Rockford Fosgate Prime R169X3 speaker

The R169X3 adds a piezo supertweeter for extra detail.

Excellent factory replacement

Whether you're building your first system or replacing some burned-out factory speakers, Rockford Fosgate's Prime Series R169X3 6"x9" 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.

Better components give you better detail

Each 6"x9" speaker sports a stiff polypropylene woofer cone that delivers strong drums and bass, along with clean reproduction of the midrange frequencies. The silk dome tweeter and piezo supertweeter add the excitement of strong high-frequency response to your music without a trace of harshness. The built-in crossover network divides the frequencies going to each driver, so all your music plays faithfully. Grilles are included.

Product Highlights:

  • 6"x9" 3-way car speakers (pair)
  • polypropylene woofer cone with rubber surround
  • 1/2" silk dome tweeter
  • piezo supertweeter
  • power range: 2-65 watts RMS (130 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 47-20,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 90 dB
  • top-mount depth: 2-15/16"
  • grilles included
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed these on the rear deck of an '07 Yaris. I cut out the frame of the stock speaker to use as plate to attach these speakers. Worked like a charm. Excellent sound quality for the price point. Plenty of bass and high end. Mid range lacking a bit. Hey they're in a Yaris. Its ok.

Pros: Good sound quality for the price point

Cons: Thin on the mid range. No big deal.

Great Value Speakers

Written By JohnI, Hamilton, Virginia on Sunday, May 03, 2015

Popped these into the rear deck of a 2003 Toyota Coroola for my daughter. Despite a rather poor aftermarket head unit that came with the car, these speakers provided a huge upgrade to the old paper stock speakers that came with the car. I believe the base would be there but for the power of the head unit, but as far as the bass and mid-range, these speakers sounded outstanding. At the price-point offered by Crutchfield, I highly recommend them.

Pros: Geat mid-range and tweeter response; price-point to value is outstanding.

Cons: Nothing negative in terms of performance, just installation. On a 2003 Toyota Corrola, I had to do a bit of extra modification/drilling which was a pain only b/c of the angle and space in the runk (tight).

I have Rockford's prime components in the front, bought these for behind the seat and they combined with the s/o box's are very good.

Pros: Easy setup, great sound for the money


Written By PapaT, Gallatin, TN on Friday, June 06, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these for the rear deck in conjunction with some smaller units for the front doors in my 1994 Cadillac DeVille. Wow. The sound quality of these speakers was much better than I expected for the price. The amount of low-end bass they carried was truly shocking, and they're running off the factory head unit. I highly recommend these as an upgrade for factory speakers, especially for the low price. Make sure you have some equalizer functionality in your head unit to get the full benefit.

Pros: Big, deep, rich bass. No distortion at nice, thick volumes. Highs and mids were clear and present.

Cons: Only thing I could possibly say is that they might have too much bass if your head unit doesn't have EQ capability to fine-tune, but that might be from the very large trunk and large interior of the Cadillac.

Quality for good price

Written By Pete, Northern VA on Sunday, May 11, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased these speakers to place in the back of an SUV. Since my vehicle has a factory amplifier, I had additional wiring available behind the aftermarket Pioneer HU, These were installed in speaker boxes for use when tailgating, camping, etc. The sound quality is excellent for the price. Clear highs, and lows without distortion at decent volume. Quality construction, simple and classic look. The grille is a bit more flexible than I expected, but just need to keep heavy items away. Better to replace a dented grille than a cut speaker. Would recommend to anyone.

Pros: Crisp, clear sound, quality construction, great value

Cons: Somewhat flimsy grille.

Great product

Written By Anonymous, Hollywood, FL on Monday, February 03, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a good sounding speaker. It took only a couple of days to break them in. However, for what I paid for them, this speaker sounds great. If your looking for something that won't break your pocket and sounds nice, I don't think I could of done better. Good over all range.

Pros: Sounds good and cheap. Best bang for your buck.

Cons: For my 1998 honda accord, the hole pattern did not match the factory ones and hard to make new ones.

2003 Corolla

Written By PerpD, Ashburn, VA on Sunday, February 02, 2014

Overall, great speakers! We selected our speakers by going to the new Crutchfield store in Charlottesville, VA which I highly recommend to those with that option as their new car audio simulator was very helpful is selecting the right speakers for our application.

On to the speakers. The difference between these and the stock speakers was night and day. The lows were stronger, the highers existed finally! The stock speakers sounded like they were muffled and underwater when we compared them to these halfway through the install. You can't go wrong with these speakers, the music actually sounds like it was intended once you install these. Paired with Rockford Fosgate Prime R165-S in the front doors the overhauled sound system is amazing!

On a side note, although the instructions provided by Crutchfield were clear, they recommended you make or purchase a speaker adapter to mount the speakers. Long story short, you will need an adapter as the stock speakers mount on holes far from the speaker and because of the way the sheet metal is bent in the vicinity of the speaker (and under the angled rear glass) I didn't even try to match drill holes in the rear deck. Anyways, I purchased some adapters online for "Rear Toyota Aftermarket Speaker Adapter 6x9 Inches" which made the install possible. Not sure why Crutchfield provides the adapter for the front door speakers and not the rear, but just be aware and plan ahead.

Pros: Excellent highs, mids and lows, especially compared to stock speakers. Wish I'd done this a long time ago!

Cons: Have found no cons with the speaker, but all 6x9 speakers for rear deck of Corolla will require an adapter which must be purchased elsewhere.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed these in the rear deck of a 2004 Camry and I could not be more pleased. The sound separation and clarity is about the best I have heard for the price. These are hooked up to a Kenwood Excelon X797 amp.

Pros: Clarity, bass response, separation.

Cons: none yet

Slightly disappointed but overall satisfied.

Written By Justin P, Atlanta on Sunday, October 20, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great speaker. Great brand. Overral satisfied. But, the website informed me that the speaker is compatible with my 2006 Honda Accord EX V6 (Sedan) and then as I was checking out they informed me that I needed to use the factory speaker grilles instead of the grilles that come with the speaker. The factory grilles do not snap into place with the 3-way speaker due to the silk dome pole that the tweeter and midrange are mounted on. Therefore, it is not compatible. Not too big of a deal if you don't mind the appearance of the car while using the grilles that came with the speakers.

Pros: Great speaker. Excellent sound.

Cons: N/A

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to install. Sounds a LOT better than the factory speakers

Pros: Clear sound. Ease of install.

Cons: Not really a con, just an observation with any speaker. I would suggest adding a sub woofer to this install for better reach into the lower sound range for a deeper and enhanced base.

Pros: Easy to install.
