Overview

Our take on the Alpine SPR-60C

Exceptional performance, even at high volume

Alpine Authorized Online Dealer Like it loud? Alpine designed their Type-R speakers for people who like to turn it up. They'll deliver big, dynamic sound with plenty of bass, and they'll handle lots of volume. They'll work great with your car stereo, but they really come into their own when you power them with an outboard amp.

Alpine SPR-60C

Fine-tuned for clarity and balance

The Type-R SPR-60C component system features 6-3/4" multi-layer hybrid fiber woofers that deliver really strong bass response. Alpine's adapted the specially ridged surround, originally developed for their subs, to these speakers, so you get consistent, extended cone movement that pushes a lot of air. The silk tweeters produce smooth highs that bring out your music's detail and depth with no shrillness. Alpine mounts an EQ ring in front of the tweeters to help disperse the highs for a larger listening "sweet spot" in your ride. The tweeters mount separately so you can focus the sound better for your seating position.

Smaller, stronger neodymium magnets

Alpine uses powerful neodymium magnets which are much smaller than traditional magnets, so the SPR-60C's high-density polymer frames will fit into more places than most 6-3/4" woofers. External 2-way crossover networks control the high and low frequencies for seamless, clear sound — and they're 60% smaller than the old Type-R crossovers so they're easier to install. Type-R speakers have earned their reputation in the past as the masters of "crank it to the max," but Alpine has really kicked the performance factor of the latest models up a notch or two.

Note: Alpine describes this model as a 6-1/2" speaker. Most manufacturers designate this same frame size as a 6-3/4" speaker. For simplicity's sake we list it as a 6-3/4" speaker.

Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

Features

Woofers: The Alpine Type-R series component speakers feature multi-layered hybrid fiber woofer cones; for durability and superior linearity, they use rubber surrounds.

HAMR Surround: Type-R speakers use Alpine's multi roll HAMR surround (patent pending), a technology developed for Alpine subwoofers that maintains control and stability at higher volume levels. HAMR surround combines increased cone area and long linear cone excursion for deep, powerful bass response.

Motor Structure: The woofer's High-performance Linear Drive Motor structure features a square-wire voice coil with a large 30mm diameter, driven by a small but powerful neodymium magnet. This design provides linear motion over a wide cone excursion.

Neodymium Magnet: The neodymium magnet on the Type-R series woofers allows smaller speaker dimensions, making them easier to install in a wide variety of vehicles. They are also lighter than designs using standard magnet technology.

HD Polymer Frame: The new Type-R woofers use a revolutionary HD Polymer frame, making the speaker stronger, lighter, and easier to install.

Tweeters: The SPR-60C includes 1" (25mm) silk dome tweeters. Alpine's EQ Ring improves the tweeter's dispersion characteristics, providing excellent off-axis response. When using the flush-mount housing you can also tilt the tweeters up to 15° to focus the sound toward your ears.

Tweeter Mounting Options: The tweeters come installed in a swiveling flush-mount housing. You can also install the tweeters behind factory grilles using the included stealth mount brackets. The stealth mount brackets can be top or bottom mounted. The installed tweeter dimensions are:

  Flush Mount (swivel) Factory Location (bottom mount) Factory Location (top mount)
Mounting Depth 0.67" 0.965" 0"
Mounting Height 0.43" 0" 0.8"
Cutout Diameter 2.007" N/A N/A
Frame Diameter 2.275" 1.7" x 2.8" 1.7" x 2.8"

Crossovers: The SPR-60C features low-pass crossovers attached to each woofer's input terminal and separate high-pass crossovers in-line between the woofers and tweeters. Because the crossovers are separate, the system can be bi-amped. Two-sided tape is included to mount the high-pass crossovers and their dimensions are:

  • Width: 2.65"
  • Height: 0.97"
  • Depth: 1.27"

Tweeter Attenuation: Each crossover has four tweeter level options, allowing you to precisely tune the high frequencies to the car interior and tweeter placement. Using the supplied jumpers select 0dB (no attenuation), -2dB, -4dB, or -6dB.

Told they were good [ Michael  Jun 04, 2016 ]
Great price great speaker [ John  Jun 01, 2016 ]
Matched these with an Alpine head unit after hearing them in a 2011 Yukon XL and being impressed with the clarity and lower end hit these can produce - you cannot go wrong with these component in your front cabin. [ Gregory  Mar 21, 2016 ]
I like Alpine speakers for their clarity in terms of highs and high-midrange frequencies. To me they sound clean and crisp. Bass isn't really their strong point as my past set of Infinity components had a frequency range 20hz below these, but the Get a pair half off sale peaked my interest. Definitely much clearer than the infinity's but those were also 6x8's, and low-midrange/bass will be handled for me by a nice 12" sub and a half off pair of SPR-68's [ Mark  Jan 18, 2016 ]

4 questions already asked

I Can't tell you that. I ran 100 watts per channel x4 with two twelve inch subs and a mono 1000. They were nice. Really enjoyed them. Im moving into some new speakers in spring. Totaled that car. :( [ Preston  Feb 11, 2016 ]
I bi-amped these speakers with a JL Audio 700/5v2. I believe it is 75 watts per channel. The system works great and sounds great. Very nice to have more control over the tweeter and woofer. [ Ernest  Feb 11, 2016 ]
To be honest I don't know . All I can say I'm very happy with alpine speakers [ SERGIO  Dec 04, 2015 ]
One of the terminals will be larger than the other. You can simply purchase quick slide connectors like these: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_120FQS10PK/Metra-Female-Quick-Slides.html If we have a harness available for your vehicle, then it will have a connection on one end to connect to your vehicles wiring. The other end will have quick slide connectors for attaching to the speaker. [ Jeff  Mar 14, 2014 ]  Staff
I am not sure about about your first question although I do not believe that there is any way to adjust them. As for your second question the 5th connector is for bi-amping, if you would like to add a separate amp to your speakers you would use this negative connector. [ Greg M  Apr 15, 2014 ]
I had it installed. so sorry can't answer your question. [ PAUL E  Dec 16, 2013 ]
