Upgrade Your Factory Audio

If music is an important part of your life, then your car speakers should be too. The DS Series speakers by Kicker are a true phenomenon for the car audio industry. They are able to produce incredibly clear audio with little amounts of power. You can pair these speakers to almost any source unit such as a factory head-unit, aftermarket stereo or an amplifier. These speakers have heavy duty voice coils in order to withstand high temperatures. The dome tweeter design will produce a soft, warm, high-frequency sound that seamlessly blends with the mid-level sounds of the main driver. Look no further, because the Kicker DS68.2's are the perfect solution for upgrading the audio in your vehicle.

Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
DS (Kicker)
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.
Pair
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 8"
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 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.

Titanium
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.
Polypropylene
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.
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.
45 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.
90 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".
90 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).
40 - 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.
2-3/8"
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.
No

Will buy again

April 3, 2014

I have been nothing but happy with these component speakers. They have an awesome sound, really great highs and lows. I could vibrate pictures off of walls driving down the street and the only thing that I did was a huge amp(1100 watts) and these speakers. They handle the sound like magic. You will have to tone down the brightness but once you do that they don't hurt your ears any more

peforms as advertised

September 18, 2013

Overall, I am pleased. Obviously with a relatively inexpensive pair of components there will be compromises. With these the peformance is not as flat across the spectrum as higher-end speakers. However, this is to be expected. There are a couple of minor peaks, but they can't be much more than like 3-6 db. There are some nice things about these speakers. Great value for the price. They have a wide range extending up into some pretty extreme highs. It can handle some pretty low frequencies too, but they seem to kind of roll off, but if you boost the bass (or better yet cut the highs and mids) you can get a pretty complete sound. The efficiency is very good. These things are loud, which suited my needs since I don't have an amp for them. I recommend them if you don't have a lot of money and you want a bang for your buck kind of upgrade from a stock system. These will put out decently with the head's built in amp and they will improve your sound quality with wider range (particularly in the highs). The component setup will let you get those highs up where they're not just wasted on your knees, which will make it so you can actually appreciate the magic of stereophonic sound. On a side note, it's not super important, but I'd say the design is a little cheesy looking, but that's totally subjective. Also you can set the tweeters to three different attenuations with the crossovers. I just have them as low as they can go (i think it's -6db) because those things are pretty bright.

Crisp-N-Clear

June 10, 2013

I installed these in my '09 F150 Super Crew, because the factory speakers leave a lot to be desired.. The installation was easy and they are so clear I hear details in music I never even knew were there before. Running them off the factory HU with no amplification... adding 2 12" Rockford Fosgate R2SD2-12 for the Bass this weekend and this install will be complete.

sounds great

May 19, 2012

These speakers sound great with my stock Toyota radio. Then I switched head units to a Sony s300-BTX and they sounded even better but still not very bassy so I added a 100w 2channel amp but still not very much bass but the miss and highs sound so good better than any of my friends systems.. super crisp and clear!!!

Great Speakers

February 20, 2012

Been running these about 6 months now. Powered by a Kicker 5 channel amp. Cant complain they sound great. Highs are really clear and smooth. I have them on 0db because I think they are a little harsh at +1 or +3 db but that is my taste. You will not be dissapointed in these speakers thats for sure. Could not be happier.
