About the Audiofrog GS690

Build an Audiofrog system

Audiofrog builds speakers for people who are into astounding car audio. When they demo'd GS Series at Crutchfield headquarters, I listened, slackjawed, fantasizing about a world where speakers this powerful and clear were installed in my car. I'd pair them with Audiofrog's GS10 tweeters and the optimized GS610C crossover system, but there's always the option of using active crossovers in a three-way system with GS40 4" midrange drivers. The beauty of Audiofrog's a la carte approach is that it imposes no limits on your ultimate car audio vision.

Audiofrog GS690 6"x9" Midrange Speaker

Team up this 6"x9" midrange driver with an Audiofrog tweeter, and you'll hear a new world of music in your ride.

What a woofer

Audiofrog designed the GS690 6"x9" woofer to deliver the midrange details in a custom component system. A responsive polypropylene cone provides high internal damping for smoother frequency response, and Audiofrog uses a 1" copper voice coil to enhance power handling.

Creative installation

Audiofrog was founded by experienced installers, who know all the pitfalls and shortcuts of custom installations. With the included mounting hardware, you'll find custom fabrication of a speaker location much easier. The GS690's removable ring can be painted or upholstered, depending on your vision for your interior. The grilles are ideal for painting as well.

Great product! Mids are extremely clean as advertised. Still breaking in and the sound is incredible. They are installed in a sound ordinance 6 X 9 box and meant to supply support to 6.5 Fosgate component set, 2 jbl 6.5's, 4 jbl 6x9's , 2 Fosgate 8" Drivers and Jl audio 12 tw3 in a motorhome. If purchased with the intent of solely providing solid mids as intended you will be very happy.

The speakers were not an exact fit for my Lexus GX470 as the mounting holes on the speakers didn't align perfectly with the OEM mounting bracket.

Having purchased a myriad of high end audio equipment over the years, I leased a Tacoma and just wanted an upgrade to the sound. These blew my mind, when properly tuned with a DSP, they sound absolutrly amazing and befitting a price point much higher than they sell for. Before I hooked up my subs i crossed them a little lower than I did after the sub install, and quite frankly, you might enjoy the sound just that way. I have the speakers running off an Arc Audio Xdi 1220.6 getting 150w per channel. The high sensitivity allows you to get louder with less power. Do it, you wont regret making this purchase.

Pros: -Sound Quality -Build Quality -Value -Oustanding Customer Support by Andy at Audiofrog

Cons: -none that i can find so far

Cheap design, good sound.

Overall I'm not thrilled with these speakers. My biggest issue is with the wire connectors. The spade connectors are very fragile and one of the worst designs I've ever seen. They are pushed through a pcb and only held on by solder to contact pads on the pcb. It is very easy to break these with even moderate force. Now this wouldn't be a big deal if they even included connectors, but they don't so if you happen to have connectors that need a bit of force to go on, there is a good chance you could break the connection with the PCB. Luckily I was able to prevent a return by resoldering the connectors to the board, but this is all really unacceptable for a product at this price point. On top of that the sound is good, but not particularly great. I would say these are on par with the MM series by polk. Which is a compliment, but not to value. Still, this is probably the best 6x9 in this price range so what can you do? They've got the market cornered for now.

Pros: Good Sound, Strong Mids.

Cons: Build Quality, Price, Needs a fair amount of EQ

Incredible midbass

I finally was able to get my new Audiofrog's installed. I went with these along with a pair of GS420 in the dash. I have always been a huge fan of large midbass drivers in the front doors. In my past Toyotas, I have always done crazy custom doors or mounts with 8" drivers to really get the type of midbass I desire. Being older and desiring not to have to go to that extreme any longer, I was very happy to find a number of high end speaker manufacturers no producing a quality 6x9 that would be a direct drop in. After reading wonderful reviews about Audiofrog I thought I'd give them a try... Boy I am glad I did. I currently don't have a sub and they really do go deep and have a ton of impact both in the midbass and low frequency range. These are great drivers. When paired with a good sub and proper dampening done to the doors, these things rock... Without dampening I'm sure they'd rattle the doors something terrible.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

Product Research

Features

Durability: The Nitrile-Butadiene Rubber (NBR) surround is resistant to ultraviolet rays, temperature extremes, and humidity to add to the speaker's reliability and longevity.

Multi Component Systems: The GS690s are designed to mate with the GS10 tweeters (item number 898GS10, sold separately) using the GS610C passive crossovers (item number 898GS610C, sold separately). They can also be used in an active system with (or without) the GS40 midrange (item number 898GS40, sold separately) and the GS10 tweeters using an electronic crossover.

Note: Audiofrog recommends a low pass crossover set no higher than 3.5 kHz. The minimum recommended slope is 12 dB/octave.
