The crossover wires have absolutely nothing to do with your cd player, all you do is wire your crossovers into the speaker slots on the amp and then wire your mid-range speakers and tweaters into the crossovers. All a crossover does is it splits the power from the amp to your mid-range speakers and your tweaters.

Have mex bt2600 sony xplode car cd player ::: also have sony xplode amp model no.xm 754sx problem is i want to hook up a subwoofer and the amp to the head unit (also currently have 2 sony xplode 3ways...

If the Sony front end unit (stereo) has RCA jacks (Left and Right) in the back it's an input to the Xplode amp. If that's right then the Subwoofer putputs should plug or wire into the Xplode amp. I haven't hooked these up for some time but try a search on Youtube with the units you describe I'm more than 90% sure that there are videos there.

How do u know if A sony xplode XM-552ZR amp is on and how do u connect it to a sony xplode cdx-gt570 head unit.

Just to the left of the output (speaker) terminals, near the top of the amp, there's an LED marked "POWER/PROTECTOR". If the amp is connected properly and powered on, the LED is ON.

If the amp is being used for normal speakers, use a pair of RCA cables and connect the left/right channels to the appropriate inputs on the amp. The switch marked "LPF" should be "OFF".

If the amp is being used with the channels bridged for a subwoofer, use an RCA "Y" adapter and connect the single "Sub Out" preamp output from the head unit to both amp inputs. The switch marked "LPF" should be "ON" and the crossover set to about 80-100Hz.

If your radio is still playing and the subs are giving you music, you most likely have the amp remote wire hooked to a constant power source on the radio. Generally, this is a solid blue wire on both the radio and the wiring harness. It allows the radio to turn the amp on and off when the radio is on or, subsequently, off.

Sony xplode cd player sub problems

Switch your blue wires around.

You have put the remote antenna wire to the remote turn on of the amplifier. The radio cuts off the power to the "power antenna" when you switch to a different mode... so your amplifier is now losing the turn on signal it requires to stay on.

Simple 2 minute fix.

Make sure you don't have a short circuit somewhere. Make sure the wiring is all intact.

Speakers cut off when bass goes up...

it might be that your wires from your amp to your subs are too thin. since they were relatively new the first three months, they were probably undamaged, but after pushing them too much, they probably have broken wires, and can't get enough power to the subs when turned up, i suggest getting thicker wires before investing in a capacitor, it could save you money.
