If you're in the market for new speakers, you've just found a serious contender. JBL created their GTO629 6-1/2" speakers as a hi-fi solution for those who want better sound in their vehicle.
You'll find JBL's unique Plus One woofer cone design at work here, which expands the diaphragm area of the cone to give you better low-frequency response. Edge-driven soft dome tweeters ensure a rich experience in the upper frequencies, defined by a bright, open quality. JBL builds in a UniPivot™ design that allows you to aim the tweeter's sound more directly at your ears, giving you a more detailed soundstage. You can also use the adjustable level control to tweak your tweeters to your liking, so the GTO629's sound is customized to your car.
These JBLs offer slightly lower impedance than standard car speakers, so they'll safely draw a little more power from your car stereo, yielding big volume even with low-powered factory radios. But if you want to blast these babies, they'll handle up to 60 watts RMS from an outboard amplifier.

Plus One Woofer Cones: The Plus One speaker cones offer more surface area than other speakers that fit in the same size opening. This is accomplished by using a new basket design and hi-roll surround. The result is greater bass output and an increase in efficiency.
UniPivot Tweeter: The angled tweeter pivots, so it can be aimed at the listeners for better stereo imaging. You can also adjust the tweeter output level; choose between 0 (flat) and +3 dB to compensate for off-axis mounting positions or road noise.
FRP Frames: The fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) frames used in the GTO series speakers resist warping, even when mounted on uneven surfaces. The nonmagnetic carbon composite has no impact on the motor structure and doesn't resonate.
High-Output Design: The 3Ω voice coil design compensates for the high in-line resistance of small gauge factory wiring, extracting more power from factory (or aftermarket) receivers. This results in clearer, richer sound for the listener.
Size Classification Note: These speakers are marketed as 6-1/2"; they will fit standard 6-1/2 speaker openings, but do not use the industry standard bolt pattern (then again, neither do many car manufacturers at this point). Without using an adapter bracket or drilling new screw holes, the speakers fit many standard 6-3/4 applications. The included metal brackets adapt the speakers to standard 6-1/2 three hole and Ford non-symmetric four hole patterns. If new holes are drilled in the mounting surface of the car, no brackets are needed. Brackets are also included that fit select oversized 6-3/4 installations in a variety of vehicles. Please refer to the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to confirm fit in your vehicle.
