Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Priced Per
Car Speakers are typically sold in pairs so you will receive 2 speakers for each speaker purchase on speakers marked "Priced Per Pair". If a speaker is marked "Priced Per Each" then the speaker is sold individually and each purchase you make will result in 1 speaker. High-powered tweeters, midrange and full-range pro audio for car speakers are typically sold per each speaker.
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
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 Size
Refers to the size of the tweeter. Typically, smaller tweeters produces less output with higher frequency response.
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
Woofer Surround
A speakers surround is part of the suspension system. The surround protects the cone and prevents it from being displaced as it flexes out from the basket. It is usually made of a durable material like treated foam or rubber in order to withstand the strenuous job of producing bass frequencies.
Rubber
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.

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"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches, required to contain the speaker.
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
4-15/16" x 4-15/16" 
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

Good for the money

October 6, 2011

Pros: Decent power handling and noticeable upgrade from factory speakers without costing a ton of money. Cons: Doesnt handle bass very well at all. Have a sub so wasnt a big issue but before the sub my factory speakers had more bass than these do. I would buy them again since I have a sub now. If I didn't I would be looking for another option.

Excellent

July 6, 2011

I have been very pleased with the performance of these speakers. The high and midrange response is great, enough to hurt you. The low end is good for a speaker of this size, I would add a sub to make it sound perfect if you like bass. I run these off of a $100 W******* head unit with a claimed 60 watts per channel (if you believe that) and they still perform great. I had them hooked to my stock system before, and they would easily handle full volume. Excellent speaker at any price, Sonic had the best deal. Oh, the grills that come with them are a waste of time if you use them for truck door speakers. No protection.

Alpine makes really good stuff and things...

July 3, 2011

The pair of Alpine SPS-600 6.5" speakers are perfect with the Alpine CDA-9886 stereo in my car. Wired straight-up, with no amplifiers, they can handle everything the CDA-9886 has to offer and that might be more than my ears can take.

Alpine SPS-600

May 25, 2011

If you want something that plays well I highly recommend the Alpine SPS-600. They are amazing speakers. They play well on MP3s, CD's, FM Radio and on USB. The only con is that they are not as great while playing AM radio stations. Overall if you want speakers and don't feel like paying a whole lot for the Alpine Type R's I will definitely reccomend these. Alpine is the only speakers I will ever allow in my car!!!

May 17, 2011

For the money this speaker can't be beat it sounds great playing off my Alpine CDA-105 radio, and it really shines when I hooked them up to a 4-channel it played the music so much better with so much detail, if I bought these speakers here I would have gotten two pair of speakers instead of one pair.

good value.

April 16, 2011

Bought 2 pairs of these 6 months ago, have them running on a Alpine MRP-F300. They get plenty loud to keep up with the 2 Type R's I have running on a Hifonics 1700.1. Pros: Cheap, get plenty loud, the highs are great. even on h/u power they still get loud Cons: When I bought the 2 pairs it was winter, I made the mistake of running my stereo at full tilt(have amp set with dmm so there was no clipping) while it was cold out. Well needless to say I blew one of the speakers, I never bothered to call Sonic for a exchange cause I blame myself for playing them at full tilt when its below zero also the mid's are not as crisp as I would want them to be, but a equalizer fixed that.

I would definitely recommend these speakers. I have them in the rear of my Toyota Sequoia. They handle mids/highs well. Not as good as the SPR-17Cs that I have in front for bass, but still a pretty good buy
