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 provide warm high notes that bring out the character of the instruments and vocals.

Grilles are not included; the factory grilles should be suitable for most applications.

Features

Poly-Mica Cone: Each SPS-517 speaker features a Poly-Mica cone and 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-517'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 5x7 or 6x8 speakers.

Shallow-Design: The shallow polymer frame allows easy installation in a wide range OEM locations.

Mounting: Using the included brackets the SPS-517s can be top or bottom mounted in a variety of 5x7 and 6x8 applications.

No Grilles: No grilles are included with these speakers.

Q
Hello, will this work as a rear speaker on my 2009 Ford Focus Coupe? It says my Focus will fit 6x8 but it doesn't show up for the back, only the front (which is also 6x8).

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The Alpine SPS-517 speakers won't fit in the rear, because the magnet diameter is too large to fit in the factory opening. You can more space to work with in the front, so they will fit there. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
