Our take on the Kenwood KFC-6993PS

by Buck Pomerantz
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.

Kenwood's Performance Series speakers deliver the full range of your music with their multi-driver designs. The woofer cone features a Diamond Array pattern that increases the strength of its surface, improving bass response as well as reducing internal vibrations and other distortions. Kenwood's Image Enhancer 4 directs the sound emanating from the midrange drivers and tweeters, blending their signals to give a clean, well-defined focus to your musical soundstage. You'll hear smoother vocals, wider "sweet spot" dispersion, and less distortion.

The KFC-6993PS 6"x9" 5-way speakers employ polypropylene woofer cones to reproduce your lower frequencies with accuracy and strength. The rubber surround resists weathering and provides reliable support that keeps your music playing, no matter what. The 2-3/4" water-resistant paper cone covers the midrange frequencies, providing warmth in the vocal range. A balanced-dome tweeter, a smaller dome supertweeter, and a ceramic supertweeter broadcast the high frequencies effectively to complete the all-round coverage that lets your music stretch out and come alive.

  • 5-way 6"x9" speakers (pair)
  • Diamond Array Pattern polypropylene woofer

Features

Image Enhancer: The KFC-6993PS is equipped with Kenwood's Image Enhancer 4 surrounding the midrange and tweeters. Its smooth rounded surface eliminates most of the reflected sound waves that would interfere with the direct sound waves coming from the tweeters. The end result is a better dispersion pattern, less distortion, and clear high-frequency reproduction.

Cone Woofers: The woofer cones are textured Polypropylene with rubber surrounds. Polypropylene woofers are resistant to moisture and temperature extremes found in automotive applications.

Midrange: The 2-3/4" cone paper midrange adds vocal clarity to the speaker.

Tweeter: Each speaker has a 13/16" PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) balanced dome tweeter. Balanced dome tweeters are semi-dome tweeters with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the tweeter; a balanced-dome tweeter produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging.

Dual Super-Tweeters: Each speaker also features a 1/2" PET dome super-tweeter and a ceramic, flat, super-tweeter for added high frequency response.

Kenwood KFC-6993PS

Written By Anonymous, Brookings, SD on Friday, November 30, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Speakers sound OK, not sure they are as good as my Eclipse 6*9s I had in a different vehicle, then again maybe the acoustics in this vehicle aren't as good. The grilles seem like they stick out unnecessarily far from the speaker boxes I purchased from Crutchfield, and I could not fit the box with the grilles behind my pickup seat. Once again, partially my fault for not taking all the measurements, but it seems like they could slim down the grilles some and still have plenty of room above the speakers for protection.

Kenwood KFC-6993PS

Written By Danner18, Spanish Fork, Ut on Monday, September 06, 2010
 
I bought these speakers to replace my factory infinity sound system in my dodge ram.
Wow, is all i can say. These speakers perform great, they give a a crisp sound and are
very responsive. At high volume there is no distortion, im powering them by a kenwood
kdc-mp345u hu, and a duel xpa4640 4 channel amp, all wired together with streetwires
12 gauge ultracable and have kenwood kfc-p709ps in the rears. Overall it was a major
improvement, i would recommend these to anyone.

I matched up these speakers with a new JVC Arsenal KD-AHD69. They sound great. It is very clean through high volume and they look great.
