    Bought JBL GX after I wanted crisp sound in my New Jeep Wrangler I picked up 2 weeks ago,first of all I'm not a stereo freak and own 3 other vehicles truck,mid size,compact all have factory speakers and enjoy them. But now with my Jeep I wanted good sounding sound while going topless factory won't cut it...so I installed these myself to sound bar back and like the ole saying goes it's like freaking night and day...mids,highs,base even with factory radio make me Happy,Happy a plus is you get EVERYTHING you need for install other then cutting factory harness and replaced with spade connectors.20 cents each. I also added some polyfil for added sound@$3 for a big bag that you will only use 10th..so THE CONS::now I have to buy another set for front because I day dream of the acoustic sounds I would complete ,plus why would I be satisfied with waste sound coming from factory front...headed tomorrow back to Best Buy...quit wasting time and money on anything else go JBL DUDE...I'm Not bias I have had pioneer , Alpine and Bose speakers in the past

    So... I went to my local best buy because of a sale they had on another set of 2-Way 6.5-inch speakers. When I got to the store, I decided to listen to all the speakers that were connected in their display. I pleased with the sound quality of the Kenwood's that I had planned on purchasing, when comparing them to the sound of the Pioneer and JVC models. Then I decided to take a listen to the JBL GX602. BLOWN AWAY. I could hear instruments on the JBL's that weren't even present on the Kenwood's or ANY OTHER'S that were on display. It was like going from VHS to DVD, or Cassette to CD. It was THAT MUCH BETTER. Even though the price of the JBL's were double that of the Kenwood's that I had intended on purchasing, I bit the bullet and purchased them anyway. I loved them so much that I also decided to buy the matching 6x9's for the rear of my classic 1968 VW BUS. If you just want SOUND, then buy whatever you like. If you want to hear MUSIC... REALLY hear music. I suggest that you pickup a set of the JBL's. It really helps that I picked these up on sale! One final note... The speakers that came in at a CLOSE second (from a sound quality perspective) were the Kicker 2-Way 6.5-inch. I spent more than 30 minutes just comparing these two side by side, and although they were VERY CLOSE in sound quality, I chose the JBL's because their Mid Range was not as harsh as the Kicker, and the sale price on the GX602's made them cost just a few dollars more than the Kickers. If the GX602's had not been on sale, I most likely would have chosen the Kickers.

    Chrysler Crossfire Rear Bass Replacement Speakers

    Posted
    Perfect
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I needed to replace the (2) rear / behind the seats Sub woofers in my 2004 Chrysler Crossfire. This car comes with a factory Infinity (6) Speaker System, including (2) Tweeters, (2) Mid Range Speakers , and (2) Bass Woofers behind the seats. My (2) Bass Speakers had dry rotted, and needed to find replacements. Factory system handled 2 ohm speakers, with low wattage needed per channel, and very hard to find. Unfortunately you can no longer purchase these speakers from the Chrysler. Most speakers on the market are 4 ohm Speakers with a lot more power than I need. I spoke with one of the Techs at Best Buy, and he recommended that if I want to keep my current system, 4 ohms speakers would not give me the full sound that I want. The JBL GX602 were rated at 2.3 ohms, with about 60 watts continuous. I purchased them...and they were perfect. Perfect fit inside the factory speaker housing. Holes lined up perfectly, and was able to use the factory speaker harness. Easy connect; Red (positive), Black (negative)...that easy. No cutting, not modifying. Due to the factory Infinity having (2) Tweeters, (2) Mid Range Speakers and (2) Bass Range Speakers, the system has a built in Crossover. The JBL GX602 also has a range that will give me that bass, that I want to get back. This was an easy install, and a perfect match. Thanks for the tech at Best Buy for being straight up with me on the info and specs recommended, and Best Buy for carrying a great speaker. They were on sale too!!

    I consulted with Audio Installer Mike Pieceynski Best Buy store 1451 for my 2016 Nissan crew 4door. I knew I wanted to use the Alpine PDX 400w amp instead of replacing my factory head and a compact sub under the seat. He suggested the JBL BassPro 8” sub and JBL 6x9 3 ways in the front door panels and JBL 6.5 2 ways in the rear. I wanted clarity, every acoustical detail, like a live stage. He set the door speakers to mid and high only and w/ bass phased out of them. I listen to music using high end Sennheiser headphones and the reproduction of this setup in my truck is amazing (proper acoustic staging in an auto is impossible) but this sounds pretty awesome. It sounds like the bass is coming from the speakers but its coming from the rear sub. It’s not booming bass. Its accurate studio recorded bass. Vocals are clear and in front, guitars soar. Keyboards and percussion are separated, and bass is solid on the bottom. Not all albums are produced the same, some good and some muddy, but this delivers clean live studio sound across almost all genres (I listen to a lot of West Coast Reggae, Rock, etc and equalizer set to Dance). The JBL speakers are awesome. Not sure how they sound stock without the bass phased out but I would recommend them. I did massive research on all the high-end brands and these offer value and quality!

    Excellent Speaker

    I used to be professional car audio installer many years ago and still work on some side projects. I have installed and listened to a ton of different speakers. These speakers are very clean and full sounding. They pair well with a factory head unit or an amp due to their 2 ohm design. Obviously they will sound even better when amplified. I installed a pair of the 6.5" inch coaxial speakers (JBL GX602) and a set of the 6.5" components (JBL GX600C) into a 2016 Wrangler Unlimited Sport. You need a sub for the full sound spectrum. I installed a Kicker HS8 under the drivers seat which pairs perfectly in this situation. The set up is surprisingly loud and clean of the factory head unit, even with the top down. The highs are very bright so you may find yourself turning the treble setting to neutral or even to negative depending on the song/type of music. If you are looking for lots of bass you are not going to get that out of most 6.5" speakers so definitely add a sub. I would absolutely buy these again. Are there better sounding speakers out there...yes but, I can't imagine anyone finding a better speaker in this price range. Especially when on sale.

    When I first heard these, I thought there was some electronic processing going on. (DSP) Nope. They really do just image that well. I am going to try to really give these a good review in the car doors, but to me, I would buy these in a second if I wanted to build a set of speakers for the house as my driver of choice. The fact they sounded almost as sweet as some of the home audio gear at Magnolia's high end rooms really made my ears and my eyes pop out. This had to be some wizard who made these sound this good. It reminded me of the better car audio I have seen over the years. This one is just amazing for the price. I would not hesitate for a second to buy these and hope the ones that come in the box sound this good as the display model on the sound board. I was blown away by just how distortion free the sound was. And it was not just a one note wonder. The tweeter and the midbass driver are well matched. I am not a big fan of the grill, but it could be worse. The fact that JBL really made a speaker that the rest of us audio guys care about that not only hits a price sweet point, it also does it with ease of installation in tight spaces is a testament to the JBL we all know and love.

    Terrible Quality

    I'm sure a good chunk of this is the fault of Best Buy, but I went there because the factory speakers in my truck were starting to go, and the buzzing was starting to become more noticable. Went to Best Buy for new speakers - was going to get Alpines, but ended up getting this after the sales person convinced me with a quick demo and a sale. After they were installed by Best Buy, within less than an hour these speakers started buzzing. Brought the truck back in, and they told me the speakers were blown already. This was after listening to country music, on low volume - something even remotely good speakers SHOULD be able to handle. Was told at this point that these speakers are not meant to have any bass whatsoever going into them, and that I should've had bass blockers installed in-line and a subwoofer instead. This would've been GREAT information to have BEFORE I bought them when I told the sales person I didn't want a subwoofer right now. I should've just gone with the Alpines instead of these junky speakers.

    Mediocre

    I have a Jeep wrangler. I got a pair of Kicker speakers for Christmas a few years back and they were a huge difference in sound in the Jeep - I could tell there was a huge difference immediately. Of course, 13 months later one blew (only one month outside the purchase date)... So, I was looking for something that wasn't Kicker, I wasn't very happy that they didn't last. I did some research for a while and purchased these speakers. I'm not impressed with the sound at all - in fact, I almost feel like the factory speakers were better than these. It feels like there is no depth to the sound, no bass, no real power. I feel like there is a lot missing in my sound, and unfortunately I spent time and money putting these into my vehicle.
