4" x 6" 2-way car speakers
Our take on the Kicker DS46 by Crutchfield's Jo Greene
You love listening to epic, soul-shaking tunes in your ride, but your factory speakers make every song sound like a 60's garage band. Replace those worn-out speakers with some Kicker DS Series models, and get the performance and reliability you deserve.
The DS46 4"x6" 2-way speakers use stiff polypropylene cones supported by heavy-duty polyester foam surrounds. The 1/2" balanced dome tweeter belts out the high-frequency details, giving your music energy and ambiance. Grilles are not included — factory grilles are appropriate for most installations. Don't suffer with bad sound in your car — you'll be amazed at the difference some new speakers can make.
Great sounding and great price, with the baffle even better

Polypropylene Woofer Cones: The Kicker DS-series speakers feature durable polypropylene woofer cones for power and control. Polypropylene woofers are also resistant to moisture and high temperature extremes found in automotive applications.
Ribbed Polyester Foam Surrounds: The ribbed polyester foam surrounds allow extended cone excursion for additional bass output and higher SPL.
1/2" PEI Balanced-dome Tweeters: The 1/2" PEI balanced-dome tweeters provide a smooth high frequency response with quick, detailed and spatially-correct imaging. PEI is an acronym for polyetherimide. The tweeters have strong neodymium magnets for higher power handling.
