Bass, power, performance — JBL Power P8652 5"x7"/6"x8" car speakers deliver the whole audio spectrum, from silky lows to clear, taut highs. The Honeycomb-Laminate (HCL) woofer cone consists of two layers of woven glass fiber with an epoxy-coated Nomex honeycomb core. This lightweight and rigid material generates bass with exceptional clarity and low distortion at all volume levels. The Plus One oversized cone design incorporates more surface area than a standard size cone, contributing to greater efficiency and larger output.

The pure titanium tweeters play with minimal distortion at high output levels to keep the treble bright and crisp. You can even rotate the tweeters to direct the sound toward your ears. The woofers' oversized voice coils contribute to increased power handling. Voice-matched external crossovers ensure flawless performance with undeniable accuracy.

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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I put these in the front doors of my 2005 Ford Focus with no problem. I have these running off an Alpine MRP-F450 amplifier (front two channels 70w each) and they explode with dynamic, powerful, clear sound. If you own a Ford vehicle and want fantastic sound you owe it to yourself to give these speakers serious consideration. If the price seems steep try and catch them on sale or as a scratch and dent item. They are worth every penny.

Absolutely no complaints, i have them hooked up to the GTO75.4 II amp and they produce fantastic sound how ever i also have another amp and a sub hooked up which handles all the low notes so i have never heard these speakers play any low notes only highs and mid but the quality is fantastic. deffinately worth it.

expensive but very good

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers are amazing, great bass (for such a small speaker) clean highs, all around clear sound. They really respond to power, I ran them off my head unit for a couple of weeks and they sounded good, but when I installed an amp, they really came alive. Install is slightly complicated by the remote mount crossover, but it's not a big deal.

Product Research


PlusOne HCL Woofers: The JBL Power Series P8652 speakers feature Honeycomb Laminate (HCL) cone woofers. This material consists of two woven glass fiber layers with an epoxy-coated Nomex honeycomb core. This makes the cone exceptionally stiff, yet lightweight. The benefits of HCL woofers include increased efficiency, exceptional midrange clarity and lower distortion at high output levels. The PlusOne woofer cones have more surface area than conventional 5"x7"/6"x8" speakers for increased bass output and increased efficiency.

UniPivot Titanium Tweeters: The speakers have pure-titanium, edge-driven dome tweeters. This style tweeter is similar to those found in high end home audio loudspeakers, and the benefits include reduced distortion at high output levels and superior integration with the mid/woofer. These ratcheting, UniPivot tweeters can be rotated, allowing tweeter direction to be maximized for optimum imaging.

Oversized Voice Coils: The P8652 features a voice coil larger than what is found on most models of the same size. This larger voice coil increases power handling while minimizing distortion.

Spider-Integrated Tinsel Leads:  The spider integrated tinsel leads greatly enhance reliability and eliminate audible tinsel lead slap.

Crossovers: The speakers are equipped with computer-optimized passive outboard crossovers that have been voice-matched to ensure optimum imaging, clarity and detail. The dimensions of the crossovers are: Length=3.085", Width=1.835" Height=1.045, Input wires (20 gauge): 12", Output wires (20 gauge): 20".

Crossover Connections: Each crossover input lead is terminated with bare wire, and the two output leads (one for the woofer and one for the tweeter) are terminated with female quick-slides. The positive woofer lead has a 0.250" female quick-slide and the negative woofer lead has a 0.187" female quick-slide. The positive tweeter lead has a 0.205" female quick-slide and the negative tweeter lead has a 0.110" female quick-slide. These quick-slides connect directly to the woofer and tweeter terminals on each speaker.
