Conclusion: If you're looking for a great speaker go for these JL's. I'm a live sound engineer and have mixed a lot of music so I thought it would be very hard to reproduce in a car what I'm used to hearing on stages. I have been nothing but impressed with the quality of these speakers. You hear the music like its right there with you. All genres sound great.
Conclusion: Thes are the best speakers Ive ever herd so far. I have been to many sound shows to say the best is deep being I have herd very expensive speakers but when I had mine installed they are pushed with a jl 500/5 and let me say loud is a tiny word for these they scream and extreemly clean. Totally amazed you can be 20 feet away from the car and I still am willing to bet you would be amazed 100%.
Conclusion: I have been a JL Audio fan for many years and have never been disappointed in their products. The C5-5x7s are a great speaker for my rear deck. I own a 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis with a set of ZR component in the front along with a JL Audio 1000/1 for my JL Audio 13w7 and a JL Audio 450/4 for the Mids & Highs. This is a great speaker for rear staging.
Summary: well another awesome product from jl. sound quality is really nice. A bit expensive though. the silk tweeters sound really clean but not harsh and the woofer does mid-bass well. these definitely compliment your sub. only problem you might run into would be finding a place to put the crossover. especially if you're putting these in your doors. also, if you're not hooking these up to an amp, do yourself a favor and buy some cheaper speakers than these.
Conclusion: In a world of all things Made in China I chose to purchase the JL Audio C5-570x because they are not!! They do cost a bit more than some other brands of speakers but I got them for less at Sonic Electronics. The JL's are installed in the front doors of my 2010 mustang I also fully Dynamat ed both doors a good thing to do.

Conclusion: I installed these gems in my /03 Ford F-250 Super Duty Super Cab fronts and powered em' with the JBL GT01004 amp off the SONY MEX BT3700U. If you REALLY want to give your speakers a run for the money, go ahead and pop in the soundtrack to the motion picture Gladiator! This disc has tracks that will put your speakers through strings, horns, kick drums and some really cool female harmony.
