Our take on the Blaupunkt Blue Magic QL 690

by Dave Delamere
Blaupunkt

Why replace your car's original speakers?

The speakers that originally came in your car were made from inexpensive materials, designed to create acceptable sound at the lowest possible cost to the manufacturer. If you love music, you deserve better. Name-brand aftermarket speakers deliver fuller, richer sound with considerably more detail and nuance, and they're capable of playing louder and cleaner than factory speakers. Connect new speakers to your factory radio and you'll get the best possible sound from your dealer-equipped system. Pair them up with a new car stereo for a level of enjoyment that can rival a high-fidelity home audio experience.

More science than magic

Nothing up the sleeve here! Blaupunkt's Blue Magic QL 690 6"x9" speakers offer high-end construction and materials at an affordable price. Each speaker features a rigid injected polypropylene (IPP) woofer that works with its rubber surround to produce accurate lows. Combine that with its Mylar midrange, a sensitive PEI dome tweeter, and a piezo super tweeter for your highs, and you'll get faithful reproduction of all your music.

Ample power handling, tough design, and a low profile make these Blaupunkts a great choice for replacing your stock speakers. Their included grilles also enable you to use them in a custom installation. You can power these efficient speakers with a factory radio, an aftermarket car stereo, or an amplifier.

Great Sounding Speakers

Written By Steve, Anoka, MN on Monday, April 21, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
After my OEM speakers died I replaced them with these up front, and the Blaupunkt Blue Magic TL 160 in the rear doors. They sound great. I'm very happy with them, and with the great service and tech support from Crutchfield. These guys are awesome with online support!!!!

I did also replace my OEM radio/CD player with Kenwood KDC-358U CD Receiver. So far so good. Love the entire system setup. It has great bass which I love!!
Pros:
Great replacement for OEM system
Cons:
Not all four mounting holes lined up.
