The top car audio brands for amplifiers and speakers during the first half of 2015 were Alpine and Kicker, according to the NPD Group, as ranked in unit sales to consumers.

You can see in the charts below that Kicker grabbed the top slot in speaker sales this year from Pioneer, which dropped to the number two slot followed by Kenwood in the number three slot.

The top three players in amplifiers, on the other hand, have remained steady, topped by Alpine followed by Kicker and Kenwood.

The last time we looked at 12 volt amplifier and speaker NPD results, we did so by dollar sales versus the above ranking in unit sales. However, the results late last year were similar, with Alpine at the top in amplifiers and Kicker at the top in speakers.
