About the Kicker 46CSS654

The streamlined speaker system

Kicker consistently prioritizes vehicle fit along with quality in their CS Series car speakers, making them among the most popular we sell. And better fit doesn't come at the cost of better sound — you'll find several cool innovations at work here. Kicker's separate titanium tweeter, driven by a neodymium magnet, delivers your music's highs with control and clarity. The woofer's phase plug helps eliminate distortion, and its UV-treated poly-foam surround equips this Kicker speaker for enduring performance no matter what extremes life in your car door brings.

Consistently solid sound

Kicker's 46CSS654 6-1/2" component speaker system serves up stellar sound using a polypropylene woofer for the lower frequencies and a titanium dome tweeter for the highs. Kicker includes a pair of external crossovers with three-level tweeter attenuation for fine-tuning your overall sound. Use an aftermarket car stereo or an outboard amp to enjoy classic Kicker quality with more detail and punch.

Product Research

Features

Polypropylene Woofer Cones: The Kicker CSS-series speakers feature durable polypropylene woofer cones, resistant to the moisture and temperature extremes found in automotive applications.

Ribbed Polyester Foam Surrounds: The ribbed polyester foam surrounds allow extended cone excursion for additional bass output and higher SPL.

Woofer Mounting Applications: Kicker describes these speakers as 6½. With the extended mounting "ears" around the perimeter of the frame, they also fit many 6¾ locations. Because Kicker also makes a dedicated 6¾ in this series (item number 20646CS674) that is typically a better fit, we don't recommend the CSS65 for those applications.

Tweeter Mounting Options: The tweeters come with brackets to allow multiple mounting configurations: flush-mounted, angled flush-mounted (approximately 10°), and angled surface-mounted (approximately 45°).

Tweeter Dimensions:

  Flush Mount Angled Flush Mount Angled Surface Mount
Mounting Height 0.275" 0.662" 1.928"
Depth 0.548" 0.705" 0.491" (screw depth)
Frame Diameter 1.968" 1.968" N/A
Cutout Diameter 1.570" 1.685" N/A
Frame Width N/A N/A 1.887"
Frame Length N/A N/A 2.110"

Crossovers: The component system includes passive 2-way crossover networks for a seamless transition between the woofers and tweeters. The slope is 12dB per octave (both high pass and low pass) and the crossover point is 4000 Hz. A switch on each crossover allows you to set the tweeter output; 0 dB, +3 dB, or +6 dB. Each crossover's input and output wires are attached; the 35" woofer output has quick slide terminals that connect directly to the woofer and the 35" tweeter output has bullet terminals that mate to the terminals on the tweeter wires.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Length: 4.02" (4.67" including mounting flange)
  • Width: 2.29" (4.47" including tweeter output level switch)
  • Height: 1.01"

Q
How's the bass? Compared to factory speakers
[ Josue  Jan 15, 2020 ]
2 answers
A
They are much better. The factory speakers were 15 years old and had visibly deteriorated. We also installed an amplifier to run these speakers, so the difference is pretty dramatic.
[ M  Jan 15, 2020 ]
A
I changed everything in my son's acura rsx and what a difference. Bass is great. Crisp high and mid.

Q
How's the bass?
[ Josue  Jan 15, 2020 ]

A
Surprisingly good enough that I'm debating the addition of a sub. My next step is the addition of a Kicker Key and based on the reviews I've read and the type of music I enjoy I think a sub won't be called for in this build.
[ Robert  Jan 15, 2020 ]
Q
do all of the components mount inside the door in stock location?
[ Matt  Jan 03, 2020 ]
3 answers
A
If the door has both a woofer and tweeter in it, then all of this Kicker component speaker can be installed in the doors. If the tweeter is not in the doors, then that may change the location that the crossover gets installed but the only way to truly know is to look at the specific vehicle for the driver locations and if needed, the layout of the wiring. Feel free to contact an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 to get more information about your specific vehicle
[ Paul  Jan 15, 2020 ]  Staff
A
I had to custom mount the tweeter. Th woofer fit in the door with the install kit. The crossover, I was able to mount on the door under the panel. It took a little work, but the end result was worth it. sounds great.
[ kevin  Jan 14, 2020 ]
A
Yeah, it was a pretty straight forward install. I ended up using a combination between the new hardware that came with the speakers and the OEM speakers but they worked great.
[ Miguel Galicia  Jan 14, 2020 ]
