Upgrading your factory speakers could be a daunting task
So we thought about starting a series of single speakers reviews to make it easier for you.
We picked the Alpine spr-60c to be our first speaker to review in the series and it turned out to be an awesome speaker to have and to review. So, hop on.
The SPR-60C is a 6.5” inch component speaker that has a lot of features.
It’s sound clarity, deep bass, and the compact design make it an amazing component speaker that you should consider while buying a new pair of speakers to your fancy car.
So, let’s first speak about the features of Alpine spr-60c:
the 60C designed for loudness, clarity, and compaction. With the multi-layer hybrid fiber woofers with ridged surround and extended cone movement that deliver strong bass response and push a lot of air so, you get the bass and the sound that bless you and your company.
The neodymium magnets:
is an amazing compact magnet that is a lot smaller than the normal magnets which give you easier installation and better performance in small spaces.
The crossovers are 60% smaller than the default crossover in TypeR speakers so wrapping up the speaker, you will love who compact the SPR-60C is.
a lot of people loved the tweeters and the mounting options they got with it. You are going to get the tweeters installed in a swiveling flush-mount housing.
You can install the tweeters behind factory grilles using the included stealth mount brackets. For more information check it on Amazon.
there are two scenarios going with the Alpine SPR-60C, the first is to go without an Amp and this is something nobody will recommend. The second is to amp the speaker and here where all the magic begins.
You see, go anywhere, Amazon, Crutchfield, and any forum, you will find that people who amped the speaker found it completely magnificent. With 330W peak power and 110W RMS and 87dB of sensitivity this baby is going to rock but just give it enough power and We guarantee that it is going to impress you.
Technologies like HAMR surround, Neodymium Magnet, and HD Polymer Frame made the SPR-60C a very good option for anybody who is looking for having a new pair of component speakers.
Now enough with the technicality and let’s go to the fun part, you know we love reading the customer reviews on any place to see who the people bought any speaker think about it.
what did the people say about the 60-c?!
The first thing we noticed while reading is the variety of cars the 60-C got installed in. Toyota Tacoma, Jeep Wrangler, Dodge, Honda, Audi, and more. The good thing is that most of the customers mentioned who it fits perfectly. Remember when we spoke about the compact design?
The second thing is amping the speaker. People kept saying that when you amp this speaker you are going to make it a wild machine in your car and that there is an obvious difference amping it and not amping it. So amp it to get the most out of the SPR-60C.
3 major things people always mentioned reviewing the Spr alpine 60c

The last thing for you to know about the SPR-60C is the answer on the popular questions on the internet about it:
1- is the Alpine SPR-60C any good?
Yup, it rocks, we believe it is one of the best component speakers in its price tag and you PROBABLY will never regret buying them.
2- what Amp should I buy to power the 60c Alpine?
It depends on how pairs you have in your car. But for simplicity sake, for every speaker, it is going to need a +50W channel to power it and (100-110)W is ideal. If you are going to have 2 pairs you will need a 4-channel amp with at least a +50W per channel.
