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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

Decent.

July 25, 2017

If what you are looking for great, crystal clear sound at any volume in high, med, and low end then I would strongly recommend something besides these. They sound great with the volume low or medium but any "bumping" of your stereo and you will notice the distortion rise without doubt. They struggle severely with hitting high's at all and the med's are par at best.

Overall, if you want a decent speaker, these are for you. If you are more serious in the quality of your stereo system, do yourself a favor and fork out the extra cash for a different brand such as Sony, Kenwood, Pioneer, or Rockford Fosgate.

I replaced my factory door speackers in my 08 chevy cobalt LT with a pair of these and WOW! Everyone knows the Kicker brand so i was worried on them having more bass then vocal. I wanted to be able to hear the words over bass. Wanted to be able to hear my music and not just feel it. I dont think i could have picked a better pair. Coming from factory to these is just mind blowing. you will love them.

Kick ass Speakers!!

April 13, 2017

I just got these speakers installed along with a Boss double din stero 80watts x4 and 15RMS x4 channel and let me tell you these speakers are loud!! Way better than my factory speakers. I currently only have kickers on the front doors, I will have to upgrade the rear deck in the future, once I do have them I will update also I am pretty sure I won't need a amp for these speakers because their just right!

I've had these speakers for over 20 days, they are great replacements to my factory BMW speakers that were "sabotaged."

Dont think, just buy

From the build quality to the looks to the feel, and most importantly sound. This brand and these speakers are top notch! They have a nice heavy magnet, but are very low profile. If you replaced all 4 stock speakers to these, you don't need a sub, these provide nice accurate low end bass, just not a ton of it. I slapped these in my Honda Crv and couldn't be more pleased!

Great sound quality

March 26, 2017

My system is at it's beginning stages. These Kickers replaced my factory for speakers and are currently being powered by my Pioneer CD player. They keep up fairly well with my JL Audio 12w3v3 which is being pushed by 500 watts,but turned down at the deck. It will be much better when I get the second amp at wired in to lower them.

I would suggest these to friends and family.

The speakers are great, pros: ( ?° ?? ?°) cons: minor buzz/high pitched sound if you listen real close, maybe its just me when im using the aux cord, not sure. In the process of Installing an amp to get the full potential out of 'em.

I am not a pro when it comes to speakers. But these are a great sounding speaker for my JK. Nice clean sound, not too difficult to install. Only downfall is having to shave off some of the edge of the bracket because it wouldn't fit evenly.

December 26, 2016

These speakers sound great. They don't have a lot of bass but I don't have a lot of power going to it. So with the full 300w it would have good bass. But otherwise they sound great.

I just had stock speakers in my car. I replaced them with these kicker speakers. I put them in the front and rear of my car and the difference was awesome. I would recommend to everyone. They sound great. Even my friends noticed the difference as soon as they heard them for the first time.

July 11, 2016

The speakers were replacement for 1994 set that had failed. They arrived quickly and packaging was great. The wiring was different than mine so had to fuss around whit that. I plan on ordering a second set as all in the vehicle will need to be replaced.

You be the judge

June 5, 2016

I have a 2002 BMW 325i. All the speakers (5 1/2s) were blown prior to purchase. Original equipment was "eh" on my list. I wanted less expensive but decent quality speakers with decent sound. I wanted some bass as well as sound in my vehicle period. I was told Kicker was not that great blah blah blah buy a few stereo shop guys trying to get me to buy otherwise. I chose these because I've heard kicker in other vehicles and I wanted to judge for myself.

Purchased these for a decent price and he shopping was fast and packaged well. Sonic electronic is a great company. That's my opinion.

After installation I have them a couple days of light playing to break them in and then I cranked up the bass (OEM head unit from BMW) and increased the volume. Well I was impressed. They handled bass farely well (Not a subwoofer). They did what most infinity, Bose systems would do given only having two speakers working in the rear deck of the vehicle. Of course if pushed too hard with the wrong/right type of music they will sound a little distorted. AGAIN, they are not subwoofers.

I eventually teamed these up with a set of Cadence 3 way component set for the front and the sound came more to life. All of it still running off the factory head unit and amp in the rear panel. New head unit on the way along with amps and subs install will make a great system.

I would recommend these to the novice to intermediate listeners. If you are into competition then you won't care for these anyway. For the price point, these Kickers do an excellent job

Great little speakers

June 2, 2016

These are loud and sound is clear with good range. Bass is always lacking on any of these size speakers,but my 6x9s in the rear handle that very well. I would recommend these to anyone and they are slim enough to fit in my chevelles kick panels.

These kickers kick a$$...

March 24, 2016

I got these for my 05 Honda Element and they fit like a glove. According to Crutchfield I was supposed to have to cut on the area around the speaker insert to accommodate them, but nope. Easiest install ever. I can't say enough good things about these speakers. Nice highs, even midst and suitable bass...awesome!!

Ordered these along with the CS 6x9s, got em amped and they are very strong, high-quality speakers. To be honest you do not need a sub with these unless you're just like me, I like to have a little extra bass, but these hit nicely enough just amped up. Good, budgetable speakers, I will definitely upgrade to the higher level kickers next time to see if they out perform these.
