What customers say about "Key Specs"
Kicker DS60 2-Way Car Coaxial Audio Speakers
  • Excellent sound!!!!! From reggae to hip hop to acoustic, these speakers bring out ever detail of the music.
  • These speakers are great! alot of sound for the price. very clear and loud. this was a very good choice for my 1999 Tahoe.
  • Clear sound and good power handling.
  • For the price, it's not a bad buy. These speakers were not much more than my stock speakers. Which were pitiful. 05 Tacoma to be exact. Most definitely recommend paying the extra $50 for a great set of speakers.
  • The tweeters is the best part of it. When i got my boxes it says 200 watts total so they are each 100 max peak power and 50w rms. do not buy them for bass. they sound clear but only because they tweeter does a great job. but over all they are ok, they sound better then most stock speakers.
Kicker DS65 Coax Car Speakers
  • Very nice speakers. I installed these in a jeep soundbar and made a big difference. Probably really should be powered by an amp to get the best sound out of them, but I have no doubt that these speakers will last for a long time.
  • Amazing speakers, right price, right amount of power and it's a highly recommended brand. Love my speakers came fast and I got upgraded to the next style of speaker without even doing anything Love them and would keep buying over and over.
  • They have a rating of 50 watts rms and a 100 watts peak. I really dont think they would handle that much power. I am running an aftermarket radio and I think that is more then enough power to them.
  • They fit my jetta 2000 door, they are good better than the original ones. The quality is excellent. They are not power full as they look at the picture but they are good for the cheap price .
  • They are being driven by an aftermarket Head unit 50 x 4. I have found that at low volume the bass is non existent. At moderate volume they sound good. Beyond that they distort. We mostly listen to rock. I believe they are a descent replacement speaker.

What customers say about "Audio"
Kicker DS60 2-Way Car Coaxial Audio Speakers
  • They sound good, clear and muck better than my stock ones in my dodge ram, although I was hoping to have a little more thump without a sub. As the stock speakers in my girlfriends elantra.
  • Awesome speakers, I don't have the base up to high on these but the sound quality is really good.
  • Awesome sounding and on top of that they upgraded the package to the newer model!! I was so happy.
  • Bought these about 6 months ago........the low ends have already gone out on 3 out of the 4 speakers.
  • These speakers are basic, average at best. Replacing my factor speakers with these Kicker speakers was a waste of money. There is no improvement in sound.
Kicker DS65 Coax Car Speakers
  • Installed the Kicker DS65's in my Silverado, replacing the factory door speakers. The Kickers are a nice upgrade and offer clear sound, with excellent treble and midrange. Bass is crisp but not very strong.
  • If you want an affordable set of speakers that have a decent sound then these are them. Yes these are made by Kicker but these are their bottom line speakers..I like them for the price and they do have a better sound then my stock speakers.
  • The speakers are amazing! All of the frequencies are very present and pronounced, They also can take a lot of power.
  • They lack good bass response and over-accentuate the mid-highs. Even after adjusting my stereo's built-in EQ, I wasn't too happy with the final sound.
  • Sounds ok but there is zero bass to these speakers. I don't crank my radio loud but if I were to do it again it would be different speakers.

What customers say about "Features"
Kicker DS60 2-Way Car Coaxial Audio Speakers
  • Total happy and ready to install.
  • Easy instal. Put them in all 4 doors of my 2005 Chevy Silverado. Fit fine, even though they were bigger than my stock back speakers the door panel still fit back on fine with no rubbing.
  • Best speakers ever, fast delivery, easy install, there is absolutely nothing bad i can say about this seller and these speakers :)
  • Fast Delivery...Excellent Product!! Arrived way before Christmas Day and was able to install. Would buy from again. Thank you.
Kicker DS65 Coax Car Speakers
  • They're great sounding replacements for your car (keep in mind that you MAY need a slight modification in order to install them; they are slightly bigger than conventional 6.5" speakers.)
  • I put these in my wife's PT Cruiser Turbo. Pretty simple install. Just had to drill new holes for screws in the door panel.
  • They worked well put them in my boat, seem to hold up to the pounding so far, but the tweeters are just average.
  • Speakers sound great for the price! Way better quality then stock speakers. Very clear highs and good lows. Easy to install and came with everything needed to mount. Great buy!
  • Short wires for connecting,maybe 6 inches long. So If you need to run new long wire be prepared.
