Speaker Specifications

Speaker Size
Refers to the size of the speaker measured in inches. Every vehicle has standard application sizes. Please use our vehicle fitment guide for your vehicle's specific speaker sizes if you do not know them.
6-1/2"
Design
The number of individual drivers in a car speaker. Speakers with 2 drivers are known as a 2-way, and 3 drivers are known as a 3-way. Component systems are often referred to as "separates" because the tweeter is not attached to the midwoofer (main speaker driver) and mounts separately in a location such as a door post. Component systems typically come with an external crossover so you can easily adjust the high and low frequencies sent to both the midwoofer and the tweeter. Center channel speakers are great for those looking to have surround sound in their vehicle.
2-way Component System
Tweeter Design
Designs such as cone, dome, semi-dome, balanced dome, and whizzer are most popular. Cone tweeters are simple, efficient and typically are the most reasonably priced. Dome tweeters are used in most home speakers, and provide a smoother and more accurate sound. Semi-dome design is one with a dome placed inside a cone. A Balanced dome driver is a semi-dome with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the driver. A whizzer tweeter is a separate tweeter cone driven by the voice coil of the woofer.
Dome
Tweeter Composition
Materials such as polypropylene, silk, cloth, and paper are the most common, where as many more recent tweeters are now manufactured with composites such as Aluminum, Titanium, Mylar, and other materials.

PEI is an acronym for "Polyetherimide" which is an amorphous, amber transparent, high-performance thermoplastic.

Silk
Woofer Composition
Lightweight woofer cone materials are essential for efficient operation. Poly cones produce exceptional sound and are sturdy against various changes in temperature. Paper cones are very efficient, and when treated for moisture resistance, will perform at a high level. Poly refers to polypropylene, which is thermoplastic or fibers that are polymers of propylene. IMPP refers to injection molded polypropylene, a commonly used process and material in speakers.
Polymer/Mica Composite
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
240 watts
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
80 watts
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
88 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
70 - 22000 Hz
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
4 ohms
Shallow Mount Installation
This means that the subwoofer/speaker is designed to be installed in areas that do not have a lot of space. Shallow mount subwoofers are typically found under a seat or behind the seat in some trucks.

Shallow mount speakers will typically have a mounting depth of 2" or less, while shallow mount subwoofers will typically have a mounting depth of 3" or less.

No
Top-Mount Depth
The depth when installed on top of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the bottom of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
2-1/4"
Speaker Grilles
A grating or screen of metal or plastic bars or wires, mounted in front of a speaker as protection. If yes, the speakers will include matching speaker grilles. If no, there are no grilles included.
Yes

June 22, 2011

The speakers are great!!! They easily fit in my GMC sierra 1500 ext. cab. They sound good for the money. I am not a big music person so I don't notice little differences between speakers but they are defiantly better than the stock speakers. I would recommend them to friends.

Great sound

March 4, 2011

I bought the Alpine SPS-600C for replacement of the front door mount speakers in my 2005 GMC Sierra Crew Cab along with the Alpine SPS-600's for the rear doors. They are both connected to a JVC KW-XR810 head unit powered by 2 JL Audio 2 channel 400 watt Amps. These speakers handle the power and sound great. Very crisp and clear, I'm hearing lyrics of songs I've listened to for years for the very first time. I highly recommend.

this is all you need!

February 21, 2011

my setup is front type s 6.5 components, rear 6x9 type r coax, 1 1243 type r sub in a sealed box with 2 powerbass xtreme amps. I absolutely love this set up. You really don't need anything more than these speakers when you're driving. My pb amp is putting 90 watts to all 4 channels and I can't even get it high enough to distort before my ears hurt because its so loud. Literally its like being in a club in my car with just the 4 speakers and the sub. you can hear me driving everywhere too. I listen to rock and rap and honestly they're worth the money. They dont have the most bass in the world, but honestly you don't want it when you have a sub in your car. The sub will overpower everything with bass so its pointless. These dont make me cry because the treble hurts my ears so much. Its so crisp and doesnt distort. Highly recommend I just wish the crossovers were adjustable...but then again I have an amp and a headunit that can adjust it so it doesnt matter really..

Awesome Speakers

February 11, 2011

Got to say alpine is some of the best if not the best out there. Have these for front and rear speakers in my rsx. Flush mounted the tweeters in the doors and rear seats. They are very clean on the midrange & up. Not too much of a bass speaker but that what subs are for IMO. Have them hooked up to an amp and they bring out the clarity. For the price u cant beat them.

December 13, 2010

Don't get me wrong these are good speakers but, The Type S more for songs with NO BASS, They do not make good bass, amped or off a deck, They are Great on highs and mids but No bass, If u dont got a Sub dont buy these, I have some Rockford Power series speakers now that cost a lot more but well worth it, They are way better on bass, highs, and mids, U dont even need a sub unless u just want that extra kick. These speakers are good if your on a budget way better than stock but go ahead and get good speakers and a amp, your ears will thank you.

Just dont know

November 16, 2010

Well I'm on my second pair. The first pair blew within ten minutes having them hooked up. They say there 75 watt RMS and I had about 30 running to them but they blew. And the second pair is working but not like I thought they would. I'm gonna leave him in for the winter then there out and gonna buy something else..I wouldn't recommend these to anyone and if your gonna buy a component set get one with a crossover and not the inline built in one like this model..it does a horrible job cutting frequencies.

For the money these speakers sound great. There is no included crossover, frequencies are controlled with capacitors, but still sounds pretty good. Tweeters can be a little harsh but if you have a good head unit you can dial them in fairly well. There are definitely better speakers out there but prob not at this price range.

Decent Speakers - easy to install

October 13, 2010

I installed these to replace the stock components in my Honda Element. I paired them with an Alpine PDX 4.100 and they sound great. You can get a decent amount of bass from the woofers and the tweeters have crisp highs. One great feature is that the crossover is a small plastic tube that you can zip tie almost anywhere. I like this idea a lot better than those bulky boxes. Deaden your doors and protect the woofers with some baffles and you can get some real decent sound.

Good Speakers

September 11, 2010

I bought these to replace the factory speakers in my 6th generation honda accord coupe 98-02.They sound much better than the cheap stock speakers that came and the car and compliment my two type r 12's nicely. Install wasn't too bad once I figured everything out. I had to cut some plastic out of the factory mount in the door and then used the supplied spacers and everything fit well. I mounted the tweeters in the factory dash location and they sound great there. I bought an amp for these but probably won't even install it they sound good off my Clarion CZ500. Oh yeah tweeters not harsh at all. Very pleased for the amount paid.

Great Speakers for 2001 Dodge Dakota Quad

September 5, 2010

I purchased these component speakers as replacements for my 2001 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab and they were a perfect fit. I took the truck to a large electronics retailer and they installed them in less than 45 minutes and they sound great even with the stock radio.

good product at amazing price.

August 24, 2010

i have these speakers in the front doors of a suzuki hatchback and the the sps-600's in the rear. the speakers themselves sound amazing, handle 70+ watts each with no distortion. the tweeters are by far louder and clearer than stock but seem to be a little harsh in the top. i reduced this by dropping treble and increasing mid in my systems eq and now sound great. just required some tweaking. sub will be necessary but in terms of final sq i would definitely recommend this product over anything else I've heard.

Never underestimate your high's!

August 2, 2010

I ordered this as a last piece for my complete setup in a 97 Honda Prelude. After spending about $1500 on a sub setup and Dynamat'ing the vehicle, I have to say that these made it sound 200% better without question! The highs really screamed and matched, even a little-overpowered two 12" Kickers in the rear. I would absolutely recommend these to anyone looking for that high-end power that's so easily overlooked when creating a system. The bass isn't everything - these will definitely make your high's compete well with any bass setup!
