EXPERIENCE DETAIL YOU’VE NEVER HEARD BEFORE
The new X-Series speakers combine proven technologies, superior materials and innovative design to reproduce sound so accurately, you’ll feel like you’re right in front of the performance.
Hi-Res Audio is the next level of digital audio for music fans alike and requires an incredibly wide dynamic range to reproduce music with amazing realism and depth. The X-Series speakers are Hi-Rez compatible and when paired with other X-Series components, provide an incredible Hi-Rez Audio experience.
A NEW APPROACH TO SOUND QUALITY
“Good enough” is a common phrase used to describe many factory vehicle sound systems these days. Alpine’s top sound engineers from all over the world gathered in Alpine headquarters to deeply research and evaluate the state of in-car sound from various sources including aftermarket sound systems and high-end factory systems. The researched showed that In-vehicles sound systems of today have achieved the ear-pleasing, wide dynamic range and are able to reach sufficient volume levels. What they found that was commonly missing in all of these systems was an accurate sound stage; the “appearance” of the music to be properly positioned in front of you, just like you would experience in live music. This missing attribute is what drove us to create a sound philosophy called Alpine: Image Defined.
Alpine ID for short, is the new global sound philosophy with an evolutionary approach for solving what’s missing in most car audio systems these days: great spatial imaging and depth of stage. It centers on developing matched sound systems that work together to create a highly realistic sound stage with great dynamic range and quality. X-Series the first set of audio components to be engineered under this new thinking.
NEW CONE MATERIAL
The X-Series’ speaker cone is made from a tightly interwoven Nano-fiber material. The extremely small diameter fibers create a damped, rigid cone structure while staying lightweight. Because of this light rigidity, the X-Series speaker is capable of highly accurate sound reproduction while maintaining a soft tonality. The cone’s resistance to flex ensures there is very little to no discoloration of sound and phase shifts. The result is a highly accurate speaker that is well staged in front of you.
Alpine’s High Amplitude Multi-Roll surround is a patented technology originally implemented in subwoofers to increase excursion while maintaining accuracy and linearity. This technology has made its way into midrange speakers and the results have been spectacular. The multi-roll design allows an even unfolding of the surround which creates incredible linearity and colorization rejection.
RADIAL RING MAGNET
Repositioning the already powerful neodymium magnet to the center of the voice coil allows for direct drive of the coil. A traditional magnet mounted outside of the voice sends its magnetism through the top and bottom plate resulting in losses of magnetic strength. This direct-drive effect allows for increased efficiency and accuracy. A side effect of moving the magnet into the center pole is the ability to reduce the size of the outer basket making it easier to fit in various vehicle applications.
