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's 40CS674 speaker set provides low-end from a tough 6-3/4" 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.

Sound is so much better than stock speakers. Very happy ,would use again
Grate up grade sound is good
The sound is amazing over the stock speakers and customer service was excellent in recommending them over other speakers I was considering
This is not a good time to ask my opinion,but here goes ...1st the advisor & your web page & catalog all said these speakers would work with a 2001 Camaro convertible. With factory mono rec. Stereo. But 4 wires coming from stereo and only 2 from speakers.... Talked to technical support & he confirmed that these speakers won't work.said he would mail me return address label in mail b/c I don't have access to a printer right now 2 weeks later still no return labels.... Sent E-mail to customer service requesting a return label & they send me one by E-mail, so I'm going to find a way to some how print it off. As you can see my experience is and was not very pleasant. I guess this all falls under customer service.....Can't leave a favorable review & be honest as well...
Pros: None as of yet
Cons: Please read above...
Good upgrade from the factory speakers. The Crutchfield team does a good job making sure you get everything needed for the install.
Good speakers for the price I paid. Would have liked more bass, but not running an amp yet (OEM stereo only). I have these in the rear doors.
I searched the web before purchase. You can buy these speakers anywhere for the same price. But nowhere do you get the extras for those same dollars. The Crutchfield package is awesome! I purchased 2 sets (4 speakers) for my 2008 Chevy Silvarado. Installation could not have been easier with the add ons. The speaker brackets fit the doors exactly. The wire connectors required no crimping or soldering on either end. One end fit the speakers, one end plugged right into the factory wiring. I have not installed any stereo equipment since I was a kid in my first cars. Cars were much simpler then. The Crutchfield instructions were perfect and easy to follow to get all of my door panels off. But in the end it is the sound that matters. I had no clue how horrible my factory speakers sounded until I got these installed. WOW, I can drive around blasting the neighbors like the kids do. Stop surfing, these ARE the speakers you are looking for, and this IS the place to buy them
Great sound, Great value
Pros: Good speaker for the money well spent
I was a little concerned about how these would sound because they were so reasonably priced. I installed them in my Suburban rear doors that are powered with a factory amp. They sound great, no buzzing and they were super easy to install. Huge improvement over the paper speakers I replaced. Great service from Crutchfield as always, received my order freight free in 3 days. I recommend using the wire that comes with the speakers if your vehicle wiring has the standard size spades, the male connectors on the speakers are small.
Pros: Clean sound, reasonable price, easy installation, new wiring pigtails included.
Wow is all I can say. Installed these in a 2006 silverado ext cab. Bass bass bass... The OEM speakers were shot . These replacements are by far the best money I ever spent.I coupled these with the factory GM radio. Dont let GM delcos fool you. They pack a punch at about 15 watts I would say. I wanted to use the factory brackets but only 6 1/2's would work.You have to drill anyways so I made the 6 3/4s work. added weather stripping around the outside so no metal to metal contact.. The MasterSheet was a bit off for my year truck though to get the door panel off.
Pros: Not a lot of money. Great upgrade for a factory AC delco gm head unit.. Lots of bass.
Cons: None so far.
Great speakers for the price. The only problem I had with them, they don't seem to recreate bass too well.So, they might not be good for people who don't have a subwoofer to compensate for this . But if they're being run on a decent aftermarket head unit or an amp, They are great for people looking for loud and clear music.
Pros: Great highs output. When properly powered, they sounds amazing. And, they last a long time. I've yet to blow one out
Cons: The bass reproduction could be better if you're someone who isn't running subs. And the terminals on them are a little flimsy.
For the price a person cannot go wrong with these speakers. I swapped them out with the factory ones and the difference was amazing. Wished I had done this earlier.
Pros: Price Performance Installation
2016 accord sedan, install took about 30mins each door, stock speaker has better bass but kicker is more clear on voice, does not fit 100%, speaker has be installed on top of brackets which means you install include brackets to door then screw speakers onto top of bracket and door panels has quarter inch opening now due mount space.
Great replacement for factory speakers. Easy installation. Great sound!
I replaced the rear speakers in a 16' Civic LX with these and for the money, I wouldn't give them back. Powered by a 4-channel alpine amp, they compliment with the Infinity mid and tweeter package I put up front. Although I didn't do it, dynamat might be a good option in the back especially if you are going to run a sub. Crutchfield includes the harness and mounting adapters you will need.
Pros: Perfect speakers for the rear deck replacement.
Cons: None with the speakers, but Honda sure Doesn't make it easy to get the rear speakers out. Do your research or have them installed.
Excellent replacement speakers for factory. Installation was easy and straight forward. Dramatic difference in sound from what I had and at a very affordable price!
This product is awesome! Easy installation, great quality, and got them at a great price.
Wish I bought two sets of these vs. the other set vs. the other ones for the rear door that Crutchfield recommended. They sound great.
Cons: They do not seat with the brackets that Crutchfield provides
Sounds great in my honda civic
I've been enjoying these speakers for nearly 3 months and they are great. So much more bass and cleaner highs than the stock speakers that came with my Corolla. Installation materials from Crutchfield were top notch. I had no issues removing all the plastic panels to complete my installation. These are fabulous speakers, a night and day difference!
Pros: A good, solid speaker.
Great product outstanding upgrade for harley Davidson road glide works great with the pxa series amplifiers
Pros: Sound great easy install
Replaced the rear speakers in my 2014 Honda Accord LX with the Kickers. World of a difference in sound quality. The Kickers produce the perfect amount of bass and sound clarity that I needed. PS - Hats off to Crutchfield for their detailed Mastersheet. Was very useful.
Pros: Great sound for a great price.
Cons: None so far
Speakers sound good, but installation was far from an 'exact fit' for our 2010 Kia Sedona. I had to make extensive modifications to the existing brackets. Other than that, very happy with the speakers and the installation.
I had purchased four of these for the Misses Yukon, they sound a whole lot better then stock and I kept the Misses happy by not spending a whole lot of green$. The fronts went right in but the backs required some "customizing" to the plastic speaker mount. Pop out the three bolts holding the speaker mount fortunately I own a Roto Zip and trimming the unwanted plastic was easy. Very messy but easy, so do your "customizing" where it make sense. Also just to make things a bit more challenging, I always solder and heat shrink.
Pros: Nice sound.
Nice sound, easy to install. Straight bolt in.
Pros: Sound great
Cons: None yet
Speakers sound great. They are a little thin so the speakers cannot handle deep bass notes.
Cons: sound range
Great mid range speakers.
Pros: - I put two pair in my 2002 Tahoe. The ones in the back doors fit so well I was able to use the existing holes to mount these speakers. - I did have to drill holes for the front speakers and they worked fine. - The master sheet was helpful. - The added adapter wires that came with the speakers where great. No wire splicing needed at all. - I used the 6 3/4 inch XTC Speaker Baffles. I think they helped.
Cons: - None so far after two weeks of use.
Great speakers fit perfectly in my 06 civic coupe ex
Pros: Sound amazing,perfect fit no modifications needed.
great sounding speakers, WAY better than OEM, still using factory head unit, the installation was easy with the free add ons
Pros: clear sound, good bass
Cons: none yet
Made a WORLD of difference on the OEM system. First upgrade I've done with huge impact. I now realize I've heard only half the music for the length of time I've owned my vehicle. Can hear all the details and much richer sound across the audio spectrum.
Pros: * great upgrade to stock speakers * wide range of input power. Planning to do more upgrades down the line with a head unit and amp. Won't have to touch these again!
Cons: * packaged screws a bit small in diameter for my application. Not Kicker's fault, but you may need to supply your own, depending on how you are mounting these.
Great speakers. Sound great for stock head. The speakers in my Silverado stopped working. These were a perfect swap. Crutchfield gave the brackets and wire adaptor and this was a piece of cake. Thanks for great service....
Pros: Easy install Sound great
I installed these in a Kia Cerato hatchback (Forte 5 in the US). They gave a big improvement in the sound but the original stereo does not have enough power to give any substantial bass through these speakers. You definitely need a sub for this or an external amplifier. Installation was easy using the brackets supplied by Crutchfield and door panel removal tools obtained from a major online retailer. One challenge for do-it-yourself people is figuring out the positive and negative wires from the stereo. You can do this by taking the old speaker and connecting its terminals to a 1.5V D size battery. If you connect the battery's positive to the speaker's positive, the speaker will push out. If it's reversed, the speaker will suck in.
Pros: Improved clarity
Cons: Still not enough bass
I like the sound of my new speakers had to modify the mounts for the speakers. Which wasn't a problem but the rear speakers were a little to big with the mounts. Could only get 1 1/2 mounting bolts in to secure them in the car. But I am ok with that they are not going anywhere.
Pros: Great sound
Cons: Little to big for the rear
These were bought to replace my factory Nissan rear speakers. I replaced the head unit a year ago and since then, my rear speakers had no output. I thought that the speakers might be bad as I had ran the wire from the speaker directly to the unit bypassing the factory wire all together and still received no output. After installing the new speakers, I still had no output. I began playing around with some of the settings, and lo and behold, I got sound. The sound I do have is VERY clear and rich. I like these speakers a lot and will be purchasing another set to replace the front factory speakers.
Pros: Great sound! Clear and very RICH!
Cons: The speaker connectors are difficult to attach wire connectors too.
As a stock replacement these speakers are just OK. Considering two speakers in the burb were not working it is great to have sound again. They were on sale but I should have stuck with Polk (I love Polk speakers and use them in my other vehicles but this is a utility burb so I went cheap). These kickers are OK but there is hardly any bass even with speaker bass cranked way up (as per other reviews). The mids and highs are OK but sound a bit hollow. If these had more bass I would have given them 4 stars. You will need to drill new holes for these speakers as they do not have the same screw pattern as the '99 burb (and the universal adapter was useless). If you are set on buying them, buy them on sale.
Pros: They work fine. Mids and highs are ok. Price at Crutchfield was OK.
Cons: Lack of bass. Installation required modification of doors.
Nice speakers, great bass and highs
Put these speakers in my pickup a few weeks ago, and am VERY impressed with the great sound these Kickers produce! I was a little reluctant before purchasing, mainly due to thinking I was going to have a low-end speaker for the price, with low-end sound. I could not have been more wrong If you're on the fence like I was, buy them, you'll be glad you did ??
Pros: Great sound for the price point.
Cons: None, sounded better than expected!
So the reviews all indicate that these Kicker speakers are a perfect OEM replacement. I can tell you that they are Not! Even with the stock speakers being completely blown (paper diagram was non-existent) they were better and could handle the stock head unit's power better than these. Maybe it is due to the shallow design of these Kicker speakers but sound and bass were nothing compared to the OEM ones. I am very disappointed, first at me for believing the reviews (both here and on another site) and second for a product that touts itself as a manufacturer of quality speakers. If the OEM speakers were not in such bad condition, I would have just put them back and returned these things. Low range is OK and maybe the speakers are a little clearer, but I was hoping for better bass and more sound differentiation. Sad product. Crutchfield was great. Oh, and don't believe the installation videos, you can install these on a GMC/Chevy 2007 and up rear door without removing the electrical window switches and door cables. With some simple manipulation of your hands and tools you can install by just popping the door panel off and work around the cabling.
Pros: Easy install, thanks to Crutchfield, slim design. Took me less than 10 minutes a door.
Cons: Terrible bass pickup, mid and low range is bearable. You get what you pay for. Shame on Kicker for indicating these are as good if not better than stock.
These speakers are a great deal. They have excellent mids and highs. I used them with my stock radio and then upgraded my stereo and they sound great with a little power behind them. They work great with my sub because the mids and highs are crystal clear
Decent sounding speakers. Not the best, but for $79/pr., they're still much better than the original speakers that came with the truck.
Great, easy upgrade from stock for not a lot of money
Pros: Easy install, big improvement
Amazing sound, hookup was simple and easy.
I noticed a huge upgrade in sound quality when I replaced my factory speakers with the Kicker speakers. The factory speakers weren't even that old, but the difference was drastic. I haven't even attached my amplifier yet and these speakers sound great. Crutchfield sent me everything I needed to easily install these in the Front and Rear doors of my car. Great buy! Would definitely recommend both these speakers and Crutchfield as the place to go to buy audio equipment.
Pros: great sound; easy install; incredible volume (with or without amplifier)
Cons: No complaints yet.
Everything there that I needed-easy install!!
Little modifications for a perfect fit. There was plenty of room in my car for these speakers... no problems!
Pros: Crisp, clean Sound
Cons: None yet
A nice replacement for the junky factory front-door speakers. The mounting holes on the speakers, are close, but they do not quite match up with the vehicle's screw holes and some small flat washers needed to be added.
Pros: Sound good, low cost.
Cons: Fit is a tad off for my vehicle.. You can't use the O mounting holes, you must use the U mounting holes but the screws are at the very outer edge of the holes.
Such smal speakers but they pack a punch. Not even turned up half way me people next to me at lights roll their windows up haha. Love these.
Cons: Couldn't use the face plate in my door:(
The door speakers in my 2005 Saab blew a while ago and I have been looking around for some replacements. With Crutchfield's online speaker finder, I was able several options. The factory installed system in the Saab had 13 speakers and I wanted new speakers for the door to play well with the others. A chat with Crutchfield's tech support helped tremendously in selection and with the tools I needed to do the replacement myself. I undertook the project and was amazed that I actually made it work, in only an hour. The sound - spectacular! They play well with the system. Big thanks to Crutchfield for steering me in the right direction and saving me significant dollars in having the auto shop do it.
Pros: They play well with existing system; Great Sound; All parts necessary included; Tool list provided (by Crutchfield)
Cons: I waited too long to purchase
These are great speakers for the money. This is the second set I've purchased and I've been really happy with the performance at this price point. From a sound perspective, they are very clear, bright and accurate. They are also very efficient and produce plenty of volume using just the power from the receiver. The speaker components are solid and the magnets are hefty. I'm planning on buying another set soon
Pros: Clear, bright and accurate Great performance at a good price point Very efficient
Awesome addition to my stock stereo!
Pros: Decent base, good sound, good price
For a stock replacement speaker in my 2006 SILVERADO,these Kickers were Okay. They do Not have enough Bass for me. The Mid Range is strong in them. The Highs are decent. These are speakers are acceptable, however , if I were ever to do have to replace them I would go with a different pair of speakers.
Pros: Highs and Mid- Range is "OK"
Cons: Not quite enough Bass for me.
i want to give a big thanks to Garrett,,he was very help full,,very knowledgeable,,i will be buying other goody's in the future
Pros: great price,,20 minute job,,the speakers sound great,,,perfect for the price,, you cant go wrong,,,Kudos you guys
Cons: nooooooo connssssss
Easy to install and they sound great!
I bought these speakers to replace the stock speakers in the front doors of my 2009 Chevy Express Van. I installed them myself using the included hardware and it took under 1/2 hour. The difference in sound from stock to these is awesome. These are not extreme bass pounding speakers but they are all-around very nice speakers. I am still using my stock head unit with no amp and my van is now rocking.
Pros: Nice price point, great sound, easy to install with Crutchfield's included hardware
Cons: Not a ton of bass but still great sound
Great speakers, they can handle the power of my pioneer headset without any destortion. Good sound for the money.
Pros: Easy install, good sound
Cons: Bass is not as much as I expected, but they are 6.75" speakers.
This is an amazing product , talk about an over achiever . I thought this would be ok , and maybe down the road but some other speakers . After all the pair is cheaper than one or not even half the price . The old saying is you get what you pay for . In this case I really got a great speaker at a price you wouldn't think they could possibly be this good . Talking to the sales person he said you will be surprised , he should have said shocked . They made my factory system sound awesome , don't be afraid for the price , just smile and rock
Pros: Terrific price and performance. These sales people know there products
Cons: Cons , ,,,,,box could have been better , cannot think of any cons !!
Easy install, nice bright sound, Quick and professional service, and great instructions. Great speakers for under $100. So, so on bass but you don't buy 6in. speakers for the bass. I'd buy them again.
Pros: Clean and clear sound. Easy install
Cons: Not yet.
Installed 4 of the kicker cs speakers in my 2002 chevy tracker they where super easy to install and sound great only getting 14rms from my new headunit when theyre rated up to 100rms i believe. The crutchfield adapters arent the best sometimes the speakers get a weak signal and cut out so i have to remove the door and reconnect them but thats the only problem i had
Pros: Sound good even on 14rms Great base Easy to install Durable Alot cheaper than jl
Cons: Lose connection from weak connector adapters
So far so good. Hard to tell much of a difference. Will eventually get an amp which should really let me hear what these are made of. Stock head unit just doesn't put out enough power.
I selected these to go with the stock head unit, a move that is arguably marginal. The decision was based on wanting to upgrade step by step if so desired and these speakers seemed to be rather efficient given their size and performance. With the Crutchfield adapters, they were easy to deal with and most important, the sound is way better than the stock Subaru speakers. These were used in the front only. Very satisfied.
Pros: Good bang for the buck.
Cons: Might not have the clarity and range of some higher end speakers that would take more power to drive them.
Pros: Easy to install , sound clarity is much better than stock
Easy install, 1st time ever installing speakers in a truck. YouTube helped a little also.
Pros: Hook right up with harness provided.
Cons: Wire clamps are very tight and hard to put on, but they won't be coming off anytime soon.
Love these speakers. They work great, sound great
Pros: Easy to install - all 4 doors in an hour,
Cons: Didn't have quite the lower end my factory speakers did, but I guess that can be accommodated with another upgrade under the back seat
The new speakers sound awesome! The installation was a bit more difficult than I figured that it would be. These speakers are just slightly larger in diameter than the OEM speakers. In light of that, I had to trim the OEM ABS plastic speaker mounting plate to a slightly larger diameter.
Awesome set of speakers, easy installation and great sound. So much better than stock equipment
Pros: easy to install, great sound.
Great speakers. for the front doors. Everything sounds great through them
Pros: Great sound easy installation
Simple speaker replacement. Finally replace the OEM equipment. Nice sound. Much higher quality than original equipment.
Pros: Easy to install, great sound quality. Comes with removable grilles for mounting in original location or anywhere.
100% improvement over factory speakers, installation was very easy and the harness that Crutchfield supplied worked perfectly without cutting and splicing speaker wires! I plan on installing an amp soon and will definitely buy from Crutchfield!
Pros: Easy installation, excellent sounding speakers!
Sounds great with my Kenwood head unit. Much better sound than stock speakers. Excellent highs
Pros: Direct fit, excellent sound, better bass
Good speakers. ..replacement for factory speakers. ..sounds great! !
I put these in all 4 doors of my Access Cab Tundra, and was so impressed with their sound. I used a Clairion head unit and added the Alpine 4x45 amplifier. The head unit and amp are impressive. Maybe I stretched out the ability of these Kicker speakers, but 2 of them, are distorted and playing poorly at low volume levels now. Of course they played amazingly for like 18 months...but now...time for new ones since they sound horrible. Maybe I will upgrade to a component setup for the front doors, and add a powered subwoofer. Still very happy with the head unit though!
I have had Kicker speakers in the past and for an entry level replacement speaker it is better than what I had, which on one side was nothing
Pros: For the price worth it
Cons: none really, for what I spent and for ease of install
Sound awesome; easy to install even for a novice like me.
Pros: Sound quality is so much better than the factory speakers.
Have these in my front doors and they are awesome! The sound quality is superb, and very loud. Can't think of one single bad thing to say about these speakers. Definitely a major upgrade form the stock speakers in my 02 KIA Optima.
Pros: Rich, deep bass and clear loud treble
went in my 2011 Silverado great sounding speaker
Cons: had to modify speaker brackets by cutting of the tabs then speaker sat flush on bracket drill new holes at 12-3-6-9
These were purchased for an older mazda miata I knew going in I would need to modify a mounting bracket. I just used the old speaker housing and it worked great. Speakers sound great.
Buying a pair of these was 150% worth while. These are all-around great speakers. They give me my music with no effort and problems. And they are very much affordable.
Pros: All-Around Great Speakers
Vastly superior to the stock speakers I had in my car. I don't know if I even want a sub anymore after installing these. Unless you're looking for that monster bass
Pros: Good mids and lows
Cons: Didn't get to install speaker covers in my install.
LIVE TECH SUPPORT ROCKS
My rear Silverado speakers were very weak, I need to adjust the stings so almost all sound is coming from the rear to hear them. The Crutchfield rep said these new kickers would help. They did not. They do have a little better sound then the stock speakers.
Cons: Door panel removal instructions were not very good-had a horrible time reassembling. Speaker mounting did not have any instructions.Crutchfield response on February 1, 2016 Whenever you encounter a problem with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, especially a situation like this, please contact our tech support team right away. They can help you solve the problem or set up a return within 60 days of purchase. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
Went in a 2005 Tundra. Sounds great. Amazing value
Pros: Price, ease of installation
These car speakers are awesome. The sound quality is like no others. Easy to install these speakers with all the directions easy to read.
Pros: Ez to install
Cons: I learned that it's ez to put a screwdriver through it, lol
I got these to replace the stock speakers in my 2001 Altima as they were pretty well shot. Even without tweaking the EQ they sounded killer right away. Then with a little bit of EQ tweaking they sounded INCREDIBLE. Really killer sound for a reasonable price.
Pros: Sound quality, look cool I guess, not really sure what else to say. Really tight bass response, crisp highs, balanced mids, absolutely no complaints.
Cons: Can't really think of any.
Very easy to install and great upgrade option if using OEM head unit.
Pros: Shallow mounting depth.
The kicker speakers were easy to installed and they have a better sound than the O.E.M. speakers that GM uses on the 2007 Tahoe.
Pros: Direct fit with the installation kit that Crutchfield provides made it easy to install.
Cons: Had to modify the speaker brackets
The kicker replacement speakers I installed in my 2002 GMC Sierra are awesome. Instantly improved the sound by 100 in my opinion. Not sure why I waited so long to change them out.
Pros: Very clear , crisp sound without upgrading the factory cd player
Cons: The 6 3/4 fits the factory hole, but not 100% flush.
Sounds better than my truck ever has. Now I guess it's time to change the stereo!
Pros: Great sound.
Cons: The clips to install these in the front door are garbage.
Great sound and quality, expect nothing less from Kicker!
Pros: Clear sound, perfect fit, easy install and sounds so much better than factory.
Cons: Absolutely none.
The speakers pope right in Mt GMC SIERRA with the brackets provided
Excellent sound and quality highly recommended
Pros: Great sound tough speakers
Another great product from Kicker, awesome sound !!!!!
Pros: Exact fit, sounds awesome.
Front passenger factory speaker was blown out. No adapter kit available for Kicker. Original speaker was JBL 7". Had to cut out JBL metal frame on factory speaker and use it as adapter. Screwed Kicker to JBL frame and remounted to door.
Pros: Sound quality is good. Only using it for base on my unit.
Great speakers at a great price !
Pros: Easy fit and great sound.
Cons: Not replacing old speakers sooner.
I needed to replace a blown factory speaker in my Chevy Duramax. I purchased these and they were easy to install, great sound for the money.
Pros: Great sound for the money. Crisp/clean sound. Very pleased with the sound range at high and low volume.
Replaced the OEM speakers in the front and rear doors of my 1998 GMC Jimmy with these Kicker 40CS674's. The old speakers were dried up and shot. These are of much better quality than the OEM's and they sound great. The fit was very good using the original mounting brackets, and I only had to re-drill new mounting holes. They have much more base than the OEM's. Crutchfield was great to work with, and their support was extremely helpful.
Pros: Great OEM replacements!
These tese kicker speakers are sweet i had a pair for my chevy 2004 silverado. Had to get them for my 2008 silverado crewcab....
Pros: Very easy to install....
The package was very well packed with shipping peanuts to protect them. Initially one of the boxes was a little rough around the edges but the product itself was perfectly clean. The look was very nice and the materials are really nice. The speaker just already feels more powerful. Now install time, my sets came with a wiring harness included to easy connect to a GMC harness which made these a drop in replacement. No alterations needed. After installing them the year leafy had much crisper highs and deeper lows. I recommend running them in for at least a week to a month before really blasting them so they can loosen up and reach peak performance. These speakers alone give a good a good shaking basson the stock receiver so having an aftermarket one will really get you going. These are fully reccomended, well worth the price for starter after market speakers. If you can afford find some 3-way speakers to get better mid range but these are a great upgrade over stock.
Pros: Good materials, look great, materials are solid and has a large magnet, dropped right in with no extra work, POWERRRRR. Can't go wrong with kicker.
Arrived on time in perfect condition. Very easy install with no mods required to rear doors on my 2001 Suburban. Only issue was getting the old speakers out. After removing the screws, I needed to use a putty knife to pry the old factory speakers out of their enclosures due to some contact adhesive holding them in.
Pros: Good lows and a nice match to the newer Polk db651's up front which have less base but sweet highs.
Cons: Wish they went on sale sooner!
Easy to install and hey sound great. These were recommended by Crutchfield advisor Norm for my 02 GMC crew cab.
Pros: Great sound
Great product, price, and ship time. These speakers are great with awesome treble and bass. They arrived within 2 days of purchase with door plates and speaker adapters. Also my installation was simple due to the instructions for install provided via email in PDF format. Anyone that complains about Crutchfield are just knit picking . This is a great company that provided everything needed for install. They also notified me via text when my package was delivered. I'll be back for sure. Thumbs up Crutchfield and Thank You.
Pros: 300 watts,price, and ship time.
Cons: None at all
Best option for a fair price to replace sub standard factory speakers. Easy installation, the sound from these speakers is excellent. I re-used the brackets that held the original factory speakers.
Pros: Easy installation and superior sound
Cons: none so far
Nice set of speakers. I thought I had a premium factory system but the speakers were junk. Video and application paper work made me decide to try and do it myself.
Pros: Good sound, poly Baffle in case any condensation or moisture got on them.
These speakers look and sound great. Great value for the price, and even better that they were on sale when I ordered them. They have plenty of mounting holes along the outside of the speaker to get them to line up to the factory holes on ur vehicle. Ive always liked Kicker products and they still continue to make great products after all these years.
Pros: Nice quality, sound great, easy to install.
Great fit for the car (a '96 Saturn SL1); straight-forward to install (thanks, Cruchfield, for the detailed instructions and connector kits), good sound. My daughter is very happy with the results.
Pros: Good fit, custom connectors a plus
Cons: clips that came with the speakers were not a good/useful replacement for the original car bracket/clips
Awesome sound quality, great price. No negatives about it.
Nice upgrade to the factory speakers. Really easy install w/included instructions
Pros: Cost, easy install, great sound
Overall the install was a great experience. I can remember when I was younger, installing speakers and radios was an nightmare. All the new helpful brackets and wiring harnesses made things a lot more pleasant. The only beef I have is one pair of my speaker adaptors were broken, but with all that night mare experience I have accumulated over the rough years, I just glued them bad boys back together and put them in any way. One day I might get a tuner to go with the new speakers and maybe I might even get an amp to push a little more bass. but for now I am pleased with everything accept the brackets being broken. Probably happened during shipping I'm sure. Just make sure you check all your components for damage before you begin your install.
Pros: Easy as pie install
Cons: Damaged goods
I purchased these to replace the factory speakers in my ride. These new speakers will crank out great sound down low or at maximum volume. I was overdue for a new sound system and these fit right in at a very reasonable price point!
The speakers were very easy to install and they sound great
Pros: all the holes line up and the wiring indicators for positive and negative are marked
Cons: Had to remove the wiring plug in from the original speakers and solder them to the leads to the new speakers. the problem was that the wiring plug did not have the positive and negative marked so you have to go to the wiring in the car and figure out which one is which
all the products were great. The front adapters fit ok when you used the Boom Mat Speaker Baffles, otherwise they would not have been as tight to the trim. The 6 3/4 did not fit in the original holes, I had to drill some extras. The rears speakers didn't have adapters. I cut out the old speaker and used the original Gm bracket. They fit to tight with the Boom Mats. But with a sharp knife and some cutting and drilling of new holes they fit pretty good. If you do this , check YouTube for hints and keep some 1/2 foam door gasket stuff around. All in all, I am very happy the way these Kickers have made my original radio sound. I would do it again.
Pros: great sound for the money
Cons: did not fit as easy as they made it sound, but not to bad.
Everything worked and sounds great!!
Pros: Great sound
great sound, easy stock replacement
These speakers sound great and will handle all the power I will be giving them.
Speakers worked out well. Easy to install and really sound good in the 4Runner with Pioneer AV 2400 and stock JBL amp.
Pros: Good sound and easy installation.
Unfortunately didn't work good for my cadillac seville STS that has bose system. I purchased before knowing I needed a 2 ohm Speaker.. But installed in in Wifeys Suzuki and they sound great
Installed in 03 Chevy Suburban. Very easy install and pleased with the quality of this speaker. Would recommend for Do-It-Yourself type.
Pros: Easy Install Very good quality speaker for the $$$$ Quick delivery as was promised.
Very good value, terrific sound. Installation manual very helpful.
Pros: Makes my wife's car sound better than new.....
Cons: They did not install them selves, required a little of my time.....
Great sound, great price, perfect final product for complete new stereo install in my vehicle.
Pros: Sound, price, Kicker Quality & Crutchfield Support
Cons: Mounting brackets supplied by Crutchfield had to be slightly modified to align with the mounting holes in my vehicle and to route the speaker wire. Simple to do with a drill and a round file.
I bought these speakers to replace my factory door speakers which where JBLs. These sound just as good to my ears...with quite a bit of bass and clear and crisp highs. Two things really made this purchase great: 1) Crutchfield knew which adapter I needed for my car and sent that free with the speakers, and 2) they e-mailed installation instructions to me soon after my purchase. It was nice to be able to plan ahead and know what I needed to do and what tools I needed for removal and re-installation of my door panels.
Pros: - Hard to beat the price for the sound quality - Installation instructions and adaptors where sent free-of-charge
Cons: - None
Noticed an improvement over OEM miata speakers. My OEM, front speakers, were still working. However, I needed a minor speaker upgrade. The kicker's did the job, it's much louder with clearer sound. BTW, the Kicker's were driven by my Head unit an AMP would surely maximize it's true potential.
Pros: Plenty of power for everyday listening, but don't expect any decent bass. You need a sub & AMP for that.
Cons: I had to drill 1 hole on each speaker to avoid drilling the door. No big deal it was worth it.
These Kicker 40CS674 speakers were a perfect fit for my Chevy Avalanche, and sound great. I am very happy with my purchase.
Pros: Low cost, sound great, perfect fit for my vehicle.
Speakers sound great, huge upgrade over OEM
Great sound at a low price. Works great right out of the box
Pros: Easy to install. Came with all gear needed
Cons: Had to mod clips to fit my Trans Am.
Great replacement for blown out oem speakers. Sound is far better than the originals. Only VERY slight mods to fit properly
Pros: Great sound, great fit, easy installation.
Crutchfield is the best online site for stereo equipment.
Pros: Great upgrade from factory in my 2000 toyota tundra access cab
Very Happy with these speakers. I upgraded from factory speakers to this set. Happy with the purchase.
Pros: Quality sound
great sound and quality for the price
Pros: easy install
Great sound for a great price. Easy modifications to the mounting brackets and included plug n play wiring harness. Fast free shipping.
Pros: Great price, great sound, fast shipping, easy to install.
Cons: Can't think of any at this time.
Great sounding speakers. These replaced my stock speakers and sound a whole better. Much cleaner sound and good bass.
Pros: Sound great!
Good Speaker for the price. I had no trouble hooking these up. Shipping was a little slow.
Pros: great sound for a great price
Cons: shipping was very slow
Used these to change out rattling stock speakers in the rear deck of my 1997 Mercedes E320. The fit was perfect but the instructions missed a minor detail about how to remove the back head rests - they were saying push them out with lots of force but the correct way is to pull the black tab to the front of the vehicle and it come out like jelly (after almost giving up 'cause that thing couldn't come out even with a crow bar). The sound quality is a definite upgrade. This added to the overall component system makes me feel good. Good top end clarity. Speaker technology has really developed over the past few decades. Now I need some low volume bass kick so I'll try a compact subwoofer and figure out where it will fit. Crutchfield is very good with customer service. Cutting edge company. Tech folks are knowledgeable and shipping is fast. Overall good experience.
Pros: Good clarity and top to mid quality
Cons: Nothing yet
Nice sound, crisp bass and easy install.
Pros: Came with everything needed. Very good sound, nice price
These speakers are wonderful compared to my stock speakers. I'm completely happy with this purchase.
Pros: I love every aspect of it
Cons: Nothing comes to mind
These speakers were exactly as advertised, and easy to install. Perfect for changing out the factory speakers in a 99 Chevy Tahoe.
Pros: Easy to read instructions, easy to install.
One of my rear speakers broke in my 2012 Elantra and I knew the best place to go was Crutchfield.com. Using the fit guide and reviews, I selected the Kickers as a replacement set. The installation presented some challenges, as the installation instructions didn't state clearly the I would have to modify the speaker brackets; so I would encourage Crutchfield to consider updating its instructions. Once I got the speakers installed and fired up Rush's "Permanent Waves", I could tell the speakers were well worth the effort! Bass is much stronger and clean, and overall sound is significantly better than the factory speakers. My only problem now is that I guess I will have to replace the front set. ;-)
Pros: Strong bass. Crutchfield tech support.
Cons: Installation instructions could have been a little more clear. I had to call Crutchfield support twice to seek clarification.
Installed in my Chevy with ease, improved factory Bose system so that sound is more clean and crisp. Wishing I would have done this sooner!
Pros: Great sound at a great price. Easy install.
Fits perfectly, install was easy and sound was 100% better than stock speakers.
Pros: Easy install
I installed these as replacement speakers for my 2006 GMC truck doors. Installation was simple and the included bracket worked perfectly. Sound is clear and crisp.
Pros: Good clean sound, easy installation with provided harnesses and brackets.
Used these to replace the door speakers in my 91 Miata. Very easy installation only required minor modification (one hole). I don't do any critical listening in my car so I'm not going to demand much from the sound system. . these do the job well. The install kit with the wiring harness was very helpful.
Pros: Easy install. Good sound.
Needed a power pack to my unit to really appreciate the sound of this speakers. They sound really good.!
Pros: Overall very nice sound.
Cons: Zero, nada.
These speakers are terrible. They sound distorted at higher volumes. I regret taking my pioneers out for these kickers.

Initially I just wanted to replace 2 blown factory door speakers, then I installed these & had to purchase 2 more Kickers for the other doors...Then a new HU...Then a powered sub. Now I'm completely overjoyed with my sound. These babies rock! Loud & Soft & crystal clear, I'm hearing lyrics & percussions in songs that I've never heard before, awesome! Of course you can find a better speaker...but you're gonna have to pay buttloads more!!! Bottom line, you WILL love these, you may or may not need a sub to complete the bottom end, & once you DO get the sub, welcome to LaLa-Land baby!
Pros: Crisp, clean, & punchy mids thru highs. Flat tweeter profile accommodates most
Cons: Not really any with the speaker itself. I had to fabricate a harness out of sheet metal to fit my factory bracket.
Nice speakers for the money. Factory speakers were junk. These were a nice upgrade, while I am still using factory head unit.
Pros: Good sound with factory head unit.
Very nice speakers!
Pros: Deep bass and easy to install.
The speakers have very clean and loud sound, much better than the stock speakers. The bass is much weaker than the stock speakers, but with a small amp in sure that can be fixed. I was hoping for more bass from a company that started with subwoofers.
Pros: Very clear sound, louder than stock speakers
Cons: Even with the bass turned up on the equalizer they are still lacking in bass. Might be fixed with an amp, but that is additional $$
Great speakers. Great sound.
Pros: They were so easy to install. I watched the video and then was able to put them in.
Cons: I can't think of any.
Caribbean Jimmy Very good speaker with good bass. Fit exactly in the Suzuki Vitara 2001 front doors (of 4 doors). The connectors were somewhat difficult to attach to the speaker harness. I expand the harness female connector by the fear of bent the speaker male connector. The sound, great. These speaker replace two non-working original. Now I have two doors that rumble.
Pros: Clear sound, with strong bass and an exact fit.
Cons: Non really!
Solid speakers. Certainly an upgrade over the speakers in my 2001 Silverado.
Pros: Good sound for inexpensive speakers
Them some pretty good.
Great sounding speakers. Increased the bass and loudness in my car alot.
Pros: Clear sound, loud, nice bass
Cons: None that I've found
It sounds awesome
Pros: Love it
Good Speakers. Much better than the set they replaced.
Pros: Sounds good. Easy to install as long as you've got proper speaker adapters.
Cons: No cons that I can think of at this time.
Good for the price. Good mids and highs.
This was my first car audio install and I must say, overall I am very pleased with the quality of these speakers for the price.
Pros: Easy installation and good quality sound.
Cons: No complaints here.
Good sound at a good price.
Sound great over the stock speakers in my sequoia. Great detailed install instructions from the crutch field team.
Pros: Great price. Sound crisp and clear.
Nice upgrade from the factory speakers, but nothing to write home about.
I was looking to improve the sound of my factory stereo in my company van and can't make major changes. A Crutchfield member recommended the Kickers. With just a slight pull back of the door panel I was able to swap them out. The sound great even-though I didn't add an Amp.
Pros: Fit right in and sound great.
These speakers are quite good for the price. They have accurate highs and lows and even though it is not a component system, the crossover doesn't seem to be too bad. That being said, you will need an amplifier in order to truly hear and feel what these speakers can do. For general listening purposes, hooking these up to a stock radio is a good choice, but their are cheaper options than these speakers. Their value truly lies in how much you can push them and their potential for upgrade ability. I am currently only powering these speakers with a Kenwood receiver that gives each speaker 22 watts RMS, so it begins to approach the optimal power of the speakers, but it really needs more for the mid-bass notes. These speakers look good, sound good, and have tons of room for a power upgrade.
Pros: Clean sound Allows for powering up your system Looks good Good price
Cons: A somewhat low sensitivity Not as efficient as other speakers around the same price Needs an amplifier to truly wake up the system (this is only because I love bass and is not a direct fault of the speakers)
On the recommendation of a crutchfield adviser, I replaced all of the door speakers with these kicker 40CS674. I kept the factory stereo and have no amp on these and they sound beautiful! The improvement over stock is well worth the price of these kickers. The bass for my system is handled by 2 - JL Audio 10W0v3-4 Subs n a Sound Ordnance Bass Bunker Sealed dual 10" subwoofer enclosure powered by the Rockford Fosgate R500X1D Prime Series mono subwoofer amplifier. For a system that keeps the factory stereo, I think it sounds amazing.
Pros: Nice mids and highs Very efficient Great factory speaker upgrade
Great speakers for the price. Great sound quality
When looking for speakers, pay attention to the Frequency Response range listed in the SPECIFICATIONS tab. This one goes all the way down to 45 Hertz. The lower the low end of the range is, the more bass. Don't expect massive bass with these of course, they're not subs. Paired with my Alpine HU and the Alpine Power Pack, it works really well for my taste. (And it really is a matter of taste with sound right. Mine does not involve rattling license plates or dimming headlights that then require a capacitor between your battery and the amps and the...ahh, reminiscing my high school years.)
Pros: Good fidelity for the price. Compared to the Alpine SPR-60's (which I had in my truck first), I preferred these Kickers more again due to the lower end frequency range.
Cons: Be aware that if you specifically have a 1998 4Runner, the screw holes on these speakers won't align with the screw holes on the factory speaker assembly where this attaches to. This is also the case with the SPR-60's so it's not a speaker issue but more the age of the vehicle. They can't accomodate all the radius measurements across all years of vehicles so it's a matter of demand and supply. No prob tho, I used screws with a wide head to hold them firm.
Overall the speakers sound great. If your looking for stock replacement speakers this is it. Watching Utube videos on removing the door panel is the way to go and installing the new speakers. Take your time on doing the work and it will turn out very well.
