This question really can't be answered accurately online for a few reasons.. we don't know if you have a ported or sealed box, we also don't know what kind of box you have, wether it's a 4th order, 6th order...blah blah blah. We also don't know what the box has been tuned to (if it's ported). unfortunately, you'll have to play around with it yourself or get someone to physically see your set up. But here are some tips to help you tune your set up.
1st set up the frequency( or crossover). this basically tells you sub the range it should run in. alot of people don't set up their crossovers properly and the sub is reproducing frequency's the mids are producing so some notes are far louder than they should, which makes for unbalanced audio. when you get that sorted out move onto the gain. (keep in mind, that if you've only installed a sub and have stock speakers or are running upgraded speakers off the head unit and not an amp the frequency is going to be harder to control since you can't control the other speakers.) next the gain, the gain is really just volume. Play a song with alot of bass and set the sub at a volume that pounds, but not to the point where your other speakers get drowned out and there you go, you should have a pretty good sounding setup. If this is the first time you're tuning it may take some time, but please do this with your car running, far to often i hear people killing their batteries as they don't realize that amps really do **** alot of power.
If you purchased the subs and box separately the box usually tells you what it's tuned to (if ported) and you can use that to guess where to set your frequency.

I have a sony xplod 2/1 channel amp 800 watts. I already have 2 sony 6 by 9's hooked up to it running at 60 rms each but I wanna bridge a sub to it too. I was planning on taking a positive from one...


I don't recommend it. It may work good during low volume, but from experience, you will only turn it up so high before it trips the protect light on the amp since it's drawing too much current due to extra speaker(sub), then you have to turn off the radio and turn it back on to get it working again, it gets annoying. I recommend saving up for a mono amp, it will keep your system sounding clean and clear. the setup you specified will work, but it's not recommended. Your amp may run hot as well.

Is the sony xplod cdx-gt71w able to support a subwoofer without another amp


Sure is.

The sony is bridgable as follows:

  • 100W x 4 @ 4 Ohm
  • 100W x 2 + 250W x 1 @ at 4 Ohm

  • This will allow 2 channels to run 100 watts each @ 4ohms with an additional single channel with 250 watts @ 4 ohms.


    The single sub channel is created by bridging channels 3 & 4

    How to setup my fli900s amp ,just wont to know how to get the best sound out of it


    In order to get the bass you want, you'll run your amp switched as a two channel amp and you'll need to run your subwoofers in 4 ohm Mono that's 450 x 2 to give you 900 watts of power.

    2, 2 ohm dual voice coils ran in series and bridged on the amp for each sub.

    Otherwise, Single Voice Coil 4 ohm subwoofers bridged to amp.

    Getting my son a sony xplod xm-1652 2 channel what subs would sound good and the things says 1000x2 and 500x2 what is the truth


    165 watts x 2 @ 4ohms and 200-230 watts@ 2 ohms or 400-460 watts bridged into a 4 ohm mono load is what the amp will actually do. A single 12 inch sub or a pair of 10 inch subs or 12s would be great

    AMP


    That amplifier is only stable to 2 ohms.
    You will only be able to use one Dual 4 ohm Subwoofer wired in parallel (all + to + on amp.... all - to - on amp.
    This will yield a 2 ohm mono load.

    It is impossible to wire (2) dual 4 ohm voicecoils to achieve a 2 ohm mono load.

    If you're set on using both subwoofers - they will not be getting as much power from your amplifier with a 4 ohm load - but it is your only option.

    it isnt getting enough power and its tripping the internal switch on the amp and putting it in safe mode. either your wire isnt a high enough gauge. you might need a capacitor or you need bigger wire.

    Sony xplod 500w 4/3 channel


    If the speaker is a 4 ohm DVC (two 4 ohm coils), you can't wire it to get a single 4 ohm load. Try connecting one coil to each of the two rear channels. It may not be as loud but the amp should operate without going into protection.

    If the two 4 ohm coils are in parallel, the amp is driving a 2 ohm mono load. That's probably why it's shutting down.

    Amp overheating and adjusting gain and frequency


    Overheating in amplifiers is often caused by a speaker load of too low impedance. If your L7 is a dual 4-ohm voice coil, and if you're using the amplifier in bridged mode, that may be causing your problem. Dual 4-ohm subs, with the voice coils wired in parallel, present a 2-ohm load to the amp. Your amp is capable of running a 2 ohm load in 2-channel mode, but not bridged mode. The best fix with your equipment would be to re-wire the sub's voice coils in series, resulting in an 8-ohm load. The amplifier's power output will drop sharply, but you won't have problems with overheating in that configuration. There's a good chance that you'll still be able to get all the volume you want, even with an 8-ohm setup; otherwise you'll probably want to switch to a mono amp designed for a 2-ohm load.
