The next step in speaker quality

You need great speakers to turn the audio signals from your car stereo into music. The Evolution™ TR series component speakers take advantage of JL Audio's extensive research and obsessive testing to deliver excellent performance at prices any audio enthusiast can afford.

JL Audio's TR650-CSi component speaker system uses long-excursion 6-3/4" mica-filled polypropylene woofers for enhanced low-frequency response that'll do justice to your drums and bass. The separate 1/2" woven textile dome tweeters broadcast all the little details that bring your music to life. Ferrofluid cooled tweeters and butyl rubber surrounds mean that these component speakers will bring you great music for many years to come.

Note: JL Audio describes this model as a 6-1/2" speaker. Most manufacturers designate this same frame size as a 6-3/4" speaker. For simplicity's sake we list it as a 6-3/4" speaker.

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

Priced per pair

These sound great, and have a precise, crisp sound to them. I typically prefer better lows in woofers, but my sub (when I have it on) makes up for their lack. Not sure I would like these without a sub.

Product Research


Woofers: The JL Audio Evolution TR650-CSi component speakers feature 6-3/4" injection-molded, mica-filled polypropylene cone woofers with 1" voice coils and flat-profile, symmetrical-roll spiders. The woofers feature long excursion and enhanced low-frequency extension for power, more realistic bass. The woofers use butyl rubber surrounds for reliability and strength.

Tweeters: The TR650-CSi has 1/2" textile dome tweeters with integral phase plugs and powerful, ferro-fluid cooled and damped neodymium magnets. You can mount the tweeters in the supplied flush-mount or surface-mount fixtures. The tweeters do not swivel or angle in the flush-mount or surface-mount fixtures.

Tweeter Mounting Dimensions:

Mounting Fixture Mounting Depth Mounting Height Frame Diameter Cutout Diameter
Flush Mount 0.6"
(.6875" screw depth)
0.341" 1.792" 1.578"
Surface Mount N/A
(0.75" screw depth)
1.083" 1.837" N/A

Crossovers: The TR650-CSi components use electrolytic capacitors on the in-line 1st order high-pass filters. The woofer is unfiltered, using its engineered smooth roll-off characteristics to blend with its tweeter. 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.

Grilles: Two black metal mesh grilles and black ABS plastic grille frames are included with the speakers.

2 questions already asked

He JL Audio TR650 already have a filter built in to the wiring so you can leave it off . That is what I would do [ Gillian  Sep 28, 2016 ]
These I believe have built in filters. I have these speakers and do not use the high pass filter. They sound perfect to me and better the louder you go [ andrew  Sep 28, 2016 ]
It has in line crossovers for the tweeters. No need to do any "installation" for them and they sound amazing. [ Aaron  Jun 12, 2014 ]
No cross overs [ BOBBY  Jun 12, 2014 ]
The TR650-CSi comes with speaker wire and a separately wired high-capacity crossover for the tweeter. There is no included crossover for the woofer nor is there a two way passive crossover network included. [ Paul  Jun 12, 2014 ]
These speakers do not come with pre-built crossovers but do have capacitors and inductors that act as high pass and low pass filters. I am personally very happy with these relatively low powered speakers as they produce clear sound far superior to the factory speakers in my Honda Ridgeline and did not require an additional amplifier. Hard to beat a 91 dB sensitivity rated speaker for what I paid for these speakers. If you're looking for a more efficient speaker (93 dB) you're paying a premium and probably would never identify any difference in modern music. [ Eddie  Jun 12, 2014 ]
It had an inline filter, they worked pretty good! [ Marlon  Jun 12, 2014 ]
I really don't know. I bought these for a friend and we are waiting on his 64 bel air to get upholstery before we do install. Wish I could be more help but we haven't even opened the box yet. [ DAVID J  Jun 12, 2014 ]
In-line crossover between woofer and tweeter.?? [ Randy  Jun 12, 2014 ]
