About the JBL GX602

Stylish sound

JBL makes speakers for trend-setters, those who want a car speaker that looks as good as it sounds. The GX602 6-1/2" coaxial speaker flaunts a contemporary look that's backed by JBL's legendary commitment to excellent sound. The speaker's patented Plus One™ structure extends the surface area of the polypropylene woofer cone to give you a better midbass experience. And an edge-driven tweeter expands the high-frequency range, so you'll hear musical details that you never heard from your old speakers.

The compact build of the JBL GX602 makes it a great fit for more factory openings.

The little things that count

The GX602's low-impedance design safely draws more power from your car stereo or amp to give your music extra punch. JBL has also included a tweeter deflector to compensate for the diversity of car interiors. With high-frequency soundwaves guided more directly toward your ears, your music gains a truer, more dynamic sound.

A match for any system

These 2.3-ohm speakers are sensitive enough that you can power them with an aftermarket stereo, but you'll get even better results feeding them power from an outboard amp.

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.

Edge-Driven Dome Tweeter: Each speaker's edge-driven dome tweeter rotates, and uses Harman's proprietary tweeter deflector to optimize the off-axis performance.

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 brackets adapt the speakers to standard 6-1/2 three hole, Ford four hole, and a variety of oversized 6-3/4 installations. If new screw holes are drilled in the mounting surface of the car, it may be possible to mount the speakers in many of these applications without the brackets. Please refer to the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to confirm fit in your vehicle.

High-Output Design: The 2.3Ω 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.

Q
I have these I bought from crutchfield and have four in my truck. One in each door. What would be a good amp to put with them? I have two 12 inch kicker 2 ohm comp R behind the seat in a ported box being driven by a kicker 800 watt amp and head unit is a Kenwood DDX9905S head unit.

Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system.

Q
Does an amp really make a difference? Have aftermarket headunit and sub already. Wondering if I should go for the amp. Thinking of buy these and gx 600c.

You can definitely get greater volume and clarity from the speakers when you power them with the additional wattage of an external amplifier. Most aftermarket stereos will provide around 14-22 watts RMS per channel but the JBL GX602 speakers can handle up to 60 RMS. I hope that helps.

Q
I recently bought these speakers, and the box says 6-1/2" speakers. My car takes 6-1/2". Is there multiple types of this speaker?

The GX series comes in all the standard speaker sizes. Even though your car says it can take a certain size, doesn't mean it is a direct bolt on. A lot of times the mounting holes don't line up, requiring an adapter ring which these speakers come with btw. Sometimes there are alignment nubs in the mounting surface that you can trim off with a knife, but you shouldn't have to make any major mods to your vehicle if it says 6 1/2 will fit. Speakers sound awesome by the way.
[ John U  Mar 13, 2015 ]

What do you mean by types? Did they not fit? These are available in different sizes but they are a 2 way speaker, which by the way sound very good. They will normally fit 6.25 to 6.75 enclosures and require some drilling in some cases. If the size is wrong look at the GX502 GTO series speakers.
