The Type X's...

I don't like the R's tweets...too harsh for me. The X's are a lot better.

Trying to up the post count.

Anyways, I'm also wondering about the Type R components. You hear their subs raved about all the time, but I don't see a whole lot about the speakers.

Would u consider the Xs on the "warmer" side? I was thinking about trying the Xs out but i dont really like the Rs

I'll let you know tomorrow night after the install!!! The 5x7 weighs 13 lbs. gross! Hopefully the tweeter won't be too much. My daily driver has two sets of tweeters up front...so I should be prepared for these in the Mustang. I hope they will sound good for the time being at 18 W RMS from the stereo. Well shy of their 60 W RMS rating! I'm pretty excited. Based on the magnet on the 5x7 and the how hefty the tweeter feels...I should be in for a real treat! The Type S in back should compliment them pretty well. Ofcourse my current speakers are factory...so anything else will be better :)

Is they Type X a component also?

Kenwood Amp in my other car will someday be used to power all the 5x7's in the Mustang.

Got em! ...And they're awesome! The clarity is beautiful. Had the tweeters mounted at side mirror level in the Mustang. Sounds great. Powered by the reciever the tweeters are not obnoxiously high. Just right. Installer liked it and agreed with me that an amp would make the components scream. He recommended powering just the front speakers with an amp and letting the back speakers run off the Head Unit. Now I'm contemplating returning the Type S 5x7's and simply using factory rear deck speakers. Then getting an amp for the Type R's. Ahhhhh...decisions...

are you running the mach 460?

Eugenics, you like to have a lower or higher power amp. Alpine has a 2 channel at 50 W RMS and 4 channel with 40 W RMSx4 bridged it's 100 W RMSx2 I think with a max of 360 W overall. The type R's might be capable of handling a little more though. It would be very comforting to know they were performing their best in my setup!

No, didn't get the Mach 460. Probably good, less wires and speakers to deal with. Although I haven't properly figured out the ones I have. I've tried to make putting in my recently purchased receiver a clean install using wiring harness for the car, but I must have the wrong harness. There is a big time short somewhere! Blew the instrument panel light fuse last night. Once I eliminate the short I'll be ready to decide if I can live with their current output or not.
