Our take on the JL Audio C5-570cw

by Jo Greene
JL Audio

What's a component sub and why would I want one?

A component sub is simply a speaker that's designed to reproduce bass once it's installed in a compatible enclosure. Think about the impact of a movie soundtrack in a big theater or even in your own home HDTV setup. A component sub can add the same kind of power to the music in your car. And a car sub is not all about the boom that you hear on a street corner (although that's cool too) - you can pair a component sub with your choice of enclosure to get bass just the way you like it, from tight and punchy to fat and loose. And once you experience music in your car with a well-tuned subwoofer, you'll never go back.

If you're looking to add bass to your ride without sacrificing trunk space, here's a great solution. Pair two of these JL Audio C5-570cw woofers with the right components for fatter, fuller guitar and bass in your soundstage.

JL Audio built this 5"x7"/6"x8" " woofer for extended cone travel so it'll move more air, putting more oomph in your music when the rhythm section kicks in. This C5 Series woofer uses the same patented cooling technology developed for the ZR Series speakers, so it'll play with a wide dynamic range at all volumes.

If you've already got a sub in the back, adding two of these woofers is great for adding some midbass punch in your interior. Even better, install JL Audio's C5-570 5"x7" component system up front, then use two of these matched woofers in the rear to reinforce midrange and upper bass performance while keeping your soundstage right up front.

Our Product Research Team

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.

Features

Cast Alloy Baskets: The Evolution C5 woofers feature cast alloy woofer baskets and incorporate JL Audio's patented Elevated Frame cooling system. This cooling technology, also found on the flagship ZR component systems and W7 and W6v2 subwoofers, allows air to flow directly across the top plate and onto the voice coil windings to greatly improve linearity at all listening levels.

Motor Structure: The DMA (Dynamic Motor Analysis)-optimized motor structure achieves outstanding linearity.

Woofer Cones: The cone and suspension elements were designed and manufactured by the world-famous Dr. Kurt Müller & Co of Germany. The speakers feature low-mass, mineral-filled polypropylene cones with butyl rubber surrounds. The cone and surround are inherently well damped to deliver an uncolored, neutral bass without any coloration. The speakers are also equipped with symmetrical-roll, hybrid-weave spiders.

Mounting: The C5-570cw fits many 5x7 and 6x8 applications and can be top or bottom mounted. Bottom mounting requires using the included adapter ring. The adapter ring can be used (optionally) when top mounting, adding approximately 4/10" to the mounting height and subtracting approximately 4/10" from the mounting depth.

Put them in to replace 6x8 subs in Jaguar. Sounds way better. Good bass, but need an amp to really get the sound i want. Plan on getting JL Audio amp from Crutchfield as soon as possible. Crutchfield has great customer service and good prices. Only took two days to get it here in Florida. Will buy again from Crutchfield!!

JL AUDIO C5-570cw is a solid performer

Written By Gator97, Far eastern NC on Sunday, April 14, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The JL Audio C5-570cw although expensive is a solid mid range performer. If you have a Mach 460 or Mach 1000 sound system in your ford there is no better mid and low range subwoofer ( i have tried several variations and none compare to the JL ). I could not find a better replacement for the factory subwoofer than this model. The C7-570cw does not produce deep powerful bass but as a mid range and low end speaker it is crystal clear and no distortion. Quality is unsurpassed as it is a JL Audio product. I would recommend this speaker to anyone looking to keep their factory ford Mach system in top working order. Installation was a breeze and the 5 x 7 woofer fit nice and tight in the Mach 460 deck box with the exception of one tab on the outside needing trimmed off due to ford's design of the woofer box ( JL already perforated a cut in this tab so it simply snaps off ). Bottom line: if you are looking to replace your Ford 5x7 speakers with crystal clear mid and low woofers than this woofer is for you . If you are looking for an all around 5 x 7 in a 3 or 4 way look elsewhere as this speaker is only designed for mid low range frequencies and at the price of most high end component sets ( for one 5 x 7 woofer as they are sold individually ) you could upgrade all your speakers at a fraction of the cost. At a lower price it would be a solid 5 stars in my opinion.
Pros:
Flawless build quality and great sound quality
Cons:
Extremely high price for individual speaker of 5 x 7 size and sold individually instead of a pair. At the price for a pair you could by 12" inch JL subs and a box and have change left over for a down payment on a amp.
