Priced Per Pair

2011 Kicker Authorized Online Dealer and eBay Seller

Speaker Specifications

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.
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.
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.
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.
Tweeter Size
Refers to the size of the tweeter. Typically, smaller tweeters produces less output with higher frequency response.
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.
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
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.

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.
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.
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
4-13/16" x 4-13/16" 
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.
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.

WHat is the difference between component speakers and these?
A shopper on Jan 6, 2015
Best Answer: The tweeter on a component speaker is separated from the main driver an can be placed in a more ideal area for your listening, unlike the full range speaker you have in the picture. In my opinion usually component speakers are a better way to go if you have the extra money to spare. however a full range speaker can get the job done as well if you don't have much to spend on your speakers.

how strong is the bass on these speakers?
scott S on Feb 2, 2015

Do the Kicker 40CS654 need an amplifier or can you just install them like regular speakers?
Lucas on Aug 18, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Lucas,

Ideally, you Want an amp to the Kicker 40CS654, due to the fact their power handling is all the way up 100 watts each. Your headunit [OEM or Aftermarket] will most likely NOT give you anything beyond ~15-22w RMS PER SPEAKER. So going with an awesome set of speakers like the Kicker 40CS654 is great, but kind of a bummer since you have well over 80% of performance not being used. If you don't plan on an amp, that is perfectly fine, but we suggest saving a bit of money and going with the Kicker 41DSC65 (DSC654) instead.

what is a good amp for these speakers?
A shopper on Jul 30, 2014
Best Answer: Great choice for speakers no matter what ever genres of music you listen to. They offer great balance of sound, highlighting the instruments. Choices on amplifiers that I would suggest the Rockford Fosgate R600-4d that I had in my car, or the NVX JDA800.4 which I'm upgrading to. My brother has similar setup in his Accord driven by the Kicker KX400.4. loud and clean.

SO if I want to put these on a amp. Will these be ok or should I gp with component speakers? And what kind of speakers should I used?
A shopper on Jan 6, 2015
Best Answer: This is a hard question . because indeed component speakers will be better as they have crossovers . but to be fair this speakers is good enough in everything they have crisp mids and highs . but not made for deep lows as you will need a subwoofer . I prefer to use them on rear doors or shelve . and use component speakers in the front doors ( I prefer infinity PRIMUS ) . install them with any amplifier and this will be the perfect arrange for you .

I have a Power Acoustik GT5-2500 2500W Max 5-Channel Gothic Series Class AB Car Amplifier, and two of this speaker. and a subwoofer. What would be right or better speaker match for the other two channel? should i buy two more of this speaker? or two Rockford Fosgate PPS4-6 6-1/2" Single 4 ohm Punch Series Mid-Range Driver or two Pioneer TS-M650PRO 6-1/2" PRO Series High Efficiency Mid-Range Car Speaker Drivers? please help sir which is better setup?
jhay1423 on Jan 30, 2016
Best Answer: To get your speakers to match you would want then to be around the same db rating, you wouldn't want to put a pair of speakers rated at 89db with a pair rated at 91db, the lower number means that pair would require less power to get sound from that pair and the higher numbered pair would require higher power, which means that at let's say at volume 5 for example, you would hear the one lower pair well, but probably not the other higher rated pair, as they would need more power/volume to be heard.
Also you would want to check the Frequencey Responce of the speakers you already have and make sure you are covering as much of the sound spectrum as you can, you want to reach from the Low end bass, Low-Midrange, Midrange, High-Midrange and up to the High frequencies.
You may also want to throw a capacitor on the JVC's to reduce the amount of low end frequency they receive so your amp doesn't blow them and just run them from the high end of the spectrum down to the midrange.
It also wouldn't hurt to learn how to READ up on some basic audio info, cause than you would already know what you would need to look for.
