Top-form Alpine sound
Top-form Alpine sound
If you've been an Alpine devotee from car to car, their X-Series speakers are your opportunity to take the leap to premium sound. Designed with a laser-focus on superior imaging, these 6-1/2" 2-way car speakers will bring out the very best in your audio system. And an all-new magnet design in a cast aluminum frame allows these speakers to have a low profile, so they fit in a wide array of vehicles.
All about the build
Alpine uses a powerful magnet and a super-efficient motor structure to make this 6-1/2" speaker really strong in the lower frequencies. The woofer cone itself uses a specialized fiber for extreme rigidity while Alpine's proprietary High Amplitude Multi-Roll surround ensures durability in the face of extreme temperatures.
Handles up to 110 watts
A 1" carbon graphite dome tweeter handles the high frequencies with satisfying accuracy, and its extended frequency response lends a sense of realism and atmosphere unmatched by lesser tweeters. Driven by an aftermarket amplifier, you'll really have a soaring system, thanks to power handling up to 110 watts RMS.

Alpine X-S65 reviews
Great, solid sounding speakers. truly should be driven by an external amp to get the full sound from these. Even those it was stated they wouldn't fit my Chevrolet Express cargo van, I was able to install them with only a slight alteration.
Pros: Super high end tweeter.Frequency Response up to 50K. Solid, rigid bass cone. Takes the extra watts with no problem.
Cons: Frequency response only down to 55, really needs a sub-woofer.

Installed these speakers in the front doors of a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado. Nice sounding speakers. Only complaint is the electrical connectors supplied didn't fit these speakers. The speaker terminals are wider than the electrical connector so you can't slide together. Connector to door wiring harness worked without any problem.
Pros: Includes mounting hardware
Cons: Electrical connectors supplied didn't fit speaker terminals.

Cast Aluminum Frame: The speakers feature a cast aluminum frame. The frame is lightweight, yet rigid, to resist flexing during long cone excursions to deliver powerful bass.
Size Classification Note: Some manufacturers, including Alpine, call this size speaker a 6-1/2". Because it requires a larger cutout than a standard 6-1/2" speaker, Crutchfield has traditionally referred to this size woofer as a 6-3/4". Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.
Neodymium Magnets: Because neodymium produces a much stronger magnetic field than ferrite (of the same size), the magnet size and mounting depth are reduced.
