Overview

Our take on the Kicker 43DSC504

The Kicker fit

Kicker's DS Series 43DSC504 5-1/4" speakers make a great replacement for the worn-out factory spakers in your vehicle. In addition to providing excellent sound, these Kickers incorporate a zero-protrusion tweeter into a low-profile speaker that'll fit in more vehicles than ever.

Reliable, powerful sound

These 5-1/4" speakers will give you the kind of clarity you've never had with your factory speakers. The 2-way design recreates a dynamic sound, dedicating the highs to the PEI domed tweeter while sending the lower frequencies to the 5-1/4" polypropylene woofer. They'll conjure hefty volume even from low-powered factory radios, so you can confidently pump your jams for years to come.

Highlights:

  • 2-way car speakers (pair)
  • 5-1/4" polypropylene woofer with ribbed polyester foam surround
  • 1/2" PEI domed tweeter
  • power range: handles up to 50 watts RMS (200 watts peak power)
  • frequency range: 45-20,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 90 dB
  • top-mount depth: 1-7/8"
  • impedance: 4 ohms
  • grilles included
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Excellent they are great for the price.

Justin from Dallas, TX on 7/26/2017

2014 Ford F-150 XLT
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased these to replace a bad (not blown) stock speaker in an 2014 F-150 that currently had 6"X8" speakers. With the install adapter and wiring harness to fit the 6"X8" opening I installed just the driver door speaker first to compare against the passenger door stock speaker. Very disappointed. I agree the sound quality is more crisp across the higher and mid frequencies however all the low end sound is gone (No Bass). Even with the stereo bass maxed out on the head unit it did not come close to the stock speaker without the added bass on the head unit. I purchased four speakers to replace both the front and back speakers however I do not know if it is worth losing all my bass considering it makes up 30%, and in some cases more, of the music I listen too. Top 40 songs on the radio would sound completely different and less engaging. I am sure these work great in a system with an added subwoofer or for replacing a blown 5-1/4" speaker in another vehicle but not in the F-150. Not sure what to do now.

Pros: Good Quality & Design for the right application

Cons: Much less bass or low end sound than stock on F-150.

Decent speakers, but for the money they are great. If you're on a budget and just trying to improve a stock sound system, this is the way to go. Improvement in sound quality for sure.

Pros: Great quality for the price. Rich sound and solid construction.

Cons: Without an amp pushing these, you'll really be limited to small-time sound. You can turn the volume up, but they'll distort before you get to a solid "rock out" volume.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For a small inexpensive speaker I was very pleased. The adapter and speaker fit right in no problem. What blew me away is, that I had forgot to take advantage of the "buy one get one half off" deal. So I called back and Crutchfield, honored that. But I ordered the same exact ones, (that were for my front door speakers) and I needed a set for my rear doors, so, you even took care of me there. You not only gave me the speakers that fit my rear doors, you gave me speakers that were 100watts more powerful at No Extra Charge and if that wasn't good enough, You gave me Free Next Day Shipping and I got them the next day!!! Wow! I love the way this company treats it's customers!... Highly recommend Crutchfield!!!

Love Kicker products. Never had an issue with anything with the name Kicker on it. And Kickers customer service is over the top. I had a Hideaway with a bad harness on a piece I hadnt gotten around to installing over a year and a half and they sent me one right away. These 5.25s deliver real clean sound and can really put out even without being amped. Perfect pairing for Kenwoods KDC head units.

Pros: Crisp sound well built

Cons: Maybe a little better low end, but hard due to size

2016 Toyota 4Runner
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers are great for the money and were paired with my factory radio in a 2016 4Runner. I bought them because of their excellent frequency range compared to other brands that are similarly priced. The sound is very clear and a huge improvement over the factory speakers. People seem to think that simply replacing factory speakers is going to provide a huge amount of bass, but if that was the case there would be no need for subwoofers. The bass from these speakers is very crisp and adequate for my needs. I want a nice sounding system, not a vibrating vehicle that annoys every other driver. I would definitely recommend these speakers over any other brand in this price range.

Pros: Crisp, clean sound from my factory radio with very sufficient highs and lows at an affordable price

Cons:

Great all around speakers!

Great speaker for the price. Much better than the stock 5.25 in speaker. Used these in the back doors of a 2008 Dodge Ram Quad Cab. Really helps fill the cab with clean sound. Using these in a 4 channel system for now but plan on upgrading to a 5 channel with sub. These speakers will definitely help support the high and mid range.

Pros: Great Sound Easy to Install

Cons: None

Awesome little speakers to replace the factory speakers in my sons Wrangler over head bar. They screwed right in and the free connectors that come made it a five minute job. They sound great too especially when compared to the old factory ones and thats running off the stock radio.

I purchased these to replace the OEM door speakers in my 1992 Ford Ranger. The OEM radio had been replaced by a JVC SX930 and it appeared to be overdriving the original speakers. WOW! What a difference. Four screw replacement for the Kickers and the install wiring provided by Crutchfield made it fast and simple. The response range on these "thin" speakers is phenomenal and the bass is very powerful with crystal clear highs. I just love economical quality and this is it!

Pros: Perfect fit in door, provided wiring harness speeds quality installation.

Cons: None.

I have a 99 Nissan Altima, so they were smaller than stock but they get the job done. They are crisp, clear, loud, and define sounds well. I used brackets and had to cut off some parts of the bracket for the rear deck.

Pros: Crisp Clear Loud Much MUCH better than stock Good price Good Bass

Cons: A little hard to install in the 99 Nissan's rear deck (but this is Nissan's own fault for making it a pain) The bass could be a little louder but it's MUCH better than stock and it gets the job well done for a few hours of driving each day. Rap and EDM songs sound great.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used these speaker as an upgrade to the Honda factory installed ones. These speakers fit perfectly in both the rear shelf and front doors with the supplied adapter rings that were included. You will have to drill 4 holes for each front adapter spacer. The wiring harness adapter make life easy. Finally I have to say Honda has achieved a new low in my book for the absolutely cheapest factory speakers I have ever seen in my life!

Pros: Decent sound quality from a small speaker, major upgrade over factory supplied speakers. Great Value

Cons: Not a whole lot of bass but in all fairness they're small speakers

Amazing sound!!!!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The problem with Jeep's soundbar, you get a rattling sound that comes from the unit being hollow. Stuffed soundbar with polyfill and placed these Kicker speakers into the unit, the grills are bulky, so I had to grind the plastic with my Dremel tool. Turned up the music and I was still getting a rattle sound, it was the light on the soundbar. Went to Hobby Lobby and got a sheet of 2 mil foam and used a cup and lid from spray paint can for the template for the lens. Placed the sticky side on the housing, placed lens back on. Fixed the rattling sound. Now it sounds AMAZING!!! Night and day from the stock speakers.

Pros: Far better than stock and the bass in right on, while the vocals are crisp.

Cons: For Jeep sound bars, the grills are bulky, Quick fix with Dremel tool.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The speakers are great, sound quality is overall pretty great, the only problem I encounter is the bass when I'm playing a bass heavy song. This is expected because they are small and not bass heavy speakers but overall great speakers

Pros: Sound clarity

Cons: Bass is on the low side, clarity is worse when you turn the bass on high

Quality/Affordable Upgrade Over Stock Speakers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Let's face it-stock speakers suck. I had previously replaced the front speakers, but finally got around to upgrading the rear door speakers with these. I replaced the rear 5.25" stock speakers with these and immediately kicked myself for not doing it sooner. Much improved soundstage, and the overall better highs, mids and bass. The wiring harness sent worked fine. Rather than drill out new holes in my door, I purchased adapters at a different online retailer which made installation pain-free. Very happy with these for the price.

Pros: Sound great for the money.

Cons: Don't expect much bass at this speaker size, but they've got more punch than stock.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These 5-1/4 kicker speakers sound great on the Tundra's rear doors. The only issue is the free adapter plate is a little too big and leaves a small gap that you may have to fill with sound proof material. Other than that, its a great speaker for the stock system.

Pros: Nice sounding speaker for stock replacements.

Cons: None.

Features

Polypropylene Woofer Cones: The Kicker DS-series speakers feature durable polypropylene woofer cones for their rigidity and light weight. Polypropylene is 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.

Balanced-Dome Tweeters: The 1/2" PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide, polymer film) balanced-dome tweeters provide a smooth high frequency response with quick, detailed and spatially-correct imaging. A semi-dome tweeter has a dome placed inside a cone; balanced dome tweeters are semi-dome tweeters with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the tweeter.
