The 3-in-1 Design Includes a Brake Light and Reverse Light

Torrance, Calif. (August 25, 2016) – Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. has expanded its lineup of Jeep Wrangler products with the introduction of the HCE-TCAM1-WRA rear view camera system, which is now shipping. The HCE-TCAM1-WRA is compatible with the 2007-Up Jeep Wrangler JK and is the company’s second camera system developed for a specific vehicle.

“JK owners rely on rear view camera systems for daily driving and off-road adventures, so the HCE-TCAM1-WRA was designed to address these uses,” said Steve Crawford, vice president and general manager, aftermarket business unit, Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. “The system conveniently installs onto the spare tire mount for an integrated look, yet is rugged enough for off-road use.”

The HCE-TCAM1-WRA was developed with the JK owner in mind. The 3-in-1 design incorporates a rear view camera, LED third brake light, and LED reverse light in a 7-inch round housing. The housing has a matte black finish with gun metal gray powder coat accents and attaches to the spare tire mount. The third brake light is 2-inches tall and stretches across the middle of the unit. The reverse light is not only helpful when backing up, but also illuminates the camera’s viewing angle in low light situations. A removable rubber cap with a debossed Alpine logo covers the wheel lock in the center of the unit.

The HCE-TCAM1-WRA projects a color rear view image onto the in-dash screen. Installation is plug-and-play when used with one of Alpine’s three 9-inch Restyle dash systems for the Jeep Wrangler (X109-WRA, X009-WRA, i109-WRA; all sold separately). The HCE-TCAM1-WRA is also compatible with screens made by other aftermarket manufacturers, or will work with a factory in-dash screen (connection to a factory screen requires dealer programming and a third party adapter, sold separately).

A Camera Suited for JK Adventures
The HCE-TCAM1-WRA’s rear view camera is waterproof and dust proof with an IP66 rating (universal standards set for International Protection Marking of products), so it’s ready for off-road challenges like heavy dust and water crossings. The camera is angled to provide visibility for both near and far objects behind the JK.

Smart Installation
The HCE-TCAM1-WRA attaches to the JK’s spare tire mount and is fixed using the OEM lug nut or an optional aftermarket wheel lock. It is compatible with most factory and aftermarket wheels and comes with three mounting posts of varying lengths, allowing the user to choose a post that fits the depth of the spare wheel.

Availability
The HCE-TCAM1-WRA is available now for $450 SRI, visit www.alpine-usa.com for a store locator. The system will be on display at the Alpine booth at the Ocean City Jeep Week, a consumer event taking place August 25-27, 2016 in Ocean City, MD.

The Company’s 2019 Focus on This Channel Kicks-Off at the Long Beach KnowledgeFest

Torrance, Calif. (Feb. 12, 2019) -- Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. has announced activities in support of its 12-volt independent retailers. Alpine’s Brand Business Unit is responsible for the company’s aftermarket sales and has made heavy investments towards supporting its independent retailers.

“We value our independent retailers and applaud them for their passion and dedication to the 12-volt industry,” said Mike Anderson, Vice President and General Manager, Brand Business Unit, Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. “The addition of new employees, demo vehicles, and in-store displays represent a significant investment into this channel, and we look forward to using these assets to partner with our retailers to help them grow their Alpine business.”

Investment in People, Vehicles, and Displays

Since 2018, Alpine has hired eight new employees in the Brand Business Unit’s Sales department. All eight positions are newly-created, field jobs that had not previously existed within the company. The positions include one District Sales Manager and seven Brand Specialists who strictly service 12-volt independent retailers with product, sales, and marketing support. 

The Brand Specialists oversee six Alpine-owned demo trucks located across the U.S. The vehicles consist of a Ford F-150®, Ram® 1500, Chevy Silverado®, and a Toyota Tundra®, Tacoma®, and 4Runner®. The first three trucks debuted in early 2018, and the three Toyota vehicles were completed last month and are on the road now. All trucks feature the Alpine Halo9 iLX-F309 9-inch AV receiver with a complete X-Series sound system and are outfitted in a distinctive “Alpine X-Perience” custom vinyl wrap. Alpine has launched an aggressive dealer event schedule for 2019 totaling 200 events of all sizes, and the demo trucks will be featured at many of these events.

Alpine has also implemented an in-store display program. In 2018, 110 displays were distributed to 12-volt independent retailers across the U.S. This year, 50 more displays will be sent to additional retailers. The free-standing displays showcase the Alpine Halo9 iLX-F309 or iLX-F259 9-inch AV receiver along with various speakers, subwoofers and amplifiers.
