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

If all co0nnected properly and working except the woofers only thing to check is to disconnect the bridge and try to connect regularly one woofer at a time to see if it still works.

    OK, it seems your amp is receiving power but is not transmitting signals to your subs. You have to work this way out startingwith the cable between amp and subs. Check if it works and if it is connected properly. You can check it by connecting it to another speaker (prefereably a car speaker) and see if that produces any sound. To be sure it is not the cable, also connect that other speaker to the same connection on the amp with a different cable. If no succes in both tests, your amp is not giving any signal on it's speaker terminals.

    In that case you have to verify if the amp is receiving any signal.

Anyone know what the rms is per channel on xr-3693 1000w amp? Is it 250 apiece? And if i bridge sub..will that make it at 500rms?


I would assume this is 1000W peak-to-peak, so divide by 2.83 = 350 rms, or 88W rms per channel.

See link for bridging information:

What would be the best settings on a pyramid arctic 1000 watt amp for one JL audio w1 12


Your sub is a 4ohm woofer, running it in bridged mode + on right connection - on left connect as market on sub will give the best output. Your sub is rated at 75w to 300w and in this configuration will be getting just over 100w which about all the amp can provide with your sub/amp combo.
I don't know where they get the 1000w rating from either? the maximum the amp can possibly provide is 150w if running a 2ohm woofer in bridged mode.

Sony Xplod Amplifier Problem


First make sure you are using at least a 12 guage speaker wire for sub connections. Second make sure you have plenty of breathing room in your mounting position, these things need air badly. Third of all, Xplods are not very friendly if they are cranked all the way up on your dB boost knob. Only crank it about 3/4 of the way up, then use your equalizer settings to tweak the thump.

Bass sounds flat when volume is increased


probably your power is too short, increase your gauge wire, and your ground wire of the amplifier has to be shortly as possible, and the positive has to be enough to support peak power, you can also put a big capacitor on the positive wire to give some more power while the bass peak.

Sub power hadling capacity


Yes. If the rated power is 380W and the Max power is 1000W then it will handle it. Subs fry when clipping occurs. Clipping is when the amplifier is pushed past its capabilities and the output to the sub gets "dirty". The better quality the amp, the safer it will be on your speakers. It is also important to remember that the gain control on the amplifier is NOT a volume control to boot the sound, it is only to match the output from the headunit to the input handling of the amp. Cranking the gain up too much WILL CAUSE CLIPPING.

Sony Xplod 1000 watt car amp quit working.


Almost all after market amps use 12v at very very low amperage to trigger the amp on. A temporary jumper from the battery plus terminal on the amp AFTER the battery and ground wires are attached should cause the amp to turn on. I would check to see if you have attached your speaker load correctly ESPECIALLY if you are bridging. Most of the blown amps that come into my shop are due to incorrect bridging loads from the speakers. Note that a 4ohm load bridged across both outputs of an amp will deliver a 2ohm load to each of the channels. When you parallel wire two 4ohm speakers together and then attached them to a bridged amp you will be putting a 1 (one) ohm load to each channel of the amp. Please don't make this mistake. It will fry your amp in about a month. Hope this helps. Good luck.
