View Full Version : Alpine SPR-176A
Hey guys, just wondering if any of you are running these or if you have heard them. After hearing about infinity's being too harsh up top, i'm looking for something a little less. i know that alpine makes some good decks and amps, so i'm assuming their speakers would be pretty nice. also they are a bit cheaper, which never hurts. i'm looking to build a "better than the average guy who went to the stereo shop and said hook me up" system.. it will be built off a alpine 7897 deck, an alpine F540 (hopefully) amp, 6 inch midbass subs in the back of the doors and some 10.1 infinity perfect subs behind the seat (regular cab) .. going for soundquality but be able to bump if i want too.
just looking for opinions. thanks.

Im running 2 MRV-T707 Amplifiers Driving SPX-F17T & SPX-177A Component Speakers. I love the speakers and amplifiers but the speakers are Alpine's top of the line series and are a bit pricey. You can go here: http://126.96.36.199/showroom/showroom_tjarratt_tahoe.htm to see my entire system.
first of all, nice system.. :D second.. now you got me thinking... i was going to do 2 way components and a midbass driver.. i was planning on paying around 250-300 off ebay for components, and another 200 or so on midbass drivers.. so all together that is approx 450-500.. i see the spx f17t's for 475 approx on ebay... so i can just get it all in one step since they are 3 way... so how do you like the midbass? where are your mid woofers located? do they need alot of mounting room? are the tweeters way harsh? if so, they are adjustable right? what kind of power are you running to them?
thanks alot bro

The 3-way components are amazing. Each crossover has 930 different configurations, so yes...they are adjustable. Alpine includes a chart of jumper settings to find the best configuration for your speaker position. As for mounting, I put both the 6.5" and the 5.25" speakers in the door behind the stock grill and the tweeter in the A-pillar. You can only put both mid range speakers in the door if your truck is 99+, without doing some major custom work. Eventhough the speakers fit behind the grill in my truck I still had to cut quite a bit of metal behind the 5.25" to allow it to fit in the door. I am running one MRV-T707 (600w) to the SPX-F17T components in the front and another T707 to the SPX-177A's in the back doors. I have pictures of the speakers behind the grill that are not on that website if you would like me to email them to you. I installed my entire system myself so if you have any other questions feel free to ask.
what does that amp really put out to the components? i keep seeing it as 70x2 rms at 4 ohm.. is that what you are running? is that enough power? i mean for 3 ways, i would think (i'm no expert) that it would be a little low.. does it still get loud? i thought with more power you can go louder with less distortion. alot of the higher end components ask like 125w rms? do these compare.. also, anything you want to send me about your setup, you can to email@example.com thanks.. alot man

Those amps push about 100w RMS @ 14.4v (engine running) and up to 225w peak per channel @ 14.4v. This is PLENTY of power for these speakers, and yes...they get extremely loud. I set up my system so that the speakers start distorting at full volume on the head unit and the gains on those amps are only at about 3/4 power.
