Dream speakers

Perfect sound. Discreet style. Premium construction. These are the standards that define Focal – and the reasons why listening to Focal speakers is an absolute pleasure. The Access line offers a marriage of performance and affordability, allowing you to experience the best in sound with a guilt-free conscience.

The sum of its parts

With the first song, Focal's Access Series 690AC 6"x9" coaxial speakers will make your old factory models fade into a distant memory. High-quality components in the built-in crossover ensure a seamless distribution of frequencies to the woofer and tweeter, for a totally natural sound. The DFS (dual fiberglass structure) woofer cone delivers precise mid-bass and midrange reproduction while offeringfull, articulated bass. Coupled with a butyl rubber surround, the cone's all-weather durability ensures performance even in the hottest, most humid environments without distortion or warping.

Innovation at work

Every Access coaxial speaker features inverted dome tweeter technology, a hallmark Focal innovation. Unlike a traditional raised dome tweeter, the aluminum inverted dome shape evenly disperses high frequencies, creating a very wide soundstage with fine resolution and exciting dynamics. Rotate the tweeters toward your listening position to further enhance the stereo imaging.



    • 2-way 6" x 9" speakers (pair)
    • dual fiberglass structure woofer cone with butyl rubber surround
    • rotating aluminum inverted-dome tweeter
    • non-resonant ABS/fiberglass basket
    • wire mesh grilles included
    • 2-75 watts RMS power range (150 watts peak)
    • frequency response: 50-20,000 Hz
    • sensitivity: 88.09 dB
    • impedance: 4 ohms
    • top-mount depth: 3-1/4"

    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.

    Product Research


    Cone Material: The Dual Fiberglass Structure Membrane (DFS) is a light, rigid, woven glass fiber woofer cone. The butyl rubber surround is resistant to ultraviolet rays, temperature extremes, and humidity to add to the speaker's reliability and longevity.

    Basket: The woofer features a fiberglass reinforced ABS basket.

    Voice Coil: The voice coil is wound around a 1-3/16" diameter low-mass Kapton former, ensuring no coil deformation.

    Inverted Dome Tweeter: The tweeter is an inverted aluminum dome, producing a broad sound stage. The tweeter is angled and rotates on its post, so it can be pointed toward the listener.

    Mounting: The included mounting ring is used when bottom mounting the speakers; it isn't needed when top mounting and cannot be used as a lift ring.

    Not Good For Hip-Hop or current R&B music

    Written By ILikeMyMusicLoud, 20001 on Monday, September 22, 2014

    It's really hard buying speakers online. What I think sounds good is probably not going to be the same for the next person. I was told by an Audio Installation company, this speaker and the Focal 165 KRC, and two Focal FD 2.350's would be the perfect setup for the type of music I want to listen to on my Harley Davidson Street Glide. He was totally wrong. This setup is great for any music not requiring bas (Straight Ahead Jazz, Country, some Rock & Roll, Classical, old school R&B). An Alpine setup on the same bike that was less than half the cost of the Focal setup blew it away in volume, quality of sound (unless you prefer bright highs), and Bass. The Amp he was using was a JL Audio XD600/6. I was blown away. These speakers distort at higher volumes. This setup was tuned by a professional authorized Focal Retail shop.

    Pros: They're OK for some genre's of music

    Cons: Way over priced for the quality. Distort with songs that have Bass. Price does not mean quality

    Metalheads/dubsteppers would enjoy these!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    If you're looking for a complete sound stage and need rear fill, these Focals will fit in nicely! My preferred stage includes subwoofers, these mid-rage speakers, and the Focal 5 1/4" high range up front.

    I listen to metal and dubstep - and the Focal Access line is perfect! The sound quality is excellent at the highest volumes! You'll hear the bass guitar and rhythm guitars, as well as backup vocals with such clarity that listening to your old stand-by songs...well, you'll appreciate the songs that much more!!

    Pros: Clarity at high volumes Clarity of the background instruments/vocals

    Cons: None!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I got these about a month ago.i got them running simply off a kenwood kdc 597.i have a 97 mercury grand marquis. I have the focal 570ACs in the front doors and these in the rear deck. These speakers get loud. They have great highs. They arent really bright like people say about some other focal speakers. The mids are good too. The lows are pretty good but im about to get some subs for the lows. I need more bass. But overall these speakers are doing the job i love loud music and i dont regret the purchase. My car sounds much better !

    Get everything you’ll need to enjoy your new Focal 690AC
