Kicker KS Series

Does a serious factory upgrade, with more muscle at an affordable price, sound too good to be true? What it sounds like are some of the loudest, clearest coaxials ever hidden behind a door on under a back deck.

Give factory sound a serious power injection with a KS-Series Coaxial Speaker upgrade. With added improvements on the woofers and tweaked tweeters, dropping them in where factory speakers were seems like a no-brainer. The curvilinear, gray woofer cones, Santoprene surround, and newly designed basket give KS Coaxials the extra brawn to deliver a smooth, rich sound at any volume.

The Titanium-domed tweeters contain a stout neodymium magnet dipped in ferrofluid for maximum coolness, recreating highs that rival live performance. Give your system the upgrade that it deserves with Kicker KS!

Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
KS (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" (also mounts in most 5" x 7" locations)
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
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.
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.
180 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".
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).
45 - 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.

No
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"
Bottom-Mount Depth
The depth when installed from the bottom of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the top of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
2-3/4"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5" x 7 
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

should have never got rid of them!

June 29, 2013

i bought some of these for my 96 thunderbird about 3 years ago now. i bout 2 sets. had it wired to the head unit. these speakers just took it. I'm the kind of person if a product says it can do something I'm going to make sure it can. so with these speakers it was no different. they did amazing on the radios power. could turn it up all the way and no distortion unless it was from the radio. then wired them up to a 4-channel amp that pushed about 60 or so watts to each speaker. it was Loud! traded the car off but kept the speakers. they went into my buddies ranger and didn't ask questions. then they went into his f150 where they were slammed with about 80-100 watts of constant power a piece. they done amazing! never distorted. most speaker like these that iv had would blow after about 40 watts and a hour or so of constant play. not these. got them back and put them in a Mazda MX6, and still done awesome for 2 years. the only complaint is the price. i paid $60 for them back then and now they are so much higher.

Great speakers!

July 5, 2012

I installed these speakers in both the front and rear doors of my 2007 Ford Escape and was very pleased with the sound quality. The speakers perform very well and I am satisfied with their output. I have used these speakers for about a half of a year, and have noticed that I would like more bass. It is not that the Kicker speakers do not put out enough bass, it is just that there is not enough bass to make the sound feel "full". If you are someone who likes rap or other bassy music, you will definitely want to invest in a subwoofer to compensate for lower bass output from the speakers. The speakers are just not meant for bass output. However, for someone who listens to rock or other music with less bass; these speakers will do a fantastic job of delivering high quality sound. Overall, I am pleased with these speakers and the service from Sonic Electronix.

K68 is a good choice if you need some good mids

March 30, 2012

I put 4 of these in a 96 explorer. They sounded great then i made some improvements to the interior by using sound dampening rubberized spray from Oreilys inside the door cavities and rear hatch. Then Dynamatted everything. I fabricated some speaker spacers that aimed the speakers more toward the listeners. They are very clear once you install them properly. My only gripe is that they are very directional as far as sound projection goes.

just decent, thats about it

December 1, 2011

These are decent speakers nothing more than that, i have 4 of them hooked up to JBL GTO-5355 amp pushing 60W to each one. For the money they are worth it, have decent range, can play quite loud, but highs distort at higher volume (by higher volume i mean as loud you would not listen to it for more then 5 minutes). Also highs are noticable not bright enough but mids have just right kick to it. Lows are very good for money you pay, but have to be filtered below 80Hz if you want to be able to crank up the volume loud. Overall these are a good pair of speakers to drive around with and enjoy music, but sooner or later you would feel they have to be replaced with some better components. I myself am looking right now at either Focal Access comps or Morel Tempo comps to replace KS68s. Though they sound good, just not good enough for me.

Perfect.

October 26, 2011

I've had these speakers for about six months now. These speakers have a very wide range. They project highs, mids, and lows very equally well. They aren't made for a specific type of music, good for someone who listens to a variety of music. These are good for someone who wants a speaker that performs well in every situation.

Surprisingly Good Clarity

October 6, 2011

Yes I would recommend these speakers. The Highs are very clear and work very well with 22 watts RMS. From my Kenwood 248U. Take a chance you wont regret it. FYI they work even better with 50 Watts RMS.

Excellent Sounding Speaker, Cheap Price, = Stellar Service

May 9, 2011

First I would like to say. For those who are questioning a speaker made by Kicker, other then a sub-woofer. I was super surprised at the sound quality by simply replacing factory speakers with a factory head unit. Yes I was under powering them but they still sounded good. I recently upgraded to a Kenwood KDC-148 receiver putting out 22w RMS. These KS68 speakers sound amazing and would for sure recommend them to anyone looking to upgrade there speakers with an a/m stereo . GREAT SPEAKERS.

Big Bang for your Buck.

April 7, 2011

I would most certainly recommend these to others, and already have. I put a pair of these in my 2005 Ford Taurus in the front Doors. 6"x8" mind you I still only have the factory head unit in the car. They have an RMS of 60watts per speaker, my OEM stereo is maybe putting out 13watts, if that. It still was a huge improvement from the stock speakers. I left the stock speakers in the rear deck. This worked out because the only Con about the KS68's is that they lack bass response. So my rear OEM paper 68's make up for it. SOundS GreAT!! I recommend these for sure!!!

Kicker rules!! best speakers for the money, overall

March 13, 2011

These ks68's rock! I wouldn't recommend them with a stock head unit, but are awesome for an aftermarket head unit, with or without an amp. I installed these in an 07 f150 supercrew and I have an AVH- P4200DVD from Pioneer. The sound quality is amazing. These speakers have better bass response than Infinity speakers and are comparable in sq. Get them they are great!! Kicker rules.
