The new R-Series speakers take a great platform to the next level. Although the R-Series speakers are new for 2017, they actually come from an impressive Alpine lineage – the Type-R speakers.
Type-R speakers have been known for their dependability and sound performance at a mid-line price. Chances are, you’ve heard the Type-R speakers and appreciated the loud & fun listening experience.
Using the highly successful Type-R speakers as a foundation, we applied various performance and hardware improvements to the design, essentially transforming them into the new R-Series speakers – The Next Evolution of Proven Performance.
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.
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.
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.
