Our take on the JVC CS-V6938

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 Series speakers have you covered. The CS-V6938 6"x9" speakers feature a durable woofer cone made from a mixture of Aramid, carbon fiber, and mica, along with a 13/16" PEI tweeter and 2-5/8" 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 included.

Good sounding speakers

Written By Chip, Browns Mills, NJ on Saturday, September 13, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Used as a replacement for factory speakers that were falling apart. Matched up w/ a JVC head unit; sounds great. I have these crossed over, so I can't comment on bass response, but all the highs and mids are crystal clear. Speakers look great as well; too bad they're hidden behind a door panel.
Pros:
Direct replacement for my Nissan Xterra, aside from having to solder the new wire leads on. Great mid and high response, especially for the price.
Cons:
None so far!

Terrific Speakers!

Written By FlacLover, Allentown, Pa on Wednesday, September 03, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I needed new rear deck speakers after my son blew one of them out in my '04 Olds Alero. I chose these because the Alero has bi-amp outputs (low frequency outputs and high frequency outputs) It was a simple matter of cutting the tweeter wires off the posts and soldering them to the wires from the amp, and then connecting the other wires with the posts. Mounting them was also very easy, although you won't be able to use the covers that come with these, as the rear deck has built in covers. The entire procedure took one hour from start to finish, and the results were very much worth the price and time put in.
Pros:
1. Very good price for the sound quality 2. Solid construction. 3. Smooth/balanced sound from the lowest lows and the highs extend beyond the stock speakers.
Cons:
None at this time.

JVC CS-V6938

Written By JulioI, Cabo Rojo, PR on Sunday, August 17, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Installed as part of a full factory replacement on a 2014 Nissan Sentra. Much cleaner sound than the factory speakers at all volume levels.
Pros:
Good overall sound at an affordable price.
Cons:
Unfortunately there was no MasterSheet for my car so I had to look elsewhere for instructions on how to disassemble my car's interior, a not so difficult but lenghty process. The speakers fit on the rear deck but the screw holes fell just outside of the speaker frame. I used silicone adhesive to hold the speaker in place and screws with big washers on the perimeter of the speaker and it worked perfectly.

I purchased these to replace the front door factory speakers in my 2009 Tacoma. What a difference!! My music is alive again, nice and clear and crisp. The most notable difference for me was the increase in midrange. I can clearly hear what is being sung. And as always crutchfield is the best!!

Great Speakers!

Written By Pete, Toms River, NJ on Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These are great sounding speakers and a great addition to the new in-dash unit. While installation should be easy in many cars, it was VERY difficult installing these in the rear of a 2001 Honda Civic EX. The entire rear seat Cushions and back part) as well as the passenger side panels had to be removed to gain access to the rear speakers. But once installed it was worth it as they are a great improvement over the OEM speakers.
Pros:
Great sound
Cons:
Difficult installation in my application (but not in most).

Honda Civic upgrade

Written By SteveS, Seattle, WA on Tuesday, May 27, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I replaced the cracked rear deck speakers on my 2002 Honda Civic with JVC CS-V6938 6"x9" 3-way car speakers. The results were amazing. I didn't know what I was missing. The install went easily and took about an hour. Crutchfield,sent the adapters to the speakers from the special Honda plugs - for free. I should have done this years ago. The Honda speakers install under the rear deck in the 2002 Civic. The instructions from Crutchfield were good. This took about an hour. I did find a couple of videos online with tips that helped me, I'm a visual learner. This was a very good investment.
Pros:
3 way speakers cover the full spectrum of sounds, making the mid ranges pop out and can understand the song words better. Much better bass than factory speakers.
Cons:
None, except now I am considering changing out the front speakers.

These speakers look and sound good. The mounting to the rear deck of a 09 sentra was easy and a good fit. Clear mid and high range performance and bass is ok. A subwoofer with an amp would be a good addition to complete a great sounding system. Good sound for the price.

Easy install and good looks and sound

JVC CS-V6938 Are Great

Written By Anonymous, Barrie, Ontario on Saturday, April 12, 2014
 
These are a great set if speakers and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to replace their stock speakers. Originally had them in my 00 Oldsmobile Intrigue and now I've put them in my 12 Impala. They was no modifications whatsoever and they directly fit in. These speakers might look tall by they are pretty shallow. They have great high, mid and lows.

Excellent bass, mids, and highs

Written By Patrick, State Center, IA on Sunday, April 06, 2014
 
Generally speaking, deck or enclosure-mounted 6x9's give more bass response than 5x7 / 6x8's do. That said, the rear deck-mounted factory 6x9's in my wife's cavalier were pretty much shot, so I picked a pair of these up. What a difference. The highs are crisp and easily audible with low input. Mids are also amazing and full. But the big surprise is the bass. With a new JVC head unit and no amp, these things actually put out bass that you can feel, and the quality is amazing as well. Very clear. My only gripe is that now I have to buy front speakers too, because these sound so good, you can't even hear the front oem's! Great buy.
Pros:
Excellent clarity, great highs, great mids, greata lows, no distortion at higher power levels.
Cons:
None

JVC CS-V6938 in 2000 Grand AM SE Sedan

Written By Mark W, Calhoun, GA on Sunday, March 16, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Good sounding speakers for the price, frequency range more than enough for the head unit we're using them with, but there were some modifications necessary to make them fit into the plastic housing on the rear deck. The stock speaker housing had four clips to hold the speaker frame in place, and these had to be removed and sanded flat to make sure the speaker would be seated on the silicone seal. This means using the supplied screws to secure the speaker to the stock housing. Also, these screws were a little long and had to be cut down slightly in order for the housing to sit flush on the rear deck. None of this was difficult or took long to accomplish, and the resulting sound performance is really good.
Pros:
Good sound, reasonable price, and just short of plug-&-play in our Grand AM.
Cons:
Some minor mods necessary for them to fit securely.

JVC CS-V6938

Written By Richard, DFW Texas on Tuesday, February 11, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Purchases for 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT1. I put these speakers in the rear dead to replace the aging (original stock) speakers. Installation of the speakers was easy but GM's design for the rear deck on this model forced me to remove the side trim panels to raise the rear deck (grill is part of the deck and is not detachable). On the stock speaker mount brackets, I had to break off all of the clips that held in the original speaker (original speaker is not screwed/bolted down) and screw down these JVCs

These speakers are being run off of the original stock radio atm. They work well and I enjoy sound from the back of the car once again.
Pros:
Fit my car stock
Cons:
None at the moment.

Ok speakers, spend a little more if you can.
Pros:
If you are on a budget these are decent
Cons:
Maybe I haven't mastered the stereo yet but I find the base 'buzzes' and vocals are low .. tirelessly tried adjusting but can't seem to find the right setting. My stock speakers in my Toyota Camry seemed to handle the bass much better.

Good, but ugly, speakers

Written By TAnk, Astoria, OR on Sunday, August 18, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Picked these up because they were on sale, and cheap.

They aren't terrible, but not stellar either. They sound better than factory, and better than some other like-priced speakers.

These are good basic speakers that will work fine for most people. Not going to blow your mind, but not going to leave you feeling cheated, either.
Pros:
Sound decent. Good overall value if you are on a budget, or just like to save money.
Cons:
This is just me, but these are ugly speakers. Fine if you hide them. Also, the included grills are worthless- no protection. If you have kids, make sure you can mount these in the factory spots behind some real grills.
