Our take on the Kenwood KFC-1695PS

by Alexander Hrabe
Kenwood

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.


6.5" 3-way speakers

The performers

Kenwood's Performance Series speakers employ a multi-driver design to give you articulate lows, clean vocals, and startling highs. Kenwood has incorporated the latest technology into these speakers, so you'll get the biggest sonic bang for your buck.

A whole new speaker

The KFC-1695PS 6-1/2" 3-way speakers feature a water-resistant paper cone with a new radial rib pattern, which increases speaker strength and delivers more responsive bass. The addition of a rubber surround ensures a new level of overall durability, so you'll be enjoying that fresh-from-the-box sound for years.

All the musical details are handled by the 1-3/16" tweeter and 1/2" supertweeter. Kenwood engineered a smoother listening experience with the Acoustic Sound Harmonizer, which uses slots on the mount which houses the tweeter and supertweeter to improve the progression into the higher frequencies. Grilles are included for custom installations.

Mounting: The KFC-1695PS will fit in in standard three-hole and four-hole 6-1/2" applications. They can also be mounted in 6-3/4" applications, but because the extra screw holes create an air leak in the larger opening, speaker baffles must be used.

I bought two pairs of these speakers on sale to replace the crummy ones (OE) on my 2008 Chevy Silverado, both in the front doors and the rear passenger doors of my crew cab. Installation was a breeze with the included brackets and connectors! They sound great - they're Kenwoods, for goodness sake! The only problem is, now I need to replace the crummy OE stereo to really drive these bad boys!
Pros:
Easy to install, perfect fit in existins Silverado cut-outs, price, sound
Cons:
None - nada - nothing

My BMW needed to sound just as beautiful as she looks. I searched for days to find the perfect speakers to really make my car great. Once I found these, I knew that I wouldn't be let down. The speakers are phenomenal! They are so crisp, extremely easy to install, and the price was the cherry on top. After a day of installing and checking, finally the final sound test was at hand. Bohemian Rhapsody was obviously the first song I would play, and let me tell you, with this speakers it sounded like they were right there. If you're looking for great affordable speakers, you just found them.
Pros:
Price. Installation. Sound quality.
Cons:

Satisfied Customer

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I recently swapped vehicles with my wife and she got our 2012 Kia Optima and I got her 2003 Blazer :-( I really like the stock system in that car and the built in Bluetooth. I'm not in a position to take on another car payment so I figured I could at least upgrade the sound system in the Blazer. I ordered these speakers for front doors and a media player with Bluetooth capability. Today I installed the speakers but I have not gotten around to changing out the stock radio yet.

As soon as I got them installed and powered on the radio, I was blown away. These are so much better than the stock speakers. Very crisp highs and very defined bass. I didn't realize just how bad the stock speakers were. I think they were a great value for the price. This was my first experience installing car speakers and I could not be happier with the instructions and Master Sheets provided. I am somewhat handy and have decent tools. For this application I was required to drill out the rivets from the stock speaker brackets but otherwise it seemed very straightforward. I took about 40 minutes to install the 1st speaker and about 20 for the 2nd.

I can't wait to install my new Stereo later this week and see if there is a further improvement in the sound. I will definitely be replacing the rear door speakers in the near future.
Pros:
Great Clarity Crisp Highs Defined Bass Easy to Install Excellent Instructions from Crutchfield

Great Sound

Written By QualityNotVolume, Houston, TX on Monday, April 21, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Sounds great in the back doors teamed with Kenwood Excelon KDC-X597 and another pair of Kenwood 6x9 4 ways in the front doors of a Dodge Quad Cab. You will have to remove door panels and using the pattern cut with a skill saw, drill a couple holes and use longer screws...but it is fairly easy, just take your time.
Pros:
Great quality sound
Cons:
none

2 questions already asked

Will these speakers improve my factory radios sound without any amplifier? 2014 Silverado factory sound system is poor at best, but it is a company vehicle so I dont want to spend a ton to improve. [ Mark  Sep 05, 2014 ]
3 answers
  • Hi Mark, I bought the speakers for my husband, so I asked him your question. He said, " Yes, they will improve the factory sound system especially at high volumes, but don't expect Bose." I think he is referring to the fact I did not pay for a Bose system. So there you go. Good Luck. [ Miriam   Sep 09, 2014 ]
  • Sorry, I replaced all my speakers when I purchased the vehicle. I don't know what factory speakers sounded like cause some were blown. I listen mostly to talk which is good enough. Music sounds ok, but you can't crank. [ Kevin   Sep 08, 2014 ]
  • No speaker will substantially improve your sound quality without an amplifier, the amplifier is what improves the sound quality. New speakers may sound a bit better but not much of a noticeable difference. I would invest In a decent amp and set of speakers also if your looking for great sound quality than get a 4 channel amp for the 4 interior door speakers and a2 channel amp for 2 decent bass' . [ MITESH   Sep 08, 2014 ]
Good bass? [ devon  Apr 20, 2014 ]

  • Actually yes. I love these speakers. [ TYLER   Apr 20, 2014 ]
