About the Alpine W10S4

Holding down the BassLine

If you're a car sound enthusiast, you understand the importance of bass. Alpine shares that view, and they've created the BassLine Series subwoofers to give you the low-frequency punch you need to create a well-balanced system. You won't just hear the bottom end, you'll feel it. And best of all, Alpine's made these subs affordable so you can fill your vehicle with bass without emptying your savings account.

Built solid

Alpine's BassLine W10S4 10" sub is built around a polypropylene/mica cone that stays stiff at high volume levels to avoid distortion. The poly-foam surround and tough steel frame give the cone the support it needs to pump out the volume. This sub handles up to 250 watts RMS and its 4-ohm impedance makes it a great match for most amplifiers.  

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 200 and 375 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Two-Piece Yoke: The two-piece yoke uses a vented pole to provide improved air flow and help cool the voice coil.

These subs have good reviews all over the internet. I am not looking for top of the line components that will make my hair stand up or shatter my windows. I want some good bass subs from a reputable company that will sound good without breaking the bank. I think I found them! [ Erik  Dec 12, 2017 ]

Are you powering just one or several? I personally have two wired in parallel with an Infinity Kappa K600 amplifier and have been very pleased with no problems.
[ Keith  Jul 11, 2018 ]

I am driving two of these subs with an MRV-M1200 but really any decent quality amp should work, it's not so much the RMS power but how you set up the system gain, crossover, etc. And don't go cheap on the box, that is more important than how much power you have, a watt is a watt frankly but a crappy box not only sounds bad it can kill your sub quickly. I went with the Alpine recommended slot-ported enclosure but BEWARE and double check the specs. I am not making this up! Alpine published the wrong port length and I caught the error (should be 9" long) let them know about it and they wrote back to me but I do not know how they can let others know this unless consumers ask. I've got subs from 8" to 18" with 100 to 5,000 watts and I can say for sure the W10S4 is probably the best value on the market now. Good luck! Cheers, Scott

I'm using a Kicker CX 600.1 in a Honda Accord, and I'm more then satisfied. The Alpine have a great, rich, deep sound.
