Hey i kept having the same problem with mine
it does it cause it is hot so its a built in safty feature
make sure yr amp is not covered in any way or against the seat or something like that.

if you want also you can put some spacers between it and where you have it mounted with some longer screws obviously, and pices of ply wood or some htink of that nature for better air flow all around it. if you really want it to look good make the "feet" as i call them out of 2 3 pieces of 1" ply wood. say 2"x2"
stack and glue each layer together and then wrap them in some carpet to match yr sub box.
if then it still does it as said b 4 turn down yr knobs a bit i have mine at 3/4 of turn and bridged it sounds great and never shuts off any more

Green light comes on for a sec the red light comes on,1200 watt sony xplod amp 10'' Orion sub,I think the subs right around 3000 watts. What's wrong?:(


Your Sony Xplod amplifier turns on briefly (green light) then possibly senses a mismatch between the nominal output impedance of the amplifier and impedance of your Orion sub and goes into protect mode (red light) to prevent internal damage.

SUBWOOFER AND AMP


Check the RCAs and make sure they are still connected. Check the speaker wires (both inside and outside the box). Check the remote turn on wire.

TV comes on and then shuts off,and a small red l keeps flashing.


If its flashing red repeating groups of three then the lamp door is not detected .
If its flashing in groups of four then a fan is not starting.Look in the vent in the back and spray some canned air into then big fan on the left(looking at it from the back) .That fan may be failing and has gotten to a place where it can't quite start again and just moving it a little with some air will make it work for a while.
If its not one of those two things let me know.

Ps3 locking up


yes, this must be a problem with your blu-ray reader . did you try to run another bluray disc game ?

you should try:
  • restoring system settings
  • reinstalling possible game files.
  • look for possible game updates
  • reinstalling sony firmware (re-update via USB)
if nothing of this works, you should take the system to a support centre for verify possible hardware damage .

I had the same problem as you. The problem is the wiring from your speakers to your amp TRIPLE check your wiring. Make sure that none of them got disconnected or connected to the wrong wire.

Is amp big enough for speakers


Hello,

To run 2 subs, the amp would be a little small. The subs will run OK, they just won't be very loud.

It's usually better to compare and match up the RMS power rather than the peak power. The Sony XS-L10P5B sub has a peak power handling figure of 1200 watts, but the RMS is 300 watts. The Sony XM-ZZR3301 monoblock amp puts out 1100 watts peak, but only 330 watts RMS. They would work great together, 1 sub, 1 amp. But if you add another sub, each one would only be getting about 165 watts. They'd work OK, just not as loud as they could be.

Hope this helps!

Repeated blown subs


Unfortunately some of these speakers today... DO NOT PERFORM up to peak as they should.The on logical reason for this to be happening it that the speakers are NOT very DURABLE and cannot take constant playing. I would recommend to L7 the can take alot more abuse than your average speakers. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

AMP shuts off


your problem could be in the fact that you are trying to overdrive the amp. sony will not carry a 1 ohm stable load and if your speaker are 4 ohm speakers wired in series then you cant drive the bass your looking for. try using soundstream tarantula amp or new hifonics block mono class d amp with about 1000 watts rms. what kicker subs do you have? that will also make the difference in amp choice. im running tarantula on 4 polk momo 4 ohm 12's and has broke my back glass in my jeep twice one time was for a show. oh well let me know. happy boom boom. i'll be glad to help
