Focal Integration ISS 690

s.e.o., Crutchfield
6 February 2014
  • Summary: Installed in front doors of a 2005 Toyota 4-Runner (non-JBL). Running off a Pioneer AVH-P3100DVD Head Unit (4 x 14w RMS). Still running stock rear door speakers. No amp. Had custom brackets fabricated for the 6x9 with foam rims to align with the stock foam on the door panel. Also went with inner & outer sound deadening on the front doors.
  • Pros: ... Kenwood, Pioneer coax 6x9s and these were in another league. Hertz was similar, but had no component offering in 6x9. I refused to go with a 6.5" component because the 6x9 woofer just dominates the 6.5" in mid to mid-low output. The Pros: Crystal Clear, Highly Sensitive, Runs Great with Head Unit Only (look into properly sealing w/ sound deadening), Excellent Bass, Tight Response in Mid-Lows (I was hearing kick drum precision that I didn't even know existed).
  • Cons: Not really a con but likely requires amplification to open up the 10k Hz+ ranges at lower volumes. Again, not really a con and is solved with EQ and amplification - mid range seems to be the power house on the woofers.

Very clean and clear

Hill, Crutchfield
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Overall a great speaker. If you have a toyota with stock 6x9 speakers in the front, consider these. Whatever you do, DO NOT use the junk flat speaker adapters that Crutchfield and others try to provide. This will rob you of speaker depth, bass response, mid-bass and clarity. It is VERY easy to re-use the stock speaker brackets of your toyota or purchase brackets that are ~1.5" in depth and are made for your car.
  • Pros: Crystal clear speakers, great bass, great tweeters. Would work well even with aftermarket head unit power and really will with 50 watts and up. I would put the bass of these speakers over any 6.5" in this price range, and the mid-range clarity is excellent as long as you're not trying to have a full blown heavy metal concert in your car. These are meant for factory fit replacement of your 6x9 front speaker cars and they are great for that.
  • Cons: Ran out of words available to me above. The only real con is for me at least is I wish they would handle a little more power. But this is only a con to me, I wanted really really loud speakers that could take up to 200 watts each. For most everyone out there these are fantastic and you won't find any faults.
