Our take on the Kenwood Excelon KFC-X183C by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
Upgrade to excellence
The Kenwood Excelon KFC-X183 7" speakers feature a 28% larger cone, packed into a frame that will still fit into the factory openings of many Dodge, GM, and Toyota vehicles (with some modifications). A bigger cone moves more air, so your music can have the fullness and punch you miss with most factory speakers. A diamond-array pattern etched into the cones increases their strength for improved dynamic response and lower distortion. The rubber surround resists weathering, providing reliable support that keeps your music playing, no matter what.
The 1" silk dome tweeters deliver all the high-frequency details smoothly, and special-design magnetic circuitry and powerful, lightweight magnets make these tweeters extremely accurate without sounding harsh. Kenwood includes multi-purpose and 6"x9" brackets that help these big bruisers to fit in some Dodge, GM, or Toyota vehicles. Grilles are not included; factory grilles are appropriate for most installations.
Priced per pair
Love these speakers. They brought sound back to a set of speaker boxes that I had laying around. Great sound and super easy install.

Custom Brackets: The KFC-X183C is designed as a factory replacement speaker and includes adapters compatible with many GM, Toyota, and Dodge vehicles (one bracket adapts to a 6x9 opening, the other is a multi-purpose bracket and is scored for trimming to fit several applications). Please refer to the Crutchfield Car Selector to confirm fit for your vehicle.
Woofers: The woofer cones are Carbon/Polypropylene. They are oversized for a fuller sound quality than typical factory speakers. The Carbon/Polypropylene cones and rubber surrounds are durable, designed to withstand the harsh automotive environment.
Tweeters: Each speaker has a 1" soft dome tweeter for smooth, accurate highs. The tweeters use a neodymium magnet for higher efficiency.
