Rockford Fosgate R1693
Released April, 2010
The Pros:Bass is tight and sharp without being overly loud. Vocals are rich and detailed, very satisfying. Highs are clear without being tinny, no distortion at higher volumes.
The Cons:Don't generate the loud thump of dedicated subwoofers. Audiophiles may notice a slightly mechanical sound from the plastic cones. A little over-balanced for the high end, need to be paired with something that supports low-end exclusively.
The Rockford Fosgate R1693 is a single 6”x9”, 3-way coaxially designed speaker designed as a factory replacement speaker. Designed to provide ample bass and precise highs at a budget-friendly price, the R1692 houses a single 6x9 mica injected polypropylene cone, a single ½” Mylar balanced dome tweeter, and a in-line crossover network.

Together they can handle up to 120W of power across a 48Hz-22kHz frequency range. Critics say the Rockford Fosgate R1693 is perfect for users short on cash, but still concerned with how a speaker sounds. It’s not premium in quality (a few mid-range frequencies are missing), but it’s tight and crisp.
