long lasting

shawn from manhattan ks on 2/18/2014

I have had the kicker ks 6.52 in my truck from 2005 ran them off the stock HU for most of the time and they did awesome. About a year ago I had them hooked up to a Rockford amp 40x4 and it made them sound 10 times better they hit the highs and midds good and clean, clear and they do good on the bass for the size . I love them kicker is a good comp. to get your speakers from. I would buy a 2nd set if they would fit in my truck

Pros: mids highs bass(for their size ) clean clear sound

Cons: none that have found in 8 or 9 years

Lacking bass

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am not a kid anymore... I heard that the bass was not that great... I thought it HAD to be better than stock speakers... WRONG... Mids and highs great.. Lows are missing!

Pros: Installed in 2013 ford fusion. Fit well with minor mods.

Cons: no bass!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I figured since at the time these were the most expensive ones I'd be able to count on them, but I was wrong. I've had them about 4-5 months and the ones in the back are making a nice humming noise. I even used the amp recommended by Crutchfield. I spent somewhere around 1100 in car audio equipment from Crutchfield in the belief that I was getting quality part. I also had to pay another 1000 to have in professional install.

Pros: Decent sound

Cons: Break easily

wired these to a sound ordnance amp and theyre pretty loud, the tweeters sound great. had to put the crossover on the outside of the door panel because of its size but it looks pretty cool so i dont mind it. the only bad thing i can say is that theres not much bass, but thats what the subs are for. nice speakers overall

Pros: sounds great and looks great

Cons: little bass

Good speakers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers are pretty good. Im running them off a 75 watt amp and a kenwood head unit. The mids and highs are great, but there is very little bass. And according to crutchfield they are 6.5" speakers but they're not they're actually just 6". If you don't believe me just look on the kicker website. Also they havn't been very durable I'm on my 3rd set right now this year and I don't play thm very loud.

Pros: Mids, highs, Design

Cons: Bass, durability, size

Crutchfield response on 3/12/2012 Crutchfield and Kicker use different methods of measuring speakers. What we refer to as a 6-1/2" speaker, Kicker refers to as a 6". To determine which speakers fit your vehicle, please identify your vehicle.

they can take a beating

dustinp from upton, ma on 2/29/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought 2 pair of these components for a 2003 gmc crewcab. i installed these before my head unit and amps. very disappointed at first. the sound quality was awful running of the stock head unit. installed a jvc nav and an amp. the sound quality improved greatly, but still not thoroughly impressed. the lows are meh... kicker prob assumes that if you bought kickers, you plan on running a component sub. the highs and mids are good, but do not compare to some of the kenwoods and infinitys that i've owned. i will say that they are extremely loud and durable. pushing far more power from my alpine amp than these speakers are rated for. still yet to blow them despite my efforts

Pros: durability

Cons: the sound quality is less than dazzling

Great sounding speakers!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Awesome sound, and like a lot of persons I mounted the tweeters with the woofers for ease of installation. Only hard thing was mounting the crossover inside the door, I'd be tempted to put same somewhere else if I did this again, it seems like a funny place to put this IMHO. But the speakers perform flawlessly, I'd recommend these any day!

Pros: Fits my application perfectly, sounds awesome, speakers install easily.

Cons: Crossover can be hard to install inside the door, use your own judgement as to where to place these in your car...

They are good, but can't be a little better

Manuel from APO Kadena, Okinawa on 1/22/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This component speakers are good, but not great! I got them mainly for their highs (sonic) and they are pretty decent, but not what I was looking for. I opted to mount the tweeters on the woofers themselves to save space and installing time and it was great. The thing is that since the speakers are at ankle to knee high the sound is not as crisp when it reaches your ears. Maybe this can be fixed if one opt to instal the tweeters at shoulder to neck height. Ah I also want to add that the amp that I'm using only outs out 65 watts RMS and this can handle 75 so maybe that could be a factor, but to tell you the truth I don't think 10 watts will make a world of difference

Pros: Great price, easy installation, tweeter installation option on woofer.

Cons: not enough highs or highs distribution

Great Sound!

1998 Jeep Cherokee
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these on sale along with the 5.25" version for a 1998 Jeep XJ Cherokee. Powered by an Alpine KPT-445 they play clean and clear at any volume level. The tweeters are not harsh and the woofers provide great midrange. Have them crossed over at the head unit at 80Hz. Install was super simple in the stock front door location by installing the tweeter in the center of the woofer like a co-axial speaker. Most component speakers require custom mounting holes for the tweeters, but these have the additional option of mounting the tweeter in the center while utilizing the factory door panels. The factory speaker grills in the doors don't quite clear the tweeter, so they push the grill out just barely. The tweeters could have been mounted separate, but this kept the installation simple and still provides good sound imaging having the tweeter close to the woofer. The woofer installation required new holes be drilled in the door, but the overall opening and mounting depth accepted the speaker just fine easily clearing the window mechanism. The crossovers mounted easily in the door between the window and the door panel. Crutchfield even provides factory harness adapters so none of the factory wiring had to be permanently modified. I can definitely recommend these to others and the support from Crutchfield has been fantastic.



Incredible value!

SpinDoctor15 from Washington, D.C. area on 8/29/2011

2005 Honda Accord LX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These components are AMAZING. I outift my 2005 Honda Accord with KS6.2's in the front door and KS69's in the rear deck above the trunk. I decided to leave the head unit stock, to simplify my upgrades. The combination of speakers is simply incredible. My factory speakers sounded muddled and washed out. These Kicker components and rears catch ALL the details, and push out sound like there's no end to it! If you want sound clarity/accuracy, detail, warmth or richness, and power, look no further. Simply comparing the magnet sizes (and overall weight) of the Kicker speakers with the stock [cheap] speakers is enough to know that you're going to be in for some seriously great music! I highly recommend these high-quality and excellent-sounding speakers for any application. Have no fear, your system WILL sound awesome.



Nice tight sound

Allen from CT on 8/20/2011

1997 Honda Accord EX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased these to replace the stock door and dash speakers in a 1997 Honda Accord. Excellent sound and a good fit. Pulled the dash "tweeters" and with a few modifications with a Dremel to the stock dash mounts, they look 100% stock. The crossovers are a bit large but stashed them in the console without major issues. The sound is very clean; excellent mid-range and highs using only the head unit built in amp (Kenwood KDC-BT848). The crossover has a 3 position selector switch to tweak the tweeter levels (volume), currently set on 3 (highest) but will likely change to 2 since the sound is just a tad bright even with the head unit EQ set with no treble boost. Not a significant bass presence but that's not what I am using them for. I would not recommend these if you are looking at these as a full-range system expecting a lot of bass- that's not what these are designed for. Great mid-punch and clean highs. Would happily buy again.



Real Good!!

Shawn from Burlington, VT on 8/20/2011

2004 Subaru Outback
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent speakers! I paired these with a Boston Acoustic-5750 5 channel amp, and a head unit with an iPod hookup and ended up with the best sounding ever!! These speakers are powerful enough to be subs alone, but with a sub, WOW! The only tricky part of the install was mounting the cross-overs in the door panels, do some measuring before hand with cardboard mock-ups and there will be no problems. Also, buy the speaker baffles, much worth it. The tweeters look very-sharp when mounted flush. I would highly recommend these speakers!

Kicker KS6.2

Brad from Kernersville, NC on 8/4/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had these speakers installed in my g35 coupe and I am very pleased with how they sound. I have a 60 watt kenwood amp powering them, and they are extremely loud. They have excellent tone at high volume, and are very crisp and clear. They provide great Mids and Highs, and surprisingly good bass at the higher frequency that the subs can't always hit. For the price I believe these are the best components on the market.



Great Seperates

1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I would highly recommend these speakers to all. I have been in the car audio game for more than 20yrs and I am absolutely blown away with the design of these speakers. They have a very flexible design to mount the speakers just about anywhere and for any application. I installed these in the Kick panels of My 1987 Monte Carlo SS and have these powered by the alpine 445 with 40 RMS and sound great. They sound very crisp and clear. I have owned many pairs of Mids and Highs in my day from Boston to Focal and would rate these at the top because of the price. You get more bang for your buck. As always Crutchfield is my one stop shop for all my audio needs.



Epic Sound

LBGreenthumb from VA on 7/22/2011

Lets start by saying these speakers were replacing a pair of polk audio 5 1/4" db speakers in the front doors of my car. All I can say is wow, the kicker speakers blew me away, the highs are crisp and you can set the crossover level to suit your taste, solid mids, the lows arn't the greatest, but thats why I have a subwoofer. I have the crossover set to 60hz on my amp which seems to be a sweet spot on these speakers. I should note these speakers are being powered by an alpine amp pushing 90w per channel at 4ohms, so the kickers are at their full glory, they are still in the "break in" period, I have cranked them up but only for short amount of time. These were my first kicker speakers, but they wont be the last. Just buy them, you will love them.



great component speakers

Product Research


Woofer Cones: The Kicker KS-series speakers feature durable Polypropylene woofer cones, resistant to the moisture and temperature extremes found in automotive applications.

Santoprene Surrounds: The woofer surrounds are made of Santoprene rubber to allow extended cone excursion for additional bass output and higher SPL. Santoprene is durable and resists moisture for a long life.

Grilles: The KS6.2s come with graphite-colored, plastic, spoke-style speaker grilles.

Tweeter Mounting Options: The tweeters come with brackets to allow multiple mounting configurations; flush-mounted, angle-mounted, and surface-mounted:

  Flush Angle Surface
Mounting Height 0.322" 0.716" 1.195"
Mounting Depth 0.775" 0.631" screw depth
Frame Diameter 2.323" 2.323" 1.911"
Cutout Diameter 1.753" 1.753" N/A

Coaxial Tweeter Mount: In addition to standard tweeter mounting options, an innovative tweeter mounting post lets you mount the tweeter directly to the center of the woofer, giving you a standard coaxial speaker. When the tweeter is attached to the woofer the mounting height increases to 1.054" (top mount) and the tweeter protrusion increases to 0.796" (bottom mount).

Crossovers: The component system includes passive 2-way crossover networks for a seamless transition between the woofers and tweeters. The slope is 12dB per octave (both high pass and low pass) and the crossover point is 4000 Hz. A switch on each crossover allows you to attenuate the tweeter output; 0 dB, -4.5 dB, or -9 dB. The crossovers' dimensions are:

  • Length: 5.718"
  • Width: 3.012"
  • Height: 1.487"

Size Classification Note: Crutchfield has traditionally referred to this size speaker as a 6-1/2", while Kicker calls it a 6". Please refer to the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to confirm fit in your vehicle.
