Premium Alpine components
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, this X-S65C 6-1/2" component speaker system 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 can fit in a wide array of vehicles.
All about the build
Alpine uses a powerful magnet and a super-efficient motor structure to make the 6-1/2" woofer 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.
Serious power handling
The separate 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 a whopping 120 watts RMS.

Cast Aluminum Frame: The woofers feature a cast aluminum frame. The frame is lightweight, yet rigid, to resist flexing during long cone excursions to deliver powerful bass.
Woofer Size: Some manufacturers, including Alpine, call this size woofer 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 Woofer Magnets: Because neodymium produces a much stronger magnetic field than ferrite (of the same size), the magnet size and mounting depth are reduced.
Tweeter Mounting Options: The tweeters come installed in a surface-mount housing. No flush mount option is included. The installed tweeter dimensions are:
|Mounting Depth||N/A (screw depth)|
Crossovers: The tweeters' high-pass crossovers are in-line between the woofers and tweeters. Two-sided tape is included to mount the high pass crossovers and their dimensions are:
- Width: 1.81"
- Height: 1.21"
- Depth: 2.76" (3.25" including wire)
Tweeter Attenuation: Each crossover has three tweeter level options, allowing you to precisely tune the high frequencies to the car interior and tweeter placement. Using the supplied jumpers select -3 dB, 0dB (flat), or +6dB. Other jumpers allow reversing the tweeter phase.
