JVC's Arsenal component speakers bring out the subtle details in your music, yet offer the high power-handling capability that you need in a high-performance system. Cast aluminum frames use JVC's own heat transfer technology to keep things running cool even under the most extreme conditions.

Hemp/glass composite cones
The Arsenal CS-ARS650 component system features a low-profile 6-3/4" woofer that fits into a wide variety of speaker openings, including many 6-1/2" locations. JVC combines hemp and glass fibers together to make a strong, lightweight woofer cone with natural high-frequency roll-off that offers a very organic, mellow sound. A Santoprene rubber surround keeps cone movement under control when you turn up the volume.

Titanium tweeters edged with silk
Each titanium dome tweeter is edged in silk for brilliant high notes that are never harsh, allowing long-term listening without ear fatigue. The crossover maintains a perfect balance between woofer and tweeter for unbelievable realism and distinct stereo imaging, with cool illumination that complements the speakers' styling.

Note: JVC describes this model as a 6-1/2" speaker. Most manufacturers designate this same frame size as a 6-3/4" speaker. For simplicity's sake we list it as a 6-3/4" speaker.

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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have a 1997 GMC K2500 Suburban that had a component woofer and
tweeter setup in the front doors so I bought these as replacements. They
sound great, I was hoping for a bit more bass but I guess I'll just have to
break down and buy some Subs! The install was pretty simple, the
woofers slipped into the factory opening, I just had to drill new mounting
holes, the tweeters didn't look like they were going to fit into the factory
location without major modification so I just went with the sail panel inside
the door behind the mirror. I mounted the crossover just below the arm
rest mount and between the door panel and the door. The (2) Crutchfield
supplied harnesses are made to connect straight to a regular non-
component speaker so I had to butt splice them to some of the spare
speaker wire to feed the crossover. I plan getting another set for the rear
doors also.

Product Research


Construction: The silk-edged 1" Titanium dome tweeter has a neodymium magnet. The woofer cone is glass fiber-hemp and has a Santoprene rubber surround. The woofer magnet is also neodymium and the woofer basket is die cast aluminum.

Woofer Size: The woofers in this component set fit both 6-3/4" and 6-1/2" openings. The screw holes on the frame follow the standard 6-3/4" pattern. In order to install them in 6-1/2" speaker openings you must either drill new screw holes or use the included multi-hole adapter rings. The adapter rings allow installation in many standard 6-1/2" applications, Ford 4-hole 6-1/2" applications, and specialized 6-3/4" applications.

Crossovers: The outboard crossovers have jumpers offering three tweeter output options; flat, -3 dB, and -6 dB. The inputs and outputs are screw terminals that will accept bare wire up to 12 gauge. The included woofer and tweeter wires have quick slides installed. Each crossover also has set screw terminals for a 12 volt DC input which powers three internal blue LEDs. The 12 volt illumination input is optional, it doesn't affect the operation of the crossover.
