Bought 2 pairs of these to replace OEM speakers in my 2013 kia rio hatchback. I noticed a small improvement over my stock speakers. Once i upgraded my stereo head unit to the Sony XAV-AX3000, these kickers really shined. Highs and mids were just amazing and the bass was also very good. I’m not an audiophile, but i can now listen to crispy clear music. My commute is 50 minutes each way, and i no longer dread it due to my new kickers.
One thing to keep in mind, these kickers have a 100W rms (300W peak) and my stereo head unit only provides 20W rms (55w peak) and that seems to be enough juice to get these kickers rolling. Like, you can hear them from a couple blocks away. May look into getting an amplifier (in the future) for these little guys to see if that helps to bring more oomph out of them as it seems my head unit is bottlenecking their performance (based on the numbers, although they sound great already).
Really can’t recommend these enough, especially if you have a long commute!!!
Purchase and pickup was a breeze. Installed in a 2016 JKU Wrangler, in the soundbar. Replaced Infiniti Reference 6532ex. Connected a Kenwood KAC 1814 45 watt RMS marine amp. The speakers are as good as I have heard - as good or better than similar size Polk speakers. They handle bass better than any 6.5" speaker I have heard. I was considering a subwoofer, and I will not need one. In a Wrangler, it is difficult to fill the space with good sound with the top off, and these Kickers helped me do that with the JL C1-650 components in the front. The JL's had to "break in" to where they compete with the low frequency handling like these Kickers. If you are not impressed, you are probably underpowering the speakers by driving them with your head unit - get an amp. Like others mentioned, if you want thump that other drivers here, get a sub. These just sound really good. NOTE: the Metra adapter 82-6600 has too much depth to mount with these speakers in the JKU soundbar. It will contach the soundbar cover. I will have to add spacers to the cover and find longer screws to mount them.
I installed these in my 2002 Tahoe, and they seem to be working great so far after nearly a month of usage.
The installation process is fairly easy. These speakers actually will fit in the bracket that the factory speakers were in. The speaker wires will either have to be crimped or soldered. It’s also possible to purchase an adapter that will plug into the factory connection.
Overall, these seem to work great. You will want to have a subwoofer with these as they don’t have amazing bass. These speakers will give you that little rumble that you can feel in the doors and floor.
Installed a set of these in my 94 yj sound bar. Can’t compare to the old speakers (they were too far gone) but I’ve had some good quality speakers in other vehicles that these are comparable with, The bass out of these is great, if your want the bass feel of a sub these aren’t a substitute but definitely strong punchy bass for their size. Tweeters are crisp. I’m running them through an 80w/ channel amp, note sure how they would sound without. After install had lots it rattles in sound bar because of bass so I stuffed it with poly fill and problem solve.
I really love these speakers. I bought them to replace the stock speakers in my truck and they sound great even without an amplifier. As an added bonus, the polypropylene cones are able to withstand the hot climate that I live in much better than other cone materials.
Working Great fit like a glove in My 2000 Jeep XJ`s Doors Now my Doors Sound like subwoofers lol Will update when I get my Double DIN Radio installed as the current radio is a lil decrepit and was only put in as a test cuz the Stock radio was in it when I bought it in march and had NO SOUND at all.. turned out all I needed was to run a new set of wires to the doors as something was wrong with the truck`s harness apparently
i would add a pic but u wouldnt be able to see them behid the stock speaker Grill on the doors
A:AnswerRyan, you must find out what size speakers were originally installed in your vehicle. A six and a half inch speaker will not "fit" in a five and a half inch hole. The amp has nothing to do with this install.
A:AnswerYes , I have a 2013 GMC Sierra texas edition . I used the speaker Kit from Best Buy also. The speaker housing is loose if you just use the one factory screw , rattles when driving . I drilled a two small holes on the bottom side of the kit. “The holes are already there “ . The two screws to tighten the whole housing. Worked great
A:AnswerYou would need a wiring harness for connecting speakers directly or you can cut off the factory speaker connector and splice the wires directly. You will also need a Nissan bracket adapter to mount to the speaker. This will keep you from having to drill new holes.
A:AnswerAs far as I know it is $65 for front and rear speakers but if you are installing component speakers it cost more $99+. Also you can get a lot of savings(free installs) by purchasing the Total Tech. membership (199.99/yr) but only downside is that you need to have you own mounting hardware and any wires you give them to install must still be in the original packaging, wires that are in “mint” condition won’t be installed because there’s a liability on their end,
