Item # 500SPS610C | MFR # SPS-610C
The sonic specialists at Alpine optimize their SPS-610C component 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. You can aim the separate silk dome tweeters toward you so that they deliver the strongest possible stereo image. Woofer grilles are not included — factory grilles are appropriate for most installations.
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.

Average Customer Review(s):
Sound is good. Installation was easy.
these are a great addition to changing the entire Sound Stage of your vehicle. the low to mid-range is precise and the high-end is very apparent. as much as I love these as a replacement, the tweeters are very delicate or they are not a very reliable driver. I have two sets of the 610c and they are in different vehicles. One is driven by me and the other is driven by my spouse. I have had one Tweeter failure in each vehicle. the systems are not used to turn up for loud volumes other than occasional "oh I like that song". other than that it is quiet listening. these are a very high sensitivity as well. I think that anyone who installs these in their vehicle will enjoy the reward however the high frequency failure rate is quite high in my opinion.
Pros: Clear, articulate, high sensitivity, clean install options
Cons: Tweeter failure rate very high. Needs high frequency level dropped about 2db
Product work great and was easy to install.
Installed these in a 2005 explorer w factory radio and sub all I can say is WOW. Made a world of difference clear and crisp sound all tru out volume.
Pros: All built in easy to mount and install.
Massive improvement over stock 2012 Nissan Leaf speakers. Added tweeters directly to door between door handle and a-pillar. Looks like it came that way if you didn't know better. Let the OEM tweeters installed and no loss from doing so. For the price you won't be disappointed, but don't expect it to rattle the car next to you. This is the second set I've installed into my vehicles, and feel like its a good balance between price and improvement over OEM, yet simple enough you don't have to get into an entire system build.
Pros: Price, easy install.
Cons: none so far
Sounds great and very easy installed.
Pros: Nice price and great quality!
Excellent speakers for the price point. You should use really them with an amplifier for the best results. Using them with my factory head unit there was virtually no bass response. Once my amp was installed (45W RMS) they really came to life. The lack of large external crossover helps simplify installation.
Pros: Clean highs and mids for the price.
Cons: Will most likely need more power than your factory head unit can provide to maintain bass response.
Good sound at a good price
Pros: Much better then stock sound
Cons: Cutting holes to mount the tweeters always sucks. I had car toys do it
I bought these through a third party vender, but used Crutchfield for fitment instruction. Crutchfield only mentions that you have to Re-drill mounting holes and Holes for tweeters (which is expected with a component speaker set). But if you have a 1994-2001 Dodge Ram 1500, 2500, or 3500 Regular Cab Pickup and you're mounting these speakers in the lower rear position, you need to know that the speakers are "6-1/2 and the standard mounting size in that position only allows for a "5-1/4 or maybe an even "6 comfortably, without modification. If you still plan on getting these, which I recommend, you will need to either buy or make a bracket or pound the sheet metal surrounding the speaker opening flatter on the bottom and top edge due to the surrounding rise. Good luck and enjoy!!
Pros: Great Sound quality, Crisp Highs, Smooth Mids, Hearty Lows! Perfect!
Cons: Not Alpines fault, but "6-1/2 didn't exactly fit my application.... oops! I made it work!! Tweeter connections before and after the bass blockers is odd, should have just left the connections out to allow consumer to connect their own way!
They sound good and arrived very quickly.
Pros: Clear highs.
Cons: Mid bass is kind of weak without an amp.
I'll start with the good: Alpine includes all the accessories and wiring to install these things very easily. The whole thing is plug and play. * The main thing that's bad about the speakers? The sounds they make. Extended break in did not help. I bought a calibrated measurement mic and ran frequency sweeps to see what was going on and confirm that I wasn't imagining it. I tested at various volumes to make sure it wasn't an amplifier issue. * Alpine pulls off the trifecta of cheap showroom audio: harsh highs, recessed mids, and overblown lows. Funny enough, the response actually measures basically flat between 40 Hz and 400 Hz, save for a cabin null. That's admirable, except that it's sitting at about 6 dB above the rest of the spectrum. That's quite a bit of bass boost, but at least it's flat. Then the response plummets to something like -12 dB in the 400-800 midrange, which messes up vocals completely. Lastly, the tweeter soars to a horrifying +12 dB at 4 kHz, right in the "icepick" range of the treble. Finally the response levels out before plunging into the -10 dB range above 10 kHz. * This isn't just a bad speaker. This is a textbook example of what cheap audio, meant to sound appealing in a showroom setting, is designed to sound like. At first listen they seem great. Low extension and bass boost, a spiky tweeter pretending to be "detailed", and mids that know nobody is listening. Crutchfield recommends using an amp with these. An amped system deserves bet
Pros: * Easy to install.
Cons: * Harsh tweeter * Overly loud low end * Recessed mids
Best deal going, easy install, great sound. Used the mounting rings in front door (predrill three 1/8" holes) and factory tweeter location. Mounted rear door speakers directly to the door panel with the oem screws and hole locations.
Pros: Super easy install and The crossovers are small cylinder shape. Makes for easy mounting inside the door panel. Great sound!
Pros: Great highs and mids for the price.
Cons: Although could have better install instructions.
The bass response for these speakers are extremely lower than my factory setup. The highs seems better except for the blown speaker that came out of the box. I have had a alpine system in every car that I have owned and this was completely disappointing to me. I was so disappointed with these speakers that I actually shut my radio off on my hour drive to work
Cons: everythingCrutchfield response on June 14, 2016 Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to help the customer. We'll either help him get these speakers working the way they should, or help him return it for an exchange or refund.
I installed these on my vehicle about 2 weeks ago now to replace my factory front door speakers that buzzed. The sound is very noticeably different on the high frequency with the tweeters producing more crisp and sharp tones rather than the softer warmer tones from softer tweeters. They appear to be good quality. I installed the speaker baffles and would recommend purchasing them if you are installing speakers on a vehicle like mine. So far they have been a big improvement over the original speakers and I feel they are worth the price so far, but I don't have very much use on them yet.
Pros: Great sound quality, especially in comparison to original speakers. Appear to be made with durable materials, but still have good response.
Cons: They are on the more expensive price range for me. On my vehicle installing them in place of the original tweeter requires a little extra work since the cutout hole for the original is larger than the Alpine tweeter. Not a big issue though.
These sound wonderful and appear to be solidly made.
Pros: Solidly built, clean sound.
Cons: None thus far.
Gosh, these are awesome! Love the built in crossovers. Solid bass, and mids... Easy to install.
Pros: Great bass, sound... Easy to install...
Cons: Directions on the box are brutal, but there are plenty of YouTube videos to help you out.
I had to knock my five star rating because of the way the tweeters came equiped. The Woofer and attached cross over used four spade connectors. Two for the AF coming from the stereo deck and two for the tweeter. The tweeter had one 1/8" spade connector, but the other wire had some sort of dagger fangled thing that only loosely fit the hole in the spade connector on the woofer. Removal was impossible without damaging the woofer connector, but too loose for a reliable long term connection. Wire cutters and a new 1/4" female spade connector and wire crimper was the only way to fix. Hack the factory connector off install new one. I also had to use a hole saw to drill a new installation hole as they didn't fit the factory tweeter location. I understand component speakers are a pain, I'd call it bordering on insanity.
Pros: They sound great, big huge improvement over the stock 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD Crew cab stock speakers
Cons: Supplied connectors for the tweeter were a joke, mounting options were a joke as well
Really love the sound compared to my stock speakers, definitely worth the price. Can't really compare these to any others as this is my first set of aftermarket stock location speakers.
Pros: Good sound and good price.
Cons: Non I've found yet.
Great replacement for factory speakers. I put these in my 2016 Tundra. Sound is night and day.
Pros: Price and sound
Cons: None so far
I love these speakers, I have a 2005 Honda S2000. And after 6 years of owning it I got tired of the speakers that were in it. I've had alpine speakers before so I knew what to expect. When I was younger I had an Alpine Type R 12" sub in my 300zx and that thing hit so hard. I grew out of that phase but the sound in the s2000 was missing something. Went pick a pair of these up from a local big box store today and got them installed. And found out that my speakers I had in the car were Kenwood components 5.5" and they had nothing on these as far as clarity and bass. Just with a head unit these are more sound than I could have imagined for my s2k. Thinking about getting them for my daily driver Acura RSX as well because I love them so much!
Pros: Unbeatable sound for the price, alpine always delivers!
Cons: No cons!
Speakers seem fine but wasn't plug and play. In order to put these speakers in you will need to purchase a bracket and drill one hole in the bracket or use the bracket given with the speakers and drill 2 holes into the door and attach with a bolt and nut. Crutchfield suggest a bracket used for another car and after playing with it trying to figure out how to attach it to the speaker, we decided that it may be more secure drilling a few holes in to the door. If you are not comfortable with this, use Crutchfields suggested bracket and note you may need more screws depending on how you want to secure it to the speaker. Also, you will have to cut some of the plastic out of the Subaru tweeter housing to fit the tweeters in. Even so we found the casing doesn't snap back in as easily because the tweeter is a little deeper. It seems stable enough though and doesn't look awkward. I guess we will see how well it stays in place as we drive. The speakers seem to work better than the factory installation, we will have to have our daughter let us know about this ;o).
Pros: Seem like a nice setup
Cons: Not a perfect fit but manageable
WHEN HOOKED UP RIGHT...THEY SCREAM GOODNESS....BUT AFTER AFEW ROUNDS BOTH MY TWEETERS BLEW SO IM GOING TO HAVE TO RETURN FOR SOMETHING ELSE
Cons: CANT TAKE THEHEAT
These speakers are perfectly driven by the factory dimension audio system (whatever wattage it is, I've found conflicting reports) without needing an amp, in a Veloster Turbo. Thats kind of a rare find. I normally expect to have to bypass the factory amp in my cars whenever I swap out the speakers. Its hard to find good information on what speakers fit this role for the car on the internet, but trust me. You will get so much more clarity if you use these when (and not if) the factory speakers blow. They were junk. And only 2 years old! In any case. You also will not need to worry about dynamatting or deadening, as the car is pretty well insulated and my pretty critical ears don't detect any. The job to install them however, should be left to a professional. In the installers words "If I knew how hard this was going to be beforehand, I would have charged you double". It took 5 hours to install the door speakers and rear speakers. Apparently the veolster is not the easiest thing to take apart. It seems that manufacturers have made what should be simple into a gigantic task that, even if you're good with the tools, has a lot of room for mistakes.
Pros: Fantastic bass clarity, not booming. Great treble and highs. Tested with a variety of music (cannibal corpse, blink 182, orbital) to try and find something to complain about. I couldnt find anything to complain about.
Cons: I can't stress this enough. Pay somebody to do the install if you have one of these cars.
I like them
Pros: fits and sounds good
Very clean. Have these in a 2010 Nissan Versa, hooked up to a Pioneer Class D 4 Channel amp pushing 100 watts RMS per channel giving these components the juice they need. I'm blown away at how crisp these are!!!!
Pros: Clean and Crisp!
all said and done, good speakers at reasonable price. installation was a bit of nightmare, as the instructions, are pretty much a caveman drawing. ended up having go to store to buy parts, also you need a hole saw to cut panel to make tweeters work !
Pros: good quality speaker
Cons: less than adequate instructions
I installed these in my '99 Durango and did it with relative ease. The sound is amazing and is exponentially better than the stock system. The speakers pack a pretty good amount of bass, and the tweeters really sound nice. Just an overall amazing upgrade especially for the money, and the install while time consuming is pretty straight forward.
Pros: Great sound, great price
i bought these speakers three years ago and put them in my 98 silverado. I had to do some mods to fit the tweeters in the factory location. The sound great but today I pulled my door cover off to replace my window motor and noticed the the out side surrounding on the woofer has started to fall apart. they still sound ok but not something I was expecting, an alpine product starting to fall apart after three years. I have never cranked the tunes up so there should be no reason for them to be tearing
Installed in my 1998 GMC Sierra Z71 pickup.These Alpine speakers have the quality sound that you would expect and were reasonably priced.
Pros: Very clear sound and easy to hook up.
Cons: The tweeters would not fit in my door where the factory tweeters were located, so I left them out. I had to use an adapter to mount the regular speakers in the door and the adapter didn't match up right with the mount area on the speakers. The speakers grille mounting holes lined up outside the diameter of the adapter when I went to mount the speakers. It was very frustrating but I eventually got the speakers mounted to the adapter. Be prepared to drill some holes in the adapter to make it work.
Crisp clear highs at all volume levels. Low levels have more punch with no distortion at middle to full range of volume levels.
These speakers sound great, and I can hear them over my 2. 15 subs these speakers get loud without clipping the online tweeter zip ties out of the way saving you time and making this install a breeze
Pros: Rich sound good bass
Excellent upgrade over factory boston acoustics,good lows great highs perfect speakers for the price
Pros: Excellent highs
Cons: all good
Crutchfield phone rep was really helpful in recommending these speakers. They are a much better upgrade over the stock speakers in my Silverado. Installation was a snap with a slight modification for tweeters which was expected
Pros: Great build quality. Reasonable price. Ease of installation.
They fit my 06 rear doors perfect. Alpine has aways had a great reputation....guess what...they should. These things have a super lot of head room solid base and realy clear highs. and the rice is better than one could expect. Cant beat these. and they can handle the power without clipping out at high volumes.
Pros: Cant say enough good about them.
Cons: It takes a bit of skill to mount the remote tweeters.
They do and do not fit. There were no installation instructions and so you have to figure it out. After you figure out the spacer situation, the door speakers fit well. As for the pillar speakers, you have to be creative to get them to fit. It would have been nice to have some installation instructions. Once I completed the install, the speakers sounded great.
Pros: Great sound.
Cons: No easy installation instructions.Crutchfield response on March 2, 2015 We're sorry to hear that you had some difficulty with the installation.

Installed in 2008 Honda . Also changed OEM head unit to a Pioneer FH-X720BT. Much better than my old audio system but I had nowhere to go but up. Crutchfield supplied everything I needed. Should have done this years ago.
Pros: Sounds so much better than the OEM speakers, especially in the mid range. I don't have sub woofers or any expensive components but these have been a great improvement. Thats all I was looking for.
Cons: none i can think of.
The mid bass is fine and clear, just what I expected. But the separate tweeters are way to bright. I had to turn down the amp and turn the treble on the head unit nearly off. They need a better crossover on the tweeters, they are way to over powering and bright.
Pros: Better than the factory I had which isn't saying much
Cons: Lacking a decent crossover for the separate tweeters.
For the most part these are pretty good speakers. In my current install they are not powered by a separate amp but an alpine UTE 52bt head unit, in this setup they are not very impressive on the low end. I added a kenwood ksc sw11 powered sub to make up for this since I don't want to lose space to a typical sub install, this has made up for the low end deficiency pretty well and there is a nice full sound now. My other complaint is that the highs are a bit brittle and were quite honky before spending time getting the eq right. The tweeters seem a bit overpowered for the woofer so i plan to look into options for balancing that out. All in all these are good speakers but if I didn't have a head unit with a comprehensive eq I may feel differently. Even though the sound is quite good if I had it to do over I would try a different set.
Pros: Clean crisp sound particularly upper mid to high frequencies.
Cons: Low end weak and highs were brittle/tinny even painfully honky before spending time with the eq
Super easy to install. Love that Crutchfield throws in the harness so you can use your factory wiring for free. Fit my door perfectly. Figured out a good spot for the tweeter. Also cool that the tweeter is housed in a little swivel enclosure, works great for finding that sweet spot. I installed this with the alpine CDE-143BT head unit, and they sound great together.
Pros: -easy install -sounds great
Installed these in a 2013 Honda Fit and they are amazing! The highs were a little bright until I turned on the auto volume leveling on my Pioneer head unit. Now they are perfect.
Pros: Component speaker with a great mid-bass and highs. Had everything to install the speakers from Crutchfield and alpine.
Cons: Had to drill holes in door to wire tweeter. Crutchfield install master sheet didn't mention that. No biggie.
Car: '07 MINI Cooper; standard sound system. I'd buy these again in a heartbeat! This component speaker set sounds 10X better than the factory speakers or my initial attempt to replace them! The Crutchfield representative I spoke with knew exactly what my frustrations were with the old speaker setup, and his recommendation concerning these Alpine speakers was spot on! Thanks!
Pros: The woofer fits in the doors w/ out an adapter, so the door panel fits back on correctly; the sound is much better than the JBLs I had. I made the mistake of going with 2 pairs of coaxial speakers in the doors. After reading the audio section on an internet website (MINI Forum), I read that two pairs of coaxial speakers can cause problems. Crossovers are mounted on the speakers, but there is an in-line component too, so don't forget to install it.
Cons: Cons: It took a little while to construct adapters for the tweeters using the universal plastic panel kit, but with the aid of my trusty Dremel tool and the 565 multipurpose cutting kit, the install came out perfectly. Installation instructions are nothing more that a series of cave-man drawings on the exterior of the box. Some text instructions to go along with the pictures would be nice.
Love them, they make a big difference. Good buy if your looking for new speakers
Was clear but flat sounding,put my old infinity reference speakers back in,a Much fuller sound
Cons: not a full sound,kind of flat
This product (alpine speakers) was a great fit for 1999 Mercedes Benz E320. The sound is wonderful and pure. Thanks for all your help in selecting this product.
Pros: Fast and accurate service. Very knowledgable of product for the perfect fit.
These are a great set of speakers, I set them up with a 75 x4 alpine amp and a 8inch road thunder sub, I am very pleased with the sound quality in my rav 4
Pros: Speaker performance
Cons: The mounting hardware for the rav 4
Great sound, great price
Pros: Looks good, sounds better
Cons: None yet
Great speakers! Great sound frequency. The only part of the process that made me slightly irritated was that the instructions sent for my vehicle were for the wrong area I wanted my speakers to be put in but I figured it out and they work fantastically!
I have these in my 2008 Ext. Cab Silverado and my new 2014 Jetta TDI. They sound great in both cars. They are the only speakers that I recommend now. And they are fairly easy to install since the crossover is small and does not have to be mounted specifically. They sound great!
Pros: Sound great! Not expensive for the quality. Sound great in any car. (I guess I said they sound great twice, whoops!) Crossovers are great.
All in all a good experience. Instructions are minimalistic and require imagination. It was fun and pushed me. Customer Service was great.
Pros: Well priced.
Cons: Instructions are minimalisti
I find the bass response from Alpine's Type S speakers to be excellent! Always impressed, even when running off a headunit's internal amp power (20x4). Off of the power pack, or even better a full 4ch amp these really come alive. They're very smooth, BUT a little brighter than their coax-counterparts. Mounting the tweeters are ear level on-axis can be a little harsh as some reviews mentioned, best to mount a little lower, like midway in the door panel of following the windshield's curve. This becomes less apparent when amped properly anyway, though. The crossover aren't anything to write home about either, but are easy to fit, of course since they're in-line. the tweeters also offer lots of mounting options. I like Alpine flush mount hardware more than almost any other brand.
Pros: Excellent bass from a speaker Good price and power handling Crossovers are small Works OK from headunit power, works great on an amp's power Come with Chrysler mounting brackets Good mounting hardware for tweeter
Cons: Crossover aren't amazing Tweeters can be tinny depending on mounting
Awesome sounding speakers in my crew cab gmc sierra. Best speakers as far as sound and quality for the price.
Pros: Great oem replacements
Cons: No external crossovers
Fabulous! These speakers, coupled with the 61/2" Alpine coaxials replaced the stock speakers in my wife's 2013 Mini Cooper S convertible and made a remarkable improvement in the overall sound of the system. The difference is night and day. The install was made by a local retailer.
Pros: Overall sound quality
Sound quality is amazing at great price
Pros: Comes with adapters and everything I needed to install
I bought these for a 2012 outback. The stock front speakers already had tweeters in the dash and mid/woofer in the door. The factory speakers have a single pair of wires leaving the head unit and somewhere in the dash they separate and the tweeter and woofer are wired in parallel. I bought these because I wanted to use the factory wiring as-is without having to mount a separate crossover. Overall I am happy with the ease of install and sound, I would have given a 4.5 if possible.
Pros: easy install and good sound, more bass than I would have thought
Cons: treble is a little tinny as others have stated but I wouldn't change them out.
Easy to install sounds great.
Purchased these for the front door with some SPS-510's for the rear. They sound worse than the stock speakers in my 2001 4runner Limited, muddled is the best description I can come up with. Using an Alpine head unit and a Rockford Fosgate PBR300x4. Swapped the paper-coned 14 year old stock speakers back in and they sound so much better. The Tweeters also are extremely tinny sounding and overpowering as others have said. I tried to muffle them by putting some foam in front of them and that helped a little.
Cons: Tweeter is too loud and tinny. Cones are muddled sounding. Installation required cutting and drilling.
Awesome product, super fast shipping!
Pros: Great value!
I loved this pair of speakers! I had them in my Frontier for 3 years with daily abuse and they held up perfectly. Let them break in and you will love them too.
Pros: In-line crossover means you won't have to run a ton of wires if your tweeter is in the A-pillar or dash instead of the door. Bass response is good (Once they're broken in) Sound good with minimal power (14RMS from deck)
Cons: Tweeters were a little bit harsh when wired in with the woofers normally. In my truck I was able to wire the tweeters as the front and the woofers as the rear and then fade to the rear a bit to get them how I liked them.
This system was a great improvement over the old factory speakers. Much tighter base and I can actually hear the highs, now. If I were to do it all, correctly, I would install an amp because the speakers need more power, than the original system, to sound their best.
Pros: Relatively easy installation. Greatly improved base response.
Cons: Hot gluing the tweeters into the factor grill locations was a downside and the woofers had to be placed, just so, to ensure the screws would hold in all four places.
Great speakers, a lot of mid and highs, works perfect with sub
Pros: Great mid and highs Easy installation Just a. All around great product!
Nice upper level mids, sound is good and light on the pocket book too, I can still buy beer!
Pros: Just loud enough
Cons: Depth may be an issue, for truck doors.
Great speakers for the price. The sound good, have nice range and are easy to install - the crossovers are small tubes that zip tie neatly to the wiring harness.
Pros: great sound, especially considering the price
Cons: installing separates is more work
They sound wonderful alpine is my new favorite brand to buy I am very happy with my purchase
The speakers gave my new Alpine system a great sound over the stock speakers. I installed the add on amp for my system and that helped to power the new speakers.
Pros: Ease to install, great sound, nice quality
Cons: None for me
Sounds great, great price. Excellent shipping and easy to install.
Great sounding replacements for a chevrolet crew cab
Pros: Easy install everything needed was in the box
Sound great off deck power, could only imagine what a solid amp would light them up to do
Pros: Not your high end speakers but they are good sounding for the price you pay.
Cons: None found thus so far
This speaker was an excellent match for my Alpine MRP-F240 amplifier and Alpine Alpine SPS-406 in rear. The bass was better than I expected and the tweeters are awesome! Installation was a easy, my only minor challenge was determining which adapters to use. Over all I am very satisfied with sound quality and installation.
Pros: Great Sound
Great set of speakers
Pros: Sounds great and a good price
Direct replacement for the factory speakers in my 2003 Sliverado crew cab. The directions from Crutchfield walked me through it with ease. They sound great to top it off.
Pros: Perfect fit replacing the factory door speakers. Great sound, so much better than the factory speakers. Decent price.
Super impressed! Always bought pioneer from walmart, I'll never do that again!
I was trying to find a good quality component system at a good price to replace a great sounding system that came stock with the car. These seemed to fit the bill. I've always liked Alpine and I was so glad I chose them. Now, I'm thinking of replacing the rest of the car's components with these.
Pros: Nice lows, crisp highs, easy install
Cons: None that I can think of
Easy to install. Sound much better than the factory speakers. Crutchfield tech support made it easy when I ran into a little trouble. Thanks for the great service Crutchfield!
Pros: Free adaptors
Sound great. Came fast and easy to install.
Pros: Sound good. Look nice. Easy to install
I love these speakers! I installed these in a 2004 Toyota Camry and the sound is incredible. Superb clarity and separation! These are hooked up to a Kenwood Excelon 797 receiver...no amp, but that's OK. I don't need one.
Pros: Superb sound. Easy to install. Reasonable price.
Cons: none yet.
these speakers are great! there are only a few others in this price range that sound comparable to these. i chose alpine for the reputation as well as my previous experience with their products.
attractive and high quality
Pros: high quality
Good clean sound with a quick easy install. Low price and great product.
Pros: Crisp clean sound
I currently have these attached to the factory head unit of my 2012 GMC Sierra - and are a significant improvement over the factory paper speakers (which were not horrific - considering this is a basic Work Truck). I did not use the factory tweeter mounting positions, but rather I drilled a 2" hole into the door 'sails', which allows you aim the tweeters at the occupants, rather than the windshield. The factory head drives these just fine for now ... but I will be installing a dinosaur Hafler amp to wake the system up a little. Will also be looking to upgrade the rear pillar speakers behind the front seats (standard cab) at that point too.
Pros: Neutral, well balanced sound...not harsh or boomy. Reasonably priced.
Cons: None yet ...
Does not work well with factory Stereo. Sounds "tinny". The rear speakers recommended by Crutchfield work great. I called tech support and the Tech new right off the bat that my factory system would not drive these speakers. Hmmm.... Not very pleased. Now I have to buy a new stereo and an adapter for the steering wheel controls.
Cons: In spite of recommendation, these do not work well with the factory stereo.
These speakers are a great upgrade from my factory ones. After overhauling everything else about my system, I figured it was time to finally ditch the cardboard Volkswagen 20-watt speakers and get something that could handle more power. I can easily say I was not at all disappointed by these! the sound quality is very clear and detailed with the separate tweeters. Bass response is a little lacking, but nothing a subwoofer can't fill in for you (mid-bass is very nice). I have these hooked in to a 75-watt/channel amplifier and they BUMP! Even with the volume up as high as I can stand it, the soundscape is clear and full and the dynamic range is at a comfortable level that doesn't pain you to listen to. Silk tweeters balanced very nicely via the crossover. Crossover is easy to mount/ziptie to something in your door. I stuck mine to some existing window control wires and have heard no interference when using the windows. The crossovers are pretty well shielded and let the tweeter actually produce a decent amount of sound without over-emphasizing the super high-end treble that makes my ears hurt (anyone with plastic tweeters knows what I mean... yuck!!). I know these aren't the greatest possible speakers in existence (I wish Klipsch made car speakers), but for the money, you'll definitely be satisfied. Best example of clarity: analog/vinyl-esque clicks and pops... made me think something was wrong with how I mounted the tweeters... but they're just that good!
Pros: clear, loud, well built, comes with TONS of extra mounting hardware for any situation. Foam adhesive pads and circles were a nice touch and hold my tweeters in place very nicely in factory locations.
Cons: Tweeter wire is VERY long. I suppose it is better than being too short, but I had to get clever with zip ties and tucking to get it all out of the way. Kind of a con... but if you ever have to disconnect the terminals, you have to insert a flat tool in the terminal connectors to get them undone or else they will NOT come off.
These speakers sound great! You get a lot of bang for your buck. And the built in crossover for the tweets fit just about any where. I totally recommend these speakers.
Pros: Great sound, and come with everything you need to mount the tweets
Cons: I haven't found any yet.
This is my first time buying Alpine speakers, but I've always heard nothing but good things about Alpine and these speakers are no different. I've had them installed for a little over a week now with no issues. Got an Alpine Receiver matched with the Alpine Power Pack for my door speakers. Have these installed in the front doors of my Chevy Silverado Ext. Cab. Easy install. Speaker harnesses make it a clean install with no wire splicing. These things are loud!! Lots of clarity with no distortion, even at high listening levels, which you could expect from a good set of component speakers such as these. I have a 10" sub @ 200 Watts RMS in a sealed enclosure, so I'm not using these door speakers for bass. This system meets my listening standards. I listen to everything from metal, to rock, to country, and sometimes the occasional hip hop song. I like it very loud, crisp, clean sounding like it was meant to be heard. Arrived when expected. Great price. Very satisfied with my purchase. Would definitely recommend to a friend.
What a difference these speakers make! I've installed many speakers in my vehicles over the years, Sony, Polk, Pioneer, and Kenwood. These Alpines are by far the best. The speakers are very crisp and accurate. They're great for acoustical music and vocals. Instillation of the woofer was a breeze with Crutchfield's speaker mounting bracket. I stealth mounted the tweeters in the factory location. It did required some minor cutting of the plastic around the factory speaker bracket, but it wasn't a big deal. I then used some epoxy to glue the Alpine bracket to the inside of the pillar and the tweeter slipped into the bracket. You can't go wrong with these speakers.The sound is phenomenal and the installation was relatively easy.
Pros: Great speaker for the money.
These speakers provided a nice upgrade to the factory VW speaker system in the 2004 Jetta wagon. Fuller bass range and crisper mids/highs than the OEM stuff (even with the factory Monsoon head-unit/amp). Installation was fairly straightforward except for a few variances from the MasterSheet. For the front doors, these speakers are not compatible with the adapters provided-- but an easy workaround is as follows: -per the MS, remove the factory speakers and place the speed clips (with a bit of hack-saw ingenuity, not mentioned in the MS) -the speakers come with mounting brackets/rings ; break off the tabs along the outside of the "ring"; use a properly sized drill bit to drill out the threads of the brass mounting eyes. -align the mounting slots on the speaker rim over the brass holes and those two things over the speed clips. -use the long screws included with the speaker kit to attach the speaker + mounting ring to the door (via speed clips) It is also possible to replace the tweeters in the "sail" with the included tweeters. Remove the sail (one screw and a clip). Use a knife to separate the in situ tweeter (this an irreversible process) from the sail. Use contact cement or similar adhesive to attach the tweeter to the sail. Re-wire with your choice of connectors. Rear door tweeters can be replaced in a similar but not identical fashion. Rear door installation of the larger speakers is as in the MS.
Pros: Great sound and a lovely upgrade. Plays nice and clear at higher volumes.
Cons: Slightly more vehicle modification than expected, but not too difficult.
Great sounding component speakers. Installed them in my 01 GMC Sierra, replacing factory speakers. Bass speakers mounted easily with provided bracket. Tweeters were a little more involved as the factory tweeters were integrated into their mounting. I used a rotary tool to remove the tweeter from the bracket, then mounted the new one with one of the many mounting options provided from Crutchfield.
Pros: Good bass for the size of the speaker 6 3/4 overall the set delivers a nice crisp sound.
I bought these to replace the stock "Premium" Pioneer speakers installed in my 2007 Honda Civic EX Coupe. The stock pioneers were more than adequate, considering that most stock sound systems are not that great. However, after almost 140,000 miles of use when the stock headunit became possessed, it was time to overhaul the entire system. I hot glued the tweeters into the stock locations in the dash, which has worked well for over a month. These speakers sound very good, although I needed to carefully set the crossover on my new JVC headunit around 60Hz to get the best bass out of these. If you don't set the crossover and send all frequencies to these, they don't sound quite as good. If you're looking for better bass, there are better choices out there. You will probably need to have a sub installed with these to get the real low-end. NOTE: 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.
Pros: Crisp, bright sound with just a touch of bass with proper crossover settings. Excellent clarity.
Cons: Just a touch of bass...you'll want a subwoofer to go with these.
Required a bit of bodging to get the tweeters to work in the factory openings (on a curved section of door panel) otherwise the only thing I would've liked is access to phone support during the evening hours on a Friday. However the speakers sound much better than the tired OEM ones that were there.
Replacing the factory speakers in a 2006 Honda Accord LX was the right thing to do. The difference in the sound quality was exceptional
Pros: Clarity and sound is crystal clear
Cons: Trouble with one tweeter two days after installation and I recommend purchasing aftermarket speaker cables instead of those sent with the speakers.that connect to the factory harness designed for a 2003-07 Honda Civic. purchasing speaker cables
Replaced my factory spkrs in my 2008 crew cab chevy 3500 (without Bose) front doors w/pillar tweeters, when I purchased these I thought I would have to add speaker wire between woofer & tweeter ,turned out I didn't have to. I removed my old tweeter , used a hot glue gun to hold new tweeter in place (seems to work just fine) I still have factory deck but these sound a lot better than factory. I also replaced rear speakers at the same time , the factory deck don't seem to push much wattage to rear channels, but altogether it sounds better than factory by far !! If I upgrade to a new deck and a 4 chan. amp (around 50 amps per ch.) I think it would improve a lot , and get full perf. out of all 4 speakers . But sounds good now w/ no distortion even at high volume ranges
Pros: Easy install even with running new wire to new tweeter.Sounds great !
These speakers rock. Love the add-on tweeters that come with them. Made an extra hole n next to no clearance needed.
Pros: Sound, installation
Thx C F fits and sounds great thats why i stay with u grate job hunter thx for ur help Donnie
Bought 2 of these speakers to replace the crappy paper stock ones in my 2008 Mugen. What an amazing improvement in sound. Night and day difference. Magnets on these speakers were about 4 times larger than stock. I will definelty be buying 2 more for the rear
Cons: A little bit tough to install even with the speakers brackets
THESE SPEAKERS ARE INCREDIBLE.I MOUNTED THE TWEETERS IN THE UPPER DOOR PANELS OF MY CHEVY SILVERADO.THESE SPEAKERS HANDLE ANYTHING AND SOUND AMAZING.VERY CLEAR.HAD TO MOUNT A SUB IN THE BACK TO GET THE BASE NOTES AND I DONT KNOW HOW I EVER LISTENED TO MUSIC WITHOUT A SUB.THANKS DAISY FOR THE SUGGESTION.
Pros: SOUND GREAT,FIT GREAT
install easy nice sound
I have a Nissan Sentra, I originally replaced the factory speakers with pioneers two ways but I wasn't getting the sound that I was looking for, then a sale associate at Crutchfield recommend these particular model, and he was right. I love the clear and crispy sound that comes out of these speaker, I'm really happy with my purchase. Thank you Crutchfield.
Pros: The best money ever spend on speakers.
Cons: Had a little trouble placing the tweeters.
These Alpine component speakers are sounding great. I listen to everything from Metallica and Rage to Waylon and Cash to Eminem. All of these different genres sound good! Installing the woofers was a breeze. The tweeters on the other hand took some time. I was able to take tin snips and cut the factory tweeter away from the bracket, then use a dremel to file down the pieces I cut. The Alpine tweeters fit through the opening and the lock nut screwed on and hold them in place very nicely. By doing this I didn't have to make a bracket, the factory one with the new tweeter went right back on the door. I mistakenly found out that if you cut the factory tweeter wire, at the speaker, tape the red and black wire off, and plug the factory tweeter harness back into the factory plug it came out of it, will allow the new tweeter and woofer to work by attaching the Alpine woofer and tweeter speakers together like they should be. I didn't have to cut, splice or connect any wiring other than from the factory tweeter I had taken apart anyway. Maybe just by having the factory tweeter harness connected keeps the speaker circuit in tact. All I know is it works! and sounds great! All the electric windows and door locks work too! lol
Pros: Sound quality
Installed these in the front doors of my 08 Ram 1500 Quad Cab. Drilled holes in the door panels for the tweeters and they installed very simply. Looks almost like stock. The treble is excellent, and the high mids are very clear and concise. Still tweaking the EQ settings on my stereo to get it perfect.
Pros: Clear treble, and mids.
Cons: Not quite so much lower mid bass levels. That's probably because I don't have it hooked up to an amp, just my aftermarket Jensen head unit. Factory speakers were louder, however didn't sound nearly as "complete"
These componants sound great in my 08 gmc sierra i have them in the front doors and in the rear doors and the sound is amazing
These speakers deliver far better sound than the factory units. The installation was very easy on my girlfriends 2008 Dakota. The speakers dropped right in the factory location and Crutchfield included the speaker wire adapter at no charge.
Pros: Great sound, no hassle install
Good stuff. matches well with alpines i have in the rear. I think I may want to add a sub though.
Pros: clear on all levels. I would recommend them to anyone
Cons: a little trouble fitting though they were recommended for my vehicle. Distorts when levels hit a little more then half up (20-21 on scale of 35. Speakers peak out at about 27 I think that would be expected though.
The sound form these speakers are clear and crisp. They provide perfect mids and highs and compliment the pair of 6.5" coaxials I have in the rear towers. The price is quite reasonable for the quality and brand.
Pros: great quality, great sound, good handling power
great speakers at a great price you wont be dissapointed
Great sounding speakers. Fit good on fj cruiser
Pros: Great sound good fit, great price
Cons: Tweeters are a little overpowering but can b tuned for
These take decent amounts of power and sound great. I have them mounted in doors with XTC baffles behind them and they perform well at all volume levels. I LOVE them!
Pros: Efficient and balanced
They sound great and fit like a glove in my 01 Tahoe. I will be purchasing another pair for my 95 K1500.
love these speakers. I own a Scion Xb and am currently customizing it to sound great and ride great. My ultimate goal is to make it into a road trip car. I bought these because alpine have always sounded good to me and these come component and 2way.
Pros: great sound
Cons: finding an amp to properly power these speakers
Great speakers easy to install, and blow the factory speakers away, I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to replace factory speakers.
Best sounding speakers I've heard in over 30yrs, perfect highs great mids and no muddy sound, put them in my 2001 gmc sierra and my sound system came alive.
Pros: easy to install
This component set is sweet. Clean sound, awesome mounting package for pretty much any vehicle and sounds better louder!
Pros: Easy install with included kit. Low THD Clean sound.
Cons: Swivel kit for tweets break easy if you pry instead of twist off. Did not say to twist. If you don't need the swivel kit then no biggie!
The speakers sound very nice. I put them in my 04 Avalanche and where very easy to put in. The lows and highs are great. If u like some bass these are perfect. If you like a lot of bass them get a sub...
Pros: Fast and easy sound great. The crutchfield call support is great.
Great speakers for the money. No comparison to factory junk speakers after you install these youll see how terrible they are! Real crisp highs and mids and decent base. Wouldn't say its quite as nice as the Bose system in the Denali's that ive rode in, but not far behind with not having an amp and installing to a factory radio! Installation took a little time but wasnt terrible, running the speaker wire through rubber between the door and the A pillar is a tight fit but it will work. I wanted to mount the tweeters in the factory location so had to do that. A little modification was required to fit the tweeters to the widow pillars, trim the inside of the tweeter grill with a exacto and hot glue it in place it will just barely go in there but it looks like factory when its done. I paired these up with the two way 610s in the rear doors which were simple to install very happy with all of it sounds great!
Pros: Sounds great real nice improvement for the price(front and back)
Cons: Can't think of anything but a the time it takes to install plan a half day for the front anyway
Sounds good. Bass is firm. Treble is great, no distortion so far.
Pros: Great highs
Cons: Could use more bass but decent for this size speaker
Bought some to go in the front door and back seat locations, and they fit and sound great in both locations! The back seat location will only use the mid-range speakers. Once again, however, Crutchfield is incorrect. For the front door locations, you do not have to bypass the Monsoon amp. The stock speakers are mounted coaxially, but are set up as component speakers, so they get both a mid-range and tweeter signal. Just look on Google for the wiring diagrams so you know which wires are for the tweeter signal, and which are for the mid-range.
real nice set
Great speakers for mids and highs, really good clarity compared to the stock speakers that Chevy puts in their trucks.
Pros: Great quality construction and sound
I bought these speakers to put in the front door of my 98 Chevy Prism, and I could not be more impressed. I custom mounted the tweeters in the top of the door using a 2" hole saw to cut a spot for them. The tweeters were far easier to mount than I was expecting because of the ring that they came with to screw on behind the door. All I had to do was cut the hole, and screw on the ring! It improved my sound stage drastically and added an incredible amount of clarity to my music that I didn't even know I was missing before. FYI I have subwoofers so I have no idea how these speakers perform on the lower end of the bass. However, speakers this size aren't made for super low frequencies so that wasn't something I was looking for to begin with.
Pros: Fantastic clarity in both the high, midrange, and mid-bass frequencies. Everything was fairly easy to install.
Cons: The mounting bracket Crutchfield sent didn't work with these speakers because the screws included were too short. However, I was able to use the bracket that came in the Alpine box. Everything worked out great in the end.
Installed these speakers in all 4 door panels, in my 2008 Chevy HD Crew Cab. I flush mounted the tweeters towards the top of the door panel, which required a 2" hole drill bit. I replaced the factory radio with an Alpine 2 DIN stereo (CDE-W235BT). I am powering the new components with a 4 channel Alpine amp, which is rated at 75 watts per channel. For a subwoofer, I chose the JL Audio 8" microsub powered by a 300 watt Alpine mono amp. These speakers sound awesome. The sound is truly amazing over the factory Bose system they replaced. I couldn't be happier.
Pros: Great price, sound, and quality
Cons: None that I can think of.
These speakers were a bit of a pain to install. Alpine sends no directions and the supplied Master Sheet was less than helpful, except for pulling off the door panels. For my model of SUV, 2000 Durango, I had to use the factory spacers and take apart the stock assembly. No big deal but as a first timer and no directions it took me some time to figure out what to do. The left window bracket will prevent you from installing speaker in the front door so you'll need the spacer. I put these in with a 4 channel amp. I turned the amp all the way to zero across the board during the install. When I first turned on the stereo I was thinking, "Yeah that sounds alright." Then I tuned the amp and what a difference, it was like opening the door to a concert in truck. For the rear doors I put in Polk Audio's DXi650s. They are a great compliment to each other as the Polk pick up a bit more of the base. I'll be adding 2 Kicker 10's to this system with it's own dedicated amp splitting the power. Half going to each 10. These speakers will eventually be used to only pick up the mid's and highs. If you plan to use these speakers definitely get an amp to power them, your factory deck won't cut it, and you'll be glad you did. Also, the directional tweets are a nice touch, but you'll need to be creative about where you're going to mount included crossover.
Pros: Great sound, lots of extra parts to help with install
Cons: No directions from Alpine of Crutchfield to assist with install. You may need to be creative.
I bought the Alpine SPS-610C and Alpine SPS-610 speakers a few weeks ago, upgrading all front and rear door factory GM speakers in my 2006 Pontiac Torrent. I replaced the front component speakers with the Alpine SPS-610C, and the rear with the Alpine SPS-610 two-ways. The sound difference is amazing! I am pleased with the difference. I am totally happy with my Alpine SPS-610C speakers, but one thing I am not happy about is the tweeters. As someone has already mentioned, the tweeters are almost too overpowering. Not enough bass and too much treble for me personally. Also, when I turned the volume up on my head unit (Pioneer DEH-3400 UB), the tweeters would make this annoying crackling noise- I could barely turn my speakers up past 30 on the volume level- even after reducing treble. After trying to mess with the audio settings for quite some time, I finally gave up on the tweeters and put the stock tweeters back in. The stock ones do not crackle, even with the volume up, which kinda upset me because aftermarket tweeters, I would think, should be able to handle that kind of power. Other than that, the woofers are great, and the two-ways are great as well.
Pros: Great sound, woofers & two-way speakers can handle well at high volume
Cons: Tweeters aren't the best
Excellent upgrade from stock "Premium" sound system. I used SPS-610C with XTC baffles in the front doors and SPS-406 with 800hz Bass blockers, XTC baffles in the rear, retained the stock radio. Sounds great!! THANKS Kevin. As soon as I save up my allowance I'll be getting a new receiver. an Alpine CDE-HD137BT maybe.
Pros: Easy to install. The hardest part was getting the door panels off, with breaking them and repairing the damage a previous owner did. Everything is included from Crutchfield, wiring adapters, generic instructions. Excellent customer service. THANK YOU THANK YOU
Cons: Alpines instructions. REALLY pictures only, I can read. Lots of left over parts with NO explanation as to where, when or why to use them.
I was looking for an upgrade from the stock 6.5" speakers and I decided to get these. They are easy to install yourself, though don't count on the directions packet as modifications are not included in the instructions. However, the tweeters are small and fit nicely between the metal door frame and the vinyl covering, and the screw on retainer makes installation a cinch. I would recommend using a drill press if you nee to drill a hole and you will need a 2" cookie cutter bit. Oh, and get the grills. Highly recommended for the price.
Pros: good value, clear, thoughtful setup, easy installation
I have a 2009 Acura TSX Technology Package. If you too have one you understand the need for upgraded speakers. The Alpine SPS-610C is a great upgrade. The sound is so much clearer. I did not need an aftermarket amplifier. The Alpine speakers are completely compatible with my factory set up and the installation is simple. Everything still looks stock. I would highly recommend this upgrade.
Pros: Excellent sound. Price doesn't break the bank.
These replaced the OEM speakers in a 1998 Nissan King Cab. The original speakers stopped working so I thought I'd try this as a replacement. Install was easy and sound better than the OEM ever did.
Pros: All good
I must say, these are quite the speakers. They are constructed very nicely and you can tell from the sound that they produce! WOW! I shopped around for a WHILE reading many reviews on various speakers and finally went with these. Boy, am i glad i did! For this price, i dont think you can find a better speaker out there! and to my surprise these speakers have a very decent amount of mid and high bass, but the low is lacking a little, although that is expected with a 6 1/2" speaker! I have these in my front doors along with the 2-way 610's in the back doors, all powered by my aftermarket sony deck. Overall a great buy and i would definitely not hesitate to buy again. and again. and again!!! You can definitely be confident in your purchase of these speakers!
Speakers fit well and sound very good. Install took longer than I had hoped, but notes said some customization would need to be done. First door took a couple of hours the second door took 20 minutes!
Pros: Sound good and had all the tools to make them fit. I would buy again.
Cons: Tweeter was a complete new install cutting a hole in the door trim -- looks great though. Took a while to figure out.
I just have them running on a factory deck so I know the quality is going to subpar. Overall they sound great even on factory setup. Can't wait for my deck to see what they can do, but sound is really crisp no rattle they handle miss very well, the tweeters are crystal clear for your highs. The speakers will handle some bass if your not running them on a dedicated amp. Verdict is great product for the money if you want clean sound without breaking the bank.
Pros: Clean sound for price
Cons: Tweeter crossover kinda bulky.
Excellent sound quality, far better than the "old" Bose they replaced.
Pros: Dollar for dollar an excellent value. Great sound quality for the dollar. If you're going to add Amps, I would take a step or two up from these.
Cons: None really.
I bought these off of crutchfield and they are great! I have an Infinti g35 and I have these it the front door and have alpine type s 6.5 2-ways in the back, I have them powered by a jl500 watt amp and I love the sound! Well worth getting!!!
I replace the factory speakers on the front doors of my 2005 chevy suburban and I love them i'm glad I had select the alpine speakers the quality its just great the sound got a lot of improvement and the installation was very easy with instructions I got with my package I will never regret now i'm thinking to replace the ones on the rear door too
Pros: The quality on the sound its amazing
After careful consideration and a little help from the audio geeks at "The Field" I made the purchase. Installation was the easiest in my 2002 Nissan Pathfinder (rear doors) the adapters were spot on perfection. Now, the sound...the sound is great highs, mid's and lows are all showcased with this pair. Once the wife gives the green light they will be my choice for the front doors as well. Get this set and enjoy your music all over again.
The woofers sound fine, but in my install the tweeters are in sail panels. The tweeters are overpowering the woofers and even the subwoofer in my install. Reducing the treble setting to -5 helped, but the balance of the tweeters to the woofer is still way out of balance. The tweeters are very sibilant. After a couple weeks of installing them, I built -6 db L pad circuits to tone down the tweeters. This has helped to improve the balance. Perhaps if the tweeter were mounted closer to the woofer, it may improve the balance out of the box. If I had it to do again, I think I'd look for component speakers with a real crossover network that has a built in l pad adjustment.
I must say this kit was a big jump from pioneers or anything I had before the quality was outstanding, it comes with a lot of different parts incase you didn't have tweeters before and your mounting some for the first time along with a lot of brackets and things to help the install. No real instructions that I could find but I have installed before so it wasn't a problem. One major thing though please if you are amping these do not push them right away, wear them in little by little till you get the right power and pitch you desire otherwise they are bond to blow. Another thing, just because they say peak 240 don't put that kind of strain on them I have mine running at 160 watts at 45 Hz and they sound great.
Installed in the front of my 11' Cruze Eco. Sound improved 100%. No amp installed. Not needed. Exactly what I wanted.
Installed the alpine sps 610c components in the front doors of 2008 ford falcon using the factory head unit and they sound 300% better than stock speakers. They have great highs mids and pretty good lows. Sound much better than i expected. They compliment the sps 600 coaxials in the rear doors. Also have the ktp 445 45watt x 4 power pack amp. Would highly recommend these speakers for the price

I have owned just about every one of Alpine's component speakers in sizes 5" and up, if they fit in your car, the only question is what model fits your budget. I have found that putting the best ones in the front and the more budget priced in the rear is a great combination. I always use the Alpine PowerPack and the combo is sweet. You won't blow the windows out but you will not regret the crispness of the drum hits and the smooth sounds that well located components from Alpine can bring! [ Daryl Dec 21, 2016 ]

The tweeters and woofers in the non-Bose system are wired in parallel with the crossover for each built into the speaker. Not using the Alpine crossovers could have been what caused them to get damaged. Also, I would not expect a big change in volume levels and trying to get more volume than you did before could have caused them to blow as well.

You'll want to connect the leads for each speaker in the same manner to ensure each driver will be in phase with the others. The tweeters have pre-attached "quick slide" connectors to help ensure you connect them properly. I hope that helps!

I believe you're describing the crossovers for the tweeters. Each one should be wired in line on one side of each tweeter. [ Kevin Dec 29, 2015 ]
Those should be the wiring from the main speaker to the tweeter. The cylindrical piece I think is some kind of capacitor to keep the high frequency to the tweeter only. Your factory harness should plug into a supplied wiring adapter and that should plug into the main speaker so no splicing is necessary. I hope that helps. [ ROBERT Dec 28, 2015 ]
I Believe that's the crossovers for the tweeters [ CRAIG Dec 28, 2015 ]

They will work, whether or not they work "well" will depend on the factory stereo. They are good quality speakers that will sound good as long as the signal being sent to them is a quality signal from a quality stereo. Hope that makes sense. In other words your speakers are limited by the sound quality of the stereo and factory stereos can sound great and they can sound like crap depending on the car. bottom line, I'd upgrade your stereo as well but you will almost assuredly hear a great improvement by upgrading to these speakers.

Yes. Sound great with factory stereo. [ DYLAN Oct 09, 2015 ]
Worked great with my 2003 GM factory receiver and a powered subwoofer. [ Robert Oct 09, 2015 ]
They absolutely will. I installed them in my 03 silverado. They did ok. Then I realized my factory stereo didn't sound so great. So I replaced it and now those speakers sound awesome. Plenty of base with good mid range sound. I have tweeters up front to round out the overall sound in the truck. Install was very easy and straightforward as well. [ Jose Oct 09, 2015 ]
Yes, I have a factory radio on my car! It works just fine. [ ELAINE Oct 09, 2015 ]
4ohms per woofer, 4ohms per tweeter and 4ohms connected as a woofer/tweeter set. [ WESLEY Sep 16, 2015 ]
Yes they come with them. About a 3 inch rectangle box. I mounted mine in my dash with double sided tape and zip ties to be safe. 07 trailblazer [ MICHAEL May 14, 2015 ]
The crossover comes with the speakers. I was able to stuff the crossover in the car door armrest. I think the separate tweeter, woofer, and crossover combination provides the best performance without replacing the car's built in head unit. [ JAMES D May 14, 2015 ]
It has a built-in inline coil crossover. So you wont have to buy a separate one, unless you want more options in a physical crossover. [ MATTHEW May 14, 2015 ]
It does come with the crossover [ DAVID May 14, 2015 ]

I just let it lie in-line with the wire path. [ CHARLES G Mar 10, 2014 ]
What I did was put the crossover right on top of the plastic speaker adapter and actually used tape. Not the best solution, but I was more worried about getting it to stay there until I got the door panel back on. No issues after that. [ MATTHEW Mar 10, 2014 ]
ROLL UP AND TIE WRAP [ BARRY Mar 10, 2014 ]
I actually sent mine back as I got a different component set, but best is to call technical. They really do know their stuff. [ ALAN Mar 09, 2014 ]
I actually had some leftover strips of DynaMat from my install on the car. Kinda just glued the crossovers down using the DynaMat strips if that helps. [ DAVID R Mar 09, 2014 ]
A simple solution is to use two nylon wire ties. [ WILLIAM Mar 09, 2014 ]
Hot glue or tape to side of speaker mount.I hot glued them to the door speaker bracket on side of it so it didn't interfere with anything inside door and twist tie extra wire from crossover. [ MICHELLE Mar 09, 2014 ]
I just let it hang in the door [ MICHAEL Mar 09, 2014 ]
Don't let them just hang this well cause stress on your wires and over a short time the wires well brake I used some plastic zip ties to hold in place. I used longer ones to reach and cut off the extra. Not sure what vehicle your installing them in but make sure you have everything secure in your door panels other wise it well rattle and make noise and then you'll be doing it all over again I hope this helps good luck and great choice in speakers I have mine in a 2001 GMC and they sound great.
