Upgrading your factory speakers (even so-called premium sound systems, by vehicle manufacturers) and providing a superior complement to a subwoofer—without breaking the bank—is what the Kicker's DS Series component speaker systems are all about. Trademark Kicker heavy-duty motor structures and EVC™ (Extended Voice Coil) technology make their way into the woofers for real-world power handling and every DS Series system produces great performance and music realism.
Trademark Kicker Woofer Design
The Kicker DS68.2 component speaker system features sturdy 6" x 8" polypropylene woofers with ribbed, UV-treated surrounds, and built-in phase plugs to not only keep excursion linear for clean bass and quick transients, but also for butter smooth midrange response and increased dispersion. Reduced woofer mounting depth means one thing—these woofers make for an easy upgrade in a vehicle’s doors or kick panels.
Crystal Clear Highs with Advanced Crossover Options
3/4" titanium dome tweeters, with oversized voice coils, strike a perfect design balance with the woofers, adding just the right amount of crisp, clean highs. Three tweeter mounting options—flush, angled, and surface mounting—allow for easy interior integration on your car doors, A-pillars, or dash.
Seamless driver integration is handled by the included crossover network. 4,000 Hz, 12 dB/octave high and low-pass filters keep each driver focused on the frequencies they play best. Three tweeter attenuation settings of 0 dB, -3 dB, and -6 dB tailor its output based on the installation location you choose.
