How to hook up my sony xm-2165gtx

You need a splitter box for both ground and power wires

Now always up size the wire coming in, and lower gauge going out.....

for remote wire simply split the wire......

Do not do that for your ground and power wires you will start a fire, get the blocks

Hope this helps...............

Check your subwoofer for resistance. It is more likely you blew a sub than a channel on the amplifier. If your subwoofer has no resistance, which can be checked using a multi-meter, then it is blown.

I would try to remove the top cover of the amp and you might be able to push them out from the inside. Just a shot in the dark.

I have a sony 2/1 channel power amplifier (XM-2165GTX) that will produce sound untill my pioneer headunit (deh-3050) hits 25 in volume..the sub then goes into protection mode and will not turn off..not...

Not enough power going to the amp..?

1) Your negative ground wire needs to be in a better spot.
scrape paint from the grounding surface.. This will ensure better contact between the negative power wire terminal and the vehicle ground.

2) Get thicker wiring cables.. for Positive, and Negative

3)Turn the gain right down.

My xplod amp gets power

If the power light is lit and the amp is not in protect mode, the power supply is probably blown.

Have you confirmed that you have a good signal reaching the amp and that the speakers are not blown?

1000 watt amp sony xplod

That's not a 1000w amp. It's a 400 watt amp when loaded to it's lowest rated load. If you have one speaker per channel (the only safe load if you have single 4 ohm coil speakers), you're only getting 165 watts/speaker. It's probably distorted because you're driving it to clipping.

Amplifier, not as loud, getting quieter

Have you tested your speakers yet? They will sometimes age and cause a problem.
