  • Sharon:

    To rephrase my early question, what is the model of the first stage and also does it feature Dry Valve Technology? Thanks.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Sharon, the first stage we can order for you is either the SP5 without DVT, or the CDX5 and you can get that with or without DVT. If you have any other questions or would like to place an order please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.

    No, this regulator has an unbalanced First Stage.

ALPHA 9
We set out to make a “standard” regulator that was simple, dependable and economical. What we didn’t expect was that in tests it would outperform other high-end regulators. Not an easy feat for a “standard” downstream demand valve regulator. With the Alpha 9, you get effortless breathing in a compact design that is extremely tough yet easy to maintain and service.

Professional performance, entry-level price. If you believe that you shouldn't have to sacrifice performance for price, the Alpha 9 is for you. The Alpha 9 is the top-performing regulator in its class, and one of the most affordably priced regulators you can buy.

The best price-to-performance ratio in its class
Designed to perform to the U.S. Navy's Class A standards at 198 feet
Inexpensive to maintain
Paired with our SP-5 Sport Piston First Stage with optional DVT (Dry Valve Technology)
Available with MaxFlex Hose which is a lightweight, flexible, Braided hose designed to outperform and outlive traditional rubber hoses.

Best Price / Performance ratio in its class
Not only is the Alpha 9 an economical buy for the diver on a budget, it is just as inexpensive to maintain. Standard replacement parts can cost as little as half of those in other regulators in its class.

Patented orthodontic mouthpiece
To further reduce jaw fatigue, the Alpha 9 features a patented Orthodontic Mouthpiece, designed to accommodate the natural overbite of the human jaw.

Nitrox Compatibility
The Alpha 9 is classified as being suitable for use with nitrox breathing gas mixtures containing up to 40% oxygen by volume without the need for special preparation, cleaning or component parts.

SP-5 Sport Piston First Stage
The SP-5 offers all divers the opportunity to own a top-performing regulator at an unbeatable price. Repeatedly rated as the best in its class, the Alpha SP-5 exceeds both Navy Class A and European CE standards. The Alpha SP-5 may have been the first regulator you ever used due to its widespread use in rental and resort operations.
