About the JL Audio C5-400cm-Single

Product Research


Removable Mounting Tabs: Most 4" factory speakers use four mounting screws. However, in some vehicles, only two mounting holes are used. In these cases, you can bend any unnecessary mounting tabs on the C5-400cm midrange until they break off. The tabs are scored specifically for this purpose. Care should be taken in handling the speaker because the broken edges may be sharp.

Woofer Cones: The cone and suspension elements were designed and manufactured by the world-famous Dr. Kurt Müller & Co of Germany. The speakers feature low-mass, mineral-filled polypropylene cones with butyl rubber surrounds. The cone and surround are inherently well damped to deliver an uncolored, neutral bass without any coloration.

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.
