Overview

Our take on the Infinity Kappa 693.7i

Infinity Kappa speakers incorporate the latest technology to provide you with outstanding sound reproduction. And, thanks to Infinity's innovative low-impedance design, they're built for high efficiency as well.

Infinity Kappa speakers incorporate the latest technology to provide you with outstanding sound reproduction. And, thanks to Infinity's innovative low-impedance design, they're built for high efficiency as well.

The Kappa 693.7i 6"x9" speaker features a super-stiff woofer cone to minimize flexing that can cause distortion. The cone's Plus One design offers a larger surface area than other 6"x9" speakers, for improved bass output and efficiency. The woofer's powerful, compact neodymium magnets weigh much less than traditional magnets — a nice feature when you're trying to save weight in your high-performance vehicle.

Infinity uses a M.M.D. midrange that reproduces the music the way it was recorded, with minimal coloration or distortion. A tweeter complements the midrange with stellar projection of the highs.

The computer-optimized outboard crossover employs audiophile-grade components to separate highs and lows so that the woofer and tweeters work together perfectly. A tweeter level control allows you to tailor the tweeters' response for perfect balance.

Important Note: These Infinity speakers use a low impedance design to pull more power safely from your car stereo or amplifier. This design is compatible with all factory and aftermarket stereos.

Awesome speakers!

Raymond from New York on 3/5/2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not sure why some are saying the bass and midbass on these are no good. The sound these speakers reproduce is amazing! This setup has far more bass, mids, and far more crisp high's than my OEM speakers have in my 08 Caliber. Got these for an awesome deal also from the scratch and dent section, which not sure why they were there, these things look brand new. Thanks again Crutchfield!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great set of speakers. The first thing i noticed when i took these out the package was the fact that they are so light weight! They have great highs, and were perfect for the custome radio box i built for my Semi Truck. I powered these with a Sony CDX-GT330 and also have a set of Infiniti Kappa 23.7i's to match these 6x9's. The whole package goes together very well.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First I want to say that Crutchfield says that these speakers will not fit a 1997 Honda civic coupe. Im here to tell you that they do fit perfect, the holes line up exactly as they should. These are great speakers with great highs and lows. The mid is very tight. For the money they are well worth it and I would reccomend to anyone who is looking for clarity and great sound.

toywarwagon from Ukiah, California on 11/20/2008

1966 Ford Mustang

The install into my 1966 mustang could not have been simpler. These things sound awesome. I am running them off a Pioneer DEH-700BT deck and a 4.540 amp. So they are recieving 135 watts and have not heard one bit of distortion from them. When tuning them in I kept having to check to see if I turned subs off, the bass is that strong. And I also like the adjustable tweeter settings on the tweeter itself. So if you have room for 6x9's, you can't go wrong with these.

Very nice!

Victor Q from Chicago, IL on 11/17/2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I would like to first say these speakers are great and I would definitely recommend them to anyone. I give them only four stars due to the fact that they do not provide the mid bass I would have liked, although I will say these clearly state that they are "loud speakers" and I completely agree with Infinity. The provided crossovers provide beautiful highs and some decent mids if you listen to your music slightly louder. If powered with a nice amp I am sure these things will impress far more then they have already. I have them powered with an Alpine (IDA-X100) which give them great clarity at any volume. Although the speakers due provide a db increase of +3 however, I found at high volume the sound becomes "over powered" sounding. I found them to be perfect at a flat level. Bottom line: If you're looking for a great sounding pair of 6x9s that will fill your ride with amazing sound with today's listed price, look no further. If you're looking for solid bass, then an amp should probably do the trick.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have to say this was an impulse buy. I wanted some good 6x9's and haved used Infinity before and are known for their clarity. I did not realize they came with a crossover. If you are looking for componet speakers with out the mess, I highly recommend these 1 piece 6x9s. I have them running off a Sony Xplod amp with built in EQ + my JVC Arsenal with added EQ settings; they sound great!

Loud and Clear

Mr.Allthat from NH on 10/21/2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these to go in the custom sound bar I have in my 99 Wrangler. I used to have a set of Alpine Type-R 6x9's in the sound bar and these are a huge difference. The Infinity's are much louder and clearer running of my Alpine Deck (500CDA9805). The only downside is that they don't have a lot of mid-bass compared to the Alpine speakers. I would highly recommend these especially if you cannot afford or, in my case, fit a 4 channel amp in your vehicle. I also have an Infinity 10" sub in a custom box behind my rear seat which fills in 100hz and below. I can tell you that my Infinity reference 4x6 plates in the dash can't keep up in volume with these speakers. I have to fade it about 6 dB to the front to balance them out. Deffinitely will be upgrading the front to 5 1/4" Kappas when I have the money.

Quality 6x9s

Kyle from Malone, New York on 10/10/2008

I bought these speakers to go with a Infinity 475a Amp, and I absolutely love them. I can crank it to full volume and the speakers scream. absolutely no distortion whatsoever. The external crossovers do an excellent job of filtering out the lows that full range speakers tend to have issues reproducing. The downside is, you basically need a subwoofer to get any satisfying bass response. What it does put out for lows is crisp and does not overpower the mids. Only reason I am giving them a 4 out of 5 is the lack of more high end. It puts out very crisp highs, but I was hoping for more. The infinity kappa 50.7cs component speakers I got for the front do a great job of filling in for the lack of highs though. I would definitely not hesistate to buy these speakers if you're trying to decide. They really scream and can handle everything you throw at them. Just make sure to run them close if not over RMS and don't expect them to take the place of a subwoofer.

I put these speakers in the back of my 99 Monte Carlo and they sound great. I also put in a matching set of infinity Kappa 5.25" speakers in the front. The sound quality out of these is amazing they dont distort until your eardrums are hurting. they pick up highs great you can hear things you never could with stock speakers. work great if you have a sub, really compliments the sub well.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This set of speakers that I have recently installed are by far the best sounding speakers I have ever bought and that any of my friends have bought. They are clear in the highs and lows and have a great amount of bass at any range. Rock or rap, these speakers never sound bad. Thank you infinity for this wonderful product.

Good Speaker

Matt from NC on 6/24/2008

These are some quality speakers. I've never had any problems with the highs, but after reading some of these other reviews I saw a guy running only 50 watts rms per channel was having bass problems too. I have my entire rear deck, floor, doors, and trunk dynamated with at least 2 layers each. I expected much more midbass from them, but it could just be a power issue. I am going to get a Rockford T600-4 amp and hook them up to some Polk Momo 6"x9"s. Probably the only reason I switched is because the amp is underrated in the first place, so +150 watts rms @ 2 ohms would cook these speakers. I do definitely recommend them to someone with the right amp.

Disappointed for several reasons

Christopher from Sacramento, CA on 4/16/2008

2005 Toyota Camry
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers do not sound good in my car at all. I replaced the stock 6x9's in the rear deck of my 2005 Camry LE with these Infinities. I was very meticulous about the install and was expecting louder (due to the 2-ohm load) and clearer sound. Well, I was very disappointed when I first powered these speakers up. No sub base at all (but I did expect a bit of that, owing to the crossover that comes with the speakers). Low-base and mid-ranges are muddy and muffled, like the speakers have a bath towel lying across them. The high-ranges seem ok. Did I wire the crossover correctly? Did I plug the correct wires into the tweet/woofs (I did; the wire ends are keyed to prevent misconnecting)? Did I tighten the speaker hold-down screws too much maybe? I am running the Kappa's using only the stock, non-JBL head unit. Maybe these speakers really need a quality aftermarket amp to sound good. Maybe the Camry's H/U is just terrible. With all the 5-stars that these Kappa's got here, I'm guessing that I did something wrong with the install. But it is a royal pain to remove and reinstall the rear deck speakers in Camry's, which is why I'm slow to investigate. Maybe the passive Infinity crossover interferes, and is robbing some of the power from the sound signal. Maybe I should get some less expensive, pulp cones that don't require so much power to run. If you're driving these speakers with a stock H/U, don't be overly surprised if you put these Kappa's in your car & they don't sound very good.

Great 6x9 speakers

stabbot from Raleigh nc on 4/11/2008

Put the speakers in my 1995 Impala SS. Very nice. Considering the application, they do exactly what is expected. Clear, clean with no distortion. Another bonus is the strong magnets, neodymium I think The weight is greatly reduced. As other reviewers have commented, they will need at least one sub help to complete the experience. I am currently driving them with the stock radio. I plan to get a new head unit in the next month, and may even get an amp for them to give them the proper muscle.

Excellent mids and highs, not much lows

yo from Minneapolis, MN on 3/9/2008

I have these kappa 6X9 and 6.5" component in my 99' accord for 4 years now. The sound is extreamly clear and life like. The highs are a bit bright, so my treble is set at 0db. The advantage of these speakers are the mids and highs, they can hit quite hard and clear, while minimizing distortion. But these speakers lack the low end. I guess at this level of audio, you can't expect one speaker to do everything. A subwoofer is necessary for this 6X9. This speaker is excellent for vocal jazz, rock, and Johnny Cash. But don't let me scare you, these are the best speakers I have ever heard, it's just that they have their own specialty. If you just want a all together package without the added subwoofer, try the Infinity referece 6X9. I had those in my past accord coupe, and they sound like there was a subwoofer in the trunk and they can handle good amount of amp power. If I can do it all over again, I would go with Infinity reference 6X9 in the rear, and kappa 6.5" in front.

These speaker sound great with factory radio in my 2007 Jeep Patriot. Very crisp and detailed sound at all volume levels. Bought 2 for the rear doors, but ended up installing them in the front doors. * If you install the bottom mount rings (spacers ) on the back side with screws that are 1/2 longer, they will fit in the front doors with out interferes from window or factory grill.* With out the spacers the magnet interferes the window. Looking forward to hooking them up to my amp. I will definitely be buying another set for the back doors.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have a pair of 6x9 and a pair of 4x6 kappas and im powering them with a 4 channel 100 watt alpine amp (i lowered the gain on the 4x6) and they sound amazing. the 6x9s can produce a lot of bass for a speaker wich can sometimes make the music sound just a little distorted so i lowered the amount of bass they produce trough the alpine car deck and the results were a loud cristal clear sound with just the right amount of bass to lightly rattle ur rear view mirror that is untill i turn ont the subs but thats a different review altoghether. i would and have sugested these speakers to anybody and everybody and dont skimp out do it trough crutchfield they have great customer service and believe me ull thank me later.

Best 6 by 9's ever

jbudd21 from Sacramento, CA on 1/21/2008

I got theese speakers, and they are amazing. Right now I am only powering them with a 22 watt RMS pioneer HU. However tonight i plan to order an infinity 4 channel amp that will give them 90 watts RMS. I can not wait to hear what they sound like with some true power and clarity from the amp running through them. As i said in the title that these are truely the best 6 by 9's that I have ever heard in my life, the bass that these speakers put out is mind-blowing. My rearview mirror fell off with only 22 watts running to them. Infinity has always been a top-runner, and once again they definitely delivered with theese.

Pros:

Cons:

Give them enough power

Bill from Marquette, MI on 1/10/2008

These are some good sounding speakers. I am only sending them 50watts right now and they lack the bass response i expected. I did hook them up just to test how different they sounded with 100 watts to them and the sound is a lot better. The highs and most of the mid don't really suffer with the lower watts but the bass def needs the full RMS watts.

Outstanding Sound

Doug from Cincinnati, OH on 12/1/2007

2003 Dodge Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed these in the doors of my Dodge Ram Pickup. I'm temporarily just running them off the factory head unit, but the sound is really good. I quickly switched the speakers to the flat setting as they were way too harsh in the +3dB setting. After adding a set of 3 1/2 inch Infinity 3012s in the open holes in the dash along with the high-pass capacitor Crutchfield provided, the sound is nothing short of spectacular. I disconnected the rear factory 5 1/4 inches and connected the dash speakers instead. They compliment one another marvelously, with detailed, smooth sound across the musical spectrum. Bass is very solid, reaching really low without the mid-bass boom common to many car 6 x 9 speakers. Some people may actually miss that. I have put aftermarket sound systems in almost every vehicle I have owned over the last 35 years and these are the best, most natural sounding speakers I have ever heard in an automobile. In fact, if it were not for the fact that I want to get HD radio and iPod connectivity, I would probably just add an amp and be done.

Amazing

johnathan from Louisville, KY on 6/14/2007

these speakers are amazing, my girlfriend have given them to me, and i had them off of my head unit originaly, and i was upset, but i then bought a sony X-PLOD amp that is rated at 600 watts, and put the speakers on there, and needless to say i was very pleased.<BR>so i am now running 6 12's and 8 of the infinty 6x9's and the sound quality is amazing, i do not really care for the amount of bass out of the speakers, but thats what subs are for.<BR>so i have tweaked the speakers for nothing but treble, and that sound is crazy!!!<BR>i would recomend that you invest in the speakers

Todd from Dark Star, Colorado on 1/23/2007

I put these in a 2004 Dodge 1500 quad (front doors). Yeah, I made them fit but the opening in the Dodge really isn't designed for upgrading the speakers, very small.<BR><BR>Now, to the speakers. Fantastic sound. VERY clear and precise highs, excellent midrange and good bass (for a multi-driver speaker). I have 6012si in the back and they sound very good together (I was worried about mixing the Kappa and Reference series, don't worry). I spent the day listening to Led Zepplin remasters; just amazing.

kappa 693.7i

brad from Ohio on 11/27/2006

Hands down the best car speakers I have ever heard (up there w/ Boston components)! Was powering them w/ 27 W/ch RMS HU amp (don't do this - 2-ohm loads), soon w/ 55 W/ch. Of course bass response depends on the placement/vehicle/cavity behind them, but in my MINI, they sound phenomenal. Bass is very strong, consistent w/ the large magnets. Highs are crisp and not overbearing; you can adjust the tweeter loudness +-3db depending on your amplification setup. Hard to beat in a 6x9!

Tyler from Buffalo, NY on 11/26/2006

wow, thats the first thing i have to say, secondly, when the people i had listen to my stereo, the first question they asked is, what kind of subs do u have? that goes to show u how much bass these babies put out, i have no subs by the way, but i am amplifying these with that 4 channel reference amp thats 110wx4 channels, but yeah, deffinitly a great buy, the speaker grilles rattle a bit, i thought i blew out my one speaker the first day i got em, but i puned the grille back on and it sounds great

Oli from Washington on 10/29/2006

I bought these speakers a couple of weeks ago and I just installed them in my Corrado. These sound so nice. I have them installed in some 6x9 speaker boxes and have them in my trunk. I have them hooked up to a Profile amp thats like 125watts x4 at 2ohms so its giving the speakers full rms power. These almost sound like a sub in the back! I had to figure out how to have the best setting in my alpine deck to have them sounding good. <BR>Only thing is..these are so loud they make parts of my car rattle so Im gonna need some dynamat for trunk at least. I recommend these!!

Erik from Schererville, IN on 10/17/2006

I replaced a pair of Alpine Type-R 6x9's with these. The bass is not as deep, but the overall sound is much more crisp. I'm running these off an Alpine MRP-F450 amp which is rated at 140 watts X 4 at 2 ohms. With the gain turned all the way down I'm very happy with the overall sound; however, when the weather gets cold, the power handling of these speakers dramatically lowers. I would recommend these to anyone, but make sure you let your car warm up before you crank up the volume. This is the only reason I didn't give the speakers a perfect score.

Kappas are the best!

Michael from Rogers, Arkansas on 8/31/2006

I've owned many different pairs of Infinity car speakers, as well as other brands, over the past 15 years and have used them in many different vehicles and configurations. I've been most pleased with the sound and durability of all Infinity car speakers in all the different configurations. The 3 way Kappas are the best so far. The only negative is in some vehicles the bass volume is not adequate. I suggest crossing them over to a high quality sub. at around 80 HZ. if you need hard hitting bass. The mids. and highs are brilliant, lifelike and with most types of music very real sounding. I highly recommend Infinity Speakers and I've purchased many of them from Crutchfield and have ALWAYS received GREAT service. Happy listening!

Daddy'Z from Marysville, WA on 7/15/2006

I got them and they are VERY VERY nice speakers indeed. I paired these with a new Alpine CDA-9857 and WOW what beautiful clean crisp sound!!!

RichGCPW from Camarillo, California on 2/4/2006

These speakers provide the crispness and bass that almost compares to a mid level componet system. They absoutely rock.. powered by a Alpine head unit and Alpine MRV-F340 amp.. they simply sound great. The key to these speakers is making sure they have quality power driving them. I would highly recommend these to anyone that does not have the right application to install a 300-400.00 componet system, as they are worth every dollar spent.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these speakers in October along with the reccomended Infinity Reference 7541a Amplifier (crutchfield agent reccomended). The highs are crisp and sound great but the lows are terrible. They always sound distorted with any type of real volume no matter how I tune the amp. I am disappointed as these were supposed to add a quality amount of bass to my system. I should have kept the Kicker 05KS69 6"x9" 2-Way Speakers I bought prior to these. I would NOT reccomend these speakers. If I hadn't waited so long to install them I would have returned them for a different set.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers are definetly high quality. I'm running them off a Pioneer 7700MP (22 wats RMS) for now and they sound very crisp. I'l probably choose an amp with at least 75 watts RMS. Only reason I rated them at a 4 is do to the fact I had to trim some sheet metal off my front doors AND use the bottom mount brackets to get them to fit. These speakers have a very wide frame. But they did clear my door panels.

Couldn't be happier

Ian from Philadelphia, PA on 10/15/2005

I actually own a pair of the 693.3i's that I bought back in 2001. These speakers just don't quit. I convinced a friend to get a pair of these 693.7i's and realized that compared to his new speakers my 4 year old speakers' sound quality hasn't diminished after over 1200 days of 1 hour each way commutes. Power these properly and you'll be in for seat thumping bass and precise sound rendering for years and years. If mine ever wear out I would definitely buy another pair. They ROCK!

nickoman01 from Northville, Michigan on 8/26/2005

I bought these speakers to replace the Polk Audio db690 i was using in my 02' Dodge Intrepid. These things are awesome. They hit pretty hard for not being subs. You can feel the bass as well as watch it distort your mirrors. They have an option of enhancing the higher sounds by 3 decibels which I choose not to use because it sounds too loud. The included crossover does a very good job of sorting the noises from my headunit. I have'nt put an amp on it yet, but that is on my to-do list. Overall I would highly recommend buying these.

I replaced factory 6 x 9's in my rear deck(2000 impala ls)they are beyond what I expected. These speakers are great at handling the power of my kicker amp(4 x70 rms + 1 x 200 for the sub)5 channel amp.NO distortion at high levels. JUST GREAT!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The kappas are awesome. I put in an alpine head unit in my convertible that kicks 18 rms 50 peak and the speakers sound awesome. The crossovers really work well. I am just trying to figure what amp I am going to hook up to the speakers, because their rms is 110 with a 330 peak.

Features

Plus One Woven-Glass-Fiber Woofer Cones: The Plus One speakers use cones approximately 30% larger than other speakers of the same size. This is accomplished by using a new basket design and hi-roll surround. The Plus One design offers greater bass output and a significant increase in efficiency. The woven-glass-fiber material is very light and extremely stiff, minimizing cone flex. This results in very low distortion and improved clarity.

Motor Structure: The new Kappas use a Neodymium motor structure with an integrated heat sink. This design provides a massive amount of energy while minimizing mounting depth and magnet diameter. The integrated heat sink cools the motor structure efficiently, thus increasing power handling while reducing distortion.

Emit Tweeter and MMD Dome Midrange: Each speaker has an Emit tweeter and an MMD (Metal Matrix Diaphragm) dome midrange. The benefit is increased power handling and reduced distortion at high output. This technology also allows for better integration with the woofer. The tweeter has an adjustable output level, +0 dB (flat) and +3 dB.

SLI High-Output Design: This high output 2 ohm design extracts every watt from today's high powered receivers and amplifiers, increasing overall system output and efficiency (relative to 4 ohm speakers).

Crossovers: Kappa speakers include computer-optimized, voice-matched crossovers, using audiophile quality air core inductors and polypropylene capacitors.

Crossover Connections: Each crossover has a 12" input lead terminated with bare wire and two 19" output leads, one for the woofer and one for the tweeters, terminated with female quick-slides. The female quick-slides connect to the male quick-slides on the speaker. The positive terminal on the woofer input is 0.248" and the negative is 0.191". The positive terminal on the tweeter input is 0.205" and the negative is 0.111".

Crossover Dimensions: L=4.265", W=2.076", H=1.215"

Bottom Mount: Spacer rings are included to use when bottom mounting the speakers. The rings add about half an inch to the flange height.
