Priced Per Pair

Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Performance (Kenwood)
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.
3-1/2"
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.
Dual Cone
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
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.
40 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.
23 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".
89 dB
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.
1-1/2"
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

Great addition to the Geo

February 23, 2014

I bought these speakers to upgrade the dash speakers in my 1990 Geo Metro commuter car. Now I've had the car 9 years, and for most of that I had Blaupunkt "pc series" 3 inch speaks. They were cheap and easy to find at the time lol. I knew these Kenwood's would be a for sure upgrade, and they were. They are pretty clear, and sound good. They are running off the deck, no amp. If you turn them up too high, they will pop a little from the bass, but if you are smart, they work just fine. For the money, I'm very happy ! If you're looking for a booming stereo, then spend more $$ ;-)

May 17, 2014

Like the way it fits into the original place of old radio. I wished the clock was displayed all the time or atleast the choice of it . Also would be better if the aux input was in front not the back . Other wise radio plays good has nice sound

Well.. They're better than my stock ones were

September 7, 2010

I bought these speakers for my 93' Volkswagen fox because I desperately needed an upgrade.
They do sound a little bit better but they can't handle very much power. If I get my music too loud they start to pop from the bass. I do wish Kenwood made some better 3-1/2" speakers. You're better off investing in a different set.

Works just fine

August 2, 2011

I bought these speakers to replace the original dash speakers in my 1986 Mustang GT Convertible as the originals were shot. They fit fine and the sound is good. Overall, a good value for OEM replacement when all you really want is a decent sounding speaker.

Great speaker! Great quality!

September 13, 2010

Used these speakers in the dash of my 1988 K5 Blazer. Work great! Direct fit. Huge improvement over stock speakers. Running them off of a Kenwood head unit. More than enough power for these speakers. Sound quality is great! You wont find a better speaker for the price.

FRUSTRATION

October 21, 2013

The Kenwood KFC-835C worked fine for about two weeks, then stopped when the display informed me I should check the wiring and reset the unit. I checked the wiring, reset the unit and it worked for a few minutes and repeated the display with the "Wiring" problem. I reset the unit. It worked again for a short time. Sometimes it works for 10 or 15 minutes before it stops. When I get around to taking the unit out of my car's dash, I'll take a shotgun to it. I don't recommend the Kenwood KFC-835C unless you're into malfunction and frustration.

Very clean sounding speakers.

May 11, 2016

I wanted to replace my 3.5" dash speakers from the factory pair. Sonic said that these speakers wouldn't fit my 2013 Hyundai Sonata GLS, but I decided to give them a try, and they did fit without and modifications at all. The highs are crisp and clean, and they compliment my stereo perfectly. For the price of these speakers, you can't go wrong with them! Give them a try, you won't disappointed!
