Top-tier sound

The sonic specialists at Alpine optimize their SPS-610 6-3/4" speakers for great range and impressive tone definition, even at low power levels. You can connect these versatile Type-S Series speakers to your factory stereo for an immediate sonic improvement, or hook them up to a powerful aftermarket stereo or amp for increased performance.

Mineral-fortified polypropylene cones are exceptionally stiff, yet lightweight, which means they can push out accurate bass and deliver clear midrange. Resilient rubber surrounds help keep the woofer centered for accurate cone movement, reducing distortion. Silk dome tweeters bring out all the details in your music. Grilles are not included — factory grilles are appropriate for most installations.

Note: Alpine describes this model as a 6-1/2" speaker. Most manufacturers designate this same frame size as a 6-3/4" speaker. For simplicity's sake we list it as a 6-3/4" speaker.

Priced per pair
Note: Sorry, Crutchfield cannot ship Alpine products to Guam or Puerto Rico.

Why replace your factory 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.

Poly-Mica Cone: Each SPS-610 speaker features a Poly-Mica cone and butyl rubber surround. Mica adds strength and heat resistance to polypropylene, resulting in reduced distortion and improved reliability.

Silk Dome Tweeters: Each speaker has a 1" Wide-Range Silk Dome Tweeter for smooth high frequencies. The tweeters also swivel up to 10° so you can optimize them based on your listening position.

Efficient Design: The SPS-610's high-efficiency design allows the speaker to be powered by your factory or aftermarket head unit, resulting in an easy system improvement for many vehicles requiring 6-1/2" or 6-3/4" speakers.

Mounting: Without an adapter, the SPS-610 speakers fit standard 6-3/4" applications. Given their required cutout, they will also fit standard 6-1/2" applications without an adapter, but new screw holes must be drilled. Using the included adapter brackets the SPS-610s can be mounted in a variety of standard 3-hole 6-1/2" applications, Ford 4-hole 6-1/2" applications, and non-standard 6-3/4" applications, without any modification.

No Grilles: No grilles are included with these speakers.

Alpine SPS-610

Written By Anonymous, South Carolina on Monday, March 16, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased these speakers as factory replacements in the rear of my '08 Frontier. The quality of sound is far better than the factory speakers! They are very crisp and responsive. As other reviewers have stated, there is very little bass output from these. They match well with the 6 x 9's in the front, creating a full sound throughout the cab.

Pros: Great factory replacement.

Cons: Very little bass response.

Awesome Sound

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product. I am a huge Alpine fan and I was debating on getting these or the type r for a little more money. Decided to go with these since I was adding other type s speakers in my FJ Cruiser. Love the fact that Crutchfield sells the adapters so I could fit these in my 6x9 openings. These speakers really don't provide a lot of bass but that was what I wanted since I added 2 12" Type R Alpine's with a 1200wt amp. The set up right now is perfect with the bass from the subs and the highs and mids from these. Think I made the best decision with I purchased Alpine from my CD player all the way back to my subs.

Pros: Clear Highs Strong Mids Easy to install

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very easy to install, much easier than Crutchfield led me to believe, however I am very displeased with the performance. I bought these and the component version for my truck. The component version sounds amazing, very clear with alot of bass drive and clear treble. However these were crackling right out of the box at mid-loud volume, possible i could have gotten a bad set. May be returning them very soon and bite the bullet and drill tweeter holes so i can install the component speakers in the rear of my truck.

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: Poor sound quality, crackling sound.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First time buying the size 6 1/2 Alpine Type-S speakers, although I do have experience with their 6x9's and bought these because I loved what they offer in terms of quality construction and sound for your money. These went into the front doors of a 4 door Acura Integra and I will be the first to say you may need to use your old speakers spacers with mild modification, along with the new spacers provided by Alpine to actually clear the regulator arm for the window operation. Its not a huge challenge so long as you have a hacksaw and a vice to hold the old spacer as you saw threw the bottom to allow room for the bigger magnet and screw the two spacers together. They mount perfect and clear everything just fine once done!

Pros: Great bang for the buck.

Cons: May require thicker spacers modification to fit front doors of some cars .

Scion Xb install...disappointed.

Written By Matt, Illinois on Monday, January 19, 2015

Installed these in the back of my xb, was disappointed in the sound right off the bat. I have some infinity reference series up front and they sound fantastic. I thought maybe they needed to break in and break is exactly what they did less than 4 months of them blew. I wasn't impressed from the beginning and I will be going with a different brand this time.

Cons: poor sound quality, blown speaker in 4 months.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I replaced the old stock speakers in my 98 dodge Dakota pickup truck with these. It made a phenomenal difference even with the stock deck. I also replace the deck with an Alpine CDE-153BT. The entire installation took only a day and the instructions from Crutchfield where flawless. I now have bass when I didn't even know what that was. The system was inexpensive and has given new life to an old truck.

Pros: Great all around range Easy installation Terrific sound

Replaced the rear door factory speakers in my 2010 Lancer and are driven by an upgraded receiver/amplifier. The installation only required drilling four holes in the door sheet metal. The mid-range sound is much better than before.

Pros: Nice product and a modest price.

Cons: None

Smooth and bassy

Written By Isaac T, Stevens Point, WI on Tuesday, July 15, 2014

This speaker makes me fall in love every time I hear it. The bass response is among the best that I've heard from a speaker (even on headunit power) and the tweeter is subdied, mellow, and smooth. Nowhere near tinny, at all. For keeping up with subs this wouldn't be a good choice, IMO, but if you don't want a sub and want as much bass as you can get from a budget speaker-only system, these are the ticker. On the power pack or an amp they perform even better! The tweeter is on a swivel, so you can aim it a little, which is nice, too. Wonderful speaker. They even come with Chrysler mounting brackets, which is a bonus.

Pros: Great bass Mellow tweeter Good on headunit power, great on amp power.

Cons: Not ideal for pairing up with subs if you're only running on headunit power if you want lots of treble response. No grills included

Amazing speakers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers sound amazing!! Purchased from Crutchfield during a special sale that was buy one get one half off so I purchased two sets, one for the front and the other for the rear. Replaced the stock paper cone speakers in my car. With any Crutchfield purchase, they came with the master installation sheet made specifically for my car.

Pros: Amazing sound. Good range of sound. Lucky enough for an amazing deal on the speakers.

Cons: Lacking bass so a subwoofer may be needed if you want that extra "oomph" in your music. Installation master sheet could have been a bit clearer (or it may have just been my car that was difficult)

Wish I would have looked before installation to see my Truck already had the separates, Would have spend the few extra dollars to keep it that way. I did expect a bit better bottom end having gone with the 6 3/4. That said it is much better then the aged factory units I took out.

Pros: Crutchfield's vehicle look up and installation kit made this a breeze!! Would not do it any other way.

Cons: None - everything went as expected

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The speakers work fine. The supplied adapters were not big enough, so used both adapters the free ones and the ones that came with the speakers. I felt better hooking the speakers with the alpine adapters they had bigger screws. The free ones had pretty little ones to connect the speakers.

Pros: The speakers have clear sound from my Clarion head unit. I have them matched with SPR 6x9 and they are a good match.

Cons: none yet

SPS-610 install and performance

Written By Mike M, 06057 on Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Ordered speakers, adapter plate and wiring adapter for easy install in rear doors of 2011 Jetta TDI. The depth of the speakers 2 1/4 work with the recess within the door. It might permit a deeper speaker but these fit fine. The only notable comment is that when the speaker is mounted flush to thrle inner metal panel of the door is that there is a small gap at the top that needs to be closed out(velcro works) As for the sound..great though even when the mids and highs are adjusted i would prefer a separarte tweeter SPS610c. Might cost a bit more.. I might do that for my front ones. But all in all the sound is great and the price is right and you limit your exposure to any install issues.

Pros: Fit within car..fantastic Sound. Mid and bass great

Cons: Wish there was just a little more highs. But if you want everything be prepared for not only the cost of the speaker..but its installation

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Hey, what can I say, these are Alpines! Legendary Alpine clarity with rich deep lows, great mid range, and infinite highs. These SPS 610s are being used as rear speakers in a SAAB 9000 Aero Hatchback. Just to give props to the whole system, the stereo is simple, a Clarion NZ 500 receiver , two 4" Alpines in the front, a 150 watt Fosgate amp powering a 10" Pioneer sub in the hatch. Not overly complicated but sounds better than the factory Bose in my CTS, and tons better than the my Lexus' system. The speakers range is clear and feedback free all the way up to max.

Pros: Great sound.

Cons: Wish Alpine had a 6 X 9.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these speakers a year or so ago. One the of the reasons I got them was because they were buy on get one half off. I should have just spent the money and got a set of pioneers. I agree with some of the other reviews about them being muddy. There is no crispness to them. There is also a lack of bass. My receiver sends just the low frequencies to the back two just to get any bass out of them. I thought there might be a break in time but one year later and they still disappoint.

These are the starting point of quality sound

Written By Rex, Arkansas on Saturday, November 02, 2013

These speakers are very close to what you get in an "upgraded" factory stereo as far as the sound. Not as good as Bose, but genuinely good sound. It doesn't bother me at all to go from my 1200 watt, high end focals and subwoofer in my truck to my cheap little car with just two of these Alpines. The reason I like them so much is that they are not overly bright or harsh. Sure, you can't hear the lead singer blink his eyes like you can on the focals, but you can listen to them for 12 hours on the road to every kind of music without needing a break. After reading some of the reviews, it is obvious that people buying lower end speakers like these are not willing to install them properly for good sound. Make no mistake, these are good enough to require a solid mount and some dynamat (or peel and seal from home depot). This will eliminate the "muddiness" some people are getting and allow you to hear what a basic speaker should sound like. Also, when installed properly, you can get some good bass out of these. My bass is set on 3 out of 6 and these things do just fine, and I'm used to a 12" sub. Personally, I love good music in my car, and these represent the starting point for good music in my opinion. Don't get the wal-mart noise makers, spend the extra $20 and get a pair of these (or at least something as good). I am running these in the front doors of a 98 Toyota Carolla from the cheapest alpine head unit (17 Watts RMS). Full dynamat on both front doors.

Pros: Cheap, not harsh or peaky, balanced, smooth, warm, easy to listen to, generally enjoyable to most everyone for any type of music, best $100 speaker I've heard

Cons: Instruments tend to run together when played simultaneously, highs are so soft that snare drums sometimes sound like a baby sneezing, imaging is almost non-existent, all the common limitations of $100 speakers without all the harsh, unnatural, unbalanced traits you usually get

Cons: expensive

Well, not the Alpine I expected

Written By DCRT08, Grand Rapids, MI on Thursday, October 03, 2013

First and foremost I'm happy to do business with Crutchfield because they're always very helpful. It costs money to have experts on staff to serve customers so I don't even mind paying a little more at Crutchfield, but usually their prices are competitive anyway.

My setup is a Pioneer deck using the RCA outputs to an Alpine KTP-445A power pack, then to a pair of SPS-610s and a pair of SPS 406s. I've predominantly used Alpine products for 30 years but I have to say that I think Alpine isn't what it used to be. While these speakers aren't the priciest around, they're in the same price range as some that perform better. These speakers tend to sound muddy and they aren't terribly responsive. Even when taking into account the speaker size, the bass performance is pretty poor. Forget getting anything out of them for low frequencies. They also are not very efficient so the recommendation is don't try these unless you have a separate amp even if it is a small one. I first installed the deck and amp then made sure that worked before replacing the factory speakers in my truck. If you can believe it, the factory speakers performed better in many ways than the Alpines did.

In all I'd say these speakers are "ok" but I'd look to a different brand that is at least more efficient before settling on these. I'd return them but they don't sound bad enough for me to go through the hassle of removing and replacing them. I think Alpine needs to step it up.

Pros: Seem to be made well.

Cons: Muddy sound, poor responsiveness, and not efficient.

Written By joc1394, Hagerstown, MD on Monday, July 15, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These sounded great, but unfortunately they didn't fit... These fit the front doors of my 2007 Honda Civic EX Coupe, as expected from the Crutchfield "Fits My Car" tool, but NOT the rear deck location as indicated... They were too deep and hit the rear torsion bars for the trunk lid.

I ended up returning these for a set of Pioneer TS-A1675R's which I found to be even better than these, especially when they actually fit. These are good, but the Pioneers seem to be a bit better sound-wise, especially in the low end.

Pros: Crisp, clear, and bright sound.

Cons: Doesn't fit rear of 2007 Honda Civic EX Coupe as expected from "Fits My Car" tool. You'll want a sub to go with these, there isn't much bass.

Written By Drama, SA, TX on Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers create a nice warm tone throughout the car without being overdramatic with the highs like Pioneers. I have these driven by my factory head unit and they sound great, but seem to lack bass. I'm probably going to change the head unit out and possibly add an Alpine Power Pack to increase the power to the speakers and get a better equalizer to dial in more bass. Had these in a previous car with a JVC head unit and they were excellent so hopefully the head unit solves the issue.

Pros: Clean highs and mids

Cons: Recommend use of an aftermarket head unit with these to get some extra bass out of them.

Crutchfield provided the speaker mounting bracket adaptor and wiring harness adaptor with purchase - no splicing and installed in both front doors under an hour (no power door locks or windows made the job a little easier). Much better sound over the junk stock speakers.

Pros: great sound - worked as advertised

TOO awesome!!!

Written By John Paul, Albuquerque, NM on Tuesday, April 24, 2012

I have a 2012 Chevy Cruze LT without the Pioneer upgrade. I had 4 of these speakers installed into the front and back doors to replace the factory speakers. I had a local audio store put them in for me. The sound is great for being connected to a factory radio. They sound so good that I can't wait to add an amp to them. I want to keep the factory radio, so my next step is to put in a sound processor ( A sound processor is needed to hook up an amp to a factory radio in most cases. ) and an alpine amp up to them. This is when I will really be able to show the quality of these speakers.

Pros: They sound great even with just a factory radio at all levels of volume because they are 2 - 80 watts RMS power.

Cons: None!

Kind of disappointed

I was excited to get these installed with my new Alpine deck and rear Alpine speakers, and I saw that these were rated really well, but the sound quality is nowhere near what I expected. I previously had Rockford Fosgate speakers in the car I just sold, which sounded great, but these Alpine speakers sound exactly the same as my factory speakers I just replaced for these. I am hoping there's a way I can return these and get different one's installed without having to pay a bunch of money.

clear and crisp

Great upgrade to my sound system. Alpine is my speaker of choice hands down.

Pros: Great speakers for the money!

Cons: Nothing bad to say. Installation was a breeze. Great sound before I even had the door cover back on.

Love them!

I have a Infintit g35 and I have the alpine 6.5 component in the front and these in the rear. I know it says they will not fit in the rear but with a little work they will fit. Anyways, these are very good! I love them! I have my mids and highs powered by a jl4500 and the power works great! These are very sharp, and the highs sound amaizing!

The mounting brackets sent for the 02 and up Nissan Frontier XE did not fit and the speakers are deeper than oe and rattle against window. Took the universal thicker mounting brackets and had to do a lot of altering to make them work but speaker still rattles against window on drivers side. Lost a lot of volumn with the Alpine speakers compared to stock. Not really happy with the speakers but I do like the Alpine cda105 unit.

I just installed these in my 97' 4runner Limited and after a few mods to fit the size (moved up from 5 1/4), this speakers bring my back seat alive. I have these ran on a Alpine MRX-F30 with a matching Alpine SPS-610C front set of components and with it only turned to about a quater power and set at 45 Hz it really fills the space and cuts out all outside sounds when I need it too.

Only issue about these is the same with all the rest you MUST BREAK THESE IN!! If you try to force them to run at top power with an amp right away you will end up blowing them in no time. Let these warm up, they may take a little time but before long they will hit strong mids and clear highs better than most of the rival brands.

Great Speakers

Put these in the rear doors of a 2011 Kia Sorento, and man...soooo much clearer...Bass response is pretty good. Definately worth it.

Installed in the rear of my 11' Cruze Eco. Sound improved 100%. No amp installed. Not needed. Exactly what I wanted.

Pretty darn good

Written By andy, indianapolis, IN on Monday, May 02, 2011

great speakers! i used these to replace the 6x9s in my grand am. They aren't
amplified, but they are really loud and clear. they have a good amount of bass
(nothing compared to a 6x9), but the mids and highs are awesome. overall I'm
really impressed the only thing I would change is that I might run bass blockers
on them. they don't come with speaker grills btw, but who needs them!
