Brand Spotlight: Alpine

Updated: Oct 8, 2021

Highlighting One of Car Audio’s Most Popular Brands


If you’ve ever looked into aftermarket car audio for your vehicle, then you’ve probably already heard the name Alpine come up in conversation. Not only is Alpine one of the most established brands in car audio, it’s also one of the most reliable and affordable. They’ve made a name for themselves as being a go-to option for those that are looking to upgrade their car speakers and stereos while also being budget-friendly.

Here at San Diego Car Stereo, we proudly tout the Alpine brand because we know they manufacture top quality products that our customers can rely on for years to come. It’s important to us that our customers are not only happy on installation day, but that they continue to enjoy their aftermarket upgrades long after they’ve left our shop. This is why we keep a large variety of their products available in stock.

Alpine Stereos

For those with an older model car, there is a lot to be had by upgrading to a brand-new Alpine stereo system. Virtually every Alpine stereo these days has Bluetooth technology so that you can seamlessly (and wirelessly) sync up your phone to your in-dash unit. That means that you can stream all your favorite playlists and podcasts right from your phone.

If you want to take things up a notch, you can go with an Alpine stereo that has Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. This feature allows you to access all your favorite cell phone apps right from the stereo’s massive touchscreen. For instance, you can use the maps app for all your navigation needs or make a hands-free phone call. The beauty of Apple CarPlay/Android Auto is that it gives you all the capabilities of your smartphone right on your stereo. Additionally, since you can issue most commands with your phone, you can keep your hands securely on the wheel. This cuts down on distractions, button-pushing, and promotes better overall driving habits.

The Alpine iLX is one of the top stereos from the Alpine line-up that our customers love. No matter what make, model, or year your vehicle is from – there’s an Alpine stereo that’s sure to be a perfect match. Contact the pros at San Diego Car Stereo for more info about car audio installation.

Alpine Speakers

For those looking to upgrade their vehicle’s sound quality, look no further than Alpine car speakers. The reason that we regularly back the Alpine brand is because they use some of the highest quality materials in the industry. Most Alpine woofer cones these days are made out of pearl-mica injected polypropylene or carbon fiber-reinforced plastic, providing clean and heavy basslines. Ideally, you want a speaker that can crank out sound for years on end without the risk of blowing out or distorting. After being in the aftermarket car audio business for as long as we have, we’re happy to report that Alpine holds up their end of the bargain by putting out tough, reliable speakers year after year.

The overall sound quality of Alpine speakers and the budget-friendly price tag has made them a customer favorite. The Alpine S-S40, SPE-6000, and S-S65C are all great places to start if you’re looking to upgrade your speakers.

Alpine Amps

If you’re upgrading your vehicle’s speakers and stereo, then you might as well add power while you’re at it. For those that like to bump a lot of bass, you’d be wise to invest in a powerful amp that will ensure your system can handle it. Fortunately, Alpine manufactures a ton of amps that are ready-made to give your overall sound system a boost in wattage. The Alpine KTA-450 Power Pack and Alpine S-A60M are both great options that will give you the extra punch your speakers need. Both of these amps also retail for a couple hundred bucks, so they won’t break the bank when you’re upgrading.
