Our take on the Rockford Fosgate Prime R1693

by Buck Pomerantz
Rockford Fosgate

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.

Put Rockford Fosgate sound in your car without breaking the bank. Whether you're building your first system or replacing some burned-out factory speakers, Prime speakers offer clean, powerful performance that'll keep you and your friends entertained as you drive.

The Prime R1693 6" x 9" 3-way speakers sport stiff mica-injected polypropylene woofer cones that deliver strong drums and bass, along with clean reproduction of the lower midrange frequencies. Mylar drivers broadcast the midrange information that adds realism to the vocals and instruments. Mylar dome tweeters bring out the high-frequency details that make your music sound more lively. Built-in crossover networks ensure smooth audio response, so all your music plays faithfully.

Great for the price -suggest good headunit maybe amp.

Written By Andrew R, Lancaster, PA on Saturday, January 26, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Seem great so far -some of the reviews I read on here may be misleading as they perform well -but are nothing special -at least not that I have found yet. I'm running them in an old car and they are about 5ft away from me in the rear deck (yes the car is that big) I'm just running them off an old head unit that I had laying around that puts out 22w rms 50w peak -there is plenty of sound coming out of them however with a better head unit or amp I can see them sounding much better -for me I'm still in the testing phase with them -but like I said before -the price is right for a well built speaker with exceptional sound quality.
Pros:
Great price, well built, decent sound
Cons:
I would not call them an audiophiles choice.

Well Rounded Speaker!!

Written By SteveL, Chicago, Il on Wednesday, January 02, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Replaced my 4 stock 6x9's with these GREAT speakers in my '11 Jeep Patriot. Installation was really easy. Only took about 45 mins to install all 4 speakers. The only hiccup I ran into was the two SHORTER factory mounting screws wouldn't line up in the new speakers' screw holes. The LONG factory screws fit perfectly. Other than that, very easy install, especially with the wire harnesses Crutchfield included. As far as sound, I've had custom audio in EVERY car or truck I've ever owned and these have great separation, surprisingly low bass response, and crisp highs. Definitely 100% better than stock and a great investment if you don't want to go with a full-on system. Oh, and the factory head-unit has PLENTY of power to push these speakers. No need for an amp...
Pros:
Awesome sound, easy install.
Cons:
2 screw holes don't QUITE line up, but very easily remedied if you know how to turn a screwdriver.

Made my factory stereo come alive! The best deal for a Top brand set of speakers.
Pros:
Great speakers to replace factory off brand.
Cons:
Screw holes did not line up with factory mounting. Also very limited space to use factory screws, had to modify. I blame this on the design of the car though, NOT the new speakers. My entire back seat and dash had to be removed to install.

Great sound!

Written By Tom J, Mentor, OH on Thursday, December 13, 2012
 
I have these hooked to my new JVC Arsenal KD-AHD-79 direct and the sound quality is amazing. They can drive me out of the car before they begin to even hint at distortion. I was worried about bass response but like most of the review's have already stated: That is not a concern, these speakers are great!
Pros:
Great response at any level, makes classic rock come alive!
Cons:
None

Fosgate Speakers Rock

Written By Rey, San Antonio , TX on Monday, October 15, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have always like Rockford Fosgate speakers and really like these new 6x9 speakers. I bought them as an upgrade to my 1989 Chevy Corvette as the factory ones gave out. I reviewed these speakers and with the price advertised from Crutchfield I decided to by these speakers. I recieved these speakers and had no problems installing them in my Corvette. I was amazed with the clarity and sound these Fosgate speakers made in my vehicle. I have them hooked to an Alpine 7871 CD changer controller and no amp. The sound was three times better than factory speakers and now ny friends think I have put in a boom box in my rear deck as they put out a good bass thump as well as mids and highs. Thanks again Crutchfield for good customer service and putting out good products.
Pros:
great sound, easy to install, great affordable price
Cons:
non at this time

Fosgate speakers

Written By Elstro17, 33063 on Monday, October 08, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
If your looking for a speaker to kick butt with hip hop, this is the one. If your looking for a speaker to give you all around sound for rock, jazz, or classical, you might want to look elsewhere. This, like all Rockford fosgate speakers are great quality, crystal clear, and overwhelm my door speakers, but don't give me the range I am looking for with concerns of mid ranges of bass. Mids and highs are second to none. Might have to add a subwoofer and amplifier. But that being said, I am still very happy with them.
Pros:
Mids, highs, low or deep bass, crystal clear!
Cons:
Mid or high range bass are less than desirable.

Good product and price

Written By PaulM, Chicago on Monday, September 10, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers are a nice improvement over the stock 6x9s in my Jeep Patriot. Compared to the stock speakers, which are pretty cheap paper cones, the Rockford Fosgate 3-ways are much easier on the ears and provide clearer sound. I've found they do an excellent job at reproducing studio-recorded music, especially electronica and pop, as those styles of music typically focus on defined dynamic ranges: mostly low-end, some vocals, and strong high-end percussion, synth, and electric guitars. They lack a good low-mid range for clear, punchy male vocals, and a true flat dynamic range for orchestral/choral music. Usually, I don't listen to those types of music while driving, so it's not as much of an issue. I wouldn't use these speakers in a home setup, but they work fine on the road, especially for the price!
Pros:
Great for pop, electronica. Decent low-end for kick drums and low bass, crisp highs and ultra-highs. Good price.
Cons:
Missing punchy low/mid range for male vocals and baritone-voiced instruments. Not ideal for true flat, full range sound.

I was hoping for more bass punch from this brand. Gets scary at 30 vol using my new Kenwood head unit. Fits rear sides on 97 Saab Conv. with easy cutting mods.
Pros:
Brand. Quality build. Beautiful pro look.
Cons:
Cant handle extreme bass situation. You're going to need that sub.

Past due upgrade

Written By JohnP, Florida on Monday, April 02, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have a 1999 Toyota Camry LE that still had the factory speakers and CD receiver. The difference with the new speakers was of course great. After breaking them in for a couple of weeks they sound even better. I am trying to keep the sound system as stock as possible because I don't care if people hear my music in the next car and these speakers have enough kick to make me happy. I prefer rock and country which these speakers handle very nicely. Bass is a little distorted at high volumes but with me that is not an issue since I am not a bass head. Highs are very good with little to know distortion at high volume. I prefer buying speakers and electronics through Crutchfield because the support is great and most of the time they provide the cables and adapters you need for installation. The prices are reasonable and sometimes better compared to other vendors. Will definitely return for future upgrades to my car audio.
Pros:
Great sound for the price!
Cons:
Installation of speakers in my car was a pain in the butt. Thank goodness there is no video on Youtube showing me in the trunk trying to mount the new speakers. I blame the engineers at Toyota for making it difficult to upgrade the sound system!

Love RF

Written By Anonymous, Albany ny on Monday, February 27, 2012
 
I research all my buys for weeks and weeks and this one came highly recommended. For the price they are a steal and you get the confidence of Rockford. Before they were broken in they sounded hollow as expected but came to life pretty soon. One downside is I still feel like it has a weak response in the upper frequencies of the woofer which I can only tell when I compare to my alpine Sps 610c. I have them running off 50 w rme @ 4 ohm. They get very loud before my amp distorts and I'm comfortable with their durability when I cross them at 125hz so there is no bottoming out. 'bass' response is pretty good but I have no real opinion because I'm spoiled my my subs. Overall I would buy them again even tho they are the weakest of my speakers because the price is outstanding. Also, I'm a treble lover and the tweeters give more then I need before that shrill distortion. If this is in your price range get it. Happy listening! THank you crutchfield!

WOW

Written By Chad Alan, Wisconsin Rapids, WI on Sunday, February 26, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
My first purchase of aftermarket speakers after reading all the great reviews about these Fosgates. I ordered this 6x9 and the 5 1/4 for up front. Installation was pretty comlicated once it was time to replace the rear speakers because I had to take out my entire back seat and a bunch of trim pieces to get to the stock speakers.

Okay, first off I want to say this was probably one of the best investments I've made for my car in the time I've owned it. I've been in alot of cars in my life and alot of cars with high end $1000 + sound systems and these speakers just running off of my Panasonic CQ1203 head unit sound amazing. I had high expectations and these were way better than I could have hoped. The difference between these and my stock speakers is incredible. I feel like I've been missing out I hear so much more in the same songs now that I didn't before. Great Bass, MID PUNCH, and awesome highs. I'm very satisfied. BUY THESE SPEAKERS they are such a good deal and sound so good. I'm still in the break-in process which is recomended for about 10 hours of use since it is winter and I live in WI, but not even turned half-way up is already way louder than my stock speakers maxed out. And to mention all the free installation supplies included. Glad I Chose these speakers and Crutchfield!!
Pros:
Clear tight bass, Punch, crisp highs!
Cons:
Nothing that I can think of!

Great Product

Written By JasonS, Rochester, NY on Wednesday, November 02, 2011
 
Initially purchased to replace the blown 6x9 in the back of my 94 Saab, took a tweek or two, but they do make a perfect fit, nice and snug. Wouldn't advise just buying without knowing if they'll fit, everything's different. Use Crutch Field's advice when it says it wont fit. If it says that it fits then these are absolutely perfect. I knew I could modify my bracket but they fit nice. The bass from this set isnt the best, but for car speakers they are impressive, creates crisp treble, considering the fact that there car speakers. JL Audio is better, but for the price they cant be beat. In all honesty I see no major difference between the two. If your on a tight budget, I would highly advice getting these. Hooked up to a pioneer receiver creates crisp sound and good bass. Haven't blown them once and I've put them through some rough tests. Reliable, wont take a dump on your parade when you least expect it. Awesome choice, 5 stars all the way!! If you know what your doing as far as insulation, these with fly in like a breeze and wont rip on the first month like some other products do.

I installed these in the rear deck of a 2000 Toyota Echo for a friend. Everything went in like a breeze, and boy do they sound incredible. I've bought Rockford Fosgate stuff in the past, and have never been let down by them. PLENTY of bottom end for a 6x9, and the highs are crystal clear. For the money, I doubt you'd find a better speaker in this size.

A Solid 6X9

Written By RandyBalboa, Balboa Island on Tuesday, June 28, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These 6X9 speakers are a great value and have a nice even balanced sound. They look great and have a nice protective grill. These are for a 87 VW Vanagon, and are mounted at the removable foot plate at the bottom of the rear seat. These replaced some nice 26 year old Sony 6 X 9's. Installation was a no- brainer with exception to the cheesy mounting screw flat nuts that are not worthy of mounting these nice speakers, but does get the job done if you don't get a bad one or strip one. Sound wise was as advertised and these have a very even sound, until you turn up the volume... WOW! my van was thumpin with a new heartbeat! Good packaging, and as usual great service and delivery time from the Crutchfield Team.

I have a pair of these 6x9s installed in their own sealed boxes and to my
surprise they sound fantastic. I previously had some ancient MGAs and noticed
their magnets were slightly larger than the Rockfords, tell you what, speaker
technology has come a long way, the Rockfords have MUCH more tighter bass and
smooth lows than my MGAs as well as clear highs without distortion. If your
looking to add some tight bass without breaking the bank, look no further, these
are worth every penny.

Great replacement for factory rear deck speakers

Written By Jim B., Sterling, VA on Sunday, April 10, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I replaced the stock 6x9's on the rear shelf in my 2004 Impala. I also treated
the shelf with a product similar to Dynamat. The speakers fit pretty well in the
stock brackets although I did need to enlarge the opening for the screw head in
the speaker to use the stock screws. I used a rotary tool with a roto-zip bit
(carefully!). It didn't take much and only a few minutes. The results were well
worth the trouble. The bass is really crisp now, and the sound stays clear to
the top of the volume adjustment on the stock audio system. I don't usually
listen at really high volume, so I won't be upgrading the amp. All in all, the
speakers seem to be an excellent choice. Thinking back I might have been
able to use the mounting screws supplied with the speakers. Give it a try!!

Clear and Warm Sound

Written By Anonymous, Orlando, Florida on Friday, January 29, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These are cost effective high quality 6 x 9 speakers.

I used these as rear deck replacements for aftermarket 6 1/2 inch round speakers
that ware mounted utilizing a universal 6 1/2 to 6 x 9 speaker mounting bracket.

These have a free floating polyglass woofer produces a strong mid bass.
Midrange and highs have a warm crip sound. Vocals are reproduced clear and
original with a high quality resolution.

Instalation notes: The midrange and tweeter tower post extends over the speaker.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I am in love with these speakers! I just put these in my 1994 saab 900s and all i can say is wow. They have nice bass, they are clear and wont distort until i have my volume a little over 3/4 the way up. This is a must buy for the price

Great upgrade for a factory system...

Written By Scott, Janesville, WI on Wednesday, April 15, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Recently, one of the factory 5 1/4" front door speakers blew the woofer cone away from the lower housing creating an unpalatable buzzing noise from the drives front door.

After years of of not receiving a Crutchfield catalog (long before the Internet and Websites), I decided to troll around the site and see if I could find a reasonably priced upgrade to replace all four of the six OE speakers in my 1995 Chrysler Concorde.

After plugging all of the information in, I came upon these new for Crutchfield (and Rockford Fosgate) Prime R1693 6 x 9" for the deck 3-way and Prime R152 5-1/4" 2-way for the doors.

Installation instructions were impeccable and well thought out and the wiring harnesses, along with shipping (all included free with my online order) have helped breath new life into a decent factory Chrysler Stereo w/Cassette (yes I still have a large collection of those, and the deck still operates like new) have helped me carry out my plan of keeping my car for a few more years (recently had a number of preventive mechanical and cosmetic repairs done to the car as well).

To make a long story short; Thank You Crutchfield for making an old(er) car sound great and offering great products and good prices. Website is very interactive and numerous choices are to be found for any vehicle and this helped me greatly for what I needed.

Thanks Again

GREAT FOR THE MONEY

Written By christopher, Massapequa Park, NY on Saturday, April 04, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers are great for the price. Nice highs and midrange, decent lows. I have these in the rear deck of 2002 civic coupe. I power them with a Kenwood KDC-MP342U receiver,also cheap, also good for the money. I use a pair of Kicker KS5250 5-1/4 front speakers - they work well together. I don't play my music too loud but these speakers do start to distort at about two thirds volume. I would recommend these speakers, especially to anyone building a system on a budget.
