You have to check the ground connection on the case (inside the crossover). Check if it is ok and it need only one, so if you have bolt it on a metallic part of the car try to undo this to avoid closed loops.

How to hook up alpine 3653?


Instructions
    • 1 Determine the distance between the system amplifier and the 2-way crossover. Cut this with the wire cutters. Strip 1/2 inch of insulation from the amplifier end of both speaker wires. Loosen the amplifier speaker screws with the appropriate screwdriver. Insert the bare wires under the terminals strips. The speaker wire with the writing or molded ridge is usually used as the positive wire. Tighten the wires down with the screwdriver.
    • 2 Route the wires within the vehicle, avoiding potential hazards such as floors, seatbelt areas, and anywhere where small stressing or abrasion may occur. This usually means under side trim or tucked within the dash. Secure any loose speaker wire with zip ties every 4 inches.
    • 3 Remove 1/2 inch of insulation from the crossover end of the wires. Locate the section of the speaker terminals labeled "INPUT" or "AMP." Insert the wires leading from the amplifier under this strip, following the same polarity used at the amplifier. Screw these down with the appropriate screwdriver.
    • 4 Cut lengths of wire to connect from the crossover to the woofer and tweeters. Strip 1/2 inch of insulation from both ends of the wires. Crimp a 16 gauge insulated connector onto the tweeter end of the speaker wire leading from the crossover. Insert the wires under the loosened screws labeled "TW" or "TWEETER." Tighten these back down to secure.
    • 5 Strip 1/4 inch of insulation from the wire pigtail leading to the tweeter. Insert this into the other end of the insulated connector, and crimp it securely. Repeat for both tweeters.
    • 6 Crimp a 16 gauge female spade terminal on the ends of the wires leading to the individual woofers. Slide these over the appropriate terminals on the woofer, again following the same polarity observed at the amplifier. Insert the crossover end of the wires into the "WF" or "WOOFER" terminal on the 2-way crossover. Tighten them back down to secure.

Tip for your home theater system: tweak your subwoofer level and crossover...


An important tip regarding your home theater system is to Tweak subwoofer-level and crossover controls:
Test tones and meters aren't the final arbiters in the bass department. If your sub's bass is boomy, thick, or uneven, first try lowering its volume --most people complain that their sub louder than necessary. Next, if your satellites are very small, the crossover control should also be set to its midpoint or higher. Bigger speakers produce more bass on their own, so they sound best with the sub's crossover knob set at or near the bottom of its range. Finally, moving the sub out of the corner and closer to one of the front speakers may produce smoother, flatter bass.

Only voice from tweeter is coming, nothing from the mid-range and woofers. on cerwin vega v10f


bhurajiv,
Well it's a good thing that you are getting sound from the tweeter from the speaker cabinet with the problem, that eliminates one of the possible problems; your wires are connected!

If your other speaker sounds fine, the first thing to try is to swap your speaker wires with the one that sounds fine. If the problem speaker cabinet still only produces sound from the tweeter, the problem is within the speaker. If the problem goes away, the problem is from your electronics.

If the problem is within your speaker and it is still under warranty, find a authorized repair location (http://www.cerwinvega.com/service_center.php).

Problems within the speaker can only be one or more of the following: 1) The drivers not producing sound have been blown; played with either too much power and/or distortion. Distortion is created when you play your music too loud with a amp not able to reproduce what you are looking for in sound, the speaker itself can hear it before you can.
2) The speaker cabinet has a crossover inside which directs the proper sounds to the proper driver. This crossover can have components that have been broken be either #1 or from exsessive vibration.
3) There are wires inside of the speaker cabinet that have been disconnected. This can happen over time or if someone reaches inside of the cabinet through the port and pulls on the wires; like a young child or pet such as cats.

If the drivers in question just one day stopped producing sound, start with the easiest solution, #3 then #1 if you can suspect anyone could have played your speakers other than you.

To diagnose the problem, you first start by removing the woofer and confirm that all of the wires are connected and in good condition. While the woofer is removed, to eliminate that there is a problem with the speakers, temporarily connect the mid-range and woofer, one at a time, directly to the wire coming from your electontics, if they produce sound the problem is within the crossover network, if they do not produce sound, the problem is with the driver itself. Replacement parts should only be purchased directly from Cerwin Vega directly (http://www.cerwinvega.com/contact_us.php)

I have a 04 silverado do i need to install my component speakers in series or can i hook up woofer to factory wing and tweeter seperate from factory


With component speakers it is imperative that both the speakers be hooked up to the supplied crossover. Wiring them in series or parallel will not yeild satisfactory results since the woofer requires lower freequency then the tweeter, which plays the high notes.

Now some cheaper speakers do not use crossovers and sound rather poor. What make and model of speaker are installing? Does you truck already have component speakers in it?

Volume issue with Alpine CDA-7839 and Soundstream Continuum


Interesting that you have a Soundstream "The Continuum" amplifier. This is limited edition of the Reference 705 amp produced with a polished aluminum (not chrome) case. You have a very hi quality - Old School - amp.

Properly installed this amp should produce more than ample volume levels and certainly far more than a stock unit.

Because the Alpine head unit provides sufficient voltage to drive the amp, it is likely either the wiring, or, the way you have it set up.
The amp has a large internal capacitor bank and for proper operation, this amp must be connected directly to your car battery, prefereably with 4 AWG. (The amp is made with 4 AWG power connections.) Use high quality speaker wire run directly from each speaker to the amp.

If you have done the above, then it is probably the way you have it set up. The amp is sophisticated with many configuration options. Do not change any switch settings while the amp is playing. Ensure you have the appropriate inputs and crossover selected. Check the gain settings.

I got an alpine apx 1300 300w and the protection light is turned on


Most likely there is a short in the output stage. This would mean changing the output IC's and most likely the damaged support compoenents and driver devices.

The Alpine service rep can fix this for you. Some serious troubleshooting will be required.


The cause of this type of faulure is usualy from the following:
  • Short on the speaker wires, either to ground or to each other.
  • Damaged voice coil or crossover causing too much loading.
  • Power surge due to poor voltage regulation.
  • Playing the unit too loud and having clipping (distortion) in the sound. This usually also damages the speakers.

As long as the crossover keeps the frequency going to the tweeters within a safe range (I'd say about 500hz+, read the box or look it up by model number) they should be just fine. That is what the crossover is for.
