Yep, probably burned up the voice coil with clipping. (not distortion)

They are nowhere close to Alpine Type S quality.

They should be amped with something besides a headunit.

If you get the Alpine Type S, you definitely need at least a 50 watts RMS x 4 amp.

There's all kinds of good stuff out there these days. Stay away from Walmart and do not touch soundstream! They used to be good, but are piles of dog shit now

6.5's nowadays don't sound any better than 6x8's nowadays. There is no logic to it.

That amp will do 75 watts RMS x 2 @ 4 ohm load.
Thanks. Yeah on the back of the amp it says 62.5 @ 4 ohm which I'm sure it's underrated it's the old turtle shell shaped ones like in rangaaa truck.

So I m looking between the alpines you sent and I found these

Pretty close in price and everything which ones you think will sound better and last longer?

I know infinity usually sound good but usually have durability issues from what I've seen

Ive had infinity, rf, hertz, jl, alpine, pioneer, and sundown speakers in my fords. By far my favorite is the Sundown components but of the two listed above I would choose infinity over the alpine. Thats just my opinion
