Kicker 3.5" 43CSC354 into 2017 Hyundai Sonata dash

Crutchfield customer from Nicholasville, KY on 4/8/2019

2017 Hyundai Sonata ECO

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These 3.5" speakers just fit into the dash. Matched with the Kicker two ways in the doors, I think these tweeters in the dash make all the difference, make the music come alive. Used a utility knife to trim the plastic into one of the plastic speaker bags. Hard to reach, but with a sharp blade it's not too bad. Reused the front screw placement, cut a new one with the knife for the rear factory screw. So much better than the factory dash"mids".

Pros: Compact, crisp, clean highs.

Cons: None yet.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Absolutely amazing! I have no idea why anyone is saying the S's and highs are to harsh with a aftermarket headunit. I have the treble on 2 for rap and can hear vocals in the background of songs that werent audible before or 3 for metal and the cymbal just sound amazing and it fills in the highs so well i didnt know what i was missing until we put these in the car almost wish i did them before the door speakers because of how much quality these speakers brought to all the music, also was advised that bass blockers would not be needed because of frequency range so that's what i did and i agree because there is no distortion problems. Highly reccomed

Pros: Loud Clear Affordable

Cons: None unless you try to custom fit them

Harsh and raspy

Rob from Merced, CA on 1/10/2019

2016 Toyota Camry

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Granted I'm not an car audio guy. I'm a novice. I bought these because they were the cheapest available for the size I needed in my dash. They did not play well with my kenwood receiver and 6x9s in the door. As others have mentioned, the highs were really harsh and raspy. I like the guy who mentioned vocals with the letter S because that's exactly what I was experiencing. I tried tuning them down and bringing the fader back to some effect, but in the end they were just a black eye in an otherwise decent sounding system. I swapped them out with some 4" 2-way pioneers. These filled in quite a lot of missing body and response from the dash and got rid of the raspy nuisance imposed by these with minimal tuning. Maybe I missed something about the spec in selecting these, don't know. I had them installed with the factory system and they were definitely clearer than the factory speakers, but once I upgraded the receiver they were out of place and not happy at all.

Pros: Affordable

Cons: Probably not suitable for my application despite being the right size.

Too harsh for 2017 Ram non-Alpine systeM

Christopher from Houston, TX on 12/21/2018

2017 Ram 1500

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I installed these with Bass Blockets along with Kicker 6x9 in the doors to upgrade my 2017 Ram non-Alpine factory speakers, which aren't all that bad sounding. Instantly the increased clarity was noticeable, but because they are 4 ohm compared to factory 8 ohm they are much louder. Maybe that's manageable but the highs are too high and harsh. Any vocals/words with the letter S make my ears bleed! I'm still playing with the EQ but I think I will put the stock 3.5s back in unfortunately.

Pros:

Cons: Harsh sounding in 2017 Ram 1500 Flimsy speaker terminal

Sounds really good. Didn't fit exactly on the original factory adapter but good enough. The adapters that came with the speakers were way worse. It didn't fit the speaker or the car. In all, i am satisfied with the product and the technical support. They were very helpful.

Pros: Sounds clear. Easy install. Everything you need, was included. Great tech Support.

Cons: Did not fit the adapters sent with product.

Replaced the JBL speakers in the dash of my 85 Monte SS that I never was happy with. These are much better. Kind of a tight squeeze to fit into the dash, takes a little patience and finesse but fit nice.

Pros: Sound better than factory or the JBL speakers!

Cons: Obviously very little bass from such small speakers but great sound.

Fits the 2017 Ford F150 center dash perfectly, and is definitely an improvement over the stock speaker. Frequency range is limited from the stock stereo though, so can't comment on overall sound quality, but can't expect much from a 3.5" speaker. Non-SONY stereo in this vehicle.

Pros: Good fit, came with needed connectors.

Cons: none

Ordered these because I thought I had a bad speaker causing an intermittent buzz...turns out, that wasn't the problem...anyway, these speakers were a breeze to install with the included adapters, true plug and play install. Can't tell much of a difference between the stock BA speakers and these but I'm still using a factory amp. They are cheap enough to warrant keeping around.

I purchased this speaker for my 2015 ford explorer with the 9 speaker (non sony) system. this replaced the center speaker. Easy install. Like another reviewer said, I didn't hear the center speaker until it was replaced with this speaker. Note, I am using the factory head unit without an amp. Also, buy the post connectors that crutchfield recommends. they are awesome

Pros: increased clarity, will make you want to upgraded the rest of the speakers

Cons: none that I can think of

Harsh sound with my stereo

billy from Ray City, GA on 9/22/2018

2015 Ram 1500

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

DISCLAIMER -- My rating is specific to my vehicle, 2015 Ram 1500 Crew (non Alpine). I installed these speakers in the dash. They are the usual quality Kicker speakers, as I've had a few different pair and have two sets of their "replacement speakers" in my Jeep. However. In THIS application, these particular speakers are HARSH. To the point of being painful. The "S's" in lyrics are distorted at medium volumes. Cymbal hits are distorted at medium volumes. Vocals are otherwise excellent. Only a little invasion of lower freq's at high volumes. An inline passive crossover would do wonders there. I think in this case, these speakers just don't blend well with this system in this truck. They are quality speakers, and I may find a use for them in one of my other vehicles. I think I will be putting the OEMs back in until I can find something that works a little better. It could be a combination between the impedance and the high sensitivity of this speaker clashing with my factory radio.

Pros: Good build quality. Good materials. Perfect fit.

Cons: "S's", Cymbals and really high pitch sounds are distorted at even medium volume with THIS stereo... may not be so bad with other vehicles.

My only gripe is with Kicker the small connector is really a bear to get on without bending the tab.Settled for half on but it still worked . Anyway a great sound over the factory speakers

Replaced the dash speakers in my 2002 SAAB 9-3 with these. With 25 watts RMS, these speakers produce a clean, accurate sound. Highs are bright but not too harsh and mids have more tone and body than you would expect from a speaker this size. Volume is impressive and allows for significantly louder playback than the stock speakers were capable of...Fantastic little speakers!

Pros: perfect fit, loud, clear, clean accurate sound.

Cons: Butt connectors included in the kit are cheap, recommend using your own.

These speakers pack quite a punch! Much louder than stock and were a great fit in my 2017 Ram 1500. Definitely recommend swapping out the rest of the speakers in the truck though for a more richer sound experience but overall these were great!

Used these as my center speaker in a 2018 F-150 Supercrew w/ 7 speakers. These are sold in pairs so I basically have an extra speaker (Only 1 center Spkr.). I don't recall hearing the factory speaker before replacing, but I definitely hear it now. Installation was easy and painless. Just need to know that for my application I needed to solder the provided speaker connection wires since Ford hard-wires this speaker location. After this mod., the speaker will have the ability to be removed in the future if needed.

Pros: - Good price - Easy install - Definitely sound better than factory. Actually I didn't hear the factory unit prior to replacement.

Cons:

Upgraded stock speakers in my Ram 2500. The stock speakers were rated at 15 watts and about the size of refrigerator magnets. The original 6 speaker setup gives great bass, but is muddy when it comes to the higher end. Installing these new dash speakers really brought the sound up from the floor and brightens the overall spectrum. In fact, it does it too much. No fault of the speakers. Actually, these speakers are so good it now requires me to quickly replace the rest of the speakers so it balances out the sound. That is a good thing!

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Bought this on Crutchfield's recommendation to replace the factory speaker in the middle dash of my 2018 F150. The factory unit was not blown or anything, but was a little on the high side of the sound. With the two tweeters in the A pillar, the high frequencies were covered, but not much else. This little Kicker helped. It picks up the mids better, and has a nice clear sound. Materials are much better than factory. The included instructions were a help. I would recommend this speaker.

Pros: Nice price. Nice sound, and better quality.

Cons: None

Replaced OEM dash speakers in a 2015 Ram 1500. Sound great, but the factories were 8ohm and these are 4ohm so, unless you EQ them, they can be a bit harsh and in your face.

Pros: Quality construction. Great sound clarity.

Cons: Needed to EQ them to eliminate harshness due to 4ohm.

I replaced the front center dash speaker on my 2007 Nissan Titan with this Kicker speaker. The difference in sound quality is nothing short of amazing. Hard to believe the factory uses such junk (and I have the upgraded sound system "Rockford Fosgate"). This Kicker speaker added a full range of sound, especially on the high-tones. I also noticed the volume level was greatly increased. Don't hesitate on this one.. Attached are photos showing the junk factory vs the Kicker speaker..

Dat from Arlington, TX on 2/27/2018

2017 Toyota RAV4

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Great replacements over stock 2017 RAV4! BUT, they are a little too bright. That may have something to do with the Crutchfield 300Hz Bass Blocker that was suggested during checkout. May have to test these without the bass blockers to see if it will reduce the extreme high. After turning down the treble on the stock head unit, sound became a little muffled. Not sure what I'm doing wrong or these speakers aren't performing. Not blaming these until I try to remove the bass blockers. Otherwise, still a vast improvement over OEM 3.5"!

Pros: Great build quality. Clear vocals.

Cons: Highs are too bright. Foam cone surrounds, not rubber, where dash speakers will get lots of sun and heat from TX sun.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I'm sure many of you have seen my recent posts asking tons of questions about speakers and subs...and I appreciate all the help and information. I thought I'd give you all my initial impressions and feelings on the upgrades I've done so far. I installed Kicker CS 3.5" in dash, 6.5" 2 way in the doors, and 6x9 3 way in the rear doors. I was replacing the basic stock speakers (non alpine) in my 2010 Ram Sport and I have to say WOW!!! The stock speakers were unbelievably cheap crappy junk to put it mildly. I have heard the Alpine systems and they are much much better, however, for the price the dealers charge I'm not sure I'd go that way rather than just doing aftermarket but that's just me. so...here goes!!! The biggest difference I noticed right away was the 3.5" 2 way speakers in the dash. To be honest I wasn't even aware I had speakers in the dash prior to this (I thought they were just vents lol) because I'd NEVER heard them before. Well...I put in the Kicker 43CSC354 and wow they were in your face and alive! I will say I had to turn the treble and midrange down to about 4 on the stock MyGig deck as they were way too bright...but at this level they sound great, clean, crisp, detailed and the highs are amazing and alive!

Pros: great price, great build, great sound!

Cons: none!!!

2016 Ram 1500

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have been an audiophile most of my life, but I am very unfamiliar with "Kicker" products. The last time I really checked into speakers for vehicles is back when Jensen triaxials were the rage. Anyway, I bought a new deck for my Dodge Ram 1500 but still not satisfied with what I was getting out of my speakers, even with a 13 band EQ. after reading reviews on many sites about these in dash tweeters I thought I would give them a try. what do I have to loose at that price point a pair. I kept the radio playing as I was changing them out. I literally had to take the stock tweeters once I removed the screws holding them, and remove the stock tweeters from the dash and point them at me in order to hear anything noticible. When I plugged in these kickers, holy cow, what a difference. after securing them in the dash and putting the grills back on, I can STILL most definitely hear the difference. Matter of fact, I think they are over powering the in door stock 6x9s in there so now I am researching 6x9 speakers to go with these. pretty sure I will be going with Kickers again. I am VERY impressed with the performance of these so far. I could NEVER get enough highs out of my speakers, now I can, maybe even get just a bit too much highs, but that is what the EQ is all about. I had maxed it out in order to try and compensate for what the stock speakers were not delivering.

Pros: Great price, Easy install, sounds fantastic

Cons: none

These speakers fit perfectly into my 2014 Ram 1500. The high end on these speakers is tinny and doesn't go away when trying to compensate with the EQ.

Pros: Fit Price Loud

Unbelievable sound! Crips and clear! Installed in a 2017 Dodge Ram 1500, easy to install. Perfect fit. Stock speakers were 8ohm and these are 4ohm. Little more work From HU but take it easy with volume and you should be fine.

Well Made. Will Hold Up.

Alex from Staten Island, NY on 4/25/2017

2014 Toyota Camry

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

When one of the speakers I had in the dash blew, I decided to bite the bullet and get these to round out my system. I had a good experience with similar Kicker 6 x 9's from Crutchfield in the rear deck. Yes, they sounded a bit almost kazoo like on tge highs, but about a year later they burned in very nicely and sound good. I was expecting similar type sounds from these, but no! Much better highs right out of the box. The tweeters are PEI, but look metallic, so I am guessing it is a metal/plastic blend. It does sound more metallic, which is a good thing. Definitely handles the power better than the supposed 30 watt RMS/90 watt max speakers I had in there. I'm sticking with Crutchfield for speakers. I went through three sets of speakers from other sellers online. "New" really means brand new and never opened or used from Crutchfield. From these other websites its buyer beware. I do not see how there were complaints about these being tinny or hissy, they dont sound that way at all. It could be head unit/amp/eq issues, but with a 9 band graphic eq, these sound very good. These are well made. There might be other better sounding speakers out there, but they're going to either be lower RMS and fragile or way expensive with an RMS rating that requires even more power. I'll be deaf if I go beyond the 400 watts RMS I'm running now.

Pros: Very well made. Tweeter is metallic/PEI. Will handle the rated RMS and then some.

Cons: There are better sounding materials out there.

Best Affordable Upgrade for clean crisp highs

Perfect fit for 2015 Ram 1500! These speakers provide great crisp highs, and put out more volume than the stock dash speakers in the truck. Crutchfield provided all required adapters and very in depth instructions, making the install fast and easy. The speakers themselves are obviously high quality. The connections were solidly soldered, and the mounting tabs allow for use of stock hardware. Overall, very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend to everyone! I'll be purchasing another set for my wife's car!

Pros: Easy Install Clean Crisp Highs Manufacturer Quality is superb! Fast shipping & well packaged

Cons: None.

James from Colonial Heights, VA on 3/15/2017

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I installed these into my 2017 Challenger with the stock alpine system. There is a dramatic difference in the sound. I definitely hear way more of the higher tones than I heard with the stock speakers. I would buy these again in a heartbeat. There were very easy to install with the instructions and wiring adapters provided by Crutchfield. The only modification was with the wiring adapter, I had to bend the pins up a tad so it would connect, but it wasn't anything difficult. I am very happy I went with these. A very simple plug and play option.

Pros: Very clear and distinct highs.

Cons: none

I love these speakers! They provide crystal clear mids and highs from such a small speaker. I was a little skeptical because they were cheap, but these perform very nicely. I've never tried Kicker products before, but now I'm going to outfit my whole truck in Kicker. I'm very pleased with the value and performance.

Q
Do these speakers come with bare wires that connect to the speaker and I can splice/solder to my vehicle speakers?

Kicker includes two 11" lengths of speaker wire (tinned wire on one end and female quick slides on the other); and we also provide vehicle-specific harnesses (when available) with your Crutchfield speaker purchase to help simplify the installation.

They sell aftermarket wires for a plug and play installation or you can figure out which is pos and neg and just cut the plug off and splice wires. I usually just order the plug and play myself
[ JAMES  Mar 20, 2017 ]

You will have to cut and wire directly, look up what color is positive and negative, then go from there.
