About the Alpine R-S65C
Upgrade with Alpine excellence
Upgrade with Alpine excellence
Choosing Alpine for your upgrade is like choosing chocolate at the ice cream counter — it's a classic for a reason. You can't go wrong with Alpine's undying commitment to quality sound and attention to detail, and their thunderous R-Series component speakers deliver the goods when your urge to crank the volume is unstoppable.
This R-S65 6-1/2" component speaker system features a hybrid fiber woofer cone that satisfies your need for strong bass response. A deluxe surround allows consistent, extended cone movement that pushes a lot of air for high-impact sound and guarantees a long life in your car doors. And when it comes to the highs, a 1" separate silk tweeter brings on a level of smoothness that enhances your music with detail, depth, and no shrillness. Alpine includes a pair of external crossovers that are compact enough to easily stash away in most nooks or crannies.
Handles up to 100 watts
Alpine has designed these components to work perfectly with your car stereo, but they'll really come into their own when you power them with an outboard amp. Power handling up to 100 watts RMS ensures you can get big, dynamic sound and plenty of volume out of these sturdy speakers. So, prepare yourself for a no-regrets sound upgrade.

Woofer Mounting: Although Alpine describes the woofers' size as 6-1/2, without adapter brackets the woofers fit many standard 6-3/4 applications. Using the two types of adapter brackets included, they can be mounted in a wide variety of 6-1/2, 6-3/4, 5x7, and 6x8 applications. Please enter you vehicle information to confirm fit.
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.
Tweeter Mounting Options: The tweeters come installed in a swiveling flush-mount housing. You can also install the tweeters behind factory grilles using the included stealth mount brackets. The stealth mount brackets can be top or bottom mounted. The installed tweeter dimensions are:
|Flush Mount (swivel)||Factory Location (bottom mount)||Factory Location (top mount)|
|Frame Diameter||2.277"||1.723" x 2.5"||1.723" x 2.5"|
Crossovers: The R-S65C features low-pass crossovers attached to each woofer's input terminal and separate high-pass crossovers in-line between the woofers and tweeters. Because the crossovers are separate, the system can be bi-amped. Two-sided tape is included to mount the high-pass crossovers and their dimensions are:
- Width: 2.475" (2.686" including wire)
- Height: 0.96"
- Depth: 1.27"
Tweeter Attenuation: Each crossover has four tweeter level options, allowing you to precisely tune the high frequencies to the car interior and tweeter placement. Using the supplied jumpers select 0dB (no attenuation), -2dB, -4dB, or -6dB.
