Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
CS (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.
6-1/2"
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.
Dome
Tweeter Size
Refers to the size of the tweeter. Typically, smaller tweeters produces less output with higher frequency response.
1/2"
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.

PEI (Polyetherimide)
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.
Polyester Foam
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".
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).
40 - 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.
2-1/16"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches, required to contain the speaker.
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
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.

Awesome Speakers!!

August 15, 2013

We all know everyone hears music different and everyone listens to different types of music. That said. With these speakers it simply does not matter!! These are the most balanced speakers for the price I've ever heard in my life! and trust me I've been listening to music since the 60's The highs,mids and lows are all great on these speakers! I have 6 of these amped at 100 watts to each channel and they hit hard! No sub necessary. Can't wait to add the CS693 6 X 9's to my system! Most imppressive is the clarity and the bass on these speakers! I've never heard 6.5's hit like these. Kicker got it right this time. If you are on the fence and don't have a thousand dollars to spend on speakers. Get these! You won't be dissapointed!

December 9, 2014

I have 4 of these speakers and all i have to say is WOW! I These speakers pack a punch for there price for sure if not even better. I tested about 20 different speakers at my local Bransmart and IMO these sounded the best to me. Have them hooked up in my house with Sony-MEXN5000BT car stereo with them put in sealed enclosures and the sound of these are crisp and clean. Can get very loud also. Has a very thick deep sound when you add some slight bass in them. Highly recommend these to anybody else.

Listen all day

December 20, 2013

Smooth and well balanced have been mentioned in the other reviews and I have to agree. I can play them loud or soft and hear the details of the music and they just don't let me down. I finally finished my 2013 Optima with these in the rear doors and together with the Kickers in the dash, the front doors and now these, they create a really nice sound stage that is tough to make in a car. They don't go real low but they excel in the mid-bass range and create a nice tight thump with no sloppiness. Impressive highs too that are never harsh. Great crossover point for seamless sound. Gotta get some.

speaakers were shipped promptly, packaged well and in excellent condition. Put them in the front doors of a 98 tahoe 2 door. I never expected them to sound so great. They can handle a lot of power and can go very loud without distortion. They even provide a nice little thump. very clean sound. I am very impressed with kicker quality and sonic electronix again. We will see how they stand up over itme.

These were purchased as a replacement for my front door speakers in my Accord. They sound excellent! They set up a great stereo image, have great presence, are deep, crisp and can handle way more than my Kenwood head unit can deliver! This was a major upgrade! With a pair of Kicker 6x9's on the rear deck......you would swear I had a nice amp driving them! Trust me....you cannot go wrong with these solid speakers.

I own the kicker ds series, and the cs has to be the best series upgraded series I have ever owned. Excellent sound quality and upgraded power handling makes for an exceptional listening experience. Kicker DS was great but the CS can not be described in words. Great job SOnicElectronix you have another overly satisfied customer!

January 22, 2016

I reccomend these speakers to anyone. Obviously the price is great considering how much power these can take. I am actually running these just with the power from my pioneer head unit, and they sound amazing. You really get the most out of them with an amp though. There is little to no bass, but I'm running two 10" subs under my back seat so everything equals out. Very impressed with this one Kicker.

Can ya hear me now?

August 11, 2014

Let me start by saying I wasn't a kicker fan. Wasn't being the key word. I have these in the fairing of a 2013 Harley limited powered by a Kenwood 400 watt marine class d amp. With kicker cs 5.25 in the rear tour pack pods. I used sound damper in the fairing to tighten things up,and used poly fill in the rear pods.This system ROCKS!!!! It has good mid bass, the highs are great and they will not distourt until your ears can't handle it no longer. I'm versitle in my music and will say if your looking for ground pounding bass buy a sub. I am using the factory h\u and could only imagine what it would sound like with an after market h/u. You will not find a better speaker in this price range. For around $270 I have a system I can hear loud and clear at 65+ mph

January 2, 2014

I am very happy with these speakers. They sound great and have a shallow mounting depth. The tweeter is recessed so it does not protrude past the woofer surround, which is great when you are placing them behind the stock grill in a car. Speakers should be heard, not seen. If you want great sound while being able to easily place the speakers in the stock location and out of sight, then these are great. I would buy them again.

Kicker was recommended by others. So far they sound great!
Robert H on Jan 23, 2016
Great Sound Quality, very Impressive Mid Bass. But the biggest disappointment was that after I got the Amplifier to super charge these Bad Boys. I had to set the Amp to High Pass Filter, because unfortunately there was that mild burning smell. Which is completely understandable, so to complete the setup I would have to get the Subwoofer and set it with the next Amplifier to Low Pass. Something that will take, patience time and money. But Overall Excellent Quality Speakers. Highly Recommend

WHat is the difference between component speakers and these?
A shopper on Jan 6, 2015
Best Answer: The tweeter on a component speaker is separated from the main driver an can be placed in a more ideal area for your listening, unlike the full range speaker you have in the picture. In my opinion usually component speakers are a better way to go if you have the extra money to spare. however a full range speaker can get the job done as well if you don't have much to spend on your speakers.

Do the Kicker 40CS654 need an amplifier or can you just install them like regular speakers?
Lucas on Aug 18, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Lucas,

Ideally, you Want an amp to the Kicker 40CS654, due to the fact their power handling is all the way up 100 watts each. Your headunit [OEM or Aftermarket] will most likely NOT give you anything beyond ~15-22w RMS PER SPEAKER. So going with an awesome set of speakers like the Kicker 40CS654 is great, but kind of a bummer since you have well over 80% of performance not being used. If you don't plan on an amp, that is perfectly fine, but we suggest saving a bit of money and going with the Kicker 41DSC65 (DSC654) instead.

what is a good amp for these speakers?
A shopper on Jul 30, 2014
Best Answer: Great choice for speakers no matter what ever genres of music you listen to. They offer great balance of sound, highlighting the instruments. Choices on amplifiers that I would suggest the Rockford Fosgate R600-4d that I had in my car, or the NVX JDA800.4 which I'm upgrading to. My brother has similar setup in his Accord driven by the Kicker KX400.4. loud and clean.

SO if I want to put these on a amp. Will these be ok or should I gp with component speakers? And what kind of speakers should I used?
A shopper on Jan 6, 2015
Best Answer: This is a hard question . because indeed component speakers will be better as they have crossovers . but to be fair this speakers is good enough in everything they have crisp mids and highs . but not made for deep lows as you will need a subwoofer . I prefer to use them on rear doors or shelve . and use component speakers in the front doors ( I prefer infinity PRIMUS ) . install them with any amplifier and this will be the perfect arrange for you .
