Priced Per Complete Component System

Speaker Specifications

This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Evolution C3 (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.
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" x 7" (also mounts in most 6" x 8" locations)
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.
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.

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.
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.
150 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.
75 watts
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).
48 - 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
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.

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.
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.

Smooth, Accurate speakers

May 28, 2013

I bought these speakers last December, so I was running them for five months. They do sound really good. I had them crossed over at about 100 hz so I can't comment on lower bass extension. But the mids and highs are pretty good. Excellent as a matter of fact. Much better than the Pioneer's that they replaced (TS-6802R), but they should be at 4x the cost. The thing that is most evident, is that these speakers do not fatigue the ears, like many cheaper speakers even at high volume. I had the four door speakers (2 JL audio in front doors, 2 Alpine in the back doors) powered by a Rockford Fosgate P-500-4 running through a JL audio Clean Sweep from factory Head Unit.

Sweet and powerful

January 31, 2013

I was looking for a component solution for my 2009 F150 and the standard 5x7 component sets that are mostly available on the market were not very good quality or performance. They typically sound tinny and shallow at best. I bought these speakers without hearing them and really felt I was taking a chance. To my surprise they are incredible and represent a solid value. I custom mounted the tweeters in my pillars up high and the soundstage produced is huge compared to using the factory locations lower in the door panel. This really goes against the installation guidelines due to the distance between the drivers yet I never sense any gap in the sound. They are driven by a Sounstream Reference 4 channel amp and the combo works great together. My music taste vary anywhere from classic rock to country to jazz and in all genres they deliver. The crossovers have enough flexibility to allow you compensate for different placement and acoustic situations. The woofer / mid-woofers are not going to give you mighty bass but they will give you a warm midrange and midbass. The tweeters are the best part as they reveal all the subtle differences in your music maybe some you have never heard before. II highly recommend them.

Nicest speakers I have owned

September 9, 2013

I bought 4 of these on sale and I'm quite happy with them. They have a separate crossover device which is kinda bulky and could make installation a challenge if space is tight but it works very well. I had plenty of room in my F-350 but in a compact car it could be tight. It can increase or decrease the gain of a specific frequency to tailor it to your system. The sound is nice and the tweeters can be detached and be used as satellites. When spending this much on speakers you will need a high end head unit or you are wasting your money. These may or may not not be the best speaker out there but they are the nicest set that I have ever owned.
Bottom line: I would buy these again.

Awesome Sound!

February 12, 2013

Installed these in a 2011 F-150 to replace factory door speakers. These are expensive but when paired with JL Audio subs, these sound incredible!
