About the JL Audio C2-690tx
JL Audio's Evolution C2 Series speakers
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
The C2-690tx 6"x9" 3-way speakers feature rugged polypropylene cones that can handle high power without distortion, so you get full-bodied low tones you can really feel. The 2" Mylar midrange drivers handle the vocal range, while 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. Built-in crossovers make sure your tunes play smoothly across the whole musical spectrum. JL Audio includes a pair of grilles for custom installations.

Woofers: The JL Audio Evolution C2-690tx speakers feature injection-molded, mica-filled polypropylene woofer cones with polyether foam surrounds. Each woofer has a 1¼" voice coil and a flat-profile/symmetrical-roll spider.
Midrange: The 2" Mylar cone midrange drivers are ferrofluid cooled. The sealed back design provides clean, crisp midrange.
Tweeters: Each speaker features a ¾" silk dome, ferrofluid-cooled tweeter with a 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.
Power Handling: JL Audio publishes several power specifications for this speaker, 70 watts continuous power handling (RMS), 225 watts peak music power, and 15-125 watts recommended amplifier power (RMS). We've listed the conservative combination of 15-70 watts RMS in the specs table.
The JL Audio C2-690tx replaces these items

I gave these JL Audio speakers a five because I have tested so many other 6x9's on the market, to go into my Harley Road Glide saddlebags and actually kick up some dust. These really did the job. If you like sound quality and thumping bass, then you will not be disappointed by these at all.
