About the Kicker 43DSC6804

Alexander H.

The Kicker fit

Kicker's DS Series 43DSC6804 6"x8" 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"x8" 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 polypropylene woofer. They'll conjure hefty volume even from low-powered factory radios, so you can confidently pump your jams for years to come.

Grilles are not included; the factory grilles should be suitable for most applications.

Product Research


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 Applications: Kicker describes the DSC680 as a 6x8, but it also fits many 5x7 applications. Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.

Customer Q&A

5 questions already asked

do these speakers just pluge into the stock plugs or is their some type of special wireing that has to be done?

Do I need an amp to run these?
[ JOSHUA  Sep 01, 2017 ]
6 answers
I don't have an amp on them and they sound good. I have the bass to them turned down a bit and the rest of my bass comes from a 12 in the trunk but they do pack a pretty good punch when the bass is dialed in correctly.
[ JASON  Sep 06, 2017 ]
No You don't. I have these installed in my 2017 Ram and they sound good with the stock head unit. An amp, however, is always a good idea.
[ MAX  Sep 03, 2017 ]
No...I put them in my ford Pickup...much better than factory speakers
[ THOMAS  Sep 03, 2017 ]
Not necessary. I'm powering mine on the factory stereo and using a separate powered sub. The whole package sounds great in my F-150 super crew. The factory stereo is plenty for these Kicker speakers.
[ Kevin  Sep 02, 2017 ]
No you do not. Your factor head you will drive them just fine.
[ Lester  Sep 02, 2017 ]
No, I am running them off a pioneer received and they sound great.
[ ROBERT  Sep 02, 2017 ]
Will a head unit 35x4 run these speakers?
[ Matt  Mar 05, 2017 ]
2 answers
Yes it will, I have a 35x4 and they sound GREAT!!
[ Mitchell  Mar 11, 2017 ]

Why can't fit in rear speaker location in Toyota Camry ?
[ Bk wiser  Mar 06, 2016 ]
1 answer
There can be a lot of reasons that speakers won't fit in a given location - depth, mounting height, magnet diameter, etc. For specific details on an installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on fit and discuss options with you for installing this or another speaker.
