Upgrade your factory speakers

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-V628 6-1/2" 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.

Product Highlights:

  • 6-1/2" 2-way car speakers
  • carbon mica woofer
  • cloth and rubber hybrid surround
  • 1" PEI balanced dome tweeter
  • power range: 2-40 watts RMS (250 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 45-25,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 89 dB
  • depth: 1-3/4"
  • warranty: 1 year

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


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.

Woofer Mounting: In addition to fitting standard 6-1/2 and 4-hole 6-1/2 applications, the speaker also has a standard 6-3/4 bolt pattern. However, if mounted in a 6-3/4 location the holes for the smaller pattern create an air leak, which must be sealed using a speaker baffle, or something similar.

Good sound; fit leaves a little bit to be desired

Written By Chip, Browns Mills, NJ on Saturday, September 13, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Speakers sound great matched up w/ a JVC head unit and crossed over. Mids and highs sound great; can't comment on bass response as all mine comes out of the sub. Fit was not exact; even w/ the bracket. You play the game of matching it as best as you can, then drilling another hole in the door and carefully routing the wire - after soldering on the new leads. Still not a difficult installation overall, and the sound is great. Crutchfield's master sheet made the door panel removal a breeze.

Pros: Price, sound, mids and highs

Cons: Fitment not exact, even w/ included bracket for Nissan Xterra rear speakers.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great set of speakers. I drive a late 80's Land Cruiser and trusted Crutchfield's expertise that these would indeed fit my car with zero modification required. They did indeed. Installation was extremely easy, and this was my first time doing any sort of speaker installation. A great upgrade for my blown stock speakers.

Pros: Easy installation (zero modification required), Great Sound.

Cons: None.

Eh, they're just OK

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not a real replacement for a minivan. Go up to 6x9 if you want replacement speakers.

Pros: Price. Install kit made it easy to put in. Highs were pretty decent.

Cons: Limited Bass/mid range. Too small to fill a minivan with decent sound. Even my 9 year old wanted to know why the music sounded "funny."

Written By Scott K, Holtsville NY on Monday, May 26, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Well made and sound good. I didn't match them with the front door speakers so I do have to fade to the front or risk going beyond these speakers capacity. But that was my fault. Nice upgrade over the factory speakers.

Pros: Direct fit. Huge improvement over the OEM speakers.

Cons: Wish the RMS was higher.

Sounds Great!

Written By 1979Aztec, Eureka, CA. on Sunday, May 25, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My wife's 2007 PT Cruiser started out with a good sounding stereo system, but over the years, musicals like "Oklahoma" started buzzing on the crescendos. I turned to Crutchfield for a solution, and have since replaced the original four speakers with a set of these JVC speakers. The sound is now better than ever, and the price for the two kits was a good bargain.

Pros: Price, Sound quality, fit.

Cons: None.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Ordered these as replacements for factory speakers in 2005 Chevy 2500HD PU. Far superior than original speakers, good bass, much brighter. Easy installation with good instructions and accessories supplied by Crutchfield.

Pros: Sound and ease of installation.

Cons: Some might want more bass......not me.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Definitely pleased with these speakers, rock solid sound, deep rumbling bass, crisp clear highs. Worth every penny and then some. Perfect fit. Truly the way to go if you are on a tight budget and still want awesome sound.

Pros: Perfect fit, no distortion at high volume levels, fits in factory locations with no modifications and can use factory grille to maintain stealth.

Cons: There is none.

I replace my old door speakers in my 2005 GMC Serria with JVC CS-V628 speakers when I also replaced my radio. They match up great with the JVC KW-R500 CD reciever.

Pros: NIce sound and easy to install with the new mounts that I recieved with them.

Cons: none

Pros: Great price for what I received

OK for cheap

Written By Busted Speakers, Maryland on Saturday, October 12, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good for the price. They were very muddy in the rear doors of my Jetta, so I moved them to the front doors and they sound OK there. May work fine for other vehicles.

Pros: Fairly balanced sound for a cheapy. Happy that it had the hybrid fabric surround. Handles enough power for the factory head unit. Two-way with coaxial tweeter is not the smoothest, but its nearly as good as the factory speakers before they blew out.

Cons: Shipped with wimpy adapters and 'harness' connector that did not power the satellite tweeter. If you do not need those componenets, these are perfectly good inexpensive speakers.

Better than blown

Written By Eric-T, 6000 Ft on Thursday, May 16, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If you are replacing blown speakers and do not want to spend much these will be OK. They add the bass back into door speakers and will probably last. The midrange is weak and the tweeter is one of those chromed poly domes with chrome plastic flash. You will never see the tacky chrome unless you surface mount and the performance of the tweeter is not so good. I put them in the rear doors of an old Jeep Grand Cherokee and they are fine, especially compared to the original speakers which had no foam supporting the cones.

Pros: Tuff, and good bass at a value price

Cons: Midrange and high frequencies weak.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great front speakers for what I was looking for. 2001 Jetta. I installed MTX TDX52 in the Back and these JVC's in the front. Good balance of Bass and treble. The JVC units do not provide much bass but that was what I was looking for. I didnt want my teenage daughter driving around with the ridiculous BASS Thumping. I paired these with the JVC KW R500. She is happy and I am happy with the sound and the price !

Pros: price

Cons: lack of Bass if that is what you are looking for

good looks

Written By Anonymous, Nevada on Monday, April 29, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I gotta say I love these speakers. I installed them in my 2000 civic sedan front sides and they are very crisp. Not raspy to the point where my ears feel like they are gonna bleed which is good. They don't have any bass at all though which I figured based on the material they are made out of, but I was not expecting bass, I wanted something crisp and clear that will compliment the sound of my sub.

Pros: Very clear crisp

Cons: not really an issue for me but these speakers have no bass so if you want some bassy speakers don't get these i suppose.

Great speakers. Easy install.
