I spent several years restoring and preparing a 1967 Firebird convertible, for a return to the road once again. In the net scheme of things, once the top
goes down the noise levels go up, so the speakers that reproduce the sound, are a critical part of the drive. I found from listening experience, that
Kicker speakers deliver a sound and response, that makes the drive much more enjoyable. In my 60's, I'm not trying to reproduce a big blue boom box
at 65 miles per hour, just a nicer fidelity and bass response to the lower and low mid range frequencies, which can make all the difference. My current
1971 project car which is also a convertible, employs the new Kicker 41KSC694 6X9 speaker. From all that I've read, and listened to using this speaker,
there's no question about it. The 41KSC694 delivers a quality of sound for my project, that the competitors speaker just doesn't . In my 1971 project
convertible, I have the opportunity to warm up the bass response and from all my tests, the 41KSC694 will out perform it's best competitor, taking
into account the acoustics of the car.. such as the carpet, seat material and hard metal surfaces. The tests so far, have resulted in a premium sound
quality.. something I continue to get from Kicker speakers.
Pros: The pro of this speaker" is that for my purposes, I'm using the 41KSC694 to enhance bass response.. as opposed to lower "mid ranges".
I'm impressed with the surface area of this speaker, that moves the air. Db per Db. I get a better quality without having to turn up the
volume to much higher levels. I've learned that for some people, volume is most important. For me, it's about quality and the ability to
deliver great fidelity. This speaker does just that.
Cons: I have no cons at this time.
