Get the lighting look you want

You can access twenty color options as well as 19 dynamic modes using the optional . The KMLC gives you multi-function control of the LED lighting by managing color and dynamic mode functions, including adjustable brightness, fade, speed/strobe, and auto save.

Rugged and versatile

These speakers are tough enough for marine duty, but they're gentle on your ears. The durable poly woofers and balanced dome titanium tweeters cut through wind, waves, and engine roar to deliver great sound without annoying harshness. Whether you're mounting them in a bulkhead, or installing them in a set of Kicker's , these Kickers will make your day on the water just a little bit better than it was already.

Made for boating

Designed for life on the water, these powerful 4-ohm speakers feature sealed motors, rubber cone surrounds, and locking terminal covers to keep spray away from the internal componentry. They'll also stand up to harsh sunlight, thanks to special UV treatments on the cones, surrounds, baskets, and grilles. Whether you're on fresh water or salt, these speakers will give you years of outstanding performance.

Great speakers





Pros: Awesome sound great leds

Cons: None


Great sound love the leds, very happy


Cons: None


Great sound, easy installation. Be sure to get the remote for the LEDs.




I replaced my original speakers with these and what a difference! These deliver an eminence amount of sound for the size of speaker. Providing great bass while keeping the highs tight and clean. I'm pleased with the added leds, they add a nice look to the boat for evening cruising.

Pros: Easy to install, impressive bass from such a small speaker, the leds add a nice look for evening cruising.



Hands-on research

Product Research


Marine-Ready: The Kicker KM series marine coaxial speakers are engineered to meet or exceed industry standards for environmental humidity and corrosion. The speakers feature sealed motors, cones, and locking wire terminal covers.

LEDs: There are multi colored LEDs behind the tweeter casing, to create a glow on the woofer cone. Depending on what combination of the three LED wires is connected, they can light red, green, blue, lime green, magenta, aquamarine, or blue-white. A wireless remote (item number , sold separately) is also available to control the backlighting. A 12 volt power supply is needed to turn the LEDs on.

Size: The 43KM654LCWs fit into standard 6-1/2 and 6-3/4 openings (standard car speaker sizes). The frame is bigger than a typical 6-1/2 and the screw hole pattern matches 6-3/4 speakers.

Grilles: Two pair of grilles are included; choose charcoal or white.

Terminal Cover: The speakers feature splash and spray resistant, locking terminal covers. These covers have water-resistant gaskets to prevent terminal corrosion and electrical shorting.

Stainless Steel Hardware: The provided mounting hardware is 316L grade stainless steel.

That small gauge wire will be fine. I have that set up on my boat. [ Calvin Oct 14, 2017 ]
Yes that is correct [ Rebekka Aug 05, 2017 ]
When you got the remote it should have came with a modular or some stuff the 4 wires goes into. The remote talks to that modular and tells the modular what wires to make connects to make whatever color you requested. [ CHRIS Aug 05, 2017 ]
No u sure don't. The black wire is 12v and 3 other colors r ground. Connect the other colors one at a time to ground until u find the right combo. the website i believe has the color scheme to show what wires to hook up for what color u want. [ CHRIS Mar 29, 2017 ]
