AUBURN HILLS, MI (03.29.22) – Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. is now shipping two new Alpine Halo Floating Touchscreen Receivers, the iLX-F511 11-inch Multimedia Receiver and the iLX-F509 9-inch Multimedia Receiver.
The iLX-F511 and iLX-F509 feature High-Resolution Audio Playback (96kHz/24Bit) to bring out the full potential of music in the vehicle. They also include a WXGA High-Resolution Display (1280x720px) for an elevated driving experience.
Features like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and built-in Bluetooth hands-free calling with audio streaming allows access to music, messages, phone calls, and maps on a smartphone via a wired USB connection or wirelessly. These features are controlled through touch or voice commands with the included external microphone. The receivers are SiriusXM-Ready (SXV-300G2 2018-Up Connect Vehicle Tuner Kit sold separately; SiriusXM subscription required) and include built-in HD Radio for additional entertainment options.
While the Alpine Halo platform has always featured a floating style display with adjustable screen height and depth, a new pressure tile mechanism allows for more flexibility when positioning the angle of the screen for optimized viewing and access to dash and HVAC controls.
Exciting System Expandability Options
The decks have two camera inputs for front, side, or rearview cameras (sold separately). The rearview camera includes a distance guide display that overlays guidelines onto the screen for ease when moving in reverse.
When used with the DVR-C320R Premium 1080P Front and Rear Dash Camera with built-in drive assist (sold separately), the iLX-F511 and iLX-F509 can display real-time and recorded drives in high-definition and provide audible drive assist alerts like front collision, lane departure, and front car movement through the vehicle’s speakers.
On-board tuning features bring out the full potential of music playback with a 13-band parametric EQ per channel, for continuous frequency control. The 6-channel time correction ensures that music is staged properly in the front and center of the vehicle. Additional amplifiers can be added using the three sets of true 4V preamp outputs with front, rear, and subwoofer control if more power is needed.
The new RUX-H02 Alpine Halo Bass and Volume Controller (sold separately) easily mounts to the Alpine Halo Displays and allows quick-access controls to the subwoofer and main volume through a wireless Bluetooth connection. This optional Halo Subwoofer controller also controls volume. The sleek, tapered lines and silver trim of the RUX-H02 compliments the Alpine Halo Display design. The RUX-H02 is expected to ship Summer of 2022.
The iLX-F511 and iLX-F509 are Digital Media Receivers (no CD/DVD player). However, an HDMI input and output are included to connect a DVD player or even a smartphone for an all-digital audio and video connection through a single cable.
Convenient System Compatibility
Upgrading dash technology can often result in a loss of factory functionality such as steering wheel controls and access to engine codes. However, the iLX-F511 and iLX-F509 are compatible with the iDatalink Maestro Module (sold separately) allowing select OEM features to be retained and vehicle information displayed on the screen.
The iLX-F511 and iLX-F509 are now shipping at a MAP of $1399.95 and $1199.95 respectively and are available at Alpine Authorized retailers and at Preferred Online Stores. Installation options can be found on the Alpine-USA website through the store locator.
