The ILX-W650 has a simple swipe interface with an ultra-shallow chassis that can mount to the KTA-450 Power Pack Amplifier, creating Alpine’s award-winning PowerStack application.
Simple to Use
The new swipe control interface is designed for easy use, so you can keep your eyes on the road. A two-finger swipe motion moving up, down, left, or right will control volume up or down and track skip forward or back. The two-finger swipe can be done anywhere on the touch screen, so you don’t need to swipe on a specific location.
Just the Technology You Need
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto give you access to popular apps such as Waze, Spotify, and Amazon Music
The ILX-W650 “Works with Apple CarPlay” and lets iPhone users make and receive calls, access text messages, play music, and get directions in a way that allows them to stay focused on the road. Apple CarPlay is accessed through the capacitive touch screen or the mic button to activate Siri voice control and is compatible with iPhone 5 and later (iPhone must be connected via Apple lightning cable).
The ILX-W650 includes Android Auto and works with the Google Assistant (requires both a USB cable and Bluetooth connection; requires an Android phone running 5.0 [Lollipop] or higher and the Android Auto app). To access the Google Assistant on Android Auto, say "OK Google" or select the mic button. Google Assistant in Android Auto allows users to play their favorite music, get driving directions to their destination, interact with smart home devices and reply to text messages – hands free.
Shallow Design with PowerStack Compatibility
The ILX-W650's shallow chassis is only 2.4" deep, so it fits into vehicles that don't have a lot if depth behind the dashboard. This shallow design makes the ILX-W60 the perfect complement with the KTA-450 PowerPack Ampifier(sold separately). The amplifier measures just 7" W x 3.5" H x 1.25" D and fits in the open space behind the ILX-W650 using the included bracket, creating the PowerStack design. The total combined depth of the ILX-W650, KTA-450 and the mounting bracket is still less than the depth of a standard double-DIN chassis. The KTA-450 features Alpine's exclusive amplifier technology, Dynamic Peak Power (DPP), which produces 400 watts DPP without the bulk and hassle of a traditional amplifier.
