Alpine subs not hitting hard

Ok so I had this system that's nothing but Alpine. I got 2 12 inch SWR-1242D Type R subs, 850 watt amp, and a iva-w100 cd player. Well I wanted a different cd playerso I bought the iva-w205. So i installed the cd player and when I got installed competely and turned everything on my subs hasn't hit as hard as I thought they would. I didn't buy anything but a new cd player. I'm just wondering what the problem could be. I need some help please.

What amp would be better to use with what speakers/sub? I have a KAC-7202 kenwood 920W maximum power (150wX2 RMS, 4ohms) (230wX2 RMS 2ohms) and then the other amp I have is a Alpine MRP-M500 mono power...


I'm using that Alpine right now for 2-12" subs and I have compared it to 6 or 7 other amps this month and most were 4 channel 150Watt/Channel Bridged to 300Watts x 2 and found the Alpine to be superior in both sound quality and loudness. The Alpine has also not turned off even with full volume for hours at a time, Very solid amp I was very surprised due to it's size!

I have one alpine type R 12 SWR-12D4 1000 watts rms-3000 watts peak, and I have it hooked up to the Alpine MRP-M500 mono power amp (500w RMS+1 at 2 ohms and 300w RMS+2 at 4 ohms) I have all great...


I usually run an extra pair of RCA's when I do an install. This way if you have a problem with one you're already set or if you upgrade you won't have to tare you car apart again.

I have the MRP-M1000 amp. I want to hook up 2 alpine subs to this amp. Which alpine subs would be the best for this amp? Please be specific with ohms and watts.


Your best bet will be to wire 2 subs in parallel to the amp. Each sub should be rated for at least 300 watts rms at 4 ohms. This will give you a total impedance of 2 ohms, and your amp will put out 600 watts rms at that impedance. That way, each sub will receive 300 wats rms. I would not recommend wiring subs in parallel, as you will need two 1 ohm subs at 300 watts rms, which are harder to find and will be more expensive. A parallel circuit is the most efficient way to do it.

2 12" subs + 600W amp. Turn on, goes boom once, then red light


Is your gain all the way up? If it done this before, sounds like your over working the amp. Make sure your subs ohm load is capable with the amp load to. If they are 1 ohm and your amp is only 2 ohm stable, it would beat for a lil bit then go into protection mode to. Check your wires too.

Amplifier wont move subs


I dont know if this will help you but start at the deck and make sure that the outputs(RCA) arent crossed over to highpass and do the same at the amp make sure that its set for lowpass- set half gain -bass boost half gain- subsonic minimum - If that doesnt help try using an i pod with an adaptor that you can play it right into the amp this is to see if you are getting signal from the deck to the amp if it doesnt work with an i pod or mp3 plugged directly into it then you may have got you a blown amp going on- good luck with that

General question


you could bridge the speaker wires going to the amp to get maximum power out of the amp to the subs

Alpine


If this occurs with the head unit plugged directly into the amp (no signal processors inline, you probably have open shields on the head unit.

To check the shield ground, disconnect all RCA cables from the head unit and measure the resistance between the RCA shield on the head unit and the case of the head unit. It should read ~0 ohms.
