About the Kicker 43DSC504

The Kicker fit

Kicker's DS Series 43DSC504 5-1/4" speakers make a great replacement for the worn-out factory spakers in your vehicle. In addition to providing excellent sound, these Kickers incorporate a zero-protrusion tweeter into a low-profile speaker that'll fit in more vehicles than ever.

Reliable, powerful sound

These 5-1/4" speakers will give you the kind of clarity you've never had with your factory speakers. The 2-way design recreates a dynamic sound, dedicating the highs to the PEI domed tweeter while sending the lower frequencies to the 5-1/4" polypropylene woofer. They'll conjure hefty volume even from low-powered factory radios, so you can confidently pump your jams for years to come.

Highlights:

  • 2-way car speakers (pair)
  • 5-1/4" polypropylene woofer with ribbed polyester foam surround
  • 1/2" PEI domed tweeter
  • power range: handles up to 50 watts RMS (200 watts peak power)
  • frequency range: 45-20,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 90 dB
  • top-mount depth: 1-7/8"
  • impedance: 4 ohms
  • grilles included
  • warranty: 1 year

Product Research

Features

Polypropylene Woofer Cones: The Kicker DS-series speakers feature durable polypropylene woofer cones for their rigidity and light weight. Polypropylene is also resistant to moisture and high 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.

Balanced-Dome Tweeters: The 1/2" PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide, polymer film) balanced-dome tweeters provide a smooth high frequency response with quick, detailed and spatially-correct imaging. A semi-dome tweeter has a dome placed inside a cone; balanced dome tweeters are semi-dome tweeters with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the tweeter.

Q
Will these work with my factory amp in a 2012 r56 mini cooper?
[ John  May 27, 2019 ]

A
You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.

Q
What size baffles fit these speakers? The page for these speakers recommend XTC 5-1/4" Baffles, but does not specify the depth. Should 2-1/2" or 3-3/4" be used?
[ Ben M.  Mar 20, 2019 ]

A
I ordered the 2-1/2" size and they fit just right for my back speakers. FYI, I used Fast Rings foam on the front speakers (no baffle) and it made a big difference. Might want to call these guys at Crutchfield though, they're very knowledgeable and welcome the call. Good luck!
