ALPINE ELECTRONICS SHIPS NEW TYPE-X SERIES SPEAKERS

High-Performance Speakers Set Standard for In-Vehicle Sound Quality

TORRANCE, Calif., Dec. 4, 2007 — High-performance speakers bring out the full potential of the audio system in a vehicle. Alpine Electronics of America, Inc., the industry-leading manufacturer of automotive mobile media solutions, now is shipping its highly anticipated Type-X Series speakers to do just that.

The right speakers are crucial elements for great sound, particularly for a sophisticated mobile electronics setup. Type-X speakers deliver highly accurate, precise in-vehicle sound reproduction and better music detail, pleasing even the most scrupulous of audiophiles. The speakers come in two categories: Type-X Pro and Type-X Reference, making it possible for consumers to find the high-performance speaker that best fits their needs. All Type-X speakers have woofers that use a Neodymium magnet, which results in a reduced mounting depth and diameter. This allows the speakers to fit in more vehicles while also improving their performance and accuracy.

“For true sound connoisseurs, or even consumers that just want the best sounding car on the block, the Type-X speakers are the answer. These speakers sound great with any type of music, from classical to country,” said Stephen Witt, vice president, marketing and product development, Alpine Electronics.

Type-X Pro
The SPX-17PRO 6.5-inch component 2-way speaker and SPX-13PRO 5.25-inch component 2-way speaker each feature a cross-rib hybrid glass fiber woofer cone, 1.25-inch ring radiator tweeter and an audiophile-grade network for detailed reproduction of all types of music. Replaceable Phase Link modules are included with each Type-X Pro set to allow easy custom-tuning for many popular speaker locations. The SPX-17PRO was recognized with a 2008 CES Innovations Design and Engineering award for the In-Vehicle Audio category.

Type-X Reference
The SPX-17REF 6.5-inch component 2-way speaker and the SPX-13REF 5.25-inch component 2-way speaker combine premium sound with an easy-to-install design. The Type-X Reference speakers come with a tweeter mounting bridge that allows users to turn the component system into a coaxial system, for greater installation flexibility.
