Alpine X-Premium

Alpine took out a 2018 Sound+Image Award with its one of its X-Series speaker splits — and ow the company has extended the X-Series performance to new high-res heights with an all-new X-Premium series, which it says are “among the finest speakers ever crafted by Alpine”.

New materials are key to the X-Premium range, with new carbon-graphite tweeters promising high frequency range extension to 66kHz, making them ideal for reproducing high-res audio files such as 24-bit/96kHz and beyond, while the nano-fibre woofer diaphragms Alpine says maintain high clarity and realistic sound while delivering extremely fast response speeds and dynamics. The diaphragms are now secured with a concertina-like double-gazed edge rather than a traditional roll surround, allowing lower distortion under high inputs, and the radial ring magnets have evolved from conventional neodymium magnets to ultra-high-density neodymium, providing more powerful and efficient magnetics to govern the voice coils.

There is also a newly designed X-Premium Sound crossover network that promises smooth distribution of frequencies between the components.
