About the Kicker 43DSC6504

The Kicker fit

Kicker's DS Series 43DSC6504 6-1/2" speakers make a great replacement for the worn-out factory speakers 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 6-1/2" 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 6-1/2" 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)
  • 6-1/2" polypropylene woofer with ribbed polyester foam surround
  • 1/2" PEI domed tweeter
  • power range: handles up to 60 watts RMS (240 watts peak power)
  • frequency range: 40-20,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 90 dB
  • top-mount depth: 1-13/16"
  • impedance: 4 ohms
  • grilles included
  • warranty: 1 year

  • 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

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.

Mounting: The speaker baskets have multiple mounting holes and are designed to fit standard 3-hole 6-1/2" applications and Ford's 4-hole 6-1/2" applications. They will also fit many 6-3/4" applications, but a speaker baffle should be used to seal the inner ring of screw holes.

Q
How much bass do these put out if they are ran off a stock system?
[ Cameron  May 23, 2018 ]

A
I have these in a 4 door ram on the stock head unit and they are a good upgrade over the stock components but your not going to get good bass response out of such a small speaker. Its designed to play more mids and highs. Factory decks are notoriously underpowered for most aftermarket speakers to work to their potential. You may want to consider a new headunit or adding a small multi channel amp to run the factory speakers and a small sub of your looking for more bass.
[ MATTHEW  May 29, 2018 ]

Very good but you will need a amp to get the realy good sound out the speakers

These are a fine budget speaker. I got them cause they fit in my truck doors. Sounds average. I'd rather have Rockford Fosgate.

I bought the same pair of Kickers for my 2013 Dodge Dart. Still have factory radio and they sound and perform way better than I would have thought. Highly recommended these.

Q
Are they 2 ohm ? and I have 2001 Dakota cub cab , it has a infinity stereo what do you recommend for this better truck?
[ Manzo  Jun 14, 2017 ]
2 answers
A
The information Robert provided in the answer above is pretty much spot-on! The Kicker 43DSC6504 are 4-ohm; and while nearly any aftermarket speaker will sound better than the stock speakers in your truck, the "best" one for you can vary depending on your personal tastes/listening preferences. If you would like to discuss further, please feel free to contact an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat--they can help determine if these Kicker's are right for you, and if not, recommend an alternative for you to consider. Thanks!
[ Larry  Jun 18, 2017 ]  Staff
A
No, they are 4 Ohm. I can't say what will sound good for you or in your vehicle, as we all have different sound preferences, but any aftermarket speakers will sound better than factory unless you have a newer vehicle. I chose these because the power handling was lower than others. you don't want super high watts without using an amplifier.

Q
I've been shopping around just trying to replace stock speakers. These appear to be a great option. Any thoughts on performance running completely in a stock system? I don't want to mess around with installing an amp. This is for my wife's SUV
[ Nicholas  Jul 28, 2016 ]

They are relatively low wattage speakers so you will be fine running off a stock head unit.
[ Dan  Aug 02, 2016 ]

That's what did in my wrx, really a big/ good upgrade
[ Jonah  Jul 29, 2016 ]
