JBL GTO609C 6.5" 2-Way 90W RMS 270W Peak Power 3-ohms Component Car Audio Speaker System
If you're in the market for new speakers, you've just found a serious contender. JBL created their GTO609 6.5" speakers as a hi-fi solution for those who want better sound in their vehicle.
The GTO series provides a completely new musical experience in your car !
The JBL® GTO Series of high-fidelity automotive speakers features innovative technologies that we’ve engineered for the environment and for the conditions in today’s cars to help them deliver exceptional sound. Using carbon-injected Plus One® (U.S. patent no. 7,548,631) woofer cones, fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) frames, butyl-rubber surrounds and fabric tweeter diaphragms, the GTO Series automotive speakers are the ideal upgrade to any car’s audio system. GTO Series speakers, including component separates with woofer, tweeter and passive crossover, cover the most popular factory-replacement and aftermarket sizes. Other unique features – such as UniPivot™ (U.S. patent no. 6,002,780) tweeter positioning and tweeter level controls on select coaxial models, and the I-Mount™ (U.S. patent no. 5,859,917) system for the tweeters in the component separates – provide even greater installation flexibility so you can achieve the ultimate in-vehicle sound experience. Easily installed and built to last, the JBL GTO Series speakers bring music to life in your car.
25 – 270 Watts Suggested Amplifier Power Range
JBL engineers designed the GTO 609C component speaker to produce strong, clear sound from a head-unit or amplifier capable of delivering up to 270 watts of power. This makes the GTO 609C an ideal match to systems powered with head-unit or factory-amplifier power levels. Even better, the speaker matches many of the GTO Series amplifier combinations. As a result, it can keep up with systems that feature one or more subwoofers and satisfy high-fidelity audiophile listeners. And its great power-handling specifications also increase reliability over the lifetime of the speaker.
Patented Plus One Woofer-cone Technology
The GTO 609C’s Plus One carbon-injected cones provide more overall speaker-cone area than others in the same class. With an effective increase in cone area, the speaker radiates more air. Also, the carbon-injected cone material produces a lighter and stiffer cone. The result is a better low-frequency response and a greater ability to make those important musical notes that people often associate with larger speaker sizes.
Carbon-Composite Non Magnetic Frame
Looking for a longer lasting speaker? Look no futher than the GTO Series. Our Carbon-Compostie, non magentic frames maintain their integrity and precision even under thew most demanding conditions.
Vented Magnet Assemblies
The JBL GTO 609C speakers feature vented magnet assemblies on the woofer/midrange driver to help cool the voice coil.Keeping the voice coil cool adds to increased reliability from greater power handling, and helps eliminate power compression that can distort the speakers' sound.
Frequency Response Up to 21kHz
A wide frequency response that extends beyond 20kHz helps compensate for speaker-placement variations in your car and for human hearing deficiencies in the high-frequency spectrum above 15kHz.The result is that the JBL GTO 609C component speakers deliver more of the full-range frequency response that you associate with great sound.
High Sensitivity (92dB@2.83V/1m)
High sensitivity allows a wider range of power to provide great sound without overdriving the audio system. With a sensitivity of 92 decibels at 2.83 volts/1 meter, the GTO 609C speakers achieve excellent volume and musicality with as little as 5 watts RMS.That means better overall performance with moderate power driving the speaker.And better performance makes the speakers an ideal replacement for factory speakers as well as for any aftermarket speaker installation.
Edge-driven, Soft-dome Tweeter Diaphragms
The edge-driven, soft-dome tweeter design in the JBL GTO 529 increases power handling while reducing high-frequency distortion.Edge-driven tweeters also have better dispersion characteristics and allow a lower crossover frequency, which improves imaging.The result is better vocals and clarity in your music.There's no sense having it loud if it doesn't sound clean, too.
12dB/ Octave Passive Crossovers
A dedicated 12-decibel/ octave passive crossover network in the component sets increases power handling and musical clarity in the JBL GTO 609C two-way component speakers. It provides protection for the tweeter and contoured filtering at the crossover point between the woofer and tweeter.
True 3 Ohm Technology
Low-Impedance, three ohm voice coils compensate for the undergauged speaker wiring found in many of today's cars, and make the most of every watt your amplifier or head unit can deliver.
