Alpine Electronics Supplies Premium Branded Audio System to 2011 Dodge Vehicles

Back January 11, 2011

7.1 surround – The sound of high performance

DETROIT, (Jan. 11, 2011) – Alpine Electronics of America, Inc., the industry-leading provider of mobile media solutions, today announced it will supply premium branded audio systems for the all-new 2011 Dodge Durango and Dodge Charger, and the redesigned 2011 Dodge Journey. The three vehicles were revealed at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Alpine created two custom audio systems for Dodge including a 7.1 channel surround sound system available on the Durango and Charger, and a premium audio system available on the Charger and Journey.

Each of the 2011 Dodge Durango, Charger and Journey models feature premium speakers that have been developed to meet both Chrysler Group LLC’s and Alpine’s exacting standards. This has resulted in the use of Impregnated Polypropylene diaphragms on each vehicle, and a custom subwoofer designed specifically for the package tray of the new Dodge Charger.
