Replacement Amp
MICHAELOWEN on 02/06/2016 4 star rating

Great little amp. I had to exchange an original bose (fibre optic) amp in my Mercedes with a new amp as I replaced the OEM headunit. The bose amp had great sound and the Alpine matched it. Needed this amp to fit in the original amps space within a confined space, which it did so happily. Verdict: Great sound, smaller than most dims, and good price.

just putting a review on this amp, i sell alot of these in store depite not being alpines biggist fan so you i'll be as truthful as possible I like the idea that they have with this amp its compact and will happily run a full system and take up a very small space its more a mid range power amp in my opinion, i mainly use this amp for a customer who wants to improve sound in the car but not after a huge amount of volume i mean lets be blunt 1100 max shared over 5 channels is not going to give you massive volume but with the right speakers and subwoofer it will get you great sound quality last customer i fitted one of these for, mixed and matched everything to suit her needs and budget so brands were all different which is perfectly fine to do, it had pioneer tse components in front kenwood kfc ps range in the rear and the subwoofer was an 8" pink inphase box (wanted it girly) The whole set up sounded great nice highs and mids up front, hpf running on the rear and the sub had a nice kick which did surprise me looking at the outputs the amp gives she was happy with the amp and set up sorry for long read but i hope this helps only giving 4 stars as i do prefere the next model up to this one, but great amp for the money

  • Question: 19 August 2018
    Car: Vauxhall Astra - 2010>

    Hi, I was wondering if this would pair up ok with 4 Alpine SPG-17C2 2-Way Co-axial Speakers?

    Also, any pointers regarding enclosed Sub for this amp? I was thinking that the SBG-1044BR might be ok.


    You can use the MRV-V500 amplifier to power up the SPG-17C2. The SBG-1044BR or the SBG-144BR can be powered from it.

    Will this fit straight swap in a bmw 1 series e87? I'm looking at focal ifbmw components and swapping the subs for 8" Rockford fosgate. Will this do the job?


    Thanks for your question, this amp could work but would require fully wiring in with power, ground & remote cables, it would not be a straight swap.

    Would this sub work for a audio system with 2 tweeters, 2 mid range speakers and a sub with a wattage of 600-650 watts, not yet bought the components so have flexibility. Cheers

    Thanks for your question, the set up of this amp will run some decent component & coaxial speakers for the front & rear, 1100W divided between 5 channels is not going to give you massive power but enough to run speakers & a sub as you mentioned. I in doubt you could go for the next model up.
