About the JL Audio C1-570x

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.

C1-570x

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

What sets C1 apart?

JL Audio designed the C1 Series C1-570x 5"x7" 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 Replacement Speakers!

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Replaced all four 20 year old factory speakers in my '99 Power stroke F250. Took less than two hours and the fit was perfect. Plug and play. Local shop wanted 2 hours at $65 an hour. I didn't know what I was doing and it didn't take me that long. Paired with my new Kenwood stereo I think they sound great! They were recommended by one of the techs here over another brand I was looking at and I'm glad I went with these. With these, the Kenwood and the added backup camera it brought my truck into the 21st century!

Great Sound overall

Perfect fit for my 2002 F250 Super Duty Crew Cab truck. Even though my truck had the 6 x 8 speakers in them these fit perfectly and the sound in the back seat is superb compared to the stock speaker that were in the truck. With the help of Cruchfield I got all the connectors and everything was just plug and play for my truck. NO cutting of wires just plug in and done, took about 2 hours for all 4 speakers to be installed.

Pros: Great sound, great fit, and work perfectly and sound in back of seat is now able to be heard.

Cons: none

Replaced my rear door speakers in my 2011 mazda 3with these and I couldnt be happier. I bought these intending to add an amp to them in the future so for now they are being ran off my aftermarket headunit and I can tell they are a little under powered but they still sound great. If my fronts needed this size is buy them in a heartbeat.

Pros: Great price for some solid speakers.

Cons: Did not come with any speaker wire, but I had my own so it turned out to be ok.

Great factory unit replacement

Jorge from Tampa, FL on 8/7/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Replaced the factory speakers in all 4 doors of my Mazda CX-9 with these. After seeing the factory speakers my biggest regret is not having done this sooner! JL Audio knows a thing or two about car speakers, these are their "entry level" speakers but blow away the factory units. I paired them with a new Kenwood head unit and a 50W compact amplifier also from Kenwood. I now look forward to get in my car, I even noticed I started driving slower just so I can spend more time listening to my new system, LOL.

I got these to replace the garbage speakers in my Mazda 3. What an improvement they are! Bass is good enough for them being just speakers and not actual subwoofers. The build quality of them is great as well. I would also like to add that Crutchfield is such an awesome company, with plenty of information to help both non-experienced and veteran car audio geeks. Definitely will be ordering from them again.

Pros: they look cool good bass for being speakers good musical clarity, high and low

Cons: none yet

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I returned some Infinity's for these speakers on the advice of Amanda. So far these are great speakers. I didn't like the Infinity's because they lacked Base. The highs were great but I needed more from my speakers. Amanda recommended these and I have to say I'm very happy with them. I wish they had more lows but I'm OK with buying a sub later down the road.

Pros: Mids and highs are great with mid base.

Cons:

I love these speakers. I didn't need anything high-end in my pickup truck, so I was just looking for something with clean, full sound, and these speakers are perfect.

Pros: Love the full, rich sound produced by speakers that are relatively inexpensive.

So pound for pound these are the best 5x7 speakers I have owned. They put the pioneers I have in my front door to shame and have particularly good mid-lows.

Guest from Nellis Afb, NV on 2/7/2018

2007 Ford F-150

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

Threw these in my 2007 F150 and everything matched up perfect. I took my time and listened to several different makes, and these by far were the best for the price point (in my opinion, everyone's ears are different). The highs and mids are extremely warm sounding and has a little bit of punch but does lack with bass, but I wouldn't expect much more out of a 5x7.

Pros: -Crispy highs -Warm mids -Doesn't distort the louder you crank the volume -has some punch

Cons: -lacks lows, but it's only a 5x7 so shouldn't expect much more

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

2011 F-350 Super duty factory basic head unit (no amps or sub). changed factory speakers out with Kicker CS68, sounded better than factory, but didn't blow my hair back. I originally installed the Kickers with Boom Mat baffles, sounded horrible (no bass, muddy), removed the baffles and was better, i've been told that car speakers are meant to be free air, so if your going to use baffles, cut a hole in them big enough to let them breathe. I then upgraded to the JL C1-570X in the front doors (again no baffles). huge improvement over factory and noticeable improvement over the Kickers. IMHO worth the extra money!

I put theses speakers in my 2013 f150 in the rear doors and they are a lot cleaner sounding than my factory speakers. I ordered c2 570s for the front and wish I would have put four of them in instead because they sound way better.

Pros:

Cons: Upgrade to the c2 570s you will be happier.

Tweeters: The ¾" edge-driven, aluminum dome tweeters are damped by a silk surround suspension.
