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!
Scion Xb install...disappointed.
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.
Alpine excellence for years... I have been pushing hard and loud sound since '83 always with Alpine.

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.
