Excellent factory replacement

Whether you're building your first system or replacing some burned-out factory speakers, Rockford Fosgate's Prime Series speakers offer clean, powerful performance that'll keep you and your friends rockin' as you drive. Plus, Prime speakers are a great way to get Rockford Fosgate sound quality without destroying your bank account.

R1694 6

The R1694 adds a supertweeter and midrange speaker for extra detail.

Better components give better detail

The Prime R1694 6"x9" 4-way speakers sport stiff mica-injected polypropylene woofer cones that deliver strong drums and bass, along with a Mylar cone that provides clean reproduction of the midrange frequencies. The Mylar tweeter and piezo supertweeter add the excitement of strong high-frequency response to your music without a trace of harshness. Built-in crossover networks divide the frequencies going to each driver, so all your music plays faithfully. Grilles are included.

Note: The oversized terminals on these speakers won't connect to a Crutchfield wiring harness. We recommend that you buy a 10-pack of female quick slides that you can splice onto our harness.

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.

Product Research

Features

Woofer Cones: The woofer cones are constructed of mica-injected polypropylene. Mica adds strength and heat resistance to polypropylene, resulting in reduced distortion and improved reliability.

Midrange: Each speaker uses a 2" Mylar cone midrange to add vocal clarity to the speaker.

Tweeter: The 3/4" balanced dome Mylar tweeters offer accurate reproduction of high frequencies for an open sound stage. A semi-dome tweeter has a dome placed inside a cone; balanced dome tweeters are semi-dome tweeters with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the tweeter.

Super-Tweeters: Each speaker also features a 1/2" piezo super-tweeter for added high frequency response.

Classic Rockford sound!

Written By S, Saxton,Pa. on Thursday, September 11, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've had many 6x9 speakers and these sound great. I put them in the rear deck of my old muscle car. The bass is great and they are very sharp and clear. And for the price, I'd buy them again!

Pros: Very clear, deep bass.

Cons: None

Rocking Rockford's

Written By Victor, Guaynabo, PR on Monday, March 24, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Got these to replace factory installed speakers in my '14 Jeep Patriot. Instantly I went from slightly muffled no-depth sound to rich, clear and deep sounds. I am really glad to have picked these up. Will buy two more for my rear doors.

Pros: Very good sounding budget speakers. Easy install. Not much into bas but these have the right amount for my taste.

Cons: Would have liked the tweeter to have been directional but not a real deal breaker for me.
