these don't seem much different, the SPR-57LP (http://iweb.alpine-usa.com/pls/admn/item_info?p_item_name=SPR-57LP&p_category=80&p_subcategory=90&p_main=10&p_more=y) and the SPS-570A (http://iweb.alpine-usa.com/pls/admn/item_info?p_item_name=SPS-570A&p_category=80&p_subcategory=104&p_main=10&p_more=y) . And the SPR-134A (http://www.ikesound.com/product-product_id/58) and the SPS-130A (http://www.ikesound.com/product-product_id/1291) look the same. whats different between the type s and the r?

The only difference is that the Type S are a higher line then the Type R's or it could be the other way around, that's the only difference.

I know the type r's are the higher line but they seem to be the same as the type s just. I'm just wondering do the type r's have any features that make them better?

And I thought about getting the SPR-57LS 5x7 for the rear and SPR-134A 5-1/4" for the front to run off a head unit @ 22wrms. what do yall think?

type r> type s. my type-r's sounded ok off head unit power, noticeable better with an external amp.

I might buy an amp later, I don't have the money right now.

Yeah they are both different. The Type-R series is the step up fromt he Type-S series, and yeah they do have a different baskets.

The Type R is higher quality, however the Type S uses less power to produce louder sound, the type s will work off a head unit better.

However the Type R w/ the proper power will not only sound better, but will be more powerful.

If you dont get an amp, maybe type s...type r if you plan to and don't mind the extra money for a better speaker.

on that amp can I lower the front speakers to 40 wrms and run the back at 60 wrms. I have never used an amp before.
