JBL GTO938
3-Way Grand Touring (GTO) Series

Professional JBL Sound

Professional JBL Sound:

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

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.




The Sound of quality

Sonic Electronix, one of the leaders in car audio, recently visited Harman, the premium global audio and infotainment group, at their research and development locations in Northridge, California and Detroit, Michigan. The purpose of these visits was to utilize and combine the powerful brand of Harman and the industry leading knowledge behind Sonic Electronix to begin working together on developing future car audio projects.

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.
6" x 9"
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.
3-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 Size
Refers to the size of the tweeter. Typically, smaller tweeters produces less output with higher frequency response.
1"
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
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.
300 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.
100 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".
94 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).
45 - 21,000 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.

No
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.
3"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
6" x 8-3/4" 
Hi-Res Audio Compatible
This feature refers to if the product is capable of Hi-Res Audio (HRA) playback.
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
Number of Speakers
This is the number of speaker that is included in the package. Each purchase will result in receiving the number of speakers indicated here. Please note that some items will have multiple woofers in the same enclosure. For sets of component speakers, this number will refer to the number of sets of speakers (For example, 2 would indicate the purchase includes 2 woofers and 2 tweeters).

Please refer to the product image and description for further details about the speaker.

Great sound for a low price

August 11, 2014

I wish I had researched these before I installed the 6.5 Alpine Type R in the rear!! They sound great with better bass response. The only con is the treble is a little "tinny" with the blocker set. Easy fix though, just push a little button. If you want better than factory sound for less then look no further.

Sounds good (It's a JBL)

June 16, 2014

This is one of the two pairs of JBL speakers I ordered (the other being the GTO528) for a friend. Both pairs got mounted inside a truck. Although I'm not a big fan of oval shaped speakers due to nonlinear distortions this one works pretty well for the price. The 0 dB /- 3dB switch for the tweeter it's nonsense, I don't see any reason for that since you'll equalize the sound from the amp/cd/tuner/mp3 player.

2012 Ram 1500 JBL GTO938

August 23, 2014

I installed these into the front and rear doors of my 2012 Ram 1500. These speakers fit perfect, but one hole will not line up with the speaker and will need to be drilled for the 4th screw to fit. I ordered the speaker connectors to fit the factory harness from crutchfield, and about 6 inches of wire is needed in addition to the aftermarket harness for the front speakers. This allows the harness to be connected outside the housing to prevent interference from the window bracket, and rattles.

The speakers sound amazing. They exceeded my expectations dramatically. I am only using the stereo to power and they have great sound at low and high volumes. Lows are amazing, and mid and highs sound great. I am using the Pioneer 4000 NEX as ahead unit and JL speakers in the dash. I could not be happier with the sound!

This is an amazing speaker, and the price makes it an absolute bargin!

Thank you Sonic!

Nice speaker with factory radio, Better with a amp.

May 29, 2014

I bought these JBL speakers to replace my cheap door Factory speakers in my 2014 Nissan Frontier. Although the front factory speakers are a separate woofer/ tweeter in the dash setup, these 3 way JBL in my door panels fill the sound waves just fine. Great clean high notes, bass is just ok when used with the factory radio. I added a amp to the factory radio and thats where the JBL'S came to life. So overall i would say, Add a amp and you will be much happier.

EXCELLENT!

January 6, 2011

I bought these speakers about 5 months ago. I needed to replace the stock speakers in my car. My 4x6's and my 6x9's in my Chevy Cavalier were shot and starting to sound distorted. I ordered these just as a replacement. I could not have been happier with the highs of this car. Since interior speakers aren't usually about bass I wasn't too disappointed. The speakers actually do pump out a decent amount of lows, but the highs were just extraordinary!

I was looking for replacement rear speakers for my 01 Honda Accord.

Impressive clean sound

June 17, 2010

The JBL GTO938 replaced my front 6x9's in a 1999 Dodge Turbo Diesel! Plenty of cab noise - but these speakers deliver clean, solid, and non-distorted sound - I am driving these with the stock stereo head!! They have been durable, build was solid, easy to hook up, therefore am ordering a pair of 5-1/4" for the rear.

I had infintit kappas and had to replace them over the years and I got these. They scream just as loud as the infinities but half the money. Great deal

I bought these because they were on sale. After I installed them, I was very pleased with the sound quality. Even at high volume, they still have crystal clear sound. They are easily worth twice what I paid for them.

Best sounding 6x9 I have had yet

September 1, 2016

Put these on my 2015 Harley. Custom application for saddlebags. 2 ohm which is needed with new Rushmore radios
.these have great highs and handle my 360 watt 4 channel amp just fine. Cannot beat these for bike applications. Clear at 80mph.

Not a ton of base but if you're looking for a great all round speaker this is the one. Couldn't be happier with my purchase. Gonna install these in my 16 GMC Terrain to replace factory ones.

2ohm genious thats affordable.

April 24, 2016

I have these as part of my current front stage. For the price it is hard to beat. The 2ohm impedance really helps as it makes it so I am getting 115 watts to each side instead of the 70 if they were 4 ohm.

HIghly recommend for the price.

great replacement speakers

January 18, 2016

I installed these in my 2002 grand am GT with monsoon system (2 ohm speakers)

installation was straight forward, however no speaker wiring was included. i suspect these speakers are normally powered by amplifiers and would use 14-ga / 16-ga speaker wiring. I soldered on the old speaker wires to the new 6.5" JBL's and plugged them directly in to the factory system. sound was full, and not too sharp. bass could be better, but what can you expect from a 6.5" coaxial. when partnered with the JBL 6x9 3-way's it was a great combo.

thinking of replacing stock speakers on 2014 Tacoma with these in the front and GTO628 in the rear door.....I realized I will need adapters, how will this combination work running off factory head unit...not looking for really loud, but good quality sound?
mike h on Jul 14, 2015
Best Answer: Your sound will improve; however, you need a need a new head unit too for some really improved sound. I put these in the back of my 2001 Town Car and noticed a little difference. Since a factory radio does not have that much continual output power, I would recommend a JVC or a Kenwood unit. The rms power on these units is 22 watts with about 45 watts max. I replaced mine with a JVC and the difference is outstanding. I don't even need an amp or sub. The sound is great.

I am looking for a good pair of 6x9s for the front doors of my Grand Caravan. I already own the amp and it's a RF P400-2 which pushes and underrated 100w at 4 ohms and 200w at 2 ohms. I was also looking at the newer model but the price of this one is far more accessible. Will this be a good match?

Best Answer: I think it would be a good match, I'm pushing around 90 watts to mine and they bump pretty good, also very clear, I will advise hitting the switch on the speaker to make the highs a little less piercing before you install them. They do hit lows pretty well so make sure they are very secure and well installed to get the full effect. But overall yes I think you'll be sending them enough power and they are a great speaker

Adding these GTO 938 to built Harley system using Rockford Fosgate PBR300.2 amp, 2 channel ,2ohm stable and Polk MM651 speakers. Trying to figure out how to wire 2 speakers per channel. 4 speakers total 2 per channel For 2 ohm amp? These speakers have only 2 connections on speaker, and the Polk has a 4 connection with a box then 2 connection to speaker input. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks John

Polk Audio MM651

Best Answer: Unfortunately your setup cannot be completed as you wish. Wiring two 2ohm speakers - like the GTO938 - will present a 1ohm load or a 4ohm load, which is fine, but your Polk Audio MM651 offer a completely different load, at 2.7ohms. Wiring the Polk Audio MM651s together will present a load Far different than that of the GTO speakers, this will stress the amplifier.

We suggest a separate 2-Channel amplifier for the second set of speakers.

Best Answer: I don't have a toyota but if you run these on a amp the tweeters will cut out when you turn the volume up. I have two of these and two 10s on the JBL 3 channel amp. It sounds good but like I said the tweeters will cut out when you crank it.

The matching amp is the JBL GTO-804EZ. However, the RE Audio ZTX-800.4 , SKAR Audio LP-80.4AB , and NVX JAD800.4 will Also make for a FANTASTIC match up.
