You'll have to custom-mount tweeters or midrange speakers, which usually requires drilling holes and running new wires.

JL Audio's ZR100-CT high-performance 1" aluminum dome tweeters bring out the subtle details in your music so you get a clear sonic picture of all the instruments in the stereo mix. You'll enjoy the extended high-frequency response offered by an aluminum dome, while special-design butyl rubber surrounds eliminate the shrillness that can plague lesser metal tweeters.

The crisp-sounding ZR100-CT tweeters feature strong neodymium magnets, ferrofluid-cooled for reliable performance. JL Audio's ratcheting swivel rotation (RSR) system allows you to aim these tweeters for the best possible stereo image in your vehicle.

Note: These tweeters must be used with the supplied in-line high-pass filters, or an appropriate external crossover. Failure to do so could lead to damage to the tweeters not covered under the warranty.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The ZR tweeter delivers sparkling detail and effortless dynamics thanks to carefully balanced design and precision German assembly.

Aluminum Dome: The ZR component system tweeters utilize a 1" ultra-light aluminum dome, delicately suspended with a synthetic rubber, positive-roll surround to damp fatiguing ringing and preserve high-frequency definition. A Nomex voice coil former is used to further reduce mass.

Neodymium Magnets: The high-energy neodymium wafer magnet and machined field structures provide a dynamically stable field for the low-mass voice coil.

Performance: Each pair of ZR tweeters is tested and matched to within 1 dB of JL Audio's reference curve to ensure optimum system performance.

High Pass Crossover: The JL Audio external high pass crossover networks (6dB/octave) offer high-end filter components such as precisely wound air-core inductors and high-quality, low-tolerance capacitors. Tweeter protection is also incorporated into the crossover networks. The crossovers measure 0.895" in diameter and 3.285" in length.

Mounting Options: A very shallow flush-mount system makes it easy to integrate the ZR tweeter into any vehicle interior while a unique, metallic accent around the grille edge gives it a great look. Two additional mounting fixtures are also included for each tweeter. The tweeters come mounted in enhanced flush mount fixtures with silver trim and a JL Audio badge. The system also comes with compact flush-mount fixtures and angled, surface-mount fixtures. The mounting dimensions for each mounting option are as follows:

Mounting Fixture Mounting Depth Mounting Height Frame Diameter Cutout Diameter
Enhanced Flush Mount 0.566"
(1.5" screw depth)
0.48" 2.126" 1.725"

JL tweeters

Written By mancho, tampa, fl on Wednesday, November 12, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great tweeters. I can get all kinds of high notes out of them depending on how I equalize my full-range front JL speakers

Pros: Great sound

Cons: price, the angled mount does not have the chrome "JL" circle surrounding it like the flush mount does so it looks a little off.

Get everything you’ll need to enjoy your new JL Audio ZR100-CT

You may need speaker wire to get the signal to your tweeters. It's sold by the foot, so enter the amount you'll need when you get to your cart.
Reduce ambient road noise and your vehicle's "rattles," for better sound inside your car.
The right tools will help keep your installation simple and clean.
