Question about Sony XM-2200GTX Car Audio Amplifier

2 Answers

No power Hello! Ok Where do i start? I was driving one day and then it was working fine the next day I turned on the car. no sound from the subs. So first i startde by taking the rem wire and connecting with the power on the amp. I noticed it would turn on. Out of the 10 times i tried it, sound came out once or twice. I also noticed that the green light was dimmer after 1 second. So i thought there goes my amp. So then i tried my kicker amp just for fun. It did the same thing. When I hoook it up normally running off the deck, isomtimes the red light would come on ( which is bad) and then sometimes no light at all. I checked the fuses, theres power. What could i possibly do other then drive, open the window and throw everything out:) lol

Re: no power

Check all of your wires. Be sure you have a ground, hot, and trigger and that they are indeed supplying ground, +12volts and +12volts in that order. Make sure that you are supplying a signal from your RCA inputs (maybe by substituting another amp) and make sure that you haven't lost the ground on your RCA's also. If ALL of these things are indeed good, then you have a problem with your amp. Because you said that when you connected another amp that you had the same problem, then the problem is obviously with one of the things I mentioned above. Be thorough! Good luck.

Red Power Protector light

Hi, the only way i can see the amp resets the stereo is that power is dropping. The amp should have its own wires directly to power/battery so as to not affect anything else.

On the protect, try to disconnet all the speakers, make sure the power is OK. If it appears to work, the there could be a problem with speakers/cables. Try a different speaker to see if it works. If the problem continues with speakers off, a different speaker etc, then there is a problem with the amp. Hope that helps

Amp doesn't come on

Hello rheabarb,

You did not say whether or not you checked the wiring going to your subs. Many times, a shorted or grounded speaker wire will cause an amp to fail. And if the amp powers up OK with the subs disconnected, I'd suspect one or more of the wires.

Hope this helps.

Amp is shutting off after 10 min of driving!! please help!!

Does it happen at all volume levels?
What is the gain setting on the sub amp?
Have you checked for 12V @ remote turn on after problem occurs?
Sounds as if the remote turn on relay inside the amplifier is losing signal, or has become damaged. If the protection light does not light up, the problem is not thermal, shorting, or high/low voltage.
The amplifier is in need of repair. This is not an end-user fix. Looking at about $50 to repair.

Thanks for using FixYa- a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Amp staying on but cutting out?

Hello Willb2396,

Actually you answered your own question in your paragraph. I draw your attention to your statement of:
"It will work for as long as I'm driving I will park my car, and when I turn it back on every thing will be working just fine and, then a couple minutes later, amp cuts out and won't hit for a couple hours or a couple days.... I have checked the sub multiple times and I don't see it being the sub or the amp"

You are correct it is neither the Sub nor the Amp. The problem is either your voltage regulator or your alternator. one and or the other is going bad.

Here is some advice check your ground wires, the buy a dual alternator kit, it contains the parts you will need to add an additional alternator to your car. This will provide the power you need.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

LED Light is on, but no sound from sub at all.. Have double backed on all wires but still nothing! HELP!!

I just brought mine to the shop for the same reason. I thought it was something big but it was just a bad fuse. It wasn't blown so when i checked it, I didn't think anything of. If you're using an AGU fuse, try and remove the fuse and touch the two ends of your power wire together and if it's the fuse it should cut on

Amplifier problems!!!

it sounds like your running your ohms to low, check to see what the amp can power and then read up online about ohms and your subs and how they should be wired

Powers on but no sound

Check the main amp fuse under the hood, even if it looks good just change it. Often times that light on the amp can come on just from the power amp tunon wire. Try a friends subwoofer box just to make sure the connectors on your box are good, and if that doesn't work then give me some more details....year/make/model of car, what kind of sub, what types of things do you see on the side of the there a green light as well as a red light?
