Amplifier displays "CUR"


Hello anwbrown,

The "CUR" display means that the amp is drawing excessive current and the protection circuit is activating. Too low impedance or shorted speakers will cause the amp to draw excessive current.

The Alpine V12 is a Class D mono amp with only one set of speaker outputs. All versions, M301, M501, and M1001 are only stable to 2ohms. Assuming that all 6 of your connected subwoofers and speakers are 4ohm and they're all connected in parallel, the amp sees a .67 ohm load, far below it's rated impedance.

When brand new, the amp could probably operate at low to moderate volume levels without drawing excessive current. But as electronic components age, their tolerances change and they become less able to withstand excessive current or mismatched impedances.

I'd get a 4-channel amp and drive the 4" speakers off the front channels and the 6X9's off the rear channels. And just power the subs off the V12 making sure that they are connected to show a minimum load of 2ohms.

Hope this helps.

Alpine v12 amp no power


its your fuse box. i would bypass the fuse box and wire this amp directly to the battery via monster cable. make sure you attach a 30wieght fuse to the monster cable that is running from the battery to your amp. ground the amp against the trunk. scrape the paint of a section and drill a hole in the trunk. use this for the ground for you amp. this will fix the no power issue.

Over heating problem


"how do i made amp ohm instead of 4"
What?
I think you're asking how to make the amp 2 ohm. If your 12's are already wired for 2 ohm, just connect the 2 leads to the bridged terminals on the amp. There will be 4 connections on the amp. One for each channel. Usually, the two outside terminals (one positive and one negative) are the bridge and it'll be noted with a line painted on the surface above the terminals. That's all you have to do.
If it is overheating, you should put cooling fans on it.
