Upgrade Your Factory Audio

If music is an important part of your life, then your car speakers should be too. The DS Series speakers by Kicker are a true phenomenon for the car audio industry. They are able to produce incredibly clear audio with little amounts of power. You can pair these speakers to almost any source unit such as a factory head-unit, aftermarket stereo or an amplifier. These speakers have heavy duty voice coils in order to withstand high temperatures. The dome tweeter design will produce a soft, warm, high-frequency sound that seamlessly blends with the mid-level sounds of the main driver. Look no further, because the Kicker DS65's are the perfect solution for upgrading the audio in your vehicle.

very cheap speakers...maybe too cheap

I bought a pair of Kicker DS65 and installed them in my car. The installation was very simple and easy, and the speakers sound very clear at low to mid volume, but not very good at high volume. One of my speakers just quit working after just 5 months though, and I am not very happy with them at all. I replaced these cheap speakers with the more pricey KS60, and have not had any problems with them so far. In my opinion, invest a little more money and get the KS60; it's worth the extra money you pay.

Kicker DS65 (11DS65)

I bought these speakers for the front stage in my '96 GMC Sierra. The installation was kind of a pain, but that's because Chevy/GMC make doors a pain. The fit was perfect though. While they were in, running off the HU, they sounded great for the price, really crisp and clear, not the best bass, but the subs took care of that. I have them in my room now in a box that I made, and they are SO crisp and tight, they really brightened the sound in my room.

For the price I couldn't be happier!

I got these for my 93 Corolla, for the back.
The sound output on them is fantastic just running off my Kenwood deck. They don't make much bass but they do make pretty decent midbass to go with the 10 in my trunk. I highly recommend these to anyone looking for cheap pretty balanced sound.

Nice little kickers

I would recommend these to anyone on a budget that wants clear punchy sound. They drop off big time on the low end but that's normal for a 6.5" coaxial driver. I would recommend you throw a 100hz bass blocker to prevent over-driving the woofer as its VERY easy to blow these little guys with any amount of bass. For the price and what they are I am very happy with these drivers!

Best bang for you buck

Very good voice clarity , bass is ok, I would expect a bit more bass from this product. Installed in 2010 accord, for the front doors

Great Deal !!!

I put these in my Durango that has an Infinity system. The installation was a breeze after changing the connectors. The 6.75 inch speakers fit the stock spacer rings, NO MODIFICATIONS. Everything went back together and looks just like it did. The speakers sounded a little flat at first but the more we play them, the better they sound. The bass has really gotten stronger and vibrates the doors. I recommend these so much I am going to install some in my Ram.
