About the Kicker KM42CW

Small speakers, sweet sound

Kicker's KM42CW 4" marine speakers sound terrific and look great on any boat. Designed for life on the water, these speakers feature sealed motors, rubber cone surrounds, and locking terminal covers to keep spray away from the internal componentry. They'll also stand up to harsh sunlight, thanks to special UV treatments on the cones, surrounds, baskets, and grilles. Whether you're on fresh water or salt, these speakers will give you years of outstanding performance. And their 2-ohm impedance will draw a little extra power out of your marine amplifier.

Q
Would this be good speaker to use on a Harley street glide stero?
[ Jeff  Dec 07, 2018 ]

A
Absolutely. I installed two in a 1979 ski tique. These speakers produce great sound quality. Although I would recommend powering them with a compact amplifier for better and louder sound.

[ giovanni  Jun 28, 2018 ]

Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system.

Q
Will these work with a home theater receiver? I'd like to mount outside of travel trailer under awning.
[ Andy  Jul 10, 2017 ]
2 answers
A
They are a two ohm speaker , your home theater is probally 8 ohm , you could probably use the 4 ohm that they sell it will just pull a little more Power . But they are awesome and stand up to any water and weather conditions. I use a pair on my jet ski , salt water may I add , no problem s been over a year jumping waves. I highly recommend!
[ JEREMY L  Jul 13, 2017 ]
A
These are 4 ohm and most home receivers use 8 ohm speakers. These only work if your receiver will allow 4 ohm speakers
[ William  Jul 11, 2017 ]
