About the Alpine SWT-10S2

Right size, right sound

Here's a big bass breakthrough for truck lovers. Alpine engineered their SWT-10S2 10" subwoofer to go behind your seat, and sound especially good in the limited space of a truck cab.This deep-sounding, high-performance sub works well in shallow enclosures that'll fit behind or under the seat in your truck. A "high amplitude" surround allows more cone travel than a regular sub, so the SWT-10S2 can push more air and play louder.

Right size, right sound

Here's a big bass breakthrough for truck lovers. Alpine engineered their SWT-10S2 10" subwoofer to go behind your seat, and sound especially good in the limited space of a truck cab.This deep-sounding, high-performance sub works well in shallow enclosures that'll fit behind or under the seat in your truck. A "high amplitude" surround allows more cone travel than a regular sub, so the SWT-10S2 can push more air and play louder.

Airflow ensured

Subs get hot as they play, and the heat usually gets vented away via a port in the back of the sub's pole piece. Alpine recessed the pole port and added cooling air vents on the sides of the frame, allowing you to use an enclosure with an inside clearance of as little as 4-3/16" without blocking critical air flow. An SWT-10S2 will work well in either a ported or a sealed box, so you can get your favorite kind of bass tone, boomy or tight.

The power it takes

This single voice coil, 2-ohm sub will draw maximum power from most subwoofer amplifiers. For top performance, you'll want to pick an amp that delivers between 300 and 500 watts RMS at 2 ohms.

Product Research

Features

HAMR Surround: The High-Amplitude Multi Roll (HAMR) Surround Design allows for extreme excursions without sacrificing valuable cone area.

Speaker Terminals: The spring post terminals will accommodate single banana plugs or bare wire up to 8-gauge.

Gasket Cover: Alpine uses a Concealed Mount Gasket System to cover the mounting screws for a clean look. The black rubber gasket ring comes already installed on the woofer and needs to be removed before drilling the mounting screws (not supplied). The gasket ring then snaps back into place once the woofer is mounted.

Recommended Sealed Box Volume: The recommended sealed box sizes range from 0.35 ft³ to 0.82 ft³. Within this range, the ideal size is 0.47 ft³.

Recommended Vented Box Volume: The recommended vented box sizes range from 0.75 ft³ to 1.27 ft³. Within this range, the ideal size is 1.24 ft³. A slot port with the following dimensions should be used: 10" (wide) x 1" (tall) x 20" (long).

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
BECAUSE OF SPACE NEEDED SHALLOW SUB [ JEFF  Jan 28, 2020 ]
A
Alpine, simple set up, complex musical frequencey. The best of both worlds. Whether you listen to calssical, rock, rap, hip-hop, heavy bass, or just listening to relaxing music, make simple adjustments. Easy with the Alpine Amplifer for quick adjustments. [ Nicholas  Dec 07, 2019 ]
A
buy one get second half off [ michael  Jul 12, 2018 ]
A
My last sub was an Alpine and sounded great! This one has the shallower mounting depth I need for my new enclosure. [ Michel  Jul 16, 2017 ]

Q
Is the shallow mount that much shorter than the Type S 10s?? Would love to see a pic of them standing up next to each other so I can visually see the difference
[ Cutter  Jun 21, 2020 ]

A
I don't know the answer but it would be easy enough to search dimensions for each speaker and compare the difference.
[ Mark  Jun 22, 2020 ]
A
No pics and no, theres isnt much of a difference in mounting depth. Less than 1/2 inch difference between the type s and truck "shallow" sub.
[ JOSHUA  Jun 22, 2020 ]
Q
How will this subwoofer perform in an van? I would put it in a sealed box according the recommended specs. That means, instead of a small cabin, the woofer would play in a spacious area.
[ splash  Jul 08, 2018 ]

A
Alpine's SWT-10S2 subwoofer can still work just fine in a van. It's described as a "truck" subwoofer mostly due to its shallow mounting depth which allows it to fit more easily into trucks than other subs; but it will still perform well in other vehicle types as well. For more details or to discuss further, please feel free to contact an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. Thanks!

Q
With it being 300W RMS and I'm running two of them. What would be the ideal amp?
[ Ryan  May 29, 2017 ]

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.

Q
I see the speaker depth is about 4.2". With the internal venting exiting the rear center of the magnet, is any additional depth required to let this driver perform properly?
[ Guest  Oct 20, 2016 ]

A
There is no mention on the included spec sheet how much is minimum. What's not easy to see is the face of the magnet has indented vent channels from the giant voice coil vent, across the magnet to the outside. I've been cranking bass enhanced music with mine responsibly with 700w RMS in a 1.3'cu port tuned to 28Hz, for well over a year now. I'd recommend the ported box or the largest recommended sealed box. I found that in sealed volumes, the -3db frequency is just too high to me (50+Hz compared to 30Hz for the ported -3). My opinion is the ported enclosure allows the driver to perform properly with minimal ventilation.
[ Paul  Oct 26, 2016 ]
A
Michael is right. As long as you can fit the subwoofer without it bottoming out in the box, then it will work. There is not requirement for extra depth beyond what is needed for the subwoofer to physically fit. HTH! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101

I Have 2 in a custom truck box for my 08 ram and it very shallow but they perform great they wont need any extra space.
