    I'm Impressed

    I've been out of the audio world for a little while. I hung up my wire crimps and left the door panels intact on my last two vehicles because I decided I wanted to try a different hobby. I bought vehicles that had pretty good sounding systems, just so I wouldn't even be tempted to tear open a dash. BUT, I bought a little work truck just to save miles on my other vehicles recently. So I had to. Couldn't help it at all. I've bought some pretty high end speakers in the past for other builds, so I knew what I was looking for. I opted for these because of the price point (because work truck) and because of the reviews. After installation, I have to say these things sound impressively clean. They have a nice and well rounded sound that the stock speakers were really lacking. Point being, I did not expect to get this decent of a sound at this price. I guess the times really did change quite a bit while I was away. Go buy these.

    Great speakers

    Dont be afraid to buy these speakers. The audio installer told me not to get them that people say not good and complain that there factory speakers were better. He was totally WRONG. Even on my factory stereo they sound great. I purchased 4 of them for each door and only installed 2 so far and what a difference it made. My jeep now has bass. I can only imagine what they are going to sound like once I install the other 2, my new JVC head unit and a 600w kicker amp. I don't know why people say even the best buy installer there not that good. Because they are. For 59.00 a pair you cant go wrong. They must be used to 500.00 speakers. A must buy product.....

    2014 Jeep Patriot w/Boston

    Name brand head unit 50W max X 4, no external amps, a pair of nice 6 by 9s from another brand in the front, and a pair of these Kicker CSs in the rear door. All brands I'm using play well together. The Kickers are a snug fit in the Patriot, but DO fit. Was able to use the 4 factory screws by getting them all started before tightening them down. Not much room for a sub-woofer in the Patriot, but not sure I want/need one after installing these 6 by 9s. I now have way more bass, crisp highs, and near perfect vocals, with less door rattle than stock speakers. Sounds like a concert in the Jeep now. Definitely will sound deaden the doors because they need it. Will also add an amp and that might be it!! I listen to a variety of music. I threw everything at these from hi vocal intense music to extreme bass check tracks and these didn't flinch at anything!!

    These speakers are awesome. I had purchased some pioneer speakers for my new system and found out the research I had done was not right. They were the wrong size. The internet said after giving the make model and year of my truck were completely wrong. I took them back and was asked by the tech if I just wanted new or something that sounded better. I said a little of both. He told me about these Kicker speakers and was able to hear the difference. Wow a great deal of difference. BTW 2012 Nissan Frontier king cab take 6X9 in front and 61/2 in back. You will need a speacial bracket for the back speaker or you will have to cut the old speaker out of the Oem bracket it is mounted in. Then screw the new into the old bracket.

    Awesome sound, and I am a real music enthusiast, listen I like all types of music and I want to hear every instrument. I paired these things to a kicker (4) channel 300 amplifier and they are awesome! I'm running them on my stock unit in my 2014 Ram and they are great! It's about 20X sound difference. I installed mines myself but that's because I know exactly what I'm doing, but if you are thinking of doing the same seek professional advice unless you know what you are doing. But I'm very proud of my purchase and I will be finishing my system off with subs in a few weeks! Hope this review has helped you in your search and Kicker as always you rock!

    These Speakers Thump

    Posted
    Rizzy

    I bought & installed these after reviewing & listening to (what seemed like hundreds of other) speakers about (2) months ago. I have paired them with some kicker 6x5's (alpine x-a70f 4-channel amp) in the door, & some 12" subs (alpine mrv-500 monoblock), in the trunk....& my God the whole thang in one word.....THUMPS! Kicker has done an AMAZING job....once again Bestbuy you have made this customer SATISFIED. (even had the nerve to arrive early).....but to experience the full thump (just like with any set of 6x9's) you have to hook them up to a decent amplifier.

    Bass I was looking for.

    Bought these to replace the rear deck speakers in my '99 Accord. Paired them with Kicker 6 1/2" door speakers. Have them connected to a Kenwood head unit. Plenty of bass for me, however, they will not rattle any windows. Maybe vibrate the mirrors a little. The highs are fine for the price point. I'm no audiophile, but i am pleased with the excellent improvement over the stock speakers. My installation required drilling a few new mounting holes. No big deal. Don't hesitate to buy these if you are on a budget.

    Installed a new receiver on my boat only to find the speakers were rotted. Quickly jumped on BestBuy.com looking for 6x9's under $100. After reading reviews I settled on these Kickers. Couldn't be happier! They actually outperform the Alpines I have mounted in the rear. Crisp highs, solid lows...mid is average but I usually have the mid at 0 or 1 anyway. Overall, great product for the dollars spent.

    It was black Friday and I decided to check out the savings, I wasn't planning on making a purchase but the savings were looking you really good. A nice young man recommended some speakers but JESSICA RUSSEL from the car stereo department told me my car needs the kickers (because of many reasons)and without hesitation I made my purchase. She knows my car better than me and therefore I would never go anywhere else. Quality like that you cannot teach that's why she is the best.

    Bought these after I blew through 2 pairs of 6×9s on my Road Glide. They're not waterproof, but I don't care seeing as I have covers. They have decent bass,but cant handle too much. Vocals are pretty crisp,get the warranty if you buy these,I have a feeling that they're going to go pretty soon lol. I have them on a JL Adudio 240 and I'm beating them to death. The warranty replaces them with no questions asked.

    I replaced all stock speakers on my 2010 Corolla. I have a Sony receiver that has 55 watts RMS and it pairs nicely with these speakers. Stock speakers were hilarious when I saw them. Just paper and a tiny magnet. Way more bass now and so much more midrange coming from the back. All Best Buy installed. Very happy.

    The speakers work fine “now”’with the new radio receiver. However they were installer recommended and were not properly “matched” with the output of the radio. I had to go the another Best Buy to get a new “head unit” that has the capability to blend the radio receiver unit properly with the speakers.

    I bought these speakers for my Dodge Charger, after buying another brand that didn’t fit! I ended up looking up the brands that would fit and these were on the list. I replaced the rear deck speakers with these, and I am very happy with them. So happy in fact, I’m doing my door speakers next, with these same Kicker 6x9 speakers.

    These were on sale at the same time as a pair of JBL 6x9 3-way speakers so I bought both and only kept the one I liked more. Sadly, this is the one I returned. It's not bad by any means, but the JBL has crisper highs and clearer mids, which pair better with a nice sub, all for around the same price.

    Bought these to replace my old DS kicker speakers. The bass doesn't sound as great as the DS speakers. The magnet is smaller than the old DS kickers so that might have something to do with it. But these would be good upgrades from factory if you buy them on sale like I did.

    I bought these to replace 1990 factory speakers. They were not as loud as the original, but using a factory head unit its gonna be that way. They do sound good considering. The sound is a bit fuller than original. I will buy the matching set for the back soon.

    I am upgrading my stereo speakers, and bought these kicker cs 6x9's. I have them amplified by an old school Cadence amp giving them about 100 watts, and these things put out some serious sound. These sound crisp, clean, and have a very tight bass note. I am extremely happy with my purchase, and will definitely recommend to others.

    Speakers fit into the space, as advertised. They replaced 1997 speakers so obviously would sound better. Because former speakers had amplifiers built into them, I had to hire an auto radio shop to install them. Limited use of them so far, however.

    I matched these with a pair of the 6.75 coaxial speakers from kicker and man what a combo. These add the thump in the rear deck but also apply I hint of highs and mids to make a complete sound stage... Use these with an amplifier and youll be waking your neighbors up......
