KS-Series Tweeters

Got the bass, but lacking the clarity and definition of a high-performance tweeter? Muddy audio has long been a symptom of weak systems. The simple cure is a pair of high-performance KS-Series Tweeters. Kickerís louder, clearer KS-Series Tweeters provide a full range of size choices to boost your high-end and add live-performance realism. An 18dB/octave high-pass crossover accompanies the 1" KS25, and a 12dB/octave crossover works with the 3/4" KS20 and half-inch KS13. Thanks to a neodymium magnet and a specially-developed voice coil, they handle plenty of power which makes for louder, cleaner sound.

KS Series Tweeters have always been known for their versatility, and directional installation is the key for best results when enjoying music. With this in mind, KICKER has designed the tweeters to be mounted in one of three ways for optimal sound: flush, surface, or angled. With so many options for your ride, Liviní Loud with high-performance KS-Series Tweeters will deliver on a promise of exceptional musical accuracy and matching looks to go with it.

Tweeter Specifications

Priced Per
Car Tweeters are typically sold in pairs so you will receive 2 tweeters for each purchase on tweeters marked "Priced Per Pair". If a tweeter is marked "Priced Per Each" then the tweeter is sold individually and each purchase you make will result in 1 tweeter. High-powered tweeters are typically sold per each tweeter.
Tweeter Size
Refers to the size of the tweeter. Typically, smaller tweeters produces less output with higher frequency response.
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.
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.

Flush Mount
If the speaker or tweeter is flush mountable, then it can be installed flush to the mounting surface.

When installing a flush mount tweeter, make sure that there is enough room behind the mounting surface for the tweeter and magnet. Check the mounting depth with your specific vehicle.

Surface Mount
If the speaker or tweeter is surface mountable, then it can be installed to be raised above the mounting area.

When installing a surface mountable tweeters, make sure that there are no obstructions that will prevent the tweeter from being installed correctly.

Angled Mount
If the speaker or tweeter is able to be angle mounted, then the installed tweeter can be positioned at an angle. An angle mounted tweeter can improve the audible sound quality of your system.

When installing a angle mountable tweeters, make sure that there are no obstructions that will prevent the tweeter from being installed correctly.

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.
190 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.
95 watts
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).
4500 - 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
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.
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
1-9/16" x 1-9/16"

I approve of these tweeters. The crossovers fit perfect in the doors and I aimed the tweeters right toward both front seat persons. I did make a mistake. I didn't realize my windshield wipers push all the rain right where I drilled holes in my camaro. So I must ride with the windows up during rainy weather. Can't even open them a crack, otherwise the speakers get wet. I'll call this a Caamaro minus though. lol. I would love to add another set. I already have four 6-3/4 thanks Kicker and Sonix!

not a fan

November 25, 2011

Do not like these. It seems like the crossover does not work, there is distortion like they are getting too much bass. Amp is set to high pass (Fosgate) not overpowering tweets, but they just dont sound good. I triple-checked the wiring, and still hear distortion like bass is getting to them. going to replace with a set of rockford fosgate tweeters. im done with kicker. I know it's a big name in car stereo, but i had a set of their tweeters 20 yrs ago and i didnt like them back then either, I thought i would give them a second chance and i was wrong.
