About the Alpine SWS-1041

Bass, price, and performance — they're all hallmarks of Alpine Type-S subwoofers.

Bass, price, and performance — they're all hallmarks of Alpine Type-S subwoofers.

Housed in a non-resonant stamped steel frame, the SWS-1041 10" subwoofer is a great way to bring out the lows your existing system simply can't reproduce. You'll find that the Kevlar®-treated pulp woofer cone hits quickly, but is rigid enough to stand up to the demands of hard play. A high excursion, 3/4" Santoprene rubber surround provides maximum cone travel, while an extended spider landing area provides extra excursion for full bass.

You'll enjoy distortion-free sound, thanks to a heat transfer plate that limits built-up heat. The tinsel leads are built directly into the tear-resistant, dual progressive Nomex spiders for long-term reliability. A motor structure and patent-pending magnetic circuit help you understand why Alpine is a leader in great-performing subs!

The SWS-1041 is designed for use in sealed or ported enclosures.

Product Research


Manual Corrections


Kevlar Reinforced Pulp Cone: This Alpine Type-S subwoofer has a 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 oversized inverted dust cap of the same material, which increases rigidity and virtually eliminates distortion at extreme volume levels.

Santoprene Rubber Surround: The high-excursion 3/4" Santoprene rubber surround is durable and resistant to the elements, resulting in a very reliable performance. The surround is specially designed to resist deformation that is common in most woofers with wide surrounds. This design gives the surround more control over the woofer cone to reduce distortion and possible driver failure.

Dual Progressive Nomex Spiders: This subwoofer has dual progressive Nomex spiders for added stability and mechanical durability. The custom progressive rolls gives the woofer a longer, more linear stroke with maximum centering and restoring force. Special edge control design and Nomex construction provide excellent tear resistance, strength and long-term reliability. The tinsel speaker leads are integrated into the top spider.

Heavy Gauge Steel Basket: The frame is custom stamped from heavy gauge steel for maximum strength.

Heat Transfer Plate: This subwoofer contains a heat transfer plate that is thermally coupled to the voice coil. This plate pulls heat away from the voice coil, achieving up to 10% additional power handling, and better reliability.

Bumped Back Plate and Extended Vented Pole Piece: This woofer combines a bumped back plate and an extended pole piece, giving it a nearly 2" peak-to-peak cone excursion. This extra long cone movement provides a higher bass output. The vents and dual flared design of the pole piece maximize airflow around the voice coil, giving it a more reliable performance.

Spring Posts: The woofer has one pair of spring posts which will accept pin connectors and up to 8 gauge bare wire.


Recommended Sealed Box Volume: The sealed box sizes recommended by Alpine range from 0.65 cu/ft to 1.25 cu/ft. Within this range, the ideal size recommended by Alpine is 1.0 cu/ft, so this is the enclosure recommended by Crutchfield.

Recommended Vented Box Volume: The vented box sizes recommended by Alpine range from 1.0 cu/ft to 1.75 cu/ft. No port sizes are listed by the manufacturer.

Manual Corrections

Frequency Response: The manual lists the frequency response as "Fs-1kHz" (Fs=Free Air Resonance frequency). According to Alpine, the actual frequency response is 30Hz-1kHz.

Recommended Enclosures: The manual only lists the recommended sealed box volume range. The vented box volume recommendations were obtained directly from Alpine.
