Question about Sony XM-222 Car Audio Amplifier
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.

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.

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.
