Hello, First of all with these new Alpine amps everithing adjustable just about is digital, as well as the internal workings of the amp to a point. If you bought this amp new then check your warranty or take it back where you purchased it if you can. Check that your amp is getting an input signal from your head unit. Check your head unit sub output settings, something could have gotten turned off or down. On this paticular amp if there is a problem internaly it would let you know or go into protection mode. You say your sub has ben tested and is good, check again. Hook another speaker up to the amp. Unhook that speaker and try, you never know. Like I said, if the amp is'nt going into protect mode and the digital display is'nt telling you any types of faults then it has to be the input signal. Make sure you are getting a signal. That has to be your problem otherwise amp would be in protect mode. Let me know what you find.

Need to know if a looped ground would make it where the tuner on my car stereo works fine but the cd player only uses the subs and no other speakers work ? On a 1995 BMW 325i


It sounds to me like you are using more than one amplifier and are using the blue wire (power antenna remote turn on) to turn the amp for the rest of your speakers. The blue wire turns off when leaving tuner mode, thus turning off the amp(s).

Power to amp no sound


Test your subs on another amp....If they are fine then try running different rcas in your car from the stereo to see if they are the culprit. If still no sound probably your output on your amp is gone.

Basicly my speakers were working fine, my subs were working fine but everytime i was turning my volume up to a certain level i would lose all base and all noise from the subs in my boot, so i turned it...


The amp should always light up showing you that it is powered and there will also be a red light that will light up if theres something wrong.Sounds like maybe the hot wire that goes to the amp isnt big enough to give the amp enough power.Check your positive wire and ground wire for tightness and make sure hot wire supply is big enough and also the ground wire is big enough and has a good ground.I hope this Helps you.Have A great day..

KAC-9102d no sound, Amp powers on but no sound to the subs.


If the sub isn't working, you won't get a pop. All you need is a small speaker. Don't need a sub, you just want to test the sound. I recently blew 2 subs, no smoke, no smell, no sign of being blown. Absolutely nothing from the subs.... In the past my sub locked up. You can take your sub out of the box and hook the + and - to the battery to see if you can get the sub to pop there. I believe a small box will push a sub into a deep excursion to the center of the cone. I have 2 lanzar VW12D's that just quit. I hooked a 6 x 9 up to my amp and low and behold I had sound! Try that and see what you get...

My amp only powers the subwoofer when the radio is on but wont when the cd player is on


The person(s) who hooked up your system made a boo boo. They wired your remote turn on lead to the power antenna lead instead of the amp turn on line (both are blue and easy to mix up). Thus when your radio is on it sends a signal to the amp and the amp turns on, but when you set to CD the signal goes away and your amp shuts down. Easy fix, just re-wire the amp turn on lead and the problem will be fixed.

I do not hear any music through my 10" M Audio Subs (M Audio Sound System)


If you know how to use a multimeter, you can test the amp this way:

-unhook the subs
-hook up a cheapie speaker you know for sure works to one of the channels
-unhook the audio inputs
-turn the amp on
-set your meter to VDC
-put the positive probe on the inside of the input connector, being sure you make contact with th inner contact
-take the negative probe and tap it on the outside of the connector

What you are doing is sending a low voltage (replicating an audio signal) into the amp audio circuit and allowing the amp to amplify it. If the amp makes the speaker pop each time you strike the probe, the amp is working.

You mentioned you need a 4 channel amplifier make the two, dual voice coil subs operate. The is not true and by hooking them up like that, there's a chance of damaging the subs. The reason is that the dual voice coils are interwoven and they have to get electrically identical signals or they fight against each other. The can mechanically fail, then, electrically fail, then even damage the amp too.
