Overview

Our take on the Alpine S-S50

Alpine's been building quality car speakers for decades, and their latest S-Series S-S50 5-1/4" speakers are no exception. If you've been living with anemic factory sound, this step up in range, tone definition, and power handling will make you giddy just about every time you hop behind the wheel. And if you're really jonesing for a boost in sound quality, hook them up to a powerful aftermarket stereo or amp for increased performance.

Worthy materials

Alpine's carbon fiber-reinforced plastic woofer cones provide next-level sturdiness but are also agile enough to handle the complexities of the midrange. Their high amplitude multi-roll rubber surround contributes to reduced distortion for a cleaner sound, while silk dome tweeters give you all the precise details that bring out the character of the instruments and vocals. If you've never experienced Alpine sound quality, these speakers are a great place to start.

Grilles are not included; the factory grilles should be suitable for most applications. Optional grilles are available for custom installations.

Alpine comes through again

Randy from Hilliard, OH on 1/7/2019

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Matched these with an Alpine CDE-172BT CD Receiver in my 2004 JEEP Grand Cherokee. They are in front doors and really far exceed my expectations. They really pick out the bass more than I thought they would. Really a super upgrade from the OEM speakers that came in JEEP. I have used Alpine products many times over the years and once again I am not disappointed.

Pros: Great bass sound for a 2 way speaker

Cons: None

Amazing Sound

Pros: Great sound, fit well on my 2003 dodge ram rear sides, comes with hardware,

Cons: None

New Alpine for 08 Equinox

Scott from KENTON, OH on 2/11/2018

2008 Chevrolet Equinox
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Ordered these for my 08 Equinox to replace factory front door speakers and I'm blown away with them. The sound was amazing and I couldn't believe the bass they provided, so excited about them I ordered another pair for the rear doors. I'm only giving four stars because the brackets were a bit confusing but that's because I don't read instructions. As far as quality and supplying everything you'll need 5 stars for sure!! Thank you Crutchfield for making my experience so fast and easy!!

Pros: Excellent quality excellent sound, all the accessories supplied for you. No cutting wires, no back tape like in the eighties!!

Cons: Brackets a little confusing but if you read the instructions I'm sure it will not be an issue.
