GT7-96 profile

The compact design of the GT7-96 makes it a fit for a wide variety of cars.

A cool upgrade

These GT7-96 6"x9" speakers from JBL have everything you want when shopping for a car speaker: an advanced design, quality materials, a cool look, and a practical price tag. But in the end, it's the sound they make that matters, and true to their iconic heritage, these JBLs deliver.

How do they do it?

This is a whopper of a speaker. Patented Plus One™ architecture expands the surface area of the big oval polypropylene woofer, so you'll enjoy impressive bass. An edge-driven dome tweeter and supertweeter handle a wider range of frequencies to create a seamless transition between the midrange and high frequencies.

JBL built these GT7 speakers to handle up to 70 watts RMS, so they'll perform spectacularly with an aftermarket radio or amp, but with a design geared toward maximum efficiency, you'll get superior performance even from a factory radio. Grilles are included for a custom installation.

Highlights:

  • 6"x9" 3-way speakers (pair)
  • polypropylene Plus One™ woofer cone with foam surround
  • edge-driven dome PEI tweeter plus supertweeter
  • power range: 2-70 watts RMS (210 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 40-21,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 94 dB
  • top-mount depth: 2-15/16"
  • grilles included
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

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.

Product Research

Features

Plus One Woofer Cones: The Plus One speaker cones offer more surface area than other speakers that fit in the same size opening. This is accomplished by using a new basket design and hi-roll surround. The result is greater bass output and an increase in efficiency.

Tweeters: Each speaker has an edge-driven dome tweeter and dome super tweeter, both made of PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide). PEI is a polymer film, capable of producing a wide soundstage.

very great sounding speakers.

Written By Nick B., Salisbury, MD on Monday, February 23, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I really love these speakers, just the right bass and treble. Thinking of switching all other speakers to JBL brand.

Pros: Really great speakers

Cons: None

Big upgrade from factory speakers easy to install

Pros: Good sound full range

Cons: Needs more than normal volume to really sound great

Great Sound, Great Fit

Written By PeanutsRU, S. Tahoe, CA on Thursday, January 08, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Got these speakers to replace the stock front door units in a 2015 Outback. Speakers fit into existing openings and with the supplied mounting kit, pretty much bolted right up. The sound quality is head and shoulders above the stock speakers. I just disconnected the stock tweaters.

Pros: Easy to install, great sound.

Great highs and mids - not built for bass

Written By MikeL, Michigan on Thursday, January 08, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased these speakers based on other customer reviews stating that they had very good bass. After installation (with Pioneer MVH-X370BT), the highs and mids sound great, but does lack a deep thumping bass. The bass is there but sounds a bit flat. If you listen to music with a lot of bass, I would not recommend these speakers unless you have a sub. Overall, I am happy with the speakers, but if I had to do it again, I would purchase a different set of 6x9.

Pros: Great highs and mids

Cons: Lacks a deep bass

Great Sound

Stock speaker replacement

Written By Alan, Thompson ct 06277 on Thursday, January 01, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased these 6x9 speakers to replace the factory speakers in my nissan titan. First time purchasing any JBL speaker and I'm glad I did. The highs are crisp and clear. The midrange comes thru incredibly and the bass while not deep is quality without speaker popping or fuzzy sounding. But hey there 6x9's not 12 inch subwoofers! Would defiantly purchase JBL speakers again!

Pros: Clean highs Great midrange

Cons: Not the best bass but more than adequate.

Great

Great purchase

Written By Mark D, Wheaton, il on Friday, September 19, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product, great sound in my 2012 corolla. I have the 6" in the front door and 6x9 in the rear, and the sound is great. Good depth from the 6x9's in both high and low frequency. Would buy them again.

Pros: Good response, good highs and lows. Great sounding all around.

Cons: Factory stereo/head unit doesn't push enough power to get out the full quality of speakers. Had to custom install and fit the speakers into the rear panel.

Great Sound!

Written By Anonymous, Morris, IN on Thursday, September 18, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great sound compared to the factory speakers they replaced. Crutchfield makes it so easy to install with the free hardware and instructions!

Pros: Price and sound quality

Cons: Would probably need a sub to complete the sound

Nice upgrade

Written By Steve R, Somewhere west of Puget Sound on Wednesday, September 17, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great improvement on the factory speakers on a 2015 Forester.

Pros: Nice sound, easy install.

Cons: With the included brackets the depth was close to the window glass.

JBL GT7-96

Written By SteveC, Las Vegas on Tuesday, September 02, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have like JBL for a long time and these are just another reason to keep using them. I installed them in the back dash of a 2010 Toyota Corolla with the GT7-6s in the front doors. As I have come to expect with JBL,they had great, clear and crisp sound. As a factory replacement they work great, but they are left wanting more power. Adding an amplifier would only make a great sound better.

Pros: Clear and Crisp Sound

Great Upgrade

Written By Brad, Charlotte, NC on Monday, August 18, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed these speakers in my 2013 Toyota Prius III. The standard speakers are horrible as far as build quality. The magnet is glued to the back and is about 3 times smaller than anything I've seen. The sound was just OK but a little muddy. The JBL speakers made a world of difference but they didn't have much to prove against the stock speakers. The bass is solid and the midrange and high range are crisp and clear. If you have the standard paper speakers in your Toyota, you can't go wrong with these. I have yet to install the rear 6.6" JBL's but I'm sure the sound will be even better. Thanks to Crutchfield for providing the accessories and instructions to make the install easy.

Pros: Great Sound, Build Quality

Cons: None so far

Just bought a pair of these on an advisor recommendation and replaced the OEMs on a 1992 Honda Accord. Great sound - a ton better then the originals. You won't go wrong with these. Easy to install on the rear deck.
