JL Audio's C5075-CT 3/4" silk dome tweeters bring your high-frequency sounds into crisp, clear focus. You'll hear more details in your music, with a real sense of where each instrument is placed in the mix.

Each tweeter comes with mounting hardware for flush- or surface-mounting, and JL Audio's ratcheting swivel rotation (RSR) flush-mount system permits precise aiming even after installation. The C5075-CT tweeters feature strong, ferrofluid-cooled neodymium magnets for superior performance.

Note: These tweeters must be used with the supplied in-line high-pass crossover filters or another appropriate external crossover. Failure to do so could lead to damage to the tweeters not covered under the warranty.

Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install these tweeters in the factory locations.

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

After trying multiple tweeters from different companies which were way too harsh and ear piercing, I decided to give these a try. I've read and heard that these aren't harsh like other tweeters and are some of the smoothest. Fingers crossed. [ Justin  May 03, 2017 ]
looking for my other tweeters 4 the c2650 couldn't find so i went with these!!thank u [ Corey Wayne  Nov 10, 2016 ]
I needed to expand the high frequency response and improve the stereo imaging of the speakers in the main saloon of my sailboat and these match up well with the JL Audio C690-tx speakers that I already have. [ David  Jul 04, 2016 ]
I run all the same components in a single system. I prefer jl audio over all and have since the 1990's. [ Steven  Feb 11, 2016 ]
They rock! And recomended [ J  Jan 09, 2016 ]
