Alpine Electronics Now Shipping Next-Gen Alpine Halo R-Series Preloaded Subwoofer Enclosures

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (Mar. 07, 2022) – Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. is now shipping the next-generation Alpine Halo R-Series Subwoofer Enclosures with ProLink™. The enclosures come preloaded with Alpine’s new 10” and 12” R-Series subwoofers that feature an all-new design to offer a cleaner, more controlled bass response.
Deeper Bass Output
Design improvements to the R-Series subwoofers include larger double-stacked magnets, which play deeper bass with more authority. A new ceramic composite dust cap provides incredible internal damping (vibration absorption) to smooth out the frequency response and reproduce tight bass. Featuring Alpine’s High Amplitude Multi-Roll (HAMR) Surround Technology, the subwoofer cone efficiently moves air while staying cool, which also contributes to increased output from the subwoofers.
The new design and enhanced performance of the next-generation R-Series subwoofers result in a cleaner, more controlled bass response from the Alpine Halo R-Series Preloaded Subwoofer Enclosures with ProLink™. The ported enclosures feature a vent and rounded internal port edges that maximize the output performance of the subwoofer, for deeper, reliable bass. Each enclosure is also wired for optimized performance with Alpine’s R-Series R-A75M Mono Power Amplifier.
Unique ProLink® Technology
Alpine’s unique ProLink™ technology was designed with the sound system builder in mind. ProLink™ allows more flexibility in both power and price to start with a single subwoofer enclosure and add an additional subwoofer using a Linking Kit (sold separately) to join two enclosures together to create a dual system when more bass is desired.
Groundbreaking Alpine Halo Design
The Alpine Halo R-Series Preloaded Subwoofer Enclosures with ProLink™ share the premium, unmistakable design of the Alpine Halo Family. The enclosures pull design cues from the Alpine Halo Display with unique, curved edges outlined by a silver trim and a front baffle for a matching system aesthetic. Built with sturdy, 3/4” MDF construction and covered in a premium black carpet, these enclosures give the impression of a custom look, without the custom work.
The R2-SB12V and R2-SB10V are now shipping at a MAP of $499.95 and $449.95 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.
