About the JBL GX608CAM

Enjoy JBL sound

JBL's GX608CAM 6-1/2" component speaker system flaunts a contemporary look that's backed by a legendary commitment to excellent sound. This system includes two woofers, two tweeters, and two external crossovers. JBL's patented Plus One™ structure extends the surface area of the polypropylene woofer cone to give you a better low-frequency 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.

Thoughtful design

The GX608CAM's low-impedance design safely draws more power from your car stereo or amp to give your music extra punch. JBL also includes external crossovers with adjustable tweeter control so that your lows and highs are evenly distributed and perfectly amplified.

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 — up to 70 watts RMS.

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

Features

Plus One Woofer Cones: The Plus One woofer 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.

Size Classification Note: These speakers are marketed as 6½; the woofers will fit standard 6½ speaker openings (approximately 5" diameter), but they 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 6¾ applications. The included brackets adapt the speakers to standard 6½ three hole, Ford four hole, and a variety of oversized 6¾ 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. (When using the brackets, the mounting depth is 1.810" and the mounting height is 0.722".) Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.

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.

Tweeters: The edge-driven soft dome tweeters can be mounted several different ways using the included hardware:

  • I-Mount System: The tweeters can be surface- or flush-mounted with JBL's I-Mount system:
    • Surface Mount: Surface mounting the tweeters involves screwing the surface-mount cup to the mounting location, then inserting and locking the tweeter into the cup.
    • Flush Mount: Once a cutout is made, the tweeter is installed in the flush-mount adapter, then into the flush mount housing and inserted into the hole. The large plastic locking nut is threaded onto the housing (from behind the mounting surface) to hold the assembly securely in place. When flush mounted, the tweeters may be angled for optimum imaging.
  • Starfish Mounting Brackets: The Starfish mounting brackets allow the tweeters to be installed in factory locations behind the grilles:
    • Bottom Mount: Once the Starfish bracket is trimmed, it is secured to the underside of the grille panel. The tweeter must be inserted into the bracket and locked into place before the bracket is mounted.
    • Surface Mount: Once the Starfish bracket is trimmed, it is screwed to the top of the mounting surface behind the grille panel. Then, the tweeter is inserted into the bracket and locked into place.
    • Flush Mount: There are two sets of tabs to flush mount the tweeter in the Starfish bracket, yielding different mounting dimensions. The upper tabs mount the tweeter completely below the opening and are glued in place. The lower mounting tabs are screwed in place and result in a mounting height just under a half inch. Once the bracket is mounted, the tweeter is inserted into the bracket and locked into place.

Customer Q&A

2 questions already asked

Q
Do I need to add an amplifier if I am replacing my stock speakers and head unit with these speakers?
[ Dale  May 02, 2020 ]
3 answers
A
You do not need to, but you certainly can if you want. It would greatly increase the power output.
[ DAVID RYAN  May 05, 2020 ]
A
Yes an amplifier is required for these component speakers as they are a 2 ohm load and a stereo will not run them properly.
[ Adam  May 05, 2020 ]
A
You do not "need" an amp. Install the speakers first, then see if the current receiver can drive the speakers loud enough for your tastes. If you want more volume, then add an amp.
[ Pete  May 04, 2020 ]
Q
I have factory bose crossover. Do i still need to use these in the set?
[ Will  Feb 27, 2020 ]

You should use the crossover that comes s the speakers. They are designed to work together for the best sound.
