I’ve always loved the punchiness of jbl speakers and their clarity. It is amazing just what an improvement these are over the standard speakers and i can’t recommend them enough.

I like the warm sound of these speakers. The build quality of the crossover casing could be better and would have preferred the tweeters to sit more flush, but i am still happy with my purchase. Not sure of the bass levels on their own, but have them in a box with a bass port and this has plenty of bass for me.

JBL Car GTO 629 6.5 Inch 2-Way Coaxial In-Car Audio Speakers (Pair) – Black

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Advanced FRP frames are nonmagnetic to transfer more energy to the voice coil, and the nonresonant property improves overall sound quality.
  • Carbon-injected Plus One cones deliver more diaphragm area than other speakers in the class. The carbon material is light while still maintaining stiffness to perform well with rapid cone movement.
  • Frequency response up to 21kHz means a bright, airy sound that opens up the listening space.
  • Vented magnet assemblies keep the voice coil cool and reduce power compression over time
  • Three-ohm voice coils help compensate for added resistance in thin-gauge factory speaker wire. Compatible with all 4 ohm-rated amplifiers and head units.

Decent speakers for the money. It was a toss up between these and a pair of pioneer speakers that were a lot cheaper, i plumped for these and was very happy with the quality when they arrived. Small fixing kit that does not include wiring connectors which i think it should at the money. The instructions are pretty naff, in that they only tell you speaker sizes and very little else. I bought the 100mm speakers and they do not have the on/off tweeter switch that others have complained about. The sound is pretty good, loads of bass for such small speakers and no distortion even when the volume is turned up to 75%. I would have liked a little more mid range as we often listen to speech, but there’s enough for music of all types. We fitted these as additional speakers in a motorhome and they have improved the sound dramatically, but i’d be interested to compare them with the cheaper pioneer three ways as i think the pioneer would just about edge it. Overall though very happy, sound is good, certainly not going to blow out the cones anytime soon and like the none too flashy covers that don’t stand out too much.

Great sound, very good quality.

JBL Car GTO 629 6.5 Inch 2-Way Coaxial In-Car Audio Speakers (Pair) – Black : Great sound for the size, replaced the standard speakers from my bmw z4 with these and there’s a world of difference. Great clarity and better level of low frequencies. Not the best i’ve ever heard but amazing value for money and easy to fit.

Big, dispersed sound stage belies their diminutive stature. Fantastic quality and a vast improvement on my other tweeters. Very naturally bright and sharp sounding – but one can always make a custom eq if this is ‘too much’. First impressions upon opening the box – my word, they’re tiny. Very small in comparison to expectations – do not be fooled they pack a punch and ‘spread’ the sound very well. This is the best thing is how they ‘disperse’ and spread the sound wide to fill the cabin. . It belies their small size frankly. They feel re-assuredly heavy and quality, however. Second point, though there were about 4 different mounting options, not one of them fit my car (citroen c1) front dash tweeters.

I was shocked at how bad they were. I initially tried to get hold of a certain set of discontinued pioneer coaxial speakers, but to no avail. I’ve installed a huge number of speakers into my cars over the years, but these jbl’s are by far the strangest i’ve ever fitted. I’d read the other reviews regarding “break in” time and was prepared to have to bed them in. What i wasn’t prepared for were quite possibly the most ragged and harsh out of the box sound ever for speakers around this price range. I was shocked at how bad they were. Dull mids, almost no bass and tweeters as shrill as a baby screaming through a loudhaler. They look and feel well made and have about every type of fitting you’ll ever need in the box. I’m about three weeks in now and i’ve slowly been talking up the volume and tweaking the frequency inputs.

Ok, but limited by oval design. Don’t get me wrong, these speakers are well made and do the job intended but 6×9 speakers can never rate better than ok, since they resonate at different frequencies in two different planes at 90 degrees to each other. (much like my eyes which are oval, i need glasses to correct the two different focal lengths in different planes)i bought these to replace the door speakers in my lexus, which laughably has the “mark levinson premium sound system” – clearly not, if it uses oval speakersignoring the deficiencies of oval speakers, i have removed the high frequency speakers from these jbls, as my car just uses them for base output. These speakers haven’t been run-in yet, but already out perform the so-called premium speakers (which rotted, by the way) that they replaced. All-in-all i’m glad i bought them as i don’t currently have the time to re-jig the car door to accept 6.

I bought a pair of sony 3 way speakers and these at the same time and let the audio fitter choose which one was better. He said without a doubt the jbl. The magnet on these is big and heavy, equating to power. Sound is crisp and clean with great bass. Make sure you have a good quality head unit to get the best out of these :).

Crisp and beautiful sound, don’t judge it too quick it takes time until the cone gets softer then you will hear what you’re expecting.

Echo® MegaLoop DAC TM Induction Loop System Echo® MegaLoop DAC™ Induction Loop System, Mum will be able to listen to digital radio as well from the TV in the bedroom lying in bed.

Quite uncomplicated to established up, and excellent performance. It changed an earlier model which could not backlink to the tv and could only be made use of with the virgin box. This one has the option of an optical connection, which manufactured all the big difference. A very first class …
