Alpine Processor Controller

DC from Birmingham on 6/19/2013

Verified employee purchase (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.

Pros: Easy install, can be mounted anywhere or placed in glovebox allowing you to maintain factory look

Cons: Software with PXAH800

Product Research



Compatibility: The Alpine RUX-C800 wired remote controller is required for programming and stand alone use of the Alpine PXA-H800 Imprint OEM Processor (500PXAH800, sold separately). The Alpine RUX-C800 provides a convenient way to adjust the PXA-H800's settings from your vehicle's driver seat.

Controls: The Alpine RUX-C800 provides full command of the PXA-H800 settings & functions. The RUX-C800 wired remote controller is equipped with a 3-way rotary knob and six push-button controls that let you adjust the Alpine PXA-H800's settings, as well as switch sources, volume control, and mute playback.

BioLite Display: The Alpine RUX-C800 in-dash controller features a BioLite display that provides detailed information regarding audio functions & settings. The BioLite display takes advantage of biochemical luminescence technology to deliver maximum visibility in daylight and provides a much wider viewing angle.

Dual Button Illumination: You can adjust the unit's button illumination between blue and red to match your vehicle's interior lighting.

Mounting Bracket: The Alpine RUX-C800 comes with a flush-mount bracket to custom install the remote controller in your vehicle's dash.

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
Building a system for sound quality and have read the reviews and dying to try this out with the Alpine/Infinity set up. I just need to get the PXA unit next! [ Jeremy  Dec 23, 2018 ]
It works very well !! [ Christine  Mar 22, 2018 ]
Better way to control Alpine pxa-h800 [ John  Feb 17, 2017 ]
To control Alpine PXA-H800. [ Jimmy  Oct 17, 2016 ]

4 questions already asked

can you use this to add bluetooth to an older system?
[ goryayo  Apr 22, 2018 ]
3 answers
Dont think this will accept bluetooth. You need an eva or fiber optical source
[ Ka Ho  Apr 22, 2018 ]
As far as I know, this is a wired remote that connects to the pxa-H800 DSP signal processor. The Bluetooth interface is a function of the head unit, not this remote or the signal processor.
[ John  Apr 22, 2018 ]
You would still need an external Bluetooth module and controller. The PXA could accept the audio and push that back to the system, but it does not have Bluetooth itself.
[ Marc  Apr 22, 2018 ]
Will this control the older H701 processor?
[ Richard  Jul 20, 2016 ]

No it only works with pax-h800 processor.
[ STEPFONZA K  Jul 21, 2016 ]
Can you adjust the crossovers, TA, and other PXA-H800 DSP settings using the RUX-C800? In other words it a replacement for using a laptop to tune the DSP? Also, is it still not compatible with Windows 7 64bit?
[ Marc  Apr 30, 2016 ]
1 answer
Yes you can make all adjustments from the controller. There is supposed to be a software update available, but I haven't updated mines yet, I'm using vista, I vary seldom hookup to my laptop so it's not an issue. As for as imprint functions I just used it once to establish a baseline for the sound signature of my vehicle, I used that to create my own tuning parameters that I stored in the 6 presets.
[ STEPFONZA K  May 01, 2016 ]
Hello Guys, I am Mannan from South doubt is using this alpine pxa-h800 and rux c800,can we use a multimedia player to play 5.1 songs from my hard disc.(pxa h800 had 2 optical it possible to connect a multimedis player to pxa and get 5.1 ?
[ Malar  Apr 20, 2014 ]

Thanks Guys......pls tell is it possible to play the 5.1 songs through alpine using media player or cant?if any other set up means pls guide me.....
[ Malar  Apr 24, 2014 ]
you must understand that the h800 does not decode a source signal. the "multimedia player" must provide a signal decoded into 5.1 channels to the h800 the pxa-h800 takes these decoded signals from a multimedia player (like my ina-w900bt), does its processing magic ( configuration, equalization, crossovers, timing, and signal strength of each) and forwards each of the 5.1 processed decoded channels to a discrete amplifier channel. The amplified channel is sent to the speakers. you cannot send an encoded bitstream to the h800 and expect the h800 to decode the bitstream into discrete signals for each channel. please download the owners manual for the unit in pdf format from the crutchfield website for study. it takes a few times of review to understand what the instructions are trying to say, but you will find that it can answer all of your questions in detail. I found it easiest to print out the manual for review and notation.
[ Claude  Apr 23, 2014 ]
Hi Malar. Yes, the PXA-0H800 will play "true" 5.1 if you have the right equipment. Yes, it will play your 5.1 music in 5.1. This is the Alpine's biggest advantage over other DSPs. However, I do not know if it will play from a hard disk unless your hard disk is integrated into your media player. But, I am 100 percent sure you can transfer your music from a hard disk and onto a USB drive or iPod. About the optical? I'm not sure. My build is all RCAs, but they are there for a reason! Contact Alpine tech support and they can confirm.
[ MARQUES  Apr 23, 2014 ]
Absolutely, I have this same setup in my altima, mainly because I wanted superb sound without losing my stock stereo. There are multiple options for this setup and hookup. I'm actually considering removing my stereo now and adding an iPad for my dash setup running sound out the headphone jack to the alpine pxa h800
