Great product. I am a huge Alpine fan and I was debating on getting these or the type r for a little more money. Decided to go with these since I was adding other type s speakers in my FJ Cruiser. Love the fact that Crutchfield sells the adapters so I could fit these in my 6x9 openings. These speakers really don't provide a lot of bass but that was what I wanted since I added 2 12" Type R Alpine's with a 1200wt amp. The set up right now is perfect with the bass from the subs and the highs and mids from these. Think I made the best decision with I purchased Alpine from my CD player all the way back to my subs.
Great sound quality
I installed these in the rear doors of my 2007 Silverado. The sound is great. It would have been good to have installation instructions, especially with the spacer plates. Once I figured it out the install was smooth. The sound quality is great.
Very easy to install, much easier than Crutchfield led me to believe, however I am very displeased with the performance. I bought these and the component version for my truck. The component version sounds amazing, very clear with alot of bass drive and clear treble. However these were crackling right out of the box at mid-loud volume, possible i could have gotten a bad set. May be returning them very soon and bite the bullet and drill tweeter holes so i can install the component speakers in the rear of my truck.
I replace my factory speakers on my 07 silverado with these alpine speakers. Big sound difference. Can't wait to add an amp to it. I recommend it.
Best bump for your hard earned lump !
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!
