Kicker KS Series

Does a serious factory upgrade, with more muscle at an affordable price, sound too good to be true? What it sounds like are some of the loudest, clearest coaxials ever hidden behind a door on under a back deck.

Give factory sound a serious power injection with a KS-Series Coaxial Speaker upgrade. With added improvements on the woofers and tweaked tweeters, dropping them in where factory speakers were seems like a no-brainer. The curvilinear, gray woofer cones, Santoprene surround, and newly designed basket give KS Coaxials the extra brawn to deliver a smooth, rich sound at any volume.

The Kaladex-domed tweeters contain a stout neodymium magnet dipped in ferrofluid for maximum coolness, recreating highs that rival live performance. Give your system the upgrade that it deserves with Kicker KS!

Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Priced Per
Car Speakers are typically sold in pairs so you will receive 2 speakers for each speaker purchase on speakers marked "Priced Per Pair". If a speaker is marked "Priced Per Each" then the speaker is sold individually and each purchase you make will result in 1 speaker. High-powered tweeters, midrange and full-range pro audio for car speakers are typically sold per each speaker.
Speaker Size
Refers to the size of the speaker measured in inches. Every vehicle has standard application sizes. Please use our vehicle fitment guide for your vehicle's specific speaker sizes if you do not know them.
6" x 9"
Design
The number of individual drivers in a car speaker. Speakers with 2 drivers are known as a 2-way, and 3 drivers are known as a 3-way. Component systems are often referred to as "separates" because the tweeter is not attached to the midwoofer (main speaker driver) and mounts separately in a location such as a door post. Component systems typically come with an external crossover so you can easily adjust the high and low frequencies sent to both the midwoofer and the tweeter. Center channel speakers are great for those looking to have surround sound in their vehicle.
3-way
Tweeter Design
Designs such as cone, dome, semi-dome, balanced dome, and whizzer are most popular. Cone tweeters are simple, efficient and typically are the most reasonably priced. Dome tweeters are used in most home speakers, and provide a smoother and more accurate sound. Semi-dome design is one with a dome placed inside a cone. A Balanced dome driver is a semi-dome with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the driver. A whizzer tweeter is a separate tweeter cone driven by the voice coil of the woofer.
Dome
Tweeter Size
Refers to the size of the tweeter. Typically, smaller tweeters produces less output with higher frequency response.
Tweeter Composition
Materials such as polypropylene, silk, cloth, and paper are the most common, where as many more recent tweeters are now manufactured with composites such as Aluminum, Titanium, Mylar, and other materials.

PEI is an acronym for "Polyetherimide" which is an amorphous, amber transparent, high-performance thermoplastic.

Kaladex
Woofer Composition
Lightweight woofer cone materials are essential for efficient operation. Poly cones produce exceptional sound and are sturdy against various changes in temperature. Paper cones are very efficient, and when treated for moisture resistance, will perform at a high level. Poly refers to polypropylene, which is thermoplastic or fibers that are polymers of propylene. IMPP refers to injection molded polypropylene, a commonly used process and material in speakers.
Injection Molded Polypropylene (IMPP)
Woofer Surround
A speakers surround is part of the suspension system. The surround protects the cone and prevents it from being displaced as it flexes out from the basket. It is usually made of a durable material like treated foam or rubber in order to withstand the strenuous job of producing bass frequencies.
Santoprene Rubber
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
300 watts
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
100 watts
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
92 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
30 - 21000 Hz
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
4 ohms
Shallow Mount Installation
This means that the subwoofer/speaker is designed to be installed in areas that do not have a lot of space. Shallow mount subwoofers are typically found under a seat or behind the seat in some trucks.

Shallow mount speakers will typically have a mounting depth of 2" or less, while shallow mount subwoofers will typically have a mounting depth of 3" or less.

Top-Mount Depth
The depth when installed on top of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the bottom of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
3-3/16"
Bottom-Mount Depth
The depth when installed from the bottom of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the top of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
3-5/8"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches, required to contain the speaker.
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
6" x 8-9/16" 
Speaker Grilles
A grating or screen of metal or plastic bars or wires, mounted in front of a speaker as protection. If yes, the speakers will include matching speaker grilles. If no, there are no grilles included.

Good sound for the price...

December 8, 2011

I bought these to put in my cavalier to replace some cheap Wal-Mart speakers that I had previously purchased. Great replacement. I see people saying that they don't have much bass, and I agree, But I didn't need it in my car, and they are definitely loud and clear. I would highly recommend these to someone looking to add some clear mid range sound to their system.

Great sound, except for the base

April 13, 2011

The sound itself is great, if you don't mind listening to just the treble. I had to have a subwoofer, which was extra money, installed to get any base! Its a good buy for the money, but check to see if it is compatible with you vehicle.

cool sounding/looking speakers

January 20, 2011

These went into the doors of 98 Dodge Ram.
They are very deep speakers because of the magnets !! be sure to measure depth and dimensions before buying !! I ended up ordering some spacers and DIY jobbing the door panels to make them fit.
In this application I'm very disappointed with the bass quality, but that's probably due to their location and mounting..
The highs are screaming off my 100w x 2 amp and mids sound rich .
If these were in a hatchback or above trunk they would be amazing.

Was a very good choice for my budget.
Thumbs up

Good speakers

December 29, 2010

I have purchased these to upgrade the audio in my 1982 Dodge. They have great sound and look good also. I am driving them with a SoundStorm SSL F4.800 (along with a pair of subs) and they handle the load without any problem.

I also have a pair of Polk DB651 that I drive directly from my head unit. In my opinion the Polk + Kicker combination works well. Kicker has a slightly "fatter" sound with a little bit of an edge. Polk is a little more refined. The two work together quite well.

Highly recommended.

Gets the job done.

November 21, 2010

I have these in their own Panda wedge boxes and they fill my 89 landcruiser with lots of amazingly crisp highs. Mids are satisfactory but I'm sure they arent spectacular because they are in their own small boxes. They work pretty well with a sub but they start to give up around 200 hz and lower.

Great product after difficult install. Product has a cage around voice coil inhibiting it to be placed in My 2001 Grand Marquis. Had to drill new holes and mount under rear deck. Paired with KDC-X794 with built in amp of 50w. BANGS loud to my rap music while crisp with vocals. My first ever aftermarket hook up great choice

The speaker sounds great. Had a box made to fit in my trunk that didn't take up too much space and it thumps hard. I really don't like the whole wake the neighbor stuff, but it sounds perfect when listening at normal levels and hits hard when you want to impress someone.

Amazing Speakers!

April 6, 2010

These speakers are great, before i had them powered just by my Dual deck but i recently hooked them up to my amplifier just to test them since its only a mono-block, and they slammed like my subs were connected to the amp. they can get insanely loud for the price. i only wish that i had more money to be able to always have an amplifier hooked up to them. Great product Kicker! Sonic is an amazing company!

I am now very pleased with the speakers and plan on finishing out my system with some ks model 6.5 and ks model kicker tweeters. VERY PLEASED KICKER!
