Price Break: -$50.00
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 40CSS674 component 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 separate 3/4" titanium dome tweeter takes care of the vocal and instrumental details that'll really bring your music to life. The outboard crossover network allows you to pick from three different tweeter level settings so you'll get balanced sound wherever you're sitting. Grilles are included.
Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

Average Customer Review(s):
Great entry level component system. Sounds fine with stock amp
Pros: Cost, sound quality
Very satisfied with sound quality, installation and mounting options.
Pros: Crisp clean sound. Easy install.
The quality is amazing, I've heard about Kicker but I'm in love whit the sound quality.
Fit was great and the sound is super! It works great with the factory unit.
Pros: Works great!
The speakers are reasonably accurate, a bit bright, but my beef is the bass response. 35 hz is very generous, it's more like 45 or 50 Hz. What's annoying is I would've bought a more expensive speaker if I'd known the specs were inaccurate. This is not Crutchfield's fault as Crutchfield reports the manufacturer's specs.
Pros: Clear sound.
Cons: Limited bass response.Crutchfield response on 8/2/2017 Jim, we're sorry you're disappointed with your speakers. Whenever you are not completely satisfied with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, please contact our Customer Support team at 1-800-955-9091. Purchases from Crutchfield can be returned or exchanged within 60 days of the purchase.
Relatively simple to put in with just a few wires to cut. My door required slight modification but I got them to work. I hear a slight fuzz from the tweeter every now and then when listening to music but I can't tell if it is the speaker itself causing the issue or the wiring in my car since my stock Bose speakers did it as well.
Pros: Solid clear sound
Cons: Wish there was a bit more punch to it
I replaced the factory speakers in 2013 Corolla with Kicker 2 way speaker initially then switched to this component version and also added kenwood amp. These are amazing. It can also produce lows without problem. I wish crossover is inline or small to save space and avoid drilling and mounting inside the door panel. Tweeters were heavy for the size and sounds very good. Installed the tweeters in the sail panel where factory tweeters were but had to drill a hole to flush mount the tweeters.
Pros: Great sound, able to produce lows
Cons: Crossover is big, tweeters are big
Awesome sound. A major step up from the factory speakers.
Simply excellent. The sound quality is way beyond what I expected for speakers in this price range.
Pros: Sounds great.
Cons: Difficult to install the tweeters.
They are very good speakers.
Easy installation and these speakers sound amazing for the price.
Pros: Great fitment and amazing sound.
Cons: Plugs for the factory door harness that come with the speakers were very hard to connect. If I pull panels off again I will cut the plug off and use spades to connect to speaker.
Speakers sound amazing!
Pros: Easy install & they sound great.
Great replacement for factory speakers. Great sound. Easy installation.
Great sound, especially when you consider the price. These speakers really handle high volumes well. Amazing reproduction of all types of music. Wonderful full bass that's not muddy and crisp highs.
Pros: Incredibly good sound. Adjustable crossover to tailor the system to any vehicle.
Cons: Absolutely none!
Absolutely flawless sound. As an ex- custom installer, I have always relied on kicker to bring the bass. But this component set has it all. Clear, crisp, high and mid range sound with lows to match. I couldn't be more happy with the sound. I plan on ordering the rear deck set and two kicker comp 12's and build a custom sealed enclosure for my wires Accord.
Pros: Flawless sound, perfect fitment, everything needed to do a perfect install is in the box. I absolutely love Crutchfield and depend on them when it's time to tick off the neighbors!
Cons: I have nothing bad to say, completely happy customer!
I purchased the Kicker speakers to replace the stock version. They have made a big difference in the sound, I never noticed the sound from the tweeters in the stock speakers, but with the Kicker component system the upgrade is a huge plus. I can't wait to install the additional power supply to really bring the speakers alive. They have already made a noticeable difference with the stock head unit. Very satisfied with the results. Great technical support as well. First time I am installing front speakers. It did take some customization, probably couldn't have done this without the guidance of the technical support. Really made the purchase all the more enjoyable.
Pros: Great Technical Support Outstanding speakers for the price, especially when replacing the stock speakers Comes with all the harnesses and mounts necessary to intall
Cons: Some customization is needed. Make use of Technical support if this is your first time installing front speakers.
These speakers were a great fit. I used the speaker mounts from original speakers with very few modifications. The tweeters fit in Stock location but had to mount them to the back of the door panel, so you can't remove the grill like you could with stock speakers. Great. Clean. Sound. Powering them with a Hifonics 1000 watt amp - crisp, clear, and awesome! A+
Pros: Crisp Clear Sound. Minimal modifications.
Cons: None so far
Replaced Rockford Fosgate component speakers with these. Was getting occasional crackling from old speakers and not sure if it was speakers or wiring but decided to try these are so far they are a huge upgrade. Sound great!
Pros: Sound great
Cons: Have to be a little creative with tweeter install...but a 1 1/2" hole saw to the sail panel on my Corolla did the trick
A little tricky to install in my truck but it is possible. Great sounds.
Pros: Great sounds
Cons: Doesn't have the quality i thought it would have for the price. Should be about $20-$30 cheaper.
LIVE TECH SUPPORT could not have installed them with out all of you guys help
Excellent sound at an affordable price!
I bought these for my 2003 Isuzu Ascender because my factory front door speakers were going bad on me, one day I was hearing my left speaker and the other day I was not. So I did a little research and decided to buy a pair of Kicker 40CSS674 6-3/4" component speakers from Crutchfield. Once I installed them, man it made a big difference. Deeper bass and crispier sound tweeters, don't get me wrong mines sounded pretty decent when they were new, but after installing these. The sound quality outranked my factory speakers by far. I had installed a DIN JVC KW-NSX1 DVD Receiver from Crutchfield at an excellent price back in May 2013 which is still working like new and like I previously mentioned above, once I installed the kickers component speakers the sound quality improved drastically. I would recommend them to your Trailblazer, Envoy or Isuzu Ascender. My next step would be to install an amp with an sub-woofer for a richer bass.
Pros: These Kickers 40CSS674 6-3/4" component speakers improved the sound quality of my SUV. These are an excelente up-grades at a pretty decent price, yes you may pay a little more, but the quality however on these are excellent and they are very well built.
Cons: You will need to make a mild modification on your factory speaker brackets to fit these in, this modification does not affect the bracket's structural integrity. For me it was a breeze, but again I like to do a lot of things on my own, that's how I am a handy guy. I took about 90 minutes to do the modifications and installing them into my SUV. You may need to have a little basic knowledge on using a router tool, but if you have friend who does better. You will enjoy the sound of these speaker
I picked up a set of these for the rear doors in my Grand Cherokee WJ. They fit without modification to the doors or the speakers! The mounting depth does not interfere with the window inside the door either! I went with component speakers to match the front and for the improved sound compared to the factory coaxial speakers. The tweeters had nice covers that protect them well. I cut holes in my doors under the inside handles for the tweeters (though this is not required) I like the look and sound of this mounting configuration. These combined with some Kicker 6x9 component speakers up front has transformed the vehicles sound. The base is much better, as is the rest of the spectrum. Love these speakers!
Pros: Good fitment and exceptional sound!
Cons: Mounting the tweeters when converting a coaxial speaker to component does involve some modification for my vehicle, but I didn't mind. Totally worth it in the end, and I knew this was required prior to buying. You can't beat the sound from component speakers
Speakers went in without many mods. The sound of these speakers is sort of muddy, but I have yet to hear a great truck stereo without major modifications. Decent for the money.
Pros: Easy install
Cons: Muddy sound
These components were installed in place of factory speakers on a 2002 Volvo V70. These speakers perform better than I expected for the price range. The woofer has plenty of punch for its size and construction. The tweeter design is great for those of you who like to drive with windows down or have a poorly dampened cabin. I would highly recommend amplifying these.
Pros: Great construction, pre-tinned stripped speaker wires for easy soldering, and multiple mounting options.
Cons: All of my issues arose due to Volvo's design of the speaker mounts.
Awesome sound easy to install. All parts needed were supplied
Pros: Great sound. Tweeters are loud.
Cons: None so far.
Great sounding product. Easy installation process
Pros: Easy to install. Sounds great. Works right out of the box.
Cons: Had to mod connectors to fit my Trans Am. If not I would have given 5 stars
Sound much better than the factory speakers they replaced. I was able to use a hole saw to remove the center of the factory tweeter and install the Kicker tweeter in the same location. Wasn't comfortable installing the crossover in the door so I mounted them inside the cab. Speakers came with plenty of wire to permit the relocation.
Pros: Easy installation, great price, sound much better than the factory speakers.
Cons: Haven't notice any.
Excellent performance, Im using it for voice with my amplifier and all that I can say if that the sound is excellence very high quality voices. Nice performance from tweeters too.
Pros: Excellence sound quality
The speakers sound great as long as your high or mid. There's not a lot of bass or punch to the speakers. Coupled with a sub set up these would be perfect!
Pros: Great highs and mids
Cons: Not much bass.
sound great for price. nice highs, ok mid bass but only powering with 45watts
Pros: great highs
I like clean sound and have no intention of installing aftermarket amplifier to go with my aftermarket stereo. Purchased these speakers for the front and equivalent for the rear - overall sound is definitely more clear at highs, better low range, and a crisper than my factory Toyota speakers.
Pros: Good price, nice quality, definitely a good buy/value for those not using a amplifier
Cons: The crossover box was a bit of annoyance to mount in my door as it took my some time figuring out a suitable location that would not interfere with the window and lock mechanisms.
Massive upgrade from factory speakers. I have replaced factory speakers in the past but the change wasn't ever this drastic. I have to 12" kenwood subs running through a 300 watt kenwood amp and these speakers are the first to not get covered up by the overbearing base. I'm happy with the money I spent
Pros: handles highs and mids like a champ
Cons: tweeters are extremely crisp, possibly too much for someone who doesn't have subs/lots of road noise
These speakers replaced a pair of blown factory speakers that came with my used 1998 Chevy Tahoe that I am rebuilding. I chose to use these speakers with the separate tweeters because they were just like what was in the doors originally. Though the tweeters didn't fit the original mounting brackets I still managed to fit them into the same location and the sound from this set is fanominal to say the lease. I couldn't have asked for better even with my old JVC deck. I can only imagine the sound once I install the new Kenwood deck with the Kicker 10 bass and amp in the rear.
Pros: Easy to install, fit existing opening in doors, plenty of cabling to mount the tweeters just about anywhere on the door. Sounds is terrific. What more can you ask for?
Cons: None to date
Awesome highs and mid. You really need to add a sub to get good bass. Super easy instal and like always crutch field customer service is awesome!
These sound awesome,not hard to install either
I bought these for my front doors on my 2013 Chevy Silverado. My Chevy had the bone stock speakers no BOSE, so I started looking online. Crutchfield had the best prices hands down. The shipping was incredibly fast too. I would never look anywhere else to buy audio products due to their amazing customer service department. Keep it up, and keep it loud. Robert
Pros: Crystal clear audio, a lot louder than stock, best sounding speaker I have ever bought
Cons: A little pricey, but not too bad compared to most component speakers.
This is my first experience with kicker speakers. I am a die hard polk fan, but I wanted to try something different. I have a yukon xl denali so the interior space is massive! I am running polk components up front and kicker in the rear. The kicker system is extremely bright. The woofers do an adequate job, but the tweeters are extremely bright. It is all about the sound you are looking for however. The quality is absolutely great! Personally I will be installing polk in the rear as well .
Pros: Pre-wired crossover Plug and play Great price
Cons: Tweeters are extremely bright ; cranking the music up seems to pierce the ears.
Very happy with these speakers. I have had kicker speakers before and I again am quite happy. They have very good highs and mids. Bass is okay. But I am definitely going to buy a subwoofer. I have a clarion cz702 head unit. These speakers definitely need an amplifier though.
Pros: Great highs and mids
Cons: Under powered but that's my fault
Great product at great price!
Pros: Small cross overs easily fit inside door panel or other tight spots Adjustable treeter settings Extremely chrisp tweeter sound Shallow magnets on woods allowing figment in tight spots Great mid sound out of woofers
Cons: Connections on woofers were very tight. Was afrade I was going to break the male end of the connection. Took my time and used a pick to open up femail end of the speaker wire connection and it installed with ease
Excellent sound quality and excellent customer service. Thanks again Crutchfield
Pros: Easy install
Cons: Could use a plate for door tweeters in factory location. The factory tweeters are a one piece design and had to build a mounting plate for new tweeters to install in factory location.
Paired these with the infinity reference 475a amp things sound great especially for the crisp an clear highs great speaker for the price
Great sound and easy install
Pros: Sounds great. Easy install.
Put a set in my daughters impala and loved them, ordered another set for the Silverado.
Pros: Great Sound, Great Price.
I installed these in my car and they sound great with just the radio. I will get another set for my truck next.
Pros: Good highs and mids with a little bass
Great sounding speaker paired with a Kenwood DPX500. Good quality sound.
Pros: Easy to wire.
Cons: Mounting was questionable. Came with clips that I still do not know what they are used for?
Sounds great despite running off my head unit alone, will sound amazing when I throw an amp in the mix!
Great sounding set of speakers, easy installation
Nice sound. A good improvement over the factory speakers
Pros: Nice Sound
Cons: Mounting instructions left something to be desired. Had to fabricate the mounting for the tweeters. The screws and clips are poor quality and had to use many of my own because of the ones provided stripped out.
What can I say, they're Kickers they sound great.
Pros: Nice package, crossover, tweeter and woofer produce a very sweet sound on all genres. Adapter fit perfect.
Cons: None really. had to fabricate mounting plates for tweeters because of factory tweeter design.
Love the speaker they sound great. Would definitely recommend the speakers.
I was looking for speakers to replace my factory 6 3/4 door speakers that would also complement my amp. I was unsure at first as to whether to go with a component setup but after speaking to a Crutchfield advisor and other friends I decided to go with the Kicker 40CSS674. Once I got them installed and connected I must say these were great speakers with quite a bit of power the the highs sound great! I am thoroughly pleased with their performance so far and I definitely recommend these to anyone looking for a moderately priced pair of component speakers.
Pros: Power, very clean/clear, easy to install
Pros: Easy install
Great sounding and have good base for a small speaker
Pros: Sounds great and bass is good
Sound great at low speeds and low volume. Can hear them and still sound great. They are in a convertible so all the low end response goes literally out the 'windows'. Looking to get a small sub to full the void.
Pros: Quality sound for the cost.
Cons: Lack of instruction for the multi use component 'tweeter' mounts. I felt I had to guess.
The speakers sound amazing. As is to be expected. The only REAL issue is the box that comes to adjust the tweeters. The idea is great, however, it is a challenge to find a good place to put them where they can still be adjusted, but out of the way. I ended up just having to play with it for a while, and then keep it in the door. To adjust it now I have to take the whole door panel off. But, other than that, the speakers are great.
Pros: Sound Quality
Cons: Space options
wow these sound real good paired with the kicker 6/34 2 ways in the back door and a kenwood kdc-bt555u the speakers took a couple days to "break in" they have real crisp highs and a solid mid range if your looking for serious base buy a sub if you want clear highs and mids this is the package for you
Pros: quality and value
Good factory upgrade
Pros: worth the money. Have them powered by mtx 75.4 and they handle the juice really well. The tweaters are loud but can take some punishment.
Cons: midrange is good but depending on the voice its sometimes muddy
Great sound and clarity from the tweeters and a nice full sound from the woofers.
Pros: Great full sound.
Cons: Had to make a custom mount to fit the tweeter into.
Great sound, speakers were a big upgrade on my standard Tundra stereo.
Pros: Great Sound, Great Price
Good sounding speakers. Nice replacement over stock.

Seems like a good fit to upgrade to components that will need to take some abuse. Powering these and the matching rear coaxials with a Fosgate Prime 50x4 amp.[ Rhett Aug 14, 2017 ]

If you put these at front, rear doors should have 2 way speakers. In my case i hv these front, kicker two way on rear and the 12" subwoofer at back(trunk) [ HARRY VEGA Aug 18, 2017 ]
I put two way in the rear with two 10" Rockford fosgate subs under rear seat. I do have a amp powering the speakers and sub. This is in a 2015 Tundra double cab.[ Mitch Aug 18, 2017 ]
I put the 2 ways in the back and they sound just as good.[ NELSON Aug 18, 2017 ]

NO,we did not install an amp. There's 3 settings on the crossover we started on the highest and found it was too much treble. Ultimately we settled on the lowest setting. The speakers certainly could handle more power, but we didn't want to get that involved or spend more money on an auxiliary amp.[ Brilliant Light Oct 27, 2016 ]
I was persuaded to purchase an amp because the sound would be much better and alive. It is true....big difference with the amp[ Martin Oct 27, 2016 ]
No you don't need to run an amp but it would sound better if you did.[ BRANDE Oct 26, 2016 ]
I used a Rockford amp pushing them as well as some polks in the rear. they worked well for me and I have no issues with them.[ KEITH BRIAN Sep 10, 2016 ]
Tweets require little power too be loud.... I ran my tweets straight to the head unit... Speakers to amp... Not sure if this is right but it sounds fine.... but I never have ran tweets to amp.... I am running two sets in a Hummer...[ james Apr 13, 2016 ]
next to the Flux capacity. Duh.[ Harlan Aug 31, 2015 ]
The tweeter mounts inside the end of the exhaust. This is the ideal location because it seconds as a baffle for the exhaust. The reduction of exhaust noise with the added accoustics of having it mounted inside of a metal tube will create the ultimate listening experience. The only other logical solution is to Velcro the tweeter to your forehead. Doing so will ensure the sound is directed Forward and then you will drive into the sound.[ BLACKFLY Aug 25, 2015 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on comparing two or more models I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.

A ton... Factory speakers are crap... These speakers are great.... Great buy....[ james Apr 13, 2016 ]
My 2000 blazer was night and day but I they were 12 year old speakers I like the mids and highs the kicker components give and with the right songs my mirrors shake without a sub[ JAMES D Dec 26, 2013 ]
Also depends a lot on your amp. I have 7 these speakers need a good amp to really go[ MICHAEL Dec 26, 2013 ]
If you have a good spot for your tweeters (upper dash) these will blow up factory system away. But again look at you frequency range. These won't go as low as your factory speakers. They're louder, cleaner, and plays better mid bass. To really complete your system. Run a set of these and a sub. Or in my case 2 sets of these and two l7[ MICHAEL Dec 26, 2013 ]
This package contains two woofers, two tweeters, and two crossovers. Feel free to reach out to an Advisor by phone or chat for advise on which speaker set will be best for your vehicle.[ Jeff Nov 25, 2013 ] Staff
