Sony Xplod 2-Channel 1000 Watt Amplifier trouble shooting

I have a sony Xplod amp and it doesn't seem to be working properly. The other sony speakers in the car seem to have more base than the ones running through the Xplod. I have checked the settings on my cd player and they are set to max for the Sub. Am I missing something?

What's the model number of the amp?

What speakers do you have on the amp?

Are the speakers moving significantly at high volume?

How do I connect a Sony xplod 1000 watt 2 channel amp to 1 10" dual 4 ohm voice coil 1500 watt planet audio subwoofer?


Connect one voice coil to one channel of the amp. Repeat with the other voice coil. Do not bridge the amp as your only choices would be series which would be an 8 ohm final load and cuts the amp power in half or parallel wiring which results in a 2 ohm load and very few Sony amps currently made can handle being bridged to a 2 ohm load.

Hey i have a sony amp (600 watt xm-zr604) with 2 10"sub(sony xplod).when i raise the volume hight enough the amp go off(red light came on) what can i try


sounds as though (at high volumes) the amp thinks it has a short circuit. This may be caused by the way you have them connected.
Speakers have a resistance and amps needs a certain amount of resistance to function right (too little resistance = short circuit)
The way it works out for the speakers is, if the two are connected to one amp output channel, the amp will see half of the resistance of a single sub. (4 Ohms/sub amp sees 2 Ohms)
If the amp instructions say that it's 4 Ohms/channel then you need to use 1 channel for each sub.
Hope this has been some help.

I Have a Sony Xplod 800 watt amp and 2 12 inch Sony Xplod subs


You should definately bridge them. Firstly, lay the 2 speakers face down next to each other. Note the connections +- +-. The first + will go to the amplifier. The next terminal(-) will be connected to the next speaker(+). Take the last(-) and connect to amplifier. Please note that your amplifier has a bridge section which is normally the first + and the last- on the two channels. Connect your woofers on the bridge.

Can I run 8 speakers and 1 sub through 1 1200watt 2:1 Sony Xplod?


asuming the 8s are 4ohms each; wire two in series and that gives you 8ohms then two more in series then you put those together in parallel and it gives you a 4ohm load. repeat with other four for the other side. you should then be able to bridge the sub


series; posative of one speaker to negative of other speaker and that doubles your ohms

parallel; posative to posative negative to negative and that cuts the ohms in half

Sub wiring


IF THE RMS IS 800 THEN THAT IS THE MINIMUM YOU SHOULD RUN TO THEM. IF THE MAX IS OVER 1000 WATT, YOU SHOULD BRIDGE ONE SPEAKER TO EACH CHANNEL. YOU WILL PUSH THE MOST POWER TO THEM THAT WAY. MORE POWER = MORE BASS

High distortion


The head unit may be rated at 200 watts but it cannot produce more than ~20 watts of real power per channel. There's no way that it can drive the high end speakers to a level that will be needed to compete with the subs on a 1000 watt amplifier.
