    Are the amps bridged together? or do they go to seperate subs. How are they Bridged? Are you running subs in sequence? or are you running seperate wires for each pseaker/You can test the amp with the fault by disconecting all speaker wire and turning on the power for the amp. if the redlight still stays on chance are that there is an internal problem with the amp. Smell the amp. If it stinks really bad then the amp is fried and is cheaper for a now one. But if the green light comes on when all speakers are disconnected then you have a wireing problem. But 4 subs are alot to be hooking up to 2 1200 watt amps.

If you are certain speaker isnt blown and you have correct phase wiring and so forth you have whats called a solder jump which is internal repair by dealer only! buy a new amp at dealer wholesale price here cheaper than having it repaired unless under warranty go here for wholesale pricing on almost everything audio wise:

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

Green light comes on for a sec the red light comes on,1200 watt sony xplod amp 10'' Orion sub,I think the subs right around 3000 watts. What's wrong?:(


Your Sony Xplod amplifier turns on briefly (green light) then possibly senses a mismatch between the nominal output impedance of the amplifier and impedance of your Orion sub and goes into protect mode (red light) to prevent internal damage.

I have Sony xm-2165gtx amp 165 watt rms x 2 at 4 ohm 200 watt x 2 at 2 ohm 400 watt x 1 bridge output at 4 ohm stereo or bridge mono output 4 ohm stable in bridge mode this mean can't go lower then 4 ohm...


You can't bridge that amp onto a load lower than 4 ohms. So you can't bridge that amp onto two 4 ohm subs. To get the most power out of your subs is easy. Run one channel to one sub and the other channel to the other sub. 165 watts RMS is plenty for most subs.

I have two sony xplod 12" speakers wich can hold


You only gave us the model of the amp so I will make an assumption that your 12" subs are the Sony XS-GTX120LW. First, they cannot hold 1200 watts a piece. They are meant to be powered with 350 watts RMS. They will hold 1200 watts peak. That means that 1200 watts for a few seconds will be ok. Past that and kiss them goodbye!

Next you indicated that bridged the amp. Since the subs are both 4 ohm single voice coils did you wire them in series or parallel?

It sounds to me like you wired them in parallel resulting in the amp seeing a 2 ohm load. The amp you referenced is only stable when bridged at 4 ohms.

Has the amp begun working again once it cooled down? If not you could have fried the outputs by having the resistance too low.

I Have a Sony Xplod 800 watt amp and 2 12 inch Sony Xplod subs


You should definately bridge them. Firstly, lay the 2 speakers face down next to each other. Note the connections +- +-. The first + will go to the amplifier. The next terminal(-) will be connected to the next speaker(+). Take the last(-) and connect to amplifier. Please note that your amplifier has a bridge section which is normally the first + and the last- on the two channels. Connect your woofers on the bridge.
