ALPINE PDX 1.1000

Hello,

my alpine amp was working great one day and out of nowhere while is was knocking one 12 inch JL W6V2, tha amp cut at high bass. now there are two lights on both sides of the control panel to control gain and such, the light on the right is RED, and the light on the left is blue, it will turn on but will not send power to the sub, any ideas? i din't think that one 12" W6V2 was too much for that amp? if anything the amp should've been too much for the sub.

any ideas fellas?

thanks!

    but would ohms really matter if the amp can take a 4ohm or 2 ohm load? and still send out 1000rms? tthe W6 is a DVC and i have it wired parallel. sounded great before and out of nowhere it just has this red light bro..no burning smell of nothing, i even opend the amp, all is well inside

Well you would have to look into the ohms of the amp compared to the ohms of the speaker. If the ohms are different you would have to hook them up in a different way. check the RMS on the speaker as well as the amp, this can also be sufficed by wiring it different if ohms match up properly! Hope this helps you out and if this is not the case let me know.

    this all depends on what the speaker is as well and which wiring diagram it entales to hook it up. If all that is fine your Amp went into what i call a freeze mode. You may want to adjust a few of your bass curve knobs on the side because your DB might be too much or you took your stereo up to high at one point and the amp needs to be back to normal to read.

I have a 12" d4 type r 1000 rms and a alpine 1000 amp speaker sounds great but smells like something is burning, my amp never over heats or shuts down but the smell is still coming from the sub?


Cut your gain back on the amp. It sounds like they are set too high. Check your install instructions on how to set your gain. If you have a 4 or 5 volt output head unit your will not be at half way. Im running a JL Audio 500 /1 on a skar wwv10 dvc in a ported box. My gain is set about half way & its plenty loud.I have a Alpine 9887 headunit 5 volt output on my RCAsI can take a volt meter & set my speaker output at 45amps & my gain in perfect.

PDX 1.1000 amp overheating?


Hello thefatman69e,

The Alpine PDX-1.1000 is a physically small amp to produce the power that it does. The result is that it has less physical area for heat to dissipate. Running at or near it's maximum output into a 2 ohm load, it needs some serious airflow to keep it cooled down. I'd look for some way to get more air to it.

Hope this helps.

I have 2 6x9 speakers up front 4 6 1/2 3-ways


Hello rjmiller4039,

Although amps with 5 channels are pretty rare, you can get one. Alpine, Boston Acoustics, Infinity, JL audio, MTX, and Polk all have 5-channels ranging in price from around $350 up to around $1,000. The Alpine PDX-5 will output 75X4 watts RMS for the front and rear stereo channels and 300 watts to the mono sub channel. It is priced at $599.99 at Crutchfield.

Hope this helps.

Alpine pdx 1.000 keeps cutting out


You are going to want to make sure all your power wires and grounds are 4 gauge as well as the wire leads to and from the capacitor-4 gauge also. make sure you have a very good ground - the power wire from the battery should hit a distribution block-from the dist. block a 4 gauge should go to the capacitor another 4 gauge to the mono amp and another to the 4 channel amp -every component should have a good solid ground even if you have to bust out a grinder and a drill and some self tapping sheet metal screws and go nuts on it- see if that helps you

PDX 4.100 In Protect Mode..


According to the manual, the issue could be:
  • Internal issue with the amp circuitry.
  • A short on the speaker output(s).
  • Power source voltage is too high (aka above 14.5V).
  • Overheating.
The easiest thing to do is to try removing the connections to the speakers at the amp and see if the issue disappears after each set has been disconnected. Keep removing wires until both LEDs stay blue.

Amp cuts off


You may have a problem with the power source feeding the amp. You need to check the voltage across the amplifier's B+ and ground terminals when the amp is playing/cutting off. If it's dropping below ~11 volts, you need to determine why it's dropping so low.
