Alpine IMPRINT Sound Processing Products


IMPRINT™ sound processing from Alpine Electronics of America, Inc., is a revolutionary approach to getting better sound, faster, in any vehicle. The system makes it possible to achieve a rich, enveloping and customized listening experience in the vehicle cabin. IMPRINT automatically overcomes the car’s inherent acoustical challenges in order to deliver unparalleled, highly accurate sound as the artist intended. With IMPRINT, the technical, time-consuming process of sound tuning a vehicle is quicker and easier than ever before.

IMPRINT is achieved by Alpine’s proprietary automotive implementation of Audyssey MultEQ XT, an automated frequency equalization and time domain adjustment technology that minimizes acoustical distortion, resulting in vastly improved soundstage imaging, tonal balance and clarity. Alpine offers two IMPRINT add-on products — the PXA-H100 Audio Processor for Alpine head units, and the PXE-H650 System Integration Audio Processor for factory OEM applications — and the CDA-9887 CD Receiver with built-in IMPRINT capabilities.
