The sonic specialists at Alpine optimize their SPS-610 6-1/2" speakers for great range and impressive tone definition, even at low power levels. You can connect these versatile Type-S Series speakers to your factory stereo for an immediate sonic improvement, or hook them up to a powerful aftermarket stereo or amp for increased performance.
Mineral-fortified polypropylene cones are exceptionally stiff, yet lightweight, which means they can push out accurate bass and deliver clear midrange. Resilient rubber surrounds help keep the woofer centered for accurate cone movement, reducing distortion. Silk dome tweeters bring out all the details in your music.
Grilles are not included; the factory grilles should be suitable for most applications.

Crisp clean clear sound...
They sound great and were a breeze to install.
I have these in my rear doors on my 2017.5 Nissan Rogue and they sound realy good. I used to have the 6/9 version of these same speakers in my old car and they sound just as good, I am using the component version in the front of my car as well. They are powered by a kicker key180.4 (45w rms x4) amp and definitely sound great with the power.
Pros: sound great. easy to install with crutchfield bracket, wire harness, and installation manual.
Cons: not much bass but i have two rockford 12" p3's for that
Awesome speakers paired with the Alpine SPS 610 gave me the soundstage I was looking for in my truck.
Thank you for the prompt service. The products were delivered the next day following my order. The Alpine speakers are excellent, for the price. I did notice the impedance of the speakers was 6ohm and the factory speakers were 4ohm, is this likely to affect the performance?
These speakers sound really good. Clear highs and a small amount of bass. I usually don't expect a lot of bass from 6.5 speakers but these are ok. If you want more bass, add a sub. I like these so much I bought a pair for my wife and my sons vehicle. I would recommend these speakers to friends and family. A small amp wouldn't hurt over a factory head unit but we are using Kenwood 375 BT stereos and they sound great.
Pros: Clear sound. A small amp would probably bring out more than a stock head unit.
Cons: None that I have seen so far.
Love the product. Great sound eve with factory system. Easy to install and came with all necessary adapters. Got a great deal on the speakers compared to what other online retailers were charging. Even more than the product is the Crutchfield service support is highly recommended.
These sound wonderful. Just some background ... I originally purchased a couple of JBL GT7-6s from Crutchfield as they were supposed to fit the front doors of my old '06 Toyota Highlander. Upon trying to install the JBLs, it became obvious that there was no way they would fit. A huge shout out and kudos to Mike from Customer Support who assisted me in exchanging them for the Alpines, who he personally recommended and guaranteed would fit. Sure enough when they arrived, I had no problems with the installation. I found them sounding awesome, although a bit heavy on the bass side. Not a problem, as I can adjust the bass setting accordingly at the stereo which is OEM. I highly recommend them.
These were purchased to replace the OEM front door speakers in my 2009 Acura TL and they sound wonderful! It is true that they want and need more power than the OEM speakers, but I am using them with the other OEM audio equipment and after making adjustments to some of the settings along with a slight increase in volume (I don't listen to my music very loud in general) the system sounds better than I remember when it was new. Very easy to install thanks to the Crutchfield Mastersheet instructions. Very pleased overall.
Pros: Excellent speakers for the money
Great replacement speakers for 2014 Impreza. Supplied frame and harness adapters made installation easy. Running them off of an Alpine ilx 107 head unit with a ktp-445a amp helping push them. They are clear and accurate.
A huge step up from factory of course but for a coaxial they sound awesome. You can't go wrong with alpine. Th hey were so easy to install.
Pros: Great speakers for coaxial speakers
Cons: A little more bright compared to the JL Audio I listed too, bit still an awesome set of speakers. Very easy to install.
These speakers were an excellent upgrade from the OEM front door speakers in my 2006 Chevy HD 2500. Good stuff for a great price. No need for an amp, yet. :)
Pros: Easy DIY install, good sound vs. OEM
Got these to replace factory front door speakers in my 05 Tacoma, made a big difference in the sound connected to the Sony head unit, better bass and clearer highs from the tweeters.
Great quality speakers but they definitely need to be amplified.
I bought these to replace the door speakers in my 01 2500HD. Hooked them up to a 4 channel amp with 80 watts rms. They are crisp, clear, hit all the mids. They do everything they say they will and maybe even a little more. LOUD too.
This speaker replaced some 4" stock speakers in my 1994 Toyota pickup extended cab behind the seats and I couldn't be more happy. They have decent bass for their size and have amazing crisp and clear sound. All around awesome mid speaker for the price.
Pros: Pretty good bass Crisp and clear sound Excellent price
Cons: No Cons at all, all around awesome speaker
Great, clean, undistorted, sound for a good price. These offer decent bass, are a great upgrade from factory component speakers, and produce clear highs, even when cranked up. These are not the Type-R components, If you are looking for the best, then buy the best!!! The Type-R's do require a good 4 channel amp!! If you are not looking to spend a fortune, and don't want to wire in an amp then these are a great alternative. These are great speakers that don't require a lot of power to be pushed decently. If you are looking for a lot of bass then you need to add an amp and a subwoofer.
Pros: Great speakers, great value, great product!
Cons: These are not Type-R's, but they sound great!
Awesome speaker for the price super clear great sound thanks Crutchfield.
Pros: Great price great sound easy install
Amazing speakers! In my Chevy Colorado I have them running on Alpine 400w component amp. They sound so clear and loud. Great buy.
Sound Is good!
Not bad, installation kit was perfect, speakers work great, shipping fast, positive experience.......thanks
Sound is good. Installation was easy
Installed 4 of them in my 2007 Chevy Avalanche, fit perfect, all 4 original speakers were blown. These sound great connected to my new Kenwood and JL amp .
Pros: Price, sound and quality
Cons: none so far
Love these speakers. Really gave my audio a boost compared to the stock speakers
Pros: Sound great
I really like these speakers. They were very reasonably priced. I bought them to replace all four speakers in my 10 year old Toyota Sequoia. The front speakers were blown. Great sound. Plenty of bass for me.
Pros: Great sound for a reasonable price
Installed 4 of them into my 2014 Mazda 3. They sound great. Amplified would sound better.
Pros: Price, sound
Cons: Crutchfield said rear was 5.5, they were 6.5. They of course were super helpful and sent replacements immediately.
Awesome speakers for the money, The newer Chevy / GMC trucks if one stock speaker goes out they all do, great replacement for the crappy stock ones.
Pros: Bolted right in, very easy with Crutchfield's install kit!
Great sound... Easy upgrade to factory sound!!!
I haven't used them yet but they're going to be going into my 2009 Cadillac Escalade ESV to replace the blown out door speakers I have alpine everything else in my Cadillac Fleetwood and I love them so these should be just as good if not I will update and change the review but as of right now shipping was fast part came with ease everything looks good in the box
Pros: Cheap Price good quality fast shipping
Cons: Don't see any yet
Excellent sound for the price. The speakers really need to be powered by an amplifier to perform at their best. When using with the stock head unit there was virtually no base response, but after install an amplifier (45W RMS) they really came to life.
Pros: Excellent highs and mids for the price
Cons: Need more power than factory headunits will provide in order produce lower frequencies. Tweeters have a very small range of adjustment.
Love the sound that come out of these speakers
Pros: Easy to install
To install these in the Mazdaspeed 3, I had to make some 3/4 MDF adapters to convert the 5x7 opening to 6.5, and to space them out enough to clear the window. The speakers themselves are very well made. The sound is much cleaner and they can take more power without distorting than stock. Some have complained that these offer little bass. the specs indicate these only go down to 70 Hz and I imagine you would need an amp if you want more bass. For my application they work perfectly.
Pros: Well made Clear sound Can handle some power
Cons: None. They do exactly what they are supposed to do.
I can see why these are a top rated product. After seeing the number of positive reviews, I took a chance on these. For the money, they sound great. I did have to buy an alpine power pack to give them a bit more juice. Once I did that, they performed above my expectations.
Pros: Quite a bit of mid bass. Seem to be able to handle a wide variety of music, without distortion.
Cons: Might need more power than your factory or aftermarket radio puts out, by itself.
I recently installed a pair of Kicker ks 6 1/2 speakers in my civic and was shocked at how bad they sounded with an Alpine head unit. Today, I pulled them out and installed a pair of these Alpines and they are a lot more musical. I would have rated them 5 star but I feel that they may lack in the low end but sound great for mids and highs. I'm using a sub for lows so the bass output wasn't important to me. They are much better than the Kickers when powered from a head unit only which surprised me due to the Kickers higher spl.
Pros: Clean sound. Pronounced vocals.
Cons: Non so far
Bought these a few weeks ago. I was able to listen to them at a local store and compared to all the others, the Alpines have smoother highs and tighter bass. They do need more power than many of the other brands but it's worth it. Definitely for those who prefer quality over quantity.
Pros: Smooth highs Good clarity Tight bass Nothing is exaggerated
Cons: Not as efficient with power
I have these speakers paired with an Alpine SPS 610c system in the front, powered by a 4 channel alpine amp. They sound great, can produce solid bass, with nice highs. The Crutchfield fitment guide said they would not fit in my 1999 Dodge Durango SLT, however, they fit perfectly.
Pros: Good sound and price
quite a nice upgrade for stock rear door sliverado speakers, handles the power from an amp very nicely i would very highly recommend anyone to upgrade 5 1/4 size to these!
Pros: with only a modest amount of creativity the original rear door bracket can be made to work really well for these, and they do sound better with those brackets as their mounting.
Cons: The fact that a decent bracket is not available for these in the rear door, making the extra trouble of making factory bracket usable
Relatively easy to install. Sound good in the truck
Replaced factory junk speakers in 2016 Tundra. Sound is way better cleaned up mids and highs.
Pros: Great price and quality.
Absolutely horrible sound. Zero bass. I bought these and front speakers and all 4 Alpine sound like crap and are very scratchy. I regret spending the time and money on these.
Cons: EverythingCrutchfield response on 2/3/2016 Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to help the customer. We'll either help her get these speakers working the way they should, or help her return them for an exchange or refund.
Replaced my factory speaker , with these , great sound ..
Pros: Excellent sound
I installed these in my 2000 GMC Sierra pick up. I am pushing these with a Rockford Fosgate 4X75 rms amp. The high pass filter is set at 120. The sound is tight and clear. I don't need bass from these since I have subsunder the back seat. Definitely great sounding speakers for a reasonable price.
Pros: Tight clean sound. Can handle power.
Just installed them this weekend and they sound great. Definitely an upgrade from the factory speakers. I purchased an open box and saved $20. The additional tweeter gives more high end to balance the lows. Not super expensive and well worth it
Pros: Extra tweeter
Cons: Slight modification of one hole drilled but it was not an issue.
I got these speakers thinking they had passive crossovers(nope) they were inline. So I installed them into my 2010 Silverado and sounded barely better than stock. 2 days later I installed a Kenwood DDX492 and OHHHHH my what a difference it made. With the controllable crossover , bass boost and 5 channel EQ these things sound great. 2 days from now I will be pairing it up with a xr900-5 kenwood amp and will modify this review
Pros: great and clear sounding
Cons: need more than just the factory deck
I purchased these speakers as factory replacements in the rear of my '08 Frontier. The quality of sound is far better than the factory speakers! They are very crisp and responsive. As other reviewers have stated, there is very little bass output from these. They match well with the 6 x 9's in the front, creating a full sound throughout the cab.
Pros: Great factory replacement.
Cons: Very little bass response.
Great product. I am a huge Alpine fan and I was debating on getting these or the type r for a little more money. Decided to go with these since I was adding other type s speakers in my FJ Cruiser. Love the fact that Crutchfield sells the adapters so I could fit these in my 6x9 openings. These speakers really don't provide a lot of bass but that was what I wanted since I added 2 12" Type R Alpine's with a 1200wt amp. The set up right now is perfect with the bass from the subs and the highs and mids from these. Think I made the best decision with I purchased Alpine from my CD player all the way back to my subs.
Pros: Clear Highs Strong Mids Easy to install
I installed these in the rear doors of my 2007 Silverado. The sound is great. It would have been good to have installation instructions, especially with the spacer plates. Once I figured it out the install was smooth. The sound quality is great.
Pros: Awesome sound quality.
Very easy to install, much easier than Crutchfield led me to believe, however I am very displeased with the performance. I bought these and the component version for my truck. The component version sounds amazing, very clear with alot of bass drive and clear treble. However these were crackling right out of the box at mid-loud volume, possible i could have gotten a bad set. May be returning them very soon and bite the bullet and drill tweeter holes so i can install the component speakers in the rear of my truck.
Pros: Easy to install
Cons: Poor sound quality, crackling sound.
I replace my factory speakers on my 07 silverado with these alpine speakers. Big sound difference. Can't wait to add an amp to it. I recommend it.
First time buying the size 6 1/2 Alpine Type-S speakers, although I do have experience with their 6x9's and bought these because I loved what they offer in terms of quality construction and sound for your money. These went into the front doors of a 4 door Acura Integra and I will be the first to say you may need to use your old speakers spacers with mild modification, along with the new spacers provided by Alpine to actually clear the regulator arm for the window operation. Its not a huge challenge so long as you have a hacksaw and a vice to hold the old spacer as you saw threw the bottom to allow room for the bigger magnet and screw the two spacers together. They mount perfect and clear everything just fine once done!
Pros: Great bang for the buck.
Cons: May require thicker spacers modification to fit front doors of some cars .
Installed these in the back of my xb, was disappointed in the sound right off the bat. I have some infinity reference series up front and they sound fantastic. I thought maybe they needed to break in and break is exactly what they did less than 4 months later...one of them blew. I wasn't impressed from the beginning and I will be going with a different brand this time.
Cons: poor sound quality, blown speaker in 4 months.
Alpine excellence for years... I have been pushing hard and loud sound since '83 always with Alpine.
Pros: Excellent sound, range, power handling, clarity and quality.
I replaced the old stock speakers in my 98 dodge Dakota pickup truck with these. It made a phenomenal difference even with the stock deck. I also replace the deck with an Alpine CDE-153BT. The entire installation took only a day and the instructions from Crutchfield where flawless. I now have bass when I didn't even know what that was. The system was inexpensive and has given new life to an old truck.
Pros: Great all around range Easy installation Terrific sound
Way better then my stock speakers in my 97 Chevy
Pros: Great sound. Clear at loud volume
Cons: Not much bass
Replaced the rear door factory speakers in my 2010 Lancer and are driven by an upgraded receiver/amplifier. The installation only required drilling four holes in the door sheet metal. The mid-range sound is much better than before.
Pros: Nice product and a modest price.
This speaker makes me fall in love every time I hear it. The bass response is among the best that I've heard from a speaker (even on headunit power) and the tweeter is subdied, mellow, and smooth. Nowhere near tinny, at all. For keeping up with subs this wouldn't be a good choice, IMO, but if you don't want a sub and want as much bass as you can get from a budget speaker-only system, these are the ticker. On the power pack or an amp they perform even better! The tweeter is on a swivel, so you can aim it a little, which is nice, too. Wonderful speaker. They even come with Chrysler mounting brackets, which is a bonus.
Pros: Great bass Mellow tweeter Good on headunit power, great on amp power.
Cons: Not ideal for pairing up with subs if you're only running on headunit power if you want lots of treble response. No grills included
These speakers sound amazing!! Purchased from Crutchfield during a special sale that was buy one get one half off so I purchased two sets, one for the front and the other for the rear. Replaced the stock paper cone speakers in my car. With any Crutchfield purchase, they came with the master installation sheet made specifically for my car.
Pros: Amazing sound. Good range of sound. Lucky enough for an amazing deal on the speakers.
Cons: Lacking bass so a subwoofer may be needed if you want that extra "oomph" in your music. Installation master sheet could have been a bit clearer (or it may have just been my car that was difficult)
Absolutely amazing speakers they are pure and clean best ones I have owned
Pros: Clear clean speakers highly reconvened
Great oem replacement speakers. Sound 100x better than the oem speakers that were in my 2013 sierra crew. Best bang for your buck for sure
Combined with an Alpine CDE-143BT, these speakers sound amazing. Worlds better than stock.
Great sound. If you listen to country, rock or alt. these are perfect for you. But if you're looking for bass these didn't exceed my expectation. Would buy again. Install took me a couple hours
Pros: Great treble Clear
Cons: Average bass
Wish I would have looked before installation to see my Truck already had the separates, Would have spend the few extra dollars to keep it that way. I did expect a bit better bottom end having gone with the 6 3/4. That said it is much better then the aged factory units I took out.
Pros: Crutchfield's vehicle look up and installation kit made this a breeze!! Would not do it any other way.
Cons: None - everything went as expected
The speakers work fine. The supplied adapters were not big enough, so used both adapters the free ones and the ones that came with the speakers. I felt better hooking the speakers with the alpine adapters they had bigger screws. The free ones had pretty little ones to connect the speakers.
Pros: The speakers have clear sound from my Clarion head unit. I have them matched with SPR 6x9 and they are a good match.
Cons: none yet
Ordered speakers, adapter plate and wiring adapter for easy install in rear doors of 2011 Jetta TDI. The depth of the speakers 2 1/4 work with the recess within the door. It might permit a deeper speaker but these fit fine. The only notable comment is that when the speaker is mounted flush to thrle inner metal panel of the door is that there is a small gap at the top that needs to be closed out(velcro works) As for the sound..great though even when the mids and highs are adjusted i would prefer a separarte tweeter SPS610c. Might cost a bit more.. I might do that for my front ones. But all in all the sound is great and the price is right and you limit your exposure to any install issues.
Pros: Fit within car..fantastic Sound. Mid and bass great
Cons: Wish there was just a little more highs. But if you want everything be prepared for not only the cost of the speaker..but its installation
Hey, what can I say, these are Alpines! Legendary Alpine clarity with rich deep lows, great mid range, and infinite highs. These SPS 610s are being used as rear speakers in a SAAB 9000 Aero Hatchback. Just to give props to the whole system, the stereo is simple, a Clarion NZ 500 receiver , two 4" Alpines in the front, a 150 watt Fosgate amp powering a 10" Pioneer sub in the hatch. Not overly complicated but sounds better than the factory Bose in my CTS, and tons better than the my Lexus' system. The speakers range is clear and feedback free all the way up to max.
Pros: Great sound.
Cons: Wish Alpine had a 6 X 9.
A great sounding speaker in a smallish package
Pros: Crisp and clear highs, solid bass
Cons: no speaker grills included
This speakers are great, i installed them on my jetta and the sound is crisp clear ... i have a pioneer deck that i also bought on here...
These speakers are a great deal for the $$ they sound great running off my deck with a small sub providing the bass. easy to install.
Pros: Great sound great price
Needed to replace my stock speakers. These Alpines went in perfectly, sound fantastic. A couple friends of mine complimented their great sound.
Pros: Clear, powerful sound
Cons: I don't have anything bad to say about them.
Great speakers great price
Pros: The sound is great
Great upgrade on factory speakers(2010 Toyota Highlander)!
Great overall sound. I was expecting a little more on the lower end than factory speakers, but it's the opposite.
Pros: Great all around sound
Cons: Lacking quite a bit on the lower frequencies.
Great sound and the lows seem to push well even in low db's
Cons: GRILLS NOT INCLUDED!!!
I bought these speakers a year or so ago. One the of the reasons I got them was because they were buy on get one half off. I should have just spent the money and got a set of pioneers. I agree with some of the other reviews about them being muddy. There is no crispness to them. There is also a lack of bass. My receiver sends just the low frequencies to the back two just to get any bass out of them. I thought there might be a break in time but one year later and they still disappoint.
These speakers are very close to what you get in an "upgraded" factory stereo as far as the sound. Not as good as Bose, but genuinely good sound. It doesn't bother me at all to go from my 1200 watt, high end focals and subwoofer in my truck to my cheap little car with just two of these Alpines. The reason I like them so much is that they are not overly bright or harsh. Sure, you can't hear the lead singer blink his eyes like you can on the focals, but you can listen to them for 12 hours on the road to every kind of music without needing a break. After reading some of the reviews, it is obvious that people buying lower end speakers like these are not willing to install them properly for good sound. Make no mistake, these are good enough to require a solid mount and some dynamat (or peel and seal from home depot). This will eliminate the "muddiness" some people are getting and allow you to hear what a basic speaker should sound like. Also, when installed properly, you can get some good bass out of these. My bass is set on 3 out of 6 and these things do just fine, and I'm used to a 12" sub. Personally, I love good music in my car, and these represent the starting point for good music in my opinion. Don't get the wal-mart noise makers, spend the extra $20 and get a pair of these (or at least something as good). I am running these in the front doors of a 98 Toyota Carolla from the cheapest alpine head unit (17 Watts RMS). Full dynamat on both front doors.
Pros: Cheap, not harsh or peaky, balanced, smooth, warm, easy to listen to, generally enjoyable to most everyone for any type of music, best $100 speaker I've heard
Cons: Instruments tend to run together when played simultaneously, highs are so soft that snare drums sometimes sound like a baby sneezing, imaging is almost non-existent, all the common limitations of $100 speakers without all the harsh, unnatural, unbalanced traits you usually get
I replaced my factory speakers on my 2013 Chevy Silverado 1500 with these speakers. Much clearer sound and way better base. I would definitley recommend these speakers!
Fit very well in my 2007.5 Silverado 2500HD LMM. Very clean sound with enough bass for my liking. Came with many extras making install easy. Thank you Crutchfield!
attracive and high quality
Pros: high quality
First and foremost I'm happy to do business with Crutchfield because they're always very helpful. It costs money to have experts on staff to serve customers so I don't even mind paying a little more at Crutchfield, but usually their prices are competitive anyway. My setup is a Pioneer deck using the RCA outputs to an Alpine KTP-445A power pack, then to a pair of SPS-610s and a pair of SPS 406s. I've predominantly used Alpine products for 30 years but I have to say that I think Alpine isn't what it used to be. While these speakers aren't the priciest around, they're in the same price range as some that perform better. These speakers tend to sound muddy and they aren't terribly responsive. Even when taking into account the speaker size, the bass performance is pretty poor. Forget getting anything out of them for low frequencies. They also are not very efficient so the recommendation is don't try these unless you have a separate amp even if it is a small one. I first installed the deck and amp then made sure that worked before replacing the factory speakers in my truck. If you can believe it, the factory speakers performed better in many ways than the Alpines did. In all I'd say these speakers are "ok" but I'd look to a different brand that is at least more efficient before settling on these. I'd return them but they don't sound bad enough for me to go through the hassle of removing and replacing them. I think Alpine needs to step it up.
Pros: Seem to be made well.
Cons: Muddy sound, poor responsiveness, and not efficient.
i have a pair of alpine type S subs that ive had for almost a year now, had somewhat upgraded my door speakers with some old speakers i got from my bro, decided its time to get new door speakers, these sound amazing, completely bring the car sound quality from a 5 to a 10. Would recommend these HIGHLY to anyone wanting to boost your mids and highs
Pros: amazing sound, no distortion
Cons: havent had any
Just excellent, no-nonsense speakers. The built-in crossover makes sure the tweeter is not overdriven by low frequencies and the woofer has the punch it needs. Sounds better than similarly priced component systems.
Great replacements for my factory Infinity speakers
Pros: sounds great
Cons: I haven't found any
Clear sharp sound... Have gotten nothing less than admirable comments from those that have been a passenger and/or listened to them... I am considering a set for my older car to pick its spirits up a lil...
Pros: price fit my budget... while traveling just the sound I need to enjoy my football season
Cons: I didn't know bout them before now
I bought 2 sets of these speakers to replace the factory (non Bose) speakers in my 2012 GMC Sierra extended cab truck. I just thought the factory speakers were bad. These sounded much worse. Would not recommend them at all! Very muddy with very little high end sound.
Speakers sound great and they fit in my Silverado front doors perfectly with the suuplied cable adapters that Crutchfield supplied for free. I had to drill 4 small holes for each speaker. Beware of the instructions that were supplied to remove door panels because there are about 4 different panel variations in these pickups.
Pros: Easy to install and they sound great.
These sounded great, but unfortunately they didn't fit... These fit the front doors of my 2007 Honda Civic EX Coupe, as expected from the Crutchfield "Fits My Car" tool, but NOT the rear deck location as indicated... They were too deep and hit the rear torsion bars for the trunk lid. I ended up returning these for a set of Pioneer TS-A1675R's which I found to be even better than these, especially when they actually fit. These are good, but the Pioneers seem to be a bit better sound-wise, especially in the low end.
Pros: Crisp, clear, and bright sound.
Cons: Doesn't fit rear of 2007 Honda Civic EX Coupe as expected from "Fits My Car" tool. You'll want a sub to go with these, there isn't much bass.
Replaced my rear door speakers in my chevy 3500 crew cab sounds a lot better than factory although I still have factory deck . The factory deck don't seem to push very many watts to rear ch. , but I think if I add an amp I would get full potential out of these speakers.
Pros: Easy install , higher quality than paper factory spkrs.
I installed these in my sons jeep grand Cherokee. And let me tell ya he loves them. They seriously fit in to the rest of his head banging stereo equipment. Alpine rocks great.
Pros: Sound great either high peach or serious bass.
Love the sound
These take decent amounts of power and sound great. I have them mounted in the rear with XTC baffles behind them and they perform well at all volume levels. I LOVE them!
Pros: Efficient and balanced
great instuctions fit and sound great
Pros: easy installation
Cons: not as much bass output as the factory when they worked
These speakers create a nice warm tone throughout the car without being overdramatic with the highs like Pioneers. I have these driven by my factory head unit and they sound great, but seem to lack bass. I'm probably going to change the head unit out and possibly add an Alpine Power Pack to increase the power to the speakers and get a better equalizer to dial in more bass. Had these in a previous car with a JVC head unit and they were excellent so hopefully the head unit solves the issue.
Pros: Clean highs and mids
Cons: Recommend use of an aftermarket head unit with these to get some extra bass out of them.
I am setting up a all Alpine system in my 2002 Galant and I added these first and i couldnt believe it but they were so loud that I could barely hear my stock 6x9's anymore. Great addition to my CDA-9884
Pros: Great front speaker, loud and great bass.
Cons: Didnt like having to drill new holes for the speakers.
I Bought these to replace a pair of JBL 6.5's. I was please too see that the sound difference was noticeably fuller, the alpines were clearly a better sounding speaker, warmer with a better overall presence.
Pros: Great sound with a smooth delevery.
Cons: None at this time.
Good replacement speaker. Installed in a 2008 Silverado. Crutchfield provided the speaker mounting bracket adaptor and wiring harness adaptor with purchase - no splicing and installed in both front doors under an hour (no power door locks or windows made the job a little easier). Much better sound over the junk stock speakers.
Pros: great sound - worked as advertised
I have a 2012 Chevy Cruze LT without the Pioneer upgrade. I had 4 of these speakers installed into the front and back doors to replace the factory speakers. I had a local audio store put them in for me. The sound is great for being connected to a factory radio. They sound so good that I can't wait to add an amp to them. I want to keep the factory radio, so my next step is to put in a sound processor ( A sound processor is needed to hook up an amp to a factory radio in most cases. ) and an alpine amp up to them. This is when I will really be able to show the quality of these speakers.
Pros: They sound great even with just a factory radio at all levels of volume because they are 2 - 80 watts RMS power.
I was excited to get these installed with my new Alpine deck and rear Alpine speakers, and I saw that these were rated really well, but the sound quality is nowhere near what I expected. I previously had Rockford Fosgate speakers in the car I just sold, which sounded great, but these Alpine speakers sound exactly the same as my factory speakers I just replaced for these. I am hoping there's a way I can return these and get different one's installed without having to pay a bunch of money.
Great sounding speaker for the price. complimented my jl sub only factory radio 2009 Honda civic
Speakers sound great
Pros: Clean sound
Great upgrade to my sound system. Alpine is my speaker of choice hands down.
Pros: Great speakers for the money!
Cons: Nothing bad to say. Installation was a breeze. Great sound before I even had the door cover back on.
I have a Infintit g35 and I have the alpine 6.5 component in the front and these in the rear. I know it says they will not fit in the rear but with a little work they will fit. Anyways, these are very good! I love them! I have my mids and highs powered by a jl4500 and the power works great! These are very sharp, and the highs sound amaizing!
The mounting brackets sent for the 02 and up Nissan Frontier XE did not fit and the speakers are deeper than oe and rattle against window. Took the universal thicker mounting brackets and had to do a lot of altering to make them work but speaker still rattles against window on drivers side. Lost a lot of volumn with the Alpine speakers compared to stock. Not really happy with the speakers but I do like the Alpine cda105 unit.
I just installed these in my 97' 4runner Limited and after a few mods to fit the size (moved up from 5 1/4), this speakers bring my back seat alive. I have these ran on a Alpine MRX-F30 with a matching Alpine SPS-610C front set of components and with it only turned to about a quater power and set at 45 Hz it really fills the space and cuts out all outside sounds when I need it too. Only issue about these is the same with all the rest you MUST BREAK THESE IN!! If you try to force them to run at top power with an amp right away you will end up blowing them in no time. Let these warm up, they may take a little time but before long they will hit strong mids and clear highs better than most of the rival brands.
Put these in the rear doors of a 2011 Kia Sorento, and man...soooo much clearer...Bass response is pretty good. Definately worth it.
Installed in the rear of my 11' Cruze Eco. Sound improved 100%. No amp installed. Not needed. Exactly what I wanted.
great speakers! i used these to replace the 6x9s in my grand am. They aren't amplified, but they are really loud and clear. they have a good amount of bass (nothing compared to a 6x9), but the mids and highs are awesome. overall I'm really impressed the only thing I would change is that I might run bass blockers on them. they don't come with speaker grills btw, but who needs them!

Poly-Mica Cone: Each SPS-610 speaker features a Poly-Mica cone and butyl rubber surround. Mica adds strength and heat resistance to polypropylene, resulting in reduced distortion and improved reliability.
Silk Dome Tweeters: Each speaker has a 1" Wide-Range Silk Dome Tweeter for smooth high frequencies. The tweeters also swivel up to 10° so you can optimize them based on your listening position.
Efficient Design: The SPS-610's high-efficiency design allows the speaker to be powered by your factory or aftermarket head unit, resulting in an easy system improvement for many vehicles requiring 6-1/2" or 6-3/4" speakers.
Mounting: Without an adapter, the SPS-610 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 the SPS-610s 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.
No Grilles: No grilles are included with these speakers.

I don't own a Handa but they did fit in the rear deck of my 97 Mercedes E320. Hope this helps [ DAVE Jan 12, 2018 ]
We do not have the 2016 researched as of yet. They are not a recommended fit in the 2015. [ Ryan Dec 12, 2017 ] Staff

Hey Richard. I replaced the stock Bose speakers in my 2007 GMC Sierra(Crew Cab) with the SPS-610's in the rear doors and SPS-610C's in the front. I considered using the 610's up front but found it well worth it to use the Component version in front doors. The toughest part of the whole install was snaking the crossover wire through the door wire run but I've dealt with far tougher in a 2000 Camry and 1999 Beetle. Even the bit of trimming to fit the tweeters in the stock pillar mount was fairly easy with just a bit of silicone to hold them in. It all worked great for me, looks completely stock and sounds great. [ John Oct 08, 2017 ]
Yes they will but in order to take full of advantage you're better off getting these speakers with the alpine tweeters combo. [ Pedro Oct 07, 2017 ]
Yes I have a avalanche , will still work fine [ tony Oct 07, 2017 ]
The sounds very clear and crisp but these really two way speakers you'll definitely want to subwoofer in there [ CHARLES M May 16, 2017 ]
They are adequate for my 2009 Silverado. Clarity is fine, bass is better than stock, but not too much punch. [ SonOfBob May 16, 2017 ]
Not as much bass as I expected based on spec sheet. Good midrange sound tho to compliment my sub. [ Gary May 16, 2017 ]
I enjoy the speakers thoroughly. The clarity and bass work well in any situation of music. They will sound even better hooked to an alpine amp. [ ROY ADAM May 16, 2017 ]
Very good. [ JAYESH May 16, 2017 ]
it is okay, could be better. It also depends on your settings/equalizer levels of your receiver. I would maybe look at going to the next level of speakers for a little better bass. [ Steve May 16, 2017 ]

It looks like the Alpine SPS-610 2-way speakers have a slightly taller mounting height than what you can fit into the rear doors of your Tundra. However, our research indicates the Alpine's have a 0.783" mount height and you can fit up to 0.778" in your truck; so with that little of a difference, I would imagine you can still get those to fit without much trouble. Also keep in mind our Crutchfield Tech Support can help you with the installation when you purchase the speakers from us. [ Larry Oct 21, 2015 ] Staff

I don't know if it will fit or work on your vehicle without knowing the particulars. It fit well on my 2003 VW Jetta TDI wagon.. [ EDGAR Feb 06, 2014 ]
To be honest with you, I purchased all SPR-60 Co-Axial, SPR 60C Component Speaker Set, and a set of the SPR-69 . However, what I have heard and seen. You could not go wrong with these speakers for your stock stereo system. However, if your just looking to make a change of speakers and your stock speakers are working. I would wait and I would save my money up until I could get a "Quality" Alpine AMP to put with these speakers. Most factory Systems are not so good that I might even save up until I could also get a New Factory Head unit. However, if your factory speakers are blown then take a look at the SPS series and the SPR series and by you a pair of which ever one fits your wallet the best. You wil not be able to tell the difference between the two, if not driven by an AMP. Good Luck through search. Please do not hesitate to email me back if you have any questions. I'm going to shoot straight with you, my opinion is totally mine. I'm always going to tell you what I think and try to save you money at the same time. Type in you speaker of choice into "Google" and look at the difference in Prices compared at what you are actually looking at now I bet.... Also, when purchasing online, "ALWAYS" purchase the SQUARE-TRADE" warranty with every item you buy. The are a great warranty company. They even took back a set of speakers that I bought while they were still under the 1 year Factory warranty and sent all the needed return shippment labels and within 7-10 days I had my $185.00 back in my account. Also, ALWAYS KEEP YOUR ORIGINAL BOXES.... Hope all of the above helps you. Later, R [ RICKY Feb 06, 2014 ]
Yes they should work fine. Alpine gives you wire adapters to connect to the OEM speaker wires. They work great. Good luck! [ MICHAEL F Feb 05, 2014 ]
I installed them in my 2003 Silverado along with a new receiver. I cannot tell you if they will work with your stock stereo but if you are replacing one for one they should work. By the way, mine sound great! [ DAVID L Feb 05, 2014 ]
Yea it will but to get the full power and quality of the speakers u should upgrade your head unit... Also sounds great with the tweeters.. [ WAYNE Feb 05, 2014 ]
