AMP FOR MY SONY SUBBS

The subs are in the back of my dodge extended cab, they are in a sealed box, so what would you suggest to push them any thing would be better than what I had on them?

Get an amplifier that is rated just under the power ratings of the subs, that way you will not blow the subs by pumping in too much power to them. An example is, if you have 2 subs that are 500 watts each and you are going to connect them in stereo mode, you need an amp that is no more than about 400 to 450 watts per channel. This will push them very hard, but will not blow them by overdriving them. If you are going to connect 2 subs at 500 watts each in a bridged mode (in parallel across both channels) then you need an amplifier that is about 800 to 900 watts total power for both channels. This is basically the same power ratings for an amp, but some amps are mono (just one channel) and will have just a total power rating, while other amps are 2 or 4 channel amplifiers and have a rating for each channel.

I hope this helps in your decision making, if you need more help let me know. I have been repairing car audio equipment for almost 20 years and have seen just about everything.

I have 2 sony xplod 4ohm subs rated 350w rms and 1200w max, i have them in really shallow boxes because i drive a single cab toyota, i know these subs **** but i do also know that they can hit alot harder...


the premier amp is better since it has a better rms rating (360w total or 160w each sub) than the eclipse (280w if you bridge all 4 channels which isn't possible but 140w for each speaker bridging 2 channels per speaker). Neither are going to push your subs but if you get another amp wiring kit and use one amp per sub they will sound a lot better and you could just hook both power wire and ground wires from the bridged channels to the power and ground terminals for the sub. That would be my suggestion since the subs are rated at 350w and each amp is 280w and 320w which will push but not blow the subs.

Check your fuses. This a common thing that can come up often if you have changed from stock stereo equipment to after market, or just because of old fuses.

Once you locate the fuse box, it should give you a diagram of which fuses go to the different lighting systems in your car. Replace them and the problem should be fixed.

If the problem is not fixed from that, then have your wiring checked throughout the truck.

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

My car subwoofers work, but theres no bass


turn them off and carefully push in on the cone (gently) and listen for scratching or scraping- push strait in and they should flow freely in and out if they DO without feeling or hearing scraping the subs are probably ok, next its either the amp is not powerful enough or the box is not soundly built, by that i mean its too small for the subs- is the box ported or sealed? if ported try plugging off the vent temporarily and see if bass increases if it does i would permanently seal the box

Optimum set up


0.6 cu ft per driver is awfully small for those subs. The polyfill may help, but I doubt it's going to make the subs feel like they're in a box 2x the size. It's sounding more and more like you may have the wrong subs for the situation. You may want to see about getting some different speakers (10's maybe?) that are tuned for a smaller box and 4 ohms each.

1000 watt amp sony xplod


That's not a 1000w amp. It's a 400 watt amp when loaded to it's lowest rated load. If you have one speaker per channel (the only safe load if you have single 4 ohm coil speakers), you're only getting 165 watts/speaker. It's probably distorted because you're driving it to clipping.
