JBL GTO609C Premium 6.5-Inch Component Speaker System


About this item

Carbon-injected Plus One cones are larger than others in their size class, meaning they move more air and make more bass

Soft-dome tweeters feature oversized voice coils for greater heat dissipation and higher power handling resulting in smooth, fatigue free highs

The patented I-Mount system allows unparalleled flexibility whether you flush- or surface-mount your component tweeters

A dual-level tweeter volume adjustment helps compensate for less-than-perfect speaker placement, and can even be set to suit your personal listening preference and musical taste

Low-impedance, three-ohm speakers compensate for the undersized wires found in many of today’s cars, and make the most of every watt your car stereo can deliver

Looking for a longer lasting speaker? Look no futher than the GTO9 Series. Our Carbon-Compostie, non magentic frames maintain their integrity and precision even under thew most demanding conditions.

JBL Premium 6.5-Inch Component Speaker System – Set of 2

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.

The GTO 609C’s Plus One carbon-injected cones provide more overall speaker-cone area than other cones in its class. With an effective increase in cone area, the speaker radiates more air. Also, its 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.

    This review is for the GTO 609c 6.5” component set. I am amazed at the quality of sound these speakers make! I replaced a 5 year old set of Rockford Fosgate power 6.5” coaxial speakers with these in my 3rd Gen Honda CR-V(2010). I was actually pretty satisfied with the sound from the RF coaxials,but have been really wanting to try a component set for better sound. I am running one Punch P3 12” sub and the bass just really overpowered the mids and highs. I mounted the tweeters in the sail panels (surface mount) and put the crossovers inside the door panels. As other reviews have mentioned the tweeters are tiny! Don’t let that discourage you though..these things really sing! I am really impressed with the range of sound these speakers reproduce. I’m not putting a lot of bass to these due to having a subwoofer but they still have a nice midrange punch. These are also currently running only off my Pioneer head unit at approx 22W Rms. I plan to amplify these soon and I’m sure the sound will be even more amazing! Overall the quality and sound that these speakers make is fantastic at this price point. If you want a great sounding component set without breaking the these already!!*Update to review!*Finally got around to installing amp on these and WOW! Not only do they get loud but the clarity and detail is amazing even at low to moderate volume. The amp is a JBL GX-A602 2 channel (60wx2 RMS) This is also a great little amp that puts out a good amount of power for running a component set and its small footprint makes mounting easy…another great JBL product!

    Just got these in, spent close to 2 weeks trying to review other speakers (other brands) and kept landing back on JBL. New car, stock speakers were not great and wanted a pair that gave “some bass”. Obviously not going to get deep bass from these but they do produce good bass, excellent mids/tweets. Tried all types of music (Rap/Rock/Jazz etc). Everything sounds great. Very happy with this purchase and using the stock deck. My advice, get them. You will not be disappointed. Just heads up, need some speaker wires it doesn’t come with.UPDATE: After a few good weeks of listening to these they actually sound better. Let them break in a bit .
