Conclusion: First off these speakers are awesome! I needed to find back speakers to even out my higher notes, since my subs drowned out all the highs, these did the job! I don't even have an amp hooked up to them and they still sound awesome. Another thing, the magnets on these speakers are huge! I man they barely fit in my car because of them. I would deffinetly recomend these speakers and will probably buy them again in the future.
Conclusion: These kicker speakers can really take a serious beating. The highs are crystal clear. The bass is HUGE! People tell me that they think I have a sub woofer in the trunk. I have these speakers powered by a alpine amp. For the money you cannot go wrong. Trust me.
Conclusion: At first I bought one set of these and put them in the rear of my 04 hyundai tiburon to relace the paper cone JBL's it came with. They were so good i decided to cut holes in my door panels and install a pair in the front with dynamat as well. Now i have a polk audio 4 channel pushing 100W to each one. They live up to their specs and more. SOOOO LOUD!
Conclusion: I bought these things and hooked them up to an aftermarket head unit and wow was I surprised how well they pound with what little power they get. I also bought the 5-1/4s and the whole system preforms beyond my expectations. You play the right song and they will hit hard.
Conclusion: I had two five year old pioneer 6x8 3ways to be replaced with the KS693. Both the Pioneer and the Kicker speakers (ks693 6x9 3 way) were powered by a Rockford Fosgate two channel amp. Well I'm dissatisfied because the kicker put out less bass then pioneers did. I am very surprised by this mostly by looking at the two speakers side by side, the kicker is far larger and has a massive magnet on the back. But I guess looks aren't everything.
Conclusion: These suckers kick hard, and the sound is very clean. For the price you can't go wrong with these. I don't even have an amp hooked up to them yet and they are still louder than my other speakers that HAD a amp. I would recommend them for anyone looking for good speakers that don't cost an arm and a leg.
Conclusion: I really like mine, i got them 6 months ago. They work great and never had a problem. They have crystal clear sound no matter how loud you play them. they have great bass when you dont have a sub like me. Plus i got them for a decent price and i would recommend them to anyone. They were easy to put in and it only took me maybe a couple of hours to install myself. I got them because they have great capablities and that they were such a great deal.
Conclusion: These were my first pair of speakers I've purchased. I had a couple friends who were kicker fans so I decided to give these a shot after my stocks blew. Everyone swears I have subs! These hit that good! The quality is clear and the bass is there. I cant wait to have these hooked up to an amp and see the real power!
