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

Priced Per Pair

Speaker Specifications

This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
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.
6" x 9"
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.

Why did you choose this?

Did some research and so far it seems like they're the best choice for a decent price

My Bike has a 2 ohm system on it , this was the logical choice

These speakers seems to meet handling requirements of the Kenwood amp that I am installing. on my motorcycle.

James E R on Jun 10, 2016
Stupid question, is this price for each? or per pair?
A shopper on Sep 17, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,

Not a stupid question; the last line in the Description that says "Priced Per Pair" is often overlooked. Priced Per Pair, by the way.

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?

Rockford Fosgate P400-2
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
John W on Oct 24, 2015
Polk Audio MM651
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.

1 Review of this product says they fit great in a Toyota but needed adapter plates. Does anyone know where I can get the plates? I have a 07 Camry with JBL stereo and no navigation. Thanks!
Paul D on Feb 16, 2015
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.

What's a good amp for these?
A shopper on Nov 18, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,

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.
