JBL® GTO LOUDSPEAKERS OPTIMIZE PERFORMANCE IN ANY CAR AUDIO SYSTEM, FROM MILD TO WILD|
WOODBURY, N.Y. (April 11, 2006) The JBL series of Grand Touring® Loudspeakers (GTO) has long been touted for delivering superb car audio performance. The next-generation GTO speakers offer an even higher level of power and precision for any application, from the consumer looking to upgrade a factory system to the hobbyist building a world-class competition ride.
Each GTO model boasts more cone area than competitors models, thanks to JBLs patent-pending Plus One woofer cones. This results in enhanced efficiency and better bass output. GTO speakers are also built to provide 2-ohm impedance, extracting every bit of power from any amplifier designed to increase power when driving 2 ohms.
More cone area, more power, enhanced efficiency and smoother sound this is an unbeatable combo of features only available from JBL, said Christopher M. Dragon, director of brand marketing, JBL Mobile Systems. JBL has always offered a car audio solution to appeal to a variety of consumers, but the next-generation GTO speakers take it to the next level.
Other unique features offered in these new GTO loudspeakers include:
My-Ti Edge-Driven Tweeters (Mylar®/titanium composite) GTO speakers are smooth-sounding, no matter how loud they play, thanks to JBLs new My-Ti tweeters. Stiff, light and extremely efficient, these tweeters deliver high-frequency extension of titanium domes with the damping of composite diaphragms.
One-inch, edge-driven domes on select models provide more heat-dissipating surface area for higher power handling, making lower crossover frequency possible.
Tweeter-Level Control Offers easy adjustment of tweeter level even in coaxial and select three-way models, a feature typically reserved for component systems or speakers with outboard networks.
Unipoint Rotating Tweeter The tweeter, mounted at a 15-degree angle, can be rotated 350 degrees to point at the listening position. In cases where speakers are mounted in off-axis factory locations, this rotating tweeter allows for a more uniform high-frequency response between left and right channels.
Built-In Crossovers Integrated high- and low-pass filters in select models provide a smoother transition between midrange and tweeter.
Low-Q Design Provides improved bass extension and better transient response in infinite baffle applications (doors and rear package tray).
Intermount III All 6-1/2-inch models offer this unique mounting system, allowing for installation in nearly all 6-inch factory locations, without requiring additional adapters or kits.
Shallow I-Mount (patent no. 5,859,917) New I-Mount tweeter- mounting system requires less space behind the mounting surface.
Starfish Provides easy tweeter mounting in factory tweeter locations and behind factory grilles. Mounting tabs make customization easier.
