Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at (262) 242-5599 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves.

6.5" (165 mm) Component Woofer (with Grille)

Born from shared technologies used in our flagship C7 speakers, the C6-650cw component woofer benefits from vast woofer design experience and advanced modeling systems of JL Audio.

Ideal for active systems, the C6-650cw component woofer features a proprietary cast alloy frame outfitted with our Elevated Frame Cooling™ technology and a DMA-optimized motor system to generate outstanding midbass impact with ultralow distortion.

Passive crossover networks are not included with C6 drivers, as they are designed for active systems. Instead, we recommend a high-quality tuning digital signal processor, such as the JL Audio TwK® DSP, or a VXi amplifier with built-in DSP, with a dedicated amplifier channel for each C6 loudspeaker in the system. Precise setup of equalization, delay and crossover filters will ensure optimal in-vehicle performance.

C6-650cw Component Woofer Features:
Forged and machined motor plates with DMA-optimized geometries to create linear motor force under power, leading to outstanding midbass impact, linearity and low distortion
Large diameter, linear profile, flat spider for linear compliance and outstanding excursion capability
Center cap designed to optimize the high-frequency response of the woofer for seamless transition to a tweeter s response
Oversized voice coil for extended power handling capability, minimizing thermal compression and distortion at higher listening levels
Cast alloy frame with our Elevated Frame Cooling feature
Includes fine mesh grille

Design Bandwidth:
With 48 dB/octave filters: 55 Hz-6 kHz
With 24 dB/octave filters: 65 Hz-6 kHz
With 12 dB/octave filters: 80 Hz-6 kHz

Component woofers are sold individually and include a plastic grille tray, one fine steel mesh grille and one electroformed JL Audio badge logo.


Dynamic Motor Analysis - DMA Optimized Motor

JL Audio's proprietary Dynamic Motor Analysis system is a powerful suite of FEA-based modeling systems, first developed by JL Audio in 1997 and refined over the years to scientifically address the issue of speaker motor linearity. This leads to vastly reduced distortion and faithfully reproduced transients... or put simply: tight, clean, articulate bass.

Elevated Frame Cooling

JL Audio's Elevated Frame Cooling design delivers cool air through slots directly above the top-plate to the voice coil of the speaker. This not only enhances power handling, but also sound quality by minimizing dynamic parameter shifts and power compression.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
