Our take on the Kenwood Excelon XR-1800P by Crutchfield's John Pollard
Big, big woofers
Kenwood's Excelon XR-1800P 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 don't hear 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.
Separate 1-3/16" soft dome tweeters deliver all the high-frequency details smoothly, while external crossovers 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 the woofers fit in select vehicles. Grilles are included.
Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.
The best one. Better get this. Pricey but you get sound for that price. You might need to have another amp for the speakers if you wanna get most out of it.

Please refer to the Crutchfield Car Selector to confirm fit for your vehicle.
Crossover: Each crossover has screw terminal inputs and outputs that will accommodate bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.315" wide. The output level of the tweeters is adjustable; choose 0 dB, -2 dB, or -4 dB.

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.

The Kenwood Excelon XR-1800P component speakers would perform best with an external amplifier driving them. For help selecting an appropriate amplifier, feel free to reach out to an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. [ Larry Apr 11, 2017 ] Staff
2 answers I have a 2001 MR2 Spyder with a stock sound system. I was hoping to replace the stock door speakers with these but got a "Does not fit" warning. Can you tell me which part of this speaker system does not fit? If it's the tweeters, I can cut a larger hole for them. If it's the drivers then I'll have to look for something else. Thanks.
