JL Audio Evolution C3 Series Convertible Component/Coaxial System

With the Evolution C3 Convertible Systems, the same product can be deployed in either a Component or Coaxial configuration, delivering outstanding audio quality in each application. Long woofer excursion capability with DMA-optimized performance delivers superb mid-bass and clean mid-range output, while the powerful 1-inch (25 mm) silk dome tweeter delivers brilliant high-frequency performance. The tweeter is very special in its own right, it is a pure silk dome edge driven tweeter, which makes it larger than traditional OEM tweeters, and it allows it to player louder and with better fidelity . The woofer houses a beefy 1.2-inch voice coil that generates a stunning mid-bass output without sacrificing mid-range fidelity. In addition, the woofer offers a mineral-filled polypropylene cone, a rubber surround, and an injection-molded polymer basket.

Silk Dome Tweeter

Silk Dome Tweeter

JL Audio C3 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 Linearity and Control

JL Audio Linearity and Control

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 C3 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. Its main catalyst is the driver's robust 1.2-inch voice coil, that allows extreme linear excursion, phenomenal power handling and control, control, control.

Beautiful Full Sound

2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited w/ C3-525 components in front, C2-525 coax in soundbar, 8w3v in back. The C2s & C3s are powered by Vibe Deathbox Stereo 4, while sub is powered by Cadence XaH250.2. The C3s are wonderful. The highs are brilliant and fantastic and the mids are very precise. Believe it that these little things do produce some bass. Nothing crazy, but it is there, making the music full and beautiful. I definitely would power these with a nice amp though. Everything was purchased through Sonic at awesome prices and fast service.

Love them

Love the Highs and Mids, everything hits just right. Just waiting to buy a sub to accompany them now. Probably going to go with a w6 or something similar. Wish I would've waited 2 days to purchase them though, price dropped $70. Prices are decent and they are authorized dealers for a lot of brands.
