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.

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.

Features

Mounting: Without an adapter, the speakers fit standard 6-3/4" applications. Given their required cutout, they will also fit standard 6-1/2" applications without an adapter, but new screw holes must be drilled. Using the included adapter brackets they can be mounted in a variety of standard 3-hole 6-1/2" applications, Ford 4-hole 6-1/2" applications, and non-standard 6-3/4" applications, without any modification.

Pivoting Tweeters: Each tweeter pivots inside its housing, so it can be angled toward the listeners to improve imaging.

Customer Q&A

6 questions already asked

Q
Are these wired in Series for 4 ohm, is there a way to rewire them to make them 2ohm?
[ New User  Aug 22, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
Those are 4 ohm speakers. If you had two pairs wired in parallel you could present the amplifier with a 2 ohm load.

Q
I'm attempting to find a set of 6.5" speakers that will fit a parcel shelf with three mounting holes, rather than the usual four. I understand these speakers come with an adaptor bracket to achieve this, but can you fit this inside the groove at the top rather than mounting the speaker on top of it? I would like to fit the KTE-S65G grills, so I'm guessing that this wouldn't fit flush to the shelf if the bracket was underneath ?
