AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (May. 4, 2022) – Alps Alpine North America, Inc. (“Alpine”), is now shipping the iLX-507, a High-Resolution 2-DIN 7-inch Multimedia Receiver.

New Benchmark for Dash Performance

For those looking to upgrade their factory system with the latest in-vehicle technology but maintain a factory look on their dash, the iLX-507 features a standard 2-DIN chassis and fitment with a 7-inch WXGA High-Resolution Display (1280x720px) that fits into most dash openings.

The iLX-507 features High-Resolution Audio Playback (96kHz/24Bit) via a wired USB connection to a smartphone or wirelessly through Bluetooth® connection so music can be streamed from popular Hi-Res platforms like Apple Music, Tidal, Amazon Music HD, and more. The iLX-507 also has a USB input so Hi-Res music files can be played directly from a USB drive.

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 receiver is SiriusXM-Ready® (SXV-300G2 2018-Up Connect Vehicle Tuner Kit sold separately; SiriusXM subscription required) and includes built-in HD Radio® for additional entertainment options.  

Exciting System Expandability Options  

The iLX-507 includes two camera inputs to add a front, side, or rear camera (sold separately). The rearview camera input 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-507 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 iLX-507 is compatible with the new RUX-H02 Alpine Halo Bass and Volume Controller (sold separately). The controller easily mounts to the dash and allows quick-access controls to the subwoofer and main volume through a wireless Bluetooth® connection.

The iLX-507 is a Digital Media Receiver (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, iLX-507 is compatible with the iDatalink® Maestro Module (sold separately) allowing select OEM features to be retained and vehicle information displayed on the screen.  

The iLX-507 is now shipping at a MAP of $749.95 and is 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.

Alps Alpine Co., Ltd., a leading manufacturer of electronic components and automotive infotainment systems, has brought the world numerous “First 1” and “Number 1” products since its founding in 1948. The Alps Alpine Group currently operates 110 bases in 26 countries and regions, supplying roughly 40,000 different products and solutions to around 2,000 companies worldwide. Those offerings include devices such as switches, sensors, data communication modules, touch input panels, actuators and power inductors; electronic shifters, remote keyless entry systems and other automotive units; consumer electronics like car navigation and audio-visual systems; and systems and services such as digital keys based on smartphone app and blockchain technology, and remote monitoring

Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. has redesigned its website for the U.S. aftermarket.  The website -- www.alpine-usa.com -- prominently features the Alpine Restyle dash systems while still supporting the entire aftermarket product line.    
Over the past two years, the company has shifted its focus to the Alpine Restyle series of products.  As a result, the website was redesigned to highlight the Alpine Restyle dash systems and give users a full experience of the products and how they integrate in the vehicle.  The centerpiece product is the X009, a 9-inch screen system with audio, video, navigation and Bluetooth® features that comes with a vehicle specific dash kit and harness. Since each X009 system is compatible with a specific vehicle, it is important for users to see each product installed in an actual vehicle dashboard.    
“The new website, like our other Alpine Restyle marketing initiatives, is designed to increase awareness amongst consumers about our vehicle specific dash systems in an easy-to-understand format.  The website annually receives around four million unique visitors, so it plays a vital part in driving them to authorized Alpine retailers for a premium product experience,” said Steve Crawford, vice president and general manager, aftermarket business unit, Alpine Electronics of America, Inc.
The first images that greet users on the home page are large rotating billboards for select products and promotions.  The recently launched Alpine Restyle cable TV commercial currently occupies one of the billboard spots.  The remainder of the home page highlights the Alpine Restyle 9-inch dash systems which are featured in the “New Restyle Arrivals” area.  Clicking on any of the images takes the user to a dedicated product page for that system.  
To further support the Alpine Restyle dash systems, a new “Restyle My Truck” dash configurator is available from the home page menu bar.  To get started, users are prompted to select the make, model, vehicle trim and dash trim of their truck or SUV.  Once done, the 9-inch and/or 8-inch Restyle dash system that is compatible with their vehicle is presented.  By choosing the desired Restyle dash system and pressing the “Restyle My Truck” button, the applicable product page is served and provides the user with detailed information about the system.  A “Contact an Expert” button is found on every 9-inch and 8-inch Restyle dash system product page and connects the user to an authorized Alpine retailer near their location.  
Social media engagement provides another way for Alpine to connect with its fans, and enthusiastic consumers and retailers often share photos of Alpine products installed in their vehicles.  To optimize the valuable trove of Alpine photos on the web, an “Alpine Owner’s Showcase” was implemented on the website’s homepage.  A photo collage of 9-inch Alpine Restyle dash systems installed in various vehicles shows how the 9-inch screen transforms the dash while providing a factory-like finish.  The photos are captured from Alpine’s Facebook (facebook.com/AlpineUSA), Instagram (instagram.com/AlpineUSA) and Twitter (twitter.com/AlpineUSA) feeds and are continually updated.  Information about the authorized Alpine retailer who installed the system is displayed when applicable.
All Alpine products are accessible through the “Products” button on the menu bar.  The Alpine Restyle systems appear first in the Products section, but users can quickly jump to other Alpine products by pressing the “Alpine Products” button in the top black border.  All other Alpine products are grouped by category for easy identification.
Back-end improvements have also been applied to the website for enhanced overall usability.  The website utilizes a responsive design so that the content layout automatically adjusts to the size of the screen that is in use.  This design ensures a consistent page experience no matter the device (smartphone, tablet, laptop, etc.) that is being used.

Recognition by One of the World’s Most Prestigious Design Awards for Industrial Products

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (Apr. 28, 2022) – AlpineF#1Status, the pinnacle of car audio developed by Alps Alpine Co., Ltd. (TSE: 6770; President & CEO: Toshihiro Kuriyama), has won an iF Design Award 2022 in the Product category.

The iF Design Award is one of the world’s most prestigious design awards. This year, a total 10,776 products and projects were entered by 4,179 companies in 57 countries and rigorously evaluated by 132 design experts. As a result, 3,518 products and projects of 1973 companies won an award. This is the first time Alps Alpine has won the award.

More information can be found here: https://ifdesign.com/en/winner-ranking/project/alpine-f1-status/339254.

AlpineF#1Status, the pinnacle of car audio systems, is the first in the industry to achieve 384kHz/32bit high-resolution playback enabling immersive experiences inside the vehicle cabin that emulate a live performance. Besides outstanding performance specs, a dignified elegance comes through in an outward appearance stripped of superfluous decoration, as well as the graphical user interface (GUI), while the ability to take on and rapidly process voluminous audio source data is given expression through the tremendous potential hinted at in solid modeling and depth of the light indicator. Use of custom LEDs for hard-key illumination and other ideas for sound creation established over the years by Alps Alpine are inherited while much attention has been directed into the finer elements of design conjuring up a sense of overwhelmingly good sound in high-resolution playback.

The AlpineF#1Status status system was developed by Alps Alpine, with group company Alpine Electronics Marketing, Inc. launching global sales in December 2021. For more information, visit the product introduction page below https://www.alpine-usa.com/alpineflagship.

As a result, 3,518 products and projects of 1973 companies won an award.

Detroit, November 26, 2019 – Introducing the 9-Inch X409-WRA-JL Weather-Resistant Navigation System with Off-Road Mode. This mech-less (no CD/DVD) in-dash audio/video/navigation (AVN) system is a direct-fit solution for the new 2018 – Up Jeep® Wrangler and 2019 – Up Jeep® Gladiator.

The X409-WRA-JL is designed for Plug-and-Play installation and includes a vehicle-specific dash bezel and factory-compatible wiring harness to create a direct-fit solution for the dash and integrated operation in the vehicle, so factory features like the volume knob, steering wheel controls, and HVAC system are retained.

Drivers can revisit their favorite off-road adventures through Off-Road Trip Recording.

AlpineF#1Status, the Pinnacle of Car Audio, Creates Atmosphere with “Perfect Sync”

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (Jun. 23, 2021) – Alps Alpine Co., Ltd. a leading manufacturer of electronic components and automotive infotainment systems and its domestic marketing division Alpine Electronics of America, Inc., introduce AlpineF#1Status, the pinnacle of car audio.

Developed through the culmination of knowledge and technical expertise gathered over the years as a premium sound system supplier, AlpineF#1Status is a complete premium car audio system that embodies Alpine’s vision of “Emotion in Mobility,” by delivering an unparalleled music experience. It provides listeners with the emotional experience of a live performance.

To create accurate sound reproduction, development was focused on three critical parameters: Time scale synchronization of audio signal transmission, sound arrival and custom tone frequency range of a 4-way speaker system.

Achievement of 384kHz/32bit High-Resolution Audio Playback and Playback Environment

Appeal of High-Resolution Audio

The human ear can hear frequencies up to 20kHz, however, 384kHz high-resolution audio allows playback of ultrahigh tonal ranges up to 192kHz. This poses a problem, as limiting the audio to a range that can be heard by humans causes compromises in the original sound wave, creating a reproduction that differs from the original.

High-resolution audio is reproduced by incorporating frequency ranges that cannot be heard by the human ear. This provides a richer expression in high tonal ranges, expanding the sense of detail and depth of the music. Additionally, high-resolution audio reproduction is clean sound with minimal distortion, even when the music is played at high volumes.

Time Scale Synchronization of Audio Signal Transmission

Until recently, the head unit, used for audio source playback, and the audio processor, used for tuning, were separate systems due to the limited environment and installation space in the vehicle cabin. For this reason, it was necessary for each device handling digital signals to have an independent crystal (clock) to process the signals and timing of each component. This causes deviations in the digital signal called “jitter” (clocking errors) which affects the quality of the audio playback. The Master Clock Management System in the AlpineF#1Status system was developed to resolve this.

Used for the first time in a car audio system, OCXO is a crystal oscillator with temperature control system. It enhances audio precision with a design containing two crystals housed in a dedicated case with enhanced heat insulation that increases the frequency-temperature characteristic from ±50ppm (parts per million) to ±0.1ppb (parts per billion) through an automated temperature control system.

To fully utilize this high-precision device, it is configured to be directly supplied as a Digital to Analog (DA) conversion clock to the ES9038PRO DAC used to achieve 384kHz/32bit playback. This minimizes audio quality deterioration caused by clock jitter and provides a configuration that reaches the full potential of high-resolution audio.

Sound Arrival

In traditional car audio systems, the distance to the listener is asymmetrical on the left and right depending on the speaker placement and seat positioning, thereby requiring high-precision tuning to optimize sound quality.

AlpineF#1Status is equipped with four premium digital sound processors running up to 1GHz/64bit, delivering processing capability of a high-power computer CPU to achieve accurate sound tuning. This enables AlpineF#1Status to perform time alignment adjustments with a precision of approximately 0.9mm, improving from the equivalent of approximately 7.2mm which is the smallest unit possible in existing products.

4-Way Synchronization of Speaker Tone

Conventional speakers are made with materials and a structure suited to the entire playback frequency band, while component speaker systems are made up of materials and structures designed for its individual frequency band. For example, thin diaphragms are lightweight and suitable for playback of high-speed high notes but have reduced rigidity. Meanwhile, highly rigid diaphragms are suitable for low notes, but they are thick and heavy, and not suitable for playback of high notes.

AlpineF#1Status uses high-performance carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) in each speaker that completely synchronizes the speaker’s tone by unifying the diaphragm material of each speaker. CFRP is lightweight, like plastic, yet highly rigid like aluminum. This aerospace material is versatile enough to be used for frequencies ranging from low to ultra-high range and results in the best diaphragm design to achieve the performance of the full specification of high-resolution audio.

As a result, the playback frequency of each AlpineF#1Status speaker covers a wider range than ever before, enabling a wider cross-over for each system component.

Introduction of AlpineF#1Status will begin with the launch of a new demo vehicle, which will tour the U.S. in the summer of 2022. Sales will start in fall. Details will be provided on www.alpine-usa.com.

Fleet of Three Trucks Will be Used for Dealer and Consumer Events

Torrance, Calif. (May 24, 2018)– Alpine Electronics has unveiled a fleet of three new demo trucks which will bring immersive Alpine sound experiences to dealers and consumers.  The 2018 trucks-- a Toyota Tacoma, Ford F-150, and Ram 1500 --are mobile showcases for the Alpine HALO9 in-dash system and X-Series sound system products.

“The trucks are not just eye candy for the road,” said Mike Anderson, Vice President and General Manager, Brand Business Unit, Alpine Electronics of America, Inc.  “They are part of a complete training and event package that Alpine Brand Specialists will deploy at authorized retailers and consumer events where attendees can receive immersive and impactful sound demos.” 

The demo truck experience includes in-truck sound demos and hands-on product education sessions to give guests a better understanding of the materials and processes used in these high-end products.

Alpine In-Dash, Sound, and Camera Systems

The trucks essentially feature the same Alpine systems, with the iLX-F309 Alpine HALO9 as the centerpiece of each set-up.  The Alpine HALO9 is a mech-less system with 9-inch touch screen featuring Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and Bluetooth®wireless technology.  Its unique design allows the 9-inch screen to “hover” above the dash board, eliminating the need for custom installation of the large screen. 

Each truck’s sound system consists of a sound processor and X-Series speakers, amplifiers, and subwoofers, with the Tacoma and F-150 systems measuring at 2300W RMS and the Ram 1500’s system at 3200W RMS.  The F-150 and Ram 1500 have a custom 3-way system in the front consisting of the woofer from the X-S69C 6x9-inch set, along with the X-S65C 6.5-inch component set installed in custom A-pillars.  The Tacoma uses the X-S69C 2-way speakers in the front factory locations.  X-Series 6.5-inch speakers are used for rear fill on all the trucks and are installed in the factory speaker locations.

For bass impact, the Tacoma and F-150 both feature a single X-W10D4 10-inch subwoofer in a ported enclosure.  The Ram 1500 has two X-W10D4 subwoofers in a pair of custom sealed boxes installed under the truck, with the subwoofers mounted in the floor and firing upwards into the cab.  In all the trucks, the subwoofers are powered by the X-A90M mono amplifier (two X-A90Ms are in the Ram 1500), while two X-A70F 4-channel amplifiers support the front and rear speakers.  Tying the entire sound system together is the PXE-0850S wireless digital sound processor.  With its 12 channels of outputs, the PXE-0850S allows for the management of complex, multi-channel systems and lets users apply detailed sound tuning and adjustments through a smartphone or PC app. 

The HCE-C2600FD multi-view front camera and the factory rear camera provide peace of mind when driving, while the KCX-C2600B front and rear camera selector enables quick toggling between the front and back camera images.

Additional Accessories

Stinger sound damping products, wire, and wiring accessories are used in the trucks.  The Ram 1500 is equipped with KMC Wheels which were provided by Wheel Pros and are used with Pro Comp tires.  The Tacoma and F-150 feature ProComp wheels and tires.  Bak Industries tonneau covers are installed on the truck beds. 

Regional Coverage

The trucks will mainly reside in three regions, with the Tacoma based in California, the F-150 in Texas, and the Ram 1500 on the east coast.  Authorized Alpine retailers are encouraged to contact their sales rep for information about the schedule for each truck.
