I'm assuming this atleast a 2 channel amplifier all you need to do is hook the negative side of the speaker wire coming from the sub to the negative channel one. and the positive to another positive on channel 2. Should indicate on your amplifier channel one and two. most amps provide a diagram right on the amplifier over top of the speaker inputs. let me know if this helps.

I have an alpine mrv-f307 4/3/2 channel. I have it hooked up to 2 12in Kenwood subs. Right now standard 2 channel each sub having their own. I heard doing a series hook up and bridging the subs to the amp ...


Bridging an amplifier refers to combining the power of two channels to run one speaker at higher power. If it is wired correctly, your amplifier is running with 4 channels bridged into 2 speakers now.

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!

How do I bridge this amp to run a single sub?


  • To bridge 1 sub with a Alpine MRV-100M amp you run the negative and positive wires coming from the speaker to the outside terminals on the AMP respectively.

I have 4/3/2 ch. alpine f-240 amp- i want to hook up four 6x8 3-way and one 12''sub. the amp has bass EQ on ch. 3. how would i hook it up and get the most power. can i put the 4 6x8 bridged all together...


run two 6x8s on each of the front channels of the amp. then depending on the sub you can bridge it on the rear channels.only if its a single four ohm. if its a dual 2 ohm sub run each coil on each channel. 1 coil-1channel. the other coil-the other channel. amp should run fine may run a little hot since it will be doing all it can do at a safe ohm load. just make sure it is mounted in a well vented area. should be safe.

Installing two amps


No, thats what you don't what to do. Even if you have 2 matching amps you don't do that. Every amp puts out different, and for 2 subs, you want to play at the the same time. If your only running 2 10's, I personal would just run the alpine (it's a mono amp made especially for subs) thats plenty for what you have. make sure you bridge them to get the full response. And your other amp i would use for your highs or mids, but run it @ stereo , which is 300 w @ 4 ohms. (Note: 600w @ 2ohms would be bridged and would play in Mono)

Building Competition stereo's is a big hobby of mine.

Amp keeps shutting off


you dont have it bridged right your dropping your ohms down way to low.. when you go to bridge your amp you have a negative and a positive on your amp thats it i have an alpine v-power mrp-m350 i think there identical should be but anyways you have to buy a Y splitter there RCA JACKS its has the 2 ends that plug into your amp than ties into a single one its a male or female adapter the place were your gonna get it w know the trick of these amps when bridging is only keep your left channel cable plugged in to your cd player i think its white colored dont plug the other one in rap tape around it or get a rubber cap and put over it.. run your RCA cables to your location of amp location and do the same just tie that into your left channel and tape or get a rubber cap to put over the other one i wish i could draw you a diagram of it hard to explain when typing it if you have a cell phone or house phone i would prefer you calling me from a cell so i dont get charged a fortune my cell number is 1814-594-2667 call me i will get it working for yeah hope to hear from you soon my name is Brad

Wiring my subs to my alpine mrv-1000


did you read your instruction manual. does it says "it could be bridged to other amp"?. you can't make a bridge to amplifier that is not bridgeable. bridging an amp is a way which it is made through transistor type ampilfier by bridging more transistor inside and more voltage is required for bridging.
I don't know if we could do to an IC type amplifier. ask an experts about bridging IC types how to bridge maybe they know how.
and if you had an successful bridging, you may have a problem through your speakers, they may hit hard but you will experience some errors through your speakers and easy to worn.

Alpine mrp-350 amp


1) If you bridge on a non bridged amp your sound will be horrible as they sine waves comming out of the two teminals will be different... I suggest removing the bridge. 2) The gain knob is to adjust when the amp will reach its max volume with respect to the sterio;s volume. 3) the LP filter is a Low Pass filter and its purpose is to eliminate the higher frequencies that do not sound all the well when played over subwoofers.
