Sometimes if the power cable and the ground cable are frayed and touch it will short out the amp temporarily check to make sure allof the wires aren't touching each other

I have the Sony explode 1200 2/1 channel amp and 2 comp series lighting audio 10s 8ohm 900 watt max best way to hook up for loudest bass


You will have to wire subs together for a 4 ohm load. Then bridge amp (1 channel). Look on amp speaker outs to see what leads to use to bridge. Run positive and negative to one speaker then use a jumper wire from that positive and negative to the next speakers positive and negative

I have a similar setup & I just run the second amp straight off the other amp by running positive & remote wires directly from 1 amps positive & remote inputs to the others amps inputs. But my head unit has RCA inputs, (sub in & front & rear inputs) so from my 4 channel amp I run 2 6 inch alpine S's to the front to the front RCA inputs of the head unit, & 2 Pioneer 440w 6x9 inch speakers to the rear inputs. & my 800w 12 inch sub from my 2 channel amp to the sub woofer inputs on the head unit. Has blown my eardrums for nearly 12 months now great stuff! Hope this has helped

How to hook it up to system with two 10s 400 watts per sub and two 6x9s at 200 watts each?,subs behind seats, 6x9s in doors. IF i need another amp i have one,to help push. But either way i need your help...


Hello www_mitzjohn,

I'd definitely use another amp.

The 2-channel Sony is well suited for powering the 6X9's but a monoblock would be better for the subs. The different types of speakers running from the same channel will not sound very good and likely it'll be impossible to get the impedances to match.

You'll want to set the Sony to send higher frequencies to the 6X9's, but not to the subs. You can't adjust the channels individually. So, just connect each 6X9 to one channel of the Sony and use a monoblock subwoofer amp for the subs.

Hope this helps.

Always verify the grounding circuit and trace all connecting wires back to their sources. Also verify with a voltmeter if you have 12vdc at the amp.
