Upgrade your factory speakers

Whether you're suffering with a blown speaker or you just want hear a little more detail in your music, JVC's DRVN Series speakers have you covered. The CS-VS608 6-1/2"" component speaker system features a durable woofer cone made from a mixture of Aramid, carbon fiber, and mica. JVC uses a tough cloth/rubber surround to support the woofer cone, so you'll enjoy strong bass.  

You'll mount the separate 1" balanced dome PEI tweeter up closer to your ears for better stereo separation and detail, while the included 2-way crossover network directs the right frequencies to the woofer and tweeter for maximum performance. These speakers will give you a solid boost in sound quality, even when powered by your factory radio. Grilles are included.

Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

Product Research

Features

Woofer: Mica is added to an aramid and carbon fiber composite olefin base, resulting in a rigid, light, and durable cone.

Tweeters: The tweeters are PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide) balanced-domes; PEI is a polymer film that produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging. A semi-dome tweeter has a dome placed inside a cone. Balanced dome tweeters are semi-dome tweeters with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the tweeter.

Tweeter Mounting Options: The tweeters come with brackets to allow flush mounting or angled surface mounting (approximately 30°):

  Flush Mount Angled Surface Mount
Mounting Height 0.3" 1.375"
Mounting Depth 0.875" 0.3" (screw depth)
Frame Diameter 2.577" N/A
Cutout Diameter 1.983" N/A
Frame Width N/A 1.80"
Frame Depth N/A 1.84"

Crossovers: The 2-way crossovers have input and output wires attached. The woofer has quick slide terminals, but the wire has no terminals attached, so item number 120FQS10PK can be added to provide the needed terminals. The crossovers' dimensions are:

  • Length: 4-1/8"
  • Width: 1-13/16"
  • Height: 7/8"

Woofer Mounting: In addition to fitting standard 6-1/2 and 4-hole 6-1/2 applications, the woofer also has a standard 6-3/4 bolt pattern. However, if mounted in a 6-3/4 location the holes for the smaller pattern create an air leak, which must be sealed using a speaker baffle, or something similar.

Sorry did not use an amp. Hook to stock GM system.

Don't know. I have a Rockford Fosgate

Not sure about working with the amp, but the speakers are awesome. Sound quality is excellent, very happy with them.

Q
Is my factory stereo enough for these without an amp? I guess I want to know if I should buy a component set of speakers?

Matthew, Wow, I would like to apologize for not getting back to you until now. I was planning on responding when I had more time and guess your email got overlooked. You have probably made a decision by now but, on the off chance you haven't... I will give you my two cents. Yes, these will work without an amp. Your factory stereo should power them fine. Although... you will not be using these speakers to their full and intended capabilities. Obviously, it would take an aftermarket head unit and an external amp to enjoy the components to the fullest. If your just looking to replace a blown set of speakers with no future upgrades, I would pass on these and just go with a set of coax. If you have plans to upgrade further in the future and need speakers now and don't have the funds for it all... this would be a smart way to go. Hope this helps and again I apologize for not responding sooner. Brian

Yes it is, they work great

I think your factory radio should be enough for these speakers. I got them as replacement speakers for my Chevy Trailblazer, and they are perfect for me. Nice highs and plenty of bass. I was satisfied.
[ STEVEN V  Jan 19, 2014 ]  Staff

I put these in a Chevy Silverado. My factory paper speakers rattled and buzzed. So I just wanted to enjoy music again. With a factory radio and no amp, these speakers sound pretty darn good. The separate tweeters really enhanced the sound. They were easy to install and economical.
[ THOMAS  Jan 19, 2014 ]  Staff
A
it should be, but i also put in the jvc kwr500 head unit and that made a huge difference. these speakers are great sounding and loud just depends on what the factory system output is. they were easy to install also.

Hi Matthew, I can't honestly answer the question as I replaced my factory radio at the same time I replaced the factory speakers with these. They don't require a whole lot of power to use them so I can't imagine why you couldn't. The separate tweeters are amazing. I purchased the Pioneer FH-X700BT ($150) to replace my factory radio and a set of Kicker 40CS654 6.5" Coaxial Speakers in the rear. This system sounds great even at low volume.

I have a nice JVC head unit running them with 45 a channel. Sounds great!!!
[ THOMAS J  Jan 19, 2014 ]  Staff

Matt, If you are looking for a good quality sound upgrade over your stock system, this should work great. I installed it on the stock stereo on my sisters 2008 vw rabbit without an amp and the sound impressed me. When the time comes to upgrade the speakers on my car, I plan on installing this kit. However, If you are looking for some serious bass or something along those lines, then this might not be the kit for you. Hope this helps. -Chris
