Our take on the Alpine MRP-F600

by Buck Pomerantz
Alpine

My system has plenty of power. Who needs an amp?

You might think you don't need an amp because you have a 400-watt system in your car, or because your new stereo puts out 50 watts a channel. But those are peak wattage ratings, which may boil down to 15 or 20 watts per channel, using the more realistic RMS rating. An amp sends your speakers the power they need to deliver your music with clarity and impact, whether you're using factory speakers or high-performance components. And low-frequency reproduction requires lots of power, so an amp is an absolute must if you're adding a sub to your system.

V-Power amplifiers deliver the sound quality that made Alpine famous. Highly efficient power supplies housed in sleek black casings guarantee that these amps stand out in performance and appearance. The thermal management system dissipates heat and saves power, so your V-Power amp will run reliably for years to come.

The MRP-F600 4-channel amplifier sends 100 watts RMS to each of your front and rear speakers, or switches to 2-channel mode to power a pair of subwoofers. You can also switch to 3-channel mode, then power a subwoofer with 300 watts RMS while the other two channels power a pair of full-range speakers.

High- and low-pass filters put you in command of the frequencies that reach your speakers, while the bass boost is armed with plenty of low-end punch. Preamp- and speaker-level inputs allow you to connect this amp in almost any vehicle. Let a V-Power amplifier transform the sound of your car's audio system.

Highlights:

  • 4-channel car amplifier
  • 100 watts RMS x 4 at 4 ohms (150 watts RMS x 4 at 2 ohms)
  • 300 watts RMS x 2 bridged output at 4 ohms (4-ohm stable in bridged mode)

  • variable high-pass/low-pass filters (50-400 Hz, 12 dB/octave)
  • selectable bass boost (12 dB at 50 Hz)

Features

V-Power: Alpine's V-Power series amplifiers offer clean power output, clarity and detail at any volume level, and exceptional reliability. V-Power amplifiers feature rugged heat sinks that ensure optimum temperature and performance for non-stop output. The V-Power amplifiers are ideal for upgrading aftermarket or factory equipment and can be connected to just about any system. RCA and High-level inputs ensure easy installation, while flush mount controls make for an easy set-up. The V-Power amplifier also come with end caps that cover the inputs and connectors to create a clean, finished installation. In addition, variable crossover and Bass EQ functions provide flexible tuning possibilities for your car audio system.

Thermal Management: The amplifier utilizes rugged heat sinks and an extremely sophisticated thermal management processor to continuously monitor the amplifier's temperature, ensure nonstop output and stable, reliable performance.

Gain Controls: This amp has independent front and rear channel gain controls.

Crossovers: Both front and rear channels have independently selectable high-pass and low-pass variable 50-400 Hz crossovers with a slope of 12dB/octave. The crossovers can also be independently turned off for full-range operation.

Subsonic Filter: This amp utilizes a fixed-automatic 15Hz, 18 dB/oct subsonic filter to eliminate super low frequencies that can rob power from your amplifier and damage your speakers.

Bass EQ: The Bass EQ circuit provides a fixed boost of 12dB at 50 Hz for the rear channels only. The Bass EQ does not function when the amp's rear-channel crossover is set to "high-pass" operation.

Inputs: The amplifier offers both line-level and speaker-level inputs for 4 channels. The supplied speaker-level input harness allows you to connect this amplifier to a receiver without preamp outputs; aftermarket or factory.

Line Outputs: This amplifier has a pair of non-fading stereo RCA line outputs. You can use these outputs to daisy-chain another amplifier without having to run additional signal cables from the receiver.

Terminal Cover: The amp comes with two plastic covers that protect and insulates the RCA, power, and speaker connections. Four supplied machine screws attach the cover to the amplifier.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Ya, I agree with the others...this amp is sweeeet. I had a budget to outfit my Tacoma so I used the F600 to power a pair of Infinity 6020cs 2 ohm components up front and bridged channels 3 & 4 to power a Pioneer TS- SW2541D 10" 4-ohm Shallow Component Subwoofer behind the back seat. I was cautiously optimistic but I was rewarded beyond my expectations...I love this amp!!

POWER!

Written By Bennyboy, Newark, NJ on Wednesday, May 07, 2008
 
This amp is great! Awesome power, very, very, clean power. Little, too no
distortion. First time I heard my new alpine type S speakers on this new
Alpine amp, I was very, impressed. I had good amps in the pass, but
not like this. Good job, once again Alpine.
