Add stronger rear sway bar, APR stage III pac...  Great handling with S-line package. Good power with potential for over 300HP with Modifications.

Saw a great review of this also at review/ and agreed with a majority of what it said. Looks good, but looks can be deceiving... The audi a3 is unreliable, the dsg gearbox is juicy and the overall performance is poor.

This is the second A3 Sportback I have had from new - the first being the 140bhp 2 litre diesel.

component systems owners manual
THANK YOU for purchasing a JBL Power Series automotive loudspeaker component system. Weve organized this manual to make your installation as simple and trouble-free as possible. Please read it thoroughly before proceeding. Remember to keep your sales receipt and this manual in a safe place so both are available for future reference.


ABOUT THESE INSTRUCTIONS Installation of automotive stereo components can require extensive experience with a variety of mechanical and electrical procedures. Although these instructions explain how to install Power Series Component Systems in a general sense, they do not show the exact installation methods for your particular vehicle. If you do not feel you have the experience, do not attempt the installation yourself, but instead ask your authorized JBL car audio dealer about professional installation options. LOUD MUSIC AND HEARING Playing loud music in an automobile can hinder your ability to hear traffic, as well as permanently damage your hearing. The maximum volume levels achievable with JBL speakers, combined with high power amplification, may exceed safe levels for extended listening. We recommend using low volume levels when driving. JBL accepts no liability for hearing loss, bodily injury or property damage as a result of use or misuse of this product. REAR DECK PRECAUTION In some cars, fuel tanks may be located directly beneath the rear deck. Before installation, make sure there is adequate speaker basket clearance before considering this location! ABOUT THE CONTENTS The Power Series Component System includes: 5-14" or 6-12" or 165mm woofer Grille and mounting adapter(s) 1" tweeter with surface/flush I-Mount (patent no. 5,859,917) kits Crossover network with mounting screws NOTE: The supplied crossover network is designed to work with the above-listed transducers. Do not substitute another crossover network or use other speakers when connecting the system (see Figure 7A). INSTALLATION TIPS Always wear protective eyewear when using any tools. Turn off all audio components and other electrical devices before you start. Disconnect the () negative lead from your vehicles battery. Keep speakers in their package until final installation. When moving a speaker, always rest it with the cone or dome facing up. Never use force to install any speaker. Check clearances on both sides of a planned mounting surface before drilling any holes or installing any screws. Remember that the screws can extend behind the surface. At the installation sites, locate and make a note of all fuel lines, hydraulic brake lines, vacuum lines and electrical wiring. Use extreme caution when cutting or drilling in and around these areas. Before drilling or cutting holes, use a utility knife to remove unwanted fabric or vinyl, to keep material from snagging in a drill bit or saw. For door installations, check the clearance with the windows throughout the range of the windows travel, and verify that a mounted speaker will not interfere with the window crank or power window mechanism. If mounting speakers elsewhere, check for clearance around rear deck torsion bars, glove box or other structural elements. Do not mount speakers where they will get wet. If possible, select a mounting site for the crossover network that is near the speakers and provides easy access for connections.

Select an appropriate adapter ring and secure it to the vehicle using the sheet-metal screws provided, then attach the speaker to the ring with the machine screws. Figure 2.

Open the crossover housing by firmly squeezing the sides of the top half and lifting it away from the bottom. Using screws or a wire tie, mount the crossover using the holes provided. Observing proper polarity, connect the speakers and amplifier as shown in Figures 8A and 8B. Replace the cover when you are finished making the connections and adjustments (see following section). Figure 8A. Wiring connections on the crosssover network (shown with cover on). The Power Series component crossover features a tweeter-level adjustment. The tweeter level may be set to 0dB (flat response), or it may be attenuated by approximately 3dB to suit the listeners preference. The factory default position is 0dB; if this is the desired setting, it is not necessary to make any changes. If a reduced tweeter output level is desired, carefully remove the small plastic jumper from the pins marked 0dB and place it across the two pins marked 3dB (refer to drawings below).


1. Slide screw up or down to adjust tweeter angle.

Technical specifications

Full description

P650C is a 6-1/2" two way component system. New HCL cone material consists of two woven glass fiber layers with an epoxy-coated Nomex honeycomb core. This cone delivers on what is claimed by many and achieved by few. It is exceptionally stiff, yet lightweight. The benefits of which are increased efficiency, exceptional midrange clarity and lower distortion at high output levels. The P650c's tweeter features JBL's I-mount tweeter mounting system, which allows for precise imaging and easy installation. Pure-titanium edge-driven dome tweeters are not commonly used miniature cone tweeters, but full edge-driven domes like those found in high-end home audio loudspeakers. The benefits of this full edge-driven topology are reduced distortion at high output levels and superior integration with the mid/woofer. The P650c comes equipped with a computer-optimized voice-matched passive crossover that has been voice-matched to ensure optimum imaging, clarity and detail. The P650c's mid/woofer uses a cone with more surface area than competing models of the same size. The benefit is increased bass output and increased efficiency. The P650c mid/woofer features a voice coil larger than the one found on competing models of the same size. This larger voice coil increases power handling while minimizing distortion. The spider integrated tinsel leads greatly enhance reliability and eliminate audible tinsel lead slap.
