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 DS65.2's are the perfect solution for upgrading the audio in your vehicle.

It will fit GM and Chrysler vehicles that have a 6-3/4" size, but it will not fit Import vehicles that have a 6-3/4" speaker size (such as Honda/Hyundai vehicles). To clarify and simplify comparisons to other products, we list it as a 6-3/4" set.

great sound

the speakers deliver the sound I wanted good highs & mid range. They
are driven by 50watts rms per channel. I would recommend them to others.

Great product, great price

Been using these for a few months now and couldn't be more happy. Super crisp and loud. Running these on a 4x75 Rockford amp. Kenwood head unit. Couldn't be happier. Very little bass on these speakers but they're 6.5s, not subs. I have a sub to handle bass

Good buy

Solid product. Good recommendation from Sonic rep over the phone. These Kickers replaced me stock/blown components in the front door panels. They sound very good. Kicker gives a clear and perhaps tiny sound but I later replaced my stock subwoofer in the rear and wow, the balance is great. Used a pioneer 8 inch and ran it off stock head unit with no extra amp. To my surprise the tahoe has a built in box for stock subwoofer.

You get what you pay for

Great speakers for the money. I've had many pairs of kickers over the years and they never disappoint. They come with lots of mounting options which is really nice. Nice set of components for not a lot of money.

I purchased the kicker speakers just to upgrade the factory speakers. I was really surprised at the sound quality. This is a very large improvement over the oem speakers. Glad I did, and went ahead and replaced all 8 with the kicker speakers. You will not be disappointed.

Very Happy with these

I wanted to replace the speakers in my wife's car which is a '99 Honda Accord LX Sedan and wanted to spend the least amount possible for the best performance. I chose these because of reading other good reviews and I picked them up used for a very low price that I could not pass up. I'm going for true low budget car audio.

The Install:
Replaced factory front door dual-cones in a '99 Honda Accord LX driven by 15W per channel RMS built-in to the Kenwood head unit. Outer and inner door skins were completely covered in generic Dynamat super covering all openings to seal off the door. The woofer did NOT fit the factor speaker brackets by a hair - the 6" version DS60.2 would have dropped right in. So, I cut some mounting rings out of some 1/4" birch I had laying around and painted it with some multi-purpose sealer to keep it from disintegrating when it gets wet. I used 1/16" thick adhesive backed weatherstrip on the back of the woofers to seal them against the new mounting rings. The mounting rings are sealed against the door skin by 2 layers of the generic Dynamat super. I can't stress enough how important it is to properly mount and seal any woofer/mid when installing. Poor installation can make an expensive speaker sound like crap. The tweeters were mounted to the trim piece that covers the side mirror mounting nuts and wires. I used the surface mount angle cups and directed them as much as I could to the opposite side passengers head location. The crossovers are mounted with wire ties to an existing wiring harness on the inner door skin in an area that was under the armrest on the door panel.

The Sound:
With some tweaking of the crossover's high level switch, and the headunit's 3-band EQ & bass boost, the frequency response became surprisingly smooth. I tuned the EQ using a PA2 audio 1/3 octave analyzer, and then by ear though I probably would have reached similar results with just tuning by ear. The mid-bass is tight and deeper than most other 6.5" components systems I've installed, but not as deep as the old school Boston Acoustic 6.5Pros that I've had in a previous car, which I expected. The mids and highs are surprisingly detailed and dynamic. Overall, they sound outstanding for an entry-level component set. They are plenty loud using the head unit's power and get way too loud before distortion from clipping was heard. I really don't see a need to amp these as they seem to be very efficient.

When I told my wife I was going to replace the speakers in her car she said "Why? It sounds fine to me." Now, after the install, she was blown away by the difference in sound quality. I definitely recommend these speakers. Now it's time to find some used 6x9s for the rear to get rid of the muddy lows the factory speakers produce.
