Alpine x200 Subwoofer Preout pushing out a weak signal

I just recently bought the alpine x200 receiver, replacing my kenwood mp138 receiver thinking that I would get a better sound from the alpine cuz the preout is a 2v as oppose to 1.2v but when I plugged in the alpine it seems as if my sub wasnt hitting as hard, and I didnt even messed with the setting in the amp, someone told me to use the gain on the amp, but I thought since i have a higher preout voltage now I should be turning down the voltage as opposed to turning it up. Do u think its my alpine deck that has problems

Hi, just turn up the gain, though the max voltage may be higher, it does not mean the audible output is higher, alpine decks subwoofer control is an attenuator, so at max it will be the same level as front n rear, on min it is -15db... you will probably find the kenwood is +/- 7db so it has a gain boost...
just crank up the amp gains, problem sorted...

I just replaced my subwoofer in my car and i need to turn up the gain on my new subwoofer. can i do this from my alpine cda9855 head unit


Yes on most alpine units this feature is available but the sub woofer has to be conected to the sub woofer input and if it's setup like this you can go to your audio menu on your alpine unit and turn it up or down I hope this helps.

I would like know whether a sony xplod subwoofer can be connected to my alpine car audio system! xplod sub woofer is 1100 watts.


Deffinitely but wired directly would be pointless, the Alpine's internal amp is way to weak to get the best out of the sub. You need an amp, minimum 300w and bridge the outputs to give all the power to sub preferably switched to low-pass (most amps will have a high / low pass switch)

My alpine ida x200 keeps skipping during songs


All you can really do is use a CD Player cleaner *one that uses fluid* run it thru a couple times and try a disc again. Clean your CD's with liquid car polish an a microfibre towel, it works wonders for new and old CD's. If it still skips, It needs to be pulled for repair. They just replace the transport, usually runs between 100-150 depending on the service center. Hope this helps.

Sat radio not working


It's a Bad SIRIUS Tuner. there have been lots. If it's in warranty, have it replaced. if not, you can still find that unit for around $50 from Crutchfield etc. Hope this helps.

Alpine cda-9811 is not accepting amp as external amplifier?


The signal should go from the head unit to the amp to the subs. Someone must not have wired the subs correctly through the amp, or amp to the cd player..

The manual appears to only be available in Japanese. Sorry. http://www.alpine.co.jp/alpine/owners/oml_images/pdf/mda-w779jb_om02.pdf I have however been able to badly translate the japanese for the clock setting - check page 50 of the manual (page 17 of the pdf file). It reads: To set the Time: keep pushing "Disp 1" until you get the time set mode (possibly means 'hold down' not keep pressing) press "Clk Adj" for 2 seconds or more and the time blinks If you push "H" within 5 seconds you can adjust the time. push "M" to change the values, then if you leave it for 5 seconds it is set. The first footnote says this directly translated - sorry I have no idea what they mean on this one (i think carries means saves in this case)- "When liking to adjust to time signal, when ?the time? ?, CT? is pushed after the setting ?amount? indication becomes with ?00?. ?: When indicating which exceeds 30? when ?CT? is pushed, ?the time? it carries" Second footnote says this; You can do this procedure starting from any mode. Hopefully, with the pictures in the manual to show you which buttons they are talking about, this can get your clock set. If so, then if you want to try and translate other parts of the book, just copy and past it bit by bit into; http://translate.google.com/translate_t?langpair=ja|en seems quite good as these things go. Hope this helps, if not please ask again and tell me what you got trying the above procedure. :)
