Extended cone travel

JL Audio built this 5-1/4" woofer for extended cone travel so it'll move more air, putting more oomph in your music when the rhythm section kicks in. This C5 Series woofer uses the same patented cooling technology developed for the ZR Series speakers, so it'll play with a wide dynamic range at all volumes.

Versatile sub

If you've already got a sub in the back, adding two of these woofers is great for adding some midbass punch in your interior. Even better, install JL Audio's C5-525 5-1/4" component system up front, then use two of these matched woofers in the rear to reinforce midrange and upper bass performance while keeping your soundstage right up front.

Features

Cast Alloy Baskets: The Evolution C5 woofers feature cast alloy woofer baskets and incorporate JL Audio's patented Elevated Frame cooling system. This cooling technology, also found on the flagship ZR component systems and W7 and W6v2 subwoofers, allows air to flow directly across the top plate and onto the voice coil windings to greatly improve linearity at all listening levels.

Motor Structure: The DMA (Dynamic Motor Analysis)-optimized motor structure achieves outstanding linearity.

Woofer Cones: The cone and suspension elements were designed and manufactured by the world-famous Dr. Kurt Müller & Co of Germany. The speakers feature low-mass, mineral-filled polypropylene cones with butyl rubber surrounds. The cone and surround are inherently well damped to deliver an uncolored, neutral bass without any coloration. The speakers are also equipped with symmetrical-roll, hybrid-weave spiders.

Q
Can I install these without an amp for my 2015 jeep Cherokee, no orignal sub, 8.4" screen?
[ Gabe  Sep 28, 2020 ]

A
Hi Gabe, the JL Audio C5-525cw-RP speakers, can be used in a vehicle with factory stereo power, but will offer improved sound quality and performance when used with an outboard amplifier for power. If you install these and feel that they are lacking in performance, please feel free to reach out to us via online chat, or by phone at 1-800-324-9695. We will be more than happy to assist.

Yes, we installed them without the amp.

Q
Are they water resistant?
[ Chad  Mar 31, 2020 ]

A
I dont think so. I am spraying with silicone spray which I always do with wet applications, salt water here, and buying yard of gortex at walmart and placing inside cover.. I anticipate many years of use with this method like I have seen in the past.

Will the speaker run on the amp for my shaker 500 system?
[ Chris  Nov 03, 2019 ]

Possibly. You should reach out to one of our advisors to ensure fitment and such! https://www.crutchfield.com/support/ContactUs.aspx

[ max  Mar 28, 2019 ]

That will vary depending on the system you are building for your vehicle. I recommend contacting an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 to discuss your goals and get a personal recommendation My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Paul

If it's for a Jeep Wrangler "TJ" center console, no, you only need one speaker.

Q
does this deck mounted subwoofer need a box or is the factory setup ok for this? 2016 Lincoln MKZ hybrid w/ factory THX / Navigation system
[ Stephen  Jan 15, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
It doesn't need a box. I just cut out a between my speakers and used a grille. Looks good and sounds fantastic.
[ ODIS  Jan 15, 2019 ]
Q
This has come up as a solution to replace thr factory speaker in the center console of Jeep TJ's. Is the factory console amp suitable to use?
[ A  Jun 29, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
I don't recommend it as this woofer will pull less power from the stock amp and not even play as well as the stock subwoofer did. Its best to install a new amp to run it. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101
[ Paul  Jul 11, 2018 ]  Staff
Q
My stereo has a 50 watt rms output. Would I need to use an amp for these? Since their RMS range covers my stereo RMS.
[ Jacob  May 21, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
A radio with 50 watts RMS output will definitely be able to drive these woofers. Just make sure that radio has a way to limit the audio going to its amp outputs so that these woofers don't get anything over 5,000Hz and they will work well together!

Q
What amp should I run if I'm putting two if these in my truck?
[ Ray  Feb 10, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your subs 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.
