As far as i know, nobody stocks or sells replacement cases for this amplifier, your best bet would be to search for a good dead one on ebay or somewhere similar... failing that, you can take the case apart and use an aluminum or metal paint to repaint it after sanding it. the reason for using a metal paint is that most regular paints will have an unwanted insulating effect and not allow the case to perform its intended purpose, giant heatsink. you can also try to use metal polishes or an extremely fine grit sand paper (1000-2000 grit) to remove any scuffs and polish it at the same time, but this will remove any factory paint. i believe krylon or one of the other brands makes a metal tint paint that is translucent, i have used it to color match amps to cars and it seems to work well. it can be found at just about any napa or other automotive shop and i believe it is intended for wheels, bumpers, etc.

hope this helps,
trin

How do I bridge this amp to run a single sub?


  • To bridge 1 sub with a Alpine MRV-100M amp you run the negative and positive wires coming from the speaker to the outside terminals on the AMP respectively.

The protection light comes on when I turn it on.


Check your ground wire. It should be solidly connected to the vehicle chassis in a a paint-free location. Also make sure the speaker leads aren't touching each other at the input on the amp. Then make sure your live power wire has a good connection to the battery and the amp. Finally, check the speaker leads along their entire length, and make sure they are not touching the vehicle chassis.

How much is this mrv t320 amp and is it good for a 12 p3 rockfordfosgate?


If the Alpine is run bridged at a 4 ohm impedance then yes this would be fine. The amp is 400 Watts x 1 at 4 ohms. The P3 ha a 500 Watt rms rating. Just verify the impedance of your speaker. If you have a DVC 4 ohm speaker if wired in parallel you would present a 2 ohm impedance to the amp, that is bad. What is the impedance of your speaker?

Alpine mrv-f545 powers up but no power going to the channels


I suppose you checked all the usual suspects? Fuse, Ground, and Remote turn on?
Now if memory serves me isn't that an amp that has a digital display on the top? If so you have to scroll thru the menu items and see if it is on low pass or even off? The gains are tricky because they get louder with less dbs. but check the outputs.
if all else fails it's probalby bad.

MRV - 1507 Question ...


The MRV-1507 is a two channel amplifier, below I've pasted important info from the manual:

Battery Lead (Sold Separately)
Be sure to add a 80 amp fuse as close as possible
to the battery’s positive (+) terminal. This fuse will
protect your vehicle’s electrical system in case of a
short circuit. If you need to extend this lead, the wire
gauge should be AWG8 or larger.
MRV-1507 ... 80A amp fuse

Power Output: RMS Continuous Power (at 12.0V, 20 Hz to 20
kHz)
MRV-1507
Per channel into 4 ohms ......................... 150W, 0.08% THD
Per channel into 2 ohms .......................... 300W, 0.3% THD
Bridged into 4 ohms ................................ 600W, 0.3% THD

Alpine mrv-t757


Hi Big Nick,

 

Sounds like you have got almost all the good out of those Subs. You can find the screws you need at almost any hardware store or Auto parts store. The light is becase you are dloading the amp with low OHMS.  You may need use one channel and Run the wiring like written blow to get the power problem to disappear.

 

S1+ = Kicker comp cvr sub coil 1 positive

A+ = Amplifier Positive output.

 

 

A+ to S1+

S1- to S2+

S2- to A-
