The iLX-W650 is a mech-less design (no CD/DVD slot) and has a very shallow chassis that measures only 2.4-inches deep. The shallow chassis allows the system to fit into vehicles that do not have a lot of depth behind the dashboard or into other applications that require a small amount of space.

Introducing: The Swipe

A two-finger swipe motion moving up, down, left, or right will control volume up, volume down, track skip forward, and track skip back. The two-finger swipe can be done at any location on the touch screen, eliminating the need for the driver to search and touch a specific area for each command.

Alpine's Unique Radio/Amp

The Alpine ILX-W650 and KTA-450 Power Pack Amplifer Combination create an impressive system that delivers an amazing amount of power without the need for a traditional, secondary amplifier. The iLX-W650 in conjunction with the KTA-450 Power Pack Amplifier won a 2019 International CES Innovation Award in the In-Vehicle Audio/Video category.

Installation was simple and fast, with the exception of the parking brake wire. You can't do any customization without that connection, including dimming. I wish there was infinite dimming for the back light, but it's not overpowering. My antenna appears to be connected properly, but am unable to tune in any stations.

Pros - Great sound, fit and function, especially for $300.

Cons - Parking brake wire safety feature, no infinite back light dimming

Typical Alpine Elegance at a discount price

Fast start-up, steering wheel controls work fine, camera works well. The auto dimmer has enough variability for my taste. Did not do the parking bypass but found only the advanced sound settings need parking brake. Screen beautiful, excellent response, good sound. Thought I would be annoyed by parking brake for settings but really they are set once and forget. Would rather live than watch videos while I drive.

Overall Great Product!

The Radio screen display is lit up nicely with big easy to read buttons and easy to jump to different pre-programmed stations. I also have steering wheel control that works great also. Only thing missing is it doesn't have HD or RDS or whatever you call it to show the Artist name and song. When you play your own music, it does show this information. Apple Car Play is excellent! Now I can see my maps on the screen instead of looking at my phone. A must for the future of no looking at your phone while driving! The back-up camera works well too.

Works Great!

It pretty much works wonderfully with my Samsung note 8. It takes almost no time to actually hook up. I do wish it would start up faster, but no other complaint.

I like it very much!

I just installed this in my 1999 Ford Crown Victoria LX. It fits very easily into place with only minor modification to the dash cavity. All I needed to do was remove the plastic ridges at the top and bottom with a rotary sanding tool. I also trimmed any excess length off the back of the dash install kit. It's a super easy fit.

After being frustrated by finding a defroster duct running through my dash, blocking any chance at easy double din head unit installation, I found the iLX-W650! It sounds fantastic and its super shallow body seems like it was made with my specific space limitations in mind!

Also, the price is quite competitive. Sonic even gave me the installation parts free for my car. Not sure about yours but I'd call them and ask! They're super helpful.

Great design

Radio works and looks great! It also is half the size of a regular double din in the back which leaves tons of room for extra wires.

Not Bad!

First off I like this product. You definitely get what you pay for and then some. I almost exclusively bought this unit for Apple Carplay function. And it does that semi reliably. When I first got it it was almost never. So I did a software update and that improved it but didn't completely fix it. So I have to plug and unplug replug the lightning cable on a regular basis but not always. I plan on getting a new cable and trying that, but the two or three that I have did the same thing. When it works it's awesome though. Love the capacitive touch screen. It doesn't show finger prints terribly bad. The radio reception is great, although I don't use it a lot. But it doesn't show station tags and songs that I have figured out. Kind of weird to not have that. I would recommend this unit to anyone. I'm knocking it down due to the connection to Carplay issues but overall for three bills this is a great buy.

Nice stereo and sounds good

I was really surprised by this stereo. I bought it with the kata-450 that attaches to the back of it but it sounded good without it. The only issue I've got is alpines usual stuff where you have to have it connected to parking brake switch to get to settings and all. Other than that. It looks and sounds good.

awesome radio

ILX-w650 is a great overall unit,
super shallow chassis, great sound quality, smooth user interface with no added nonsense. touch screen is almost identical to an ipad.

cons, single rear usb, must use APPLE lighting cable to work with carplay can NOT be a non apple product, can not turn off the crossovers.

other then those cons, i love the unit. the SQ is so good that ALL the con's can be over looked!!!!

Great product!

This radio exceeds my expectations. I was ecstatic to find an Alpine source unit with a fair pricetag. When you pair this unit with the Alpine KTA-450 you create a high quality sound at an excellent price. Even with the power pack mounted on the back, the space the combo takes up in the dash is far less than the average aftermarket head unit. I would have gave this product 5 stars but I felt like a couple things are missing. It would have been nice to have HD radio and an aux input in the back to incorporate my stock dash options but needless to say I am still extremely happy with my choice.

Great Alpine Unit

This Alpine interface is very easy to use, big icons, enjoyed the Apple Car Play, Siri, microphone very accurate I didn’t have to repeat. Sound is awesome, I also added the Alpine KTA 450 and attached it to the back of the head unit and have 100 w per channel. Also added the Alpine Powered Subwoofer PWE-S8. Added the Sirius XM tuner with 3 months free to try it out, sounds great. Added an Alpine Back up Camera. The only thing I wish I could do is to change the background screen, maybe Alpine will have a firmware upgrade soon. Also, I would like to have more Apps like Netflix, Weather, Google or mirror the iPhone would be a nice feature. The price is fair. Recommend this product from Sonic Electronix's best prices and fast delivery.

Great product

Its a great unit especially for the price it really exceeded my expectations. The only thing is if parking brake wire is not hooked up alot of the functions wouldnt work. But after wiring everything up as it should be everything works and is great no problems from it...
