Our take on the Alpine SPR-69

Exceptional performance, even at high volume

Alpine Authorized Online Dealer

Like it loud? Alpine designed their Type-R speakers for people who like to turn it up. They'll deliver big, dynamic sound with plenty of bass, 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.

Alpine SPR-69

Fine-tuned for clarity and balance

The SPR-69 6"x9" speakers feature multi-layer hybrid fiber woofers that deliver really strong bass response. Alpine's adapted the specially ridged surround, originally developed for their subs, to these speakers, so you get consistent, extended cone movement that pushes a lot of air. The silk tweeters use a superior ring-dome design to produce smooth highs that bring out your music's detail and depth with no shrillness, plus they swivel to focus the sound better for your seating position.

Smaller, stronger neodymium magnets

Alpine uses powerful neodymium magnets which are much smaller than traditional magnets, so the SPR-69's high-density polymer frames will fit into more places than most 6"x9" speakers. Type-R speakers have earned their reputation in the past as the masters of "crank it to the max," but Alpine has really kicked the performance factor of the latest models up a notch or two.

Priced per pair

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

theyre in my 02 civic coupe. amazing without an amp. I had originally bought the Rockford fosgate primes and those were god awful. so I called and spoke with someone and they recommended these. sure the price is steep but the sound and quality of the product is top notch.

Pros: sound, quality, fit


Fits Perfectly into Ram 1500

Written by: Jerry M from New Jersey on November 19, 2015

The mounting depth of these is almost identical to the stock 6 x9's that are in Ram 1500 pickups that have 6 x 9 stockers. Crutchfield says they won't fit But they went in with no problems, added a ton of dynomat and these speakers rock.Size wise don't rethink it they are nearly identical to the factory installed 6 x 9's

Pros: *Sound great, *power handling, *mounting a breeze. every Ram 1500 owner should have these in the doors.

Cons: highs in the rear doors are muffled.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these speakers and loaded them into some sound ordnance bass bunker boxes which I also bought from Crutchfield. The sound was impressive! I had these speakers teamed up with pioneer deh-80prs and old school fosgate 160a2 which puts out 40x2 rms and the speakers sounded great! I then replaced the fosgate amp with a old school zed built lanzar optidrive 200.2 which puts out 100x2 rms power and all I can say is, wow!! These speakers really came alive when given the power that they craved! The speakers played much louder and the bass was much stronger. As mentioned before by other reviewers, make sure you give them the power they want to sound best.

Pros: Crystal clear highs and punchy bass

Cons: None yet

Great sound, affordable too!

1989 Ford Taurus
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed four of these 100W rms 6X9s in my 2001 Cadillac Seville STS. The car originally came with the Bose surround system featuring seven speakers and a factory sub. I disconnected all of the speakers (including the sub) and replaced each of the four door speakers with an Alpine 6X9. So now I have four of these Alpines, one in each door, powered by a 100W rms X 4 channel Rockford Fosgate Prime amp. All I can say is unbelievable! Super clear, man these speakers sing! completely blew away the factory Bose system. Run 100W rms through these speakers and they hit hard! The base is unbelievable. If you want to add a sub, you better get a good one with a seperate high power amp or you wont be able to hear it over these 6X9s.

Pros: Heavy duty power handling capability. Tight hard hitting base when hooked up through a 100W rms amplifier. Super clear awesome sound quality. Brings your music to life, on a whole new level.

Cons: None I can think of.

I purchased these for my rear deck in a 99 honda civic. The vehicle fit guide was right on, great fit, no modifications, only slightly heavier than my old factory cones. No I am truly immersed in amazing surround sound paired with the spr-60c set up front. These speakers are clean, clear, and beautiful!

Pros: Directional tweeter, factory like fit, great SQ!

Cons: They aren't made by JL Audio?!?!

Excellent speakers

Written by: Anonymous from Atlanta, GA on March 20, 2014

I got these speakers for my 2009 Dodge ram as an upgrade from my stock 6x9's. i was looking for something that i could put an amp too eventually. i was looking around and i decided on the Rockford Fosgate punch 6x9. i went in to my favorite dealer and heard them, they sounded pretty good. then the recommended these Alpine type R. he compared them and wow there was a difference with and without the amp. i installed these in only my front door so far and already my little pioneer HU is making them sing. if you listen to the stocks in the back compared to the front it is amazing what a good pair of speakers can do. i plan to do my backs this weekend. i would recommend these to anyone.

Pros: all parts came with it, easy to install, Sound Amazing!!

Cons: non at all

Excellent speakers that I'd have done well to install in my doors as well as the rear. The 5" component ones I put in the front just aren't a match for these.

Pros: Does pretty much everything I was looking for out of them.

Cons: none

Don't Be Fooled by the Little Magnets

1995 Pontiac Grand Am
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I grew up in the 70's and 80's building car stereos - where bigger magnets meant more powerful speaker motors and better sound. Okay, so I'm probably older than most of you; however, I still like good sound. My daily driver, a mid 90's Pontiac, was in need of a new head unit and so I opted to replace the factory 6x9's (paper construction, cloth surrounds and whizzer cones) in the back at the same time. These Alpine speakers are a huge improvement over the factory speakers -- nice base, much improved high end and very musical. They are a great match for the 18w/channel CDE-149BT. I agree with all of the others who gave these speakers a five star rating.

Pros: Lightweight, easy to install (especially with the connectors provided by Crutchfield); great sound; moveable tweeters; reasonably priced.

Cons: Pretty limited tweeter movement -

Alpine is a great speaker line the clarity and the manufacturing is great. I would suggest them to anybody looking for durable quality speakers.

Pros: These speakers seem strong and durable and carefully manufactured.

Cons: They don't put out a quality bass on their own the highs are nice though.

Full range

Written by: SimonS from Sacramento, CA on April 18, 2013

On my Honda Accord I had the SPR-69 on the rear deck and the SPR-60 on the frontdoors. I have a Pioneer FH-700BT head unit with the MRX-F65 (650 watt) 4-channel amp. Each channel delivering 110 watt RMS. I thought they sounded great w/o an AMP on my Pioneer head unit. I then added the MRP-F300 (300 watt) amp just to see the range of the speakers. I realized that was not enough power since at high volumes I could hear slight clipping on the speakers. I upgraded my amp to the Alpine MRX-F65 and whoa nelly! These little 6x9 speakers sound fuller and the bass is rich. I can't go beyond 20 out of 50 on my dial without the trunk rattling. The doors rattle, rearview mirror shakes, trunk-lid womping at 30! No distortion, no clipping. Just keep in mind that the Type-R speakers are power hungry so if you plan to go big with these speakers get an adequate AMP. 100RMS with 300watt peak.

Pros: very full range, rich midbass

Cons: power hungry

I bought these in order to replace my rear JBL's In a 2001 Solara. They are worth the price. The bass produced be these speakers sound like I have a sub woofer. They are clear and loud. I just recently purchased an alpine KTP-445U amp to power these. I'm installing it today so I'm sure they'll sounds twice as good as they do now.

Pros: Great sound! Great Bass!

Cons: None

Written by: ChrisO from Orlando, FL on April 6, 2013

I recently installed these babies in my accord and let me say they are amazing. They are crisp, but deliver tons of bass. I am using a pioneer 600wattrms 4 channel amp and maybe pushing ~50 watts rms to each speaker. These 6x9's are well worth the money! Using these along with the SPR50c

Pros: Crisp clear sound, loud bass.

Cons: Had to adjust and keep the rms low as it rattles a piece in my trunk, dynamat is a possible solution.

I recently replaced the factory speakers in my Honda Accord with these Alpine's, and have nothing but good things to say about them. The bass is tight, the highs are clear and the overall punch of these rear speakers is amazing to my ears. I am completely satisfied with their performance.

Pros: Tight bass, clear highs, and impressive punch.

Cons: Considering that I don't have an amplifier, or listen to my music at insane volume levels, I don't have any cons to speak of.

These speakers sound awesome, almost makes me regret getting jl audio for the front. The higbs are good, but the mid and bass levels are even better.

these speakers can produce some good bass!!! really clear too. They replaced a pair of HERTZ 6X9 speakers which reallly I had strong doubts, they would beat or match - but they did!!!! great speaker for the money. The fact that they are not as heavy as the Hertz are a real plus since I have them installed on the lids of my Harley and weight is an issue.

Pros: Light in weight, great price for a speaker that can play at the level of a $400 speaker

Cons: didnt really find one

Great speakers for the price

Written by: Devin from Kenosha WI on April 1, 2012

These speakers are great. I love them. I have them paired with a rockford fosgate amp that pushes 88 watts rms. WOW im so glad i invested in these speakers. They were good when i had them hooked up to my stock head unit but they really came alive. They scream. Im thinking i push 100 SPL with these. But i dont know for sure because i dont own a sound meter.

Pros: Sound great., easy to install and for the price they sound great!!!! (They sound good when powered by a head unit but come alive when powered by an amp)

Cons: I had a model year previous to these ones. Blew the tweeter in one somehow but crutchfield took care of the warranty and didnt give me any issues. Also i wish that i could see the grills because they are cool.

2007 Dodge Caliber
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed this in my '07 Dodge Caliber's rear doors (no boston accoustics). At first I installed a pair of Orion XTR 693 in the same doors. The difference in sound is amazing. More powerful bass, and clearer mid and highs. Since the SPR-69 has a smaller magnet it installed easier. I did have to replace four of the original mounting screws (the grey screws, since they are too thick) with the screws that came with the SPR-69's. I also bought baffles for this bad boys, however the plastic door trim and power window rails in the car got in the way of the baffles, so if you have a caliber like me don't get any baffles.

Pros: Easy installation and much better sound quality.

Cons: Price ( I think it's a little bit too expensive).

Product Research


Woofers: The Alpine Type-R series coaxial speakers feature multi-layered hybrid fiber woofer cones. For durability and superior linearity, the woofers use rubber surrounds.

HAMR Surround: Type-R speakers use Alpine's multi roll HAMR surround (patent pending), a technology developed for Alpine subwoofers that maintains control and stability at higher volume levels. HAMR surround combines increased cone area and long linear cone excursion for deep, powerful bass response.

Swiveling Tweeters: The speakers are equipped with 1" (25mm) silk dome tweeters. Alpine's EQ Ring improves the tweeter's dispersion characteristics, providing excellent off-axis response. You can also tilt the tweeters up to 15° to focus the sound where it should be, not pointed at your feet.

Neodymium Magnet: The new smaller neodymium magnet on the Type-R series allows the speaker dimensions to be smaller, making them easier to install in a wide variety of vehicles. They are also lighter than designs using standard magnet technology.

HD Polymer Frame: The new Type-R speakers use a revolutionary HD Polymer frame, making the speaker stronger, lighter, and easier to install.

Mounting: Using the included brackets, the SPR-69 can be bottom mounted.

The small terminal is the negative. [ DAVID  Apr 21, 2015 ]
Crutchfield includes vehicle-specific adapters for many vehicles (that's what I opted to do) it comes with spade connectors on one end for connection to the speakers and your car's speaker connector on the other -- that said, you ask a great question, the owners manual doesn't provide any guidance. My belief is that the small terminal would be negative or ground and the larger terminal would be positive. The good news, if the markings aren't on the speaker terminals themselves, is that you can always test this by ear: what your listening for is the combination that gives you the greatest bass oomph -- the one that sounds fuller and deeper is right combination. If the polarity is reversed, bass will sound weak. [ Mark  Apr 21, 2015 ]
