About the JL Audio C2-650X

JL Audio's Evolution C2 Series speakers

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.


Silk tweeter delivers smooth highs

Silk tweeter

The C2-650X 6-1/2" speakers feature rugged polypropylene cones that can handle high power without distortion, so you get full-bodied low tones you can really feel. The 3/4" silk dome tweeters serve up smooth-sounding high frequencies that won't tax your ears, adding a satisfying dose of realism to your soundstage.

JL Audio C2-650X

Crutchfield customer from Eden Prairie, MN on 9/11/2019

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

Really like the sound quality of these. The Crutchfield tech support is outstanding. Really the only place one should buy this kind of equipment.

Pros: Outstanding sound reproduction. Reasonable bass. Using as front speakers and harder bass hitting Pioneers for rears.

Cons: Relatively expensive. Definitely needs to be driven by amp to get maximum performance

These are phenomenal. I couldn't believe the nice low end that they produce. Very clean speaker. I used them in the back doors of a 2019 Ford F250 with the B&O 1000w system. Sounds so good, I'm probably not going any further with the system.

Pros: Great, clean, clear full range speaker

Cons: Makes you want to buy more of them.

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

I'll start with saying this. I love JL speakers and amps I've run them for years in auto and marine applications. I'm less than impressed with these to be honest. Installed in a 2016 Sierra Denali, Did away with the factory bose speakers and factory amp. After hours of adjustments etc. Sound quality is decent, my opinion they don't hold bass well at all. And they distort after a few minutes of higher volume. I've spent a lot on this system, with 4 door speakers, dash speakers. JL amp, and a sound processor. And i'll be honest i think the factory bose overall sounded better quality than these.

Pros: JL Name..

Cons: My opinion, they don't handle bass well. Distort after a few minutes at high volumes.

Coupled a pair of these to a JL JX400/4-channel amp and the sound is incredible! The 6 1/2 cone handles the mid-low freqs very well providing solid bass while the separation of sound with the tweeters gives a full sound I wasn't expecting.

Pros: The sound quality is way better than expected!!

Perfect all around coaxial I installed in front and rear of my 15' Tacoma double cab. I have paired with a Kenwood aftermartket HU and 10" JL W3 It's night and day when it came to highs mids and low end compared to the factory paper woofers. I listen to every style music and they work great for all. Extremely easy install all 4 doors took a total of 1 hr out of my day! I'll always trust JL everything and a big thanks to Crutchfield. A must buy for those looking to upgrade from factory and still get the great clarity of a component all in one package.

Pros: Highs, Mids, Lows, and Price

Sound amazing

Keith from Hilliard, OH on 5/30/2016

2015 Subaru Forester

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

I really like these speakers. They play much louder than I can stand and are distortion-free. The only thing to note is in the spec section. They list the wattage at 15-100 RMS. The box that the speakers are packaged in says 60 W RMS with an amp suggestion of 15-100 W. So just know that these are not really 100 W speakers. I have them connected to an MTX Thunder 75.4 and only have the gain set at about 2/3 and they sound amazing.

Pros:

Cons:

Crutchfield response on 6/7/2016
JL Audio lists two power figures in the manual; 60 watts continuous power handling and recommended amp power 15-100 watts RMS. We've listed the RMS power recommendation in the specs table.

Rockin Great Speakers !

The Builder from Orlando Florida USA on 6/17/2015

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

Purchased a Kenwood DPX301U CD RADIO from Crutchfiled with some Kenwood KFC-1665S speakers. Well the radio was a huge improvement over the factory Toyota OEM Pioneer in my Scion XB2005. The speakers that I purchase well they sucked compared to the quality of the Kenwood radio. There was no bass response from these speakers at all and they are really designed for use in general use low volume applications at 4ohms. So - I returned the set to Crutchfield and got these units. As usual shipped with mount adapters, wire harness etc. Took about an hour and a half to install (some minor technical difficulties with the Metra 82-8148 Speaker Mounting Brackets supplied hardware) but after a trip to my local hardware store All Good. The Kenwood DPX301U RADIO does have a ton of settings but after setting the Audio Output for these speakers I now have the nice deep bass and treble of that I was use to (but even better) that factory. These speakers are designed to handle a lot of power (Im not using a power amp at all and its plenty for me) Im sure you dudes out there who need to see your teeth rattled can do it with these units. They are JL and these remind me of the TS-6905 Pioneer Speakers days of past. Due to the fact I drive a mini box car and space if very tight these fit with no issue at all. They are well built and I cant complain at all for the performance. The build quality of the speakers themselves are close to PRO Sound quality you cant beat it for the price. JL's for me !

Pros: EXCELLENT SPEAKERS !

Cons: None

2012 Jeep Wrangler

Smitty from Florida on 1/11/2015

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

I installed these in the dash of my Wrangler with the base audio system. Crutchfield does not list these as a fit but I'm not sure why. It may be because they are not direct fit. The speaker pods are plenty big enough for them. I placed poly fill in the pods while I had them out. I used the template included to mark and drill four new holes for the speakers. To seal the frame to the pod, I cut the backs off of some XTC speaker baffles that I had laying around. After installing the pods back into the dash, I disconnected the factory tweeters. I experimented with removing the rubber plug from the rear of the pod to vent the enclosure versus sealed. The bass was much tighter and more defined with the plugs installed for a sealed enclosure. This makes the speakers less efficient but I am planning to add another set to the soundbar and install an amplifier. Using the fader control to compare the OEM speakers to the JL Audio speakers displayed just how much better these are over the OEM speakers. They do not play quite as loud but they sound so much better that I am listening to the fronts only. The tweeters are very detailed allowing you to clearly hear the instrument instead of the general "hiss" or "ting" sound that low end mylar type tweeters generally produce. Listening to speakers like this on factory stereos usually generates lower reviews because of the low power and OEM equalization.

Pros: Clear and tight midbass, with excellent vocal quality. Tweeters are smooth and detailed while not being harsh or overly bright.

Cons: I wish they had a foam sealing ring.

Rear fill speakers

Chris from Lansing, MI on 1/3/2015

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

Speakers were used as rear fill in a 2014 Subaru Impreza. Spacers, baffles, and fast rings were used as well in the install. The speakers do sound nice. I installed the speakers and ran them off the head unit for a couple of days before I installed the amp and C5-650s. They really do sound nice without the amp. They work awesome as the rear fill with the C5-650s.

I bought these speakers for the roll bar in my 2012 jeep wrangler unlimited. They fit, but they don't fit the existing screw holes. You have to make your own screw holes. I bought them for filler, because I have the JL Audio c5 components in the front. I am powering them off a JL Audio HD 900/5. I was pleasantly surprised with how great they sound. Very clear and nice and punchy. Very good detail.

Pros: Sound quality

Cons: None do far

Nice Sound that doesn't Break the Bank

LuisV from Westchester, NY on 6/11/2012

2011 Subaru Impreza

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

For the price you can't go wrong with these speakers. They handle a good amount of power and sound better than their price point suggests. These were purchased as rear fill and to complement a set of JL Audio C2650 component speakers. Their mid to low end sound very similar to the components; however, the upper registers sound slightly different to me. Although there is a slight sonic difference, I would still recommend them to friends and family as the ever so slight sound difference is more than likely due to the lower tweeter mount.

Pros: Great price point, can handle plenty of power and sound better than their price point would suggest.

Cons: Could possibly benefit from an angled tweeter mount.

Incredible.

ashevillain from Asheville, NC on 6/5/2012

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

These speakers are incredible. I purchased 2 pairs to install in my 2003 Civic EX Sedan. Crutchfield doesn't list these as compatible with this vehicle but I always like a good challenge. For the front doors the mounting depth (magnet and basket) is too deep for the speaker wells. I used some 3rd party speaker adapters and also had to add some rubber grommets to get a bit more spacing. In the rear deck the mounting height (tweeter protrusion plus speaker adapter) is listed as the roadblock. Well, Crutchfield sent the wrong adapters to begin with and the 3rd party adapters I had didn't line up with the holes either. So I did an easy workaround. Mounted the speakers directly to the factory mounting holes via speed clips! In both cases I also used some Dynamat to deaden any noise (also gave a tiny bit of spacing between the sheet metal and the speaker). The Dynamat cleaned up the sound immensely. I paired these speakers with a Kenwood KDC-X496, which outputs 22w RMS. In combination with these speakers that are closer to 3.5 ohm actual, this system outputs quite a bit of sound. In my opinion this is the best sound I've ever heard out of a system with no sub and no external amplification! It depends on the CD but the one quality that I could possibly see people having a problem with these speakers is if you are listening to anything with a very bright sound you will need to attenuate the treble a bit.

Pros: Incredible sound.

Cons: Have to do some minor extra work to install in 2003 Civic Sedan.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Fitted to a 2009 WRX 5dr hatch. Installed these matched with the factory base stereo and they sounded awful but that was to be expected as they were under powered. I then swapped in the upgraded factory stereo that puts out more power and they really came alive and sound awesome. I plan on getting an external amp to run these and hope that wakes them up even more. Price on Crutchfield was a bit expensive compared to other online retailers, but after you figure in the free shipping, free mounting rings, and wiring adapters you come out pretty much even.

Pros: Sound great

very happy with results

Jeff from Des Moines, IA on 4/16/2010

2008 Chevrolet Express

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

I purchased these speakers to replace the factory GM speakers in the door of my RV that is built on a Chevy Express 3500 chassis. The dash stereo has these two speakers and that is it. I am very happy with these speakers. They fit precisely, just as Crutchfield's tool said they would. The speaker wiring harness was a nice touch from Crutchfield, allowing me to easily switch these out without modifying the wiring at all. There is a very large difference between the factory GM speaker and these. The factory speakers were basically giving me mid-range and that was it. These speakers have much greater range. I can hear the bass now where before it didn't even come out of the factory GM speakers. As I cycle through the EQ settings of my JVC in-dash stereo, I can actually hear the changes. Before, as I cycled through the EQ settings with the factory speakers I basically heard very little change. The only thing that I wonder is if these were worth the price. There are many other 6.75" speakers available that also get high reviews for $80, $100, $125, etc. I wonder if I would notice any difference between them and these? If I forget about the price that I paid for these, then I am very happy.

Exceptional

MrCrispie from Hays, KS on 1/20/2010

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I am a self proclaimed audiophile with medium-budget tastes. I like bang for my dollar. I started out with full Alpine Type-S speakers in my Mitsubishi Eclipse, and was pleased with the full-spectrum response i received from them for months. I am still using the Alpine MRP-F300 4 channel (50W X 4) amp with my new JL C2-650x speakers. They are in the doors as well as in the back. When I installed them, I installed one speaker in the back and left one Alpine Type S in the other side, set my Headunit to isolate each speaker, to hear the difference. Night and day. I am a stickler for midbass response and mellow tweeters that don't pierce my ears. At high volumes, there is no distortion across the board (heavy metal, hip hop, rap). I know people are wondering how these things perform across all genres of music...I have played them to their fullest extent (after the break in 4 hours) and cannot make these things budge from sounding absolutely phenomenal. The midbass surprised me. They hit clean, distortion free, and hard. If you are looking for a speaker that shines across all volumes, is clear, exceptionally clear, very very mellow flat tweeter response (no shrieks, no brightness at all) , look no further. JL has produced some of the most amazing sounding speakers in its C2 line. I am hard to impress. These impressed me.

Product Research

Features

Woofers: The JL Audio Evolution C2-650x coaxial speakers feature injection-molded, mica-filled polypropylene woofer cones with a butyl rubber surround. Each woofer has a 1" voice coil on a Kapton Former, a symmetrical roll spider and a Ferrite magnet.

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.

Size Classification Note: Some manufacturers, including JL Audio, call this size speaker a 6½". Because it requires a larger cutout than a standard 6½" speaker, Crutchfield has traditionally referred to this size as 6¾". Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.

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.

Want to install in a 2015 Silverado Crew Cab without Bose, will these make any noticeable difference?

Installed this in my 2015 Tacoma in the front and back doors. The difference is night and day from the highs to surprisingly impressive lows. I will say I paired with a Sony XAV-AX100 head unit which gave it some new life also but would highly recommend these jl's, they're the next best thing without upgrading to components and an amp. Hope this helps!

What front door speakers will be compatible with the 2014 Mazda3 GT (Bose System)? I've been reading a lot online saying it's very specific and difficult to swap the front door speakers in the setup, but my front left one is rattling like crazy. Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you.

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up research on your '14 Mazda and see which speakers will fit & work correctly with the stock Bose system. Thanks :)

Q
I have a 2017 Accord Touring. Am I going to see a difference by just changing out the rear deck speakers and using the factory amp?
[ Gwhite  Oct 25, 2017 ]
2 answers
A
This question is always subjective at best and really hinges off on how and what one hears. I have installed two pairs of these, one in my 2016 Silverado and one pair in my 2014 Indian Chieftan, and without fail I do hear a difference. The clarity at all volume levels is cleaner than my factory speakers and on the bike, the point at which the speakers distort is higher. Bass, while not as strong as some would like is solid, but where they excel is in the highs which are not as "tinny" sounding as in the factory speakers. Prior to these, I always opted for Infinity Kappas or Polk Audio but once I listened to these I was sold. They have now become my go-to speaker and amp of choice. Hope that helps.

Q
What kind of bracket is it? What's the size?
[ Jason  May 16, 2014 ]
2 answers
A
All plastic one size fits all bracket. Two sets of spots to screw in speakers depending on which size you get. What I didn't like was for the smaller size it had metal clips to screw through to reinforce the holes but for the larger size there were slots instead of holes and no metal reinforcements for them. Seemed not the best but was free. I plan to reinforce the screws more with some epoxy next time I open my doors to put in dynamat.

Hi! I'm not really sure what you are asking. I will be glad to help. What bracket are you referring to? And the what size are you referring to? I out these in a jeep wrangler and used the existing holes and made new ones. Maybe a little more custom than you might want to do. Ask me anything and I will try to answe the best way I know how!
