Our take on the Infinity Kappa 692.5i

by Todd Cabell
Infinity

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.

The Infinity Kappa 692.5i 6"x9" speakers set an exceptional standard for high-fidelity sound. An oversized, Plus One Ceramic Metal Matrix Diaphragm (C.M.M.D.) woofer cone features a lightweight aluminum cone bonded to layers of ceramic — forming a highly durable driver that delivers accurate performance with minimal distortion.

The cast-polymer basket and hi-roll rubber surround combine to virtually eliminate unwanted resonances from "coloring" low-frequency output. You may direct the flow of high frequencies from the Unipivot C.M.M.D. tweeter to achieve optimum stereo imaging. Computer-optimized crossovers (18 dB/octave, 3,500 Hz), customized to match the 692.5i, prevent the drivers from playing notes outside their ranges.

Features

Ceramic Metal Matrix Diaphragm (C.M.M.D.): Infinity's C.M.M.D. technology delivers accurate performance with dramatically reduced distortion for incredibly lifelike sound. Additionally, the C.M.M.D. drivers can withstand extreme temperatures, moisture, humidity and sunlight.

C.M.M.D. Plus One Woofer Cones: These speakers use cones approximately 30% larger than other speakers of the same size. This is accomplished by using a new basket design and hi-roll surround. The Plus One design offers greater bass output and a significant increase in efficiency. In addition, the C.M.M.D. cones virtually eliminate coloration due to cone flexing, resulting in less distortion and superior accuracy.

Surrounds: The hi-roll rubber surrounds allow the woofers a greater range of movement, resulting in longer X-max and more bass output.

UniPivot C.M.M.D. Dome Tweeters: Each speaker has a 1" C.M.M.D. dome tweeter that offers superior stiffness and damping compared to traditional metal domes. The UniPivot tweeter is angled (non-adjustable) and may be turned up to 355 degrees for optimum imaging and in-car frequency response. It is not made to turn 360 degrees. If the tweeter is turned 360 degrees or more, it will be damaged.

2-Way Crossovers: These speakers include computer-optimized, voice-matched crossovers. Each crossover features an 18dB/octave, 3.5kHz high-pass network for the tweeter and an 18dB/octave, 3.5kHz low-pass network for the woofer.

Crossover Connections: Each crossover has an 11" input lead terminated with bare wire and two 18" output leads, one for the woofer and one for the tweeter, terminated with female quick-slides. The positive woofer lead has a 0.205" female quick-slide and the negative woofer lead has a 0.110" female quick-slide. The positive tweeter lead has a 0.250" female quick-slide and the negative tweeter lead has a 0.187" female quick-slide. These quick-slides connect directly to the woofer and tweeter terminals on each speaker.

Crossover Dimensions: L=3.458", W=1.734", H=1.087"

SPEECHLESS...Wow

Written By Ty, Kansas City, MO on Wednesday, April 06, 2005
 
Wow. These Speakers are AMAZING. I Bought them on sale at Crutchfield for $129 but would have defenatly paid the full $199. They are that Great. I have them paired with a 6 1/2" component infiniti ref. up front and they are the perfect couple. The acoustics are amazing. The Bass is great but could use some more power so the full potential is reached. I have no amp right now but i am planning on one soon. I highly recommend these to anyone who wants a KICK a** soundsystem. Makes any song sound like its brand new and fresh. Straight up amazing.

THEY SOUND GREAT!!

Written By JMR, TUCSON, AZ on Sunday, March 27, 2005
 
THESE ARE GREAT SPEAKERS. I HAVEN'T COMPLETELY BROKEN THEM IN YET, BUT THEY STILL SOUND GREAT. THE REQUIRE A LITTLE POWER, BUT SOUND GREAT. THEY REALLY BRING OUT THE QUALITY OF THE RECORDING. YOU CAN ACTUALLY DISTINGUISH THE DIFFERENCE IN QUALITY OF THE RECORDING AND STUDIO!!! SLIGHTLY ON THE BRIGHT SIDE (THE TWEETS) BUT NOT TOO BAD. IT'S FAIRLY EASY TO GET USED TO. THE MAGNETS ON THESE ARE HUGE!!! THEY PRODUCE A LOT OF BASS IF YOU FEED THEM ENOUGH POWER, 50 WATTS RMS SHOULD DO. UNLESS YOUR PUTTING THEM IN A SEALED ENCLOSURE (THEN THEY COULD USE A LITTLE MORE I THINK). THEY ARE A GREAT SPEAKER FROM A GREAT COMPANY.
