Alpine V-Power MRV-M500 Car Amplifier - 1 Channel - Class D

Model: MRV-M500 UPC: 793276012401 Item: 156468

The Alpine MRV-M500 digital subwoofer amplifier is designed to mix both power and small size. It does it quite well, too. The amplifier has enough juice to power just about any subwoofer that you throw at it (it's also stable down to 2 ohms) and is small enough that it doesn't eat too much into your available space in the car. Perfect harmony, I think.

Alpine MRV-M500 Features:

  • From Alpine's V-Power line
  • Monoblock digital amplifier
  • 300 watts x 1 @ 4 ohm
  • Option to add a RUXKNOB for remote subwoofer control

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 dont 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.

Remote Bass Level Adjustment

The MRV-M500 and MRV-M250 mono models are compatible with the RUX-KNOB remote bass knob (sold separately). Use the RUX-KNOB to conveniently adjust bass levels from your dash.

My amp won't work, the light on the top blinks red like its a security issue. How do I bypass default security block?
Th the Enforcer on Aug 2, 2017
  Your amp is probably bad, or you have a bad speaker. That light is the amplifier protection light, not a default security block, as there is no such thing on this amp. Please unhook your speaker, turn the key to the vehicle off , wait 30 seconds, back on. If the red light is still on, the amp is bad. If the light is blue, then you have a bad speaker.
