The grille tray also serves as a narrow-diameter mounting flange when the metal ears are removed from the speaker’s frame. The C5-400cm is designed to operate within a bandwidth of 300 Hz – 5 kHz. No crossover filter is provided with this speaker. Sonic character: Smooth and balanced Made in Germany, Sold individually.
This JL Audio C5-400CM-RP is precision-built in Germany alongside JL’s flagship ZR components, incorporating their exclusive DMA-optimized motor and patented Elevated Frame Cooling technologies. Particular emphasis has been placed on off-axis response and dynamic stability which might not be that important during a five minute evaluation on a demo board, but makes all the difference when installed in your car. The driver features a die-cast alloy basket and renowned Kurt Müller designed cone and suspension.
DMA is JL Audio’s proprietary Dynamic Motor Analysis system and is aimed at improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, Evolution C5 motors remain linear in motor force over an extreme range of excursion and also maintain a highly stable fixed magnetic field in the gap over a wide power range. This leads to vastly reduced distortion and faithfully reproduced transients… or put simply: tight, clean, articulate low end. In addition, JL Audio turns to their partners at Germany’s Dr. Kurt Müller & Co. for critical cone and suspension elements that provide unparalleled woofer performance. Recommended Power Range¹: 25 – 150 watts per channel. Mineral-Filled Polypropylene Cone, Butyl Rubber Surround, Ferrite Woofer Magnet, 1.00″ Voice Coil on Kapton Former, Low-Profile, Symmetrical Roll Spider.
