Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

My alpine keeps shutting down when the volume is turned up past 20. Plus I have no sound coming out of my subs. I tried switching rca cables. And I sent my amp off thinking it was my amp. Their is a little power to subs but not enough to get the subs to move but you can feel power in the subsif you touch them. If you turn it up past 21 max gain is 35 it clips out and turns back off and turns back on

So it turns off suddenly and then the next second it turns back on and starts playing

from that and personal expericance i belive that the radio system (radio and amp) is not reciving enough power

is this radio inside a car
if so what car

what i would do is attach bigger thicker wires to the positive and negative of the amplifier
direct from battery

positive of battery>>>> positive of amp
metal grounding point on car>>>>>> negative of amp
(do not use negative of battery use the metal of the car)

Amp shuts down under load - If I turn the volume from the head unit up past about 16 it shuts off. I've had it for a while and haven't had this issue until recently. Thanks!


If you added or changed speakers and the impedance (ohms) is not the same, it could overload the amp depending on which way the speakers are wired (parallel or in series).

Volume wont go past 50


this sytem is unable to go past 50 and because its only 80 watts it wont get louder.
80 watts is divided by all the speakers
so a 5.1 system gives 20 watts to the woofer and 15 watts to each of the other 4 speakers.
plus its in rms (root means square)
which means you loose some wattage in fricton so take another 25 to 50 % of the wattage.
so all this said you get what you pay for.

Can not turn the bass and treble up or down on my alpine CDA-9827


ok i cant see your entire question but to adjust bass and treble on an alpine, you see the knob (the one which u use to turn volume up and down), push it in (itll click) then a screen/textt will come up and say bass or an option once it says bass, turn the knob up or down, then press in again and it will say treble or fader or something else, once again, adjust it and keep pressing in the knob until u reach the volume again. does it work? is this what u wanted?

When volume is turned up the radio shuts off


Have you checked all of the connections on the speakers, stereo, etc. Being a marine CD player, the wires and connectors are exposed to more elements than a car CD unit. Check for corrosion and make sure that all the speakers are hooked up to the correct "+" and "-" terminals. Not sure if this will help, but thought I'd try. It does sound like a speaker connection problem.

Alpine CDA-9813 CD Player problem keeping the power stay on


i have that same problem. when i turn the volume up, it shuts off but comes back on right away. the only thing i can think of is i'm not running the constant power directly from the positive terminal on the battery (which is what is recommended). not sure if thats the solution but im gonna try and wire it right anyway...

Sound Issues


The player has a built in safety device which only allows it to turn up so high. It help to avoid burning out your equip ment. Best way is to put sound on one device 3/4 ways up and then use the other device for adjusting the volume from there.

For sound in one channel; either there is a wire unplugged or not getting a good contact, or the player is set for mono instead of stereo

Head Unit Shuts Off At a Certain Volume


check your ground, it could be that your antenna is the only source of ground, in which case the deck does not have enough power to stay on when it draws too much power. I've seen exactly what you are saying many many times. Ground it really reallly good.
