Alpine is supplying a premium Alpine- branded audio system for the all-new 2013 Dodge Dart, which went into production in May.
The Alpine system includes an 8-inch subwoofer with dual voice coils that is mounted in the rear parcel shelf. There’s also a 500+ watt power amp (12-channel) with built-in digital signal processing, plus 9 speakers.
Components are tuned to match the acoustics of the car’s interior.
“The Alpine system in the Dodge Dart is incredibly powerful and dynamic, while staying true to Alpine’s history of accurate and realistic sound reproduction, without compromise,” said Jim Walter, Sr. sound systems engineer, Alpine Electronics of America. “Extensive time and care was spent on in-vehicle tuning and listening to create a well-balanced, yet powerful system that will impress even the most discerning listeners.”
Speakers include five 3.5-inch full-range and four 6×9-inch mid-bass speakers all around the vehicle.
Alpine said, “Various real-time tuning features such as speed-dependent volume gain and dynamic equalization are implemented to keep the sound clean, balanced and free of distortion.”
The system is available on nearly every trim level including the SXT, Rallye, Limited and R/T.
The Dart claims it offers the most advanced infotainment in its class. It has a Uconnect system with an 8.4 inch screen, SiriusXM and Garmin navigation.
