Whether you're suffering with a blown speaker or you just want hear a little more detail in your music, JVC's DRVN speakers have you covered. The CS-V528 5-1/4" speakers feature a durable woofer cone made from a mixture of Aramid, carbon fiber, and mica, along with a 1" balanced dome PEI tweeter that'll increase your music's clarity. These speakers will give you a solid boost in sound quality, even when powered by your factory radio. Grilles are included.
The speakers that originally came in your car were made from inexpensive materials, designed to create acceptable sound at the lowest possible cost to the manufacturer. If you love music, you deserve better. Name-brand aftermarket speakers deliver fuller, richer sound with considerably more detail and nuance, and they're capable of playing louder and cleaner than factory speakers. Connect new speakers to your factory radio and you'll get the best possible sound from your dealer-equipped system. Pair them up with a new car stereo for a level of enjoyment that can rival a high-fidelity home audio experience.
Pros: Good quality, clean sound
These speakers were really hyped to be the best thing since sliced bread, but they really weren't that much of an upgrade over the stock Chevy speakers.
Pros: Good midrange and highs
Cons: Lousy bass--Stock speakers were better
Great quality!! Very easy to install (even for someone who has never installed anything in a vehicle before)
sounds nice hard to install
Easy install and good sound
OK here's the scoop. I bought a 2002 Pontiac Bonneville with original speakers and stereo. I was using a cassette adapter to listen to music from my phone, and this work out nicely until the Auto Reverse function junked my adapter. So being stupid I bought another, this time the sound was so distorted I thought I blew my speakers out. So I came on here first because Crutchfield has been used throughout the family and I used it before on my pickup. Bought the speakers yadayada, and they work don't get me wrong, it was the Instruction Sheet Crutchfield gives out that was the problem. I spent four hours trying to tear out my backseats just to get to the rear deck. Note to yourself look it up on youtube as well, if Crutchfield could also make a video that would have saved me time and few words I'm not proud of.
Pros: Great speakers, with great bass! I always recommend Crutchfield to my friends.
Cons: Instruction Sheet needs to be reworded and reevaluated. It was awesome when I did my pickup with it, my car not so much.
The stereo fits perfectly, was relatively easy to install after I figured out the adapter and wiring. It sounds great.
Pros: great sound, easy to use.
Cons: very bright at night
Installed in my 2005 Chevy Avalanche. Never installed a system before and this was real easy and saved my some serious cash. Only took four hours for everything.
Pros: Good value and easy to install instructions. Fits great
good sound & easy install
Fairly easy to install - sound is much better than factory. Everyone says they are weak but doesn't matter to me as I don't go loud (I like my hearing).
Pros: Good Value, adapter supplied for free.
Cons: Needed an adapter, install a bit fiddly.
Perfect fit great sound .
For the price, these are just fine. They brought a high level of clarity to my stock head unit. These have a lot of treble built into them, and not a whole lot of bass. Had to reconfigure my head unit's settings dramatically from the factory paper speakers. Overall though, a much better sound.
I rated the 6X9 in the same series a star higher, because these have a very low wattage rating and don't push a lot of volume. Doesn't matter with the windows up, but there is a large difference with them down. Also, I would've gotten the 6X9 as well for my front doors instead of these had I known they would fit, even though Crutchfield says they wouldn't. I was surprised to see 6X9's from the factory in the front doors.
Pros: High clarity, good price
Cons: Low wattage, low push, low bass potential.Crutchfield response on April 28, 2015 Thanks for taking the time to leave a review on these speakers. The front doors of your Avenger are so tight that there actually aren't many aftermarket 6x9's that'll fit easily. Our database lists the JVCs as being just a hair too big in several dimensions. You might be able to squeeze them in there, but it's so tight you risk damaging the speaker. That's why we recommend 6-1/2's or 5-1/4's instead.
Great value. If you just want to replace the stock speakers and plan on running the original deck, these are a great choice. Fit perfect and decent sound.
I picked these up as a replacement for the 9 year old factory speakers in my wife's van. They sounded so bad that I reinstalled the old speakers after 3 days.
Pros: Price. Great return policy.
Cons: Sound. I didnt expect much mid range or bass from these, but even the highs were distorted.
not a bad speaker for the price, good mids and highs, don't expect much bass from them
Cons: little bass
Have had these in my 97 Jeep for almost a year. Great all around speakers for regular music play with Rock, Yet the bass is not very good for my jeep (soft top) I'm sure in a regular vehicle with a hard top the bass will resonate much better. They are in the roll bar for now but i just got adapters for the dash to fit 5.25's in the dash. The grille they come with gives them a very BA look.
Pros: Great looking, very reliable, and good sound.
Good replacement product
These speakers are a great upgrade to my factory speakers! I haven't found any complaints so far. Crutchfield's instructions made installation easy.
Pros: good sound, value price
Nice low end, good sound quality, can't complain.
Pros: Good sound, inexpensive.
Cons: Required a mounting bracket, as I replaced 5x8" speakers with these.
Sound good and good price
Installed in the rear doors of my crew cab pickup, compliment the fronts very well.
Pros: Great sound cheap
Better than stock speakers, but bass is not good. Value was good since I received at have price when buying with JVC head unit.
Cons: Bass is weak.
I purchased these to replace the factory speakers in my Chevy Cobalt that had gone out. They are acceptable with no surprises - bass is not as low as factory, high end is pretty clear but nothing to write home about. Buy these for a cheap replacement, but don't expect to be wowed by them.
Pros: Low cost, clear high end
Cons: Poor bass, other better speakers are not too much more expensive
Pros: Clear sound, easy install
I think these door speakers are good for your back doors because not a lot of bass comes from these. They are great for mids and highs though. I have played many types of music on these and the all sound crisp and clear. I personally think they sound great for rock songs and most rap.
Pros: Easy to install, nice sound, great price.
Cons: None as of now
Very good speaker for the price.
Pros: great mid and high sound
Cons: fair base
Installed these speakers in 2005 GMC Sierra- they rejuvenated my factory stereo- Installation was a snap with instructions and supplied parts. Shipping was incredibly fast. Good Job Crutchfield!
Overall I'm pretty happy with this purchase. The speakers provide plenty of good clear sound. If I had it to do over again, I would have chosen a larger speaker to pick up a little more low end. As far as the Crutchfield Mastersheet goes, it should provide more detail around clip placement and panel removal. I ended up calling the help desk who was very helpful in providing more detail.
Sound quality is very good, far better than the factory speakers. Real good mid range sound, and excellent high range sound. Bass is as expected for a 5 1/4". Overall very good speaker. The only down fall is the mounting holes. They just didn't come close to being an "exact fit" as described.
Pros: Good sound quality.
Cons: Didn't fit well.
I got just what I wanted and it came with everything I needed to install it.
Pros: clear sound
Cons: base could be a little better but not bad for the price
