Designed as an easily installed premium upgrade, the GS693 includes a proprietary injection-molded ABS and fiberglass vented basket shallow enough to fit factory door locations when necessary. 1” (25mm) and 3/4“ (20mm) fabric dome tweeters are mounted in a low profile housing designed to fit easily under factory grilles.

The tweeter faceplate includes waveguides designed to boost the tweeters’ low frequencies and ensure a smooth transition to the midrange. That transition is also controlled by a 12dB/octave high pass filter and 6dB/octave low pass filter.

The entire crossover network is mounted to a PC board integrated into the basket, which also secures the terminals. The GS693 woofer includes a 1” copper voice coil wound on a Kapton® former for superior power handling.
