Our take on the Kenwood Excelon XR-1800 by Crutchfield's John Pollard
Big, big woofers
Kenwood's Excelon XR-1800 speakers feature a huge 7" cone, 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 don't get with most factory speakers. The woofer's advanced hybrid pulp cone stays rigid through heavy workouts to cut down on distortion and keep your bass sounding tight. The rubber surround resists weathering, providing reliable support that keeps your music playing, no matter what.
The large, 1-3/16" soft 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. The bruisers handle up to 110 watts RMS, so you'll be impressed when you fire them up with a nice amp. Kenwood includes multi-purpose adapter brackets that help these big speakers fit in select vehicles. Grilles are included.
I was pleased with the choice of hardware and mounting brackets offered. You would be hard pressed not to manage to install speakers, when provided with such hardware. The speakers are bright and powerful. So far, I am pleased with them.

I don't have them fired up yet but from what I've learned about these speakers is no more than a 100 watt amp [ JEFFERY A May 05, 2015 ]
