You’ll agree with us when we say that Alpine is a household name when it comes to high-quality car audio speakers.
Today, we’ll be looking at speakers from Alpine’s Type R series to see what they’re all about.
We’ll also be comparing them to two other similar speakers to see whether it surpasses them or falls behind.
You can never really go wrong with JBL and this product is no different. Just like the Alpine speakers, these have a shallow mounting depth which makes them easy to install. They’re perfect if you’re looking to replace your factory speakers.
These component speakers are slightly more expensive than their competitors but their sound performance makes it all worth it. The bass is incredibly loud but never to the point where it becomes distorted and/or unclear.
We don’t recall a single time we’ve been disappointed by Alpine car speakers and this product is no different.
Alpine speakers are almost always made of Silk Dome tweeters which give their sound a very distinct edge. The highs are bright and poppy, and you can even adjust the sound according to your personal preferences.
Just like all the best Alpine speakers, these speakers fit onto a wide variety of car models, even older ones.
Unlike its competitors, these speakers feature a particularly high RMS rating of 200 watts for a pair of speakers.
This rating not only makes this set the best Alpine speaker set to replace factory speakers but it can also work with amplifiers and stereo setups.
The maximum output power of these R series speakers is 600 watts. This means there’s a very low chance these speakers will ever blow out or break down on you.
You’d expect such heavy-duty and high-quality speakers to weigh a lot but they actually weigh only 2 pounds each. Compare to that to its competitors that weigh 3 and 4 pounds respectively.
This, along with the Rubber surround, makes these speakers very easy to handle and install.
Most customer reviews on Amazon confirmed our testing by reiterating how the performance of these speakers sounds great.
These speakers are popular amongst beginners replacing factory speakers as well as veterans that have added this product to their amplifier or stereo setup.
Car speakers can be quite difficult to mount, especially if you’re doing it for the first time.
That’s why opting for a component set such as this can be the correct way to go. It may take some more reading to get the hang of but component sets such as these offer a lot more options in terms of positioning individual components.
The best easy-to-mount alternative car speaker is the JBL CLUB6520 6.5″ 300W Club Series 2-Way Coaxial Car Speaker due to its convenient set of component speakers. Individual components make it very easy to customize your car audio system.
Every car owner wants the best sound system that can transmit sound that is not only loud and heavy but also detailed and complex.
These full-range speakers allow a bass response that is extremely impressive and leagues ahead of its competitors.
The best bass-heavy alternative car speakers are the Infinity REF6532EX 165W 6.5″ Reference Series 2-Way Coaxial Speakers thanks to their woofer and edge-driven tweeters. The tweeters have an adjustable output level, so you can control the sound however you want.
2-way speakers are less detailed than 3-way speakers because they don’t have a dedicated component that’s handling the mid-range frequencies.
While 3-way speakers will provide you with clearer sound in most cases, 2-way speakers are cheaper and still sound great in their own regard.
Judging the sound quality of speakers, especially car speakers, can be quite difficult.
In order to tell whether a speaker (or set of speakers) sounds good is to notice whether or not you can hear every aspect of the music or not.
If the vocals sound muddy or unclear, that’s the sound of a low-quality speaker.
The RMS power handling is what’s used to measure how much power a speaker can handle. Don’t get it confused with peak power handling as that only tells you how much the speakers can handle at a given instance.
RMS tells you how much the speakers can handle over a certain amount of time
This brings us to the end of our review for the Alpine SPR-60C car speakers. They’re definitely one of the most high-quality speakers we’ve had the pleasure of testing and we can’t recommend them enough.
Whether it’s the sound quality, the mounting ease, or the build quality, these Alpine car speakers excel on all fronts.
