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.

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.

JVC CS-V6837 for 2012 Ford Escape

Written By JVC CS-V6837 for 2012 Ford Escape, SF, CA on Wednesday, August 27, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers are definitely an upgrade from stock - much stronger magnet, better cone material, and three-way compared to two. I expect them to last much longer. I was replacing a blown front stock speaker. From the specifications, I was expecting a greater improvement than I experienced. I purposely selected these speakers for their low RMS rating since I did not want to add an amp. It seemed like they would be very efficient and still give a significant boost in sound quality. However, the improvement is marginal compared to stock. The bass is not as well defined as I would like and the highs are not very sharp for a three-way speaker. I think these would probably sound much better over stock with a new head unit (which would add more power) or an amp. For the money, I would suggest the pioneer TS-G6844R. Cost less and makes a sound quality is much better even with stock. I have the pioneers in Ford Explorer which I ran with just the stock head unit and the difference in sound quality was noticeable. Not so with the JVCs. These speakers need power.

JVC Automotive Speakers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These are great speakers. The sound is great and the instellation is easy except for the wiring adaptor. That adaptor says it will work on an F150. But I read on all the people who have an F150 or any F series truck, it will not fit the front speakers. Others said it will fit the rear, I didn't buy any rear speakers.
Pros:
Sounds good, easy installation.
Cons:
Wiring adaptor will not work on front speakers.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers are great drop replacements for the decent but limited OEM speakers found in most late model Fords. They really wake up the sound of Shaker 500 system in my Mustang. They were also a perfect fit in the doors with no clearance issues with the door panels.
Pros:
Great sound Perfect fit Great price Free factory wiring adapters
Cons:
None so far

Grutchfield provides good information for installing these speakers

Written By Dennis, Kihei, Maui, HI on Monday, May 05, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
My original speakers were no longer functional because of age and degradation of the paper and rubber materials used. I just needed new speakers for an older car. These worked fine, and most importantly, I got great directions and information about how to install them. Way more than I thought I would get, and must more help than one would get from a store (if there was one here on Maui).
Pros:
Great help from Crutchfield. I had no fear of breaking something when doing this installation job myself. No problems at all.
Cons:
I don't have any

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.

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.

Great sound!!

2 questions already asked

I know this question is kind of vague, but how is the bass output on these? I know enough not to over do the volume at a certain point. That being said, if im blasting my tunes they wont blow easily right? [ Matt Bedo  Jun 09, 2014 ]
9 answers
  • I bought these speakers and a new receiver for my girlfriend. She loves the sound that now feels her little SUV. Output from the bass is just right. Definitely recommended! [ Steven   Jun 12, 2014 ]
  • I put 4 of these speakers in my 2007 Ranger. I prefer driving with my windows down instead of using the A/C whenever possible, so I was looking for good sound quality at loud volume to overcome road and wind noise. These speakers work great, whether I am listening to music or to NPR. I have had to turn the volume nearly to max on my factory stereo on occasion to hear clearly, and the speakers are fine. May need to upgrade my stereo soon, but that's another matter. Speakers are a great value. [ robert   Jun 11, 2014 ]
  • I was pushing 125 w to them and they sounded fine. However the base output needs to be pampered a bit with backings. Overall I'm pleased with them and feel they are a great value for the money. [ JASON   Jun 11, 2014 ]
  • Originally I purchased 5" round Kenwood for 2004 Mustang front door panels to compliment 6x8 Kenwood rear deck. As you could expect there was no bass in the front and all of the sound was coming from the rear. I replaced the 5" round with these 6x8 JVC in the front door panels. Made all the difference. Full sound all around. Very happy with JVC Performance. I listen loud as well. So I would say probably not easily blown. I am only running 25 wattts / channel. [ Roger   Jun 10, 2014 ]
  • I FOUND THAT PAIRED WITH THE CORRECT AMP, THESE SPEAKERS PERFORMED GREAT. IF OVER POWERED SUCH AS WITH ANY SPEAKER THEN YOU HAVE A CHANCE OF BLOWING THEM. FOR THE MONEY THEY SHOULD DO FINE. SET YOUR AMP CORRECTLY AND INSTALLING SOUND DEADNING MATT WILL GREATLY INMPROVE THE SOUND. I HAVE FOUND THAT BY INSTALLING SOUND DEADNER SUCH AS DYNAMAT OR STINGER MAT THAT EVEN A CHEAP SET OF SPEAKERS CAN BE MADE TO SOUND PRETTY GOOD. IF YOU WANT SERIOUS SOUND THEN FOCAL WOULD BE MY CHOICE, BUT I CAN'T AFFORD THOSE SO JVC AND INFINITY WILL HAVE TO DO. GOOD LUCK ! [ DUKE   Jun 10, 2014 ]
  • The bass output is great. Everybody stop and ask what kind of speakers do you have? [ BOYD   Jun 10, 2014 ]
  • Matt, it's all about matching the output per channel on your tuner/amp with the rating of the speaker. Personally I wouldn't run an amp through speakers that is over 80% of the RMS rating of the speaker.... always good to leave a little headroom ! [ Vicki   Jun 10, 2014 ]
  • That helps! Im going to go ahead and get me a pair. Thanks a lot. ~Matt [ Matt Bedo   Jun 10, 2014 ]
  • Matt B, I believe the bass output is decent for the price. However I have two stock door subs in my mustang that compliment these nicely so I've never had them playing without the door subs. I haven't blown the pair I have and they handle blasting music quite well with little to no distortion. Overall, for the price, you can't beat them. Hope this helps, Denver [ Denver   Jun 09, 2014 ]
im a rookie when it comes to this stuff, but do these speakers require an amp to run them? [ Hunter  May 13, 2014 ]
8 answers
  • no ,just a receiver will do the job,of course an amp will give a cleaner richer sound,but a good mid power receiver will give good sound [ KYNDAL A   May 15, 2014 ]
  • No amp needed. They sound good using a 25 watt JVC radio. [ Willard   May 14, 2014 ]
  • It's not necessary to wire to an amp. You can wire to an amp if you like, will sound just fine wiring to the radio. [ Kingston   May 14, 2014 ]
  • no.. [ STEVEN   May 14, 2014 ]
  • Teh amp in your receiver should have enough power to run them. [ JIMMY   May 14, 2014 ]
  • They are capable of being amped for higher output, but I've got them running off my stock amp and it powers them loud enough to hurt my ears with no distortion. 2007 Ford Mustang [ CHRIS R   May 14, 2014 ]
  • Not required no, but I am running a 200 watt 4 channel. with 4 speakers. [ BRIAN   May 14, 2014 ]
  • No, the radio power is good enough. [ DARRIN Q   May 14, 2014 ]
