processing parameters (including Time Correction and Parametric
EQ) and monitor amp conditions directly from the head unit.
|The perfect solution to
customising the sound of your head unit, Data Download taps into
the power and convenience of the Internet. It lets you finetune
your system settings onlineincluding Time Correction, Crossover,
and Parametric EQthen burn them to a CD-R and easily download
them to the head unit in your car.
|Another great new
quality-boosting Alpine technology. Included on a variety of
head units, it gives you selectable expansion modes for MP3, CD,
DVD, and FM that restore quality lost in recording/transmission.
|Functions that provide
enhanced bass and greater bass management.
|Bass Engine® Plus
|A combination of functions
that enhance bass and offer extremely fine control over bass and
total tonal response.
|Bass Engine® Pro
|Advanced technologies and
functions that provide the equivalent of a highly sophisticated
digital signal processor right in the head unit.
|This function lets you quickly
and easily find the songs you wantespecially on MP3/WMA discs
and the new HDA-5460. Convenient tools include search by
keyword, artist, album, song, folder, or playlist.
|Allows audio or video
components to be connected directly to the head unit.
|This feature allows you to
exactly match the illumination of the Alpine head unit with that
of your vehicle’s panel_quickly and easily, with an adjustment

|An exclusive Alpine DC-DC
converter doubles PreOut voltage from two to four volts. This
boost in voltage ensures that the music signal will not distort
at high volume levels.
60W x 4 Hybrid Amplifier
|Alpine gives you massive power
from a head unit with the V-Drive amp. Using a hybrid design (DCDC
like a regular amp plus BTL), it boosts voltage to 17.2 volts
for conversion into a powerful 60W x 4 output.
|Alpine's advanced application
of Class-D technology keeps the signal in the digital realm
until just prior to output, and markedly improves detail in the
high frequencies, thanks to enhanced time management (pulse)
|A divider separates the audio
signal into two or more frequency bands to feed different
amplifiers or speakers.
|Provides a boost at 40Hz to
increase the impact of sound from the subwoofer.
|Can be used to cut sub-bass
range signals caused by voltage fluctuations for better bass
|Speaker Level Input
|Allows amp to be connected
directly to a pre-installed head unit that does not have preamp
Field Effect Transistors have higher switching speeds than
ordinary FETs, for faster response, better linearity.
