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
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
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 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.
Optional (Accessory Required and Sold Separately)

Alpine Door speakers

Ordered these to replace the speaker in my back doors of my F150 Supercrew. These were easy to install and sound good with the rest of my system.

Fits really nice on Chevrolet Traiblazer 2003 but ...

May 20, 2014

For those who have Chevrolet Trailblazer 2003 this are the speaker you need fro your ride, to be more in detail the speaker have many holes configurations and even come with a sturdy strong bracket mount and comes with cables not so long but enough length, the rear woofer were easy too install I recommended to cut the plug wire because will make no sense to keep the original factory wire plug, I myself like to solder the wire and the use a plastic clamp cup to protect the wire, also make sure your wire speaker have the correct polarity before soldering, what I did I went online and found the color code for the rear speakers, the front speakers is another story the wires are red and black there is factory tweeter installed and good guys from GM place the nice red and wire simple cable that make my job easier, to be more in detail for those who own Chevrolet Trailblazer 2003 in my case, the front plastic bracket the speaker will not fit correctly but with some modification I took out some material from the bracket and now they fit really nice, another solution is that you can purchase the bracket that fits all aftermarket speakers for your Chevrolet Trailblazer.


I did some sound test with all speakers and respond really well bass is good and high frequencies I just turn the volume in 24 on my Sony double din and is nice really nice I do not go to expert comment because is not necessary lol

what surprise me is that the basket is made of plastic and that give another advantage, here in Puerto Rico the weather is humid so that helps I guess lol the old speakers were rusted on the frame lol

by the way one more thing, the quality of the construction is really well made

I hope this help someone :D

Juan

These are great speakers for the money. Sound great for me as rear fill. I was skeptical at first but after dropping them in the rear deck of the honda, and giving them 50 watts rms I was sold. I would definitely recommend these.

As good as you'll get from 6.5"

October 4, 2014

Great sound. Obviously, it's tough for a 6.5" to match what you can get from a 6x9" in terms of deep sound or bass, but you've got to work with what fits in your car. Depending on the kind of bass, though, you will find yourself pleasantly surprised at how great the 610s and 610Cs sound. Put the 610s in the back dash of my 2010 Civic EX-L and the SPS-610C in the front.
The 610s are great, no complaints.
Word of warning about the 610Cs, though, if you're doing a total speaker replacement like I did. The tweeter components are so much louder than stock ones that if you have any factory amp that boosts the tweeters they will scream so loudly they will completely throw your sound quality out of whack. I ended up putting my stock tweeters back in and everything sounds wonderful now.
Sonic Electronix had the best price I could find and the speakers arrived within a few days.

trust the brand, had their products in the past. good price.
Jason W on Jan 12, 2015
I picked alpine because they are a great company sound wise and you want bass its ether them or JL. needed good mids and highs so I went with what was the best out of the bunch. cant go wrong with 80 rms each speaker for $65. most the other speakers weren't half the power and were charging $25 more. stick with the best JL, Alpine, Rockford, Pioneer for highs and Clarion for highs.

What is the overall depth of the speaker? I need a shallow mount for my Mustang.
mustanglady on Dec 3, 2014
Best Answer: The speaker dRoth is 56mm or 2-1/4"(in). This speaker is not a shallow one. The tweeter protrudes a little bit further out of the woofer. I put mine in a 2000 Nissan Altima front door. The speaker is very good. I like mine so much. You'll need an amp for more bass though. I do not use an amp with mine as the bass is just enough for me. Good luck!
