Great sound, so much better than the stock speakers. You hear the entire audio frequency range over the stock muddy one's. Turn up the volume and these speakers get even better.

Pros: everything fit like a glove

For the price, you can't beat the sound. I have a Kenwood Excel HU to a MTX 4CH giving shy of 75w per channel. These things are good! Pushing bass @ 80hz+ @ -12db and they hold very well. Previously had them with no amp and 55wx4 HU and did get some distortion at high volume 75% with a preset "ROCK" EQ. Once powered correctly, they just took off and never looked back!

Pros: Solid build.

Cons: Meh.

They fit perfectly in my 2006 Silverado regular cab, with some drilling required. Installation was very easy with the install kit. So far they sound great! I also purchased the Kenwood Excelon KFC-X463C

Pros: Easy install

Kenwood KFC-X174. Great speakers!

Bob from Missouri on 4/13/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These speakers replaced the factory Bose speakers in my Silverado 2500HD, and there is no comparison! These speakers are so much more clear and crisp than the ones I replaced. You may find these speakers for a better price, but the extra parts and mounting hardware that Crutchfield supplies makes this the best deal by far. (Not to mention their phone support. Best tech support that I have ever had the opportunity to work with!)

Just replaced the factory speakers in the front door of my 2017 Hyundai Accent. Can NOT wait to get a second pair to replace the ones in the back door. I am amazed at the difference these speakers make to the sound quality of the factory stereo. The new Pioneer goes in tomorrow along with the subs so I'm really looking forward to how everything sounds together. I would highly recommend these speakers for sure!!

Features

Woofers: The woofer cones are made of injection-molded polypropylene. This process of cone molding assures a uniform cone thickness for superior linearity and clarity. It is also light weight and rigid for decreased distortion and improved bass response.

Mounting: Without an adapter, the KFC-X174 speakers fit standard 6-3/4" applications. Given their required cutout, they will also fit 6-1/2" applications without an adapter, but new screw holes must be drilled. Using the included adapter brackets they can be mounted in a variety of 6-1/2" and 6-3/4" applications, without any modification. Enter you vehicle information to confirm fit.

Warranty Note: Although these speakers come with a 1-year warranty card, they are covered by the Kenwood eXcelon 2-year warranty.

will the kenwood kfc174 door speakers sound good with a factory head unit from a 2012 honda accord ex-l?

Q
I have kenwood kfcx174 door speakers and I want to know what size amp I should run to push these speakers?
[ Reece  Aug 07, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your speakers I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system.
