Question about Car Audio & Video
Yes it will drive the subs. The one thing you need to know is what type of sound you're looking for. If you're looking for a crisp clean sound. Then you need to turn the games all the way down turn your volume up at the volume level that you think you'll be listening to it at and crank up the games until you reach distortion which is called clipping at that. Turn it back until the clipping stops and that should be optimal too. Most car audio shops will tune a vehicle for next to nothing just so they can get in your car and crank on it good luck
A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if answer is helpful for your question. THANK you and GOD BLESS

I'm a bit confused. For Alpine amps, the "M" prefix is for monoblock (aka single channel) amps and the "F" prefix is for multichannel amps. The only M550 I find is an MRD-M550, which is a monoblock, not a 4 channel like you say.
Unfortunately, I can't give you accurate help until we know weather it's truly 1 channel or 4 channel. Then I'll be glad to help!

It is possible that you are not providing enough current to the amp. It will go into protect mode if the current sags. What do you have running as a power cable. And also, your ground should be just as big and bonded very well to the body.

SOURCE: best amp for Kicker Sub
The Kicker 08ZX400.1 would be a great amp for your subwoofer. It will work into a 4ohm load with no problems.
But you can buy an amp with more power, looks better, has a smaller footprint, and cost less than the 400.1. I'd look at the Alpine MRP-M500. Take a look at it here at Crutchfield. The M500 is also easy to install, runs cool, and is very efficient.
Hope this helps.

you blew a voice coil or two if its a dvc. all youll see is the copper winding is a blueish in color because its burned and could not carrie the singal ...just take it apart ..cut the top all the way around and same on the bottom on the holder its what stops the sub from coming.to far out. then pull it out..
