JL Audio C5-525x

Coaxial Speaker System: 5.25-inch (130 mm) Woofer, 0.75-inch (19 mm) Silk Dome Tweeter

The smoothness and transparency of a high-end silk dome tweeter combines with top-flight woofer performance to create a coaxial loudspeaker system with exceptional refinement and dynamic capability.

The C5-525x system features 5.25-inch (130 mm) woofers with die-cast alloy baskets and Kurt Müller cones and suspensions. The woofer benefits from JL Audio's vast woofer design experience and advanced modeling systems.

Tweeters are coaxially mounted and built with 0.75-inch silk dome diaphragms that deliver smooth, extended response, on and off axis. The small size of the C5 tweeter minimizes tweeter protrusion, allowing C5 coaxials to easily fit behind most factory speaker grilles.

C5 crossover networks are compact and built with premium component parts, including Mylar® capacitors and segmented air-core inductors. Four levels of tweeter attenuation are provided, as well as three levels of mid-range presence adjustment, for twelve possible voicing combinations!

Speaker grilles are included, each consisting of a black grille tray and a black steel mesh grille with an electroformed JL Audio logo.

Sonic character: Smooth and balanced

Made in Germany, Sold as a pair.
