Amp will not power on at all

Hello I got a MRV-F353 V12 amp from a budy of mine, he told me that it used to work fine but some of the channels where burnt out, then one day it just quit working, so he let me have it to work on. I opened it up and found a couple risistors and transistors blown, so I replaced them. I took it to work to hook it up to my power supply and test it, but it still want power on. So my question is where should I start, Ive look for the wiring scamtic but was unable to locate one. Any help would be nice. Thank You

Just want to know what speaker wattage matches my v12 mrv f705 85 rms x4 channel amplifier?


Use speakers that will handle 85 RMS continuous or higher wattage. I have 200 watt Rockford 6.5s on a 75 watt amp. They sound great with plenty of headroom if I go to a bigger amp.

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 mrv-f545 powers up but no power going to the channels


I suppose you checked all the usual suspects? Fuse, Ground, and Remote turn on?
Now if memory serves me isn't that an amp that has a digital display on the top? If so you have to scroll thru the menu items and see if it is on low pass or even off? The gains are tricky because they get louder with less dbs. but check the outputs.
if all else fails it's probalby bad.

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.

MRV - 1507 Question ...


The MRV-1507 is a two channel amplifier, below I've pasted important info from the manual:

Battery Lead (Sold Separately)
Be sure to add a 80 amp fuse as close as possible
to the battery’s positive (+) terminal. This fuse will
protect your vehicle’s electrical system in case of a
short circuit. If you need to extend this lead, the wire
gauge should be AWG8 or larger.
MRV-1507 ... 80A amp fuse

Power Output: RMS Continuous Power (at 12.0V, 20 Hz to 20
kHz)
MRV-1507
Per channel into 4 ohms ......................... 150W, 0.08% THD
Per channel into 2 ohms .......................... 300W, 0.3% THD
Bridged into 4 ohms ................................ 600W, 0.3% THD

Amp heats up quickly, melts fuses and shut down after a while


It sounds like the power cable you have may be too small. If you're using an 8 gauge for both the power and the ground, try switching to a 4 gauge for both.
