Our take on the Alpine PWD-CB1 by Crutchfield's Alexander Hrabe
Party in a box
It was only a matter of time. Where there's good, loud music, there's often a party — Alpine just wrapped it all up into one kick-butt cooler. On land or at sea, in a stadium parking lot or on the patio, Alpine's PWD-CB1 In-Cooler Entertainment system (ICE, for short) will be the life of the party, without a doubt.
Easy to use
An illuminated control panel and big volume up/down buttons make it easy to use at night, and Alpine couldn't have made things simpler as far as music sources go. I was able to pair my smartphone via Bluetooth® within seconds of firing up the ICE system, but Alpine also includes a 3.5mm aux line in for wired options like gameday radio broadcasts. And if you want to create the ultimate tailgating experience, Alpine gives you a line output so that you can connect multiple ICEs to one source.
The power it's packin'
To power your ICE, you'll use the included AC power cable or the 16-foot vehicle power cable that plugs into your car's or truck's power source. Depending on the rating of your vehicle's power port, Alpine gives you a selectable 10- or 15-amp power modes, and here's one my favorite features — Alpine's vehicle battery monitoring system warns you before your battery gets too low to start up your vehicle. Once your ICE is powered and paired, the built-in amp delivers 90 watts RMS per channel to drive a pair of 5-1/4" component speakers and 4"x8" passive radiators. So, you'll have plenty of power to rock the great outdoors.
You know you can count on Alpine for solid sound, but what about cooler construction? To ensure quality across the board, Alpine has partnered with Grizzly Coolers to ensure the ICE stands the test of time and heavy use. This 56-quart cooler boasts a heavy-duty, water-resistant (IPX5 rating) construction with extremely tough handles and hinges, along with a 2" rear plug for draining melted ice. The handles are nylon rope encased in rubber sleeve grips so hauling this cooler isn't hard on your hands. Now, for the most important spec of all... Alpine's PWD-CB1 In-Cooler Entertainment system holds 72 twelve-ounce cans. That's a whole lotta party in one cool place.
