Question about Sony Car Audio & Video
My subs were on but turned off randomly. they never turned back on, i checked the fuze and it was blown. The fuze was 100A, then i bought a 150A fuze and replaced it. Now my amp has power to it but the subs are not playing, is my subs or amp blown or is the wiring wrong
The amp has power, ground and emote turn on? is the amplifier lighting up? is it going into protection?check the wiring to the amp before you suspect a bad sub and amp

SOURCE: 12" sony subs not working
Disconnect both subwoofers and a. get someone who has an ohmmeter to check speaker resistance which should be around 4 ohms or no meter B get hold of a D Dell battery 1.5v and connect across pos and neg speaker terminals cone should move in or out depnding on polarity pos to pos forward excursion if voice coil is not cooked or seized ...if speaker dead no movement wait 10 years till you can appreciate moderate bass and not duuf duuf then replace the speaker and you will have no further problems Most car speakers are rated in RAT Watts but in reality they perform like little mosey watts ataraxia

SOURCE: is amp big enough for speakers
To run 2 subs, the amp would be a little small. The subs will run OK, they just won't be very loud.
It's usually better to compare and match up the RMS power rather than the peak power. The Sony XS-L10P5B sub has a peak power handling figure of 1200 watts, but the RMS is 300 watts. The Sony XM-ZZR3301 monoblock amp puts out 1100 watts peak, but only 330 watts RMS. They would work great together, 1 sub, 1 amp. But if you add another sub, each one would only be getting about 165 watts. They'd work OK, just not as loud as they could be.
Hope this helps!

I've got a pair of these MTX's subs powered from a Fusion 450 watt 2-channel amp. For the price, they are great. By the way, they are 4-ohm.
My first suspicion would be that something in the first incorrect wiring damaged either the amp or the subs. Can you explain specifically what the "installing the subs incorrectly" means? Was the amp output shorted out at any time or was it operated without a load? Either of these conditions will fry an amp and sometimes, the protection circuitry doesn't work either.
First make sure that your amp is still working. Check both the primary power fuse, usually located near the vehicle battery, and the fuses on both sides of the amp. Make sure that when you turn the system on, the power light comes on steady (blinking is protection mode). Test your subs one at a time on a speaker output.

if the speakers are 250 watts each then yes if speakers are less you will blow them cuz of to much power if they are more then you most likely won't be able to push them
