Reviews Of The 5 Best 5X7 Speakers

JBL GTO8629 Premium Review

5X7 car speakers reviewsJBL 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 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.

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.

  • Design :  3-Way

Polk Audio DB571 Review

Polk Audio DB571 5X7 speakers 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. 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″
  • Impedance : 4 Ohms

Polk Audio AA2571 Review

Polk Audio AA2571 5X7 speakers reviewThis 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.

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.

Polk Audio AA2571 Specifications
  • Size : 5″ X 7″ / 6″ X 8″
  • Design :  2-way
  • Sensitivity : 92 dB
  • Power Handling
    • Peak :  200 watts
    • RMS :   90 watts
  • Frequency range :  38 – 25,000 Hz
  • Top-mount depth :  2-5/8″
  • Impedance : 4 Ohms

JL Audio C2-570x Review

Best 5X7 Car SpeakersJL 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. 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

Infinity Reference 6832cf Review

Infinity Reference 6832cf 5X7 speakers ReviewWe’ve reviewed several Infinity car speakers on this site before, and the story hasn’t changed. Infinity produces quality speakers at a reasonable price.

Infinity Reference 6832cf speakers are the best selling 5X7 car speakers on the market. These budget-friendly speakers are quite popular and seem to be well-liked. They’re quite efficient and can handle a decent amount of power.

These speakers feature a Plus One+ Injection-Molded Polypropylene (IMPP) woofer cone supported by hi-roll rubber surround. The Plus One+ woofer design expands cone surface area so you enjoy fuller, deeper lows. They’re equipped with 1″ UniPivot edge-driven, textile dome tweeters designed to project smooth, clean highs.

The lack of bass is one of the most common complaints about these speakers. If you already have a subwoofer mounted in your vehicle, then you don’t have to bother yourself with bass, but in case you there’s no subwoofer, use some kind of sound deadening material (Dynamat Xtreme for example) in between the speaker and the car chassis for an improved clarity, loudness and bass response from your speakers.

Infinity Reference 6832cf Specifications
  • Size : 5″ X 7″ / 6″ X 8″
  • Design :  2-way
  • Sensitivity : 93 dB
  • Power Handling 
    • Peak :  180 watts
    • RMS  :   60 watts
  • Frequency range :  49 – 21,000 Hz
  • Top-mount depth :  2-3/8″
  • Impedance : 2-ohm

Infinity KAPPA 682.11cf Review

Infinity KAPPA 682.11cf 5X7 6X8 speakers reviewThis 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.

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″
  • Design :  2-way
  • Sensitivity : 94 dB
  • Power Handling
