Question about Sony Xplod XM-1652Z Car Audio Amplifier
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
