Video: Kicker DS car speakers and DX amplifiers
Most of the people appearing in our videos are employees at Crutchfield. We pull in folks from around the company to share their expertise. A lot of our on-camera stars come from our Advisor Group — they help people choose the right gear via phone, email and chat every day, so they're good at explaining the products and technologies.
Heads up!Welcome to this article from the Crutchfield archives. Have fun reading it, but be aware that the information may be outdated and links may be broken.
Kicker's DS car speakers and DX amplifiers give you the serious performance you'd expect from Kicker, at a price that won't break your budget. They're a great replacement for factory speakers, and their thin profile ensures they'll fit into most vehicles.
Logan: I'm here at the Kicker booth CES 2014 with Aaron from Kicker. He's gonna give us a rundown of the new DS line of speakers they've got.
Aaron: Well, thanks for coming to our booth today. DS speakers are perfect if you want Kicker performance but you're working with a budget, because you get actual Kicker speakers that are designed and engineered by the same team of guys and girls that do our really high end stuff. They put the same technology, the same knowledge, into the entry level product so it's still real Kicker stuff at a great price point.
We've also improved the fit ratio. No matter how good the speaker sounds, if it doesn't fit in your car, you're not gonna use it. So they sound great and they fit in about 90% of the vehicles out there with no modification. So for a guy like me that's not real bright at install, I can still put these in myself.
In addition, we've got some new DX amplifiers. These amplifiers are on the same philosophy as these speakers — real Kicker power at a budget price. So we're not skimping on any of the internals. We're not skimping on any of the features. You're just getting rock solid Kicker power at a really good price.
