Alpine Introduces the all-new Alpine Status sound system: using the same engineering and design concepts drawn from the third generation, Ultra High-Resolution Alpine F1 Status system, Alpine created “Alpine Status” to achieve High-Resolution Sound at a more approachable and accessible price point.
The Alpine Status system is also extreme flexible: all components can be purchased and used in “stand-alone” configuration.
For the audiophile that’s looking to build an ideal sound system, Alpine Status offers a wide range of Hi-Res Audio enabled speakers. The HDZ-65C 2-Way component speaker set with a high-resolution bandwidth of 55Hz – 40kHz includes a 170mm door woofer and a 70mm ring-radiator tweeter with 25mm voice coil. They also include high-end speaker x-overs.
All speaker cones are made from the same Carbon Composite material to create a unified timbre identity during playback. They get very close to the Alpine F1 Status speakers look and feel, using a very similar constructing and motor assembly, as well as the identical build-materials for highest sound quality.
The included 2-way x-over networks feature hand-selected, high-end components and offer many adjustment possibilities: you can adjust the tweeter level from +3dB, 0dB or -3dB and you can set the woofer X-Over to either 12dB/oct or 6dB/oct. The smoked acrylic cover bearing the Alpine logo can be slid-out to the front to gain access to the screw-terminals and jumpers.
If you are planning a stealthy speaker installation or simply have no space for a 7cm tweeter, there is also a Slim-Fit version of this 2-way system. It is called HDZ-65CS and includes the same woofers and network, however the included tweeter is 44mm in diameter and has a much more shallow installation depth. This makes it very easy to be installed in original tweeter locations.
