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.
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.
Put 4 of these in my expedition. They sound great. Handle high volume very well.
I now have a bass , mid and high in my truck. Replaced 4 factory speakers with these. great sound.
Pros: Great sound, easy install
replaced stock speakers with these jvc speakers and a jvc head unit because of the sale they had buy unit and one set of speakers get the other free .
Pros: sound is great much better than the stock system for the money it was a great deal.
I replaced the front door speakers in a 2002 ford escape and liked them so much I replaced the rear door speakers with a set
Pros: perfect fit, made the factory radio sound better
I was repacing my head unit so i would have BT, jvc was running a special, buy specific head units along with 2 sets of speakers and the second set was free. So I grabbed 2 of these and figured buy one get one would be a nice way to upgrade the speakers in my 1999 ranger. After the install of the head unit and just the front speakers, well lets just say a marginal differance if at all. When I faded to the rear stock speakers they had more bass while close to the same overall sound (highs,mids). The only nod I would give these jvc's was in the clarity that was marginally better. Overall no way i buy again unless my stock speakers are blown then i would consider these only at buy one get one pricing or deep discount. I'd much rather try another similar priced set from pioneer (ive had much better experiances with) or any brand for that matter.
Pros: not much
Cons: sounds like stock
Sounded awful compared to stock speakers in my 2006 Mercury Monterey. I tried with both stock stereo and Jvc kw-v50bt and same results No bass at all mids are muddy and highs are so so at best. I tried 1 side at a time and adjusted fade and balance to compare and the stock speakers had sounds that were completely missing from the Jvc's. They may be tolerable with an amp and subs but I doubt it. Only purchased because of buy one get one free and still to much.
Pros: Fit in a 2006 Mercury Monterey with no alterations.
Cons: Sound awful compared to stock 2 way speakers.
Great sound. Fit perfectly. Night and day difference from the stock speakers. Delivery was just as promised
Pros: Installed in twenty minutes
Great speakers for the high notes. Bass needs a little help. Nothing that a subwoofer can't solve. Great value.
Pros: High notes
The product arrived on the day it said it would, in two days. It came with all the parts i needed, I did not have to buy anything extra. The price was great. I would purchase anytime through Crutchfield. they stand behind there products.
I replaced the front speakers on my wife's 2005 Ford Escape. These were an easy replacement and a perfect fit. The sound might be cleaner than stock, or it could be my perception after changing them out. They certainly don't sound worse. The price was right when I purchased her stereo and I think it was a smart move.
Pros: Easy install Great sound
Put 4 of these in a Ford F-150 4 door; old speakers were buzzing and flat; these sound great for my purposes.
Pros: Perfect fit, great price, sounds good
Cons: None that I can think of . . . .
Fit perfect in my 2006 F150 doors. Sounds so clear compared to the factory speakers.
Pros: Clear sounding.
Excellent speakers highly recommend
Pros: Exact match, perfect fit, great sound
Great speakers, referred by my dad and he was right! I would definitely get another pair in the future!
Pros: Great sound, great bass, easy to install
hey, you can't beat these speakers. They're well priced and work perfectly. Nice quality sound.
Pros: inexpensive good build quality
Cons: none that I can find
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.
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.
Speaker blown on install
Pros: Cost, crisp highs
Cons: No bass at all
Excellent speakers for the money. Good fidelity, low power requirements, drop-in fit.
Pros: Good fidelity, low power requirements, drop-in fit.
These speakers are great speakers for the price!! They hits the lows pretty well and have a crisp high sound
Pros: Easy instal and good quality and great price
Cons: I haven't found any at this point
nice bass with crisp highs without boomy sound.
Pros: easy to install (especially with the Crutchfield pigtails that adapt mazda to these speakers)
Nice speaker for the $$. Definite upgrade from stock speakers.
Pros: Good sound, easy install with Crutchfield diagrams and wire adapters.
Great easy upgrade takes only minutes to do both doors (F350)
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
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
Easy to install with great sound quality
Pros: Great sound quality
Cons: No cons great speakers
Great speakers! I replaced the stock speakers in a 2002 F350 crew cab and the sound is a night and day difference I finally hear the highs and mids clearly without being overwhelming.
Pros: Great Price and Sound
Nice speakers, fit well into the doors of my 2001 Super Duty'
Pros: Perfect match for the JVC 50 watt head unit, sound good, fit good.
Put these in my 2003 F-150 Crew Cab. Piece of cake. Matched it with my JVC KW-XR810 unit----PERFECT! (all 4)
Pros: Sound is Fantastic. Installs easily. Double check your wiring as always. These are way better than the factory speakers.
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
Cons: The rim shroud is only stuck on. The screws push it off the speaker during install.
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.
Pros: Easy to install
Sounds way better than my stock speakers!
Cons: Doesn't make my truck any faster :)
I am totally astonished at the quality of sound. The highs and midranges are crystal clear. The base is terrific and pronounced. .No distortion with my unit maxed out. I didn't think Automotive sound could be any better.
Pros: Clean sound, Nice and clear highs and midrange. Great bass
very satisfied with my purchase. good clean highs and mids
Pros: excellent sound ,very easy install
Cons: does need a powered sub to go along with them, so i guess thats not a con,cause now i get to get me a infinity powered subwoofer
Good sounding speakers. Would like to get an amp hooked to them thoug.
Pros: Easy to install
Good speakers installed this in my John Deere tractor with new radio.
Simply AWESOME!!!! Thank you to Rusty for telling me about these! '98 Ford Ranger and did not want to spend to much money. Saved a bunch of money and they sound great with only power coming from my Alpine deck I bought!
Pros: Great sound without an amp!

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 ]
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 ]
