JL Audio Evolution® ZR Series Component Speaker System
JL Audio Evolution® ZR Series Component Speaker System

The car audio industry has multiple levels of quality that range from good, better, best, and then there is JL Audio quality. JL Audio's reference quality ZR component speakers system are made for those seeking the highest possible levels of audio performance and are the pinnacle of the JL Audio component speaker lineup.

Utilizing JL Audio's extensive design experience and exclusive technologies, Evolution ZR component system woofers and tweeters are precision-built in Germany, featuring die-cast alloy baskets and Kurt Muller cones and suspensions to produce unparalleled mid-bass and refined transparency. ZR component tweeters feature 1-inch aluminum domes with rubber-roll surrounds to produce unmatched high-frequency detail and extension. Made with super-premium component parts, ZR crossover networks are bi-amp capable and offer a range of flexible tweeter and mid-range adjustments for twenty possible voicing combinations. Engineered to deliver world-class audio performance and fidelity, ZR component speakers are for the most discriminating listeners.

Silk Dome Tweeter

Aluminum Dome Tweeter

The ZR component tweeters feature 1-inch aluminum domes with rubber-roll suspensions that damp unwanted ringing while delivering spectacular high-frequency extension. Compared to similar textile designs, aluminum tweeter diaphragms offer superior stiffness and high-frequency extension, with only a minor penalty in efficiency. With premium build technologies like a neodymium magnet and ferrofluid cooled and damped motor, the tweeter is capable of producing unparalleled transparency. In addition, as a stand-alone driver, they provide extremely balanced high-frequency reproduction from 4 - 25 kHz. The tweeters ship with a flush-mounting fixture with a classy electro-formed ring that provides a sophisticated touch in any installation.

JL Audio Linearity and Control

JL Audio Build and Precision

DMA is JL Audio’s proprietary Dynamic Motor Analysis system and is aimed at improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, Evolution ZR motors remain linear in motor force over an extreme range of excursion and also maintain a highly stable fixed magnetic field in the gap over a wide power range. This leads to vastly reduced distortion and faithfully reproduced transients... or put simply: tight, clean, articulate low end. In addition, JL Audio turns to their partners at Germany's Dr. Kurt Müller & Co. for critical cone and suspension elements that provide unparalleled woofer performance.

Speaker Specifications

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

Aluminum
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.
Butyl 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.
225 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.
85 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".
89.5 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.

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.
2.65"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches, required to contain the speaker.
5.56"
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.

2 Woofers + 2 Tweeters

Perfection!

April 30, 2008

I own a 2005 Toyota Tacoma X-Runner, the original speakers were 6x9. These speakers needed some minor modification to my doors to fit, but I ensured the sound by adding some dynamat. I'm running them with a JL 300/2 amp and the sound is concert quality, clear and concise. The bass is a lot better than I expected. I listen to primarily rock, and a little rap, which these speakers handle remarkably. Definitely worth checking out if your planning on adding a JL subwoofer(s) would be an awesome package for any vehicle.

JL Audio ZR 6.5" review

February 21, 2010

The JL Audio Zr 6.5" speakers are very good, although certainly not the best out there. I'm using them right now in my car, with other manufacturers crossovers. Since I'm doing this, the speakers sound good, but not great. For the price, I would rather buy a used Seas Reference component set. I was more happy with them than the JL"s, and unfortunately JL doesn't carry any B stock ZR crossovers..

These speakers are absolutely incredible, they sound so clear and amazing at all volumes. No distortion at all, they go louder then I will never need to run them any louder. I am running them at 90w RMS each, I seriously recommend these speakers.

Splendid Sound JL Rocks

July 21, 2011

These speakers are the best sound i have ever heard in a car, i'm running them with Powerful Boston Acoustic GT 4100 amp and sound is just fantastic and brilliantly staged front speaker. I had Boston Acoustic pro 60 which were blown i didnt really like them bcz they were too harsh also but these speakers are the best i ever owned planning to get these installed in my other car too. You will start hearing the music coming alive again tweeters are not harsh at all and the sound adjustment on crossover and is easy to do. I didn't change any settings on the crossover just installed them as they came. One thing is the crossover's are bigger in reality then in the picture shown on the website. So make sure you have somewhere to put them. These can handle big power amps well my amp is pulling 900 rms for 4 channel no distortion and harshness of any kind. I just luv the tweeters so natural and alive. The Factory Range Rover speakers sound like they are outdated and had no life in them after switching to these. It is a powerful product great Job JL very high quality sound reproduction.

i have got these to replace my kicker speakers and let me tell you these are amazing. only con is , do not over power them because if you leave it playing for a longtime the tweeter heats up and cuts off for a little bit.
