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 9"
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.
3-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.
300 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.
100 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).
30 - 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
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.
3-3/16"
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.
3-5/8"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
6" x 8-9/16" 
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.
Yes

These speakers are intense. They hit hard and sound clear. I have the bass on my head unit turned all the way down and they still hit hard. These puppies have a real good sound. I used them to replace my stock Delco 6" x 9" and just ... yeah.

March 20, 2011

These fit great in my 2003 Dodge Ram 3500 with Infinity sound (factory) the highs are loud and clear, and the lows shake my mirrors it's crazy for the 6x9 to put out that much bass Kicker has done it again good speakers. Beats my factory Infinity sound quality by a mile happy I got them would buy again for another vehicle. Nice job Sonic Electronix for good prices and fast shipping cheaper than F*** or B***B** :)

Big sound in a small package. Super efficient and can handle whatever power you throw their way. Throw these into your system and focus on your subs cause you won't have to worry about your mids and highs! I purchased these for outdoor situations and they handle moisture great. Nice looking grilles too.

So good i hooked up 4!

April 21, 2012

At first I bought one set of these and put them in the rear of my 04 hyundai tiburon to relace the paper cone JBL's it came with. They were so good i decided to cut holes in my door panels and install a pair in the front with dynamat as well. Now i have a polk audio 4 channel pushing 100W to each one. They live up to their specs and more. SOOOO LOUD! I swear to god if i turn them up all the way with the bass on like 2, after i turn it down my hearing is very dull from the excessive volume. Seriously consider these if youre in the market for 6x9s.

2011 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab, Great Upgrade!

January 4, 2014

After installing and not having to brake the bank; the sound quality vs the cost is a great upgrade and recommend to all. I have Kicker IX500.4 amp pushing a set of Kicker KS693 6"x9" 3-way, Kicker KS6.2 6 1/2" 2-way with tweeters, and a Pioneer receiver Avic X950BH.

Best customer service, best pricing, everything you need to start to finish.

Great for the money

February 5, 2014

These were a replacement for my speakers in the rear deck of my charger. The screw holes lined up perfectly and there was adequate space between my speakers and my sub box. These things sound good off the factory wiring but they really shine when amped up. (kicker 400.4 amp). My car sounded awesome and one day my amp for my subs shorted and took both subs with it (rockford p500.2). I was upset because I was about to leave on a road trip but as soon as I started driving I realized that these things put out some bass. Most people that got in my car thought I still had subs. You can call bs if you want. I finally blew one almost 2 years later which was a good run but I would highly recommend for entry to mid level systems or maybe someone who wants some nice lows without taking up trunk space.

These kicker speakers can really take a serious beating.
The highs are crystal clear. The bass is HUGE! People tell me that they think I have a sub woofer in the trunk.
I have these speakers powered by a alpine amp. For the money you cannot go wrong. Trust me.

Pretty good speakers

November 28, 2011

These were my first pair of speakers I've purchased. I had a couple friends who were kicker fans so I decided to give these a shot after my stocks blew. Everyone swears I have subs! These hit that good! The quality is clear and the bass is there. I cant wait to have these hooked up to an amp and see the real power!

heavy bass

October 30, 2014

I upgraded from my stock 6x9s to the KS693 in the front and rear of my 06 Camry, and man that was the best decision I ever made! Heavy bass and crisp highs/lows. The only down side was that I had to shave down the interior speaker grills on the door front door panels because the KS693s stick out a lot. But overall, I'm super satisfied.

I really like mine, i got them 6 months ago. They work great and never had a problem. They have crystal clear sound no matter how loud you play them. they have great bass when you dont have a sub like me. Plus i got them for a decent price and i would recommend them to anyone. They were easy to put in and it only took me maybe a couple of hours to install myself. I got them because they have great capablities and that they were such a great deal. plus they are Kicker and Kicker makes good stuff so its all good.

These speakers are awesome

May 25, 2012

First off these speakers are awesome! I needed to find back speakers to even out my higher notes, since my subs drowned out all the highs, these did the job! I don't even have an amp hooked up to them and they still sound awesome. Another thing, the magnets on these speakers are huge! I man they barely fit in my car because of them. I would deffinetly recomend these speakers and will probably buy them again in the future.

Completely dissatisfied

January 30, 2012

I had two five year old pioneer 6x8 3ways to be replaced with the KS693. Both the Pioneer and the Kicker speakers (ks693 6x9 3 way) were powered by a Rockford Fosgate two channel amp. Well I'm dissatisfied because the kicker put out less bass then pioneers did. I am very surprised by this mostly by looking at the two speakers side by side, the kicker is far larger and has a massive magnet on the back. But I guess looks aren't everything. I'm going to add my equalizer to my set up to see if I can't force more base out of this speaker, hopefully Sonic X allows review edits. Lastly the speaker doesn't come with a cutout template.
