Priced Per Pair

Alpine products are warranted solely by Sonic Electronix, Inc. under the same period and terms as the original Alpine warranty. Sonic Electronix is not an Authorized Alpine Dealer and Alpine requires all merchandise purchased by Sonic Electronix customers to be returned solely to Sonic Electronix. Alpine products are also covered by our Standard Return Policy for returns on exchanges or refunds within 30 days from the date of purchase.

Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Type-E (Alpine)
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.
Pair
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" x 9"
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 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.
Polypropylene
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.
300 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.
75 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".
91 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).
65 - 18,000 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.
3"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5-15/16 x 8-3/4 
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

These speakers please me!

January 11, 2012

I chose these speakers to replace the OEM in my Dodge Caravan, first with a pair in the doors. This allowed me to fade front to rear and compare the new with the old. The OEM sounded sorta ok, but they didn't pull me into the music. Actually my attention tended to drift off into my own thoughts. The experience through the Alpine SPE-6090 was just the opposite. I become engaged in the flow of the music. There is good balance in the frequency response and much detail that I wasn't getting through the original speakers. I'm really pleased. So pleased that I also replaced the OEM in the rear side panels with the same Alpines. Perhaps this review will take on more meaning if I tell something of myself. I have sung in symphony choruses for much of my life. This places me in close proximity to instruments played in a concert setting. These Alpine speakers do a good job of getting the tonal colors right. When listening to symphonic music I can always tell which of the various instruments are performing, sorting out the oboe and the English horn, for example. Are these good rock speakers? Look to others for advice there. But I like these for classical, jazz and folk. After six months experience I'm very satisfied with my choice of these Alpine speakers. As for the five star rating system. My rating is based on my satisfaction, not on any comparison to other speakers that are available. I haven't heard them.

Good sounding speaker, all around.

January 15, 2014

I don't usually write reviews on anything... But I installed these in the front doors of my 2007 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab, and they definitely perform quite well... They blew the stock door speakers away which had a nasty "wobble" in them at mid-high volumes. Now, I listen to a mix of music, from indie, to metal, to punk, rap, and even a little dubstep. And I can tell anyone this, these are door speakers... Not subwoofers. That much is cut and dry.. Now I do love bass, and honestly, it may just be from an improper installation why some reviewers say the lows are terrible. Or maybe they have higher expectations and just want BASS and rumble in their vehicles.. But as a fair-priced door speaker... These are quite well. I listened to tons of speakers when trying to find the right all-around speakers to satisfy all of my musical desires, and these were just it. They have great mids and highs, that don't overpower your ears, making you want to cringe and squint your eyes, and enough bass in them *when turned up* to even give a little bit of a rumble and feeling out. Don't expect a competition speakers that will blow a piece of paper in half, or the bass to even rattle your center rear-view mirror *though when sitting steady and with the right setup it kind of does mildly which surprised me*. But you cannn however expect a good product and all around speaker. These compare quite well to the Fosgate setup I had in my '06 Sentra. Turn them up a bit, and you'll drown out a fair bit of life's worries, and you can just enjoy yourself and your music. If you want added bass, then get a sub. I plan to at a later time, because realistically, that's what the sub was made for. Your lows, thumps, and bumps. I have seen too many reviews stating these aren't good speakers, or the lows aren't good, so on and so forth. So hopefully I can maybe bring in a little realism and honesty to the whole scene. All I'm trying to say is, if you want a reasonably priced, fair speaker, with clear sound and a nice mix of mids, highs, and even some lows, all without surrendering clarity and distorting the speaker, then these I would highly recommend. Hopefully this review will have a positive impact on anyone considering these as an upgrade for their vehicles in the future...

Alpine SPE-6090

December 10, 2013

Alright, im going to shoot this straight because i like to have my music loud and i like it to bump. the bass on these leaves some to be desired. not up to par with what alpine should be putting out. and after a few weeks of playing these loud enough to get good solid bass out of them with my expensive headunit, these were all but blown, within the first few days they started to rattle and were not sounding great. bottom line if you want some powerful alpines to deliver that hear it outside the car bass bump, dont get these, buy the more top of the line alpines.

Awesome Speaks

February 14, 2013

These speaks are great. I got these for my senior lounge at high school. Two of them in sonic's enclosures fill the room with sound. Bass response is awesome, vibrant and loud. the treble is very accurate and clear. Don't really like the plastic baskets tho it makes them loose integrity.

September 27, 2012

Great fit, finish and functionality as expected by Alpine. Bought these as a replacement speaker for the rear deck in my girlfriends 2005 Pontiac G6. More than pleased with the output and improved sound quality over the factory speakers. Really satisfied considering these are Alpine's entry level speakers.

Amazing Speakers!!! WOW!!

September 8, 2012

I purchased these speakers after reading great reviews on SE. I installed these in my impala powered by a 2ch Eclipse amp(70RMSx2 @ 4ohms) and I, nor anyone else who I let hear these can come to realization that I only have one set of 6x9's! These speakers sound beyond incredible for the price! I wish I had room for more because I would order another set ASAP!! The BASS,MIDS, and HIGHS that these speakers produce is simply JAW DROPPING!! Everytime I start my car and turn the radio on I SMILE so hard because I still cant believe it!! You will not regret buying these ALPINE 6x9's!! Thanks Sonic Electronix, you are my HERO!

Amazing speakers

July 5, 2012

I purchased these for my rear deck and have them at 60W RMS. OMG these things sound great for the price. They definitively sound better than the more expensive set of kickers in my front doors ( which i'm thinking about replacing with Type R's). Mids are fantastic, highs are just right, and the bass these things make is just insane, it feels like i have a 10" sub in my trunk, which I don't ... What's even better is Kicker didn't have the nice clips on the terminals and these do, all you have to do if you amp them is slip on the clips and connect the other side to the amp and your done.

Great speakers for a great price!!! Thanks Sonic

July 21, 2011

Im not a speaker expert, but i have bought a lot of small speakers over the years. I personally find that you can't ever go wrong with alpine products. Crisp & Clear sound that does not break up if installed correctly. I purchased these speakers for my stock Alpine sterio 4X50 watts per channel and they sound Awesome. Price was very reasonable worth every penny. Shipping was free & fast!
