About the Kenwood eXcelon KFC-X168
Kenwood incorporates advanced materials and superior audio engineering into its flagship eXcelon speaker line. Woofer cones are constructed from PBO (a high-performance fiber of superior strength and thermal stability) for low distortion and excellent power handling. Butyl rubber surrounds guide cone movement and contribute to overall durability. High-grade film dome tweeters provide rich, detailed high-frequency response, and gold-plated speaker connectors minimize resistance for smooth signal flow.
The KFC-X168 6-1/2" speakers use PBO cone woofers and 3/4" PPTA film semi-dome tweeters for exceptional accuracy and clarity. The high-grade crossovers improve component performance, while aluminum voice coil formers dissipate heat quickly for higher power handling. These highly-efficient 2-ways offer superb performance, whether they're driven by a low-wattage factory receiver or by a high-powered external amplifier.

Silver PBO Advanced Fiber Cone Woofers: PBO is a high-performance fiber that has superior tensile strength, thermal stability and very low moisture retention. PBO cones are more resistant to flexing and are much more heat-resistant than conventional cones, giving you lower distortion and vastly improved power handling. The low moisture retention allows the speaker to retain its original performance for a longer period of time without being changed by the elements. PBO is also much lighter and more well-damped than carbon fiber, giving it superior dynamic characteristics and reducing resonance that can muddy the sound.
Butyl Rubber Surrounds: For a smoother response and improved durability, the woofers use butyl rubber surrounds.
3/4" PPTA Dome Tweeters: Each speaker features a 3/4" PPTA dome tweeter. PPTA is a high-quality construction material with quick response (rivaling very expensive titanium) and significant internal loss, resulting in accurate transient response and limited tweeter resonance.
Warranty Note: These speakers come with a 1 year warranty card, but the actual warranty is 2 years.
