The Rockford Fosgate Power series is the finest in audiophile grade sound. Since the original introduction of the Power series, Rockford raised the bar for high-end car audio products. The most recent Power speakers integrate unique Rockford Fosgate technology and advanced engineering that result in the best Power sound to date. The patent pending VAST surround provides a larger surface area for the cone. Vast, or Vertical Attach Surround Technique gives about 25% more effect radiating cone, which improves both the efficiency and maximum output capabilities. The new flexfit basket utilizes holes and slots as opposed to the traditional speaker mounting holes. This gives the speakers an easier fit into OEM opening, as well as a secure fit.

To separate the mid and high frequencies, Rockford uses an Integrated Concealed Crossover, or an ICC. The ICC hides in the basket of the woofer and is not visible. The result is a simpler installation, while preserving incredible sound. The full-range coaxial speakers also feature an offset mounted tweeter. The Offset Cantilever Coaxial Mounted Tweeter removes any frequency response abnormalities due to acoustic reflection between the woofer and the tweeter.

Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Power (Rockford Fosgate)
Priced Per
Car Speakers are typically sold in pairs so you will receive 2 speakers for each speaker purchase on speakers marked "Priced Per Pair". If a speaker is marked "Priced Per Each" then the speaker is sold individually and each purchase you make will result in 1 speaker. High-powered tweeters, midrange and full-range pro audio for car speakers are typically sold per each speaker.
Pair
Speaker Size
Refers to the size of the speaker measured in inches. Every vehicle has standard application sizes. Please use our vehicle fitment guide for your vehicle's specific speaker sizes if you do not know them.
6" x 9"
Design
The number of individual drivers in a car speaker. Speakers with 2 drivers are known as a 2-way, and 3 drivers are known as a 3-way. Component systems are often referred to as "separates" because the tweeter is not attached to the midwoofer (main speaker driver) and mounts separately in a location such as a door post. Component systems typically come with an external crossover so you can easily adjust the high and low frequencies sent to both the midwoofer and the tweeter. Center channel speakers are great for those looking to have surround sound in their vehicle.
3-way
Tweeter Design
Designs such as cone, dome, semi-dome, balanced dome, and whizzer are most popular. Cone tweeters are simple, efficient and typically are the most reasonably priced. Dome tweeters are used in most home speakers, and provide a smoother and more accurate sound. Semi-dome design is one with a dome placed inside a cone. A Balanced dome driver is a semi-dome with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the driver. A whizzer tweeter is a separate tweeter cone driven by the voice coil of the woofer.
Dome
Tweeter Composition
Materials such as polypropylene, silk, cloth, and paper are the most common, where as many more recent tweeters are now manufactured with composites such as Aluminum, Titanium, Mylar, and other materials.

PEI is an acronym for "Polyetherimide" which is an amorphous, amber transparent, high-performance thermoplastic.

Aluminum
Woofer Composition
Lightweight woofer cone materials are essential for efficient operation. Poly cones produce exceptional sound and are sturdy against various changes in temperature. Paper cones are very efficient, and when treated for moisture resistance, will perform at a high level. Poly refers to polypropylene, which is thermoplastic or fibers that are polymers of propylene. IMPP refers to injection molded polypropylene, a commonly used process and material in speakers.
Polypropylene-Carbon Fiber Hybrid
Woofer Surround
A speakers surround is part of the suspension system. The surround protects the cone and prevents it from being displaced as it flexes out from the basket. It is usually made of a durable material like treated foam or rubber in order to withstand the strenuous job of producing bass frequencies.
Butyl Rubber
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
200 watts
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
100 watts
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
90 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
50 - 22,000 Hz
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
4 ohms
Top-Mount Depth
The depth when installed on top of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the bottom of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
3-1/2"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5-3/4" x 8-1/2" 
Speaker Grilles
A grating or screen of metal or plastic bars or wires, mounted in front of a speaker as protection. If yes, the speakers will include matching speaker grilles. If no, there are no grilles included.
Yes

Very Loud

December 4, 2013

These are great 6x9's for the price. They are very loud and clear. I had them on the rear deck of an 01' VW Jetta along with a pair of RF P3 12's in the trunk. They can handle more power than they're rated at. Good buy.

Great set of speakers!

September 17, 2013

Installed these in my '98 Cirrus rear deck. Had them installed running on my headunit, and before my subs were working properly, and they were kicking enough bass that it sounded like a solid 10 was bumping back there. The high are very clean, and I now have the doors (T1675's) and decks running one a dedicated amp.

June 13, 2013

When I bought this new dodge I had no idea which way to go with it so I called the guys at sonic electronix and they asked a few quetions and gave me three options and low and behold Rockford was at the top so I got them, put them in just as I would have 22 years ago when I was on the competition circuit and these things sounded like 500 dollar speakers all day long and I only had a 4 channel alpine amp on them so if you want to keep up with a giant sub or just want some great sound THESE ARE FOR YOU

Not Disappointed

April 21, 2013

Opening this box I was already pleased, another great design from Rockford Fosgate. Hooked them up in my rear dash of 2011 Dodge Charger, running them off T-400.4 & I don't even need to buy any tweeters or front door speakers. I currently have RF 132 in front dash & stock speakers in front door & im honestly pleased. Clarity is superb & it doesn't scream, just get them.

Wicked Purchase

February 12, 2013

A coworker purchased these speakers for 99.95 from sonic and we were blown away by the perfromance over the infinity refrences that had made home in his car. The mounting depth was a bit of an issue in the rear deck but some spacers fixed that right up with no problem. Played well past its RMS rating although a little shy on mid bass. Overall good purchase on his part and would reccomend them myself.

Nice speaker

November 27, 2012

I have these in the rear shelf of my civic paired with T1652-s in the front doors. Running them with a p400-4 with a birth sheet of 76 rms. Love them! Nice crisp mid and sharp highs. They do get alittle bright when cranked to stupid loud volume but at loud to normal levels the are so sweet. You will be able to pick out things in music that you never noticed before, they are that good. I have been hammering these for over a year and they sound even better! I am a huge RF fan, get a set of these and you will be too! Sonic rules!

November 20, 2012

I purchased a set of these about two months ago from Sonic and they live up to all the reviews. These speakers absolutely scream highs and mids and are extremely crisp and clear even when maxed. I'm powering them with an alpine 500w class D monoblock and they can take power all day long. If your unsure about what 6x9's you want to buy GET THESE and you wont be disappointed.

Rockford Fosgate Power T1693

September 17, 2012

I purchased these speakers for the rear deck in my accord. These speakers are alright, but they don't have a lot of output, if you want more vocal output I would recommend using 6.5" Components. I am giving them plenty of power with a RF T600-4.

You can't go wrong with these 6x9's. They can take power all day, and they sound loud and clear. I know they say 100 watts rms but they can take at least 200 watts rms a piece. The magnets are huge! Biggest magnets I've seen on 6x9's. Before I sold my car, I took the speakers out sold them to a friend and they sounded even louder in his car.

Great 6x9 speakers

May 15, 2012

I bought these Rockford 6x9 T1693, and these speakers are hands down the best 6x9 speakers I have heard! The bass is impressive no matter what music you listen to, I listen to all kinds of music and these speakers handle it with ease. I have my speakers hooked up to a decent aftermarket radio, I doubt they'll sound this good if you hook up to factory stereo

Great Sound, Good RMS.

May 1, 2012

First of all, not many people put what car they have, so I will. I have a 2005 Chevy Cavalier Sport LS Edition. These 6x9's WILL fit in the back, but the installer had to shave some metal off of the mounting because they were a little big. He did that for me at no extra charge because it wasn't a big deal. These speakers are LOUD with good highs, and mids. Bass lacks a little, but it's a speaker, not a sub. I love these. 100 rms a piece is awesome.
