Enjoy stellar sound

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.

Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

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

  • component speaker system includes two woofers, two tweeters, and two built-in crossovers
  • 6-3/4" mineral-fortified polypropylene woofer cone with rubber surround
  • woofer fits 6-1/2" and 6-3/4" speaker openings
  • 1" silk dome tweeter
  • power range: 2-80 watts RMS (240 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 70-22,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 88 dB
  • top-mount depth: 2-1/4"
  • grilles not included
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

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.

Perfect match to a Veloster

Written By APR, Indiana on Saturday, October 24, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers are perfectly driven by the factory dimension audio system (whatever wattage it is, I've found conflicting reports) without needing an amp, in a Veloster Turbo. Thats kind of a rare find. I normally expect to have to bypass the factory amp in my cars whenever I swap out the speakers. Its hard to find good information on what speakers fit this role for the car on the internet, but trust me. You will get so much more clarity if you use these when (and not if) the factory speakers blow. They were junk. And only 2 years old! In any case. You also will not need to worry about dynamatting or deadening, as the car is pretty well insulated and my pretty critical ears don't detect any.

The job to install them however, should be left to a professional. In the installers words "If I knew how hard this was going to be beforehand, I would have charged you double". It took 5 hours to install the door speakers and rear speakers. Apparently the veolster is not the easiest thing to take apart. It seems that manufacturers have made what should be simple into a gigantic task that, even if you're good with the tools, has a lot of room for mistakes.

Pros: Fantastic bass clarity, not booming. Great treble and highs. Tested with a variety of music (cannibal corpse, blink 182, orbital) to try and find something to complain about. I couldnt find anything to complain about.

Cons: I can't stress this enough. Pay somebody to do the install if you have one of these cars.

Very clean. Have these in a 2010 Nissan Versa, hooked up to a Pioneer Class D 4 Channel amp pushing 100 watts RMS per channel giving these components the juice they need. I'm blown away at how crisp these are!!!!

all said and done, good speakers at reasonable price. installation was a bit of nightmare, as the instructions, are pretty much a caveman drawing. ended up having go to store to buy parts, also you need a hole saw to cut panel to make tweeters work !

Pros: good quality speaker

Cons: less than adequate instructions

Amazing sound especially for the money

Written By Chaz, Florida on Friday, September 11, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed these in my '99 Durango and did it with relative ease. The sound is amazing and is exponentially better than the stock system. The speakers pack a pretty good amount of bass, and the tweeters really sound nice. Just an overall amazing upgrade especially for the money, and the install while time consuming is pretty straight forward.

Pros: Great sound, great price

Cons: None

get what you pay for

Written By 93jeepyj, Missouri on Saturday, August 08, 2015

i bought these speakers three years ago and put them in my 98 silverado. I had to do some mods to fit the tweeters in the factory location. The sound great but today I pulled my door cover off to replace my window motor and noticed the the out side surrounding on the woofer has started to fall apart. they still sound ok but not something I was expecting, an alpine product starting to fall apart after three years. I have never cranked the tunes up so there should be no reason for them to be tearing

Good speakers for the money

Written By Mike T, Alabama on Sunday, June 14, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed in my 1998 GMC Sierra Z71 pickup.These Alpine speakers have the quality sound that you would expect and were reasonably priced.

Pros: Very clear sound and easy to hook up.

Cons: The tweeters would not fit in my door where the factory tweeters were located, so I left them out. I had to use an adapter to mount the regular speakers in the door and the adapter didn't match up right with the mount area on the speakers. The speakers grille mounting holes lined up outside the diameter of the adapter when I went to mount the speakers. It was very frustrating but I eventually got the speakers mounted to the adapter. Be prepared to drill some holes in the adapter to make it work.

They fit my 06 rear doors perfect. Alpine has aways had a great reputation....guess what...they should. These things have a super lot of head room solid base and realy clear highs. and the rice is better than one could expect. Cant beat these. and they can handle the power without clipping out at high volumes.

Pros: Cant say enough good about them.

Cons: It takes a bit of skill to mount the remote tweeters.

Written By Michael, California on Sunday, March 01, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

They do and do not fit. There were no installation instructions and so you have to figure it out. After you figure out the spacer situation, the door speakers fit well. As for the pillar speakers, you have to be creative to get them to fit. It would have been nice to have some installation instructions. Once I completed the install, the speakers sounded great.

Pros: Great sound.

Cons: No easy installation instructions.

Crutchfield response on Monday, March 02, 2015 We're sorry to hear that you had some difficulty with the installation. We send out the vehicle-specific installation instructions ahead of the order (as an attachment to your shipping confirmation email) so that you can familiarize yourself with the installation requirements before receiving your order. And if you ever run into any problems during the installation, don't hesitate to call our Tech Support team. They're standing by, seven days a week, and their help is free, as a benefit to our customers.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed in 2008 Honda . Also changed OEM head unit to a Pioneer FH-X720BT. Much better than my old audio system but I had nowhere to go but up. Crutchfield supplied everything I needed. Should have done this years ago.

Pros: Sounds so much better than the OEM speakers, especially in the mid range. I don't have sub woofers or any expensive components but these have been a great improvement. Thats all I was looking for.

Cons: none i can think of.

Alpine 6.5 seperates Type S

Written By Greg, Oklahoma on Monday, February 16, 2015

The mid bass is fine and clear, just what I expected. But the separate tweeters are way to bright. I had to turn down the amp and turn the treble on the head unit nearly off. They need a better crossover on the tweeters, they are way to over powering and bright.

Pros: Better than the factory I had which isn't saying much

Cons: Lacking a decent crossover for the separate tweeters.

Good sounding speakers

Written By Dave, New Jersey on Wednesday, February 11, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For the most part these are pretty good speakers. In my current install they are not powered by a separate amp but an alpine UTE 52bt head unit, in this setup they are not very impressive on the low end. I added a kenwood ksc sw11 powered sub to make up for this since I don't want to lose space to a typical sub install, this has made up for the low end deficiency pretty well and there is a nice full sound now. My other complaint is that the highs are a bit brittle and were quite honky before spending time getting the eq right. The tweeters seem a bit overpowered for the woofer so i plan to look into options for balancing that out. All in all these are good speakers but if I didn't have a head unit with a comprehensive eq I may feel differently. Even though the sound is quite good if I had it to do over I would try a different set.

Pros: Clean crisp sound particularly upper mid to high frequencies.

Cons: Low end weak and highs were brittle/tinny even painfully honky before spending time with the eq

Pretty Good, Pretty Good!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Super easy to install. Love that Crutchfield throws in the harness so you can use your factory wiring for free. Fit my door perfectly. Figured out a good spot for the tweeter. Also cool that the tweeter is housed in a little swivel enclosure, works great for finding that sweet spot. I installed this with the alpine CDE-143BT head unit, and they sound great together.

Pros: -easy install -sounds great

Cons: none

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed these in a 2013 Honda Fit and they are amazing! The highs were a little bright until I turned on the auto volume leveling on my Pioneer head unit. Now they are perfect.

Pros: Component speaker with a great mid-bass and highs. Had everything to install the speakers from Crutchfield and alpine.

Cons: Had to drill holes in door to wire tweeter. Crutchfield install master sheet didn't mention that. No biggie.

Awesome Speakers! You won't be disappointed

Written By MKov608, Pensacola, FL on Thursday, January 01, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Car: '07 MINI Cooper; standard sound system. I'd buy these again in a heartbeat!

This component speaker set sounds 10X better than the factory speakers or my initial attempt to replace them! The Crutchfield representative I spoke with knew exactly what my frustrations were with the old speaker setup, and his recommendation concerning these Alpine speakers was spot on! Thanks!

Pros: The woofer fits in the doors w/ out an adapter, so the door panel fits back on correctly; the sound is much better than the JBLs I had. I made the mistake of going with 2 pairs of coaxial speakers in the doors. After reading the audio section on an internet website (MINI Forum), I read that two pairs of coaxial speakers can cause problems. Crossovers are mounted on the speakers, but there is an in-line component too, so don't forget to install it.

Cons: Cons: It took a little while to construct adapters for the tweeters using the universal plastic panel kit, but with the aid of my trusty Dremel tool and the 565 multipurpose cutting kit, the install came out perfectly. Installation instructions are nothing more that a series of cave-man drawings on the exterior of the box. Some text instructions to go along with the pictures would be nice.

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: None!

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

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

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!

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.

These speakers sound great! You get a lot of bang for your buck. And the built in crossover for the tweets fit just about any where. I totally recommend these speakers.

Pros: Great sound, and come with everything you need to mount the tweets

Cons: I haven't found any yet.

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

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

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

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'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 Speakers Ecellent

Replacing the factory speakers in a 2006 Honda Accord LX was the right thing to do. The difference in the sound quality was exceptional

Pros: Clarity and sound is crystal clear

Cons: Trouble with one tweeter two days after installation and I recommend purchasing aftermarket speaker cables instead of those sent with the speakers.that connect to the factory harness designed for a 2003-07 Honda Civic. purchasing speaker cables

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
