The Type-R speaker has been an iconic part of the car audio industry for many years but it was time for a modernization of the brand. Type-R speaker performance was certainly top notch but there is always room for improvement. Rather than redesigning the speakers from scratch, we kept the fundamental Type-R sound & style characteristics and updated them.
The R-Series 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.
As with many high-end speakers, the Type-R 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.
The 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.
I asked if this is an upgrade from the factory speakers ? Do they replace the sound bar speakers? I have a 21 Gladiator Willys it has the 7 in screen factory radio. I posted earlier it said it was answered but I can’t find it so I’m posting again
Answer this question
You would have to find out what size speakers you have. These are 6"x8". You would have to tell us what you have.
