Our take on the Alpine SPS-610C

by Buck Pomerantz
Alpine

Why install component speakers?

A component speaker system gives you the best possible performance from your car audio system. A system consists of separate woofers, tweeters, and crossovers, each designed to cover one specific range of frequencies. As separate components, the woofer can move freely to deliver more powerful performance, while the tweeter can be custom-mounted in a better spot up closer to your ears, revealing a whole new world of detail. Separate crossovers are far superior to the simple filters wired into full-range speakers, so the components work together for smoother, more focused sound.

Alpine Authorized Online Dealer

The sonic specialists at Alpine optimize their SPS-610C 6-3/4" component 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. You can aim the separate silk dome tweeters toward you so that they deliver the strongest possible stereo image. Woofer 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.

Features

Poly-Mica Woofer Cones: Each woofer 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: The 1" wide-range silk dome tweeters offer clean, non-fatiguing sound even under extreme high frequency demands.

Tweeter Mounting Options: The tweeters can be flush mounted using the supplied flush mount bracket and ring. Once mounted, the tweeters can swivel approximately 30° for optimum imaging. The tweeters can also be mounted in factory tweeter locations behind factory tweeter grilles using the supplied stealth mounting bracket.

  Flush Mount (swivel) Factory Location (bottom mount) Factory Location (top mount)
Mounting Depth 0.663" 0.789" 0"
Mounting Height 0.440" N/A 0.806"
Cutout Diameter 2.004" 1.716" N/A
Frame Diameter 2.275" 2.668" 2.587"

Woofer Mounting: Without an adapter, the woofers 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 they 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.

Crossovers: The Alpine SPS-610C features low-pass crossovers attached to each woofer's input terminal and high-pass crossovers in-line with the tweeters' speaker wires.

Sounds great in two separate vehicles!

I have these in my 2008 Ext. Cab Silverado and my new 2014 Jetta TDI. They sound great in both cars. They are the only speakers that I recommend now. And they are fairly easy to install since the crossover is small and does not have to be mounted specifically. They sound great!
Pros:
Sound great! Not expensive for the quality. Sound great in any car. (I guess I said they sound great twice, whoops!) Crossovers are great.
Cons:

Good bass response!

Written By Isaac T, Stevens Point, WI on Tuesday, July 15, 2014
 
I find the bass response from Alpine's Type S speakers to be excellent! Always impressed, even when running off a headunit's internal amp power (20x4). Off of the power pack, or even better a full 4ch amp these really come alive. They're very smooth, BUT a little brighter than their coax-counterparts. Mounting the tweeters are ear level on-axis can be a little harsh as some reviews mentioned, best to mount a little lower, like midway in the door panel of following the windshield's curve. This becomes less apparent when amped properly anyway, though. The crossover aren't anything to write home about either, but are easy to fit, of course since they're in-line. the tweeters also offer lots of mounting options. I like Alpine flush mount hardware more than almost any other brand.
Pros:
Excellent bass from a speaker Good price and power handling Crossovers are small Works OK from headunit power, works great on an amp's power Come with Chrysler mounting brackets Good mounting hardware for tweeter
Cons:
Crossover aren't amazing Tweeters can be tinny depending on mounting

Fabulous! These speakers, coupled with the 61/2" Alpine coaxials replaced the stock speakers in my wife's 2013 Mini Cooper S convertible and made a remarkable improvement in the overall sound of the system. The difference is night and day. The install was made by a local retailer.

excellent for the money

Written By bIllL, Cleveland Ohio on Thursday, June 26, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought these for a 2012 outback. The stock front speakers already had tweeters in the dash and mid/woofer in the door. The factory speakers have a single pair of wires leaving the head unit and somewhere in the dash they separate and the tweeter and woofer are wired in parallel. I bought these because I wanted to use the factory wiring as-is without having to mount a separate crossover. Overall I am happy with the ease of install and sound, I would have given a 4.5 if possible.
Pros:
easy install and good sound, more bass than I would have thought
Cons:
treble is a little tinny as others have stated but I wouldn't change them out.

Worse than stock

Written By Ralph, Richmond, CA on Sunday, April 27, 2014
 
Purchased these for the front door with some SPS-510's for the rear. They sound worse than the stock speakers in my 2001 4runner Limited, muddled is the best description I can come up with. Using an Alpine head unit and a Rockford Fosgate PBR300x4. Swapped the paper-coned 14 year old stock speakers back in and they sound so much better. The Tweeters also are extremely tinny sounding and overpowering as others have said. I tried to muffle them by putting some foam in front of them and that helped a little.
Cons:
Tweeter is too loud and tinny. Cones are muddled sounding. Installation required cutting and drilling.

Great for tweeters in the A-Pillar

Written By Sam, Madison, WI on Sunday, March 30, 2014
 
I loved this pair of speakers! I had them in my Frontier for 3 years with daily abuse and they held up perfectly. Let them break in and you will love them too.
Pros:
In-line crossover means you won't have to run a ton of wires if your tweeter is in the A-pillar or dash instead of the door. Bass response is good (Once they're broken in) Sound good with minimal power (14RMS from deck)
Cons:
Tweeters were a little bit harsh when wired in with the woofers normally. In my truck I was able to wire the tweeters as the front and the woofers as the rear and then fade to the rear a bit to get them how I liked them.

Performance as expected

Written By Radio Randy, Colville, WA on Saturday, March 29, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This system was a great improvement over the old factory speakers. Much tighter base and I can actually hear the highs, now. If I were to do it all, correctly, I would install an amp because the speakers need more power, than the original system, to sound their best.
Pros:
Relatively easy installation. Greatly improved base response.
Cons:
Hot gluing the tweeters into the factor grill locations was a downside and the woofers had to be placed, just so, to ensure the screws would hold in all four places.

Great Component Speaker for Lowe Price

Written By AlD, Poughkeepsie, Ny on Friday, September 27, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I currently have these attached to the factory head unit of my 2012 GMC Sierra - and are a significant improvement over the factory paper speakers (which were not horrific - considering this is a basic Work Truck). I did not use the factory tweeter mounting positions, but rather I drilled a 2" hole into the door 'sails', which allows you aim the tweeters at the occupants, rather than the windshield.

The factory head drives these just fine for now ... but I will be installing a dinosaur Hafler amp to wake the system up a little. Will also be looking to upgrade the rear pillar speakers behind the front seats (standard cab) at that point too.
Pros:
Neutral, well balanced sound...not harsh or boomy. Reasonably priced.
Cons:
None yet ...

Does not work well with factory Stereo

Written By J.O., Austin TX on Saturday, September 07, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Does not work well with factory Stereo. Sounds "tinny". The rear speakers recommended by Crutchfield work great. I called tech support and the Tech new right off the bat that my factory system would not drive these speakers. Hmmm.... Not very pleased. Now I have to buy a new stereo and an adapter for the steering wheel controls.
Cons:
In spite of recommendation, these do not work well with the factory stereo.

Great speakers for the price. Very pleasant balance!

Written By Gyakusetsu, Denver, CO on Wednesday, September 04, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers are a great upgrade from my factory ones. After overhauling everything else about my system, I figured it was time to finally ditch the cardboard Volkswagen 20-watt speakers and get something that could handle more power.

I can easily say I was not at all disappointed by these! the sound quality is very clear and detailed with the separate tweeters. Bass response is a little lacking, but nothing a subwoofer can't fill in for you (mid-bass is very nice). I have these hooked in to a 75-watt/channel amplifier and they BUMP! Even with the volume up as high as I can stand it, the soundscape is clear and full and the dynamic range is at a comfortable level that doesn't pain you to listen to. Silk tweeters balanced very nicely via the crossover.

Crossover is easy to mount/ziptie to something in your door. I stuck mine to some existing window control wires and have heard no interference when using the windows. The crossovers are pretty well shielded and let the tweeter actually produce a decent amount of sound without over-emphasizing the super high-end treble that makes my ears hurt (anyone with plastic tweeters knows what I mean... yuck!!).

I know these aren't the greatest possible speakers in existence (I wish Klipsch made car speakers), but for the money, you'll definitely be satisfied.

Best example of clarity: analog/vinyl-esque clicks and pops... made me think something was wrong with how I mounted the tweeters... but they're just that good!
Pros:
clear, loud, well built, comes with TONS of extra mounting hardware for any situation. Foam adhesive pads and circles were a nice touch and hold my tweeters in place very nicely in factory locations.
Cons:
Tweeter wire is VERY long. I suppose it is better than being too short, but I had to get clever with zip ties and tucking to get it all out of the way. Kind of a con... but if you ever have to disconnect the terminals, you have to insert a flat tool in the terminal connectors to get them undone or else they will NOT come off.

Alpine Speakers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is my first time buying Alpine speakers, but I've always heard nothing but good things about Alpine and these speakers are no different. I've had them installed for a little over a week now with no issues. Got an Alpine Receiver matched with the Alpine Power Pack for my door speakers. Have these installed in the front doors of my Chevy Silverado Ext. Cab. Easy install. Speaker harnesses make it a clean install with no wire splicing. These things are loud!! Lots of clarity with no distortion, even at high listening levels, which you could expect from a good set of component speakers such as these. I have a 10" sub @ 200 Watts RMS in a sealed enclosure, so I'm not using these door speakers for bass. This system meets my listening standards. I listen to everything from metal, to rock, to country, and sometimes the occasional hip hop song. I like it very loud, crisp, clean sounding like it was meant to be heard. Arrived when expected. Great price. Very satisfied with my purchase. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

Big improvement over the factory speakers

Written By James, Buffalo, NY Installed in a 2011 Chevy Malibu on Wednesday, August 21, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
What a difference these speakers make! I've installed many speakers in my vehicles over the years, Sony, Polk, Pioneer, and Kenwood. These Alpines are by far the best. The speakers are very crisp and accurate. They're great for acoustical music and vocals. Instillation of the woofer was a breeze with Crutchfield's speaker mounting bracket. I stealth mounted the tweeters in the factory location. It did required some minor cutting of the plastic around the factory speaker bracket, but it wasn't a big deal. I then used some epoxy to glue the Alpine bracket to the inside of the pillar and the tweeter slipped into the bracket. You can't go wrong with these speakers.The sound is phenomenal and the installation was relatively easy.
Pros:
Great speaker for the money.
Cons:
None

Nice sound upgrade

Written By JFM, Colorado on Friday, August 16, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers provided a nice upgrade to the factory VW speaker system in the 2004 Jetta wagon. Fuller bass range and crisper mids/highs than the OEM stuff (even with the factory Monsoon head-unit/amp).

Installation was fairly straightforward except for a few variances from the MasterSheet. For the front doors, these speakers are not compatible with the adapters provided-- but an easy workaround is as follows: -per the MS, remove the factory speakers and place the speed clips (with a bit of hack-saw ingenuity, not mentioned in the MS) -the speakers come with mounting brackets/rings ; break off the tabs along the outside of the "ring"; use a properly sized drill bit to drill out the threads of the brass mounting eyes. -align the mounting slots on the speaker rim over the brass holes and those two things over the speed clips. -use the long screws included with the speaker kit to attach the speaker + mounting ring to the door (via speed clips)

It is also possible to replace the tweeters in the "sail" with the included tweeters. Remove the sail (one screw and a clip). Use a knife to separate the in situ tweeter (this an irreversible process) from the sail. Use contact cement or similar adhesive to attach the tweeter to the sail. Re-wire with your choice of connectors. Rear door tweeters can be replaced in a similar but not identical fashion.

Rear door installation of the larger speakers is as in the MS.
Pros:
Great sound and a lovely upgrade. Plays nice and clear at higher volumes.
Cons:
Slightly more vehicle modification than expected, but not too difficult.

Excellent speakers

Written By ButchE, Mount Olive, AL on Saturday, August 03, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great sounding component speakers. Installed them in my 01 GMC Sierra, replacing factory speakers. Bass speakers mounted easily with provided bracket. Tweeters were a little more involved as the factory tweeters were integrated into their mounting. I used a rotary tool to remove the tweeter from the bracket, then mounted the new one with one of the many mounting options provided from Crutchfield.
Pros:
Good bass for the size of the speaker 6 3/4 overall the set delivers a nice crisp sound.
Cons:
None

Bright with bass at right settings

Written By joc1394, Hagerstown, MD on Monday, July 15, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought these to replace the stock "Premium" Pioneer speakers installed in my 2007 Honda Civic EX Coupe. The stock pioneers were more than adequate, considering that most stock sound systems are not that great. However, after almost 140,000 miles of use when the stock headunit became possessed, it was time to overhaul the entire system. I hot glued the tweeters into the stock locations in the dash, which has worked well for over a month. These speakers sound very good, although I needed to carefully set the crossover on my new JVC headunit around 60Hz to get the best bass out of these. If you don't set the crossover and send all frequencies to these, they don't sound quite as good. If you're looking for better bass, there are better choices out there. You will probably need to have a sub installed with these to get the real low-end.

NOTE: 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.
Pros:
Crisp, bright sound with just a touch of bass with proper crossover settings. Excellent clarity.
Cons:
Just a touch of bass...you'll want a subwoofer to go with these.

Required a bit of bodging to get the tweeters to work in the factory openings (on a curved section of door panel) otherwise the only thing I would've liked is access to phone support during the evening hours on a Friday. However the speakers sound much better than the tired OEM ones that were there.

Alpine spa-610c

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Replaced my factory spkrs in my 2008 crew cab chevy 3500 (without Bose) front doors w/pillar tweeters, when I purchased these I thought I would have to add speaker wire between woofer & tweeter ,turned out I didn't have to. I removed my old tweeter , used a hot glue gun to hold new tweeter in place (seems to work just fine) I still have factory deck but these sound a lot better than factory. I also replaced rear speakers at the same time , the factory deck don't seem to push much wattage to rear channels, but altogether it sounds better than factory by far !! If I upgrade to a new deck and a 4 chan. amp (around 50 amps per ch.) I think it would improve a lot , and get full perf. out of all 4 speakers . But sounds good now w/ no distortion even at high volume ranges
Pros:
Easy install even with running new wire to new tweeter.Sounds great !
Cons:
None

06 Tacoma Double Cab Front Door Install

Written By Bill, VA on Wednesday, June 12, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These Alpine component speakers are sounding great. I listen to everything from Metallica and Rage to Waylon and Cash to Eminem. All of these different genres sound good! Installing the woofers was a breeze. The tweeters on the other hand took some time. I was able to take tin snips and cut the factory tweeter away from the bracket, then use a dremel to file down the pieces I cut. The Alpine tweeters fit through the opening and the lock nut screwed on and hold them in place very nicely. By doing this I didn't have to make a bracket, the factory one with the new tweeter went right back on the door. I mistakenly found out that if you cut the factory tweeter wire, at the speaker, tape the red and black wire off, and plug the factory tweeter harness back into the factory plug it came out of it, will allow the new tweeter and woofer to work by attaching the Alpine woofer and tweeter speakers together like they should be. I didn't have to cut, splice or connect any wiring other than from the factory tweeter I had taken apart anyway. Maybe just by having the factory tweeter harness connected keeps the speaker circuit in tact. All I know is it works! and sounds great! All the electric windows and door locks work too! lol
Pros:
Sound quality

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Installed these in the front doors of my 08 Ram 1500 Quad Cab. Drilled holes in the door panels for the tweeters and they installed very simply. Looks almost like stock. The treble is excellent, and the high mids are very clear and concise. Still tweaking the EQ settings on my stereo to get it perfect.
Pros:
Clear treble, and mids.
Cons:
Not quite so much lower mid bass levels. That's probably because I don't have it hooked up to an amp, just my aftermarket Jensen head unit. Factory speakers were louder, however didn't sound nearly as "complete"

2011 GMC Sierra Install

Written By AJB, Maquoketa, IA on Sunday, February 24, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great speakers for the money. No comparison to factory junk speakers after you install these youll see how terrible they are! Real crisp highs and mids and decent base. Wouldn't say its quite as nice as the Bose system in the Denali's that ive rode in, but not far behind with not having an amp and installing to a factory radio! Installation took a little time but wasnt terrible, running the speaker wire through rubber between the door and the A pillar is a tight fit but it will work. I wanted to mount the tweeters in the factory location so had to do that. A little modification was required to fit the tweeters to the widow pillars, trim the inside of the tweeter grill with a exacto and hot glue it in place it will just barely go in there but it looks like factory when its done. I paired these up with the two way 610s in the rear doors which were simple to install very happy with all of it sounds great!
Pros:
Sounds great real nice improvement for the price(front and back)
Cons:
Can't think of anything but a the time it takes to install plan a half day for the front anyway

2002 Chevy Camaro w/ Monsoon

Written By TrentM, Miami, FL on Saturday, February 02, 2013
 
Bought some to go in the front door and back seat locations, and they fit and sound great in both locations! The back seat location will only use the mid-range speakers. Once again, however, Crutchfield is incorrect. For the front door locations, you do not have to bypass the Monsoon amp. The stock speakers are mounted coaxially, but are set up as component speakers, so they get both a mid-range and tweeter signal. Just look on Google for the wiring diagrams so you know which wires are for the tweeter signal, and which are for the mid-range.

Couldn't ask for more

Written By Dan, Des Moines, IA on Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought these speakers to put in the front door of my 98 Chevy Prism, and I could not be more impressed. I custom mounted the tweeters in the top of the door using a 2" hole saw to cut a spot for them. The tweeters were far easier to mount than I was expecting because of the ring that they came with to screw on behind the door. All I had to do was cut the hole, and screw on the ring! It improved my sound stage drastically and added an incredible amount of clarity to my music that I didn't even know I was missing before.

FYI I have subwoofers so I have no idea how these speakers perform on the lower end of the bass. However, speakers this size aren't made for super low frequencies so that wasn't something I was looking for to begin with.
Pros:
Fantastic clarity in both the high, midrange, and mid-bass frequencies. Everything was fairly easy to install.
Cons:
The mounting bracket Crutchfield sent didn't work with these speakers because the screws included were too short. However, I was able to use the bracket that came in the Alpine box. Everything worked out great in the end.

Installed these speakers in all 4 door panels, in my 2008 Chevy HD Crew Cab. I flush mounted the tweeters towards the top of the door panel, which required a 2" hole drill bit. I replaced the factory radio with an Alpine 2 DIN stereo (CDE-W235BT). I am powering the new components with a 4 channel Alpine amp, which is rated at 75 watts per channel. For a subwoofer, I chose the JL Audio 8" microsub powered by a 300 watt Alpine mono amp. These speakers sound awesome. The sound is truly amazing over the factory Bose system they replaced. I couldn't be happier.
Pros:
Great price, sound, and quality
Cons:
None that I can think of.

Awesome Highs

Written By AdrianM, Coachella Valley, CA on Tuesday, July 17, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers were a bit of a pain to install. Alpine sends no directions and the supplied Master Sheet was less than helpful, except for pulling off the door panels. For my model of SUV, 2000 Durango, I had to use the factory spacers and take apart the stock assembly. No big deal but as a first timer and no directions it took me some time to figure out what to do. The left window bracket will prevent you from installing speaker in the front door so you'll need the spacer. I put these in with a 4 channel amp. I turned the amp all the way to zero across the board during the install. When I first turned on the stereo I was thinking, "Yeah that sounds alright." Then I tuned the amp and what a difference, it was like opening the door to a concert in truck. For the rear doors I put in Polk Audio's DXi650s. They are a great compliment to each other as the Polk pick up a bit more of the base. I'll be adding 2 Kicker 10's to this system with it's own dedicated amp splitting the power. Half going to each 10. These speakers will eventually be used to only pick up the mid's and highs. If you plan to use these speakers definitely get an amp to power them, your factory deck won't cut it, and you'll be glad you did. Also, the directional tweets are a nice touch, but you'll need to be creative about where you're going to mount included crossover.
Pros:
Great sound, lots of extra parts to help with install
Cons:
No directions from Alpine of Crutchfield to assist with install. You may need to be creative.

Alpine SPS-610C

Written By claytown24, Landenberg, PA on Wednesday, July 11, 2012
 
I bought the Alpine SPS-610C and Alpine SPS-610 speakers a few weeks ago, upgrading all front and rear door factory GM speakers in my 2006 Pontiac Torrent. I replaced the front component speakers with the Alpine SPS-610C, and the rear with the Alpine SPS-610 two-ways. The sound difference is amazing! I am pleased with the difference. I am totally happy with my Alpine SPS-610C speakers, but one thing I am not happy about is the tweeters. As someone has already mentioned, the tweeters are almost too overpowering. Not enough bass and too much treble for me personally. Also, when I turned the volume up on my head unit (Pioneer DEH-3400 UB), the tweeters would make this annoying crackling noise- I could barely turn my speakers up past 30 on the volume level- even after reducing treble. After trying to mess with the audio settings for quite some time, I finally gave up on the tweeters and put the stock tweeters back in. The stock ones do not crackle, even with the volume up, which kinda upset me because aftermarket tweeters, I would think, should be able to handle that kind of power.

Other than that, the woofers are great, and the two-ways are great as well.
Pros:
Great sound, woofers & two-way speakers can handle well at high volume
Cons:
Tweeters aren't the best

Excellent upgrade from stock "Premium" sound system. I used SPS-610C with XTC baffles in the front doors and SPS-406 with 800hz Bass blockers, XTC baffles in the rear, retained the stock radio. Sounds great!! THANKS Kevin. As soon as I save up my allowance I'll be getting a new receiver. an Alpine CDE-HD137BT maybe.
Pros:
Easy to install. The hardest part was getting the door panels off, with breaking them and repairing the damage a previous owner did. Everything is included from Crutchfield, wiring adapters, generic instructions. Excellent customer service. THANK YOU THANK YOU
Cons:
Alpines instructions. REALLY pictures only, I can read. Lots of left over parts with NO explanation as to where, when or why to use them.

Great Value

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I was looking for an upgrade from the stock 6.5" speakers and I decided to get these. They are easy to install yourself, though don't count on the directions packet as modifications are not included in the instructions. However, the tweeters are small and fit nicely between the metal door frame and the vinyl covering, and the screw on retainer makes installation a cinch. I would recommend using a drill press if you nee to drill a hole and you will need a 2" cookie cutter bit. Oh, and get the grills. Highly recommended for the price.
Pros:
good value, clear, thoughtful setup, easy installation

2009 Acura TSX Tech Package

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have a 2009 Acura TSX Technology Package. If you too have one you understand the need for upgraded speakers. The Alpine SPS-610C is a great upgrade. The sound is so much clearer. I did not need an aftermarket amplifier. The Alpine speakers are completely compatible with my factory set up and the installation is simple. Everything still looks stock.

Great Speaker Replacement for OEM Nissan

Written By Dryon, Tenn on Tuesday, May 29, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These replaced the OEM speakers in a 1998 Nissan King Cab. The original speakers stopped working so I thought I'd try this as a replacement. Install was easy and sound better than the OEM ever did.
Pros:
All good
Cons:
None

GREAT SPEAKERS!!!

Written By MichaelH210, Houston, TX on Saturday, March 31, 2012
 
I must say, these are quite the speakers. They are constructed very nicely and you can tell from the sound that they produce! WOW! I shopped around for a WHILE reading many reviews on various speakers and finally went with these. Boy, am i glad i did! For this price, i dont think you can find a better speaker out there! and to my surprise these speakers have a very decent amount of mid and high bass, but the low is lacking a little, although that is expected with a 6 1/2" speaker! I have these in my front doors along with the 2-way 610's in the back doors, all powered by my aftermarket sony deck. Overall a great buy and i would definitely not hesitate to buy again. and again. and again!!! You can definitely be confident in your purchase of these speakers!

Sounds great

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Speakers fit well and sound very good. Install took longer than I had hoped, but notes said some customization would need to be done. First door took a couple of hours the second door took 20 minutes!
Pros:
Sound good and had all the tools to make them fit. I would buy again.
Cons:
Tweeter was a complete new install cutting a hole in the door trim -- looks great though. Took a while to figure out.

Alpine SPS-610C

Written By BR, Louisiana on Monday, February 20, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I just have them running on a factory deck so I know the quality is going to subpar. Overall they sound great even on factory setup. Can't wait for my deck to see what they can do, but sound is really crisp no rattle they handle miss very well, the tweeters are crystal clear for your highs. The speakers will handle some bass if your not running them on a dedicated amp. Verdict is great product for the money if you want clean sound without breaking the bank.
Pros:
Clean sound for price
Cons:
Tweeter crossover kinda bulky.

Nissan Bose Replacment

Written By John, Dell Rapids, SD on Sunday, February 12, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Excellent sound quality, far better than the "old" Bose they replaced.
Pros:
Dollar for dollar an excellent value. Great sound quality for the dollar. If you're going to add Amps, I would take a step or two up from these.
Cons:
None really.

Awesound

Written By Leon B., Dallas,TX on Friday, October 14, 2011
 
After careful consideration and a little help from the audio geeks at "The Field" I made the purchase. Installation was the easiest in my 2002 Nissan Pathfinder (rear doors) the adapters were spot on perfection. Now, the sound...the sound is great highs, mid's and lows are all showcased with this pair. Once the wife gives the green light they will be my choice for the front doors as well. Get this set and enjoy your music all over again.

too bright, too sibilant

Written By RonO, Atlanta on Saturday, August 27, 2011
 
The woofers sound fine, but in my install the tweeters are in sail panels. The tweeters are overpowering the woofers and even the subwoofer in my install. Reducing the treble setting to -5 helped, but the balance of the tweeters to the woofer is still way out of balance. The tweeters are very sibilant. After a couple weeks of installing them, I built -6 db L pad circuits to tone down the tweeters. This has helped to improve the balance. Perhaps if the tweeter were mounted closer to the woofer, it may improve the balance out of the box. If I had it to do again, I think I'd look for component speakers with a real crossover network that has a built in l pad adjustment.

Great Quality

Written By Doug, US on Monday, August 15, 2011
 
I must say this kit was a big jump from pioneers or anything I had before the quality was outstanding, it comes with a lot of different parts incase you didn't have tweeters before and your mounting some for the first time along with a lot of brackets and things to help the install. No real instructions that I could find but I have installed before so it wasn't a problem. One major thing though please if you are amping these do not push them right away, wear them in little by little till you get the right power and pitch you desire otherwise they are bond to blow. Another thing, just because they say peak 240 don't put that kind of strain on them I have mine running at 160 watts at 45 Hz and they sound great.

Awesome upgrade from factory speakers

Written By Jim.D, Sydney Australia on Thursday, April 21, 2011
 
Installed the alpine sps 610c components in the front doors of 2008 ford falcon
using the factory head unit and they sound 300% better than stock speakers. They
have great highs mids and pretty good lows. Sound much better than i expected.
They compliment the sps 600 coaxials in the rear doors. Also have the ktp 445
45watt x 4 power pack amp. Would highly recommend these speakers for the price

2 questions already asked

How did everyone mount the inline crossovers on the tweeter wire? Did you all just let it hang? I don't see a good way to attach this to anything. [ Alyssa  Mar 08, 2014 ]
9 answers
  • I just let it lie in-line with the wire path. [ CHARLES G   Mar 10, 2014 ]
  • What I did was put the crossover right on top of the plastic speaker adapter and actually used tape. Not the best solution, but I was more worried about getting it to stay there until I got the door panel back on. No issues after that. [ MATTHEW   Mar 10, 2014 ]
