Sony xplod 1200 watt

Hey i have a 1200 watt sony xplod competition amp 5 channel hooked up to a 12 inch audiobahn in the my trunk the amp is in my backseat and when i turn it up past 25/35 volume the amp cuts out and a red light flashes on the top of the amp. at first i thought it was over heating but then it persisted even at night... this amp has never given me trouble like this... im thinking maybe the fuses are dead or maybe the one under my hood is. Any help will be greatly appreciated

I had the same ploblem with my amp then i found out i didnt have a good enough ground. Make sure you groung it to your weel well or some part of the frame. Or you mite be running with a fuse thats pushing to much power i use a 100a fuse 5 gage power cord to power my 1200w xplode and my 2 12" kicker comps. Or if your using two diff kind of subs then you amp is confused in why your asking for 500w on one side and 600w on the other this will also make your amp light come on.

Amp going into protection


Is the amp bridged? If you only have one speaker connected to it, I sure hope so. How much power can that speaker safely handle and what is the impedance of the speaker? 2,4,8 ohm? A 1200 watt amp with only one speaker may be too much amp.

Red power/protector light


The amplifier has gone into protect mode and will stay in that mode until the cause is corrected.

Hey i have a sony amp (600 watt xm-zr604) with 2 10"sub(sony xplod).when i raise the volume hight enough the amp go off(red light came on) what can i try


sounds as though (at high volumes) the amp thinks it has a short circuit. This may be caused by the way you have them connected.
Speakers have a resistance and amps needs a certain amount of resistance to function right (too little resistance = short circuit)
The way it works out for the speakers is, if the two are connected to one amp output channel, the amp will see half of the resistance of a single sub. (4 Ohms/sub amp sees 2 Ohms)
If the amp instructions say that it's 4 Ohms/channel then you need to use 1 channel for each sub.
Hope this has been some help.

Hi,


Most fan cooled amplifiers would be fine on its side provided the flow of air is not impeded. Unless it's been modified the probability of a wire falling into the blades is pretty small. Where you may want to be concerned is if it's a convection cooled amplifier which would depend heat rising away from heat producing components and their heat sinks. Placing this type of amp on its side could reduce the efficiency of its cooling capabilities possibly causing it to thermally shut down and/or shorten its lifespan.


Please accept the solution if it's helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.

I have a 1200 watt sony xplod amp hooked up to a 15" SBL Gorilla sub. The bass hit for a while and then started to cut off. Now it wont work unless i touch the remote wire to the power wire, and even then...


this kind of problems usually happen when the amp is not getting enough current to power up the  
 amp. the moment a loud low frequency hits the amp it fails. cud be ur power unit not giving enough power to the amp or u have a loose connection somewhere on ur power line. besides 8gauge is a bit small. try using about 4gauge. should have good ground too. they draw large current so ur battery should be in top condition as well.

I hooked this 1000 watt amp up.it turns on but it


Your amp needs to be serviced. Bad protection circuit. Take it to a local car audio shop and have them bench test it first to be sure. Hope this helps.
