This means too much current, find and eliminate cause of excessie current and turn power off, also possibe power and ground are not big enough .Recommend 4guage wires

Their are 2 power wires,2 negative wires and 2 rem wires...how is this wired..im getting ready to get this put i


Some amps come with extra, power,rem,ground, so you can , power up another Amp Without runing to many wires. , or using a power block.like a parallel, being your 1st Amp your power block, and your remote, ground .

I have a JBL GTO 7001, it switches in an out of protection mode. i pulled out the amp, an noticed that the positive wire from the speaker was pulled out. so i disconnected the power scorce an reconnected...


Make sure that your positives and negatives are lined up correctly. This happened to me during my latest install and the problem was I had one positive speaker wire plugged into a negative speaker terminal. This switches the amp on after a few seconds and then back to protect mode once it detects a faulty speaker wire. Hope this helps!

Display shows 'PROTECT' and is blocked


If protect is coming up on the display, it means the system is detecting a short somewhere on one of the speakers and so is turning the amp off to avoid damage.
Check all the connections at the back of the amp to ensure they are not shorting, and at the back of each speaker, if nothing is found there, check each wire for damage, or a bare wire touching the body of the car

I have an alpine mrd-m1001 getting curr message ho do you reset the amp


Hello deeprajm,

Shorted or low impedance outputs can cause the "CUR" display. Power down everything and remove the speaker wires. If it will then power up without the display, the problem is probably a short in the speaker wire or voice coil, or the impedance load is too low. If there are multiple subs, reconnect them one at a time to isolate the bad one and then correct the problem. If the amp works properly with either of the subs but not both, rewire the subs for a higher final impedance.

If the amp still displays "CUR" with the speakers disconnected, there's most likely an internal fault that requires component level repair.

Hope this helps.

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.

How do you get it out of cur mode


Hello whatup_132,

If the M605 fails and displays "CUR", it means that there is excessive current to the amp.

The most common causes for excessive current draw is operating the amp into a lower impedance than it is rated to handle, shorted speaker voice coil(s), and/or shorted or grounded speaker wires.

The amp can operate into a load no lower than 2ohms. First power everything off and disconnect the positive amp power lead temporarily (easist way is to just pull the fuse). At this point you should ONLY have the ground and remote connected. Reconnect positive (insert fuse) and turn on the vehicle ignition and your head unit. If the amp still displays the "CUR" error, the output MOSFET's are probably defective and the amp requires repair or replacement. If it powers up normally, reconnect the speaker wires until you locate the faulty one, and then correct whatever is causing it.

Hope this helps.

CUR display


Hello yte1771,

You can download the manual from Crutchfield.

The "CUR" display is an indication of excessive current and is most likely caused by too low impedance or a fault in the wiring or the amp itself. It's probably not your cap.

Hope this helps.

CUR is showing on the display


The amp will reset when you cut the power off to it. Disconect bat for 30 sec and reconect. But to be honist with u if the wire jumped out and grounded some how during a high level, there is probley internal damage done.

Only one sub works


The amp should produce no output when using the left negative and the right positive.

If the amp works bridged (left positive and right negative) with one speaker AND works when you connect one speaker from the left positive to the right positive, it would appear as though the right channel isn't getting any signal.

Try inserting only the left signal cable (nothing plugged into the right RCA jack) to see if the right channel will work when a speaker is connected to the right channel speaker terminals.

CUR showing on the display


Have you measured the DC resistance of the woofer to determine if it's OK? You will need to disconnect it from the amp. Check each voice coil individually.

 

If you disconnect both speaker wires from the amp, does it still show an overcurrent condition?
