Our take on the Kicker 41DSC54

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.

Here's the Kicker

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. 

Solid sound

The 41DSC54 5-1/4" speakers will give you clarity like you've never had with your factory speakers. The 2-way design recreates a dynamic sound, dedicating the highs to the PEI domed tweeter while sending the midrange and lows to the 5-1/4" polypropylene woofer. The 41DSC54's highly sensitive design conjures hefty volume even from low-powered factory radios, so you can crank your tunes and keep 'em blasting the whole ride.

Scooped these up on special and glad I did. You can't beat it for the value. They look great once installed. Bass could use a little help, but as a midrange speaker don't get any better

Product Research


Polypropylene Woofer Cones: The Kicker DS-series speakers feature durable polypropylene woofer cones for their rigidity and light weight. Polypropylene is also resistant to moisture and high temperature extremes found in automotive applications.

Ribbed Polyester Foam Surrounds: The ribbed polyester foam surrounds allow extended cone excursion for additional bass output and higher SPL.

1/2" PEI Balanced-dome Tweeters: The 1/2" PEI balanced-dome tweeters provide a smooth high frequency response with quick, detailed and spatially-correct imaging. PEI is an acronym for polyetherimide. The tweeters have strong neodymium magnets for higher power handling.

Kicker's DS car speakers help you get better sound in your car, even if space is tight in your doors. Their thin profile helps them fit where other speakers can't.

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you. [ Krissy  Jan 08, 2015 ]  Staff
The picture is of the same speakers. One of them just has the removable grill on it. If you order them you will get two speakers as well as two speaker grills Which are easy to put on and take of with the included screws. [ Griffin  Aug 02, 2014 ]
the speakers are the same one is just shown with the speaker grill on it [ scott  Jul 27, 2014 ]
the speaker on left is shown with the protective grille installed. if your installing behind door panel. you wont use the grille. as in my install. same speaker though. very satisfied with the sound. [ JOHN  Jul 26, 2014 ]
They are the same speaker the one is just a picture with the cover plate over the speaker [ MICHAEL  Jul 25, 2014 ]
The one on the left is shown with the trim and the one on the right is just the speaker. If you mount the behind a door panel the trim is not used. [ Gary  Jul 25, 2014 ]
In the picture, one has the cover on, the other doesn't. But both speakers are exactly the same. [ Chris  Jul 25, 2014 ]
Hi Ignacio, The pic of the speaker on the left shows it with the grill on it and the one on the right shows the speaker without the grill. If you are installing them behind a door panel in a stock location as I did in my truck you most likely will not use the grills as the panel will have a builtin grill. Hope this helps. [ Adam  Jul 25, 2014 ]
they both come with the cover as seen on the speaker on the left the one on the right is just showing it without the cover [ ALLEN  Jul 25, 2014 ]
You get 2 speakers and 2 speaker grills. The left shows the speaker covered with the grill, the right is the speaker w/o grill. I have these as the rear in my ext cab truck and with a 4 chan amp installed I'm able to separate the lows, mids and highs for a clear crisp sound. [ DANIEL  Jul 25, 2014 ]
Ignacio, these speakers are the exact same. The left shows the speaker with the included grill on, the right shows it with it off. Two grills, two speakers, and wiring is included. See the description for these details and more. [ JOHN  Jul 25, 2014 ]
The picture shows the speaker with and without the decorative grill installed. It's the same speaker it's just that the one on the right is shown without the decorative grill. [ Andrew  Jul 25, 2014 ]
It's the "grill" or cover that protects the cone from damage. Picture shows with and without, it is removable with screws and arrives not on speakers. You may have clearance for the covers sometimes you dont [ PATRICK  Jul 25, 2014 ]
Pic on the right is the speaker without the grill and left side..optional grill installed. [ JOSH  Jul 25, 2014 ]
They are the same, one has the grill on it , one does not. On my car I did not use the grills. [ JOSEPH  Jul 25, 2014 ]
These speakers are sold by the pair. If you need 4 total speakers, then you will want order 2 pair. [ Jeff  May 12, 2014 ]  Staff
