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, titanium-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

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.
6-3/4" (Oversized 6-1/2")
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.
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.

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.
150 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.
75 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".
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).
35 - 21,000 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.
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5-5/8" x 5-5/8" 
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.

Cool Ridge, WV


June 18, 2012

These look like the previous model I have only change that I see is the speaker grills. The ones I have are running off a hifonics amp and they make my ears ring after 10 min of listening at 3/4 volume. They are so loud that they blend perfectly with the 2 10" kicker cvx subwoofers at any amount of bass and those subs shake everything. I plan to buy 2 more pair here very soon and don't think twice on these. Buy now and you won't regret it!!

Sound Amazing

July 7, 2012

I have these hooked up in the front of my car to an aftermarket JVC Headunit and it sounds amazing even though they are underpowered. I normally amp my speakers, but I didn't feel like it and didn't have the space this time. The highs are very loud just the way I like it, and the mids put out decent bass too. I have had the 6.5" KS coaxials on an amp in my other car, and loved them so I figure I would buy these for my T/A and as well. I also bought another set of 6.5" and 4" KS coaxials for the rest of my speakers, and they are great too. I like being able to hear the highs and mids over my two 12" RE subs on my Hifonics Brutus 1700w amp.

Chesterfield, VA

the truth!!!!!!!

January 25, 2012

I did a lot of research trying to find the perfect speaker for my new Honda Ridgeline. I went to several local and national name audio stores trying to find the right item for the right price. Brendan has convinced me to get these speakers based from our conversation and all I can say is that I love these speakers!!! I put these speakers in 3 locations. The top front for highs and the front and rear doors. The sound is incredible. I wouldn't change a thing. I took out the factory sub and replaced it with an 8" Pioneer shallow. It gives you the right amount of bass that you WILL enjoy. MY TRUCK ROCKS BABY!!!!
