    Kicker does just that.

    As an audiophile, musician and tech guru, and envineer to say I have high standards is an accurate but likely an understatement. For what these speakers are intended for and their price point they are a relative bargain. Especially if you can find them on sale even more so. I was initially considering the JBL's but I figured I would poke around before buying. I pushed the button for these after the JBL's and I was taken aback. They not only had more present low end but also a higher, more detailed and focused high end. The midrange was about equal between the two. So I sat back and forth back and forth and I honestly couldn't believe the kickers! They sounded better. With higher power handling and dare I say clearer sound with more bass, I was sold. I have them installed in my Focus RS being pushed by a blaupunkt 175w x4 RMS and they love being pushed. I have an L7 12" Solobaric powered by a 2400w Kicker amp and they have no issue keeping up. Bravo Kicker.

    I got these to replace completely fine stock speakers in my 2017 accord. They require that you buy a mount for these to fit right and this is a must. They just dont sound the same with out them. That being said, I bought 4 of these, a 600 watt alpine multichannel ampalong with a 12in sub and 1500 watt mono amp. So far bestbuy has only had time to get the 2 front speakers put in and not even the amp to them. Still, they hit, they are super loud, and more than twice as good as what the car came with. I'm just excited to throw the amp on and see what 150 watts sounds like instead of the 62.50 they are each getting right now because they are already so amazing. If I can find a way to fit 2 more in the rear doors and another set in the back window I'm going to. THESE ARE A MUST BUY AND EVEN AT 50 RMS THEY ROCK.

    Perfect for stock stereos

    These are ideal for replacing stock speakers using the stock head unit. Much more efficient. Nice highs and good mids. Bass is tight but not terribly low. Easy installation, but I recommend Dynamat or some sort of damping material. I use these with a Kicker Hideaway powered sub in my 2017 F150. Perfect combination and easy to dial in the right crossover and bass level. These speakers really aren't made for big systems with powerful amps. Kicker has other speakers better suited for that. They are for factory speaker replacement with a stock head unit, and are a big improvement for not a lot of cash. I am very pleased with them and would not hesitate to buy them again.

    Works with stock component speakers

    I have a 2010 Corolla and thought that any upgrade to the front speakers would involve replacing the small component speakers near the side mirrors. This is not the case. Thanks to my knowledgeable Best Buy installer, Ryan, I learned that with these speakers installed I could just keep the old component speakers too. And, they all work! Not only is this great because of the savings on the install, but now I have a much better high frequency response in the front. Keeping the speakers hidden was important to me as well, and a component upgrade would have been pretty obvious. This may not be the proper crossover technique, but I am really happy with the sound at such a small price.

    They clip even with no power to them there sensitive at far to many points and cant handle most high and low in the majority of music. Far to sensitive was a complete waste and i bought two sets of 6 1/2 and 1 set of 6x9 and ill deffentaly never buy these or recommend tp anyone im so disappointed its unreal wish i could return them for something ells. I've delt with audio for years and am exsperince with true audio competitions and quality speakers and kicker truly took 5 steps back with these models. Waste of a few hundres bucks in the end go with there older models or just avoid anything new kicker. Its becoming true trash audio im very upset.. Worst speakers ive ever owned

    I purchased these speakers to replace the stock, worn out speakers in my Corvette. I was limited by space on the speakers I could use unless I wanted to do a lot of cutting or fabrication, which I didn't. The Kicker CS Series speakers were shallow enough to fit in my speaker enclosures without any cutting. These Kicker speakers have really good sound considering the low cost and were an improvement over my 25 year old Bose speakers. If you're on a budget or just don't feel the need to spend thousands on an audio system, I would recommend these speakers.

    I purchased two pairs for my pickup. Speakers came with the necessary wires, and were easy to install. Make sure you check the mounting brackets to make sure you don't need the spacers before purchase. For $35 a pair, I couldn't be happier with how they sound. I listen to a lot of rock, acoustic and metal, and they handle the range great. The bass gets a little muddy at high volumes, but far surpass stock speakers, and for the price, I can't ask for more.

    If you are looking for a spectacular sounding door speaker, these Kickers are perfect! I had them hooked up to my JVC 6.2" RECEIVER and they ABSOLUTELY ROCK!! Crystal clear sound and excellent bass.. I also got these for the rear doors as well. I promise that if I ever need door speakers on any vehicle I own, I will always install Kickers. They are extremely easy to install as well. Plug and play in my 08 Cadillac CTS. These replaced my Bose speakers. That in its self sould say a lot!!

    Awesome Upgrade

    Looking for an upgrade for my 2013 Jeep Wrangler, I had considered the Mopar/Kicker upgrade when I was walking thru best buy and found these as an open box, for a fraction of the cost. After replacing the Soundbar Speakers, I could only be patient to change out the Dash Speakers. I am so glad I did this swap and the sound is now GREAT, cruising the interstate at only half volume to hear it with the top down and doors off, what's better right??? #JeepLife.

    So was looking to update the audio in my car. I drive a 2013 Civic Si sedan. Got 2 sets of these speaker, 2 for the front and 2 for the rear. The thing about my car is the amp in the car is the downfall, but these speakers made a difference, especially with the tweeters mounted in them. Once I upgrade the amp it'll be a night and day difference but so far a great upgrade from the stock speakers.

    These are really nice speakers. Quality is great. You have to go to a Best Buy and hear these for yourself. I used these in the back of my 2012 Nissan Frontier king cab. 61/2 is the right size for this vehicle. They do need a speacial bracket to mount these. Or you can look up on YouTube how to install with out the bracket. It's a little tricky but I was able to do it. Just make sure you get your polarity straight. If your not sure how to test for this ask the tech that installs these at Best Buy.

    Previously owned some Pioneer speakers, they great, mild bass/treble, but I am a bass-head and I found these sepakers. Installed on my 2016 Altima S in less than 15 mins (i just switched the old ones, speaker mounting adapter needed*). The bass is amazing! No problems with the sound. For some reason, the tweeters on the vehicle pop out more. Will invest in Kicker from now on.

    Loud & Clear

    The 6.5"s coaxials produce loud & clear mid/high range octives on higher power receivers but sound much better with an external amp. If you want bass, get a sub. The noises (distortion) you hear from pushing to much low end to full-range speakers is not bass & sounds just as bad to anyone unlucky enough to be within earshot as it should to you. Proper setup and devices give you great sound and the rest of the world will be happier for it.

    Had previously purchased a pair of kicker door speakers for my other vehicle. Sounded great! Decided to buy new pair for my 350Z, impressed with the sound! Two speakers after a few months went bad, just started sounding off! With warranty, had them replaced and know I'm a happy person once again. I recommend their products

    Installed these in the rear side panels of a Toyota Sienna. I couldn't find aftermarket mounts, so I had to cut out the center section of the factory speakers and use them as mounts for these new ones. I had to place one washer under each mounting screw against the body of the van so that the speaker magnets wouldn't bottom out. They sound great with the factory receiver and no amp. Definitely worth the effort to upgrade.

    I bought these to replace door speakers in my 2006 P T cruiser convertible. I bought the adapter kit so that I would not have to redrill holes. Everything fit perfectly. The sound, particularly when compared to the O E speakers is excellent. I am extremely pleased and would gladly purchase these again.

    Bought these as replacement speakers for my Jeep Wrangler. The fit and form look great, no real plug and play type issues. However, they still have a hollow sound much like the factory speakers. This may be a Jeep sound bar design issue rather than a speaker issue, but if you are going to upgrade, get proper enclosures built so you aren’t wasting time and money. I would not use these with an amp.

    Looked at a lot of speakers but these stuck out since my stock door speakers have had their day. After about 3 days of breaking them in they sound amazing. Great quality and the warranty was cheap and covers 4 years replacement. Can't beat that! My only con is the bass gets choppy without EQ adjusted just right at really high volume but who plays them full blast all the time.

    I wanted to upgrade the front and rear factory speakers in my truck. It's easy enough to be a no-brainer with regards to the difficulty. These speakers are so much better than the originals. They work well with my factory radio/CD/XM/BT. I'll be adding an amp later which should kick it up a notch.
