JL have 5 ranges of loudspeakers. The base range is the TR series, then comes C2, C3 and C5, followed by the reference ZR speakers.
We recommend people start with a minimum of the C2 series, and if possible move up to the C3 series for their front speakers. JL C5 speakers work wonderfully when amplified and when we add Dynamat and are a great step-up from the C3 if budget allows. ZR are for true audiophiles, but of course are stunning JL speakers.

We always tell people to concentrate on the front speakers in the car in terms of budget allocation. This is for a number of reasons, partially because when you listen to live music it, the vocals and mid range comes from in front of you (you can’t tell where the bass comes from really), and of course because you are sat it the front of the car.
We like the C3-650 as speaker, it is a “convertible” speaker and can be configured as a COAX or a Component system.
