What is the voltage of a remote turn on wire for an Alpine CDA-9831?

You'll have less chance of blowing your subs with an amp that outputs more power. What damages voice coils the quickest is clipped or distorted audio. A 1000 watt amp running at 10% will have far less chance of damaging your speakers than a 100 watt amp running flat out. I have heard that a 1000 watt speaker can be destroyed by a 20 watt amp that is driven into distortion. The reason is simple, when your amp is driven too hard it puts out straight voltage, rather than nice smooth audio. Its like connecting your sub straight to your car battery, it will smoke up within seconds.

Rewired my amp and now it doesn't work.I have power checked with test light?

if its staticy noise you are hearing chances are it has nothing to do with over powering the subs at all more than likley the staticy noise is coming from the Power wire to your amp and the RCA cable being ran on the same side of the car or being ran close to one anuther, this will cause the RCA to pick up static noise from the power wire and be amplified then played on your sub, Try running your RCA on the Opposite side of your car than your power cord is ran that should take away the staic noise
