Original Price: $299.95
The Evolution VR component speaker systems reflect JL Audio's extensive research into speaker construction. They faithfully reproduce subtle nuances of delicate sounds like woodwinds or female vocals, yet still deliver the soul-shaking boom of an electric bass and the "thwack" of a rock'n'roll kick drum.
The VR600-CSi component system features 6-1/2" woofers that handle high power without compromising sound quality, giving your bass some real definition and impact. The smooth-sounding 3/4" silk dome tweeters deliver the high-frequency detail that adds ambient realism to your music. And JL Audio's variable mounting system with swivel and rotation capabilities permits you to aim your tweeters precisely after installation.
The VR crossovers offer electronic protection circuits that ensure reliability by preventing overload damage. The VR crossovers also feature 2-position tweeter level controls that allow you to adjust high-frequency response to match up with woofer output.
Note: JL Audio describes this model as a 6" speaker. Most manufacturers designate this same frame size as a 6-1/2" speaker. For simplicity's sake we list it as a 6-1/2" speaker.

Why install component speakers?
A component speaker system gives you the best possible performance from your car audio system. A system consists of separate woofers, tweeters, and crossovers, each designed to cover one specific range of frequencies. As separate components, the woofer can move freely to deliver more powerful performance, while the tweeter can be custom-mounted in a better spot up closer to your ears, revealing a whole new world of detail. Separate crossovers are far superior to the simple filters wired into full-range speakers, so the components work together for smoother, more focused sound.
JL Audio VR600-CSi Reviews
Average Customer Review:
Decent for the price
2005 Scion xA
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I think I would have liked these speakers better had I gone with a better
amp to power them. Also the place that installed them could be at fault for
the issues I had with them. I blew one of the tweeters within 1 hour of
picking up my car, and for some reason they glued them into place instead
of just mounting them so I was unable to remove it to replace it. I have
had JL Audio speakers in the past and have never had an issue with them,
and believe that my poor choice in amps and poor install was to blame for
my dislike of the product.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Installed in front location of FJ cruiser. Went in very easily. Tweeters are fine, not over done and the component woofer has great range. Nice feature is the tweeter level attenuator. I was very pleased with this purchase.

Woofers: The JL Audio Evolution VR-series component speakers feature injection-molded, mica-filled polypropylene cone woofers with 1" voice coils and flat-profile, symmetrical-roll spiders. The woofers feature long excursion and enhanced low-frequency extension for power, more realistic bass. The woofers use butyl rubber surrounds for reliability and strength.
Tweeters: The VR-series 3/4" silk dome component tweeters are precision manufactured in Germany. The tweeters feature powerful, ferro-fluid cooled and damped neodymium magnets. You can mount the tweeters in the supplied flush-mount or surface-mount fixtures. When the tweeters are flush-mounted, the RSR (Ratcheting Swivel/Rotation) mounting system allows the tweeter to be rotated and/or angled for optimum imaging. The flush-mount fixtures can be used with or without the supplied trim ring.

Crossovers: The VR-series components use premium Mylar capacitors and air-core inductors on the 2nd order high-pass filters. The woofer output uses a 1st order low-pass filter. Each crossover has a 2-position Tweeter Level Control designed to compensate for different mounting locations, vehicle interiors, and personal taste. You can choose "Reference", or if the sound seems too harsh or aggressive, switch to the -3dB setting. Crossover Dimensions: Width=3.15", Height=4.74", Depth=1.1"
Electronic Tweeter Protection: The VR crossovers are equipped with an advanced electronic tweeter protection circuit designed to minimize the possibility of tweeter failure. It monitors current going to the tweeter and will disconnect the tweeter from the signal when it senses overload. Once the volume has been reduced, the protection circuit will reset itself automatically.
Grilles: Two black metal mesh grilles and black ABS plastic grille frames are included with the speakers.
