6.5 in. Two- Way High Performance Speakers
This is a brand we came across while doing some R&D for our own upcoming brand name speakers. At this point we're still a little cramped for space to bring in as many products as we need to create our own branded speakers and accessories. So we asked the factory we were dealing with if there were any other companies looking at the same type of products we were...and we came across JA Audio.
These products are from the same molds in which we were trying to design our models. This is the type of quality combination that we thought was missing from our current line-up of brands and models coming from the larger names that we carry.
JA Audio has a good balance of great sound at a lower price thru the use of more current materials and compact packaging.
We'd love to sell these for more money as the quality is there to compare to other more expensive brands

"This will be the video review for the JA Audio JAI6A. Here is how it comes packaged. Nice overall packaging. It's a good retail package. But we don't really need it since we are only selling on the internet. So, inside, as you'll open up, it's got two internal packs as well and we'll get into that in a bit.
So, we'll take a look into the box of the JAI6A. It comes with a template for a drawing on the wall and a paint plug if you wanted to paint the grill of this speaker. This goes inside the grill. Those are included and inside the box... as you pull it out... you got two master packs inside. So here you have your individually wrapped speakers. And as you'll see, they come pre-installed with the grills on. Everything has a finished look. And since these need to come out, if you look they come out pretty easy. You just take the dog ears and push them through and that pops the grill right of. And that exposes the screws which you'll need to do the install in the back. On the front you see, we've got a 6.5 inch woofer, aluminum cone, a butyl rubber surround which is a nice flexible material that lets the speaker extend itself very well. We've got a 1 inch, or 25 mm, aluminum tweeter that also pivots. Which you don't want to do. You'll have some phase problems as you point low frequencies and high frequencies in different directions. You'll kind of an echo sound in certain parts of the music or dialogs. So try to keep that just pointed straight out. You'll be okay. This also has a little flare to the tweeter. JBL started to incorporate that. They called it a wave guide. It helps to disperse the music a little bit nicer out of the walls. So you are getting a little more dispersion to the sides. Let's flip it over and what you'll see is a little bit over-build crossover. It's a 24 dB crossover. Really not required with the type of equipment that we've got here but it shows the dedication of these guys in making a good speaker. It's a really well designed crossover. The phase differences are all taken into account. So that's a nice, nice crossover.
It has two posts for wire connections which are unique. Most of the time you see spring clips on inexpensive ones. These are inexpensive but by no means cheap. So you just screw these and set your wire in and tighten it back down with your thumb. No tools required. 100 watts, 8 ohm driver.
So in summary of our speaker review here. The JAI6A is a 6.5 inch 2-way - meaning woofer and tweeter - in-wall speaker. It's an infinite baffle design. So it's meant to go into greater than 3 cubic feet, 5 cubic feet. It's got a 1 inch aluminum dome tweeter, a 6.5 inch diameter woofer. It does come with a pretty high-end crossover, 24 dB. Frequency response is from 50 Hz to 20,000 Hz. It's an 8 ohm speaker. Maximum power about 100 watts. It comes with a white aluminum grill which is good for the use outside. Although I wouldn't suggest to use it in a side wall. If you have to do an overhang, that's okay. Overall dimensions about 8 11/16 by a little over 12 inches. It's three inches deep. It will fit into any 2 x4 stud bay, no problem."
