Enhanced sound

These KFC-1696PS 6-1/2" speakers rock a polypropylene cone with a diamond array pattern, which minimizes distortion, while a rubber surround ensures overall durability. All the musical details are handled by the balanced dome tweeter, and dispersion is improved by Kenwood's proprietary Sound Field Enhancer.

Kenwood's Acoustic Sound Harmonizer uses slots on the mount housing the tweeter to improve the transition to the higher frequencies, so you'll experience a smoother sound overall. Grilles are included for custom installations.

Features

Mounting: The KFC-1696PS will fit in in standard three-hole and four-hole 6½" applications. They can also be mounted in 6¾" applications, but because the extra screw holes create an air leak in the larger opening, speaker baffles should be used.

Customer Q&A

Q
Do that have bass?
[ Jimmy  Aug 24, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
These do not have the bass you might be looking for. They are really for a more clearer sound coming from the dash.

Q
What size speaker baffles should I use?
[ Tommy  Jun 27, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
Hi Jaime. There are two baffles that would work with these speakers. Depending on the depth available at your speaker location, will determine the proper size baffle. You can use a 3" or a 3.25" depth baffle. Please chat with us online or by phone at 1-800-324-9695, we will be happy to take a look at the information on your vehicle to see which baffle would work best for you.

Q
Do I need and AMP if this is the only upgrade I am making? I am only replacing the speakers, and I am not running from a box in the back.
[ chaz  Oct 16, 2019 ]

A
They would sound better with an amp but you don't need one. Most factory or aftermarket radios would be able to power them adequately.
[ Cosmo  Oct 29, 2019 ]  Staff
A
I bought these speakers and did not need to use an amp. They wired directly to the head unit harness that matched my car. Double check your sizing before ordering. I called the help number and the Crutchfield staff basically built me an entirely new system over the phone. You won't be disappointed.
[ Will  Oct 29, 2019 ]
Q
Does it need mounting brackets or adapters for these speakers to installed? 2009 Honda Civic LX Sedan
[ Ernie Dela Cruz  Oct 14, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
Yes! A bracket is required, and a harness to adapt your OEM connections. Both are included for free when the vehicle is entered on the website or if you place an order with one of our advisors! https://www.crutchfield.com/support/ContactUs.aspx
