    Great Factory Replacements!

    I drive a 2009 Mercury Mariner/Ford Escape. The front passenger speaker blew and it was bothering me for quite a while. I set the system to just use the rear speakers for about two months and finally got fed up. So did a bit of internet searching and found these speakers and they were in stock and at the right price. It took me 45 minutes to replace both left and right front door speakers with s simple splice for each. WOW! Your factory speakers are so poor compared to these. The sound has richer base and you'll hear sounds you didn't hear before with your stock speakers. If my ride wasn't so old and I wasn't thinking about trading it in, I'd probably swap out the back door speakers even though they sound pretty good. Yes, I'm happy, pleased, whatever with my selection and swapping them out was a cake walk. Anyone can do it. Look for some YouTube videos for assistance and good luck!

    I bought these for my 2003 Ford Excursion and wow what a difference. I replaced my old factory Speakers and tried these straight from my Pioneer NEX head unit and the sound was so much clearer. The highs in these 2 ways blew me away. I wasn't expecting a whole lot from these tweeters but I was very nicely surprised. And the mids were awesome too. I hooked them to a 4 channel Kicker amp and mainly run these for my mids and highs and the amp really brought them to life!!! For the price you can't beat these Kickers.

    The upside with these is they have a much clearer sound in the upper ranges than my stock speakers. Easy to install if you get the wiring harnesses. The downside is I lost some lower end base compared to the stock speakers. To me that is not a huge issue. I can always add a sub woofer. These were on sale for almost half off. So for the money (two sets) it was hard to beat. If I wanted to spend more I could have gotten speakers with a range that went lower than these but I was not looking to spend a lot given that I plan to replace the stock head unit with an after market. These went on a 2012 f150.

    I seriously don't understand the 5-star reviews

    I am not an audiophile by ANY means, but I just can't understand all the 5 star reviews for these speakers. I decided to replace the basic Ford factory speakers in my 12 year old F-150. I purchased these online based on the reviews and price. I installed one of these so that I could compare the sound to the remaining factory speakers. Guess what - the cheap factory speakers sounded better. They were louder, clearer, and had better bass. I literally could not believe my ears. The Kickers are going back tomorrow.

    Had two pair installed into a 2012 Mazda6, as one of the stock speakers had begun to buzz. Much improved sound, overall. Would buy again. I checked fit using crutchfield.com. I couldn’t find anything on best buy that would check for vehicle suitability. This is non-Bose (stock) system. Interestingly, everything I researched indicated the front speakers were woofer only; that was not what I found. I had all four speakers the same. Made me feel better about replacement, since I replaced with all 2-way coaxial.

    Couldn't find any Polk Audio in 6x8, so I gave kicker a try. Well, they get a little loud, really no distortion at high volume. More of a punchy bass, rather than deep. I prefer deep bass, but that's what I have a sub in the trunk for. Honestly if you want to get the best out of them; hook them up with a good small amp and they'll sound amazing. It is a good upgrade from factory speakers, if that's what you looking for.

    Purchased 2 sets of these speakers on the recommendation of Geek Squad Tech. Got one set half off so it was a good deal. They sound great for the cost. I was looking to improve sound of a 2011 Mercury Mariner I just purchased used but couldn't do the whole system. Glad I did it! These speakers can handle volume without distorting while at the same time have excellent sound quality at a low volume. If you are looking for a low cost option with High end sound these Kickers should do the trick! Affordable choice for quality sound

    These dropped right in to the factory mounts. There are wiring adapters available, but I soldered my own connectors. These were for my son's car, so I told him we could add more power and speakers later, but he was so blown away by the sound improvement, he said he was very happy as is. His friends all asked what kind of speakers they were. I would purchase these again without hesitation!

    Easy install with the right wire adapter. Had to bend just one tab to make it fit but was super simple. Highs are so clear and night and day. Not sure about bass since I run subs and just bought to replace the muddled factory speakers in my mustang. Bought two pair and well worth the money.

    Went from factory yo a set of kickers, 2 ways for my doors. Steve was my installer in ky. Very nice sound, smooth install! Plenty of power. It was an open box item. That made the price a little sweeter. Best buy always has a great install team and they fit the doors well! Always recommend kicker speakers, and thanks best buy!

    I bought these on the recommendation of the BB installer. I needed a set of 6 x 8 speakers as an upgrade for my F150. I installed with the original head unit and boy what a diferrence! The bass is not as low as some others but these are 6 x 8's. You are not going to get bass from these very much. I find them very efficient. Next upgrade I am going to replace the head unit and buy these again for the rear doors.

    Needing new speakers for my Motor Home; and knowing Bestbuy would be the place to go, I got a great pair of KICKER - CS Series 6" x 8" 2-Way Car Speakers with Polypropylene Cones (Pair), bolted right up to where the old speakers were installed. Awesome sound, and balance. Highly recommend folks.

    I have a 2000 Expedition and it still had its OEM speakers in it. After all these years they are beyond their end of usefulness. I had an awful experience trying to find the right fit for me. An associate was working stocking the items and had no interest in helping me but after 45 minutes and using Best Buy's awesome iPhone App I finally decided on these and I am very pleased with the price and performance!

    These speakers were recommended by an Best Buy associate. After installing them they do sound better than stock but can’t get any nice mid to low bass out of them even after adjusting the es on the radio. They sound ok but if ur looking for mid to lower bass these speakers are not it

    I purchased 2 pairs of these to replace the factory speakers in my 2012 Ford Fusion with 6 speakers and Ford Sync. I was shocked at the condition of my 7 year old factory speakers. These speakers are an awesome upgrade! These are plenty loud even on factory power. They sound great too!

    I bought these to replace a a couple of Pioneers that I had blown. So now I have these Kickers in front and 2 4-way Pioneers in the back. Can't really tell any difference. Even though the Pioneers were twice the price. Well done Kicker for making an affordable and quality speaker.

    My front speakers in my truck went out and I only had the ones in the back. My husband suggested that we look around to see what we could find. Once again, we checked with Best Buy and found some great speakers for a great price. He put them in the same day without any problems. The sound is great! Thanks Best Buy for such a great sound in my truck!

    if you're looking for a upgrade from your stock speakers they are not bad but if you are already used to finding good sound quality and a richer sound environment probably not the choice these are a beginner set of bold and replacements in my opinion I just use them to upgrade my 79 Lincoln stock speakers and they are sufficient

    I purchased these speakers to go with my new Kenwood stereo. The reason I got them is because they fit in place of my factory speakers and have a good quality sound. I would recommend them to anyone wanting to replace their factory speakers.
