Personally i wouldnt use a sony amp for powering anything but,however if your going run it what i would recommend is if the speakers are at 4 ohms then run in series per speaker then put the speakers in series as well so you will keep your 4 ohms then run the amp in mono,however just to let you know that amp will not push fubars enough to really make them thump my advice is to goto http://www.sonicelectronix.com  if you have 200 dollars you can get a nice  Hifonics TXi 1508D that will push those monsters quite well thats 1 ohm stable and will barley get warm even after hours of thumpage,also if your running subs monoblocks are the way to go hope this helps you out.

Will a SONY XPLOD XM1652Z 2 CH 1000 watts hold two 12in subs?


should do easily though you may need to employ the use of a cross over just incase something goes pop and burns you're car out when you park it after you've been hammering the subs.

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

I have a Sony Xplod XM-1652Z 1000 W. I am using it to power my 2 Infinity 10" subs with 1052 watts on each Max. My problem is that when i turn on the volume too high the subs would stop working. My friend...


Sony audio products are not worth the buck, you will be facing worst problems in the future, my advice is just to change the amps. It is causing the problem, it cant handle frequencies when volume is turned up. and it may say 1000 watts but actually this is the peak rating your amp can handle thus meaning that it couldnt handle constant high volume usage, try crunch, kicker or hifonics amp, and look at the RMS rating on the amps when shoping.

How do i bridge 3 subs to a 4 channel amp


My information shows the XM-1652Z as being a 2-channel amp. It will not be stable below 4-ohms in bridged mode. For best power, your subs will need to be 2-ohms with all 3 wired in series. This will present a 6-ohm load to the amp. After wiring the subs in series, connect the positive speaker wire to one channel (+) and the negative speaker wire to the other channel (-). For the 1652Z no other wiring is necessary. For subs you will also want to set the LPF (80Hz) switch to the "ON" position (to the right).

Keep in mind that the rated output is only 400 watts RMS at 4-ohms in bridged mode. That's kinda wimpy for 3 subs. You would probably obtain better results from two 2-ohm subs, each connected to a separate channel. That way each sub would be getting 200 watts RMS, still low but there's lots of good subs that will sound pretty loud with 150-200 watts

Sub wiring


IF THE RMS IS 800 THEN THAT IS THE MINIMUM YOU SHOULD RUN TO THEM. IF THE MAX IS OVER 1000 WATT, YOU SHOULD BRIDGE ONE SPEAKER TO EACH CHANNEL. YOU WILL PUSH THE MOST POWER TO THEM THAT WAY. MORE POWER = MORE BASS

Can a 1000 watt amp run 800 rms subs and best wiring option


yeah it will run them but you won't get your full power because the rms for your subs is high. try bridging them with some 8 gauge wire, and of you got a crossover it will help you out alot

IT WILL POWER THE SUBS WITH NO PROBLEM. I WILL NEED TO KNOW WHAT THAT MAX WATT THE SPEAKERS CAN HANDLE BEFORE GIVING PROPER ADVISE. RMS IS RECOMMENDED MINIMUM SETTINGS.

Amplifier and subwoofer


Yes, it should have little trouble. You will be best to keep it 2-channel and get another Sub. then run both. if you bridge it you will blow your 1 Sub. DON'T FORGET to put a in-line Low Pass Crossover in front of the Amp. OR any Sub.(one for each if you do go for 2) as they were never made for the high frequencies. An adjustable one is best for fine tuning. In thory you have a 600 watts buffer that way. If you do it Mono you are 400 watts over. If you want to go Mono you will need over 2000 watts on the Sub. end to turn it right up. Oh and some good ear-plugs if you want it loud whilst you are inside the car.

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
