The R-W10D4 10" sub features a cone made from Kevlar® treated pulp — the same material used to make bulletproof vests — while its durable Santoprene™ surround allows for huge amounts of excursion. Alpine built this sub for bassheads who want the best of both worlds: accurate response and otherworldly thump.

Bring on the power

The R-W10D4 can handle up to 750 watts RMS, so be sure to choose a suitable amplifier as these bass monsters definitely want lots of power. Its dual oversized 4-ohm voice coils offer wiring flexibility you'll appreciate as your system changes and grows, so you can always pull maximum power from your amp. It works well in sealed and ported enclosures so you can choose what kind of bass you want to hear and feel.

Note: If you are wiring this DVC sub for lower impedance, make sure that your amp is compatible.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 560 and 1125 watts RMS at 2 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Amazing sound!

Andy from Saint Paul, MN on 8/3/2018

This sub sounds amazing! It is being powered by an Infinity K1000 amp, wired to 2ohms and getting the sub 1000w. It's in a sealed enclosure roughly .65ish cubic feet. The sound, fullness and deep rumble of this sub, all by itself, easily puts to shame systems I've seen with multiple 10's and/or 12's! I had concerns going into this that the vehicle this is in ('98 BMW M3) has a trunk so well sealed that the sub itself wouldn't cut through into the cabin. Boy was I wrong! With it powered the way it is, it sounds great inside, and with the vehicle as sealed as it is, you can hardly hear it from the outside.

Very powerful, clean sound. Sounds equally as good at high volumes and low. Very good price for a sub of that level.

Pros: Great price, high quality materials and connections

Cons: Very large magnet that may not fit into an existing box easily

Features

Kevlar Reinforced Pulp Cone: This Alpine R-Series subwoofer has a parabolic, Kevlar reinforced pulp cone. Kevlar adds strength and tear resistance to the woofer cone while maintaining the benefits of a pulp cone design. There is also an inverted polypropylene/mica/talc dust cap, which increases rigidity.

HAMRS: The woofer features a High Amplitude Multi Roll Surround (HAMRS), made of rubber, 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 pole geometry ensures a symmetrical magnetic field, while optimizing flux density to reduce distortion and further improve power handling and output.

Oversized Voice Coil: The oversized (65mm), high-temperature, 4-layer dual voice coils increase the sub's power handling.

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 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 bare wire up to 8 gauge, pin connectors, or single banana plugs.

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 Volume: The recommended sealed box volume ranges from 0.48 cubic feet to 0.93 cubic feet, with 0.58 cubic feet being the ideal size. (The volume in the manual is given as net, before accounting for the displacement of the subwoofer when installed.)

Ported Box Volume: The recommended ported box volume ranges from 1.03 cubic feet to 1.58 cubic feet. The ideal size is 1.3 cubic feet, using a slot port measuring 10" (Width) x 1" (Height) x 17" (Length). (The volume in the manual is given as net, before accounting for the displacement of the subwoofer and slot port.)

Q
What is the minimum distance from the back of the sub to the enclosure?
[ Rick  Jun 26, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
This subwoofer has a mounting depth of 5 7/8". You would want a bit of room behind the sub, so I would say a minimum of 6"
[ Calvin  Jul 03, 2019 ]  Staff
Q
For a single Alpine R-W10D4 R-Series 10" subwoofer with dual 4-ohm voice coils would the Alpine R-A75M R-Series mono subwoofer amplifier - 750 watts RMS x 1 at 2 ohms work or is that overkill? Is there another alpine amp that would work with lower watts?
[ Jared  Apr 03, 2019 ]

A
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.
[ Krissy  Apr 15, 2019 ]  Staff
Q
My existing box has a cutout of 9 5/8". Could I mount this sub in this box and be OK?
[ Scott  Feb 27, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
That Alpine requires a cutout of 9.102" and the frame of the subwoofer measures 10.72." It might be a little close but that should work OK.
[ Cosmo  Mar 05, 2019 ]  Staff
Q
What Rockford Fosgate amp would supply adequate power to power two of these subwoofers? Or does any one know of any other good amps to power two of these subs? And can one amp power both at the same time
