About the Kenwood Excelon KFC-X183C

Upgrade to excellence

The Kenwood Excelon KFC-X183 7" speakers feature a 28% larger cone, packed into a frame that will still fit into the factory openings of many Dodge, GM, and Toyota vehicles (with some modifications). A bigger cone moves more air, so your music can have the fullness and punch you miss with most factory speakers. A diamond-array pattern etched into the cones increases their strength for improved dynamic response and lower distortion. The rubber surround resists weathering, providing reliable support that keeps your music playing, no matter what.

The 1" silk dome tweeters deliver all the high-frequency details smoothly, and special-design magnetic circuitry and powerful, lightweight magnets make these tweeters extremely accurate without sounding harsh. Kenwood includes multi-purpose and 6"x9" brackets that help these big bruisers to fit in some Dodge, GM, or Toyota vehicles.

Grilles are not included; the factory grilles should be suitable for most applications.

Nice little speakers!

Amazing upgrade from factory speakers. I got these based on other reviews to replace the door speakers in my 17 Chevy Cruze. The other reviews were tno wrong! Plenty of base, highs are not shrill.Impressed with the amount of oomph they gave for the price. Getting a second set to replace the rear door speakers!

Great speakers for the price and there also a little larger than speakers in this general product lineup giving them good midbass response as well as general performance along with these tweeters

crystal clear and loud

I have two sets of these in my 2013 Ram 1500 Crew Cab on a Kenwood 8405 60x4 amp. I have Polk dxi350s in the dash. This setup sounds amazing. I am running the factory deck and do not plan to switch. It is noted these will not fit the rear doors in the truck. Out of the box they won't. The tweeters hit the door panel. You can flip and grind down the plates provided by Kenwood and it drops the speaker back about another 1/4" and clears everything. You can hear every detail out of these silk tweeter including the tad bit brighter sounding Polks in the dash but they blend very well together. Also under the rear seat is a Kenwood 9105 monoblock 900wx1rms. But am having trouble deciding on sub's. Have box built but haven't cut holes yet as I'm not sure if I'm going with two 10s or two 8s. Kenwood doesn't have anything I can run which is a bummer as I'm so happy with everything thus far I'm sure I'd be happy with a set of excellon sub's but can't get ohms and power right with what they have and what I have.

Pros: Everyrhing

Cons: Kenwood could have just put more thought into the mounting plates for more installation options.

Thoroughly Impressed!

Jeremy from Palestine, TX on 8/18/2011

I bought these for the rear doors of my 2000 Jetta. I didn't want to spend another $300 for a second set of Morel Tempo 6.75" speakers (used in my front doors), so these looked like a good compromise. These speakers are much larger than 6.75" speakers. My plan was to use the included adapters pieced together with the VW adapters. Plans quickly changed when I test fitted. I decided to undergo fiberglassing speaker pods in the factory location, and inside the door panel. The fiberglass was messy, but turned out well. I am powering them only with a Sony head unit. A JL Audio HD900/5 amp is on the way. I'm blown away by how well these sound. Don't be fooled by the listed frequency response. I can assure you that these respond well below 63 Hz. The response of this system rivals that of my 09 Cobalt with a factory 7 speaker Pioneer system (w/10 inch subwoofer). It's certainly no replacement for a good aftermarket sub, but a lesser solution when a large sub is not possible. The tweeters are loud and clear without being tinny or harsh at all. I can say without a doubt that these sound better to me than any of the full range speakers I've owned, except for Morels. I've had Kickers, Infinitys, several different models of JL Audio, Pioneers, Alpines and probably others I can't think of. Can't wait to see how these sound with my amp and Dynamat! I'll be giving Kenwood a closer look in the future, and won't hesitate to buy these speakers again. For the price, they're a steal!

Product Research

Features

Custom Brackets: The KFC-X183C is designed as a factory replacement speaker and includes adapters compatible with many GM, Toyota, and Dodge vehicles (one bracket adapts to a 6x9 opening, the other is a multi-purpose bracket and is scored for trimming to fit several applications). Please refer to the Crutchfield Car Selector to confirm fit for your vehicle.

Woofers: The woofer cones are Carbon/Polypropylene. They are oversized for a fuller sound quality than typical factory speakers. The Carbon/Polypropylene cones and rubber surrounds are durable, designed to withstand the harsh automotive environment.

Tweeters: Each speaker has a 1" soft dome tweeter for smooth, accurate highs. The tweeters use a neodymium magnet for higher efficiency.
