Alpine Debuts Impressive New Head Unit, Amplifier, and Dash Cams at CES 2020

Alpine Electronics has a bunch of exciting new tech to announce during CES 2020. One of our favorite mobile tech brands is announcing an 11-inch touchscreen head unit, new speakers, amplifiers, subwoofers, and sound processors, a 9-inch aftermarket head unit for Jeep Wranglers, as well as new dash cameras. Read on to hear more from Alpine’s latest announcement.

The latest addition to Alpine’s Halo line is the iLX-F411 and it sports the famed “hovering” screen platform as its predecessor while expanding the size of the screen to a huge 11-inches. The iLX-F411 features a customizable user interface with three home screens and 22 available widgets, a capacitive touch screen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, built-in Bluetooth for hands-free calling and audio streaming, and will be SiriusXM-Ready.

The iLX-F411 has a single DIN chassis with adjustable installation options so you can be sure it’ll fit inside your vehicle without blocking factory buttons or dashboard features. The iLX-F411 will ship in March 2020 and will retail for $1,200.

Alpine’s PowerStack amplifiers changed the game when they were announced, and Alpine ups the ante this year with a new addition to the line. The KTA-200M is a Mono 400-Watt Power Pack Amplifier that utilizes Alpine’s exclusive Dynamic Peak Power (DPP) technology while stacking behind the head unit for a hideaway bass power solution.

 

The KTA-200M fits in the open space behind the Alpine iLX-W650 head unit, which is why it’s called “PowerStack.” The compact footprint occupies the same depth as a traditional 2-DIN chassis, which results in an easy installation without taking up too much space inside the dash.

“Consumers appreciated the 4-Channel PowerStack combination introduced in 2019,” said Mike Anderson, Vice President and General Manager, Brand Business Unit, Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. “However, since many consumers begin their upgrade path by adding bass, we added a Mono model, which provides that big bass sound without the need to accommodate for an amp.”

The KTA-200M will ship in March 2020 and will retail for $280. Check out the full spec list, below:

  • DPP (Dynamic Peak Power technology)
  • Stacking installation adds 400W DPP to the iLX-W650 using the supplied PowerStack bracket
  • 400W x 1 DPP (2 Ohm, 14.4V, 1% THD+N); 200W RMS x 1 (2 Ohm, 14.4V, 1% THD+N)
  • 83dB S/N (ref. 1W into 4 Ohm)
  • Available in March SRI: $280

Alpine has debuted two new dash cameras at CES 2020, each with a different fit and finish. Both dash cameras feature full HD video quality and HDR (high-dynamic range) for clear recording in day or night conditions. You can choose between driving mode, parking mode, and all-time recording mode to change the way the video recording feature operates.

Both dash cameras come with a second rear-view camera which have various use cases. These cameras are popular for ride-share drivers or it can be used to record external vehicle activity or rear-end accidents.

The DVR-C310R dashcam

The DVR-C320R Stealth Dash Camera offers a sleek “stealth” design that mounts directly to the interior windshield glass for a factory-looking fit and finish.

Whether it's gaming, mobile phones, and accessories, or PCs and Apple products, I'm interested. I use many Apple products in my daily life, such as the iPhone, iPad, and my MacBook Pro. I've also built a few PCs in my day, so I'd like to say that I'm a pretty well-rounded techie.
