JBL Power P452
4" 2-way car speakers
Our take on the JBL Power P452 by Crutchfield's Todd Cabell
Bass, power, performance JBL Power P452 4" speakers deliver the whole audio spectrum, from silky midbass to clear, taut highs. The HCL woofer cone consists of two layers of woven glass fiber with an epoxy-coated Nomex honeycomb core. This lightweight and rigid material generates exceptional midbass clarity with low distortion at all volume levels. The Plus One oversized cone design incorporates more surface area than a standard size cone, contributing to greater efficiency and larger bass output.
The pure titanium tweeters play with minimal distortion at high output levels to keep the treble bright and crisp. The woofers' oversized voice coils contribute to increased power handling. Voice-matched, external crossovers ensure flawless performance with undeniable accuracy. You can remove two mounting tabs from each speaker for fit in Toyota openings.

PlusOne HCL Woofers: The JBL Power Series P452 speakers feature Honeycomb Laminate (HCL) cone woofers. This material consists of two woven glass fiber layers with an epoxy-coated Nomex honeycomb core. This makes the cone exceptionally stiff, yet lightweight. The benefits of HCL woofers include increased efficiency, exceptional midrange clarity and lower distortion at high output levels. The PlusOne woofer cones have more surface area than conventional 4" speakers for increased bass output and increased efficiency.
Titanium Tweeters: The speakers have pure-titanium, edge-driven dome tweeters. This style tweeter is similar to those found in high end home audio loudspeakers, and the benefits include reduced distortion at high output levels and superior integration with the mid/woofer.
Oversized Voice Coils: The P452 features a voice coil larger than what is found on most models of the same size. This larger voice coil increases power handling while minimizing distortion.
Spider-Integrated Tinsel Leads: The spider integrated tinsel leads greatly enhance reliability and eliminate audible tinsel lead slap.
Crossovers: The speakers are equipped with computer-optimized passive outboard crossovers that have been voice-matched to ensure optimum imaging, clarity and detail. The dimensions of the crossovers are: Length=3.085", Width=1.835" Height=1.045, Input wires (20 gauge): 12", Output wires (20 gauge): 20".
Crossover Connections: Each crossover input lead is terminated with bare wire, and the two output leads (one for the woofer and one for the tweeter) are terminated with female quick-slides. The positive woofer lead has a 0.250" female quick-slide and the negative woofer lead has a 0.187" female quick-slide. The positive tweeter lead has a 0.205" female quick-slide and the negative tweeter lead has a 0.110" female quick-slide. These quick-slides connect directly to the woofer and tweeter terminals on each speaker.
Removable Tabs: If necessary, the mounting tabs or "ears" can be removed to allow the speakers to be mounted in locations requiring fewer than 4 tabs. The tabs are scored so they can be gripped with pliers and bent until they detach.
Grilles: The P452 speakers come with silver and black plastic grilles.
