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

    With a kenwood amp 1000watt 170rms x 2 ,how should i really wire these up!


    You haven't supplied any model #s so its impossible to say - but Kenwoods don't normally like 2 ohm mono loads.

    You're going to have to either use one channel @ 2 ohm... or use each subwoofer per channel on the amp.

    For a 2 Ohm mono load - wire all positives and all negatives from each sub to the amplifier's respective (bridged) terminals.

    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.

    2 MTX Thunder Problem.. Bridging?


    Is there a option on the chanels that say ''Bridged''? If so, you can hook the subs up in parellel or series to get different ohm loads. Usually the lower ohms, the more power amp puts out. Those subs can handle 225 watts RMS whitch means the power it can handle constantly. If the amp gives more than 225 watts RMs, you could be at risk of blowing the sub. If you could give me the model # of the amp, I can be of more help.

    I would like know whether a sony xplod subwoofer can be connected to my alpine car audio system! xplod sub woofer is 1100 watts.


    Deffinitely but wired directly would be pointless, the Alpine's internal amp is way to weak to get the best out of the sub. You need an amp, minimum 300w and bridge the outputs to give all the power to sub preferably switched to low-pass (most amps will have a high / low pass switch)

    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.
