Key Features

Alpine 300W 17cm 2way component speaker system - Alpine Car Audio Systems R-S65C.2

If you play your music loud and want others to know, the R-Series speakers are the match for you.

You’ll enjoy a center sound stage with speakers that play loud and clear without distortion. The R-Series speakers are tuned with emphasis on the high- and low-end frequencies, so they deliver power while naturally producing bright, active sound.

They are the perfect power and performance match for the R-Series subwoofers and amplifiers.

The Alpine R-Series Sound Components
The R-Series line-up is “The Loudest Family on the Block”. The products are designed to be played loud, delivering a fun and exciting listening experience and are known for dependable performance and high-quality sound. All R-Series components are developed to perfectly match each other.

HAMR Surround

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.

Re-Engineered For Highest Performance
More power: the 2nd generation of R-Series speakers include many improvements over the 1st generation, such as the increased voice coil diameter from 30 to 35mm, while the Neodymium magnet diameter was also enlarged. This results in a stronger motor structure with a more powerful bass output.


CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer) is a very lightweight yet rigid material. On a standard, off-the-shelf speaker cone, the edges are naturally weaker than the center due to the elongated shape. Since the CFRP material is directional, it can be manipulated during the molding process to strengthen the areas of the cone that are normally weak. The result is rigidity throughout the cone that delivers accurate and efficient performance.

Hi-Res Audio Tweeters
The 2nd generation R-Series tweeters feature Hi-Res Audio capabilities with a frequency response of higher than 40kHz. The tweeter cones are constructed by CFRP, allowing them to reproduce very high frequencies of over 40kHz, while maintaining an overall soft and smooth tonal balance of a soft dome tweeter.

Outstanding Clarity
The new voice coil is made of Aluminium, compared to regular copper wire coils. Alpine increased the voice-coil diameter from 30mm to 35mm in the 2nd generation R-Series: the benefit is higher clarity especially in the mid-high frequency area and a more powerful bass reproduction.

Wave Guide Focuses the Sound
Alpine has developed a Wave Guide for the cone to further improve sound quality. Molded into the speaker cone, it prevents phase distortion of the sound waves from the diaphragm, and focuses the sound for optimum clarity.

Included Mesh Grill
There is an metal mesh grill included to protect the woofer in open installations.

Included Trim-Rings
The included installation adapters allow easy installation in a wide range of vehicles and door speaker mounts. It also includes a 6 x 8” adapter.

Easy To Install Network
The external network is very compact and easy to install. Simply slide open the cover to gain access to the tweeter level adjustment (+3dB / 0dB / -3dB). This ensures a perfect balance between woofer and tweeter level in your car.

Swivel Tweeter
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 can be installed in flush-mount or on-dash configuration – all installation adapters are included.

slim design, big sound!!!!
martyn hillcrest on 22/11/2019 5 star rating

purchased these after buying focal's that i couldn't get to fit into my car as the magnets sat too close to the window runner. although i thought the speakers wouldn't be as good i am pleasantly surprised, they are extremely well made and although they are fairly slim they really do reproduce bass very well! the cross overs are built to the back of the mid and the tweeter has an inline adjustable crossover which is great, they even came with sticky pads for the tweeters to seal the gap between the tweeter and the factory grill, very impressive speakers for the money.

    Car: VW Transporter - 2005 >

    im liking this product but i can see from your website your on a sale at the moment, and there is also a sale now on logo on this item but when you look at the price the is no discount on this!! why?


    the sale now on is imported to every picture thats all if there is a saving it would be shown, however these speakers are brand new and are currently selling at retail price only. you would normally see a reduction in the price of new items within the first 6 months to a year of the product being released but most alpine speakers hold there prices simply because alpine require you to be a premier centre to sell some of there speakers. hence most places dont sell these models

    Car: VW Transporter - 2005 >

    will these fit the above vehicle? i know ill have to buy the adapter pods for the
    front doors


    yes they would be a perfect fit for your vehicle and will if fitted correctly make a massive difference to the quality of sound, i would highly recommend using the following sound deadening for the door skins and panels. on most of the T5 we use 4 s1.8 and 2 sf10 for the door trim panel.

    DQoneS1.8 Standard 1.8mm Foiled Sound Deadening Single Sheet
    DQoneSF10 Silence Fix 10mm Sound Absorbing Foam Single Sheet - 10mm
