Product Research

Features

Woofers: The woofer cones are made of injection-molded polypropylene. This process of cone molding assures a uniform cone thickness for superior linearity and clarity. It is also light weight and rigid for decreased distortion and improved bass response.

Woofer Mounting: Without an adapter, the XR-X1700P woofers fit standard 6-3/4" applications. Given their required cutout, they will also fit 6-1/2" applications without an adapter, but new screw holes must be drilled. Using the included adapter brackets they can be mounted in a variety of 6-1/2" and 6-3/4" applications, without any modification. Enter you vehicle information to confirm fit.

Crossover: Each crossover has screw terminal inputs and outputs that will accommodate bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.315" wide. (Speaker wire is not included with the system.) The output level of the tweeters is adjustable; choose 0 dB or -3 dB.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Length: 4.563" (plus wiring)
  • Height: 1.327"
  • Width: 2.6"

Tweeter Mounting Options: The tweeters can be flush mounted using the supplied hardware, or surface mounted using the included housings. Once mounted the tweeters have these dimensions:

  Flush Mount Angled Surface Mount
Mounting Depth 0.738" 0.55" (screw depth)
Mounting Height 0.421" 2.044"
Cutout Diameter 1.768" N/A
Frame Diameter 2.082" N/A
Frame Length N/A 2.094"
Frame Width N/A 2.089"

Warranty Note: Although the information included with these speakers indicates a 1-year warranty, they are actually covered by the Kenwood eXcelon 2-year warranty.
