Use a bigger ground wire for amp and protect mode will stop clipping and shutting amp off also make sure power wire and ground wires aren't the same size ground bigger .............if this doesn't help change settings on amp to lower power
easiest way to set amp is (turn the knobs on amp all down turn up your system to the level you listen to normally and then set the amp knobs for bass turn knob slow to set properly but i think the ground needs to be bigger and maybe moved to a new location
hope this helped

Sony amps are cheap and get hot quickly. that amp doesnt really put out that many watts without either damaging the speaker or itself.

So I have the first kickers that came out the 15 will a 800 watt amp push um without eather blowin out


If you are referring to the Kicker L5 solo-baric subwoofer, then an 800 watt peak amp will not blow even one of those subs. The L5 is capable of handling 1000 watts peak and 500 wrms. An 800 watt peak amp will usually have around 400 wrms. Underpowering the subwoofer will not hurt the amp or the sub(s).

I have a 2 channel amp pionner gm 510t 760 watt and i have 2 subs how do i hook them up for the most kick and the hardest pound do i run them series or bridged or whats the best way ????


If you bridge it, it makes 2 channels one channel so you can only have it going to one sub. So you'd have to run them in series and have one sub per channel. If you want lots of bass you need to turn the gain up and adjust the settings on the head deck.

Support Question about RMS


you are going to need an amp that can supply the right amount of rms power to make it sound good. these sony subs are rated for 380 watts rms. so in order to find an amp that will supply two, you must multiply that figure by two. so you will need an amp that can supply around 500 to 750 watts continuously (or rms). also you are going to want an amp that is either class d or class ab rated. these amps are built to push subwoofers exclusively and will give you the best efficiency and sound out of your subs. you will also want to get an amplifier is a monoblock amp, and not a stereo amplifier. make sure the amp can put out that rms rating at 2 ohms as two 4 ohm speakers equal 2 ohms wired in parallel. i have a kenwood kac9152d that puts out about 2000 watts max at 2 or 1 ohms (900 watts rms) that i used with my two sony xplod 10's for about 2 years. it was kick ***! now i dont know if you need that much power but they will handle it as long as you dont push them too hard for long periods of time, otherwise you might end up blowing them up! (depending on the box size that is, and the quality of it as well...)

i have years of car audio installation experience and can help with setting up and wiring any mobile entertainment system you can imagine. may i ask what kind of music you listen to and what kind of box do you have for these subwoofers?

if you have any questions email me at thadoggma420@hotmail.com

Amp overcurrent problem


Disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down (overcurrent), the amp likely has blown output transistors.
