I have an Alpine MRV-450 and it seems to cut out for 10 minutes and then come back on. The light turns blue while not producing sound. Is it overheating? If so is ther a solution to this problem?

How long before it shutsdown. what impedance are your speakers (single/dual 4ohm? etc) and how are they wired to the amp if it gets real hot and protection kicks on i imagine your speaks need wired different (series instead of parallel)

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.

After driving for about thirty minutes my amp will just cut off, it seems a little hot and then it will turn back on in about 10 minutes. I'm not playing my music loud at all and I have all kenwood...


sounds like your speaker is either the wrong resistance for your amp ie your amp may state 4 ohms and your speaker is 2 ohms which means that the speaker is shorting out the amp and its going into protection mode or the speaker could be burning out and shorting out the amp

Sub cutting out


Check the 12v wire running from the battery to the amplifier. Also the sony explode is a garbage subwoofer compared to the Alpine.. sony (they say 1200w max but its more like 100w to power the thing) Amp could be going. Is the amplifier hot when running. If there is a burnt smell comming from the amp, its the amplifier

My Alpine CDA-7863 does not read when I turn the ignition on,the screen does not read,it just make a clicking noise.I have no idea how to manually wire it .I just bought a 1996 tahoe and this Alpine was in...


1. you can go here and get a wiring manual with right model #.
http://www.alpine-usa.com/US-en/support/
2. The red wire goes to ignition switch/key.
Yellow wire goes to constant hot/battery.
Black wire is ground.
Blue wire is for power antana you do not need to hook that to anything.
You can look at this diagram for a little more help it is not your radio though but it will give you a reference point to look at. All radio red,yellow,blue,black wires are the same on all radios.

go to page 42 on this site for wire diagram.
Good luck with problem.

Car Audio Problems-Amp cuts out


No the reson for the amp overheating is do to the OHM ratting that you have the sub if to have the both wired up then just wire  one up and that will give you the OHM ratting that your amp is ratted for the way that you might have it is the way that we wire them for coms. where it is on for 30sec and no more. if you would like more help let me know.
