JL Audio Evolution® C2 Coaxial Speaker System

JL Audio Evolution C2 speaker systems deliver an impressive audio performance solution and value. The technology of the Evolution C2 Series has been drawn from JL Audio's experience in woofer and tweeter design. They have been engineered to deliver adequate efficiency while retaining a smooth mid-range response with low-frequency extension. The smoothness of response and the freedom from distortion are factors that make the C2 Series speakers truly one of a kind and enjoyable for everyone, and the resulting product is one that delivers performance for any car audio enthusiast at a price that won't break the bank!

Silk Dome Tweeter

JL Audio C2 tweeters incorporate silk dome diaphragms to deliver smooth high-frequency transitions, on and off-axis. Silk is a natural material with inherently good characteristics as a tweeter diaphragm. In addition to being very light in weight, silk exhibits excellent damping properties, which reduces ringing and resonances in the tweeter's passband, leading to a smooth, pleasing high-frequency character free from unnatural sibilance or exaggerated brightness. This is why a Silk Dome Tweeter is preferred by many audiophiles for its overall balance.

JL Audio Quality, Build and Design

JL Audio Evolution C2 coaxial speaker systems feature mineral-filled polypropylene cones, long excursion capabilities and stamped steel frames. In addition, the woofer design benefits from JL Audio's vast woofer design experience and advanced modeling systems. It is this use of proper high-quality components and advances that allow the speaker to perform better than any other speaker in its price range. The C2-690tx, specifically, has a respectable frequency response of 53 Hz - 22,000 Hz, a continuous-power handling of 70 watts and a solid efficiency of 93.0 dB, giving it the ability to produce smooth mid-range and highs.

c2 690tx

I have been a JL fan for quit some time. Have heard some good things about these 6x9 n just had to get me pair for the corolla. They sound really nice very good detail in the music gives a warm feeling when u listen to them. These might be entry level speakers,but you can't beat them for the price.

Waste Of Money

I was JL Audio's absolute biggest fan until I bought these speakers. The highs sound pretty good and the bass gets about as low as you expect a 6x9 to get. BUT, the mids to me were absolutely horrible! On some songs, they were ok, but if anybody but a woman is in the song, the voice is inaccurate and scratchy. Also, although the bass CAN get semi deep, it is not clean bass at all. My previous speakers were Kenwood 6x9's and I can honestly say they were every bit as good as these for half the price. OVERALL: These speakers are a step up from factory and better than the speakers you can buy at Wal-Mart. But believe me, for the price, you can find a lot better sound quality speakers (I have). Needles to say, I sent these speakers back within days of installing them. JL Audio's door speakers are not on par with their other products.

Little dissapointed in JL's 6x9s.

Needed a little rear fill for my regular cab Tundra and thought these might fit the bill. Ordered the JLs and purchased a set of wedged mdf boxed from Sonic to put them in.

Got them hooked up to my Pioneer AVH-P4300DVD and I have to admit I'm a bit disappointed in their sound. I'm assuming it's because they're in such small boxes but WOW they sound horrible.

Planning on upgrading to the JL XD400/4 amp to see if that wakes these speakers up.

Sound Great

These speakers sound great when paired with a 300w Slash V2 amp. They are pretty powerful and have a nice crisp sound. However, they aren't very durable, after about 3-4 months I had one of the tweeters explode.

jl audio C2-690TX

I have 4 of these in my 300c. They are all installed behind the back seat head rests. On an orion hcca1000.4 these things are crazy loud and can be heard clearly from a long ways away. Mids/lows are incredible compared to any 6x9 i've ever heard personally.

Prizing beats the competition

Highly recommend this product because it's one of best quality that you can get for the price that I paid for .

Simply Awesome

I was skeptical at first because of the high price point compared to competitors but I read up on this product online and it got great reviews.

I decided to try it for myself and I have not been dissapointed. The low notes are defined and the high notes are pitch perfect.

I love these speakers and you should try them for yourself.

Great 6x9 speakers

Saw some bad reviews on this product my customer wanted these 6x9 speakers. I installed them on a skar audio 4 channel amp. These speakers are loud , clear, and very accurate. These speakers must be amped at least 85x4. I've been a installer since I was 16 years old. Now I'm 51 years old and still love installing.

Good "bang" for your buck!

Nice looking speakers fit in the factory location of my 2004 dodge 2500, the front doors, and sounds way better than stock. Stock was infinity from the factory and this is one hell of an upgrade. Bass is good and response is great, thanks to sonic electronics for the great price and fast shipping. I have always done business with sonic and will continue to do so.
