Our take on the Infinity Reference X REF-9602ix

by John Pollard
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.

Designed for more clarity
Do you want to hear the details you've been missing in your car's sound system? You'll enjoy exceptional clarity from Infinity's Reference X Series REF-9602ix 6"x9" speakers. Infinity's UniPivot design allows you to aim each textile dome tweeter toward your ears, so you enjoy excellent stereo imaging even if the speakers are mounted way down low in your doors. Each tweeter features a level control switch so you can boost the brightness to your taste.

REF-9602ix 6

Larger woofer for more bass
The REF-9602ix appeals to bassheads too, with tough polypropylene woofers and durable hi-roll rubber surrounds that deliver strong low-frequency performance. Each Plus One+ woofer sports a significantly larger cone than speakers of similar size, adding plenty of punch to the speaker's smooth and accurate highs.

Great for any power supply
You can power these speakers with up to 100 watts of RMS power — they'll work great with an external amplifier, but they're also sensitive enough to be a good match for a factory or aftermarket stereo. Plus, Infinity comes up with a safe way to get a little more power out of your system — these 3-ohm speakers combine with the speaker wire in your car so your car stereo sees actual 4-ohm impedance. Grilles are included along with Infinity logo badges that can be attached to your factory grilles.

Highlights:

  • 6"x9" 2-way speakers (pair)
  • Plus One+ polypropylene woofer cone with hi-roll rubber surround
  • 1" UniPivot edge-driven, textile dome tweeter
  • True Four Ohm Impedance technology: speaker's 3-ohm impedance combines with speaker wire impedance for a 4-ohm load
  • compatible with virtually all factory or aftermarket car stereos
  • power range: 5-100 watts RMS (300 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 46-21,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 94 dB
  • top-mount depth: 3-1/16"
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Features

Plus One+ Woofer Cones: Each speaker uses a cone significantly larger than other speakers of the same size. This is accomplished by using a unique basket design and hi-roll surround. The Plus One+ design offers greater bass output and increased efficiency.

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

Textile Dome Tweeters (UniPivot Design): Each speaker uses an edge-driven textile dome tweeter for smooth, accurate highs. The UniPivot design mounts the tweeter at an angle and pivots, so the tweeter can be pointed at the listeners, optimizing the stereo image for a more uniform response. The tweeter housing can be turned approximately 315 degrees.

Tweeter Level Control: A switch on the front of the tweeter allows you to boost the tweeter output to +3dB, useful if the speakers are mounted low in a door where high frequencies are easily absorbed.

True Four Ohm Impedance Technology: The speaker's 3-ohm impedance combined with the impedance of your speaker wire provides a true 4-ohm load to your connected head unit or amplifier.

Power Handling: Although Infinity rates the 9602ix speakers at 100 watts RMS (continuous average), they also recommend amplifiers with a power rating from 5 to 200 watts RMS.

Outstanding speakers

Written By James W, Chesapeake, VA on Tuesday, September 23, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Even though the site said these speakers would not fit, they went in just fine. The sound qualities of these speakers are night and day better than the so call "premium Alpine System that came with the car. Clarity and proper bass is what these speakers bought to my Dodge Charger. This was money well spent for sure. Also a special thanks to my product advisor from Crutchfield for all of his help. If you are looking for some proper 6x9 speakers don't hesitate to buy these.
Pros:
Solid build, huge magnet, great tweeter. Speaker just reeks high quality.
Cons:
Not really a con but, these speakers will fit in a 2014 Dodge Charger!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Pretty good speakers. I knew going in that they wouldn't fit the front doors of my 2013 Toyota 4runner without some tweaking. I made a pair of adapters from MDF and they fit fine. Because they're high in sensitivity and low in impedence, they worked fine with the stock head unit. Seem solidly built. Much better sound than the stock speakers.
Pros:
Good build quality, good sound. Much improved bass. Compatible with stock head units.
Cons:
None.

Awesome

Written By Dan, USA on Saturday, March 02, 2013
 
I used these to replace the front door speakers in my 2007 Dodge Ram. Powered by a Rockford P1000x5D these speakers sound AMAZING! Crisp highs and hard hitting, teeth vibrating lows! I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for great all around sound!
Pros:
Crisp highs, clean bass
Cons:
None

The Best

Written By EagleWindSpirit, Dallas, TX on Saturday, January 12, 2013
 
Had these installed in my 2012 Toyota 4runner SR5 in the front doors. They sound incredible with the factory stereo and don't see a need to change my stereo head unit. The bass vibrates the door and rear view mirrors, and that's without an amplifier, just the stock radio. I used the factory speaker frames (after cutting the guts out) to mount these. Fit perfect without modifying the door panel grills.
Pros:
Awesome efficiency as even compared to factory speakers plus much more clear mids and highs and an actual boost to the bass believe it or not. The installer was even shocked.
Cons:
None, not sure why anyone would give this product bad reviews. Take my word on it, I am a musician and audio electronics expert.
