Overview

Our take on the Kenwood KFC-1679ie

Treat your ears to a fuller, richer soundstage! Kenwood has adapted anti-diffraction home speaker technology to their Image Enhancer series car speakers. A smooth, domed ring around the PEI balanced dome tweeter virtually eliminates "bounce back" — reflected sound waves that interfere with direct sound coming from the tweeter itself. The result is wider "sweet spot" dispersion and more accurate mids and highs.

Treat your ears to a fuller, richer soundstage! Kenwood has adapted anti-diffraction home speaker technology to their Image Enhancer series car speakers. A smooth, domed ring around the PEI balanced dome tweeter virtually eliminates "bounce back" — reflected sound waves that interfere with direct sound coming from the tweeter itself. The result is wider "sweet spot" dispersion and more accurate mids and highs.

The KFC-1679ie knocks out satisfying bass from a 6-1/2" pearl-mica injection-molded poly woofer. The KFC-1679ie also has mounting tabs for oversized 6-3/4" applications.

Features

Image Enhancer: The KFC-1679ie is equipped with Kenwood's patented Image Enhancer 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. 

Woofers: The woofer cones are silver Pearl Mica Injection-Molded Polypropylene. Uniform pearl mica crystals form an overlapping structure that adds strength and heat resistance to polypropylene; the result is reduced distortion and improved reliability.

Tweeters: The speakers have a 1-3/16" PEI balanced dome tweeter. A semi-dome tweeter has a dome placed inside a cone. "Balanced dome" tweeters are semi-dome tweeters with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the tweeter.

Surrounds: The speakers have a urethane surround.

Grilles: The supplied hard plastic grilles have a unique 3-spoke design with a cutout for the Image Enhancer.

Mounting: The speakers can be mounted in a 6-1/2" opening, or, using the four mounting tabs, the speakers can be mounted in a 6-3/4" opening.
