These were purchased for rear door installation and matched with C5 components in front doors. Excellent sound and a great complement to the front speakers.

I purchased these speakers (JL C5-650x) along with some Focal EC 165K2 at the same time. I have two Camaro's which I put each set of speakers in both cars along with Alpine PDX F6 amps in both cars as well. Both are awesome sounding speakers, but I finally favor these JL's because they are a bit warmer and natural not as bright as the Focal and the low end frequency response of the JL's are 48hz vs 60hz on the focal, which is a noticeable difference in delivering lower clean bass notes.

Definitely one of the best speaker purchases I've made. I had upgraded the stock speakers once before to an entry level Infinity set I took off an old car; component fronts and coaxial rears. I also hooked up a small Alpine KTP-445u amp and was content with what I had a the time. Then I bought my wife a new car with a much better stock system. I just had to upgrade my sound system now. Unfortunately, the market just isn't want it used to be but JL Audio still provides some stellar products. I gave myself a good budget and started looking. I considered other manufacturers and also looked at JL's ZR series but really do prefer the sound of silk dome tweets. I bought myself two sets of JLs; component C5-650 fronts and C5-650x coaxial rears. I can't say enough on the build quality. However, these speakers are deeper and bulkier than my old speakers, so the install took a little more work. In a nutshell, I had to modify all the door panels and come up with some custom spacer with the supplies provided. Nothing too difficult. I ran the speakers for a week with the smaller Alpine KTP-445u then finally found time to properly wire the JL MX500/4 amp I bought with the speakers. It is night and day difference! DO IT! Buy a good amp. The mid-bass isn't car rattling but completely satisfying IMO. There's also sounds in my music I've never heard before and am finally experiencing it for the first time. Did I say AWESOME speakers?
Pros: Provides satisfying bass. Everything I've wanted from a full-range speaker.
Cons: External crossover (for those who are limited with space)

Ordered these for my 2008 Jeep Wrangler sound bar. They were not recommended to fit in my case, but fit perfectly. (I did use the Jeep Wrangler speaker adapter rings.) Was looking for something to cut through the wind noise as here in Texas we can go most of the year with the top down and I practice this faithfully. These speakers do this with ease at freeway speeds and deliver plenty of smooth balanced tone at top volume.
Pros: A joy to listen to, and look forward to listening to them on the ride home from work each afternoon.
Cons: None so far.

Just upgraded to all JL C-5 speakers in my 07 Jeep Grand Cherokee, tweeters in the dash, 650 components in front doors and 650x in rear doors, worth the extra money and all C-5 is the way to go, sound quality is crystal clear and there not even broken in yet
Pros: Sound quality !!!
