I find the bass response from Alpine's Type S speakers to be excellent! Always impressed, even when running off a headunit's internal amp power (20x4). Off of the power pack, or even better a full 4ch amp these really come alive. They're very smooth, BUT a little brighter than their coax-counterparts. Mounting the tweeters are ear level on-axis can be a little harsh as some reviews mentioned, best to mount a little lower, like midway in the door panel of following the windshield's curve. This becomes less apparent when amped properly anyway, though. The crossover aren't anything to write home about either, but are easy to fit, of course since they're in-line. the tweeters also offer lots of mounting options. I like Alpine flush mount hardware more than almost any other brand.

Awesome sounding speakers in my crew cab gmc sierra. Best speakers as far as sound and quality for the price.
Fabulous! These speakers, coupled with the 61/2" Alpine coaxials replaced the stock speakers in my wife's 2013 Mini Cooper S convertible and made a remarkable improvement in the overall sound of the system. The difference is night and day. The install was made by a local retailer.
Sound quality is amazing at great price
excellent for the money

I bought these for a 2012 outback. The stock front speakers already had tweeters in the dash and mid/woofer in the door. The factory speakers have a single pair of wires leaving the head unit and somewhere in the dash they separate and the tweeter and woofer are wired in parallel. I bought these because I wanted to use the factory wiring as-is without having to mount a separate crossover. Overall I am happy with the ease of install and sound, I would have given a 4.5 if possible.
