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 41DSC674 6-3/4" 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 6-3/4" polypropylene woofer. The 41DSC674'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. Grilles included.

east to install sounds very good
Pros: great sounding
Had a rep at Crutchfield help me pick these out for my 2006 Chevy 2500 Sierra. Mounting was very easy. I never installed speakers before... The harness They supplies was perfect I will definitely buy from them again as well as Kicker speakers.
Pros: Priced right. Easy install. Sound great.
For the price, I could not pass this up. My factory rear speakers quit working so I decided to swap all 4. The difference over factory is excellent.
Pros: Very clear sound, Easy install
The speakers are gr a at quality everything was easy to order and shippedal really fast. I recommend this product to everyone
The install went great. I changed all 4 factory speakers out within 1 hour. You will need a T-50 socket to disassemble the seat belts in back and a drill to fabricate new holes for your speaker screws in rear. The front you will need a tool to pop the clip holding your window crank on if you have manual roll up windows like I do. Your local part store will have one for usually under $10 and you may even be able to pop it off with a flat head screwdriver. If you have tweeters in the front you will have to disconnect before door panels wil come completely off in front. You will have to fabricate new speaker screw holes the same way you do the rear. This is very easy. I took new speakers and put in place, took a marker and made dots were the new holes will be. This kits provides you with everything you will need. I installed all 4 within an hour so very simple and my order came in super fast. Thanks again Crutchfield!
Pros: Direct fit, easy installation, very great sound quality
These speakers are just what I'm looking for. They are tight bass with good over all sound. I put this in my 1999 Chevy Suburban which had the best audio system at the time. But I wanted it to sound as good as my brand new Toyota Avalon with full top of the line audio system. My Toyota really shakes the door panels. These new speakers really kick, I'm total happy with them. Now I don't want to blast the entire neighbor hood with music, I just want clean pure sound, and that's what I'm getting now. I'm going to add a Kicker sub-woofer now I'm so pleased
Pros: Fits, punchy bass, tight and clean, Crutchfield supplied the adapter cable that required no soldering, great
Great highs and mids. Seriously lacking in the bass department. I would recommend purchasing a sub to balance out these speakers. Overall, the highs and mids sound crisp and clear!
Pros: Highs and Mids
Cons: No Bass
I replace the speakers in my truck truck with these kickers and there was an instant difference in sound in quality. A few months back, I replaced my stock system with 4 jvc door speakers, and let me tell you, there were an absolute joke. That was virtually no bass or sound quality, my stock system sounded better, after not being satisfied for those couple months I broke down and bought this set of kicker speakers, and the topped big systems 10 fold. Chevrolet usually puts pretty decent system in their trucks but these speakers really gave my truck a deeper bass and great sound overall.
Pros: Gave my truck a much deep bass and better sound quality overall inside my cab.
Cons: No cons with the speakers themselves, Crutchfield's instruction that they sent with the speaker brackets just could have been a little more clear that you need to break off the brackets tabs on order for the speakers to fit, they are universal brackets, not designed specifically for one vehicle.
The Dual XRM405BT is a great unit for the price. I only use the bluetooth functions of the unit (to play music from cell phone, answer calls, navigation, etc), but I can verify the sound is crystal clear and works flawlessly. In my opinion, Kicker makes the best sounding speakers. The Kicker 41DSC674 is only a two way speaker, but I hear all levels clearly. I would highly recommend pairing the Dual XRM405BT head unit with Kicker 41DSC674 speakers to anyone wanting to upgrade their factory system to more modern technology that should last for years to come regardless of what your cell phone is.
Pros: Dual XRM405BT: Price, BlueTooth, Ease of Installation Kicker 41DSC674: Sound, Price
What a difference, I installed these speakers with no problems at all. Definitely a big difference in sound. I can hear all sides know. The mounting brackets needed to be modified somewhat, but worked great. Also the wiring harnesses that came with the speakers were self-explanatory or just read the package and connect. All in all the speakers work fantastic huge improvement to the factory speakers and all the accessories that came with them fit great, and were also included free of charge. If not sure about what to buy just call and the people with the expertise and fantastic customer service, like Chip, will help you in any way that you need to help you make an informed decision about what you want to add or replace to your car system. I will buy again and recommend to others.
Pros: Great sound, easy install
Cons: Should have ordered sooner
Great speakers, crisp sound and decent bass. I have a 10 inch sub so I wanted a speaker with good sound. Install was simple I had to trim the brackets a bit but a hand saw worked perfectly. I have no audio back ground and install took about 3.5 hours. Highly recommend !
Pros: Crisp sound Decent bass
Cons: None yet
So i installed these speakers in the rear deck of my 2009 toyota camry, currently only recieving power from the stock head unit and complimenting the rockford p1675 i have in the front doors. At forst the install was a little sketchy since the 6.75" speaker was a bit smaller than the factory 6x9s. But in no way did that cause a loss of sound, i got them all plugged in a settled, told my brother to play a track to test it, and BOOM!, they were perfect right out of the box. Powerful shallow mount speakers for sure. I would recommend these to anyone of they want to run it of factory power. Im gonna be adding a new head unit and amp soon to see how far these will go
Pros: Quality is high as ever Magnet didnt interfere with anything
Cons: Mounting bracket kinda sucked since i had to drill new holes and widen the ones that actually lined up and snap off those little tabs in the brackets
Perfect, just what I needed, sounds sweet!
I bought these for my 2010 Toyota Corolla LE with the stock head unit without JBL. I have a beautifully done wood grain application so I don't want to replace the stock radio. The improvement in the sound was incredible. The highs and lows are dramatically improved. The sound has a lot more detail. The muddy bass from the cheap paper speakers is replaced with a robust and enjoyable bass. I actually turned the treble down a notch. The installation wasn't too bad with the supplied instructions. I can hardly believe how much the sound has improved without changing the head unit. I highly recommend these speakers.
Pros: great improvement over stock without replacing the head unit. The bass is very impressive. The highs sing out. The detail in the music is great.
Great speaker and great price. Sound good on factory stereo, and will really pound on an aftermarket head unit.
Pros: sound quality and price
Cons: lesser volume on factory head unit (as expected)
Great purchase, instalation was pretty easy, the 4th one went in real fast. Great sound.
Pros: ease of instalation, excelent sound. Good price too.
Cons: Didnt get to use the cool looking grills, I think ill use them to make the mother in laws golf cart some new hubcaps!!
A high quality speaker at a decent price. The real benefit of Crutchfield is their spot-on customer service and detailed installation instructions. Best in class!
Pros: Great fit and sound
Cons: ummm, got nuttin'
Easy to install and tremendous sound.
Pros: Great value and easy to install
Excellence performance, using with my amp for voice and it has an excellence high quality voice.
Pros: High quality voices
Easy install, great sound
Pros: Only had to drill mounting holes for screws, no cutting on inner door skins
Installed in a 2012 Silverado CrewCab, The Factory Speakers Were Going Bad, Was Not Wanting To Replace The Whole Stereoor Add An Amp, These Speakers Were Perfect For This Application. Sounds 10X Better than Stock, Very Pleased ! Thanks Crutchfield !
Pros: Price, Quality Of Speaker
Cons: Non That I Have Found
I paired these up with the Kicker DSC6934 in the rear deck. 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. The Crutchfield supplied mounting brackets, wiring harnes, and instruction sheet were worth their weight in gold! Made the install quick and easy at 1hr 15min! I have a Kenwood DDX372BT on the way and will update this post later.
Pros: Decent sounding speaker at a decent price. Crutchfield recommend wiring harness, mounting brackets, and instruction sheet worked well and kept me from doing the searching. Just add the speakers to your Cart and boom, the install accessories are added as well with one click.
I installed these in my brand new 2016 Honda HR-V. I love the functionality of the stock HU with touch screen, backup and right lane cameras etc. but I HATED the sound. I installed these and now I can hear music on the highway with the windows down. Much louder and clearer than stock. I did couple this with an underseat sub-woofer so do not expect great bass from these alone. However the difference over stock is amazing.
Pros: Great sound, easy install, price
Two out of four of my factory installed speakers were blown. I replaced all four. These fit in perfect and the change is amazing and outstanding. It's been years since I swapped out a stereo in a car. Would recommend to anyone ... both the Kicker's and Crutchfield. Price, quality, sound, support, ease of install. Don't wait for years like I did. Do it today!
These were used to replace stock speakers in a 2008 cobalt coupe. The slight modification just requires the drilling of the mounting holes in the door which is really no big deal. The are a vast improvement over the stock door speakers providing much more clarity and crispness to the sound. As other reviewers have mentioned, the mounting hardware that come in the box with the speakers (cheap tab type things) are horrible for mounting. There are better clip style mounts available. Outside of the mounting hardware they put out great sound for the money.
These kickers are a great replacement for my 2011 sonata se with nav package. the mount kit with them however is not suffice for the car. Its best to align the holes and pre-drill some holes into the plastic and then mount the speakers tightly to avoid the rattle that I had with the first round of installation
Pros: GREAT SOUND
Cons: MOUNTING HARDWARE(NOT WIRING PORTION) NOT EFFECIENT
Great speakers to replace stock. Can always count on kicker.
Pros: Easy to install. Connecting wire came with it.
Shipping only took 3 days to get to Nebraska. I installed the Kicker 41 DSC674 in the rear doors of a 2006 Xterra X The installation took about 30 minutes a door and I never installed speakers before.
Pros: Perfect fit, easy install with the Crutchfield 5.25 speaker spacers. Also get a pack of Crutchfield speaker wire connectors. I would recommend these speakers for the rear doors of a Xterra. Great sound compared to the stock speakers.
Took out my old, torn, rotted 6.75 inch g.m. stockers and replaced with these. At first it was just with the JVC head unit power chip and it totally woke up my sound. NOW I've got them amped with 40 r.m.s and even better. I don't always listen to pantera, but when I do, so do my neighbors!!! By the way, my JVC head unit also came from crutchfield, read my review.
Pros: Fit perfect in the extender spacer....the hole.
Cons: I did have to drill a few new pilot holes for a couple of screws but totally no biggie. That's usually the case anyway no matter what car but I like extra secure mounting, I crank!!
The Kicker 41DSC674 6-3/4" 2-Way Car Speakers are nice sounding! They produce good clean bass, clear crisp mids & highs. You just can't go wrong for the price for these car speakers compared to the high dollar component type car speakers. If you are on a budget like myself & don't want to spend a lot of $$, these are a fantastic choice for the money well spent.
Pros: Easy to install, Sound GREAT!
Cons: None so far
Speaker adapter didnt fit, as it was claimed
Cons:Crutchfield response on 6/29/2015 We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
Installed these in my 2007 corolla. Drilling the old speakers out were hard but once done everything else was a breeze. They improve the sound in the car enormously. Definetly worth it, great bass, great sound. No complains
Pros: Sound great. Notice them more than the rear speakers.
Finally replaced the factory speakers in my 97 K1500... wish I would have done that a long time ago, these kicker 6.75 door speakers are AWESOME! Excellent sound quality for a small price. If you are thinking of replacements, definitely give these a thought.
Great speaker with the strength to handle the lows and highs from a factory or custom deck.
Pros: Easy installation and great sound
Cons: Can distort if pushed like most speakers.
First of all, these speakers sound great for a 6 3/4". I didn't expect booming bass but it is very tight, and the mids and highs have great clarity and range. Can play pretty loud without distortion. My only gripe is not with the speakers but with the Metra bracket that was provided. It fits into the door without problems, but in my 2012 Hyundai Sonata, when the speaker is secured into the Metra ring and the Metra harness is screwed into the door, it becomes thicker than the original stock speaker bracket. When the door panel is put back into place, the extra thickness doesn't allow the panel to completely snap in flush with the door and there is a significant bulge. So when Crutchfield says this is a fit, IT IS NOT! The wiring harness is a perfect fit, but that's about it. I tossed the Metras and had to drill holes into the door and it just barely fit because there barely is enough plastic framing around the speaker hole to secure the Kickers. I tried to reuse the original Hyundai bracket but 6-3/4 is too big for it. It will only fit 6-1/2 speakers. This was a very frustrating install and it shouldn't have been if Crutchfield had been more accurate on the fitment.
Pros: Good Mids and Highs. Very efficient speaker. Bass is tight and not muddy but don't expect subwoofer type lows.
Cons: None with the Kickers. Not too pleased with Crutchfield's fitment accuracy.Crutchfield response on 6/9/2015 Whenever you encounter a problem with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, especially a situation like this, please contact our customer service or tech support teams right away. They can help you solve the problem and get your speakers installed and working! Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
The speakers sound great. But there's not much bass with them.
Pros: Clear loud sound
Cons: Bass hits weak
Nice upgrade from stock
Cons: I love the kicker
Very nice sound for an inexpensive speaker
Pros: Great sound over wide frequency range Good treble
Cons: Will choke on very low frequency
Great sounding speakers! Crystal clear highs and nice meaty lows for a 6 3/4 2-way.
Pros: sharp looking speakers, protective speaker grill included! What's not to like!
Cons: didnt fit in the door panel without some modifications, and the fancy speaker grill it came with is useless for the Pontiac Grand Prix applications.
For the money these are excellent speakers. A huge upgrade in my daughter's 2006 Pontiac Vibe. My only complaint is that the instructions were a little vague. You need a bit of mechanical ability to do the installation. All in all, money well spent.
Pros: Price, Sound, Quality
Cons: Poor Instructions
I bought these to replace the oem speakers of my 99 Solara and they are amazing, easy to install and fit well, all I have to do is drill new holes. Great speakers for the price, I would recommended!
They have much better mids and highs but from all the reviews, I was expecting a little more bass! As I only replaced rear door speakers in my 2013 Kia K5 Optima, the front door (factory) still sound better than these Kickers, so I also have a Powered Punch 12" sub/amp combo (also available here) which I will install once the power connector arrives. Installing these took me less than 10 minutes for the pair...these are rated (i.e. Ohms/watts/rms are identical to the factory speakers removed) yet very little lows, it's moving enough air and I'm starting to think that the door is restricting the sound as it was beating hard when I had it outside the door to ensure that all worked prior to mounting. I'd recommend ONLY if you want more volume and not lows as they disappear when volume is turned almost 100% up, but overall can't beat the price for a good quality lower end stock replacement
Pros: Low wattage needed, most plug and play with the best feature being the price and crisp highs
Cons: Lows/bass disappear when turned up
Overall good speakers for the price. I am sure there are much better out there but for the price they blow away the factory speakers
Pros: Good overall sounds, easy installation
I got these speakers for the hard saddle bags on my motorcycle. Lots of punch and full sound for a good price
Pros: Nice full sound
Cons: I don't like the grill cover these come with
Awesome replacements for factory speakers. Clear, crisp, loud and deep bass.
Pros: Great price, easy to install, good performance
Installed these along with kicker 6x9s in my 04 Jeep Grand Cherokee. had to drill new holes but was well worth the effort, sounds awesome!
Great Replacement speaker
Pros: Easy installation Great sound Price
Easy to install, popped right in, sound great
Pros: Easy, simple, effective.
Handles pounding bass beats without vibration. I'm able to crank up my tunes without wondering if my front door speakers will explode or not.
Pros: High quality materials and perfect fit. Ease of installation with bracket and wiring adapters.
Great product with good detailed instructions on installation
Pros: Easy install
Installed these in a friends SUV as upgrade from factory speakers, Sounds great. Much fuller sound than before. He's happy, Next we install a Pioneer GM-4604 Amp (as soon as we get patch cables and the other bit's) He's working on a budget so it give me plenty of time to plan this out...
Pros: Easy to install, Great instructions from Crutchfield's Master Sheet, Sounds Great.
Just installed sound great!!
Speakers sound great for highs and mid range, not so much on the low end. gonna have to purchase subs to get the low range.
Pros: great for price range
Cons: for the money the speakers should have best of all three ranges
VERY nice price and SO MUCH better than ANY factory speaker... or any other aftermarket 6.75 I have ever replaced! I have never been a big fan of Kicker, but have been a loyal Crutchfield buyer for over 20 years. They steered me to buying Kicker replacements and they were on the money with that encouragement! I will be more apt to buying Kicker products in the future. These are just so clear and add more bass than you might expect for such a small speaker. I have them powered by a Kicker 4x50 watt amp (installed by the dealership). The car ROCKS!!
Pros: ease of replacement and all the necessary hardware in the box. GREAT value in the price point!!
Cons: Make sure you seal all metal to plastic and vented areas because these hit hard and will find any rattles you may have.
Always a fan of Kicker speakers ; best bang for the buck out there. I bought these for the rear doors of a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee; hoping to unscrew the factory ones, and install these in their place. The pre-drilled holes in the speaker casing did not align (at all) with the factory set-up. Could not use any of the supplied Kicker hardware to attach them either. Had to carefully center the new speaker on the door opening and drill new holes; then attach with locktite wetted sheet metal screws. Also beware of the freebie speaker wire connectors that connect with the factory wiring; the polarity is reversed.
Pros: Great Kicker sound and quality. Very nice speaker.
Cons: Did not fit the factory opening. Had to drill out a new set of holes.
Decent sounding upgrade from stock, but they do not sound as good as Kicker KS line. Good value for the $.
Pros: Good value.
Cons: You can tell they are a budget speaker
Great sound , very nice
Pros: great sound ,easy install with wiring
Great speakers especially for the Price
Pros: Loud Look good sound good Good bass
Cons: Bass can be a little boomy if turned up alot
great spreakers for the price they sound great.
Pros: Great sound great price and easy to install.
Didn't spend big but got what I wanted
Pros: Good price and good sound
Wow. I'm very please. I had no problem with installation. It fits perfect. I highly recommend Crutchfield products for all your audio needs. These Kickers are perfect.
Pros: Easy to install and these speakers awesome.
The speakers were really clear sounding and good quality
Replaced the stock speakers in my wife's 2011 Hynda Elantra. The stock speakers sounded terrible and my wife commutes 35 miles each way to work so I bought 2 of these for the front. Sound so much better than the stock. She likes her music up high. I would by them again and recommend them to a friend. The kit you get from crutchfield worked as described. I order all my audio from them as they have the best instructions and you get everything you need and help by phone anytime you need it.
Pros: Fast shipping, great sound.
Cons: Not great on Bass.
I have a 98 suburban and these speakers fit and fill all 4 door speaker locations nicely. Without an aftermarket stereo and no sound deadening material installed yet. These speakers are very good through the mid range and highs. I will hopefully update this when i get the deadener installed.
Pros: Fit Appearance Sound vs Cost
Replaced factory speakers on a 2014 Chevy Cruze. I sweated out how complicated a process this would be - not something I take on every day! Between the Crutchfield instructions and info online and on Youtube, it did relieve the stress. Once I got the hang of it, process moved along fairly well. Mounting brackets I believe were adaptable for speakers from 5 1/2 to 6 3/4 ", and you have to remove tabs from these brackets to make the 6 3/4 to fit - not immediately clear in the instructions to me. Crutchfield's phone support was great to walk me through that bump in the installation. I installed 4 front and rear speakers. It is now a week and a half later and I really enjoy the full range balanced clarity of these speakers. In terms of others commenting on lack of bass, that's kinda true, these aren't thumping sub-woofers, but from blue grass to hip hop, if there is a strong bass to the music, you'll get some bounce from these. Great speakers for the money.
Pros: Value, clear sound quality on all audio levels from highs to lows
Sound is awesome. Speakers replaced stock speakers.
Change out my stock speakers on my 2009 Chevy Tahoe with two pairs of these kickers, had a little modification to do because Crutchfield instruction downloaded was for a 2007, similar but missed a few steps like the wire harness plugs which I figured out eventually, these speakers sound very clean and crisp, not much bass but just enough to vibrate my door mirrors, this is where sound deadening comes in, hey I'm happy with my purchase plus I got a pair of Cush over the ears headphones, part of a deal Kicker was running at the time of purchase...
Pros: Exact fitment, easy install with Crutchfield brackets and wire harness... I hard a hard time choosing different brands but I think I chose the right one..
Cons: none I could think of except it was raining on and off, took longer to install...
Very clean and loud sound for the price
Pros: Easy factory fit
I was looking for replacement speakers for my Bose equipped truck to replace all of them ( one of the stock ones had started going fuzzy). I first installed the two in the rear, of which the stock ones never sounded that great.... And then compared them to the front which I always thought sounded pretty good for factory speakers. And I was amazed how bad the Bose speakers actually sounded! Now all 4 are in and I actually enjoy listening to music again in that truck. And by the way my older pickup ( my toy/project truck) has a full component/individual amps system installed; I never thought I'd get even close to this level of clarity out of replacement speakers and stock electronics.
Pros: Straight forward install, screwed in right in place of old units ( albeit new holes)
Cons: For the price..... Not really.
Excellent speakers for the money
Cons: 2 way speakers
I purchased these speakers based on the other positive reviews. The install instructions were very clear and easy to follow. These speakers are far better than the factory speakers. Very clean sound and at high volumes. I have them running off of a Pioneer after market 50x4 head unit. They made such a difference I am now changing the front door and tweeters with Kickers as well.
Pros: Very clear, don't distort at high volumes. Good quality and great price.
Cons: Can't find any at this point
These we're a prefect fit. And the sound was great. So I bought another pair.
Pros: Made from superior materials compared to the factory speakers
Great speakers. Love sound quality and the price.
Pros: Easy install for replacement speakers
Cons: Little small for factory holes in jeep Grand Cherokee.
Great speakers, for the money. They are sensitive enough to use on a factory stereo, and have been an improvement over stock.
Easy installation no brackets or modifications needed, although I did cut out holes in my back deck (was recarpeting it anyways) and used the included Kicker grills... Excellent BASS for the speaker.. just running off of my Kenwood KDC-X598 (22 Watt RMS) and for the front speakers I'm using Kenwood Kfc-P709Ps, was originally planning on putting a 4 channel amp on them and now I don't think I need one.. although I haven't hooked up a sub yet so that might change.. Highly recommend these for a budget minded install!! Would definitely purchase again. Defintely need to have either an aftermarket HU or external AMP to power these properly.
Pros: Perfect fit into my rear deck, excellent sound, awesome bass...
The service and the speakers were excellent. The sound is great !!!
Pros: Everything is good
Cons: No problems
This review is solely based on someone who needs to replace 3 blown speakers out of 6 factory speakers on a 1995 GMC Safari van, and is on a budget. The van is already equipped with a JVC deck when I bought it and the specs of the JVC deck is 50W per channel. Since these 6-3/4" are slightly larger than the stock ones, which Crutchfield DID mentioned, on the dash installation, you need to dremel a groove on the enclosure towards the windshield to let these bigger speakers to slide in. Once done, you can use the original mounting hardware. These speakers do sound much better than the stock unlike the 4" Kicker 40CS44 pillar ones which IMHO are just ever so slightly better. It could be due to the fact that I "upsized" them. On the rear door installation, you do not need to remove the whole door panels as per the Crutchfield provided removal/installation instructions IF your Safari is a passenger van as opposed to a cargo van. Just pry the plastic speaker grilled covers, good to go! Also, the stock speakers are popped riveted so I had to drill them out. I relocated 3 self tapping screws per rear speakers as I do not have a pop rivet tool with me. Just be very careful not to damage the speakers by slipping your drill and puncture them. On a full 6 Kicker speakers configuration, now I can hear bass notes (it's a torture when they play RHCP on the radio and you wonder where is Flea) and my favourite bassist on power metal. Pleased with this DIY fix and everything shipped at $170.
Pros: Adapting connectors and instruction sheet provided. Crutchfield noted these need modifications and it's not really a big effort if you have a dremel and hand drill. A vacuum is great so you can "clean as you go". Priced great. 1995 GMC Safari van now sounds like my 2010 Toyota Corolla stock setup as a comparison.
Cons: No cons for my experience. These work for me as I'm not an ICE chaser and on a budget.
Great speakers and great price from Crutchfield.
Wow, I submitted a question to Crutchfield for their recommended speaker for my 2007 Tahoe with Bose system. They recommended the Kicker all three times. I am so pleased with it. Installing was not bad after following their instructions with order. Love the sound! Now may replace the rear door speakers!
Pros: Great clear sound. I am not a window rattler listener but the volume can be cranked up and the Kicker speakers stay clear!
Cons: I might have to buy more to replace the rear speakers as they sound inferior now....lol
Awesome replacements for my old factory speakers. Great sound quality, the bass is good, and they are installed very simply! Great buy!
Pros: Easy Installation, Sound quality, great bass.
Fits my vehicle well, no brackets required. Sound is good. Wish there was more bass, but the sound is strong and clear.
Pros: Ease of installation, good sound.
Cons: Bass is low and could be much better.
Replaced all 4 door speakers with a Kicker 41DSC674 speaker. I had never replaced any speakers before and the only instructions I received were the ones that came from the manufacturer which were somewhat sparse in helpful information. Despite this, I was able to install the speakers and get them working. The sound quality was more than adequate as the previous speakers were 12 year old OEM units. Had there been better instructions, I would've given the experience 5 stars instead of 4.
Pros: Great sound for the cost.
Cons: The supplied instructions from Kicker provided very little installation info that was useful.
More bass than stock. Sounds great
Pros: Perfect fit
The speakers performed excellent, I was very surprised considering the low cost.
Pros: The speakers came with all the necessary adaptors for my Harley Electra Glide and the installation was a breeze.
My stock door speakers in my 2005 Kia Sorento were blown so i needed to replace them. These speakers do the job nicely. It took me a minute to figure out the wiring but after that, the installation was easy. I only had to drill one hole in each door and they fit great. Nice price for a nice upgrade.
Pros: Great upgrade from stock for a decent price.
Cons: My only problem was figuring out the wiring. And even that wasn't really that difficult.
Easy research, easy purchase, easy install, great sound.
Cant complain about the product. Needed replacement speakers. They fit the bill perfectly
These speakers were purchased as replacement speakers in the door of a 95 Celica. I had only heard that Kicker speakers were considered a good speaker. I had no experience with them or even heard how they sounded. I jus went on recommendation from Crutchfield and word of mouth. I didn't want to spend a lot on speakers since it was just to replace the factory ones in my son's first car. The originals were completely blown out. The replacement was a little bit of a challenge since Crutchfield claimed that they fit. They are not the same size as the originals so I needed to create a modification ring. It was suggested by a Cruchfield rep to try making something from some MDH board. I was able to do that without too much stress. Once I had the speakers in and turned the radio on, I was totally impressed with the sound. These are really a great speaker for the price. Glad I purchased them and would recommend to anyone looking for a replacement speaker.
Cons: Nothing with the product. Only complaint is that Crutchfield doesn't have it right that these speakers are a like for like replacement.
I replaced all four door speakers in my 2007 Chevy Silverado. Pretty easy installation. Good sound. I think these speakers are similar to the factory speakers, maybe a little better. Excellent website that shows which speakers are compatible with my truck.
Pros: Great customer service. Pretty good sound for the price.
Cons: Customer service rep could not explain how to use the mounting bracket clips, so I installed the speakers without the clips. Mounting brackets seemed like they needed a little longer screws, and CS rep said that one or two treads would be fine. Hopefully the speakers do not fall out. A few of the directions did not have the correct steps or pictures, so I had to improvise.
Great little speaker for the price
Pros: Fit like the factory speaker
Inexpensive speakers with great sound quality and customer service that is top notch. I would recommend anyone and everyone to try crutchfield just to experience the level of expertise I had first hand.
Pros: Great speakers great price
Cons: Nothing I could find
Ordered 2 pair. Fast shipping. Very easy installation and appreciated the instructions & pig tails that were kindly provided. Good natural bass, clear, crisp highs. Makes long drives a lot of fun. The Pioneer head unit & these Kicker speakers have my Maxima sounding great.
Pros: Very well constructed. Proper fit. Have had kicker speakers before and was very pleased.
Cons: Not sure about foam surrounding the wofer, but we will find out!
I bought my car about a year ago and finally got around to replacing the crappy blown out stock speakers. The difference was immediate and indisputable, these speakers kick so much harder and have really impressive high-frequency clarity, especially for the price. The install was easy, I just followed the directions crutchfield gave me. The bass is good, (not 2 12" subs good, but good) and the highs are quite clear. Every once in a while I find myself listening to church choirs and where my old speakers would distort and hiss, these speaker just sing it out loud and proud. Great value, I highly recommend.
Easy to install and sound excellent. Fit perfectly in existing stock speakers location with a few new holes and screws that came with the set any one can do this on there own in less than an hour. Could not be happier with the price and sound from old to new.
Great crisp sound...Beats factory speakers by far.
Great speakers for the price. Fit perfect in the stock locations and sound great.
Pros: Super easy to change out and came with all necessary hardware.
Great speakers, clear and clean sound. Perfect for OEM receivers and full aftermarket systems. Great quality product for people who know good speaker sound!
Pros: Price to sound delivery doesn't get any better
Simply the best!!!!
My factory speakers were reaching the end of their life and needed replacement. These fit the bill all the way around. Inexpensive but sound great in my 09 GMC Sierra.
Pros: Sound great. Inexpensive.
Cons: None for the price point
Good value for the money. Sound is good. Installation kit worked good. Installed in '08 Chevy Silverado Crew Cab replaced all 4.
Pros: Price, Sound quality, Installation.
Cons: Needed to cut plastic tabs on mounting brackets for the speakers to fit flush on brackets but it wasn't a problem to do.
Speakers sound very good. Excellent upgrade for older Sentra. Value is great. Crutchfield service was excellent, install kits effective and included a Sunday afternoon Tech call which was answered.
Pros: Excellent value and sound
Cons: None so far as I know
This speakers sound amazing, im gad I got them. I currently own a maxima 01 and used the old bracket that it had, if you have a factory radio you wont get the best out of the kicker speakers because your radio only sends out 50 watts to each speaker. But anyhow I suggest you go with these speakers 240 watts of power BABY !
Pros: Loud !
Cons: No cons !
Great speakers for the price. I can't complain, especially when the install kit was included and installed effortlessly.
Pros: Price, performance for the money, easy install.
Great sound very impressed
Better than some speakers costing twice ad much
Pros: Good sound. Easy install
Great replacement for my Silverado door speakers....easy install
I wanted a budget speaker for an old work truck and these worked out better than I expected. I replaced the stock door speakers on my GMC with these and was pleasantly surprised by the improved sound. I couldn't have asked for more and would buy them again in the future for my other trucks.
Pros: Great sound Low price Easy installation with free harness
I bought these to replace the factory door speakers in my 2004 Toyota Matrix. The sound range is Great. Very Crisp Highs and solid Mids. You aren't going to get 'Thumping' bass from these (maybe a bit if you add an amp) I am running them with a 52x4 Sony Deck and they sound great. The install was very easy with included brackets and wire clips. Thanks Crutchfield!
Pros: Sound way better than factory speakers, easy install
Cons: None so far
These speakers are great if you are on a budget like I am. They handle the mid to high range beautifully and have a very clear crisp sound in this range. It does fall a little short in the lows however. Now I realize that they aren't super high end performance speakers and I didn't expect them to perform like one's but they don't bring out the lower tones as much as I had hoped. They fall a little short when it come to the bass tones but if your installing an amp and sub like I am they will do great. Overall 4 stars but great speakers regardless of the limit of the range.
Pros: Great mids and high tones, Clean crisp sound.
Cons: Could have more bass
These speakers are a great upgrade from the factory ones I had in my S10 pickup. The sound is unbeatable for the price!!
Pros: Great sound, easy install with Crutchfield instructions
Sounds great and looks good
Pros: Sounds great
Cons: The only thing that sucked was that it didn't really fit in my doors
Installed these into my Son's 2008 Chevy Cobalt. They are a perfect fit & easy to install. Great mids & highs with even just a slight punch of bass for a 6.75" speaker from the factory head unit. After all, if you want big bass, you got to have subs & amps! I'm a JL Audio fan, but these were better than i expected! i haven't bought Kicker since the 80's. Great price as well!
Pros: Crisp highs & great mids with a slight punch of bass. Perfect fit, easy installation, & great price!
Installed these baby's in a 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe and once I figured out they didn't fit as advertised, I had to cut out the factory speakers from their mounting brackets, and reuse the mounting brackets again to mount these new speakers. Once I got them mounted and hooked up, the sound that followed was music to my ears! I am currently running them off of a newer aftermarket head unit with 20 watts RMS. It sounds very good, with pretty good bass with music that has it in the track. Highs, as expected, are clear and not to bright, but adequately balanced. It has improved sound greatly from the stock paper speakers. On sale these cant really be beat. I've never had Kicker speakers before ,so I don't have that to compare to, but for basic replacement speakers, I would definitely recommend these. I like high definition sound, and these improved it greatly.
Fairly simple 'bolt in' with the use of the Toyota wiring adapter plugs to mate the factory installed wiring harness to the speaker itself. Installation of speaker to factory speaker bracket allowed only 3 of the 4 possible speaker mounting holes to be used, and then only two of the four lined up to provide excellent 'bite' into the bracket. Not sure I'm comfortable with this arrangement but I used 3-M double backed tape on the speaker frame for additional adhesion / affixing. Shouldn't be a problem but still - I thought they'd attach more securely. Great sound from this (front) with the addition of the 3 1/2 speakers in the rear doors. I thought it would be too small to replace the factory JBL 7-speaker system (front dash tweeters, 4-door mounted speakers, separate sub-woofer in rear deck) - but I was wrong. These speakers sound MUCH better and the separation of sounds, balance (front-rear / left-right) is outstanding. Excellent Bass Response with fantastic highs & mid-range sound.
Pros: Easy install - sounds great Provided wiring harness adulator makes it a 'plug & play' installation without soldering / crimping wires.
Cons: Less than original number of attachments to secure speaker to the door.
Installed in minutes. Didn't have to do anything special.. Sound great! inexpensive and over all a great deal. would definitely buy again.
sounds good for the price
Cons: could have better bass response

If you want bass then do it right and buy a sub and amp. These are like factory car speakers only the are slightly better quality. [ Charles Matthew Dec 15, 2015 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on comparing speaker models I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences and help you make the best choice for your system and your budget. [ Kenny Dec 15, 2015 ] Staff
Better ask an audio expert. Sorry. [ Jon Apr 08, 2015 ]
Depends what you mean by combine. Daisy chaining to and existing speaker is NOT good. If you can expand on what you plan to do exactly I may be able to expand my answer. [ nick w Apr 08, 2015 ]
Marty, I have these speakers hooked to a Fosgate 4 x 75 RMS amp and they sound great with the crossover set to play only mids and highs (they are 2-way speakers so not designed for bass). I set my gain to 9 and they handle the power great. If not running subs or 3-way speakers in another location in vehicle would recommend 3-way speakers to get you best over all sound and some bass.

I was not able to use the Kickers in my application, so am unable to answer the question.... [ Larry Dec 03, 2014 ]
