Enjoy the most accurate sound reproduction ever – IMPRINT Sound. From the artist, direct to you. Nothing in between. All your music, just as the artist intended. Let the show begin.

MULTEQ SOUND ENHANCEMENT

IMPRINT uses MultEQ technology for improved sound imaging and quality in all seats and for all types of music. It overcomes the two main factors that degrade in-car sound: various materials in the cabin distort frequency response, and the time domain problems caused by the fact that the speakers are not located at equal distances from the listeners. By eliminating these types of acoustic distortion, MultEQ provides a seamless, enveloping soundstage for experiencing music as it was originally recorded.

  • IMPRINT maximises the listening experience by eliminating acoustic problems using MultEQ.
  • Professional-quality sound tuning out of the box with guaranteed results every time.
  • Everyone in the vehicle hears the music as the artist intended it to be heard due to ideal tonal balance and a precisely aligned soundstage.

EXPERIENCE MUSIC THE WAY THE ARTIST INTENDED

Endless hours of rehearsal, countless recordings and all-night mixing sessions. Every artist has a vision, and works hard to perfect it. But can we really get to hear it that way? With IMPRINT Sound, the answer is finally: Yes!

ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY FOR ULTIMATE SOUND QUALITY

Experience music inside the car like never before. Alpine has combined their in-vehicle sound system experience with Audyssey’s acoustical technology into one unprecedented component – including 24-Bit DAC, digital time correction and selectable crossover frequencies.

THE SONIC MAGIC OF MULTEQ

AUDYSSEY MULTEQ XT

The car interior is an acoustical challenge. Interior surfaces reflect sound while other surfaces absorb it. IMPRINT Sound overcomes the car’s inherent acoustical challenges, but also improves the sound stage, tonal balance and definition. MultEQ solves all this by using more than 500 correction points along the frequency spectrum. This optimises the sound reproduction to the specific vehicle listening environment with much greater precision than has been achieved up to now – reproducing the music as it was meant to be heard throughout the car.

TWO BRILLIANT WAYS TO GET FULL IMPRINT SOUND

PXE-H650 TURNS ANY FACTORY SYSTEM INTO AN ALPINE POWERHOUSE

Keep your current factory entertainment system, and still get the full sound and advanced features of our very best components. This ideal upgrade solution provides the sophisticated processing of MultEQ which automatically corrects the signal for the best possible sound. It also gives you a full seven preouts (for additional amps and speakers), plus multiple auxiliary inputs for adding more sources.

STATE-OF-THE-ART CDA-9887 WITH MULTEQ PROCESSING

The MultEQ processing built into this unit automatically corrects acoustical distortions in the car, reproducing music with an accuracy and clarity you’ve never experienced before. The unit also has high-end sound enhancing features such as 6-channel digital time correction, parametric and graphic EQ, adjustable crossover and 24-Bit DAC.

WIDE DYNAMICS, FULL POWER, REMARKABLE CLARITY
– FOR TRUE IMPRINT SOUND SMALL IN SIZE,
HUGE IN POWER AND PERFORMANCE

The ultra-compact PDX series amps fit virtually anywhere in your vehicle. They’re stackable. Each of the PDX amps delivers enormous power, wide dynamic range, plus exceptionally high fidelity and performance to deliver true IMPRINT Sound.

STATE-OF-THE-ART TYPE-X SPEAKERS AND SUBWOOFERS

To experience the full potential of IMPRINT Sound, you’ll need an uncommonly high-quality speaker system – and Alpine’s Type-X series are ready to deliver. Unrivaled quality and maximum performance.

MultEQ analyses problems in cabin acoustic response and creates a precise inverse fi lter that cancels out the frequency peaks and dips, resulting in ideally linear response.

MultEQ also corrects for time domain problems. The graph on the right shows that the ringing has been greatly surpressed, what results in much clearer sound reproduction.

MULTEQ CALIBRATION

MultEQ allows dealers to achieve professional sound tuning in any vehicle in just minutes, resulting in audio reproduction on a level with that heard in the very best listening rooms. It uses FIR fi lters that have virtually no ringing to apply equalisation at more than 500 points along the frequency spectrum. It also sets the optimum crossover points, so it does everything for you. Watch how impressed the customer will be as you calibrate his vehicle using your PC (requires KTX-100EQ).
