Kicker 40CSS694

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.  

Bring on the treble and the bass

Kicker's 40CSS694 component speaker set provides low-end from a tough 6"x9" 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.

Great sound for the price

4 questions already asked

Thanks for your question. The manufacturer lists them at 2-150 watts RMS (450 watts peak power). You can find more information on the main product page under "Product Highlights". Hope this helps. [ Kenny  Dec 09, 2016 ]  Staff
If you've ever listened to a Sonos Play:3 speaker, that's about how much bas you get out of it. Enough for someone who wants their car to sound GREAT over stock, but if you're looking for bass you can really feel, you will need a sub. When I got these I was looking for just enough low end to listen to house music and hiphop and it did just that. [ Marvin  Dec 23, 2016 ]
I replaced the Toyota stock door and dash speakers in my FJ Cruiser with this set-up. This truck came with a sub included in an eleven speaker package. Crutchfield representatives said the woofer was okay and recommended that I only replace these four speakers so I could "hear" the music better. They were right! During installation, I was astounded about the difference in speaker magnet size, stock to Kicker. The result: bass was enhanced as were the highs and mid-range notes. The cross-overs must have helped separate the frequencies. Overall. I was quite pleased by the listening improvement and very satisfied with Crutchfield's professional support, as always. [ Stephen  Nov 08, 2016 ]
If your not running a amp the 6×9 will help, however I recommend 8" subs. BIG difference on the low end. [ Walter  Nov 07, 2016 ]
They will not give you very much bass. I would put in an 8 or a 10 depending on how much bass you are looking for. I put an 8 under my front seat and it was all I needed. [ Mark  Nov 06, 2016 ]
You will want to contact an Advisor by phone or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you. [ Jeff  Dec 23, 2013 ]  Staff
