Alpine Now Shipping Alpine Halo Preloaded Truck Subwoofer Enclosures

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.
