I have an alpine cda9831 unit with 10" subs. I have an alpine v power m500 independently running them. The subs will randomly cut off and on and the wires to the head unit have been checked for loose...

so you have already ensured that there are no crossed/loose wire strands.

you are running 2 subs off a single alpine mono amp.

if subs are 4 ohms apiece, you should be fine. if you have 2 ohm subs, or you have dual voice coil subs and you are running all the voice coils parallel, then there is your problem. you can have a maximum of a 2 ohm (2x4 ohm speakers= 2 ohms.) load with that amp.

ensure that the subs are 4 ohms apiece, and that you are not using dual voice coils. if the subs have 2 inputs (dual voice coils) then only use 1 input apiece.

if this is already taken care of, then your amp is defective.

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

I would like know whether a sony xplod subwoofer can be connected to my alpine car audio system! xplod sub woofer is 1100 watts.

Deffinitely but wired directly would be pointless, the Alpine's internal amp is way to weak to get the best out of the sub. You need an amp, minimum 300w and bridge the outputs to give all the power to sub preferably switched to low-pass (most amps will have a high / low pass switch)

CDs and Ipod wont play with Alpine CDA-9885

The Alpine has two tigger wires when it turns on. One is an AMP TURN ON wire (blue/white) and a PWR ANT wire (blue) and that wire only comes on when using the radio or an optional HD radio unit ... When it was installed/connected . someone hooked your amp turn on wires for your "full range amps" to the PWR ANT wire. And the sub amp trigger is either hooked correctly to the AMP TURN ON WIRE or somewhere else, it probably shouldn't be... Check it. Amp triggers should all be to the blue/white wire from your alpine. Warning: Alpine trigger wires, are very easy to mess up they supply a very limited amount of power.

No sound to the in car speakers from my alpine cda-9827 cd player

What kind of car did you install this in? Did it have a factory radio in it? If I had to take a guess I would think that there is a factory amp that you may have hooked the blue wire from the alpine deck to. If this is the case when you switch to CD the alpine deck turns off the power to the power antenna lead(blue wire) and thus your factory amp. If this is the case hook the factory amp turn on to the blue and white wire and you should be good to go.

Make certain that each ouput channel from the unit is driving no more that 4 ohms each. If you have more than one speaker attached to an output then be sure they are wired in series NOT parallel. Two 4 ohm speakers in series is an 8 ohm load and the same two speakers in parallel is a 2 ohm load. If the speakers are dual voice coils then you must treat each voice coil as if it were another speaker when it comes to wiring.

Make Sure the remote wire is connected from the radio to the amp, its normally a blue wire. Here is a picture of what the setup should look like.
