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.
6-1/2"
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.
Dual Cone
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.
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.
Cloth
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.
160 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.
35 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).
35 - 20000 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.
1-11/16"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches, required to contain the speaker.
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.
Number of Speakers
This is the number of speaker that is included in the package. Each purchase will result in receiving the number of speakers indicated here. Please note that some items will have multiple woofers in the same enclosure. For sets of component speakers, this number will refer to the number of sets of speakers (For example, 2 would indicate the purchase includes 2 woofers and 2 tweeters).

Please refer to the product image and description for further details about the speaker.

Works well for me, have 4 of them in a 98 Jimmy wired to an amp. Goes loud without distorting and sounds clear. Not a lot of bass to them but i have subs for that. I just wanted clear sound and they do the job.

Good Deal

January 10, 2012

I bought two of these to replace the original factory rear speakers in my 2000 Toyota Sienna because the foam around the cone crumbled due to age. I have the factory stock radio which is only 15W/CH so I looked for the lowest wattage speakers with a decent SPL. These installed easily with a minor adjustment to the terminals so I could leave the factory ends on the wiring harness. Decent sound with low distortion. Would like more bass response but would need a booster amp for the rear to get that. For the amount of time it would get used and the age of the van I won't spend the money. That's why I bought these speakers instead of paying the outrageous cost for OEM replacements from Toyota.

GREAT BANG FOR THE BUCK!

May 11, 2011

Sonic has definitely got a customer! I know these are a lower end model, but my factory speakers were blown. All I needed was something to produce sound for a little prelude used for commuting. And, I am more than happy with how they ended up sounding! But, I have also always been a fan of Kenwood. And, something else that was so great was the customer support, and the knowledge of the person on the line! AND, THE FAST FREE SHIPPING WAS GREAT ALSO! I ordered them at around 2:00 P.M.. I received them at around 5:00 P.M. the very next day!

I bought these speakers to replace a set of factory speakers I had. I really like the sound. The high are crisp and the bass bellows. If I did have one complaint it would be that the midrange is a little muddy but overall quality is very good.

September 19, 2009

I contacted this seller as a total laymen, knowing absolutely nothing as to what I needed. I told him what vehicles I had and what I wanted/thought I wanted. He took the time to look everything up for me and call me back. This seller I have recommended orally several times and would recommend him for anyone. His prices are great but his willingness to assist in any possible way is something that I have found hard to find. If he has the product, look no further, you have the best "complete" package there is. He stands behind his products, knows his products, and therefore can help anyone with purchasing. Thanks, you are a true 5 star seller.

October 4, 2011

I wouldnt recommend this speaker cuz of the way its designed. Yes it was loud and clear on only HU power, but that center piece made of chrome plastic foil? When it plays after a few months it seems to wear down and make an annoying sporadic noise over the music. Like someone would snap their fingers or a sharp clap. It was annoying to hear.

Overall I was very pleased with these: the sales guy I spoke to recommended them., and he was right.

The construction quality is good and they have a balanced, sweet sound. Not a great choice if you want booming bass, but used with a sub they'd be good for that too.

SOUND NOT SO GOOD FOR A SIENNA

April 8, 2010

This is a great value for what it is. I was replacing a blown speaker from my son's adventures and did not want to pay the over $100 for 1 speaker from toyota. So because of kenwoods name i bought this. I should have spent more. It works but not even close to what it was. Not speakers fault though, just an application problem.

Fantastic buy, makes people who spent alot jealous

November 8, 2010

I have this sub (only one) paired with a 10 year old Pioneer amp putting out 380 RMS, which is a safe match to the subs 400 RMS, its in a 1.5 cu.in. box that I ported and tuned myself, to 33 hz. its in the trunk of my 01 altima. the sub is fantastic, it has a great sound, nailing the deep notes and bass drum, while helping the door speakers. I have friends with kickers and Sony Xplods and Pioneers (some of them having 2 subs) and this kenwood can easily compete with them and beat most of them out for sound, how hard it hits, and most importantly, price.

decent speakers for the cheap price

April 7, 2010

I have these speakers in my car and they still work after 6 months of constant use. They are so cheap so I can't complain since the sound quality is actually decent (these are not top of the line Rockford Fosgates nor did I expect that when I bought these Kenwoods). They can handle about 70% of the volume from my Sony (15 X4) head unit. If you want cheap speakers and don't turn your music beyond 60 decibels then these are good for you. If not then save your money and don't be cheap. It's important to know that mine have bass blockers that block bass below 150hz and these speakers still can get clipped with bass if the volume is too high.
