JBL Stage 600C
2017 Mazda 6
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Makes my Mazda 6 2017 truly sing. Much much more impactful sound than stock speakers. Awesome value
Pros: High clarity sound In-line filter
"I'd rather not listen to anything at all." If you're having thoughts like these, it's a sure sign that your vehicle's factory speakers need replacing, and JBL's Stage Series is the affordable way to bring joy back to your listening experience. These Stage 600C component speakers sport a big 6-1/2" polypropylene woofer that gives your music the responsive, robust low-end punch you've been missing. The separate balanced dome tweeter delivers smooth, spacious highs, and brings your music back to life with startling detail. So, say goodbye to Edison-era sound, and enjoy what these JBL speakers have to offer.
These highly sensitive speakers make them a perfect combo with a factory radio, but if you really want to hear them perform, pair them with an aftermarket amp.
Installation Note: Tweeters are built into flush-mount housings. Surface mounting is not recommended.

Makes my Mazda 6 2017 truly sing. Much much more impactful sound than stock speakers. Awesome value
Pros: High clarity sound In-line filter
Sound great. Used them to replace the Alpine type-S components that I had installed in the front as one woofer was blown so I decided to go with somethign diff and replace the front set. Very balanced, plenty of volume. In my opinion better the the Alpines and slightly cheaper.
Pros: Sound great, easy isntall
The speakers sound great. They handle my alpine amp perfectly.
Pros: Easy to install. No hassle with the supplied mounting brackets.
Sound good. Easy install. Fit just right!
Wow!! That's all I can say. Great price, delivered on time, not to mention it went in so easy. Only had to look at instructions once. One thing I would recommend is updating the instructions, or having them come with a bracket. Luckily I was able to notice a notch was already in my bracket for the wires while the instructions said to file it down. Other than that the instructions were great. Could probably train a monkey to install these with the kit they provide. Put mine in a base model 2013 Lancer. Had to mount the tweeters to the door with some double sided tape, but a perfect fit. Will definitely be using Crutchfield in the future for ALL my car audio needs! I'm impressed!!
Pros: Easy to install with my provided, nice sound for the price.
Cons: None really. Exactly what I expected.
good product for the price
Loved it but was a hard fit in my car
Significant improvement over stock CR-Z Front Door speakers. Just need to finish mounting the Tweeters and AMP installation to complete the system.
Pros: Much Better Sound
Cons: None So Far
Great value for factory replacements!
I couldn't believe how helpfull and easy it was to install since I've never done it before and it sounds great!
If you're budget conscious, this is a great set. Got these on sale. Decent mids and tweeters aren't overpowering, like most cheap component sets at this price do. They balance really well. They sound good on deck power but much better with a small amp. 5 stars is based on overall value, yes you can spend more and get a much better set, but you'd be hard pressed to find another set for even double this price (or more) that sound as good.
Pros: Well balanced sound usually not found in less expensive component sets
can't wait to install them
They sound great for 6 inch door mounts. Don't expect the lowest of lows, but for my music, they we're perfect. Crutchfield told me that the tweeters wouldn't mount properly, but after cutting off the lip on them (purely cosmetic) they fit in the mounting holes on my door just fine.
Pros: Fit perfectly and the tweeters required very minimal modification to make fit.
Cons: Tweeter speaker cable should have had mounting tips on both ends. Not a big deal though.
shipped fast. Xmas prrsent
Great price for quality sound
2016 Tucson - HUGE improvement over stock speakers! Clean, clear and crisp range of sounds for all my CD's, (yep . . . old school). Didn't realize what I was missing until I installed these. I opted at the same time to buy the matching rear door JBL's and I am glad I did. My advice? Take your time and use marine heat shrink tubing to seal your soldering jobs or crimps.
Pros: Great improvement over stock (my friends are jealous). Pre-fabbed connectors and tweeter mounts would've been nice, but not enough of a hassle to consider it for the "cons" side.
Cons: Instructions for the adapters were wrong. I mounted the speakers to the outside of the adapters, then used factory screws and holes to mount them to the doors. Wasted a little time (and some swear words), but sorted it all out.
Great pricing for these speakers. I got them for Christmas and they sound amazing! The installation wasn't difficult at all!
Pros: My first time buying from Crutchfield and definitely not my last! Great pricing, great products and ample help from an online team to install my speakers.
Cons: None for now!
I just installed this speakers 3 days ago and they sound awesome. The minor setback was finding a way to secure the tweeters on the stock opening since no kit for their installation was provided. I had to carefully remove the old tweeters, and with the provided double sided tape i attached it to an edge on the opening and with the old original bracket sort of pressed it between the door panel and the bracket. Seemed to be secured. I forgot to take pictures.
Pros: Speakers easy to install
Cons: Tweeters came with no mounting bracket. I had to figured out my own way to secure them.
speakers sound great ,but they are not a exact fit.I had to force screws at a angle to fit pattern.The harness was great.
Pros: sounds good
Cons: not perfect fit !!
Works great sounds great and good fit, perfect for the price
Pros: Great sound for the price
No complaints, they price was great and the sound very good.
These speakers sound great! So far they sound great with the stock head unit but I can't wait to hook up my Kicker amp to them. My only gripe is the manual that it came with. It's way too vague and couple of important details were off.
Pros: Great value and sound.
Cons: Misleading and vague manual.
Came in on time they look great, easy setup. Will wait till i get them amped to see how they really shine.
Pros: Price point and small crossover
Cons: None yet
Easy to install woofer, tweeter requires adapter, sounds great.
Pros: Like as described
Cons: Only wire for the tweeters
Great sound. Easy installation.
Really happy with these speakers They sound great...
I was looking for an easy speaker upgrade after installing Dynamat in my doors. The JBL Stage 600C came with an inline crossover for the tweeters. This made for a simple and easy install. The mid-bass is amazing. Overall sound is AWESOME!!!
Pros: Easy install. Sound great.
Cons: Will sound much better with an amp.
Installed these in the front doors of a 97 Chevy C1500 pickup I'm fixing up, along with a new Kenwood headunit. Honestly I think that if the factory speakers were still fully functional, these would've been a complete waste of time and money. The mids and highs are marginally improved over stock, but the midbass is disappointing and almost comparable to the blown factory speakers. They are also extremely power hungry, the factory headunit absolutely struggled to power these at any volume, the new Kenwood headunit isn't much better at it either. Factory speakers are MUCH louder. The tweeter mounting hardware is also a joke and leaves you next to no options, you will have to glue them in place. In my case I was able to clip these into the factory locations and keep them in place with some butyl tape, but most other cars will probably require some fabrication to keep these in the stock locations.
Pros: Sound slightly better than blown 20-year-old speakers
Cons: Very inefficient, tweeter mounting is an absolute joke
Sound great for the price. Fit like a charm in my Silverado. Jvc receiver powers them okay. They do need an amp.
Pros: Cheap sound better than factory.
Cons: None really if you set your expectations for the price. If you try to compare these to expensive components then yeah, not as good. But at this price point they are great.
I absolutely love these admittedly power hungry speakers. but I do have a couple of gripes with them. Mainly that they needed an amp to be powered. Even my JVC KW-V320bt aftermarket head unit couldn't power them on its own to their full potential. The other gripe is that one of the tweeters came DOA. Luckily since I purchased these through Crutchfield, I received awesome customer service. I already installed all the speakers by the time I realized the tweeter wasn't making sound. So instead of having to take out all the speakers and pack them up to ship them to VA, Crutchfield was awesome and went ahead and shipped out another set so i can just exchange the bad tweeter and send it back without having to go without speakers in my car. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase.
Pros: Awesome sound woofers have a great range Outstanding customer service
Cons: one tweeter came dead Power hungry
Were not the easiest to install
Nice upgrade from factory, I hoped to fit these into where the factory 3.5" were but it looked a little too tricky to get out. either way install was easy and they work well.
I am giving this 4 stars because I think this set is an incredible value. I tried replacing the radio because the factory front left woofer went out (a common problem with these cars) and it was super annoying to have sound from only one front speaker. But it was actually the speaker itself, and due to the factory radio being HEAVILY EQ'd to mask the garbage factory tweeters, I was left with two shrill tweeters and one muddy woofer, hence buying this set. I have the woofer installed low in the factory door locations with the included adapter bracket and a Dynamat speaker kit around that. I had to significantly modify the tweeter to fit into the factory location on the A-pillar, so I'm not impressed with the tweeter fitment. I trimmed both the tweeter itself and the plastic on the back of the pillar, plus Crutchfield recommended using universal backstraps, which I find, cheap. BUT, the sound is great! The factory woofers are really muddy and after installing these I am really impressed with the level of detail I can hear! Note, because the tweeters are up high in the pillars, I wish it included a -3dB switch on the x-over, but instead I used my Pioneer radio's EQ to do the same thing. The bass is real! I was skeptical but they really do put out a lot of bass for the size. Guitars, both acoustic and electric sound AMAZING! Snare drums sound weird but I think that is because the crossover is HP only, however toms and bass drums sound fine. Overall pretty good sound for the $.
Pros: -Incredible value -No crossover to stash somewhere -Good sound for the money, especially with pop and rock tracks
Cons: -Tweeter fitment -Only get 6dB/octave high-pass crossover with no tweeter attenuation -Sound quality on par with entry-level component systems
The website verified these would fit my 2004 Toyota Prius with JBL speakers. They did NOT fit. Speaker mounting hole pattern diameter was about 1/4 inch too small requiring drilling of new holes. Plus the mounting on the door had 2 tabs molded in that matched with the OEM speakers, and had to file/grind those off for these to fit flush on the mounting bracket. The wiring clips that were included were not molded exactly right, they would fit the car's plug but wouldn't snap together tightly, necessitating securing them together with a zip tie. The tweeters included were no where near the right size and shape to fit into the factory speaker hole, so they could not be used at all. The new speakers do sound good, and that's why I didn't give them a 1 star rating.
Love JBL's! Sounds good but don't forget the speaker brackets for a 2003 blazer!
Speakers seem to be fine. Tweeters have to be highly modified to fit the Buick enclave. The speaker installation kits for the door are poorly designed. Did not install the tweeters.
Sound clean and clear
Super easy buy the speakers sound wonderful in my car. Not the top of the line product by any means but you do get good quality with the purchase. Great for first timers or anyone just wanting a little upgrade not anything that will boom your brain
Great speaker set at a great price! Upgraded factory 6 1/2" tweeter comb with this set. These sound amazing compared to the factory set. Smoother tweeter response and a front stage that is fully present, smooth and free from the harshness of factory. With ample amount of sound deadener - the mid bass response and bass transition to the 12" sub are fuller and smoother as well - whole frequency response flattened out. Tweeter had to be trimmed a little with razor cutter, gasket seal mounted on from face of tweeter and hot glue on the back made for a secure factory mounting in A pillar and door upgrade to larger 6 3/4" mid fit fine with supplied mounting bracket (thanks Crutchfield) - be careful with sound deadener around bracket for best fit and used wing tabs for additional screw hole on either side of bracket make for a tight fit. Even placed a call to tech support with help for the tweeter wires - brown is positive for my '12 Malibu LS - very helpfull. Overall completely satisfied with the whole experience.
Pros: Flatter frequency response across entire bandwidth - Direct factory replacement with very small modification.
Reasonably good low end response and the tweeter is clean and clear. Make no mistake, this is a minimal "component" system. It is superior to most factory systems and is superior to the Pioneer system in my RX350. These are not the equal to true component systems that have a real crossover. For the money I don't think you'll do much better. Recommended.
Pros: Nice high end, reasonably good low end response and good midrange.
Cons: Not as clear and detailed as a true component system or even a good quality coax speaker set.
Better than factory but not a huge improvement in the 2013 CRV, needed to massage the sheet metal opening in rear doors to get them to fit, not a big deal if you are so inclined. For the price they are fine.
Fits the factory hole perfectly with the supplied adapters. Sounds 100% better than the stock speakers.
Pros: Easy to install, sounds 100% better than stock speakers
works as advertised
Pros: easy install
As this is my first entry into car audio and Crutchfield i ultimately decided on these for my 2011 lancer mainly because on the outstanding reviews. Unfortunately for me i didn't have anywhere near the improvement reported by most. Some of my issues include, volume has decreased significantly. what used to be what i consider loud at 30 now takes the radio max 45. No wiring harnesses were provided even though the order shows them, images and mounting hardware in instructions were not accurate, and says nothing about correct polarity, also heavy modification was needed to mounting brackets that were labeled for an outlander not lancer. So all in all a pretty bad experience with Not only JBL but Crutchfield. If you do choose to go with these i hope your experience is better.
Cons: Minimal if any improvement over stockCrutchfield response on 5/22/2017 Rob, we're sorry you're disappointed with your speakers.

Good quality sound. Definitely got my money's worth.
I am no stranger to basic modifications, so I had no problems installing the woofers in the front doors of my Santa Fe Sport. The tweeters required a lot of modification and I basically removed the mounting cup, trimmed off the 1/4 inch lip, and used the two strips of mounting adhesive that came with the speakers (thank you, JBL) to make them fit my factory location. Crutchfield provided wire adaptors for the woofers, but I had to snip the tweeter wires and use quick splices to finish the install-good thing I had plenty on hand. Once the install was done, I immediately noticed the improvement over the stock speakers. The factory speakers were not loud enough and sounded tinny, these JBLs had a well-rounded sound when hooked to the factory radio but they simply sang to me once I put 50W RMS to them from my amp. If you are not shy about trimming things to get a good fit, you will be rewarded with great sound at a low price.
Pros: Sound great! Handle decent amounts of power. Included wire harnesses worked perfectly for the woofers.
Cons: Took average to above-average skills to install them cleanly in factory locations. Needed to splice tweeter wires, no harness included.
Installed these speakers in my 01 Blazer to replace the factory paper speakers. I'm used to having a sub and factory speakers. Boy was I surprised when I cranked these. Nice clear sound. Surprising bass, although still need a sub installed. Overall very satisfied.
installing on a 1998 Toyota 4Runner LTD. The instructions that came with the speakers contradict the website. These are FLUSH Mount tweeters. Not surface mount. If you wish to surface mount them you will need to glue, tape or blind screw them through the housing. I will add stars if justified after I finish mounting everything.
Pros: Decent Sound for the price.
Cons: instructions are wrong. When I called Tech Support, the technician had a hard time understanding we looking at different pages on the website. I think Crutchfield needs to make it very clear that these are hard to surface mount and are best used for flush mounting. Also train the the Tech Support Reps to start the cust from the very beginning and then walk the customer step by step to the correct info. If the rep had simply told me he was looking on the page for these speakers I would've goneCrutchfield response on 5/2/2017 After seeing George's review, Pat, one of our product researchers, pulled a set of these speakers from inventory to review our information. After discovering that these tweeters require the mounting cup to be broken to surface-mount them, Pat suggested that these tweeters only be flush-mounted when they're installed. Lex, one of our copywriters, updated our online presentation.
I bought these to replace the front door factory component speakers in my 2014 Toyota Corolla. The woofer installation was strait forward, just insure you mount the adapter bracket first then the speaker. For the tweeter to mount in the factory location you will have to cut the factory tweeter grills off about 1/8-1/4" and clean up the hole. This allows the tweeter to be inserted from the front of the bracket. I secured them from the back with silicone adhesive/sealant as there is no other way to secure it that I found. Surprisingly it looked good after everything was put back together. The sound was a definant improvement compared to the factory speakers using the factory head unit with no amp. For the price I would definitely use these JBL speakers again. I just wish JBL made the tweeter housing a little smaller with several mounting options.
Pros: Great sound and simplified wiring due to no crossover
Cons: Limited tweeter mounting options
These speakers are a big improvement in clarity in comparison to the stock speakers in the truck. Now I think I have to buy a amplifier and put a subwoofer in as their low and response is not that great
I installed these in the front seat locations in my aging 2006 Scion tC. At first I wasn't sure if they would be much of an upgrade over the stock Pioneer speakers, since the stock speakers seemed to be pretty decent as well. Like the 600C, the tC's stock front speakers also have a polypropylene woofer (unlike the rear seat speakers, which are paper). However, after using them for the past month, they seem every bit as good as the stock speakers, as well as having a bit more kick in the bass response. Definitely a good low-cost upgrade for older cars with old speakers.
Sound quality poor, tweeters won't fit in place of factory tweeters, disappointed with JBL even with low quality products. Factory speakers sound much better.
Cons: Tweeters doesn't fit, poor sound qualityCrutchfield response on 4/19/2017 Willie, we're sorry you're disappointed with your speakers.

I really had trouble getting the speakers in the rear doors of my 2005 toyota sequoia. But I got them in and now they are fantastic! I just love the bass.
Pros: I had trouble getting them in but Love the bass.
Cons: I had trouble getting them in
Great set of speakers for the price. The woofers offer full sound, mind you I'm still using the factory head unit. Even still, the quality and depth of the sound has improved by 65%. The tweeters will offer the high end that you are looking for plus you can add a small amp if you want even more quality. The only problem I ran into was the mounting screw were way to long, they cold have been shortened as much as 1/2" maybe even 3/4". The adapters that came with my order for the Civic were perfect but the screws would push them away from the door, so I used a hacksaw to cut the end of the screws off... could have been avoided with a shorter screw. I could have completed each install in about 20min but because of extra steps it ended up taking about 45 mins each. Also if your using 6 3/4" speakers and your install comes with the same adapters mine did, you will want to install the adapter FIRST, then install the speaker... if you install the speaker first you will not be able to get to the top mounting screw for the adapter plate. All in all I'm well pleased though. I bought the same set for front and rear deck so I installed the tweeters in the rear deck also to give passengers in the back the same sound quality. You won't be dissapointed with this purchase!
Pros: Full depth of sound, quality highs. Mostly easy install. Came with mounting adapters and harnesses.
Cons: Screws need to be shorter. Would greatly decrease install time.
Great sound for the budget minded enthusiast. For the price they cannot be touched. This component set does not fit (you get what you pay for) They sound like they should cost three times the price
Pros: Great sound as an entry level component set.
Cons: No dedicated crossover just an inline bass blocker
overall you get a decent set of speakers, better than OEM. good value. tweeters are somewhat cheep looking. the metal locking ring is too loose and does nothing to attach the tweeter to the panel. had to use hot glue gun. ended up with less bass than the OEM. guess I need an amp now.
Pros: sound better than the OEM especially with the added tweeters
Cons: tweeters look cheep and install hardware ring was useless
Awesome package, comes with adapters for stock connecting and mounting brackets. Sounds great for 2013 Chevy Silverado crew cab front door and pillar.
Pros: Stock replacement is easy! Great support
Cons: Have to cut stock location for tweeters to fit right
Amazing sound, I've never bought JBL speakers before but I'm sold on them now for sure I just replace all my speakers in my car from factory speakers and what a huge difference it makes. Has clear sound, for the price it's such a great deal.
Pros: Price, clear sound, super easy to install, huge upgrade from factory speakers
I bought these for my 2014 Focus ST1. What a huge improvement. Crystal clear sound. The stock stereo system is complete garbage. I couldn't be happier with the sound and quality.
Pros: Price, easy to install, sound, fit and finish.
I'd rate the sound reproduction of the speakers good. It doesn't seem to have as much bass as the factory speakers. As far as fitment information for my 2002 Sienna with JBL factory speaker in the front door location I'd give Crutchfield a fail. These JBL Stage 600C are shown to require minor modification. This minor mod is to remove two plastic tabs on the factory mount. Easy to accomplish with a Dremel tool with a cutoff tool. According to the directions you should then be able to use the factory screws to mount the new speakers in the factory holes. There is no way this is possible since the diameter of the new JBL's is at least 1/4" smaller than the factory speakers. It was not possible to get more than one of the factory holes to line up. I had the drill new holes through the plastic factory mount and steel portion of the door then use different screws to mount the new speakers. Not a deal breaker, but with the door already apart I didn't have much choice. I didn't find it difficult, but if you expect this to be plug and play for a 2002 Sienna w/JBL in the front door you will be disappointed.
Pros: Good sounding speakers.
Cons: Less bass than factory speakers. Fitment information incorrect.
I got these as a replacement for my 2017 ford fusion factory front speakers. At lower volumes they are not much better then the factory speakers. At higher volume they are a bit cleaner sounding. The tweeters are surface mount only, so to make them fit inside my door panel i had to trim the plastic ring off them. Overall since they were on sale for less the $50 im very pleased. Not sure how i would feel at full price.
Pros: On sale for less then $50
Cons: Tweeter is only surface mount. Takes serious modification for any other mounting
Great upgrade for my Miata's old Bose speakers. I'd replaced the head unit, and the speakers were next on my list. These sound much clearer, with good highs and decent bass. Installation was pretty simple. I glued the tweeters to the bracket for the old ones, and the woofers bolted right to a set of speaker adapters I found online. Thanks as well to my adviser Sam, who steered me towards these.
Pros: Inexpensive, good sound
Cons: None so far
Definite upgrade compared to the factory speakers, but not as good as I hoped. I'm going to replace the factory head unit now and hopefully it will sound much better.
You cannot beat the price for these speakers. These fit perfectly in my Scion xB 2005. The stock speakers finally gave out and after replacing it with these I realized what I was missing, now I'm wondering about my back speakers!
Awesome Easy install Love you guys
Awesome speakers! Give an amazing amount of clarity and tightness. Beats the hell out of my chevy's stock crap. Great value too.
Pros: Super good sound Inexpensive
Cons: Lacking bass (of course) Required hot glue to install tweeters
great product & great sound easy install
These are good speakers for upgrading factory speakers. I think I'll still need a new deck eventually
Bass is less muddy but there's also less of it. Some of the bass performance maybe due to metra bracket that does not fit as well as OEM speaker. Playing speaker test file I hear (of course such test is subjective) bass at around 45Hz (40Hz previously) and up to 13khz (10.5kHz with OEM). I also don't hear nulls that I did with OEM system. While playing some songs I long for more base while playing others I feel highs are too harsh. Note that on Forester 2014+ you do not have to remove side door panel as per instructions. I just removed three screws, popped bottom and side rivets and was able to pry panel away from the speaker enough to use a ratchet wrench (with phillips bit). Metra bracket goes on with two tabs with round holes on top. Rivets that stay in the door can be removed with scissors or long nose pliers if you don't have the special tool. If I was going to do it again I would have probably went step up to JBL GX600C which supposed to have better tweeters, sensitivity and butyl surround.
Pros: easy to install with provided bracket and harness good price
Cons: not much of an upgrade
Great bang for the buck, not competition quality, but much better sound and range than the stock speakers.
Pros: Good range Crisp sound Quality built
Cons: If you're looking for competition quality then you will need to find a higher priced pair, hard to beat the sound in this price range.
At first I was concerned about the lack of 12db external crossover. They only have a 6Db high pass crossover in-line with the tweeter. This does make installation easier, no box / crossover to mount. For the price, a good deal. Not the best I have ever add, but I am on a budget now... Running off of a after market head unit at 10 - 15 watts they did OK. But add an amplifier, at 60 Watts and WOW these things do sing well. Was lacking a little bass, make sure the main drivers are sealed in the door well. Cover the gaps near the speaker, and mid-bass response was good. To mount the tweeters, a 1.75" hole, may need a little filing done to fit perfect. On my 1997 Suburban the tweeter slid into the factory tweeter locations, with a little hot glue to hold them. Would have rated higher, is wasn't for power handling.
Pros: Great for your first component set or for a budget build.
Cons: Do not think they would handle a lot of power.
I love the clear sound and the many installation holes are sure helpful!
They sound great. A lot better than those 9 year old stock tacoma speakers that were still in the vehicle when I bough them. The magnets were about the size of a silver dollar on the stock speakers ??
Pros: Cheap and made of good materials
Cons: None so far.
The holes for mounting did not match up with the factory holes on my 2005 landcruiser front door panels. Sounds good. Tweeters will not fit into the upper door mount factory tweeter location. As advertised.
I installed these in a 1979 ford f150 and they sound great. I will be adding an amp soon.
Pros: Great product
I bought these to replace the aging stock components in my Toyota Tacoma. The reviews looked good so I figured I couldn't go wrong for the money. These are a big improvement over the stock component set with more mid range and much improved highs. Very crisp and clear. I would highly recommend these if improvement over your stock sound is your goal.
Pros: Great sound for the money
Good clean sound with crisp highs. Very good value.
Pros: price,quality and sound.
Cons: nothing really,maybe handle a little more power.
Good sound reproduction
I installed these in the front doors of my 2014 Ford Focus hatchback - combined with a Clarion XC1410 amp, they are a -very- noticeable upgrade over stock! The only issues with fitment were with the Metra 82-5605 speaker adapter brackets - they will fit, but you will need to cut out the plastic tabs inside the "ring" with a dremel or something.
Pros: Great sound!
Great products very responsibly priced, I received my order next day as advertised, customer service was very helpful and patient and respectful.
Pros: Products and prices are awesome.
The fit was excellent and the sound was amazing, I already had a 10 in sub in the car and once I amped these babies i had to turn the gains down cause thew were stronger then my sub! Im highly impressed! Best spec speaker for the price.
Pros: Features and sounds
Cons: Didn't expect it to over power my sub but its cool
Great sounding for the price. And the fit was perfect in the front doors of my 2000 Tahoe.
These speakers are great. I wish I had them in my truck as I installed them in my daughters truck. The treble sounds crisp and like that I could locate them closer to the ceiling making it sound like the music is coming from everywhere in the cab.
Pros: Great sound.
Cons: Cant think of any. They have been installed for about 1 month.
Good replacement of stock speakers on my car.
Pros: sounds great
Cons: lacking bass but what can you expect from a 6.5 speaker
I needed component speakers for an 2009 Civic LX. I originally purchased a set of coaxial Infinity speakers and returned them because my car didn't have tweeters and the sound stage was not good. I was able to mount these in the factory tweeter location with a little modification. The sound stage is so much better due to the tweeters being on the dash. The crossover for the tweeters are in line so it's nice not having to worry about where to mount the crossovers. Probably doesn't work as great as a an external crossover, but works for me. For the price it cannot be beat. Thank you Crutchfield for such a great return policy.
Pros: Sound for the price. Crossover for tweeters in line. Great sound stage.
Cons: Product appears a little lower quality than other more expensive models. Bass is a little lacking on the lower end, but if you have a subwoofer, mid bass is good.
Decent sound. Glad they were on sale.
Excellent product for the money! Installed them as a replacement for my wife's blown factory speakers and sound quality was great. Crutchfield service was also top notch with the free included install parts (speaker wires and door adapters) and free shipping installation was a breeze.
Pros: Price, quality, decent sound
Cons: None, great price for a component set!
They sound great! I think they pair nicely with the Pioneer AVIC-5200NEX upgrade to my 07 Sienna.
Pros: Easy install
These speakers work and sound great. They were very easy to install with the harness, brackets and detailed instructions that crutchfield included with the order.
Good sound. Great price. Easy installation!
Awesome speakers for the price. Give them a week to break in and they really come to life. Crutchfield instructions and adaptors make the job easy
Pros: Price, sound
Used to replace door speakers in 1995 GMC truck. Paired with Pioneer head unit. The tweeters required very little work to fit in the factory spot - that was really nice. The woofers really need to have the space behind them controlled - too much air and they quickly bottom out. Once that was handled, they sound decent - an improvement over 20+ year old paper cone speakers, but nothing that makes you go 'wow!'.
Pros: Good fit Good price
Had to improvise location of tweeter and Metra cable only hooked to 6 1/2 speaker. Wanted to buy dash speakers but your site and advisor said you do not have speakers for that location. Bought a pair off the shelf at Best Buy. Would rather have bought them from you. Radio sounds great now, listening to all my cds over again to pick up missing tones.
Pros: 6 1/2 speaker fit with very little trouble. Arrived in a timely manner.
Cons: Did not offer dashboard speakers.
Speakers sound great, better than factory!
installed fairly easy. Sound system is back to normal.
Good for the price
Cons: Bass mid range
These speakers added a new dimension to music in my jeep, Super cross over, bass and excellent clarity. You cannot go wrong with them. Super priced, there is no way you cannot be pleased, Buy it if it fits your vehicle you will love it.
Pros: Best sounds for the price
Great sound, crisp high notes and great low end.
I put these in my 2016 Forester premium as the stock speakers were pretty weak. I was short on time and had Best Buy install for me with all the parts and so far so good! These are a great moderate upgrade when you aren't planning to change your head unit or install an amplifier.
Pros: - affordable - good wattage for stock head units - includes all parts for installation.
Cons: - Not quite as much bass as I was hoping for
These speakers sound great for the price. Having a component speaker really adds to the quality of the music!
Pros: Price, sound quality
Cons: none so far
One of the tweeters had a crackle right out of the box, as soon as I hooked it up. Everything else is fine
Cons:Crutchfield response on 12/6/2016 Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to this customer to issue an apology and help him further. We'll either help him get the tweeter working the way it should, or help him return these speakers for an exchange or refund.
Clear, crisp sound with just enough bass to seamlessly blend into a top notch musical traveling experience. In other words....."They Kick Butt!!" You can't beat the price folks!
Pros: Quality, Price, Sound & Ease of installation.
i love the sound quality of these speakers.
Pros: great sound and perfect fit
good sound for a medium grade system. adapter plate did not quite fit right but it did work.
Sounds better than what came with the car.
Great clear sound. Bought in order to replace blown BOSE speakers. The sound is crisp and clear. Gives me the highs and lows without distortion. Did a lot of research on speakers and these JBL speakers were the best for the price. So far it can handle the power of my factory sound system and is definitely an upgrade over the BOSE speakers that the car originally came with.
JBL what can I say more, any thing is better then stock, the sound was good but u get what you pay for.
Great buy! At first the speakers seemed like they were average quality and I accepted it, sadly, because of how low cost the speakers are. However, you really have to let the speakers break in because after a couple of days these speakers sounded amazing. I could really hear the highs and feel the thumping lows.

Tweeter Mounting: The tweeters are packaged in flush mount housings. The housings can also be pried apart using a small flat blade screwdriver (not included), then surface mounted. When surface mounted, the flush mount flange remains around the perimeter of the housing, leading me to recommend flush mounting the tweeters.
|Flush Mount||Surface Mount|
Crossovers: The 6 dB/octave high pass crossovers are in-line with the included tweeter wire.

Great value for great speakers [ Roy Feb 15, 2017 ]
Gotta be an upgrade to my broken stock speakers. Being able to raise sound with component tweeters means less volume to hear the music well. At under $50, if I don't like them, I won't feel so bad replacing them later. [ Joshua Feb 10, 2017 ]

Looking for well-reviewed component speakers under $100 [ Alex Oct 17, 2016 ]
I love JBL!! For that price i would be crazy not to take advantage!! [ Angel Oct 17, 2016 ]
I notice that the upscale toyota trucks all used JBL components so I replaced my stock speakers (they were horrible) and now I can't get my son out of my truck! Great sounding speakers and I love the fact that the crossovers were built into the rear of the woofers, meaning I have one less connection to make. [ Michael Oct 12, 2016 ]
My Toyota Avalon has JBL system. I thought the Camry could use the upgrade too! [ Michael Sep 30, 2016 ]
Wanted to match factory speaker placement and so these component speakers over 2 or 3 ways were chosen. Very affordable. [ J Sep 15, 2016 ]
They were the cheapest component speakers [ Josh Sep 10, 2016 ]
Great speakers, great price! I have a buddy that bought these not too long ago and they are amazing! He hooked them up to his factory stereo and then decided to get a new head unit and what a huge difference! Unbelievable sound all the way around! [ Shawn Aug 29, 2016 ]
it has dome tweeter [ Hoang Aug 25, 2016 ]
I got these on sale, specs looked good on paper, wasn't looking for anything over the top just enough to sound better than my factory. Waiting for delivery to do and in depth review. [ Amrik Jul 24, 2016 ]
I'm not sure. I never got around to installing the tweeters in my Malibu. Too many modifications, I was worried I'd break something. [ Jeff Feb 25, 2018 ]
I would recommend a Dremel tool. It will be tedious but clean. [ Kennith Wade Feb 25, 2018 ]
Since you ask this question, i assume your radio has separate outputs for speakers and twitters. If your car have separate circuits for speakers and tweeters you should set HPF on and make sure to use the right connections. If it doesn't have separate wiring for speakers and tweeters, i don't think you should put HPF on. [ DAN Feb 24, 2018 ]
These speakers include a passive crossover. You can leave off any filtering and adjust tone with bass and treble controls, if needed. [ Dave Feb 23, 2018 ]
The gauge of wire you need is determined by the amount of amperage your amplifier requires to operate core. Crutchfield supplies a chart and instructions on how to calculate that figure on their website. [ Peter j. Feb 05, 2018 ]
Yes, I used 8g too because it cans hold high current and heat. [ Sidney Feb 05, 2018 ]
Upon further review of your amp it is 500 rms at 2 ohms and 300 at 4 8 gauge would be ok but pushing it only recommend if on a tight budget but even if you don't need the 0 gauge now you never know if you'll want to upgrade later if so all you d have to do is switch out your amp or sub and not have to re wire everything [ Josh Feb 05, 2018 ]
8 gauge for 1500 rms is really not ok I highly recommend 0 gauge all the way but 4 gauge will do it but 8 will get hot and melt possibly your amp connections and don't forget about the big 3 which is bigger gauge alternator wires this will help with head lights dimming if ever an issue youtube is your friend [ Josh Feb 05, 2018 ]
This package includes two woofers and two separate tweeters for a total of four speakers. [ Peter j. Jan 01, 2018 ]
It's a pair. [ Amrik Dec 30, 2017 ]
It comes as a pair with a pair of the tweeters as well [ Benjamin Dec 30, 2017 ]
It's a pair. It comes with two speakers and two tweeters. [ Sidney Dec 30, 2017 ]
These speakers use an inline capacitor style crossover rather than a printed circuit board type. I am running a Kenwood 50w rms x 4 amp with the high pass set at 60hz and have yet to experience any distortion. [ Peter j. Sep 27, 2017 ]
I didn't use it on these speakers but you can use your old ones. It won't hurts. [ Sidney Sep 21, 2017 ]
I believe the tweeters had a x-over built in... the bigger speakers are full range I'm pretty sure [ Jay Sep 20, 2017 ]
The only way these speakers will make unwanted noise is to connect them to a garbage source. I am running them off of a kenwood 50 watt rms/ channel amp at 80hz high pass crossover and at full power there is no clipping or other distortion whatsoever. In fact, the louder the volume, the better they sound. [ Peter j. Apr 24, 2017 ]
No [ Sidney Apr 18, 2017 ]

There is a capacitor inline with the tweeter which provides the high pass crossover point for the tweeters [ Peter j. Sep 27, 2017 ]
I am not sure about the crossovers. I replaced the speakers which came from the factory on a 2008 Scion xB. I did not replace the factory tweeters as they were working fine. It would have taken some wire splices for the tweeters as they were NOT plug and play like the main speakers were. [ Clayvis Oct 19, 2016 ]
Yes, mine did. I had a few capacitors from other installs that I tried. 14uf seemed to sound the best. [ Michael Oct 19, 2016 ]
I don't know you might have to look online for the tech specs. [ Michael Oct 18, 2016 ]
