Overview

Our take on the Alpine SWT-10S4

Here's a big bass breakthrough for truck lovers. Alpine engineered their SWT-10S4 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-10S4 can push more air and play louder.

Right size, right sound

Here's a big bass breakthrough for truck lovers. Alpine engineered their SWT-10S4 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-10S4 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-10S4 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

For top performance, you'll want to pick an amplifier that delivers between 300 and 500 watts RMS at 4 ohms. This single voice coil, 4-ohm sub will draw the maximum output power from a subwoofer amplifier when used along with a second SWT-10S4 in a system. If you're planning on running a pair, look for an amp that delivers between 600 and 1000 watts RMS at 2 ohms.

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).

Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp/sub combo 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 and help you make the best choice for your system. [ Kenny  Mar 15, 2017 ]  Staff
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: 600 watts RMS is a little less than they can handle, but it would still be within a safe power range for them. We recommend hitting at least 70% of the recommended RMS range, and 600 watts is well within that range. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  Feb 10, 2015 ]  Staff
