R Series 6.5″ Component Speakers
The new R-Series speakers take a great platform to the next level.
Alpine’s all-new R-S65C R-Series speakers have gained significant engineering refinements that substantially improve sonic performance of their predecessors. The result is incredible clarity across the bandwidth, providing clearer and more defined vocals, as well as precisely detailed highs and improved bass response. Beyond their modest aesthetic upgrades, Alpine’s efforts were concentrated on re-engineering the motor and circuit design, crafting a performance speaker system that offers exceptional sound and resolution, well-exceeding their peers.
Although the Alpine R-S65C R-Series component speakers are new for 2017, they actually come from an impressive Alpine lineage – the Type-R speakers.
The R-Series speakers and subwoofers have taken a huge leap forward delivering superb sound quality from deep bass to high trebles, while the High Amplitude Multi-Roll HAMR surround allows a maximum, linear cone excursion for high SPL, while maintaining full control over the diaphragm at any excursion stage for high sound clarity.
Painstaking engineering, coupled with decades of expertise in high-end speaker design, Alpine’s all-new R-Series continues its unrivalled reputation in benchmark performance and sound quality in the affordable price category.
Alpine uses high-power neodymium magnets for the new R-Series speakers. This means the magnet can be much smaller compared to traditional speaker designs, allowing for a much lower mounting depth and overall space requirement inside the car door.
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 Alpine R-S65C R-Series component 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.

|The High Amplitude Multi-Roll (HAMR) surround allows a maxi- mum, linear cone excursion for high SPL, while maintaining full control over the diaphragm at any excursion stage for high sound clarity.||Alpine uses high-power neodymium magnets for the new R-Series speakers.
This means the magnet can be much smaller compared to traditional speaker designs, allowing for a much lower mounting depth and overall space requirement inside the car door.
|The all-new voice coil is made of Aluminium, compared to the regular copper wire coils. The benefit is higher clarity especially in the mid-high frequency area.||Alpine has developed a Wave Guide for the cone to further improve sound quality.
Mounted over the centre cap, it prevents phase distortion of the sound waves from the diaphragm, and focuses the sound for optimum clarity.
|Included Mesh Grill||Included Trim-Rings||Easy To Install Network||Swivel Tweeter|
|Alpine have included a metal mesh grill to protect the woofer in open installations.||To allow easy installation in a wide range of vehicles, Alpine have included several trim rings and a 6 x 8” adapter.||The external network is very compact and easy to install. Simply slide open the cover to gain access to the tweeter level adjsutment (0dB / -2dB / -4dB / – 6dB).
This ensures a perfect balance between woofer and tweeter level in your car.
|Both component and coaxial models feature a ring tweeter that swivels to improve off-axis response in less-than-ideal locations. You can aim it by hand for best imaging and staging at your listening position.
The component type tweeter (R-S65C only) can be installed in flush-mount or on-dash configuration – all installation adapters are included.
