The materials are lightweight and of high quality strenght and are constructed using JBL’s Edge-Driven, Mylar-Titanium technology to ensure a powerfull yet clear sound.

Some of the Standout Features

  • Built-in Crossover Networks – Most 6×9 speakers make use of bass blockers to retain a more effective high sound within the tweeters. The JBL GTO938 makes use of a built-in crossover network that makes use of advanced High and Low Pass Filters. The low pass filters redirect the mids and lows to the woofer and the midrange tweeter while the high pass filter pushes the treble through to the super tweeter
  • True 4-Ohm Topology – The JBL GTO938 6×9 speakers makes use of low impedance speaker voice coils to extract more power from the amp which in turn creates a more powerfull performance. The speakers are compatible with factory or aftermarket car stereos. Most factory radios are set to work with 2-ohm speakers. But the JBL’s will perform better with its 4-Ohm technoligy because it will draw less power from the unit whilst playing a much more powerful sound.
  • Plus One Cone – The JBL GTO938 6×9 speakers makes use of the companies Plus One Technology which gives the speakers more cone surface space than its rivals. The speakers will be able to produce better sounding bass given the extra surface space.
