Overview

Our take on the Kicker KM604W

These powerful Kicker 6-1/2" speakers are tough enough for marine duty, but easy on your ears. The durable poly woofers and 1/2" balanced dome tweeters cut through wind, waves, and engine roar to deliver great sound without annoying harshness. The classic white grilles will look great in your boat, too.

Great sound, subtle design

These powerful Kicker 6-1/2" speakers are tough enough for marine duty, but easy on your ears. The durable poly woofers and 1/2" balanced dome tweeters cut through wind, waves, and engine roar to deliver great sound without annoying harshness. The classic white grilles will look great in your boat, too.

Like all KM Series models, Kicker designed these 4-ohm speakers for life on the water, with sealed motors, rubber cone surrounds, and locking terminal covers to keep spray away from the internal componentry. They'll also stand up to harsh sunlight, thanks to special UV treatments on the cones, surrounds, baskets, and grilles. Whether you're on fresh water or salt, these speakers will give you years of outstanding performance.

Replaced a set of fusion speakers that I had put in 6 yr ago. Thought the fusion sounded great. But these are the bomb!!! The sound is unbelievable.. highly recommended..

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased these to upgrade my pontoon sound system. WOW........I installed two sets and they sound amazing. No amp just running off head unit and they still have a ton of bass. I recommend these to anyone looking for a great set of 6.5"!!

Pros:

Cons:

Great sound and durability.

Felix from Dorado, PR on 3/17/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is the second time I purshed them. The old ones last years of intensive tropical sun, salt and humidity. I have 4 with an old Sony 600w amp and they sound great and loud. For the price they are a good choice.

Pros: Loud Great clarity Good bass

Cons:

Good value for a resonable cost

Timothy from Jacksonville, FL on 3/14/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The sound is strong across all spectrums. I have 6 of them in a 24 ft. bay boat.

Pros: good bass, install easily

Cons: not sure how long they will last in my bay boat since it gets wet sometimes, Had them about 2 months so far

Installed 4 Kicker marine speakers in our Center Console boat. Sounds great. Clear no distortion crisp highs and good lows. Happy with purchase and would buy again.

Pros: Easy install

Cons: No wire connectors included for speaker

T.J. from Geneseo, IL on 1/15/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Put these in a Jeep Wrangler. Fit the factory sound bar with minimal modification. Power via and alpine 45 watt amp. They look great and deliver clear, crisp mid-range as component. I experienced distortion at louder volume prior to activating the high pass filter, so probably not going to give you much bass if that's what you are wanting.

Pros: Look awesome, good sound.

Cons: Not good for bass.

I replaced the speakers in my 2006 Four Winns Deckboat. Good sound for a good price. These seem to be pretty durable. Since I just installed these speakers, I cannot comment on their longevity or how they will handle marine use.

Cons:

J.L. from Charlotte NC on 3/9/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great speakers. Got some guidance and help from the staff dedeciding on the right choice. Installed them two weekends ago. Still a little too cool to be out on the lake but spent most of last weekend sitting in the slip enjoying! Very eclectic music taste and these sounded great across all genres. Looking forward to getting away from the dock so I can crank them up a bit without dirty looks from my Marina neighbors.

Pros:

Cons:

Great Marine Replacement Speakers

TravisH from Nashville TN on 1/19/2016

Replaced the blown out Jensen speakers that came with my Party Barge with these, radio has 40W RMS output, so I didn't amplify separately, they sound great, nice mid and low range and easy to install with one piece design.

Pros: Sound Ease of Install Delivered quickly Well packed

Cons: None

Amazing

Hunter from Tennessee on 9/21/2015

They will take every bit of the rms of 90 and then some. I have them in my jeep and they are so clean.

Pros: everything they are awesome

Cons: nothing

Boom Bang

notfastnotfurious from Wisco on 7/24/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The speakers themselves are awesome. I'm not a big audiophile so i can't tell you how much better the mid's were than the hi's, but they sounds great in the boat, and when paired with the amp i picked up kick out great sounding music all that way up to the head unit's max volume. I would have given a 5 star review, but i'm disappointed that Crutchfield didn't ship plug on leads for the speakers, c'mon Crutchfield?!

Pros: I said above

Cons: no plug on leads for speakers, must make your own or solder some on

Grand Kids Love New Speakers

Pros:

Cons: Grill is to open in front of speaker

Excellent value!

DaveL from Minnesota on 6/12/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I ordered two pairs to replace the four original marine speakers (2003) that had completely degraded. I am really happy! These Kickers are a terrific value! The bass is solid and the mid and high ranges sound fine. Running off stock JVC deck at 45 watts per channel. There are a lot of options for stock/OEM replacements... Kicker is a very good choice.

Pros: 1.) Ease of installation 2.) No separate grill; cover "grill" integrated into speaker frame. 3.) They sound very good in factory locations.

Cons: No problems that I encountered.

Great spekers

Dander3 from South Carolina on 5/27/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these to replace a pair of Clarion marine speakers that blew after a year. All I can say is WOW, these kickers are great for the price. The bass is impressive and the highs are pretty good. I'm still running them on my old Jensen head unit, but I'm sure they would sound even better with more power. I had several people ask this weekend if I had a sub on the boat the bass was so good. I would absolute recommend these speakers.

Pros: Great bass Very efficient

Cons: the tweeter is a little scratchy, but still good for the price.

DM from Ohio on 4/20/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I replaced my factory 6.5" speakers in my Yamaha 242 Limited. I kept the factory head unit and the new Kickers sound 100 times better. I know they perform even better with an amp but I chose to keep my factory unit for now. Well worth the investment and the advice I received from Crutchfield was 100% on par with what I needed. Thanks!

Pros: Great value, great sound, superb sensitivity, low power need

Cons: None

Ty from oklahoma on 4/12/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Put 2 pair of these in our boat. They sound great. I almost went with the more expensive color changing ones, but decided on these. They're ez to install, crisp and clear. Powering them with a Fusion stereo, seems like a perfect match. Thanks Crutchfield.

Pros: Not too expensive, sound great, look great, and efficient.

Cons: None yet

what i expected

markos from san diego on 9/27/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

put them in my 32 foot monterey. they sound as expected. my issues stem more from needing more power and a sub than anything. but these speakers fit their need. i'm satisfied with them.

Pros:

Cons:

Surprise Performance

CarlG from Ridgefield, CT on 9/5/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I didn't expect the response range and the efficiency from these speakers. Sound quality equal to speakers costing much more. Performed very well at higher volumes while operating the boat.

Pros: Great quality at an affordable price

Cons: Wished they were a little smaller to fit in original cut outs.

What an improvement!

Sparky from Clintonville, WI on 8/21/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Huge improvement over the stock speakers in my boat. Better sound throughout the entire listening range. I'm sure these speakers would really deliver with a marine amplifier!

Pros: Great performance. Excellent price.

Cons:

Jeff from Tim's Ford Lake, TN on 7/8/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I put 4 of these speakers in my boat and they sound great. They have excellent depth/bass. The 22 watt Kenwood gives them plenty of power for all the volume and quality sound I need. I am very pleasantly suprised with these speakers.

Pros: depth/bass and quality sound at high volume

Cons: Measurement provided but no "cut out" template to trace for marking hole cut. Expected one on the box but not there.

Features

Marine-Ready: The Kicker KM series marine coaxial speakers are engineered to meet or exceed industry standards for environmental humidity and corrosion. The speakers feature sealed motors, cones, and locking wire terminal covers.

Size: The41KM604Ws fit into standard 6-1/2 and 6-3/4 openings (standard car speaker sizes), but the frame is even bigger than a typical 6-3/4 speaker, so they are not likely to fit easily in any car applications.

Grilles: The grilles are not removable.

Stainless Steel Hardware: The provided hardware is forged from corrosion-proof stainless steel.
