About the JL Audio C5-525cw

If you're looking to add bass to your ride without sacrificing trunk space, here's a great solution. Pair two of these JL Audio C5-525cw woofers with the right components for fatter, fuller guitar and bass in your soundstage.

If you're looking to add bass to your ride without sacrificing trunk space, here's a great solution. Pair two of these JL Audio C5-525cw woofers with the right components for fatter, fuller guitar and bass in your soundstage.

JL Audio built this 5-1/4" woofer for extended cone travel so it'll move more air, putting more oomph in your music when the rhythm section kicks in. This C5 Series woofer uses the same patented cooling technology developed for the ZR Series speakers, so it'll play with a wide dynamic range at all volumes.

If you've already got a sub in the back, adding two of these woofers is great for adding some midbass punch in your interior. Even better, install JL Audio's C5-525 5-1/4" component system up front, then use two of these matched woofers in the rear to reinforce midrange and upper bass performance while keeping your soundstage right up front.

Features

Cast Alloy Baskets: The Evolution C5 woofers feature cast alloy woofer baskets and incorporate JL Audio's patented Elevated Frame cooling system. This cooling technology, also found on the flagship ZR component systems and W7 and W6v2 subwoofers, allows air to flow directly across the top plate and onto the voice coil windings to greatly improve linearity at all listening levels.

Motor Structure: The DMA (Dynamic Motor Analysis)-optimized motor structure achieves outstanding linearity.

Woofer Cones: The cone and suspension elements were designed and manufactured by the world-famous Dr. Kurt Müller & Co of Germany. The speakers feature low-mass, mineral-filled polypropylene cones with butyl rubber surrounds. The cone and surround are inherently well damped to deliver an uncolored, neutral bass without any coloration. The speakers are also equipped with symmetrical-roll, hybrid-weave spiders.

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
It was a direct replacement for the factory Nokia Subs in my 98' BMW 540i w/DSP (rear deck subs accessed through trunk). Also, they are JL ..... Do I need to say any more? [ Brian  Dec 18, 2015 ]

Q
How does this fit a 6X9 subwoofer hole? This was recommended for a 2007 Ford fusion SEL with rear deck speakers that are 6X9.

We carry brackets that we include free with the purchase of the speakers that shrink the opening to hold this speaker. You can see those brackets here: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_142SA69/item.html My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101

Q
Does this JL Audio C5-525cw sub fit in the trunk lid of a 2009 Subaru Legacy GT with Harmon and Kardon sound system and automatic climate control?
[ Mr. Baker  Jul 20, 2017 ]

A
We know there is a subwoofer in the center of that rear deck, but we were not able to research it to find out its size. You might consider taking it to a local installer so they can measure. Or if you can get the subwoofer out, you can call an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 for help. If you go this route, be ready to measure a few things in the vehicle where the subwoofer was installed.

Q
Bolt Hole Circle Diameter?
[ Matt  Dec 09, 2015 ]
1 answer
A
There is no specification provided for the diameter of the mounting screw holes themselves. JL Audio recommends using standard sheet metal or machine screws (#8 or #6 for sheet metal screws) with a length between 1" (25mm) and 1.25" (32mm). I hope that helps!
