Worthy of the Excelon name

Kenwood doesn't take the Excelon name lightly. It's their standard for quality sound and excellent performance, and this Kenwood Excelon XR-1603HR component speaker set surpasses expectations. Every element in this system has been selected and crafted to uplift the audio signal from a high-performance amplifier and receiver, particularly when you're playing high-resolution audio files. Working in unison, these premium parts, enhanced by the latest speaker technology, provide a more life-like listening experience, unencumbered by distortion.

Substantial woofer

The 6-1/2" woven glass-fiber woofer cone delivers the fullness and punch you don't hear with most factory speakers, and its specially designed surround ensures consistent performance. An aluminum die-cast basket minimizes unwanted vibration, allowing the woofer to cleanly provide all the detail and impact you expect. Kenwood uses a special-design voice coil to give you a signature sound that's driving and powerful.

Soft dome tweeter

Kenwood's sleek, surface-mount tweeter pod gives this system an elegant look that matches its high-resolution sound. The 1" soft dome tweeter itself brings warmth and incredible detail to your music that honors an artist's intention song to song. If you are into high-res music, these tweeters reproduce frequencies up to 48,000 Hz, delivering the extended detail and strong imaging of your high-res FLAC or DSD files. Inline crossovers ensure accuracy without any harshness.

Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

Grilles are not included; the factory grilles should be suitable for most applications.
