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.
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.
Tweeter Mounting Dimensions:
||With mounting ring
(1-5/8" screw depth)
|W/O mounting ring
(1-5/8" screw depth)
|Angled Surface Mount
(7/8" screw depth)
Crossovers: The VR-series components use premium Mylar capacitors and
air-core inductors on the 4th order high-pass filters. The woofer is unfiltered,
using its engineered smooth roll-off characteristics to blend with its tweeter.
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.
