About the JL Audio C1-650x

Starter speakers like no other

After an extensive tour of JL Audio HQ, I got the opportunity to talk to their engineering and development team about the current JL Audio lineup and upcoming projects. Given all the work they're doing with premium car audio, I was surprised by how excited they were for customers to hear their workhorse C1 Series — speakers designed for drivers simply looking for a sensible factory speaker replacement, not necessarily an audiophile-grade solution. The reason for that excitement, once I heard it, made perfect sense — every JL Audio speaker must uphold the quality and sound associated with the name. You may be looking for something that's just listenable, but what you'll get with the C1 Series is an audio experience that puts it at the top of its class. And then, just maybe, you'll end up being a JL Audio fan for life.

C1-650x

An aluminum edge-driven dome tweeter helps define this C1 speaker's distinctive sound.

What sets C1 apart?

JL Audio designed the C1 Series C1-650x 6-1/2" speakers to be the very best they could be for the price. You'll find solid construction and finish, along with some eye-popping flair in its striking yellow mineral-filled polypropylene woofer. That woofer delivers impactful lows and is specially designed for a natural roll-off transition to the highs handled by the tweeter. And it's the aluminum edge-driven tweeter that gives the C1 Series its distinctive sound, setting it apart from other speakers at this price. You'll hear crisp detail in the high frequencies, incredible imaging, and minimal distortion no matter how you power them.

Why no grilles?

Most folks have no use for aftermarket grilles, opting to use their factory grilles for a streamlined look. With that in mind, JL Audio doesn't include grilles with the C1 Series, opting instead to incorporate those savings into building an all-round better speaker.

Great unit, not too hard to install

Taylor from Marietta, GA on 5/30/2019

2016 Honda Civic

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I got this for my 2016 Honda Civic LX-P Coupe to replace the 5" screen. I also got the ready harness and the thing that makes the backup camera work. when I received everything in the mail and opened it all up, it was a bit daunting to say the least. However, after the 2 or so hours this took me to install (with the help of extremely knowledgable Crutchfield guys over the phone), I can truly say ANYONE can do this install. Just take your time and you'll get it. I've only had it installed for a day but so far i love it. It's very simple and straightforward which is all I was looking for. And the AUX input in the front is wonderful. Backup camera works automatically when I go into reverse, however it does flicker once before staying on the screen. I've seen someone else say this happened to them too, so maybe it just happens on some cars. Anyways, sound is great, easy to use, looks great!

Pros: easy to install (with ready harness) Looks nice Easy to use

Cons: Backup Camera flickers once right after popping up on screen.

Weak speakers

Matt from Saco, maine on 5/22/2019

2008 Chevrolet Silverado

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These speakers were recommended to me by a local audio store and I decided to buy them off this site since they were cheaper well let me tell you they aren't what everyone said they were the stock speakers in my Silverado can handle more than these can. Very muddy and choppy for one and there isn't much insulation with the install kit so they rattle a good amount. Definitely don't recommend these to anyone maybe I'm doing something wrong idk.

Pros: Good at a low volume.

Cons: Can't handle any loudness, muddy+choppy, poor insulation

Crutchfield response on 5/27/2019
Matt, we're sorry you're disappointed with your speakers. There are a couple things that might be causing the problem. Please feel free to reach out to our Tech Support team for help.

2007 Honda Civic LX

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased these in May 2017 and installed them in the front doors of a 2007 Honda Civic Sedan. They worked well for about 18 months. The tweeter that is located in the center of the speaker came loose and vibrated. The vibration from the speaker was so bad that I could not listed to them. I replaced the speakers with another brand. When I removed the JL speaker and inspected it there were no signs of any damage. In fact the speaker looks brand new. These speakers only carry a 1 year warranty but something like this should not have happened. The life span of these speakers should have been much longer than 18 months.

Pros:

Cons: Speaker failed after 18 months. Warranty is 1 year.

I boight these and the C1 5 1/4. I am going to be taking them out and putting in different speakers. They are clear but very lacking. I have an Alpine f300 4x50 pushing them and I can hear them clipping about 2/3 of the way up on the volum. I wasn't expecting competition quality but i thought they would be loud and they are not without distorting. Everything was installed professionally.

Pros: Clear.

Cons: Not loud at all. No mids all high.

Crutchfield customer from Manhattan Bch, CA on 2/6/2018

2009 Lexus RX350

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The JL Audio C1-650x provided exactly what I expected when I ordered it - Clarity. The sound in my wife's RX350 was muddy and boomy, so I decided to upgrade the speakers with something that had high efficiency, good range and precision. I had used JL Audio speakers once before and they were my first choice. I upgraded the front 6x9 speakers with JL Audio C1-690x speakers. That gave solid, clear sound from the front but the rear was still muddy. Your website showed that some 6 1/2" speakers would fit in the rear but not JL Audio, so I order the C1-650x with the SAT6 adapter for other 6 1/2" speakers and modified the SAT6 for the C1-650x. They fit and sound great! The sound is now loud enough, clear and has good solid but precise bass. They sound like Definitive Technology speakers for the car.

Cons:

JL is the only brand for speakers

Ryan from Flemington, NJ on 10/24/2017

2018 Subaru WRX

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought these speakers for my 2018 WRX for the front doors - temporarily, until I move them to the rear doors and put the JL C2 speakers in the front. Overall, there's not a whole lot I can say about these speakers. JL quality is phenomenal so I wasn't surprised with these. The clarity in the midrange and high tones are amazing. I went with JL for my speakers because I already own a subwoofer (the TW3 12") which is fantastic as well. These speakers don't have a lot of bass, which is expected (that's what the subwoofer is for) but by themselves they would sound great still. I haven't replaced the rear door speakers or the dash tweeters yet, but even just having the front doors done makes a world of difference and I'm glad that it worked the way I wanted it to! Don't even consider any other speaker. These are loud, clear, and free of any sort of obnoxious shrill in the high notes, or distortion in the low.

Pros: Perfect clarity No shrill high notes or distorted lows

Cons: The mounting brackets were useless, but it's okay because I bought others

Sound great for the price!

Trip from Mount Shasta, CA on 10/22/2017

2002 Subaru Forester

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Pretty solid fidelity for the price. I would love a flatter response and better soundstage, but, as all thing high performance, that takes a good deal more money. These are clear but tweeter heavy for my taste. Nonetheless, they are efficient, punchy, and clear with the Alpine's 18 watt output. I don't listen at ear splitting volume so your mileage may vary. They certainly should be an upgrade for most stock speakers. They were for mine. It's an older car so for the money these give me some fidelity without me wanting to strip out the stereo when I pass the car on. I put JL C1 4" in the rear. Going to add a sub as it needs some better low end warmth and punch, especially at freeway noise levels. Great entry level stuff from JL.

Pros: Reasonably high fidelity at a low price point. They don't seem to need a lot of power to sound good, and stay clear and punchy with only 18 watts RMS running them.

Cons: Hard to install in my Subaru. Supplied brackets wouldn't work and holes in the speakers won't line up with my stock brackets. Tweeter heavy sound (can be tamed a bit with good eq skills but tricky to get a flatter/even response from these entry level speakers) - some ear fatigue as a result.

Worked ok, failed after 3 months

Steve from Fairfield County, CT on 10/2/2017

2013 Hyundai Accent

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

They worked well for 3 months, I was using them as rear door speakers for a 5 speaker system, 1 subwoofer, powered by an ALPINE PDR-V75. They were handling the full frequency range, I have Polk Audio DB6502 component speakers in the front doors covering 80hz and up, and a marvelous Skar Audio EV-12MB S2 12" Single 2O sub covering 0 to 250 hz. The JL Audio's were filling out the lower and mid frequencies between the Polks and the Skar Audio sub nicely, until one of the JL's failed completely and the other's tweeter broke off from the driver and was keeled over sideways. It's time to upgrade to a better set of speakers...

Pros: Price, performance ok for the price

Cons: not ready for prime time long term performance.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These speaker weren't what I thought they'd be after reading such great reviews. I put these in my rear doors of my sierra and ran them on my rockford fosgate T400.4 and I'm let down. My front doors have the JL TR650-csi and they carry the weight for the car because these speakers just don't do justice. They look great. They feel great. But in my opinion you should maybe give something else a try. I've been having these a few weeks and I'm already ready to up grade.

Pros: Crutchfield is awesome They feel great and look even better

Cons: Coming from a JL speaker I thought they'd sound better.

I drive a good distance every day. I needed to feel the music both physically and emotionally to get me through. I was very surprised at the amount of quality sound that came from these speakers. I'll be a JL audio man from here on out.

Pros: Sound quality. Fit the factory holes. Good range of sound.

Cons: You will definitely need to add a small amp with a decent crossover. The head unit just won't be enough

I don't have much to say. These are awesome replacements for my Genesis coupe speakers. Old ones were starting to make odd noise when the bass hits. So I was looking in getting something that sounded really good with the base amp, and to what is available for the car. Sounds cleaner, more crisp, and more bass, to what the car came from the Factory. This model ended in the rear set for my car. Crutchfield provides instructions for you car, and adapters so you have have to do any modifications or wire cutting. No charge! Purchased with C1-650 for the Fronts

Pros: Sound is clean More Crisp Bigger Bass to compared I had previous.

Cons: None!

Purchased the JL Audio C1-650x to replace the factory rear 6.5's in a 2011 Toyota Tacoma Double cab (non JBL). You will need to fabricate or purchase a speaker mount to fit these to the rear door. I fabricated a mount from 1/2" starboard and the speaker fit was exact in terms of door panel fit and mounting depth. The C1's provide detail and clarity. I am running JL Audio C1-690's in the front and these match perfectly.

Pros: Great sound Great value

Cons: No speaker mount available from Crutchfield / JL Audio

Features

Woofers: Each JL Audio C1 speaker features a mineral-filled, injection-molded polypropylene woofer cone with a rubber surround.

Tweeters: The 3/4" edge-driven, aluminum dome tweeters are damped by a silk surround suspension.

Size Classification Note: These speakers are marketed as 6-1/2"; they will fit in standard 6-1/2" speaker openings, but do not use the standard 6-1/2" speaker bolt pattern. In order to install them in standard 6-1/2" speaker openings you must drill new screw holes. If new holes are drilled in the mounting surface of the car, no bracket is needed. If drilling in the car is not an option, the included brackets can be used, which have standard 6-1/2" mounting holes, the Ford non-symmetric four hole pattern, and non-standard 6-3/4" three and four hole patterns. Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.

Power Handling: JL Audio publishes several power specifications for this speaker, 50 watts continuous power handling (RMS), 225 watts peak music power, and 10-75 watts recommended amplifier power (RMS). We've listed the conservative combination of 10-50 watts RMS in the specs table.
