HDZ-653 Alpine Status 6.5″ 3 way component speaker system


Alpine Introduces the all-new Alpine Status sound system: using the same engineering and design concepts drawn from the third generation, Ultra High-Resolution AlpineF#1Status system, Alpine created “Alpine Status” to achieve High-Resolution Sound at a more approachable and accessible price point. The Alpine Status system is also extremely flexible: all components can be purchased and used in “stand-alone” configuration.

For the audiophile that’s looking to build an ideal sound system, Alpine Status offers a wide range of Hi-Res Audio enabled speakers. The HDZ-653 3-Way speaker set with a high-resolution bandwidth of 55Hz – 40kHz includes a 170mm door woofer, 96mm mid-range, and 70mm ring-radiator tweeter with 25mm voice coil. They also include high-end speaker X-overs.

All speaker cones are made from the same Carbon Composite material to create a unified timbre identity during playback. They get very close to the AlpineF#1Status speakers look and feel, using a very similar constructing and motor assembly, as well as the identical build-materials for highest sound quality.

Hi-Res Audio Made Accessible

The Alpine Status system features many technologies, components and materials of the AlpineF#1Status system to achieve ultra high-precision music reproduction – at an affordable price tag. It is designed to play music tracks at 192kHz / 24bit format, which are widely accessible in many online stores and streaming platforms. Hi-Res Audio playback of 192kHz / 24bit allows Alpine Status to create a heightened listening experience in the vehicle that emulates the feeling of an intimate recording studio session.

Audiophile 3-Way Speaker System

Drawing from AlpineF#1Status trickle-down technology and materials, these Hi-Res Audio certified speakers deliver highest audiophile sound quality up to 40kHz in your vehicle. The 3-way system consists of 170mm door woofers, 96mm mid-range speakers and 70mm ring-radiator tweeters with 25mm voice coil. They also include high-end X-over networks in the set.

Carbon Fiber Cones

All speakers in this set (as well as the HDZ-110 Alpine Status subwoofer) use backed carbon composite cones to achieve a fully unified timbre identity – resulting in excellent harmonics. Carbon is very lightweight and stiff, resulting in high dynamics and low distortion. Backed carbon composite technology is also used in race-car monocoques for its light weight and high crash resistance.

High-End Ring-Radiator Tweeter

The included 70mm Hi-res Audio ring-radiator tweeters sound simply amazing and play up to 40kHz. They feature a 25mm carbon fiber diaphragm that is tuned to perfectly harmonise with the mid-range speaker and woofer to achieve a fully unified timbre identity. They also include an integrated wave-guide, tuned-back chamber and a powerful neodymium magnet.

Double-Gathered Edge

The most interesting feature of the HDP-90 are the 12-channel speaker-level inputs with matrix input summing. This allows the HDP-D90 to be connected to most existing original sound systems (even large multi-channel OEM systems), replacing all components after the Head Unit in the audio chain. This allows you to build your desired sound system while keeping the original radio / navigation system of your vehicle. It also features 2-channel RCA inputs, Optical TOSLINK and Coaxial Inputs, as well as Bluetooth Audio (with the supplied Bluetooth dongle).

Alpine Status Full System

Alpine Status features many components that are optimised in both power and performance as a complete system to play at their intended high-resolution spec for excellent, audiophile sound quality. However, each component can be purchased independently for custom system building.

Audiophile Speaker X-Overs

The included 3-way x-over networks feature hand-selected, high-end components and offer many adjustment possibilities: you can adjust the mid-range level from 0dB to -3dB, the tweeter level from +3dB, 0dB or -3dB and you can set the woofer X-Over to either 12dB/oct or 6dB/oct. The smoked acrylic cover bearing the Alpine logo can be slid-out to the front to gain access to the screw-terminals and jumpers.

Slim-Fit Tweeter Version

If you are planning a stealthy speaker installation or simply have no space for a 7cm tweeter, there is also a Slim-Fit version of this 3-way system. It is called HDZ-653S and includes the same woofers, mid-range and network, however the included tweeter is 44mm in diameter and has a much more shallow installation depth. This makes it very easy to be installed in original tweeter locations.

Studio Recording Spec

Alpine Status achieves 192kHz/24Bit playback, which is 6.5 times the amount of digital audio data in a standard CD or digital streaming service and exceeds the standard High-Resolution spec of 96kHz/24Bit found in most aftermarket sound solutions. This allows Alpine Status to capture and accurately reproduce details like the breath of the artist or a musician’s subtle interaction with an instrument. This capability not only reproduces music to the artist’s original intention, but emulates the experience of a studio recording in the vehicle.
