Our take on the JL Audio C2-570X

by Buck Pomerantz
JL Audio

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.

JL Audio's Evolution C2 speakers

Side view of Evolution C2 speaker JL Audio's Evolution C2 speakers bring precision sound to your vehicle. They'll reproduce subtle elements of your music like delicate woodwinds or soprano vocals, then turn on a dime to deliver the deep thrum of the bass or thunder of the drums.


Silk tweeter delivers smooth highs

Silk tweeter

The C2-570X 5"x7" speakers feature rugged polypropylene cones that can handle high power without distortion, so you get full-bodied low tones you can really feel. The 3/4" silk dome tweeters serve up smooth-sounding high frequencies that won't tax your ears, adding a satisfying dose of realism to your soundstage. Built-in crossovers make sure your tunes play smoothly across the whole musical spectrum.

These speakers also fit in the 6"x8" speaker openings in many vehicles. Grilles not included.

Features

Woofers: The JL Audio Evolution C2-570x coaxial speakers feature a 5x7 injection-molded, mica-filled polypropylene cone woofer with a butyl rubber surround, a 1.0" voice coil on a Kapton Former, a symmetrical roll spider and a Ferrite magnet. These carefully engineered cones deliver the right combination of stiffness, damping, and off-axis response. The speaker also provides adequate bass, thanks to its ample mechanical clearance, optimized suspension and balanced motor design.

Tweeters: The Evolution C2-570x coaxial speakers feature a 0.75" silk dome, ferrofluid cooling tweeter with a dampened neodymium magnet. The edge-driven silk dome tweeter is smooth, detailed (on or off axis), and provides great overall performance. Silk is lightweight and great for high frequency extension and efficiency. It is also designed for durability in the extreme automotive environment.

Mounting: The JL Audio Evolution C2-570x coaxial speakers are a perfect fit for many vehicles that accept a 5x7-inch or 6x8-inch speaker. The speaker is configured for two and four-hole mounting configurations.

Power Handling: JL Audio lists two power figures in the manual; 60 watts continuous power handling and recommended amp power 15-100 watts RMS. We've listed the RMS power recommendation in the specs table.

Woke Up The Sound

Written By John, Arizona on Wednesday, July 09, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Really makes the music come alive, especially the highs. A little short on bass, but I guess 5x7 can only do so much.
Pros:
Easy install and wide sound.
Cons:
I bit expensive, but a good product.

Excellent for front door of an F150!!

Written By Mike, New Smyrna Beach, Florida on Saturday, March 29, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I was looking to get better sound out of my stock head unit in my '12 F150 (base stereo with tweeters in the "A" pillar) so I picked up a set of these for the front door. These speakers were a huge improvement over the stock ones. They produce detail in music I have never heard before. I love contemporary jazz and these speakers added tons of detail and a very noticeable kick of bass to the music. The page states that these will not fit in the rear doors but I test fit them and they fit with no issues. After a test listen to these in the rear door they did not produce the bass they do in the front doors but still sound great so I added a set of JL TR570-CXI's to the rear doors to round it out. I am very pleased with this combination!
Pros:
Detail and clarity in the music
Cons:
None

2010 Ford Fussion

Written By Tim, New Baden, IL on Wednesday, February 19, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I wanted to replace the front speakers with something better than the paper stock speakers. What a great upgrade, even with the stock head unit. Speakers are crisp and clear. Don't expect super bass. The speaker is just to small for that, however, the bass tones are rich and clear. They are perfect for a smaller car like the fussion. They fit right into the existing door speaker openings. Took longer to get the door panel off than it did to replace the speaker. yes this speaker is a little more expensive, but I believe it well worth paying a little extra. Good construction and great sound. I will be looking to get another set to replace the rear door speakers in the future.
Pros:
Great sound, Good construction
Cons:
None

Thrilled

Written By DChad, Lehi, UT on Friday, January 31, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I am thrilled with these speakers. They are replacing those supplied by the factory so they were bound to be better. There are instruments and words that I couldn't even hear before but now it is as clear as can be. They also fit right into my PT Cruiser, replacing the others.

JL Audio C2-570X 2013 Mustang w/ Shaker

Written By Wes B., Winston Salem, NC on Monday, April 29, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought these speakers to replace the front door speakers for my 2013 Mustang GT w/out the Shaker system. I was very disappointed in the factory sound system that this car had and upgrading the speakers was a no brainer! I was looking for a speaker with some deeper bass and clearer, crisper sound, and after lots of research and reading customer reviews, I decided to go with these speakers from JL. Also from my research, I found out that the mustang speakers are designed to have the majority of the music come from the front door speakers which is why I decided to just replace only these for now.

The speakers came very quickly (3 days after I placed the order) and Crutchfield was generous enough to include the free speaker connectors which made for a clean and easy installation! They also provided detailed instructions on installation which made the install very easy, even for the most inexperienced customer!

Overall: I do recommend these speakers as an upgrade to any newer model Ford w/out the Shaker system. However, if you do decide to go with any speaker replacement without an aftermarket receiver, I highly recommend buying an amplifier as well (which will be my next purchase)!
Pros:
Versus the factory speakers: I certainly feel that these speakers produce better quality, crisper sound with a touch more bass than the factory speakers. The lows are a bit deeper and the voice quality is spot on. Now the lyrics of the songs are clearer and not drowned out by the music.
Cons:
There is not much I can say bad about these speakers other than the bass was not as deep as I was hoping for as a direct factory replacement without an amplifier powering them. Even though I wasn't expecting subwoofer type bass output, I found that the factory amp just isn't powerful enough.

Very Nice Upgrade

Written By John S, Gautier, MS on Sunday, April 14, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased these for my F150 after encountering an odd issue where the passenger door speaker would intermittently sound blown. Rather than trying to deal with the dealership, I decided to just go ahead and upgrade. Very happy I did, as these sound much better than the stock speakers ever did.

Expensive, but saved the sound

Written By 2012 Expedition EL, MN on Thursday, August 16, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Ford's "premium sound" system with GPS & SYNC sounded so bad that it was basically unusable: Muddy bass, muffled highs; weak midrange. I couldn't understand voice when driving. I did some research and found out this is a common complaint. It turns out that a new head is not recommended and, as of this writing, is not even available. So I tried replacing the 4 door speakers with the JL audio and what a difference! The construction and sound quality of the JL speakers was day-and-night different than the OEM speakers that went in the garbage.
Pros:
Superior sound and construction
Cons:
pricey

Amazing Sound

Written By Seth, Pleasantville, PA on Monday, July 09, 2012
 
I have 4 of these speakers in a '96 Mustang GT, they are powered with a JL Audio XD400/4 amp and these speakers don't disappoint not one bit. They have such a crisp, clear, clean sound it's almost unbelievable no distortion. The bass these speakers produce are very surprising also. Wouldn't recommend any other brand other than JL Audio. Yes, they are pricey but they are worth it. I listen to a lot of rock, metal, rap/rock, country, and many other genres. Sounds great and you can hear all the background music which you miss hearing with other brand speakers. Highly recommend buying these speakers!
Pros:
Crisp, Clear, Clean Sound at any volume
Cons:
None

Sweet Sound!!

Written By Tony J., Chicago,IL on Saturday, March 24, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I originally purchased some Kenwoods and installed it in the front and rear of my Ford Edge, powered by a Pioneer head unit. The Kenwood speakers sounded ok but It wasn't great. My ears kept yearning for something better. So after much research I decided to send the Kenwoods back to Crutchfield in exchange for the JL C2570x and WOW!! what a diffirence! The sound is much cleaner. The details are there, the highs are nice and crisp, even the bass is is tighter. Even though these cost a considerable amount more than the Kenwoods, I feel that it's worth the the money for the sound quality you get in return. I can't wait to hear how it sounds once I have an amp. Installed with it. I can only think perfection!!! Thanks to Crutchfield for making it easy. I will never buy from another electronics retailer again!
Pros:
Overall sound quality. Highs are nice and crisp and bass is tight. Details are clear.
Cons:
price but you get what you pay for.

JL Audio C2-570X

Written By j, western NY on Friday, August 26, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
great improvement over Ford factory speakers. great quality and good value - you can spend less (or a lot more), but these are all the sound I need from a 20-watt per channel new JVC CD receiver. Bass is plenty good. Mid-range and treble are superbly better! When I ordered these, Crutchfield indicated there could be a fit issue for 2007 Ford F-150 because the depth was 0.06 inches more than original equipment. There was plenty of room to spare. You could even use the speaker baffles sold separately with no problem. However, there are two extra mounting tabs at the ends of these speakers that I had to cut so that it would fit into the existing door speaker mount with the existing four holes and screws. All you need is a hacksaw with a sharp blade and basic hand tool skills. - Happy customer.

Clean!

Written By PatrickB, Phoenix, AZ on Tuesday, July 26, 2011
 
Bought these to replace my old Infinity Reference 6812CF to get cleaner highs. I have to say these are definitely a nice improvement and well worth the money. I'm powering these speakers with a JL Audio XD400/4 complimented with my JL Audio 8" sub woofer in a 2005 Ford Ranger Regular Cab. I'm tempted to check out the JL Audio C5-570x, however for the price difference I may wait a while.

Outstanding

Written By Robby, San Antonio, Tx on Monday, January 10, 2011
 
I recently purchased these speakers for a F250 Crew Cab(Lots of Room) and All I have to say is WOW!!.....I set these up with a 5 channel JL amp and 2 Pioneer shallow 10' subs. To truly test these babys out, I popped in Transformers into my DVD to get a wide range of sound and these speakers performed flawlessly!...You just can't go wrong!!

What I would expect from JL audio, Very clean highs, lows that are pretty deep for a 5x7, speakers will not distort with the stock head unit, guess the amp is next! I wish I would have purchased them sooner.
