Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Type-R (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.
6-1/2"
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.
Hybrid-fiber pulp
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.
330 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.
110 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).
65 - 29000 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.
2-3/8"
Bottom-Mount Depth
The depth when installed from the bottom of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the top of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
2-1/2"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
5-3/8" x 5-3/8" 
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

alpine spr60c

May 19, 2014

These speakers sound really good. I am running them off a power acoustic ps800 that puts out about 150 watts rms. The speakers handle it with ease. They have great minds and highs. You can hear every detail. For lows I have a single swr10d4 that is 1000 watts rms being pushed by a Hifonics Brutus BRX 1600.1D and fine tuned with a clarion eqs746 equalizer. Needless to say my system sounds awesome. I highly recommend the spr60c component speakers. I don't know of any cons about these speakers. If you want good clear sound at a fantastic price then buy these from SONIC ELECTRONIX you will be pleased. Thanks Sonic.

Good sound at a reasonable price

December 7, 2013

I went from a set of Infinity Kappa Perfect 6.1s which were ear bleedingly bright. They Kappas were so harsh both my wife and I couldn't even listen to them (after 5 minutes we were in pain). The Kappas were twice the cost of these Alpines.

These Alpines provide a nice overall smooth sound. They are a little lacking on the mid-bass, but I have the rears set as subs so it is not an issue in the least. We really enjoy these.

Sound Great. Powered by NVX JAD800.4. They have a decent amount of midbass too. The tweeters arent harsh to me. I also have the cross over set at 0. So sound fine. Tweeters swivel which is good. The 6x8 brackets that came with them were easy for install. Crossovers are tiny and easy to hide as well.

Good value on upgrade

October 28, 2013

Both the site and product was recommended to me by my security/audio installer. This speaker with tweeter set is a nice entry level upgrade compared to the stock counter parts. The sound is a lot clearer and louder at a lower volume setting. Now music and navigation commands are audible with the top down.

What my stereo has been missing!

June 2, 2012

I just installed these in my 06 F150. They can can be made to fit with a little trimming of the door pockets and using the included adapters. I was running some Kicker coaxial's in the front and difference is amazing! With the Kickers I would get some listening fatigue after some time and these can stay cranking! The mid's are exactly what I had been longing for! With the others the tweeters seemed to be too harsh and drown out any mid bass I might have been getting. Still have the Kickers, but they have been delegated to the back doors on the smaller amp. Giving the Alpines 100W each side and they sound wonderful!!!

Alpine SPR-60C

August 15, 2012

I've had them for about a week, powered by a Soundstream Reference 500SX, 250W x 2, at 4 ohms. At first they were VERY bright, but about a week later, the tweeters are finally starting the break in a little, and a lot of the harshness is now gone. No big deal, I have no reduction on the tweeters at all right now, and the "crossovers" that came with them have 3 levels of reduction for the tweeters.

I mounted them on 2 stacked 3/4" thick MDF rings, with a foam baffle at the back, and polyfill stuffed behind the woofers.

Very happy with them. Obviously a huge improvement over the "premium" system that came with the car.

Way more bass than Alpines have been known for in this size of speaker, i.e. compared to the SPR-17C. Much more oomph with the 60Cs. Same crystal clear mids and uppers. Definitely shows off really high bit rate music.

Since I have not been running them very long, I cannot really accurately assess durability, but previous Alpine speakers have proven to be durable barring user error.

Excellent Speakers

September 24, 2011

Im very impressed with these speakers. Ive been toying with about 5 different sets over the last 4-5 months, and I have finally found something I am happy with. Theyre rated at 110 rms, but I am pushing 160 to them. They are more than happy with anything you can throw at them. When I first threw them in I adjusted the gain on the amp like you would with any new purchase - but get this: they did not distort at all. I could not hear my brother sitting in the car with me regardless how loud we were screaming at each other.

Let me tell you more about these bad boys.

The highs are not as crystal clear as I have found with other sets ive toyed with. I think kappas have more clear tweeters, but the kappa tweeter's metallic highs will cause severe listening fatigue. On the other hand, I can listen to these puppies at retarded volume levels all day long. I found that -2 to -4 db on the crossover is in the best listening range. -2 provides crisp highs but might be over powering with certain genres. -4 is not as crisp, but still provides excellent detail.

Now, Ive found that spr-60c's LOVE power. I originally ran 50 rms to them and they were decent. I was not disappointed at all. Midbass was alright, but I felt they needed a little more. 110 extra RMS later, I have a smile ear to ear from these guys. The 6.5 woofers have AMAZING midbass. Maybe it was the quality of the lossless tracks I was testing this set with, but I am now on a mission to deaden every panel possible trying to reduce vibrations on the doors. It's been a long time since I've felt this much bass at my legs.

Between a single 10" type r sub running 400 rms and this set running 160 at each corner, I've never been happier with an audio purchase. It's a great set for the money. Sure theres something lacking in the clarity department, but the mellow tone the set emits is very tolerable at all levels. They're not perfect, but you cannot complain about much a set this decent at such a reasonable price.

If you can afford them, look no further. I doubt there is any other set out there that can deliver the same performance as these guys. At 50 rms they're decent. At 160, they absolutely sing. Im only giving 4 overall stars because they could be a little more clear for this price point, but dont let this deter you from a great listening experience.

The Best Component Speakers I've Ever Heard!

May 20, 2013

Absolutely love these speakers! This was my first experience with Alpine component speakers and I couldn't be happier. When I was in the testing phase of the install I listened briefly to them and thought they were alright but when I dialed in the amps and the head unit EQ these speakers really came alive and rocked my world. Great bass response (I almost regretted buying a sub...almost) crisp and clear highs. The aim-able tweeter is a nice feature allowing you to control the sound direction. I would recommend these to anyone with a car in which these will fit and recommend cutting a bigger hole for the others. Alpine has really hit a home run with these unbelievable speakers.

Alpine Hits Hard!

November 17, 2012

I just installed 3 SWR-12D2's and 2 sets of the Alpine 610 component speakers in my Infinity QX56. The subs are wired down to 1.33 ohms running off a Hiphonics 2400 RMS mono D amp and the components have a Hiphonics GLX amp each and man this thing THUMPS!!!! It's crystal clear with the amps on the components, but the subs KNOCK for real!!!! Seriously satisfied! You need to have a good amp to make these things kick.

I agree with the other reviewers that the tweeters are a tad bright but nothing that the tweeter level control can't tame. I set them at -4db. I am driving these with a 60w per channel MB Quart amp and they sound great. The bass goes lower than I thought they would. They sound is very detailed. I think they do best with Rock and modern Jazz. They sound like they could handle a lot more power pretty easy too. If you are looking for some quality, clean sounding component speakers without breaking the bank, you found them. Sonic is the best place to buy them too. They package well and ship fast. They are a professional company without a doubt. I will be back in the future to do business with them.

While Alpine 6.5" have always been crystal clear, but in the past, some of their 6.5" woofers lacked in the lower registers. These SPR-60Cs have so much more depth at lower frequencies than the older and slightly cheaper SPR-17C. In fact after my pops heard my 60Cs, he has since decided to put his 17Cs in the rear and upgrade his fronts.

Great components

August 26, 2011

I upgraded from some 6x8 coaxial pioneers and the difference was night and day in clarity. The sound quality is superb, the tweet was a bit harsh at first on the 0 db setting but after i adjusted the crossover to -2db it was just right. I highly recommend them. I have them on deck power now and they get super loud i cant even imagine them on 110rms. They also come with adapter plates which came in handy. Don't let the magnet size fool you because they the new neodymium magnets. 5/5 product

Good speakers

December 21, 2014

Don't really know how to review these because I don't know how to compare them. I first listened to them in a local audio store and they sounded very clear. When I hooked them up in my car to a rockford Fosgate p300x2 they still sounded good but i think they could use more power. Currently sending them 100rms and my deh-x7700bs needs to be a little over half way(about 35-38 out of 60max) to listen at a normal level while driving. I will probably upgrade the amp later on, great speakers though.

TERRIBLE SPEAKERS!!

December 14, 2012

I have possibly had these speakers in for about a week and all i can say about them are they suck! the tweeters sound distorted beyond believe, even after I tuned with my Kicker 350.4 with the dd-1. I also have the coaxial version and they aren't any better. If you are looking for some real mid bass and good tweeters get a pair of re xxx 6.5 component! those things run like a machine performing better than JL Audio!

The only thing I am happy about is the amazing customer service provided by Sonic Electronix!

Components worth the bank

October 14, 2011

I am a fan of the Alpine products when it comes to the highs in my system. Component systems is my choice for the overall clarity. The deciding factor for alpine is low cost for high power output. I have a 2003 chevy silverado extended cab LS. Power feeding my highs is a 4 channel, alpine pdx-f4. 100 watt rms x 4. Originally I started with the spr-17s 6.5 components up front, 4 x 6 infinity reference in rear doors. Sounded good, crisp, clear. I liked it so much i wanted more. I removed my 4 x 6's, cutout the opening to fit a 6.5 component system. Installed the spr-60c's. Factory door speaker/grilles remain stock, only major change is the tweeter flush mounted next to it. That change brought the highs out even more and also looked good. The 60c's have same power output, are slimmer, look better, and woofer has more freeplay. I just recently ordered another spr- 60c component system for the front. You will not be disappointed with the product and love the sound.

Much better than the previous generation!

April 23, 2013

I had the previous version of these speakers installed in my last vehicle... They were VERY bright, but with very little midrange or bass. When I saw Alpine had released a new model, I was hesitant to pick them up due to the previous version, but with the awesome price here I decided to give them a try.

I'm VERY glad I did. The speakers are still incredibly bright (and I would recommend a -4db or more selection on the crossovers), but once tweaked to your liking these speakers sound awesome. The midrange and bass are back in full-force, and the sound is clear and crisp (no muddy tones here).

Without an amp, the speakers are still impressive, but for full-effect a 4-channel amp really is needed. I'm currently running them through a Kenwood KAC-8405, also picked up through Sonic Electronix, and I'm incredibly happy with the combination.

I would certainly recommend these speakers to anyone remotely interested in them.

Great sound but need power

November 25, 2011

These are power hungry components. I like the fact that the tweeters aren't shrill. The midbass is not as good as some of the other audiophile expensive options, but these Alpines are superior to most of your common speakers. I highly recommend if you can get them.

Exceeds Expectations

June 12, 2014

Sound quality is excellent. Note that the previous comments about the powerful tweeters are accurate. I set my tweeters to -4 and I may turn them down further to balance the sound.

Running a sound quality setup with 100 RMS per channel from an Alpine amp. Took my time with the install to properly sound dampen the doors. Couldn't be happier with the results.

Purchased to replace 9 year old Infinity's. Are hooked to same Alpine PDX-F4 amp. What a difference. They play louder and a bit cleaner. Highs are not quit as crisp as a hard doom tweeter but do not have the occasional ring as a hard doom. Is a fair trade off. Sonic's price is definitely a plus.

MUST be used with an amplifier! Give them as much power as you want and they will take it. Im pushing 130 watts to each side and there is no distortion att all. The tweeters arent harsh or tinny if you set the crossover right and the vocals and midbass dont even get drowned out by 2 10" HCCAs! Nothing but good things to say about these speakers

What else do I need to install type r speakers?
A shopper on Dec 21, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,

That is far too vague of a question, and you will likely receive many different open-ended suggestions, comments, opinions. You may not need anything at all, considering Alpine is gracious enough to provide brackets with their speakers. However, some installs still need help, by drilling new hole. Others may need a spacer. Having provided a VEHICLE and More In Depth details about your installs, would have surely helped to establish an answer that pertains to your project. Nevertheless, we will submit your question so others can chime in.

guadalupe g on Feb 21, 2015
Best Answer: You can use the 6.5 or 6.75 version of that speaker. They need a lot of power though. I personally have the 6.5 on 120 watts rms each and they sound great.

steven p on Oct 29, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Steven,

Yes, they will. But if you are going to run an amp to these, as intended, then it is recommended to upgrade the wiring to at Least 16gauge.
The crossovers can go wherever you can fit them; Be it in the door panel, a kick panel, in the dash, or displayed.
