Crutchfield customer from Lubbock, TX on 11/21/2021

2021 Honda Ridgeline

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

Much clearer than my factory premium sound system. I had no idea what I was missing. The tweeters are somewhat harsh at higher levels due to the dome type, but for pure sq improvement over factory, totally worth every penny. I ended up putting in a kicker key amp later and now they really come alive. I can imagine ever going back to stock. I've encouraged several friends to go with this series due to bang for buck. Love it!!

Great affordable upgrade for Honda Element EX

Crutchfield customer from Grove City, OH on 11/21/2021

2011 Honda Element EX

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

For a Honda Element EX, this provided a particular improvement in the tweeter sound. (Original tweeter sounds muffled behind molded bezel.) The tweeter is small enough to surface mount on the original tweeter location. Hi speaker sensitivity rating keeps sound loud so you don't feel a need for a bigger amp. A nice affordable upgrade when keeping original amp.

Pros: Connects directly with existing wiring by using an inline tweeter crossover. No large 2 channel crossover box to mount.

Cons: You need a 1 - 7/16" hole saw to surface mount tweeter optimally.

Two weeks over #Warranty! One of the 6 .5 components blew. Called Crutchfield. They said they were out of warranty! Two weeks really, if JL audio stood behind their products two weeks shouldn't matter. Learning lesson for me I guess

Pros: Speaker sounded great for one year and two weeks!

Crutchfield customer from Grand Blanc, MI on 9/30/2021

2014 Chevrolet Volt

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

Purchased a pair of 650s and 650x. Powered using an Alpine kta 450 (4/50 w rms @4ohms). As others have mentioned, they're better than stock, but just not quite what the Dr ordered, frankly, I expected more from JL. I recommend trying a different model or brand if you'd like louder, fuller sound. Tweater install wasn't as difficult as instructions said, but they're pretty lackluster compared to my old infinity set. Overall, I would not repurchase and will definitely skip JL next time. And if you plan on just swapping the door speakers and not adding an amp, I'd suggest you reconsider. They were terribly underpowered before the aftermarket amp was added, 2014 Chevy Volt.

Pros: Easy install, hardware included.

Cons: Quieter vocals than expected, tweeters are not good.

no regrets having purchased these speakers. i read in one of the reviews stating the door speakers were not loud enough. I disagree 100%. they are plenty loud and the tweeters are just plain awesome. i had to turn the treble down some because the sound is so clean and crisp. the door speakers weren't to difficult too install. the tweeters required some altering but worth the effort on my toyota chr.

Pros: great sound

Cons: the tweeters are not a direct install replacement but it can be done

Fantastic upgrade for factory speakers

Peter from MEDFORD, MA on 9/5/2021

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

I have been doing cardio for almost 25 years I have add everything from 2 , 12 inch subs, Three amplifiers running at once, full component systems and all the zero gauge wire. I just picked up a 2016 Passat and I wanted to scale it back a little bit so I've decided just to replace the factory speakers. The radio sounded pretty good with the factory speakers but once I install the JLs there was a night and day difference the sound was more punchy and it was smooth and crisp as well. My only concern was that there was no -3 DB adjustment On the Tweeter but the way the tweeter mounted in the dash, it was not too bright at all I was very impressed. The one thing I did have to do was I went out and I purchased quarter inch foam strip to put on the door because the speakers don't have a gasket but not a big deal it was simple to install, along with the wiring adapter that was given free with Crutchfield, With a little bit of time they came out great. I wanna order the coaxial version of this when they are in stock I will definitely have them for the back speakers. Again these are ran with the factory radio no amplifier and they sound fantastic

Pros: Sound really well with factory radio, easy to install they have an in-line crossover no need for a bulky crossover Network

Cons: I wish they had a speaker gasket

Noticeable improvement with stock HU

2017 Honda Ridgeline

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

Installed in the front door on my 2017 Honda Ridgeline RTL-T with factory radio. The brightness of the tweeter really made a difference in my music quality and ability to hear high tones at volume. At lower volume the bass is comparable to stock but at increased volume these are crisp and the bass is tight. I did dynamat inner and outer door skin during installation. Crutchfield provided wiring adapters and speaker brackets were perfect in the door and the JL provided brackets were perfect in the A pillar. Thanks again Crutchfield!

Pros: OEM fit and finish with improved quality

Cons: None

Speakers installed easily and sound as anticipated. Installation instructions and data on the spakers were emailed at the time the speakers were shipped allowing for pre-planning prior to arrival. Woofers were shipped including wiring harness adaptor making the installation basically plug n play. Tweeters took a bit of adapting but nothing a person with a drill couldn't handle. Order arrived promptly in three days. Very satisfied with purchase, shipping, and installation information.

Gonna keep this short, bought these and was sadly disappointed. Maybe they were defective or IDK... Sound was super weak, muddied, and distorted. Replaced them with RF 165 components, same exact setup (just swapped the speakers) and it was night and day. Ran them on the JL 400/4 (awesome amp). Thanks to Crutchfield for top service BTW.

DO NOT BUY THESE IF: You are looking for loudness You want a lot of bass You want louder speaker than original stock speakers. I am NOT satisfied, they sound way too quiet for the asking price on these. The tweeters are complete trash. The lowest of the lowest volume . Only thing it's got going for them is the crisp and clear sound but what is the point when you can't really blast them since they are extremely low sounding. Disappointed

Pros: Sounds clean and crisp

Cons: Low bass Low music Low sound Low low low low everything is LOW. Not worth the price not if what you want is loud music.

Combined with JL Audio 250 RMS mono amp, JBL Stage 1200s 250 RMS sub, and Sony high powered head unit. The results are amazing. Their frequency range is great, Especially the highs. If your not a bass head, they provide plenty on the low end. They are very easy to install, thanks to the in-line crossover. I do not even look to see what is new regarding speakers anymore. This isn't a review for the amp and sub but the same goes for them.

Pros: Great range. Easy install.

Cons: None yet. ??

Pros: Easy installation Bass Loudness Crystal Clear sound

Cons: Not the best with stock radio their okay but will need to turn down treble due to tweeters definitely pick up high hertz

Solid product. I was expecting a little more bass from speakers at this price, but it gets the job done. Doesn't shake your car, but you can definitely feel the vibration. First time I ever opened up my door panel to replace a speaker, had no issues. Instructions from the manufacturer and website were extremely throughout. If you are looking for a first time replacement, I do recommend buying these from this website.

Pros: Easy to Install Good Bass Clear Instructions

Cons: Low end frequencies are lacking

Pounding Bass, Crisp Highs

Brian from Savannah, GA on 6/26/2021

2016 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

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

Upgraded my factory speakers in a 2016 Tahoe LS without adding an amp- just straight connections to factory stereo. WOW! The sound these speakers produce is incredible! I can't believe how much richness and clarity these speakers out out. Everything from the bass shaking low end notes to the highest octaves. With no experience in car audio whatsoever, I was able to install new front door and rear door JL Audio C1 speakers in less than 2 hours. Someone with experience could do it in half the time. I was considering adding an amp and sub when I originally ordered the door speakers and now I'm glad I saved the money because these speakers push out way more bass than I could have ever expected. My friend just spent $2,000 on a system and honestly, I like my factory stereo and JL Audio setup more. No wires to hire or amps to power, no expensive install since you get everything you need with the order. Really, a plug-and-play setup. I'm a fan for life of JL Audio!

Pros: Easy install Great Bass Affordable Rich sound

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I installed this set in my '99 Miata along with Noico sound deadening and custom plates. The Bose amplifier was deleted and replaced with a DS-18 80 Watts RMS x 4 mini amplifier. The subwoofer is a JL Audio 8W1 in a custom enclosure in the passenger footwell. I am a former custom car audio installer and have been involved in audio for almost 29 years. I used to sell and install JL Audio full time and have always been impressed by their quality. These C1-650 components are no exception. The yellow cones on the drivers reminded me of high end Focal speakers. Unfortunately, I was disappointed by the size of the woofer at first. It's not really a 6-1/2" speaker. It's barely a 6-1/4". But my worries were quickly gone when I listened to them. They sound really clean and get loud. They rival components that are much more expensive. I highly recommend them!

Pros: Price Efficiency Easy to install

Cons: The woofer is too small to be called 6-1/2" No low pass filter

I bought this product to replace bad speakers on my 2009 Nissan Versa. I was blown off by the quality and crispness of these speakers. The tweeters provide top quality highs while thrle 6 1/2 provides the more needed bass to complement. The best part of it is that I kept the entire factory radio system intact. The sound nrver distorted at high volume. Highly recommended.

This is the first set of components I've purchased that had this low of a power requirement and subsequently the first time I've run a set on only head unit power. They sound amazing. I installed them in my old 97' GMC Sierra and mounted the tweeter in the factory location. Did a complete overhaul and clean on the internals of the door, added some sound deadening material and wow! Great sound from a low power, inexpensive set of components.

I'm running these in my 05 Silverado extended Cab on a Boss BE7ACP head unit and have some kicker 4x6 in the back. These speakers and tweeters sound great and come with everything needed for mounting and have high end wire connectors. I drilled 3 holes to mount the new speaker trim adapters, one at two o'clock, one at 6 o'clock and one at 10 o'clock. To mount the tweeters I used the factory tweeter housings. I removed the factory tweeter using a flat head screw driver and drilled a hole for the JL tweeter wires to pass through. Would recommend these

Pros: Great sound and quality materials.

Cons: None

These are pretty nice, I really notice the clarity of the tweeters over the stock tweeters they replaced. There is however some background hissing noise always present now, even when the head unit is turned off. I don't know if it is the crossover or some sort of grounding issue, I have a pair of amps connected to the battery but they seem to be grounded properly. I will need to address this at some point because it will drive me bonkers if I ever drive without music. The door speakers are ok but I was really hoping for more mid-bass. They were supposed to round out my system, I have a 12" Rockford Fosgate P3 subwoofer in the back and these things still seem like they don't quite fill out the mid-bass like I was hoping. In a different car/install I had some nice Polks that hit much harder and deeper than these. I would have purchase Polk again but they were on backorder. Overall I'm happy with this purchase even though it doesn't fully meet my expectations.

Pros: Nice highs

Cons: Somewhat lacking in mid-bass

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

ALRIGHT YALL! I do not do reviews. Thats how impressed I am with these. So I have a 2019 Hyundai Elantra and the stock speakers are awful. I went to get them upgraded and was quoted $1800. I am not 18 anymore and have no desire for my car to bump down the road. I just want my music to sound good lol. THANK GOD one of my friend told me about Crutchfield. I chose to put the C1-650 in my front doors and the C1-650x in the back. Crutchfield hooked me up with the harnesses, mounts, and recommended a couple other tools I might need. They were cheaper than I could find online so I bought that stuff too. Glad I did-the swap took me about 15 minutes per door, saved me over $1500, and they sound AMAZING. I am so grateful! Thank you Crutchfield for being the best at what you do. You have a customer for life. If youre on the fence about whether or not these are for you-they are! BUY THEM.

Pros: cost easy installation amazing customer service dude, we can do this all day, read my review!

Cons: The tweeters dont have a simple harness hookup. The ones that come with it are very big, and would require cutting wires and such. So I didn't use them. Kind of a bummer, BUT combining these with the C1-650x gave me the sound I wanted. FOR ME.

Nice n loud, I like the sound of aluminum/titanium tweeters so I prefer these over soft dome. On factory amp power the sound was good but with a JL XD600 they sound so much better. Minor EQ tweaks to tune to taste. Low depth measurement was a help in my car

Tweeter terminals and wiring is a bad design. I tested them before installing and when connecting them it was tough with the spade connectors that were used. After testing when going to disconnect them the wires came out of the crimped connections. Also to add is the mounting space for the woofer is very thin maybe an 1/8 of an inch of mounting space. They sound good besides that but shouldn't have these issues with JL. Not much bass comes from these either. Yes they are hooked to an amplifier and tuned properly.

Pros: Good sound quality not very much bass comes from these though.

Cons: Too tight of spade connectors used withe the tweeters. Not enough surface area that i would for mounting the woofer.

Stellar Speakers

Crutchfield customer from Clinton, UT on 1/31/2021

2001 Toyota Camry

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

I installed these in a 2001 Toyota Camry with stock tweeters in the door sail. These fit perfectly. The tweeters fit the OEM bracket perfect and they even have the threaded screw hole. I was very pleased. The woofers fit the door, I just had to drill four new holes. I did not use the adapters. I cut the stock wiring as long as possible and used the included crimp lugs. The extra kit was great for the high density foam, that's all I used out of it. I installed the bypass filters for the tweeters and taped them to the existing door harness. I took my time and completed the installation in under three hours. I paired these with a JVC deck that pushes 50w. After spending some time tweaking the decks eq and other settings, I have to say that these speakers sound as clear and crisp as anything I've ever heard. They sound very lively. You really have to be able to eq them though. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these to anyone. I really love the sound I get out of them. I only wish I would have tried some JL Audio 6x9's for the rear speakers. I'm a really happy customer. Crutchfield is a great company and shipping was great, I had them three days after I purchased them.

Pros: Awesome speakers

Cons: Not one!

Less low-end performance than anticipated, though highs are accurate and clear. Installation of tweeter in my Volvo S60 required quite a bit of customization. Also, the crossover, while not overly bulky, was bulkier than I would prefer, especially in a door that already has a lot going on behind the paneling.

Pros: Value, high end clarity

Cons: Low-end somewhat lacking, bulky crossover

2015 Ford Fusion - Great Improvement

Bruce from Merrillville, IN on 12/17/2020

2015 Ford Fusion Hybrid

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

In my 2015 Ford Fusion, I wanted to replace the front 2 speakers, since the stock speakers are pretty weak. These JL speakers are just the thing I wanted. The stock OEM speakers in the Fusion lineup are embarassingly cheap, and weigh only about 6 ounces each for the WHOLE SPEAKER, with tiny magnets, so it was time for them to go. The JL speakers put out much more bass than stock OEM and a also output a noticeably lower frequency, as the magnets are like 5x heavier. The bass is clean and punchy. It is a great listening experience with minimal work if you just want a quick upgrade to the Fusion's stock system. They are a direct-fit replacement upgrade with the included adapter hardware and work with the OEM system. Instead of volume 19 now I listen at volume 21-22 since they require a little extra juice to run. Sometimes there is a bit of a coil buzz on my unit at powerful mids, especially with pianos when certain notes are hit. I don't know if it's a weakness of this model, or if my particular speaker is flawed. Either way, better than OEM. Well worth it.

Pros: Good bass Much better than OEM Direct fit Super easy to install

Cons: Sometimes slight speaker buzz with intense loud mids in piano tones Slightly more power needed to drive them than OEM

Horrible Warranty!

Alex from Peoria, AZ on 12/16/2020

2008 Honda Civic SI

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

Buyer beware! The factory warranty from JLA is useless! I received a tweeter that did not work out of the box, and is "open" when measuring the resistance. I did not get around to installing these until after the 60 day refund/exchange period so it is no fault to Crutchfield. So I was left to deal with the JLA warranty process. First of all, you are not dealing directly with JL Audio. They make you find an authorized retailer in your area that will act as a intermediary for some reason. In my case it was a local car audio shop. So I submitted to them my faulty tweeter as a warranty claim on Sept 16, 2020. It is now Dec 16, 3 months later and I have not received a repaired part or a replacement. The last communication I received was from the local car audio shop in early November saying there was a back order on parts and it wouldn't be replaced until Dec 10. Well that date has come and gone. How is it acceptable to wait this long for a resolution? I continue to wait till this day and I should just get something else and accept this as a loss. I am driving around listening to a sound system with a missing tweeter, so everyday I am reminded and annoyed by this issue. So let it be known that JL Audio does not care about it's customers.

These are a great upgrade from the factory speakers. The install is pretty straight forward when installed using the adapter rings and harness adapters. Using a little creativity, you can mount the tweeters without modifying the factory space/mount. The sound is clear and crisp, but with a RMS of 50w the factory head unit doesn't do them justice. I plan to amplify them with a minimum of 45w x4 RMS soon. Great value for the price so far! Mounted in the doors of a 2012 Honda Accord LX

Pros: Sound great Sturdy design Look good

Cons: Tweeter mounting options could be better

2008 Acura TSX

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

Installed these components in my front doors for my 2008 Acura TSX--paired with JL Kelley's Phantom amp (modified OEM plug and play amp). The supplied Scosche speaker adapters imo aren't ideal. I cut my OEM speaker to use as an adapter and drilled into it. I normally buy coaxials but they seem a bit bright when turned up. The OEM amp already seperates the mids and tweeters so I did not use the supplied crossovers--I'm not using a true amp anyways, just a modified OEM plug and play. After initial installation, I turned it up a bit, and was amazed. These speakers are very sensetive so they don't need much to power these up--obviously better with a true amp to match RMS. The clarity is absoloutely mazing. These sound like studio monitors in my car. I also sound deadened my doors and put FAST rings. I am a JL believer moving forward. Will be purchasing for my rear doors and 6x9.

Pros: Clarity, tight+loud bass, tweeters are nice without being harsh.

Cons: Did not purchase these earlier.

Got this to replace standard front speakers and tweeters on a 2011 Mercedes c300. I was not sure what to expect because of stock head unit ( no aftermarket amp ) and no sound deadening on doors. Also this is entry level c1. But when I started listening to music with new c1 the difference is night and day. The sound is crisp and excellent stereo separation. The mid bass and deep bass are improved. No rattling from door panels. Tweeters are smooth and detailed without being intrusive or overpowering. Even when you hold stock factory driver and tweeters they are very light and cheap. The jl c1 has superior build quality. This is a must install on factory stock system if you don't plan to do any other major work. Huge improvement in sound quality. Crutchfield shipping and experience was great always and they included all adapters and wiring harnesses. Thank you for helping me make a cheap but drastically noticable difference in my music system.

These are a great option for replacing your stock speakers. I have installed these on two different Toyota trucks and what a difference in sound.

Pros: Easy install, great sound.

Cons: None really

So glad I got these speakers. They were easy to install and they sound Awesome! Huge Improvement over the stock speakers. I wanted somthing that had good highs, mid range and lows. These fit the bill. Crank up the Beastie Boys!

Pros: Easy to install. They sound great

Cons: When I crank up the bass it makes the side panels vibrate. Have to figure a way to clear that up.

2013 Ford Fusion SE Tweeters fit the factory holes, and woofers fit great with the supplied mounting bracket. (Front doors) 90 minute job DIY and the supplied factory connections made it fairly easy. Sounds great on factory head unit without amp. Glad I bought the plastic prying tools for ease of panel removal. Speakers are probably a touch quieter than brand new factory speakers, but the clarity and the bass is great and I haven't amplified anything yet.

Pros: sounds great, price seems right for the quality. Fit factory without modification.

Cons: n/a

Nice Upgrade

2002 Chevrolet Avalanche

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

Good bang for the buck!! I should have done this years ago. This mid grade speaker set is a huge upgrade in sound quality from the low grade paper cone OEM speakers that came with my 2002 Avalanche. I used an old hacksaw blade as an installation point for the tweeter (see pic). The bag of hardware that came with the speakers was very useful. Note: Perform the installation with the window down so you'll know where to tie the crossover module and wiring to stay away from the moving window. Rear speakers are next.

Excellent sound from this component set. Replaced factory door speaker with a lower priced kenwood 2-way set. Was rather bland but ok. I figured I would splurge and get this set and move knewwods to the rear doors. This set was clearly better. I sent the kenwoods back and got a second set of these. For my rear install I chose not to add the tweeters though. I would get these Again. Wish these were available without the tweeters.

Pros: Great sound

Cons: Have to get these with the tweeters.

AnonAudioDude from Hattiesburg, MS on 10/12/2019

2016 Toyota Tundra

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

I bought these to replace a pair of Kicker KS 6.5" component speakers in the front door of my Tundra. I've had the kickers for a little over a year and have never been all that happy with them. They were expensive and the sound quality just wasn't that good no matter what amp configurations I threw at them. I installed these last night after work. I'm running them off of a KXA 800.5 amp and they sound fantastic- crystal clear audio at any volume. They don't require all that much power to drive so it doesn't take a lot to make these wake up. Mid bass is pretty good for me but that largely depends on your door and installation. Mid-range and highs are very clear. For the price these feel like a very good buy. I'm happy with my purchase, hope they stand the test of time. Also want to throw a comment in on the shipping- it was fast, didn't expect them to even get here this week. Thanks Crutchfield for the quick turnaround getting this out the door.

Pros: Clear sound, low power requirement, not too bright but definitely not muddy.

Cons: Didn't install themselves, but we can't have everything.

Chose these speakers because they sound good and require little power to do so. They are paired with a Kenwood receiver and amp and perform beautifully. They installed in the factory bracket in my 2000 Toyota 4runner (lower front doors), the tweeters went right on the factory bracket on the door column. Some have said these tweeters are too bright but I adjusted for that with my amp and they sound great. I'm not a basshead but bass is strong imo, midrange is very good.

Pros: great value, sound great, easy install

Cons: non

Just finished the install to my '06 Silverado front doors and I'm very happy with the kit and the sound. I may have done it a bit differently then most people but the parts work perfectly on my install. I centered the GM adapters in the stock opening and drilled holes to mount it then installed the Speakers. I removed the stock tweeter and took it apart keeping the plate section. The new tweeters were then surface mounted to the plate and reinstalled. I drilled new holes to mount the tweeter base to the plate as the stock holes did not line up enough for me. All the wires plugged in so no extra work was needed. All I did was add some wire looming to avoid any rub through and future shorts. The Crossovers were attached to the inside of the door panels with a very high strength adhesive pad used to hold motel room TV's in place. For the price? The speakers are everything I was told they would be for my HU and am very pleased with a quality sound I now have.

Pros: Everything needed comes with the speakers at a great price.

Cons: I have not found a single Con for my application.

These speakers are great! Sound is excellent for the price and it has all the JL quality that comes with the name. The cross over component is very small compared to other set ups so it makes it very easy to find a home for it behind the dash.

Pros: Great speakers for the price. Clear and crisp sounds. Small cross over makes for easy install.

Cons: Still trying to get used to the yellow cone that sticks out. Not a big issue.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I was looking to clean up the sound in my 10 year old Civic, after purchasing a new touch screen stereo from Crutchfield. I listen to a lot of Jazz, and the stock speakers couldn't handle a good standup bass riff. I also didn't want to loose my mind, or contents of my bank account, to install speakers in a car. Athena steered me towards these components for the front doors, and their brother C1-650x two-way speakers in the rear deck. Just what I wanted; and didn't deplete my savings. No more bass distortion, and the percussion is crisp and clear. Driving is a joy again.

Not impressed at all. Tweeters are a little harsh, and completely overpower the woofers. The woofers cannot handle much bass without distorting and sound muddy at higher volumes.

Fits 2018 Sprinter perfectly

Crutchfield customer from Bozeman, MT on 11/7/2018

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

Installed these using an adapter plate and they fit perfectly into the stock door locations on my Sprinter crew. The tweeters fit like a glove and dropped right into the standard pockets in the dash without any modification. Sound quality is much improved over stock, but because the woofers are located so low on the Sprinter doors, the highs definitely predominate. I added a sub and speakers on the back doors to balance out the soundstage. If I could change one thing it would be for the crossovers to be adjustable so that you could tune the setup a bit to dial in for your listening preferences, but overall I'm very happy with the purchase and the upgrade. As always, Crutchfield was great and the install with the new head unit was plug and play.

Pros: Good bass, easy install.

Cons: Non-adjustable crossovers prevent tonal tuning of tweeters.

Big Difference from the stock Alpine / Kicker

John from Orange, CT on 10/8/2018

I used these to replace some Kickers / Chrysler Speakers in my JK and the kickers had a much bigger magnet so I was QUITE concerned I just dumped 3 time the cash on something that wouldn't measure up. But honestly they do a much better job and the tweeters & crossovers work very well. It just takes some getting used to as the stock Tombstone tweeters weren't the best even after the capacitor mod. *BUT Word to the wise* These tweeters don not work with the tombstone style tweeters I actually had to silicone them in place.

Pros: Quality and nice separation

Cons: The tweeters do not fit properly in ALL JK Applications.

These speakers sound great, it's obvious that they are worth the money when you hear them. Crisp high's with punchy low's. Next step is to get an amplifier to help these and the Infinity Reference's I tossed in the front!

Pros: Beautiful design Amazing clarity

Cons: I should have bought more of them

They sound good

Installed in my 2001 Silverado ext. cab running off an Alpine iLX207. I sound deadened the entire cab and running these with Alpine SPS-410's in the rear doors and a JL 10TW3 driven by an M500. I have the C1's crossed over at 80 hz from the head unit, they sound nice with the rest of the setup. Since the 207 is 18 watts rms the C1's fit the bill if I had the money I would have went with C2's and a 4 Ch amp because they do sound better but need to be driven properly. Only 4 stars because if I used these to replace factory speakers on a factory headunit the lack of a good crossover would be disappointing.

Pros: Works well with aftermarket head unit.

Cons: Lack of crossover.

DO NOT HESITATE TO BUY IF THIS IS YOUR BUDGET

EXCELLENT SPEAKERS FOR THE PRICE. If this is your price range, don't even hesitate!!! I'm curious how a set of components could possibly be better. I might have to buy another pair of more expensive JL component speakers in the future to see how a set could possibly sound better. The woofers are more than powerful enough and the tweeters are incredibly soft and easy on the ears. Very clear and precise sound. These do get distorted at extremely high volumes but that is because they are only 50 watts. These are also incredibly easy to install, considering I was able to install them myself.,

Pros: Strong, clear subs Outstanding price Easy Install Soft, Precise tweeters that don't give you a headache at high volumes

Cons: Only 50 Watts RMS

These work very well as an upgrade to factory speakers, especially in combination with an aftermarket head unit or small 4 way amp. I would not recommend adding an amp to these unless you also have a subwoofer of some sort.

Pros: Comes with adapter to make installing in different applications easy. Clear sound at volume, price point

Cons: There yellow, no way to opt for the larger version of the C1 tweeter

Clear sound, but highs varry a lot

Joshua from Pike Road, AL on 5/3/2018

2007 Chevrolet Tahoe

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

I installed these JL Audio C1-650 door speakers in my front and rear doors and also the front pillar speakers in my 2007 Chevy Tahoe, which had Bose factory system. I paid more for these speakers compared to other brands, expecting higher quality sound. They are not as loud in the mid to low frequency as I hoped, and the high frequency varries from really loud piercing to soft depending on the song... simply too much varriance for me. However, I might just need to bypass the Bose factory Amp, or install an amp and run the speakers directly to it to avoid any volume throttling and adjusting that the factory amp might impose on the system. Over all, they sound good, just not as good as I was expecting.

Pros: Sounds clear and better than my factory Bose Speakers.

Cons: High frequencies varry from High pitch piercing sound to noticably soft.

better imaging, better sound, better drive. Lets roll!!!

Alex from Brooklyn, NY on 3/1/2018

2015 Toyota Corolla

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

Installed this for the first time in a toyota corolla 2015. It's Awesome!! Sounds so much better than the stock system!! Wow. I installed this system myself. It took me a few hours because I didn't do it before. I learned on the go. It wasn't as hard as I thought but I made sure to take my time with each step and make sure I knew what I was going to do before I did it. The tweeter fit in the hole where the twetter sits right now buuttt, it's a little hard in from the back, so I just cut out the old grill and slid it in and it is flush with the top. Looks amazing! I used strong hot glue in the back of it to keep it form moving or sliding out. It is a tide fit but from vibrations it might pop out over a few months. The bottom woofers fit with everything recommended at the time or purchase. It came with all the necessary installation hardware. The instructions were SPOT ON!! I did call technical support to clarify one issue with the wiring diagram and notes but I was just doing my due diligence. The instructions make sense and for my specific car there is a youtube video with further demonstrations and instructions in HD so that helped as well but everything was defenitely in the instructions. If the door panel electrical is hard to remove, you should note that it's removable from the outside. It's on with clips. I had an issue that the plastic clip keeping it together was broken so I couldn't squeeze it to pull it out. I removed the arm cushion and it slides out.

Pros: Love the system! Sounds better than stock. Fits wit brackets. Toyota made it a little hard but crutchfield has you covered. Spent 1 hour just with the doors closed listening to music. Taking it in.

Cons: In the instructions they could show how to remove the arm cushion but that's not a big deal it's kinda obvious if you take a look inside. Can't really hate on it.

Strong bass response and simple installation

Cameron from Apopka, FL on 2/28/2018

2016 Toyota Corolla

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

I used these speakers to replace the OEM speakers in my Toyota Corolla 2016 S Plus. The speakers fit wonderfully and did not interfere with any internal components. Along with the installation gear, it was basically a simple plug and play. I did have to do a small amount of modification to mount and wire the tweeter. The OEM speaker wires the tweeter in parallel with the woofer. I cut the wires on the tweeter harness, and used butt connectors to wire them together. I also used hot glue to mount the tweeter in the OEM location.

Pros: Great sound, loud highs, deep bass.

Cons: Slight modification to mount the tweeter in my vehicle.

I have always been a fan of JL, but I was leaning more toward the c2s originally. I took a chance to save myself a little cash and my only regret is not getting them sooner. These are a huge upgrade and will even handle a decent entry level amp. Definitely worth the price and provably the best bang for your buck.

Don't waste your money. I don't know what the other people on here are use to listening to but if your like me and you have owned JL products in the past and are expecting the same grate sound then your going to be let down. I currently have the C2 in my Scion XB and purchased these C1's for my jeep, didn't want to spend the extra coin if they could possibly be exposed to the elements. Difference from the C1 to the C2.... well quality, my C2's sound rich and full, the crossover works well in that in filters out what shouldn't get to the tweet and leave what should. I can't say the same for the C1's tiny hollow sound, very lack luster response from the tweet, and over all poor performance. After stuffing the sound bar with poly fill and adding gaskets to the sound bar, I installed the first component and tweet I instantly noticed that the right hand factory infinity sounded way better. I have since removed the installed speaker and tweet put tape over the hole in the sound bar that I cut, disposed of the evil things that I can't believe JL put there name on and I'll be waiting for some C2's to come in. If your just looking for a replacement then let me say that the kicker and the JBL's sound way better! If my first JL system hadn't turned me into such a fan boy I would be going that route myself.

I bought these speakers a month ago, so i already know this product well. I currently new to car audio , so i was looking for my first component speakers. To start out, i was impressed when started to hear these new speakers compared to my stock ones. In comparison these speakers will give you some good mid bass kick clarity from the tweeters. So If your a person like me who is going to upgrade thier stock speakers, Do it!! You'll be amazed.

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. Crutchfield provides instructions for you car, and adapters so you have have to do any modifications or wire cutting.

Great Imaging, Crisp and Clear!

Dan from Reynoldsburg, OH on 6/18/2017

2008 Honda Civic LX

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

Short version: Crisp and clear component set - major upgrade from stock speakers. Sounds fantastic even without an external amp. Local car audio guys told me that these are the best they've heard for this entry level class price point. Details: Installed in my 08 Civic LX in stock locations and they sound fantastic with my Sony Xplod head unit (pretty old, but still works well - 52wx4). I am a fan of crisp highs and solid mids and these deliver. The upgraded imaging in my car is what has me impressed the most. It actually feels like I can pick out the instruments and vocals and their locations in front of me. I did notice a significant reduction in lows/bass from the stock 6.5" speakers. These are component speakers, so that is to be expected. I'll add a sub to do it justice. These are about twice as loud as the stock speakers. The "crossover" to the tweeter seems to be more of just a high-pass filter as you connect it in parallel directly from the woofer, so more entry-level, but still sounds great. There was enough wire on the crossover to do the whole job without adding any cable. I believe this is still a 4 ohm set, even though the woofer/tweeter is in parallel. I used the mounting bracket for the woofer that Crutchfield provided as the universal one in the kit was thinner. I installed the tweeters in the stock location at the windshield and it sounds great. Would buy again. No reviews on the net yet - for lots of details, see review in photos. I

Pros: High quality tweeters Nice full, clear sound (mids and highs) Inexpensive for the sound quality that you get Quality construction

Cons: Universal mounting bracket included in the JL Audio box is fairly thin. It may have been fine, but Crutchfield included a mounting bracket with the free gear that was a perfect fit for my car.
