About the JBL Stadium GTO860

Say goodbye to factory sound

One of my favorite moments during a car audio installation is pulling out an old, ragged factory speaker from its location and then picking up its new, aftermarket replacement. And if you're installing JBL's Stadium GTO860 premium car speakers, the immediate difference is a dramatic jump in design and build. From the hefty magnet to the oversized voice coil with shimmering copper, you can see and feel improvement — now just imagine how much better they'll sound than the browning antiques that have been filling your ears with compromised audio for so long.

Say goodbye to factory sound

One of my favorite moments during a car audio installation is pulling out an old, ragged factory speaker from its location and then picking up its new, aftermarket replacement. And if you're installing JBL's Stadium GTO860 premium car speakers, the immediate difference is a dramatic jump in design and build. From the hefty magnet to the oversized voice coil with shimmering copper, you can see and feel improvement — now just imagine how much better they'll sound than the browning antiques that have been filling your ears with compromised audio for so long.

Edge-driven dome tweeters

JBL created their GTO860 6"x8" speakers as a hi-fi solution for those who want better sound in their vehicle. You'll find an edge-driven design in their PEI polymer dome tweeters for a smoother, more open response and minimal distortion at high volume levels. Each tweeter also features a level control button so you can adjust the brightness to your taste.

Woofers enhanced with Plus One+ technology

JBL's glass fiber woofer will hold its shape when the power's cranked up, so you still get punchy and defined bass. Glass fiber weighs less than traditional materials, so you don't need a ton of power to drive this woofer either. JBL's Plus One+ woofer technology extends the cone right up to the edge of the basket, giving you lots of surface area — and a bigger cone means more bass to complement the superior high-frequency response.

Power handling perfect for any system

These 2.5-ohm speakers boast ultra-high sensitivity so that you can power them with a factory radio or aftermarket stereo, but you'll get your best results feeding them plenty of power from an outboard amp. Either way, these speakers' low impedance safely takes advantage of every watt of power available for exceptional performance.

Grilles are not included; the factory grilles should be suitable for most applications.

Upgraded from the JBL GX862 after my right front speaker decided to keep cutting out, found out my speaker wire was burned up. I pared these speakers with kicker's 16 gauge wire kit and a Kicker 42PXA3004 amp running at full and these sound absolutely amazing! I can definitely push them louder and harder than the GX862s with minimal distortion at really high volume! Love how you use set screws instead of the terminal connectors to hook up too. These are the best speakers I've owned from JBL so far, I definitely recommend to anyone!

Pros: loud, very low distortion

Cons:

Clean ! Sound incredible. Worth every dollar.. I was told they wouldn't fit in the back extended cab doors . My windows don't roll down. They would of fit. They sound better then Bose I have in my suburban. So I put jlaudio in the back, they were more money and don't sound as good.

I bought these speakers for my 2010 ford f-150. I spent a lot of time looking at other speakers. the reason I picked these is that they fit without having to put in a speaker adapter. the sound of these speakers is awesome! I would definitely recommend.

Pros: price was good. they fit without speaker adapters

Cons: none

Great speakers! Crisp and clear. They easily handle everything my stock receiver can throw at it without any distortion. They're installed in the front doors of my Mazda3 and I'm looking to get another pair for the back doors.

Velvety Richness

Crutchfield customer from Manassas, VA on 1/13/2018

2016 Ford E-450

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I replaced the Ford factory speakers from an E-450 van chassis, and it was night and day between the sound quality. Before the change, the factory speakers nearly had to be at max volume due to the road noise, and there was no depth to the sound. The factory speakers were tinny and light. Now, with the JBL Stadium GTO860s, my ears are wrapped in smooth, velvety richness with deep textures and tones. With such a stark contrast, I wonder how I survived for two years without the JBLs. Worth every penny. I'd also like to recognize the Crutchfield team for making the transition so easy. I had never taken a door panel off before, but Crutchfield's step by step instructions made it so easy. I'm almost tempted to keep finding new reasons to take the panels off.

Product Research

Features

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.

High-Output Design: The high output 2.5Ω voice coil design compensates for the high in-line resistance of small gauge factory wiring and extracts every watt from factory receivers, increasing overall system output and efficiency (relative to 4Ω speakers). The speakers also benefit from increased power when you upgrade the wire and add aftermarket amplifiers, designed to power a 2.5Ω load.

Edge Driven Dome Tweeters: Each speaker has an Edge-driven soft dome tweeter. Edge-driven tweeters have better dispersion characteristics and allow for a lower crossover frequency than typical tweeters of the same size, which improves imaging, vocals and musical clarity. The tweeter also has an output level switch; choose +0 dB (flat) or +3 dB. The tweeter is angled and can be rotated about 270° after installation. This allows you to direct the tweeters toward the listeners, useful for speakers mounted low in a door.

Mounting Applications: JBL describes this speaker as a 6x8, but it also fits many 5x7 applications. Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.

Terminals: The input terminals are set screws that will accept up to 12 gauge bare wire.
