That burping noise may in fact be down to the sound leads from the head unit to the amp being slightly (about 0.5 mm) loose on the connection. Try cleaning the connections and push them on good. They sometimes come loose over time or when your fiddling with the wires sliding the head unit in! If that doesn't solve it check the earth lead as if it's not in direct contact with metal or loosely fitted, it will cause feedback to some form. My subs moved when I closed the doors for example!

Hello,
This amplifier can only be bridged for a single subwoofer with an output rating of 380 watts bridged. The amp is not rated for 1000 watts.
The burping noise you here is the electronic switch discharging power off on the large capacitor that are used in high performance amplifiers. Regards, rcampsr

Check your subwoofer for resistance. It is more likely you blew a sub than a channel on the amplifier. If your subwoofer has no resistance, which can be checked using a multi-meter, then it is blown.

Is the sony xplod cdx-gt71w able to support a subwoofer without another amp


Sure is.

The sony is bridgable as follows:

  • 100W x 4 @ 4 Ohm
  • 100W x 2 + 250W x 1 @ at 4 Ohm

  • This will allow 2 channels to run 100 watts each @ 4ohms with an additional single channel with 250 watts @ 4 ohms.


    The single sub channel is created by bridging channels 3 & 4

    I Have a Sony Xplod 800 watt amp and 2 12 inch Sony Xplod subs


    You should definately bridge them. Firstly, lay the 2 speakers face down next to each other. Note the connections +- +-. The first + will go to the amplifier. The next terminal(-) will be connected to the next speaker(+). Take the last(-) and connect to amplifier. Please note that your amplifier has a bridge section which is normally the first + and the last- on the two channels. Connect your woofers on the bridge.

    How should i arrange the wiring on my xm-zr1852 xplod amplifier to get the best performance out of my 12'' audiobahn subwoofers?


    it depends on the impedance of the subs-if your subs are dual 4 ohm coils then you can parallel the coils which will give you 2 ohms per sub- you could get max performance from your amp by just wiring the 2 ohm speaker load to each channel of the amp which will hit them with about 200 watts rms each. another way to do it is to wire the coils in series which will make each sub an 8 ohm load and then parallel them together and that will show a 4 ohm load -which you can use to run the amp safely in bridged mode. This will give you exactly the same amount of power to your subs as in 2 ohm stereo will. so with your amp being 2 ohm stable in stereo or 4 ohm stable in bridged mode- those are the numbers you want to hit for maximum"safe" operation

    I have 2 1100watt sony xplods will they run off a 1000 watt amp


    yes it will work, but it will only put out the power to the sub that the amp allows, ie : 100 watt amp puts out 100 wats.
    you can also try reconfigering your wire to your subs, if your amp is 1ohm stable and your subs you can come off the amp with a bridge and run subs in series or parralell, this will dramaticly improve the bass

    Can I run 8 speakers and 1 sub through 1 1200watt 2:1 Sony Xplod?


    asuming the 8s are 4ohms each; wire two in series and that gives you 8ohms then two more in series then you put those together in parallel and it gives you a 4ohm load. repeat with other four for the other side. you should then be able to bridge the sub


    series; posative of one speaker to negative of other speaker and that doubles your ohms

    parallel; posative to posative negative to negative and that cuts the ohms in half

    Sub power hadling capacity


    Yes. If the rated power is 380W and the Max power is 1000W then it will handle it. Subs fry when clipping occurs. Clipping is when the amplifier is pushed past its capabilities and the output to the sub gets "dirty". The better quality the amp, the safer it will be on your speakers. It is also important to remember that the gain control on the amplifier is NOT a volume control to boot the sound, it is only to match the output from the headunit to the input handling of the amp. Cranking the gain up too much WILL CAUSE CLIPPING.

    Sony Xplod XM-1652Z Car Audio Amplifier cuts out when turned up loud


    The best thing to do is to get a amp that is more watts than your subs, not the other way around, speakers are known to handel a lil more power but amps cant produce more power than they are capable of... your ground wire should be thick also, say 6 to 8 mm or so, and its best to put in a cap and an equalizer.
    Cheers
