About the Alpine PSU-300CMY

Fix your factory sound

The top two complaints about the sound of a Toyota's factory audio system are not enough volume and not enough bass. Alpine's PSU-300CMY Powered System Upgrade solves both of these issues in your Toyota Camry with a neat and clever combination of products designed to bring joy to all music lovers.

Fix your factory sound

The top two complaints about the sound of a Toyota's factory audio system are not enough volume and not enough bass. Alpine's PSU-300CMY Powered System Upgrade solves both of these issues in your Toyota Camry with a neat and clever combination of products designed to bring joy to all music lovers.

The components

The package includes a compact 4-channel amplifier and a powered subwoofer, both mounted in a Toyota-specific bracket which mounts under the passenger seat and wired up using vehicle-specific harnesses. The PSU-300CMY upgrade is compatible with the factory Toyota base radio and almost all other aftermarket receivers. Alpine says you should be able to install this upgrade in your car in two hours or less.

Universal power pack

Alpine's KTP-445U Power Pack amplifier increases your radio's power output to 45 watts RMS by 4 channels, considerably more than what's put out by the Toyota radio. A universal plug lets you feed a signal via RCA outputs or speaker-level wiring. A built-in high-pass filter optimizes the sound for your speakers.

Compact powered subwoofer

Alpine's PWE-S8 powered sub uses a Class D amplifier rated at 120 watts RMS to drive the 8" shallow-mount, high-excursion subwoofer, so there's plenty of power for your bass. The amp features controls for phase, gain, and a low-pass crossover, so you'll be able to blend the bass with the rest of your system.  A wired remote control lets you adjust the bass level from the driver's seat. 

Important Note: This upgrade package won't work in a Camry with the Toyota premium amplified system.

More details on the Alpine PSU-300CMY

Product Research


Overview: Alpine's PSU-3CMY is a dedicated 300 watt sound system designed specifically for 2018 - Up Toyota Camry 4-Door models (LE, SE, XLE, XSE) not equipped with a factory JBL amplified sound system. The system includes a KTP-445U 4 x 45 watt amplifier, a PWE-S8 8" powered subwoofer, and all the wiring needed, pre-loomed and ready to install. The PSU-3CMY also includes a remote bass knob for changing the bass level from the dash.

Wiring: The PSU-3CMY system can be interfaced with a factory radio (non-amplified) or an aftermarket radio. The included T-harness interfaces the factory wiring in the dash, providing either a speaker-level signal from a factory radio or an RCA line-level signal from an aftermarket radio, to feed to the Alpine KTP-445U amplifier. The T-harness also feeds the amplified return signal back into the factory wiring and out to each of the speakers, utilizing the factory speaker wires. The provided wiring includes a 10 ga. power wire, with inline fuse holder, that gets run to the battery, providing power for both the 4-channel amp and the PWE-S8 subwoofer.

Mounting: Alpine provides pre-attached brackets that are designed specifically to mount both the KTP-445U amp and the PWE-S8 subwoofer underneath the passenger front seat. This means no usable space in the vehicle is taken up by the sound system.

KTP-445U: The Alpine KTP-445U Head Unit Power Pack is a power upgrade amplifier that allows you to add higher output and more dynamic response to your aftermarket or factory installed car stereo system (without factory amplifiers). The Power Pack employs a 45 watt x 4 channel amplifier with an unbelievably low noise floor, taking extra care to ensure a clean signal path, with no extraneous interference. The end result is a 1 Watt Signal-to-Noise Ratio of 82dB or better. Uniquely, the amplifier distortion actually decreases at higher frequencies, resulting in a clean and clear signal where your ear is most sensitive to distortion (< 0.03% THD+N @ 1W; 1% THD+N @ rated power). The Alpine KTP-445U Head Unit Power Pack provides independent controls for the Front & Rear inputs.

  • Front & Rear Gains: The Power Pack provides simple variable gain controls (speaker level: 0.5-10V, low-level: 0.2-4V) for flexibility and a wide variety of system applications.
  • Front & Rear HPF: High-Pass selectable switches for the amplifier's Front & Rear inputs allow frequency filtering for a wide variety of speakers. Choose "Full-Range" or a selectable range (60Hz, 80Hz, 120Hz) to fine-tune your crossover points (-12dB/oct.).
  • Configurable Inputs: On the bottom panel of the Power Pack there are selectable input options to accommodate Speaker-Level (0.5V-10V) or RCA (0.2V-4V) inputs.
  • 4Ch/2Ch Modes: Selectable 2-Channel & 4-Channel options give you the control to determine source inputs, and can eliminate the need for Y-adapters.

PWE-S8: The Alpine PWE-S8 is a compact self-amplified subwoofer with pre-installed brackets that allow it to fit underneath the passenger's front seat, keeping it out of sight. The PWE-S8 includes a built-in 120 watt Class D amp along with an 8" high-excursion subwoofer. It can accept either line- or speaker-level inputs and features an Auto Turn-on circuit that will activate the amp when it senses a signal on the speaker-level inputs. An included wired remote lets you easily adjust the bass level from the front seating area. The control can be mounted under a dash panel and gives you a level range from 0 to -20 dB, relative to the gain setting on the amplifier. Controls on the subwoofer include:

  • Gain: Can vary the input level from 0.2 - 4.0 volts line-level and 0.5 - 10 volts speaker-level.
  • Low Pass Filter: Rotary control that can set the filter cutoff between 50 - 150 Hz.
  • Phase: Switches between 0˚ and 180˚.
  • Power Mode: Switches between SP IN (speaker-level input) and REM (wired remote input).

Customer Q&A

4 questions already asked

Does this fit a 2021 Camry XSE hybrid? The battery is located in the trunk. The passenger seat is powered.
[ Clinton  Aug 21, 2021 ]
1 answer
It fits and is compatible with the base model systems that come in your Camry (7" LCD screen on the radio and no JBL sound system).
[ Paul  Aug 24, 2021 ]  Staff
Does this help flatten or improve the factory eq at all or does it simply amplify what it's given?
[ Scott  Jul 23, 2021 ]
1 answer
Amplifies what's given. Choose your component speakers based on the sound you want to make
[ Tom  Jul 23, 2021 ]
So you have to run a power wire from the battery to the unit?
[ Mark  Oct 07, 2020 ]
1 answer
Yes, I ran the fused power line from the unit to the positive battery terminal. Had to make a small puncture in a firewall grommet around the glovebox area.
[ Kyle  Oct 07, 2020 ]
Why wont this work with a 2017 camry?
[ Timothy  Mar 10, 2019 ]
1 answer
It's made to mount and fit within the available space under the front passenger's seat in the 2018 and newer models. You can view the owner's/installation manual by clicking the link for it under the "What's in the Box" heading on it's main webpage.
