Esprit Series E69X 6

Helix's German engineering pedigree really shows up in their Esprit Series speakers, which offer big technological bang for the buck. The E69X 6"x9" speakers use an 3/4" silk dome tweeter for smooth high-frequency detail, and a 2" mylar midrange helps to add more definition to vocals and instrumentals. Each speaker features a rigid 6"x9" woven fiberglass cone that delivers tight bass reproduction, while the durable rubber surround helps this speaker provide exceptional sound for years to come.

Built for power

A tough stamped-steel basket houses the three drivers, providing the stability needed to maintain accurate reproduction when the music's turned up loud. The Esprit E69X speakers will sound great powered by an aftermarket car stereo, but an outboard amplifier will give you the best audio quality. Grilles are included.

Product Highlights:

  • 6"x9" 3-way speakers (pair)
  • woven fiberglass woofer cone with rubber surround
  • 3/4" silk dome tweeter
  • 2" mylar midrange
  • power range: 5-50 watts RMS (150 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 35-22,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 92 dB
  • top-mount depth: 2-15/16"
  • grilles included
  • warranty: 2 years
  • 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.

Features

Woofer Materials: Each woofer cone is made of woven fiberglass and has a durable rubber surround. This woven fiberglass material is very light and extremely stiff, minimizing cone flex and resulting in faster transients and finer detail.

Tweeter/Midrange: Each speaker has a 3/4" silk dome tweeter with a neodymium motor structure and a 2" Mylar midrange for a smooth transition from the woofer to the higher frequency output.

Magnet cover: The E 69X are shipped with a rubber magnet cover to protect the speaker. If the cover is removed the depth changes slightly:

  • Top Mount Depth: 2.80"
  • Bottom Mount Depth: 2.954"

Fits in Prius!

Written By Jay, Findlay, OH on Saturday, August 18, 2012

I installed them in the front door of my 2012 Toyota Prius. They fit without touching the glass nor the inside door panel (with some dremeling of the panel) using SAK010, 1" deep speaker adapters. You will need to drill two holes for the speaker adapters in the door but some silicon should prevent rust and rattling. Note, the recommended Scosche 142SAT69 speaker adapters don't fit a 2012 Prius and you will have to drill those out too so don't bother getting 6 1/2" speakers for the front. You might as well get 6 x 9's and get better sound.

UPDATED 2/4/13: The bass completely disappears when the temperature drops to around 15 degrees F.

Pros: Rich bass response.

Cons: None

You'll need speaker wire to connect your speakers to your amp.
Keep your speakers clean and dry. They compress to fit behind your speakers.
These speaker connectors are handy if you're running new speaker wire or if your speakers have oversized terminals.
The right tools will help keep your installation simple and clean.
