I received my Alpine type r 6 3/4 components today and alpine type r 6x9's. I got both shipped to me for 210 from ikesound.com... Before i had cadence cm6 kit 6.5 in the front and pioneer rev 6x9 in the rear. after my installation that i just finished. I am actually blown away on how well the components are, i read lots of threads saying that they **** and the tweets are to high... All i did was open up the crossover and lower the tweeter freq level. and i have my alpine 9853 set at 80 hz. and my car bumps like a mofo with good crisp clean sound. I have a monte carlo 2000 ss. each door is getting 100 rms. and it bangs like a *****. The rear speakers the 6x9's are unbeleivably better then the rev's by far and i only paid 80 bux for them. I made some 6 3/4 baffel rings and made sure the 6x9's were sealed off in there chamber in the rear seat head room. So those searching for some decent comps. that dont cost a left testicle. get these for 125 and slam away.

I agree, in a properly sealed area, the Type R's are nice for the price, no doubt.

Hey Exploder-
Iam contemplating the same install with the type R's today, and I have a 2005 Monte.
Did you do anything special to the doors when installing the 6.5's? and how did you seal off the 6x9's?
I am hoping for a miracle with a set of components in front and a little 6x9 rear fill. The factory setup with an aftermarket HU sounds so muted, muddy and distorted. I'll have a sub x 400 watts and 65x4 to the front and back.
I am going to best buy to take 2 sets of 6.5 RF components back because I'm affraid they'll sound like ####. I think I'll go with the R's if they sound good when I go. :)

yea i had to do a **** load of fabrication to make them fit
but its worth it...

Did u deaden ur doors?

11-13-2006, 09:20 AM
Could You elaborate on what you did to seal and deaden for these speakers?

I also have a monte and the same alpine speakers, and was toying with the idea of constructing enclosures under the rear deck, and somehow creating enclosures in the door.

I want tight, loud responsive sound out of these for a good addition to my sub.

First off, i made a 6x9 1/2 spacer. so it sits up a little higher. Then, i got some 1/8 of an inch foam, cut out a 6x9 oval shape. mathched it up. and then screwed down the 6x9's. Under the rear hatch, where the 6x9 magnets where, I covered the 15-20 gaping holes with fatmat. the door panels. I made my own fiberglass speaker pod to fit in the doors with a sealed enclosure. the 6x9's are ran off the head unit, alpine 9853. and its surely loud enough, if you have subs, basically 6x9;s get drounded out anyways.

I would be interested in the details of the fiberglass pods you made in your doors.
Pics are always nice too.

I have been trying to tune my system the last couple of days. I am definitely impressed with the Alpine-R's. I didn't think I could fill all the space in this Monte Carlo, but it seems to be shaping up nicely now.

I blew up my RF-P3 12" yesterday though:(.

the factory speaker holder for the door, i just made a sealed circular pod around the back, sealed it off. its actually very proffesional looking, and only took about 2 days to accomplish. pm me if you want pics or something

I have a 2004 monte ss is the stock size in front 6.5 or 6.75? And do you know what the max mounting depth is?

11-16-2006, 08:40 PM
It has a plastic speaker holder in the door, and I'm not sure of it's diameter.
Mounting depth is supposed to be
2-3/4" but I got my alpine type-R 6.5" to fit by using the included 1/4" adapter ring under the speakers. They were a 3" mounting depth.

11-16-2006, 08:52 PM
I'm sorry, to be more precise;
They say the max mounting depth is 2-13/16", and my speakers were supposed to be 2-3/4". And the Alpine speakers I installed are listed as a 6-3/4" speaker. At least on Crutchfield.com they are.
