Worth every single penny.

I originally had the Alpine SPE-6090 and those speakers were flawless. The bass was buttery smooth and I loved everything about them. Unfortunately Best Buy screwed up, wired the right one backwards and caused the speaker to blow. I bought the S-S69 as a replacement thinking they would be better and hated them. They got loud and clear but there was absolutely no bass compared to the SPE-6090. I even gave it time to break in and it still sounded the same after a year. I decided to purchase these, the SPS-619 because the cone material was the same as the SPE-6090 unlike the S-S69 which had their supposedly superior "Hamr" design for more excursion. These sound light-years better than the S-S69 and even better than the SPE-6090. Once they broke in, they just got better and better with every car ride. I would buy these pair of speakers a million times over and would recommend it to anyone that loves clarity and bass. I used to depend on my speakers for bass but now I have subs installed and they just compliment the system beautifully. If you're hesitating on buying these, don't. Buy them right TF now. You will not be disappointed, I promise. Just give them time to break in and you will be blown away by its performance!!!
