Transform your sound

JL Audio's TR050-CT 1/2" textile dome tweeters can add focus and detail to the sound of your car's stereo system.

Caprice replacements

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are some awesome tweeters, well worth the money. And they fit in some really small spaces for how much good quality sound you get from them. My passenger side tweeter failed, and these surprisingly fit right in the same cup that was glued into the doors from the old ones, and having the extra wire was really nice as well, made it easier to work with the door panel off of the door.

Pros: - really good quality sound - compact size, no problem with fitment

Cons: - none

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these speakers because the right tweeter failed, and they looked like a good fit. I was able to install them in the stock location by making a replacement for the original spring wire retaining clip sized correctly for the JL speaker. I soldered the factory wires to the speaker. The repair took 1.5 hours for both speakers. I had the spring wire, but most hardware stores have it. With the door panels in, the car looks stock. I have already replaced the stock subwoffers with the JL 6W0-4 6 inch ones, chosen because they fit behind the stock rear deck with only minor mods. They were an improvement, and with the tweeters the system is upgraded from a decent (bose) factory system to a really top end system, very similar in fidelity to my BMW M5. I really recommend this entire upgrade. The stock Audi speakers fail in most of the cars, and the entire upgrade, woofers and tweeters costs less than one speaker from Audi. I am very happy with JL

Features

Tweeters: The TR050-CTi is a pair of 1/2" textile dome tweeters with integral phase plugs and powerful, ferro-fluid cooled and damped neodymium magnets. The tweeters come installed in flush-mount fixtures. For surface mounting, the flush-mount fixtures simply slide into the surface-mount fixtures. The tweeters do not swivel or angle in the flush-mount or surface-mount fixtures.

Crossovers: The TR050-CTi tweeters use electrolytic capacitors on the in-line 1st order high-pass filters. The Polyswitch electronic tweeter protection circuit is designed to minimize the possibility of tweeter failure. It monitors current going to the tweeter and will disconnect the tweeter from the signal when it senses overload. Once the volume has been reduced, the protection circuit will reset itself automatically.
