Question about Alpine Car Speakers & Subwoofers

1 Answer

I have an Alpine CDA9884 the deck has been in my car for about 3mos and I've been listening to my speaker from the power put out by the deck itself. I have installed an Alpine PDX 4.100 and a PDX 1.600. When I had everything connected using the proper guage wire and making sure all connections were true, the remote turn on from the deck puts out no power, thus the amplifiers don't turn on. I determined that there is not power to the remote turn on using a test light. What do I look at now?

    I tried what the manual says to do, and still nothing, interestingly enough in the radio mode there doesn't seem to be any power to the power ant. wire either. Is my deck defective?

The manual says that you should power off the internal amp if using external amps. Maybe you need to do this to get power going through the remote turn on?

in the menu its "POWER IC ON" you need to change it to "POWER IC OFF"

hope this helps?

    hmm, it seems to have a lot of power faults on the output side...maybe a fault internally, If it's still under warranty I'D RMA it and let Alpine fix it ;)

They speakers, when they hit hard they make this odd... smacking sound.. Also on just like.. eminem songs and some rock songs that I listen to whenever the subs hit the vocals get distorted, but when I...


Well it sounds like you need a mono block amplifier for the subwoofers. Subwoofers are ment for low frequency. If you try to run regular audio through the subwoofer the sound will become distorted at a high volume. If you have a crossover on the amplifier try putting it on LP. Also do not exceed the RMX rateing on the subwoofer because if you do they will also distort. If you try adding the mono block on to it and it is still doing it you may also be running to much power to the subwoofers.

I need the wiring dia. for alpine 8020


If the alpine 8020 is a deck(head unit) the wire diagram is as followed:

Red: Accessory
Yellow: Constant Power
Black: Ground
Orange to orange/white is a illumination or dimmer wire.
White: front left speakers
Grey: front left (white black and so on usually the negative on the speaker connections)
Purple rear left (purple black = neg)
Green: Rear Right
And if a video deck(light green is park brake)
(which is usually just a ground) so legally it needs to be on your park brake but can be grounded to make it work.

Speakers? (Terminals larger one is positive, smaller one is negative) Place capacitors on if needed to filter out and clear up bass

Hope this helps couldn't look uo what a alpine 8020 was..

I just picked up a 12" type r in a box with a alpine m 350 how do I know what kind of type R I have without taking it out of the box?? and how do i hook it up to this amp??


Not to insult you in any way but u need to know how to wire into car's electrical system at the battery then to a fuse then to the amp and then output the signal from the deck to the amp.. finally to the subwoofer. you need to hook up 12V constant battery power , then remote from the deck ,ground wire from amp to chasis for power.. then wire to sub.

Alpine type-r 2ohm dual voice coil help


try reconnecting your rca's from the deck to the amp when finished wire one speaker positive to positive on left channel and negative to negative on right channel then connect the 1st subwoofer. if all power and sound is fine and working turn off power to amp and connect negative terminal of 1st sub to positive on 2nd sub and positive from first sub to negative on second crossing the wires runs the speakers in series another way to try is parralel the speakers wiring by connecting positive left channel output of amp to positive on 1st sub same with the negative then splice positive to positive on second sub and same with negative.

I have an alpine 9886 and I dont have volume out of the 4 speakers but my subs are working.


if you have the deck keys try pulling the deck out and check the rca's or speaker leads to ensure all is connected properly. if not then solve. if so then it leads into more trouble shooting. best thing about car audio is it is typically a process of elimination. start with power and ground and then check signal wires and connections.

Need to know the right setting to apply for my subs


You need to match your amp's input voltage (the gain) to the output voltage supplied via your deck's preouts. Turn you radio up to normal listening level, and turn the amp's gain until you induce audible distortion then back it off slightly. Set the bass boost and crossovers to on and type (highpass for front/rear full range or lowpass for subs).
