Alpine Electronics Now Shipping the Turn1™ Waterproof Bluetooth® Speaker

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (Jan. 21, 2021) – Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. is now shipping the Turn1™ Waterproof Bluetooth® Speaker. The Turn1™ is tuned for open-air adventures outside the vehicle.
Tuned for Adventure
Adventure doesn’t stop at the drive, and that’s why Alpine introduces a new portable music experience with the Turn1™. With two midrange speakers, two tweeters, and two external passive radiators, the Turn1™ provides a stereo sound performance that can produce up to 40-watts of powerful sound. The speaker is waterproof and tuned to be played outside, so even in open-air, with wind or other noise, the music still comes through clear.
Music on Demand
The Turn1™ has a 33-foot working distance and over 12 hours of playtime to keep up with any adventure. The multi-unit pairing function connects up to two Turn1™ speakers when more sound is desired. A built-in mic offers hand-free calling functionality. When it comes time to charge the Turn1™, a micro-USB to USB charge is available for convenient and quick charging (between 4 – 6 hours) from a vehicle or home. The auto power-off feature ensures efficient use of the battery.
Transporting the Turn1™ speaker is easy with the included 3-foot carry strap. A separate package is available that includes a Turn1™ Portable Bluetooth Speaker and a universal mounting bracket designed to attach to the inside bars of select Jeep® Wranglers and Side x Side Solutions. The cast metal bracket is designed with a foam backing to ensure protection from scratches on the vehicle when in use. Easily remove the speaker from the quick-release straps on the brackets and throw the carry strap over your shoulder for on-the-go listening. The Turn1™ and the Turn1™ mounting bracket package are now shipping at a MAP of $199.95 and $249.95, respectively, and will be available to purchase directly on or at Alpine Authorized retailers.
