Start by checking and making sure that you have excellent connections at power,ground, and signal. Depending on the voltage output of your rca wires if you are running rca's to your amp typicaly your amp gain should be only at half - you may be clipping the signal if you have the amp set too high. On your deck you will want your bass settings at only half -again too much boost will cause clipping at the amp. with all your settings adjusted and all possible connections checked- the only thing left to check is the compatibility of your subs in relation to the amp-by that im referring to the overall resistance-measured in OHMS that you are placing on the amp.Your amp is probably rated at about 150wattsx2 at 4 ohms or 200+watts x 2 into 2 ohms or 400-460watts into a 4 ohm bridged load. Look on the magnet of the speakers and find out if you have single coils or dual coils and see what the ohms(resistance) of each sub (or coils) are rated at- ideally you would want a set of dual voice coil 4ohm+4ohm per sub- that way you can match the subs better with your amp.---- Heres a scenario that may or may not apply to you- i see it all the time so im going to share it with you---- If you have a set of single voice coil 4 ohm subs and you are trying to run them wired in parallel to the amp in bridged -then that is why you amp is shutting down- you will have to wire the subs in series until you either get different subs that will yield an overall 4 ohm load -or find a different amp that will take a 2 ohm load - okay for now try wiring the subs in series and see if it still sends out an overcurrent light on you-good luck

I have a sony 100 watt amp and it wont stay on for very long


You need more current.Bass notes require more juice and the best way to get more power for bass is to add a power capacitor to your system . They are easy to install and you can get one for less than a hundred dollars that should be enough for your amp and subs.

My Sony Xxplode Amp Not Working?


Most amp problem is due to bad connection. Specially check the main power. Sometimes it will indicate you are getting voltage but not enough current because of bed connection. For example it is possible for the on indicator light to be on, but you are not getting enough 'juice' to let it operate. Check the main fuse at the front by the battery.

Check the wiring of the speakers (both inside the box and between the box and the amp). It sounds like one speaker is wired incorrectly at one connection point.

Sony xplod xm-1652z amp


You probably have the output bridged at 2 ohms. This amp is not a 2 ohm bridged stable amp. It is 2 ohm stable only in stereo. That means each channel can be 2 ohms, buts not bridged at 2 ohms.

If you have two 4 ohm speakers that are wired in parallel and then you bridge them, you have a 2 ohm load.

They only safe way to use two 4 ohm speakers is to run one speaker to each channel and then you have a stereo 4 ohm load.

When you use a 2 ohm load you get twice the current draw thru the amplifier as you would with a 4 ohm load. That means that the fuse you are using, the rating the amplifier is designed for, will blow any time you have a big bass hit.

If you are not using a 2 ohm bridged load, and you are using a 4 ohm bridged or something the amplifier is rated for, and you still have this problem, you may have a bad speaker. Even a speaker that will play can sometimes be on the brink of shorting out and causing the amplifier to draw lots more current than it is rated for.

If this is the case, you should go and get your speakers checked and see if they are still measuring at 4 ohms or at least close to it. Most speakers will measure a little lower than what the are rated. It is not unusual for a 4 ohm speaker to measure at 3.5 ohms, but if it is less than that, you problem is the speaker. Even if the speaker still plays.

I hope this was helpful for you, if you require any further help just ask.

If you did find that this was helpful in solving your problem, I would really appreciate a good rating.
Thanks and have a great day,
Dave

Overcurrent comes on when i turn up the volume on my head unit


The over-current LED tells you that you're driving a lod lower than the amp is rated to drive. You either have the wrong speaker ohm load, a shorted wire or a defective speaker.

Sony Xplod XM-1652Z Car Audio Amplifier cuts out when turned up loud


The best thing to do is to get a amp that is more watts than your subs, not the other way around, speakers are known to handel a lil more power but amps cant produce more power than they are capable of... your ground wire should be thick also, say 6 to 8 mm or so, and its best to put in a cap and an equalizer.

Sony XM-2100GTX Car Audio Amplifier sound but very low


If there is sufficient voltage at the amp, you may have blown the woofer. If you have another speaker, connect it to the amplifier to see if it plays normally. If not, the amplifier may have failed. Let me know what you find.
