C3 Convertible Component Systems
There are times when an installation calls for a separate woofer and tweeter and other times when a coaxial is the better approach. With the new Evolution® C3 Convertible Component Systems, the same product can be deployed in either configuration, delivering outstanding audio quality in each application.
C3's are all new from the ground up and deploy JL Audio's full suite of technology advancements and patents to deliver unsurpassed value, performance and reliability.
The C3 woofers are 100% new designs aimed at raising the bar for midbass performance, dynamic stability and fidelity of response.
C3 woofers feature oversized, 1.2-inch diameter woofer voice coils to deliver superior power handling, reduced dynamic compression and more distortion-free output. Long coil winding lengths create a very wide dynamic envelope in which linear behavior is maintained. JL Audio's patented Elevated Frame Cooling technology allows air to flow directly over the top-plate and onto the voice coil windings during operation. These features further reduce distortion and improve clean output capabilities.
Balancing the entire motor system is JL Audio's DMA-optimization process, in which we apply powerful computer modeling systems to refine the complex behavior of the motor system under power. (This is the same motor design approach that gives our subwoofer drivers their special edge.)
The C3 woofer cones have been carefully shaped to control response and reduce undesirable breakup characteristics. High-grade butyl rubber surrounds and Conex® spiders ensure years of reliable, high-fidelity performance.
In each C3 woofer design, the motor and moving assemblies are aligned and supported by an injection-molded composite basket (frames) that delivers exceptional rigidity while also permitting architectural features that aid in alignment during assembly. This ensures assembly precision and unit-to-unit consistency, which are critical to maintaining the C3's tight acoustic tolerances.
The C3 tweeter is a true, edge-driven 1-inch (25mm) silk dome that excels on or off axis and offers very smooth and flat frequency response to well beyond 20 kHz. Silk is an ideal tweeter diaphragm material thanks to its light weight, strength, inherently good damping characteristics and environmental stability. These benefits combine to deliver very good efficiency, smooth response and sparkling high frequency detail without the harshness common in many competitive products.
Driving this silk dome is a powerful motor using high-temperature grade neodymium and ferroluid-cooling for superior efficiency and long-term fidelity.
Each C3 tweeter is built onto a carrier that can be mounted with a simple twist into a flush or surface mount fixture (for separate mounting applications), or onto the woofer's pole piece, when used as a coaxial.
Each C3 System includes specifically-designed, true 2-way outboard crossovers, precisely optimized to deliver smooth, predictable in-car response.
The C3 crossover networks feature premium Mylar® capacitors, air-core inductors and precision resistors. All C3 crossover component parts are held to less than 5% tolerance. This attention to detail and parts quality combines to give you consistent performance at all power levels.
The design of the C3 crossover networks is simple in topology (1st order low-pass / 2nd order high-pass), but highly sophisticated in implementation. The networks offer adjustments for mid-range presence (three increments), plus four adjustable tweeter levels. This flexibility allows you (or your installer) to account for vehicle acoustics, tweeter placement as well subjective factors.
