Our take on the JVC CS-V6837

by John Pollard
JVC

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.

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-V6837 5"x7"/6"x8" speakers feature a durable woofer cone made from a mixture of Aramid, carbon fiber, and mica, along with a 1/2" PEI tweeter and 1" PEI midrange 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 not included – factory grilles are appropriate for most installations.

Highlights:

  • 5"x7"/6"x8" 3-way car speakers
  • carbon mica woofer
  • cloth and rubber hybrid surround
  • 1" PEI balanced dome midrange
  • 1/2" PEI dome tweeter
  • power range: 1-30 watts RMS (250 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 50-25,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 87 dB
  • depth: 2-5/16"
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Features

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

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

Tweeters: Each speaker also has a 1/2" PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide) dome tweeter.

Mounting Applications: The speaker's frame features two additional mounting holes and fits many 6x8, 5x7, and custom 6x8 applications. Please check the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to confirm fit.

Great Speakers for the Money!

Written By Walt H. (2001 F150 SuperCrew), Broomfield, CO on Saturday, February 08, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great speakers for the money and a big improvement over factory. I installed these on a 2001 F150 SuperCrew on all 4 doors. Install was fairly straight forward and took me a little more than an hour. Directions were perfect and took all the guess work out of removing the door panels. I really like the idea of having three way speakers and this fit well. I did not realize this before the purchase but JVC and Kenwood are the same company.
Pros:
Great improvement in audio over factory speakers. Much cleaner sound. The installation was also easier than expected with the help of the master sheets provided and the wiring harnesses.
Cons:
As someone else noted in the reviews, a plastic mounting piece is glued onto the speaker and is easily pried up if you unscrew the speak. I had one lift after I backed a screw out and ended up just peeling it off. Was not an issue for my install but something to note. Also, one of the provided wiring harness adapters for the speakers was a pain to connect. It turned out the wire popped out of the adapter and I lost sound. I removed the door panel again and fixed. Just a pain.

Very responsive at low amp... Havn't hooked up my amp yet but very impressed with their performance. Crutchfield has been my first stop for years for car audio.
Pros:
Great sound

The rim shroud is only stuck on. The screws push it off the speaker during install.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I've purchased many times before from Crutchfield and have always been happy with the products and service. These JVC speakers are great. Music sounds so much better now compared to with the factory speakers I had I on my '03 Toyota Tacoma. The installation was was pretty straight forward - just as described in the information provided by Crutchfield. In summary , they're great speakers for the price and I'm happy with the
Pros:
Great sound!!
Cons:
Some modification was required on my truck but this was noted on the Crutchfield website so I knew about it before hand. Otherwise I would have been done and back on the road an hour or so faster.
