About the JL Audio C5-400cm-RP

Essential sound

Made in Germany, this C5-400cm-RP 4" midrange driver was built to be the workhorse of your custom car audio system, handling the crucial frequencies that determine the character of your music. The vocals and instruments come alive, thanks to superb construction and superior materials. This 4" driver uses a mineral/polypropylene cone for excellent damping and a smooth sound that makes it an impressive performer in a 3-way system.

Product Research


4/2 Hole Compatibility: Most 4" factory speakers use four mounting screws, however, in some vehicles, only two are used. The C5-400cm's mounting tabs can be removed, allowing installation in 4-hole or 2-hole applications. Care should be taken handling the speaker after any tabs are removed because the broken edges may be sharp. Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.

Frequency Range: Although the C5-400cm's measured frequency response is 100 Hz-9 kHz ± 3 dB, it's designed to operate within the 300 Hz-5 kHz bandwidth for the best sound quality. No crossover is included.

Power Handling: JL Audio publishes several power specifications for this speaker, 75 watts continuous power handling (RMS), 225 watts peak music power, and 25-150 watts recommended amplifier power (RMS). We've listed the conservative combination of 25-75 watts RMS in the specs table.

Speaker Cones: The cone and suspension elements were designed and manufactured by the world-famous Dr. Kurt Müller & Co of Germany. The speaker features a low-mass, mineral-filled polypropylene cone with a rubber surround.

No Grille: No grille is included with this speaker.
