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.

• The amplifier has been shutdowndue to excessive current. • Find and eliminate the causeof the excessive current, thenturn the power off.
Please Note: Underpowering subs can make your amp goes to protection.

When I hook my JL W7 sub to my alpine mrd m1005 amp the sub is pushed out and stays that way

Hello christensen7,

It sounds like there's DC current on the amp output terminals. Disconnect the sub and test the output with a multimeter. If there's DC there, most likely the amp is shorted internally and needs repair.

Hope this helps.

CUR display

Hello yte1771,

You can download the manual from Crutchfield.

The "CUR" display is an indication of excessive current and is most likely caused by too low impedance or a fault in the wiring or the amp itself. It's probably not your cap.

Hope this helps.

Alpine MRD-M1005 Subwoofer Amp Problem

He may be right! You might try finding a new source of contact for your ground cause it may not be sufficent enough to ground to, also make sure that no wires from the back of your radio have any wires sticking out touching other interfering things that could possibly be causing the noise

Help!!!!

I would say any decent pair of 12" or 15" (single 4 ohm voice coil) subs that can handle at least 500W rms would work. The rest is going to be based on cost, type of box, type of music, etc.
