About the Alpine SPS-57C2
Alpine's Type-S speakers combine outstanding materials and construction with an attractive price. Their efficient design provides powerful sound even when system power is low yet beefy internal parts ensure they can handle it when you crank the volume.
But powerful output doesn't count for much if you don't like what you're hearing. The SPS-57C2 5"x7" speakers are bound to please your ears pivoting silk dome tweeters direct clear highs to your ears without a hint of harshness. The aluminum-coated woofer cones move freely in the air-injected rubber surrounds for full, strong, and accurate bass response. Grilles are not included factory grilles are suitable for most installations.

Aluminum-coated Polypropylene Woofer Cones: Each speaker features an aluminum-coated polypropylene woofer. Aluminum adds strength and heat resistance to polypropylene, resulting in reduced distortion and improved reliability.
Air-injected Rubber Surrounds: For a smoother response and improved durability, the woofers use air-injected rubber surrounds.
Silk Dome Tweeters: Each speaker uses a 1" silk dome tweeter for smooth high frequencies. The tweeters are adjustable and will pivot approximately 15° to optimize imaging.
Mounting Rings: Without any adapter, the speakers fit a standard 5"x7" top mount opening. One of the supplied adapter rings allows the speakers to be installed in a standard 6"x8" opening and many special Ford openings. The other adapter rings allow bottom mounting.
These are more affordable than the Alpine Type-R SPR-57LP, and the provide much better overall sound. The bass is decent, better than average for a 5x7. Where these really stand apart from the Type-R SPR-57LP is in the highs. Good clarity, good range. I've been pleased with these.
