Overview

Our take on the Focal Polyglass 690 CVX

Focal's Polyglass CVX speakers use precision craftmanship and advanced materials to make a strong sonic impression. These sturdy 2-way speakers bring superb sound quality to the factory speaker locations in your vehicle.

Focal's Polyglass CVX speakers use precision craftmanship and advanced materials to make a strong sonic impression. These sturdy 2-way speakers bring superb sound quality to the factory speaker locations in your vehicle.

The 690 CVX 6"x9" speakers feature a Polyglass cone that's created by depositing a layer of hollow glass microbeads over a layer of cellulose pulp. This unique material combines the warm sound of cellulose with the incredible strength of glass, for a cone that responds rapidly with extremely low resonance. A butyl rubber surround helps control cone movement and promotes high power handling. The ABS plastic basket provides a strong, non-resonant housing for accurate, uncolored sound.

Focal designed the aluminum inverted dome tweeter to disperse high frequencies evenly for a big, open soundstage. You can rotate the tweeter to improve definition in your listening positions. The built-in 2-way crossover ensures a smooth transition from lows to highs, so vocals and instruments sound natural. Grilles are included.

Priced per pair

Clean, solid bass, crisp accurate highs...with smooth transition in the midrange. Focal speakers will change your opinion of auto audio quality. These are a value if you are in the market for a high end 6X9 replacement on a budget. I'm looking for excuses to drive again

Can I say hello to bliss!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Wow was I surprised at the musical bliss ive just heard. So clean and crisp it even floored my installer how crisp it sounded. All he could do was shake his head at it. Told me to ask for him when I install my subs because he had to hear the combo together. In other words from him and me these speakers freakin rock and are the best investment ive made to my new install. Thanks Crutchfield!!

Pros: Clean and flawless sound

Cons: Bad that they discontinued these I think because y'all don't sell them anymore but I guess that means something new is in store. All in all nothing bad to say.

Aural Ecstasy

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

All I can say is wow! I've used Focal nearfield monitors in the recording studio and always liked their neutrality. When my son wanted a new system for his car, I immediately went to Crutchfiled.com (as I have for the past 30 years) and saw these and they were on sale (we had a budget). The sound that comes out of these things is classic Focal. Well defined bass, great mids and smooth highs. Highly recommended!

Pros: Sound

Cons: None

Astonishing Sound.............:)

Features

Polyglass Cone: The woofer cone has a cellulose pulp base and is coated with a uniform deposit of hollow glass microballs. The addition of the Polyglass layer significantly increases the cone's rigidity without adding much weight. This combination takes advantage of the accuracy and neutrality of the hard outer surface, but maintains the superior damping characteristics of the cellulose pulp.

Surround: 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 basket made of 20% fiberglass filled ABS.

Voice Coil: The voice coil is wound around a 1-1/4" 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 rotates on its post, so it can be pointed toward the listener.

Crossover: The 12 dB/octave crossovers built onto the back of the speaker use audiophile grade polypropylene capacitors and air core inductors to ensure high definition and a dynamic sound quality.

Mounting: The speaker can be top or bottom mounted. When bottom mounting the included mounting ring should be used.
