Our take on the JVC CS-V6948

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-V6948 6"x9" speakers feature a durable woofer cone made from a mixture of Aramid, carbon fiber, and mica, along with separate tweeter, supertweeter, and midrange drivers 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.

Installed to replace my factory speajees on my 06 Accord coupe. Huge improvement over the factory speakers, but, in my own error, way too much treble off of the back glass. Great for a truck!

Great Speakers

Written By eicht, Iowa on Tuesday, March 04, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Just like the Kicker's I put in the rear of my Chrysler 300, these JVC speakers are a great improvement over stock. But, just like the Kicker's, I had to drill out one of the four holes on each side. I was hoping they would bolt right in. Definitely improved the sound across the entire spectrum.
Pros:
Great improvement over the stock speakers.
Cons:
Had to drill one of the four holes to install. This is the only reason i gave them a 4 instead of a 5.

JVC CS-V6948 6x9 4-way

Written By Lilphife001, Vineland, NJ on Friday, December 06, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers are phenomenal I upgraded from my stock 6x9's and the difference is night and day. I don't really use these for bass but it does has tight bass response for the mid bass that I do use it for. The vocals and high frequencies are piercing loud they sound absolutely amazing in fact i'm going to replace Sony XS-GT1638F 6 1/2 3 way speakers I put in my front doors because these JVC's drown them out all while receiving the same power 20w rms from my JVC HDR40. To get the most out of these speakers you will want a head unit with 7 band eq or more or a amp on them but you will like them and for the price you can't beat them.
Pros:
Clarity, Easy to install, Price, Overall Sound Quality
Cons:
None

2005 Civic Coupe - Special Edition

Written By Anonymous, Longwood, FL on Tuesday, November 12, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Description Stated they would fit however only 3 of the four screw holes lined up and the magnet did not clear the cross member trunk rods so I had to modify (bend them). Sound is avg to slightly better avg than expected however the install issues cause me to drop the overall rating a notch. For the price they are a good upgrade over stock though. As an FYI the Head unit is an aftermarket Sony. Very pleased with Crutchfields phone support.
Pros:
Good upgrade to stock, pricepoint is good.
Cons:
Did not fit as advertised. Slight loss of clarity and distortion at higher volumes (But for the price not bad).

Excellent factory speaker replacements

Written By Tyler, Lansing, MI on Wednesday, June 05, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I installed 2 of these to replace my 2007 Chevy Cobalt's original speakers and they sound much better. There is almost no distortion at higher volumes. The speakers these replaced looked like they were made of cardboard so of course these will sound much better.
Pros:
sound quality, bass
Cons:
none
