Alpine MRD-M300 Car Audio Amplifier - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


Make sure your safety mode is off. Go to mode 9 and ENT and make sure it is off. If it still dont work you proabably have bad RCA wre or speaker wire. Hope this helps!

Hello jreinhard623,

Check the speakers and wiring by substituting a known good speaker and check the amp inputs and RCA cables. Also make sure that the input gain and other controls are set properly. If there's still no sound, the amp itself is probably defective.

you need to make sure that you ground wire is no longer than 9 inches and a heavy enough wire for the wattage of the amp

There are a few things you should check:

Check that you have the correct fuse on your power cable. If it is allowing too much current, the protection feature of the amp will kick in. Similarly if the resistance is too high, there will not be enough current to power the amplifier.

You may also want to check the earth/ground cable to ensure that it has a good connection.

Try increasing the gain slightly on the amplifier (not too much or you will blow something). This will mean that you don't have to turn the head unit volume too high to get a loud output.

Nice amp BTW.

Hello svjonny13,

Excessive current draw can be caused by a short in the wiring, especially the output. Also, an amp may draw excessive current when operated into a lower impedance load than it can handle.

Too low of a supply voltage may result in the amp drawing excessive current, especially when operated at or near it's rated output. Voltage multiplied by the current equals watts. So if the amp is trying to produce X number of watts, the lower the voltage, the more current it needs. A power wire that is too small or too long may have too high of a voltage drop. A high resistance in the ground connection can also result in a significant voltage drop. Again, too small, too long, loosely fastened, or perhaps corroded. I'd check all wiring

Internal component failure can also cause excessive current draw. In that case, the amp needs service.

Hope this helps.

No sound is produced. ? The output disable mode is turned on. ? Refer to the instructions at ?Output Disable Mode? to turn the output disable mode off.

Hello christheline,

First make sure that the amp is powering up properly and that the input and subwoofer(s) are connected.

Check that the amp is not in "safe mode".

1. Press the MODE button.
Press the UP or DOWN button until “9” is displayed.
2. Press the ENT button.
3. Press the UP or DOWN button until “9-1” is displayed.
4. Press the ENT button.
5. Use the UP and DOWN buttons to turn safe mode ON.
6. Press the ENT button.

If this does not work, either the input from the head unit, the subwoofer(s), or the amp itself is probably defective.

Hope this helps.

More power. get a 0 gauge power wire that will help. also try a gel cell battery as opposed to a liquid one. other than that if you really want more punch try buying a bigger amp. Or maybe the issue is not your amp at all it could be the subs you are running and the type of box. Not all boxes are intended for all applications.

if the amp doesn't play anything but comes on you probably don't have an input signal try to get a different input signal

I fixed it. Believe it or not, it was a fuse. I looked at them all and they did not look blown. So I got mad and replaced the remote wire and the fuses. And when I put in the last fuse it was fine. Apparantly from diligent research, fuses can look ok but have issues with soldering problems. Thanks peeps.

Appears to be an issue with current. Is the speaker the correct impedance for the amplifier ? Have you confirmed there are no short circuits in the wiring ? I'm not familiar with this particular product,

The alpine catalogue gives recommended amp/speaker combos. If you don't have an aplpine sub, then look at the specs and find a similar one. You may be trying to load the amp too heavily and it will protect itself.

i have lost the instruction manual for my alpine v12 mono power amplifier mrd-m300 could you send me a print out of it by any chance. Without it i am unsure of the controls on the unit thanks.

E-3 The amplifier has been shut- down due to excessive current. Find and eliminate the cause of the excessive current, then turn the power off then back on from the remote control unit.
