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.
6-1/2"
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.
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.
Whizzer
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.

Mylar
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.
Treated 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.

Yes
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"
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.
1-7/8"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
4-13/16" x 4-13/16" 
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

Builders Dream

February 6, 2014

I really like the sound of these simple, efficient speakers. Surprisingly clean and crisp sound with plenty of bottom end. Oh, and if your amp has limited power, you'll be very happy with how much more sound you'll get out of these. I've been using these to build lightweight, weatherproof, portable speakers for a while now. Builders might appreciate knowing that they come complete with grills, wire leads, a set of screws and nutplates too. Great value.

Perfect fit for 88 Honda Civic

December 7, 2013

This speaker is a great replacement speaker for 1988 Honda Civic. The door panel of the 88 Civic has some rather restrictive dimensions. The speaker can't be too deep or it will hit the window glass mechanism. The speaker can't be too "tall" (front dimension) or it would hit the inside of the door panel.. The KFC-1654S fits perfectly with no problems and allows us to keep the car with original factory door panels for our restoration project. It installed with no drilling required. I appreciate that wire lengths with new terminal ends was included in the speaker kit. Great value.

Same as my factory speakers

December 2, 2013

I had high hopes that these speakers would make my 2000 Honda CRV's radio sound a lot better. Well, come to find out, these Kenwood's sound exactly the same as the 14 year old factory speakers. When I called Sonic about my disappointment, I was told that the car stereo was likely under-powering the speakers. I was trying the cheaper "fix" to having a better sounding car stereo but now I realize I need to invest more for hopefully better sounding tunes. Installation was okay (20 minutes per speaker). I bought 2 sets when I should have only bought 1 set. Luckily, I can use the other two I didn't install in my CRV, in my Kia which has awful rear speakers. Sonic's costumer service, price, and shipping were all excellent.

Excelllent frequency response

September 19, 2013

I chose these because the frequency response claimed to be full range. They are rated at a lower power than many competitors but this is actually a good thing. The cone has more give. They sound great. Wonderful low end. I am a professional musician and take speakers seriously.

Surprising highs

September 17, 2013

I purchased these speakers for my 95 Nissan King cab pick up. I have these speakers in the rear, I didn't want speakers with tweeters that close to my ears is the reason I purchase these. Surprisingly, they have pretty good highs for dual cone speakers. The shallow mount design was perfect for the very limited mounting depth I have.

Great Sound

August 13, 2013

I have just ordered a set of these Kenwoods just to replace some buzzing factory speakers in my wifes car thinking the were going to be just above satisfactory. When i heard them for the first time with all sorts of music I was very impressed with with handling and no-distortion of the speakers. Don't get me wrong these speakers are not able to hold a lot of BASS but i'd buy them if you have to even out your Mid and Hi's for imaging purposes. I would recommend a set to anybody.

Nice speakers, nice price

December 4, 2012

Replaced my factory Infinity speakers on my 2003 Jeep Liberty with these...had to modify the connection to utilize the Infinity built in amp, but not an issue...needed the speaker mounting plate to fit, but all in all a pretty easy install...they work great, don't notice any loss of performance by keeping the Infinity amps...
