Overview

Our take on the Kenwood Excelon KFC-XP184C

The Kenwood Excelon KFC-X184C component speaker system features a huge 7" woofer, packed into a frame that will still fit into the factory openings of many Dodge, GM, and Toyota vehicles (some cars may require slight 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 cone increases its strength for improved dynamic response and lower distortion. The rubber surround resists weathering, providing reliable support that keeps your music playing, no matter what.

Big, big woofers

Sweet sound from silk tweeters

The separate 1" silk dome tweeters deliver all the high-frequency details smoothly, while special-design circuitry and powerful, lightweight magnets make these tweeters extremely accurate without sounding harsh. Kenwood includes multi-purpose adapter brackets that help the oversized woofers to fit in some Dodge, GM, or Toyota vehicles. Grilles are not included; factory grilles are appropriate for most installations.

Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

Sound great, and fit great.

Features

Woofers: The woofers 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.

Custom Brackets: The KFC-XP184C woofer 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.

Tweeter Mounting Options: The tweeters can be flush mounted using the supplied housings and metal retaining-clips. Once installed the tweeters can pivot in the housing, so their angle can be adjusted to obtain a better soundstage. The tweeters can also be top or bottom mounted in a factory tweeter location using the included OEM brackets. The tweeters cannot pivot when installed in the OEM brackets. Once mounted in the appropriate housing, the tweeters have these dimensions:

  Flush Mount Factory Top Mount (remove bottom mount flanges) Factory Bottom Mount (remove top mount flanges)
Mounting Depth 1.25" 0.58" (screw depth) 1.125"
Mounting Height 0.721" 0.893" 0"
Cutout Diameter 1.76" N/A N/A
Frame Diameter 2.084" 1.691" 1.691"
Frame Width (w/flange) N/A 2.675" 2.675"

Crossover Network: The system features low-pass crossovers wired to the woofer terminals and attached to the speaker baskets. A high-pass crossover is integrated into each included tweeter wire. The input end of the tweeter wire (female quick slides) attaches the the woofer terminal in parallel with its input. The output end of the tweeter wire (one male and one female quick slide) mates to the wire attached to the tweeter.

Warranty Note: Although the information included with these speakers indicates a 1-year warranty, they are actually covered by the Kenwood eXcelon 2-year warranty.

For component systems we typically recommend using an aftermarket amplifier for power. Component speakers like these are typically a little too power hungry for factory systems. [ Jeff  Dec 03, 2014 ]  Staff
