There should be a switch on the amp marked HPF / LPF / OFF check that it is on the LPF position for a subwoofer.

Speakers cutting in and out at high volume


The amp is going into protect on the two channels powering the speakers. Turn down the gain on those two channels. You also may want to consider crossing over the speakers a little higher than they are now.

The rating on those speakers are way too high. 6.5's and 6x9's will take 50-100 clean watts tops before they start to break up.

The best solution to get it perfect is....unplug the subs. Turn the gain on the speaker channels all the way down. Then turn up the deck 80% as high as it will go. Play a song. Then increase the gain on the amp until the speakers are as load as they go without distortion. Shut off the car, replugg in the subs and do the same thing. Gain on sub channels all the way down, deck then to 80%, find a bass heavy song, then turn gain up until subs become distorted. If you do this procedure your speakers and subs will be "gain matched" to the proper levels.

Good Luck

The recommended settings for a mofet car amp 50.4 , theres a few knobs not sure what they should be turned to


The gain knob is used to control how much the volume (output) of the amp increases with each increase in volume on the deck (installed in the dash). This is used to match speakers running of your deck. Other knobs are probably for a crossover (labelled in Hz). This controls what frequencies are passed to the speakers connected to the amp. A Highpass (HPF) crossover passes all frequencies above what the knob is set for. A Lowpass (LPF) pass all frequencies below what the knob is set for. A HPF is typically used when the amp is powering component or full range speakers to keep the ultra low frequencies (anything below 90Hz) from going to theses speakers. A LPF is used when the amp is connected to a sub. Subs dont handle higher frequencies very well.

Only fuse you need is the power wire leading to your aftermarket amplifier for te subwoofer. Which most likely you have too small of a gauge of wire and burned straight through it, and if you haven't, add a 40 amp fuse near the battery where your power cable is hooked up to. Also use a multimeter to test your power wire on amp, check the

Ok i got a mtx 12' 500 sub matched to a alpine mrd-m500 mono amp. The deck powers the 4 speakers, as i turn the volume up on my deck (alpine cde 100) the sub/amp cuts out at around volume 20-22 and E-3...


Sorry,after rereading your problem,I gave a wrong answer.Do you have the deck sub RCA pre-amps connected to the amp,then the wires from the amp to the sub?If you do,you need to check what the sub and amp are rated as such as,peak or rms.They are 2 completely different meanings.Greg

Hey I have an Alpine CDA-9851 CD Player and was wondering how to hook up my two 10" Kicker subs, since there is no subwoofer connection on the back of the player.


First to start you need an amp something that is a little stronger than your subs. What you want to do is 'T' off your speaker wires into RCA's to hook up into the amp. There is a device you can buy or you can cut some RCA cables. There are a few down sides to do it this way because as you turn up the volume the Subs will get louder and start to distort a lot faster than hooking up proper. The best way to do it is to get a deck with RCA sub outputs. Good Luck

The protection modes in these units ****. Most new units have them. What I do is turn down settings on deck and turn up amp as much as possible. Then the protection won't turn on because you won't have to turn it up as high.

I got the same problem since thair is no sub out for this deck


Hello livinglifeas,

You can connect the regular preamp outputs to a sub amp. Dedicated sub outputs will normally have a built-in crossover whereas the regular front/rear preamp outs will be full-range. Just make sure that the amp you use for your sub(s) has a "low pass" filter.

Hope this helps.

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.
