Best 5X7 Car Speakers

Let’s face it. OEM car speakers leave a lot to be desired. Although some are made from durable materials and can last for a long time, they weren’t exactly built for performance. This means that, if you want to listen to higher quality music on your daily drive, your only option is to spend more money to upgrade your car’s audio system.  

 5X7 car speakers are some of the most popular aftermarket speaker upgrades, and for a good reason -- these speakers offer fuller and better quality sound with minimal distortion at an affordable price point without compromising durability.   

Paired with a good amplifier and car stereo, 5X7 Car Speakers will transform the way you listen to music on your everyday drive. But even if you don’t end up buying a new amplifier and you’re stuck with your stock car stereo, installing 5X7 Car Speakers can still make a whole lot of difference, which is exactly why we’re here today.   

Versatile and pretty much mountable anywhere and everywhere, we’ve decided to round up the best 5X7 Car Speakers on the market today.

JBL is one of the most serious contenders in the car audio industry. Their GTO series speakers are some of the best selling car speakers on the market. They're very well-engineered and sound quite well, and most importantly, they're reasonably priced.

The JBL GTO8629 are some of the best 5X7 car speakers out there. These speakers can also fit perfectly 6"x8" enclosures.

They feature carbon-injected Plus One™ woofer cones with butyl rubber surrounds.

The "Plus One" woofer cone design incorporates more surface area than a standard size cone, contributing to greater efficiency and better low-frequency response.

JBL GTO8629

These 3-way speakers are equipped with Edge-driven soft dome tweeters with UniPivot™ design which allows you to swivel and aim the tweeters towards your ears, giving you a more detailed soundstage. These dome tweeters have an adjustable level control which you can use to fine-tune tweeter's sound output.

JBL GTO8629 speakers are rated for a sensitivity rating of 93 dB. They can handle up to 60 watts of power on continuous basis. We've come across a ton of you who have installed and loved these speakers. The GTO8629 speakers sound-much fuller, crispier, and deliver a well-balanced, clear sound output.

As for the downsides, it's really difficult to think of any. If anything, I'd say that the GTO8629's frequency range is a bit narrow. Therefore, the bass won't sound as full as with speakers which can reach lower frequencies. The mids and highs are however where these speakers really shine.

JBL GTO8629 Specifications

  • Size : 5" X 7" / 6" X 8"
  • Design :  3-Way
  • Sensitivity : 93 dB
  • Power Handling 
    • Peak  :  180 watts
    • RMS :    60 watts
  • Frequency range :  49 - 21,000 Hz
  • Top-mount depth :  2-3/16"
  • Impedance : 3 Ohms

PROS

  • Plus One” woofer cone design for better efficiency and low-frequency response 
  • Sounds even better when amplified 
  • UniPivot™ design creates an incredibly detailed sound stage 

CONS

  • Narrow frequency range leaves bass feeling under powered 

Polk Audio is another top-rated car speaker brand. They've made a name for themselves in this industry. Polk Audio speakers - particularly dB series - are quite popular and seem to be well-liked, and that's no coincidence. These marine certified speakers are very well-built and sound excellent, and all at an affordable price.

The Polk Audio DB571 speakers can fit both 5" X 7" and 6" X 8" car speakers enclosures. They feature polymer/mica composite woofers supported by heavy-duty rubber surrounds.

The liquid-cooled 3/4" silk/polymer dome tweeters that these speakers are equipped with use powerful Neodymium magnets for clear, precise and detailed highs.

Polk Audio DB571

 Additionally, the built-in two-way crossovers ensure that the right frequencies go to the appropriate driver - lows to the woofers, highs to the tweeters and mids to the midrange - for a smooth, natural sound.

The DB571 speakers are quite efficient. They're rated for 93 dB and can handle up to 60 watts RMS. So, whether you've got a factory-installed or an aftermarket car stereo, these efficient speakers will sound great.

In terms of sound quality, the DB571 speakers sound great. The highs and mids are clearer and crisper, but if you're a basshead looking for boomy bass speakers then you should look at other options, unless you already have a subwoofer in place.

Polk Audio DB571 Specifications

  • Size : 5" X 7" / 6" X 8"
  • Design :  2-way
  • Sensitivity : 93 dB
  • Power Handling 
    • Peak  :  180 watts
    • RMS  :   60 watts
  • Frequency range :  52 - 22,000 Hz
  • Top-mount depth :  1-3/4"

PROS

  • Marine certified for boat use and applications 
  • Heavy-duty rubber surrounds for added sealing and durability
  • Built-in two-way crossovers 
  • Equipped with Neodymium magnets

CONS

  • Underpowered bass

  • 5 inches x 7 inches 2 way Speakers (Marine Certified)
  • Power Handling: Peak: 360 watts per pair / 180 watts each & RMS: 120 watts per pair / 60 watts each
  • Dynamic Balance polymer/mica composite mineral filled cone is stiff yet lightweight for big sound and little distortion
  • 19mm liquid cooled silk/polymer composite dome tweeter with neodymium magnet for clear and detailed highs
  • Multi hole mounting pattern and shallow depth for easy drop in installations in most cars

This is another great pair of speakers from Polk Audio. These speakers are twice the price of the speakers we included above (DB571). If you believe in "you get what you pay for", the Polk Audio AA2571 speakers proves that axiom right.

These ultra-high-performance 5X7 speakers feature a relatively wide frequency range. They can reach as low as 38 Hz, which is a significant improvement over the dB series 5X7 speakers with only 52 Hz - 22,000 Hz frequency range.

The Polk Audio AA2571 speakers are very efficient and can handle even much wattage (90 watts) on continuous basis.

With that in mind, these speakers will sound great running off of a factory-installed head unit, but they'll truly make a day and night difference when hooked up to an aftermarket car stereo or an external amplifier.

Polk Audio AA2571

The built-in crossover perfectly splits the frequency signals to give them the outstanding crisp sound that makes you want to turn it up even louder. So, if you don't mind shelling out a few extra bucks, we highly recommend these speakers.

  • Size : 5" X 7" / 6" X 8"
  • Design :  2-way

  • Equipped with Neodymium magnets 
  • Woven Glass Fiber Composite Cones

  • Expected distortion when driven by aftermarket amplifiers 
  • Not as much value as you’d expect for its price

JL Audio is a brand we haven't come across very much at all, but we were quite pleasantly overwhelmed when we did. They offer some great car speakers.

The JL Audio C2-570x speakers feature rigid polypropylene woofer cones that can handle a decent wattage. The 3/4" silk dome tweeters serve up smooth-sounding highs, on and off axis.

The narrow frequency range of "53 Hz - 22 kHz" is one of the main complaints about these speakers. While most 5X7 car speakers at this price range can reach lows of 40 Hz and highs of 25 kHz, the C2-570x speakers are stuck at only 53 Hz for the lows and 22 kHz. 

JL Audio C2-570x

To the most seasoned audiophiles, the narrower frequency range simply won't feel as lively.

Don't get me wrong, JL Audio C2-570x are some of the Best 5X7 car speakers on the market. We've across so many folks who have mounted these speakers in their vehicles and swear by them. If properly powered, the C2-570x speakers can really make a difference, particularly in terms of highs and treble.

JL Audio C2-570x Specifications

  • Size : 5" X 7" / 6" X 8"
  • Design :  2-way
  • Sensitivity : 90 dB
  • Power Handling
    • Peak :  225 watts
    • RMS :   60 watts
  • Frequency range :  53 - 22,000 Hz
  • Top-mount depth :  2-1/2"
  • Impedance : 4 Ohm

PROS

  • Rigid polypropylene woofer cones 
  • Silk dome tweeters
  • Adjustable crossovers 

CONS

  • Expensive 
  • Narrow frequency range is a bit lacking in punch

When it comes to affordable and high-value products, it’d be very remiss of you if you didn’t at least give Rockford Fosgate a chance.  

The ​Rockford Fosgate P1572 Punch, in particular, is an incredibly well-priced 5 x 7 car speaker system.

It’s designed to offer a substantial upgrade for a car’s factory audio system without necessarily costing you much, as it comes at an attractive price point and is compatible with most stock mounting slots.   

The “Flex Fit” basket design is mainly responsible for making sure that the Punch P1572’s oval frame can fit pretty much anywhere factory speakers can.

The injection molded cone is also made out of the lightweight material polypropylene and is filled with minerals to ensure durability without adding too much heft to it. It’s also equipped with Butyl rubber surroundings for added shock absorption. This helps extend the life of the Fosgate P1572 while also offering slight improvements in the quality of sound.  

Housed inside the P1572 is an Integrated Concealed Crossover, as well as a built-in PEI tweeter. The hidden crossover helps add to the ease of installation of the P1572 while also creating a clean look. Also, this kind of arrangement, where the only thing you need to install separately are the tweeters, helps protect the drivers at higher volumes.   

Finally, in terms of efficiency, then Fosgate P1572 has a continuously power handling rating of 60 watts. Add the 89dB sensitivity rating and you’ve got a speaker that offers an ideal mix of sound quality and quality.

This is what you can get if you willing to shell out a few extra dollars. Infinity Kappa 5X7 car speakers are twice the price of Reference 5X7 speakers. These speakers are worth every penny. So, what makes the difference between Infinity Kappa series speakers and Infinity Reference speakers?

Well, Infinity Reference speakers are designed to be a cheap replacement for factory-installed speakers. They're above par speakers with decent sound quality.

Infinity KAPPA speakers on the other hand are built to improve on Reference speaker's flaws, particularly the frequency response which is extended to reach 40 Hz instead of just 49 Hz as with Infinity Reference 6832cf speakers.

Infinity KAPPA 682.11cf

The Infinity KAPPA 682.11cf speakers are very efficient. They have a sensitivity rating of 94 dB, and can handle up to 100 watts of power on continuous basis. That's a significant improvement over their counterparts Reference speakers.

Infinity KAPPA 682.11cf Specifications

  • Size : 5" X 7" / 6" X 8"

If you’re looking for a plug-and-play upgrade to your car’s stock stereo system, the Pyle PL537BL is a good choice.

Right out of the box, the PL573BL comes complete with everything you need to install it. This includes the grilles, wires, and even the mounting hardware.

But don’t let the ease of installation and affordable price fool you, because the PL537BL comes with high-quality components as well.

Chief among these is the Butyl rubber surround, poly-injected cones, and 1-inch ASV voice coil. These three combine to protect the speakers while also enabling it to produce fuller and clearer sound.

Pyle PL63BL

The PL537BL was also designed to to use a 20-ounce neodymium magnet for maximum efficiency. The very same structure also allows it to prove 150 watts RMS power (300 watts at peak) for just the right amount of power.

On top of this all, the PL537BL has a sensitivity rating of 90dB.

Even though this is not the highest on our round-up, it’s high enough to outperform most of its competition and guarantees minimal audio distortion even if and when you max out the volume.

Silk dome speakers are known for their smooth audio quality, and the CT Sounds Tropo does not disappoint.

Competitively priced -- the CT Sounds Tropo comes with far more features than you’d expect in a mid-level product -- this 5 x 7 speakers is a bargain, especially when you consider its glass fiber construction cones and NBR surround rubbers.

This is also a full-range speaker set so you won’t be needing pretty much anything else outside of it.

Perhaps the only issue with the CT Sounds Tropo is that it’s far more expensive than most would expect to pay for as far as 5 x 7 speakers go.

Featuring high-grade built-in crossovers, a dual fiberglass structure woofer cone, and a butyl rubber surround, all of which are encased in a steel chassis, the 570AC was built to deliver quality sound anywhere and everywhere regardless of conditions.

The clear and deep bass of the 570AC is also surprisingly rare among 5 x 7 car speakers.

Not to mention, its diminutive size belies just how much audio it can provide you.

Finally, the 570AC is actually very easy to install.

FOCAL 570AC

The only issue you’re going to encounter with the 570AC is its oval shape and the lack of grilles. Outside of these two glaring issues, you’ll have a hard time finding anything else wrong with the 570AC.
