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 balanced dome 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 balanced dome 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: 1-13/16"
  • impedance: 4 ohms
  • grilles included
  • warranty: 2 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee
  • MFR # 43DSC504

What's in the box:

  • Two 2-way speakers
  • 2 Grilles
  • Two 11" lengths of speaker wire (tinned wire on one end and female quick slides on the other)
  • 4 Red plastic butt connectors
  • Eight 1-1/8" Self-tapping screws
  • 8 Speed clips
  • Owner's manual (English/ Spanish/ German/ French)

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 a 100 watt amp ?
[ KEVIN E  May 27, 2021 ]
1 answer
A
If that is the RMS watts that the amp outputs at 4 ohms, then these speakers will not work with your amp. They should be used with amps that output up to 50 watts RMS at 4 ohms. We have advisors that can be reached by calling 1-800-324-9695 who will be happy to discuss your goals and give you a personal recommendation on a matched system
[ JASON  Jun 12, 2021 ]  Staff

Q
Can these be used as outdoor speakers on my RV?
[ ERIC  Nov 26, 2020 ]
2 answers
A
Oh yeah they work great I have them in my Jeep in the Soundbar which is exposed to the elements
[ guy  Nov 26, 2020 ]
A
I have them on a speaker box that sits in the back of my truck year round. They can withstand the weather but I still put a tarp over the speaker box so snow and water doesn't get in them. I believe they would work on your outdoor speakers as long as water doesn't get inside them Hopefully this helps you out ??

Q
I ride an 08 harley ultraclassic in Florida's down pours of rain and mean rain are these speaker water proof ?
[ Dennis  Oct 13, 2020 ]

These speakers are not marine grade. We have some that are and can fit your Harley. I recommend contacting an advisor by calling 1-800-324-9695 to get a personal recommendation on those speakers
[ JASON  Nov 08, 2020 ]  Staff
A
I purchased my speakers for a Ford Ranger, they were installed inside the truck, so I really can't help you with the question. The specs on the website don't mention waterproof. Did you try marine speakers?

Q
does this item only come with enough speakers for one door? or does it replace both driver side and passenger side doors? it says it is a pair, just curious if i need to buy 2 sets for driver and passenger or just one set for both
[ DALTON  Jan 20, 2020 ]

This was sold as a pair.
[ Matt  Jan 20, 2020 ]
A
Hello, this set came with 2 speakers. One for the driver side and one for the passenger side. Not exactly sure of your model and make. Most cars and trucks or SUV's usually only have 1 speaker per door. Hope this helps.

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?
[ Benjamin  Mar 20, 2019 ]
1 answer
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!
