About the JL Audio C1-100ct

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.

Take your highs to a new level

These C1 Series C1-100ct 1" aluminum dome tweeters stand apart from other component tweeters at this price. Their edge-driven design gives you a smooth response and minimizes distortion. You'll experience crisp detail in the high frequencies and incredible imaging that will make your factory tweeters hide in shame. Included in-line high-pass filters ensure that these tweeters receive the right frequencies, and JL Audio supplies flush- and surface-mount solutions for the perfect installation.

Features

Tweeters: The 1" edge-driven, aluminum dome tweeters are damped by a silk surround suspension. Flush and surface tweeter mounting brackets are included.

Tweeter Dimensions:

  Frame Diameter Cutout Diameter Mounting Height Mounting Depth
Flush Mount 1.970" 1.734" 0.330" 0.931"
Surface Mount 2.005" Screw Holes Only 0.872" 0.535" (Screw Depth)

Crossovers: The in-line tweeter crossovers are 2nd order (12 dB/octave slope) and the 30" input and 15" output wires are attached. The input wires are terminated with female quick slides and the output wires are terminated with male quick slides that plug into the terminals on the wires attached to the tweeters. The electronic tweeter protection circuit is designed to minimize the possibility of tweeter failure. It monitors current going to the tweeter and will disconnect the tweeter from the signal when it senses overload. Once the volume has been reduced, the protection circuit will reset itself automatically.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Width: 2" (3" including wire)
  • Height: 1"
  • Depth: 1-3/8"

Q
Hello I'm running 6.25 component front, 6x9 3-way's rear doors, with an audio tuner all powered by a 4 channel amp. As well as a mono powered 12" sub in the cargo. I'm wondering if supplementing my system with these will help with range equity at higher volumes. If so how would I wire these into my system and where would be the best install spot; non-specific, i.e front pillars, rear pillars, cargo area? I drive a Honda Pilot. Thanks!!

It sounds like you have a pretty sweet setup, Leon! IF you feel like you need some more cymbals and hi-hats to even out the bass from the 12" sub, you can always add another set of tweeters for a total of 4. I would recommend matching the tweeter construction material, just to make sure all those tweeters mesh well together. If you are using aluminum tweeters in the front components now, the JL C1-100ct are an easy add. If your 4 channel amp is 2 ohm stable, you can run fresh wires from channels 1 and 2 and use the included inline crossovers with the JL C1-100ct tweeters. Install location is captains choice there, where ever you feel is best and will add the most to the sound field. I hope this helps!
