About the Kicker 43DSC6804

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 domed 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.

Highlights:

  • 2-way car speakers (pair)
  • 6"x8" polypropylene woofer with ribbed polyester foam surround
  • 1/2" PEI domed tweeter
  • handles up to 50 watts RMS (200 watts peak power)
  • frequency range: 45-20,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 90 dB
  • top-mount depth: 2-3/8"
  • impedance: 4 ohms
  • grilles not included
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee
  • MFR # 43DSC6804

What's in the box:

  • Two 2-way speakers
  • 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)

Upgraded the old Expeditions stock audio system due to speakers being worn out.Installed theses Kicker drop in speakers and added some roadkill and fast rings along with a Kicker key smart amp I got for Father's Day and the sound is incredible now.O h yes I did use my factory head unit because I still listen to cd's.Crutchfield is a great store to shop from the recommendations for speakers and extra hardware were helpful.Delivery was super fast.

Pros: Super easy install for upgrade to factory audio system

Cons: None

More Than a Bargain!

Crutchfield customer from Dublin, CA on 7/2/2019

1998 Ford Escort ZX2

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installation of these speakers into the rear deck of my 1998 Ford Escort ZX2 was a breeze. Simple swap installation. The Speaker Harnesses from Crutchfield made the installation as simple as it can be, by literally just plugging connectors into each other. Sound quality of these speakers was breathtaking. In my car, the bass potential is so great such that, it sounds like there's a subwoofer installed but there isn't. They can't produce the extreme lows that subwoofers can though, but in a car setting with lots of road noise, the spectrum of frequencies you can hear are amazing with these speakers. Treble response is on-point, but can be a little harsh on the ears at higher volumes. Not a con for the product however, the tweeter construction of the speakers is known for a more crisp sound signature. Paired with a Kenwood Excelon KMM-X503, no external amplifier is needed. Any louder, and my hearing would be shot!

Great replacement for my 2014 f150. In and out in minutes. Came with factory to speaker pigtails. Speakers were not as loud as I thought but great replacement anyways.

Pros: Came with factory pigtails

Cons: Not as loud as I thought they would be as per reviews. Not Crutchfield's fault.

Crutchfield customer from Burlington, WI on 6/10/2019

2006 Ford F-350

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I gave these speakers 4 stars as I rarely ever give out perfect scores. I put these in my 2006 F350 Crew Cab at all 4 corners and was amazed at the clarity and loudness over the stock speakers. I haven't upgraded from the factory head unit yet, but these speakers are begging for more power. The factory head unit doesn't come close to having enough power to distort these speakers. I'm very happy with them, and feel they are a great speaker at their price point.

Pros: Great fit, clarity, sound great.

Cons: Make you want to upgrade the head unit for more power.

I bought these Kicker 6x8 speakers to upgrade my 25W factory rear deck speakers. They not only added quite a bit of volume but the highs and lows are very well separated and I'm slowly falling in love with the brand. A few weeks earlier I upgraded my front door speakers to a different off-the-shelf brand and these put them to shame.

Super easy install, had basic idea of what I was getting into. The instructions were a great asset. They let me know ahead of time I was going in the right direction, and what to look for. Wiring harnesses turned 40 minute job into 15 minutes, Awesome deal. Oh yeh, twice the sound of factory.

Pros: Harnesses and instructions!

These Kicker 6x8's are great! They couldn't have installed any easier on my 2014 F150 and the plug and play adapters meant for even easier installation. Crisp clean sound, easy install, exactly what I hoped for. I'm no mechanic or car guy and I was able to do the install on all four speakers front and back in less than an hour. Very happy!

Replaced the trash speakers in my 2010 mustang. The treble of these speakers is very good. But I was a little surprised and dissapointed because the base is not so good. Not strong nor crisp base at all. Being kicker speakers I expected better.

Pros: Much louder than the stock my car came with. Crisp loud treble

Cons: Base is nowhere near what I expected from kicker. If you put too much base or volume it souds bad....

Clean sound at all levels

Joe from Southampton, NY on 11/27/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Kicker 43dcs6804 I give these speakers 5 stars. I have had more vehicles and audio systems than I can remember. These speakers fit perfect in the doors of my Ford Econoline and replaced the OEM speakers. I am running a high power Alpine receiver and the OEM speakers were quickly distorted by the higher output of the Alpine and were bare minimum performance even when new. I listen to music mostly at lower levels so there is not much bass from this size but no distortion. At higher volume levels the speakers stay clean and give a little bass. I'm not as interested in thump anymore at my age so no subwoofer in my future but a sub would be a great partner with these. Easy to install. A perfect fit in factory location and sound nice. You will not be disappointed.

Pros: Easy to install, perfect fit, good price, clean sound at all levels.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Fit perfectly, like they said it would. These went into our sons old 1993 F250. Sound better than the old original ones. Now the speakers and the stereo are from Crutchfield. Love the connectors to fit the Ford wiring, did not have to cut and splice at all. A little difficult to coax the ends on and then one came lose before we got the screws in. Hope they stay on now. So happy with the service.

Pros: Fit in the existing speaker grills Great price Supplied the needed connectors

Cons: Hard to connect the wiring clip

Speakers are good, They are a little more clear than stock ford speakers in my F350. It was a good purchase. Crutchfield did send connectors to make the switch a plug and play operation. So it was easy breezy to install them.

Pros: Sounds a little cleaner than stock speakers. Fit right in the area of the old speakers, no problems.

Cons: Sounds only a little cleaner than stock speakers.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

For the price and sound quality they are great. But mine got a crackle with the smallest amount of bass at even low volumes. Kicker doesn't make these anymore so I assume maybe they just sat on the shelf to long or got damaged in transit. I contacted Crutchfield and they sent out new ones within the hour. What I got were the new series Kicker speakers (CSC). They just came out and were only a few dollars more and so far so good. I'll never by from anyone else.

Pros: Good sound decent mid bass.

Cons: Most likely were just outdated I'd spend the extra few bucks on the newer ones.

These speakers are very poor quality. I should have taken the advice of other reviewers who panned these items. The oem speakers in my car sound much better than these.

Pros: They fit the openings

Cons: poor sound and appearance not worth the money.

Cons: 2 times it has happened to me that this brand of speaker quit working following a burnt plastic melt down smell. Now my whole truck smells bad.

Basic speakers with good sound, but for the price they perform as expected. Installed 4 speakers and one failed. Crutchfield sent replacements with a return shipping label to ship back. It made a little disappointment turn into getting me up and running with progress. Solutions were applied.

Pros: Having the speakers on low or high volume seem to have their own sound qualities that were adequate for the levels and type of music i was listening to.

Cons: To hear the base in these speakers you have to turn the volume up high to get the thump feel. My radio from Crutchfield has a built in equalizer that i felt needed adjusting per type of song i was listening to.

Great Upgrade

Kody from Logan, WV on 6/25/2016

2010 Ford Fusion

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have a 2010 Ford Fusion SEL and the factory speakers just weren't giving the sound I wanted, so I decided to try some new speakers without upgrading the radio because I wanted to keep all the SYNC features without spending a fortune. At first after installing these I couldn't tell much difference using SiriusXM but once I hooked up a phone with better quality audio, I was so surprised at how it sounded. It sounded like a completely different vehicle and the install process was extremely easy. If you can get the door panel off then you can install these yourself. I would highly recommend getting these as factory upgrade speakers. Just a note, I have always used factory speakers until now, I will never use the factory ones again.

Pros: Great Clarity, Decent Bass, Easy Install.

Cons: None!

These were a significant improvement for my Mustang. The sound is so much more clear. They do not add much bass but I wasn't looking for them too, I have my subs for the bass just wanted a great clear sound and they did just that.

Pros: The tweeter added clear sound.

Cons: Could produce more bass.

Installed these speakers very easily due in part to the provided install materials and excellent instructions. It took less than 45 minutes from start to finish. The sound produced is so much cleaner, crisp and better than factory speakers. Given the results on the front doors, I am now going to order and install the same speakers in the rear compartment. Very happy with choosing the Kickers

Pros: Very good speaker for the price. Exact fit with no issues during or after install. Quality of sound met expectations

Cons: No cons to report

Great Improvement

Dante from Dallas Texas on 5/16/2016

1996 Ford Bronco

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Overall drastically improved sound quality coming from my stock stereo. I have the Kicker DS door speakers and changing my rear speakers to these was a great addition. The speakers alone wont necessarily make you have a huge bass improvement (which is understandable, no 4x6 or 6x8 speaker is going to do that) but it definitely increases overall sound quality.

Pros:

Cons: The built in bracket on the kicker speakers gets bent a little when you put it into the OEM Ford Bronco speaker mounts but it doesn't rattle and fits snug so that's all that matters

Ordered these to replace factory speakers in my expedition and I was not disappointed. The sound is easily 3 times as good as the factory speakers. Mounting holes lined up perfectly, as always, the reason why I trust crutch field. Highly recommend for replacing speakers in a Mach system, the efficiency is as close to the factory deck as you can get.

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

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.
