About the Alpine S-W10D4

Great bass in less space

To create great bass, you need the best in materials and engineering. Alpine's S-Series subwoofers apply technology from their higher end subs to bring you the depth and punch that'll make your tunes come alive. And to make things even better, these subs are about an inch shallower than their predecessors, making them great candidates for locations where regular high-power subs won't fit.

To create great bass, you need the best in materials and engineering. Alpine's S-Series subwoofers apply technology from their higher end subs to bring you the depth and punch that'll make your tunes come alive. And to make things even better, these subs are about an inch shallower than their predecessors, making them great candidates for locations where regular high-power subs won't fit.

Advanced materials

The S-W10D4 10" sub can handle up to 600 watts RMS, so you can drive it hard without any worries. The tough Kevlar® treated cone stays rigid under pressure, while its rubber High Amplitude Multi-Roll (HAMR) surround enables maximum excursion for impressive performance. Its dual 4-ohm voice coils allow for extra wiring flexibility, which helps if you plan on adding another subwoofer down the line. Also, it rocks in both sealed and ported boxes, so you can choose an enclosure that suits your tastes.

Features

Kevlar Reinforced Pulp Cone: This Alpine S-Series subwoofer uses a parabolic cone structure, with a Kevlar reinforced pulp cone and a Poly-Mica-Talc dust cap. Kevlar adds strength and tear resistance to the woofer cone while maintaining the benefits of a pulp cone material. The oversized, inverted dust cap increases rigidity and virtually eliminates cone distortion at extreme volume levels.

HAMRS: The woofer features a High Amplitude Multi Roll Surround (HAMRS) that allows a large linear excursion and greater SPL. The HAMRS design allows extreme excursions without sacrificing valuable cone area.

Progressive Spider: The progressive spider has reinforced layer tinsel leads to ensure reliable and consistent control of the tinsel leads and eliminate any mechanical noise or interference often seen in high excursion cone designs.

Compound Radius Curve Pole Geometry: Alpine's Patented Compound Radius Curve extended pole geometry ensures a symmetrical magnetic field, while optimizing flux density to reduce distortion and further improve power handling and output.

Dual Voice Coils: For system flexibility, the woofer has two 4Ω voice coils. When the voice coils are wired in parallel, the woofer presents a 2Ω load. When the voice coils are wired in series, the woofer presents an 8Ω load.

Spring Terminals: The spring post terminals are all located on one side of the woofer. The terminals will accept pin connectors, single banana plugs, or bare wire up to 8 gauge.

Jumpers: Included with the woofer are two voice coil terminal jumpers. These jumpers allow you to easily wire the voice coils in parallel (for a 2Ω load) or series (for an 8Ω load).

Enclosure Compatibility

Sealed Box: Alpine recommends a sealed enclosure with an internal volume between 0.45 and 0.9 cubic feet, with an ideal volume of 0.58 cubic feet. Sealed enclosures provide the most control over a woofer, will handle a lot of power, and provide accurate sonic reproduction, making them suitable to all types of music.

Ported Box Volume: The recommended ported box volume ranges from 0.8 cubic feet to 1.35 cubic feet, with the ideal size being 1.13 cubic feet, using a slot port measuring 10" (W) x 1" (H) x 17" (L).

Q
I have a sealed box to go under my seat in my Dodge Ram extended cab. What would be the best amp to pair with 2 of these?

I installed a JBL stage 3001 amplifier to power 1 sub at 2 ohms utilizing the dual voice coil option on the sub. With that power, and that configuration, it fills a small suv with plenty of tight bass response. I'm not sure what the best bet is for your car with two speakers but, if you keep the power around 300 watts each, I'm sure it will sound great!

The Alpine S-W10D4 have dual 4 ohm voice coils; therefore, I would pair them with something that can provide at least 1000 watts RMS. 500W per sub. You may consider two of the Alpine S-A60 amps which put out 600 watts RMS at 2 ohms, which is perfect for the one sub.

I am using a Rockford 1200 watt mono sub amp. Works perfectly. Plenty of headroom and a nice clean sound.

What amp should I run with this sub?

Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your subs I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system.

Q
I have a Pioneer Gm-d9705 would this sub be a good fit for the sub channel if wired at 2 ohms?
[ Alfredo  May 02, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
Yes, this would be a perfect match. The amp will output 600w rms at 2 ohm and the sub will handle 600w rms.
[ Randal  May 03, 2020 ]
Q
would the Alpine S-W10D4 S-Series 10" subwoofer with dual 4-ohm voice coils match with Planet Audio® - Pulse Series Class AB Mono 1500W Amplifier?
[ Billy  Apr 15, 2020 ]
2 answers
A
that PA amp isn't certified and won't do rated power. The alpine sub is capable with a solid amp. I used the alpine mvr-500 with the s-w10d4.
[ christopher  Apr 15, 2020 ]

I had a pair of type s running 750 cea watts and they did great
[ BRYAN  Apr 15, 2020 ]
Q
Would my alpine mvr 500 mono handle this speaker?
[ TJ  Feb 19, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
Yes, just make sure to get the dual 4-ohm version and wire it in parallel
[ Eric  Feb 19, 2020 ]
Q
what is one amplifier that can handle 3 of Alpine S-W10D4?
[ Neil  Feb 13, 2019 ]
3 answers
A
The type s is 600w rms so you're going to want around 2000w rms for 3 subs. I'm running one 10" on a 1000w @1ohm stable mtx thunder 1001.1.

Hi Neil, Delayed response, sorry about that. I did a lot of research, but am not an expert, so take this with a grain of salt. I wanted subs for my Sierra truck without compromising the rear seating. I found a custom box that fits perfectly under my rear seat, but because of the lack of space, I had to find subs that would complement my box. These Alpines were PERFECT. As for the power plant, I was given an amp for christmas. So Although the amp works great, Crutchfield does not sell that particular amp. I got lucky. If you are buying the amp from Crutchfield, you should contact them. Their support is impeccable. You have to consider so many things to build the correct solution. Box air space is key. Do you already have a box? Any way, back to your question, I dont know what you should go with, but sticking with the same manufacturer is never a bad thing. And let me say this.... These speakers are clear and hit hard. If your into long deep rock your head hip hop bass, you might want to look at kicker, but if you like the bass to be clear and responsive, these are the right ones to get! Good luck Neil!

I am currently running 2 of the s-w10d4's and I'm running them on a Memphis 1000d which runs them hard at a 1 ohm load... This amp is capable of running a 1, 2, and 4 ohm load depending on how you have your subs wired.
