About the Kicker 43DSC69304

The Kicker fit

Kicker's DS Series 43DSC69304 6"x9" 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"x9" speakers will give you the kind of clarity you've never had with your factory speakers. The 3-way design recreates a dynamic sound, dedicating the highs to the PEI domed tweeter and supertweeter while sending the lower frequencies to the big polypropylene woofer. They'll conjure hefty volume even from low-powered factory radios, so you can confidently pump your jams for years to come.

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 Mid/Tweeter: The 1/2" tweeter and 2" midrange are balanced-domes, made of PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide, polymer film). PEI provides 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.

Customer Q&A

11 questions already asked

will you price match.?
[ Jeffrey  Jan 04, 2020 ]
1 answer
You should reach out to one of our advisors for more personalized help. WE do price match with certain vendors, under certain circumstances, but you will lose the free installation gear that comes with the speakers.
[ Calvin  Jan 15, 2020 ]  Staff
Did any one else have a problem with the brackets not lining up with the mounting holes on the speaker? I'm installing these on a 2018 Silverado custom double cab, and the brackets aren't securely holding the speaker down.

Will these fit in the door of a 2003 dodge ram 1500 without having to do anything special? I'm seeing a lot of people having trouble fitting aftermarket 6x9's in the existing holes because the framework on the back of the aftermarket speakers are too wide. Thanks.
[ Catdiesel88  Apr 14, 2019 ]

These will fit into that pickup's factory cutout hole without having to do any modifications to the stock speaker location. There may be issues with impedances in some of those pickups if you intend on connecting these to the stock system and amp. I recommend contacting an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 to discuss your goals and system plans to check if these will work for you in your system My Bio:
[ Paul  Apr 22, 2019 ]  Staff
Would 50w RMS be a good amount of power for these, or should I spend more on an amp?
[ Joseph  May 15, 2018 ]
1 answer
These speakers work with a wide variety of power for different levels of performance. There are customers that would enjoy the sound with 50 watts RMS going to them and some that would need more, but also some that don't need that much power. I recommend calling an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 for a personal recommendation on what power is needed for your goals. My Bio:
[ Paul  Jun 04, 2018 ]  Staff
90 watts RMS, is that the 2 speakers combined? Making them each maximum handling 45 watts rms??
[ Travis  Jul 16, 2017 ]
1 answer
Thanks for your question. The wattage ratings are per speaker, so the wattage would be 90 watts for each individual speaker. Hope this helps.
[ Kenny  Jul 17, 2017 ]  Staff
the kicker speakers I have are cs series what's the difference between ds and cs?
[ Phillip  Jul 05, 2017 ]
1 answer
Thanks for your question. For information on comparing two or more models I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences and help you make the best choice for your system and your budget.
[ Kenny  Jul 06, 2017 ]  Staff
I have a 2002 WJ Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with the Premium Sound Infinity system. The front door speakers are not full-range but woofers as the woofers and dash speakers go through the Infinity amp. I believe the amp has built-in cross-overs for the dash and front door speakers (and rear door speakers). Will these speakers still work with my setup? Thanks!
[ Johnny Jeeper  May 15, 2017 ]

For additional details on fit or 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 how everything integrates and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle.
[ Kenny  May 15, 2017 ]  Staff
I recently installed a pair of these in my 2008 Ram to replace the Infinity speakers that were buzzing at times. The Kickers are amazing, with a whole new depth, and range. I'm so happy with them I want to replace the 6 1/2" round rear speakers. I'm thinking the closest I can get to these are Kicker 40CS654. Does that sound like a good setup?

Highly recommend replacing them all doors dash the works I did in my 02 dodge ram big difference
[ James  Nov 25, 2017 ]
I just replace them in my 2008 Buick with the same ones and it sound great ,so this would be a good set up for you.. Enjoy!!
[ Sherman  Jun 19, 2016 ]
Where do you setup your crossover point for these speakers?
[ Bumpbump  Jun 15, 2016 ]

Didn't use crossovers...stock Bose amp..may add higher power amp later..good luck
[ Thomas  Jun 15, 2016 ]
Amp suggestions? Size? Bridged?
[ Jon  Mar 28, 2016 ]
7 answers
I have no suggestions. I had stock speakers that were blown and needed some new ones. I think crutch field either had a sale or made a suggestion. I bought a new deck and a six speakers deal it sounds great. I didn't buy it to pound and shake my car, but it is clear sounding.
[ Ryan  Apr 04, 2016 ]
Large 4 ch kicker and no bridge.
[ Jason  Mar 29, 2016 ]
I'm running the same kicker speakers in my rear doors, on my 2013 Dodge Dart Ralley. Front doors I run the 6.5 kicker. Im not useing a amp on at all. Happy with the stock stereo pushing these. If I were to use a amp, I wouldn't use any thing over 200 watts, and wouldn't bridge it. I'd run the amp in stereo, should and would sound just fine. Just my opinion. Hope this helps, and good luck with your kicker speakers. Like mine a lot.
[ Ronald  Mar 29, 2016 ]
These don't need a amp, the sound would probably be better amped thoe. These speakers don't need much power and just a factory upgrade in my opinion.
[ Dan  Mar 29, 2016 ]
2 channel amp 75x2@4oms
[ GARY  Mar 29, 2016 ]
I don't have an answer for you, since I used these speakers as a direct replacement using the factory stereo in my son's car. Sorry.
[ ROD  Mar 29, 2016 ]
I used the Alpine 4 channel 180 watt amp in 4 channel unbridged configuration for my installation and am very happy with the sound. Solid low end tone / bass and crisp mid tones. I don't think the speakers need any more power as they can get painfully loud as is with no distortion.
