Question about Alpine MRD-M1005 Car Audio Amplifier
Hi guys i just got this amp attached to two 12 inch type r subwoofers. It lasted for about 10 minutes then went out and it says cur. Do you know what i can do?
U guys the cur stands for current witch means its starving for power so u could add a 2nd battery or upgrade ur alternator the battery doesent haved to be an expensive 1 just put a good strong batt in the trunk wire it in with ur wires u already have back there then run ur + and - straight off that batt and use atleast 4 guage trust what i say been in this game 10 yrs and this is how i feed 7 kids thanks

Be sure you havent already burned voice coils in the sub....id also reccomend only running one of those type rs in a ported box it will run one no problem without the CUR error

"CUR" basically means there is a short in the wire... i had that problem with the exact same amp... except mine kept cutting in and out and eventually just didn't get any power at all. use a voltmeter on your inline fuse on your power wire... my install kit came with an 80A fuse... what happens is if your amplifier draws enough amps... say 70-75... it will melt the connecters on the fuse but wont blow it... that was my problem... switched the fuse and everything worked fine... if thats not it, check your ground... or just make sure your wires arent fried. i have 6 gauge wiring for mine and it does just fine, 8 gauge should be changed for this amp.
