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.

  • 5-1/4" 2-way car speakers
  • carbon mica woofer
  • cloth and rubber hybrid surround
  • 1" PEI balanced dome tweeter
  • power range: 2-27 watts RMS (220 watts peak power)

Why replace your car's original speakers?

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.

Product Research

Features

Woofer: Mica is added to an aramid and carbon fiber composite olefin base, resulting in a rigid, light, and durable cone.

Tweeters: Each speaker features a 1" PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide) balanced-dome tweeter; PEI is a polymer film that produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging. A semi-dome tweeter has a dome placed inside a cone. Balanced dome tweeters are semi-dome tweeters with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the tweeter.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

good speeker for the price

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

not a bad speaker for the price, good mids and highs, don't expect much bass from them

Pros: price

Cons: little bass

Great for the price.

Written By Tom C, New York on Wednesday, April 09, 2014

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.

Better than stock speakers, but bass is not good. Value was good since I received at have price when buying with JVC head unit.

Pros: Price

Cons: Bass is weak.

Decent speakers

Written By Pete, Bossier City, LA on Sunday, September 01, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

nice Speakers

Written By Ty D, Fayetville, TN on Sunday, August 18, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

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!

Pretty Happy with Sound

Written By Anonymous, California on Thursday, May 09, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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 wonderful!

Written By s55623i, Cullman, AL on Wednesday, May 08, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Perfect!

Written By Yous, Mid Ohio on Friday, April 26, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Get everything you’ll need to enjoy your new JVC CS-V528

Reduce ambient road noise and your vehicle's "rattles," for better sound inside your car.
You may need speaker wire to connect your speakers to your amp or receiver.
Keep your speakers clean and dry. They compress to fit behind your speakers.
The right tools will help keep your installation simple and clean.
These speaker connectors are handy if you're running new speaker wire or if your speakers have oversized terminals.
If your stereo doesn't cut the deep bass from your full-range speakers, a set of bass blockers can help prevent distortion and give you cleaner bass too.
