Premium components

The 6-1/2" glass-fiber woofer cone delivers full, hearty sound, and its specially designed surround ensures endurance, play after play. The 1-3/16" hard dome titanium tweeter brings striking detail to your music, upholding the artist's intention from song to song. If you love high-res music, these tweeters reproduce frequencies up to 40,000 Hz, delivering the extended detail and strong imaging of your high-res FLAC or DSD files.

Kenwood also includes versatile mounting gear for a variety of installation of challenges.

Bring on the power

These exceptional speakers will handle up to 100 watts RMS, so you'll maximize their performance when you power them with a nice amp. And the included external crossovers let you amplify the woofers and tweeters separately for an even stronger sound.

Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

Product Research

Features

Custom Brackets: Using the included brackets, the Kenwood XR-1701P woofers become factory replacement speakers, compatible with several Ford, GM, Hyundai, Toyota, and Volkswagen vehicles. The brackets are multi-purpose, scored for trimming to fit several applications. Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.

Size Classification Note: Some manufacturers, including Kenwood, call this size speaker a 6½". Because it requires a larger cutout than a standard 6½" speaker, Crutchfield has traditionally referred to this size woofer as a 6¾".

Crossover: Each crossover has screw terminal inputs and outputs that will accommodate bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.315" wide. (Speaker wire is not included with the system.) The output level of the tweeters is adjustable; choose 0 dB or -3 dB. The crossovers also have bi-amp inputs, one input for the tweeter and one for the woofer. When bi-amping the speakers, the input jumpers need to be removed. Using four amplifier channels to bi-amp the speakers typically improves the dynamic range and presents an easier load for the amp(s) to drive. The crossover slope is 12 dB/octave, high-pass and low-pass.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Width: 5.275"
  • Height: 1.3"
  • Depth: 3.275"

Tweeter Mounting Options: The tweeters can be flush mounted using the supplied hardware, or surface mounted using the included housings. Once mounted the tweeters have these dimensions:

  Flush Mount Angled Surface Mount
Mounting Depth 0.8" 0.54" (screw depth)
Mounting Height 0.35" 1.98"
Cutout Diameter 1.788" N/A
Frame Diameter 2.082" N/A
Frame Length N/A 2.18"
Frame Width N/A 2.08"

Warranty Note: Although the information included with these speakers indicates a 1-year warranty, they are actually covered by the Kenwood eXcelon 2-year warranty.

4 questions already asked

Q
If I wanted to run the XR1701P in an active setup, what would be the proper crossover frequency? It doesn't look like Kenwood publishes these specifications. The only thing they divulge is the crossovers are both at - 12dB per octave on the passive crossover. Thank you in advance!

That is an excellent question and since Kenwood doesn't post anything you have some versatility. This would probably something better answered giving us a call and speaking with one of our experienced advisors.

There are several amplifier that would be a good match! I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help you pick out the amp that best suits your needs.

Q
Would these sound speakers (XR-1701P) sound better than the JL Audio C3-3650? I listen to hip hop, RnB pop and rap, along with talk shows and podcasts.

I don't know bro, the only thing I know its JL AUDIO it's a BEAST! I am very happy with my purchase, and I listen to rap musics
