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:

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

Harman Tour

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 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
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" 
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

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!

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.

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.

These are the best rear decks I have ever had and I hope to keep them as long as possible! They sound fantastic, especially when powered with an amp! Great highs and great lows! They look swag! Recommend these to anyone and everyone! I got them when they were cheaper, but it looks like Sonic raised the price on them.

Great choice!

September 1, 2013

Bought a set of these to replace factory equipped BOSE speakers that I blew out after about three years. Great price on the speakers (compared to the $350 replacement cost for the BOSE). And when I cranked these speakers up the sound was better than the originals! When the door speakers go, I know what I'll be replacing them with!
