Kenwood Excelon speakers incorporate technical know-how and advanced materials to give your music the full, rich sound it deserves. These full-range speakers sport a diamond-array pattern etched into their woofers that increases the strength of the carbon-polypropylene cone for improved dynamic response and lower distortion. The butyl rubber surround resists weathering, providing reliable support that keeps your music playing, no matter what.
Kenwood Excelon KFC-X693 6"x9" speakers feature 1" silk dome midrange drivers that combine with 3/4" balanced soft dome tweeters to paint a strong sonic image without ever sounding harsh. Because of their specially designed magnetic circuitry and neodymium magnets, the compact midrange drivers use less steel in their construction, for more accurate response than conventional drivers.

Sounds great, very good quality for the money.
Fit great in back deck of my 69 GTO. Sound is superb behind the redondo retrosound radio.
Pros: Great speakers. Really like Kenwood products and these perform just like I expected!
Wow.. I'm beyond impressed with these speakers!! The sound they produce is crystal clear and the bass is just right for what I was wanting. I thought they wouldn't get along with my old Pioneer head unit, but they do, and I couldn't be happier! Installation was pretty easy because of the Master Sheet provided by Crutchfield (a true life-saver). I bought these as a replacement for the old stock Toyota speakers that were blown when I purchased the car, and I must say it was a great decision. I would recommend these to anyone wanting to replace their old speakers. You won't regret it!
Pros: Great sound Just-right Bass
We had a couple of issue installing the speakers and had to call the help line more than once. The staff was excellent and very helpful. We got the speakers installed and everything works great. We will definitely use this company again and recommend them. Keep up the great work. So helpful!!!
Sound great in my 1956 Cadillac, got them fast. Crutchfield is the greatest!
These kenwood excelon 6x9 three way speakers have the potential to turn your car into a stadium. Despite having less midrange clarity due to having two tweeters, the speakers make up for it with powerful, driving lows, and crisp highs. My 6x9' rear deck speakersare paired with Kenwood 1665 6 1/2" door speakers, and are powered with a hifonics zeus 1400 watt amp.
Pros: Crisp, clean, soft bass Highs are clean
Cons: Wont sound as nice with factory or non-amplified systems. I reccommend purchasing an amp with an rms rating higher than the speakers.
These are very nice speakers... and they didn't break the bank. Firm bass response, the treble is very clear. I am only pushing 22 Watts with my head unit, but they are as loud as I care to listen. Major upgrade for my original paper cone speakers. Install: had to drill holes in the sheet metal under the dash. Once I accepted that fact, it was pretty easy. I tried to create a mounting bracket from the old speakers (not everything on Youtube is useful) and that was a fail.
Pros: Great response, great sound. Crutchfield included everything I needed.
Cons: Installation requires a few drill holes. No big deal.
Great sound. Excellent value.
Pros: Can't ask for a better deal. Great deal and great sound.
Cons: Can't think of any
Although a little tricky to install, because I had to play with the door frame support, These speakers had an overall easy installation. Playing with a little wire crimping because the factory speaker connectors were messed up, it was fairly simple. The sound quality is extremely clear and the bass is super strong. I paired these speakers up with my Kenwood KDC-162U Stereo.
Pros: -Amazing sound quality -Easy to install -Came with all the stuff I needed
Cons: -The terminals are a little flimsy and felt like they could easily break off.
These speakers are amazing. The range and sheer power will blow you away. I have mine installed in the rear doors of a 2014 Ram Quad Cab and they are being pushed by an Alpine PDR-V75. FYI...There's plenty of install room, no modifications needed for the rear doors.
Pros: Great range, highs are crisp, still very punchy, extremely clear with high power and lots of volume. Do not go with a smaller speaker or cheaper speaker. You won't regret it.
Cons: I am very very picky and I have none.
This speaker has great sound for my music taste, very clean and crisp with a proper amount of thump. Would recommend it for any replacement of a 6x9. Enjoy them.
Cons: The depth is something to overcome, however with proper spacing or flash mounting it was easy.
On the Crutchfield these speakers seemed like they'd be good. After my father-in-law installed them in his truck I was amazed with how well they sound at such a good price. Needless to say, he loves them and couldn't be more happier with them. Crutchfield, you rock!
I put replaced the factory speakers(rear doors) with a pair of these in my sons 2012 Frontier. I connect them to a new Kenwood DPX500BT. "They kick"dad!!(his words).
Pros: Easy to install
Awesome quality, sound and build.
Pros: Everything. These rock.
Excellent sound. Really don't need a sub unless you like super heavy bass. Complete package
Pros: Full range. Excellent sounding. Handles well at high and low outputs
Cons: Heavy. Had to reinforce. That's why I gave it 4 instead of 5
I purchased a sub with my system but I probably didn't need it. these thing kick. went into a 1989 Camaro IROC, the car is a weekend cruiser and now it has a kick butt system in it. Really like Kenwood
Pros: Awesome sound highs all the way through the range to big punchy lows
Cons: First set had a blown speaker but these guys took care of it and I could not be happier
I bought these speakers for my wife and her 'soccer Mom cruiser'. Speakers are matched with the Kenwood KFC-X173 6-3/4" speakers in the front doors, Kenwood DDX-470 head and Clarion XC1410 amp. I installed the speakers before adding the head and amp and gave them a try, what a difference over the factory speakers. Well worth the cost.
Pros: Excellent value and sound.
nice full sound, good range, worth the $.
Pros: nice sound
Cons: the speaker wires and metal tabs to connect the speaker wires are a little flimsy. I would have expected something more study from Kenwood.
Put a pair of these in Datsun 280Z rear because there's not a lot of options for locations. Have one of the vintage look head units for power. Sound quality is pretty darn good. Much better than anticipated.
Pros: Good deep sound, lot of speaker for the money.
Cons: None so far
Installing these replacements in a 1996 Volvo 960 (rear deck) and fading the sound system a few notches to the rear made even the older OEM speakers in front sound better. Far less trouble to install (but yes, the back seat does have to come out of this vehicle) than a full component set (involving doors and dash as well), and the rear deck only option provides really good sound across the entire range. The fit (using OEM factory grills) was perfect; maybe not such a big deal but I was impressed that Crutchfield knew that with the vehicle choice system on an older car, and said so. If I were considering an investment in speakers, I'd at least consider trying these alone at first.
Pros: Very clean sound across the range; suitability of fit for my application
I put these in my '76 Jeep CJ7. Two 6x9s and two 5 1/4's. I can finally hear my music with the top down on the freeway. The only gripe I have is the speaker wire that comes off of these speakers is so thin but I changed it out with some better quality stuff. To get the full potential of these speakers you have to have an amp. I power these with a 350 watt RMS 2 channel amp.

Midranges: Each speaker uses a 1" Silk soft dome midrange for smooth, precise vocals.
Warranty Note: Although these speakers come with a 1-year warranty card, they are covered by the Kenwood eXcelon 2-year warranty.
