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 Coaxial 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 Size
Refers to the size of the tweeter. Typically, smaller tweeters produces less output with higher frequency response.
1"
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 layered-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.
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.
100 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".
87 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 - 27000 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.
2-5/16" (59mm)
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.
3-5/16" (84.9mm)
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches, required to contain the speaker.
Number of Speakers
This is the number of speaker that is included in the package. Each purchase will result in receiving the number of speakers indicated here. Please note that some items will have multiple woofers in the same enclosure. For sets of component speakers, this number will refer to the number of sets of speakers (For example, 2 would indicate the purchase includes 2 woofers and 2 tweeters).

Please refer to the product image and description for further details about the speaker.

October 30, 2010

I just got these to complete my Honda Accord. The Alpine SPR-17C and Alpine SPR-13S (The component speakers) are loud and clear, they definitely get the job done and then some. They blow my mind. Also, these are the best prices I could find! Sonic is amazing and it's always a pleasure doing business.

Alpine SPR-17C Review

great speakers

November 21, 2010

These speakers are great rear speakers to have for almost any speaker setup because of their great performance. After a bit of modifying the grill that is in my car, I got these speakers to fit and after putting them through a sound test, they performed flawlessly. The sound coming from the back, nicely accompanied the front speakers and gave me a great sound experience. I would highly recommend buying these speakers if you are wanting a great replacement rear speaker.

Alpine Type R coaxials

September 5, 2010

Great speakers for the $. I would gladly recommend them (and have). They don't exactly have the world's flattest output curve, but they get pretty loud with relatively little distortion. I would say the best perk of this particular speaker is that the midbass (which I define as 70-200hz) is quite forceful relative to other speakers in a similar price range. The midrange is warm but a little muddy at high volume. The high end is a bit harsh, but it's nothing a little EQ can't tame. I didn't encounter any problems installing them - no funky clearance issues or odd screw patterns or anything.

Good upgrade

May 2, 2010

These speakers have a very flat response. The middle frequencies that the SPS-17c (Alpine's economical model) fail to reproduce are all there. The result is a smoother, fuller sound that will enrich almost any type of music, especially jazz and music with horns/acoustic strings.

The lows are pretty much as good as you can get from a coaxial speaker. And the highs are not too bright or overpowered, which is just the way I like it.

This speaker is very sophisticated and well-built. If you look at the back of the speaker, you will notice an extra capacitor i think (compared to the SPS) which filters the lower frequencies. It's been a while since I saw it so that's all I recall, but i remember being impressed with the crossover. The magnet is really big though, so make sure it fits.

Despite the low sensitivity, these speakers WILL do fine connected to just a headunit/factory radio. They did fine wired to my Kenwood HU (22 watts RMS) before I got my 4-channel amp; the entire frequency spectrum was accounted for.

Oh, and the price here ($90) is amazing.

Review of Alpine SPR-17C

February 9, 2009

I would really recommend these speakers because they have a nice, clear sound and I am currently not running as much power to them as I could be and they still have great performance alongside my 2 Alpine Type R subwoofers. Once again I would recommend these and I have not had any problems with them for as long as I've had them.

Alpine has always been my favorite speaker, their highs are so crisp. Nothing changed in their quality, still amazing! Type R over type S any day of the week, the extra $20 is well spent there. I had them in my scion tC and now I plan on getting 4 more for my Honda Del Sol.

These speakers are alright. They have great power handling and durability, and are well built. Get them if you are looking for power and a little more low end. I wasn't impressed with the mids. if you want excellent sound quality, and good power handling, and much better value (half the price), check out RE.

Amazing Speakers at a Great Price

July 21, 2010

I have owned these speakers before and was on the hunt for a great deal. Sonic Electronix not only had them in stock with an amazing price. I picked up a set and wired them to a Alpine PDX-1.1000 and could not be happier with my purchase and putting these into the G coupe. No problems at all so far half a year later, extremely happy with the company and will do business with them again!

Wow!

February 26, 2010

Don't listen the the guy below me. I've owned them for 6 months and have to say these are pretty damned good for the amount you pay.

Considering these are mere coaxials, the bass is phenomenal. It's no subwoofer, but if you didn't know any better, you wouldn't be able to tell. The trebles have no trouble keeping up with the bass and remain crystal clear even while my car is rattling like it's about to fall apart.

In order to obtain similar/great results, you MUST amp them. DO NOT USE A HEADUNIT TO POWER THEM. They will sound as bad or even worse than cheap $5 speakers.

Can't beat these for $90.00

February 16, 2010

No speakers will beat these at $90.00 a pair. I have these as my rears and Type R components in the front powered by a JBL GTO1004 at 100wrms per channel and they scream and do it lovingly. Give these power, they need it. If you want a speaker you don't need to amp I'd get something else. These are not for the timid.

What amazing speakers

December 10, 2012

I LOVE this product. Got 4 speakers installed in my 2011 Sonata a couple days ago. Super super clear. Since these are 100 Watt RMS, try getting a 100 Watt (RMS) Amplifier installed with it, or else your stereo will overcrank and it will produce a distorted sound. Believe me, go with these speakers and get an amp with it, your life will be complete.

These speakers are amazing. I ordered them for a buddy and as soon as we threw them in his car the sound was incredible. Without being powered off of anything except a Sony Xplode deck from Walmart, they keep up with his 2 12" Kicker subs powered by a 500watt amp. They make it seam like the front door speakers are non existent. I would recommend them highly, for the price, there is no way to get any better sound quality. They are way better than my Infinity Kappas I have in my car.

2006 Subaru Impreza WRX 6.5in Type R Review

September 5, 2010

I purchased these Type R speakers for my 2006 Crystal Grey Metallic Subaru Impreza WRX, and I must say alpine never lets me down. Hands down some of the best interior speakers I've ever purchased. They're loud and durable enough to keep sound pumping out over my 2 SX10 Subwoofer 1500w RMS setup. However, if you do have an Impreza like mine you have to lay a few layers of fatmat down behind the speaker to get the door cards to fit properly. Also you should lay down a fair amount of sound deadening on the doors to minimize vibrations.

I have these speaker as rear speaker for my corolla they have a very good bass for 6.5 speaker and can reach very high frequency with ease. the crossovers on the side of the speaker can get in the way, I had to cut a little from the rim of my stock speaker hole. the work great and are very durable and are made with good material. I would recommend these speakers to anyone
