About the Rockford Fosgate T1693

Intense performance

Rockford Fosgate builds their Power Series speakers for the true car audio enthusiast. These Power T1693 6"x9" speakers utilize advanced design elements to ensure that they'll deliver superior sound in your vehicle for a long, long time.

Superior materials

The lightweight polypropylene cone is reinforced with strong carbon fibers so it'll keep its shape when you're pushing the speaker hard. You'll hear accurate reproduction of the lower and midrange frequencies, while the 1" aluminum dome tweeter and supertweeter make the high frequencies sparkle. These speakers will handle up to 100 watts RMS so you should connect an external amplifier to get the most out of them.

Rockford Fosgate innovations

Proprietary VAST™ technology increases the woofer's cone area without increasing the size of the basket. This larger cone gives you deeper lows and more power handling than the average 6"x9" speaker, and it's supported by a durable rubber surround that's designed to last. Open slots on the frame make it easier to install these speakers if the factory holes are slightly off.

Product highlights:

  • 3-way 6"x9" speakers (pair)
  • carbon fiber and polypropylene woofer with butyl rubber surround
  • 1" aluminum dome tweeter and supertweeter
  • Vertical Attach Surround Technique (VAST™) increases cone area

Product Research


Injection-Molded Woofers: The woofer cones are injection-molded carbon fiber and polypropylene. This molding process assures a uniform cone thickness for superior linearity and clarity. It is also light weight and rigid for decreased distortion and improved bass response.

Butyl Rubber Surrounds: The butyl rubber surrounds dampen unwanted harmonic distortion while maintaining linear geometry under extreme weather conditions. This leads to less distortion, superior frequency response, and superior durability.

CEA-2031 Compliant: Power handling conforms to CEA-2031 industry standards. This means the speaker has the capacity to handle its rated power under continuous demand, not just for an instant.

Klippel Verified: The Klippel distortion analyzer, a device that uses a laser and sophisticated software to do large-scale analysis of drivers in motion, lets Rockford Fosgate optimize the speaker's motor structure, voice coil alignment, and suspension to yield the best possible performance.

VAST Surround: The Vertical Attach Surround Technique (VAST) increases a speaker's effective radiating cone area without increasing the size of the basket.

Tweeters: The 1" aluminum dome tweeter and 1/2" aluminum dome super tweeter are mounted at an angle, so they can be aimed for optimum imaging.

StampCast Basket: The T152 features StampCast steel baskets for added rigidity.

Speaker Terminals: These speakers have 0.25" wide positive (+) terminals and 0.187" wide negative (-) terminals, which are too large for the vehicle-specific speaker harnesses supplied by Crutchfield for many vehicle applications. It is recommended that a pack of assorted female quick slides (item number 120FQS10PK, sold separately) be purchased and spliced to the harnesses to adapt them to the speaker terminals.

Are these speakers able to be powered at 75x4 rms at 2 ohms safely? Amp is a Kenwood KAC-314

Why wont these fit 2018 dodge charger?
[ John  Dec 30, 2020 ]
1 answer
The Rockford Fosgate T1693 do not fit most models of the 2018 Dodge Charger due to mounting height issues with the tweeters interfering with the factory grille. For more specific information on why these don't fit, give us a call at 1-800-324-9695 so we can narrow down your model Charger and we'll be happy to go over other options with you!

Why wouldn't these fit in a 2018 Tacoma double cab? It offers other 6x9s but not these
[ Palmeri13  Nov 11, 2019 ]
1 answer
These won't fit in your cab because of the size of the speaker pod. They possibly could fit if modified, but Crutchfield likes to do things where it's not to much Modification to do or any at all.
[ Harrison  Nov 11, 2019 ]
Any reason why these wont fit the 3rd gen Tacoma? The other RF 6x9 says they fit but these ones say it wont.
[ Tyler  Jun 11, 2019 ]
1 answer
Tyler, the fitment issue could be any number of things. Without knowing the exact year, make, model and trim, I wouldnt be able to say for sure. One of our advisors would be happy to help you figure it out!
[ Calvin  Jun 20, 2019 ]  Staff
What are the requirements on the size of the sealed speaker box for these speakers?
[ Clint  Nov 07, 2017 ]

I'm not sure actually, I bought them for my rear replacement speakers in my 2000 Chevy Blazer. Thay are a true 6" X 9" replacement speaker though and work great, hope this helps.
[ Richard J.  Nov 07, 2017 ]
I have the box at home that they come with, but for a 6x9, if you are replacing as I did in the deck of a 89 Corvette, the size was barely enough for the magnet to fit, and I still have a great bass response, with amp these are phenomenal, I put them in my wife's van, and those are not amped, but still sound great.
[ Norman  Nov 07, 2017 ]
What Amp would you suggest for these speakers?
[ Adnan  Feb 09, 2017 ]
1 answer
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your speakers I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system.
