6-1/2" 2-way car speakers
For 6-1/2" and 6-3/4" openings
Our take on the Alpine SPS-17C2 by Crutchfield's Ken Nail
Alpine's Type-S speakers combine outstanding materials and construction with an attractive price. Their efficient design provides powerful sound even when system power is low yet beefy internal parts ensure they can handle it when you crank the volume.
But powerful output doesn't count for much if you don't like what you're hearing. The SPS-17C2 6-1/2" speakers are bound to please your ears pivoting silk dome tweeters direct clear highs to your ears without a hint of harshness. The aluminum-coated woofer cones move freely in the air-injected rubber surrounds for full, strong, and accurate bass response.

Even though these are not available anymore, I bought them in 2007 for my 1999 GMC Sierra door speakers, these sound awesome, still 10 years later, even with my stock stereo. I made a great purchase back in 2007.

Aluminum-coated Polypropylene Woofer Cones: Each speaker features an aluminum-coated polypropylene woofer. Aluminum adds strength and heat resistance to polypropylene, resulting in reduced distortion and improved reliability.
Air-injected Rubber Surrounds: For a smoother response and improved durability, the woofers use air-injected rubber surrounds.
Silk Dome Tweeters: Each speaker uses a 1" silk dome tweeter for smooth high frequencies. The tweeters are adjustable and will pivot approximately 15° to optimize imaging.
Mounting Rings: Without any adapter, the speakers fit a standard 6-3/4" opening. The supplied adapter rings allow the speakers to be installed in a standard 6-1/2" opening, a 4-hole Ford 6-1/2" opening, or an oversized GM/Chrysler 6-3/4" opening. The adapter rings have tabs that must be broken off based on the application.
