Pro versatility

Kicker also gives you the option of screwing the component tweeters on in place of the woofer's removable phase plug, giving you a coaxial speaker that benefits from the superior performance of an external crossover. Installed as 2-way speakers, you can aim the tweeters to direct high-frequency response in your vehicle.

Great with all kinds of power

While we'd recommend using an aftermarket amp to power this system, Kicker gave the KS Series a highly sensitive design that conjures hefty volume even from low-powered factory radios.

Fit matters

These low-profile speakers feature a reduced mounting depth, making them a match for almost any car. And the refined, black grilles included with the package allow you to do a custom installation that'll add nice flair to your factory interior.

Product Research

Features

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

Woofer Mounting Applications: While Kicker describes the KSS680 woofers as 6x8, they also fit many 5x7 applications. Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.

Tweeter Mounting Options: The tweeters come with brackets to allow multiple mounting configurations; flush-mount, angle-mount, and surface-mount. The surface mount pods are mounted to a threaded, hollow shaft and have a ball-and-socket joint, so they can be turned in any direction, and angled up to approximately 30°.

  Flush Angle Surface
Mounting Height 0.30" 0.60" 2.125"
Mounting Depth 0.62" 0.60" 0.8"
Frame Diameter 2.05" 2.1" 2.3" x 1.9"
Cutout Diameter 1.67" 1.67" 0.47" (post)

Coaxial Tweeter Mount: In addition to standard tweeter mounting options, the included tweeter mounting posts let you mount the tweeters directly to the center of the woofers, giving you a standard coaxial speaker. The tweeter can be angled up to 12° when coaxially mounted. When the tweeter is attached to the woofer the mounting height (top mount) and tweeter protrusion (bottom mount) increase to 0.7".

Crossovers: The component system includes 12 dB/octave passive crossovers for the tweeters. (Both the woofers and tweeters are wired through the crossovers, but only the tweeters are filtered.) The crossover point is 4,000 Hz. A switch on each crossover allows you to adjust the tweeter output; 0 dB, +4.5 dB, or +9 dB. Each crossover has input and output wires are attached; the 34" woofer output has quick slides that connect directly to the woofer terminals and the 32" tweeter output has quick slides that mate to the terminals on the wire attached to the tweeter. The crossovers' dimensions are:

  • Length: 4"
  • Width: 2⅞"
  • Height: 1⅛"

Customer Q&A

4 questions already asked

Q
These KS Component speakers are rated 100 RMS and I'm going to pair them with their sister KS 2-way speakers 75 RMS, will a 60w RMS 4-Chann amp be sufficient for these speakers?
[ Franko  Aug 25, 2021 ]
1 answer
A
In short yes the amp will be enough. One thing to look out for is a speakers sensitivity, measured in Db, when making speaker purchases. These KS are over 90db which means it is highly efficient at translating the power into music. So, despite underpowering your speakers in your situation they will still play loud and sound great because of its high sensitivity. If you want the most out of them I would find an amp rated for its power or an amp that puts out 75w per channel

Q
I have a 2013 F150 with factory tweeters in the a-pillars. Will I need to use the crossover and run new wires to the tweeters?
[ Will  May 23, 2021 ]
2 answers
A
I would say it would be best to run new wire from the cross over. The crossovers are made for those tweeters. The OEM tweeters run a different frequency im sure. I mounted mine tweets for my kickers in front of the pull handle for the door.
[ william  May 23, 2021 ]
A
My guess is if you have tweeters in the a pillars there is some type of factory crossover unit usually mounted somewhere on the door. You can access the wires there. or you can run new wires cause you will have to remove the pillar cover to mount the new tweeter. you could use the factory crossover but the kicker one is better.

Q
Will the tweeters work in a 2009 Ford Expedition?
[ Isaiah  Oct 24, 2020 ]

Had to modify my 2012 f150.
[ william  Oct 26, 2020 ]
A
Yes they will work for your front and rear doors. The fronts you will install as component separates by removing the stock tweeter and install the kicker in its place, the woofer will get install in the door in the factory location. The rear speakers you will install them as a 2 way design not component, the speakers come with all the hardware to make that work.
