As long as the speakers are wired in parallel it should be ok dont wire them in series as they will overload the amp it is designed to run at 4 ohms

I have the Sony explode 1200 2/1 channel amp and 2 comp series lighting audio 10s 8ohm 900 watt max best way to hook up for loudest bass


You will have to wire subs together for a 4 ohm load. Then bridge amp (1 channel). Look on amp speaker outs to see what leads to use to bridge. Run positive and negative to one speaker then use a jumper wire from that positive and negative to the next speakers positive and negative

I have a 1200watt amp that's only providing 300watt output with 8ohm Behringer B212 speakers. Is there a resolution and what would it be?


I'd need to know more about the amp, but don't forget, amps are rated as their max power...
So lets take a 300W/channel stereo amp at 8 ohms.
Ok, it's stereo, so there's 600W
But the amp is capable of 4 ohm loads...well, now you can deliver 600W/channel, for a total of 1200W
In this scenario, your amp is doing exactly what it was designed to do with those speakers.
If you wanted to get the full 1200W out of the amp, you'd have to hook up 2 more speakers in parallel to the ones already there. This drops the impedance to 4 ohms per channel = 600W / channel.
Yes, the power is split among the apeakers...300W per speaker into 4 speakers = 1200W
so any way you look at it, there's your 1200W

Will a sony 600watt amp run a 10 300watt 4 ohm sub?


Yes, but the wattage numbers are pure marketing and have no bearing in reality or fact. In general, given realistic amplifier power specifications, a higher-powered amp will be a better and safer power source for any given speaker than an under-powered amp since the latter will probably have to go into severe distortion to produce the same loudness a high-powered amp can provide cleanly. Distortion kills speakers.

Troubleshooting amp setup


You probably need your remote wire re-hooked and make sure the ground wire is good and the remote wire is connected to the right wire(the red wire).

How many speakers can I use?


Hi,
This should work if channel 3 & 4 are bridged at 4 ohm.
channel 1 should be stable at 2ohm
channel 2 should be stable at 2 ohm
You can hook up the right side speakers together ( + with + and - with - ) . same thing with the left side. this will give you 2 ohm each channel. this will cause your amp to run hot (this might be tuff on the amp). It will give you right (2 speakers) and left ( 2 speakers ), no front and rear adjustement if you need to balance your sound. I think you should be better buying another amp for your sub and take your 4 channels for your 4 car speakers. this amp as a rca output that can feed the other amp ( sub amp ). it is possible to do it.

Good luck

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.
