About the JBL GX862

Stylish sound

JBL makes speakers for trend-setters, those who want a car speaker that looks as good as it sounds. The GX862 5"x7"/6"x8" 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 little things that count

The GX862'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.

Mounting Applications: JBL describes this speaker as a 5x7/6x8; it fits many 5x7 and 6x8 applications. Please check the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector 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.

Q
Do you have covers for these speakers available?

A
We don't carry a replacement grill for those JBL speakers. That may be something you can try reaching out to the manufacturer directly for as those are speakers are a discontinued model. JBL can be reached at 800-336-4525. If you don't have any luck or end up needing to replace the whole speaker let us know. --Cosmo
