Alpine MRV-V500 5-Channel V-Power Digital Amplifier

Model: MRV-V500 UPC: 793276210722 Item: 166070

The MRV-V500 is the newest member to the Alpine V-Power family, but it has a strong heritage to benefit from. This digital amplifier is small in size and has enough channels to power speakers AND a subwoofer. Isn't that handy? Add an Alpine RUXKNOB to the equation and now you have subwoofer level control that's independent from the rest of your system. Again, handy.

Alpine MRV-V500 Features:

  • From Alpine's V-Power line
  • 5-channel digital amplifier
  • 40 watts x 4 and 150 watts x 1 @ 4 ohms
  • Add a RUXKNOB for remote subwoofer control

Product Information

Born Tough, Raised Strong

Tens of thousands have relied on V-Power amplifiers for dependable, quality power. Now in their fourth generation, V-Power amplifiers carry on this heritage and prove that playing strong never looked or sounded better. Yes, it is possible to improve upon a good thing.


Alpine MRV-V500 Digital Amplifier Highlights:

  • 60W x 4 + 250W x1 RMS (2Ω, 14V, ≤1% THD+N)
  • 40W x 4 + 150W x1 RMS (4Ω, 14.4V, ≤1% THD+N)
  • Same power in a 40% smaller chassis
  • Evolution to Class D digital platform
  • New snap-on terminal covers for easy installation


Alpine MRV-V500 Digital Amplifier Features:

Raising the Bar

  • The new V-Power products are now Class D digital amplifiers, resulting in a huge efficiency gain versus their predecessors without draining your battery or your pockets. Class-D provides continuous clean power to your speakers, operating at 80% efficiency far greater than conventional Class A or B amplifiers. Translation: Enjoy cleaner bass, even during extreme power demands.

Big Power, Small Package

  • V-Power amplifiers are known for their compact size, but don’t underestimate their power capacity. Although they have a 40% smaller footprint than their predecessors, they produce the same amount of power as before. Get the power you need, even if you have limited installation space.

Keep the Music Playing

  • The V-Power amplifiers provide reliable, stable thermal performance. They use a new, higher efficiency design to achieve non-stop music playback. A new circuit and heat sink design allows gradual thermal absorption and provides a gentle, almost undetectable power control.

Dual Feedback Modulation

  • Dual internal error correction technology – which had previously only been available in the PDX and X-Power amplifiers, is now integrated in V-Power mono amplifiers. The audio input signal is analyzed, compared, and corrected twice dynamically as the signal is processed through the amplifier. The result is amplifiers with the widest frequency response, higher damping factor, and lowest noise in its class.

Exceptionally Simple Sound Upgrade

  • The V-Power's 4-channel speaker level inputs connect directly to any head unit, without the need for external converters. This makes the V-Power amplifiers ideal for upgrading factory and aftermarket systems. The flush mount controls make for easy installation. The terminal covers conveniently snap-on without the need for additional tools, to protect the wiring connections while creating a clean, finished appearance.

Proven Power

  • Each V-Power amplifier comes with its very own birth-sheet. V-Power amplifiers are tested and documented to show their true actual output.
