Head Unit cuts out at high (ish) volume...Help!!

Ive got a bit of a problem, got a 2001 BMW e46 with an Alpine head unit and I did have a sub and amp. Ive got a problem where when you turn the vloume up to a certain level, when I had the sub it was anything past 19, or in a really bass'y tune somtimes lower the head unit would cut out, the screen goes blank and it resets itself with hte volume set to 0. Id been told this could have been due to bad earth on the sub. Ive since taken the sub out temporarily as im planning an upgrade and now without the sub I have the same problem but with the volume at only 15 which isnt overly loud...

I have no idea what it could be, ive got an adapter converting the BMW adapter to iso and then another adapter inbetween that to power my nokia bluetooth car kit and provide the ability to use the tel mute lead, im assuming this has nothing to do with it. The head unit has done it since day 1 and my previous kenwood head unit didnt do it. Its driving me nuts, do I have a faulty head unit or some funny wiring, ive had it all out and put it all back together again a couple of times to check the wiring etc.

The only think im not sure of is when you receive the standrd wiring loom for the head unit you have the yellow and red wires which are bullet connectors, ive got these going to red to red and yellow to yellow, does this have something to do with it? In my old car which was an astra I had to reverse these for the head unit to remember your settings each time you took the key out the car.

Can someone please shed some light on my problem!!

How to install an Alpine DVD unit into my BMW E46 M3 convertible


Providing it fits the aperture properly the only thing you may need is a special jumper cable harness that links the BMW euro standard harness to your player. Its possible the harness is right anyway but be prepared.

Alpine 9845 cde head unit car stereo i Cannot figure out how to access the Fader not the balance,altho i havent seen that function either. ive been to the alpine site and they dont even mention it. im sure...


Press the Rotary encoder (CDE-9845/CDE-9843
only) or press MODE (CDE-9841 only) repeatedly
to choose the desired mode.
Each press changes the modes as follows:
BASS → TREBLE → SUBWOOFER* → BALANCE → FADER
→ DEFEAT → VOLUME → BASS
BASS: -7 ~ +10
TREBLE: -7 ~ +7
Subwoofer : 0 ~ +15
Balance : L15 ~ R15
Fader : R15 ~ F15
Defeat : ON/OFF
Volume : 0 ~ 35

How do i get my Alpine CDA 9885 head unit out to fit a sub???


Remove the face, and trimring plastic.
There are slots on either side that you put the Alpine unlocking keys into (came with your headunit new) then slide the chassis out.
If you don't have keys - you can use a small allen wrench - or buy them at best buy etc.
A local alpine dealer will probably let you borrow his keys as a good business practice.

Subs cut out at low volume no matter the settings


I'm not a complete audio expert but it sounds like somethings over heating or you have a blown out put bridge.

Connect alpine 7874 to alpine powered sub


You need to run the RCA cables from the head unit to the sub for the audio signal, and possibly a turn on wire (the blue one on the back of the head unit), unless the sub has an automatic power feature.

The sub also needs power and ground wires attached, but those do not connect to the head unit. Power should be run directly from the battery with an inline fuse, and ground should go to the nearest good ground point (Trunk latch, seat bolt, etc).

Cuts out at higher volume


Your amp might now have enough power to push the subs or you need to get a better amp kit that will deliver the power the amp needs to operate at a high spl lvl

If this occurs with the head unit plugged directly into the amp (no signal processors inline, you probably have open shields on the head unit.

To check the shield ground, disconnect all RCA cables from the head unit and measure the resistance between the RCA shield on the head unit and the case of the head unit. It should read ~0 ohms.

Alpine MRP-M650 : Power LED turns on but no sound. All the connections are made. Subs have been tested on another amp.


is the remote lead properly connected to the head unit? if the power led is on then the power cable and earth must be good, check the remote lead 2 your head unit first, if thats all good try looking at the amp to see whether theres a small switch to adjust the output going to the subs, if its very low or right off then nothing will be going through to the subs. if its on high and fine it only realy leaves the neg and pos inputs from the amp 2 the subs.

cheers, adam

Yes, I'm sure Alpine will sell you another face but there is still the option of repairing the broken face at a good repair shop. Of course getting a new face is the easiest (read most expensive) way to get you going again.
