Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Evolution C2 (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.
6-1/2" (also mounts in 6-3/4" w/ included brackets)
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.

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.
Mica Injected Polypropylene (MIPP)
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.
100 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.
60 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".
91 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).
59 - 22000 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.
2-9/16"

Excellent Choice

January 23, 2010

I installed four of these in my wife's Toyota 4-Runner to replace the OEM speakers. The sound quality is impressive to say the least. The only equipment powering them is a JVC KW-XG700 with no external amp. As already stated here, the quality of these speakers is excellent, complete with rubber cover magnets that are huge. After installation was complete I performed the "how much can they take test" and was impressed at how loud I was able to crank it before the sound quality degraded. Bass is outstanding for speakers this size and the highs are nice also. These are a great choice if you're looking for a nice improvement over your factory units.

decent speakers for the price

September 20, 2013

replaced rear factory toyota speakers with these. huge difference in sound quality and distortion/volume. used with scosche brackets for 6.5s and metra wire adapters. install wasnt too crazy. pleased with the purchase; it was either these or Alpine Type Rs. powering them with an Alpine ktp445u and they complement my dual 8 inch JL W3 ported enclosure very well. if your looking for good speakers and working within a budget, go for these. if you can spend a little more, id go for C3's or C5's (if you can amp them).

Nice sounding value speaker

June 7, 2010

I'm powering these speakers off a Pioneer P4000DVD and they sound very good for under $100. I had to set the high pass filter at 80hz but that is pretty typical for running off a deck. If you want bass, I would avoid these. You should have a sub or at least 6x9s in the back to complement these speakers.

Great speakers!

September 11, 2009

These are some of the best speakers I've heard--ever! They match up all the frequencies very accurately. They're rated at 100 watts max. only but if you have a head unit that pumps 50 watts X 4 (@ 20 watts RMS, give or take), these'll be perfect for you. They're rated at 60 watts RMS, so pretty much any HU that you match them up with will do the job nicely. However, if you're planning on hooking up an amp you're probably better off getting something else (i.e., Infinity Kappa), since these babies pump up 91 dB with the head unit alone! I actually replaced a pair of Kenwoods for these ones because of their better quality of sound--and I was not disappointed. The manufacturing quality is also remarkable! I've never seen speaker magnets all covered with rubber. They're still 6" even but JL Audio makes a 6.5" also of the same specifications, which might fit some cars better.

What is the best speaker/amp combo for door speakers to run for 2005 Toyota tundra for full clean sound that can hit lows?
brandon g on Sep 2, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Brandon,

The JL Audio C2-650x is a great start! You will get very clean SQ with an above average range. You are limited to the excursion of a 6.5", so the extent of 'hitting lows' may not be on par to what you wish to get, but if you are looking for reasonable low end - like that the a 6.5" woofer can provide - then these will get the job done. A proper amp to match the quality will be the JL Audio Slash 300/4v3 .
