Not what you would expect of the Kenwood Brand....
5 January 2014
Summary: Sound quality of these speakers is not what I expected. I have used Kenwood since I was young and come to trust their brand. I installed with all new components, Head Unit and Amplifier. These were installed with the 4 channel 720 watt Kenwood Amp. They should have just JAMMED!!!
Summary: I bought these beause I was so disappointed with the Kenwood KFC-C6865S "Sport Series" ones I bought originally. These KFC-X683C "eXcelon" are the real deal. Couldn't be happier with these in the front doors of a E350 Super Duty van w/OEM 6-speaker radio. I will be adding them in the back doors when time permits.
Pros: Clean sound over the entire spectrum. Clean highs, midrange, and more bass than I'd expected from speakers this size.
Summary: I would definitely buy these again. They have a pleasant, fairly neutral tone that isn't too bright. I usually prefer my music to be balanced, and these do that nicely.
Pros: Pleasant, neutral tone. Fairly full range. Decent power handling range. 3 ohm.
Cons: Trying to figure out 3 ohm wattage in a sea of 4 ohm wattage. Based on my calculation you're safe running a 45w@4ohm amp assuming it's 3 ohm stable. I really think that while these do a good job on bass, but if you've ever had a sub before, I think you'll still want one. With these you hear the bass drum beats, but you don't feel them. Really not a bad trade off. Excellent all round speaker but lacks that thump at low volume. Subs do that better.
Summary: Great speaker & simple install. Highs are crisp and clear and it has a solid woofer to produce a balanced sound. These are in my front doors and I love them. Solid product, constructed very well, and are sure to last a long time.
Summary: I am very pleased with these speakers. I installed them in my 2013 F150 super crew to replace factory speakers with the factory Ford sync system. At first I was a little skeptical when I was installing them but once they were installed and I took the first listen I was sold. The fit is perfect and install was easy. Now the sound, I consider myself to be picky and these speakers sound good to me.
Pros: Well balanced great sound with factory head unit.
Summary: Just installed these in my 2013 mustang, in the rear deck! Man o man these babys rock. I listen to all music genres, and they vibrate the seat! Huge improvement over factory! Great bass with out the factory speaker distortion! They sounded great as soon as I plugged them in, no speaker break in required!
Summary: So after much debate between different speakers I went with the Kenwood Excelon 2-ways. Went to the local electronics store and to my surprise the kenwoods sounded much better than the rest. The Alpine type S, Infinity reference and Polk 6x8's sounded flat and not nearly as full as the Kenwoods. Was sold and like always Crutchfield included the printed instruction sheet on installation and factory speaker connectors.
Pros: Nice full sound, great highs and mids along with a good bass presence
Summary: I ORDERED THESE SPEAKERS FROM BILL'S ELECTRONIC GEAR. I GOT THEM VERY FAST, UNFORTUNATELY THEY DIDN'T FIT MY VEHICLE ( 1996 FORD EXPLORER), MY FAULT. I SENT THEM BACK AND GOT SPEAKERS THAT DO FIT MY VEHICLE,KENWOOD KFC-C6894 6X8 3 WAYS. THE TURNAROUND TIME, AGAIN WAS VERY FAST.THESE SPEAKERS SOUND INCREDIBLE, MUCH BETTER THAN STOCK. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE FOR EXCELLENT SOUND THAT WON'T BREAK THE BANK.
