Great sound at perfect price. Happy Happy
Great speakers for the price. Fit right I needed them to.
Pros: Fit well, deliver what I expected.
Great sound quality for the money.
Great speakers for the price. Very good sound.
Still great products
I bought these speakers for my Daughters Santa fe limited with the infinity system. If I know the 6" speakers would have fit too but I went for price and what I knew. I installed these in my Chevy Traverse and liked them very much. I made sure i had every tool I needed when I went over to her house, but forgot my drill to drill out the pop rivets that held the factory speakers on the door. Borrowed hers. this is a Murphy's law thing. The hardest part is removing the door panels but after the third the fourth is a piece of cake. I removed all of the panels while waiting for drill battery to charge. Mounting the speakers in the plastic adapters would have been easier if the screws were bigger as the temperature was around 40 F and my fingers were very cold. BTW the speaker harness connects to the speaker on the back of the speaker as you know, but the adapter doesn't have a access hole to bring back to the top side of door panel to connect to harness. so I had to make one., It would also be nice if there were extra door panel mounting posts available in the loading of the cart on the website as others things like the door panel tool does as you will most likely break a few of them. The instructions were great and the harness supplied were also great that I didn't have to cut into the harness
Pros: the sound is very good for the money
Cons: I would have wished I went with 6" as they would have fit and that was what was in the car from factory
After replacing my stock cheap paper 5x7 speakers in my Mazda 3 with these Kenwood units I was a little disappointed. My stock speakers had much more bass and sounded more rich than these Kenwood speakers. My stock speakers have really nice electrical connectors and really nice built in spacer plate. These speakers like many other speakers used a couple of spade type connectors and I had to use a plastic spacer mounted on the speaker for installation.There were multiple speaker wires on my stock speakers yet there were no instructions on how to connect them.I like the stock installation much better.
Pros: They look like a quality speaker
Cons: Not much bass
Where to start...Thin tin-ish sound that does not project. No mid bass, no bass, and vocal quality is in line with what I would expect from a 1980's era shoulder-held boom box. Two weeks before I installed these, I faded the radio to 100% rear so I could get an accurate delta after I installed these. Before the install I could hear easily while on the road at volume setting 6. With these installed I had to turn volume to setting 9 to produce the same db level. I couldn't make out lead guitar parts, and the bass line was muddled and buzzy. These are worse than the Honda Civic OEMs which are now 12 years old. I have returned these and will try out the Polk DB522.
Pros: Crutchfield provided harnesses and adapters. Easy install
Cons: Poor db level despite 90 db Sensitivity. Sounds distant. No mids. No bass. Weak vocals
Very nice speakers, much better than the stock speakers. Sound great.
Pros: Priced right! Great delivery! Sound good!
Cons: Supplied adapters needed a lot of Dremel work to fit my 2002 Trailblazer
Very durable speakers. Very clear sounds when in higher frequencies as well as mid ranges. Cranked the volume and remained excellent.
Solid speakers, cheap and really preform
Sound great. Didn't to make the spacer rings they talk about, just used medium size fender washers and original screws. This was on a 99 honda passport.
When in perfectly and sounds good. JVC covers when installed were upside down but behind the door cover so you can't see them anyway.
Sound great and perfect fit. Shipping was fast. Great bang for the buck. Thanks Crutchfield.
Product arrived very swiftly and were just as described. The included mounting brackets and wiring harness made the process a snap and everything went in with no problems. The speakers themselves (I installed 2 pair) are head and shoulders above the factory system in my Acura MDX. Great highs and responsive bass have added a new dimension to our listening experience. Can't go wrong for the price! EXCELLENT!
Pros: Ease of installation Great Highs and Mids Packs a nice punch for a small speaker
Speakers were easy to install and sounded good when we first heard them. I would buy them again with no questions
Great!! For my son civic ex. Sounds fantastic.
Pros: Great sound quality, easy installation with the hardware that came with the purchase.
Bastante bueno para el precio. Very good for the price.
Cons:Crutchfield response on December 21, 2016 Translation provided by Crutchfield's International Sales & Support team.
Great sound for the money. Excellent highs and mid, a little weak on bass when compared to the aged factory speakers I replaced in my 2000 Jeep Cherokee, but I'm OK with that since I'll soon be adding a mild sub anyway. Overall, I would recommend these speakers to a friend and would buy them again if needed.
Pros: Great value Easy installation Excellent highs and mid
Cons: Weak bass
Can't beat Crutchfield sales and service. Speaker is a little weak and light, that's my fault though, should have upgraded a bit more.
Pros: Good price
Cons: weak sound
2014 mustang don't know why Crutchfield said buy theses for my doors. They sound bad only highs stock speakers where much better. I think most of it is with the free mounting brackets Plastic and flimsy . Very disappointing. The 6x8 will fit?

Good little speaker for replacing blown factor speaker. Sound quality is good. Easy installation.
Pros: Low cost Good quality Good sound
Clean highs and great product for the money.
Replaced my stock truck speakers with the KFC 1365S. Great sound and a great price.
Kenwood quality yes it has that but the tweeter is harsh and for 5 1/4" driver no low end either. This speakers with the grills look great but that's all. I'd rather see people buy the sound ordence speaker for the same size and price !!
Pros: Looks great Kenwood build quaility
Cons: Harsh tweeter No lows
My wife's car had a bad front door speaker. a Factory replacement speaker was about $60. I ordered these for about half the price of the one speaker. The install is easy, and they fit nice. The master sheet has decent instructions. The only real drawback was that the wiring adapters do not have provisions for the factory tweeters. Not a big deal, it's an easy fix. They sound nice so far.
Pros: Nice sound, easy install. Good Fit.
Cons: The wiring adapters that come with the speakers do not have provisions for the factory tweeter connection. Not a big deal. Nothing a couple of butt connectors can't take care of,
Fit well,look good,sound OK, low s & mids are non existent,running blaupunkt capetown head unit
Pros: Fit good, look good shipped quick, nothing broken
Cons: No lows or mids to speak of
Stock speakers stopped working, so purchased these to replace. Not bad sound off of stock stereo.
Bought these to replace factory speakers in my car. Nice full sound for a cheap price. Not too much bass so if you need that spend a bit more.
Great value, the speakers dropped into place and sound great! Exactly what I was looking for.
Pros: Great price, sound great.
These speakers are great, I can't believe they are this cheap, what a deal, I will be doing business with Crutchfield again,thank you for such a great company.
This is a nice little speaker that packs a punch. I blew my factory speakers in my rear doors and required replacement speakers. I went with the Kenwood KFC-1365S mainly because of the price and awesome reviews. I was quite impressed that these speakers came complete with everything that I needed to include wiring harness and speaker mounting adapters. DIY installation took all of 10 mins per door. I was very happy with the end result and the sound quality from this trusted brand.
Pros: Everything in the package is a pro. Wiring harness Speaker adapter
Cons: May have to drill hole using the speaker adapter if not a direct fit. Really not a big deal or a con, but if there were a con; that would be it
Sounds great and easy installation! Love the product and how small of a box it came in.
For the price of the speaker its a good product. There are very few songs with a very deep bas that I feel I cannot listen to on these speakers. However the quality for rock songs is amazing. The quality is sharp and crisp.
for the price of these speakers you can't do any better
The speakers sound horrible. Both are already blown just by a base model factory Ford stereo. Do not waste your money. I will never do business with Crutchfield or Kenwood again
Cons: EverythingCrutchfield response on September 27, 2016 Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to offer this customer a replacement, or a refund.
Amazing & excellent service
Easy to install with the instruction sheet provided by Crutchfield. Speakers sound GREAT!! My old factory speakers were rattling so badly I could barely turn up the volume now I can crank it with no issues.
Pros: Easy installation ,great sound
Cons: It would have been nice if some thin washers were provided, this would have made the installation a little easier in my vehicle .
All in all I was pretty much satisfied with my purchase and the delivery. They wer fast and on time wich always helps when you are on a time-table. Thanks for the great attention.
Pros: Fairly easy instructions for installation. The wire extenders were very helpful. Sound was better after I got done.
Cons: The Adapter for the speakers were not very clear on how it was suppose to fit the speaker, but I made it work. The speakers seamed to be a little under powered when complete. They are better than the blown ones that were there.
Everything fit perfectly. Awesome sound. Great price.
Pros: Easy installation and good sound quality.
Cons: Nome for me
These are great sounding speakers for cost. I changed all four in Jimmy two stock rears were blown. I like them so much I got a pair for my boat..
Pros: Sound great
speakers are good, but speaker adapter for installation didn't match-up exactly and needed some adjusting. Wiring harness match-up perfectly.
Speakers work well. Happy with the purchase.
I love the quality and sound of these speakers. The ease of installation was great. All parts were included which I really love! Didn't have to go to different stores to get the parts to install. I have recommended Crutchfield to several people.
This was my first attempt at installing my own speakers. Crutchfield made the process easy by supplying me with everything I needed. The speakers sound way better then stock speakers did. My only negative thing to say is they have low amounts of bass. This was to be expected for the price. Overall they sound great and would get them again.
Pros: Cheap Good sounding treble and mid
Cons: Low amounts of bass
Good speaker for the money. I recommend it and would buy again.
Pros: Good sound for smaller speaker.
Cons: Needed adapter to put in my van. (Adapter was included)Not a big deal but thought the speakers would be same size as ones that came out.
Quality speaker for the price. Very crisp sounding, but like a lot of the other reviews say they do not have much bass. The only thing that upset me was that Crutchfield said they would fit perfectly in my car without needing a new speaker harness, well they were wrong. Luckily I had ordered another set of speakers from them that came with a harness. I did not use the harness to secure the other speakers as they fit fine in the rear pannel. I was able to use the harness provided by those to secure the speakers in the door. Little upset with Crutchfield as it seems their motto is they help you find the perfect fit for your car. But overall a decent speaker, not much bass.
Pros: you get what you pay for, quality speaker.
Cons: No real bass small
Went in easily. They're perfect and all I needed.
My Son loves his new radio
These speakers are one of the best I've ever had, they have the right amount of kick to them to where I'm not getting all bass and can hear the music clearly, definitely creates an awesome experience and environment in the car with and without other passengers. Love my new speakers!
Pros: A lot better than my old ones, they are more clear and can handle more bass than my old ones.
Cons: I really haven't found any cons with them yet, because I'm still finding out new stuff about them and haven't seen anything bad.
Very disappointed, was told these were the only choice for the rear doors, when any 6x8 will fit.
Cons:Crutchfield response on May 23, 2016 Whenever you are disappointed with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, please contact our Customer Support team. Purchases from Crutchfield can be returned or exchanged within 60 days of the purchase.
Pros: fits nicely
Cons: shoud have got another pair
Inexpensive replacement with a good sound
These are great for the price. Better than my stock speakers that blew out for sure. Easy to install.
Pros: They work great.
Bought these as rear door replacements. They have a decent sound for the money, a lot crisper sound but did not have much bass
Pros: crisper sound
Cons: Not much bass
Fantastic pair of speakers
I thought these speakers were going to be disappointing. Soon after installation I noticed that they seemed to have low power handling. They would easily distort like a cheaper speaker. However, the more I play them the better they sound! I guess there really is a break-in period for speakers after all. They have excellent midrange. They aren't going to completely amaze you with their bass. Consider that they are five and a quarter inches after all. I'm still waiting to purchase a ten inch woofer or two which I will drop into a custom made cabinet.
Pros: Midrange and treble clarity.
Cons: Too small for my door. I fabricated a wooden bracket to help seal them into the door for better sound.
REAL easy installation. I wasn't expecting much from these budget priced speakers, but was pleasantly surprised. Good range of sound, nice and clear, surprising bass response, all around a real nice replacement for the factory speakers.
Pros: Easy; sounded great!
Cons: none, really
excellent mid and high, very disappointed in low end. I replaced the four stock 5.25" speakers in doors and back panels of my Odyssey. These speakers are a about 1/2" smaller than stock. Understanding these are not woofers by any stretch, but at 40 Hz I was expecting better bass than the crap stock speakers. I was disappointed, the stock speakers have far more bass with 1/4 the size coil. I don't know how they do it, but the stock speakers actually sounded better down low.
Pros: very crisp sounding mids/highs, fit stock locations with Crutchfield awesome included adapters.
Cons: horribly/non-existent "bass" compared to stock junk speakers. now either put the stock back in or look into a powered sub, not something I wanted to tackle at this stage of my vehicles life.
The speakers brought back the music. 3 of 4 speakers had ceased to work. The speakers arrived soon after ordering, including the necessary connection hardware. The brackets the came with the speakers were thicker than the brackets they replaced. As a result slight modifications were needed. The vehicle is sounding better than it used to, much better.
Great speakers for the $!!! The kit had everything I needed to install. Great package for my used truck.
Pros: Everything - mount, harness, speakers, screws, total pkg
Cons: None really
They work great, not too expensive, but still high quality
Pros: Cheap, great sound, attractive
I think it important when reviewing a product you compare it to the price and your expectation. I spend roughly 20-30 minutes of my day in my care on average. I can't justify a huge expenditure on car audio with so little time spent in my vehicle. I purchased these, some kenmore for the rear door along with a new JVC head unit, in the expectation that I could upgrade my entire system from stock for roughly 200$. I was right. The sound over stock is a huge improvement in my 2013 mazda 3 sport. The speakers shouldn't be used for bass, the bass is ok though, but drives down the rest of the audio. If you care about bass you need a subwoofer. But for rock, some rap, and talk radio, these provide excellent audio for the price. 0 complaints
These are not the correct size for my car. I will have to see about returning them.
Cons:Crutchfield response on March 14, 2016 Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to help the customer. We'll either help him get these speakers installed, or help him return it for an exchange or refund.
These are some very nice speakers for the price
Pros: Great quality Cheap Easy install
Cons: None so far
good speaker for price. new grill did not fit in opening used original speaker grill.
Cons: Grill not fitting
Bought these to replace the stock speakers that blew out in my trailblazer and it sounded good, I don't know if it was just me or not after having only one speaker work for so long. But overall I like the sound and you cant beat the price either. Oh and \I have it hooked up to a kenwood deck the kvt-7012bt dvd unit.
Pros: price easy installation good sound
Cons: none yet
I put these in my 95 civic to replace the old ones. The sound quality that outputs is downright amazing for the price. I would highly recommend.
Pros: Cost Quality
The Kenwood KFC-1365S speakers and installation kit from Crutchfield were an exact fit and very easy installation. The speaker sound great and really made a difference in the sound quality of the Jeep Wrangler sound bar. I highly recommend the kit for any Jeep Wrangler owner with a tired original sound bar.
Pros: Easy installation and direct fit with installation kit
Cons: Working above your head on the sound bar makes your arms a bit tired.
Using Kenwood for years
Pros: Great speakers
Really good sound for speakers this size. Fit in my Tacoma doors with the supplied bracket(Thanks Crutchfield!) and sound MUCH better than the stock speakers. Bass gets a little "poppy" at high volume but again the speakers are only 5.25s.
Pros: Ease of Install Sound good Big improvement
Cons: Some bass loss
installed with a Jenson DUBA4100 amp. Decent sound for thexample money, not the best bass but acceptable
Speakers were easy to install and sound good - not great. Exactly what you should expect for something in this price range.
Pros: Easy to install - look great
Cons: Not that much better sounding than the stock speakers in Honda Accord.
I cannot believe the sound coming from these speakers. Crisp hi's & thumping low's. Unbelievable price compared to other sites. Speakers arrived in 2 days with free shipping. I installed them (4) in about an hour with not one complication with the specific installation instructions for my truck. I highly recommend Crutchfield for your car stereo needs. A++ all around!!
Pros: Price, shipping, ease of installation, & product is outstanding!!
These were a pleasant surprise, I had blown one of my factory front speakers and was looking for a reasonably priced comparable replacement. I am very pleased with the sound of them, they seem more accurate across the range. I hear things that were not apparent before because of their clarity. I am very happy I chose them.
Pros: nice sound, perfect fit.
Cons: none for me.
Easy to install. Good sound quality for the price.
great speakers , got harness & brackets , made it really easy to install ...
Pros: easy install , great sound for the money .
Great speakers. Super easy install with the adapters Crutchfield provides.
Sounds great in my 2002 Honda Civic. Huge improvement from factory speakers.
Pros: Bass sounds great. Clear, crisp quality.
I've been a Kenwood fan for years so I'm a little biased, but I think these units are a sound value (no pun intended) for the money.
Pros: Price, sound quality, Kenwood quality
Speakers are great and the installation guide was spot on.
Pros: Installation took <1 hour solo.
Cons: Needs more tools than instructions indicated.
Good replacement for stock speakers. Better than stock in my F250.
Pros: Good for the cost.
Cons: Don't expect these to perform if you want high volume and high power applications. They are not made for that.
Excellent speaker for the money. Real nice improvement over OEM speakers- everything sounds clearer. Quality is there. if you're looking for replacement speakers go for it.
Pros: Great improvement in audio quality
Cons: The brackets provided by Crutchfield to use these in my 06 Civic doors fit great, but the screws that came with the speakers were too long- I had to find shorter screws and use those.
I recently upgraded my 98 Grand Prix speakere to Kenwood and they sound awesome. I was looking for something that was good quality, without needing excessive audio equipment. These work very well with my Sony head unit.
Pros: Easy to install Great sound quality Inexpensive Less bulky than OEM
Cons: Don't have any
Great, easy to install and great sound!!
Very nice Speakers. Great sound and easy to install.
Pros: easy install. Great documentation
All i can say is wow. I paired these guys with the same series Kenwood 6 1/2 speakers and the sound ordnance bp8 in the suburban and i couldn't be happier. These little guys give a world of high tones yet still let you feel the rich sound of some mid range and bass frequencies. Great buy for the money.
Pros: Fit directly in the door without the use or need of a bracket.
Cons: The mounting plate where the terminals are seems a little flimsy. As long as you are careful and use your other set of fingers to brace it, you're fine. Shouldn't even matter as long as you can use some common sense.
I put these speakers i with ease in my 2000 ford ranger. I took a test drive and as soon as i got home i removed them and put the factory speakers back in. the mid range sound quality is nice but as soon as you add a little bass the quality goes bad. there is hardly any bass output and when you can hear it ( maxed volume) it sound terrible. if you are looking for a nice sounding speaker with any bass what so ever, these speakers are not for you.
Pros: easy to install Mid range is Ok- not the best
Cons: poor bass output bad bass quality
IT IS OBVIOUS THE QUALITY IS SUPERIOR TO THAT OF THE ORIGINAL. INSTRUCTIONS SHOULD BE REVIEWED BEFORE INSTALLATION AS THE RING SUPPLIED IS NECESSARY FOR 2008 DAKOTA DOORS. REUSE THE PERIMETER DOUBLE-SIDED FOAM AND NO NEED FOR THE NICE SCREEN SENT FOR EACH. SOUND IS PERFECT FOR THE TRUCK'S CAB.
Pros: FORM, FIT, FUNCTION IS IDEAL.
Cons: NOT REALLY ANY CONS. WORKS GREAT AND TAKES VERY LITTLE TIME TO INSTALL.
These speakers worked great in the Jeep Wrangler! we immediately put them in and then took a 6 hour jeep drive. Worked great and added so much sound to the drive!!
Speakers where easy to install took only 20 minutes to install both in the 2001 Buick front doors. They sound so much better than the stock speaker.
Pros: Fit east and wiring connection made it simple and fast
Cons: No issues
I would ONLY recommend these speakers if you have a way to filter out any bass frequencies and use separate speakers to fill out that low range. The speakers have decent mid-level response, but man oh man.. bass sounds horrible. Believe it or not, but my factory, paper speakers sounded better than these when songs with bass came on. Really crappy. I swapped them back out with my factory speakers and returned them to Crutchfield. Definitely avoid if you are in a simple audio installation with speakers in 4 doors that handle all the audio and the speakers handle all the ranges - these speakers don't handle low frequencies at all! Wish I had known before I bought them. Again, only consider these if you will be going through a crossover and only passing mids and highs through them.
Pros: Mids and Highs sound pretty crisp
Cons: Bass sounds horrible through these speakers.
Great speakers for a great price
Aside from the holes not lining up (and we were warned, so not a big surprise), the only thing that was problematic was the foam cushions not being available for the speakers. We were able to work around this, but these definitely would have been handy. Other than that, the speakers work well and were easy for my friend to put in place. Some double sided, padded scotch tape adhesive did help to end what little distortion there was from not having the liners, and all sounds fantastic.
Pros: Nice sound, easy to install.
Cons: Holes don't line up, so drill is necessary. Baffles unavailable.
Great speakers especially for the price! Installed these in my daughters Mazda Tribute, perfect fit with the provided bracket. Simple install. My daughter loves them.
Pros: Easy install, great sound. Price
good speaker on the chizzeap
Cons: NO CONS to speak of
Now we can jamb
Pros: easy install
These speakers can't handle any bass. I had to turn the bass down all the way to get them to put out anything other than static. I would highly advise you buy something else with your money.
Pros: Cheap, easy install
Cons: Poor quality, no support for lows, tinny sound.
work great for the price
Pros: sound great to about 3/4 volume
Cons: cant handle loud setting on radio. sound gets flat at high volume.
Great deal great price . 2007 Crown Vic P71
Pros: Great deal great price
Good mid grade speaker
These were purchased as a direct replacement for deteriorated door speakers in my 2000 GMC. For the money, they make a perfect choice with decent sound that is somewhat better than the stock speakers when they were new. It remains to be seen how they perform when I replace the stereo head with a better unit.
Pros: low cost, fit, easy installation, good quality for the money
Cons: not a high end speaker, don't expect high end at this level.
Kenwood quality on a budget
Pros: price point, good sound, nice upgrade to stock
Cons: highs not a sharp as I would prefer
I installed 4x of these to replace the factory speakers on an '01 Jeep Cherokee. I had to drill new holes for the front two; the back to went right in as-is. Good sounds quality for the money and easy installation with the included tethers.
The speakers sound much better than the OEM they replaced. Downside was that Crutchfield said they would fit. Well, after getting special aftermarket mounting rings, they fit. Not quite how Crutchfield described.
Cons:Crutchfield response on June 1, 2015 Whenever you encounter a problem with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, especially a situation like this, please contact our customer service or tech support teams right away. They can help you solve the problem and get the speakers installed and working!
Bought to replace blown rears on my Odyssey van. They are definitely better than blown speakers but they cannot handle the bass output of the Honda stock receiver. I had to turn bass down to +1/+2 to keep them from overdriving. Another review mentioned harsh highs and mids, which is also an issue w/this speaker. If I had a different head unit or ability to EQ the front/rear speakers differently, they might be a good contender for their price range. My van only has bass/treble so I ended up fading the front speakers up more to keep the rears from getting as much volume. Fine with me since I'm usually the only passenger and my kid uses the headset for the rear DVD so the speakers are usually Off on a long trip or family drive. I bought them because "cheap speakers was better than blown or No speakers..." so that was certainly my expectation. Defintely don't get these if bass/low end is a Must for you out of this pair. I'm a semi-pro audio engineer and while sound quality is usually a high item on my list, it really came down to replacing the factory speakers with something decent for the lowest price possible. A disappointment in Kenwood but so far they are getting the job done.
Pros: Easy install Compatible with existing factory grilles Basic speaker at a low price
Cons: Low end and bass tends to distort, even at medium volumes or medium bass EQ Tweeters are overpowering in the 4k-8k frequency range, but could be corrected with decent EQ
Installed in about half an hour...most of which was spent pulling the door panels off. Sounded great and was an immediate improvement. Could turn the stereo up and hear the songs better instead of worse. This is compared to cheap factory speakers of course.
Pros: Clear sound. Small clearance so it fits behind the door panels with no mods.
Cons: None yet.
The speakers came with adapters and clear instructions to fit perfectly in my Isuzu Rodeo front door speakers
These speakers were cheap but had good reviews so I bought them to replace my factory speakers. They installed nicely, then sound is very clear but any sort of beat to the music sounds awful. Almost like a hard knocking sound. There is basically no bass at all and I don't listen to heavy bass music. I have to say that Crutchfield was very helpful and let me return them no questions asked. I did purchase a new car stereo that is amazing, I will purchase from them again
Pros: Sounds clear
Cons: Any bass at all sounds awful
Quality and ease of installation is great. Sound is great for the price.
Extremely easy replacement to factory speakers. Took me 30 minutes per door. No extra parts needed and with the included wiring it was a no-brainer. They sound good and handle the range pretty well.
Pros: Easy factory replacement, good sound quality.
Great value for the money, not much base but overall the sound is OK
Fits perfectly, and easy to install. Overall great speakers! great for replacing factory speakers.
Pros: Has added twitters! Sounds great doesn't distort when played in loud.
Easy assembly and install with provided mounting brackets. Good value for a quick fix if all you need is an easy replacement.
easy to install great sound could not be happier
Excellent! Install was perfect and speakers sound great.
Pros: Easy install and sound is great
Replaced my tweeters in my 05 Grand Caravan, these have much better sound, not to mention louder and deeper!
Pros: Ultimate stock tweeter upgrade!
Excellent replacement for the stock infinity speakers that gave up the ghost years ago. Simple install mwith included kits. Good value priced speakers.
Really nice speaker for the price. Clear crisp sound. Easy installation.
Pros: Clear crisp sound. Easy installation.
these do get very loud but the tweeter is very harsh at moderate volumes if the treble is up at all. These speakers are very clean below half volume but anything higher and they sound like swap meet speakers even with the bass turned down, mids are lacking which surprised me, a snare drum is not snappy at all, this speaker is pretty much just like a giant tweeter. I am running them off of a jvc head unit but I will be getting some polks soon to replace these. Do yourself a favor and shell out the extra 20-30 dollars and get something better. the only good thing really is they have really nice grills and seem to be made well overall.
Pros: well made, nice grills , shallow mount, super light and easy to install
Cons: sound is not up to par with the kenwood products I have had in the past, bass and mids are lacking, tweeter overly bright
Good sound for money
Pros: Good base
Cons: Quality could be better, but still good
nice speakers for the price. will replace some rusty old speakers on my boat.
For the price, these speakers are an amazing value. I installed them as rear speakers in my 1996 BMW Z3. They have a fairly shallow mounting depth, a plus for me. Overall, the sound is full and does not favor either treble or bass. There is some bass, but this is not a substitute for a subwoofer. I would recommend them without hesitation, regardless of the value!
Pros: Consistent full range sound. Good cardboard template on the box. Awesome value!
Cons: No speaker wires - only 3" terminal connectors. If you are looking for heavy bass, this is not your speaker.
Overall, nice sounding speakers. Would have gotten a 5 out of 5 if it had a connection to hook up stock tweeters.
Pros: Good bass; Nice sound; Easy install
Cons: No hook up for stock tweeters.
Very nice speakers for a cheap price, sounds nice with a stock Radisson. Would sound better if you had a low watt amp connected to it
Pros: Easy to install
Cons: Only has one connection port
Great little speaker for the price, good full sound for the size of the speaker, just realize your on going to get so much from a 5 1/4 speaker. Mixed with Crutchfields speaker install kit and it popped right into the door of my truck, and plugged right into the factory wiring just like a stock speaker, absolutely no fuss.
Pros: Good speaker, good price
Cons: A 5 1/4 will only put out so much sound, ie bass
I used these to replace some boston 3 ways. These sound much more clear to me, at a cheap price
You get what you pay for. They are okay speakers not great if your looking bass in a speaker. But overall pretty decent sound especially in small cars.
Fits and sounds perfect!
A++ As advertised and quick shipping.
These speakers sound great in my jeep
Installed these in my old Chevy pickup with a new head unit and it makes the bluegrass music sound amazing. The banjo just really pops with these. The highs and mids are extremely crisp. Now I just need to work on the low end.
Pros: Amazing sound
Cons: Lack of any low end which I was expecting.
Good speakers for the price. BAss isnt the best but still good enoug. I put these in my sons 2007 Honda civic and that is the factory size (5 1/4"). However the free mounting kit has a lot to be desired. I tossed them and just mounted the speakers wiht four sheet metal screws then sealed any gaps with foam tape.
Pros: Decent sound for price
Cons: Lack of good deep bass
I like these speakers, for factory sound they fit and they sound great.
great entry level speakers, put this in a 09 acura tsx (base model) so definitely an upgrade over factory
Pros: easy to install
The Kenwood speakers deliver ok when there is not that much instrumentation. Forget listening to big band, choir+orchestra. Better go with a less tiring, higher definition sound and pay more. Btw I did put in a good Kenwood Excelon head unit and re-wired with hi-def Monster speaker-cable.
Pros: Not a problem to instal
Cons: Limited to certain genres of music with few instruments / vocals
The speakers are being installed into my 1961 Mercury Monterey Convertible along with new kick panels designed for the speakers. The Auto restoration shop has not installed them yet but they said that from past experience, they whould provide much improved sound.
Great buy for the money
Pros: Easy install Good sound Affordable
The sound is great and much better than the factory speakers.
Excellent items and delivery. Simple install
I not a fan of taking stuff apart on the car and trying to fit-in new stuff and experiencing pain in have parts not fit and stuff, but this darn thing works, and the install-kit stuff provided by Crutchfield really made it much simpler... no cutting no splicing; everything like snaps right into place like factory... feels good to get those spaces between the door panels all nicely cleaned, and the window motors/tracks lubed up too.
Pros: Hi-Fi sound... very decent repro of high-mids and esp lows compared to the factory speaks; my prev set breaks up a higher volume levels due to years of abuse
Cons: Doesn't glow with blue LED lights...
Just installed these tonight to replace my stock rear speakers in an 01 jeep cherokee. Far better sound quality overall than the stock ones and at a great price. No these are not subwoofers so don't expect to them to sound like a jl w7. But they do have a little more "bump" on the low end than the stock speakers after all they are only 5.25". I have had Rockford fostgate, kicker, alpine, blaupunkt and bose speakers in different vehicles the past and these matched with 6.5" kenwoods up front sounds just as good as any of them to me.
Pros: Price, sound, look.
Great deal for the money spent.
Pros: Exact fit & easy install with great sound.
Cons: Nothing bad to say!
placed in Jeep wrangler TJ, fit fine, great sound in not sound friendly environment. Great customer service from Cruthfield. I didn't have a sound system when I bought the jeep so can't say if better over stock but for the price these are great.
Pros: fit right in, sound great.
Sounds good for the price
Great product for the price. Easy installation. Sound is nice. I put them in my 2007 Trailblazer. Can only recommend.
Pros: Very easy to install.
Best 5-1/4 inch speaker I have seen in a long time.
Pros: Very good for a 5-1/4 inch speaker
Great crisp sound. A lot of bang for your hard earned buck.
Pros: Price, sound, looks
I replaced my factory speakers with these Kenwood speakers and I have to say, I am impressed. These speakers were worth every cent. The sound quality is extremely clear in my car and I am very happy with these speakers.
Pros: Sound quality is very clear. Very good mids and highs. Decent lows, varies on the song.
Cons: If you have any songs that were downloaded from YouTube, chances are that they may be low quality and the bad quality really shows on these speakers. I would recommend playing only the best quality songs or you will not like the way your song sounds.
speakers are great great sound quility
Not s bad little speaker for the price. Had enough extra mounting areas to make most install positions work.
These speakers sound great.
Pros: Easy to install
I bought these to replace the factory speakers in a 99 LeBaron. Don't expect great things from them, after all they were the cheapest 5 1/4 speakers on Crutchfield.com. The front speakers I replaced with these didn't work at all. I drive this car to work and back so I wanted something that would at least make some sound. I am happy with them.
Let me preface this by stating that I have been using Kenwood products for a number of years - in previous and current vehicles. These were purchased as part of a set for my wife's 2004 Jeep Wrangler Sport with soft-top and roll-bar speakers. For the front in-dash speakers I used Kenwood KFC-4675C - the two have a real good balance together. Why did I pick these? Compared to other speakers at this price-point, they had the best range: 40-22kHz. These actually replaced a set of blown-out JVC speakers that had a frequency response of 20-24kHz, but they came with the car and were of unknown age. Installation was very easy. Kenwood things easier by supplying new brackets and screws. The face-plates/shields for the speakers line up PERFECTLY on the mounting flanges of the speakers, so you're not sitting there trying to line everything up for an hour. However the face-plates are a bit over-sized. If you are not flush-mounting these to a door you may experience issues with the face-plates not fitting into recessed openings. The sound is great for a mid-range speaker. I am not running a sub-woofer or amp in the system and for my wife (who drives this the most) the sound is clear and audible even when freeway driving (soft-top Jeep, remember?) Not too much of a punch/kick to these on full bass but well-rounded for low-mid range speakers. AND I can trust the quality.
Pros: - Good kit hardware. - Face-plates line up with the speaker mounts - Great customer service - Good quality for the price - Durable
Cons: - Over-sized face-plates
pretty good as cheap as they were
Great speakers and easy install it was great to get everything I needed without having to ask
Pros: Easy install
Cons: Better instructions on removing door panel would have been helpful
My dealings with The Crutchfield co. was a pleasure. Everything about it was very professional. The kenwood speakers are working great. . Thank You so much
Pros: Professional as good as it gets.
Just what I wanted and is very satisfactory!
Better quality speaker than the factory original; however, they are smaller than advertised 5 1/4 inch size.
Pros: Easy to install
Cons: Only 4 3/4 inch
Nice speakers, look and sound great.
Pros: Crutchfield supplied all the necessary parts to fit. Easy!
needed to replace rear speaker in my 02 dodge intrepid. sounds good but can't really take the power of a amp I have hooked up for highs
Pros: easy to install and with installation kit that came with it and a great price
I can't believe you can get a great sound from such a small speaker, But you can!! Great job Kenwood , Great job!
Pros: Easy to install, Thanks to Crutchfield and their free installation kits.
was looking for a replacement for my blown up stock speakers, and these got the job done
Pros: great sound
Cons: not enough bass
Needed speakers for an old 1994 Volvo. Crutchfield very good at finding speakers that fit well, easy to install, and at a good price point given the age of the car and abuse my kids would contribute. BIg Box store had installed other name brand speakers in the front, and I saw it was not to challenging, and installed easily. And the speakers at near the same price point sound much better than the fronts. Might actually replace the fronts also if the car doesn;'t disintegrate first (300K miles and going strong)
Pros: Easy to install, good fit, good value.
Cons: Might be the last thing left standing in the car. If anyone is looking for a couple of doors with speakers for a 94 Volvo wagon.....
