    Hi Sorry was just signing up.......incorrect the YELLOW is a direct connection to 12V + normally straight to battery, the BLUE is signal received by your stereo to actually turn your amp one RED is a 12v + Out when amp is on to power another 12V device only when amp is on via BLUE Signal Cable....Thanks

RED is for 12v POS, BLK is for GROUND, BLU is for REMOTE ON. Not sure about the yellow, probably an AUX ON/OFF.

YOU NEED NO CHACK THE GROUND CABLE SOMETIMES WITH THE SAME POWER THAT THE AMP NEED START TO BURN THE CABLES AND IF THE GAUGE OF THE CABLE IS NOT THE CORRECT CAUSES THAT PROBLEM TRY TO PUT 2 GROUND CABLES (GREY) IN DIFERENT PLACES AND IT MUST WORK!

20-Volt DC Power Supply instead of 12-Volt amp


Here's a few things that come to mind. An auto charging system will operate normally from about 11 Volts to about 14.5 Volts, depending on what is operating (lights, blower,etc), and whether the vehicle is at idle or not. Most car amps will operate from about 10.5 to 16.5 Volts, and outside that range, they will probably shut down.
Another consideration is your 20 volt power supply. You didn't mention if it is a DC power supply, but it needs to be. The other factor is its output, meaning its amperage rating. I'm figuring it will need to put about 5 amps, at the least, for the Sony to put out some watts. I think the line fuses of the Sony are rated @ 25 amps each.
I don't like this type of situation, because I want to say 'try it and see what happens" and I want to say 'don't do it, something may blow".
If you decide to try the 20Volt power supply, maybe if you put smaller rated fuses (say 10 amp) in the Sony amp, they will act as a fail safe. Good luck!

Need wiring diagram for Sony XM-E70 Equalizer/Amp


You need 1 thick ground cable ( usually brown)
you need 1 thick power cable ( same thickness and wire as ground usually red )
you should have 1 rem wire ( thin blue )
RCAs, 2 for sub, extra 2 for 2 speakers.
The rest I have no idea what they are.

You need speaker cables to sub or amp.

Some products use different colouring. Maybe the 9 pin connector is for head deck to speakers.

Problems with my sony xm-2100 gtx amp


check your wires and your ground wire it might be touching something causing it to spark and your amp to go on protect mode also check your fuses..also sometimes this works put your db and all your settings on your amp low as it can go sometimes its just to much power n hits like an impact.

Got a 12"kicker L74ohm sub and sony xm-D9001GTR mono amp


Hello juan_penaloz,

The Kicker L7 has an RMS power range of from 50-750 watts and a maximum power handling capability of 1,500 watts so your Sony amp will power it OK. A more powerful monoblock like the Alpine MRP-M1000 or the Kicker 08ZX750.1 would provide even more power and could operate safely at 2ohms.

You have the voice coils wired properly for the Sony amp. It's OK to have the sub impedance higher, but you definitely do not want it lower than the 4ohms the amp is rated at in bridged mode.

Hope this helps.
