Overview

Our take on the Alpine Type-R SPR-17LP

Alpine's audio engineers have used many of the high-end elements found in their acclaimed Type-R component systems to create the smooth-sounding, high-performance Type-R coaxial speakers.

Alpine's audio engineers have used many of the high-end elements found in their acclaimed Type-R component systems to create the smooth-sounding, high-performance Type-R coaxial speakers.

The SPR-17LP 6-3/4" 2-way speakers feature multi-layered pulp cones with rubber surrounds that hang tough when you turn up the volume. Alpine builds the woofers with high-strength steel baskets and heavy-duty speaker motors for the steady support they need when the system is cranked. You'll enjoy full low-frequency response with low distortion.

Alpine's 1" silk dome Point Source tweeters radiate enveloping highs. A special tuned chamber behind each tweeter increases driver efficiency to ensure crisp, clear reproduction.

Note: Sorry, Crutchfield cannot ship Alpine products to Guam or Puerto Rico.

I am really happy with this product. Originally I had stock speakers in my 96 Nissan Maxima, but once I installed the Alpine speakers it sounded much better. I really like how Crutchfield prepares instructions, they were helpful and easy to understand.

Features

Multi-layer Pulp Woofer Cones: Each speaker features a multi-layer pulp cone, for maximum strength, powerful bass and superior musical detail. For a smoother response and improved durability, the woofers use rubber surrounds.

1" Silk Dome Tweeters: Each speaker uses a 1" silk dome point source tweeter for better sound quality with less distortion. The unique design of the point source tweeter eliminates any cross cancellation between woofer and tweeter, and aligns the sound waves, for smooth sound performance.

GM/Chrysler Adapter Rings: The GM/Chrysler adapter rings allow the speakers to be installed in a standard 6-1/2" opening or an oversized 6-3/4" GM/Chrysler opening. The adapter rings have tabs that must be broken off when the speakers are mounted in a standard 6-1/2" opening.
