Torrance, Calif. (Jan. 9, 2018) – Looking to fulfill consumer requests for a large screen aftermarket system that doesn’t require custom installation, Alpine Electronics today launched the iLX-F309, an in-dash system that brings the 9-inch screen size to a variety of vehicles, the 2018 International CES taking place Jan. 9-12 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

“Alpine blazed the trail with the first vehicle-specific 9-inch systems back in 2014, targeted to trucks and SUVs, but consumers have continued to request a model that will fit into a variety of vehicles,” said Mike Anderson, vice president and general manager, aftermarket business unit, Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. “The iLX-F309 represents a new step as it brings the 9-inch screen into a number of vehicles without the need for custom installation.”

The iLX-F309 is an AM/FM/audio/video receiver with a 9-inch WVGA touch screen and mech-less design (no CD/DVD slot). It uses a 1-DIN chassis for installation but the screen “hovers” in front of the vehicle’s dash, allowing the oversize screen to be added to a variety of vehicles without the need for custom installation. The iLX-F309’s “HALO9” nickname is descriptive for the screen’s unique hovering position and its 9-inch size.

Alpine continues to be the only major aftermarket manufacturer to offer complete systems that are larger than the standard 6.1 or 7-inch screens. Up to this point, Alpine’s 9 and 10-inch models were vehicle-specific and required special dash bezels to not disrupt the layout or electronics of the vehicle’s dashboard. The introduction of the iLX-F309 HALO9 and its hovering screen now brings the 9-inch form factor into many more vehicles.

Installation Fitment:
The 9-inch screen is attached to an adjustable mount connected to a 1-DIN chassis. Once installed, the screen and mount are fixed to the chassis for a sturdy installation. The screen hovers over or in front of the dash while its rear housing tapers off cleanly at the edges for a thin and modern silhouette. At its default position, the screen’s sliding mount is pushed out, sitting at a 90-degree angle and the bottom of the screen is centered with the 1-DIN chassis. At this point, the screen can be angled at select positions to assist during installation, help with visibility, or move it away from other items on the dashboard. The screen can be positioned 20 millimeters (mm) back from its default position, to move it closer to the dashboard. It can be moved up or down 30mm from its default position and can be tilted up or down at a maximum of 45-degrees, depending on the position of the up/down location.

Entertainment Features:
The iLX-F309 has a suite of entertainment features. Its mech-less design is suited for smartphone compatibility through Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ with the Google Assistant. Maps, music, messages and phone calls from the iPhone® or Android™ phone are controlled from and displayed on the iLX-F309’s touch screen. The iLX-F309 also has Bluetooth® wireless technology with audio streaming, a built-in HD Radio™ tuner, and is SiriusXM™ Ready (requires SiriusXM SXV300 Connect Vehicle Tuner Kit, sold separately, and SiriusXM subscription). There is a USB port for video or audio playback (FLAC [Free Lossless Audio Codec], MP3, WMA and AAC), an AUX input, and an HDMI input. A second HDMI input can be added via the KCX-630HD HDMI Selector (sold separately). A CD/DVD player can also be added via the DVE-5300 CD/DVD player (sold separately). Select factory features are retained and vehicle information is displayed when used with the iDatalink® Maestro module (sold separately, retained features and vehicle information vary by vehicle).

System Expansion:
The iLX-F309 has a rear camera input and overlays guidelines onto the camera image on the 9-inch screen to aid with distance judging (camera sold separately). Multiple cameras (for the rear and side) can be added when used through the KCX-C250MC Multi-Camera Switcher (sold separately). Electrical accessories like a light bar or motorized tonneau cover can be controlled by the iLX-F309’s touch screen when connected to the KAC-001 External Accessory Controller (sold separately),

Next Level Custom Audio Regal Boat

A customer recently brought in their 2015 Regal 2800 into our shop to have new speakers, LED and SeaDek floor surface installed. We give an ultra fast turnaround on installation and the customer was very excited on how clean the installation was of all the products.

The 2800 model comes with The FasTrac Hull that gives you more control on the water, with up to 26% faster speeds, and at the fuel pump, with up to 30% better fuel efficiency. The boat comes with a FUSION UD750 MARINE STEREO. The Fusion radio has full integration for your smart phone, which can be enclosed in a waterproof uni-dock, and has AM/FM radio capabilities. But the original speakers weren’t enough sound for the customer. We told him that WetSounds just released the new Revo 6″and 8″ speakers and that he could choose from a complete line of grills. We added 2 amps as well to power all of the new speakers.

Stingray Boat Custom Detail, Seadek, and Stereo System

Boat Detail Orlando

This Stingray boat was brought in to us to have new speakers and head unit, Seadek surface installed, and a professional detail. To install Seadek Non-Skid surface, we have to scan the entire boat with a special machine that is here at our shop. Then we go to the computer that puts the measurements into the software to have another machine custom CNC cut the surface padding to the dimensions previously measured. The Stingray text is also CNC’d along with the customers desired pattern. The boat was professionally detailed from head to toe, including all of the salt water barnicles on the boat. Once the cleaning was done, we carefully install the padding surface like a puzzle.

Once Seadek, the Kicker KMC10, and 6 new Kicker speakers were installed, we had a the detailer clean and buff the boat one more time to bring color back and remove scuffs for the customer.
