4-inch (100 mm) Component Midrange, with Grille
This superbly-balanced C5-400cm component midrange benefits from Kurt M ller cones and suspensions. The speaker is built on a stamped steel chassis with removable mounting tabs, which allows it to be installed in a variety of mounting applications.
Passive crossover networks are not included with C5 component drivers, as they are designed for active systems. Instead, we recommend a high-quality tuning DSP, such as the JL Audio TwK™ 88 or D8, and a dedicated amplifier channel for each C5 loudspeaker in the system. Precise setup of equalization, delay and crossover filters will ensure optimal in-vehicle performance.

Made in Germany.
JL Audio's proprietary Dynamic Motor Analysis system is a powerful suite of FEA-based modeling systems, first developed by JL Audio in 1997 and refined over the years to scientifically address the issue of speaker motor linearity. This leads to vastly reduced distortion and faithfully reproduced transients... or put simply: tight, clean, articulate bass. Elevated Frame Cooling (U.S. Patent #6,219,431 & #6,229,902)
JL Audio's patented Elevated Frame Cooling design delivers cool air through slots directly above the top-plate to the voice coil of the speaker. This not only enhances power handling, but also sound quality by minimizing dynamic parameter shifts and power compression. Dr. Kurt Muller & Co.
The best sound requires cones and suspensions made to the highest standards in the world.
