Focal IC 690
6" x 9" 2-way car speakers
Our take on the Focal IC 690 by Crutchfield's John Pollard
Focal applies the same technology they use in their home audiophile-grade systems to their Integration line of car speakers. Their Integration IC 690 6"x9" speakers feature cones made from Polyglass, a material that combines the warm sound of cellulose with the strength of glass, so they play accurately with no added resonances.
These Integration speakers offer excellent sound quality, while fitting in more vehicles.
The Integration processed-aluminum inverted dome tweeter features a built-in phase plug and wave guide, which act together to improve the dispersion of the high frequencies for a more effective stereo soundstage. You can also tilt the tweeter for better imaging in many vehicles. Integration speakers allow you to put Focal sound quality and construction into your vehicle without a lot of muss and fuss, so you can enjoy a dramatic jump in performance over your old speakers.
These speakers sound so much better than the stock speakers they replaced. Very clean and tight. I'm hearing things I never noticed before in music I've listened to many times. Very pleased.

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.
Voice Coil: The voice coil is wound around a 1" diameter low-mass Kapton former, ensuring no coil deformation.
Inverted Dome Tweeter: The tweeter is an inverted aluminum dome, producing a broad sound stage. The tweeter rotates on its post, so it can be pointed toward the listener.

1 question already asked
1 answer I have a 2004 Acura TSX where the 6x9 speakers have only the low signal sent by the stock amp. The customer with the 2006 TSX mentioned good lows and highs with this speaker, so I assume he / she used an after market amp. I am curious about what kind of an amp and if the rear door speakers were kept with a four channel amp? Thanks, Scott [ Scott Dec 03, 2013 ]
Thanks for your question Scott. Unfortunately this system is not set-up to send questions to a specific owner. However, a quick call or chat with an Advisor should help make sure you get the best speakers for your system. [ Jeff Dec 03, 2013 ] Staff
