeters: The 1" soft dome tweeters offer smooth highs and low distortion.

Once installed the tweeters can pivot in the housing, so their angles can be adjusted to obtain a better soundstage. The tweeters can also be top or bottom mounted in a factory tweeter location using the included brackets. The tweeters cannot pivot when installed in the OEM brackets. Once mounted in the appropriate housing, the tweeters have these dimensions:

2 questions already asked

Thanks for your question. This would work in two doors. There are two woofers and two tweeters so everything is a pair. Hope that helps. [ Kenny  Jun 02, 2017 ]  Staff
Did you mean the DNX573S navigation receiver? If so, very well. The stereo provides up to 22 watts RMS x 4 which is enough to get great volume and clarity from the KFC-P510PS speakers. I hope that helps. My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=5 [ Ryan  May 24, 2017 ]  Staff
