Professional JBL Sound: GTO528

With the long history of professional audio equipment manufactured my JBL, it is no surprise that the Grand Touring Series (GTO) produce some of the finest sound available for car speakers. By integrating the majority of JBL's top car speaker technology, these speakers are able to effectively deliver truly stunning audio, while keeping the price affordable for everyone. For those that are looking for a quality car speaker that will not only sound great, but also keep more money in your pockets. Put your trust in JBL and these Grand Touring Series speakers.

Tweeter-Level Adjustment with Unipoint:

The tweeters on the GTO series speakers are an excellent example of JBL's advanced technology. Made from My/Ti (Mylar and Titanium composite), the tweeters offer a higher power handling, greater efficiency, and reduced distortion. To direct that sound where you want, JBL has designed a Unipoint rotating tweeter pod that allows the tweeter to be directed towards the listener. This results is better imaging and a more accurate sound stage. To top of the tweeter technology, JBL engineered a tweeter-level control switch that adjusts the tweeter dB output. This allows for more sound adjustments after the speaker is installed.

Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
GTO (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.
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
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.

Mylar/Titanium Hybrid
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.
Plus One
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.
135 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.
45 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".
90 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).
90 - 20,000 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.
2 ohms
Shallow Mount Installation
This means that the subwoofer/speaker is designed to be installed in areas that do not have a lot of space. Shallow mount subwoofers are typically found under a seat or behind the seat in some trucks.

Shallow mount speakers will typically have a mounting depth of 2" or less, while shallow mount subwoofers will typically have a mounting depth of 3" or less.

Yes
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"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
4-3/4" x 4-3/4" 
Speaker Grilles
A grating or screen of metal or plastic bars or wires, mounted in front of a speaker as protection. If yes, the speakers will include matching speaker grilles. If no, there are no grilles included.
Yes

Good little speaker

March 22, 2014

I bought these speakers for the rear of my single cab ram 1500. Sound quality is pretty good, but are drownded out by front 6x9 in doors. May be a better speaker in a different location or setup.

Great for the price

January 23, 2014

These JBL speakers are a significant improvement over the stock speakers I had in my Ford Transit Connect. The sound is clearer and cleaner, musical instruments sound better, bass is much improved. The speakers do get a little screamy at very high volume, but otherwise I'm very happy.

Great Value

July 6, 2014

I used these to re-place my front speakers in my Can-Am Spyder motorcycle. Since they are 2 ohm speakers they have effectively doubled the power of my head unit ( which is stock and cannot be replaced ). I can now play music quite loud if I choose to ( sometimes necessary on a MTC. ) without loss of clarity.

Nice speakers

June 16, 2014

This is the second pair of speakers besides the GTO938 I bought and mounted in a friend's truck. Sounds really good for the price but again I don't see any reason for putting a 0dB / -3dB switch for the tweeter since you'll equalize from the source in a much finer manner.

Not too bad

January 2, 2014

I am using these as a rear fill. I have them amped (80rms) and crossed over at 100hz. I originally tried 80hz, but they distorted a little bit at loud volumes. From 100hz and above, these speakers sound good. They are an excellent value.

January 12, 2012

JBL is an excellent choice for any speaker demands and I chose these to complement my Infinity 6x9 that I installed in the rear of my Grand Prix with a new Kenwood Headset. Excellent sound quality all round!
