Product Review: Kicker CSC Series Entry Level and KSC Series Mid Level

Ever since Kicker started in a garage in 1973, the brand has been known for making some of the best car speakers on the market. The engineers at Kicker work hard to stay at the forefront of technology, and their work shines through in every product they make.

The brand offers speakers at multiple different levels and in multiple different price ranges. While some audiophiles like the top shelf QSS Series Q Class, most people are satisfied with either the entry-level CSC Series or mid-level KSC Series. Component systems from Kicker are some of the best ways to upgrade your car speakers without breaking the bank.

Kicker Features and Specs

At every product level, Kicker speakers are durable and reliable for a reasonable price. The sound difference will be noticeable when compared to any standard car speakers from the manufacturer, so it’s definitely worth upgrading if you enjoy great sound quality.

When to Buy Kicker Component Speakers

Since the brand offers such a wide product line, there’s really no bad scenario for upgrading to Kicker speakers. The only big question is exactly what you should get. In the choice between the CSC Series and the KSC series, it really boils down to your budget and your standards. If you want something very affordable that will still sound better than your factory speakers, we recommend the CSC series.

If you’re willing to pay just a little bit more for even greater power, frequency range, and clarity, the KSC is well worth your money, especially if you are also using an amplifier. Other than that, the only things you need to do are make sure the speaker sizes you select will fit in your car and the equipment will function with your existing head unit and amplifier.

Where to Buy Kicker Component Speakers

As with any other automotive sound system upgrades, we recommend you shop locally with an authorized vendor so you can receive all of the following:
• Genuine products at great prices
• Professional installations from the same people who sell the equipment
• Full access to the manufacturer warranty
