About the Kicker DS525

If you're on a budget, but still want speakers with an attitude, go with Kicker's DS Series coaxials. The CIMP (Curvilinear Injection-Molded Polypropylene) woofers of the 2-way DS525 5-1/4" speakers combine power and control as they piston out the bass. The woofers are mounted in Enhanced BAM (Basket and Motor) assemblies — the low-profile high-strength steel baskets provide a firm foundation for the speaker motor.

Accurate imaging and smooth high-frequency response are a given, thanks to Kicker's PEN semi-dome tweeters. What's PEN? Try "biaxially-oriented polypropylene naphthalate film." Don't worry about explaining it — just turn up the music and let your friends admire how good your system sounds!

Product Research

Features

Curvilinear Injection-Molded Polypropylene Woofer Cones (CIMP): CIMP is a high performance composite, which remains rigid, minimizes cone flex and lowers harmonic distortion. The CIMP consists of a one-piece, injection-molded polypropylene material that moves as a piston, exhibiting power and control.

Polyfoam Ribbed Surrounds: The polyfoam ribbed surrounds allow extended cone excursion for additional bass output and higher SPL.

1/2" PEN Balanced-dome Tweeters: The 1/2" PEN balanced-dome tweeters provide a smooth high frequency response with quick, detailed and spatially-correct imaging. PEN is an acronym for the space age material "biaxially oriented polypropylene naphthalate film."

Ferro-Fluid Cooled Tweeter Voice Coils: Each tweeter voice coil is fluid cooled for greater durability.

Enhanced BAM (Basket and Motor) Assembly: The Enhanced BAM (Basket and Motor) Assembly utilizes a high strength steel basket, features a low-profile open design, and provides a solid foundation for the precision aligned motor assembly.
