Exceptional performance, even at high volume
Like it loud? Alpine designed their Type-R speakers for people who like to turn it up. They’ll deliver big, dynamic sound with plenty of bass, and they’ll handle lots of volume. They’ll work great with your car stereo, but they really come into their own when you power them with an outboard amp.
THE NEXT EVOLUTION OF PROVEN PERFORMANCE
The new R-Series speakers take a great platform to the next level. Although the R-Series speakers are new for 2017, they actually come from an impressive Alpine lineage – the Type-R speakers.
- 100 Watts RMS
- 300 Watts Peak
- Ultra Smooth 1″ Silk Dome Tweeter
- Swivel Tweeter Mounting
- H.A.M.R. Surround (Patent Pending)
- Multi-Layer Hybrid Fiber Cone
- Large Square Wire Dual-Layer Voice Coil

Type-R speakers have been known for their dependability and sound performance at a mid-line price. Chances are, you’ve heard the Type-R speakers and appreciated the loud & fun listening experience.
Using the highly successful Type-R 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 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.
MORE REALISTIC HIGHS
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.
A MORE BALANCED TRANSITION
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.
NEW STREAMLINED GRILL
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.
