JL Audio C1-690

True edge-driven tweeters, stamped steel frames and lots of other features to preserve every detail of the music you love. That's just a taste of what the C1 Series has to offer.

Need more? Oh, there's more

The JL Audio C1-690 components are designed to improve your sound without complicating the installation. Built to fit behind most factory grilles, the C1 Series will set you up with more sonic enjoyment than your factory drivers. Protections against distortion, high-quality materials and proven technology all come with every speaker in the C1 line.

The Specifics

The two-way configuration of the C1 components makes them an easy choice. Mount the mineral-filled IMPP midwoofer in the factory location, and put the high-quality tweeter in a spot of your choice. The Conex spider allows better motion of the voice coil while other safeguards prevent buzzing.

The multi-adapter ring also gives you more flexibility in your installation. For these 6" x 9" components, the ring allows bottom-mount installations.

Get more for your money with the C1 Series. Put these in your cart and prepare for better sound in your ride.

2015 Ram 1500 Crew Cab

I just installed these in the front door of my 2015 Ram 1500, and they sound great! Paired with a Pioneer GM-D8704 and JL Audio 690tx in the rear doors. Nice punchy bass and quality tweeters, you can't beat the quality for this price! First time dealing with Sonic, and they have been absolutely fantastic! I won't buy from anywhere else!

Bang for your buck

Great product from JL audio and for the price can’t beat it. Installed in my 82 Chevy, really gives rich deep mids.

Good deal

As one of the cheaper component sets, I feel like these perform very well. Came with all needed hardware and for in factory locations with minimal modification (tweeters). Good low end with the woofers, good sound quality. My only complaint is I had to mount the crossover in the door and had no included hardware for that but i got it taken care of.

Such an improvment

Always wanted a solid pair of components but didn't want to get crazy. Great value in these speaker, the range is phenomenal!

Good bang for your buck

I like that these speakers come with separate tweeters. They work well with the stock receiver on my 2016 F-150. The metal clips don't stay on the Metra adapter that was free add on, but a little tape will keep them there for mounting.
