Alpine CDE-170

Alpine CDE-170


Solid Alpine sound

Alpine's CDE-170 CD receiver offers classic looks and inspiring Alpine sound. And thanks to Alpine's Bass Engine SQ, you can dial in a variety of EQ, sub level, and crossover settings with the push of a button — a great way to get your groove on when you're heading down the road. You can get your Android™ involved by plugging into the handy front-panel USB port. (Note: this receiver does not include Bluetooth or iPhone® compatibility. If you want hands-free calling, music streaming, and iOS compatbility, check out Alpine's CDE-172BT CD receiver.)

Sound options

For more music, you can also plug in a USB drive loaded with MP3, WMA, and FLAC files, and you'll find an auxiliary input for other sources, too. And, of course, you can slip in a store-bought or recordable CD in the front panel slot. When you've got time to do some fine-tuning, you'll appreciate the options offered by the 3-band parametric equalizer and its 11 preset tone curves. Two sets of preamp outputs let you hook up amplifiers for additional power for your system. This receiver also works with Alpine's Power Pack, a compact 4-channel power amp that plugs right into your Alpine receiver's wire harness and sends 45 watts RMS to each of your front and rear speakers.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?

In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls.
