5 x 7 / 6 x 8-inch (125 x 180 mm) Component Woofer
Many people mistakenly believe that an oval speaker cannot perform as well as a round one, leading to many instances of 5.25-inch speakers being installed into 5 x 7-inch openings. JL Audio's engineers have put in the time and effort to create fantastic-sounding speakers that drop into oval openings and deliver equivalent performance to our 6.5-inch (165 mm) round speaker systems... guaranteed. So, don't make the mistake of losing cone area and efficiency by stepping down to a smaller round speaker... these ovals rock.
C5-570cw component woofers are built using Kurt M ller cones and suspensions with die-cast alloy baskets. This woofer benefits from JL Audio's vast woofer design experience and advanced modeling systems.
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.

Sold individually, with one electroformed JL Audio logo. No woofer grilles are included (or available) for this speaker.Technology Dynamic Motor Analysis - DMA Optimized Motor
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.
