Our take on the JBL Club 5000C

It's simple. Your factory speakers are getting you down. JBL's Club Series speakers are the clear solution. JBL equipped these Club 5000C 5-1/4" component speakers with UV-resistant polypropylene woofers for stellar performance even under the stickiest (or chilliest) environmental conditions — after all, your car door isn't the most forgiving place to reside.

The well-rounded component system

It's simple. Your factory speakers are getting you down. JBL's Club Series speakers are the clear solution. JBL equipped these Club 5000C 5-1/4" component speakers with UV-resistant polypropylene woofers for stellar performance even under the stickiest (or chilliest) environmental conditions — after all, your car door isn't the most forgiving place to reside.

Strong performance

The speaker's patented Plus One™ woofer structure extends the surface area of the cone to give you a better midbass experience than other speakers this size. The separate 3/4" edge-driven PEI tweeter expands the high-frequency range, so you'll hear musical details that you never heard from your old speakers.

A match for any system

The Club 5000C's low-impedance design safely draws more power from your car stereo to give your music extra punch, but you'll get even better results feeding them power from an outboard amp.

Woofer grilles are not included; the factory grilles should be suitable for most applications.

Not too sure how i feel about these just yet. The bass is a little rough but it may just be that they need more power? Im running stock head unit currently and no amp to the speakers.

Pros: Super crisp sound

Cons: Bass

Bought these to listen to podcasts in my work truck so that I can hear voices better vs stock speakers. I don`t like em at all, the tweeters sound too high pitched. I have to dumb them down via EQ significantly. Every word with an S in it hurts my ears.

There is no comparison to the pioneer speakers originally installed in my vehicle. The speakers with tweeters are a lot crisper and clear compared to the old ones.

05 double cab tundra w/ factory jbl. I'm running these from a Pioneer dvd head unit with the factory amp bypassed. The sound quality is much better than factory. I think I could have fit the 6.5's in there but the bass output from these is plenty and the highs are superior over stock.

I installed these in my 2007 Xterra dash and front door. The sound difference to the stock speaker is incredible. The tweeters are crisp, however, I also installed a new head unit from Crutchfield (Kenwood Excelon DPX792BH) that includes hundreds of sound adjustments. The woofers work perfectly, overall, I really enjoy listening to all types of music through these speakers,

Pros: Great Sound!

Cons: Component rewiring took some extra time, but well worth it.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Perfect replacement for 20 YO. HK paper subwoofers. A little Dremel Persuasion was needed to mouth these speakers in the Bmw plastic woofer box, now...super bass! I haven't yet installed the cross overs and tweeters, as I recall didn't need them for this application.

Pros: Great sound restored. Component system, not coaxial.

Cons: None

Product Research


Plus One+ Woofer Cones: Each speaker uses a larger cone than other speakers of the same size. This is accomplished by using a unique basket design and hi-roll surround. The Plus One+ design offers greater bass output and an increase in efficiency.

High-Output Design: The 3Ω voice coil design compensates for the high in-line resistance of small gauge factory wiring, extracting more power from factory (or aftermarket) receivers. This results in clearer, richer sound for the listener.

Tweeter Mounting: The I-Mount tweeter mounting system and Starfish mounting brackets give you several different ways to mount the tweeters:

  • I-Mount: The tweeters can be surface-mounted or flush-mounted with JBL's innovative I-Mount system:
    • Surface Mount: Surface mounting the tweeters involves screwing the surface-mount cup to the mounting location, then inserting and locking the tweeter into the cup.
    • Flush Mount: Flush mounting uses the threaded flush-mount housing and plastic locking nut. Once a cutout is made, the tweeter is installed in the flush-mount adapter, then into the flush mount housing and inserted into the hole. The large plastic locking nut is threaded onto the adapter (from behind the mounting surface) to hold the complete assembly securely in place. When flush mounted, the tweeters may be angled for optimum response and imaging.
  • Starfish Mounting Brackets: The Starfish mounting brackets allow the tweeters to be installed in factory locations behind the existing grilles:
    • Bottom Mount: Once the Starfish bracket is trimmed, it is secured to the underside of the grille panel. The tweeter must be inserted into the bracket and locked into place before the bracket is mounted.
    • Surface Mount: Once the Starfish bracket is trimmed, it is screwed to the top of the mounting surface behind the grille panel. Then, the tweeter is inserted into the bracket and locked into place.
    • Flush Mount: There are two sets of tabs to flush mount the tweeter in the Starfish bracket, yielding different mounting dimensions. The upper tabs mount the tweeter completely below the opening and are glued in place. The lower mounting tabs are screwed in place and result in a mounting height just under 3/8". Once the bracket is mounted, the tweeter is inserted into the bracket and locked into place.
