The Alpine S-S65 6-1/2″ 2-way car speakers have been known for their dependability and sound performance at a mid-line price. Chances are, you’ve heard these car speakers and appreciated the loud & fun listening experience. Using the highly successful Type-S speakers as a foundation, we applied various performance and hardware improvements to the design, essentially transforming them into the new R-Series speakers – The Next Evolution of Proven Performance.

Building on an Iconic Speaker

The The Alpine S-S65 6-1/2″ 2-way car speakers has been an iconic part of the car audio industry for many years but it was time for a modernization of the brand. These car speakers performance was certainly top notch but there is always room for improvement. Rather than redesigning the speakers from scratch, we kept the fundamental sound & style characteristics and updated them.

More Realistic Highs

The The Alpine S-S65 6-1/2″ 2-way car speakers use a new ring-type tweeter voice coil for increased efficiency and better tonal balance across the entire sound band, for improved overall sound quality.

A More Balanced Transition

As with many high-end speakers, the Alpine S-S65 6-1/2″ 2-way car speakers components incorporate Wave Guide technology in the form of a phase plug in the center of the woofer cone. The Wave Guide enhances in-car sound dispersion and helps eliminate phase distortion. Alpine’s unique Dynamic eXpander ring stiffens the cone around the Wave Guide, eliminating a big source of distortion in typical designs caused by cone flexing.

New Streamlined Grill

The Alpine S-S65 6-1/2″ 2-way car speakers have a new metal mesh grille with the R-Series logo badge provides a classic, attractive look. The mesh design also provides added sturdiness to the grille’s edge, for better protection against intrusions on the side of the speaker.

  • MUCH better than OE speaker
    Verified BuyerReviewed by aowam - March 26, 2022

    Bought this to replace the terrible OE front door speakers for my 2022 Ford Maverick. Replacing the tweeters in the front and the tiny speakers in the back would be too much hassle, so went with these that are much easier to DIY install as it has a tweeter inside of it. Needed a wiring harness (Metra 72-5602) and mounting bracket from Crutchfield to keep it easy (Metra 82-5605). Fits great. Blows the cheap OE speakers out of the water, though I bet any aftermarket speaker would do that.

  • Great Speakers.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by bsadulski - June 16, 2018

    I purchased these speakers over some Rockford Fosgates due to the well-rounded nature of these speakers. While Rockford is definitely a better brand, they produce primarily mid-bass and treble. These speakers produce a decent amount of solid bass, in addition to excellent clarity and mid bass. Overall well-build and a great speaker for a well-rounded sound system. Consider pairing it with a Kicker sub for the ultimate listening experience.

  • Ok set
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Chris - June 10, 2021

    Good set of speakers but kept having issues with loss of power in one of my sets of speakers though they where blown at one point but no damage was ever present they where installed professionally and was told the issue wasn’t the wiring it was the speakers after replacing these it I fixed the problem. So keep in mind they work great when they work but it’s better to replace if you start having issues with them

  • Not bad, but not great...
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Adam - August 12, 2021

    A nice upgrade from stock blown Nissan speakers but not mind blowing good. They struggle on music that is very "crowded" or when there is a lot going on. Also not very good on EDM with a lot of bass. Listening to rock music the bass guitar does get reproduced pretty well. Other than that they are doing a good job and provided a nice improvement. Perhaps I was expecting to much from $260 worth of speakers
