Overview

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.

Overview 500W RMS x 1 (2Ω, 14.4V, ≤1% THD+N) 300W RMS x 1 (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 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. Remote Bass Level Adjustment Remote Control Bass Knob 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.

  • Great amplifier
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Raroan - June 8, 2015

    This amplifier fits the need for the everyday car stereo enthusiast. The footprint of this amp is SMALL. I installed this under my driver seat and used the kicker 8 amp kit. Now before anyone criticizes this amp does ask for a 4 AWG kit and I spoke with a rep at Alpine who told me that the kicker 8 AWG kit is just fine for my purposes especially since I was installing it under my driver seat. My reason for installing it under my driver seat was A) I did not want any aftermarket items showing in my car B) this also shortened the power cable requirements thus allowing me to use the 8 AWG kit. This amp is a powering a JL Audio 8in W3 woofer. My car is 2013 Honda Accord EX-L V6 Coupe. I kept everything stock as far as head unit and stock amp which powers my Polk Audio DB series component and rears. They sound great using the stock amp but I am sure better if I used a more powerful/cleaner amp. The JL Audio sub is in a custom sealed box which is mounted under the rear deck with the original sub removed. The entire rear deck, top and underneath have been sound dampened, the entire trunk including the spare tire well, has been sound dampened. The draw is around 300W RMS and this has been a VAST sound improvement over the stock "premium" sound system. The Alpine M500 amp never even gets warm and this is running for long periods of time, installation was a snap only took 25 mins to install amp (if you know what you are doing and do your homework on where to run your wires). This amp is truly a winner.

  • Alpine Amp "Need I say more"
    Verified BuyerReviewed by simcha74 - June 21, 2013

    Seriously, this is my second Alpine amp and it is killing it! :) The amp pushes a 10" Alpine Type R, i picked up used from craigslist and it really hits and sounds like a 12" sub. The price was $199, but they matched an online price with crutchfield for $149, so you just can't beat that. They don't match all online prices only with their selected competition, but luckily I found one and saved $50. Get it, you will be very happy and by the way, I used to run the same amp a few years back on a 12" type R and that pounded so much that it was too much bass for my little vw bug that I owned. Cheers!

  • Not bad
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Kevin - October 15, 2015

    I like the amp but replaced a JBL amp because it failed. The JBL does have more power than the Alpine. I now have received the JBL back from warranty and both of them are now installed. If I had to pick or the other though it would be the JBL. Of the 5 amps in the car all but one are alpine which is never a bad bet.

  • Small footprint
    Verified BuyerReviewed by REYisKING - February 12, 2020

    Fits in small spaces. Provides solid power. Easy to install yourself. The optional volume knob is a must. Sounds really clean and looks clean.

  • Alpine what else can be said!
    Reviewed by Dragolith - August 27, 2014

    Alpine is a name you can trust, the deck in my truck has lasted 11 years and is Alpine and not once had an issue. This amp sounds great and for such a small footprint of a install it would fit under almost any seat, but it went under my trucks backseat! Only one issue i found, the Crutchfield website lists the amp able to handle a 1ohm load where Alpines does not show the spec so i sent a question to Alpine on Facebook to clarify the difference in data between the 2 sites!
