Unless other specified in paperwork, all Alpine receivers are 4ohm capable only.
Now yes there are exceptions, but not many.
Now for amp almost all alpine amps can be run in several different resistances.
Basically for sure 4ohm, now depending on model some have abilities to go as low as 1ohm stable. But for most 2 ch alpine non special amps are all 4ohm and most 2ohm capable.
Now better models can do things such as run 2,3,4 ch. And some can even get to .5 ohm loads stable.

I would think a 1000 watts would be enough for 2 10's.
You can hook up two dual voice coil subs a few different ways.
First thing I would check for is what ohmage your amp is rated for.
You don't want to push a lower ohmage than what your amp is rated to handle.
That is a good way to overheat & ultimately fry your amp.
After that, you can wire your subs accordingly.
If they are dual 2 ohm subwoofers, you can wire each of them as a 4 ohm load, 2 ohm load or even a 1 ohm load.
I would personally go by what the amp is ratted for.
Remember though, the lower you run the ohmage, the better base responce & harder the hit you will get.

Make sure even thought the wires are the same color that your car color code also matches the color code of the Head Unit if not stock radio then the color code would be in your cars manual book or find it online in the image section of the browser you are using or better yet just order your self the radio adapter for your cars model for that type of head unit your installing or troubleshooting in your case and make sure all wires and positive wires are hooked up properly because some devices will not work if all the wires are not wired correctly meaning left terminal to left and right terminal to right speaker and positive and negative wires installed correct as well.. Hope this helped..

Read your instruction book under the heading, 'setting up', maybe.

This is in a foreign language, but the radio is showing english, so you should get the gist

Presumably you are referring to the magazine. It probably will not eject because there is a CD stuck inside. You will have to remove the unit and disassemble it to correct the problem.

This is a sign of a poor soldering connection inside the amp. Unless you have technical skills in electronics and the needed test gear, you would be bettter sending it off for repairs.
