As of late, one of the most buzzed about outdoor speakers is the KICKER KB6000 Full Range Indoor/Outdoor Speakers. And not because these are the top of the line speakers, like that of Definitive Technology AW6500’s or the Klipsch AW650’s, but because these are one of the highest rated speakers based on value. Often referred to as the best budget speaker, the KICKER KB6000’s can be purchased for under $100 plus free shipping! Now if you take a look at any other indoor outdoor speaker reviews on this site, you will not find any in this price range. That is because we tend to focus on the best of the best outdoor speakers and the likes of Klipsch, Bose and Polk. But these KICKER Kb6000 outdoor speakers really caught our eye (or ears?).
KICKER KB6000 Outdoor Speakers
KICKER’s “every place” speaker is just that – it was designed and built for maximum efficiency in producing a crisp, dynamic sound indoors or on your patio, pool deck, or even on your boat. These full-range indoor outdoor speakers are available in a black or white, solid weather-resistant enclosure that houses a 6.5” woofer and a 2×5” compression-loaded horn tweeters. Equipped to handle 300 watts of max power (both speakers), these marine speakers put out a big sound for such a small speaker. Consumers have been blown away by the bass response, comparing these to the likes of $400+ premium outdoor speakers. Audiophiles even agree that the quality of sound is worth every penny, if not more. Installation is simple and straight-forward and they can be mounted vertically or horizontally at nearly any angle for optimum listening pleasures. Stainless-steel mounting hardware is provided with the speakers.
If you are looking for a top of the line outdoor speaker with superb sound performance, then you should consider the Klipsch or Def Tech’s. However, if you are looking for a top rated speaker that provides quality sound at a great price then the KICKER KB6000 indoor outdoor speakers might be just for you.
