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.

Priced per pair

Sound coming is great. Definitely feel more bass with these and the mid range is great for these speakers. Haven't blasted them yet as I want it to break in properly but I think these are gonna sound great once I do. Very happy with my purchase. Oh and install was super easy.

Features

Poly-Mica Woofer Cones: Each woofer 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: The 1" wide-range silk dome tweeters offer clean, non-fatiguing sound even under extreme high frequency demands.

Tweeter Mounting Options: The tweeters can be flush mounted using the supplied flush mount bracket and ring. Once mounted, the tweeters can swivel approximately 30° for optimum imaging. The tweeters can also be mounted in factory tweeter locations behind factory tweeter grilles using the supplied stealth mounting bracket.

  Flush Mount (swivel) Factory Location (bottom mount) Factory Location (top mount)
Mounting Depth 0.663" 0.789" 0"
Mounting Height 0.440" N/A 0.806"
Cutout Diameter 2.004" 1.716" N/A
Frame Diameter 2.275" 2.668" 2.587"

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

Crossovers: The Alpine SPS-610C features low-pass crossovers attached to each woofer's input terminal and high-pass crossovers in-line with the tweeters' speaker wires.

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Replacement of corroded aftermarket speakers. [ Harvey  May 09, 2017 ]
I like alpine stuff always have [ michele  Apr 20, 2017 ]
tech shawn s advice [ roy  Mar 05, 2017 ]
good up grade from factory speakers [ Lewis  Mar 01, 2017 ]
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 ]
To replace a blown speaker and a better quality of music [ Zona  Oct 20, 2016 ]
have alpine hu and alpine power pack.....liked both and wanted to stay with same manufacturer. [ david  Sep 27, 2016 ]
good quality, strongly recommended, should be more than enough. [ Sean  Jun 28, 2016 ]
Excellent brand and reviews, plus buy one get one free, that's a winning combo! [ Tj van der  Jun 07, 2016 ]
Quality [ robert charles  Jun 05, 2016 ]
It fits my custom application, and with such small speakers, Alpine was my choice for power handling, reviews, and sound quality for my whole full-range system. [ Valerie  May 24, 2016 ]
These are installed in my Jeep to help overcome the large tires and lack of sound deadening. [ Vincent  May 05, 2016 ]
Alpine is the best bang for the buck when you don't have the need to go high end [ allen  Mar 30, 2016 ]
Great reviews. Great Price. [ Bryan  Mar 24, 2016 ]
Tweeters can replace the small speakers on the dashboard [ Manuel  Mar 15, 2016 ]
I wanted speakers that would require me to amplify them to use the but gave me room to do it later, these speakers say they will play from 2 - 80 watts rms [ gomezj22  Feb 22, 2016 ]
They had good reviews & I wanted a good sounding component speaker system. [ John  Jan 25, 2016 ]
Alpine's reputation for quality and sound [ Edward  Jan 17, 2016 ]
Had all the features I wanted. Looking forward to upgrading from the stock speakers. Good price, good features [ Gary  Jan 04, 2016 ]

[ Kenny  Jun 02, 2017 ]  Staff
The cutoff frequencies of the supplied crossovers are not published by Alpine. Together, the midbass drivers and tweeters have a combined frequency response of 70-22,000Hz. If you need to know the crossover points, you may be able to get them by contacting Alpine directly: 800-257-4631 I hope that helps. My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=5 [ Ryan  Apr 05, 2017 ]  Staff
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. Feel free to call an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 a personal recommendation on a system. HTH! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101 [ Paul  Sep 26, 2016 ]  Staff
They have HD Polymer frames if that's what you were asking. I felt they were very sturdy and strong. I have been very happy with them [ Dennis  Jun 28, 2016 ]
For additional details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle. [ Kenny  Apr 16, 2016 ]  Staff
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! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=5 [ Ryan  Mar 09, 2016 ]  Staff
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. [ Christian  Oct 10, 2015 ]
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 ]
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. [ BRUCE  Mar 09, 2014 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on built in amp vs. purchasing an amp I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system. [ Krissy  Feb 26, 2014 ]  Staff
