Best Car Audio Component Speaker Systems – QP Rating

Last updated: 12.12.2018 0

Component speaker is a speaker system consisting of multiple separated speaker components, matched for optimal sound quality. Typically a component speaker set consists of a pair of tweeters, mid-bass drivers and crossover. When a sound travels outside the range capabilities, crossover will ensure that it will be automatically played by another speaker. This will ensure that each speaker reproduce sound accurately and will not be distorted. Best car audio component speaker systems are generally of better quality, although coaxial speakers can be quite good. They are typically less expensive and easier to install.

Alpine R-S65C 6.5 Inch Component 2-Way Speakers System

Key Specifications

  • CTA-2031 Specifications: 100W RMS, 300W Peak, 4 Ohm
  • 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.
  • Ultra Smooth 1" Silk Dome Tweeter - Swivel Tweeter Mounting
  • Multi-Layer Hybrid Fiber Cone - Large Square Wire Dual-Layer Voice Coil

This bundle contains a pair of Alpine R-S65C R-Series 6.5" Component 2-Way Speakers & a pair of Alpine R-S69 6x9" 2-Way Coaxial Speakers Alpine R-S65C 6.5 Inch Component 2-Way Speakers CTA-2031 Specifications: 100W RMS, 300W Peak, 4 Ohm Frequency Response: 65Hz-29kHz 100 Watts RMS 300 Watts Peak Ultra Smooth 1" Silk Dome Tweeter Swivel Tweeter Mounting H.A.M.R.

Surround (Patent Pending) Multi-Layer Hybrid Fiber Cone Large Square Wire Dual-Layer Voice Coil High-performance Linear Drive Motor 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. 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 R-Series 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 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.

Component speakers will invade your vehicle’s space with clear and crisp sound that will elevate your music experience. You’ll definitely enjoy the new life brought by these high-end speakers to your system at a budget-friendly price. Upgrade your car audio system’s stock speakers with a set of top-notch component speakers reviewed at IMCarExperts.com for increased clarity, bass and output. If you want to make an informed decision and get speakers that will perfectly suit your vehicle and lifestyle, and deliver excellent sound quality, keep on reading.

A properly installed component system will provide a richer listening experience for you and your passengers. Component systems design separates audio frequencies to different speaker types. A system consists of a separate woofer, tweeter, and crossover, where each of the drivers is meant to cover one specific range of frequencies. Being a separate component, the woofer can move freely to deliver more powerful sound performance. You can also custom-mount the tweeter in any spot you like to make it closer to your ears.

An aftermarket component speaker system from our inventory will reveal a whole new world of sound detail and give you the best possible performance from your car audio system. Separate crossovers in a component system are designed to enable smoother and more focused sound. Reduced interference and improved audio clarity are the pleasant outcomes of the component speaker system’s construction. The tweeter may be either attached to the woofer, or, if you like, you can set it up in a separate location for a more detailed and dynamic sound. When mounting the tweeters, keep in mind that the most recommended position is when they are aimed at the listener’s ears.

When it comes to getting a stereo system for your vehicle, you basically have a choice between coaxial speakers and component speakers. You can find both of these speaker types in our comprehensive online portal varying in terms of price, ease of installation, and sound quality. Here are some factors to consider when purchasing an aftermarket component speaker for your vehicle. The number of speakers in your component system may vary. A standard setup has only tweeters and a woofer, with frequencies split between highs and lows. If you want a more advanced system, look for the one that also includes mid-range speakers. Choose the setup that works best for you in our website.

That’s how a component speaker system works: the highs go through the tweeters and the lows play through the mid-woofer. You can further upgrade your component system by including super tweeters and a subwoofer in your set up. Super tweeters are designed to produce the highest frequencies, while subwoofers are built to pick up the lowest ones. We reviewed a wide range of high-end component systems that will provide excellent sound quality, especially if enhanced with a subwoofer and super tweeters for more dedicated frequencies. Make a difference to the way your vehicle’s audio system sounds with IMCarExperts!
