About the Kenwood Excelon KFC-X173

Speaker excellence

Kenwood Excelon speakers incorporate technical know-how and advanced materials to give your music the full, rich sound it deserves. These full-range speakers sport a diamond-array pattern etched into their woofers that increases the strength of the carbon-polypropylene cone for improved dynamic response and lower distortion. The butyl rubber surround resists weathering, providing reliable support that keeps your music playing, no matter what.

The KFC-X173 6-3/4" full-range speakers feature 3/4" silk dome tweeters that deliver all the high-frequency details without sounding harsh. Because of their specially designed magnetic circuitry and neodymium magnets, these compact tweeters use less steel in their construction than most tweeters, so you'll hear more accurate response.

Product Research

Features

Woofers: The woofer cones are constructed of Carbon-PP (polypropylene) with a diamond array pattern.  The woofers feature butyl rubber surrounds for a smoother response and improved durability.

Tweeters: Each speaker uses a 3/4" Silk soft dome tweeter for smooth, accurate highs.

Adapter Ring: The included adapter ring expands the speaker's compatibility to include the 3-hole 6-3/4" patterns used by GM and Chrysler, the standard 3-hole 6-1/2" pattern, and Ford's 4-hole 6-1/2" pattern. Using the adapter ring adds 0.274" to the mounting height and subtracts 0.274" from the depth. Given the 4.916" cutout required, the speakers will also fit in standard 6-1/2" openings without the adapter ring, but new screw holes must be drilled.

Warranty Note: Although these speakers come with a 1-year warranty card, they are covered by the Kenwood Excelon 2-year warranty.
