Question about Sony Xplod XM-1652Z Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Sony Xplod 1000W workign strangely

I have 2 10" American Bas XO's wired at2 Ohm, and each one on a seperate channel to the Amp. (Sony Xplod XM-Z1852). It works fine until I start driving above about 5mph. Then it cuts on and off, but the protect/power light doesn't change. I will usually hit the first part of a note and then stop. The troubleshoot guide for the amp is because of temperature. I've adjusted the level on the amp, and on the head unit and it's still acting up.

I got Sony Xplod XM-ZR704 700W 4/3/2-Channel Car Stereo Amplifier and 12" sub. it play good for continuous 2 hours but after that starts tripping and goes on off. i checked all wires and connections.


Amp is probably over heating. Make sure the ohm load of speaker is good for that amp. This amp is not really built to handle a bridged 2 ohm load. Make sure ground wire is clean and tight to the body chassis.

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

    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

    Getting my son a sony xplod xm-1652 2 channel what subs would sound good and the things says 1000x2 and 500x2 what is the truth


    165 watts x 2 @ 4ohms and 200-230 watts@ 2 ohms or 400-460 watts bridged into a 4 ohm mono load is what the amp will actually do. A single 12 inch sub or a pair of 10 inch subs or 12s would be great

    What ohm is your sub running at. Sounds like your runnig your amp to low an impedance causing it to thermally shut down, when it cools a bit it turns back on. Either that or you have wires crossed somewhere. Check your wiring and make sure the load of the speaker does not fall below the rcommended ohm of the amp. Usually 4ohms mono and 2ohms stereo

    Bass hits, but quits.


    you will need a larger ground wire also try bolting it down in a new location if you have to scrape away any paint to bolt it to metal
    hope this helped

    Will a sony xm-1652z 1000w amp run 2 dvc 4 ohm 800 watt rms subs?and whats yhe best wiring option if so?thx


    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.

    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.
