Great speaker

I have the JL RD400/4 amp powering 2 of these in the front, 2 of the same model coaxials in back of a crew cab Chevy. I was underwhelmed when first trying them out but decided to put some 10x10 sheets of dynamat around all of the speaker cutouts. Apparently they were losing energy before because just from doing that, wasn't sure if I would still be adding a sub. (Still did, can't get around that) I have to say, I can't listen to it loud enough to distort these, they are so clear with highs, mids, and semi-lows, I enjoy driving again. Good speaker.

Mids and highs are much more crisp than the stock speakers in my 2016 WRX. Set the tweeter to 0db as they come +3db from factory. Sounded to bright for my liking but might be ok for others.

Great upgrade to factory speakers. Paired it with a alpine amplifier to get maximum potential out of the speakers.

Good overall component system

Lives up to the Alpine name with sound quality and clarity. Highs are crisp and not too bright, mid-bass is punchy and tight. Small size of crossovers makes it easy to tuck away in small places, including behind most body panels. Be aware however, that because these components have "in-line" crossovers (speaker wire from amp goes to woofers, then from woofers to crossovers via a second set of terminals), they are best utilized for a component system where the woofer and tweeter are both in the doors. Using my factory tweeter location in the top corners of my dash meant I had to run the speaker wire from the woofer through the door jam to the crossovers in the car, which added a major layer of complexity. A component system with typical cross-overs (one input from amp, and two outputs for woofer and tweeter) would've allowed me to tap into the factory wiring behind the dash and made for an easier install. But overall, a very good product for the price point.

Denver

Finally got these installed this weekend, and as I anticipated these are very solid components. I have them running on an old Alpine MRVF407 bridged, so roughly 100W RMS to each of the pairs. The doors are well sound deadened, and have a layer of dampening material to help any residual rattle and road noise. That being said, I have been very impressed with the clarity and range of these speakers, mid bass is very good (due to good door prep, I have to think), and the Tweeters are level adjustable a bit which is really nice if you don't like them too bright, or want to attenuate them even a little bit. I am planning to run these guys active with the Alpine signal processor, so i am interested to see just how much better they can be with even better ability to tweak and tune the sound. But with a little work to ensure a quality install, these are very nice right out of the box. Next up is the RA60F to run these and their cousin 2-ways in the rear (convinced they will sound better with this Amp right off the bat), and the RA75M to run the Type R 12 that is currently in the back. Very nice series indeed Alpine, excited to get this all together with the signal processor... Cheers to great sound....

Pros: Really quality sound for the price Small Crossover for easy placement

Cons: May be a little bright in the tweeter for some people- its adjustable, but as others have mentioned they are bright.

Worcester

Alpine newest type r series components have changed quite a bit since last year, The woofer has a completely new design , and the tweeter although looking the same has also been changed, the result is a speaker that sounds hollow and cheap. the R-S65C from last year sound much better then the R-S65C.2 across the board, much smoother, more natural .

Pros: easy install

Cons: cheap sounding, hollow, bright.
