Install these budget-friendly speakers in place of your factory 6"x9" speakers, and their 3-way design will open a wide soundstage for all your tunes.

Tough and responsive

Kenwood uses a durable polypropylene woofer with a treated cloth surround, so the KFC-6965S speaker keeps pumping out the bass even through the harsh conditions in a car. Add a 2" PEI cone tweeter and a 1/2" ceramic supertweeter to the mix, and you'll get a smooth transition between your music's highs and lows. Grilles are included, so you can also use these speakers in a custom installation.

Good affordable speakers that faithfully reproduce the music and work well with the stock headunit in my 2017 Forester (front doors). This installation kit worked well also.

Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your speakers I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.

Thanks for your question. Top-mount Depth (Inches)3 1/16" Bottom-mount Depth (Inches)3 1/2" You'll find this information on the product page Details tab under "Specifications" Hope that helps. [ Kenny  Aug 06, 2016 ]  Staff
I bought the speakers for a 2014 GMC Sierra. But I think all newer trucks have rain shield. [ lionel  Oct 20, 2015 ]
no these went into a montero in the rear. no rain worries. but i did have to modify the hole to make them fit a little. they werent a direct fit 6x9 replacement. [ MAUNA LAKI  Oct 20, 2015 ]
Yes, always amp up your speakers. Lack of power will blow a speaker quicker than to much power. [ DALLAS  Aug 07, 2015 ]
Suprisingly, they sound much better than factory speakers even without an amp. I've had them installed for about a year with a kenwood stereo, no plans for an amp. [ HENRY  Aug 04, 2015 ]
Hard to say without knowing what "factory" sounds like. I can say this though, these were 100 times better than OEM in the 04 Impala. Even better when we matched them up to a Kenwood head unit. [ ROBERT W  Aug 04, 2015 ]
It depends on what kind of sound your listening for but the RMS of 14 watts is better than stock. I use an amp for my sound but I got two 12" sub to go with it. [ lionel  Aug 04, 2015 ]
