I recently purchased a hifonics titan txi 6006 amp and i have it pushing 2 alpine type r subwoofers. at first, the amp pushed the subs verrrrry hard and i was extremely pleased with its performance. now, about a week later, the amp seems to be over powered very easily, and is not pushing my subs nearly as well as they were nor as much as id like it to (ive had to turn down the amps settings).
is there anything i can do to get the performance of my amp back to where it was? or will i need a more powerful amp?
i understand the amp temporarily over heating and not pushing the subs as hard, but how can it so suddenly stop pushing them like it was.

Hmmm, let me see here. Did you mean to say you have TWO subs connected to this amp? A single sub can only be wired in series with the amp. Even if you have a capacitor wires in parallel, the capacitor is not a load, but a souce equivilant, and therefore can be merged with the amp as a single source when put on paper.
When they say a sub or amp is so many watts rms, that means that the device can function safely, without worry of failure. THERE IS NO LEGAL METHOD FOR DETERMINING THIS NUMBER AND NO REGULATIONS ON VARIANCES. Having said that, if an amp is 500w rms, it could very well push double that for long enough to blow your speaker. It all depends on how much power went through that speaker. So since you have a 4 ohm speaker, not two, and it would actually act like a two ohm speaker if you put another one in parallel because 4||4=2ohms equivilant. never never never, turn the bass all the way up if your gonna beat loud. Low frequencies draw lots of power and can damage your system.
you can tell if your speaker is blown by turning the volume to a medium listening level and placing your hand on the cone. you will hear a crackling sound if it is blown
If your amo is a subwoofer amp yes you want a LPF. Low pass filters are capable of passing low frequency energy. As far as the impedance of your amp goes check with the manufacturer for proper the proper load. What speaker config do you have?
2 DVC 8 ohms in parallel (voice coils) then series (speakers) are 8 ohms
2 DVC 4 ohm - in parallel (voice coils) then series (speakers) are 4 ohms
DVC is dual voice coil
Impedence for parallel is (Z1^-1+Z2^-1)^-1 or 1/((1/Z1)+(1/Z2))
Use those to figure out parallel impedance, series you just add them together.
if you get the 4ohm you can wire it to run a 2ohm an the kenwood amp will push 900 watts at 2ohms.they say it can push up to 1800 watts,that would be at 1ohm.that kenwood runs 500 at 4ohms an 900 at 2ohm.if you need help wiring the sub or anything else let me know bertman285@hotmail,com
Max Power Output
4 Ohm [14.4V]
500W x 1 [20-200Hz, 0.5%THD]
2 Ohm [14.4V]
900W x 1 [100Hz, 1.1%THD]
personally i wouldnt use a sony amp for powering anything but,however if your going run it what i would recommend is if the speakers are at 4 ohms then run in series per speaker then put the speakers in series as well so you will keep your 4 ohms then run the amp in mono,however just to let you know that amp will not push fubars enough to really make them thump my advice is to goto http://www.sonicelectronix.com if you have 200 dollars you can get a nice Hifonics TXi 1508D that will push those monsters quite well thats 1 ohm stable and will barley get warm even after hours of thumpage,also if your running subs monoblocks are the way to go hope this helps you out.
As i read your problem i can recommend you that connecting each of the hifonics amp to each hifonics sub with the same specs by getting the specs in interfacing the two or you can simply look to the output of the amp and the input of the sub and find a suitable plug that fits to them.
In the case if you want to run each hamp to individually run each sub but sharing 3 farad capacitor: what i can suggest is that you connect in parallel one connecting wire of each input or ouput of the amp or sub. Its like connecting a connector from each of the input or output of the amp or sub to one leg of the capacitor, and connecting two wires to the other leg, one is being connected to the amp or sub and the other wire is connected to the other amp or sub.
In the case of putting a circuit breaker at the car battery: what i can suggest is that you find an appropriate circuit breaker that fits the specs of the car battery then connect it in series on the positive supply or read the specs of the circuit breaker before you connect it to the battery. Having a circuit breaker is like having a fuse but with special advantages in favor of the circuit breaker.
In the case of having power to the amps you can run one power wire to the amps by dividing the power wire into two, one connected to the amp and the other wire to the other amp. Then you can connect each amp and sub in series individually by connecting one wire b/w amp and sub. I hope i solved your problem
