About the JL Audio C2-525
I've installed enough car speakers to know that if you're going through the effort of taking off your door panels and creating tweeter locations, you'll want to choose a well-built speaker system that's going to live a long life in your car. Well, you've landed on the right page — this JL Audio C2-525 component speaker system is about as sturdily built and smooth-sounding as it gets for the price.
Powerful woofers for satisfying sound
Framed by a stamped steel basket, the 5-1/4" mineral-filled polypropylene woofer delivers the low frequencies reliably play after play, giving a solid foundation to your favorite music. The butyl rubber surround supports a cone that's designed for extra excursion, giving extended low-frequency response.
Silk tweeters and versatile crossover networks
The C2 3/4" silk dome tweeters gracefully handle the high-frequencies, broadcasting crisp musical detail evenly and without harshness. JL Audio includes surface- and flush-mount hardware so you'll be able to install the tweeters in the best possible location in your vehicle. Separate crossovers use premium components to direct the signal flow to your woofers and tweeters, and you can select from the three levels of tweeter attenuation to match the speaker system to your listening environment.
Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

Two-way Crossover System: The C2 component system utilizes a true 2-way crossover system with Mylar capacitors and air-core inductors:
- High Pass: second order (12 dB/octave slope); three tweeter level settings are selectable via jumper pins: +2.0 dB, Reference, and -3.0 dB
- Low Pass: first order (6 dB/octave slope)
Tweeter Protection: The crossover network has an electronic tweeter protection circuit built in; it monitors the current and disconnects the tweeter when it senses and overload. The circuit automatically resets once the overload is removed.
Crossover Wiring: The terminal strip will accept bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.31" wide.
- Width: 3.365"
- Height: 1.445"
- Depth: 4.732" (plus wire)
Connection Note: The C2 component system comes with no speaker wire. Instead, a number of spade connectors and quick slides are included in the hardware pack to be crimped onto speaker wire you provide.
Power Handling: JL Audio publishes several power specifications for this speaker system, 60 watts continuous power handling (RMS), 225 watts peak music power, and 15-100 watts recommended amplifier power (RMS). We've listed the conservative combination of 15-60 watts RMS in the specs table.
