JL Audio C3-650 #99022 – Evolution Component Speaker System – Pair
With the JL Audio C3-650 Convertible Component Systems, the same product can be deployed in either configuration, delivering outstanding audio power and quality in each application.
The JL Audio C3-650 system features 6.5-inch (165 mm) component woofers with oversized 1.2-inch (30.5 mm) voice coils, mineral-filled polypropylene cones and injection-molded polymer baskets. The woofer design benefits from JL Audio’s vast woofer design experience and advanced modeling systems.
The C3 tweeters are built with 1-inch silk dome diaphragms that deliver powerful, extended response, on and off axis. Flush-mounting and surface-mounting fixtures are included to fit a wide variety of installation needs. They can also be mounted onto the woofers in a coaxial format using the included fixtures.
C3 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!
Woofer grilles are included, each consisting of a black grille tray and a black steel mesh grille with an electroformed JL Audio logo.
Sonic character: Clean and Powerful
Sold as a pair.
Coaxial or Component: Both approaches can yield excellent results.
Coaxial mounting has the benefit of placing the tweeter in close proximity to the acoustic center of the woofer, resulting in more coherent output and predictable crossover behavior. From a purely practical perspective, it also avoids having to cut a separate hole for the tweeter.
Separate mounting has the benefit of placing the tweeter where it is less likely to be blocked by legs or other obstructions. As long as you don’t separate the tweeter too far from the woofer, this approach will still yield good coherence and predictable crossover behavior.
JL Audio’s Convertible Components give you the option of installing the speakers as separate components or as coaxial systems (tweeters mounted onto the center of each woofer).
