Question about Alpine MRA-F350 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

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

I just connected the alpine mra-f350 to my W205 head unit via the AI Net cable, then connected the power and speaker leads to the amp.  The amp powers up, but no sound will come out.   Tried to see if something had to be turned on / set on the head unit by going through the source menus, but nothing worked.   any idea what the problem could be?

    On the W205, there is a setting under SYSTEM - OPTICAL OUT, which the user guide says is the Digital Output.  It was set to ON.  So i tried to set it to OFF, set ACC to on, then set it back to ON, and repower, but still no sound.   Are you talking about another setting which is external on the unit?   I appreciate your help.

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.

    That's the switch I was talking about. Try to find a local Alpine dealer. Even if you didn't buy it from them, they should help.

My w205 screen was cracked and there are no controlling options. is there a way to fix the screen? Is the screen the problem? And does it have a remote control?


The only way to fix both your problems is to mail it into Alpine, the screen is laced in with ribbins and soldered by twelve tips on the circuit board. If you have years of electronic back ground you maybe able to fix the screen, the IR controller the remote maybe bad or the IR sensor is back in the head unit is a 3 pin item that maybe needs to be resoldered or a new one soldered in place of the defective one. I have the same unit and I havent had any problems?? How did you break the screen?

I have my cd changer (alpine) plugged into the input port via ai net cable and I have the output going to the alpine radio (cda 9886) via ai net cable. When I hit the source button everything comes up but...


One thing to verify is that the Ai-Net switch at the bottom of the radio is set to Norm and not the EQ position. And also gray Ai-Net connectors are for audio input and the black Ai-Net connectors are for audio output. It sounds like you have everything connected correctly and at least the Sirius is coming up. And I assume that the CD changer works when connected directly to the reciever so you know that it is working. I would suspect that there might be a problem with the Sirius reciever not allowing the communication signal to connect to the Alpine deck and in that case you would need to get a new reciever. You could check the Alpine radio settings and see if there is something that needs to be changed in order to allow the CD changer to work. If you disconnected the battery connection to the radio then it might have reset the settings to factory default. Otherwise it sounds to me like the problem is with the Sirius reciever.

The amp requires a compatible Ai-net Alpine head unit to operate it. I bought one too and didnt know this and im still trying to put all of the peices together to create a working stereo system without buying everything all over again.

No radio sound from my IVA-D310E


neither of those units use fibre optic cables! but it sounds like you puled out the antenna wire behind the head unit. if you try and search radio stations without the manual tune on and it keeps changing frequency on it and never stops then its the antenna plug.

Hooking the mra-f350 to my highs


You will only need to connect the door speakers to the MRA-F350. In short, the connections will be as follows:

Deck---->MRA-F350 amp---->Door speakers
...................................\---->Sub amp---->Sub(s)

Just make sure you use the optical digital output of the deck to connect to the optical digital input of the MRA-F350 amp, not the RCA preamp connections.

Alpine mra-d-550 car audio amplifier


Sorry man here's what i pulled from the internet- Crutchfield sells these:
Note: The MRA-D550 requires a compatible head unit for setup and control, it cannot be used without one. The current list of compatible head units includes (but is not limited to): IVA-D300, IVA-D310, IVA-D900, IVA-D901, DVA-9860, and DVA-9965.
