Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Love the sound of these speakers. The bass sounds great for not having an amplifier hooked up which I will later do down the road so I know they will sounds outstanding.

Pros: Nothing but good things.

Cons: I have no cons other than is you have a 2013 Ford F-150 platinum like myself just know that the front door speakers are the same as the rear speakers. On this site it says they are different so I went ahead and got what the recommended and turns out that you could fit the same size front speakers in the rear. That's about it.

I have a pair of these in a Freightliner Cascadia who's a semi truck for about three and a half years I play them a average of 6 to 10 hours a day when I'm out on the road and they're still rolling strong. the sound quality is nice I have it hooked up to a JL HD 900 / 5 amp and a Kenwood media player it delivers good bass but my doors can't handle it so I had to to tune the frequency on my amp to take out the bass the highs and mids are nice also

Pros: Good sound quality and good bass

Cons: Price :when I got them before the price drop

Sound better than factory speakers but I'm not blown away

R from Philadelphia, PA on 6/1/2017

2016 Jeep Wrangler

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought two pair of these and installed them in my 2016 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. The install instructions were good but it's a major hassle to get the dash speakers removed and installed (and I have a lot of tools). The speakers sound better than the factory speakers, but I'm not happy with the bass. I tried installing polyfill in the areas around the speakers but that didn't make much of a difference. I am using these speakers with the factory installed head unit, so that may make a difference. Also - the sound quality depends on the source. If I play digital files from a USB drive the sound is better than it is with Sirius radio.

Pros: Price

Cons: Bass is off

Marc from Pleasantville, NY on 2/12/2017

2016 Ram 1500

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

All though the speakers are good and they fit. The stock uconnect radio without a factory amplifier turns out to much high and mid range frequencies. I had to turn down the mids and the highs completely. Stock radio also does not put out enough bass. So when you update your speakers on a stock 6 speakers 2016 RAM 1500 be prepared to go a step further.

Pros: easy fit and installation.

Cons: Stock radio under performs with these speakers.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have had these for a few weeks now. I installed them in my '98 GMC Sierra and with the included mounting brackets, installation was a breeze. This was my first step in upgrading my truck audio system. After removing my OEM head unit and installing an aftermarket unit, it pushed these speakers to an absolutely astonishing new level. I am very impressed the high/low tones as well as the bass. On a different note, Crutchfield had my package to me a day earlier than expected. I am very impressed and satisfied and will be visiting Crutchfield again.

Pros: Sound quality and price.

Cons: Rattles truck from bass. (Also a good thing)

About as good as a coaxial can get. Only reason this is a 4 star review instead of 5 is that, call me crazy, but I can hear the sound wave interference between the woofer and tweeter at loud volumes. This is a common problem with coaxial speakers. Separate components fixes this, but then there's the problem of where to put the tweeter... Independently, the woofer and tweeter sound great!

Pros: Good speaker!

Cons: It's a coaxial.

Sound amazing

Keith from Hilliard, OH on 5/30/2016

2015 Subaru Forester

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I really like these speakers. They play much louder than I can stand and are distortion-free. The only thing to note is in the spec section. They list the wattage at 15-100 RMS. The box that the speakers are packaged in says 60 W RMS with an amp suggestion of 15-100 W. So just know that these are not really 100 W speakers. I have them connected to an MTX Thunder 75.4 and only have the gain set at about 2/3 and they sound amazing.

Pros:

Cons:

Crutchfield response on 6/7/2016
JL Audio lists two power figures in the manual; 60 watts continuous power handling and recommended amp power 15-100 watts RMS. We've listed the RMS power recommendation in the specs table.

This was a "modifies fit" but it took all of 2 min to get a nice fit, the sound is crisp and clear, and has fantastic output for such a small speaker, It could easily be powered by an amp to give it more punch

Pros: Clean sound, rms to spare, BIG sound from a small speaker, well worth the asking price!

2014 Jeep Wrangler

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Swapped out the stock speakers in my 2014 Jeep wrangler Sport. The stock speakers were 6 1/2 " but Crutchfield recommended the 5 1/4" speakers with the adapter kit. I wanted a quick swap out without a lot of fuss and thats what I got. I couldn't get the holes in the adapter bracket to line up with the speakers so I had to drill new holes in the plastic bracket. No big deal. Once I did that, I attached the wire/plug adapter and then mounted the speaker to the bracket/speaker box. Done. all was left to do was to reinstall the speaker back into the Jeep. Instructions to do all of this came in an email download from Crutchfield. Total time for the whole swap out was 30 mins. Speakers sound great I can really hear the difference from the stock speakers. I am planning on adding an amp that will install in the dash behind the radio in the future.

Pros: a good quality speaker, good directions, easy upgrade for the do-it-yourselfer

Cons:

Great

Jordan from Amarillo, TX on 2/8/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased these speakers for my car from a local store called Sound Systems LTD. The only difference is that I bought the 6 1/2 inch speakers. I originally planned to buy the component system because I blew my factory tweeters and currently have none. But I realized I wasn't going to be able to afford the component speakers and higher installation fee at the time. So I went with the coaxial instead. First off, I am incredibly pleased by the clarity and detail of these speakers. They were well worth the purchase price. I have two 12 inch subwoofers in my trunk, so I keep the bass on my deck turned all the way down. But I have turned my subwoofers off and turned my bass all the way back up. Considering that I'm still running these off my factory deck, they hit pretty hard. I wouldn't recommend listening to these with the bass turned up all the time, as the life will decrease significantly. These speakers get really loud, again considering that I haven't replaced my stereo unit. I am over all extremely pleased with this purchase. It has been 6 months since installing these in my doors and I constantly get compliments on how great my system sounds. Not to mention the way my car is designed, the soundstage with these speakers is quite amazing. I can only imagine what the next product in the series could do. I will be selling these at some point this year, but only because I am upgrading to the C3 speakers most likely. Absolutely worth the price!!

Pros: Clarity, Detail, Price, Ease of Installation, Volume, Bass Response, Treble Clarity, Superb Soundstage.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Upgraded all 4 door speakers in my Suburban to these and couldn't be happier. All the missing mids and highs come through crystal clear. JL Audio has done it again!!

Wayyyy better than Type Rs

I just got a new car (98 Toyota Avalon XLS) and I've been going all out as I've started from scratch with my audio system. These speakers are wayyy better than the 6.75" Alpine Type Rs I had in my old car. The magnet is huge and the bass is unbelievable, this is matched equally by the not-to-harsh treble. They seem to be built tough with a rubber protector on the magnet and an incredibly solid feel. This was my first time experiencing JL Audio and I must say, it wont be my last.

Features

Woofers: The JL Audio Evolution C2-525x coaxial speakers feature a 5¼" injection-molded, mica-filled polypropylene cone woofer with a butyl rubber surround. The woofer has a 1" voice coil on a Kapton Former, a symmetrical roll spider and a Ferrite magnet. These carefully engineered cones deliver the right combination of stiffness, damping, and off-axis response. The speaker also provides adequate bass, thanks to its ample mechanical clearance, optimized suspension and balanced motor design.

Tweeters: Each coaxial speaker features a ¾" silk dome, ferrofluid-cooled tweeter with a damping neodymium magnet. The edge-driven silk dome tweeter is smooth, detailed (on or off axis), and provides great overall performance. Silk is lightweight and great for high frequency extension and efficiency. It is also designed for durability in the extreme automotive environment.

Grilles: Front-loading protective grilles are included, with black steel mesh and satin silver accents. Electroformed logo nameplates can be positioned on the grilles or elsewhere in the vehicle, according to the needs of the installation.

Power Handling: JL Audio publishes several power specifications for this speaker, 60 watts continuous power handling (RMS), 225 watts peak music power, and 15-100 watts recommended amplifier power (RMS). We've listed the conservative combination of 15-60 watts RMS in the specs table.

Q
Are thise water resistance?

Hi, I would say they are moisture resistant due to the poly construction. If you want a good water resistant speaker I would go with the marine application. Either one will not disappoint . I put the set you are asking about in the doors on a GMC truck. But I also have a set of the marine speaker in my motorcycle fairing. Both the same size. Also the folks at Crutchfield won't steer you wrong. Good listening Brian
