Our take on the Alpine SBS-05DC by Crutchfield's Ken Nail
If you're installing a mobile video system in a vehicle with a double-sized stereo opening in the dash, Alpine offers a clever solution with the SBS-05DC center channel speaker. Two midbass drivers and a soft-dome tweeter are mounted into a 2" tall enclosure that fits in your dash, delivering accurate sound for your multi-channel sound system.
Mount the speaker above or below your aftermarket stereo and you'll appreciate crisp, clear movie dialog, enhanced sound effects, and detailed highs. The SBS-05DC is an vital part of creating a pure 5.1 digital surround system in your vehicle. An installation kit is included.

Thanks for submitting your review
Product Overview: The SBS-05DC Center Speaker System consists of a high quality dash-mountable mobile speaker with dual 2" x 1.6" oval midrange drivers and a 1" balanced soft dome tweeter. It is designed for use as a center channel speaker for a mobile multi-channel surround sound system.
Speaker Design: The speaker is a self-contained unit which mounts to the dashboard of the vehicle using the included mounting base. The speaker is designed for horizontal mounting in an unused DIN opening in the vehicle. No speaker wire is included with this speaker.
Speaker Mounting: The speaker can be mounted in an ISO-DIN (Type I or J) or a Euro-DIN (Type E) dash opening. With the ISO-DIN mount, you will use the 4 supplied mounting screws to secure the speaker to the dash using the factory brackets. In a Euro-DIN mode, you will use the mounting sleeve and the gasket pads to install the speaker. The multiple bendable tabs on the sleeve can be used to secure the bracket into place. Once the sleeve is mounted, the speaker slides into the bracket.
