JBL GTO 609C component speaker handles 270 watts peak power (75 watts RMS). This much power makes for an ideal match to systems powered with head-unit or factory-amplifier power levels. Even better, the speaker matches many of the GTO Series amplifier combinations. As a result, it can keep up with systems that feature one or more subwoofers and satisfy high-fidelity audiophile listeners. And its great power-handling specifications also increase reliability over the lifetime of the speaker.
Product Features:
  • 25 – 270 watts suggested amplifier power range
    JBL engineers designed the GTO 609C component speaker to produce strong, clear sound from a head-unit or amplifier capable of delivering up to 270 watts of power. This makes the GTO 609C an ideal match to systems powered with head-unit or factory-amplifier power levels. Even better, the speaker matches many of the GTO Series amplifier combinations. As a result, it can keep up with systems that feature one or more subwoofers and satisfy high-fidelity audiophile listeners. And its great power-handling specifications also increase reliability over the lifetime of the speaker.
  • Patented Plus One woofer-cone technology
    The GTO 609C’s Plus One carbon-injected cones provide more overall speaker-cone area than other cones in its class. With an effective increase in cone area, the speaker radiates more air. Also, its carbon-injected cone material produces a lighter and stiffer cone. The result is a better low-frequency response and a greater ability to make those important musical notes that people often associate with larger speaker sizes.
  • Fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) frames
    The fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) frames used in the GTO 609C’s 6-1/2-inch (160-millimetre) woofer/midrange drivers resist warping even when you mount them on uneven surfaces. Their nonmagnetic carbon composite helps to control the magnet’s energy and deliver it to the voice coil instead of wasting it as heat. What’s more, the plastic doesn’t resonate. The result of this control is accurate sound in your car.
  • Three-ohm voice coils
    Three-ohm voice coils in the JBL GTO 609C compensate for the added resistance by thin factory-installed speaker wiring. They also provide more output than factory-installed speakers of the same class.
  • Vented magnet assemblies
    The JBL GTO 609C speakers feature vented magnet assemblies on the woofer/midrange driver to help cool the voice coil. Keeping the voice coil cool adds to increased reliability from greater power handling and helps eliminate power compression that can distort the speakers’ sound.
  • Frequency response up to 21kHz
    A wide frequency response that extends beyond 20kHz helps compensate for speaker-placement variations in your car and for human hearing deficiencies in the high-frequency spectrum above 15kHz. The result is that the JBL GTO 609C’s 3/4-inch (19-millimetre) component tweeters deliver the full-range frequency response that you associate with great sound.
  • High sensitivity (92dB@2.83V/1m)
    High sensitivity allows a wide range of power to provide great sound without overdriving the audio system. With a sensitivity of 92 decibels at 2.83 volts/1 metre, the JBL GTO 609C speaker achieves excellent volume and musicality with as little as 5 watts RMS. That means better overall performance with moderate power driving the speaker. And better performance makes the speakers an ideal replacement for factory speakers as well as for any aftermarket speaker installation.
  • Edge-driven, soft-dome tweeter diaphragms
    The edge-driven, soft-dome-tweeter design in the JBL GTO 609C’s 3/4-inch (19-millimetre) component tweeter increases power handling while reducing high-frequency distortion. Edge-driven tweeters also have better dispersion characteristics and allow a lower crossover frequency, which improves imaging. The result is better vocals and clarity in your music. There’s no sense having it loud if it doesn’t sound clean, too.
  • 12dB/octave passive crossovers
    A dedicated 12-decibel/octave passive crossover network in the component sets increases power handling and musical clarity in the JBL GTO 609C two-way component speakers. It provides protection for the tweeter and contoured filtering at the crossover point between the woofer and tweeter.
  • Speaker grilles and tweeter-mounting hardware
    The JBL GTO 609C two-way component speakers include attractive black-metal mesh grilles to protect the speakers whenever they’re mounted in a location requiring a grille. In addition, the tweeters have the patented I-Mount tweeter-mounting system that allows easy flush or surface mounting, giving you more installation options.

GTO609C is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gto is quality I purchased 2 pair of these for one of my car has a excellent quality sound, then I purchased the same set up for my other car. I used to have the gti crossovers and these are so close to that quality, I am a electronic freak and I love jbl they do make great speakers, after all they been here for long time,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hyvää ääntä kohtuullisella hinnalla. Ääni on hyvä. Kaiuttimien laatu vaikuttaa asialliselta. Passiivijakosuodin on hankalan kokoinen, ja vaikea piilottaa kojelaudan sisään. En koittanut millainen ääni on ilman twiittereitä, mutta luulen sen olevan kohtuullinen niinkin. Itse ratkaisin ongelman ottamalla jakosuotimen kotelon pois. Kaiuttimista paljon ääntä vähäisellä vahvistinteholla! (impedanssi 3ohm)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Oorpijn Ik heb deze set gekocht en sindsdien krijg ik oorpijn in de auto. Het geluid is schel en er zit totaal geen bas in. Het is dus een miskoop.

Asked by: cjcky73
Hi! Given the specifications of the speaker, what we can recommend is the Club 704 amplifier. It is a 4 channel car amplifier that has a Power Output, 70W RMS x 4 @ 4Ω, <1.0% THD+N

Can i use JBL GTO609c with stock stereo system of my car Honda Brio & without any AMP.

Asked by: Rajat_1991
These speakers can work with just 5 Watts of power so a factory unit is sufficient however check for seating as the magnets are large so it does not hinder the functioning of your pwoer windows

Gto 609c are 3ohm so in amp it will use 2ohm RMS or 4ohm RMS. How is club 704 for 2pairs of it.

Please clear it says 90w RMS on back of speaker and on specs it says RMS handling 5w-200w so which RMS should I consider while matching amp. And it is a 3ohm speaker so how i match an amp,should i see 4ohm or 2ohm.

Asked by: Mukul007
The GTO 609C can handle and average wattage of 75W but can still work with an amplifier powering it between 5W-200W. The Peak power handling is 270W and should not use an amp that has that kind of power as it can cause the speaker to get damaged. The amp should run on 4 ohms since the GTO has a true 4 ohm technology that allows it to run on a 4 ohm amplifier

Please suggest an amplifier, I have bought 2 pairs for my car. can it work on any 4ohm amp as it has 3ohm impedance. Please explain  it says 90w RMS and also 5w-200w RMS. And what is suggested amp power range 25w-270w.

Asked by: Mukul007
You can use the JBL GTR 7535 Amplifier for these speakers.As I can see here , The GTO 609C can handle and average wattage of 75W but can still work with an amplifier powering it between 5W-200W. The Peak power handling is 270W and should not use an amp that has that kind of power as it can cause the speaker to get damaged.

Hi ! The audio specs are ''Power Handling (RMS)5W - 200W'' . But is it per speaker ? I mean , 200w per channel ( left or right)? or is it divided by 2 ? ( 100w rms for the left channel and 100w for the right channel)

Asked by: AlexandreL
Thank you for your question, the power handling of the GTO609C is per speaker. Both of them (left and right) have a power handling of 5W-200W.

I'm purchased these speakers to replace the front speakers in my 07 Sequoia with the JBL premium sound and amp. I'm reading the amp system requires 2 OHM speakers and any other sounds bad, the 609c specs state 3 OHM, so will they work with my system?
