Summary: I bought these speakers because of the ALPINE name and reputation I have had many ALPINE products through the years and tryed most of the other big name brands out there. I replaced a great set of Phoenix Gold 6" componets with these I couldnt be happier and I LOVE my Phoenix Golds. To compair this set of speakers would really not be fair considering the digital quility amp vs a non digital amp but what I will say in all fairness is this has to be the most close to being...
Summary: These speakers sound amazing! I am currently just running them off an alpine head unit and there is surprisingly no distortion at loud volumes! Clean highs from the silk domed tweeters, surprisingly deep mid bass from the poly fiber woofers. The small crossover size is very convenient. I attenuated the tweeters minus 1db with them and the highs are crisp and bright without any harshness. Can't wait to amp em up!
Pros: Great sound, tiny crossover, stylish looks, affordable.
Summary: Speakers are subjective but to me the Alpine type R have a smooth sound, good clarity, and a good amount of detail. Bass isn't deep but I like the mids. Vocals are brought out more with these than a lot of others I tried. The bass that the type Rs do play has that clean "pop" and isn't distorted. I listened to these amplified. An aftermarket head unit may be enough power but I'm not sure.
Pros: Vocals easy to hear and "rich" Good Mids Smooth sound but clear and detailed
Cons: For the price, I would try others before buying these. Many options in that price range. Bass- benefit from a sub even if you aren't wanting a lot of bass. This alone wouldn't deter me. Efficiency- may not be a good choice if playing w/o amp or w/ stock head unit.
Summary: I had never installed component speakers before but wanted to since my car had 4 speakers in the front and didn't want the lousy "tweeters" to cloud up an otherwise nice sound system. These speakers were real easy to install as long as you have a bit of an understanding with how your car's wired. The high frequency sounds sound really good with these speakers and since I'll be adding a sub, that was what was more iportant to me.
Pros: The sound's very crisp and clear and the crossover's very easy to conceal in the installation.
Cons: Instructions could be more clear. Also some guidelines for how to adjust the crossover would be nice.
