Our take on the Kenwood KFC-1693PS by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
Kenwood's Performance Series speakers deliver the full range of your music with their multi-driver designs. The woofer cone features a Diamond Array pattern that increases the strength of its surface, improving bass response as well as reducing internal vibrations and other distortions. Kenwood's Image Enhancer 4 directs the sound emanating from the midrange drivers and tweeters, blending their signals to give a clean, well-defined focus to your musical soundstage. You'll hear smoother vocals, wider "sweet spot" dispersion, and less distortion.
The KFC-1693PS 6-1/2" 3-way speakers employ polypropylene woofer cones to reproduce your lower frequencies with accuracy and strength. The treated urethane foam surround resists weathering and provides reliable support that keeps your music playing, no matter what. A water-resistant paper cone midrange and a flat ceramic tweeter take care of the upper frequencies to complete the all-round coverage that lets your music stretch out and come alive.
Priced per pair
Just replacing facory speakers right now. Plan to put some amp power to them in the future. They sound pretty great with the factory system right now.

Image Enhancer: The KFC-1693PS is equipped with Kenwood's Image Enhancer 4 surrounding the tweeters. Its smooth rounded surface eliminates most of the reflected sound waves that would interfere with the direct sound waves coming from the tweeters. The end result is a better dispersion pattern, less distortion, and clear high-frequency reproduction.
Cone Woofers: The woofer cones are textured Polypropylene with foam surrounds. Polypropylene woofers are resistant to moisture and temperature extremes found in automotive applications.
Tweeters: Each speaker has a 1-9/16" cone tweeter and a 1/2" ceramic, flat super-tweeter for added high frequency reproduction.
Applications: The Kenwood KFC-1693PS can be used in standard 3-hole 6-1/2 installations, 4-hole 6-1/2 installations (common in Fords), and 6-3/4 installations.
