Alpine Processor Controller

Written By DC, Birmingham on Wednesday, June 19, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
The Alpine PXAH800 Processor is an amazing hookup! I installed this in a 2013 Nissan Altima, with a JL W6 sub, Alpine PDX V9 amp and Infinity Kappa Speakers. Very rich sound, with the pxa controller I can have immediate access to all sound settings to transform the car into a power house without losing my factory stereo. The only Hiccup I ran into was that the PXA software wouldn't run on a 64 bit PC , I wasn't told this before hand and it took several twitter posts to get a response from Alpine, but there is now an update so that a 64 bit PC will work! The amp is rated at 100x4 and 500x1. When the amp arrived its birth sheet showed a wattage of 133x4 and 566x1. I'm very pleased with Alpine Products and crutchfields tech support. I originally got 2 focal 10s and upon hearing the JL, I decided to stick with it and Crutchfield was very good about taking the focal a back. I would defiantly buy from crutchfield again. Next item on list is a new car battery to fix the headlights from dimming.
Easy install, can be mounted anywhere or placed in glovebox allowing you to maintain factory look
