At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
JL Audio StealthMod System: The StealthMod system has been thoroughly
tested and engineered by JL Audio's Stealthbox development team and offers
dramatic improvements in low-frequency extension and quality, significantly
greater clean output capability, better imaging and better-balanced
high-frequency response than the factory system. The difference is most
impressive with the top down as the additional power on the front speaker system
really helps overcome road and wind noise so that you can hear your favorite
music in all its glory.
Vehicle Compatibility: This particular StealthMod package has been
designed for 2011-Up Chevrolet Camaro Convertibles. It will not fit the Camaro
Coupe. Please consult the
Crutchfield Car Selector to see if your vehicle is compatible.
System Components: Building on the outstanding performance of the
Stealthbox for the Camaro Convertible, JL Audio has added a 700W XD system
amplifier to power the Stealthbox and their C3 components that replace the
factory speakers in the front doors of the Camaro. Filters are also provided to
modify the crossover point of the factory tweeters for better system
performance. The factory system continues to power the rear speakers. The
supplied HD-RLC Remote Level Control can be mounted in the front of the vehicle
to be used as an easily accessible subwoofer level control.
Dual 10" Woofers (10W1v2.4): Two 10", 4Ω
JL Audio W1v2 subwoofers are loaded in this sealed enclosure and wired in
parallel inside the box for a 2Ω load. Each
W1v2 woofer features an injection-molded, metallic-finish polypropylene cone
woofer with a butyl rubber surround for added durability, woofer excursion, and
- Surround Stress Relief: By creating a radius feature on
the edge of the cone, stress is relieved from the surround material at
maximum forward excursion, resulting in longer life and more consistent
- Interlocking Cone & Dust Cap: The W1v2's utilize a dust
cap that is not just glued, but also interlocks with features molded into
the cone body for a tight snap-fit. This creates a more rigid cone assembly
and a more reliable dust cap attachment.
- Dynamic Motor Analysis (DMA): DMA is JL Audio's
proprietary method aimed at improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of
DMA optimization, W1v2 motors remain linear in motor force over a very long
range of excursion, and also maintain a highly stable fixed magnetic field
in the gap over a wide power range. The result is vastly reduced distortion,
faithfully reproduced transients, and tight, clean, articulate bass.
- Floating Cone Attachment Method (FCAM): JL Audio's
patented FCAM technology is an innovative method of bonding the
surround/cone assembly to the voice coil/spider assembly. This assembly
technique ensures proper surround geometry in the assembled speaker for
better excursion control and dynamic voice coil alignment.
- Vented Reinforcement Collar: The Vented Reinforcement
Collar (VRC) is a composite structure that addresses two issues related to
- Stress Relief: By reinforcing the critical junction
between the cone, voice coil and spider, the VRC greatly reduces
failures due to glue breakdown or material weakness. It does this by
greatly increasing adhesive contact area and providing stress relief to
the spider material at excursion extremes
- Air Flow: The VRC also features slots that
facilitate air flow directly onto the voice coil windings. This reduces
thermal compression effects and enhances reliability
- Insert Molded Suspension/Coil/Terminal Sub-Assembly:
The W1v2 features a unique spider, coil and terminal subassembly which is
assembled prior to installation in the speaker frame for optimum alignment
and glue-joint integrity. This type of assembly ensures precise lead wire
length, lead wire entry and exit angles; and coil to spider
- Elevated Frame Cooling System: The elevated frame
design of the W1v2 delivers cool air through slots directly above the
top-plate to the voice coil of the speaker. This not only enhances power
handling, but also sound quality by minimizing dynamic parameter shifts and
6.75" Component Speakers (C3-650): The JL Audio Evolution C3-600 convertible component
system includes 6-1/2" woofers with injection-molded polymer frames, mineral
filled polypropylene cones, butyl rubber surrounds, ferrite magnets, and 1.2"
voice coils with Kapton formers. In the center of each cone is a phase plug; the
phase plug can be removed and the tweeter mounted in its place to create a
coaxial speaker. The 1" silk dome tweeters are Ferro fluid cooled and use
neodymium magnets. Silk is lightweight and great for high frequency extension
and efficiency. It is also designed for durability in the extreme automotive
environment. Flush mount and surface mount housings are included, along with
fixtures to coaxially mount the tweeters to the woofers. The C3 tweeters mount
coaxially inside the C3 woofer cones, while your Camaro's factory tweeters get
their crossovers modified. The crossover network
has an electronic tweeter protection circuit built in; it monitors the current
and disconnects the tweeter when it senses and overload. The circuit
automatically resets once the overload is removed.
5-Channel Amplifier (XD700/5): The JL Audio XD700/5 is a five-channel,
class-D amplifier utilizing NexD ultra-high speed switching technology to
deliver outstanding fidelity and efficiency. The 5-channel amplifier is
configured at 200 watts RMS x 2 bridged (at 4Ω)
+ 300 watts RMS x 1 (at 2Ω) for this system. NexD is a state-of-the-art
switching amplifier design that combines exceptional audio quality with
excellent efficiency and less complexity. This results in an affordable compact
amplification with exceptional audio quality and unsurpassed total efficiency.
The XD-Series amplifier employs advanced thermal and low-impedance protection to
virtually eliminate annoying amplifier shut-down events. Should the XD-Series
amplifier ever overheat, its intelligent, unregulated power supply reacts by
limiting available peak voltage until the amplifier returns to a safe
temperature range. Likewise, if an impedance lower than optimal for the
amplifier is present at the outputs, the XD amplifier will roll back peak
voltage to protect itself without shutting down.
- Simplified Gain Setting: The XD Series amplifier
makes setting the gain level of the amp via the input sensitivity
control very simple. All you need is Digital AC Voltmeter (142TK12V,
sold separately) and a Test CD Disc (503CD104,
sold separately) with a sine-wave test-tone recorded at 0 dB reference
level in the frequency range to be amplified for that set of channels
(50 Hz for subwoofer channels, 1 kHz for a midrange application). The
XD700/5 is equipped with a independent gain controls for the 1/2, 3/4, &
- Flexible Input Section And Active Crossover Network:
The JL Audio XD amplifier provides a flexible input section and
a comprehensive crossover network to fine tune your system effectively
and accurately. The variable filter design employed in the JL Audio XD
amplifier crossover sections allow you to seamlessly switch slopes,
easily change filter frequencies and address what frequencies the preamp
inputs will pass. The XD700/5 offers the following independent crossover
adjustments for the front, rear, and subwoofer channels along the unit's
top panel, behind a removal cover plate.
- Power/Ground/Turn-On Terminals: The amplifier
features set-screw terminals for the power, ground, and remote turn-on
- Speaker Output Terminals: The XD700/5 amplifier's
twelve set-screw speaker terminals will accept 16 to 8 AWG speaker wire.
A 2.5mm hex-wrench is supplied for making connections.
- Preamp Inputs: The amplifier features 3 pair of
differential-balanced RCA jack inputs. The amplifier features a
dedicated Input Sensitivity gain control for the front 1/2, 3/4, and 5
channels of the amplifier. These controls are designed to match the
input sensitivity of the HD700/5 to the specific signal source that is
feeding it. The amplifier's input level can be set independently for all
channels between 100mV-4V.
Remote Level Control (HD-RLC): The wired remote level control lets you
control the volume of all channels or just the subwoofer channel of the XD700/5
from the front of your vehicle. This is useful for subwoofer level control or
even as a master volume control for your system.
Warranty Information: The installation of a StealthMod system will
likely invalidate the factory warranty of the OEM (factory) audio system. JL
Audio's warranties only cover the installed JL Audio equipment and do not extend
to cover any failures of OEM (factory) equipment.
