Kicker KS Series

Directional installation makes a significant difference in a car’s audio entertainment, but the cost of high-end components tends to factor in the decision to settle for less and why should you settle? Kick factory sound to the curb with KS-Series Component Systems. They provide smooth, clear mids and highs expected from the leader in mobile audio, and at a price that won’t lighten the wallet.

Three sizes of KS Systems offer ultimate flexibility by providing multiple installation options for the end-user. Desiring a conventional component system setup? Kicker systems offer the kind of high-end directional sound sought by audiophiles. Want a drop-in coaxial upgrade for the doors? Simply remove the bullet-phase plugs in the woofers’ center and screw in the tweeters for a simple, quick solution to coaxial sound and audio realism. The use of high quality materials assist in making these speakers some of the best that you can find. The Injection molded polypropylene cone woofer and the santoprene surround increase the life of the speaker while making the sound clearer and more crisp.

The woofers and one-inch, aluminum-domed tweeters are brought together by a symmetrical 12dB/octave high-pass-12dB/octave low-pass crossover/protection network that is second to none, featuring a 3-position tweeter attenuation switch for fine-tuning fickle high frequencies. The finishing touch is added by the latest cosmetics, featuring a metallic finish, a new grille, and spade wire terminals that allow for easy wiring access.

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.
5-1/4"
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.
2-way Component System
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.

Aluminum
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.
130 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.
65 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".
88 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).
38 - 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.

Yes
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.
2"
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.
4-9/16" x 4-9/16" 
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.
Yes

Great while they lasted!!!

April 10, 2012

I purchased 2 sets of these for my 08 F-350. They were being powered by a JL XD 700/5 and a 13 inch JL audio sub. They worked great for about 8 or 9 months then one of the front oned blew both tweeter and midrange. Then 2 weeks later another went bad. If you are planning on using a hi powered amp system then I would look into a different product.

Disappointing

March 18, 2012

Bought this set in Dec 2010, driven through crossovers they come with from a Kicker ZX-700. They sounded great at first. Now one year later, they were buzzing at low volume. It becomes somewhat 'covered up' at mid-level volume, but over the past two months, I can now hear buzzing through the whole range. Replacing with some other brand.

Great product for the price

November 27, 2010

I'm definitely happy with my purchase of the Kicker KS50.2. Definitely use the crossovers though, and hook them up to one channel. Without the crossovers, there is a lot of distortion. I just finished the install yesterday and am happy with it. The tweeters are awesome, I mounted mine on my ceiling right above the two front seats, they look sweet. Not to mention the speaker grilles look awesome too. Before the install, my bass overpowered the vocals; that's not the case anymore. As of right now, I would say the system could be a little louder, so hopefully after breaking in a little more that will happen. All in all I would definitely recommend this product to anyone. Oh, and don't let me forget, I received my package the day after I ordered it! One day, free shipping. You can't beat that! Sonic is the best, hands down. Their prices beat anyone's and so does their support. I will go nowhere else for my mobile electronics, THANKS SONIC! Pros: Great price, AWESOME look, plenty of speaker wire, good sound. Cons: Could have came with a few more wire connectors.

Clear accurate sound reproduction,Great Value

August 10, 2010

I own my own car audio business and have installed in the industry for 16 years. I have owned these components for six months. They sound great, they look great. The price was far less than C**********, or any of the car audio shops in my area. Sonic offers top notch customer care and warranties. I have purchased other electronics from Sonic since this purchase. They are a Five Star company in my opinion. I would recommend these speakers, and this company to anyone.

What I Expected!

April 14, 2009

This component set is exactly what I expected from Kicker. I installed these myself. I cut a whole in my door to mount the tweeters flush. I have them connected to an older Kicker ZX460 and they sound great! The sound is very clear. I am planning on buying another set for my back doors. Definitely worth the money.

April 6, 2009

These speakers are a great addition to a sound system. The mids are very good with almost no distortion even at very high volume, and the highs from the tweeters are crisp and clear. Great surround sound.

great componene set for the price!

July 10, 2008

I just bought two sets of these. They are a great deal for the price. i am very pleased with the sound. The installation went very smooth. I like the fact that you can mount the tweeter to the speaker. That really cut down on install time. I would recommend these for some one who wants to improve the sound of a factory stereo with out cutting into the car.
