Our take on the Kenwood KFC- 6985PS

6x9 4-way speakers

Four drivers is a good thing

Kenwood's Performance Series speakers use a multi-driver design to give you articulate lows, clean vocals, and startling highs. That's a lot of sonic bang for your buck.

A whole new speaker

The KFC-6985PS 6"x9" speakers feature a water-resistant paper cone woofer with a new radial rib pattern, which increases speaker strength and delivers more responsive bass. The addition of a urethane surround ensures a new level of overall durability, so you'll be enjoying that fresh-from-the-box sound for years.

All the finer musical details are handled by the 2-3/4" paper cone midrange driver, 13/16" PET balanced dome tweete, and 1/2" PET dome supertweeter. Kenwood engineered a smoother listening experience with the Acoustic Sound Harmonizer, which uses slots on the mount housing the midrange, tweeter, and supertweeter to improve the progression into the higher frequencies. Grilles are included for custom installations.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've continued to do my research for up grading my whole sound system in my 2012 Sentra.. Crutchfield has been great in every aspect with customer service shipping returns etc. These speakers Deliver quality crisp clear solid sound with great bass & no distortion.. I was told they wouldn't fit in my front doors.. After ordering the Retro Sound 6x9's I found out the day of getting the front door retro sounds Installed that the KENWOOD's did fit... so I chose to put the 5way KENWOOD 6x9 in my front doors... Gotta say .... The sound quality with the rear deck and these now up front is insaine... It pounds with super crisp sound and very tight solid bass... The price point is perfect very inexpensive and amazing quality... Highly recommended Thank you again Crutchfield!

I already had a Kardon system in my vehicle and I was amazed at the quality of sound these speakers added.

Great Sounding

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sounds great in the front doors teamed with Kenwood Excelon KDC-X597 and another pair of Kenwood 6.5" 3 ways in the back doors of a Dodge Quad Cab. You will have to remove door panels and using the pattern cut with a skill saw, drill a couple holes and use longer screws...but it is fairly easy, just take your time.

Pros: High quality sound.

Cons: none

The speakers are rated at 600 watts peak each. However, keep in mind that this is peak power, and the important number to look at when matching up amps and such is the RMS power - which is 115 watts per speaker with this set. [ Jeff  Sep 24, 2015 ]  Staff
Doesn't really matter , mine blew out on a factory non-amped radio 1yr after purchase. They are crap [ DORIEN E  Sep 24, 2015 ]
