Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Power (JBL)
Priced Per
Car Speakers are typically sold in pairs so you will receive 2 speakers for each speaker purchase on speakers marked "Priced Per Pair". If a speaker is marked "Priced Per Each" then the speaker is sold individually and each purchase you make will result in 1 speaker. High-powered tweeters, midrange and full-range pro audio for car speakers are typically sold per each speaker.
Pair
Speaker Size
Refers to the size of the speaker measured in inches. Every vehicle has standard application sizes. Please use our vehicle fitment guide for your vehicle's specific speaker sizes if you do not know them.
6" x 8" (also mounts in most 5" x 7" locations)
Design
The number of individual drivers in a car speaker. Speakers with 2 drivers are known as a 2-way, and 3 drivers are known as a 3-way. Component systems are often referred to as "separates" because the tweeter is not attached to the midwoofer (main speaker driver) and mounts separately in a location such as a door post. Component systems typically come with an external crossover so you can easily adjust the high and low frequencies sent to both the midwoofer and the tweeter. Center channel speakers are great for those looking to have surround sound in their vehicle.
2-way
Tweeter Design
Designs such as cone, dome, semi-dome, balanced dome, and whizzer are most popular. Cone tweeters are simple, efficient and typically are the most reasonably priced. Dome tweeters are used in most home speakers, and provide a smoother and more accurate sound. Semi-dome design is one with a dome placed inside a cone. A Balanced dome driver is a semi-dome with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the driver. A whizzer tweeter is a separate tweeter cone driven by the voice coil of the woofer.
Dome
Tweeter Composition
Materials such as polypropylene, silk, cloth, and paper are the most common, where as many more recent tweeters are now manufactured with composites such as Aluminum, Titanium, Mylar, and other materials.

PEI is an acronym for "Polyetherimide" which is an amorphous, amber transparent, high-performance thermoplastic.

Textile
Woofer Composition
Lightweight woofer cone materials are essential for efficient operation. Poly cones produce exceptional sound and are sturdy against various changes in temperature. Paper cones are very efficient, and when treated for moisture resistance, will perform at a high level. Poly refers to polypropylene, which is thermoplastic or fibers that are polymers of propylene. IMPP refers to injection molded polypropylene, a commonly used process and material in speakers.
Honeycomb Laminate (HCL)
Woofer Surround
A speakers surround is part of the suspension system. The surround protects the cone and prevents it from being displaced as it flexes out from the basket. It is usually made of a durable material like treated foam or rubber in order to withstand the strenuous job of producing bass frequencies.
Rubber
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
225 watts
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
75 watts
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
92 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
40 - 23000 Hz
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
2 ohms
Top-Mount Depth
The depth when installed on top of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the bottom of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
2-15/16"

Great Speaker

September 17, 2013

Great sound if connected with the right amp, and they looked very solid. Push them to the max you might get distortion but if you get the right settings will get great sound quality and comparable with many high end sound systems that come in some cars as standard.

Excellent Choice

July 2, 2013

I replaced stock installed speakers in the doors and rear deck with the P8862 pairs, hoping for the best (small volumes, not sealed, not an ideal install to optimize bass response). I crossed them over to the stock tweeters up on the front dash at 1200 Hz and what a pleasant surprise. I got outstanding clear bass response and much better stereo imaging than the stock install. I'm very pleased with the choice - on SALE. Great value.!!

Met my expectations

April 18, 2011

These are installed in the back of my '09 Mustang in lieu of adding a sub and an amp because I wanted to keep my trunk space this time around. In front are Infinity Kappas to handle the high frequencies. These JBL's produce lower and better bass than the Kappas as expected and give my system enough oomph to forgo the sub without loosing some punch. They also seem to produce some nicer and louder mids than the Infinities. Just for reference, they are being powered by a JVC KD-AHD69 head unit. I imagine with a four channel amp they would be able to go to even higher volumes without distortion than with just the head unit.

Sounds great

February 13, 2011

Get these speakers but don't push them with radio, get a nice 4 channel amp and they will sound much better. I have four of them in my wife's Tribute and she blast the system they sounded good with the Pioneer AVH-P3100 but they sound way better with the Kenwood KAC-6404. Not to mention i got them for a great "MAKE AN OFFER" price.

Good speakers, but not perfect

March 4, 2010

I installed these in my '93 Explorer (door speakers) They fit nicely, and have impressive bass response and power handling. However, they seem to have a bit of a response peak in the upper midrange around 3 or 4 khz, resulting in premature listener fatigue at higher volume levels. I realize some of this may be attributed to my car's acoustics, but I expected better from JBL.
