Question about Sony XM-SD22X Car Audio Amplifier

Amp won't put out sound

Hello, I am installing Pioneer deck with a big kicker amp and 2 10 inch kicker subs. The amp is one of those duals amps. So i plugged the RCA cables into the "rear" amp, which has the bass control, and the sub wires in. And the amp turns on (both the "power" light and the red light on the top of the amp) and its getting its full twelve volts. (and yes the remote wire is hooked up to the deck) but the subs are not getting ANY juice at all. I even took one out of the box to make sure the connections were good (by using my little voltmeter thing) the stereo wires are getting 0.15 volts coming out of the amp. (if that helps at all) and continues to feed that much to the subs. I have played with all the switches and knobs on the amp, moved the stereo wires around ( + to -, - to +), checked the ground, tried different RCA cables, tried different RCA outlets (by the way they are plugged into the SW (sub woofer) outlet on the deck)I'm wondering if anyone can think of something that i havent, cause its driving me crazy. Thanks.

I have 2 12 inch kicker rt dual 2 ohm subs. On a kicker cx1200.1 i want to kno how to hook it up to 2ohm to the amp. And if i can add another 10 inch kicker rt 2ohm sub in the future.


Do to the impedance Of your sub u can't run it @2ohms its going to either be @1ohm or 4ohms and your amp isn't 1ohm stable and u will risk damaging your amp. So your only option is to run it @4ohms and on a good note your sub is 100-600 watts RMS and your amp will push 400-500 watts RMS @4ohms. Now if you want to run 2 sub's in the future That amp will work perfect because it pushes 1,200watts RMS @2ohms and to wire your 2 sub's @1ohm just follow the steps in the image below. Hope this helped.25345194-v0hbouy2nvquqteoroa5j5rq-3-0.png

My kicker 12 inch cvr's arent hitting as hard as they should


amps and wiring kits are very optimistic on the output. If you want proper wire, buy some welding cable "0" or "00" guage. That solves the power delivery. Put a 1 Farrad (or more) capacitor near the amp, that solves the surge power issue. Make sure the box is suitable for the subs. Lastly I'd say do some research and find the right amp that can deliver the clean, huge current required to move some serious air!

I have two 12 inch rockford p1 punches powered by an 800 watt sony explode amp (2 Channel) and i want to install another 15 inch kicker with a 1200 watt amp not sure the model, i got it from a friend and...


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

I have 1500 kicker amp and 2 15L7 4oh want to hook up


you can't get full power out of it because those subs can be wired series/parrallel to a 1 ohm load or just series to a 4 ohm load and you don't want to put a 1 ohm load on this amp... you need dual 2 ohm subs for this amp... I have the same setup but with dual 2 ohm subs and it is rediculous... you need to buy different subs that are dual 2 ohm or buy an amp that is stable at 1 ohm... you will only get 750 rms out of a kicker 1500.1 at 4 ohms so u will do more harm than good to your subs.

How do you wire 4 kicker cvr dual voice coil 4ohms to a 1500.1 kicker mono block 1 channel amp, they sound distorted when i turn them up, how should i wire them?


Hello antjobe,

According to Kicker the 1500.1 is only stable to 2ohms. So you will want your 4 CVR's to present a 2ohm or higher impedance to the amp.

The best configuration would be to wire the voice coils in series (each sub 8ohms) and then parallel all of the subs to the amp (2ohms). Here's a link to the diagram.

Hope this helps.

Got a 12"kicker L74ohm sub and sony xm-D9001GTR mono amp


Hello juan_penaloz,

The Kicker L7 has an RMS power range of from 50-750 watts and a maximum power handling capability of 1,500 watts so your Sony amp will power it OK. A more powerful monoblock like the Alpine MRP-M1000 or the Kicker 08ZX750.1 would provide even more power and could operate safely at 2ohms.

You have the voice coils wired properly for the Sony amp. It's OK to have the sub impedance higher, but you definitely do not want it lower than the 4ohms the amp is rated at in bridged mode.

Hope this helps.

What car amp to use to run 2 dvc subs


You need a stereo amp that can run 400amps
continous, with an output of 4 ohms. These should
not be too hard to find and they are getting smaller
all of the time. Make a practice look on ebay.
They give you pictures and you can check the dimentions first, so you know it can fit between
your two deck lids.

Pioneer deck kicker sub 2 mossfit amps


scanman84: i would recommend using the 2 channel 300W amp to drive the dual voice coil alone. i wouldn't combine the single channel amp with the 2 channel. you can't tie the 2 channel outputs together & use that on 1 voice & attach the single channel amp to the other, plus there could be slight differences in amplification & timing which, could cause the sub to have minimal movement or cause a canceling effect which would reduce the spl, sound pressure level. if you need more volume use the lowest impedence speaker recommended by the amp's mfg & if you need serious volume, go with a higher output single 2 channel amp. just make sure you have sufficient wire size to handle high powered amps. example, 8awg wire is rated for 73 amps. also make sure the amp is well grounded with nut & bolt connections to the frame & that there is good ventilation.

peace-out
