New Kicker LED Coaxials - New Product Write Up

Guys,
I bought two pairs of these to update my 190 cockpit and they are amazing.
http://www.kicker.com/KM_Coaxials_0


Quality marine construction and easy to install with all the wire, fastners, multi color grills, and other stuff. I got a little cheap and didn't order the remote controlled LED color changer and kind of kicking myself for not. It is always an option down the road if you want to upgrade. Basically if you do a none remote install you have to pick one color when wiring(red for me). I will get some night shots in a couple of days. I have Kicker all 3 of my boats and they have performed flawlessly for years. I also have seen the punishment their marine products can take in the off-road world of mud, extreme heat, and dust. Good, tought stuff. Also, they have great customer service if you ever have an issue.
Eric

Not only do they now offer the RBG LED option, the new Kicker KM654LCW comes with both a white and charcoal grill option. You can use which ever one fits the scheme of your boat. This is done by taking the integrated tweeter out of the grill and putting it in a spider thats bridged across the mid-bass woofer.

Even further, this is not last year's KM6200 with LEDs and a new look, but rather a complete rework of the whole speaker. Tweaks to the mid-bass, tweeter and cross-over.

Kicker has also released an 8" version, the KM8LCW. The OD and cut-out are just slightly larger then the JL 7.7. The mid-bass from this speaker is very impressive. And man, will they handle the power, 200W rms all day long.

EDIT: Just clarify the bold statement above. Moving the tweeter from the grill and mounting in a bridged spider frame, was done as part of the speaker upgrade by Kicker. Its not anything the consumer needs to do. The way I worded it, read as if it was soemthing the end consumer needed to do. Just choose which grill, set it on the speaker and mount the speaker in place. No modifying necessary.

The KM6200 is a solid performing speaker, just know its a different speaker from the KM6000 and KM6130, although it looks just like the later. Built from the ground up as a marine speaker with enclosed magnet, composite continuous cone mid-bass and rubber surround. UV in all the materials and stainless steel hardware. The KM6200 has a .75" dome tweeter, which sets it apart from the others .5" tweeter.

I have two pairs of the older model. 11KM6LW. 6" with white grills and blue LEDs. They look and sound great. Upgraded from some Clarion coaxials and it made a big difference in sound and aesthetics.
