Question about Alpine Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I recently installed the Alpine iDA-X100 model and I am having difficulties with my sub and amp. It works perfectly fine when it's on radio mode, however as soon as I switch it to Ipod it turns my amp off. Wondering if it could be an internal unit problem or a mistake in my hook up?

Hi,

Initially, determine if the remote trigger of the amp is present on both instances; radio and iPod. This would be the blue or blue/white wire from head unit and would read +12VDC when the head unit is turned on. Otherwise, if +12 is present during radio mode but absent during iPod, then it might be that the internal switching would need looking into or a short temporary fix would be to wire a separate power on toggle switch for the amp.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

What box should i use for alpine swr-12d2


What size box does this sub need in a sealed box & a ported box. If you have room use a ported box that fits your subs. Probox & other brands may have the perfect box for them. I would tune the box to 40hz if you like loud tight bass.

Alpine sub works for a bit then stops.


the amp maybe going into protect mode. it may be seeing a fault internal and causing this. so i would have to say check all the wiring over and if that is okay you will need to take the amp for repair

'04 Nissan Sentra S factory installed subwoofer wiring diagram


A FACTORY INSTALLED AMP/SUB WILL BE WIRED INTO THE VEHICLES FACTORY WIRING JUST AS ANY OTHER COMPONENT. YOU WOULD THINK THAT YOU WOULD FIND THICK POWER AND GROUND CABLES ALONG WITH RCA CONNECTIONS AS YOU FIND WITH MOST INSTALLS.NOT THE CASE HERE.YOU MUST FIND THE HARNESS THAT HAS THE POWER AND GROUND CONNECTIONS ALONG WITH THE INPUT WIRES FOR SOUND. YOU MUST OBTAIN A VEHICLE SPECIFIC WIRING DIAGRAM THAT HAS THE WIRING FOR THE SOUND SYSTEM PACKAGE THAT CAME WITH YOUR VEHICLE. YOU MUST THEN WIRE IN THE BLUE REMOTE TURN ON LEAD FROM YOUR UNIT TO TURN THE AMP AND SUB ON WITH YOUR RADIO AND NOT YOUR CAR BATTERY. YOU WILL ALSO NEED TO FEED SOUND TO THE AMP USING ONE OF THE REAR OUTPUTS FROM YOUR RADIO.

check the amp. the "switches" gain,bass boost...etc they might be over powering your subs and heating them up. if those are fine then you mite want to try your subs on another amp...it migt just be that the subs are easily over heating.

Hello i just recently bought alpine speakers for my eclipse 2003


mostly because the subs in the back are probley using more amps than the ones in the front in the front should be used mostly for vocals and your bass in the trun so maybe trying to unhook the ones in the front from the sub and just leave then hooked up to the cd player where you can hear the vocals really good and leave your subs in the back hooked up to the amp

I just had an alpine iDa-x200 interface unit installed in my car. It connected to my IPod fine the first day. Now it says "no usb device" I've checked the connections and they're fine. Why doesn't it...


Ive had the same problem with pioneer. I reset the unit and it worked once again but wasnt perfect. Id call Alpine cust. service tech to see about any "known" issues.

Bass speaker start up noise


Hello anne845,

It sounds like the installer wired the amp remote turn-on terminal to an "accessory" lead in your vehicle. Many stock radios do not have a dedicated amp turn-or lead and the alternative is to connect the amp to a switched power source (ignition or accessory). This means the amp turns on whenever you turn on the vehicle ignition, often resulting in a thumping from the subs. It is a perfectly satisfactory alternative, and will not damage either the amp or the sub. But it's irritating.

If the thumping is objectionable, have your installer wire a SPST (Single Pole, Single Throw) toggle switch inline with the turn-on wire. The switch should be mounted so it is accessible by the driver, and whenever you turn on the radio, turn on the toggle switch.

Hope this helps.
