About the JL Audio C2-690tx

JL Audio's Evolution C2 Series speakers

Silk tweeter and Mylar midrange 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

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.

Product Research

Features

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.

Q
Why do you say that these don't fit a 2007 Dodge Ram 2500? Just put a pair in today, bolted right in without any modification. Left original spacer ring from factory speakers in place to get the needed spacing in door and there they are perfect fit!

Q
should I run these off an amp or just a head unit that says 50x4?
[ Dude  Apr 17, 2015 ]
9 answers
A
amp
[ TOM  Aug 28, 2015 ]
A
I have these audio monitors. They are directly connected to my 150 Watt amp.
[ Thomas  May 20, 2015 ]
A
Either way will give you great sound from these speakers
[ john  Apr 21, 2015 ]
A
While you will get good sound out of a head unit only, an amp is going to give you a broader range of volumes that the speakers will be able to produce the ideal sound. I did mine in phases, and started with the the speakers and the head unit, and sounded nice until I had enough in budget to buy an amp, and that took it to a whole different level. So don't be afraid to start with just the speakers and head unit, and then upgrade later to an amp when you can afford a nice one.
[ JON A  Apr 21, 2015 ]
A
Amp would be ideal, but they will sound good off of the head unit.
[ SHELDON  Apr 18, 2015 ]
A
Head unit would be fine, but an amp would provide the best results, both on loudness and quality.
[ Joshua  Apr 17, 2015 ]
A
hey are realy good sounding even on just the deck
[ DOUG  Apr 17, 2015 ]
A
You can tell they have a lot of potential, but running them without an amp is not using their quality at all. Without a doubt run an amp and they will be amazing.
[ Jenny  Apr 17, 2015 ]
A
I have a pair of JL C2690tx in the back deck of my mustang and I'm about to install them in my Camaro also. They will be severely under powered from a head unit. The RMS wattage is probably only 15-20 watts. The 6x9's need at least 75 watts to get the sound you're paying for with the speaker. Hope this helps!
