What does it mean when my overcurrent light comes on on my sony xplode amp

It could mean a lot of things, but the most common cause is the amp's speaker impedance load is too low. If you have the owner's manual, it should tell you the recommended impedance load.

I hooked up 1 10" type r to my 600w sony xplode

How many ohms is the speaker? You have the amp bridged going into the sub? You have the negative of one side hooked up to the negative and the positive on the other side hooked up to the positive?

It says that it is bridgable at 4 ohms. What about the input? Set your stereo about half way up. Then turn your amps gain up slowly until it is where you want to listen to it normally. Not to loud. Then when you turn it up it isn't too much.

But it sounds like you have way too much power for one speaker. Especially a ten. It takes two tens to equal one 12.

Make sure you don't have a short circuit somewhere. Make sure the wiring is all intact.

1000w Sony Xplode car amp

Sounds like the power supply is shutting down because of it sensing a bad output channel. I'm assuming of course that you have checked all your battery, ground, and trigger wires to see if they are OK. Good luck.
