Question about Alpine Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I have no idea how to get the subs to work. I took my old subs out of my box , and the problem is putting my new subs in. I have 2 12 inch alpine type r's they're the 4ohm's and there is " jumpers " on the sub with wires you have to connect to them? it's confusing... i tried just hooking the wires up to the terminals but little to no sound comes out when i try playing them? what could be wrong?

Here's a picture of series-parallel wiring. This should yeild 4 ohms, which is a common impedance for 12v Class D amps (like yours, most likely) to support.

What is the best box for 2 ALPINE SWR-1242D 12"SUBWOOFERS TYPE-R NEW SUB WOOFERS


Ported and tuned to around 37-40 hertz. After all displacement the box should be in the 2.2 cubic foot for sub and you will be very impressed. Build it yourself for optimum sound and output.

I have an alpine type rs one is a1542 and one is 1522 how can I make them hit the same or can I ?


I dont think it matters but it is not really a good idea to have two different subs in one box (if they are). They need to be in phase. They have to have the same amp is running them with corrects wattage and impedance, ya they can hit the same. The subs are so much the same i really dont think it matters if they are in the same box.

Two 10" Rockford Fosgate P1 subwoofers stopped making sound


Sounds like you've blown them.

When you were playing back to the friend, were you playing louder than usual?

Was the old box ported, and the new one sealed? The lack of ventilation may have caused the blow...

System cutting out


Pull the subs out of the box and check the connections... Check to see if the wires running from the connectors on the sub itself to the voice coil... had a JL 10 that had a frayed wire to the voice coil system would cut in and out. Hope its helpful

Need to build a ported sub box for my alpine swr-1222d subs x 2


Try going to Alpine web site, I think they have box building program as well that you just input your sub models into and it gives you blueprints for various types of enclosures. I know Rockford has one and a comparative attachment to compare equipt specs. Or if you call Alpine headquarters you may be able to get info that way, I once sweet talked a rep @ a demo vehicle I met doing some car shows that turned me on to a senior rep @ Korbon Trading the owners of Rockford Fosgate and they gave me specs for a 5 stage band pass box for some competition subs that was more intricate and detailed than anyone before that could find me, Won me first place in spl. Matching your box specs to your subs is crucial and the best specs are often kept a secret for demo competition vehicles! So ask around with some competition guys or other top experts if your real serious about your boooom.
