Question about Alpine MRP-M450 Car Audio Amplifier
I currently have one Alpine Type E 10" subwoofer hooked up to a Alpine MRP-M450 mono amplifier using 10 awg wiring in my '07 Honda CRV LX. I am still using a factory stock deck. (No premium sound system initially)
It sounds like I'm not getting enough bass from it at all compared to a similar setup I had in my '04 Toyota Rav4 (got stolen) which had the same sub but connected to a lower rated amp, the Alpine MRP-M350. And that sounded great with plenty of bass. The CRV is a little bigger than the Rav4 but not by much.
So what should I do in this situation? Should I get a bigger subwoofer? (I am considering a Type R Alpine 12") or bigger amp? Is it the gauge size powering the amp? (BestBuy associate said 10 awg was sufficient, I found out that online sources say that 8 awg is recommended), or is it my deck?
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Its prolly the deck, did you try turning the alpine's input gain controls up...
its not the wiring, if the wiring was insuficient, it would just melt...
you might also see if you could adjust the bass frequencies or crossover frequency, the crv might just have a different resonant frequency then the rav 4
