Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have a 2016 ford f250 and these speakers work fantastic over stock. Crutchfield did a perfect match. Easy install, easy instructions, 20 mins and I was rocking. Thank you, Crutchfield

Pros: Easy install

Cons: None

Neither Subwoofers, nor Circles!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If you were expecting these speakers to blow out your shocks, pop your tires, and set off every car and house alarm within a three mile radius, look elsewhere. Oval speakers are not meant to produce stadium level subwoofer lows and chalkboard scraping highs, they are meant to give you a broad range of sounds so that a cramped passenger compartment can hear the tunes, too. These Kenwoods fit perfectly into my Ford, with no muss or fuss because of the adapters they came with. If you want insanely intense sound reproduction, put it in your house, not on the road.

Pros: Excellent mid-range, perfect for classical, old school rock, and country Low range is moderate and measured, as is to be expected from a 6x8 Highs aren't ridiculously pitched to the ceiling

Cons: hard to hear the passenger speakers when you spend 99% of your time in the driver's seat, but that's what audio settings are for

Great sound, extremely easy install. Purchased for my 1999 Ford Explorer to replace factory speakers. These fit exactly in the front and rear doors and made a huge difference in sound quality from my after-market head unit.

Pros: Included wiring harness made the job super easy, fit perfectly in the doors in the OEM enclosure

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These Kenwood speakers were AWESOME replacements for my wife's factory junk. They fit right in to the factory holes but delivered sound that you'd expect from a custom install! The seperate woofer n tweeter have great quality and power handling ability. I knew the Crutchfield adapters and Kenwood speakers would be just what our system needed. I recently put Kenwood plate speakers and an amp in my 2006 F250 and it was SWEET!! Thanks again Crutchfield for stepping up to the plate when it comes to an easy install anyone can accomplish!

Pros: Great price and sound

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I replaced the stock radio and speakers in my Ford Ranger with four of the Kenwood 5x7 speakers and a Kenwood KDC-BT565U stereo. The speakers are plenty loud and very clear. They won't make the car's around you rattle, but for the price, they sound great. Wiring was easy with the Crutchfield install kit.

Pros: Easy installation. Great sound. Great price.

Cons: None.

Great speakers for the price

Austin D from Maine on 5/28/2016

2010 Mazda 3
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great little speakers! I bought these to replace my very bad stock speakers in my Mazda 3 since they were starting to distort. The overall build quality is great and the weight of the speakers really show the quality. They come with everything needed for installation, including screws, 20 inches of thin speaker wire, and a good manual for my car. The only problem I had was attaching the wires to my pre-existing car, which required a special adaptor that the sales rep didn't know about. I ended up manually soldering the speaker wires onto the car wires after cutting off the adaptor. Overall it was a great upgrade and good performance for the price.

Pros: Sounds good, *simple* installation, works with the car's bass+treble tuner, clear mids.

Cons: Manual installation with soldering without my car's adaptor, clearance problems that was solved with a few washers, slightly sharp highs, and slightly muddy lows (More of a flat and mild V speaker).

Put these in a Ford Econoline. They are obviously better than stock, but I'm not super impressed. Of course, for the price, it's really hard to complain, and since they were easy to install, overall a good deal.

Pros: fair priced, upgrade over stock

Cons: fidelity is only a marginal upgrade

Sounds Great

Cheap sound

bjah from Ohio on 7/18/2015

2010 Mazda 3
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Cheap sound. Highs are not great and the mid-range sound where you here voices are muffled and compromised by the the strained bass from the woofer. I would say amplify this speaker with the maximum amount of specified wattage and use filters because i am sure running the speaker as a full range speaker will produce some distortion.

Pros: not costly and it is a direct mazda factory fit

Cons: the factory speaker produced a better sound (Highs, mid-ranges, lows) than the kenwood aftermarkets - should have went with my first mind and purchased the Polk Audio

josh from Colorado on 6/4/2015

1989 Ford Mustang
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

They came with connector wires all nice and put together "awesome" I thought and after installing them and only getting one side working I found the problem being with that wire connector not holding the wire tight. So I thought I would take it off but the bridge where it connects is so tiny it was bending pulling the connector off, and about to break. Once working, they sound about like a really loud cell phone speaker. But I did have some 7 year old Fosgate Power series I was comparing to and the one working one sounds better than these. Crutchfield should consider not selling these any longer, it's a waste of time and effort. A cheap speaker that sounds terrible is worth being proud of because it was so cheap, but a more expensive one has traditionally got a slightly better sounding speaker.

Pros: Fits in factory position

Cons: Sounds like $20 for a lot more money.

Great for the Money

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers replaced factory speakers in a 2010 Ford Ranger truck. I added a new Kenwood head unit to the truck at the same time and the sound upgrade was unbelievable. My original intent was to add additional functionality to the truck stereo (bluetooth, Sirius) but the new speakers really added punch to the system. Plan on using the same speakers when I upgrade my Jeep.

Pros: Ease of installation (thanks to Crutchfield adapters) Sound quality Price

Cons: None

2002 Ford F-250 Super Duty
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

By far this is no incredible speaker. It struggles with lows, as any oval speaker will, but the mids and highs are pretty crisp. I put these in my '02 F250 Crew Cab and they fit perfectly. Did a really good job of spiffing up the sound to a 12 year old vehicle. Next up is a single sub and we should have great sound!

Pros: Inexpensive, mids and highs are crispy

Cons: Lows are lacking

Brighter Sound

I replaced my factory Ford F150 speakers with these. I get a much brighter, fuller sound now. The old factory ones did their duty for 9 years but it was time for an update. The new Pioneers make drives much more enjoyable now.

Pros: Much better sound for the road.

Cons: None

Fit the bill.

Cons: None.

Don't bother

Glenn W from SE WI on 4/13/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Kenwood really phoned it in on this one. Just going from a single cone to a coaxial should have been more of an improvement than this. Ford did a better job on the OEM than KW did on these. Bought 2 pair and put in the rear door ones first, doubt if I'll bother putting the front pair in. I'll get better sound from a pair of Polk DB521/DXi525 5¼" ones with adapters than what these produce. Crutchfield would be better off not selling these so they won't be disappointing folks that would've gotten something else from them instead.

Pros: They fit.

Cons: "For the money" let's them off easy. If you're going to go through the effort of pulling body panels to upgrade your speakers, your ride deserves better than these.

Cons: No Cons to List!

Great overall sound

Patrick from State Center, IA on 4/6/2014

First, these sound great for what they are. Particularly, the highs are crisp and the tweeters have held up nicely over periods of long use. As with any 5x7 or 6x8 setup, you are not going to get amazing lows, as expected, but mid-level bass with these is somewhat punchy and clear. They sounded good with the factory head unit... After I paired them with a new Kenwood unit from Crutchfield, they sound much better. Mid and high-range sounds are clear and can take ever watt of volume put at them without distorting from the 22 watts RMS from the Kenwood head unit. Interestingly, mine came with adjustable/directional tweeter domes. Not sure if this was a change in the model or what (part number is the same) but they sound great. The wiring harnesses from Crutchfield are not necessary, but are a nice bonus to anyone unfamilier with speaker install or weak electrical background. I would definitely buy these again.

Pros: Crisp highs, highs do not distort at high volume, overall great sound for this size.

Cons: None

Product Research


Tweeters: Each speaker has a 1" PEI balanced dome tweeter. A semi-dome tweeter has a dome placed inside a cone. Balanced dome tweeters are semi-dome tweeters with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the tweeter. PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide) is a polymer film that produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging.

Mounting Applications: Kenwood describes this speaker as a 6x8, but it also fits many 5x7 applications. Please check the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to confirm fit.

Less than hoped for[ BRUCE  Sep 09, 2014 ]
Hi,It's not bad, but I have a convertible and I'm just listening to rock music. I have not complaints though. I don't have an amplifier hooked up to it either. Hope that helps.[ MICHAEL P.  Sep 07, 2014 ]
No, they don't have a good amount of anything the six stock single cone speakers in my E350 van sounded better. These were so horrible I sent the second pair back after installing the first pair in the back doors. No 6 x 8 will deliver truly good base, but these couldn't deliver anything decent. I ended up going with a pair of Pioneer TS-D6802R for the middle pair (very clean highs & midrange, average bass) and a pair of Kenwood KFC-X683C up front (similar sound, not quite as clean) I left the pair of KFC-C6865S in the back doors because it's an 11 passenger van and they can't insult my ears from way back there ;) [ GLENN  Sep 05, 2014 ]
I'd say the bass response is well within what I would expect from a 6x8" speaker.[ DAVID  Sep 05, 2014 ]
Better than most in their price range but nothing earthshaking. They were a nice improvement over what I did have, an off brand and I was looking for better balance rather than bass.[ David  Sep 05, 2014 ]
