Our take on the Alpine SPR-10TW

by John Pollard
Alpine

Exceptional performance, even at high volume

Alpine Authorized Online Dealer

Like it loud? Alpine designed their Type-R SPR-10TW tweeters for people who like to turn it up. They'll deliver detailed, crisp highs and they'll handle lots of volume. They'll work great with your car stereo, but they really come into their own when you power them with an outboard amp.

Fine-tuned for clarity and balance

These 1" silk tweeters bring out your music's detail and depth without any annoying shrillness. Alpine mounts an EQ ring in front of each tweeter that helps to disperse the highs so you get a larger listening "sweet spot" in your ride. The tiny outboard crossover network mounts easily, sending the correct frequencies to the tweeter. You can choose from four tweeter levels so these Alpine domes blend perfectly with the rest of your speaker system.

Highlights:

  • 1" silk dome tweeters (pair)
  • flush-, top-, and bottom-mount hardware included
  • external crossovers with 4-way level control
  • power handling: 5-150 watts RMS (450 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 1,000-29,000 Hz
  • impedance: 4 ohms
  • sensitivity: 88 dB
  • flush-mount depth: 11/16"
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Features

EQ Ring: Alpine's EQ Ring improves the tweeters' dispersion characteristics, providing excellent off-axis response. When using the flush-mount housing you can also tilt the tweeters up to 15° to focus the sound toward your ears.

Mounting Options: The tweeters come installed in a swiveling flush-mount housing. You can also install the tweeters behind factory grilles using the included stealth mount brackets. The stealth mount brackets can be top or bottom mounted. The installed tweeter dimensions are:

  Flush Mount (swivel) Factory Location (bottom mount) Factory Location (top mount)
Mounting Depth 0.67" 0.965" 0"
Mounting Height 0.43" 0" 0.8"
Cutout Diameter 2.007" N/A N/A
Frame Diameter 2.275" 1.7" x 2.8" 1.7" x 2.8"

Crossovers: Each crossover has four tweeter level options, allowing you to precisely tune the high frequencies to the car interior and tweeter placement. Using the supplied jumpers select 0dB (no attenuation), -2dB, -4dB, or -6dB.  Two-sided tape is included to mount the high-pass crossovers and their dimensions are:

  • Width: 2.65"
  • Height: 0.97"
  • Depth: 1.27"

Time for new Tweet's!

Written By CorvetteGuru, San Pedro, CA on Friday, January 17, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
So far, only one tweeter is in... these were replacing the tweeters in a nearly antique set of Canton Pullman RS3 components. Canton no longer does car audio, and finding good drivers is tough.

These are a three way set up, like the JL Audio 653 components. 6" midbass, 4" mid range and 1" tweeters.

The old amp died and blew the right tweeter! It was scratchy and generally not pleasant.

The new tweeter is much much cleaner. Works very well with the Canton passive crossover and sound very nice. I am very thrilled with the clarity and musicality of the new tweeters. In general, I prefer the more natural sound of a silk dome over metal tweeters. Silk just has more natural transitions and sounds less harsh.

Pros:
Easy to install, great sound.
Cons:
Nothing that I can tell.
