Summary: product holds up well to modern amps, plays loud enough without distortion. solid mounting base, shallow depth to clear window crank, adjustable tweeter makes easier to hear highs when on vertical mounting,
Summary: I have not been in the market for car audio in over 8 years. The last time I bought car stereo speakers I was very unimpressed with Alpine's line of speakers. Instead I went with Boston Acoustics 767 speakers which sounded substantially better. I've always liked Alpine decks and amplifiers, so when I blew out my front Infinity Gold speakers, I thought I would give Alpine another listen to. In the store they sounded okay (at least better than the competing brands).
Summary: These alpine's are very affordable, excellent speakers that anyone can enjoy. The highs are where these speakers shine, when they're given their RMS. I run two of them with 40 watts to each speaker and I think for the money these sound excellent.
Hard to find better all-around speakers for the price

Summary: I recently replaced the four factory speakers in the Durango with four Alpine SPS-170A 6.75 inch speakers. I selected the Alpines for several reasons: I wanted very good sound but am on a budget; I wanted speakers that would be easy to install; and I wanted durable equipment. My first inkling that this might be a very good move was when I held one of these rock solid speakers in one hand the a freshly removed factory speaker in the other.
Excerpt: These speakers a great for any car and significantly better than stock speakers you may find in your doors. They have quite a tight punch bass but i have found that its best to let 6x9`s/subwoofer take the bass and use these beasty speakers for the medium to high range frequinces. Top buy, dont go to halfords though. R > I > P off!
