Infinity's Kappa Series 462.11cfp 4"x6" plate speakers continue in the tradition of this legendary line of speakers, offering rugged construction and impressive sound quality. Once installed, these speakers will bring out every nuance and detail in your favorite music tracks, making time spent in your car seem more like a concert than a commute.
If you're looking for natural-sounding high frequencies, Infinity uses edge-driven 3/4" soft dome tweeters in this system. The "edge-driven" design creates a larger tweeter that handles more power and delivers smooth response way down into midrange frequencies not covered by smaller "W"-shaped domes. You'll hear a more clearly defined soundstage where you can picture the placement of every instrument. Each tweeter also features a level control switch so you can adjust the brightness to your taste.
The Kappa glass fiber woofer holds its shape when the power's cranked up, so you still get punchy and defined bass. Glass fiber weighs less than traditional materials, so you don't need a ton of power to drive this woofer. Infinity's Plus One+ woofer technology extends the cone right up to the edge of the basket, giving you more surface area than with most comparable speakers. A bigger cone means more bass to complement the superior high-frequency response.
These 2-ohm speakers are sensitive enough that you can power them with an aftermarket stereo, but you'll get your best results feeding them plenty of power from an outboard amp — up to 60 watts RMS. Grilles are not included — factory grilles are appropriate for most installations.

these little speakers sound bigger than they look! They really rounded out the sound in my GMC
Great sounding speaker.
These Infinity's are easy to install, sound great and are a good compliment to a system that has larger woofers (6 1/2 or 6 3/4 or even better - a sub). My rear doors only handle a 4x6 but these were great in that they deliver the quality and sound of components with a built in bracket to fit a 4x6 perfectly. Love 'em! I only with I bought infinity speakers for my front door (6 3/4)! I got the JVC's cuz they were on sale but with I would have dropped a bit more $ for the better Inifinity's.
Pros: Component speaker design in one easy to install piece. Great sound Handles high power well Doesn't distort easily
Cons: Small woofer doesn't put out much bass (good speakers if you have others that are larger and deliver better bass hits)
They are the best i have found for a 4x6 and they fit in a S10 with no problem.
Great sounding speakers throughout the range.
Pros: Great sounding speakers. Fit perfectly.
These DO fit my 1990 GMC C1500 (Sierra) Regular Cab. Dash corner location: is snug, one could trim the insulation padding to create more space. However, it isn't necessary. My concern was the heat/AC duct on the passenger side, but after dropping the speaker in, she fit like a glove! The infinity's sit a little higher than the factory speakers. So, I recommend a small, very simple modification. On the backside of the factory speaker grills is an oval ring the size of the actual 4x6 driver. It has plastic slots that cover the speaker when installed. I took a Dremel and cut that portion out (staying inside the defined plastic oval ring) leaving me with the outside perimeter grill structure intact and secure. Do not cut any of the grill's cover fabric. Simply snip away the 4x6 plastic oval grate. This will enable the speaker driver to move up and down freely with no chance of damaging the cone. Behind the seat speaker location: take the factory speakers out, put the Infinity's in. Literally that simple. As a side note - they sound great with no amplification. They sound phenomenal amplified!! Night and day difference! Do yourself a favor and buy a 4 channel amp with at least 60 watts per channel. Oh and while your at it, get yourself a nice head unit so you have the ability to fine tune your setup! (Not needed, totally recommended!)
Cons: Not a one!
I love these speakers they were easy to install and the sound is excellent. they fit perfectly in my 2002 blazer
I have used Infinity speakers multiple times. Infinity is the only brand I shop for anymore. These particular speakers were no disappointment. They sound really good!
Pros: Appears high quality, sounds high quality
These speakers sound great.
Pros: Great clear sound
Great soundind and easy install.
These speakers perform better than stock and bolt right up in the factory mounts of the corner dash of my 2006 jeep wrangler unlimited.
Pros: good fit to jeep wrangler corner dash
Cons: sound better with foam or after market plastic box in the dash behind the speaker
I put these in my rear doors and was I surprised by how they put out such a full sound from them. Love them!!
Pros: Nice mid-bass with crisp highs.
Cons: Would be nice if they had some speaker grills and if the tweeters were adjustable to fire at different angles.
Great sound from these speakers, easy to install and we are very pleased with them
Pros: Easy installation, great sound through different levels and types of music
These speakers were recommended by Conrad, and they are great. The sound is very crisp and clean. I was concerned about the output of such a small speaker, but I was wrong. Because of the magnet size, I had to modify the plastic door mount brackets. The installation was a breeze.
Pros: A powerful for the size, clean and crisp sound
Great product, love the big sound from such a small speaker. Worth every penny.
Pros: Clear sound, can handle all sorts of bass and treble at the same time without distortion.
Put them in the kick panels of my 67 Camaro. Drastically better than the previous Pioneer 4x6 speakers. Very clear and get tremendously louder without breaking up.
Pros: Best 4x6 I have heard.
Great speakers for the money! Sound great in my 2001 Silverado extended cab rear doors
Pros: Great sound...easy install
Cons: No issues at all. Definitely recommend to anybody looking for an inexpensive upgrade!!
They are perfect for me! Crutchfield states that they will not fit the dash. Yes. But if someone knows how to modify the air conditioning ducts by heat gun, they can be molded to clear they magnets. Filing off the grille pegs also allow easy installation. These are mods many folks may not want to venture into. But for me, I didn't want two set of speakers so close together by doing kick panel installation. They would have been right beside the door speakers when closed.
Pros: Sound quality is very nice, very clear. Kappa series have a quality build of products, expect years of enjoyment.
Cons: None, except for my install, it took some modifications, but I knew that ahead of time and didn't stray from the project.
My previous speakers were about $50. I wish I could compare these to the upper level speakers, but at least I now have a system that can get much louder without distortion.
Excellent sounding speakers that miles above the factory speakers in my Wrangler. Speak envelopes my car with sound and bass is punchy enough for me without a sub though some people's opinion may differ. Easy to install
Pros: Big sound
Good overall sound. I wasn't blown away, but it was way better than the factory speakers I replaced. Tyler who helped me online was very helpful and knowledgeable.
Pros: fairly easy to install
Cons: They sent me wire harnesses which needed to be cut to connect to the existing wiring. Had to go buy butt connectors. Why didn't they just include what we needed?
These speakers added a huge boost from the back seat in my 01 Chevy Silverado. I was a little nervous about drilling new holes, but it was very simple and easily done. Installed with a little dynamat to add that clarity I was looking for.
Pros: sound, bass, clarity
Cons: have to drill holes
Way more then I expected out of a pair of 4x6 speakers excellent sound clear so awesome!
Pros: Great sound quality well designed
Cons: NO CONS!
Speakers really scream! Replaced my Pioneer 4x6 and wow, what a difference! So glad I spent the extra $$$ on these Infinity speakers, well worth the money!
they are good for the size to replace a 4 by 6
Sound good better than the stock
These door speakers are great, they fit perfectly in my doors when I thought they wouldn't, but they slipped right in. They hit the symbols and higher pitched stuff like they are supposed to nice and crisp. They're great for the price and sound great with my two 10" subs. Without them all I'd hear is booooom and nothing more haha.
Pros: Crisp, loud, can handle a lot of power constantly. And no theirs not much bass people that not what door speakers are for..
Awesome pair of speakers for my jeep. Plenty of power and sound.
Pros: Easy to hook up, has a switch for custom tuning.
Bought these speakers as a factory replacement item. With the instructions provided installation was simple. I did go to a local retailer and buy some plastic interior/trim tools which helped immensely. The pigtails provided allowed easy install and no wire cutting. The sound of these speakers compared to stock are really impressive I am using my stock head unit and am thrilled with these speakers. I listen to rock/metal and these speakers are up to the challenge. All original panels went back on flawlessly.* note you will have to drill mounting holes and supply your own hardware. not a straight swap but worth the little bit of effort if you have a drill,bits and are mechanically inclined. Speakers have a much better sound , much richer,deeper and the clarity is second to none. A+
Pros: Sound Great
Cons: Could be a challenge for some,pretty simple for most.
Easy to install, sound is great
Pros: easy to install
Great Speakers for our Jeep Wrangler, and they were simple to install
Pros: Great sound. Easy to Install.
The speakers sound great with the infinity that in the front doors a matched set
Pros: great sound easy to install
Sound great nice fit great quality
They fit in my dash stock locations regardless of what Crutchfield said. They fill the highs very nicely.
Replaced OEM speakers in my GMC Sierra ext cab, great improvement.
Pros: Price Sound Easy install
These babies fit perfect with the adapter that came with them, sound excellent. Great product.
Pros: Fast delivery, easy install, sound great.
Cons: None so far.
I am fully satisfied and will continue to use this product.
Easy install , great sound , better power handling, and even better soundstage.The only problem is the connectors supplied are to short . I had to jerryrig it .
Pros: All stated earlier
Cons: Except the connection wire nothing yet
I blew the stock rear speakers in my truck and didn't realize for a couple weeks. I came to the conclusion it was because of the sound quality coming from my infinity front speakers so I decided on matching them in the rear. I ordered the speakers and they arrived to my house in two days! Great service!
Pros: Fast shipping, great product, excellent customer service
Installed yesterday, in a 2000 Malibu. Deck: cde-141bt, amp: jbl-gto-3ez, 3 channel. The speakers are 2 ohms, so running off a deck, is a bad idea. Amp rms rating of 75W @ 2 ohms, crossed them over at just above 80 hz, and those speakers sound incredible! Great vocals, crisp highs, and too the power like a champ! Highly recommended!!!
Pros: Awesome sound!!
Cons: No hardware included, but between the screws holding the oem speakers, and the included harness from Crutchfield, easy install
Ordered the speakers and they were on time. They sound better than expected. Clear and crisp.
Pros: Easy to change out with provided wiring harness. Easy bolt on.
Cons: Have found nothing negative about them.
Great speakers, excellent compliment to the Primus series in front. This awesome little plate speaker dropped right into place in the rear doors of an 02 Silverado ext. cab. Took longer to remove and reinstall the door panels themselves. Can't wait to install an amp, and really get them going!
Pros: High quality, great price!
The speakers seem to be good units, but with the underpowered head unit I attached them to, I won't be able to really gauge the sound quality until I get the new amp installed.
Pros: The plate design fit perfectly into the stock dash location in my 2001 Jeep Wrangler. I also liked the fact that a small dome discrete tweeter was worked into the design.
Cons: I wish the speakers had a higher power rating.
Compared to the stock speakers this is a great improvement. Using with stock radio sounds really clear. Did a little research and I think the sensitivity of 94 dB was the key. Went right in to the dash with free wiring adapter and install plates.
Pros: Great sound and easy install.
Installed these in the stock location (high behind the seat) 2011 GMC 3500. They are underpowered by the stock radio but the 2 ohm impedence was supposed to help with that. Can't say they are a big improvement, none at all unless you turn the volume up fairly loud. For the money i would suggest you try something else.
Great sounding speakers for the rear doors in my 2005 Silverado. Bought them to match the Infinity Kappa speakers I recently installed in my front doors.
Pros: Excellent speaker for the money. Make sure you also get the speaker baffles.
Cons: No hardware to install the speakers. Front door speakers came with sheet metal screws. Had to stop the installation and drive to the local hardware store and buy 8 sheet metal screws and washers. It wasnt' the money that was the issue it was the time. The screws should have been included.
I have been doing some research on what speakers I wanted for my Jeep , the Infinity Kappa 462.11cfp had everything I was looking for in a speaker. Clean crisp sound with just enough punch and super bright highs... the sound is pretty awesome and with the install plates and wire harness that Crutchfield send you for free ,made the install super easy had them installed in little under 30 min ,no hassle fit for the 02 Wrangler.... My Jeep still has the factory cd player receiver with a 3 band eq and the speakers sound is what i wanted... when the new head unit is installed the sound will probably be even better.. cannot wait.
Pros: great price, awesome sound.... easy to install
Cons: I have no regrets buying these speakers,just what I was looking for......

Plus One Woofer Cones: The Plus One speaker cones offer more surface area than other speakers that fit in the same size opening. This is accomplished by using a new basket design and hi-roll surround. The result is greater bass output and a significant increase in efficiency.
Formed Glass Fiber Woofer Cones: The formed glass fiber cone material is very light and extremely stiff, minimizing flex. This results in very low distortion and improved clarity.
iCGM frames: The Kappa series speaker baskets are made of composite Injected Carbon Glass Matrix (iCGM). iCGM is lighter and stronger than stamped steel; it retains its shape, even when mounted on uneven surfaces (common in car mounting locations), plus offers exceptional damping of any resonances.
Edge Driven Dome Tweeters: Each speaker has a 3/4" Edge-driven textile soft dome tweeter. An edge-driven tweeter has better dispersion characteristics and allows for a lower crossover frequency than typical tweeters of the same size, which improves imaging. The result is improved vocals and musical clarity. The tweeter also has an adjustable output level, +0 dB (flat) and +3 dB.
High-Output Design: The high output 2-ohm voice coil design compensates for the high in-line resistance of small gauge factory wiring and extracts every watt from factory receivers, increasing overall system output and efficiency (relative to 4 ohm speakers). The speaker's 2.0-ohm impedance combined with the impedance of your speaker wire provides a true 4-ohm load to your connected headunit or amplifier. The speakers also benefit from increased power when you upgrade the wire and add aftermarket amplifiers, designed to power a 2-ohm load.
Power Handling: Although Infinity lists the RMS power handling as 60 watts, they also list the recommended power range as 5-100 watts RMS. We've opted to list the more conservative 60 watt RMS figure on the specifications page.

The high-pass filter frequency for the built-in tweeters of these speakers is not published by Infinity. I can tell you it is at a frequency optimized for the tweeter and ensures it does not receive any frequencies below the range it can produce accurately. If you need the specific cutoff frequency, you can try contacting Infinity directly: 800-553-3332 I hope that helps!

It is to control the crossover for the speakers. Set it up one way then sit and listen, do the same for the other setting which setting sounds best in your car. Go for it. [ ROBERT Jan 16, 2015 ]
I went with the +3 db setting on these. I think that was with the button pushed in. The only reason to do this that I could come up with was that I got a bit more highs at lower volumes. It helped brighten up the sound in my truck a bit more. [ KEVIN Jan 12, 2015 ]
Thanks man. I'll probably run them without an amp until I get some money. I just didn't know if they would work at all without one. [ Caleb Aug 03, 2014 ]
Thanks! [ Caleb Aug 03, 2014 ]
I bought the 462.11 speakers for the front dash and the 52.11 for the sound bar in my 04 Wrangler. I wanted speakers with a 90 or higher dB Sensitivity rating. Wired them in to the stock wiring harness and we can now hear the radio with the top and doors off. If my radio goes out I'll replace it with something with more power but for now the stock radio sounds a lot better after replacing the speakers. I was thinking of replacing the radio at the same time but being cheep I decided to change out the speakers first to see how it sounded. Hope this helps. [ MICHAEL Aug 03, 2014 ]
The speakers will sound great if your powering them by an after market head unit. But keep in mind most after market head units push out 45 watts peek power not RMS power. So chances are if you run them off of the head unit you could only push the speakers at half capacity. If you amp them you will get the full capacity of the speakers. [ ADRIAN Aug 02, 2014 ]
no amp for the front [ LARRY R Aug 02, 2014 ]
