Overview

Our take on the Kicker 40CS654

Upgrading the old factory speakers in your car will give you a huge bump in sound quality, and Kicker designed CS Series speakers to get your sound system rockin' without breaking the bank. You'll enjoy your music even more when you hear all the details that your muddy-sounding factory speakers couldn't begin to reproduce.  

Kicker 40CS654

Kicker uses rugged materials to ensure these speakers live a long life in your car doors.

It's time for an upgrade

Upgrading the old factory speakers in your car will give you a huge bump in sound quality, and Kicker designed CS Series speakers to get your sound system rockin' without breaking the bank. You'll enjoy your music even more when you hear all the details that your muddy-sounding factory speakers couldn't begin to reproduce.  

Built tough

Kicker's 40CS654 speaker set provides low-end from a tough 6-1/2" polypropylene woofer, with a polyester foam surround that will stay strong for years to come. The 1/2" PEI balanced dome tweeter takes care of the vocal and instrumental details that'll really bring your music to life. These speakers sound great powered by a factory radio or an aftermarket car stereo, and they'll really rock when connected to an external amplifier. Grilles are included.

Great for factory speaker replacement. Good sound quality.

Front speakers fit exactly like they should have with the included brackets. Very simple install. The brackets on the back speakers did not work. I just took the old ones off of the old factory speakers and they screwed right in perfectly.

Pros: great sound for a great price easy to install

Cons: brackets for rear speakers did not fit.

Clarity finally

Jason from Wisconsin on 2/21/2017

Iv always been into kicker. Just love how smooth they sounds at every frequency and they are hard to blow. I just replaced my pioneer for kicker and way much better. I'll always recommend kicker with confidence.

Pros: I love the material they use and the stitching. Very good quality just looking at them. Good sound response and clarity. Nice that they carry products for every type of budget.

Cons: Don't really have any cons except the price on some of the higher end equipment. You get what you pay for though.

Marcus from Atlanta, GA on 2/17/2017

2002 BMW 3 Series

When I pulled up to pick up my car (02 325ci) the doors were open while dud was installing my 2 rear & 2 door speakers. I thought all 4 were in from the sound, but it was just the front doors..! Instead of going with Kickers all around, I went with 2 JVC's for the front since I was replacing the stock radio with a JVC. My guy put the Kickers in the door because they sound better insulated, and the JVC's on the rear deck. Well, I'm purchasing another 2 Kickers to go in the rear, and a amp just for a little more thump. You cant beat the price or quality, trust me...nice upgrade from the stock without spending a fortune..(under $800 for 6 speakers, head unit, & amp with installation..)

Pros: Quick delivery, the little things included that installers get you for are included already, and of course... PRICES!!!!

Cons: I should have done this 2 years ago..!

Speakers were easy to install thanks to the Crutchfield instructions and YouTube videos. Speakers are crisp and clear. Like a breath of fresh air after delaying the purchase for several months to get through the holiday expenses! I had the speakers in 2 days using the free shipping. Once again, Crutchfield came thru ...fast, complete and highest quality.

2006 Toyota Tundra
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Didn't realize how bad the factory speakers on my 2006 Tundra had deteriorated/rotted out (no wonder they sounded so bad lately). Crutchfield advisor recommended these speakers. I am running off a Blaupunkt head unit also recently installed, no amp. The native 22 watts RMS drive these very well and the sound is awesome. Maybe a tab bright on the tweeters but I expect a few hours of playing them in and they will settle down. The best part is the price!

Pros: Great sound, sensitive enough to be driven well from head unit in no outboard amp set ups.

Cons: Installation kit for my 2006 Tundra was not a great fit. Had to drill extra holes and get creative to get it all to work.

I installed these in my 2005 GMC Sierra (front doors) I had little hope in these for a decent sounding speaker....BOY WAS I WRONG! The bass is decent (more than I expected) and they highs and mids are crystal clear! The Crutchfield advisors once again were terrific, as i have come to expect, and why it is such a pleasure to do business with them. I plan to replace the rear door speakers with these as well...and to replace the speakers in my wife's Tahoe with the same.

Purchased June 2015. After playing with my pioneer HU settings these speakers have so much bass compared to my stock bose system. Would recommend especially at this price range.

Pros: Easy to install especially with Crutchfield support.

Cons: None at all at this price range.

Great for 2015 Ram

Bill from Scottsdale, AZ on 1/18/2017

2015 Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers work very well and are Much better over stock. They were very easy to install and instructions that came with from Crutchfield were likewise very easy to follow. The clips to connect to the factory system was perfect and made installation a breeze. So why only 3 stars? I'm giving Crutchfield 3 stars for two reasons. 1) I didn't know that the stock speakers on my 2015 Ram 1500 single cab were 6x9s. The website said the 6.5" speakers were a direct fit for my truck (I used the "find my vehicle" thingy to search for replacement speakers). Nothing suggested showed 6x9, I guess I should have questioned why the Kicker speakers needed an adapter, but oh well. 2) Crutchfield doesn't sell the PS series Kicker speaker in 6.5".

Pros: Easy install Sound is major improvement over stock

Cons: N/A

Crutchfield response on January 31, 2017 Our OutfitMyCar application concentrates on what speakers fit from what we carry. It doesn't always comply with the factory sizing in a particular vehicle. In this case, the size restrictions in the factory locations don't allow any of our 6x9" speakers to fit, which is why Bill didn't see any listed for his Ram. The other sizes fit with the brackets we offer for the stock 6x9" locations.

I can't express how much I don't like these speakers in the front doors of my RAM truck. Converting from 6X9 factory size was a bad recommendation from Crutchfield. I should have went with my gut and stuck with the 6x9 kickers. the bass sounds like a plastic box as a result of the conversion kit.

John from Worcester, MA on 1/1/2017

2014 Toyota Sienna
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I went to a local big box electronics place to listen to these compared to Alpine, Pioneer, and JBL of the same class and cost and they sounded the most tonally accurate to me. The tweeters are a bit bright but once they are installed in the door and are typically off axis they argent so bad. I used these as rear fill speakers for the kid in out 2014 Sienna van and they were the only 6.5" coaxial speaker that was shallow enough to fit between the panel and the vehicle frame. Powering them with the Pioneer AVH5800BHS deck power of about 14 watts RMS and they are mounted infinite baffle so bass response inst there below 100 Hz but that is what a subwoofer is for.

Pros: Sound nice for this price range

Cons: When I was comparing them and added an amplifier to them they actually sounded worse to me? Kind of thought that was weird!

Anthony from Kodak, TN on 12/29/2016

2014 Jeep Wrangler
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought 2 sets of these for my Jeep Wrangler JK. The install was fairly straightforward. The sound from these speakers is more clear and louder than the factory set, but there are absolutely no lows being put out from them. It is mid-range and treble all the way. With 4 of them surrounding you, it's too much. If not for the sub behind the back seat, it'd be unbearable. The factory paper speakers produced better mid-low range sound. Maybe it's because they haven't been broken in yet.... Maybe it's the factory head unit.... Or maybe these speakers just aren't that great.

Pros: Appearance, mounting depth

Cons: No mid-low range. All treble.

Christian from Pleasant Hill, IA on 12/14/2016

2000 Subaru Forester
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I absolutely LOVE these speakers. I had them in all 4 doors of my Colorado pickup, and they sounded killer. Plenty of bass and super crisp sounding. I bought a 2000 Forester, and if you know subarus, you know the stock speakers are garbage (especially from that era). I upgraded the front door speakers to a set of Pioneer 3-ways that were about the same price as these kickers, and was completely disappointed. So I immediately ordered a set of these to try in it, and WOW. I can't believe I even thought about going with other speakers. I guess I just wanted to see what was out there as options. BELIEVE ME when I say that for this price range, these speakers can NOT be beat!

Pros: Great Clarity Great Bass Great Quality

2003 Honda Accord EX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Overall not impressed with these speakers. Had a pair of Kicker 6x9's in my old car and loved them.Compared these speakers side by side with the stock speakers on my 03 accord and the stock speakers had a better range of lows. The only positive about these speakers is that they allow music to be played at high volume without getting distorted, so I guess you could say they are just "loud". I would return them but I already went through the pain of taking my door panels apart once and I don't want to do it again. If you're looking at speakers that have a good range of lows don't buy these. Maybe they would sound better with an amp. Otherwise save your money and get a better speaker for a little more money.

Pros: They are loud

Cons: Not a wide range of lows. My stock speakers sound better The mounting brackets don't come with the hardware to mount them to the door

I purchased a set of 4 Kicker 40CS654 for my 2013 Jeep Wrangler JKU to replace the factory speakers and the sound was SO AWESOME that I bought a set of 2 to replace the rear speakers in my 2004 Jeep TJ. The sound is amazing and I will soon be buying the Kicker 4x6 for the front speakers. I cannot recommend these speakers enough. JDM

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed these speakers in the front doors of a 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 after my factory speakers crapped out on me. They are a great improvement over the factory speakers. I figured while I'm replacing the fronts that I would replace the rears while I'm at it with the Kicker 40CS464s'. They are also a great improvement. I gave them a 4 rating because they are only installed for about a week now. The sound is crisp & clear plus I'm sure they will sound better after the burn in period. I feel that maybe I should have upgraded them with a pair of component speakers because I have the enhanced speaker set up (6 speaker system) with the tweeters separate.I'll update after they are burned in. I will have to get a sub because the bass isn't the best. (They are connected to a Kenwood head unit.) Bottom line: Very satisfied with them.

Pros: Crisp, clear sound

Cons: Not to great bass. Will need a sub woofer in the very near future.

Quite an Upgrade

Christian F from Grove City, PA on 10/2/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought my Forester in desperate need of new speakers. The two back speakers were functional, but the two front speakers were blown. My car came with the base model stereo system which seems to have been pretty awful to begin with. Before I even got these speakers into the car I was impressed with them. They weigh about 5 times as much as my factory speakers. They have all metal frames, unlike the plastic ones that came out. They've been in the car for 2 months now, they sound absolutely fantastic. I have no subs or tweeters in my car and these speakers sound great across the whole spectrum. They can easily support the max volume on my head unit.

Pros: -Excellent quality across the whole spectrum -Feels well built overall

Cons: The wire connectors on the back are only supported on one side. The cable adapters were an extremely tight fit and it was hard to connect them without bending the supports for the terminals.

Installed these in my 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe, powered by a Rockford Fosgate Prime R400 4D amp. Easy install with Crutchfield kit. Sound great, handles what the RF puts out extremely well. Sound fantastic, sending the low base through the subs, and the rest of the signal through the Kickers. They have impressed me, especially at such a reasonable price tag.

Pros: Sound great. Have handled everything my amp has thrown at them. Highly recommend. Fantastic bang for the buck!!

I've been using these speakers in my truck for about two years now. I'm very impressed with these speakers for the price. They have adequate bass and sound great running off of the stock HU. Would recommend these to anyone, I've used more expensive Rockford's before and these are just as good in my opinion. Great buy. Also dealing with Crutchfield is always an added bonus. They're amazing!

The ones supplied from Crutchfield don't work for the front... For the 2016 Mazda 3 get the Metra 82-7501 Speaker Plates and Metra 72-5602 4-Way Speaker Harness made everything plug and play.

Pros: Awesome sound even at high volumes.

I had to replace the original speakers in my 2000 Tahoe. They were not blown but they were not great sounding either as far as 16 year old factory speakers were concerned. After upgrading the factory sub woofer (that were blown) it just made sense to upgrade the speakers. I heard good things about these Kickers when it came to price and performance but decided to replace just the front two speakers first. After listening to them I WILL be getting another set for the rear! I got a lot for my money. Note: Other retailers sell the exact same speakers for the exact same amount of money. However Crutchfield throw in free installation hardware as well. It's a no brainer. Crutchfield got this one hands down.

Pros: Great upgrade from stock.

Cons: None so far.

Tom M from Wayland, MA on 8/27/2016

1998 Volvo V70 GLT
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased these speakers to replace a blown left rear speaker and upgrade. The Kickers were well made, and I did not need any of the adapter kit parts except for eight common self-tapping screws. The Kickers had flanges that mounted directly into my OEM holders, with great help from the documentation. I was also able to effectively use the short cables with the Kickers to adapt the wiring directly to my Volvo holders with only 4 solder connections. The result uses the original Volvo cables and plugs, and sounds great with much better bass response than before. This made me very happy!

Pros: Very easy work to retrofit into existing Volvo rear door speaker holders, all results are compatible with existing wiring and fit and sound great.

Cons: I could have done the work without the adapter kit, but it was better to have it available just in case.

2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers are really amazing over the stock units that came in my 2013 Jeep Wrangler. Fairly easy install. I recommend doing a google search and watching one of the many video demonstrations for how this should be done. The sound bar replacement is a piece of cake. The dashboard is a bit more complicated. The Crutchfield instructions call for nearly a complicated full removal of the dashboard, which is absolutely not necessary. This install is much easier once you watch a few of the videos for how to remove the speaker boxes and re-use the gasket mount from the factory speaker. As others have mentioned, fill the boxes with a small amount of polyfil and you're going to be incredibly pleased with the sound. The difference is night and day.

Pros: Crisp sound. Much improved Bass. Beautiful Mids. Fairly easy Install.

Cons: Range of Bass is slightly limited, but still a vast improvement over stock. A lot of people add a separate sub and/or amp, which I have not done yet.

Daniel from Los Angeles, CA on 8/9/2016

2008 Honda Civic LX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After seeing how many reviews/how popular this product I really wanted to see for myself how these speakers sound. I went to Best Buy and saw these connected to a Pioneer deck (which I have). Out of all the 6.5" coxial speakers on display, which included Pioneer TS-A1675R, Alpine Type-S, and all other popular speakers within the price range.. the Kicker 40CS654 were the only speakers to handle adding bass boost even up to +6 on almost full volume! All the other speakers would distort after +2 bass boost, which really impressed me. After that experience, I decided to purchase them. I first purchased them on July 31st and the projected eta was Aug 4th. On Aug 1st, the UPS label was created.. but was stuck there and the package was not scanned.. on Aug 4th, the speakers were not delivered. I contacted Crutchfield customer service on Aug 5th telling them my situation and the associate gave me a new order with free overnight shipping.. which the next business day will be Aug 8th. That is so awesome of them! UPS label was created within the next hour, scanned, and delivered on Aug 8th. The old order is still in "created label"... Guess they never received it. I have a Pioneer DEH-X5800HD with no amp. These speakers sound great paired with them! I know they have to "break in" but they put out more bass than my Rockford Fosgate Prime R165X3's which they replaced. I will definitely put have another pair for the my rear deck. The tweeters are a bit harsh if

Pros: Good clarity, great bass (even with bass boost), great price, shallow size, and quality build. I know for sure these will sound very nice powered by an amp. I will most likely purchase an Alpine KTP-445U to power these bad boys.

Cons: Didn't buy these speakers to begin with.

Derrick from Columbus, OH on 7/15/2016

2002 Honda Civic LX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm very happy with this purchase. When paired with a powerful amp, these guys thump. The highs are crisp and the kick is powerful. The only area lacking would be in the lower bass. So there is definitely room for adding a sub in the mix. But if you are just looking for good sounding speakers to replace your factory set, this is a great way to go. Even when I've cranked the stereo, these speakers keep up. I'm constantly surprised how much power these guys can push. They really THUMP!

Pros: Great range of power. Can run directly off the OEM head unit, an aftermarket head unit or (to really release their full potential) a nice amp. Lots of head room so crank it up and enjoy the sound with the windows down.

Cons: Not as full range as I had hoped. The bass can be a bit weak. Requires really pushing the lower end of the EQ. I will probably be adding a sub to my setup sometime soon.

Connected to a Kenwood KDC-695 replacing the rear speakers only (so far). These speakers give amazing high range ( I had to lower the gain from +5 to +2) and decent mid range response! I am still tweeking the frequencies to get the illusive mid-bass I like to hear (more hopefully on that later.)

Pros: GREAT value for the money- especially with the (free) mounting braket and stock speaker wire harness adapter.

Cons: I haven't had the volume high enough long enough to see if they would 'break'. But Nothing bad to say so far.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I needed to replace the 22 year old factory cassette head unit in my work truck and figured while I was in there I might as well replace everything else. It was fairly easy to do following the included instructions. They are drilled for several mounting options, one door fit perfect on the first try the other I needed to try about every angle I could to get the holes to match up. User error but a strange problem considering the first side worked so well. They sound decent good clean highs the low end needs work but I am too lazy to put in a sub.

Pros: affordable, decent sound, easy to install.

Cons: not great low end but I knew that buying them.

Great Upgrade

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers have been a nice upgrade for the rear doors over the factory speakers, in my 2016 F150. Highs have been crisp and lows have had solid punch. The fit is perfect thanks to the free mounting brackets Crutchfield included with the order. I will soon be looking to add an amp to these and the front doors speakers to meet my sound quality needs, but these speakers are immediately a huge upgrade over factory.

Pros: Fit, Highs, Lows, Price

Cons: None

Great sound and hit so much harder than the factory speakers! Got rid of the tinny hollow sound and added some bass.

Pros: 300w= awesome

Cons: Can not use grills, without using the 4 outer mounting screws

These speakers are so much better than the stock Honda ones. The sound is crisp and clean, but the bass is not all there. Luckily I have a 2 12" kicker cvrs in the trunk so my system is complete. Can't get much better for the price than these. Highly recommend

Pros: Can really hear the lyrics better

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The speakers are excellent. They have great clarity, nice bass tones for 6 1/2" and I can hear every crisp note. The only complaint I have was the soldering on the connections were too much and I had to file them down a bit. Over all I love Crutchfield. Where else can you get a product for 1 price and everything you need to install it; directions and connectors for the money? This is an excellent company and I will be back! I highly recommend Crutchfield

Pros: Excellent Speakers for the price.

Cons: Little too much solder on the connectors and had to use file.

So far so good. Install needed minor mods to the plastic install bracket. The front side needed a mod to the OEM bracket. The sound is much better than stock. The stereo has not been replaced yet but that is next. The bass of these speakers is good. It adds that needed sound. I would buy them again.

Pros: Kicking bass

Cons: not a perfect fit but very minor mods

Amazing!

Bolted Right In With No Need for Adapters

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these for my 2006 Chevy Express full sized van and they are awesome. After upgrading my headunit to a Pioneer Bluetooth enabled unit the stock speakers always rattled. These solved the problem and have a much wider response. Also, they bolted right in without the need of adapters. I literally swapped both front door speakers in less than 30 minutes. I found an online video on how to remove the door panels which was pretty easy.

Mike from College Station, TX on 4/13/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am very happy with everything. The speakers were an upgrade from factory speakers. What an improvement! They were easy to install after looking at the information Crutchfield sent me. The free speaker mounting adapter made mounting the speakers a snap. One reviewer said the screws were too long and he was right. I cut them off and they worked great. After all, they came with the speakers, not the adapter! I looked at a you tube video on how to remove my door panel but it was not right. The information Crutchfield sent was right in every way! Some reviewers said there was not much bass, but it was at least as good if not better. The highs were much better. I wish I had don't this a long time ago! I will do business with Crutchfield again, they make it easy.

Pros: easy, improved sound.

Cons: none

Pros: The new upgraded speakers are amazing. Didn't know how bad factory installed speakers were until I put the Kickers in.

Cons: The only con was the glue on the old speakers. It was hard to remove from the plastic bracket. With perseverance I got it accomplished and the help of the one 800-number.

I was looking to just replace factory speakers, these do just fine with my after market HU. Bought another set to go in rear doors, that about rounds out the mids, just have to add my subs now. Other than that sound decent for their price, nothing fancy.

Pros: Price, sound decent after broke in. Probably sound even better amped.

Cons: Gotta have the fingers of a five year old to connect adapter wires to the speakers.
