Our take on the JL Audio C5-650cw

If you're looking to add bass to your ride without sacrificing trunk space, here's a great solution. Pair two of these JL Audio C5-650cw woofers with the right components for fatter, fuller guitar and bass in your soundstage.

JL Audio built this 6-3/4" woofer for extended cone travel so it'll move more air, putting more oomph in your music when the rhythm section kicks in. This C5 Series woofer uses the same patented cooling technology developed for the ZR Series speakers, so it'll play with a wide dynamic range at all volumes.

If you've already got a sub in the back, adding two of these woofers is great for adding some midbass punch in your interior. Even better, install JL Audio's C5-650 6-3/4" component system up front, then use two of these matched woofers in the rear to reinforce midrange and upper bass performance while keeping your soundstage right up front.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 55 and 110 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Amazing small little subs. I bought a pair to replace my 2016 Nissan Frontier rear speakers and paired them with a 300/4 jl audio amp and they sound amazing.

Put these in the rear doors of a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee without crossovers as I didn't want extremely heavy bass also put 4 way 6x9s in the front doors sounds Killer.

Pros: depth

Features

Cast Alloy Baskets: The Evolution C5 woofers feature cast alloy woofer baskets and incorporate JL Audio's patented Elevated Frame cooling system. This cooling technology, also found on the flagship ZR component systems and W7 and W6v2 subwoofers, allows air to flow directly across the top plate and onto the voice coil windings to greatly improve linearity at all listening levels.

Motor Structure: The DMA (Dynamic Motor Analysis)-optimized motor structure achieves outstanding linearity.

Woofer Cones: The cone and suspension elements were designed and manufactured by the world-famous Dr. Kurt Müller & Co of Germany. The speakers feature low-mass, mineral-filled polypropylene cones with butyl rubber surrounds. The cone and surround are inherently well damped to deliver an uncolored, neutral bass without any coloration. The speakers are also equipped with symmetrical-roll, hybrid-weave spiders.

I have this small sub, but have a factory amp in my car, so I can't say 100% if it will work being driven from the head unit alone. Check and compare your existing speaker's wattage and ohm ratings to see if they are close would be my only suggestion. [ Matt  Mar 20, 2017 ]
