Alpine Electronics of America Inc. unveiled a 2018 Dodge Challenger demo car at the 2019 CES. The Challenger was supplied through a partnership with Petty’s Garage of Level Cross, North Carolina.
The Challenger is outfitted with the Petty’s Garage PG2 performance package, which includes powertrain upgrades like an Edelbrock TVS 2650 supercharger, Mopar cold air intake and a Magnaflow cat-back exhaust. Other custom features include wheels, tires, paint and badging all curated for the Challenger by Petty’s Garage.
Alpine’s R-Series Sound System
A car with the muscle and attitude of the Challenger commands an equally bold sound system, and the aftermarket Alpine R-Series products deliver, according to Alpine. The R-Series speakers and amplifiers are new for 2019 and are designed to be played loud, a seamless fit for the power of the Challenger.
A pair of R-S69C.2 6×9-inch Component Speakers are installed in the front doors, with R-S65.2 6.5-inch Coaxial Speakers in the rear. The R-W12D4 12-inch Dual 4-ohm subwoofer in the trunk provides massive bass impact. Powering the system are an R-A75M mono amplifier and two R-A60F four-channel amplifiers. The system pushes 1,550-watts.
The sound system is controlled by the new iLX-F259 Alpine Halo9 9-inch Audio/Video receiver, installed in a custom application in the dash. The iLX-F259 has a flat monitor that hovers over the dashboard and its mech-less design features AM/FM, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Bluetooth wireless technology with audio streaming.
The Alpine sound system was installed in the Challenger by Define Concepts of Orange, California. The Challenger will be used by Petty’s Garage at events throughout 2019.
