Hi im about to upgrade the front speakers and since they're only 5.25 I want to get something really good and powerful for the size and I always hear you guys talking about the Alpine R type but I see on ebay that the S type is significantly cheaper, why is that? I see it's less watts, is the sound quality any worse? I know you guys are gonna say go for the R type but I have very limited money and need to save what I can so unless the R is a lot better I don't feel comfortable getting it. Also is there any way I can fit a 6.5 inch in place of the factory 5.25? They seem to be the same price as the 5.25, and my car speaker sizes are disappointing, the back 2 speakers are four inch, so it's hard to have a good system. I have a '99 Isuzu Rodeo. Thanks a lot for the help.
