About the JBL Stadium GTO930
Say goodbye to factory sound
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 GTO930 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 GTO930 6"x9" 3-way speakers as a hi-fi solution for those who want better sound in their vehicle. You'll find an edge-driven design in their dome tweeter 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. JBL adds a textile dome supertweeter to bring home all the ultra-high details.
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 included.

Very good 6x9 speakers for the price. I put them in heavy wooden enclosures and they give good all around performance for the price.
Pros: Good full range speakers for the price.
Cons: Bass is only OK.

Only six months ago I got the JBL GTO939 and installed them in my travel trailer. They sounded great. But I decided to replace them with the JBL STADIUM GTO930, given the wider frequency range. There IS a noticeable difference - worth the effort and money, plus I'll be putting the old ones in my car anyway. Either the old or new sound great, even at low volume. The details they bring out in the music are amazing. I never grow tired of listening to my old music for hours, in the dark, at night, at low volume, in the otherwise extremely quiet camper. The tweeters are tilted slightly, and I found the stage becomes bigger, better and diffuse if they are positioned to direct the sound AWAY from the listener, towards the walls in the camper. When I install the old ones in my car, I'll position the tilt away from the passengers, to bounce the sound off the rear window, hopefully with the same effect. Sale price was $50 off on the pair of the Stadiums. In the settings of the head unit, be sure to specify "No subwoofer", to fully hear the low frequencies. I tried experimenting with a separate subwoofer and it added nothing. Main complaint: The holes for the screws are plastic and extremely delicate. This is a BIG PROBLEM, especially if you like to listen to your music with no interference (real or imagined) from the grills.
Pros: Superb detail and dimension in the sound, even at low volume
Cons: Plastic frame is easily broken if you tighten the screws too much

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. The result is improved vocals and musical clarity. The tweeter also has an output level switch; choose +0 dB (flat) or +3 dB.
Super Tweeter: The GTO 930 adds a super tweeter to reinforce the high frequencies and keep pace with the larger cone of the 6" x 9" woofer.
Terminals: The input terminals are set screws that will accept up to 12 gauge bare wire.
