Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Type-S (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.
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.
Butyl 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 - 22,000 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.
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.
Optional (Accessory Required and Sold Separately)

Awesome Value Upgrade

August 28, 2011

I just finished installing a set of Alpine SPS-610C speakers in a 1995 Mustang convertible as replacements to the stock 5x7/6x8 “premium sound” Ford speakers. They are driven by a 16 watt per channel Alpine iDA-x303 head unit without an external amplifier. The SPS-610C woofers were mounted in the stock door locations using ¼” hardboard to adapt the stock oval hole to 5” round size needed. Making an adaptor was fairly simple – cut a 5” circle in ¼” hardboard, use an old speaker to trace the speaker shape centered on the circle hole you just made, make the final cut about ½” bigger than the speaker line and your template is done. Now make a second one for the other side. You can choose buy adaptor plates with the 5” hole precut. I mounted the SPS-610C tweeters high on the door panel through a trim plate that covers the side mirror mount by cutting a 2” round hole in the plastic. Alpine includes parts to mount the tweeters in a variety of ways including surface mount so you can put these little tweeters just about anywhere you want. Since I do not do this kind of work on a regular basis, installation took several hours because of the custom cutting required. SPS-610C speakers are connected to the head unit by running the stock speaker wire first to the woofer then connecting a second supplied wire, with built in crossover, from the woofer terminals to the tweeter. Alpine provides wiring and crossovers for the tweeter, but be aware that Alpine DOES NOT INCLUDE PIGTAILS to connect the woofer to your stock speaker wires. You will have to solder your own pigtails, which I chose to do, or buy one of the various stock speaker connector wires specific to your vehicle. I had to take one start off the Value category for Alpine being chincy. The stock rear speakers were also replaced with Alpine SPS-517 Coaxial 2-Way speakers. Alpine DOES include the pigtails to connect the SPS-517 speakers to the stock wiring. The sound created by these component speakers is a tremendous upgrade over stock even with the internal 16 watt per channel head unit. The SPS-610C component speakers provide a richer sound experience with better separation than a standard 2-way speaker. The woofers provide impressive low frequency sufficient to vibrate side view mirrors of the car at mild volume although nothing like the feel you would get from a dedicated subwoofer and amp combination. The performance of these speakers is excellent for the cost. Paired up with the SPS-517’s in the back there is ample sound to enjoy music on the highway with the top down. For a bit more oomph, an Alpine KTP-445 head unit amp would provide a clean 45 watts per channel. However, if you are considering a high power external amplifier for your car you should probably spring for a Type-R or Type-X speaker set instead of the Type-S.

I love these speakers. I gave a 4 overall because the only instructions are on the back of the box and the part I really needed clarification on, was covered by the shipping label. Also the tweeter mounts are a little fragile. The sound is incredible. I mounted tweeters in the stock location up on dash window corners of my 2012 Hyundai Sonata. They provide crisp highs while the mid-woofers mounted on the doors provide incredible range with incomparable clarity over stock speakers.

good speakers for the money.

February 14, 2014

i bought these speakers for my new setup in my cars, i am running a powerful sub so i just needed clean sounding speakers that didn't necessarily have to produce alot of bass. I feel these are great speakers if your running subwoofers, if your not i would recommend the type r's instead so you can get a little more bass out of them. Always amp these component speakers no matter what model you buy, its worth it. these speakers actually cost about the same as my pontiac "monsoon" aka monsuck speakers would have costed to replace and are insanely better.

Good for mids and highs, less bass than I expected.

February 1, 2014

I bought these for the front of my '02 F-250 and have had them for a few months. The factory Ford speakers were 5x7, so these fit the location, but need an adapter to be properly screwed down and the door panel needs to be space out about 1/2 inch to prevent the 6.5" woofer from contacting the grille on the door panel. I mounted the tweeters in the panel behind the door mirrors. The highs are absolutely amazing at Sonic's price, the woofer doesn't get quite as low as I expected. I thought that they would cover the low end a bit more than they do. Without adding a subwoofer, I would be somewhat disappointed in the overall performance. If you add a sub, they work well covering the mid and high frequencies. The speakers look good, but I do not like the new plastic frame on the woofer. As others have mentioned, these come with the wiring from the woofer to the tweeter, but no wiring to connect to the headunit. Not a big deal, but a little frustrating. I have these powered by a Alpine CDE-147BT head unit.

An Alpine top value!!

October 29, 2013

I installed these speakers in the door of my Toyota Yaris, these speakers replace an old, worn set of JL evolution co-axis. Boy, the difference was amazing! Clear highs and surprising mid-bass! An incredible bang for the buck investment! I got em' hooked to a 70 watt per channel Alpine amp, (on the pre-set high pass setting). Now commute in my beater is quite enjoyable! Thanks Sonic!!

Good Speakers

October 11, 2013

This is a good speaker for the money. Upon opening I was put off by the plastic baskets and thought I made a mistake, but these sound great. I have these in front, powered with alpine 50x4 along with the alpine sps-610 for rear fill. They sound great at full range alone, but added a kicker amp/sub package to give it a real nice bottom end. I didn't run these w/o the amp so I can't speak to that.

Great step up from factory speakers

September 22, 2013

Installed this speakers on 2008 Acura TSX. Fits and sounds great. This is a good step up from the factory speakers without the need to install an amp. The tweeter also fits on the factory tweeter location (with a little modification).

Good for Listening but not for Extreme Loudness

August 27, 2013

If you are looking for good quality sound that enhances your stock stereo then you might like these. If you are looking for something that gets loud then these are not for you. I bought 2 pair of these for my celica and hooked them up to a 4 channel hifonics amp pushing 100W to each of them. Even though it says they can handle up to 240W, they have blown twice and I am now on my third pair with a blown tweeter. I admit I listen to them extremely loud but I figure they should be able to handle it. I guess not.

great value indeed!

August 25, 2013

1st off, i didnt buy mine from sonic but i had to give praise somewhere..note that i have mdf baffles and deadener in my doors so your MMV.. i love these components. theyre running off an alpine cda-9815 ~27w RMS and they sing, however it takes most of the h/u power to get them really going, i cant wait to see what a good clean amp will do. i havent tried them all but ive tried lots and i can say these would be hard to beat for the money. my only gripe is the basket material, not that its bad, but its easy to crack/damage if youre not careful installing. thanks to finding a mint 9815 locally i have become a recent alpine convert and im enjoying them quite a bit (cda-9815, sps-610c, mrp-m350) my highs amp will be alpine also. for some reason i always thought alpine was over priced and over marketed like some other well known brands but ive found them to be a pretty good value.

Very good performance for the money!

June 20, 2013

We purchased these as replacements for OEM speakers in an '03 VW Passat. Install was reasonably easy, although we had to modify the plastic VW trim that had the original OEM tweeter, and add standoffs to the door panel speaker mounts to allow for window clearance. Once installed, the speakers all perform really well. Good sound clarity throughout the full range of highs and lows. We liked these speakers so well that I've purchased two additional sets to replace the ones that were stolen when the vehicle was recently carjacked. I guess the car thieves liked the performance too!

Alpine Type S 6-1/2" component

May 19, 2013

These speakers are the same as the Type S 6-1/2" coax speakers, but they come with a better crossover. (12db vs. 6db.) I have them powered from an amp at 75 watts each. The sound is good for the price. These could be powered from a good head unit with no problem. I installed them in a friends truck who didn't want to spend a lot on speakers (along with a 8" Image Dynamics sub), and he was very happy with this sound. And for just over $400 for these component speakers, 8" sub, amplifier, and Stinger HPM wiring, we now have an great sounding budget system and the interior still looks stock.

Amazing sound

January 9, 2013

I installed these speakers into my '99 Blazer with the woofers in the door and the tweeters in the dash. It took several hours to cut the tweeter mounts and redrill the woofer mounting brackets on the door and to wire in the in-line crossover. That being said the sound clarity versus stock is night and day across all variations of music from alternative to dubstep these speakers perform. I am very impressed as to how low these speakers will go. In some cases its enough to vibrate the rearview mirror. The sound is extremely full and rich with clear highs. And I am just running them off of my Kenwood KDC-352U deck for now. Matched with a subwoofer this will be nothing short of an outstanding stereo setup. I recomend this kit to anyone looking for a great set under $100. Once again Alpine has lived up to my expectations.
