Re: amp displays the letters curr
Have you disconnected all inputs and outputs on amp and retried starting it power only? if so your amp has an internal solder bridge and must be repaired by authorized repair center. Repair it or replace it at wholesale price from www.godspeedaudioheaven.com

Make sure that your positives and negatives are lined up correctly. This happened to me during my latest install and the problem was I had one positive speaker wire plugged into a negative speaker terminal. This switches the amp on after a few seconds and then back to protect mode once it detects a faulty speaker wire. Hope this helps!
According to an Alpine owner's manual, for that type of amp, you should be able to remove power from the amp, then reconnect power to reset the error. If it doesn't reset, either there is another short in the wiring or the amp has permanent damage and needs repair.
Sounds like you have an ohm problem, Tryy hooking the positive from one speaker to the negative on the other speaker. Then hook the negative from the first speaker to the negative on your amp and the positive from the second to the positive on the amp this will drop your ohm load and the amp should stop going into protection.
if you are bridged in parallel instead of in series the amp wont support the load so it turns the power protect on till the amp cant handle nomore then the amp will go if you have two subs bridged run them left speaker possative to to the amp possative for bridged mode then laft speaker negative to the right speaker possative then right speaker negative to your amp negative for bridged mode if you have them left and right speaker possative to amp possative and left and right speaker neggative to your negative to your amp thats parallel the ampwont support the 2 ohm load
The amp will reset when you cut the power off to it. Disconect bat for 30 sec and reconect. But to be honist with u if the wire jumped out and grounded some how during a high level, there is probley internal damage done.
The amp should produce no output when using the left negative and the right positive.
If the amp works bridged (left positive and right negative) with one speaker AND works when you connect one speaker from the left positive to the right positive, it would appear as though the right channel isn't getting any signal.
Try inserting only the left signal cable (nothing plugged into the right RCA jack) to see if the right channel will work when a speaker is connected to the right channel speaker terminals.
Appears to be an issue with current. Is the speaker the correct impedance for the amplifier ? Have you confirmed there are no short circuits in the wiring ? I'm not familiar with this particular product,
The alpine catalogue gives recommended amp/speaker combos. If you don't have an aplpine sub, then look at the specs and find a similar one. You may be trying to load the amp too heavily and it will protect itself.
