About the JL Audio VR525-CSi
The Evolution VR component speaker systems reflect JL Audio's extensive research into speaker construction. They faithfully reproduce subtle nuances of delicate sounds like woodwinds or female vocals, yet still deliver the soul-shaking boom of an electric bass and the "thwack" of a rock'n'roll kick drum.
The VR525-CSi component system features 5-1/4" woofers that handle high power without compromising sound quality, giving your bass some real definition and impact. The smooth-sounding 3/4" silk dome tweeters deliver the high-frequency detail that adds ambient realism to your music. And JL Audio's variable mounting system with swivel and rotation capabilities permits you to aim your tweeters precisely after installation.
The VR crossovers offer electronic protection circuits that ensure reliability by preventing overload damage. The VR crossovers also feature 2-position tweeter level controls that allow you to adjust high-frequency response to match up with woofer output.

Woofers: The JL Audio Evolution VR-series component speakers feature injection-molded, mica-filled polypropylene cone woofers with 1" voice coils and flat-profile, symmetrical-roll spiders. The woofers feature long excursion and enhanced low-frequency extension for power, more realistic bass. The woofers use butyl rubber surrounds for reliability and strength.
Tweeters: The VR-series 3/4" silk dome component tweeters are precision manufactured in Germany. The tweeters feature powerful, ferro-fluid cooled and damped neodymium magnets. You can mount the tweeters in the supplied flush-mount or surface-mount fixtures. When the tweeters are flush-mounted, the RSR (Ratcheting Swivel/Rotation) mounting system allows the tweeter to be rotated and/or angled for optimum imaging. The flush-mount fixtures can be used with or without the supplied trim ring.
Tweeter Mounting Dimensions:
|Mounting Fixture||Mounting Depth||Mounting Height||Frame Diameter||Cutout Diameter|
|Flush Mount||With mounting ring||0.505" |
(1-5/8" screw depth)
|W/O mounting ring||0.569" |
(1-5/8" screw depth)
|Angled Surface Mount||N/A |
(7/8" screw depth)
Crossovers: The VR-series components use premium Mylar capacitors and air-core inductors on the 4th order high-pass filters. The woofer is unfiltered, using its engineered smooth roll-off characteristics to blend with its tweeter. Each crossover has a 2-position Tweeter Level Control designed to compensate for different mounting locations, vehicle interiors, and personal taste. You can choose "Reference", or if the sound seems too harsh or aggressive, switch to the -3dB setting. Crossover Dimensions: Width=3.15", Height=4.74", Depth=1.1"
Electronic Tweeter Protection: The VR crossovers are equipped with an advanced electronic tweeter protection circuit designed to minimize the possibility of tweeter failure. It monitors current going to the tweeter and will disconnect the tweeter from the signal when it senses overload. Once the volume has been reduced, the protection circuit will reset itself automatically.
Grilles: Two black metal mesh grilles and black ABS plastic grille frames are included with the speakers.
