As if Kicker wasn't already stiff competition for any affordable car speaker, their DS-Series speakers once again raise the bar. In addition to providing excellent sound, these Kickers offer a thin profile that allows them to fit in more vehicles.
The 41DSC6934 6"x9" speakers will give you clarity like you've never had with your factory speakers. The 3-way design recreates a more dynamic sound by dedicating the highs to the PEI domed tweeters and the lows to the polypropylene woofer, while the 2" midrange driver delivers an extra dose of warmth and detail. The 41DSC6934's highly sensitive design conjures hefty volume even from low-powered factory radios, but these speakers will handle up to 90 watts RMS if you decide to incorporate an external amp.
Super easy installation and sound is excellent. Rich bass tones and no distortion.

Super easy installation and sound is excellent. Rich bass tones and no distortion.
These 6x9 three way speakers were the perfect upgrade for my son's Cavalier. After ordering them, we found out the car actually had the factory Monsoon system with a malfunctioned amp. We could not use the adapter for the factory harness adapter that came with the speakers. Customer Service promptly provided the alternate connection for the adapter harness. When that didn't work likely due to the original hardware problem, we ended up running new Monster cable to hook them up to the new JVC receiver. The speakers were screwed down to the metal deck rather than using the flimsy plastic factory mount with broken plastic clips. This allows these speakers to play at any volume with no rattles from the speakers or the car itself. They can handle the power cleanly and have turned the car into a solid rock box. In addition, the grilles were mounted on the rear deck covering separately from the speakers to dress up the installation further. It was not required but it makes it looks so much better with none of the factory particle board blocking the sound or view of the speakers.
Pros: These speakers make the most of the internal amp of a receiver.
Cons: None seen so far.
Amazing sound quality. Very reasonable price.
I was impressed with the detailed instructions for the vehicle and more so with the great sound of the speakers after installation. The smile on my daughters face was priceless.
Pros: Perfect fit and great sound quality for a basic upgrade from OEM speakers.
Wonderful upgrade to factory system.
My first time replacing OEM speakers in my 2007 Dodge 3500 - These fit perfectly - 4 screws - 2 spade connectors with factory matching plug to connect to the factory harness. Could not be easier! a few minutes - following step by step directions tailored for my truck. Only one minor error - The instructions say the door handle was held by a phillips screw - actually it required a #30 Torx bit. The speakers sound great! I'm happy to give this set up two-thumbs up!
Pros: Step by Step superb instructions - easy and instill confidence
Cons: Door handle on my Ram use a #30 Torx screw (Not a Phillips head as stated in instructions) Not bad - easy to follow directions!
Used these to replace factory speakers, they fit great, sound great and are a great value for the money.
Pros: Easy to install. Sound great
Purchased these as part of an entire system upgrade and they definitely pull their own weight. Excellent sound from High to Low. Very well built chassis and components.
Pros: Sound, Build quality and Price
Cons: None thus far
These are not a drop-in installation into a third-generation Dodge Ram. The speaker frame is contoured differently, so door cutting is required. Fortunately, I asked for the Scosche 6X9 to 6.5 adapter plates. Cutting out the plate leaving ~1/2" around the edges allowed the speakers clearance to the door. Also, only two of the stock mounting holes work. I had to remove the metal clips on two diagonal holes and trim the corners to drill new holes. The Kicker holes are close, but not close enough.
Pros: The Scosche adapter plate and harness adapters facilitate the install.
Cons: These speakers are underwhelming in this application (2005 Ram). It's perhaps unfair to say it's the speakers when it may be the location or the factory head unit not bringing them up to full potential. They're louder, but there's no depth to the sound. I've seen mention of some foam surround for the back of the speaker, but the Crutchfield adviser didn't mention anything about such.
Speakers sound nice but they don't exactly fit my monte the way I would like.
Pros: Sound quality
Cons: Not direct fit
He speakers are great they bring lots of boom and equality with my new radio that Crutchfield
Pros: Loud bass booms small and easy to install by yoself
Very satisfied with the output of these speakers. I was a bit surprised with the bass as well as higher tones.
Pros: Great bass and loudness
Cons: Not quite drop-in on 2000 Mazda Peotege
The speakers were listed as being direct replacements for the stock Honda rear deck speakers from a 2003 Accord Coupe, but that's not quite true. Once in place only two of the mounting bolts could be replaced in the original holes, with a third at a severe angle. The fourth wasn't even close. In addition, the trunk torsion bar rubbed against the magnet on the passenger side speaker, so back they went (which was a simple process with Crutchfield's RMA proces). Unfortunately I can't say anything about the sound quality of the speakers since they were never properly installed. Picked up a pair of Pioneer TS-A6966R speakers instead which went in without a hitch.
Love the Bass!!
Pros: Bass and loudness
Perfect, just what I needed, sounds sweet!
Sound Great in my car, although only 3 of the 4 bolts line up
Hole for speakers did no match to car.
Pros: Free shipping, great prices.
Cons: Hole for speakers did no match to car.
Bought these Kicker 41DSC6934 speakers to replace the factory rear deck speakers in my Toyota Corolla. I can't believe how much better my stereo sounds! My only regret is that I waited so long to swap them out!
Pros: Great sound
Great sound great fit
These 6X9's completely changed my audio system in my 2000 civic. Highly recommended. I will install kicker products in all my future vehicles as well
Pros: Crisp clean sound with plenty of bass you can feel. Very easy install
Great sound..... WOW
Pros: Fit in the old holes.
Cons: Took me a while to figure out that the nut plates in my car moved to match the new speakers holes.
Installed in a '91 Buick Regal rear deck. Love the sound but the speaker was slightly wider than factory speakers and wouldn't go completely into the speaker box. I was only able to fit 2 screws in the speakers. Haven't decided on a solution yet mostly because I don't want to cut into the carpet on the deck.
Pros: good sound and easy to hook up.
Cons: too wide to fit completely into speaker enclosure.
Easy install. Great sound. Really impressed and can't beat the price
Pros: Puts out a great sound. Almost sounds like I have a built stereo system.
I love these speakers, they sound loud and clear.
Pros: Easy to install. Great quality speakers for a good price.
Put in rear deck of 90 Acura Integra. Had to be very careful and bend the speaker terminals back towards the speaker magnet to prevent them from hitting the metal deck.
Pros: Sound a lot better than the rotted out original speakers
Cons: Just had to be careful and not let the speaker terminals come in contact with the metal deck.
I paired these up with the Kicker DSC674 in the doors. Even with the stock head unit (2011 Corolla S - Non JBL 6-speaker system) there is a noticeable increase in sound quality, volume, and even a little baby "thump" from the bass. Definitely worth the time and money though, when compared to the stock JUNK speakers. This was not a dramatic change at all so don't expect much with the stock HU. Did have to do some drilling to mount these and I used my own sheet metal screws instead of the clips that came with them (not a big fan at all of the clips). Total install time was 2 hours. I have a Kenwood DDX372BT on the way and will update this post later.
Pros: Decent price for decent speakers. Arrived on time as promised along with the Crutchfield supplied wiring harness and mounting instructions which were very helpful for the disassembly/reassembly of the vehicle plastics. Sound quality & volume is an improvement over stock speakers.
Cons: Had to drill and get a little creative for the install. Mounting instructions from Crutchfield give very little guidance on how to actually mount the speakers other than to say mount speakers using hardware that was supplied by manufacturer. But the holes do not line up so expect to do some drilling and troubleshooting.
These are great sounding 3-way speakers.
Pros: Great clarity, good bass and midrange
Dropped these into my 2007 Dodge 1500 after my driver's side speaker started crackling out. As always, buying from crutchfield was great. Found these that fit, excellent price, super quick shipping, and all the extras that make install a breeze. The included wiring harness adapters work great, and the speakers sound fantastic versus the stock speakers. Will have to update the rears in the future now as well. :)
Pros: Performance, price, ease of installation.
Cons: None that I can think of.
Great speaker, Great sound. Kicker never disappoints. Sounds great with my system.
Pros: Powerful Sound, Clear. Good price point.
I was looking for a set of 6x9's for my Blazer. Something durable but didn't want to sacrifice sound quality. And price being my major factor in choosing. I'll have to say that for the price these speakers are a solid choice. I'm very pleased with the sound & dynamic range. It seems to me that the more power you throw at these things, the better they sound!
Pros: Durable construction Sound quality Value for price
I really enjoyed these speakers! They are definitely worthy for the amount of money they cost. Since they are three-way co-axles they have a wide range of sound variety between the tweeters, mid-ranges and woofers. I installed these 6"x9" in my '08 Milan's rear deck and they are crystal clear, but they definitely don't provide as much bass as I would like. Although, there's not that much bass since there's only a woofer, they're still great speakers, that have high quality sound and are definitely worth all that you pay!
Pros: 3-way Crystal clear sound Great range Nice look Balanced Low cost
Cons: Bass is limited J-clips are crappy
Initially, I couldn't believe that the original speakers were 6X9, but they were. I was looking to replace the stock speakers since they were blown, and really just looking for a low priced speaker. I got way more than I bargined for. These speakers sound great!! The tweeters really handle the highs and overall these sound significantly better that the original speakers. I know that may sound kind of like a no brainer, but again, I was just looking for inexpensive and I got so much more. You will not be disappointed with these speakers.
Pros: Great sound, easy install
Very clear speakers.
WOW!!! These speakers are AMAZING!! I have a 1992 Buick Regal Custom, and the partially blown stock speakers were just atrocious. Purchased these bad boys for the rear deck and they SLAM with just the stock radio!!! Incredibly clear, too! Can't wait to get the aftermarket head unit put in... Fit in the Buick with some minor alterations made...by a drill.. much to my dismay, but returning is a huge pain in the butt, so I made them fit. 10/10 would definitely buy again! Wish I could somehow mount some more on the front dash, then I could have 4 of these. My car would ROCK! Make sure you are well aware of your cars mounting depths before purchasing as these things are MONSTERS
Pros: Incredible incredible bass! Still crystal clear sound while slamming, no distortion!
Cons: None yet!
10 minute changeout. Replaced my non working factory speakers. Great improvement.
These speakers are great. they hit pretty hard with an amp for relatively low watt speakers and the bass is great for 6x9's. they hit harder than my 10
I bought these to replace the stock speakers in my 03 malibu, they work great. The only problem I have is these are "thicker", as in taller, than the stock speakers. And since GM cut the speaker holes in the rear deck "about" where the speakers are, they barely fit. I had to remove the plastic grill pieces that are in the rear deck, so that the speakers could pop through. Looks great though.
Pros: Great sound Good price
Cons: some modification required only two of four screw holes for mount line up to stock
Was pleasantly surprised at the sound quality of these 6×9's. No they are not some super high end speakers but for the cost they are amazing. Have very solid lows and can create some very nice clean highs with some eq tuning. A big step up from stock speakers. Would buy again....actually thinking of getting another set for the rear doors.
Pros: Solid sound nice range and solid bass.
Cons: None found yet.
I used these to replace the front door woofers in my 2008 Ram 1500. I know it voided the speaker warranty, but since the factory amp only puts bass into the front door speakers, I unscrewed the tweeter assembly, filled the through hole with epoxy, and installed dust caps where the tweeter assembly was. Nice difference over the factory speakers. Not more bass but deeper and clearer bass.
Pros: Easy to install
Bought these for the rear deck of 2001 Buick Century. Great upgrade over factory speakers. Sounds great
Pros: Great sound
Good materials for the price.
Pros: Good materials.
Shipping was quick. Speakers fit with a small modification and sound way better than the stock speakers
Pros: Sound great
While replacing dry rotted speaker grills it seemed a shame to remove the rear deck & not replace the paper factory speakers while we were in there. I did minimal research just by checking for inexpensive, compatible speakers on Crutchfield's site. Since everything was "modified fit," I called the sales department for a recommendation. Based on the initial recommendation of these Kickers, I did a little more research by comparing similar priced speakers. I called again to ask why these over this other brand & the second salesperson had the same thoughts as the initial person. Since the mounting surface wasn't truly flush I used some weather stripping as a seating gasket, made a template, drilled the holes and had to buy different screws (or washers) to keep the heads from slipping thru the mounting holes in the speakers since we weren't using the speaker grilles. The sound is a vast improvement over the paper cones, though with out changing out all the speakers and/or adding an amp, the audio improvement is not overwhelming.
Pros: Great build quality and materials. Crutchfield's "master data sheet" & compatible speaker plug wires are a great help.
Cons: Seems like a small thing for a company like Crutchfield to produce a mounting adapter that would seat aftermarket speakers properly in the original hole using the original factory mount bolts.
Very nice sound
Pros: Easy installation
Purchased to replace the factory speakers in my corolla. Honestly anything is better than what was taken out. These speakers work well and sound great
Have a '02 Saab with shredded OEM speakers. These speakers install easily and sound much much better. Good value.
Pros: Excellent fit
Cons: Could have used longer wiring to splice onto OEM wiring
Great pair to replace the dry-rotted factory speakers! Excellent sound regardless of genre I'm listening to. I have FM/Cassette head and a trunk-mounted CD changer. Fabulous sound reproduction from any of these sources, too!! What a step UP at a great price. Thanks to the Crutchfield Rep who recommended these speakers! I thank you and my ears thank you!
Pros: Easy install, great value for the money, and nice sound!
Cons: None... nada... zip... zilch!
Decent sound for the money but not going to blow you away still much better than stock.
Pros: Decent Sound
Cons: Lack any real punch to sound.
Bought these once and car was totalled, so I bought another set for new car. These are the best sounding 6X9's I have ever owned. Not tinny, good high range, good low range, very loud on limited power.
Pros: Great sound, low price
Cons: none that I have discovered
High quality and great sound. The sound was very clear with good treble and the bass was solid but not too boomy. Well worth the money and was a huge upgrade from my factory rear speakers.
Pros: Great price Fantastic sound
Decided to upgrade the factory speakers in my son's car. The Kickers sound awesome, brilliant sound separation and quality. Easy to install with provided directions and wiring harness.
Pros: Sound fantastic.
Cons: Did not offer wiring harness for rear speaker replacement.
Excellent speaker for the price, very clean sound. Put them into a 2004 Malibu, and they sound very good, with the large trunk giving them good bass feedback. would recommend these for anyone who wants a good 6X9 but does not want to spend a lot of money.
Great product for the price. They are compose like a high end 6x9 speaker with a low price. Sound amazing.
Pros: -Low price -great looking product
Cons: -No drill template
these speakers sound absolutely amazing. excellent bass response even at low volumes, crystal clear ( no exaggeration ) sound from mids and tweets, i hear things in my music that i haven't heard before, background sounds that were unnoticeable before are now evident and clear. I installed these in the front doors of my 2008 toyota tundra, they technically aren't supposed to fit, and normally they wouldn't, but if you have some ingenuity, the right tools, and the bravery to do a few modifications, you can make them work, and in my opinion a 6 1/2 round speaker can't come close to touching the sound quality of a 6x9. if you have a tundra and you want these, what you want to do is to cut the original paper skeaker out of the housing with a razor blade, cut the plastic reinforcement beams out of the back with a hot knife or other tool that will do the job without breaking the plastic, and use the original housing to mount the new speaker to. you will have to make some small brackets to secure the speaker to the housing and remove some of the honeycomb plastic material on the door panel where the speaker will sit as the new ones will stick out an additional 1/4 inch, but you will be extremely happy with the sound quality if you can accomplish installing these.
Pros: excellent sound, high power handling, crystal clear and excellent bass response, even at low volumes. excellent value.
Cons: absolutely nothing
Great aftermarket speaker. They could handle everything my 500w amp pushed. Crystal clear with the volume cranked.
The speakers fit great in the XG350. Only problem i had was, it was supposed to come with a wiring diagram. Did not. original speaker replaced had 4 wires set for bass and set for treble. The kicker only had one terminal to run wires. So i am not getting full use of speakers ,running the treble side. If Speakers order are supposed to be compatible to replacement one figure that wiring would be in the equation not only size of speaker.
Cons:Crutchfield response on 6/1/2015 We're sorry to hear that you had some difficulty with the installation. We send out the vehicle-specific installation instructions ahead of the order (as an attachment to your shipping confirmation email) so that you can familiarize yourself with the installation requirements before receiving your order. We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
Good all around speaker
These speakers dropped right in no problems at all, the sound difference from stock to these Kickers was the best thing for my sound system.
Pros: Very easy to install, with great support if needed.
Purchased these for my teenage son. They sound good and he hasn't blown them out.
Pros: Good value
These speakers sound great in my 2004 Mini Cooper. Way better than the factory speakers. My first time installing speakers in a car and it only took about 40 minutes. Only problem is, now I want to replace my front speakers too.
Pros: Sounds good, easy install
Good bass response and clear sounds
Pros: Easy install and has the wire hookup pigtails.
Good sound n quality
I replaced factory 6" speakers to get a little more bass and they delivered. I had to modify my door panels to do it, but well with it.
Pros: Very impressive bass over factory speakers. 3-way speaker gives fantastic sound quality.
Cons: None yet
These are great for upgrading your factory speakers. They sound good with just your receiver powering them so you don't have to add an amp. However they can handle more power and sound even better if you want to add an amp. I added a 4 channel amp and have 175watts RMS going to each speaker and the sound is awesome! I Highly recommend these KICKER speakers if you looking for a lot of sound for not a lot of money.
Pros: Easy to install, sound quality is good with low or high wattage. Well made and high quality.
Cons: Nothing to complain about. They're awesome
Definitely worth the money paid, I put them in my 01 Camry instead of the stock speakers along with front speakers and a 12" sub. All sounds great! Would definitely recommend anything made by Kicker.
Pros: Sounds great. Sort of Inexpensive.
Cons: Hard to put in.
Great upgrade from factory standard, good value
Installed these in my 2002 Ram 1500 and it only took 20 min. Very easy to do and they sound great. I would recommend then as a factory replacement speaker to make the factory radio sound better.
Pros: Great sound and easy to install.
I just upgraded my factory Honda 6x9's with the Kicker 41DSC6934 6x9's. Installation was very easy and the included connectors made hooking up to the factory connectors super fast. Speakers sound great and have a lot of bass. Very pleased with this purchase.
Pros: Great sound, easy installation, included connector for honda specific hookup.
Cons: None so far.
Installed these in about 15 minutes in my son's 03 ram. Great sound, great fit.
These speakers deliver good bass at factory receiver power levels, just as my Crutchfield advisor said they would.
Pros: Softer than usual foam/rubber connects the speaker cone to the speaker frame. This promotes greater speaker cone movement at lower factory power levels. So, it doesn't take a lot of power to make the cone move, which makes the speaker produce good bass with the factory setup.
Cons: The only con to these speakers in my installation was the fact that the factory speakers they replaced were actually 2 ohm speakers. I was told that this would slightly lower the available power to them from the factory amplifier. I cannot help but wonder if these speakers were the same 2 ohm rating as the factory speakers, if you could tell a noticeable difference. No way to tell unless I take my car back apart and step up to some higher priced speakers, like the Infinity X Ref. or similar.
These are great speakers on paper. Unfortunately they are not packaged well and tend to break in shipping. If you manage to fix them they need foam surround on the back of the 6x9 driver's install surface or they tend to vibrate around horribly in stock interior trim. Good luck hearing all that bass over the rattles - but there is a TON of bass and crystal clear mids and highs to go with it. Kicker did a great job of tuning this driver and its capacitors on the highs - it is not pitchy at all. VERY flat and true response. Works best with higher than average power head units like Kenwood or a aftermarket amplifier.
Pros: Not pitchy at all. VERY flat and true response. You probably won't bother with a subwoofer if you install these correctly - they hit very hard for their size if you want them to.
Cons: Poor packaging means potential but fixable damage. They are deeper than stock speakers so watch the mounting depth. They work with deck power but like far more power much better.
I bought a pair of these and a pair of four inch kicker speakers and with out amplification it was terrible sending but when i hooked up a 600 watt amp it sounds amazing.
Pros: solid speakers
Cons: without amp it was disappointing no bass what so ever
I just replaced my Chrysler 200 door speakers with the kicker 6 by 9's. I am not disappointed with the sound at all. I am running these off my factory radio and wow. I did not need to modify anything. No cutting like the they said I would have too. I just dropped them in and now enjoying better sound. I have 6 by 9's in the rear (sound ordinances) so everything sounds fine.
Pros: I am pleased with my speakers. Sounds wonderful.
I put these in the rear deck of my 2007 Chevy Cobalt after the stock had blown out. They fit perfectly with the included brackets. much better than stock, and the bass come out really clean with that muddy sound. These Kickers really brought the speakers back to kicking. Being powered only by the factory amp is plenty. I highly recommend them
Pros: Good sound, clean, no echo's, good price for quality
a good speaker for the price. I was a little disappointed that it was not a perfect fit. three out of four bolts fit with no issue but could not get the fourth bolt in easily. I would buy them again if needed
Pros: I like the way the wiring harness that crutchfield supplied pluged right in and the sound is very clear with my Pioneer receiver
I installed Kicker 41dsc6934 speakers in my 2003 Dodge Ran 1500st today, easy as easy can be. Wish I had gotten them years ago. Awesome mids and highs, have a RF powered sub for the bass. Running them off Kenwood HU. All the noise a 64 year old rock fanatic could want. Can't wait to get a amplifier.
Pros: Easy hookup great sound.
Cons: Kickers have no cons.
Installed these on a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 Lonestar...Very Pleased with these speakers overall at this point, only had them installed for three days at this point. For any Dodge Ram owner who doesn't have the factory 6x9's in the front doors already be sure to buy the factory speaker base(-Mopar factory Part # 56040860ac) from the dealer, mine only charged 7 bucks a piece and picked them up the next day. Once you have this speaker base/bracket it makes install a breeze.
Pros: Sky is the limit
Cons: Make you sure have the factory speaker bracket/base-Mopar factory Part # 56040860ac
Very good sounding speakers. Hate that I waited this long to replace the crappy factory speakers in my truck. Sound amazing with the factory stereo!
Pros: Simple to install. Easy to enjoy clean, clear sound!
Fine shipment, Quality packing. Fits my 2013 Mini Clubman perfectly. Had to make my own speaker adapters (for the connectors). Sound is very, very good. Far, FAR better than the stock speakers.
Pros: Price, Value, Sound Quality
I installed these in the front doors of my 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 Quad Cab. Very noticeable improvement over the anemic stockers. These are being ran off a Pioneer Avic X930-BT head unit, and the sound quality was a huge improvement over the stock speakers. Crisp highs and decent bass for a 3 way speaker on only head unit power. I like these so much I plan on purchasing some of the same series for the rear doors.
Pros: Huge improvement over stock speakers Excellent quality at a very reasonable price
Cons: None that I can think of
Great replacements for my originals
Good sounds for good price. Easy install. I only needed mounting brackets I found from another retailer.
Ok speakers for the price. Mid and highs are great. Not enough bass.
Pros: Clear sound. Good mid and high ranges.
Cons: Not deep enough bass.
Installed a complete set of the kicker speakers in my 2002 Saab and wow what a difference, great bass using just the stock receiver.
Pros: Great Bass response and clarity
Excellent sound and definition and a great value. Perfect replacement for the GM rear speakers in my daughter's car.
Pros: Great sound, excellent price
Cons: Could have better covers for increased protection.
Wow, I replaced the factory speaker with the 6x9 kicker and the sound that they put out is awesome!!
Pros: Price, easy mounting, all pros.
Cons: No cons.
Easy to install nice sound
These are really nice speakers. When I got my truck I was very unimpressed by the stock sound I was getting. I finally replaced them with these and was so happy I went ahead and got the 6.5" version for the back doors as well. The highs and mids are good, and bass isn't bad. I had to turn the bass level up over stock but the sound is very good once I tuned it. (stock I kept the bass around -4, new speakers I have the bass at +1) They probably sound even better with more power, but I am happy with the way they sound with the stock head unit for now. The install was very simple and the magnets and quality of these speakers compared to stock is as noticeable as the sound difference. Massive difference over stock. I will upgrade the head unit next.
Pros: Much better over stock, sound and build quality
Cons: None for the price
Great sound quality pretty loud good price
Pros: Direct fit for my vehicle great sound
these are awesome, look and sound fantastik and they are Kickers!
Pros: Love the grill design!
So much better than the stock speakers!!
Love it, simple to install.
Pros: Perfect fit, sounds great
These speakers are fantastic for the price. The highs and lows are clear and the sound quality is great. Really great speakers for the price. Also, want to thank Crutchfield for their help sending the right wiring harness to fit the car.
Pros: Great sound with affordability.
2005 Ram Quad-cab.... Perfect fit at the right price, sounds great with my Kenwood receiver.
Pros: Sound, price, fit
Cons: None yet
Bought a set of these with some matching front speakers and a head unit as a gift for my daughter. Very, very pleased with the quality and more importantly the sound coming from these speakers. What a great product for the money!!!!
Pros: Sound, fit, quality, look, sound, sound, sound
Cons: It wasn't for me personally, but some people may not want to cut and solder the pigtail that is included. Not 100% plug n play, but I always solder my connections and don't use butt connectors.
ADDED TO MY 2010 TOYOTA COROLLA REAR DECK THE SOUND DIFFERENCE WAS UNBELIEVABLE , LOVE THESE SPEAKERS
Pros: QUALITY MATERIALS EXCELLENT SOUND
Cons: DOES NOT FIT ANY MOUNTING HOLES ON REAR DECK OF 2010 TOYOTA COROLLA AS DESCRIBED WHEN PURCHASED, YOU MUST DRILL YOUR OWN HOLES AND HAVE YOUR OWN MOUNTING HARDWARE , INSTALLATION NOT FOR A NOVICE.
For the price these are a great upgrade over factory speakers. They fit differently from what the master sheet showed but it wasn't a big problem. If you want amazing sound you'll need to spend more money.
Pros: Sound quality, price
These were a tight fit in my cobalt. A little bigger than stock. They handle bsss pretty good and are pretty clear. At high volume s, though, the have just a little crackle to them. Just enough to notice. Still a very good upgrade.
Pros: Sound clarity bass is good cheaper than most
Cons: Mountin Screws are crap crackle slightly at high volume
I've never been a huge Kicker fan and these won't change that. They're nearly the right size for my '03 Dodge Ram 2500, but not exactly. I'm most disappointed with the sound, frankly. The paper factory speakers put out a lot of thump. I expected these to at least match the factory sound. They don't. They're just OK. I'll stick with them but they're definitely not what I'd hoped.
Pros: They almost fit. They do produce sound.
Cons: They don't fit exactly. Very little bass.
Sound good for a cheap speaker.
Pros: Sound good. Installation was easy
The speakers replaced rear factory speakers in a 1997 Crown Victoria. I was skeptical that it would make a difference in sound quality. I was completely wrong. After I installed these I was listening to NPR news on the way to work and they had the normal background environment noises in the news piece. At one point I was startled because I thought a sound came from outside my car -- it was so real. Music quality was obviously great. It was so good I could not tell where the sharper highs and extra base were coming from. Do I skip replacing the front speakers because it sounds good already? Nope--I learned my lesson. It's definitely worth replacing factory speakers if you care at all about audio quality. Again, Crutchfield made it easy. Easy to buy, they included the adapter cables for free, installation hints were good, and they shipped it quickly.
Pros: Awesome sound quality. Easy replacement installation.
Sound is better then stock.. there is a way to keep stock amp and stereo deck as well.. just have to be smarter then most when it comes to electrical items in cars. over all good price for speakers and the sound quality. will still end up putting an amp and sub in when time allows for it.
Pros: sound quality is way better then the stock and the bass with the stock amp is good as well.
Cons: speaker must be modified,which will end factory warranty.. this is also in a 2006 Monte Carlo SS Special Edition w/ 5.3L V8. rear stock amp.
Nice full crisp sound
Pros: Quality product
Installed in 1998 Buick Regal - rear deck, exact fit factory replacement. These sound a lot better than I expected. They seem to really shine with Pop, Rock, and Metal, producing distortion free kick drum bass notes that vibrate the rear view mirror while maintaining a clean mid and high range sound stage. They do get a little muddy when driven really hard with bass heavy music (EDM, Rap, HipHop, etc), but that's not surprising and should be expected. Mine are paired with the matching Kicker 41DSC54 5.25" shallow mount speakers, being driven by a 50w max x4 head unit. It sounds better in the cabin than I could have expected. For the money, I am very happy with my purchase.
Pros: Good price Great sound Great frequency response / range
Bought these for my daughter's 2003 Toyota Camry. They sound great. And easy to install
Pros: Great Sound
Cons: Had to use the Toyota speaker grills
Very satisfied. Amazing sound quality for the price. Installation couldn't have been easier especially with the instructions and wiring adapters provided by Crutchfield.
Just installed these kicker speakers into my 06 Cobalt Ls. Overall, I am satisfied with the performance of the speakers. The Crutchfield site told me the speakers would fit, come to find out the holes do not match up properly. I am now stuck with 2 replacement screws for each speaker in place of the original screws. This is not the worst thing that could of happened, but it is an issue because they are not properly secured. My rate for this whole process is a 3 because they DO NOT FIT but my rating for these evenly priced speakers is a good 4 1/2 out of 5. It would be greatly appreciated if someone can take a few minutes to read this and possibly contact me an idea of how to go about this problem. Don't know if you can comment on my review or how that works but thanks for your time
Pros: Good sound/performance
Cons: Does not fit properly (06chevycobalt2door)Crutchfield response on 10/7/2014 Our Tech Support Team reached out to Joe as soon as we saw his review. Occasionally, there are minor differences in screw hole patterns and sizes that can cause mounting issues. Our Tech guys will get more details from him and offer any advice they can. The worst case scenario is to drill a couple of new screw holes, but it might not come to that.
Speakers installed easily and sound great. More than I needed, but glad I got these. Great power, no distortion, clear highs and surprisingly deep lows
The sound is better than I expected.
Pros: Easy install, great look, awesome sound
Love the sound! They replaced some broken down Infinity Kappa 6x9's. They are a perfect fit! I gave 5 stars because of the sound. Included mounting hardware deserves 0 stars.
Pros: Great bass and treble response. So not distort with my Alpine head unit.
Cons: Speaker mounting hardware was terrible. The spring steel breaks and ate the threads of the screws. I had to use to old mounting hardware from the Infinity set.
Pros: These speakers kick but at an awesome price.
Bought for a 2004 Buick Century, according to Crutchfield they were a direct replacement for the factory speakers. They weren't. Only three of the mounting holes int the speaker lined up with the factory adapters. Three will work, but a fourth mounting point would have made me feel better about the purchase.
Pros: Sound great.
Cons: Not an exact fit.
Easy to install and fit with only minor modification
Pros: Sounds are great , the cost was hard to beat
Love love love. Replace my alpines for these
Cons: None at all
awesome speakers at a great price
Pros: good looking and sounding speaker
Beautiful sound quality! Very satisfied!
These speakers made my sound system sound much better crisp bass. The Bose system came to life.
Pros: Great sound a fit
Cons: Not the essayist install
Big upgrade from my old cheap factory camry speakers that were so bad the covers disintegrated.
Pros: Good sound for the money.
Cons: Had to make my own mounting stuff for my toyota camry. No big deal just cut out old speakers from frame and used it to install.
Couldn't use the Stock amp in my 02 Sunfire to get good sound out of these babies, because the amp has a built in cross over that only gives you tweeter or woofer sounds, but directly connected to the deck, they sound much better and perhaps amplified they will be amazing.
Pros: Great sound Great price Look amazing
Cons: Not a lot of bass (perhaps they need a back box) Wish they had separate wires to the speaker and tweeter
Good quality for the price. Nice bass. Installed on my 2000 Honda Accord. Took a while but wasn't too hard.
Pros: Good quality for the price, nice bass
I have these in the rear deck of my car. The sound quality is above average, with punchy mid bass and crisp highs. The speakers can handle around 90-100 watts, and this is the main reason I chose Kicker. Four-channel amps. nowadays can push over 100 RMS to speakers, so this pair works well and pleases the ears.
Pros: Quality design. Medium power handling, but can pushed and won't distort. Fits nicely in factory mount.
Cons: For a 6x9, the speakers should be able to handle more than 90 watts RMS.
These kickers do "Kick" the bass, but do not have the solid loud deep bass that I was hoping for, So I ended up buying a subwoofer anyways. They are excellent for a start though. The tweeters in them make a HUGE difference for your mids and highs. They will kick out and hit you almost as hard as the bass would, both in which "hit" pretty hard.
Pros: Kicks the bass kicks the highs The tweeters really bring out the highs and lows better than something without a tweeter. They make it crisp and clean. Good for their value
Cons: There is SOME distortion at higher volumes (within 5-10 points of max volume), but it can be easily overlooked. Needs louder low end
This product was better than I expected for the low cost I paid. I was looking for speakers for my car at a low cost and bought these. When they arrived and I hooked them up to my car I was surprised at how nice they sounded.
Pros: Terrific bass, no static sound, very loud
Installed these in my Son's 2008 Chevy Cobalt & they are a perfect fit! I am a big JL Audio fan, but these speakers took me by surprise! The mids & highs are very clear & the bass was better than expected for only being pushed by the factory head unit! I haven't purchased any Kicker products since the 80's, but I am very satisfied with these entry level speakers.
Pros: Nice blend of mids & highs with a little punch of bass to go with it. Easy to install in '08 Cobalt.
Easy to install and great sound improvement over factory speakers in impala.
I bought these for a Father's day gift for my husband to replace the OE speakers in his 2004 Dodge Ram pick up. He loves the speakers, comments on them frequently, and said they were super easy to install. Crutchfield is fantastic about helping with selection and answering technical questions. Very happy with this purchase!
Speakers sound good. Were super easy to install with provided instructions. Overall they sound good although sometimes I think they lean a little on the high side. Could use a subwoofer to round out the system.
Pros: Sound good. Fit my dodge ram perfect.
Cons: Need more bottom end.
I just got done installing these into my X Terra. They take a little to install due to them not lining up to factory holes. But I was able to get them to fit. WOW what a improvement over 14 year old stock speakers. My daughter who is into must was very impressed with the sound. I cant wait to order the front ones for my truck.
Pros: Great sound and value for the price
Great sound for the price, thumps very well
Pros: Easy swap, great price, good sound quality
great price for amazing speakers, crisp clear and clean sound plus a great look
Pros: great sound, good price
I replaced the factory speakers with Kicker DSC693 speakers and kept the factory head unit. The sound was 10 times better than the factory set. Definitely would recommend it for anyone who is looking for a great bargain. 2006 Dodge Ram 1500.
Cons: None to speak of.
Great sounding speakers! have great bass and mids and highs..
Pros: They fit perfect in my 2006 Dodge stratus back deck.
Cons: None at all
Glad I made the investment in these Kicker DSC693 6x9's. My system sounds great with the addition of these speakers along with my Kenwood Head Unit. My music sounds so much clear now and these Kickers delivery some pretty tight bass, something that those OEM speakers just weren't doing. As usual installation was easy and simple with all the great instructions and extras that Crutchfield provides. It was a little work just to get to the speakers, but I guess that's an Oldsmobile thing, but the MasterSheet made the install easy. Overall I'm very pleased with the Kicker DSC693 speakers, and now enjoy driving my car again.
Pros: Easy install, speakers sound great and deliver pretty tight bass.

From a stock deck eh. I would definitely think about connecting to at least a 40x2 if you really want to get good performance some what out of them unfortunately[ RONALD May 05, 2016 ]
I have the 6X9 DS series in a 91 Blazer using just a Sony head for power 50W and they sound great.[ Matthew Jul 24, 2015 ]

These speakers KICK @$$!!! well worth the money![ WILLIAM Mar 28, 2015 ]
The Bass is great they hit pretty hard for a 6x9 and the mid and twitter do there job also I am pushing them and kicker 6 3/4 in the front door with a 800 watt amp with the gain half way up without the speaker bottoming out I will tell you to buy them you won't be sorry![ MICHAEL ANTHONY Mar 27, 2015 ]
Depending on what stereo you have the Kicker will deliver a lot of bass. Now on the loudness. They deliver. My ears are still ringing.[ Christian Mar 26, 2015 ]
They are entry level factory replacements. Decent for that purpose; but if you want bass you are looking at subs and separates.[ James Mar 25, 2015 ]
I mounted mine as free air but either way would most likely work fine[ DARIN Jun 12, 2014 ]
Haven't tried with baffles. If anything I was explained the baffles help to insulate the speaker from the elements. I newer vehicles this is something to worry less about.[ Cram Jun 09, 2014 ]
I use them in the rear deck of my 06 dodge stratus. it has a enclosure around the speakers. i wouldn't use a baffles that would reduce the base you got from the kickers i would think.[ MICHAEL ANTHONY Jun 08, 2014 ]
Baffles. Designed as own replacements.[ James Jun 08, 2014 ]
