Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
MS (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.
6-1/2"
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 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.
Inverted 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.

Titanium
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.
Fiberglass
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.
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.
160 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.
80 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".
89 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).
60 - 20000 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.

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.
2-1/4"
Bottom-Mount Depth
The depth when installed from the bottom of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the top of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
2-7/16"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5-7/8" x 5-7/8" 
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

Don't second guess yourself with this component set, I bought both the JBL MS-62C (FRONT) and the JBL MS-52C (REAR) got both sets for less than $250.00 on sale (thanks Sonic). Let me just say these speakers will set your ride apart from the rest. There is not one person who has gotten in my car and not fell in love with the high fidelity of my audio system. I mean it sounds like a freaking concert in there. The mid bass is great, I have mine crossed over at 80hz on up and my subs @ 80hz on down. For metal based tweeters they are not harsh at all, in fact I would say they are about as close to a soft dome tweeter as a metal based tweeter can be, the sound is simply incredible. I have 80w rms going to all 4 doors with a 60/40 fade to the front to give the illusion of rear fill. In the end I estimate that I've spent a little over 2 grand on my system counting everything from head unit to speaker wire and that includes doing the Big 3 and extra battery in the back. I done all the install myself (a lot of nights without sleep) but in the end it sounds like a 5k-10k dollar system. The secret is to do ALOT of research, ask ALOT of questions and buy the brands that you do choose to run, from the cheapest most reputable place you can trust. Shop wisely and be very patient. Now that I've taken up too much of your time with this review, go install something, lol.

Great component set!

April 30, 2014

Installed these speakers in well sealed doors, tweeters in pillars. Hooked them up and was blown away! If you told me these were a $500 set, i would believe you. Great sound quality, crisp pure, clean sound. I have these running active crossed at 3.15k being fed about 80w rms. Sounds amazing! Best comp set for the money right now!

Great speakers I ever own

March 12, 2014

I been searching for a really good set of component speakers. I've heard a lot of great speakers too like the dls reference series, rainbow audio sl, and dream line that I got in stalled in my last car. They sound amazing but I wanted to be different plus I wanted to do it on a budget so I look up and jbl ms-62c got a lot great reviews . I got them install a few days ago and boy let me tell you it's amazing!!! I got it hooked up to my head unit only (kenwood ddx790) and it's awesome. Was afraid that the tweeter will be to harsh for my taste but it actually sound pretty smooth. The best part of it is the mid bass, mid bass sounds so good I can listen to it out my sub playing. I will be powering up later with a massive audio nx4 so I'll update my review when installed.

Sounds phenomenal!!!!

February 16, 2014

Got these to replace my cerwin vega vmax 6.5 components because the tweeters are a little harsh. These Jbl components sound incredibly awesome, they dont get as loud as the vegas but the sound quality is fantastic. Driver and tweeter build are good and the crossover is well made as well. The tweeters were a bit tricky to get into the cup holders but once they were in they looked flawless!! In all they were a good addition to my system.

High end Mids and Highs for Mid range pricing.

February 8, 2014

After much debate and thought on what mids to use for the main front sound stage,.. these were recommended over and over. I finally gave them a shot and looked them over (I encourage you to go to Amazon, car audio forums, etc and find a bad review on these). I am pleasantly pleased that they are everything people said they were. The strongest quality of these JBL's is their Mid range power -- I can see these speakers being used in setups that don't have any subs and sound phenomenal.. I have them Crossedover at 100hz,.. and when I turn my sub off the music doesn't sound weird like it's a bunch of treble and weak lows.. these carry and imo do a little "Sub" duty on their own. Great for overlap between sub and mids. Make sure they fit, but they have nothing that is overtly larger than other speakers in this category. The tweeters are 1" and provide several mounting options, brackets, flush ring options, etc. The Crossovers are designed well and have three jumper settings to pull back the "brightness" on the tweeters if you don't like them at the default levels.. Which is a nice touch. (I left mine at max).

Got these speakers last week and hooked them up instantly. After a week break in they sound awesome, handle alot of power and have great tonal characteristics. Tweeters are a bit bright when you run them at 0db but put them at -3db and they balance off nicely. The only problem i've found is that the passives are extremely difficult to open when you have to make adjustments. Great set to throw amplifier power behind. Highly recommend it!!!!

Highly Recommend!

August 6, 2013

After months of research I decided to get these new JBL's, to replace the factory Bose set up in my tahoe. Since I was doing a complete install I wanted to get something that would sound good for all types of music. I have always like JBL produces and did a lot of comparing on several different sites. I was looking at these as well as CDT's, Sundown Audio, and Hertz. After reading, listening to, and asking tons of questions i couldnt be happier with my decision! These JBL's sound amazing! They are crystal clear, and stay that way from low level to full tilt, no matter what im listening to. I have quite a wide range of music taste, from dudstep, old school rap, rock, metal, you name it and I listen to it. I have been extremely happy with these and are powering them with a JL 300/4, and they are quite happy with this and could take more if I ever decided to upgrade my amp. I also replaced the rear door speakers with JBL P662, also running off the JL amp. They fill in quite nicely and are nice a clear as well. These JBL's are a super deal, and from what I could find, the best bang for the buck and I could'nt be happier! I would recommend these to anyone...

Best 6.5 components for the price, and probably for ANY price

July 23, 2013

Put these in my /08 350Z, running off 100W/ch amp. Sound is nothing short of incredible. Read about these on one of the big car audio forums, some really detailed reviews there, and the guys there (who are real audiophiles) absolutely RAVED about these speakers. Best sounding speakers I have personally ever owned, and I have owned MANY.

February 24, 2013

I just finished installing these today and, although I have not started any tuning, I am EXTREMELY, impressed! I have not heard such clear and loud music from a system that I can remember. I pulled the trigger on these comps after doing TONS of research. They are getting rave reviews and selling out at places at a high rate. JBL hit a homerun with this components and they are not only a great set for the price, they are a great set PERIOD. I am running them with the supplied crossover but plan on going to an active setup in a little while, just to see if there is much of a difference. They are rated at 80 watts rms but I have them a getting a little more than that with the gains adjusted accordingly (I rarely ever crank it). What I was astonished the most about these was how life like vocal tracks sound, you can hear their breaths and articulations, its great. Gives my music a whole new dimension. Get these while they are still in stock!

Great Value from SE and Seriously Well-Built

January 5, 2013

Currently have these comps mounted in well-deadened doors. First powered them with a Rockford P8004 and now have them getting juice from an Eclipse 36501. They accept the power much more willingly from the Eclipse amp and will play around with bridging them on the four channels of the Eclipse when more wiring arrives. The woofers in this set can seriously produce some good midbass, but are very install-dependent. Without the doors properly deadened, you won't be getting the midbass clarity these speakers are so good at producing. Have noticed that, even without a sub, these constantly help point out new parts of the doors to deaden. You could legitimately use these without subwoofers if you're just looking for well-rounded sound. The tweeters, despite being metal domes, are respectably laid-back. They are not shrill or sibilant which has been my experience with other metal domes in the past. This might also have to do with the crossover points JBL chose in the passive crossovers as it seems the woofers carry most of the sonics and the tweeters just close it out from about 2.5KHz up. Also, I like the fact that JBL included both surface-mount and angle-mount cups that are easy to work with and not made of cheap plastic. The tweeter is easily removable from either housing as well if you need shallow mounting. I have not yet run these active, but am considering doing so in the not-so-distant future. Have been very impressed running them passive and they are meticulous at reproducing live instruments well. Drummers or fans of accurately reproduced drums will see the benefits of this more than anyone else as they know how difficult it is to get cymbals right on car audio speakers. Additionally, all guitar and bass work is well-presented. You can clearly hear individual picks and strums and bass riffs are easily distinguished. In short, this was a very worthwhile purchase and I would easily recommend this set to anyone, regardless of budget. They are serious contenders in the sub-200 (heck, even the sub-300) market.
