    I did some sweeps with and without using some cheesy NVX V-series 5.5" woofers.

    From that little experiment, I recall that they would potentially benefit low-power, low excursion factory drivers by a notable margin.

    so If I was running my jbl doors off a pioneer headunit with no amp to the doors it would most likely help?

    I think that's the idea, but it does influence the driver as well - as demonstrated above. Most people who use them cut out the lower back portion & just use this as a drip guard.

    I dunno - maybe. I don't have the JBL system and have no experience with it. I will say that if you have any bass now, you may lose it with these. But if that's already missing, it will probably be an improvement.
