Wattage and amps?

I have 2 1200W Sony Xplod subs and 2 1100W Sony Xplod amps. Will this work without destroying the subs or do I only need one amp?

    one sub on one amp? that wont make the sub burn out?

  • Anonymous Mar 28, 2014

    I have a 2000 GMC Sierra, since my old Sony Radio stopped working, I had to purchase a new set. I got the XO Vision X349nt model. After installation, my subwoofers wouldn't work but the Amp does turn on. The Subs shouldn't be blown because I have a lower wattage amp to avoid overpowering the subs. They worked well before I got the new radio. The REM wire is hooked to the P. Cntrl wire but a friend of mine suggested I should hook it to the P. Ant wire since I don't have a power antenna. If not, what could be the problem?

What amp do i need for Sony Double XS-L124P5B 1300w each?

Most professional car audio installers and manufactures say that to get the best sound out of your subs, you should run half of the RMS wattage listed on the speakers, which in your case would be 1300w for both which is kinda up there, but you can find a 1200w amp and even a 1000w amp would work great, just make sure that the amp has true wattage listed because they have a habit of over rating them until you read on it later. Another way of going about it would be 2 amps, 1 for each speaker, which would be smaller amps, but you would have to make sure both are getting the same amount. Hope this helps.

Amplifier For Powering Sony Xplod xs-l121p5

Pump the brakes!
You need to know the RMS power rating of the sub you are powering.
Dont exceed the RMS power rating of the sub by more than 25%.
If you see a peak power rating on either the sub or the amp, ignor it, means nothing. Always compare RMS ratings.
Example: a Sony 12" Xplod sub, boasting 1200 watts, will only handle, 350 watts RMS, so the amp you choose to power the sub should be 350 watts RMS as well, and should not exceed more than 25% of the RMS power handling (487.5 watts).
Bottom line, know your RMS numbers, not Peak.

Amp big enough for speakers

No amp is too big, you can turn the gain down. Anyway in my experience people tend to blow up their subs with underpowered stuff anyway (power spikes from clipping). Your amp is rated at 11000watts max and will probably only put out 500 or 600 watts RMS - RMS by the way is the number you should go by. It indicates the usable output w/ out lots of distortion. On the flipside you can power high wattage subs with an underpowered amp and be just fine. However if you wish to extract the most you will need to match amps and subs. A good example of under powered sub applications is in some of my work- I built a wall of nine 12" subs in a bronco, we competed in a 50 watt class and cleaned house taking first in class. Another would be a 150x2 watt amp driving two 15" CV Strokers (1200 watts each). I was going to compete in that class but they made me move up becuase I was an installer at the time. I was upset at first but after my first try I was able to get about 146db and went on to take first anyway. So if the enclosures are built right you can still use that kind of setup. I hope this was helpfull. If you are concerned with exact wattage ratings the manufactures websites should list them. Good luck.

Is amp big enough for speakers


To run 2 subs, the amp would be a little small. The subs will run OK, they just won't be very loud.

It's usually better to compare and match up the RMS power rather than the peak power. The Sony XS-L10P5B sub has a peak power handling figure of 1200 watts, but the RMS is 300 watts. The Sony XM-ZZR3301 monoblock amp puts out 1100 watts peak, but only 330 watts RMS. They would work great together, 1 sub, 1 amp. But if you add another sub, each one would only be getting about 165 watts. They'd work OK, just not as loud as they could be.

Hope this helps!

Speakers cut off when bass goes up...

it might be that your wires from your amp to your subs are too thin. since they were relatively new the first three months, they were probably undamaged, but after pushing them too much, they probably have broken wires, and can't get enough power to the subs when turned up, i suggest getting thicker wires before investing in a capacitor, it could save you money.
