Slightly disapointed

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I used these to replace the factory Bose drivers (which are absolute junk BTW) in my 2015 Nissan Murano. I was expecting a bit better perfroamnce from these - especially givin the price. Not very linear, tends towards the harsh side of reproduction. Overall disapointed considering these are carbon fiber cones and Kenwood.

Not Impressed

David from CRESTLINE, CA on 9/4/2019

2019 Toyota Tacoma

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

I wanted to upgrade my 2019 Tacoma (non-JBL) sound system. I thought I would start with the speakers. After reading the reviews I decided to go with these Kenwood front dash mount speakers. They are the same paper speakers as the original, only the covers are different. The Kenwoods are paper with the orange circular paper on the inside of the magnet. I only installed one on the driver side. They sound exactly the same. Alot of work and money for getting the same product and sound you started with.

Pros: Fits into same mounting holes.

Cons: The same speaker. No adapter kit. If not wired the same as factory your front door speakers wont work. You need a solder gun to transfer the original wires from the old same speaker. Did I mention it is the same speaker. Not worth the effort.

Fantastic speakers

Crutchfield customer from Bay Saint Louis, MS on 8/11/2019

2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

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

Changed these things out in my 2018 Silverado. Did these first before changing the door speakers, and it was like a night and day difference in sound quality. Never purchased kenwood before, but there are limited options for this speaker size. Very impressed and happy with my purchase. I highly recommend. I just purchased Polk 6x9 for the front doors and 6.5 for the rear doors as well. I've had great experience with Polk in the past.

Pros: Easy to install. Impressive over oem speaker quality.

Cons:

Swansboro

Len from Swansboro, NC on 8/1/2019

2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

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

Bought these for my 2018 Silverado. They sound good at a lower volume but cannot handle any watts thrown at them. I used the included bass blocker but at 40 watts RMS these start to crackle. Gains set correct,Cross over on amp set correct, I was not impressed at all with these. If you are running these off a stock head unit then go for it. They sound great for a stocker. Just couldn't handle a couple of watts thrown at them.

Pros: Awesome for a stock head unit.

Cons: Don't put a amp to them.

Dash Speakers

2017 Nissan 370Z

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

I bought these dash speakers because I needed to replace the factory speakers in my 370Z. I would have liked to find some pioneer or infinity in this same size but none were available. Anyway, these work well, better than the generic paper factory speakers.

Pros: perfect size

Cons: Kenwood

New York City

Mauricio from New York City on 7/4/2019

2010 Toyota Prius

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

Installed these in my 2010 Prius which had JBL factory speakers. I blew out the JBLs listening to things like PJ Harvey, Sigur Ros, etc. In other words, compositions with mid frequencies that push with high amplitude and tone. The Kenwood are far better than the stock but still crackle with the strong mid-tones. This is tough to accept when accustomed to high end audio. I'll try to return these if I can find a better set.

Mike from Clinton Township, MI on 6/28/2019

2016 Chevrolet Colorado

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

Installed in a Colorado that already had the Kicker VSS PowerStage amp and sub installed, so I'm listening to them pushed by a bit more gusto from the Kicker amp. First off: They fit! If you have a GM truck with this speaker size, this is really the first and only drop-in speaker for the application. The provide a nice positive impact to the front sound stage. Being a mid-tweeter, they don't sound like a dome tweeter, but that's not a bad thing. To me, they have a very relaxed and pleasing sound profile that works really well with rock band instruments. All in all, if you have a GM truck fitted with this hard-to-source sized speaker, these Kenwoods are a worthwhile upgrade.

The tweeters have a nice range of highs and lows and can handle the levels in either direction. When I pulled them out of the box I could tell they were made well, and now that I have been using them it is obvious they are made to last.

Pros: In my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee they were easy to install.

Crisp, loud and perfect fitment.

Crutchfield customer from Chicago, IL on 4/15/2019

2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

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

2015 Silverado owners rejoice. These speakers fit perfectly and sound crisp and clear. Even powered by the head unit these speakers are great (done in order to retain chime and Bluetooth). The components, rear door speakers and sub are powered by two amplifiers. Switched out speakers for this location (corner dash) three times and I am finally happy! Buy them!

Pros: Price, Clarity, RMS, fitment

Cons: None

I'm installing these on a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I have an aftermarket stereo with the original Infinity factory speakers. Do I need to splice any wires, or is this plug 'n play?

I just installed these on a 2017 Tacoma and it was plug n play. Not sure on the Jeep. Better hit the forums...
[ Ken  Jul 28, 2019 ]
A
These speakers come with standard speaker wires. You would have to get OEM connectors to plug into your oem if applicable
[ Tommie  Jul 28, 2019 ]
A
They were not plug n play on my 2000. But splicing the wires was a piece of cake. They are nice speakers
[ James  Jul 28, 2019 ]
Q
2019 GMC Canyon W/Bose stereo... Will these speakers work in the dash corners? I've read that Bose sometimes uses speakers with non-standard impedance numbers.
[ Dave  Jul 17, 2019 ]

A
I changed my corner dash Bose speakers on my 2018 Nissan Murano with Bose system for a pair of these Kenwood speakers and they work perfectly. The sound difference is night and day. The only thing you need to consider is if you replace a 2 ohm speaker with a 4 ohm, you will not get the full volume on the 4 ohm because there is more resistance but you will get a fuller range of sound because of the better quality of the Kenwood speakers. I highly recommend them.
[ CARLOS  Jul 18, 2019 ]
A
Yes it will fit .. not only will this Product be the perfect fit but it will give you the best sounds
[ Jose  Jul 17, 2019 ]
Q
I am attaching these to the factory head unit. DO I leave the crossover attached or cut it off?
[ bryan  Apr 17, 2019 ]

A
I left the crossover on with the OEM head unit but I also have an aftermarket amp attached. They work great
[ Donald  Apr 24, 2019 ]
A
I just installed these on my Camry where the dash speakers are hooked up to the front door speakers from the factory. In that situation you leave the crossover on. If the dash speakers are independent then you can cut it off.
[ Shawn  Apr 18, 2019 ]
A
You would leave them attached for a factory head unit install. You only cut them off if you're hooking them up to an (aftermarket) amplifier that had crossover controls built into it.
[ Dan  Apr 17, 2019 ]
A
I left it all together I have a Bose system in an 06 Pathfinder I left everything all I did was hook the wires up and went with it
[ Nicholas  Apr 17, 2019 ]
