03/23/2014I purchased 3 pairs of these for my Acura TSX, and a MB Quart 6-Channel Amp,
And Oh Boy! do they sound good, I had them installed by the Geek Squad and they customer cut holes for my extra tweets.
The sound is very amazing.

03/14/2014Great quality and sound. Can take some power. Great recommendation from the geek squad, instead of comparable replacement speakers. This was definitely and upgrade.

Pair them with a Sub
Posted by: TRiAC
from Minneapolis, MN on
I installed a set of these in the factory locations of a 1999 Honda Accord sedan. The mids are in the doors near knee level and the tweeters are on the dash close to the windshield (swiveled to follow the slope of the windshield). Installation was quite simple; however, I have been installing for several years so I still recommend Geek Squad Autotechs.
UPGRADE – After winter, when it is warm enough, I plan to flush-mount the mids (modify the door panel and move the speakers forward so they are no longer behind the door panel). This should increase the mid-bass response and overall impact.
I am powering this component set straight off of the head-unit, a Pioneer AVH-P2300DVD (50Wx4@4ohm). Instead of just using 2 channels from the head-unit to power this component set (which Alpine boasts is possible with the low RMS handling), I am powering the tweeters with the front channels while the mids are powered by the rear channels. This is possible without a built-in high/mid/low crossover as the mids have a passive low-pass crossover built on the speaker itself (little coil wrapped in black plastic on the speaker by the +/- terminals – ensures you do not send frequencies too high to the mid) and the component set comes with passive high-pass crossovers for the tweeters (the crossovers you see in the product image – ensure you do not send frequencies too low to the tweeters). Separating the components in this fashion allows a slight power increase and better tweeter adjustment (use the fader to increase/decrease the tweeter level). I have not checked with an ohmmeter, but according to Alpine's technical support, the ohm load should still stay at 4ohms for the tweeter and the mid.
UPGRADE – I am satisfied with my current power level, but adding an amplifier would definitely be an improvement.
My immediate reaction was that the mid-bass was lacking. There seems to be a drop in impact around 100hz, but then they played 40-50hz quite well (only for testing – on the head-unit, I set the HPF at 80hz). The tweeters are very crisp and reproduce sound very well. After proper tuning and adjustments, I am very happy with the overall sound from this component set. I listen to a wide range of music – rock, dubstep, country, rap, and even a little classical every now and then. The only music that seemed to stress this set up so far was rock. Crashing cymbals seem to distort the vocals; however, I have not tested many rock songs. Dubstep / Techno sounds amazing.
Pair this component set with a subwoofer. I have an Alpine Type-R 12 (SWR-1243D) powered by an Alpine MRP-M500 amplifier combined with my Alpine SPR-60C components and the result is amazing. This subwoofer blends amazingly with these components – I have it set to cover 80hz and lower. This setup is affordable and light on the vehicle's electrical system (cheap amp, but it is 80% efficient – can't go wrong for the money)
Also – check these out on Alpine's website for more info and a demo video: http://www.alpine-usa.com/product/view/spr-60c
