Kicker Marine HLCD Tower Component System Offers Ultimate Boating Musical Experience


Kicker Marine AudioSTILLWATER, USA – Boaters and wake-sports enthusiasts are sure to enjoy KICKER’s KM6500.2 HLCD Tower Component System, the world’s first horn-loaded, compression-driver component system that delivers a personal concert to the entire watercraft and beyond.

Providing maximum sound quality, the KM6500.2 consists of two 6 ½-inch, high-efficiency midrange speakers featuring lightweight, dual neomagnet technology and extreme heat-sinking, cast-aluminum baskets.

Kicker KM6500.2The system also includes a pair of horn-loaded, two-inch compression drivers with titanium diaphragms and phase plugs for ultimate clarity and volume. The advanced tractrix horns (60-degree-vertical-by-90-degree horizontal) deliver tunes out to the skier, wakeboarder or wakesurfer. Integrated crossovers for the perfect musical blend complete the ultimate marine system.

The KICKER tower speakers are engineered with the highest design standards and are a breeze to install, fitting perfecting into standard 6 ½-inch speaker cans. The horns also fit the same cans with identical hole diameters and bolt patterns.

UV treatments on the midranges’ injection-molded cones, Santoprene® surrounds, baskets and grilles help the tower system tolerate freshwater or saltwater environments. These speakers endure most any weather conditions with splash- and spray-resisting, sealed midrange motors and cones.

Water-proof, bolt-thru grilles offer added speaker protection, and all hardware is made from rustproof, 316L stainless steel. KICKER Marine Components meet or exceed industry standards for environmental humidity and corrosion* and for material degradation due to UV exposure.**

Additionally, this year authorized dealers carry KICKER KM-Series Empty Tower Enclosures, the perfect host for housing HLCD Tower Components or any KICKER 6 ½-inch speakers.
