Side view of Evolution C2 speaker JL Audio's Evolution C2 Series speakers bring precision sound to your vehicle. They'll reproduce subtle elements of your music like delicate woodwinds or soprano vocals, then turn on a dime to deliver the deep thrum of the bass or thunder of the drums.

Features

Woofers: The JL Audio Evolution C2-525x coaxial speakers feature a 5¼" injection-molded, mica-filled polypropylene cone woofer with a butyl rubber surround. The woofer has a 1" voice coil on a Kapton Former, a symmetrical roll spider and a Ferrite magnet. These carefully engineered cones deliver the right combination of stiffness, damping, and off-axis response. The speaker also provides adequate bass, thanks to its ample mechanical clearance, optimized suspension and balanced motor design.

Tweeters: Each coaxial speaker features a ¾" silk dome, ferrofluid-cooled tweeter with a damping neodymium magnet. The edge-driven silk dome tweeter is smooth, detailed (on or off axis), and provides great overall performance. Silk is lightweight and great for high frequency extension and efficiency. It is also designed for durability in the extreme automotive environment.

Grilles: Front-loading protective grilles are included, with black steel mesh and satin silver accents. Electroformed logo nameplates can be positioned on the grilles or elsewhere in the vehicle, according to the needs of the installation.

Power Handling: JL Audio publishes several power specifications for this speaker, 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.

Q
Are thise water resistance?
[ Cisco  Mar 23, 2019 ]

Hi, I would say they are moisture resistant due to the poly construction. If you want a good water resistant speaker I would go with the marine application. Either one will not disappoint . I put the set you are asking about in the doors on a GMC truck. But I also have a set of the marine speaker in my motorcycle fairing. Both the same size. Also the folks at Crutchfield won't steer you wrong. Good listening Brian

Q
I want to fit these in the rear deck of my 1993 SC400. I would have to make a new base to to bolt down for OEM placement. What diameter does the hole for the new base be for these to drop flush?
