DS-Series Coax Speakers
CIMP™ (Curvilinear Injection-Molded Polypropylene
Woofer Cones) is a high performance composite, which
remains rigid, minimizes cone flex and lowers harmonic
distortion. The CIMP™ consists of a one-piece,
injection-molded polypropylene material that moves as a
piston, exhibiting power and control.
PEN™ Dome Tweeter with Neodymium Magnet
provides a smooth high frequency response with quick, detailed
and spatially-correct imaging. PEN is an acronym for the
space age material “biaxially oriented polypropylene
naphthalate film”--your parents’ tax dollars probably paid for its
development, you might as well enjoy it.
New Enhanced BAM (Basket and Motor) Assembly
utilizes a high strength steel basket, features a low-profile open
design, and provides a solid foundation for the
precision-aligned motor assembly.
High-Power Tinsel Lead Wires eliminate broken leads and
power loss, due to the common use of “insufficient-gauge” lead
wires.
Optimized Polyfoam Ribbed Surround Radius allows
extended cone excursion for additional bass output and higher
SPL, and couples the suspension into a conjoined
linear-motion body.

Features
Ferro-Fluid™ cooled tweeter voice-coil extends the high
frequency transducer’s life span.
Kicker Marine Ready models come with water resistant
mounting hardware. This enables the DS60 and DS693 to
replace most stock boat speakers without rusting your ship.
High-Temp Polyimide Film Voice Coil Former
improves sonic and conductive properties, and prevents
thermal-electrical meltdown.
Flexible Mounting of the DS40, which utilizes breakaway
tabs, the DS60, which has a multiple mounting pattern on the
frame allowing the DS60 to fit small and large 6 inch (15.2 cm)
openings, and the DS68, which fits factory 5” x 7” (12.7 cm x
17.8 cm) and 6” x 8” (15.2 cm x 20.3 cm) locations,enable the
DS-Series Coax Speakers to accommodate most installations.

Installation
Installation
Your Kicker DS-Series drivers are specifically designed for mounting in free-air applications. The speakers do not require a sealed
enclosure for optimum performance. It is important to isolate the sound coming off the front of the driver from the sound radiating from
the back of the driver. This isolation is usually accomplished by using the correct size driver in a factory speaker location.
Mounting
Use caution when mounting speakers through the rear deck or package tray of a vehicle. Please be aware of wiring harnesses,
trunk springs, hinges, and folding seat mechanisms that may interfere with the operation of the car or speaker system. When running
the speaker wires, be careful not to damage them with seat bolts or door screws.

Installation
Installation
If custom door mounting locations for the DS-Series Coax Speakers are desired, be careful to avoid interference from the window
and door lock mechanisms. The first step is to find a location on the door panel that will accept the dimensions of the speaker. Then
remove the door panel from the door, and check for operational clearance of the window. Cycle the window all the way down and up.
If metal must be cut to mount the speakers, avoid structural metal and braces. An optional reinforcing panel (thin piece of wood or
Medium Density Fiberboard) may be necessary if the door panel cannot support the weight of the speaker. Mount the speaker to the
door panel and door body as outlined in Figure 1.
If the factory door speaker wiring is not available, it will be necessary to run the supplied wire through the door jamb. The speaker
wire should be kept away from sharp edges and avoid the possibility of getting pinched by the door. An existing grommet in the door
jamb is the ideal place to run the speaker wire. If the factory hole and grommet do not exist or are inaccessible, you must drill a hole
to run the speaker wire through the door jam. Be careful not to drill into other wiring or existing door mechanisms. Any time a wire is
run through a hole, it is necessary to insert a rubber or plastic grommet to protect the wire from damage as outlined in Figure 2.

Wiring Options
Wiring
Hooking up the supplied wires to your Kicker DS-Series Coax Speakers is easy. The end of each wire is terminated with a large
and a small connector. The larger connector is crimped to the gray wire and connects to the larger positive terminal of the speaker.
The smaller connector is crimped to the black wire and connects to the smaller negative terminal of the speaker. The other end of
these wires connect to your source unit or amplifier in a similar manner. The gray wire connects to the positive output of the amplifier
or source unit. The black wire connects to the negative output of the amplifier or source unit. These connections can be made with
the crimp-down style connectors, or with solder and heat shrink or electrical tape to prevent electrical shorting of the speakers.
Note: To get the best performance from your Kicker DS-Series Coax Speakers, we recommend using genuine Kicker Accessories
and Wiring.

Wiring Options
Wiring two DS-Series Coax Speakers to a single channel
Modern high performance coaxial speakers have a lower DC Resistance than what used to be available. The Kicker DS-Series
Coax Speakers are rated at four ohms and work with any source unit or amplifier designed to operate at a four ohm load. If you want
to use two DS-Series Coax Speakers on each channel of your source unit or amplifier wire the speakers in series, as shown below.
This will improve the sound quality, lower the total harmonic distortion and lessen the thermal load at the source unit or amplifier. This
may prevent an amplifier from shutting down, due to over-current protection circuitry.

WARNING:
KICKER drivers are capable of producing sound levels
that can permanently damage your hearing! Turning up a
system to a level that has audible distortion is more
damaging to your ears than listening to an undistorted
system at the same volume level. The threshold of pain
is always an indicator that the sound level is too loud and
may permanently damage your hearing.
Please use common sense when controlling volume!
