Alpine iLX-W650E

Alpine introduces the all-new Alpine iLX-W650E 7” capacitive audio visual receiver equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to compliment it's existing range of premium head units. Crafted with a cutting-edge design with an ultra-shallow chassis allows for easier installations and fitment into a wider range of vehicles.

Built-in connectivity gives you Apple CarPlay or Android Auto to use apps such as Waze Navigation, Google Maps and Spotify music via the convenience of voice command or touch. Plus, the dual camera input allows connection of a rear camera and a side or front camera making parking easier than ever before. Using "HEY SIRI" or "OK GOOGLE" voice commands, this new smartphone technology is starting to become a true hands free medium making driving safer.

Whats more, the new ultra-shallow chassis design makes way to add-on the compact Alpine KTA-450 Power Pack amplifier (sold separately) which mounts directly onto the back of the chassis. This revolutionary space saving design, delivers incredible power output and dynamic sound-making the PowerStack duo an industry first and honoured with the prestigious 2019 CES Innovation award.

The Alpine iLX-W650E now has a simple swipe interface with an ultra-shallow chassis that can mount to the Alpine KTA-450 Power Pack Amplifier, creating Alpine’s award-winning PowerStack application.

Simplified to make it easier to use

The innovative dual swipe UI puts you in control of your music and keeps your eyes on the road. Using two fingers, simply swipe up or down to adjust the volume and swipe left or right to skip between tracks.

The new swipe control interface is designed for easy use, so you can keep your eyes on the road. A two-finger swipe motion moving up, down, left, or right will control volume up or down and track skip forward or back.
The two-finger swipe can be done anywhere on the touch screen, so you don’t need to swipe on a specific location.


Apple CarPlay and Android Auto give you the best in-car smartphone connectivity allowing access to popular apps such as:
Waze: The world’s largest community-based traffic and navigation app
Spotify: A digital music service that gives you access to millions of songs

The Alpine iLX-W650 includes Android Auto and works with the Google Assistant (requires both a USB cable and Bluetooth® connection; requires an Android™ phone running 5.0 [Lollipop] or higher and the Android Auto app).

To access the Google Assistant on Android Auto, say "OK Google" or select the mic button. Google Assistant in Android Auto allows users to play their favourite music, get driving directions to their destination, interact with smart home devices and reply to text messages – hands free.


The Alpine  iLX-W650 “Works with Apple CarPlay” and lets iPhone users make and receive calls, access text messages, play music, and get directions in a way that allows them to stay focused on the road.

Apple CarPlay is accessed through the capacitive touch screen or the mic button to activate Siri voice control and is compatible with iPhone 5 and later (iPhone must be connected via Apple lightning cable).

Shallow Design

Power Stack Compatibility

Alpine iLX-W650E


The innovative ultra-shallow chassis design spanning a short depth of 6.1cm creates a practical solution for vehicles with restricted areas behind its dashboard. In addition, this design also stacks perfectly with the Alpine KTA-450 Power Pack Amplifier (sold separately).

Create the ultimate PowerStack where the Alpine KTA-450 is situated directly behind the Alpine iLX-W650E.

The combined depth of the PowerStack duo is less than that of a standard 2-DIN chassis ideal for vehicles with tight spaces behind the dash. The Alpine KTA-450 features Alpine’s exclusive technology, Dynamic Peak Power (DPP), which produces 400 watts without the bulk and hassle of a traditional amplifier. This innovative and breakthrough combo offers an affordable power upgrade and a convenient installation.

The new shallow mounting depth makes installation easier in vehicles like the BMW E46 or the Ford Falcon BA-FG's.
