About the JBL Power Series 5-1/4" Speakers
JBL built their Power Series P-532 5-1/4" speakers to deliver crisp, ultra-clean performance at high sound pressure levels. The Neoglass tweeters deliver superb high-frequency response. Thermalum woofer cones and rubber surrounds add up to powerful, accurate bass. High power handling and rugged construction mean these speakers can take some punishment.
These speakers also have a component system conversion option: the tweeters may be removed from the woofers and flush- or surface-mounted. The conversion kit must be purchased separately. 1-year warranty.Details:

Woofers: The Thermalum woofer cones are composed of a polypropylene base with a bonded nickel layer. This cone is extremely durable making it the ideal choice for those who like to listen to their music loud without fatigue. In addition, the nickel layer actually "wicks" heat away from the motor structure thus increasing power handling. The co-injection molded rubber surrounds are actually bonded to the cone during the molding process. In addition, rubber surrounds provide excellent cone edge suspension as well as resisting moisture and UV contamination.
Tweeters: The Neoglass tweeter is a woven fiberglass tweeter with a neodymium magnet structure. Neoglass is a strong material that has excellent sonic properties. This tweeter provides very smooth and natural sounding output.
These speakers have a component system conversion option. The tweeter may be removed from the woofer to convert this speaker into a component system. A component conversion kit (item 109PKIT) must be purchased separately to convert this speaker to a component system. The conversion kit includes two crossovers, flush mount cups, surface mount cups and phase plugs. See item 109PKIT for more details, including tweeter mounting dimensions.
Component Power Handling Specifications: When used with the component conversion kit (item 109PKIT), the RMS power handling increases to 80 watts and the peak power handling is 200 watts.
The "Powerstat" cast polymer basket provides a rigid, non-resonant platform which ensures optimum clarity and long-term reliability.
Manual Clarification: The specification (150 watts) shown in the manual as the upper limit of the "Recommended Amplifier Power Range" is incorrectly listed as RMS power. 150 watts is the peak power rating. The power specifications (5-60 watts RMS) in the Crutchfield database were provided to us by JBL.
Note: These speakers do not include speaker wires.
