Once again JL Audio is releasing some high quality products that are going to make your vehicle sound amazing. Lets hear what JL Audio says about the Evolution™ Series...

Evolution™ is serious product, engineered by JL Audio to meet the demands of the toughest acoustic and environmental conditions in the high-fidelity world. It is not about cute buzzwords or the exotic material of the month... it’s all about making your music come alive with realism and excitement.

Utilizing our extensive testing and development resources, each of the Evolution™ lines has been optimized to reproduce your music with lifelike balance, effortless dynamics and smooth response in the car. Particular emphasis has been placed on off-axis response and dynamic stability which might not be that important during a five minute evaluation on a demo board, but makes all the difference when installed in your car.

There are many less expensive products out there, and quite a few that are more expensive... So, do your homework and listen carefully, because no other piece of equipment makes a bigger difference in the sound of your system than your component speakers.

Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Evolution C5 (JL Audio)
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.
5-1/4"
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 Component System
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.

Silk
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.
Mineral-Filled Polypropylene
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.
Butyl 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.
65 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".
88.5 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).
53 - 25,000 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.
4 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.
2-1/4"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
4-1/2 x 4-1/2

Would Buy Again!

April 17, 2011

These speakers are excellent; very crisp highs, just enough midbass to keep you interested, and they are built with quality materials that will last. I bought these to get just out of the entry level sets, but didn't want to pay big for the higher end speakers. I am no audiophile, but these speakers bring music to life. I had a factory Bose system that these replaced, and I couldn't be happier with my choice. I also will no longer be using MP3 320 bit rate music with this system... They definitely bring out the imperfections of your source. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase, and Sonic is the only place I go for my mobile electronics needs. Thanks again!

wow JL Audio speakers sound insanely Good!

August 15, 2012

these components sound amazing. if you are thinking of buying these but are not sure if you should, please take my advice and buy them. they sound incredible! the bass on the midrange is very strong and the tweeter just gives it that perfect clarity. when listening to Acoustic music like the Eagles song Hotel California the guitar sounds as if you were having a private concert, i also listen to creed and even their music sounds insanely good. i tested these components with Bass Head music, for those of you who like to compete you guys know how low the hertz can get on low bass music. well these components have been able to hit good low hertz with out distortion and even make my door mirrors flex. the bad is the cost of these speakers are pretty high but worth every penny, thats pretty much all the bad i have to say. the crossover is a good size its big but not that big. they can be hidden under the carpet in the front by your gas and brake pedal so no one can see what you have just hear the sound Quality. i have owned these JL Audio components for about 7 months and dont regret buying them. i love them a lot and i will never go back to the old brand i used to use for years.

Porsche 911 993 w/ HiFi option install

December 14, 2011

The 130mm mid-woofer's frame architecture is shared with that used in 993s HiFi spkr option making a direct fit into the Transmission Line aligned bass reflex door mounted HiFi enclosures. The C5 soft dome tweeters also can be installed into the original curved door mounted tweeter pods, but a small amount of creativity is needed. The superb performance of the Jl Audio enhanced Porsche OEM HiFI option being run by the OEM Radio and Nokia amp will astound you. Install the XO supplied in the kit and bypass the crummy OEM mid-range of the HiFi option. An excellent Audio Upgrade awaits! You'll thank me.
