Upgrade in style
You're ready: to do away with unbearable factory sound and to gain a totally authentic experience listening to music in the car. With Focal's Universal Integration Series speakers installed in your car, a new era has begun — one in which it's easy to enjoy every moment of your drive. Focal provides such a dramatic boost in sound quality by applying much of the same technology in these car speakers that they use in their studio and audiophile-grade home systems.
Superior materials and design
Focal's ICU 690 2-way 6"x9" car speakers employ a polyglass woofer cone to give you a warm, natural sound with enhanced strength for accurate playback with no added resonances. An aluminum/magnesium inverted dome tweeter, backed by a built-in crossover, delivers astonishing detail in the high range and integrates an acoustic horn design for an improved soundstage across your dash. Focal also gives you two levels of tweeter adjustment so that you can adjust for poor factory speaker placement.
High sensitivity design
Planning to drive these speakers off a head unit? No problem. They're designed to take advantage of every bit of power supplied to give you the best audio quality possible. However, Focal's famous sound soars when powered by an aftermarket amp!

Focal ICU 690 reviews
Had these speakers installed somewhere long story short they sounded bad due to the crappy install I bought proper brackets and hardware for these and they sound awesome! They did take a while to break in I'm about a month in and it still feels like everyday they sound a little bit better. Running it off my stock head unit probably only sends like 20 watts to the speakers and they can handle up to 80RMS, I'm going to install an amp definitely soon though to get the full sound. I personally love my bass and these seem to deliver most of the time I'd give em a 7 out of 10 in bass being powered off the head and when looking at them being powered they hardly even flex and produce a good amount of bass I can only imagine what they sound like with a proper amp I would definitely recommend these to anybody. The overall sound is very balanced, very natural, and overall extremely crisp for being "low end" speaker in focals lineup of speakers definitely worth the price. btw I installed these on a Toyota Tacoma the speakers are at my like feet but still sound pretty directional due to the tweeter design, don't cheap out on the parts and install with proper equipment and you won't be disappointed!
Pros: Great sound that is very efficient at low power.
Cons: Had to order custom brackets

Put these in the rear doors of my 2018 Ram. They sounded awesome running straight from the factory head unit, but sounded even better when hooked up to the amp (Kicker Key Amp). They produce great bass with the amp, pretty good without. Installation was a breeze, about five minutes on each door with the wiring harness from Crutchfield. I am totally satisfied, and I'm a little picky. I also added a 10" sub under the seat, (separate amp from the Kicker Key Amp.). Sub might not have been necessary, but why not?
Pros: Great sound. Easy hookup.

Polyglass Cone: The woofer cone has a cellulose pulp base and is coated with a uniform deposit of hollow glass microballs. The addition of the Polyglass layer significantly increases the cone's rigidity without adding much weight. This combination takes advantage of the accuracy and neutrality of the hard outer surface, but maintains the superior damping characteristics of the cellulose pulp.
Surround: The butyl rubber surround is resistant to ultraviolet rays, temperature extremes, and humidity to add to the speaker's reliability and longevity.
Inverted Dome Tweeter: The tweeter is an inverted Aluminum/Magnesium dome, producing a broad sound stage. A switch on the tweeter allows adjustment of the tweeter output; choose flat or +3 dB.
