About the Kenwood KFC-1689ie

Todd Cabell
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, less distortion, 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, less distortion, and more accurate mids and highs.

The KFC-1689ie 6-1/2" speaker features three drivers for finely detailed sound. A pearl-mica injection-molded poly woofer handles plenty of power, for lows that hit hard. In addition to the PEI balanced dome midrange, the durable PEI dome tweeter offers extensive high-frequency output to capture nuances often lost in 2-way designs. The KFC-1689ie also has mounting tabs for oversized 6-3/4" applications.

Features

Image Enhancer: The KFC-1689ie is equipped with Kenwood's patented Image Enhancer surrounding the midrange and tweeter. Its smooth rounded surface eliminates most of the reflected sound waves that would interfere with the direct sound waves coming from the midrange and tweeter. 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.

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

Tweeters: The speakers have a 3/8" PEI dome 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.
