Re: sony xplod xm-554zr amp

If you are trying to run some highs with built in high-pass crossovers off of a amp that is setup for subs(amp is on low-pass) then your highs will not work. You are better off running another amp or running them off of your deck...

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

    Xplod XM-554ZR Car Audio Amplifier: powr/protect light comes on red not green...

    Hi, disconnect all speakers from unit and try again - if red light still shows then your amp has died.
    If the light goes green, then start testing for shorted speaker/wiring. This includes speaker wiring to vehicle shorts - there should be an o/c reading on your meter

    sounds like maybe a speaker short, try unhooking your speakers and then powering up your amp, if it then powers up with the speakers unhooked try hooking up each speaker one by one untill the amp goes back into protection and then you have your bad speaker.

    Red light

    something is shorted in the circuit, or your subs. unhook the subs first and try it again, if it is still in protect then it is most likely the output transistors.
