About the Kenwood Excelon XR-1800P

Big, big woofers

Kenwood's Excelon XR-1800P component speaker system features a huge 7" woofer, packed into a frame that will still fit into the factory openings of many Dodge, GM, and Toyota vehicles (some cars may require slight modifications). A bigger cone moves more air, so your music can have the fullness and punch you don't hear with most factory speakers. The woofer's advanced hybrid pulp cone stays rigid through heavy workouts to cut down on distortion and keep your bass sounding tight. The rubber surround resists weathering, providing reliable support that keeps your music playing, no matter what.

Huge tweeters

Separate 1-3/16" soft dome tweeters deliver all the high-frequency details smoothly, while external crossovers and powerful, lightweight magnets make these tweeters extremely accurate without sounding harsh. The bruisers handle up to 110 watts RMS, so you'll be impressed when you fire them up with a nice amp. Kenwood includes multi-purpose adapter brackets that help the woofers fit in select vehicles.  Grilles are included.

Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

Product Research

Features

Woofers: The woofers are oversized for a fuller sound quality than typical factory speakers. The hybrid pulp/polypropylene cones and rubber surrounds are durable and designed to withstand the harsh automotive environment.

Custom Brackets: The XR1800P woofers are designed as factory replacement speakers and include 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.

Crossover: Each crossover has screw terminal inputs and outputs that will accommodate bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.315" wide. The output level of the tweeters is adjustable; choose 0 dB, -2 dB, or -4 dB.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Length: 4.567" (plus wiring)
  • Height: 1.325"
  • 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 0.71" 0.4" (screw depth)
Mounting Height 0.426" 2.058"
Cutout Diameter 1.767" N/A
Frame Diameter 2.081" N/A
Frame Length N/A 2.125"
Frame Width N/A 2.081"

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.

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
Should be an awesome upgrade over the stock Bose speakers in my 2017 GMC Sierra. The stock Bose speakers are disappointing. [ David  Oct 06, 2018 ]
A
I went to a local shop and compared speakers...the next best sounding speakers were $600. These were highly recommended for bass and clarity at high volumes. [ Richard  Sep 19, 2018 ]

Q
Has anyone installed these in the rear door of a 2017 Toyota Tacoma double cab? If so, did you have to modify anything?
[ Luke  Mar 05, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
The 7" woofers are not a recommended fit in the rear doors of the 2017 Tacoma doublecab. The available cutout diameter is not large enough for the 7" component. You can view all of the models we recommend to fit each location by using the "Find What Fits" application on the main Crutchfield website https://www.crutchfield.com/car/carselector.aspx?lp=%2fCar%2foutfitmycar%2fmycar.aspx

Q
Can these be crossed over with a hpf @ 63 Hz since lowest their response is 53hz or is it best to stick to a higher 80hz crossover? Running off a Rockford 600a4 (75RMS) tuned with a Dd-1, crossover set on a Pioneer 4200nex

The high-pass filter setting for the Kenwood XR-1800P speakers can vary on the other components in your system, as well as your own personal listening preferences--for a more personalized recommendation to suit your system & preferences, I would suggest contacting an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. They can help determine the best HPF setting for you in more detail there. Thanks! :)

Q
Do I need an amp to power these speakers? I am looking to put these in the front doors in a 2010 Tundra with a Kenwood DNX571HD.
[ JEREMIAH S  Apr 06, 2017 ]

The Kenwood Excelon XR-1800P component speakers would perform best with an external amplifier driving them. For help selecting an appropriate amplifier, feel free to reach out to an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat.

Q
I have a 2001 MR2 Spyder with a stock sound system. I was hoping to replace the stock door speakers with these but got a "Does not fit" warning. Can you tell me which part of this speaker system does not fit? If it's the tweeters, I can cut a larger hole for them. If it's the drivers then I'll have to look for something else. Thanks.

How are these for a midrange speaker I have the Bose factory system in my truck
[ chris  Aug 18, 2014 ]

For details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle.
