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-VS608 6-1/2"" component speaker system features a durable woofer cone made from a mixture of Aramid, carbon fiber, and mica. JVC uses a tough cloth/rubber surround to support the woofer cone, so you'll enjoy strong bass.  

You'll mount the separate 1" balanced dome PEI tweeter up closer to your ears for better stereo separation and detail, while the included 2-way crossover network directs the right frequencies to the woofer and tweeter for maximum performance. These speakers will give you a solid boost in sound quality, even when powered by your factory radio. Grilles are included.

Product Highlights:

  • package includes two 6-1/2" woofers, two tweeters, and two crossovers
  • carbon mica woofer with cloth and rubber hybrid surround
  • 1" PEI balanced dome tweeter
  • 2-way crossover network
  • power range: 8-60 watts RMS (300 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 45-28,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 87 dB
  • depth: 2-1/4"
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Why install component speakers?

A component speaker system gives you the best possible performance from your car audio system. A system consists of separate woofers, tweeters, and crossovers, each designed to cover one specific range of frequencies. As separate components, the woofer can move freely to deliver more powerful performance, while the tweeter can be custom-mounted in a better spot up closer to your ears, revealing a whole new world of detail. Separate crossovers are far superior to the simple filters wired into full-range speakers, so the components work together for smoother, more focused sound.

Product Research


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

Tweeters: The tweeters are PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide) balanced-domes; PEI is a polymer film that produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging. A semi-dome tweeter has a dome placed inside a cone. Balanced dome tweeters are semi-dome tweeters with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the tweeter.

Tweeter Mounting Options: The tweeters come with brackets to allow flush mounting or angled surface mounting (approximately 30°):

  Flush Mount Angled Surface Mount
Mounting Height 0.3" 1.375"
Mounting Depth 0.875" 0.3" (screw depth)
Frame Diameter 2.577" N/A
Cutout Diameter 1.983" N/A
Frame Width N/A 1.80"
Frame Depth N/A 1.84"

Crossovers: The 2-way crossovers have input and output wires attached. The woofer has quick slide terminals, but the wire has no terminals attached, so item number 120FQS10PK can be added to provide the needed terminals. The crossovers' dimensions are:

  • Length: 4-1/8"
  • Width: 1-13/16"
  • Height: 7/8"

Woofer Mounting: In addition to fitting standard 6-1/2 and 4-hole 6-1/2 applications, the woofer also has a standard 6-3/4 bolt pattern. However, if mounted in a 6-3/4 location the holes for the smaller pattern create an air leak, which must be sealed using a speaker baffle, or something similar.

Pros: Aggressive look and had goo sound quality

Great pair of speakers.fit into the stock holes with a little modifying.

Pros: Look and sound great.good up grade from stock.

Cons: Tweeters are a little over powering.had to adjust the settings on the stereo.


Written By Nick R-S, Owatonna, MN on Monday, December 16, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The 6.5 fit well in my 98 Subaru Forester and sounds rather good, especially with the lack of a tweeter included on the woofer and has crisp mids and some good bass response, enough to make my plastic interior rattle. On to the tweeter, this is why I would think twice on recommending this product. I was told I needed a component system, whereas I didn't because my stock tweeter and woofer already run on separate channels. So the crossover was a bust, and the tweeter wouldn't fit, unless I would like to either let it just sit in there or glue it onto the old housing. Also, when installed the tweeter does too good of a job, at least to my standards, but they may be biased as I reach more for thump in speakers, rather than highs

Pros: Woofer offers great sound for JVC and no dome tweeter

Cons: Tweeter doesn't fit, squeaks, and crossover useless

Great Sound

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed in the front doors of my 1996 Chevy crew cab. Install went great for the 6 1/2". the tweeters wouldn't fit in the factory spot had to leave the factory tweeters in place. Great sound Very happy with these. I'll have to modify the door panels to get the tweeters to fit. Ran out of time will install the later.

Pros: Easy install, Great sound

Cons: I wish the tweeters had removable grills to fit my application.

Easy to install, no extra holes to drill to make it fit, ( 2005 Chevy Silverado ) snaps and plugs into place, sounds great with my unit. Fast service from Crutchfield. What more do you want?

Pros: Easy to install sounds great.

Sound great!

Written By Capsin, Jacksonville, FL on Saturday, October 19, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I gave this 3 stars because it said this was a direct fit replacement, but in order for me to get the tweeters in I had to completely go on my own to mount it the ways offered were definitely not plug & play it required some ingenuity to make sure it cleared the grill was pointed up and was firmly mounted. This was in an '05 Avalanche.

Pros: Sound Great.

Okay for $50, not work $99

Written By Anonymous, Oakland, CA on Saturday, September 14, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are not bad speakers for $50 if you're getting them with the JVC head unit deal - they're by far the cheapest component system Crutchfield has if you look at it that way. If you're not getting them through that deal however, there are much better options in the $99 price range. The Alpine SPS-610 is a 2-way, not a component system, but it blows these speakers away in terms of quality, and it's also $99.

Would recommend. Easy install. I wish the leads were a little longer. But easy enough to fix.

Pros: Nice sound. Good price.

Cons: Longer leads needed.

For the price they are better than factory but Don't waste your money if you are looking for sound quality. Get JBL's if they wil fit in your ride. Trust me.


Written By Anonymous, Decatur IL on Saturday, June 01, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Overall, I really like the JVC CS-VS608's. They seem to be a well made speaker and sound very good for a component set in this price range. The high's are crisp and the mid to low notes are represented surprisingly well. If your on a budget and wanting a component set that sounds good, can handle some good power, and is very reasonably priced... look no further.

Pros: Very Affordable, Easy installation ( THE TWEETERS OFFER NUMEROUS MOUNTING OPTIONS) Very nice sound

Cons: I wasn't pleased with the crossover. The crossover works fine. I just wasnt pleased with the the size or length of the pre terminated wires. I amped this set up and used the proper gauge wire for the amp but had to drop down two wire sizes to mate with the wiring coming out of the crossover. All crossovers should have terminals so you can choose the proper guage of speaker wire for your application, as well as the proper length wire to avoid cutting and splicing to the crossover

The bass is a little weak but for the price these speakers are a good deal

Pros: The highs are good

Cons: Bass is a little week. Installation guide could be better


Written By sb, Port Angeles, WA on Tuesday, May 21, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Pictures on box, no instructions. Had no idea what the 2-way crossover network was for. My existing system had separate wiring for the tweeter and woofer so I left it out, looks like it is used if you only have a right/left channel wire that needs to split for tweeter/woofer connections. Also, the extra accessory included to connect the speakers was smashed. Was able to remove one from the old speaker and use it instead. Sound is great though, happy with them.

Pros: Sound, mounting bracket included snapped right into place after trimming off the extra tabs not required from my application.

Cons: Instructions and broken speaker wiring harness.

Great price, Sounds great.

Written By tomh., Ohio on Thursday, May 16, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great price, Sounds great. Installed in 2000 Chevy Silverado with factory radio/CD.

Pros: Sounds great. Seperate tweeters & crossovers allow for a customized installation.

Cons: Customized installation not exactly plug n play. But not difficult with a little patience and experimentation.

Great Speakers / Great Price

Written By SMB, Highland, NY on Saturday, April 27, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased these speakers for a 2012 Honda Fit. They sound great in a small car and they work great with the JVC 845BT Arsenal receiver. These speakers were installed with a JVC 845BT Arsenal receiver with no additional amp. One tip for installation...by extra door panel clips before you start installation. Removal always breaks existing clips.

Pros: Great sound and tweeters are great.

Cons: None.

Perfect fit and easy install

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The speakers are awesome, highs are clear and sound great. The mid range is out standing, vocals and instrumental solos are unbelievable. I put two sets of these in my quad cab, with a sub I already had. Best system I have ever owned. I would say buy these over a 2 or 3 way speaker. Expescialy if you are the type if person that is very picky about your sound. Not to mention if you get them from crutchfield they come with all brackets and wiring harness you need for installation. Crutchfields customers service is how it should be. Way to go guys on setting the standard.

Pros: Speakers sound great! Easy install, with the directions and equipment they give you. Anyone can install them! Don't waste your money at any other place.

Cons: Yeah... Cons.... Nope don't have any of those.

Matthew, Wow, I would like to apologize for not getting back to you until now. I was planning on responding when I had more time and guess your email got overlooked. You have probably made a decision by now but, on the off chance you haven't... I will give you my two cents. Yes, these will work without an amp. Your factory stereo should power them fine. Although... you will not be using these speakers to their full and intended capabilities. Obviously, it would take an aftermarket head unit and an external amp to enjoy the components to the fullest. If your just looking to replace a blown set of speakers with no future upgrades, I would pass on these and just go with a set of coax. If you have plans to upgrade further in the future and need speakers now and don't have the funds for it all... this would be a smart way to go. Hope this helps and again I apologize for not responding sooner. Brian [ BRIAN K  Mar 01, 2014 ]
Yes it is, they work great [ JAMES  Jan 19, 2014 ]
I think your factory radio should be enough for these speakers. I got them as replacement speakers for my Chevy Trailblazer, and they are perfect for me. Nice highs and plenty of bass. I was satisfied. [ STEVEN V  Jan 19, 2014 ]
I put these in a Chevy Silverado. My factory paper speakers rattled and buzzed. So I just wanted to enjoy music again. With a factory radio and no amp, these speakers sound pretty darn good. The separate tweeters really enhanced the sound. They were easy to install and economical. [ THOMAS  Jan 19, 2014 ]
it should be, but i also put in the jvc kwr500 head unit and that made a huge difference. these speakers are great sounding and loud just depends on what the factory system output is. they were easy to install also. [ ANGELA  Jan 19, 2014 ]
Hi Matthew, I can't honestly answer the question as I replaced my factory radio at the same time I replaced the factory speakers with these. They don't require a whole lot of power to use them so I can't imagine why you couldn't. The separate tweeters are amazing. I purchased the Pioneer FH-X700BT ($150) to replace my factory radio and a set of Kicker 40CS654 6.5" Coaxial Speakers in the rear. This system sounds great even at low volume. [ Andrew  Jan 19, 2014 ]
I have a nice JVC head unit running them with 45 a channel. Sounds great!!! [ THOMAS J  Jan 19, 2014 ]
Matt, If you are looking for a good quality sound upgrade over your stock system, this should work great. I installed it on the stock stereo on my sisters 2008 vw rabbit without an amp and the sound impressed me. When the time comes to upgrade the speakers on my car, I plan on installing this kit. However, If you are looking for some serious bass or something along those lines, then this might not be the kit for you. Hope this helps. -Chris [ CHRISTOPHER L  Jan 19, 2014 ]
For details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle. [ Krissy  Jan 19, 2014 ]  Staff
