JVC CS-ZX640 Speakers Review

JVC CS-ZX640 Speakers ReviewThe CS-ZX640 speakers are one of the best 6.5 car speakers that JVC has to offer. These 4-way coaxial speakers feature Carbon Mica 3D woofer cones, supported by single roll rubber surround built onto a steel stamped frame. They are equipped with Poly-Ether Imide Dome tweeters and super-tweeters which allows the speakers to cover higher frequencies.

The CS-ZX640 speakers can handle up to 50 watts of power on continuous basis. They feature 89 dB sensitivity rating and have a relatively wide frequency range. As with most JVC car speakers, the only downside we can reasonbaly think of is the lack of deep bass. I means these speakers will sound just fine. However, we wouldn’t recommend them to those of you who usually listen to bass heavy music.

JVC CS-J620 Speakers ReviewThis is going to be the cheapest pick of the lot by far. These speakers aren’t anything to write home about. They are outclassed by most car speakers we reviewed here. So if you’re on the lookout for a decent replacement for your factory-installed speakers, and you’re on a tight budget, the JVC CS-J620 speakers are a good cheap entry-level speakers worth considering.

The JVC CS-J620 speakers can handle up to 30 watts of power on continuous basis, and are rated for 92 dB sensitivity rating. Speakers with high sensitivity rating require less power. For example a pair of speakers featuring a sensitivity rating that’s 3 dB higher than another pair of speakers only needs half as much power to deliver the same amount of sound. In other words, this means that speakers with 92 dB only needs 50 watts to produce the same volume as a 89dB speaker using 100 watts.

These speakers sound crisp and clear for the price.However, if you’re a basshead looking for loud thump, then you should spend extra money on some other high-end speakers.

Final Thoughts

As you might have already noticed, JVC car speakers aren’t by any means the most sophisticated car speakers out there. However, they make a great replacement for factory-installed speakers especially considering their fairly low price tag.
