Question about Soundstorm Force F2800 Car Audio Amplifier

Sound Storm F-2800 Amp

I am considering the purchase of the F-2800 amp for my work car which is all factory speakers except the Alpine head unit and I just can't justify spending too much money on it for the use. So I just want to add some low end to the system but also give myself the room for some upgrades for the mid and high ends if I choose to in the future. I'm uncertain about the lower end brands and am very open to some suggestions for other amps around or under the $300.00 mark for the amp itself. As of right now I have picked out two Audiobahn AW1251T 12" subs in a bandpass box, but I?m open for any suggestions there too (Something around the $250.00 mark for the pair). Thanks in advance for any suggestions!!!

You can you own sound but you have to eliminate the rare channels and use them for your self to conect the Subs and other stuff. Take care for the Power rating and just let the music play!!! Patrick

No sound from amp when amp is powered up, whats wrong? Alpine m-1000 wih alpine deck. Was told something about resetting it but don't know, please help?

There is a number of things that can cause no sound from the amp.

Check to make sure your RCA's are plugged in to the amp.
Make sure the ground and remote are not touching on the amp.
This will cause your head unit to gray out in some areas.
Verify, your subwoofers are in working order.
Test another pair of speakers on your amp to make sure.
If those speakers work, your subwoofers are fried or have come unhooked inside your subwoofer enclosure.
Make sure you have not set the head unit to Surround Sound if you have a DVD player in your vehicle.
This should be set as passive.
Make sure your gains aren't turned down on the amp.
Even if there is a light on the top of the amp, the fuse might have blown.
Make sure a fuse on the amp didn't blow. This will in some cases cause the amp to go into protect and no bass.

What kind of wire do I need to install Infinity reference series 605cs with a JL Audio 10" sub and a Alpine Flex 2 amp? Can I use my factory head unit?

You can use the factory speaker wiring for the Infinity speakers you should purchase a amp kit which will give you everything to install the amp. See site below
Well that all depends on the current audio system you have now is it just a basic or a premium factory system with a factory amp. Honestly you would get a better and cleaner sound if you change the factory head unit to a after market one which has preamp feeds and the higher the preout volt the better. Just make sure it is compatible with the amp volts input (Example 4v to 250mv) If you use the factory headunit you would have to by a high to preout adapter it connects to the exsiting radios speaker leads, but like I said before change the head unit you won't be sorry. Do not forget if you change the radio you need a radio install kit and the wiring harrness which converts the two radio plugs so you don't cut them so down the road you can remove the after market radio and just replug the factory right back in.

I have an alpine head unit and a kenwood 1000 watt amp. I have two 12" subwoofers hooked up to the amp and thats it. I got my tweeters, and door speakers powered by my head unit. The bass was cutting in...

your amp may have burned out or try checking the fuse in the amp and the car also your channels may be burned or you may jus have water damage to the amp

Hi, I've just install an alpine power amp with JL 10inch subwoofer, everything seems to be working properly except for the subwoofer

If you have the RCA's running from the head unit to the amp, and the speaker wires running to the speakers then you have it hooked up right. Now If you still don't have any sound then you need to look at the amp to make sure that you have a green light. Still I would use 8 or 10 gauge power wire and then the same for the ground wire, make sure that you have a good ground.

Alpine 9885 - no sound with cd's or ipod

have you fixed it yet? if not try this. your car probably has factory amplified speakers. hook up the remote wire AND the power antenna wire to the blue factory amp wire and it should work just fine

No sound from speakers after mra-f350 connected to alpine w205

Did you set the digital output to the on position on the bottom of the head unit?

You have to switch the head unit off then back on for it to recognize the position of the switch.

Alpine CVA-1004

lol i had the exact problem that you are having with my alpine. The solution is taking the blue cord that was inside the vehicle (forgot what cord it was) and actually connecting it with the other blue cord thats different makes the factory amp read the cd player and ta-da it works. crazy isn't it
