Priced Per Pair

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.
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.
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.
90 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.
30 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".
88 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).
80 - 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.
1-15/16"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
3" x 3" 
Hi-Res Audio Compatible
This feature refers to if the product is capable of Hi-Res Audio (HRA) playback.
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
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.

May 21, 2014

Very nice bright and clear sound. Excellent response and great mids and highs! I like them very much for the size that they are. Handle power very well. Great value for the price too! I would buy them again if needed.

Good speaker for a dash replacement

September 18, 2013

Overall not a bad sounding little speaker. the tweeter can be a bit harsh, but I tend to prefer the smoother highs of a silk dome tweeter. Other than that the vocals are good, power handling is ok and they helped raise the soundstage up to the dash

January 29, 2014

These little buggers have a better sound quality than my RF Prime 6x9s. Sorta makes me wonder, what the 6x9 of this brand and line sound like. For example it's more bass responsive and clear.

Nice little speakers

October 18, 2014

These were suppose to be temporary replacement dash speakers for my Chrysler; the stock speakers were so bad in my car I never listend to music, but now I do! These actually surprised me, sounded better than I expected. The synthetic film tweeter is not "harsh" and works very well on low powered systems. I have mine high-passed at 400Hz, otherwise if you run them too low they will suffer; I bet they would do just fine with an amplifier at 600Hz if you can control the level.

Good upgrade

April 13, 2015

Replaced the pillar speakers in my suburban. Had to drill into the frame and cut some plastic on the panel because the stock speakers were an odd size and shape. Head unit is driving these and I added 600 Hz bass blockers. In hindsight, 300s may have been better. Took a while to balance the sound with the other speakers connected to the amp, but I'm glad I put these in. They are a great upgrade to the stock speakers.

Kickers for my 2010 Ram 1500

July 23, 2016

Good speakers for the value - I like that they handle 35 watts, thats 5 watts more than the average. Their fidelity is OK, the highs are a little harsh, smooth out somewhat over use. These are good value - they are harder to blow.

I put these in the dash of a 1990 suburban. They were a direct replacement for the factory speakers and a huge upgrade in sound quality. I would recommend these speakers to anyone looking for a factory upgrade.

Why did you choose this?
Sonic Electronix Store
it fits the power level im looking for, and my budget.

these will definitely out perform the 38 year old paper cone speaker tucked away in my dash panel.
Marty S on Jul 3, 2016
I think these should be able to fit in my 2006 Dodge Charger R/T, based on what I've read in forums. Reviews sounded good, especially since I want some good vocals! I blew the last speakers out playing too much bass, we'll see how these do, although I'm not looking for a lot of bass this time around.

CLARENCE L on Mar 24, 2016
by far the best price. sonic always seems to have the lowest price for what Im looking for. i will be back for future upgrades.
william a on Jan 15, 2016
Will these speakers work well with my late 1960's Blaupunkt "Frankfurt" AM/FM/ SW/LW car radio? I am not sure if the radio has enough output to power these. Would you suggest a different speaker? Thanks
William N on Feb 8, 2015
Best Answer: Hello William,

You are correct in assuming your headunit will not provide enough power to push the speakers to their potential . However, that is Not a 'bad' thing. In fact, speakers like the 40CS354 are designed to be able to perform with even a Fraction the intended rating. This means, your headunit will surely provide enough power to get a desirable outcome.
