Pure performance

How great do you feel about driving after running your ride through the car wash? With Kenwood's Performance Series speakers cleaning up your muddy factory sound, you'll get that feeling every time you start your engine. Kenwood has incorporated new technology into these speakers to give you the best sonic bang for your buck.

Enhanced sound

These KFC-1696PS 6-1/2" speakers rock a polypropylene cone with a diamond array pattern, which minimizes distortion, while a rubber surround ensures overall durability. All the musical details are handled by the balanced dome tweeter, and dispersion is improved by Kenwood's proprietary Sound Field Enhancer.

Kenwood's Acoustic Sound Harmonizer uses slots on the mount housing the tweeter to improve the transition to the higher frequencies, so you'll experience a smoother sound overall. Grilles are included for custom installations.

I think these might be better with an aftermarket head unit. I have my OE head unit and the EQ is very narrow with little rooms for adjustments.

Pros:

Pros: Fits great in my 2015 VW Jetta

Cons: Lacking Bass

The high sounds do not sound as good as I would have liked them too, and the bass is poor. Drum sounds make the speaker want to blow, and high note sound muffled.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Low sound Sounds like it wants to blow Very poor bass Makes my 19-year-old factory speakers sound good

Installed these on my 2017 Ford Focus ST. Fit great and added a ton of clarity to the muddy stock speakers. Need an aftermarket amplifier to really get full experience with respect to my vehicle in particular. That will be my next purchase.

Pros: Excellent clarity!

Cons: None

Features

Mounting: The KFC-1696PS will fit in in standard three-hole and four-hole 6½" applications. They can also be mounted in 6¾" applications, but because the extra screw holes create an air leak in the larger opening, speaker baffles should be used.
