Our take on the Kicker PS44

Powerful speakers for powersports vehicles

Kicker developed their PS44 4" speakers with powersports enthusiasts in mind, so they're lightweight, durable, and ideal for most motorcycles, ATVs, and marine applications. Kicker suspends the 3/4" titanium dome tweeter above the woofer, allowing the polypropylene cone to move freely for more bass. With rugged components and weather-resistant materials, these 4-ohm speakers (a 2-ohm version is also available) will last a long, long time, no matter where you use them. And your battery will last a long time too, thanks to a high-efficiency design that allows maximum volume with less current draw on your system.

Low weight, high performance

Each PS44 features a motor structure built around a powerful, yet extremely light, neodymium magnet, so they weigh in at less than 12 ounces per speaker — incredibly light for speakers with this kind of performance. That makes them ideal for motorcycles, where keeping a low center of gravity is essential. They're great for any bike, but they're a perfect fit for the fairing and rear seat cutouts on a Honda Gold Wing. They'll also fit into Kicker 4" KM-Series enclosures (sold separately), which fasten to handlebars, Bimini tops, or golf cart roof supports.

Well made product with good sound

Ok for a car maybe

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I thought that would be the best speaker for my 2002 Goldwing but it is not, the speaker sounds good but the volume was really low compared to the stock front speaker also 12" of wire is not enough to wire up anything, I wished I had of bought the Polk db 501 and a wiring harness.

Pros: Sounds good

Cons: Not enough volume

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Matched these with a Sony BT stereo, great combination for my older GL1200 Wing. can listen @ highway speeds with a helmet!

Pros: Nice look!, easy install, great sound

Cons: Cost, but worth it.

Small size=Big sound

Anonymous from Portsmouth, Ohio on 12/9/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed these in a 1972 dune buggy and didn't have much space available for the installation. Crutchfield rep talked me into these speakers due to the size and weather resistance.

Pros: Speakers aren't very deep and dont require a lot of room to mount. Being weather proof is a real plus but the sound quality is great for such a small speaker.

Cons: None


Hands-on research

Product Research


Overview: The Kicker PS4 (PowerSports Series) is designed as a drop-in replacement for the factory speakers in select Honda Gold Wing fairing and rear-seat cutouts. The weather-proof drivers can also be used in other motorcycle, ATV, marine, or outdoor applications. Kicker also makes compatible 4-inch empty bullet enclosures (item number 20640KMTES, sold separately). An adapter is included to mount the speakers in slightly larger locations (fills a 4.685" diameter opening).

Neodymium: A neodymium magnet provides approximately 10x the magnetic field strength of a standard ceramic magnet of the same weight, providing a strong motor structure with very light weight. The light speakers (approximately 11.9 ounces each) have little effect on a motorcycle's center of gravity.

Tweeter: The 3/4" neo-titanium dome tweeter is bridge-mounted, suspended over the center of the woofer cone and designed to withstand the extreme vibration encountered in the motorcycle/ATV environment.

Note: The tweeter bridge structure looks like a spoke grille and cannot be removed.

I Believe that these were designed for outdoor use such as bikes and etc. These speakers do have a good sound and plenty of power. I can hear them quite well over 1835 cc without much for mufflers I think they make mounts for motorcycles [ DEE M  Aug 25, 2015 ]
I Do not know if the four inch size of these speakers will be a direct fit in your model of bike due to not knowing about your specific cycle .....what I can say is I installed four of them paired with a 50 watt x 4 Kenwood multimedia receiver in my 85 goldwing 1200 I have ridden with multiple bikes with loud exaust.....and at 85mph and can hear the sound very well [ bradley  Aug 25, 2015 ]
i wish i had a better answer I installed these on my 87 goldwing work out for me great. good luck [ Fidel  Aug 25, 2015 ]
