Alpine Authorized Online Dealer

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 Alpine MRP-M500 mono amplifier drives your subwoofer system with up to 500 watts RMS — enough to satisfy the hungriest bass setup. The low-pass filter puts you in command of the frequencies that reach your subs, while the variable bass boost is armed with plenty of low-end punch. A subsonic filter prevents wasted energy by eliminating ultra-low bass, putting all the power where you need it.

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.

Note: Sorry, Crutchfield cannot ship Alpine products to Guam or Puerto Rico.

  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

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.

Alpine MRP500

Written By Mike, Kent Island, Maryland on Monday, June 08, 2015

I've had this amp for 4 years now, never once has it overheated or had 1 single problem. I first had 2 10" alpine type E in a slant box in my s10 extreme single cab, it was the loudest system I've ever heard and won the subwoofer competition in Ocean City Maryland 2 years in a row competing against much more powerful systems. Since selling my truck I had it powering a fusion powerplant 12" in my scion tc rs 5.0, it hit incredibly hard like set off alarms. Now its hooked up in my Lexus is300 powering a 12" JBL since my fusion blew after 5 years, still hits incredibly hard with not 1 single problem. Best amp I've ever had and will never buy anything other than this line for amps. Ive driven cross-country with the bass pounding for 10+ hours solid and never once has it been anything but excellent.

Pros: Amazing power that works with any set up, great value, the most reliable amp Ive ever encountered.

Cons: None

Good quality amp overall

Written By Snacks, Pennsylvania on Monday, February 02, 2015

I have this wired to the alpine swr-12d2.. The person I bought it from had the sub wired to the amp at 1 ohm. I ran it like that for about a day, and it really really hits at 1 ohm, but it's not stable, and would shut off at a high volume before the bass would even really start. So, being that I have a dvc 2 ohm sub, I can't wire this for the full 500 watts rms at 2 ohm, so I unfortunately had to wire it down to 4 ohms, which doesn't sound nearly as good at all. It doesn't "pound" or "slam" at 4 ohms like some say, not even close, and everything else in the car is Alpine also. I would recommend this, but not if you're gonna run it at 4 ohms. At 4 ohms, you miss out on alot of power. If you're planning on buying this amp, make sure you have 2 svc 4 ohm subs, or 1 dvc 4 ohm, so you can wire it down to 2 ohms to unleash this things full 500 watts rms potential. Also, it only accepts up to 8 gauge wiring, so if you have anything bigger installed in your vehicle like I do, you need spade connectors at least, or the distribution blocks. Overall though, it's a very solid good quality amp, and it's easy to install.

Pros: Good quality, easy to install and set-up, and it doesn't get hot or overheat at all.

Cons: The amp only accepts 8 awg wiring, which will be a pain to the normal everyday person if you don't have the right tools or accessories to hook it up.

Awesome Amp

Written By DerekG, Chicago, IL on Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This sub is a must have for those who desire just a little added depth to their music.

Simply put, it is easy to install and adjust for premium sound. The appearance is phenomenal and quickly turns into a show piece. I plan to order a 4ch Amp for the interior speakers and will be choosing Alpine as well. The two next to each other really will create a beautiful pair.

One item that could potentially be upgraded was the terminal for the main battery wire. The manual indicates that a 4AWG wire is recommended and I used a 6AWG obtained from a spare cut off the local hardware store. When going to install the wire onto the Amp terminal it became very difficult to do so. The terminal is quite small when trying to push the strands into place and crimp down on the terminal screw to keep them solidly in place.

Other than that one issue, which may have been more of installation issue on my part, this amp is extremely easy to use and I highly recommend it!

Pros: Easy Installation, Easy Adjustment, Value, Quality, Wonderful Sound

Cons: Terminal for Battery Wire too small

Excellent Amp

Written By BigSHug825, Manassas, VA on Monday, January 13, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a fantastic amp. Coupled with my 8 inch JL Audio Sub it provides a warm, round sound while still providing a powerful punch. It's also pretty. I have two very minor complaints. 1) the plastic around the screw holes is a little weak, so be careful not to tighten the screw to the point of cracking the plastic. 2) The rage of the LPF leaves a tiny bit to be desired, but I knew that at purchase.

Pros: Warm, round sound without sacrificing power. Easy to install/ connect. It's pretty.

Cons: plastic screw holes are a little weak.

Written By Justin G., Murfreesboro, TN on Thursday, January 09, 2014

I am happy with the amp. My plan was to install under the front seat, but it is so small that I had room to install under the back seat of my extended cab truck along with my box. It is driving two 10" speakers, wired in parallel. I am pleased with the clean sound that I am getting from my budget subwoofer setup. This amp gives a lot of bang for the buck.

Pros: Small footprint. Bang for the buck

Cons: None, yet.

This amp is a nice quality amp. For the price, you can't beat it. I have this coupled with the 10" Polk DXI subwoofer. I mounted this to the back fold down seat of my 2010 Malibu. This is also hooked to my factory stereo using the speaker level inputs. The only think I wish it had was the remote bass control knob. I have also replaced all my speakers with Infinity's. I'm thinking about buying the Alpine four channel amp like this one to power these.

Pros: Price, Quality,

Cons: No remote bass knob

This is my third mono amp in the same truck and in the same power class. This is the first to dim my lights when it hits with the truck running (might need a cap with this one). It is impressive for $149. I have it wired to a JL10w3v3-2 pushing all 500 watts and it barely gets warm. I also have an Alpine mono amp in my wife's car that is about 15 years old and it still works great. They build quality amps.

I actually purchased two of these amps to push two 12" subs in my GMC Yukon. I found that one amp was all the "clean" power needed wired parallel to push both subs. These amps are pushing the power indicated and more. The sales associate I spoke with suggested sending the other one back but I will keep it for my son's truck. Again awesome service and value from a great company that's been around since I was a teen

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed this amp in a 2012 ford f-150 super crew. The amp is pushing a phoenix gold 10" sub in a custom ported enclosure mounted under the driverside rear seat. The amp is mounted on the floor next to the sub box under the passenger side of the rear seat. This amp was an upgrade from the old mrp-m450 which was 400w rms @ 2ohms. The one hundred watts rms made a world of difference being the sub is a 500w rms @ 2ohms rated sub. The sub hits very clear and deep. i have that set paired with a mrp-f300 pushing 4 memphis 5x7" coax. door speakers. it is all coming off of the factory deck w/ line converters. For the price, size, and power you can not beet this amp nor the mrp-f300 trust me i shopped!!! Also just a little tip that i got from Crutchfield, if you are installing an aftermarket amp and you are looking for a way to hook up the remote wire you and get yourself a "add a fuse" or "add a circuit" locate a fuse in you panel that only turns on with the ignition and install it there and replace you fuse into the adaptor. Once installed you can use the wire that comes off the adaptor and run it to the remote on your amp. Thanks again Crutchfield your where a big help!!

Pros: good strong power

Cons: will not accept 4ga. power and ground so you will have to find some clips or just trim the wire to get a good fit

Bought this for two kicker 12" cvr's running at 2 ohms each. I was trying not to spend a lot on a sub setup so these two things were perfect. This amp gives enough power plus some in case i get new subs in the future. Ran them in a series and it works as good as the subs possibly can. They rms at 150 each so of course I turned the gain down a little.

Pros: Easy to set up, slick, solid, powerful, great for my setup

This was the perfect amp to power my single Rockford Fosgate P2 10" sub. And for the price, there was no other amps out there that put out the same amount of power and equal in quality to Alpine, for the price.

Pros: Price

Cons: None

Awesome Product

This is a great amp for the price. Pushes my Sundown SA-12 like there's no tomorrow. Amp gets hot, alt
