JL Audio's Evolution C2 Series speakers bring precision sound to your vehicle. They'll reproduce subtle elements of your music like delicate woodwinds or soprano vocals, then turn on a dime to deliver the deep thrum of the bass or thunder of the drums.
The C2-350X 3-1/2" speakers feature rugged polypropylene cones that can handle plenty of power without distortion, so you get full-bodied tones. The 3/4" silk dome tweeters serve up smooth-sounding high frequencies that won't tax your ears, adding a satisfying dose of realism to your soundstage. Built-in crossovers ensure that the tweeters and woofers reproduce only the frequencies that they were designed to handle, so your tunes play smoothly across the whole musical spectrum. Grilles are not included — factory grilles are appropriate for most installations.

Phenomenal ultra clear highs.

Phenomenal ultra clear highs.
Excellent sound! Make sure to use a set of bass blockers though as these popped and cracked until I put some in line. Used 600hz blockers and now everything is great.
Very happy with these in the dash. Worked very well with a 14 w aftermarket HU. A little on the bright side but not fatiguing. If you are using Bass blockers I think you are better off with 300Hz rather than the recommended 600 Hz. Did not try them without Bass blockers (the built in are 120 Hz I believe). I paired them with the JL 690tx in the doors (those needed an amp/powerpack) and a pioneer 380 BHS and the sound is great
Pros: Great sound, beautiful clean detailed sound reproduction even with 14 w RMS
Cons: Not a con but figure out what Bass blockers work best, for me 300 Hz worked great, not sure I would go lower, definitely not higher. Depending on your setup you may not need Bass blockers
Great sound for such small speakers. Very happy
Pros: Clear rich sound Good punch
These speakers are awesome. Researched speakers for a while to replace the crap ones in my truck (14 ram) These speakers are so much more clear and louder than the stock ones it's not funny. To give you an idea of how much better they are. I work evenings and when I get off late at night I like to drive home with the windows down. Well for me to be able to hear the music while driving 70, I have to turn the volume to max which is 38. After replacing my 2 dash speakers with these. I only have to turn the volume to 24. This how much louder and clear they are. I wish I had not waited so long to upgrade these speakers. Now the door speakers are next.
Pros: Amazing sound. Easy install
Great customer service nice price speaker sound great thanks!!!!
Amazing sound! A great improvement over the stock dash speakers. I recommend these to everyone I see.
I ordered these speakers to replace the factory Alpine speakers in the front corners. They cleaned up the sound considerably exposing many more high notes. I can only imagine how good they would sound with some additional power.
I am in love with these speakers. They are a huge improvement over the factory dash speakers I had and these have really helped music come to life in my car. I hear a lot of extra details in songs that I didn't know where there. Vocal harmonies, guitars, cymbals and other cool effects really showcase now.
Pros: Sound Quality, Letting me hear the finer details.
This was a "modifies fit" but it bolted right in with no clearance issues. The sound is crisp and clear, and has fantastic output for such a tiny speaker, It could easily be powered by an amp to give it more punch
Pros: Big Sound, tiny speaker, awesome clarity, big bang for the buck
I ordered the JL C2-350x to replace the factory dash speakers in my 2013 FJ cruiser based on the fact that there were two other reviews by FJ owners. Crutchfield said that the speakers would not fit my vehicle and they were partially correct. I had to take out the factory speaker and mounting bracket but was able to just attach the new speakers from there. These speakers are great for how little they are and overall are pretty cost effective. I would highly recommend them to someone interested in buying a smaller speaker.
Pros: Great sound / decent price
Cons: Not a perfect fit (I was warned by Crutchfield)
I installed these in the dash on my 2016 2500 bighorn. They really cleared up the mids and highs. These along with a 8" JL sub made the sound better then my 15 with the alpine premium sound. Installation. Was a breeze with crutch fields included adapters.
Pros: Clear sound, easy installation, direct fit.
quality speaker, exact fit for my vehicle
Pros: clear crisp sound
Awesome speakers! Installed it in my 14 FJ Cruiser and replaced the cheap factory dash speakers. What a big difference in sound and fitment was almost perfect.
Sound good in my ram 1500.
Jl audio c2 350z I put these in my 2014 toyota camry se. As dash speakers. The stock ones are garage!
Pros: Good speakers , Way better
Cons: No cons.
I chose JL audio because I Thought they were made in Florida. Wrong! As soon as I opened the box, there it was. The sticker that says made in China. I was pretty ticked actually. Anyway, they sound ok I guess. And I had to notch the left side of my dash (83 C-10) for them to fit.
Pros: Sound ok
Cons: Made in China still has to modify my dash for them to fit.
These little JL Audio 3 1/2 inch dash corner speakers make a big difference in the sound quality over stock in my 2013 Dodge Ram
Pros: Improved sound performance, very easy installation
Good quality sound for a small speaker. Handles high frequencies well. Fits Toyota FJ's dash & C-pillar factory mount locations.
Pros: Solid Construction & good sound.
I installed these in the dash of my 12 ram 1500. Thanks to Crutchfield's free install goodies it a was simple install. The speaker are a huge upgrading the factory stuff. The are really clear and clean. Not bright, just clean. I used a 600hz filter to limit the bass which I highly recommend. I gave these four stars for that reason. JL should have used a higher filter from the start.
Pros: Perfect fit Clear sound Decent price
Cons: Factory bass limit too low needs a higher filter
Replaced the dash speakers in my 2014 Ram 2500 with these. Massive improvement in sound, very clear highs! I added bass blockers to keep the real low bass from distorting the sound in these.
Installed in a 2013 Ram 2500, they fit and sound great.
Bought a pair of these dash speakers for my 2014 Ram truck. These speakers sound way too superb for my other 4-door (Kenwood)speakers. Installations was 20 mins for me.
The speakers sound amazing for the size.
Pros: The were a direct fit withering adapters.
I had installed a W7 and loved it. I had my big bass... but factory speakers. I gave these a shot, unamplified. These little things are fantastic. Gave me the high end I needed without needing an amplifier. Very happy I pulled the trigger on these. They fit perfectly in the Dodge Challenger 3.5" dash speakers, took about 10 minutes to install.
Pros: Gives a strong, clear high end
Sound quality is outstanding. Highs are clear and mids sound great as well.
Pros: Speakers overpower wind noise, which is loud in my truck.
I installed these jl speakers after having installed the Kicker 40CS354 in my 2012 Ram 1500. The JL speakers seem to be in balance with the rest of the stock speaker system. Comparing them with the Kicker speakers I would say the Kicker speaker was a little to bright, and a little dominate to the rest of the system. Both speakers were used with the Pioneer 4000-NEX. WIth the kicker I was constantly chasing sound settings with the eq, but not with the JL. I would recommend spending the extra money and getting the JL.
Pros: Sounds Great, In balance with the rest of the system, & not having to constantly chase sound settings.
Gotta say - I was shocked at the weight when I unboxed them (shocked in a good way). These tiny speakers live up to their brand in sound production. I'm very happy I put these in place in my '12 Ram 4-door.
I Drive a 84 ford Thunderbird turbo coupe. I run an 2013 alpine head-unit , polk mm series 5x7 in the rear deck, alpine 500 watt mono amp for my JL audio sealed W3 in the trunk. I needed to purchase a set of speakers for the front dash of my car, my car is old so the dash is flat and the speakers are set into the dash and close to the windshield do i needed speakers that would be able to play loud enough to bounce off the glass and still be able to blend with the rest of the system.These speakers definitely do that they can play loud with nothing but the head-units power and the highs are not to bright and overall the sound is great. good bass response for size, and i trust the JL build quality. speaker looks nice and i love the rubber cover on the magnets. old car so install was kind of tricky but would have been so with any speaker.
Pros: great sound, not bright at high volume, handle volume with head-unit power. good looking speaker.
Cons: that these speakers don't bump as hard as my JL Sub :P
I put these in the dash of my 89 W150 and they are much louder than I expected. My A/C is 2-55s (that's 2 windows down at 55 MPH if you never heard it) and my truck is not quiet, until I can get an amp for the door and behind the seat speakers, these are the speakers I hear the most for vocals and highs. When my A/C is cranking I hear them good enough and after a month or so they still sound fine. If I were the late Mr. Ebert and the speakers were a movie they would get two thumbs up!
Pros: Fit my truck even though website said would not fit, louder and clearer than expected
Cons: none, unless you want them to sound like 61/2"s
With proper crossover points and being smart enough to know this wont play low you will be impressed... I have the mid crossed at 215 with a 12db slope in the pillars- I cut the cap on the tweeter and am running them active on axis... A bump on everything 8k and up was needed for sparkle or shimmer. Bottom line with a real Midbass for the price it's a win.
Pros: Clean uncolored tonally
Cons: Even with a high crossover point they don't get all that loud- loud enough for most but I'm a fan of 120+db sprints. Going to try to bump the the crossover for daily use.
I give it 3 stars because it is loud but not crisp and clean like every other review, which is a big reason i went with these the right blew after 3 days...i just got the infinity 3002 hope they are better
Pros: Jl audio
Cons: Not high grade jl audio equipment
Replaced the stock 3.5" in my 2012 Tundra. The SQ is amazing compared to stock and will compliment any system. Well worth the $$.
Pros: Crisp highs and extre,ely clear output.
Just installed these in my 2010 Mazda CX-9 GT. They installed in about 30 minutes, and the quality is much better compared to the stock six speaker stereo dash speakers with much more refined and detailed highs. I noticed after extended listening less fatigue compared to the stock set. I Highly recommend these as a quick, easy, quality, set of replacement dash speakers.
I put these in the dash on my 1st gen Scion XB. What a difference. Completely transformed the sound in my car. Brighter, richer, fuller sound.
These are great sounding for 3 1/2" speakers. The magnet is huge compared to the stock 3 1/2"s in my 2007 Grand Cherokee. It says they don't fit in my car but I installed them anyway and the only thing is they push a little on the grill but other than that they fit fine. Overall great speakers if you are looking to replace factory ones.

Woofers: The JL Audio Evolution C2-350x coaxial speakers feature a 3-1/2 injection-molded, mica-filled polypropylene cone woofer with a polyether foam surround. The woofer features a 0.75" voice coil on a Kapton Former, a symmetrical roll spider and a Ferrite magnet. These carefully engineered cones deliver the right combination of stiffness, damping, and off-axis response. The speaker also provides good mid-bass (by 3-1/2 standards), thanks to its mechanical clearance, optimized suspension and balanced motor design.
Tweeters: Each C2-350x features a 0.75" silk dome, ferrofluid-cooled tweeter with a damping neodymium magnet. The edge-driven silk dome tweeter is smooth, detailed (on or off axis), and provides great overall performance. Silk is lightweight and great for high frequency extension and efficiency. It is also designed for durability in the extreme automotive environment.
Power Handling: JL Audio lists two power figures in the manual; 25 watts continuous power handling and recommended amp power 10-40 watts RMS. We've listed the RMS power recommendation in the specs table.

Mine fit in the factory screw holes but I ended up using the mounting brackets provided for a more snug fit. This is for he front dash of a 1984 turbocoupe [ Alessandro May 24, 2015 ]
