Two New JL Audio car speaker series

Garmin is shipping two new JL Audio speaker series including the C6, a new premium line just under the flagship C7 speakers, and a new Custom Fit drop-in speaker line.

The C6 borrows technology from the C7 line. It uses premium, 1-inch silk dome tweeters and 6.5-inch component woofers. It is available as a 2-way component system with passive crossover network or as individual speakers for active system applications.


  • Motor plates with JL Audio proprietary DMA-optimized technology help create linear motor force under power, leading to greater mid-bass impact and low distortion.
  • Cast alloy frames include Elevated Frame Cooling, while the large diameter, linear profile and flat spider design help provide linear compliance and improved excursion capability.
  • Center-cap is designed to optimize the high-frequency response of the woofer for seamless transition to the tweeter’s response.
  • An oversized voice coil offers extended power handling capability while minimizing thermal compression and distortion at higher listening levels.
  • Pure silk dome tweeter design “delivers smooth, high-frequency performance with excellent off-axis response and damping.”
  • Neodymium motors deliver high magnetic flux with a compact design.
  • Ferrofluid cooling and damping improves reliability and response smoothness.
  • The Passive Crossover Network has four levels of tweeter adjustments as well as:
    • Premium polyester film and electrolytic capacitors
    • Air-core, low-loss inductors
    • Protective case with a smoked polycarbonate cover

The JL Audio C6 series has a suggested retail price starting at $999.99.

The new series is designed for premium, direct fit, factory speaker replacement.  The line fits in most popular vehicles including models from Chevrolet, GMC, Cadillac, Dodge, Jeep, RAM, Toyota and others.

The speakers use compact composite frames with breakaway mounting tabs and built-in, low-profile grilles to fit a wide range of factory speaker locations.

The Custom Fit speakers are offered in two sizes – 2.75-inches and 3.50-inches. They can  be used as mid-tweeters in passive systems or in active systems as mid-range drivers or mid-tweeters.


  • Ultra-light, fiber-reinforced pulp cone features a custom “S” roll surround for better efficiency and extended high-frequency response.
  • DMA-optimized motor systems help create greater linearity and lower distortion.
  • Progressive-roll, flat spiders are designed for linear compliance, while neodymium magnets help keep the speakers light and offer optimal flux density.
  • The low-profile, perforated metal grille fits behind factory trim and helps provide UV protection when installed on the dash.

The Custom Fit speakers are shipping now at a suggested retail price starting at $149.99.
