Summary: Great product I must say. Not only do they sound great it was a plug and play set up since I have already had my wires ran to the rear of the car I found this product to be considerable less expensive then what my local car stereo guy wanted It made a considerable difference in the sound of my rear car speakers.
Summary: Great sound, good quality! I basically upgraded my cars Original speakers system to these JL's and in the rear used Kickers, cause JL don't offer speakers for my car rear deck and just with this simple change the notice in bass and sound is amazing, so far I'm very satisfied!
Summary: Awesome speakers. Definitely recommend if it fits ones budget. I have a '97 Cherokee and only am running these two speakers. I will be installing two speaker bars to run the 6.5's and add an amplifier. Then it will be sounding much better, but not too bad with only two speakers.
Conclusion: JL audio speakers will always be included on my list of speakers to consider for any future car audio system. Nice mid range, and the tweeters are impressive. I expect no low end from 5 1/4's, but these surprised me. They will not make you give up on your sub, but they do go lower than you expect. Great speakers.

Summary: I installed this 5-1/4", two-way set of JL Audio speakers in my 2000 Buick Century as part of an upgrade from the GM stock system. I installed a bottom-of-the-line Kenwood head unit with two 6x9" JL Audio speakers in the rear deck behind the back seats. These speakers were installed in the front doors. Following the installation, I demoed the new system. And was amazed at the sonic quality for the money!
Conclusion: Never have I heard such amazing bass response and lifelike highs from a 2-way speaker. Makes my old Alpine Type-R's sound like crap. If you want the best possible sound and can't get components these are your next best option.
Excerpt: The JL Audio C2-525x speakers have a great sound quality to them and are an excellent upgrade to any car sound system. Although they come at a price they produce excellent quality and clarity even at high sound levels. The instillation of these speakers is very easy with all of the speaker connections coming in the box along with the speakers. The only weakness to the speaker is it size though.
Pros: Great sound quality .
Cons: Size of speaker limits amount of bass produced .
