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" 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.
1" Ring 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 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".
89 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).
60 - 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.

Alpine SPR-69C

May 31, 2010

WOW! These speakers are loud! If you have these in the appropriate environment, power them with a sufficient amp, these speakers will definitely be loud enough for you. They are so crisp and clear and they don't have that really high pitched noise that an aluminum dome tweeter would give considering these tweeters are silk dome. Although they are kind of expensive than some other 6x9's out there, for the quality and price I got these for, they were great! Definitely would recommend these to any car audio enthusiasts.

These speakers are great and can go loud. They also have high bass response from the head unit alone, but they do distort at higher volumes. Even at lower volumes I think they should be POWERED. Don't spend the money unless your hooking up an amp sucka.

Subwoofer not needed

June 15, 2012

I've had these speakers for a while now, had them just running off the head unit and they were good, but just seemed to be lacking something. Finally upgraded my whole system and they are now powered by a 100W RMS amp like they should be and I'm speechless. They punch like nothing I've heard and the sound is super clean. If you're a bit of an audiophile like me you won't be disappointed! If you don't have room for or don't want a subwoofer just get these with an amp, people won't believe there isn't a 10" in the trunk.

Stands Up To It's Type-R Status

January 9, 2009

I have these speakers hooked up to the Alpine F550 amp. I never ran them off of the receiver so I couldn't really tell you the sound quality difference. The tweeters are bright, but don't give that annoying tin sound a metal tweeter would give. The bass is a little weaker than I'd like, but I have subs, so it might be my hearing just trying to adapt. These will get extra loud! I still have yet to upgrade my front speakers, but I can already claim the loudest car of all of my friends. I have not pushed them to there max yet, but I plan on doing so when the weather heats up.
I have heard speakers from all of the local stores, but these are by far the best I've heard.

Great speakers

July 29, 2008

I replaced my stock system with these running off an amp at 60 watts per channel. They sound great haven't been able to get any distortion. The bass is very tight and sounds great. Rattles my mirrors and doors!!

Amazing

January 3, 2008

i've had these now for a year, originally paired with just my alpine cda 9856 headunit, and now hooked up to the kicker 350.4 amp. It sounded in beautiful in both applications, whether its 15 or 60 watts. It obviously doesnt have the bass that a sub would, but if you just want to fill in the lows and still have great sound, these speakers are perfect. I would definitely recommend these, and every other alpine product if you can afford it.

type r all the way!!

February 21, 2011

Theres a lot of debate between Infinity Kappas and Type R speakers. And I've heard almost nothing but great reviews from both sides. I personally decided to make my choice with alpine and I don't regret it at all. I'm from LA so good music in your car is a must. these speakers are so LOUD and amazingly crisp and clear! With decent bass (which gets drowned out by my sub anyways so i dont need it really haha). They literally make me hear other instruments and little musical flares in the music that I never heard with my stock speakers. I drive a 2000 honda prelude and the stock spears really weren't that bad at all. You just have to know how to tune them to your liking. but these are just awesome. Price is great I think and I'm just blown away by the sound. I also have these powered by a 4 channel pb xtreme amp running 100x4rms. Its awesome. after shopping around and lots of research and personally listening to systems i chose type r and dont regret it one bit! i just with it was a component system but there arent that many 6x9 components out there.

Good not great

December 28, 2010

The woofers are great, midbass is excellent and they perform well at only 64 watts. Tweeters can get a bit "pingy" and "lispy" but for the price these are decent

Best speakers available at this price?

May 23, 2010

These 6x9s sound incredible when just powered by a JVC 20-watt RMS (50 watt max) headunit. When amped, they must be amazing!

Will really pump out some bass with so little power. Highs and mids are the expected Alpine crispness and clarity. Buy them -- you won't be disappointed!

Very satisfying sound for the money

December 19, 2008

I am running these "R" series 6 x 9's in my Chevy Colorado single cab pick-up. Due to space constraints I have them in little "Pro-box" wedge shaped speaker boxes behind each seat with the boxes anchored to the cab wall with a self drilling/tapping screw. I am driving them with a Kenwood deck at 25 watts RMS/50 watts Peak power. They sound great paired with the Alpine "R" series 6.5" component speakers, crossover and tweeters in the doors. Sonic shipped them to me quickly and they arrived in perfect condition. I would happily buy from them again in the future.
