Question about Sony XM-1002HX Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Broken output signal

Can not get a clear sound. Sound is broken up, have tried switching between high, low and no filter. Have tested speaker from source, both speaker & CD player are good.

Thanks

    Speaker wires and connections are all good. Have removed cover on amp, looks as though the output tansistors have been over-heated, the soldering of the middle leg on 2, has melted.

    Have solved the problem. tansistors still okay, just required resoldering.

Sounds like you have some loose speaker wires somewhere, or touching wires. check to make sure ALL wire connections are solid, and sealed with tape or a connecter. if any wire is touching any metal on the car or another wire it will cause interference

I cant get my jl audio w6 10s to give off much bass with the jl audio 500/1 amp


here is a manual for your subwoofers: http://mobile.jlaudio.com/pdfs/8-12W6_BDS.pdf

use the wiring diagram for 1.5? (1.5ohm) with 2 speakers. the diagram for 3 speakers will not work, because it would bring the load down to 1 ohm, and the amp cannot go below 1.5 ohm.

to set up the amp:

under "preamp output section", on the "output mode" switch, select "amp filter"

to set up the levels: start with the amp gain pretty far down- with the input voltage on low for line level outputs from the deck, and on high for speaker outputs from the deck. now turn your cd deck as far up as it will go until it distorts, then turn the cd deck down to just where it stops distorting. now, you can start to turn up the gain on the amp.

on the filters, youll prolly want the cutoff filter around 100hz @ 24db slope. start with the infrasonic filters off, but, if you do get into them, try centering between 30 and 60hz on either, and, possibly dropping the cutoff filter to 80hz.

Is it bridgeable


yes you can bridge this amp to one channel
here are the specs for the amp
  • stereo or bridged mono output
  • Tri-way capable (Tri-Way crossover required)
  • 100 watts x 2 at 2 ohms
  • 200 watts x 1 in bridged mode
  • requires 10-gauge power and ground leads — wiring and hardware not included with amplifier
  • PWM MOSFET switching power supply
  • Intelligent Surface Mount Technology for cleaner sound and greater reliability
  • selectable 85 Hz high-pass/low-pass crossovers, 18 dB/octave
  • preamp outputs
  • speaker-level inputs with SmartEngage (turns the amp on when it detects signal from the receiver, eliminating the need for a separate turn-on lead from your receiver)
  • 9-3/4"W x 2-1/8"H x 9-3/4"D

    I need help?


    id check remote signal with a test light and also if there is a High pass or Low pass filter either on the head unit's settings or the Amp's controls

    if your amp or head unit has a High pass filter setting enabled that would explain no bass being sent to your speakers,

    if you are using a separate crossover to send the bass signal check those settings too..

    if all else fails
    test another amp on your system (if it works that would discard problems with the rest of the system's output)

    AMP POWERS UP, I CAN HEAR IT WORKING BUT THE SOUND IS REALLY REALLY LOW...


    Hello korre,

    Low output could be the head unit, the speakers of the amp itself. Start by isolating the problem.

    1) Test the sub(s) on a known good output.
    2) Input a known good signal. A portable with RCA preamp outs will work OK.
    After you have eliminated the other components, troubleshoot the amp itself:

    1) Check the onboard fuses. The M605 has 2 each 30A fuses just to the left of the power and ground terminals.
    2) If it was just installed, then my first suspicion would be a problem in wiring. If one tiny little strand of your speaker wires comes into contact with another wire or ground point, it could present just enough of a signal path to ground out most of your power, and perhaps still allow the amp to seemingly operate normally (at least for awhile). Check power and ground too.
    3) Make sure your head unit RCA's are plugged into the inputs and not the outputs.
    4) Check the low-pass and subsonic filter settings. If low pass is turned all the way down, the amplifier would ONLY send frequencies below 30Hz to the speakers. Subsonic turned on and the low pass all the way down would effectively result in no sound.
    5) Remove the top cover to access the mode controls and display. Check the input level.

    If everything checks out, the amp probably has a defective component and needs factory/service center repair.

    Hope this helps.

    What to do


    Hello dodgeram1980,

    If you are not getting sound from any of the 4 channels, I'd suspect that either the amp is not getting an input signal or the amp itself is faulty.

    Here's the "no sound" troubleshooting step-by-step procedure from the JL manual:

    1) Check the input signal using an AC voltmeter to measure the
    voltage from the source unit while an appropriate test tone is
    played through the source unit (disconnect the input cables
    from the amplifier prior to this test). The frequency used should be in the range that is to be amplified by the amplifier (example; 50 Hz for a sub bass application or 1 kHz for a full range / high-pass application). A steady, sufficient voltage (between 200mV and 5.O-volts) should be present at the output of the signal cables.

    2) Check the output of the amplifier. Using the procedure explained
    in the previous check item (after plugging the input cables back into the amplifier) test for output at the speaker outputs of the amplifier. Unless you enjoy test tones at high levels, it is a good idea to remove the Speaker Connector Plugs from the amplifier while doing this. Turn the volume up approximately half way. 5V or more should be measured at the speaker outputs. This output level can vary greatly between amplifiers but it should not be in the millivolt range with the source unit at half volume. If you are reading
    sufficient voltage, check your speaker connections as explained below.

    3) Check to ensure that the speaker wires are making a good
    connection with the metal inside the Speaker Connector Plugs. The speaker wire connectors are designed to accept up to 12 AWG wire. Make sure to strip the wire to allow for a sufficient connection with the metal inside each terminal.

    Hope this helps.

    Just bass through speakers attatched to amp


    there is probably a switch that says lpf-full-hpf those are your low pass filter(only low tones) full which is all ranges of sound and high pass filter which when you want to hook up a set of mids or highs I hope that this helps u out

    Pioneer gm-5000t amp


    If the amplifier is powering, but no sound, try disconnecting the speaker outputs from the amplifier and connecting a test speaker to the output channel. If you get sound, then one of the speakers in the car may be bad or shorted out. That can be confirmed with a voltmeter. If still no sound, then you need to check the input to the amplifier. Disconnecting the RCA cable from the input and testing that with an amplified speaker like you can get from Radio Shack will allow you to make sure that the amp is getting signal from your radio.

    Car audio amp (?) issue


    To me, it sounds like your "Output Devices" in the MAIN Amp have gone faulty. BUT check the OUTPUT directly at the Head Unit & then the Amp's terminals to make sure.. if ya dont have any signal comming out of the "Head Unit" than thats ya fault.. however if that has a good signal out,there, then it's gotta be ya Main Amp. Ya can check to se if there is output with a small speaker with wires on it, or my favorite an modified earphone, with the wires ends exposed so ya can "Touch" them to the Output terminals/Plugs etc, of whatever ya wanna test. NB: Only test at a low level output.
