Alpine Electronics Now Shipping the Alpine Halo Preloaded Subwoofers

AUBURN HILLS, MI (09.03.2020) – Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. is now shipping the Alpine Halo Preloaded Subwoofers Enclosures with ProLink. Preloaded with Alpine’s S and R-Series 10-inch (S-SB10V and R-SB10V) and 12-inch (S-SB12V and R-SB12V) subwoofers, these enclosures feature new ProLink technology that allows the customer to link two enclosures together using the 10-inch (KTX-H10) and 12-inch (KTX-H12) optional Linking Kit. Six individual products give the customer the flexibility to choose their desired level of bass.

Introducing ProLink
Alpine’s new ProLink technology was designed as an approachable and flexible upgrade path for the customer who has a single subwoofer but craves more bass in their sound system. While the previous option was to throw out the single enclosure and purchase a new dual enclosure, Alpine came up with a design that allows the customer to build on to their existing bass.

With Alpine’s new ProLink technology, the customer can link two single enclosures together using an optional Linking Kit (sold separately) to create a dual subwoofer enclosure. Unique to Alpine, this design gives the customer the flexibility in power and price to use a single subwoofer or add another subwoofer when more bass is desired.

New Alpine Halo Design Identity
The Alpine Halo platform has a unique design that’s known in the industry for sleek, tapered lines and a clean silver finish that modernizes the look and feel of any vehicle.

Taking cues from this groundbreaking design, the Alpine Halo Preloaded Subwoofer Enclosures with ProLink feature the same unique, curved edges, outlined by silver trim. This matching look creates a new Alpine Halo Design Identity and allows the customer to purchase a complete display and sound system that elevates the interior of the vehicle.

Optimal Sound Performance
As most preloaded subwoofer enclosures are similar in design and function, it can be difficult to find a uniquely designed enclosure that also optimizes your sound system’s performance. The Alpine Halo Preloaded Subwoofer Enclosures with ProLink are built for function and form.

The ported enclosure design features an optimized vent and rounded internal port edges that maximize the output performance of the subwoofer. The result is a higher total sound output for deep, powerful bass, reliable sound reproduction, and overall great sound quality.

Made from ¾-inch medium density fiberboard (MDF), the enclosures are built with sturdy, wooden, internal edge bracing around the corners of the enclosure for a system that’s built for reliable performance. Covered with a rugged, yet stylish black carpet cover, brush aluminum finish on the front baffle and finished with the Halo-inspired Silver trim, the subwoofers offer a custom look without the custom work.

Tuned for Alpine’s S and R-Series
The Alpine Halo Preloaded Subwoofer Enclosures with ProLink come preloaded with an S-Series or R-Series 10-inch or 12-inch option which compliments each family’s complete sound system offerings.

The S-Series Preloaded Subwoofer Enclosures give the customer the best in performance value. With a preloaded S-Series subwoofer, the enclosures are tuned for optimized performance with Alpine’s S-Series speakers and are compatible with the S-A60M Mono Power Amplifier.

The R-Series Preloaded Subwoofer Enclosures are for the customer that’s looking for a loud and fun performance. The preloaded R-Series subwoofer is tuned to perform well alongside Alpine’s R-Series speakers and is compatible with the R-A75M Mono Power Amplifier.

The Alpine Halo Preloaded Subwoofer Enclosures are now shipping in both a 10-inch and 12-inch S and R-Series option with an optional Linking Kit and will be available at Alpine Authorized retailers or online at http://www.alpine-usa.com through Crutchfield. Installation options can be found on the Alpine-USA website through the store locator.

Alpine Electronics Now Shipping the PXE-X09 16-Channel Hi-Res Wireless Digital Sound Processor

AUBURN HILLS, MI (09.02.2020) – Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. is now shipping the PXE-X09 16-Channel Hi-Res Wireless Digital Sound Processor. With 16 input and output channels and on-board tuning tools, the PXE-X09 will bring out the full potential of your music for a better sound experience.

OEM Integration
Modern factory systems pose a challenge to the discerning audio enthusiast who craves a premium music experience in their vehicle. With multi-channel sound systems pre-tuned to the specific vehicle environment and highly integrated displays that don’t have dedicated outputs for amplifiers, factory setups make it challenging to add aftermarket speakers or amplifiers without replacing the factory head unit.

Alpine’s new PXE-X09 has 16 channels of input and output that can manage even the most advanced factory sound systems and achieve a clean, full signal from the factory head unit.

The PXE-X09 hosts a collection of tuning tools such as the built-in signal generator and an on-board Real-Time Analyzer to help empower the tuner. Using these tools alongside the 10-band input EQ, 31 Band Parametric Output EQ, 1hz-step crossover, and up to 20ms of Time Correction, a tuner can dial in their system to perfection.

Configuration Wizard
When trying to add speakers or amplify a sound system while retaining the factory head unit, a mobile audio specialist would have to grab all signals and sum them together to create one full-range signal, while also re-tuning what the vehicle manufacturer pre-tuned. With this flattened, full-range signal, the specialist would then amplify and output to upgraded speakers. This is very challenging without costly tools, training, and equipment as the mobile audio specialist may not know what signals are going to each speaker and may not have a way to sum them together.

The PXE-X09 seeks to solve this problem with the Configuration Wizard, a tool that allows the tuner to specify the components in a factory system, as well as the target aftermarket system layout, and then appropriately serve up only the appropriate channels in the app’s home screen, as well as logically mix the channels to get a full range signal for further tuning.

The Configuration Wizard, along with the other on-board tuning tools, can be accessed wirelessly via Bluetooth from a smartphone or tablet or through a wired USB connection for PC. By downloading the free PXE-X09 DSP app (available on the App Store or Google Play), customers can get real-time tuning results and compare them with the “Before” and “After” effect. Tuning files can be saved directly to a smartphone, hard drive, or thumb drive for storage and shared via text message or email.

Music on Command
Quick sound adjustments can be made with the included LCD remote controller, which can be flush-mounted on the dash for easy access. The rotary knob can quickly adjust volume, preset storage and recall, subwoofer level, and source selection with results displayed on the LED screen.

While the PXE-X09 was designed to integrate into modern factory systems, it can also be used as a head unit or music source in older vehicles. The PXE-X09 can receive music sent directly from a smartphone with Bluetooth wireless streaming, so customers can listen to their playlists without replacing the factory head unit or adding an aftermarket head unit.

The PXE-X09 is now shipping for $1399.95 and will be available at Alpine Authorized retailers or online at www.alpine-usa.com through Crutchfield. Installation options can be found on the Alpine-USA website through the store locator.

Alpine Electronics Now Shipping the KTA-200M Mono Power Pack Amplifier

AUBURN HILLS, MI (07.28.2020) - Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. is now shipping the KTA-200M Mono Power Pack Amplifier. Utilizing the compact Power Pack design, the KTA-200M mounts behind the iLX-W650 7-inch Mech-Less Audio/Video Receiver to become Alpine’s newest PowerStack product.

A Simple Way to Add Bass

In 2018, Alpine introduced the KTA-450 4-Channel Power Pack Amplifier with PowerStack and it took the industry by storm. Customers loved how easy it was to add four channels of Dynamic Peak Power (D.P.P) to their iLX-W650 without the bulk of a traditional amplifier.

Through extensive research, Alpine found that many of these customers dedicated their budget to upgrade their sound system with a subwoofer – an upgrade that provides the most audible impact – so they required an amplifier solution that provided an easy avenue to add more bass.

With the highest performance value on the market, the KTA-200M is perfect for the customer looking for a quick and easy bass upgrade. The small footprint of the KTA-200M allows the amplifier to be mounted directly to the shallow chassis of the iLX-W650 for an easy, hideaway solution that provides the customer with a clear path to add bass to their sound system.

Reliable Performance

The KTA-200M features Alpine’s exclusive Dynamic Peak Power (D.P.P.) technology that doubles in power during “dynamic” musical passages. D.P.P. adjusts the gain of the amplifier to produce 400-watts of D.P.P. power for clean and impactful bass and then rolls back to 200-watts dynamically to maintain long-term efficiency. The ratio of power to price is unmatched in the industry.

New to the Power Pack platform is the voltage adapting circuit. This circuit maintains maximum source level without clipping for powerful, clean bass even at high volumes and dynamic musical passages.

System Compatibility

The KTA-200M mounts directly behind Alpine’s iLX-W650 to create Alpine’s unique PowerStack application. The compact footprint of the amplifier (7-inch W x 1.5-inch H x 3.5-inch D) and the shallow chassis of the iLX-W650 (1.9-inch D) occupies the same depth as a traditional 2-DIN chassis, resulting in an easy, hideaway bass solution that adds more power to the sound system without taking up space.

The simple attachment to the iLX-W650 allows the mobile electronics specialist to provide a total system package for the customer that simplifies the installation process, making it a cost-effective upgrade for the customer.

The KTA-200M has input capability to add the RUX-KNOB.2 Remote Bass Control Knob (sold separately). The remote bass knob controls the bass in the subwoofer by adjusting the gain on the amplifier for quick bass adjustments when needed. 

The KTA-200M is now shipping for $249.95 and will be available at Alpine Authorized retailers or online at http://www.alpine-usa.com through Crutchfield. Installation options can be found on the Alpine-USA website through the store locator.

Alpine Electronics to Offer “Stay-In-Formed” Online Product Training for Authorized Retailers

AUBURN HILLS, MI (03.27.2020) – Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. will offer six online training webinars for their U.S. Authorized Retailers in early April in light of recent training event cancellations and “stay-at-home” state announcements.

“This is an unprecedented time in our industry,” said Mike Anderson, Vice President and General Manager, Brand Business Unit, Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. “Alpine recognized the need to provide accessible online education and training so we could continue to provide sales and marketing support to our Authorized Retailers.”

In March, Alpine hosted a webinar on “The Journey to Alpine Sound,” highlighting the new 2020 Product Lineup, with information on carry-over models and upcoming marketing promotions.

After a positive response, Alpine decided to take it one step further and offer a new webinar, “Stay-In-Formed Alpine Product Training,” that focuses on applicable selling and marketing techniques for the new product line. The training will be fully accessible online, so attendees can “stay-in” while they learn.

Alpine Electronics Now Shipping the R-A90S 6-Channel Amplifier

AUBURN HILLS, MI (03.26.2020) – Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. is now shipping the R-A90S 6-Channel Amplifier. The R-A90S joins Alpine’s R-Series amplifier lineup that’s matched in both power and performance with the R-Series speakers and subwoofers for a “Loud and Fun” music experience.

All the Power You Need

Customers have grown to love the 5-channel amplifier solution due to its ability to provide total system power from a single amplifier. To add value and versatility to this category, without sacrificing the subwoofer power of a 5-channel, Alpine created a 6-channel amplifier with staggered power that has double the amount of power on the 5th and 6th channel. This allows the amplifier’s final two channels to provide a solid 500 watts to a single subwoofer at 4Ω when in 5-channel mode or 150 watts x 2 at 4Ω to mid-basses in 6-channel mode.

The R-A90S can be used in various layouts including a powerful 3-channel mode (200W x 2 @ 4Ω, 500W x 1 @ 4Ω), a 5-channel mode (75W x 4 @ 4Ω, 500W x 1 @ 4Ω), or utilize its onboard bandpass crossovers to independently power a 3-way component system in 6-channel mode (75W x 4 @ 4Ω, 150W x 4 @ 4Ω).

The result is the most versatile amplifier in its class, as it can act as both a 5-channel amplifier that can single-handedly power a full system as well as a 6-channel amplifier to power a 3-way active front stage. The unique channel layout is also beneficial to the mobile electronic specialist, as they can rely on one amplifier for multiple applications.

Unrivaled Performance

With the highest output in its category, the R-A90S drives power to the sound system to create a big dynamic music range for the listener while maintaining a proper sound stage between the singers and instruments in the music. 

The amplifier’s high damping factor (>500) produces crisp and clear notes, especially at low frequencies. This amplifier has an extremely low phase shift compared to its competitors, which keeps music focused and accurate for the most enjoyable listening experience.

The result is a powerful sound system that produces accurate sound images with minimal phase shift and internal noise throughout the amplifier’s Hi-Res compatible frequency response.

System Compatibility

The R-A90S has input capability to add the RUX-KNOB.2 Remote Bass Control Knob (sold separately). The remote bass knob controls the bass in the subwoofer by adjusting the gain on the amplifier for quick bass adjustments when needed. 

The R-A90S is now shipping for $599.95 and will be available at Alpine Authorized retailers or online at http://www.alpine-usa.com through Crutchfield. Installation options can be found on the Alpine-USA website through the store locator.

Alpine Connected with Jeepers at Holiday Bazaar in Atlantic City

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (12.13.19) – Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. attended the 2019 Jeepers Holiday Bazaar at the Showboat Hotel in Atlantic City, NJ on Saturday, December 7th and Sunday, December 8th. This new, Holiday-themed Jeep event featured a large selection of vendors, kid-friendly activities and a Holiday-themed Jeep decorating contest that got all attendees into the Holiday spirit.

Alpine sponsored the 2019 “Photos with Santa” station. Event attendees could snap a free kid’s photo with Santa that was located next to Alpine’s Booth on the Showboat Hotel event floor. Alpine offered free giveaways in their booth after a photo with Santa.

The Alpine Jeep was an attention grabber for all who attended the Holiday Bazaar.

The Alpine booth was stocked with the latest vehicle-specific Audio and Video technology, as well as premium sound system upgrades with easy Plug-and-Play installations built to directly fit select Jeep models.

Alpine dealers Proline Car Stereo and Brooklyn Car Audio, from the Metro New York City market, were on site with members of their sales teams. The stock in the booth area was inventory from the dealer’s stock. Will Sullivan, for Proline Car Stereo and Brooklyn Car Audio, stated “This was a terrific event for us. We were able to show the latest Alpine products to a large number of Jeep owners and enthusiasts. The Jeep is such a hot vehicle and Alpine has done such a great job of developing the latest in-vehicle technology designed to be Jeep specific. Jeepers travel and we saw quite a number from the New York City area.”

This Alpine area was set up with a display to demo products.

Making its first Jeep event debut was Alpine’s solution for the new 2018 – Up Jeep Wrangler and 2019 – Up Jeep Gladiator: The 9-inch Weather-Resistant X409-WRA-JL Navigation System with Off-Road Mode. This solution, built for easy, Plug-and-Play installation, enhances the lifestyle of any Jeep driver, from the adventurous Off-Roader to the day-to-day commuter.

The new 9-inch Weather-Resistant X409-WRA-JK Navigation System with Off-Road Mode for the 2011 – 2018 Jeep Wrangler was also on display, where visitors could witness faster screen performance and a new interface that’s designed to deliver an entertaining in-vehicle experience in any driving condition.

We offered great food including gumbo for all. Jimmy was great and worked with customers and demo’ed the Tundra all day. One of our customer’s Ford F150, loaded with Alpine, got a lot of attention too. This was our third Alpine X-Perience event and we truly appreciate Alpine‘s commitment and support of independent 12volt retailers. The Alpine X-Perience event promo is terrific for driving consumer awareness and business for specialty 12volt retailers.”
