Product Research


Balanced Dome Tweeter: Each speaker has a PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide) balanced dome tweeter. PEI is a polymer film that produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging. A semi-dome tweeter has a dome placed inside a cone; balanced dome tweeters are semi-dome tweeters with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the tweeter.

I don't understand this. Replacing the 1- or 2-ohm factory speaker with a higher-impedance aftermarket speaker will result in lower volume levels.?
stephen  Jan 12, 2018
1 answer
Right. Evidently; your factory system uses speakers that have an unusually low impedance so, when you replace them with aftermarket models (like these JVC which are 4 Ohms) they will get fewer watts from the stock system and provide less output as a result. For additional assistance and personalized recommendations, feel free to contact us directly by phone or through our online chat service:

The CS-DR520 speakers are rated for up to 40 watts continuous (RMS) each. You will find this information under the "Product Highlights" or by clicking the "Details" tab on the speaker's main webpage. I hope that helps. My bio:

whats the impedance?
rjay  Jul 08, 2017

Thanks for your question. The impedance is 4 ohms. You can find this information on the product page "Details" tab under "Specifications". Hope this helps.

Is this two 5 1/4 speakers and 2 tweeters?
trevor  Feb 12, 2017
1 answer
Thanks for your question. No, this is not a component system. There would be no separate tweeter as it's built into the 2-way speaker. You can find this information on the main product page under "What's in the Box". Hope this helps.
