**6691 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **6691edo** or **6691ed2**), also called **6691-tone equal temperament** (**6691tet**) or **6691 equal temperament** (**6691et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 6691 equal parts of about 0.179 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/6691}, or the 6691st root of 2.

6691edo is a very strong 11-limit system, with a lower 11-limit relative error than any smaller division until 40006. It is also strong in the 7-limit, where only 3125 is both smaller and with a lesser relative error.

We may note it is a euzenius and parimic system. A basis for the 11-limit commas is {1771561/1771470, 3294225/3294172, 67110351/67108864, 78125000/78121827} and for the 7-limit commas, {78125000/78121827, [-48 0 11 8⟩, [4 -28 -8 21⟩}.

The approximation to harmonic 13 is weaker, though it is still consistent to the 15-odd-limit. In fact, it is consistent to the no-13 or no-17 no-23 29-odd-limit. In the 13-limit we may note it tempers out 10648/10647, and is a good tuning for the corresponding rank-5 temperament. It also tempers out 140625/140608. In the 17-limit, 194481/194480; in the 19-limit, 14080/14079, 23409/23408, 43681/43680, 89376/89375, 165376/165375; and in the 23-limit, 21505/21504, 23276/23275, 25921/25920, 52326/52325, 76545/76544 among others.
