Our take on the Alpine SPR-69

by Buck Pomerantz
Alpine

Why replace your car's original speakers?

The speakers that originally came in your car were made from inexpensive materials, designed to create acceptable sound at the lowest possible cost to the manufacturer. If you love music, you deserve better. Name-brand aftermarket speakers deliver fuller, richer sound with considerably more detail and nuance, and they're capable of playing louder and cleaner than factory speakers. Connect new speakers to your factory radio and you'll get the best possible sound from your dealer-equipped system. Pair them up with a new car stereo for a level of enjoyment that can rival a high-fidelity home audio experience.

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.

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.

Features

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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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, Atlanta, GA on Thursday, 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.

none

Don't Be Fooled by the Little Magnets

Written By EEWdad, Snohomish, WA on Saturday, December 28, 2013
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 -

Full range

Written By SimonS, Sacramento, CA on Thursday, 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

SPR-69

Written By Robert, Berkeley Spgs, WV on Friday, April 12, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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

Alpine SPR69

Written By ChrisO, Orlando, FL on Saturday, April 06, 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.

Alpine SPR-69 Review

Written By Georgia Rocker, Atlanta, GA on Sunday, March 17, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.

great sound

Written By MarioT, north attleboro MA on Monday, October 08, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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, Kenosha WI on Sunday, April 01, 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.

Blown Away

Written By DaBudaa, Honolulu, HI on Saturday, March 24, 2012
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).
