Rockford Fosgate Prime R1693
6" x 9" 3-way car speakers
Our take on the Rockford Fosgate Prime R1693 by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
Put Rockford Fosgate sound in your car without breaking the bank. Whether you're building your first system or replacing some burned-out factory speakers, Prime speakers offer clean, powerful performance that'll keep you and your friends entertained as you drive.
The Prime R1693 6" x 9" 3-way speakers sport stiff mica-injected polypropylene woofer cones that deliver strong drums and bass, along with clean reproduction of the lower midrange frequencies. Mylar drivers broadcast the midrange information that adds realism to the vocals and instruments. Mylar dome tweeters bring out the high-frequency details that make your music sound more lively. Built-in crossover networks ensure smooth audio response, so all your music plays faithfully.
Priced per pair
I like these speakers in the rear deck of my Olds. Good full sound with plenty of bass for me. 3 years old know and i like them.
