My Alpine MRP-M650 Amp is acting up. When I start the car, if the volume is at low, the subs don't work. But when I turn up the volume, they eventually kick in, then I can lower the volume. But when...


There are a lot of things that could cause this issue ...
1. Your amp requires more power than it gets when you start your car, and needs to charge up before it can work. If this is the case, you should be able to give your stereo about 5 minutes to warm up at low volume and it should come on. This happens a lot with amps with built-in capacitors (capacitors give you stunning, instant kick when working, but require a bunch of power to initialize). If you wire a bypass switch for the power to your amp and bass components, you can turn it on separate from the rest of the car and allow it to charge before you start your car (just be careful to turn it off when you are going to be away from your car for a while since this will allow your system to drain your battery).
2. Your amp might be set incorrectly for handling the system you are running. If your Ohms do not match up exactly (8 ohm speakers with a 4 ohm amp -- it's the "Impedance rating") then the system should not work at all, or should burn out the amp ... but with a jury-rigged system it can work. If this is the case, I recommend getting a new amp that matches your speakers.
3. Depending on the amp, there might be a volume-based cutoff that is working improperly. Turn on the car with the stereo at low volume. While the speakers are still not working, check to make sure that the amp has power, and seems to be functioning correctly. If everything seems like it's on the up and up, but the speakers are not working, try changing the volume-filter options on your amp.
4. I put this last because it seems like you know what you are doing with the system setup, but it is possible that you have a bad connection between the speakers and the amp, or between the stereo and the amp. There could be a loose connection somewhere (either inside the amp, between the amp and the speakers at the jack, or between the stereo and the amp at the jack). If this were the case, everything would look perfect from a visual inspection, but there could be a tiny space, or corrosion in a connection. Turning the stereo up to a high volume could then bridge this short circuit, and the electric force could magnetize the connection shut, allowing you to then turn the stereo down with the working connection. The best-case scenario here would be an external wiring issue, where you can clean any corrosion off the connections with an eraser, and reconnect everything tightly fixing the problem. The worst case would be a short WITHIN the amp, which would have to be repaired by someone with a lot of time and a circuit tester -- in which case you might be better off trading the amp in for a new one.

My amp stopped workin, when i turn the stereo on, the green light is on, then when the music starts to play it turns red and stops working,


The red light on amplifier relates to power supply while the green light is indication of sound functionality. An amplifier that allows sound to generate should display both red and green lights. Howeever, some amplifiers would display only green as long as the sound is functioning.

Solving the problem

First, a red light still on means the power connections to the amplifier is fucntional least requirng repairs.

Second, the green ligh should turn on once the stereo were tuned up to produce sound. If the stereo is still on only least produce sound on the amplifier, check on the connection wires between stereo to amplifier that may have disconnected due to woofing or dubbing sound generals with unfirm wiring.

Kicker ZX300.1 shuts off after long play at high volume


It's probably overheating and the thermal protection circuit is shutting the amp down.

If it has a fan, the fan may be defective. If I'm not mistaken, the fan only runs at high temperatures so if you check it, you need to do so when the bottom of the amp is almost too hot to touch.

If the fan is working properly, you may be driving too low of an ohm load.

If it's neither of those, get the amp up off of the mounting surface and use an external fan to move air across the bottom surface of the amp.

My car stereo shuts off when i adjust the volume of my amplified subwoofer


your power suplly is either not good meaning the power cable is too small or you don not have enough ground. try adding a bigger cable for ground and power (dc).

Displays "CUR"


You probably have too low of an impedance load on ot (too many speakers or wrong kind). It has to have a minimum of 2 ohms on each channel, or 4 ohms if bridged (that means don't put 2 subs on the bridge!!).

No sound


you may have a blown speaker...many cd decks will shut off their audio circuits when a speaker is blown to protect from shorting out. Go to the back of the deck and try disconnecting speakers one by one. You will have to turn the deck off and back on each time. Hope this helps!
