JL Audio C2-600X
Evolution™ C2 Series 6-1/2" 2-way car speakers
Item # 136C2600X | MFR # 99616
Our take on the JL Audio C2-600X by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
JL Audio's Evolution C2 Series speakers
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.
Silk tweeter delivers smooth highs
The C2-600X 6-1/2" speakers feature rugged polypropylene cones that can handle high power without distortion, so you get full-bodied low tones you can really feel. 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 make sure your tunes play smoothly across the whole musical spectrum. JL Audio includes a pair of grilles for custom installations.
Note: JL Audio describes this model as a 6" speaker. Most manufacturers designate this same frame size as a 6-1/2" speaker. For simplicity's sake we list it as a 6-1/2" speaker.
Priced per pair
Best sound I have ever heard in a 6.5" speaker. I have 4 of them, each handling 75 watts with nothing but supurb and clear audio. Once again, good job to JL Audio.

Woofers: The JL Audio Evolution C2-600x coaxial speakers feature a 6-1/2 injection-molded, mica-filled polypropylene cone woofer with a butyl rubber surround. The woofer features a 1.0" 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 adequate bass, thanks to its ample mechanical clearance, optimized suspension and balanced motor design.
Tweeters: The Evolution C2-600x coaxial speakers feature 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.
Grilles: The Evolution C2-600x coaxial speakers include front-loading protective grilles with a striking design that combines black steel mesh with satin silver accents. Electroformed logo nameplates can be positioned on the grilles or elsewhere in the vehicle, according to the needs of the installation.
Mounting: This speaker system is a perfect fit for many Japanese cars that will not accept a 6-3/4 speaker without modification. The basket features three and four-hole patterns that match up with many factory mounting locations.
Size Classification Note: Crutchfield has traditionally referred to this size speaker as a 6-1/2", while some manufacturers, including JL Audio, call it a 6". The slightly larger speaker that JL Audio refers to as a 6-1/2" (C2-650x) has traditionally been categorized by Crutchfield as a 6-3/4". Please refer to the Crutchfield vehicle selector for the proper size of speaker for your vehicle.
Power Handling: JL Audio lists two power figures in the manual; 60 watts continuous power handling and recommended amp power 15-100 watts RMS. We've listed the RMS power recommendation in the specs table.
