Question about Sony XM-222 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Which are the best speakers i should use with my sony amp 222

I want to change my speakers in my old car. Which speakers should i buy for this. A car decor shop told me to get a pioneer 500 w speakers. They will be good for it. Please suggest me some speakers. I was thinking of going for rockford or kicker. I love bass in my car but vocals are always a preference over bass and i am really not interested in getting a bass tube.

Rockford is great for bass and your two way speakers. Alpine still controls the three way speakers that I would suggest for wanting the strong vocals with less bass. Too much bass bad so I would ignore most input from "audio" guys. They always over build the bass side, balance is the key.

If you have your subs wired to the amp in a bridged configuration, try wiring one to each stereo channel instead. Also, make sure your ground wire is secure and connected to a clean, solid metal part of the vehicle body with the paint scraped off. If this doesn't work, disconnect both subs and try connecting only one at a time; one of the subs may have a problem that is shutting down the amplifier.

SOURCE: sony xplod 500w 4/3 channel

If the speaker is a 4 ohm DVC (two 4 ohm coils), you can't wire it to get a single 4 ohm load. Try connecting one coil to each of the two rear channels. It may not be as loud but the amp should operate without going into protection.

If the two 4 ohm coils are in parallel, the amp is driving a 2 ohm mono load. That's probably why it's shutting down.

SOURCE: I'm planning on installing a system in my pick-up

First of all use the larger output amp to power the sub. You can tell if its free-to-air if in the middle of the magnet there is a hole for "air" to flow freely. The advantage of free to air is they dont require much of an enclosure or next to none so you can mount it on a single piece of mdf wood and use the cab in the truck as an enclouse itself. I would bridge the amp for the sub to mono but be careful to tune so you dont "distort". Secondly the amp for the mid's shouldn't be bridged any maybe you could run the front and rear speakers off the same amp.. I would get an amp for rear and front speakers each and one for the sub. Your ouput rca's should goto the cross-over first then to the amp (sub) - then wired to your sub (mono) which is bridged. Ensure to tune your cross-over to lowest frequency for sub. Its easy to bridge an amp if its 4 channel.. looking at the speaker terminals it will look like ( + - + -) use the two outer most terminals to bridge to mono.

I have a Boss 4x50watt in-dash stereo, 2 Pioneer 270-watt max/ 40 watt nominal rear speakers, and 2 Pioneer 500 watt peak/ 80 watt rms front speakers. Do I need to buy an amplifier? Or is does the head...


You do not need to buy an amp, the only reason to buy one is if you do not think it is loud enough when you turn up the volume to max. The speakers you have can take more power than your stereo can provide, but you only need to add an amp to get more power if you want it to play louder than it does now.

Speakers for pioneer vsx 1018


I think you're making this way more complex than it is.

This unit should have no trouble with any reputable speaker. Don't read too much into short term impedance readings as long as you run only one speaker per channel. Every speaker has a dip somewhere in its frequency range and the Pioneer will probably protect itself and the speaker should impedance or current get too out of whack. This is a high end unit and has plenty of clean power to feed any speakers out there.

I'd buy it if I didn't already have a 6-year old predecessor (VSX-T36TX) that I paid twice as much for and has only 5 amplified channels, less features and lower power output. ;-(

Good luck and happy listening!

Not satisfy with the sound of my system


This Unit has got a 4x60w amp built in.

On it's own the subwoofer will not work, you need to buy a Monoblock amplifier, a wiring kit and a set of RCA leads to run it.

The RCA leads plug into the SUB output RCA sockets on the back of the headunit.

The OEM speakers in your car will not be of great quality, so it would be wise to change them. If you do, you need to buy speakers that have a rating of no less than 90watts, any thing less and they will sound distorted.

Any car audio shop will be able to help you select the right size and rating to suit your car. They may even fit it all for a charge.

Hope this helps

Pioneer SUCKS!! After buying a GPS and being told upfront by Pioneer that a upgrade will be aval. in 90 days for a modest cost, it takes them almost 9 months to come up with it. Then they have the nerve to ask $150 for the upgrade after people have paid $300 to $500 for their GPS. I will never buy a Pioneer product again. I switched to a TOM TOM and it works better, no upgrade problems and over all it cost me less than that POS Pioneer.
