Upgrade with Alpine excellence

Choosing Alpine for your upgrade is like choosing chocolate at the ice cream counter — it's a classic for a reason. You can't go wrong with Alpine's undying commitment to quality sound and attention to detail, and their thunderous R-Series delivers the goods when your urge to crank the volume is unstoppable.

Elemental sound

These R-S68 6"x8" speakers feature a multi-layer hybrid fiber woofer cone that satisfies your need for strong bass response. A deluxe surround allows consistent, extended cone movement that pushes a lot of air for high-impact sound and guarantees a long life in your car doors. And when it comes to the highs, a 1" silk tweeter brings on a level of smoothness that enhances your music with detail, depth, and no shrillness.

Handles up to 100 watts

Alpine has designed these speakers to work perfectly with your car stereo, but they'll really come into their own when you power them with an outboard amp. Power handling up to 100 watts RMS ensures you can get big, dynamic sound and plenty of volume out of these sturdy speakers. So, prepare yourself for a no-regrets sound upgrade.

Grilles are not included; the factory grilles should be suitable for most applications.

Q
Why does Best Buy say these are not compatible with a 2013 Ford Mustang?
[ John  Jun 22, 2019 ]

A
John, I am unsure why BestBuy has their products listed the way that they do. One of our advisors would love to help you dive deeper into what speakers will/will not fit in your vehicle! https://www.crutchfield.com/support/ContactUs.aspx

Q
What is the best amp to use to power these speakers?
[ 2002Stang  Jun 15, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system.

Q
What are the best crossover settings on your head unit for these speakers?
[ Drh510  Apr 11, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
There's no specific setting you have to use. If your system will include a subwoofer, you can high-pass your full-range speakers around the same frequency you set the low-pass filter for your sub(s). For additional assistance and personalized recommendations, feel free to contact us directly by phone or through our online chat service: https://www.crutchfield.com/support/ContactUs.aspx
