Awesome Speakers!!

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!

Kicker 6.5 CS Model

Aloha! After purchasing 2pairs of the CS model speakers, I was amazed by the clarity and punch these simple speakers add to my Acura TSX. Replaced the 4 door speakers without an amplifier and it still slams. Best bang for the buck. Good deal and good quality.

Kicker CS65 Speakers

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

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.

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 would swear I had a nice amp driving them! Trust cannot go wrong with these solid speakers.

nice speakers

Nice speakers for your money I bought 2 sets and I'm happy with the sound definitely not the best but they do their job

Excellent product

High quality and crisp sound. I would highly recommend these. They come with small pre-crimped and spliced wires to attach to the speakers and additional wire which is great.

super upgrade!

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.

Best Upgraded Series Yet

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!
