Alpine Introduces PrismaLink™ S-Series Preloaded Subwoofer Wedge Enclosures

The subwoofers feature an integrated RGB lighting system and a multi-link capable design

Auburn Hills, Mich. (Jan. 5, 2023) – Alps Alpine North America, Inc. (“Alpine”) introduces PrismaLink™, a new line of S-Series Preloaded Subwoofer Wedge Enclosures that feature an integrated RGB lighting system and multi-link capable design for single, dual, and even quad-enclosure applications. The enclosures will come in 12” (S2-SB12), 10” (S2-SB10), and 8” (S2-SB8) versions.

“We believe this new line of subwoofer enclosures will not only engage and excite the long-time Alpine fan but attract a younger demographic of customers who are new to aftermarket car audio,” said Mike Anderson, Executive Director at Alps Alpine North America, Inc. “The integrated lighting feature enhances the cosmetic appeal of these woofers. The linking feature enables the user to build a bass system for their vehicle step-by-step if they wish, according to their budget.

The name PrismaLink™ is a marriage of two key features in the S-Series Preloaded Subwoofer Wedge Enclosure: “Prisma,” a nod to a spectrum of light and the optimized wedge shape of the subwoofer, and “Link” referring to the multi-link capability of the physical enclosure and visual lighting experience.

S-Series Performance

The S-Series Preloaded Subwoofer Wedge Enclosures feature a sealed 12” (S2-SB12) 10” (S2-SB10) and 8” (S2-SB8) option that are pre-loaded with the Next-Generation S-Series subwoofers.

The subwoofers feature a Carbon Fiber Poly Propylene Cone (CFPP) with ceramic/polypropylene composite dust cap contribute to a lightweight but rigid subwoofer that yields high output and low distortion during play. The subwoofer also features Alpine-exclusive High-Amplitude Multi-Roll (HAMR) surround for maximum output. Each enclosure was designed and tuned for optimal playback of the S-Series subwoofers.

Unique Linking Design

With a compact size and unique wedge shape, the enclosures were intentionally designed to be installed in tight spaces, like behind the seat or in the trunk of a vehicle. The twist-lock surround ring allows for easy installation of the enclosure.

The PrismaLink™ enclosures follow a similar linking format used in Alpine’s HALO Preloaded Subwoofer enclosures. A multi-link design allows them to be used in a single, dual, or even quad-enclosure application with an optional linking kit for the 12” (KTX-LK12), 10” (KTX-LK10), and 8” (KTX-LK8) versions.

Also unique to PrismaLink™ is the pre-wired RGB light integration in the enclosure, located in the enclosure trim bars. This lighting system features a full spectrum of color options that are controlled by an RF remote. When used as a multi-linked enclosure application, the RGB feature is able to connect across the subwoofers for an uninterrupted visual experience. 

The enclosures feature dual 4Ω voice coils wired in parallel for a 2Ω load and are optimized for Alpine’s S-Series or R-Series Mono-Powered Amplifiers.  

The PrismaLink™ S-Series Preloaded Subwoofer Wedge Enclosures will ship in March 2023 in a 12” (S2-SB12) option for $399.95, a 10” (S2-SB10) option for $379.95 and an 8” (S2-SB8) option for $329.95 that can be purchased at Alpine Authorized retailers and Preferred Online Stores. Please check the store locator on www.alpine-usa.comfor details.
