Price of Kicker Mopar upgrade speakers rising

When I bought my 6.5 inch "77Kick10" upgrade speakers about a year ago, they were $62 per pair on Amazon with free shipping for Prime members. I just noticed now that the same speakers are $110 per pair. I see they are available on eBay for around $90 per pair with free shipping from several vendors - still a big price increase over last year's prices.

I think that so many Wrangler owners bought the the 77Kick10 Mopar upgrade speakers that the wholesalers have raised their prices to take advantage of the situation.

That's an increase just in the last few months. I was looking a few months ago and they were around $70 per pair.

I got some through Quadratec in February for $74/pair. A jump over 100 bucks would certainly reduce the "plug and play" appeal. It's worth noting, though, that Qtec still has them listed for $80, and that's before a forum discount/quote...

From my web searches, $80 is a good price with free shipping. With the forum discount, they are probably still at about what you paid ($74).

I bet Quadratec's prices on these will jump up when they run out of current stock. For anyone considering getting some 77Kick10's, now might be a good time to grab one or two sets. First, send a private message to Rick at Quadratec with your first & last name, address, zip, year of your Jeep and the part name and number(s) you would like to order.
