I have 2 10" Sony Explod Subs and a 1000w amp. My fuze was blown but i bought a new fuze that was stronger. My system is still not working.

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

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

Hello,

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!

SOURCE: Subwoofers won't work and they are brand new

Hello,

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.

Hi i have a bnps102 subwoofer system along with a pyle 1400 watt amp. my amp is getting power to it hence the green light lighting up and the subs sounded great but last week during a song they both...


You are right about the scratching sound meaning the speaker is blown. The other one by it not playing it could mean the voice coils in it are blown or burnt.The safest way to check the speaker is to connect it to a standard 9 volt battery and listen for a popping noise when you make the connection and look the see if the cone stands up as long as the connection is made n returns to normal and no noises when disconnected from the 9 volt battery. To test this while the sub is plugged in to the amp but out of the box move the cone as far in and as far out as it will go. If it comes on while u hold it on either one of these positions but when released it goes back to not playing then the coils in it are blown or burnt and is no longer any good. As for selling the box its on you, aim anywhere from 2/3 to 1/2 the price you paid for it minus the speakers.

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.

Is my amplifier giving my subs the full power they need?


no sony has like 400 rms on that amp. eventualy u will blow the subbs. buy the hifonics 1608d amp to power thees subbs connect them all positives together at amp terminal and all negative together at negitive on amp terminal. this will make it a 1 ohm load with around 1400 true rms so around 500rms each sub.this amp on ebay runns like 250 and is worth every penny
