“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. 
 
Led by Alpine Brand Specialist Eric Brooks and National Trainer Chris Teguh, the webinar will feature an in-depth look at each new product, with real-life applications and tips on how to successfully market to consumers. Each webinar training is fully interactive and allows attendees to ask questions and get answers in real-time.
New to the webinars is an inside look at Alpine’s 2017 Honda® Civic Halo Sound Demo Vehicle. The civic will demonstrate the versatile R-A90S 6-Channel amplifier powering an active 3-way R-Series sound system with dual Halo Pre-Loaded R-Series 12-inch Subwoofer Enclosures. The demo vehicle will also showcase the OEM integration capabilities of the new PXE-X09 Hi-Resolution Wireless Digital Sound Processor with the factory head unit.

Week 1:
Monday, April 6 at 5:00 p.m. EST
Tuesday, April 7 at 3:00 p.m. EST

The INE-W970HD has a 6.5-inch WVGA display and Swipe Graphical User Interface that’s optimized for in-vehicle smartphone use so drivers can access Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ for music, messages, and navigation while keeping their eyes on the road. A built-in Bluetooth® external pre-tuned microphone is also available so you can answer phone calls or play your music hands-free using voice commands.  

Use your smartphone navigation to get you to your next adventure, or when you lose service, rely on built-in navigation with 3D mapping and Turn-By-Turn driving directions delivered by Text-To-Speech (TTS) technology. For added driving assistance, add front and rear-view camera systems with the INE-W970HD’s two composite camera inputs.

Play your music from your smartphone or the built-in HD Radio™ Tuner for AM/FM radio stations. If CDs are your style, use the built-in CD mechanism to listen to your favorite artists.

It’s the perfect power addition for vehicles that don’t have space for a traditional amplifier.

Put it in park after a long drive and use the built-in DVD mechanism for a personal drive-in movie experience or use the included HDMI input to bring up the entertainment on your smartphone. When plugged into the HDMI cable, your smartphone’s app layout is mirrored on the INE-W970HD’s touchscreen, so you can view the content on your phone on the 6.5-inch screen.

The INE-W970HD is available now at Alpine Authorized retails or online at www.alpine-usa.com through Crutchfield for $799.95. Installation options can be found on the Alpine-USA website through the store locator.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (Apr. 27, 2022) –Alps Alpine North America, Inc. (“Alpine”), is now shipping two new Dual 8” Alpine Halo Preloaded Truck Subwoofer Enclosures with ProLink™. The enclosures come preloaded with Alpine’s 8” S-Series (S-DB8V-TRK) and next-generation R-Series (R2-DB8V-TRK) subwoofers and feature an adjustable linking design.
 
Designed for Trucks
The Truck Subwoofer Enclosures were intentionally designed for the space underneath the backseat. Two 8” subwoofers are preloaded into a compact enclosure for under-the-seat installation and linked with a ProLink™ bracket that can adjust from 40”-51” to fit most full-size truck applications, including the 2018-Up RAM 1500 (crew cab), 2015-Up Ford F-150 (crew cab), 2018-Up GMC Sierra/Chevrolet Silverado (crew cab), 2011 – 2018 Jeep® Wrangler (in cargo area), and 2020 – Up Jeep® Gladiator. Height-adjustable “feet” accommodate uneven truck floors for a secure install.
Centered on the enclosures is an integrated amplifier mount tray that’s optimized for Alpine’s mono power amplifiers. This convenient design ensures that the entire system can be installed underneath the seat.
 
High-Performance Subwoofers
Each enclosure comes preloaded with high-performance subwoofers that are tuned for the unique cabin environment of the truck and add deep, accurate bass to the sound system. The ported enclosures house 8” S-Series (S-DB8V-TRK) or next-generation R-Series (R2-DB8V-TRK) subwoofers that provide options in both power and price. The 600W RMS S-DB8V-TRK was designed for optimum performance at an approachable price while the 750W RMS R2-DB8V-TRK feature deeper, more authoritative bass that can be played at higher volumes.
The enclosures were designed with dual voice coil drivers, wired in parallel for a 2Ω load to take the guesswork out of choosing an amplifier that’s compatible in power rating.
 
Groundbreaking Alpine Halo Design
The new Truck Subwoofer Enclosures join the Alpine Halo Family with a premium, unmistakable design. The enclosure pulls design cues from the Alpine Halo Display with unique, curved edges outlined by a silver trim and a front link bracket cover with an Alpine logo badge. The enclosures are built with sturdy, 5/8” MDF construction covered in a premium black carpet that will provide a premium look in the truck.
 
The R2-DB8V-TRK and S-DB8V-TRK are now shipping at a MAP of $799.95 and $699.95 respectively and are available at Alpine Authorized retailers and at Preferred Online Stores. Authorized Installation Centers can be found on the Alpine-USA website through the store locator.
